  To the Newcastle fan who thinks he supports a "big" club, Tottenham are one of many London Clubs, Newcastle have a captive audience being the only Club in the City. So even with the 50,000+ capacity opposed to our 36,000 capacity (soon to be increased by the way) why then are Tottenham the 11th Richest club in the world. no answer. thought not. go back to your whippet sandwich and worry about when KK is going to walk out on you again and leave the big clubs to compete for the quality players on the market.

Tottenham to try for the following;






  Arsenal rumours.

when Arsene Wenger said about arshavin playing in the Premiership next he seemed very confident of it suggesting only one thing. Arshavin is going to Arsenal–Arsene Wenger has cleary sounded his interest by stating he is the highlight of euro 2008. he will joined by yaya Toure in swap deal for Hleb, bastian sweinsteiger will also come for around 10–15 million, samir Nasri's move will be completed in the next few days for a fee of 15–19 million and finnally if Adebayor goes expect one of these players to come In: Santa cruz, obafemi Martins, David Villa, Dani guiza or suprisingly bafetimba gomis the highly rated St. Etienne forward who is dubbed the new Drogba.


  Many thanks to the Newcastle fan for giving Tottenham and Everton fans a lesson on what constitutes a big club. Seems you need an owner worth 1.4bn and a ground with a capacity of 52000. Well Tottenham fail on both accounts. Our owner is worth 4bn, with another billionaire on the board and a decision will be made soon on a new ground with a capacity of 60000. Also having a few friends at boardroom level at Tottenham I have to ask is not that Newcastle owner Mike the same one who's best friend is Paul Kemsley. Paul who used to be on the Tottenham board and attended White Hart Lane for years with a certain Tottenham supporter now Newcastle owner.

  Few players leaving deepdale this Summer.

hawley, nicholls and jarret

coming in to deepdale will be,

barry nicholson – Aberdeen,

kaspars Gorkss – Blackpool,

Craig Beattie – West Bromwich,

anichebe – Everton (loan).

  Latest Norwich movements to happen

Ins: sibierski – Wigan free

tyson rejected Forest offer of new contract wants to team up with mate clinigan

Gow from Rangers

Oakley – Leicester

Outs: Russel

The donkey Doherty – MLS yipeeeeeeeee

  Mark Hudson is a Watford target to cover for Dan Shittu join Rsngers for £4 mill

  I have it on good authority that West Bromwich are working on a deal to bring Louis Saha to the Hawthorns. Wages would be the major stumbling block, but Man United will subsidise some of his wage packet, following the good relations regarding the Tomasz Kuszczak deal.

Sherjill MacDonald and David Worrall are also being lined up for year long loans at Leicester, working under Nigel Pearson and Craig Shakespeare, both ex–Albion men.

  Everton will sign:

Bastian Schweinstiger

Mario Gomes or Klass Jan Huntelaar

Arda Turan or Joaquin or Stuart Downing

Orlando Engelaar or Tom Huddlestone

Everton will miss out on Arshavin.

Steve Round will be Moyes no2.

  EFC Rumours (not news)

Moyes has not signed a deal yet, not because he wants to leave, he's making sure he's given a hefty transfer fund BEFORE committing. In addition to this, there have been two or three impromptu board meetings regarding the stadium and what is widely rumoured to be an offer for the club.

If FC Barcelona cool their interest in Arshavin, he will join either Arsenal or Everton (probably Arsenal to be fair)

Joe Ledley could sign, it is just a matter of not paying an extortianate fee for him. Joe Mattock will also sign.

If Lennon does not go to Blackburn in that p/ex deal with Bentley that everyone seems to be going on about.

Finally to settle matters between the Toffees and Tottenham vs. the Barcodes, big clubs do not have their website ran by premiumtv. That is a fact. They also have trophies in the cabinet and something called HISTORY. Chelsea are arguably not a big club YET as both Everton and Tottenham are technically more successful over time. Though obviously Chelsea are currently one of the best teams in the land and as they keep winning then they will, of course, become one.

  Marko Marin, young German international winger, to Liverpool

: –p

  I can tell you from a very good source A. spear is going to Newcastle Plymouth do not know how to treat quality talent good luck lad

  Roy Keane is currently negotiating a contract with Spain star, who was top goalscorer in La Liga last season Mallorca's Daniel Guiza (scored the third for Spain in S/F) he is expected to sogn for around £10 million and be on £40,000 a week. also Keven Doyle and Stephen Hunt to sign from Reading £10 million for both. There is no chance Jonny Evans will join the circus he is a mackem through and through and would never join the. forget it Keegan

  Firstly, the rumour that Andy driver of Hearts is leaving is nonsense. he has already stated he will be at Hearts next season.

the managers situation is again drawing more names as jurgen rober was apparently offered the job. this is not a done deal as he wishes to look over facillities in edinburgh. the other names in the frame which have not been released are temuri ketsbaia (is unlikely he will sign as is enjoying anathorsis famagusta) and the possible return of ivanauskas. the fourth name is still unknown but the only other name to be linked with Hearts is the zygmantovich of mtz ripo.

