Sunderland Summer (INís)


Sunderland Summer (OUTís)

  Liverpool are chasing a winger and a striker.

Striker will be one of: Aguero, Tevez or Villa.
Winger will be Navez from Sevilla

These are Rafas top two priorities.
However, depending on transfer departures, he may look at signing a right back and a central midfielder.
  Cesc fabregas gonna leave arsenal in summer coz they arent as successful as he thought they wud be, and go to barca to replace xavi, who is going to man utd. fegie rates him very highly. hargraeves and nani to leave in the summer. if tevez goes to madrid, man utd to go for benzema
  Firstly i like to plead with all the villa fans to stop dreaming, getting above their station thinkings their a top 4 team, your not. you just having a good season.

Liverpool will sign:
1 of each
STK David Villa, Sergio Kun Aguero, Henry(cheap)
GK Yohann Pelť,
LB Glen Johnson
RW Jesus Navas.

Reina(sadly due to family reasons) Degan, Voronin, Babel, Dossena, lucas and Cavelieri,Benayoun

  Newcastle united

Behind closed doors there is a lot of unrest on tyneside, i have been informed by a high places source that the following will happen:

–The club is still up for sale, but the public must not know about it, when mike ashley went to training the other day when it snowed he announced it to first team players.

– Bassong is out of contract in the summer.

– Steve Bruce will become manager once the sale of the club goes through.

– Owen isn't intrested in the club and has agreed to join man city.

in the know!
  Jose Mourinho will not become Chelsea manager in the summer. He will go one more season after this one with Inter, then once he has won Serie A 2 seasons in a row at Inter (as he did the premier league with Chelsea), he will go and manage in Spain, probarbly at Real Madrid. He will win La Liga, and then return to Chelsea. Mourinho has made it clear that he wants to win the Premier League, La Liga and Serie A before the end of his managerial career, and being as he is soon to win Serie A and has already won the Premier league twice, Spain would seem his likely destination when he is finished with Inter. He will then return to the Bridge and end his career with Chelsea. With Carlo Ancelotti having snubbed Chelsea, expect Chelsea to look to Rijkaard and Mancini in the summer to fill the permenant managers role.

In Arsene We Trust

i am the guy who said liverpool already signed six player who all will be revealed in the transfer window and i just found out about veloso. .it was supposed to happen in jan but lisbon asked 2 keep him till the the summer because they could not find a replacement in so short a time.

%100. mate put his life on it
  Heard from a close contact at Everton (very high up!) that Moyes will be off at the end of the season as he will be joining ManU for SAF last season in charge. Sorry Bluenoses but he's going!
  Terrance Brown is buying back West Ham United.

Expect the deal to become public knowledge shortly.
  Glad to see the rumours about boruc aren't true

Anyway, after seeing a dire old firm game, celtic are looking to replace gordon strachan with david moyes / roy keane. moyes will bring tim cahill and rodwell with him. keanes first signing would be damien duff

Watch this space

Well played boruc on old firm day.
  I'm the guy that said i must of imagined all that TV money and i dunno what you lot are complaining about cos the English leagues get gifted more money than any other league in the world. If your clubs are spending £5million on players they can't afford, that is just bad management i'm afraid. We don't have no 'umbrella–payments' in Scotland like you overprivilaged whiners do, so to hear you all complain about how little cash you have when you get gifted millions each season makes me sick. The stupid money in your league is pricing every other country out of the transfer market – perhaps a salary cap is the answer? But what you must realise is that media cash is vital to the running of a football club and to hark back to a time when money wasn't important, would be pre–WW2. Unless you are talking about jumpers–for–goalposts in the EPL, i would suggest you undertake a course in business studies. Television money & sponsorship funds football as much as gate receipts do and to deny this is DELLUDED AND SERIOUSLY DERRANGED. Yeah, sorry about the Boruc story everyone – must of been some kind of legal injunction there, unless half of Glasgow were lying to me (again).
  Sunderland summer transfer targets;

