Swansea City set to permanantly sign Gylfi Sigurdsson next week, the transfer fee is set to be £7 million with add-ons up to £8.5 million.(7)(25)Alll the people who have clicked the unbelievable button havent seen the evening post ;)I dont understand how he hasn't gained any value since reading sold him to hoffenheim. he went for 7.5 rising then so i cant believe that they will want to sell for the same amount seeing as reading have a sell on clause too.... delusionalLove it how all other fans are jelous that a player like gilfy actually will pick the swans over bigger teams anwser swansea is a grat club to play for best fans grat manager and might i add we have got the best pitch in all four divisions that helps.Swans have signed him, will be announced next week.

Doncaster are to sign Damien Reeves (Altrincham), Ramon Nunez (free agent), Brian Howard (free agent), Stuart Beavon (Wycombe), Fabien Robert (loan) and Paul Huntington (Yeovil) £250,000!(9)(8)Huntington out of contract and not worth that but w will happily take it :)
DevonGreenFor the fiftieth and last time. Ramon. Nunez. Is. Not. A. Free. Agent. Now stump up or shut up.Nunez is not a free agent {Ed013's Note - He isn't, but due to his big contract at Leeds they may be forced to let him leave for free}Huntington is never signing for doncaster, they will be relegated this year and will be back to the conference before too long.We've got more chance of winning the champions league than getting relegated to the conference and a true fact is that was the first time Doncaster got relegated in 12seasons so shut it!Rovers fan here, this could happen but thing is his workrate is dreadful

Reading can afford the bigger wages now. As a result of promotion Jason Roberts will be on £35,000 a week as of the new football year on July 1st.

Also Adam Le Fondre is going no where.
Takeover will be done 'imminently' according to the PL.

They will also sign Marriappa.(5)(27)You know nothing about reading, just because we have more money (or will have soon) doesn't mean we will be paying stupid wages, that's not how we do things.Rubbish apart from le fondre thingReading aren't signing MarriapaAs a Reading fan I'd take CMS, he's not had the best season but he's quick and can finish, would be a great signing along side Jason Roberts. He works his socks off every game!As a Norwich fan I am so pleased we did not complete the transfer of CMS, I stated months ago when Norwich were rumoured to be going back for him that he has a very poor first touch and he may be able to finish but you have to control the ball first, it was no surprise to me that he did not do well in championship, and I suspect if you sign him for premier league football he will barely get a game, because despite his 110% energy he just does not appear to have the technical ability to compete at the highest level.35 k is chicken feed he will more likely be on 50 k at least with the rest of the first teamTBH CMS is essentially a Hunt type of player with a lot more pace, he hasn't really had a strong frontman to hold up the ball for him to do his thing at Brighton, depends how much we'd be paying for him, if its not too much due to this years record worth a punt, if not then leave it not really worth the risk for a faster version of a player we currently have.

Nathan Redmond to Norwich!(6)(22) 

Reference this post and the one about Hooper-I think you are a little deluded to think such players would consider joining a club when their manager and star player are looking as if they are about to leave.
You will need to sort out those aspects before you can move forward again.No way...where are you getting these "Facts" from ?!?!?


19 May 2012 23:18:38
Swindon town are to sign Lee McCormick. He is due to be released from prison next month.(3)(7)Who?
you thinking of LUKE mccormick, ex-plymouth keeper?

Wolves look set to sell 3 strikers this summer.

Sam Vokes, Bournemouth, Tranmere, Crawley £500,000
Leigh Griffiths. Barnsley, Hibernian, St Mirren, £500,000
Steven Fletcher, Sunderland, Stoke £7m(9)(21)I believe Sunderland or Stoke will be the destination of Fletcher however I think Wolves will push them more towards the £12million markFletcher is maybe worth 12 million rupeses at a push. There is no way he is worth £12m. Stoke already have 5 strikers, are looking at bigger names (as are Sunderland) and not likely to break their transfer record on the likes of Fletcher, average at best, £5m - £6m is a more likely figure.Wolves got Griffiths for around £100k and he's never played. Can't see anyone forking out £500K then.Wolves want ten million for Fletcher , the reason is not that he is worth ten million it is just to put clubs off buying him.Griffiths - 500K
Fletcher - 12 Mill (auction just about to start)If fletcher is average why does everyone seem to want to sign him? And why would wolves sell him for a loss?Fletcher 5-6million, whats wrong with you? We bought him for 7million in the first place and look how much he has improved. The board have said he wont leave for under 10million and he is definitely worth at least 11million.Can't see Wolves selling Fletcher for less than they paid. Therefore bids will need to be north of £8m.Tranmere cannot afford vokes Nevermind bfh eitherWould stoke pay 12m for Fletcher when they paid 10m for crouch? doubt itWhere do you think St Mirren or Hibs have 500k? £500 maybe10clubs looking at him 8 in England 1in Russia n 1 in GermanyGriffiths 500,000 not a chance anyone would pay that let alone barnsleyFletcher has scored 12 goals and they say a million a goal for the average striker. Being a wolves fan I think he's worth 12millFletcher scored 12 goals in a team that finished bottom of the league so therefore for a mid table team like stoke or sunderland where more chances are likely to be created he will score plenty more and therefore would be worth the investment by anyone. Also Wolves wont take a loss on him so a bid of at least 8 million will be needed but once an auction starts that figure will most likely rise to around the 10-12 million pound mark

