Hi, has anybody got any birmingham city transfer rumours/ news please?

Liverpool scouts have been monitering a number of young players in England. Rave reviews have been sent to Rafa on a number of players most notably Cairney of Hull and McDonald at Middlesboro. Expect bids for these two players in the summer. Jovanovic is to sign as a direct replacement for Riera who will head back to Spain. Babel and Jovanovic will battle for the left midfield spot. This rules out any bid for Mata. Skrtel will be leaving to play in Serie A, club as yet unknown. Two centre backs and a left back will sign. Names in the frame are Kjaer, Otimendi, Upson, Shawcross and Cahill. Also Vargas, Taiwo and Belhaj. Liverpool hope their major signing will be Gonzalo Higuain who is getting a rough time at the moment from the Spaniah press. Madrid are encouraging a swap deal with Gerrard but Rafa is usually loathe to swap deals prefering all to be cash only. Rafa will sell one of Benayoun or Kuyt to raise funds towards the Higuain deal. Now its down to the owners to release the necessary funds for these deals to take place.


17 Mar 2010 18:28:28
Arsene Wenger will only improve were he needs to. Gk CB CF and maybe a CM. Man City will not sell a future England number 1 to any1.Lloris and Akinfeev are the number 1 targets with Diego Lopez a cheaper option.
The 5 CB will be Vermaelen Campbell Savic Djouruo and contract talks are due to open with Gallas on thursday but if he leaves 1 of Cahill/Sahko or Subotic will be brought with AW already showing an interest in all.
Chamakh is a done deal and that will be it unless any1 is sold.
Silvestre Senderos Merida will leave on a free with Fanainski.
Almunia will stay and be the number 2.If a CM is bought it will be Scott Parker with the English rule coming in.

P.S. Why does Liverpool fans want Rafa to buy more players. Look at the Money he has wasted already.He has bought over 60 players and about 5 of them are any good.


17 Mar 2010 15:58:54
Any QPR rumours?
Please Post.


17 Mar 2010 16:00:47
Man utd too only buy 2 players
even though nani is on form he will be sacrificed for the inevitable joe cole, fergie believes joe cole is better n buy selling nani around 12mil n getting joe for free is a gd deal
next is di maria, a bid around 22mil will be accepted amazing player– ability like ronaldo N can beused in united favoured 451 or 433


17 Mar 2010 16:07:30

Rafa is staying. He will be given another year by the club, because G&H are willing to accept that all managers can have one bad season.

BUT.. here is the best bit: Gillett and Hicks have resigned themselves to having to sell up. New Owners will be in place before August, and Rafa will get a deserved transfer kitty of about £50M.

The Yanks Time is up.. Tick Tock!!


17 Mar 2010 15:03:01

Any True Celtic News? Most things here are just pish.


17 Mar 2010 14:02:42
Not one of the big guns will be leaving this summer at Liverpool but the only big summer moves will be rafa and the coaching staff.
Real Madrid if they fail to win the league will
offer rafa a 4 year deal worth £20 mil and that will
leave Liverpool with around 20 million to spend on the summer As they target mata for Riera plus cash and and a new
left back proberly tawio and that's about it.but as a long life
Liverpool fan if things don't change and new faces brought in then I can see another Leeds united happening !!!


17 Mar 2010 13:50:32
Fabregas is leaving the emirates this summer for at least 70 million depending on world cup performance since the 3 italian sides and the 2 spanish sides are all determined to enter a bidding war to get him, all money will be put into improving the squad ins include luis suarez of ajax for 25 million (has expressed desire to join either arsenal or man utd could also include seaso long loan of eduardo to ajax to regain top form), jack rodwell of everton for 20 million (arsene wants to get the one over on fergie since he stole chris smalling from under his nose and everton do not want to lose another future world star to utd), gregory van der wiel of ajax for 15million and mahmadou sakho of psg for 12million, also the free transfer of marouane chamakh has been concluded, i realise that there are no direct replacements for fabregas here but after his absence wenger has seen that samir nasri is more than capaple of filling his role and is much more effective through the middle, also jack wilshere is quickly gaining confidence at bolton, also diaby has greatly improved this season and denilson and ramsey(when he comes back) are more than capable of providing good competition, so as you can see arsenal have plenty of attacking midfield options, other outs include silvestre and senderos here is what next years squad should look like:
GK almunia fabianski manonne
LB clichy gibbs traore
CD vermaelen gallas sakho campbell djourou nordtveit (van der wiel) (rodwell)
RB sagna van der wiel (eboue)
DM song rodwell (wenger unlike fergie sees rodwell as an excellent combative midfielder rather than centre half)
AM nasri diaby denilson ramsey merida wilshere
W arshavin suarez rosicky walcott eboue watt (vela)
ST van persie chamakh bendtner vela (suarez)
As you can see it is a squad with enough strength and depth to challenge for any title but also young with massive potential

Glasgow Rangers

Ibrox bid not a done deal.

Rangers have rejected claims that a takeover is imminent, as they have yet to be convinced potential purchaser Andrew Ellis meets their requirements for agreeing to a sale– PAPER TALK.




17 Mar 2010 13:04:37

17 Mar 2010 02:26:15
Heard from a accountant mate at RBOS that liverpools debt will spiral out of control if the money from the CL isn't there come may. apparently the americans have arranged it so they are not peronally liable for the debts as its in a company called kop holdings that means they may try threaten liquidisation in order to get out of paying the 400 million debt owed by kop holdings. this will mean administation unless a investor is willing to buy out the club for 500m wich is very unlikley therefore a probable outcome is a fans takeover much like what united fans are trying to do.


17 Mar 2010 03:27:06
LFC Rumours..
Arda Turan and Simon Kjaer both looking certs after publicly declaring their prefered destinations this summer.
Gonzalo Higuain is to be used as the scapegoat for Real Madrid's abysmal display yet again in the CL, expect him to be at Anfield this summer along with fellow compatriot Fernando Gago.
One of either Gareth Bale, Taye Taiwo & Nadir Belhadj will also be signed and occupy the left fullback position with Emiliano Insua still not cutting the mustard.
Kenwyne Jones, Aaron Lennon, Theo Walcott, James Milner, Stephen Ireland, Gary Cahill & Micah Richards are all being monitered also.


17 Mar 2010 05:45:29
