20 Jul 2013 21:58:41
Oldham to sign Liverpool defender Stephen Sama on season long loan on Monday

Class signing for us if there is any truth in this, by all accounts real good strong defender who chips in with the odd goal as well

It's Tuesday and he hasn't signed.

Its Weds. I'll let you fill the next bit in.

It's thursday tomorrow



20 Jul 2013 21:48:52
Senegal legend Papa Bouba Diop, will join to Partizan Belgrade!



20 Jul 2013 20:48:36
Fleetwood s junior brown has emerged as a shock target for neighbours blackpool, to cover both wing back positions as well as ince and Phillips

He's got no chance in the championship

Brown is a great lower league player but not championship class.



20 Jul 2013 20:47:19
Blackpool have re opened contract talks with Gary Taylor fletcher, after he refused the last deal and tried to find another club, however, after realising no better deals are out there, mud has tried to get a contract at Blackpool

I don't know which one is more depressing.

NO players. OR. Getting GTF back.

He's on trial with Sheffield Wednesday, more made up rubbish on here.

Actually he left Shef Wed and is back with the Pool for talks. GTF is a great player for the Champs. May not be up to the Premier but certainly would love to see him back in a number 10 position.



20 Jul 2013 20:45:54
Aaron McLean and Cameron Stewart to be offered along with 1.2 million pounds for Matty Phillips, despite his broken arm.



20 Jul 2013 20:41:31
osman sow on trial at crystal palace


Quincy Owusu-Abeyie, Elliot Grandin and Atdhe Nuhiu



20 Jul 2013 20:28:41
Scott macdonald is signing for millwall in the next 48 hours after he left Middlesbrough today. Macdonald is taking a half pay cut to join the lions.

Hope so, but I'm not sure it will be that 'QUICK'? COYL

21 Jul 2013 10:02:28
Don't want to loose Scotty, gives 100% and will score goals!

21 Jul 2013 11:43:40
Pound for pound one of the worst signings in the history of middlesbrough football club, stole a living for three years

You're obviously forgetting Alves! If Mogger liked Scott he'd be staying irrespective of wages.
Bet he scores plenty at next club if played regularly

If you say he's one of the worst signings for middlesbro in the last three years, that doesn't say much for the rest of your players does it?

Mogga said last night is post match interview that nowt is confirmed wit McDonald

McDonald 'HAS' officially 'LEFT' Middlesbro! And is expected to have talks with Millwall ASAP! Sky Sports

There will be two players joining Boro in the next week. Former Bristol City defender Matthew Bates will return to the club and Eduardo Vargas will join on loan. The Stephen Ireland situation is a no-go if we need a cm for cover we will bring in Gary O'Neil on a free then drop Varga to the bench.

Hes going to come to the den 2 years deal

O'Neil definitely wouldn't be joining, signed a new deal with West Ham a few weeks back.

Thank god we've seen the back of him
couldn't score an open goal at the start
of the season we need a striker that can score weekly



20 Jul 2013 20:13:09
Denis Suarez to sign on a years loan from Man City this week.

Sign for who?



20 Jul 2013 19:45:22
John Joe O toole will be a Bristol Rovers player this week after being told by Joe Dunne that he is not in his plans for the forthcoming season! Been Told he might even be at the Fun day tomorrow!

Been trying to keep that a secret, thank you for ruining the surprise.

No sign at the Fun Day. Very unlikely to be coming.

John Ward looking at alternatives. Clock ticking.

Well he wasnt at the colchester fun day either so where has he gone?

JJ to be at a different club by the end of next week, that I can guarantee!



20 Jul 2013 19:13:31
Bradford City are interested in Cliftonville striker Liam Boyce.

Watche the game against celtic lennon said he was champions league material looks a real prospect only 22 36 goals last season

He's already playing in the Champions League! Deal set up for him to sign for Shrewsbury once the 2nd leg of the Celtic tie has been played. Graham Turner has been chasing him since January, fee was agreed then but Cliftonville wanted to keep him until the end of season. Shrewsbury & Cliftonville agreed to finalise deal after Celtic game.

Yep PP watched him in Ireland

Celtic reading millwall leeds hibs tracking this boy 36 goals last season



20 Jul 2013 18:48:23
Joe Garner set to join Bury fc on a 6 month loan, after falling out with Grayson

20 Jul 2013 21:13:10
no chance in hell that move will happen more likely cummins will join a league 2 side on loan

Sent off today against Fleetwood, harsh.

