dean hoyle on holiday with phil brown coming back tommorrow to announce appointment on sky(2)(15)Simon Grayson will be appointed the new Town manager either tomorrow or Tuesday. Dean Hoyle wants a young manager with a track record of taking teams up - Grayson fits the bill. His Leeds teams played attractive, attacking football, just what Town fans want to see and just what the squad is capable of delivering with the right leadership. Town for promotion either through 2nd place or the play offs. Phil Brown - no way.Cant disagree mate i would love to have grayson as new manager sadly i dont think it will happen.fingers crossed mindSounds like grayson in today.... considering hoyle bin in country since satday dont think ur telling truth unless he took him to filey!!!


19 Feb 2012 17:06:19
locazade are going to help to fund brentfordnew stadum(1)(18)Why can't people spell check such simple things? Locazade makes it sound so unreliable...


19 Feb 2012 16:48:13
Just heard this strange one. Doubt it's true but here goes.... Billy Davies interested in and supposedly on Notts County's managerial shortlist(3)(21) 

Billy thinks waaaaaaaaay too much of himself to drop to L1. I'd have though he was concentrating far more on the Wolves job.If jimmy krankie was to return to Nottingham I doubt he would go to County


19 Feb 2012 15:01:19
Reading want to bring Jermaine Defoe in on loan to boost their promotion bid.

Defoe has been frustrated by his lack of games this season, and in January Spurs brought in Saha, pushing Defoe further down the pecking order.

New billionaire owner Anton Zingarevich want's a signature summer signing to announce his reign at Reading, and it is believed he wants to bring in Michael Owen and Alex Hleb - Source: Various Sunday papers.(6)(64)Someone jokingly put this on a forum then suddenly it appears here, if your going to make up rumours about the club I support at least make them believable.A million to one againstWhich paper had the defoe rumour/rubbish in?Why do we need defoe we've got big Jason RobertsNever mind half term is over and you can go back to school next weekOwen maybe but Defoe for Reading is just sillyDefoe is from a solid source, but Spurs said no. West Ham also tried in January buy got knocked back and then went for the Bristol City chap.

Hleb and Owen were in one or two of the Sunday rags. Not from my source. May be paper talk. There will be many rumours with Anton and his backers looking to take Reading back to the Premiership.Sugar daddy on football manager??


19 Feb 2012 14:37:24
Watford are after a loan striker to replace Marvin Sordell and to get goals following the poor form of striker Chris Iwelumo. Watford are either after Marcello Trotta from Fulham or Nick Blackman from Blackburn.(13)(7)Have heskey mate ill pay his wages for ya and ill drive him from birmingham to watford for freeDear Villa supporter - it is a deal only if you take IwelumuNope, wrong. It's neither of those two but a striker will be signing on Wednesday. Massey will return to Colchester for a month but the club want him back in April to give him games before the end of the season.Honestly think one of these would happen, probably Nick Blackman. good player he has potential.Who do you think Watford will sign on Wednesday?Think Bolton....

And its not Sordell!


19 Feb 2012 13:53:01
Bohemians 20 year old winger Lee Dixon is linked with a move to League One side Walsall, he will sign on loan until end of season then sign for £80,000 in the summer.

Make his debut away at Scunthorpe this Tuesday!!!!(2)(12)


19 Feb 2012 11:39:12
Middlesbrough are keen on making a £1.5 million for Brighton winger Craig Noone. Tony Mowbray is in need of a winger and sees Noone as someone who could give them that extra bite on the side of midfielder, whatever division there in next season.(6)(17)


19 Feb 2012 11:36:05
Doncaster Rovers are set to pip Port Vale to sign midfielder Chris Birchall. The Trinidad & Tobago player has recently left LA Galaxy but will sign a deal with Rovers until the end of the season.(3)(12)


19 Feb 2012 11:34:06
Leicester City have made a £300,000 bid for Stevenage midfielder Michael Bostwick.(8)(12)Will that make a squad of 50 they appear
to be signing players whenever possible
BEWARE look at pompey


19 Feb 2012 11:32:21
Chelsea are set to sign Tunisian youngster Youssef Msakni. The midfielder has attracted a lot of interest from a number of Premier League sides but Andre Villas Boas is set to capture the 21 year old from Esperance Tunis.(1)(12)You need superstars to use straight away, and not youngsters with potential in the next few years. Your future is now why can't AVB see this. He us ruining you.Yeah like hes guna go chelsea, when arsenal, sampdoria, napoli and lille are watching him... i wouldnt wanna play for AvB


19 Feb 2012 11:25:50

19 Feb 2012 10:27:20
Peterborough are set to bring in Dave Kitson on a emergency loan. Pompey are looking to slash their wage bill, and Kitson has always wanted to play for Peterborough.(7)(42)"Kitson has always wanted to play for Peterborough." Since whenI also heard Messi has always wanted to play for Bristol cityNo body desires to play for Peterborough but beggars can't be choosersWell played peterbough at win over bristol city im a city fan and showed no fight hope next season we give you more a fight"Kitson has always wanted to play for Peterborough." Having started his career with the U's..... yeah right.Next season brissle will be in league one what you talkin about!You are kidding, right? Kitson is a long time Spurs fan. His second passion remains with Reading. His words, not mine. He shares no affiliation with P'boro.