Chris Taylor on his way to Burnley according to one of his relatives.(4)(3) 



19 May 2012 23:08:22
To the Reading fan that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, you obviously have no faith in your manager. The deal will be finalised on Tuesday. Yes we did pay too much for him but he is signing as a squad player who will work his nuts off even if it is coming on for twenty mins! Brighton fans love him even though it wasn't his best season, for his work rate and endless running. Good luck in your one season in the prem. when u finish bottom the last laugh will be on you. Ps to your mate Aaron McLean plays in the championship for Hull! Sleep well!(1)(10)Blimey. this is a rumors site! if you want to moan, start writing a blog or something. Fair play there is always the possibility Reading will go down again next season BUT at least they made it to the PL, Brighton didn't even make the play offs!CMS couldn't hit a barn door if he was sitting on the handle. No thanks. We won't be signing him.GarbageYou paid £2m too much - no one in prem or realistically top half of championship needs him and £1m is top side of his real worth - you got hustled seagulls - welcome tho the big boys league!Mystic megs are out in force, nobody even knows what team we will put out yet let alone where we will finish.

Look up the word envious in the dictionary, you will find your names in the descriptionTbf cms to reading is plausible and brian mcdermott has been after him for around 2 seasons. We wanted him last season but were priced out by others and went back for him in January when TSI came in.See this is just jealousy down to the core. We will stay up and you will look like a fool for letting the green-eyed monster get to you.

Plus im not even against signing CMS, however if you think we will overpay like you did then you are sorely mistaken.To that brighton fan enjoy playing league 1 football again after you finish bottom with 5 pointsAs a Brighton fan I would be stunned If cms went to reading. I wouldnt call him a flop, as he still scored 11, but he is not prem standard. He just got way over hyped last summer. I for one am glad to see reading go up as they are a decent team with a good manager, and don't have the awful bug club syndrome of west sham or brum. I wish you lot the best of luck and hope that when we do play each other next, it'll be in the prem!I saw both the brighton-reading games and can only say he is woeful and not worth the petrol money...Bottom with five points!? I really hope you are not a reading fan as that pathetic and idiotic statement will make me loose respect for a club which I rather liked. However you are probably a palace fan as only they could be so deluded. By the way palace, the bookies think you are going to get relegated!I sent the post regarding CMS pending transfer from Reading to Brighton. Just for the record I'm not jealous of anything Reading have fact well done to them. If anybody was at both games this season then they will tell u that We (Brighton) were outclassed at Reading and then we battered Reading but never got the result at the Amex. Our time will come but maybe not for a few seasons! You will sign CMS this week and hopefully he will do u a good service. Unfortunately no man is bigger than the team and it was clear to see his way is not suited to Poyets style of play. All that said thanks for all the effort Craig and good luck. Reading...back your manager and stop slating genuine players with a good work ethic!@comment 3 above ^^ cheers man, gotta say as a royal who's lived close to brighton for over 10 years its a shame you didn't hit playoffs, carry on like you did the latter half of the season (excusing the wet sham game) then you are looking strong for promotion, for that reason too, hope we dont snatch CMS up hopefully he'll find his shooting boots next season, potentials there, and then we'll snatch up Sigurdarson or someone like that hopefully, but yeah same as you guys said back at ya, seagulls, remind me of us a decade ago, coming into a golden age, new stadium team on the up, great manager, some great players, a few finishing touches and you'll be a force to be reckoned with!