Kevin Blackwell did try to sign Garner in January but he chose Preston, Bury could be a likely destination if he has fallen out with Grayson.



20 Jul 2013 18:48:18
Kelle Roos, previously of PSV and NEC Nijmegen who was last on trial at Bristol City, will try out for Swindon Town as a back up to Wes Foderingham.



20 Jul 2013 18:29:12
Mick McCarthy has ended his pursuit of defenders Titus Bramble and Bongani Khumalo.

This comes after the signing of Christophe Berra was confirmed earlier.

This will open Ipswich up for either a late unexpected move for Stearman (unlikely) or the loan deal of Manchester United centre-back Scott Wootton.

So that's why Bramble played during the second half against Barnet today, makes sence to play someone you not interested in??

Look on twtd mick has stated he won't be signing bramble! just doing him afavour by letting him train and play.

Omg did you actually go to any of the games since last November! Mick knows what he is doing and is building from the back top 6 finish all day long.

LOL Mick has never built from the back, you have just signed the worst defender I have ever seen in a Wolves shirt, the slowest undedicated arrogant player ever to step foot on the pitch at Molineux.
Good luck with Berra and McCarthy you will need it in a few years time :)

Sour grapes me thinks from a disgruntled relegated wolves supporter up the town

Lol you sound like a very bitter and jealous wolves fan enjoy league one!

Don't believe Berra is worse than the roger the king of relegation Johnson and if you still had mm you wouldn't be in div 1 now ha ha ha ha sour grapes or what

Sounds like sour grapes to me mate.

Rather than worry about town, I'd channel your energy into helping that team of yours not get relegated again

Definitely sour grapes

LOL, believe me after seeing 60m wasted by McCarthy it is not sour grapes, he's great at getting teams promoted then ruins the club from ground roots upwards.
in KJ we trust, you will all agree in about 3/4 years time, mind you I doubt IT have 60m to waste if you sign players like Berra.



20 Jul 2013 18:04:05
Bristol Rovers have moved quickly to replace the injured Ryan Brunt by signing Jamie White from Salisbury.

Rovers may also bring in Tom Hitchcock if they can agree loan terms with QPR.



20 Jul 2013 18:01:18
Stevenage have got defender jack deaman (Birmingham) and midfielder Gerardo bruna (blackpool) on trial. bruna came on in the second half today in the boros 2-0 defeat towatford

Neither getting enough minutes on the pitch to really impress

The best thing about Bruna was his hair ;)

I honestly think if Bruna had been given a chance in the first team that he could've developed into a star for us. Paul ince made the wrong call by releasing him, we need creative midfielders like him

Deamon also came on for about 15 minutes during that game didn't get a touch though :/



20 Jul 2013 18:19:59
Sean Dyche is making a £700,000 bid to bring Neil Danns to Burnley with the money from Charlie Austins sale to QPR

Who says austins going qpr?

Sean Dyche is making a £700,000 bid to bring Neil Danns to Burnley with the money from Charlie Austins sale to QPR

20 Jul 2013 20:37:49
Laughable - Burnley will barely make a profit on Austin and they would not pay that much for mediocre Danns.

Doubt it-Arfield has already signed, Jones will sign and there's Hewitt and Howieson coming through the youth ranks.

More likely to sign a season long loan from a PL club than fork out 700k for Danns.

It was supposedly reported by the Daily mail, could be true. most likely not.

You can't afford his wages, he would have to agree to a pay cut

20 Jul 2013 23:15:03
Just a thought but why would Charlie Austin manage to pass medical at qpr when he failed last week at hull city? Harry redknapp likes a gamble but I, m afraid Charlie has been injury prone and might never make the potential leap to the premiership.

20 Jul 2013 23:20:57
Apparently qpr need someone to keep their physios occupied now that AJ is "fit"

Ba failed one at stoke an look what he did at newcasle

If having some injuries makes you injury prone and untouchable, then how on earth did Kieran dyer, Michael Owen and johnathon wood gate ever get signed? Some people are more liable for injuries but if he scores 28 goals in a season then he can't be that injury prone.



