PAUL COUTTS has told GRAHAM WESTLEY at PRESTON NORTH END that he will be leaving at the end of the season. After their falling out earlier in the season, their relationship hasnt been the best and COUTTS has a number of clubs in League 1 and the Championship offering him an escape route.(22)(5)Westley is going to lose the bulk of the players. Mellor, Hume, & Coutts are leaving having all fallen out with a manager who took our club from 7 points off the play offs to 7 points off relegation. Westley will be gone by Christmas as most of the fans hate him.As a PNE fan for 30 years. I cant stand Westley. Has caused huge trouble since he arrived and most of the team hate do the fans. Get rid of him and keep CouttsIm not a westley fan but my veiws on him and his managerial way is changing,results and performances have got better and we are turning into a fitter team. i would get rid of coutts,mellor and maybe the injury prone hume. give the guy at least a season and you never know whats around the corner.Yeah....League 2. It's 1 win in 7, a growing reputation for promoting hoofball and violence on the pitch and the death of the beautiful game at Preston. I know Tom Finney must be crying everytime he watches us play. sad times at a once great club.Why are you saying us when clearly if you was a pne fan you.d know that we do not play long ball so stop stiring garbage you mug.Right I am sick of all these rumors saying Coutts has fell out with Westley.This is totally untrue The reason these rumors are spread is the fact that Coutts is a good player and lost the captincy.Westley was right to take the captincy away so Coutts could concentrate on his own game. Ihappen too know they have a good working relationship and judging by the massive hug Coutts gave Westley i would say they like each other as well.Well said mate people have been making up carp about pne since westley came and im also sick to death of it. {Ed003's Note - They did fall out,along with Carlisle aswell,maybe coutts made up with him}PNE fans.....face it, the guy doesnt know what he's doing. His record so far speaks for itself.....a worse average than Paul Simpson. With Coventry, Portsmouth, & Doncaster dropping down and the 3 teams from the play off still in League 1 it's going to be even tougher next season....I cant see Westley change the way PNE play in just 8 weeks during the closed season.....and with PNE in debt by 30m, still losing around 200k a month & the fan numbers dropping game after game (24k stadium...only 9k fans most games)....where are you going to get the 2m - 3m to sign 3 or 4 quality players you need to compete in League 1....even a Stevenage player is going to cost you 500k+ . 22 players out of the 45 at PNE are getting the boot in 2 weeks.....most on Free's......The clubs in free fall, with a manager who wont be there come Xmas.....but I do think he's doing a great job....UTPCouttsy is one of those players who have read to much of there own good press and subsequently believe they are worldbeaters! Westley wants workhorses and team players. If Couttsy leaves it will be becuase he cant hack the new team ethos. Rather like Keith Tracey at Burnley ooops sorry gone on loan! now there's a surprise!I’m a Charlton fan and know nothing about PNE’s current situation but would like to add this to your debate; we won 2 of our last 18 games in the 2010-11 season and we are also in 30m + debt. We had to have a clearout of players some of whom were still on Championship/prem level wages and I’d say only one we have missed (Jose Semedo now at Shef Wed). I heard yesterday that the board very nearly replaced Chris Powell at that point with Jon Still, how glad am I that they never.

What took place over the summer convinced me to renew a season ticket that I have held for 17 years (I very nearly gave up). We sold Carl Jenkinson to Arsenal and used the money (apparently not much more than 1m) to rebuild, adding a lot of free transfers too. The results speak for themselves.

I’m not saying that’s going to happen but at some point you have to wipe the slate clean and start again with bright hopeful players that have some ambition, a fire in their belly. They need not cost the earth either, the one thing you do need is unity. At this level there are always clubs in trouble that you can pick up good players from (250K bought Bradley Wright-Phillips and the above mentioned Jose Semedo was a free). Don’t be frightened of change, be radical and cut deep only keep the players that really want to be there. Best of luck to you.I’m a Charlton fan and know nothing about PNE’s current situation but would like to add this to your debate; we won 2 of our last 18 games in the 2010-11 season and we are also in 30m + debt.

Best of luck to you.Ed westley never fell out with carlisle he just wanted him to be a fulltime player and he could.nt really commit to that because of his fa commitments. Your just as bad as the critics mate. {Ed001's Note - funny that as the PFA commitments are designed to be fitted around the career of a professional footballer....}The future is bright and white, Proud Preston will be back - keep the faith!"keep the faith"....It seems 30% of PNE fans cant be bothered. Down to 9,000 fans (PNE count season ticket holders that dont turn up) so 8,500 really. Cant see you get more than 5,000 ST holders next season and your TV money is just how are you going to fund this re-build on 1.5m when at least 10 teams (above you) are better equiped, richer and hungrier to get out of League 1. Cant see you doing it next season with Westley...sorry!