Charlton are rumoured to be looking at free agent alessandro del peiro recently released from juventus on a free transfer.(6)(34)When will Charlton fans stop putting daft,stupid and barmy rumours on here,so far in may there supposed to have signed 100 players by now - calm downNo they aren't.Oh please. Enough!!Why do charlton fans do this when they know that is never gonna happen.Chris Powell is looking at him - he got out his 2002 world cup Panini sticker album only last week i hearTHIS IS NOT A CAFC FAN SO STOP COMPLAINING! Any cafc fan with half a brain would realise that a football legend like del piero would go to the prem and not to a championship club even though we are amazing !Perhaps it's not Charlton fans, most of these posts seem to know little about Charlton.Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol. Why would a legend play for a tinpot side like charlton. hes just as likely to sign for the mighty chairboysIt's a joke, keep your knickers on lads!I know who started this rumour and he is a tubby city fan trying to make charlton fans look bad. We all know we won't get him"Charlton couldnt attract a tin can with a six foot magnet lol" Yeah and Jorge Costa never played there, Charlton made it up.

19 May 2012 22:20:40
Palace likely to sign Hume from PNE. Ipswich also interested.(7)(14)Hume had a bust up with the PNE manager a few months back and I can see him wanting to leave. But he's very injury prone and has spent most of this season on the physio bench.....not worth the effort and wouldnt make the step up as he's league 1 at very best.Hume is settled in preston no chanceWhat step up ipswich r league 1 team they cant keep fighting it come on downWhy do some fans keep saying that Ipswich will be in league 1 soon when we haven't been in that division in 50 odd years and we are the most consistent team in the championship? Some fans need to start worrying more about their own clubs.


19 May 2012 21:46:04
I've been told that Jay Rodriguez of Burnley will be signing for Everton, for a fee believed to be around 7-8 million, apparently it is almost a certain and done deal! :)(13)(28)I hope its true as i reckon jay rod would flourish under moyes . also him and jelavic would make a great strike force .jay rodriguez will always be a claret thoughCannot afford himHe is going to Everton but the fee is 6MDon't think so pal not for 6mill anyway ! I work with his cousin and his dad kiko and if we don't get a gud enough offer for him then jay will stay as he's claret n blue thru n thru . FACT . We rejected 5-6 mill from Southampton so he will deffo NOT go for anything less than 8 million so stop chatting out your rear ends !!Everton and Stoke are both skint mate!

Watford to sell Marriapa to Newcastle for 5.9m!(7)(24)Alan Pardrew said in January when he didn't get him that he will be looking elsewhere for targetsC'mon over-inflated fee!!Mapps is happy to stay at Watford & will only leave if he likes the club who bid for him. I doubt that the land of the Whining Geordies is high on his list of preferred places.Not gonna happen, watford accepted a 2.5 million pound bid in january , marriappas got 1 year left on his contract i can not seeing him going for more than 3 million, especially as there is reports that reading have agreed a 1.5 million pound fee! hopefully we can have adam le fondre!Not for that much more like 3-4 million to Newcastle

QPR looking to sign steven fletcher from wolves, although he doesn't want a move there... also city nearly agreed a deal with hazard, dzeko will be moving on(9)(19)Give us £10,000,000 and he is yours.Fletcher turned sunderland down supposibly so why would he go to qpr who have only scrapped staying up?


19 May 2012 19:30:53
To the person that said no thanks to Mckail Smith, yes we did pay too much for him. You obviously don't have faith in your manager...the deal will be announced Tuesday. He is being signed as a squad player that will run his nuts off even if it is for twenty mins. Brighton fans love him and yes it wasn't his greatest season but we applaud his hardworking ethics. Ps we don't know yet how much you are paying and yes we will probably lose on the deal but enjoy your season in the prem and when u finish bottom we will be waiting for u!(4)(7)But uh, He can't even cut it in the Championship, never mind the PL!
Face it, he is officially a flop.We may well finish bottom, but it will still be way above you!


19 May 2012 19:23:55
gary hooper to southampton monday, hints everywhere look at sky sports were in for him again and on our website were unveiling something monday good signing if my logic works out lol(29)(15)we are announcing jaidi is taking a coaching role otherwise a bigger deal would of been made about it.