Back to school tomorrow.How will this reduce your wage bill?


18 Feb 2012 23:37:40
Guly Do Prado is set for a summer move back to his native Brazil as he is now not considered a regular at Southampton with Chaplow, De Ridder and Puncheon all above him to play on the wing and Sharp, Lee, Connolly and Barnards considered better up front !(12)(15)He was just ill yesterdayIf you had any clue about saints you would know that Adkins rates guly highly and slots him into the team all the time. On the official site it states that he was ill. Probally a Pompey fan because you have nothing to talk about apart from "we are skint"Bullst. He was ill at the weekend, hence Chaplow filling in on the right, and Guly is younger and better than Connelly, and he is better than Barnard, so thats 2 strikers he better than, and he fills a right midfield slot that we have only one other natural player at, which is puncheon, so if anything, we would be keeping him and off loading one of the aforementioned players.


18 Feb 2012 23:19:24
Notts County are considering sounding out Paul Sturrock after they relieved Martin Allen of his duties.(10)(4)Bahha

next joke pleaseThe only joke is that your lot have sacked the best manager you have had in years.
At the start of the season when the biggest club in Nottingham knocked you out of the cup, he was the best thing since sliced bread. A few weeks later I heard notts fans calling him god. A few weeks later he gets sacked.........I hope you lot are proudIts no joke mate. Sturrock is one of the better manager's in the bottom two divisions and he's on a rolling deal at Southend. Notts Cou nty will look for a cheap appointment and Sturrock will be good value considering only being on that rolling deal.Yes that's the biggest club in Nottingham with the 75m debt is it?! The bigger they are the harder they fall - I don't know,one win against ANOTHER bottom three side and you sound like you've won the Champions League!!There's no argument that we are not the biggest club then, other than we are out of the bottom three and victor chandler will be buying us soon.
Now that's out of the way, what is clowntys opinion in his sacking.
The ohe friend I have that does support your lot is totally shocked and disgusted at the decision. What do the other three fans think??Oh and who mentioned anything about yesterday's result?? Win, lose or draw we are still the biggest team in NottinghamSturrock wont leave a promotion team with southend to manage a unstable club like notts county.

Such a strange club and embrassing club Notts County are.The second biggest team in notts beat the steelers last night. Fact.Here we go again the same person that posts sturrock is going for every job possible, you have a real boner for sturrock... do you love him....


18 Feb 2012 21:17:08

phil brown has got the huddersfield job press conference on monday.comes from a neighbour of chairman dean hoyle(10)(22)If he has thats huddersfield stayin in league oneBrown has already failed at a another league one club, dean hoyle will not make the same mistake.Don't touch the man with a barge pole. A very average manager who talks out of his behind.Ye cos hoyle discusses his multi million pound business with his neighbours doesn't he. in fact fergie told me in sainsburys his starting eleven for next week....... its amazing just ask them and they'll tell you! muppet brown is an certain no for town job!Deanos neighbour collared brown as he got into his car and asked if he had got the job .phil winked and said watch sky on monday.make your own mind upDean Hoyle has been on holiday - back tomorrow so nobody apart from the board will know the latest newsFor the hudderfield town fans ,you,d better hope he dont sign ,brownies a buffoon ,idiot ,and many more things first of all he aint a manager {Ed013's Note - Simon Grayson is the new manager}


18 Feb 2012 21:08:20
chelsea fan want AVB to get sack and they want jose mourinho back(27)(11)What is the "fan" name ?Not being funny avb good manager seems a good bloke but end of day he not picking the side the players or anything at club same reason Jose went fact ! Proof being jan transfer sign a player and avb ask in a press cofrence what he thinks of him and avb says ( sorry I do not no this player I have not been watching him and do not wish to take him ) press says but genk say the transfer is done avb says news to me , that is a jokeAVB will be a managerial legend. Unfortunately for him (but hilariously for everyone else), Chelsea will never be a success again until Cole, Drogba, Lampard and Terry are gone.