Alex McLeish will walk away from the Villa job this week. It is understood to be by the termination of the contract!
Where did you hear this, ED any truth?? {Ed003's Note - We've not heard that }(11)(25)I really hope so we are going nowhere and will probably get relegated next season.He's done it so many time through out his career, wouldn't be suprised to see him do it again..I was drinking with Eck's brother after the Aberdeen v Hibs semi in Glasgow on Saturday. This is nonsense.I think villa fans want to wake up,you are run on a shoestring,mcleish aint that bad,when he is aloud to buy a better class of player then judge.Being with his brother means nothing.... Alot of stories are circulating around the midlands that he will be pushed by Randy

Gary Hunter to sign for Southport in the Summer(11)(4) 



16 Apr 2012 19:00:02
Nicolas Gaitan is NOT going to Utd,
Fabio however will go out on loan,
Macheda is staying put.
Utd's key targets remain as Hazard
and Birmingham keeper Jack Butland.(6)(17)


16 Apr 2012 16:41:12
Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman has identified 5 top transfer targets for the summer ahead, amid disillusion surrounding the club's playing style. Freedman wants to change back to Palace's successful 4-4-2 formation after seemingly securing a tight defence and is targetting the following strikers to play up front alongside target man Glenn Murray:
-Simeon Jackson, NORWICH CITY Free Transfer (depending whether he is released)
-Chris Martin, NORWICH CITY £500,000
-Martin Paterson BURNLEY Unknown Fee
-Erik Huseklepp PORTSMOUTH (unlikely as expected Premier interest)
-Sam Baldock WEST HAM UNITED Loan Deal
-Max Clayton CREWE ALEXANDRA £200,000
(Freedman is only looking to sign up to 2 of these players)
For midfield, Freedman is looking to bring in some recognised wingers with flair to replace Darren Ambrose, who will likely to be shuffled into one of the central midfield positions or possibly sold on as he will have just 12 months remaining on his contract. Potential signings include:
-Kerim Frei FULHAM Loan Deal
-Alex Kacaniklic FULHAM Loan Deal
-Nick Powell CREWE ALEXANDRA £250,000-700,000
-Gareth McCleary NOTTINGHAM FOREST Free Transfer (depending whether he is released)
-Hal Robson-Kanu READING Loan Deal
(Freedman wants 2 wingers, but these are just some of many potential acquisitions)
With Nathaniel Clyne seemingly looking likely to leave the club as his contract expires, Palace would receive between £1.5-3 million for his services amid FA regulations. Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Newcastle United and Southampton retain serious interest in the player. As this looks inevitable, Freedman is pondering the position of RB as well as CB as Anthony Gardner may well decide against signing an extension, leaving Paddy McCarthy the only recognised 1st team centre back. His targets include:
-Mustapha Dumbuya DONCASTER ROVERS Free Transfer
-Martin Cranie COVENTRY CITY Unknown Fee
-Matthew Connolly QPR £500,000-1 million (Reading may be favourites)
-Luke Chambers NOTTINGHAM FOREST Free Transfer (depending upon whether he is released)
-Even Hovland MOLDE Unknown Fee (unlikely because of stature)
-Paul McShane HULL CITY Free Transfer
(Freedman will want a RB and 2 CBS possibly one for backup)
To raise funds further, Freedman may well allow the following to leave:
Calvin Andrew Free Transfer (almost certain)
Antonio Pedroza Loan back to Jaguares (likely)
Andy Dorman £100,000-200,000 (very likely)
Jermaine Easter £200,000-250,000 (depending upon incoming strikers)
Darren Ambrose £500,000-1 million (unlikely, but Leeds United and Warnock may well be interested)
Owen Garvan £300,000 (likely)(4)(41)You missed out messiDumbuya is a winger/full back mateI'm sorry but I am a Palace supporter and half of these is pure lies. I doubt Kerim Frei will be loaned out by Fulham as he is playing, Nick Powell is worth well more than 750k, try 4-5m plus Hovland just moved clubs, No way would we get 100k for Dorman, Ambrose is worth more than a bit more than 1 million and also likes the area and finally Garvan is a free agent in the summer I believe. Try harder next time.Mccleary is going to prem, I'll drive chambers there for free.I think you live in dream land with some of those - Simeon Jackson on a free, my word keep taking your pills, Chris Martin - got to be worth 1.5m.Connolly is out of contract at the end of the yearCrainie is out of contract in the summer so can go for nothingI'll have a pint of what you've been drinking lolDumbuya is in contract talks with Doncaster roversWaste of time reading this rubbish!

Stopped when I read Clayton and Powell from Crewe and McCleary from the trees!

Why would any of them go to Palace?

Dream onWow, deluded!


16 Apr 2012 16:34:50
If Coventry get relagated Bristol City, Portsmouth, Blackpool and Southampton will aim 2 buy Gary McSheffrey( for 5million or over).(2)(64) 

Not a chance portsmouth would be able to pay 5million.No one will pay anything neer 5 mil for him more like 200,000 at mostChris Martin will not be sold for 500K, at least 750K, more likely close to 1M.
Norwich have a one year option on Simeon Jackson from July 2012 so there is no way you will get him on a free transfer, Lambert will Exercise the one year option even if he decides to sell him on, so expect to pay at least 750K assuming Lambert does not want him in Norwich squad for next season.Haha guys commented on wrong pos^^^5 mil for mcsheffrey, your having a laughIt quite clearly is a joke, good job you didn't bite. McSheffrey is not worth 500k. {Ed003's Note - lol }


16 Apr 2012 16:31:23
Portsmouth to sign akinfenwa if Luke Varney goes to Nottingham forest in the summer(7)(28)How the mighty have fallen.Akinfenwa is beeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast !!He is about right for park football!Pompey might not even exist in the summer, the thought of them signing anyone is just pure fantasyI absolutely love Akinfenwa! He is a tank! Could play in the Championship in my opinion!The only thing Poopey likely to sign will be a winding up order.