20 Jul 2013 18:12:41
Christophe Berra signs for Ipswich Town, the Blue Tractor just keeps rolling on.

20 Jul 2013 21:35:24
Fantastic - mid table obscurity beckons



20 Jul 2013 16:51:25
Ipswich will sign:
- Christophe Berra-free
- Robbie Brady-Man U-Loan ( if this deal isn't possible then McCarthy will make a move for hulls Cameron Stuart)
-Gary Doherty-minimal fee
-Conor Henderson-free
They will all sign before the start of the season and this will conclude micks summer transfer business

Also Michael Chopra set to join An unknown Dutch side.

Hull signed Robbie Brady permanently

Robbin Brady?! pretty sure you won't seen as though he's contracted to Hull. Pure rubbish

Doubt they will loan Brady from man united as he signed for Hull in Jan

Brady signed permanently for Hull in January, if you are going to make up rumours at least get the basic facts correct.

How will ipswich buy robbie Brady when he's a hull player?

I don't think you will sign Robbie Brady from Man. Utd. Hull city paid 3m for him and he is one of the best players at the club and certainly wouldn't go to or be allowed to go to Ipswich

As of last January Brady is a hull city player and won't be going anywhere.

Gary Doherty? ha don't make me laugh. Robbie Brady, yeah good one.



20 Jul 2013 16:33:27
Kieran Trippier off to Palace for 3m Big loss if he leaves. Worth more I think

Quality player when we had him on loan
at Barnsley. The prices that are being
paid for players not as good I would say
5/6 mill at least

No more outgoings at Burnley after Austin until January at the earliest, Tripps is a key player and £3m for arguably the best RB in the division seems a tad low. DAZ

20 Jul 2013 20:40:09
The Burnley fans will riot if Trippier is sold as well as Austin - I think Tripps will be at Burnley for one more season.

Burnley produce amasing young players, jay Rodriguez, Charlie austin and Kieron tripper. {Ed003's Note - you produced jay rod out of them 3 }

Since when did Burnley produce Charlie Austin.

He came through Reading's Academy and came to you via Swindon where he scored 31 goals in 54 appearances.



20 Jul 2013 16:32:50
Stoke looking to sign agreed international Panagitotis Kone from Bologna as a CAM and Etherington replacement for about £5 million

Good business for us :)

Do you mean Greek international?

Scored a good goal last season as well!

What's a CAM?

CAM = central attacking midfielder

I haven't heard anything about this? I doubt there's any truth in it. Anyway he can't be a replacement for Etherington cause he's a Left winger, not a centre mid

Hmmm pretty average player, with a lack of pace, hope we are looking at better than this to be honest



20 Jul 2013 15:58:26
John Joe O'toole to leave Colchester Utd next week.

Looks like this could be true-has only played a very minor role in pre-season games!



20 Jul 2013 15:56:27
Neil Lennon has dismissed links of celtic planning a move for Sunderland's James McLean, happy with this because with his backround he'd just bring ad publicity to celtic.

I heard that mike tomlin may be joing the celtic backroom staff



20 Jul 2013 15:52:30
Scott MacDonald has agreed a pay off to end his contract at Boro which will allow him to link up with Nicky Bailey. Boro to complete the permanent transfer of portugese attacking midfielder Vitor Silva. Loan deals for Eduardo Vargas and Borja Gonzales to be completed this week. Luke James to sign from Hartlepool then loaned back to them for the season. Boro to also sign a centre back before transfer window closes. A deal for Stephen Ireland has been agreed in principle, dependant on whether Forest return with an improved bid for Grant Leadbitter, £3m is believed to be what the club want.

£1m for luke james should do it but after that display today he could probably do better than boro

If only it was true!

Nar mate your right about macdonald leaving but nobody coming in read the gazette!

The club don't want 3mill, Mowbray has already stated the leadbitter is not for sale

Albert Adomah on way to middlesbrough with billy sharp not far behind him, all we need now is a defender would like to see the the jeans brothers also join on a season long loan looking forward to Leicester UTB!

Nah, we'll get him for about 400k plus add ons. Deals already set up for two other Boro youth, believed to be Bryn Morris and Jordan Jones.

Never say never! Just Maybe?

Disappointed if McDonald is leaving on a free. Decent striker and I've not seen the club linked to much better.

