16 Mar 2012 21:11:38
Reading will release quite a few fringe players in the summer. Griffin, Harte, Bignall, Howard, Gunnarsson, Tabb, Baseya, Morrison, Williams and a lot of youth players.

Some of these may look to move into coaching - for example Harte/Gunnarsson.

Should Reading get promoted they will clear the above list out, some of the names mentioned will be moving on regardless of promotion or not. Bignall is the biggest waste of space ever, couldn't even play for a league two side.(3)(21)Harte is not a fringe player, playing regularly and having a great seasonHarte is slow and cost us the chance of promotion last year when Swansea destroyed both fullbacks. He is not going to cope next season in the Championship let alone the Premiership.They wil release Griffin, Bignall, Gunnerson and sell or loan out all the other listed apart from Harte"Harte is slow and cost us the chance of promotion last year when Swansea destroyed both fullbacks"

What a load of rubbish, you can't blame one player for us losing that game, you obviously have something against him.

Next time keep your biased opinion to yourself.Yes he has been awesome recently, yes he was one of the players who cost us the playoff final, and yes he was awesome last yearHappy to keep Morrison at Town.Williams has joined Sheffield United on a 2 year deal

Crawley town sign leon clarke(12)(14) 

Didn't he only sign for Charlton in the January window? Played 7 times for them so far.I thought you could only play for three teams in a season. That's Swindon Chesterfield and Charlton. Isn't going to the creepies breaking the rules? {Ed001's Note - emergency loans don't count.}Can't see this one happening.Haha, enjoy him....... Eeeee oooorrrrFrom Chesterfield fan - Great signing for you boys. Look at his record over 3 month loan for us. Speaks for itself.

Apparently Michael Jacobs from Northampton Town 700K, John Joe O'Toole From Colchester United £1m, Ryan Bertrand £1.5m from Chelsea and Soner Aydoğdu the Turkey Under 21 International is Very Interested with the Clubs Current Situation and Is Looking to Come to the Madejski in the summer for 500k the young up coming star is from Gençlerbirliği(3)(11)Would have thought Chelsea would want more than 1.5m for Bertrand, also if we do indeed have a significant cash boost in the summer i cant see Brian still having to drop into league 2 too sign players, Premier league hasbins from now on!1m for JJo'T ? yer man is going to run out of money fast if he carries on wasting it like thatMaking up a rumour is one thing but when you claim to know the fees then you make it very clear it's all BS. Grow up!Michael jacobs is one of the best players to come out of the cobblers since mark bunn and luke chambers...we want to keep him, he's only 20!Reading will loan Bertrand


16 Mar 2012 19:07:00
just a rumour but heard that lee holmes has gone to swindon and matt ritchie coming to the saints in the summer any truth?(18)(12) 

Lee Holmes has gone to Swindon on loan till the end of the season.Ritchie won't go there.Two simple facts that make this rumour rubbish, in respect of Ritchie.
Firstly, Saints do not declare their hand until all negotiations are complete and a player is signed.
Secondly, and more important, why would Saints be looking to secure anyone as a summer signing whilst they have ten games to complete in the Championship which will decide whether they remain there for next season or are promoted to the Premiership? Until that is decided they will not know what type of player they will need.
The only business they are likely to do now is for loan signings to help in this seasons run in or for youth players to add to their developing academy.Ritchie is from Portsmouth and is a Pompey fan .He's from gosport lol and if the opportunity arises to go to southampton i'm pretty sure he would want to goSaints will have already identified targets for the summer. For example Tadanari Lee was a long term target, and they have a list of players that they have been watching. How do I know this - Adkins stated as much in the Tadanari Lee interview when they completed his signing. No idea whether we're intersted in him or not, but to say we don't know what we'll be buying because we don't know what league we'll be in is short sighted. With the management set up Saints have, you can count on one thing. They will have plan A, plan B, and plan C in place no matter what happens.Ritchie is a pompey fan -yes.
also a pompey fan is that exciting young player James Ward- Prowse.
What team you support hardly matters if the best club on the south coast wants your services, and the fact that we will probably be playing premier league football next season is an even bigger attraction.