  There will be two Spanish players, one Italian and a German. The two other players must be british. If you read more into it you will find out who the Italian is.

By the Italian player I assume you mean andrea dossena. Anyway I have also heard some whispers floating around Anfield and what of heard matches what you have said apart from one detail. you said six signings, which could well be right I have only heard of 5. Namely the five players were:

1) David Silva (Spain)

2) Sergio Garcia (Spain)

3) Andrea Dossena (Italian)

4) Bastien Schweinsteiger (Germany)

5) Gareth Barry (british)

if your right about the sixth player and him being british not a rumours just a guess really but could he be Robbie Keane from Tottenham? Sorry if the rumour is not right like I said it's just what I have heard

  I tipped Robbie Keane to be heading to Anfield way back in May and rumours are now rife that this is about to happen. he will sign in July as part of a swap deal for Crouch with £5 million going to Tottenham aswell.

Also strong rumours that Liverpool are linked with a move for Swienstieger, but I cannot see it myself. more likely that David Silva will sign after the Euros.

  Following the EXCLUSIVE posted on Football–Rumours. com about Abramovich emerging as a key figure in assisting the signing of Ronaldo for Real by offering a generous sum for Robinho, AS. COM reports 'Abramovich offers 35 million for Robinho' but Real will hold out for more than 45 million and they will likely get it.

  Wolves' transfer–listed Rob Edwards has attracted strong interest from Championship outfit, Blackpool.

Wolves are keen to offload some of their transfer–listed players. With Freddy Eastwood (Coventry) and Darren Potter (Southampton) soon to complete deals.

Wolves appear to have the "all clear" in their quest for Hearts defender Christophe Berra.

Bristol City have denied any approach from Wolves concerning midfielder Marvin Elliot.

  Leeds could sign Hartlepool's James Brown as the young winger wants to move to a bigger club.

  How did Rafa watch skrtel for so long and not notice a guy named ARSHAVIN? Anyway the rumours are simple. Arsenal get (Nasri) to replace Hleb, (Toure) for Flamini, and a replacement for Adebayor who is going to leave. He had one good season and he is not Henry more like Anelka. Diogo will also come. Liverpool will get Barry and sell Alonso. Man United will get Robinho + a lot of money for Ronaldo. Chelsea will get any big name they can probally Kaka or Ronaldinho. Lastly sorry TOTTENHAM, MODRIC is not a huge name, just a huge price so no Ramos revelation has started and Berbatov is the best forward in the world and people are blind if the do not see that, (im a Arsenal Fan), and Newcastle is a bigger club then Everton and Tottenham, but if they keep falling then they can join Leeds and Nottingham Forest. Young Gunners.

  I work at the Brittania Stadium club shop and have seen Loius Saha, Stelios and Brian Howard all being shown around this week, Great signings if we can get them.

  I work for the security firm Man United use to hire bodyguards for their players/coaches and directors.

requests for week commencing 14/07/08

–heavy security presence for a training session and 4 press confrences

requests for next season

–continue to provide assistance to Ronaldos private security team

–2 bodyguards to be based in lancashire (for the brazlian twins Burnley/Preston/Blackburn? )

–also a inrease of 5 bodyguards from 20 to 25 for all matchdays.

–along with the normal high security matches this year (other top 4 and City) totenham and Everton have been raised to high security (Berbatov Moyes? )

  Ade to Barcelona, Santa Cruz in.

Hleb to either FC Barcelona or Inter, Nasri In.

Flamini gone to Milan, Veloso In.

Senderos to Werder Brehman, Chelsealini in.

Lehmann to Stuttgart, Coupet in.

Watch and remember

  Liverpool will tie up the Dossena deal this week and eventually sign Barry then go after Silva and Villa.

If unsuccessful Rafa will turn his attentions to Robbie Keane and Schweinsteiger/Reira. Keane as we all know is a massive LFC fan and would jump at the chance of playing for his boyhood hero's and finally get the chance to play in the ECL.

Rick Parry will be placed by the end of July with Alistair Mackintosh and David Dein being the top targets.

  Arsenal will announce signing of Nasri in next couple of days. Also arriving this week is Amaury Bischoff from Werder Bremen for £5 million.

  Aiden McGeady has spotted outside the Stadium of Light

  Arsenal will tie up the deal for French playmaker Samir Nasri this week. Expect to see Adebayor undertaking a medical at AC Milan. Man United will make a double swoop for Sevilla star Jesus Navas and Blackburn hitman Roque Santa Cruz. Everton are attempting to make a deal for Manuel Fernandes permanent. Deco will fly to London for talks with Chelsea. Newcastle are on the verge of signing £6 million rated Pablo Cesar Aimar from relegated side Real Zaragoza they are also willing to test Chelsea's nerve by making a move for Shaun Wright–Phillips. Sunderland and Wigan are two of the clubs chasing Spanish forward Daniel Guiza. Expect the future of Peter Crouch to be decided this week as well.