16 Apr 2012 16:18:53
Sunderland will sign winger Aiden Mcgeady and Kenwyn Jones will be resigned next season....Blackcat(15)(34)Heard this also mcgeady used to be an O'neill player & likes the manager,talks are already at an advanced stage,Kenwyn never wanted to leave Sunderland,and O'neill is a fan & tried to sign him when he was manager at VillaShame that with the poor crowds and the money wasted on the players they have now, NO CASH. Free transfers and league 1/2 players only. SMBMc Geady is far too good.smbAm Irish and seriously wish McGeady wasn't in our squad. He really is one trick pony and not a good trick at that.

Jones looks certain to leave Stoke as hardly gets a look in these days. Were rumours of a couple of Sunderland players interesting the Potters including Gardner . The two clubs do have good relations on the transfer front.Believable but i would have said more mcgeady and fletcher of wolves........jones is too injury prone (on his day immense, and has the power o'neill likes, but i would say fletcher is more likely


16 Apr 2012 16:16:59
Man United full back Fabio will sign for Sunderland next season on a season loan.....Blackcat(14)(28)Fergie wants Fabio to have most 1st team playing team and Fergiethinks Sunderland is ideal,having already had players such as Welbeck & Jonny Evans on load.O'neill is very keen to bring him to the SOLAs a united fan i would be very happy to see sessegnon going the other way....looks like a real talentIs that after he signs for villa zzzWell you can keep your hands off sess, the lad is going no where. sess and mon have said this.

don't rate fabio much, and don't want him at safcFabio is no great loss.. send him to any one who wants him.. MUFC..Hes going to benfeca


16 Apr 2012 16:06:01
Real madrid have tied links with Ac Milan youngster stephen el shaaraway estimate price of over 15 million(7)(17)


16 Apr 2012 15:30:00
Jacob Butterfield will leave Barnsley for Stoke with Michael Tonge going the other way on a permanent deal. Barnsley are also interested in Arismendi from the Potters.(24)(11)Barnsley will not pay wages of either of them & what good is a player who,s played less than half the games he,s been available for ? while on loanWhy would Tonge drop down 2 divisionsTonge is at Barnsley on loan and will be mutually released by Stoke in the Summer along with Tom Soares and a couple more. Sheff Utd have shown an interest in Tonge as have Burnley.Cant see it. tonge will end up back at the blunts if they go up.arismendi i guess would be an improvement in doyle if we could rid ourselves of him.Butterfield, will have a few options open to him but will he want to warm a premiership bench all season and do a adam hammill ?


16 Apr 2012 15:23:53
Rotherham set to sign Kyle McFadzean from Crawley following interest from Doncaster Rovers FC and Peterborough United FC(12)(15)


16 Apr 2012 15:22:14
Doncaster desperate to sign strikers Shaun Miller from Crewe and Izale McLeod from Barnet. Also defenders Kyle McFadzean from Crawley and Troy Archibald-Henville from Exeter as they all look to be improving Dean Saunders and his scouts!(15)(7)


16 Apr 2012 15:07:09
Bit of a strange one this morning

Man Utd are reportedly interested in Stoke City youngster Ryan O'Reilly. It wouldn't be the first time that Man U have taken youth from the Potters of course with Ritchie De Laet and Ben Foster heading to OT in recent years.
Park and a loan player have been linked with the Potters who had an ambitious bid for Michael Carrick on loan rejected last August.
Man Utd also have a clause in Ryan Shawcross' contract of course should he move on.(9)(6)


16 Apr 2012 14:35:23
ivan ramis will move to wigan in the summer along with grant leadbitter, lacina traore and somen tchoyi.(4)(8)


16 Apr 2012 14:30:33
if wigan stay in the prem this season they will attempt to sign lacina traore, somen tchoyi, grant leadbitter and and cristian rodriguez and a centre back.(7)(12)Hope its true, Lacina Traore is apparently 6'8''. Scare the life out of some defenders.Lacina traore will go to swansea (probably) or maybe arsenal (unlikely)I've seen Lacina on youtube and he looks a beast. I've also heard that your interested in Mikel Gonzalez of Real Sociedad, Ivan Klasnic of Bolton and Ki Sung-Yueng of Celtic.
P.S. Hope Wigan stay in the prem, good, honest side, better than most clubs. Good luck tonight against Arsenal!After last nights result it is looking like Wigan will survive. Well Done .... er so far!