16 Mar 2012 18:09:38
Wylde is coming down to see Charlton play Scunthorpe tomorrow. No deal done but wants to speak to Chris Powell and Charlton board. Will be seeing other club/s on Sunday.(3)(13)He's not going to see Charlton because he is staying in Bolton tonight after agreeing terms with Owen Coyle.


16 Mar 2012 16:04:52
Aberdeen are set to sign Marvell wynne on loan until the end of the season from Colorado rapids.(4)(6)Transfer window is closed ya tube .......... Clubs with their windows open can trade but it doesnt mean nations with windows closed can trade with other nations with their windows open


16 Mar 2012 15:16:10
Manny Ledesma has signed for Walsall. The 23 year old has signed a contract for the remainder of the season and is in the 16 to face Yeovil on saturday. He will wear the number 28 shirt.(6)(3)Y not shirt 18 its vacated after gnapka left


16 Mar 2012 14:06:28
Sam Hoskins to Swindon on loan from Southampton Thought he was loaned to Rotherham yesterday? Not too convinced the site link is accurate here.I posted this but it looks like vital football have got it wrong. He's definitely at RotherhamCheers for the update.


16 Mar 2012 12:53:54
Bradford to sign Chris Dagnall today.(14)(13)FACT on Reds web site Wombwell RedThank god hes useless......


16 Mar 2012 11:55:53
wilfred zaha has signed a pre-contract at liverpool thought to be around 9million
JOSH(13)(56)You can only sign a pre contract in the last 6 months before going out of contract - in which case there would only be a fee because Zaha is under 24. So - this is clearly garbage.How can he sign a pre contract with Liverpool if he has over 5 years left on his contract at Palace. Pre contracts are for players who's contracts are due to expire and in any event they can't agree a deal with a club in the same country till it has actually expired!!


16 Mar 2012 11:55:20
Keith Curle is in talks with Leeds united again for more end of season loans, apparently Paytner coming to the lane is still on the cards, also Forsell is a wanted man by Mr.Curl.(15)(7)Warnock wants as many fringe players whose contract is up out on loan to view them rather than givin them 5 or 10 min sub appearancesThis is great , positive news and sends out a message to all Division One rivals that we, at last,are ready for a 10 game dice throw for play-off glory!! Ray Trew ,Notts County chairman, is so good at dealing I think if these two come it will spur us on. Paynter and Forsell are ideal for our level and will love our unique little club. Ray & Keith - you are a dream team and thanks from all Magpies fans for feeding our dreams!


16 Mar 2012 11:33:40
Ipswich, Southampton, West Ham and Reading have been offered Jason Pearce from Portsmouth.(11)(15)Is it just me or would it be a massive betrayal for him to go to saints?It will be Watford or IpswichWhy would it be Watford or Ipswich? I f i was Pearce (btw i'm a Pompey fan), i'd choose either Reading or West Ham.Nah He'd be bench warming at best with Reading, Wet Spam, or Saints, nope he'll be better off being a Tractor Boy also Ward could be offered as well, Ipswich are building for next season, another win today, COYB


16 Mar 2012 11:16:12
Big summer moves Loic Remy-Tottenham, Lukas Podolski-Arsenal, Ezequiel Lavezzi-Manchester City, Luka Modric-Manchester United, Alexandre Pato-Liverpool.(6)(46)Pato Liverpool are you mad?


16 Mar 2012 11:14:59
Any Huddersfield transfer news(4)(13)You will be getting loads of loan players and past their best sheite just like larry did for us at leeds sorry lads cant see any hope.That's funny coming from a Warnock club. Stick to watching the dross mate and think of Bates living the high life in Monaco on your cash.Warnock was superb in the transfer market at huddersfield built a promotion winning side for peanuts.Yes, and we went to Wembley twice with him, but didn't want him back, like lots of other Town fans. The football was dire.