Well we are in for hooper again will it come of this time? Who knows would be great signing but I just don't see it happening yetYou're buying a player that looks good in the SPL but my own opinion is that he's not good enough for the Premier.
Believe me, I've seen him play both in England and ScotlandUh Monday is a press conference about Jaidi retiring....?I would love it if this was true but i belive that the press confrence on monday is about radi jaihdi becoming a coach at the club not a signingJaidi retiring and the coaching role will have been organised months ago so can't see that on its own this requires a press conference. Hooper is certain looking for a move, even the Celtic supporters are thinking it will happen and Sky do seem to be indicating something is happening. Don't normally trust Sky but Celtic do leak information.Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!!!Yes, Celtic do leak information and Southampton are ambitious enough to bid for Celtic's top scoring striker. Yoyo club? Based on what?Surely a "yoyo" club would be a term used to describe a club that repeatedly oscillates between leagues? We had one bad patch of 5 years after one of the longest runs in top division football. Now we are back on the ascendency and in a better position than we have ever been. We have more ambition than Celtic, who will only every be champions of a sh1t league for their entire future as they never will have the finances to challenge europe. If Southampton get their plans in place they could easily be a top european team if things go their way and their academy gets going (which it will, it's one of the best in the world)He can't sign before the transfer window opens - doh!Why would he move to a team who is going to struggle next season when he'll be playing in the chamions league next year? silly little people!He's going to leeds hahah sorry i joke, it's just funny they think they can sign everyone!If the press conference on monday is a signing its more likely to be jay rod, now the playoffs have finished we can sign players from the championship"Celtic leak information? southampton are a small time club,with small time ambitions ie. yoyo club!!!"........ oh thats funny...No clue at all mateYes celtic do leak information, lennon talking to the press bout the hooper bid in last transfer window? actually saints have been been approved to increase capacity to 55k weve just spent 15mil on our training facilitys and our academy is now one of the best in the world, small time ambitions? lolIm pretty sure the transfer window is open?? {Ed025's Note - not yet..Hoopers got ambitions of playing for england and if he hasnt got near the squad yet he never will playing in scotlandWhen does the window open?? {Ed025's Note - 1st julyThe international transfer window opens on 1st july but ur able to sign from english clubs once play-offs have finishedIt's Monday and no announcements. Is someone's crystal ball playing up!


19 May 2012 19:16:09
Sightings of Michael Owen in Sheffield, both competing for his signature(4)(32)Why would owen go to 1 0f the Sheffield clubs. As already said won't drop down out of Premier league, I forget Sheffield are both "Big" clubs thoughDnt think so he has already said he wont be leaving the premSince Owen has said that he is not playing in Championship, Sheffield W is out of the question! - Sheffiel U still got a possibility to sign him :)Owls last home attendance was 38,082 with 469 away fans included (all full price tickets). Whats not big about that?What was the average attendance most of that 38k dint crawl from under their stones until the last game.MASSIVE...........I thought both of the massive clubs were battling it out for ronaldo and messi


19 May 2012 19:11:48
Any news on leeds united? {Ed025's Note - not yet mate..(0)(7)Ed someone told me that Joel ward and Paul Green should sign by tuesday? {Ed013's Note - Rumour, wait and see mate}Yeah wigan want snoddy but leeds want moses in exchange {Ed013's Note - Moses will not go to the Championship. He wants to play in Europa league or Champions league}


19 May 2012 18:57:22
Ian Holloway to be unveiled as Wolves new Director of Football this week. Deal signed and sealed last week. Was only dependant on today's result. And that fell into place nicely.(4)(38)RubbishHahhhI'm a wolves fan this is nonsense why would he want to be DOFI reckon holloways annoyed with oystons desire and ambition, he quoted this in skys play off final intervew. i still dont think he wil walk away from the best thing that ever happened to himStop posting utter garbage - Holloway is a football manager - end of.


19 May 2012 18:44:54
Who is the silly little boy with the green envy in his eyes, spitting out his dummy at the thoiught that Saints can't possibly be a big team? Not big on fan size - as that doesn't count - says he! Not big on playing good football? Back to back promotions would suggest we are not doing too bad. Maybe it's because we haven't played against the top flight in 7 years. Now I get you. What is your specialist subject? Stating the bleeding obvious or not accepting change? The Saints train is rolling and get used to it!(18)(15)Just watch it get derailedYou lot are completely delusional you do not have a large fan base.
You would be lucky to scrape into the premier league base on fan base alone.Derailed? Not a chance!6000 away to palace, 48000 went to wembley, higher average than a third of premiership sides whilst in championship. Sound like a poor fan base to you? Look it up.Our fan base has been struggling recently due to our downward plight but since our ascension to the premiership we have been nearing full capacity.