16 Apr 2012 14:23:25

Shaun Brisley (£300k) - DEF

16 Apr 2012 14:01:12
I have it on good authority that Watford are looking at signing Dundee (as opposed to Dundee United) winger Ryan Conroy in the Summer.(11)(5)Hes a great player really dont want to see another one leave.. dont see this one


16 Apr 2012 13:54:24
Huddersfield keeper Alex Smithies is to sign for Bolton gathers pace. Joe Lewis from Peterborough to replace him between the sticks. Cody McDonald is looking a certainty to come in to replace Reading bound Jordan Rhodes. Also possible new signings are believed to include Patrick Kisnorbo from Leeds Utd and Gai Assulin from Manchester City. Strong rumour is that Giles Barnes may be on his way to Huddersfield after Doncaster have finally been relegated. We wait and hope early signings of any of these players can be confirmed shortly.(11)(9)Kisnorbo may well retire through injury, shame because before his first injury when Leeds were in league one, he was quality.Rhodes to reading ?, get in line with about 5 established prem clubs also stating their interest.MacDonald will stay at Cov.


16 Apr 2012 13:32:06
Ipswich have got their sights on a number of different targets this summer, which include the following:
Gk- Brad Guzan (Aston Villa), Scott Loach (Watford), Joe Lewis (Peterborough), Alex Smithies (Huddersfield)
Rb- Lowton (Sheffield United), Joel Ward (Porstmouth), Adam Smith (Tottenham), Jack Hunt (Huddersfield)
Cb- Titus Bramble (Sunderland), Harry Maguire (Sheffield United), Richard Stearman (Wolves), Jason Pearce (Portsmouth)
Cm- Paul Coutts (Preston), Anthony Wordsworth (Colchester), Kane Ferdinand (Southend), David Norris (Portsmouth)
Lw- Matt Ritchie (Swindon), George Boyd (Peterborough)
St- Paul Taylor (Peterborough), Daryl Murphy (Celtic), Jordan Rhodes (Huddersfield)

Ipswich will not sign all of these but are looking to make around 7 or 8 signings.(9)(36)I cant see Rhodes or Norris coming back here, and Titus will have to behave, too many wrong doings in the meadia, i can see a few on here who PJ would be interested in Like Richie, Guzan, Lowton, Smithies, Pearce, Smith, but we will see come early summer.Is the same Ipswich who are over 60m in debt and spend 98.8% of turnover on wages and salaries. The impending finance rules mean that all clubs in the Championship will need to start reducing squads and costsYou can have Richard Stearman for me, not close to Premier quality but will do a job in the Championship.What total load of pants, why do people write so much CRAP!!. Dream onWhy would stearman move when he is a great championship defender and a local lad. he will stay with wolves.I'm a town fan and these are just players we have been linked with by the media or scouted over the season rather than concrete transfer rumours. All clubs need to reduce wages in line with turnover altough these rulings won't be as strictly inforced immediately.To The second re plyer above, is obviously a scum from up the road, Now, Ipswich are looking to build on the above 60million debt, in the summer Marcus Evans is allowing another 40 Million to be spent on players to get Ipswich into the Premiership, like Man U Liverpool and others that are well in debt to around 300 million.

So what ive written above is a load of bcks, as is the scum supporters comments about our Debt

Leeds to sign derby midfielder paul green on a free transfer(19)(15)


16 Apr 2012 12:57:20
hearts signing lee wallace(5)(11)


16 Apr 2012 12:55:57
Alex McLeish will walk away from the Villa job this week. It is understood to be by the termination of the contract!(12)(24)Oh not more of this rubbishI wish this was true the worst manager ever to have gone to the Villa and that list is not short.Walk away and give up his contract rights! yeah ok.You get what you pay for, He was a defender in his day, and his teams play ultra tight & defensive, always trying to avoid defeat, which results in all his teams playing negative football, evidence is all the drawn games this season, and Villa just hovering above relegation zone.
His glass is always half full, there is no way with the players Villa have that they should be struggling...And yet we can't defend.....the mind boggles


16 Apr 2012 12:55:28
Ben parker and mika vayrynen have been released by leeds united? Mot(20)(2)


16 Apr 2012 12:25:52
Tottenham - see Tim Krul as a replacement for the ageing friedel, expect a 10 million

Sunderland - interested in sigurdsson, mcgeady and fletcher

West Brom - want robert snodgrass and jordan rhodes(20)(23)10 mil LOL One of the best keepers in the prem and his age too? More like 20 mil and then maybe...That will buy his gloves another 15 migth buy him20m whats this guy smoking(1st reply) he wont be leaving anyway but defo not at 20m, and am sure w brom do want snodgrass and rhodes, so do alot of teams doesnt me there gunna get 'em!
Huddsfield want xavi,scholesy, iniesta and messi, UTTMorons, he wouldn't even be worth 10m, no wonder Newcastle are doing so well if people pay over the odds for their players...If krul goes it will be to a big club not a 1 season wonder club.Not worth 10 mil? Sounds like a SMB to me... Swansea and Newcastle's keepers are the best 2 young keeprs in the league. So yeah, at least 20 mil for him to be sold. Tiote, 30 mil, Cabaye, 1st season, 15 -20 mil. HBA - 20 mil etc etc Newcastle are joint 4th on merrit not becasue their palyers are over rated.Deluded geordie, your players might be worth that on football manager not in real life dummy.Players are worth whatever clubs are willing to offer as for Krul he wouldn't leave for anything less than 15m obviously sunderland fan making up this rumour