16 Mar 2012 09:22:08
Lewis Grabban has been sighted at Plymouth's training ground, I can see his scruff from here. There are talks of Plymouth signing him on loan with a fee agreed for the end of the season. Hope this isnt the case as hes st!(3)(11)


16 Mar 2012 07:25:55
reports suggest Norwich City are leading the race to sign Watford centre half Adrian Mariappa in the summer transfer window(12)(8)Not sure there will be much of a chase - Watford turned down 2.5m for him from Newcastle - so it will be between 3m and 5m i guess


16 Mar 2012 02:50:54
Good news-Tottenham are looking to sign Loic Remy,Jan Vertonghen,James Mclean,Eden Hazard and Loic Remy this summer. Bad news-Modric and Bale to be sold.(14)(35)Blimey, signing Loic Remy twice. Didn't realise he was that good.Not quit spot on, only modric would leave out of the two & james mclean won't be signing its more like the celtic player forrester(sp)?Wrong on all accountsWrong on all.accounts? Remy had a quote pulled from the internet during the week claiming he will be playing at spurs next season and is looking forward to linking up with hazard! His (remy) agent has also said remy will be a spurs player!! and IF modric goes, he goes top spain or italy for 40 mill & if chelsea, city or united want him they will have to fork out an extra 10 mill.Spurs will sign anything as long as it has two legsThat rules you out then as an ass has four legsHazard and Remy are obviously possibilities and Vertonghen also although we need to have qualified for the CL next season. McLean no I don't think so. Bale won't move and it would be hard to find a buyer willing to pay the 45 plus mill for Luka, Real and Barca don't need him, United don't seem to have that kind of money for one player, City don't need him, Chelsea would like him but Levy won't sell to them and if they don't make CL then Luka wouldn't move anywayIf we sign these players it would be a hugh step forward, am i the only one watching modric and in the big games dont think he shows enough, so i for one would not mindgetting rid longs we brings the sought afters players in dont understand ione thing, all this supposed signings, surely they are only targets until the managerial situation is sortedLoic remy must be good if their signing him twiceThey can have the rest but aint getting jimmy mac


16 Mar 2012 01:20:23
Ibrahima Camara is on trial at Walsall and played in their behind closed doors friendly against Hereford in the week, Camara has been without a team since he was released by Belgian second division side Eupen at the end of last season(8)(4)


15 Mar 2012 23:58:45
Liverpool could have a net spend of over £100m this summer with Bale{£50m},Wilshere{£45m} and Torres{£30m} all on Daglish's wishlist. Hoilett,Kara and Smithies are also summer targets with Hoilett likely to be the first of the summer signings. Liverpool's targets are unrealistic but if they are willing to break the bank who knows. Kuyt,Rodriguez,Adam,Cole,Aurelio,Downing and Aquilani will all be cleared off the wage bill this summer and will probably bring in between £30-40m. Will Bale and Wilshere want to leave probably not but if Wenger leaves and Redknapp takes the England job then who knows. These signings would make a huge statement and will take Liverpool back into the upper echelons of English football for many years to come. Liverpool have not been shy in paying huge fees for young British players having splashed £35m on Andy Carroll and £16m on Jordan Henderson. Chelsea are desperate to offload Torres this summer but don't want to take anymore than a £20m hit on their £50m man, Liverpool's former number 9 has failed to settle and is apparently unhappy at Stamford bridge and unhappy with life in London. Chelsea are willing to offer Drogba the 2-year deal he wants and Ba,Falcao,Llorrente and Cavani are all being looked at as possible replacements with Ba and Llorente the more likely deals. Big deals that might happen this summer M'Vila-Arsenal,Hazard-Tottenham,Modric-United, Lavezzi-City,Llorente-Chelsea(9)(74)We are trying to kick drugs out of football, stop smoking that st, even acid should not produce that sort of delutions.I can't see all these things happening but who knows? I would love to see a squad of -Reina-Doni-Smithies-Flanagan-Johnson-Kelly-Skrtel-Agger-Carragher-Coates-Wilson-Enrique-Robinson-Coady-Spearing-Shelvey-Lucas-Wilshere-Gerrard-Henderson-Suso-Sterling-Hoilett-Bale-Bellamy-Morgan-Suarez-Carroll-TorresLiverpool are looking to sign Angelo Ogbonna who is an Italian centre half who can also play left back and holding midfielder. Hoilett is most likely.Biggest pile of st I've heard in a long timeAnd Bale would want to go to Liverpool because...?