Re: Hartlepool fan = your keepers unreal btw n coops knows us inside out so well managed by him n cracking "pre-season" result for yaz :-). Also that's only half the quality Boro have by the time season starts (fingers crossed) n yous will be middlesbroughs stepping stone developing our players next season ;-) n also good luck in getting promoted this season. I like to see pools do well it's the 2nd result I look for n we have some really exciting youngsters that will be playing for yaz this season n yaz WILL go up! Again good luck :-)

21 Jul 2013 10:04:27
Would rather have grant than Stephen Ireland!

Boro in similar circumstances to pools with a pkayer on high wages they can't offload and can't afford new players till he goes

22 Jul 2013 11:22:45
This original rumour seems to have a lot of substance.



20 Jul 2013 15:50:57
Burnley right back Kieran tripper going to crystal palace for 2. 75 million.

Not played in today's friendly so could be something in it.

Heck of a lot of money though for a fullback with no premier league experience- even if he was in the divisional team of the season!

Really hope not as Trippier is one of the best young players ever to play for burnley 5 million would be my personal valuaton however 2. 75 million for a full back unproven at the top level is decent just shows the potential he has

Surely Holloway isn't that stupid to pay that. Joel Ward was one of the best full backs in the league last season and I rate him very highly. Being a Swansea fan, I would be more than happy to take Joel Ward here as a replacement for Rangel in a year or two's time although I really do like Jazz Richards.

Supposedly just a slight injury that kept him out of today's win vs Carlisle.



20 Jul 2013 15:21:50
Scott McDonald has left middlesbrough after the club and player have came to an agreement n McDonald is now expected to travel to millwall as a free agent

It's possible, we'll wait & see what happens? SL might work his 'MAGIC'!



20 Jul 2013 14:54:06
Ricardo Fuller is set to sign for Portsmouth along Franck Songo'o, Two-Year Deals

Have a great season Pompy, from Notts County fan.

Rubbish rumour, Ryan Bird is the 5th striker and the only other two likely to sign are Rocha and an as yet unnamed midfielder with League 1 experience

I would love this to happen but sorry you've just made this up no chance at all

Yeah let's just link every former player to the club pearce o'neil taylor fuller songo and probably many more

No way to much wage

Ryan Bird has signed today



20 Jul 2013 14:46:49
reading have come in for kevin doyle in a 2.5 million pound bid

This is not true and you know it. Even if it was it would be for free.

{Ed029's Note - Doyle isn't worth £2.5m. I'm not sure he'd be good enough for a promotion chasing Championship side any more either. Hard worker, but not been the same since he went to Wolves.

Next joke.

£2.5m?! Pmsl, he's available for less than £1m!

Doubt it and hope not.

2.5mil for a league 1 player? no chance. I would bring him home for 1. 25mil max.

20 Jul 2013 14:46:49
reading have come in for kevin doyle in a 2.5 million pound bid

If there was any truth in this at all to say if be disappointed would be an understatement! Kevin Doyle for all his legendary status at reading should not be allowed back, since he left us to say he has flopped is pretty accurate. he has certainly lost his scoring boots. Plus we are supposed to be going forward not back, this would have a huge smack of desperation

At least try to come up with something better than that. Yes Doyle had his best days at reading but those are long gone, we have moved on and don't want him back.



20 Jul 2013 14:35:56
Brighton to sign 3 sporting gijon player

Who would that be?

The left back looked very good, not sure about any others

21 Jul 2013 19:11:57
Brighton boss Garcia wants four to five new players before the start of the season.

The Argus say that Oscar Garcia wants to bring in 5 or 6 good players to Albion before the transfer window ends and on the club website it says that Brighton want to sign at least 2 players by the end of this week.



20 Jul 2013 14:05:37
warren feeney to join salisbury city as player assistant manager



20 Jul 2013 14:02:14
QPR favourites to land Burnley striker Charlie Austin for a cut-price £1. 75 million deal with add-ons if the Hoops win promotion.

1. 75 million bit of a drop from 4.5 mil hull offered surley even our board would not accept such an insulting offer (maybe a swap deal for remy may be closer mark)

Like burnley would accept 1. 75 m for a 28 goal machine! Get real

Not even worth considering

20 Jul 2013 17:56:10
Seems like a really strange deal for Burnley to accept, why would they sell at that price with very little profit on what they bought him for, he is knocking in the goals so therefore why sell. If the price as was from Hull was above 4 mill then it would have made sense, but any cut price deals just mean they have to spend it all looking for a replacement. There is no sense to this deal what so ever.