16 Apr 2012 12:13:39
Latest sad but heard from East Midlands.
Cotrill leaving Forrest to become New Boss at STFC.Dicanio is off to West Ham.
Comes as a shock or does it???
Rumours have been on the cards since xmas and Big Sam to retire due to Health problems.
If true Dicannio will be missed however whoever comes in will have a hard job on there hands(6)(27)Why would sc leave forest, to go and join swindon??If I was a Forest fan I would be praying that was true. Never known a manager big himself up so much and achieve so little as SC. Even talked of himself as a future England manager onceTwo points on this which i think is rubbish- firstly Di Canio is still not expericenced enough yet i think he will do another season with us and West Ham could still go up yet.

Big Sam is a personal friend of David Gold the chairman at West Ham and i cant see him leaving the club after one season.
I dont like big Sams style of football as its hoofball but lets face it West Ham fans and Spurs fans are the biggest moaners of all the leagues and when things dont go their way all you hear is West Ham fans moaning.

Before the season kicked off West Ham fans were all shouting they would win the league easily -well now they know it isnt easy. Istill think they will get automatic as i have a feeling Southampton will blow the last couple of games.


16 Apr 2012 10:56:31
David Norris is set to leave Portsmouth in the summer and return to Ipswich Town due to the almost certain relegation of Portsmouth from the championship!(25)(10)We would not have him back after he only left for money in the first place serves him right for being greedy.He'll go to Posh, nearer his home links, Not Ipswich Fact


16 Apr 2012 10:51:04
Southampton want Blackburn defender Scott Dann.

Source: The Sun...

I'm a southampton fan, one of the few not assuming we are up! Hoping for the best though, and apologies for some muppets on here already referring to us as a "premiership club".(21)(8)Im also a Southampton fan who is not assuming we are up! But Scott Dann is absolute ste, much rather Richard Stearman of WolvesMost Southampton fans are not assuming we are up, just a few juvenile muppets on here. Wether we go up or not, unfortunately, the wannabe footie managers will again be linking us with hundreds of players, 99.9% of which will be bs.Dann is ten times the player Stearman is.


16 Apr 2012 08:55:54
Nigel Clough is willing to give Chris Maguire a chance next season when he returns from loan at Portsmouth. This means that Clough will allow Callum Ball to go out on loan to a lower championship side. Nathan Tyson has also attracted interest from newly promoted side Charlton Athletic, with 700k the asking price for the striker who can also play as a winger.(14)(5)Tyson can also play as a winger? He can't stay fit never mind play.Nathan Tyson to Charlton! I dont think so mate, we need good players.


16 Apr 2012 08:12:57
Why would a wolves player want to go to southampton when they will be favourite to come back down ? oh and thats if they do go up , i can see west ham nicking 2nd place at the death.(20)(12)Because Saints will have the chance to stay there. Wolves are going down, and are not returning for a while. Havent got the money to do so, and havent got the board to do so. Club in turmoil."Why would a wolves player want to go to southampton when they will be favourite to come back down ?"
So that they could play in the Premier LeagueBecause footballers want to play in the Premier League even if its only for a relegation battle. If Southampton do go down again, such players will simply look for another move to the next promoted team.
And as a Wolves fan, I would warn clubs about the "cherry-picking-from-relegated-teams" strategy. Its not worked too well for us, has it?The club has more than enough money , ranked 4th in the premier league in accordance with UEFA finance policy regarding monies in/out.Of the three clubs to go down Wolves do not have to sell players to survive financially Wolves are in the black not the red unlike a lot of clubs."Why would a wolves player want to go to Southampton when they will be favourite to come back down" So he wont be relegated to league1 next season!

Let’s face it Wolves had their chance in the big league and lost it when they sacked McCarthy and to compound it would not give a new manager a contract beyond the end of the season.

Many financial woes are ahead, budgets will be cut and players sold. The vultures are already circling over head, doom, its all doom I tell ya!I think you are all missing the point. If Saints are promoted then the players will be on Premiership wages.
I think you will find that most relegated sides are having to rebuild and even with a parachute payment will not pay the same sort of money.
Simples!Maybe for the same reason that Fletcher left Burnley for Wolves...........Premier league football. Will be real tough for Soton if they come up and will need to spend big. Fletcher is a realistic target who can score goals.Why are Southampton favourites to go down? Thought we'd all realised that it isn't the newly promoted clubs that are always likely to go down - they usually have a solid base from a strong championship campaign and then plenty of money to invest in players. Most likely to go down are those teams languishing in the lower-end of the prem and not willing to invest.