The glory days are over - you're an upper-middle table club with Europa League ambitionsDay release, people don't worry, he will be back in his room later and saying 'cheeseburger'....
bale certainly wouldn't go to liverpool, esp after what he said about them!
also can't see spurs selling both modric and bale, only modric will probably go and then its either spain or italy? & hoilett is off to london!These would be dream signings but so would Ronaldo and Messi also don't know why Liverpool would want Torres back he is mentally shot and probably past his sell by date not sure if Liverpool would pay 20 for him nevermind 30m. Kuyt,Spearing,Adam,Downing,Aquilani,Pacheco,Aurelio,Cole,Rodriguez,Doni and Jones are all rumoured to be close to the axe. Carroll and Henderson are safe as they are long term investments. Liverpool should sell the players mentioned above and dream signings since were all playing CM on this site are Pato,Bale,Vidal,Wilshere,Hoilett and Ogbonna.Best post ever, prize winning BSEven by footy manager standards this is far fetched.

You've just made a wish list of players you would like but have no chance of signing.Carroll, Henderson long term investments. I hope you don't manage my share options then. Their values only going one way and it's not up!45 mil for the same wilshere whos been out all season nearlyIve a funny feeling torres was not on kennys wishlist ha


15 Mar 2012 23:01:20
Liverpool are hoping to make David Hoilett their first summer signing. Dirk Kuyt,Maxi Rodriguez,Fabio Aurelio,Brad Jones,Alberto Aquilani,Joe Cole and Dani Pacheco are all expected to be heading for the exit while Charlie Adam's form will have to improve or he may also be sacrificed. {Ed025's Note - you forgot carroll and henderson..(12)(17)And Johnson, and of course Suarez will want out.Kuyt wont go anywhere and neither will Adam. Dirk Kuyt is to liverpool man utds Park is. A 'big game' player as we saw in the carling cup final. Adam has a lot more to come and he has made an average transition from. Blackpool to Anfield, that is very hard to do as we have seen with many other players. They Do need a better passer in the middle of the park though as they miss the likes of Alonso.


15 Mar 2012 20:54:04
Guiseley have just signed Jason Price!(10)(4)


15 Mar 2012 20:48:25
Preston have made a bid to sign Shrewsbury striker James Collins.(5)(8)


15 Mar 2012 20:46:49
Oldham Athletic are keen on signing Doncaster defender James Husband on loan until the end of the season. The Rovers youngster is keen on first team football and could link up with Paul Dickov until the end of the season.
Another player wanted by Dickov is Bradford captain Michael Flynn, who is subject of an undisclosed bid from the Legaue 1 club.(3)(4)


15 Mar 2012 20:43:24
New Notts County manager Keith Curle has held talks today with chairman Ray Trew and has been given the go ahead to bag upto four players in the summer.
Curle has made a bid for Preston utility player Paul Parry. Parry has told current North End boss Graham Westley that he wants a summer move away from Deepdale after not agreeing with recent tactics.
Paul Dummett, currently of Newcastle United, will sign a season long loan deal for the whole of next season. Curle struck the deal late last night. The defender is currently on loan at Gateshead and has so far impressed and is keen on a chance in the Football League.
Curle has made an ambitious bid for Charlton midfielder Scott Wagstaff. Curle is only expected to pursue the bid of County get promotion to the Championship.
The final player wanted by Curle is Adrian Reid. Reid has been training with the club since he was put on gardening leave at his club Portmore United of Jamaica. United have suspended the 26 year old for breach of his contract (training with DC United behind Portmore's back) and could sign a season long contract once the season ends.(2)(7)Paul parry is not leaving pne he as said more than once he loves it at pneParry's out of contract at the end of the season. I doubt he'll stay unless he agrees to a new deal on vastly reduced wages.