QPRhave no chance of getting him cheaply after the extausionate amounts they've being paying recently

20 Jul 2013 21:13:26
Two clubs in for Austin both QPR and Forest, with Forest offering more than QPR

Don't worry qpr won't get promotion



20 Jul 2013 13:51:40
Burnley have agreed a season long loan deal with Leicester City for midfielder Neil Danns.

No he aint

22Jul 2013 13:51:40
Burnley have agreed a season long loan deal with Leicester City for midfielder Neil Danns.



20 Jul 2013 13:46:26
Middlesbroughs Scott McDonald looks like he's heading for the exit. This will free up some space in wages which will help towards a fee for Albert Adomah. Strikers are on their way to replace him but only loan deals are being touted at present.



20 Jul 2013 13:46:13
Derby interested in bringing in defender Terence Kongolo on a season long loan from Feyenoord.



20 Jul 2013 12:56:51
Middlesbrough in 60 million takeover bid but club denies this rumour, Yet according to a club official something big happened at the club yesterday but he wouldn't say what!

Feel sorry for the guy who pays 60 mil wouldn't pay £60 lol

The day marvin emnes scores a hat-trick will be when we have a 60 million takeover

Only because you don't have £60 ;-)

Walsall cup game 11-12 season marvin emnea hat trick

We didn't get taken over in 2011 then did we lol



20 Jul 2013 11:26:36
Former Wolves player Berra, winger Doherty and South African centre back Khumalo are set to be announced as new signings for Ipswich on Monday.

I don't think Khumalo is going to sign seeing as he wasn't with the squad that won against Barnet today.

Not all going to happen as Khumalo no longer joining on loan as Bera has joined and we have enough cover

Berra signs 2year contract. McCarthy no longer interested in signing Khumalo

Best of luck with Berra, MM knows how to get the best out of him.

23 Jul 2013 15:14:20
Doherty is a right back



20 Jul 2013 13:04:41
Barnsley & Blackpool have been in contact with Hull City about the possibility of signing out of favour striker aaron Mclean, Hull manager Steve Bruce said if a deal could be reach with either club Mclean could leave.

Barnsley reportedly offered 400000 pound for mclean

You could get mcclean for free as hull prepared to rip up his contract

Have heard he is willing to sell if something can be reached with either club, but I'd put a pound on him not coming to oakwell

2 quid on not coming to Blackpool ( unless he is willing to play for 2 quid )



20 Jul 2013 12:35:10
Burnley set to land Sam Baldock and Albert Adomah from Bristol City once Charlie Austin to QPR transfer is complete.

20 Jul 2013 14:06:46
Burnley only getting £1. 75 million for Austin so doubt whether they can afford even one of Baldock or Adomah - never mind both.

Possibly Baldock but not Adomah, he's off to join horseface at Wigan

I might be wrong but I really can't see Harry being interested in Charlie Austin. QPR would not spend on a striker who's knee could give out at any time and then be injured for a season. Give Harry more credit than that

I fail to understand why bristol fans think that only a ridiulous offer would see two players who let's not forget have already been relegated at this level maybe before they are worth 2 mil they may need to prove that they are considerably better than an awful rock bottom side

What ever you think about our bottom of the table side, you still need to pay up if you want them, you got no money and we have, so maybe you should look elsewhere

Burnley has no money but bristol city has money :s well that would be very strange if that was the case because in the past 10 years burnley have finished higher than city every season!not to mention the money from going up to the premiership, and money made from player sales, and last season you sent down to L1 so how on earth do bristol city have more money than burnley!

It is simple we are lucky enough to have an owner/major shareholder who is wealthy so we are in the position of not being forced into a firesale because of relegation.

We've also spent money, probably more than Burnley (apart from during their stint in the Premier League), we've just done it unwisely.

We only sell for the correct offer, we have no need to sale, having one of the richest owners in England.

I am pretty sure Adamoah is off to Wigan, so how much Burnley can spend is irrelivent.

I am sure if Baldock is going to move the fee they get for selling Austin will give them enough money to reinvest in him. The fact he still has two years on his deal and we have a little financial worry meens if you want him you will have to pay for him. I would fully expect a million quid for Sam.