Player power gone mad at the Bridge - no other manager has any hope coz all the players get semis on for Jose when he texts them


18 Feb 2012 20:27:48

18 Feb 2012 20:11:58
Martin Allen for AFC Bournemouth manager. Would bring in some good players, plyes good football and nwould do well with some money to spend in the summer.(2)(13)Why where is lee bradbury going toGood football?? If you like cheating and skyball i supposeNo No No.Martin Allen is trouble. He let us down at Reading when he was Pardew's number two and he gets the sack everywhere he goes in less than 18 months.

I share no love for Bournemouth but wouldn't wish him on you.Absolute rubbish


18 Feb 2012 19:58:23

18 Feb 2012 17:17:31
cardiff lost pompey lost does nt
get much better on a saturday
afternoon(15)(10)Rangers lost so your rightRangers loseIt's a shame Saints never lost, still with their form of late it's been fun to watch! Another season in the championship looking likely.Undefeated in the last 5 games? Pulled off draws against top of the table teams and we have the easiest last 14 games out of the top 6 with only 4 teams to play in the top ten, don't worry mr Pompey fan i know you are just jelious and we don't blame you but won't be long intill you will get punished by some fantastic footballI think poopey should worry more about the penalties the FL will impose than what anyone else in doing. Cheats do not prosper although buying the F A Cup did. Even Steve Claridge slagged you right off for being cheats. You have such a painful future.....The future is looking bright and blue.Brilliant rumour, well done.Pompey may have done wrong and run a bad ship but come on people, is there any need, do you all really have such sad lives that you get off on other clubs punishments! We have faced up to our mistakes, took the punishment and will come out of it a better club, thats why were STILL the BIGGEST team in Hampshire and always will be! PUPThere are no easy games that is why everyone wants your lot to come unstuck.look at your results against donnie b/c millwall cup game .

Neil warnock is leeds' new manager OFFICIAL(28)(3)God help youThis is a RUMOUR site not a FACT site


18 Feb 2012 11:42:41
portsmouth are searching for the canterbury again be the club's sporting goods, and jobsite will stay until 2025 according to sources close to the club.
Why jobsite remain until 2025 is because the sponsor has helped the club in the most proven difficult and now the reward(1)(20)Unbelievable? Unreadable!Yes thats because if we do go bust everyone will need help finding jobs!I was led to believe all p----y staff worked for freeJobsite is perfect for them, as half the players wont get picked up for other clubs...also, why do Pompey insist on feeling sorry for themselves? 3 subs? use youngsters, i swear no one has a brain at that club


18 Feb 2012 03:22:29
QPR are currently on a training course in Portugal, and so far the part of the squad that needs improving is Left Midfield. Although it appeared that after the arrival of Taiwo from Milan that Traore would make the switch to a winger it hasnt happened YET. A potential signing if QPR stay up could be Victor Moses from Wigan as his current club are in a worse position AND more of a relegation battle than the London based side.

Also IMO the GK needs addressing after some way below par performances of late.(3)(13)I think that with the GK situation they should look to sign Ranger's Allan McGregor because he's a good shot stopper and he'll be cheap with them in administration.Good reply don't think rangers could refuse a loan to perm deal


18 Feb 2012 00:46:18
Rangers administration: Craig Whyte sues BBC for defamation this wont come to anything because this man is pure liar he is just trying get sum good attenion for him self and the sfa should have gave whyte the proper an fit person check when he wanted to take over not now they are to late(10)(7)Why are you jumping on the bandwagon,nothing been proved yet,didnt see many people interested in buying your club.


18 Feb 2012 00:29:10
Looks like we've finally got Warnock (thank god)...exactly what we need at Elland Rd. He's been spotted and photographed in Monte Carlo with Captain Birdseye on Friday! See the Daily Mail if you need proof, YEP are also running the story tonight too! Great news for Leeds United.(9)(11)He has not taken the job yetGreat source,....

Its going to be ian holloway, terms have been agreed {Ed013's Note - I am not sure if Ken Bates would get away with poaching another Blackpool manager, especially when they are going so well. To the comment above, if Leeds get Warnock it would be very good business, but remember it was only a meeting and Warnock may not want the job}Its announced on the website - he's ours. First things first take Rachubka and Barndoor out back and ....