15 Mar 2012 20:31:53
Dave Jones has been given over £1 million to spend in the summer transfer window and has already announced that he is expected to sign around three players on pre contracts in the next week.
Colchester defender John White has already held talks with Jones this week and is expected to sign for around £220,000 in the next week. The 25 year old is not expected to sign a loan deal but will stay with United until the end of the season.
Jones is also keen on making a bid for Hull striker Aaron McLean. The former Peterborough hitman has declared himself being unhappy at being played out of position and has not recently played a lot of football. McLean is expected to stay at The KC but if Wednesday get promoted or Hull City achieve the same but to the Premier League, it could become a reality that a season long loan deal could be struck for next season.
The final player expected to sign is another Colchester player in Jordan Sanderson. The 18 year old hasn't played at all this season but has impressed Jones in the reserves and is seen as the 'next big thing' to come out of the Essex side.(4)(16)


15 Mar 2012 20:24:09
Sheffield United are expected to sign Bristol Rovers striker Matt Harrold on loan until the end of the season with a view to a full time deal in the summer.(2)(13)This is a typo its actually Harold Steptoe that united are interested in, aparently "Hercules" his cart horse will fit in well with their current back four.UTO


15 Mar 2012 20:12:58
Bradford city are set to do a deal with Morecambe about a deal to swap Robbie Threlfall with Phil Jevons on an end to season loan deal.(2)(7)


15 Mar 2012 19:39:43
Sheffield Wednesday are going to re-sign former youth team player Paul Green from Derby if they return to the championship.(4)(7)


15 Mar 2012 18:22:31
middlesbrough about to sign polish international malecki on a free transfer from wisla krakow after he was allowed to leave after a bust up with the manager(13)(5)Good business by boro could put a couple of 1,000 on their crowds as north east has loads of poles living here ye think sunderland would sign a japanese player and newcastle an israeli to get more in the groundsHe has been on trail and has now gone back to poland, mogga hasn't ruled out signing him in the summer


15 Mar 2012 16:34:59
Hayden Mullins sign for Reading on loan(20)(1)


15 Mar 2012 16:05:42
It does now appear that Oxford's money issues are VERY real!!....

Some very worried people behind the scenes.

I thought the whole thing was a wind up coming from the other end of the A420 who have little love for the Yellows.

They need to get promotion and then sell which is not a good mix....however failure to go up will mean no increase in the value of the players.

Chiris Wilder has been instructed that going up through the play offs is the target...A Wembley final means more income for the cash strapped club.(8)(2)And your source is.....probably a Swindon fan. Worry about your own team. They are good, no doubt and will deservedly go up as champions but the money will soon dry up and with the 'cap' next season....could be a whole new problem....Not a Swindon fan im afraid you need to worry about your club and stop spouting off about Swindon all the time and their finances. I dont know how many times you lot need to be told but 99% of the players that went to Swindon this season were free transfers and all the big money earners were shipped out at the end of last season. we have the biggest crowds in the league - make the most revenue and the players are not on as big as money as you Oxford lot believe.

Players want to play for Di Canio as they see what he is doing at the club. We have some good sponsors. Samsung- four four two - EA sports - Intel - plus some other key sponsors. So where your information comes from is in your own tiny little brain and made up.

If you seriously think the people running our club are idiotic enough to get us into debt you are more deluded than you sound. They are all very successful business people and we were the only club in L1 who made a profit last season plus we sold 2 players last season for over 2 million.

So tell me your source- i know you dont know - youve made it up.You say not a Swindon fan.....and then go on to contradict yoursef. You may be right in that many of Your......players were free's. Dont know. Not that interested. But many have done well. However you are paying or should I say Swindon are paying huge salaries to their players.

I have no doubts we have depts, we dont own our ground. But the owner has stated on national radio the financial position of OUFC. Its ok, profits last season though this season not the case.