Look at Norwich and Swansea. Saints may go down but to dub them favourites instantly is unfounded now-a-days. Those poor, scrappy clubs who just stay up will be as likely to go down, if not more.Wet Sham have not got the bottle to nick it, there'll be 6 London Clubs in the Championship next season!Agree with your sentiment but we are not favourites to go down, yet 'cos we haven't gone up, yet!


16 Apr 2012 08:09:22
Ipswich are said to be interested in Swindon winger Matt Ritchie, but Swindon manager Paulo Di Cannio insists he's not for sale.

Ipswich are also understood to be in the hunt for Peterborough pair George Boyd, Paul Taylor.

Scott Loach could also be on Paul Jewell's radar if Watford can come to an agreement where Kuzsack signs permanently from Manchester United.(20)(5)Ipswich have no money when will there fans realise they are being bailed out by there rich owner who will only go so far!I assume poster one is a budgie. Hate to break it to you but how many clubs actually are not in debt / have an owner chairman who bank rolls them?So seems like Ipswich are looking to buy all these players with Monoply money so when are you Ipswich fans going to wake up from your dream and realise you wont be signing Matt Ritchie for a start as you couldnt affford him and if he did go it would only be the fee our club want for him. There is a plan at STFC to progress up the leagues and Ritchie is a key player and enjoys playing under Paolo as he can see his ambition and where he can take the club. Ipswich under Jewell blow hot and cold and cant see next season being any different.Di Canio wont be at Swindon next season, expect him to be championship manager

{Ed022's note - brand new player profile on Edinson Cavani. In my opinion, this will be the transfer saga of the summer and the talk of all media outlets. - Also, for you that don't know, we Eds have been running a new player profile website which is based on profiling the players linked with clubs from all over Europe. The description is on the homepage if you all want to check it out. Thanks all.}(2)(7)Ed, biggest transfer saga of the summer will come down to hazard, balotelli or jordan rhodes at huddersfield. only 10 clubs could probably afford. shame on you ed, if it is really you that is

They're an established prem club now so why not?That would be a good move for all concerned, I've admired the player for a while he's one that could play at a higher level. Leeds are not flush with cash and could do with some rebuilding under new manager Whiner Warnock.Bit bored of people saying Leeds are strapped for cash? Last time I checked our club made money in the financial year unlike most 92 clubs in the football league. We not poor, captain Birdseye is just tight!Its not a case of "we are only Leeds"...the fact is simple, Snodgrass is qulaity and will go to play for a club which is better than West brom.I never said they were strapped for cash I said they are not flush, there is a difference and it is true!Snodgrass is gonna signa new contract near the end of his current one soo all you scum teams can kepp off just cause where the only team that can produce TALENT unlike ther teams

He wont be going to Championship Wigan though!He'd be better taking a loan in the prem like villa, not a team in the championshipWhy would he be better going to Villa than Wigan? Two similar clubs just keeping their heads above water in the relegation battle. In fact SAF is more likely to let him go to Wigan after Tom Cleverley had a good spell there but rumours are that he'll join Stoke City in a deal taking another player there believed to be ParkWigan will still be premier league for the forseeable future so Fabio would be joining a premier league club.

Reading have signed a pre-agreement for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes. This move is apparently dependant on Hudds not getting promoted.

No idea of the fee as Reading like to keep things close to their chest but Nicky Hammond has been working on this move for some months.

Reading centre back Sean Morrison has had a very successful second loan at Huddersfield and will go in the other direction as part of the deal.(14)(14)RubbishWas waiting for a post saying that, every time Rhodes is linked with anyone there someone saying its rubbish, do Huddersfield fans really have there head so far up where the sun dont shine?CAFC fan- I dont think he is ready for a move, he would be best off staying put for two more seasons.Normal thinking TOWN fans know we cant keep hold of JORDAN forever..! but all this "signed a pre-agreement" stuff is RUBBISH, even if reading get to the PREMIERSHIP, as other deals are on offer from BIGGER clubs. AGIm a hudds fan and i think this MIGHT happen IF town dont go up, also rate morrison would like to see him at town full time? but defo no pre contract agreement been done! JR doesnt operate like that and its not asif hes in a rush to find a team isit?
congrats on promotion aswell!Total rubbish - Why would Huddersfield agree to pre-contract deal for Rhodes, there are at least 4 Prem clubs who have indicated their interest and there will likely be an auction on fee.

REAL FOOTBALLERS DO NOT GO TO STOKE CITY.At least 5 new players plus who ever he's looking at in spain. sounds like a load of bcks to me.Bringing in 4 new wingers, plus the 2 they already have plus jerome and walters who have been playing there, brings stoke to have 8 wide men, seem unlikely, and also is unlikely they will let 2 CB's leave without bringing in any cover.Who is niko transfer?Only shawcross left at centre back sorting times at Stoke. According to this.Why bother posting replies from these morons who say...........Stoke won't sign him he's a footballer etc. No co-incidence that most can't spell or punctuateTo rightRory Delap coaching role! WTF! The only thing he'd teach is how to throw a long ball

looks grim for Argyle as Confernce Football is almost upon them,Fletcher will go and Byrne is being primed for Manager in the Blue Star so so sad(1)(20)They only need a win to stay up 3 games to goThey play Oxford on Saturday and I hope we can get 3 points - we need them. But Plymouth are to good to go down and would not want them out of the league. So good luck to all at ArgylObviously a Exeter fan just can't bear the thought of been relegated unlucky haha see you next season COYGI,ll give u 100/1 all welcome more chance WOLVES Staying UP THAN ARGYLE downArgyle could theoretically go down but is it likely? No