Glen Johnson – Portstmouth
Stewart Downing – Middlesbrough
Darren Bent – Tottenham
Micah Richards – Manchester City
Tom Huddlestone – Tottenham
  Sadly Pepe Reina will be leaving Liverpool for Athletico Madrid but its not all that bad for Liverpool because Sergio Aguero will be part of that deal Reina + 8m then Rafa will concentrate on bringing a goalie he is after Joe Hart of Man City if he can't get him expect a shock deal for Brad Jones of Middlesborgh they will be the only incomings at Liverpool however a mass of players will be leaving Degan will join West Ham , Pennant will join Real Betis for free , Benayoun and Intange(spelling) will both join Newcastle and Dossena could join Napoli. Very good source
  Liverpool to sign four or five of the following come the summer, depending on how many leave maybe more:
Sergio Aguero – upwards of at least £20m
Glen Johnson – £10m
David Villa – £30m (fee could go up or down depending on Valencias situation and/or Barcelona)
Elano – £12m
Kuba – £7m
Jesus Navas – £10–15m
Carlos Tevez – £30m (If Man Utd decide not to make it permanent)
Aislan – £8m
Diego (of Werder Bremen) – £18m
Ashley Young – £25m
Gareth Barry – £20m
Robinho – £30m (If Mark Hughes is still there and Man City don't improve)
Gareth Bale – £5m
Miralem Pjanic – £15m
Keirrison – £6m
Andres Iniesta – £18m
Fred – Free
David Silva – £25m
Micheal Owen – Free
Rafinha – £12m
Raul Albiol – £15m (Only if Agger ends up leaving)
Giorgio Chiellini – £13m (Again only if Agger leaves or if both Aurelio and Dossena leave)
Bojan Krkic – £15m (If Barcelona get Villa and keep Eto'o)
Thierry Henry – £10m (Again if Barcelona get Villa and keep Eto'o)

The most likely of these seems to be Elano, Aguero, Johnson and Kuba, but depending on what happens in the remainder of the season and if Liverpool are indeed taken over/invested into they may pursue some of their top end targets such as David Villa and Iniesta.
  Heard on the local radio station that Blackburn were keen on Australian youngster Mitch Nichols.
  Everton news

moyes will have at least 18m pound to spend in the transfer window
here are his targets

darren bent 5m
geovanni 2.5m
k richardson 5m
l young 2.5m
  Terry Venables will be the next manager of Portsmouth FC Get to the bookies quick. Dan.
  Frank Foster moving from Arbroath to Raith Rovers for 100,000

Crespo to either Everton or Wigan in the summer, could start as loan deal with possibility of being signed in the Jan window.

Tyneside youngster Lewis Petterson has been attracting a lot of interest from Newcastle after an impressive season so far at Yeovil.

Liverpool looking to sign Napoli youngster Fausto Pelusi, Rafa sees the young Italian as a real prospect for the future, expecting a fee in the region of 600,000
  Rangers skipper Barry Ferguson is to join up with former 'Gers boss Alex McLeish at Birmingham City in the Summer. .the fee has still to be agreed, but it is thought to be in the region of £1.5m.

Should Rangers fail to win the SPL, then Craig Levein currently at Dundee Utd., will take over as Manager, bringing in his own backroom staff, with Walter Smith, Ally McCoist, and Kenny McDowall all moving on
"Iain the Know".
  Liverpool may move to sign Michael Ballack and Fred on frees if they do not get a big budget this summer. It would mean Lucas gets the possibility of being loaned out for the season to another premiership or a la liga side and find regular football. It would mean the same for David N'gog as well – a chance for regular football out on loan, preferably in the premiership.
  Expect new contracts for Adrian Patulea and Lee Beevors at Lincoln, also Moses Swaibu (ex Palace) on trial til end of season.
  Expect the arrival of one Sergio Aguerro at Anfield this summer. Going the other way will be two from Arbeloa, Alonso, Reina, Aurelio and cash. In addition, expect Hyypia to retire to a coaching position and Carragher to move to Hyypia's position on the bench. Milly Insua will be given Left–Back ahead of Aurelio, and either Ramos or Micah Johnson at Right Back with Darby and Carra as cover. The two first choice Central Defenders will be Agger (for his flair and attacking potential) and Skrtel for his solidity and resolute tackling. Look towards the end of this season. Once Liverpool are assured of a top three spot and cannot win the Prem, the changes will start. Gerrard will replace Alonso in a deeper midfield position where he can dictate the play more, and the attacking mid/support striker role will be Aguerro.
  Portsmouth Football Club at a key point in their history. Current owner set to sell to one of two consortiums. One is Middle Eastern based and wants end of season deal, other is European and led by ex Spurs and Celtic player, Ramon Vega. Ramon's group wish to take control before end of March with a variable price based on Premier or Championship next season. If Ramon successful, Sven will be appointed manager. Current owner prepared to secure Sven ahead of March if agreement to sell reached. If Sven appointed, star players including Johnson, Krancjar, James, etc will stay next season, if not all are planned to be sold. The club has covered all debt via sales in last year or so (Muntari, Mendez, Benjani, Defoe, Diarra, etc) so are in better shape than newspapers suggest. Key requirement of RV's consortium is outline permission from the local council to erect a 35,000 capacity stadiium (with option for future expansion to 45,000) at location on edge of city. View of the consortium is that considering the scale of population in the South of England and the lack of other top flight clubs, the potential for growth in crowds is unlike any other.