Biggest gates - wrong. Bradford have the biggest home gates. Oxford have the biggest away travelling support. Next season with the ' cap ' coming in many clubs, maybe Oxford but certainly others will have big problems. Swindon are paying huge wages and from what I know - I do have sources - Constable was offered big bucks to come to Swindon. Holmes was offered big bucks and we could not compete with the latter, hence he is now with you. Hope he playes as well for you as he did us because he is quality.
People want to play for PDC - er no, they want to play because Swindon pay good wages, much better than Oxford. But next season..... There is and always be bad feelings between the two clubs but get your facts right. I think the first sign of problemsand PDC will be long gone. Or a better offer from a bigger club, you wont see him for dustBradford have the biggest gates yes but they charge a low fee whereas we charge the most so what i meant was we create the most revenue of all clubs in L2. You have no idea what salaries our players are on you person you are guessing stop talking rubbish.Mmmm...whoever the Swindon Fan is..umm why take credit for this post? The reason I posted this was because I had to drive through Swindon and down that sodding A420 to go for a meeting in Oxford...(A road I wish to miss out on in future...sodding lorries), one of the people I met with is very well connected to Oxford and told those in attendance a few things....Because the result of that meeting did not go my way there is no reason for me to keep quiet about the content of that meeting....bottom line...If he is being truthful then Oxford are are in serious problems. Personally if I never have to go through eithe of these places again it will be too soon! ones full of roundabouts and the other full of suicidal cyclists who deem themselves indestructable!! Anyway....I have repeated what I was told...and the source is extremely solid. Take it or leave it.What you are saying about Oxford finances is true as they had an open forum the other night and they spouted out the debt figure which is just under 10 million - so its true. If Oxford fans dont believe it go on to your forum and you wil see your own fans are confirming it so its not a case of your neighbours down the road making it up -ITS FACTYes we have depts. most clubs do. We would have made profits for the second year in a row if we did not have so many injuries and had to keep going in for loanee's. Why do you think Holmes, for example joined Swindon....purely financial. Constable was offered a 5 figure sign on fee to join Swindon. I am not talking rubbish. I dont know the exact salaries Swindon pay, but I DO KNOW they are amoung the highest in the Division. Lets see what happens in the next season or two. Swindon have won the league on merit and good football, no question and I just hope that it can be sustained, thats all im saying. And going back to OUFC's financial situation, its not an issue and money is available.There is even a suggestion that we could get backers to buy the ground. The stumbling block is the crazy prize Kassam is asking and that money would not be paid


15 Mar 2012 15:27:42
I heard Jason Koumas to Bournemouth - free agent(5)(12)Wouldnt it be nice to see koumas grace a football field again. Possibly in his 1st loan spell at cardiff city at ninian park he was one of the best players ive seen. however over the last few years nothing much happened. Would love to see him back on the pitch good luck bournmouth


15 Mar 2012 13:14:16
Barnsley boss Keith Hill is set to announce the captures of Tommy Spurr from Doncaster and Burnley forward Danny Ings for deals that will be completed in the summer. Spurr will be signed from Rovers for an undisclosed fee on a three year contract while 19 year old striker Ings, will sign on loan for the whole season. The reason why Ings isn't set to sign this season has had to be waited until the end of the campaign is due to Eddie Howe already agreeing to let the former Bournemouth striker join Cardiff City on a one month loan deal.(5)(17)I doubt Eddie Howe would let a million pound striker move permanently after one season where he suffered an ankle injuryBarnsley have no money and spurr is the best full back in league!


15 Mar 2012 13:08:39
Inter Milan are set to wait until the summer to appoint a new manager and could appoint former West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo as their new boss.(2)(30)


15 Mar 2012 13:07:09
Wolves could make a surprise approach to appoint Bolton manager Owen Coyle as their new boss. Wanderers are keen on not keeping caretaker Terry Connor until the end of the season and could stump up atound a £4 million compensation fee to bag Coyle.(2)(20)As much as i dont think this will happen, ive also been told by a close friend that wolves have made contactCobblers. That is all.

GEGWolves or Bolton talk about between a rock and a hard placeLOL, Brilliant!If he gets offered more money he will go,thats the Coyle way


15 Mar 2012 12:54:10
Walsall are going to sign striker Nick Master from local Express and Star league side the Bulls. He's a big hitter.(3)(10)There isnt a local Express and Star League - Utter Rubbish

Burnley have signed Derby County midfielder on a pre-contract agreement as the player's contract expires in the summer.(2)(7)Who is it though?


15 Mar 2012 11:31:10
Arsenal to sign:

Podolski, Verthongen and Gotze early in the summer transfer window. They want to sign these p[layers early so that they can show RVP they mean business in a hope that he will then a new contract.(17)(14)You mean promising prospects rather than genuine world class players like you always do. RVP will be off thenIf you really mean business, pay him the ridiculous salary he wants, simple!!