There is no reason to lose money on him. The lad would have to force the point if he is not happy, and although I'm sure he is not thrilled he has signed his contract so has to wait for the club to agree to let him go. assuming he even wants to go.



20 Jul 2013 11:18:38
Striker Theo Robinson of Derby county is looking to agree terms with the MKDons.

Probably not true but would like to see this happen.

Scored a hat trick against Buxton today.



20 Jul 2013 11:14:43
BWFC sources say Bolton have an agreement to loan Spearing until the end of the season with a view to signing as a free agent when his contract expires. The club and Spearing have a gentleman's agreement to sign on deadline day on the basis a premier league club do not make an offer.

Hope this is true spearing was my player of the season last year and would love to see him at the mighty Bok this season, we need some extra umph in the centre mid area



20 Jul 2013 12:14:08
Been told off a reliable source adam rooney to sign for oldham athletic and is said to be announced today before their friendly with Macclesfield

Would be a very good signing. Seasons looking better than last and LJ and signed some really good, young, hungry players. KTF

Oh my goodness, if only this rumour would turn out to be true. Fingers, knees and eyes crossed!

Games been and gone no announcements. Garbage again as usual

Didn't get announced today but LJ says he's confident he will

Must be signing Rooney or why would he be playing him in pre-season rather than players who are vying for selection for the opening game of the season.

He's not impressed so far.



20 Jul 2013 12:11:04
martin jol thinking of taking nick powell of Manchester United no loan

No loan? What would the fee be then?



20 Jul 2013 12:10:54
Cardiff and Fulham are weighing up moves for Spartak Moscow's Aiden McGeady.

Ipswich town to announce christophe berra as ipswich player on monday



20 Jul 2013 10:07:39
Lille winger Florian Thauvin is a transfer target for Southampton and Arsenal with Lille wanting £5m upfront with add- ons. Thauvin impressed while on loan with SC Bastia last season.

Would love this to happen, he's always been a class player and would also be a great addition to our squad but then again we are facing the likes of Arsenal and apparent interest from Chelsea.


Think this would be great for Southampton



20 Jul 2013 10:02:25
Kemy Agustien to join brighton from swansea

Sadly Bridcutt going the other way in a player plus cash deal, thought to be 2 Million.

Source: Seagulls website - Bridcutt removed from player profiles earlier today.

Sounds like a good player

Bridcutt still has a player profile and there is no article on the website, so bit wrong.

Just looked on the website, bidcutts profile is still there. must have been a technical. think he will stay for another year at least :)

Kent is a great midfielder, he's got power and composure! He just isn't quite prem quality and always injured

Bridcutt No 26 midfielder profile still there

That's why Bridcutt also played in the friendly tonight, so he could get an injury just in time for this transfer. What a load of rubbish again.

No he's still on there but it wouldn't surprise me if that did happen

20 Jul 2013 23:39:55
IF Bridcutt was going the other way, and we bothered to remove his profile from our club website

THIS one you mean?!) Then he ALSO would not have played this evening in Spain would he?! Don't post rubbish person! As for Agustein, Andy Naylor from The Argus tweeted earlier, that there is a high chance of us signing him, and he NEVER posts anything like that, unless there is a big chance of it happening.

An in form Augustien is difficult for any opposition to deal with at any level. If he comes to you, I hope he finds some consistent form and if he does, he'll be a true asset to your team.

Good luck to him wherever he may end up, will be sad to see him go!

He is a really good player! (Swansea Fan)

Very good player but too prone to injury unfortunately

Swansea are letting Kemy go because Swansea have too many midfielders and he's not in Laudrup's plans. So why would Bridcutt be going the opposite way to Swansea. Plus, his porifle is on the website, and a picture was posted of him today at the training camp in Spain.

Augustien has gone to the Brighton camp in Spain to talk with the manager. The deal looks to be certain.

21 Jul 2013 22:34:10
Up there with the best swansea got I don't know why we got all these midfielders in

To cope with the added pressure of European football. Laudrup likes a good selection of midfielders as he knows that it is the position in which swansea can really hurt other teams. I think we have enough midfielders now. Would like a pacey striker now that can also operate on the wing. Hope they give rory Donnelly his chance this season. Also just read that we are in for a Mexico international defender from espanyol.