17 Feb 2012 23:20:08
After being spotted in Monaco with owner Ken Bates, Neil Warnock is hot favourite to become the next Leeds manager following Grayson's sacking on the 1st of February, Warnock is set to be unveiled by the board on Monday afternoon which means Neil Redfearn will most likely manage his last game as caretaker manager on saturday at home to Doncaster.(7)(5)Leeds have got warnock


17 Feb 2012 22:10:19
Port Vale are keen on signing LA Galay midfielder Dan Keat in the summer.(2)(7)


17 Feb 2012 22:07:50
Burnley are set to sign striker Daniel Cousin until the end of the season. Cousin was supposed to have signed for Rangers but a deal fell through because of the problems at the Scottish club.(12)(6)Mmmm this would make it 36 strikers we have then...........DOH


17 Feb 2012 22:04:57
Birmingham City are set to sign two strikers on pre contracts for moves in the summer.
American striker Conor Casey is set to sign a two and a half year deal from Colorado Rapids but will sign on the 1st of July.
Portsmouth striker Marko Futacs is also set to sign for Birmingham. The Hungarian attacker is set to sign on loan for a month and could be extended month by month until the end of the season. Pompey are keen on letting a number of players go out on loan so they can free up wage bills to pay off their debts.(6)(11)Connor casey is also being linked to stevenage, to join former rapids manager gary smith in hertfordshireBirmingham have caleb folan and Danny webber on trialAbsolute rubbish


17 Feb 2012 22:01:35
Victor Chandler to buy Nottingham Forest, with Rangers to be sold to Paul Murray (ex-director) and Portsmouth going to a consortium led by Guy Whittingham.(18)(17)Why would a bookie buy a football team? They would no longer be able to take bets on games in that division.

Even better they would have to cover forest's 6m a year loss. Double fail.The Forest one is right, but Ally McCoist himself could be interested in saving his club. He'd take over and appoint Steve Clarke (Chelsea Assistant) as manager.

Pompey will be bought by a local investor for 1.Wow, so all three have buyers like that. magic.


17 Feb 2012 22:00:50
Cardiff City are close to signing Plymouth youngster Luke Young on a pre contract agreement. Young is only 18 and has put a number of superb performances together in previous weeks for the struggling League 2 outift.(2)(5)In your dreams!

17 Feb 2012 15:04:04
Despite only three names being reported in the press, the Wolves board have actually interviewed nine candidates over the last three days at the Royal Garden Hotel in London, with some not-so-obvious names now being thrown into the hat.

A Wolves supporting member of staff on reception had the opportunity to speak to George Graham after an interview, and despite George's obviously guarded demeanour, got the impression that the Wolves job is a far from forgone conclusion and felt that George had impressed the Molineux board enough to have a good chance at being offered the role on a short-term basis, with a move to a Director of Football type position should the club retain their Premier League status.(7)(16)Why would george graham discuss things with a staff member,get real.How convenient,a wolves supporting receptionist indarkest london,just where the wolves board are holding their interviews,Nine candidates interviewed and the receptionist can only remember George Graham!Wolves fans... From what ive heard today i would not bank on getting a full time boss in.. Wolves have interviewed everyone they want to but are yet to decide wether to get someone in on a long contract or just something till end of season!Howard Wilkinson..nailed on till end of season..

17 Feb 2012 12:36:10
Brighton have confirmed the signing of two more Man City players (after David Rodriguez in January) They are Abdul Razak and Gai Assulin. Razak has signed a 93 day loan deal and Assulin a initial 1 month loan deal. I don't see either becoming permanent signings but in the short tearm hopefully another two shrewd peices of business from Mr Poyet.(5)(7)


17 Feb 2012 11:25:25
Steve Bruce lined up to take the Wolves job. He's currently the only candidate that makes Jez Moxey look slim!(20)(21)Despite the fact Curbishley has been interview too ? bored baggie's should not be allowed near the internet.Steve Bruce lined up to take the Wolves job.

Robert Earnshaw to Nottingham Forest on loan until the end of the season in return for Lewis McGugan on loan.(7)(22)If true this would be good business for Forest.Why would forest want earnshaw back? He left because he was past it. He can't even get in the cardiff squad these days.


17 Feb 2012 09:13:25

17 Feb 2012 05:40:06
QPR are looking at potential Goalkeeper signings for next season EVEN if they get relegated. Someone who could potentially be the replacement for Paddy Kenny could be Craig Gordon as he has fallen down the pecking order recently.

In MY opinion, it is Kenny's fault that QPR are so low in the table right now. He is a shadow the goalie he was last season and he has the 3rd worst saves to shots ratio in the premier league, being better than Paul Robinson and Petr Cech.(2)(10)How can you blame it all on the goalkeeper? If the defence had been better, the goalkeeper would have less to do! And, if the strikers would be better it wouldn't matter if you concede one or two goals!Gordon still recovering from injury,i think if we let him go it wont be qpr.Thjink Kenny is taking too much flack but the McGregor would be the obvious choice if we are to get another keeper


17 Feb 2012 00:20:32
Ed, heard anything about a tax/finance problem at Cardiff? Supposed to be more legal than a shortage of funds... {Ed001's Note - not recently I haven't.}(2)(13)