15 Mar 2012 10:21:54
Gregg Wylde could join Charlton after the cancelation of his Rangers contract earlier this week. Setanta and The Mirror both say that three premier league clubs are also chasing his signature but Charlton are offering the biggest signon fee.

Charlton can't compete with the premier clubs money should the signon fee offers be revised. However, better first team chances and the chance to join a "Gers friendly club" may sway it for them.(4)(12)


15 Mar 2012 09:14:55
Sky sports wolves after Gary megson wtf(19)(12)Denied by club - usual rubbish spouted by skyGets better do they know who was the manager of beforeIf it's true !!

Reading appear to have failed in their attempts to bring versatile midfielder, Ndumba Makeche, 17, across from Perth to the Madejski.

Makeche, recommended to the Berkshire side by former socceroo Alastair Edwards, has been named in the squad for Perth Glory's match against Gold Coast United on Sunday.(10)(3)


15 Mar 2012 06:28:42
Emmanuel Ledesma is going to sign for Walsall again on Thursday or Friday this week.(4)(9)Nope as much as I would love that for walsall, he is playing for an argentinian side called Defensa y Justicia.

southampton reportedly interested in jason pearce,he would be a great cover but not sure if he is prem quality(9)(13)Who said they were going up there is shill around 10 games leftDoesn't need to be, as neither are youPremiership quality? Last time i checked you were still in the Championship with teams coming up fast on West Ham & your flanks.Saints have ambition, you lot obviously don't. Check again, only one team coming up fast.Lol, any other team and people wouldnt pounce, but you skates really cant help yourselves can joke of a club. Community club of the year, because your all bloody related. See you in the prem...oh wait, you'll never get there. AFC Portsmouth within 12monthsI'm no pompey fan but if you think what is happening to pompey is funny then you are no football fan. shame on you.Saints fans are all full of they think they are a big club shake your heads west ham and reading up automatic then play off winners middlesbroughCan't really see why Saints would need cover in central defence as they have 5 players available now to last through the final 10 games. Should be more than enough!
Perhaps it is a cunning plan to weaken the Pompey squad further ahead of their coming visit to St. Marys-if it happens!Just shook my head and, yep, i'm not dreaming. Saints are top and Pompey bottom. Love it!Ipswich also in for the pompey pair of Ward & Pearce,I m a football fan and i reckon what s happening to pompey is hilariousI posted about 'Premiership Quality?' 3...and, to all you high & mighty sad Southampton fans, i'm NOT a Portsmouth fan. I was just stating facts. Reel your necks in now!

chelsea= hulk 70m
everton= doyle 5.5m
fulham= gignac 7m
liverpool= keita 8m
man.c= gaitan 30m
man.u= hazard 35m
newcastle= corgnet 6m
norwich= snodgrass 4.5m
qpr= ballack free
stoke= lukaku loan
sunderland= k.davies free
swansea= church 2m
spurs= vertongen 15m
w.brom= gardner 5m
wigan= marippra 4.5m
wolves= frimpong loan(14)(19)LOL at any prem club wanting church, i would imagine Sig would be at the top of their listWatford accepted 3m for Mariappa but he rejected Wigan anyway. Why would he change his mind when they'll be in the Championship and why would Wigan bid more? How long did you spend making all this stuff up? Haven't you got anything better to do?Snodgrass is no longer a target for Lambert at Norwich, this ship has sailed, after he signed Pilkington instead.