22 Jul 2013 23:29:16
Shouldn't sell kemy class player

Kemy is technically an outstanding player, passing second to none. However, loves a night out and no doubt will enjoy him self in Brighton if he does leave haha (Swansea Fan). Injury prone?



20 Jul 2013 09:02:02
Huddersfield Town are set to Swindon Town striker James Collins

Thank god for that thought it said we were signing Joan Collins

Why would town want a league 1 striker when daniel carr is performing well and we already have 3 other strikers?

This is TRUE I saw this too, he's still young and quite impressive 18 goals.

Fee of £400k, Swindon set to replace him for nothing with recently released Simon Church. Great piece of business by Swindon if it all works out.

Hope not he is no better than Jimmy Spencer.

Joan Collins would be a great signing, scores for fun from what I have heard.

I think this could be a good capture for Town if we manage to wrap a deal up. Collins is known for scoring lots of goals at League 1 level, and personally, I think he has the potential to be a star in the next few years. COME ON TOWN, SIGN THIS MAN UP!If we do, I think he could be a big hit for Town next season.

Signing Church to replace your top scorer isn't good business at all considering how dire Church is. Though he may well prove himself in league 1, and is free so can't do much harm

I'd rather sign Joan Collins than Simon Church.

Top goal scorer out of a team where there was no outstanding goal scorer! Most of his goals came in two games. If they get £400k for him and then Church on a free who will probably by ok at their level it will be good business for them.

Most of his 18 goals came in 2 games? Sound like a bitter Swindon fan to me! Church is utter pants btw, the boy failed badly when he got the chance to shine last season, he certainly wasn't the player Reading rated so highly anyway!

Sky saying Hibs have offered 200K.

Apparently Hibs have had a 200k bid accepted for him. If he's going at that price, what are Town doing to pass up a player who can only improve on the cheap

Spelling poor on sky Huddersfield was spelt Hibernian

No fee from Huddersfield only Hibernian

He's going hibbs for 200k

Tv Sports say he's on his way to Hibs for 200k

Change o mind Birmingham

Will be anounced a Hibs Player tomorrow.

A bid accepted is very different from a player actually moving to a club. He could easily just say 'no, I want to stay in England' and wait for another offer

Apparently Hibs offer 3k a week less than what he's on at Swindon. Seems likely he'll start the season at Swindon.

Has been promised first team regular at hibs

I think there are problems with his wage demands at Hibs. Swindon were paying stupid money a year ago.

Colchester set to sign free agent Ryan Dickson after impressing last night against Spurs!

He put in a good performance against Spurs, would like to see him play a bit more yet but definitely a potential solution for our shortage of LB's.

Shawn wright Phillips on his way to huddersfield as he is not wanted at qpr

I would prefer other options on lower wages

Doubt it very much, Ward, Scannell, Hammill and Wright Phillips?

Dont't want him, he's lazy off the ball but could do well in the championship!

His salary will cover about half our squad, have you not heard of the fair play rules. Think about it before posting stuff that simply can't happen.

SWP is on £60k aweek and isn't going to go anywhere until the Qpr contract is up. He's not the type of player who'd take a pay cut in order to play as has been proven throughout his playing days. Shame because I don't know a single Qpr fan who wants him at loftus rd any longer than he has to be

Dream on huddersfield fans

Wouldn't pay SWP 60 notes a week, garbage

As a norwich fan in the prem I have seen you play four times and you were at your best when wright-Phillips is on the pitch. I'm sorry but if you don't sort it out you will do a wolves

Pawel abbott on his way bk to huddersfied on a parment

Why on earth would we want him back when we're signing Collins to complete our strikers anyway

Les Ferdinand to be unvield as New Swindon Manager. The current Spurs coach will be reacquainted with several Spurs players who have either joined swindon on loan or signed permanent deals in the last few weeks. This will be confirmed by Monday at the latest. Les will be joined by Spurs prospect Ryan Mason who will sign a loan deal in the coming days. John Eustace is likely to spurn Swindons attempts to sign him and pen a deal with Derby. Finally John Obika is considering joining his Spurs team mates at Swindon who have recently built strong links with the London Club. although Charlton may well be his preferred destination.