Leeds United
IN- Theo Robinson - Derby
Beckford - Leicster
Jack Bullman - Oxford
Matt Mills - Leicster
O'Dea - Celtic
Out - Paul Connoly
Zac Thompson
Danny Pugh(11)(23)You really think ur gonna get Mills? he could of joined you on loan in Jan and didnt want to which says it all. Also leicester want theo robinson and seeing as they have a lot more money and a better team i think you will find you wont get him so keep dreaming!

LeicesterLadAll that Money? yes better team? Possible how come you've only got 2 more points than us?Hope not, dont think that team if added to the first team would gain us promotionIts still 2 point! Leeds are carp they have 2 good players! If you seriously think that your better of even as good then you well deluded

LeicesterLadStill 2 points and higher in the table and itl b atleast 5 by the endLeicester are deadful that why we beat them at the king power earlier in the season, plus you spent over 15 million last summer and we've spent 100k, Leeds and Pround! MOT"leicester are deadfull" & "leeds and pround" LMAO great spelling there m8! We have underperfomed this year and were still better than you..FACT! you have only just won your first home game under warnock, thats shocking! Besides we have done the double over southampton this year done that make them "deadfull"? i think not! Numpty

LeicesterLadLeicesterLad, calm down! I'm sure your team are great! It is a rumour website, watch the blood pressure!Well done m8! I know its a rumour website! But theres a difference between posting genuine rumours and complete tosh after 10 pints down the pub! Too many ppl on ere make stuff up that has absolutely no truth behind it

LeicesterLadTHEO ROBINSON & JERMAINE BECKFORD up front for LEEDS next season.? Both need about 20 shots at goal to score ONCE. I really hope this happens. AGLeicesterLad,

you have just abused someone else for making spelling mistakes, then you state "Southampton this year done that make them".... FAIL? Furthermore we do not know who will have a better team until next year as Leeds United are in the middle of a squad overhaul with a turnover of around 9 players in and out of the club. Moreover, we have been down to ten men for 5 out of the last 6 games and playing reserve players so NW can have a look at them in the process. With all of that you are only 2 points ahead after spending 15 million? You have shown that money can't buy promotion and I don't think you will be anywhere near promotion next season either.

wolves have agreed to sell

jarvis to villa for 9m

fletcher to sunderland for 12m

doyle to reading for 6m

Hennessy to spurs for 8m

Jacob Butterfield and Jordan Rhodes are top of their list to replace the players going out. {Ed025's Note - thats a lot of money for some average players..(5)(32)Dont forget stephen hunt to barcelona for 43 millionI take it these figure are in Rupees?Someone,s bin on the brobat by sound of this post.I doubt reading will pay more for doyle than they sold him for, he's hardly improved since he went to wolves.10 Million Tops for the lot and that's being generous, and beside Villa might go down yet, with that plank of a manger they haveFletcher would score for anyone with good service,will be sad to see him goDoes Jarvis just love being relegated or something..?Wolves will be offloading that is for sure especially some of the bigger earners, everyone knows they will have to sell so I can't see them getting top dollar for anyone.I know someone at Wolves who passed on the following

Hennessey is interesting Arsenal and has been for some time but no bid
Jarvis will almost certainly join Stoke
Lots of interest in Fletcher and Doyle but nothing concrete so no done deals and price tags etcWhere did villa get 9m fromVilla aren't going down! Jesus Christ, lay off McLeish a bit, after all if you consider all the injuries we've had and the lack of spending which has been offered to him. He's made a profit of 20m since he's been here and due to the injuries we've had we were forced to play 7 players who have come through ranks at Villa out of the starting 11Calm down Villa it might not happen!Can't confirm but I was told that Arsenal are serious about Hennessey, apparently Wenger is a fan and some sort of deal was struck when Frimpong joined on loan although this may be something like a first refusal. Jarvis is Stoke bound for 6.5m and the most we will get for Doyle is 5m and even that is unlikely, Fletcher is a realistic sale but think it will be more like 9m or 10m than 12mFletcher 3.5 if that 12 is a joke F.T.M.


15 Apr 2012 12:33:38
millwall will sign josh wright on 2 year deal and offer maik taylor a 6 month contract within next week or two. also jackett will ask spurs for harry kane on loan again and his other target which will he will have to fight off competition for is paul taylor from peterborough £1m bid expected before july(4)(6)I think he is out of contract soon so Millwall may get him for less but, I can see competition for his signature!

Trever Birch has stated on the pompey news fratton latest that there are two buyers interested in the club i'm a pompey fan so pay up pompey(5)(6)There's no latest news on any buyers actually. In fact there is talk that Fratton Park is about to be sold so the owner of the ground can recoup some of the dent owed to him! Possible groundshare linked to Bournemouth, but it's only a soundbite.