14 Mar 2012 17:18:55
two transfers which will
happen from now until the end
of season
b.zenden to blackburn free until end
of season
l.podolski to arsenal 10.6mill [fee
agreed and he had medical](11)(3)


14 Mar 2012 17:07:10
aston villa will have a overhaul of
squad in the summer
players coming
holdmen free[done deal]
j.butterfield free
keane 4m
j.lewis[peterboro goalie]1.5m
pogrebynak free [if he doesn't sign
new contract with fulham]
players leaving
heskey free
guzan free
delph 2m
cueller free(4)(13)Butterfield will go to a tribunel if a fee can not be agreed due to is ageJacob Butterfield will not be free he his under24 and fee will be decided by a tribunal
guess fee will be 1k plusJoe lewis would be a free.It's Holman he is very good expect him to be a good fit at villa also how highly to people in England rate Chris herd? CheersWe at villa rate herd very highly - without him at villa our defence can't help out the wingers.
Cuellar is in new contract talks (source mcleish),delph is not leaving and mcleish has said he was gin no-where in january.
pogrebynak,johnson,guthrie will most likely sign all on free transfers.
delfouneseo,heskey and probably dunne out!
dunne will be kicked out as cieran clark is too good already!Why would Pogrebnyak leave Fulham, a team on the up, for Villa who are a team who are heading in only one direction DOWNWARDS. Not quite relegation fodder next year but will be closer to that end of the table then Europe where Fulham will be.Fulham near Europe? don't make me laugh!
Pogrebynak is on loan matey!
Dempsey is wanting european football - he'll leave.
Square one again for you dumpties at Fulham!
Villa have a promising youth selection and will be 10th-ish next year i predict - depending on transfers.^ very well said!


14 Mar 2012 17:00:16

14 Mar 2012 12:12:05
Could any ed shed some light on a rumour? last night on and including fb (which someone cut & pasted), there was a report on the internet which was pulled nearly an hour after going on, the report came from france quoting loic remmy claiming he will be a spurs player next season and that hes looking forward to linking up with hazard?, I understand bale is staying (?), but if it were true could you see the little pearl (modric) moving?? I'm told if theres no C.L, then he will be allowed to leave BUT only to spain or italy? but its the remmy/hazard rumour ed, why would it go up and then get pulled??, it was posted on a couple of well respected sites as well as a couple of run of the mill sites? {Ed001's Note - Remy has been claiming he will be joining Spurs for a while, my thinking is that the issue will be that Spurs have yet to do a deal with his club, possibly? So any story will be pulled to avoid tapping up claims if so. Sorry, just checked it out and it his agent saying he will be going to Spurs, but World Soccer mentioned his agent dropping hints in this month's edition as well. So it does seem to be well known, like I said it can only be a lack of agreement with his club being a reason to pull it.}(2)(2)If its true about hazard and remy i for one will be a very happy spurs fan

Lee Holmes has left and gone to Swindon(14)(3)Really good player and all at Oxford thought he was a great success. So gutted he has gone but only strengthens Swindon and there push for promotion. Good luck for rest of the seasonThanks, Holmes had a three month spell with us when he was 17, he was fantastic back then, I am hoping he will do well this time around.


14 Mar 2012 13:53:56
Looks like Ipswich have reopened the move for Portsmouth defender Pearce, Pompey administrator Trevor birch keen to off load Pearce from the wage bill, and has offered him to Ipswich, although there was a rumour that West Ham & Southampton were also after his services, would be a real kick in the bcks for the Pompey fans if he went to southampton, and at West Ham he would probaly only bench warm, as he would at Southampton, so hopefully he will go to a club where he will be looked after, and dont rule out Ward following him there(12)(4)

CHAIRMAN John Berylson has snubbed a bid for Millwall as he closes in on five years at the helm of the club.

The Den chief rejected a multi- million-pound offer for the Lions - because he wants to keep running it.

Fans have reacted with relief to the news he has no intention of selling out soon - even if the offer is a sizeable one.

One, 'Lucky', posted on fans' site House of Fun: "If this is true then good for him and proves he has the long-term future of this club at heart."

And 'Rascalchops' said: "We wouldn't appreciate the likes of Balotelli, Tevez and the like playing for us. We want Hurlocks, Robinsons, Craigs, Harrises and, Rhinos."

A Middle Eastern consortium approached him several weeks ago with a bid and asked him to still mastermind Millwall for up to five years.

But the American is believed to have told them: "Anyone who knows me, knows I am not the employee type. Members of my family have only ever worked for themselves or the military."(4)(1)LOL What a load of old billy!This is true it was reported in south london press last weekI read in a newspaper that Evlis was alive and well and living on the moon, dont make it true now does it?