Cooper will be new Swindon boss it's the cheap option for the new board : (

If obika is going anywhere it will be charlton. I hope he comes, the fans love him and he has great potential. Up the addicks 😛

Seems that Tisdale has spoken to the club a couple of times this week, has a lot more experience than LF and other than the one season of relegation has performed well overall at the two clubs he has served.

All of this is correct EXCEPT. It will NOT be Les Ferdinand. Paul Tisdale is at this moment finalising all of the details with the Swindon board. This meeting is taking place right now.

20 Jul 2013 17:19:33
Cooper will never manage Swindon, I know this for a fact, friend works with commercial team at the town, and has reliably info'd me that Ferdinand is the new Boss. that's why Swindon Advertiser columnist Sam Morshead has been told they are not welcome on pre-season trip to Portugal. they wish the New Manager to meet the Squad first and have a week training and bonding without all the Media hype.

You might want a word with your friend! Paul Tisdale will be announced as the new Manager.

STFC - don't want Tisdale or Cooper for Manager. L2 here we come

Paul Hartley is a done deal

Hartley to be announced in this evening. Bringing a couple of Alloa players with him TBC but was signed earlier this morning after much deliberation by the board. Tisdale came a close second.

That's a load of old rubbish. this evening, well it is this evening and guess what, Yep. nothing just you predicted. Oh that's right you said they would release the new managers Name. Oooops, must have just been a rumour. lol

West Brom in talks about the possible signing of John Guidetti on a season long loan

I'd love this to be true. Even better if it was a permanent deal. Seems to make sense with Man City bolstering their attack. Please please be true.

I take it you want him

Best gamble on the market, needs a break through season in english football. where else best than the Albion. worked for the beast. I reckon its in the pipeline



20 Jul 2013 01:00:22
Man City are looking to spend even more this transfer window and are looking at some defence and midfield options, some of the names are Pepe, Marco Reus and Eduardo Salvio.



19 Jul 2013 22:28:59
Bristol city
Harewood free
Dunne 300k
Roos free
M. Woods free
A right winger or Gestede loan
Kilkenny 100k
Adomah 1.5m
Davies 650k
Amadi holloway loan
Pearson 1 month loan to aberdeen

Why would you get 650 for Davies when your quoting millwall 500. Millwall reluctant to pay and offering 400

There's no chance we will sell davis for 600k he's our top goal scorer and he spent half the season on the bench he's got two years left on his contract so you'll have to bid a lot more than that

20 Jul 2013 20:25:30
Bristol City cannot even afford the the £150,000 for Marlon Pack, must have some serious financial woes/

No gashead, steve lansdown is a rich chairman and we could afford marlon pack, we just have too many cm's.

Why does everyone think we have no money out chairman is loaded and will fund a signing if sod is certain it will benifit the team

Martin woods was let go after his trial. No contract offer was made.

Millwall only want to sign Davies because they have seen him score a header from 40 yards.



19 Jul 2013 22:12:25
Bradford City are set to sign Georgios Efrem.

Really hope so from the video I have just seen, looks a very strong player

Hopeful! Looks better than a League 1 player. Getting Yeates was nice. can lightening strike twice?!

Too good to be true!

PP wasn't in northern ierland



19 Jul 2013 22:05:31
Juvel Tsoumou has agreed a one year deal at Blackpool!

20 Jul 2013 11:43:49
ha ha that's a good joke



20 Jul 2013 01:00:28
John joe o'toole will sign for bristol rovers on Tuesday after being told he is not in Colchester Uinted's future plans, it is believed to be a very minimal fee.

I don't think so if he was coming he would have come by now to be involved in the per season build up. If he moves anywhere it will be Southend

There maybe a little surprise in the bristol rovers funday tomorrow, but that is all I am saying.



19 Jul 2013 21:49:22
Lawson D'Ath will join Swindon on a season long loan. The goalscoring midfielder will be an important player for Cooper's side.

Simon Church offered a contract at Swindon with COllins leaving for Huddersfield today, direct replacement.

Just what we need another midget in the team : (

Goalscoring midfielder, Who is that for then as he has only scored 3 goals in league football, His stats say Yeovil 1 goal in 14 games, Cheltenham 1 goal in 2 games & Exeter 1 goal in 8 games.

Not going to happen, he's heading to Chesterfield next week.

Not happening, Ryan Mason is about to sign a loan move to Swindon. That will take Swindons loan players to the allowed limit.