Relegation to League 1 will mean even less income coming into the club and that has put added doubt on another CVA being agreed.If they do find a new buyer then they must!!! not be allowed to keep overspending like they have done or they will be in admin before then end of next season again feel for the fans but they cant be allowed to keep doing this think of all the small businesses that they keep sending under

Southend are in talks with Gillingham defender Danny Jackman, Shrewsbury winger Lionel Ainsworth and Northampton midfielder John Johnson about moves to Roots Hall in the summer.(3)(7)Can't see the Shrews player signing on if Southend don't go up. If Southend don't go up they'll be more exits than newcomers. They've put more in to getting promoted this year than at any time in their history.I don't where you get your facts from because no way is this the most Southend have put into a team as they spent hundreds of thousands of pounds on players when they got promoted to the Championship and they have only spent 'nominal' fees on a couple of players!The point Southend couldn't hack it in the 2nd tier was precisely because there was no investment put in to add to the League 1 title winning squad.

Reading have also been scouting Adam Hammill from Wolves as a possible addition.(24)(7)I doubt an established prem player would come to us to be coverI think they would as they're both past their best.Adam Hammill is past his best? hes only like 23 i thought? {Ed025's Note - he,s 24..Upson would be cover - Hammill would be more rotation between McAnuff and Kebe.Please please please take Adam Hammill off us, he's absolutely USELESS.

WE ARE THE POTTERS THE RICK RORY POTTERS STAYING IN THE PREM WITH OUR NEW PLAYERS!!(13)(14)If you've got your sources then who has he gone over to Spain to look at?He's gone over to watch Roque Santa Cruz about an enquirey into signing him from Manchester for next season if you must know!! HAPPY NOW!!Park will never go to Stoke as he is a footballer not a thug.Like you have a clue where Park will go

Better a thug than a diving cheatWhy would any of these "footballers" want to join Stoke when Stoke play 90% of the game in the air? They should be looking at basketball playersStoke play 90% in the air do they thats why 5 or more teams r higher in the long ball game than us fact


14 Apr 2012 22:33:47
Now charlton have secured promotion to the championship Chris Powell is now starting to locate targets and some have already been publicly stated such as ;
Francois zoko from Carlisle even though I don't no why
Also Jamie vardy is on their list but will have to pay an extreme price for the player coming against the likes of Blackpool for him.
Aswell as seabourne from Southampton.
Kyle lafferty from rangers.
Matt mills from Leicester because he has become out of favour with Nigel Pearson.
Lastly hogan ephraim and Paul coutts from preston(7)(9)Matt mills yeah dream on mateNo way u will get coutts'mllls going no wherePreston are in deep financial trouble and will settle for around 300k for Coutts which is what we WILL offer, we were after him in the summer but we went with Stephens instead, THIS IS A FACT WE WILL SIGN COUTTS!You wont get coutts he is buying into the Westley way and enjoying life in prestonRe Coutts - Is that because Westley is such a top manager or that PNE are such a massive club? Get real fella he'll want to move on given the chance!

As a Leeds fan I know how you feel right now and wish you good luck getting back in this league.
At least your club's still alive.Charlton Fan - Survival is the key, keep the faith and one day you’ll be back, hopefully soon.They will leave along with quite a few others but as long as the club survives and keeps it's promising youngsters who are currently on the edge of the first team, Pompey will be OK in Div 1 and will return to the Championship in a yer ot two.

Al Habsi won't leave north west
Upson is past it
Rodriguez going to a bigger club than southamptonLot of money to spend for a side in the championshipSo let me get this correct wolves with no debt are going to sell jarvis who has played for england in the last 12 months for 5,000,000. When there are plenty interested.Rodriguez for more than jarvis, prem proven, come on! plus i think wigan might stay up so why would al-hasbi move, mignolet dream on mate!!I wouldn't be that pleased with any of those signings, apart from Matt Jarvis. 5m would be a good price, his form since his England call up hasn't been great. I agree with the other post, I'd prefer Phillips from Blackpool over Ince. I'm not sure whi Saints are being linked with goalkeepers though? Davis has a good few years left in him yet and Bialkowski is a decent young cover. Saints will need a CB or 2 (not Upson) and some solid wide support for Lallana. 1 more striker would help too.
Let's be honest, we need to win our last 3 games and get into the Premier league before we start creating our imaginary shoping lists anyway!
Big result needed tomorrow night, and if Bristol City can win too, that would make my day! Pompy down and West Ham 6 points adrift!

He has already stated (Repeatedly) that he wants to stay with Swindon providing they are promoted this season....Please please sack clueless pearson the judas ponyo why why did they have him back the quicker they do this the better season over now so get ridWhat has changing manger achieved for us in the past?

If Newcastle get into Europe their targets will include Wilfried Zaha , Victor Moses, Romain Amalfitano, Douglas, Debuchy and Anthony Knockaert.(12)(27)I think you're probably spot on but Mark Davies is meant to be a target too!Newcastle are in europe but pretty accurate mebbe a striker if ba leaves