Premiership will bring full capacity, and you only have to look at rival neighbouring clubs and you will see that for premiership (and high quality football) Southampton have the largest catchment area for fans, we could essentially be the driving force for a quarter of the country as we are the main team in the South of England outside London.

Our championship attendance was higher than a large number of prem clubs, next year will be higher and will only be limited by the capacity of our stadium. With success it will only grow, and like I said most of the South of England outside London will see Southampton as their closest 'big' club if we can just get a few good seasons in the prem.Don't worry about replying Saints fans......we all know that they're just peeved that their little Clubs are going no-where and we've shown every fan and media member that thought we would struggle, heart, passion and a willingness to win!

From the top of the Club to the bottom its a great place to be.......BLISS!

Southampton realistic signings Joe Lewis Free, Nathan Clyne 3.5m, Nigle Reo-Cocker Free, Matty Phillips 3m, Matt Jarvis 4m, Micheal Owen Free and Tom Huddlestone 3.5m(23)(29)I don't think so. Maybe one out of this lot.Dont you read the papers, Lewis has signed for CardiffI'd be surprised if the saints get Clyne, got half of the prem chasing him.Jarvis £4 mill. Really? Another £2 mill and you might get Messi. #dreamerWolves have publicly stated they want 10 million for jarvis. That might be a little optimistic but we aint letting him go for 4.Nathan clyne 2 toon!!!Think you should look at the number of wingers available who are better than Jarvis. You will be lucky to get £5m.Wake upOwen is app keen on a move to stoke . we have crouch an he knows him well looks set to be a done deal ... prefer him go to southampton tho .. no form or fitness anymoreHaha if these are your realistic targets? what the hell are your unrealistic targets? lol

the 2011-12 campaign

Winger Lee Holmes has just been set
free from premier league inbound Southampton
and Swindon are most likely to sign the
25 year old, with other interest coming
coming from Bradford City, And Bristol
Former Barnsley Left back Jay Mc-
ceverly will be Paolo Di Canios second
summer signing after impressing on a
breif loan spell with the Robins. Jay has
just been set free from Championship
side Barnsley as he now lays out of
favour for them.(15)(2)Gutted we let Holmes go fantastic player he will be great at Swindon hope he stays fit!Good luck Di Canio, you're about to sign one of the worst defenders the Football League has ever seen! (Jay McEverely of course)Jay mac is not good enough for league football as 1 good day to 10 bad onesAgree McEverly was not that good last season, but Di Canio rates him so let him if he can do anything with himGood luck jay in your new adventure, im just glad its not with us!!

Connelly won't be joining Watford as he is in talks with Swindon. Sam Baldock is interesting The Hornets(7)(5)He's on holiday so he isn't talking to anyone, you whiny little Swindon fan.Baldock will go to Ipswich on loan, now the spammers are in the premierWhy would David Connelly sign for a league 1 club when he could go to a championship side?That's a relief then - Swindon are welcome to the greedy little git.Sam baldock is very keen on playing for watford as it is very close to hsi hometown aylesburyBaldock is suplus to requirements at West Ham now and WHU will be looking tooan him for the season. Could interest Ipswich, Watford and MK Dons

possible southampton ins

jay rod 7.5mil
ince 3m
michu 5m
antonio 1.5m
redman 6.5m
hooper 8m(16)(21)Where did all that money come from£90million from promotion.

Capacity sell outs in stadium next year.

Sale of Oxlade-Chamberlin.

That gets you up over £110million mark alone...

But I do share your scepticism that Saints will be prepared to spend that much, although I do like those signings we would need more defensive ones. Add in the 2 - 3 defensive signings we need and we are signing 9 players on that list... which isn't happening!Who on earth thinks Antonio could cut it in the Prem,if that's the sort of signing some think we should go for we might as well roll over and give it up now.He wasn't good enough when he was on loan before,put it to bed,the boy'd be pants against Premier teams.He's a League one player.You wont sign redmond hes top 6 team bpund, hooper? champions league next chance! ince woud be a good signing but he'll stay at blackpool for another season,Oh and make you dont get 90 million upfront its 40 when promoted and 12 million a year for 4 year.Haha no way will Southampton spend £30m plus this summer , not a chanceAntonio was quality for us thats why we tried to get him back, and the saints fans sung we want antonio in the friendly against reading!It says possible ins im sure other teams are after some of these players aswell, weve been linked with all the above but i dout wil get all of them, antonio wil be playing in the championship or the prem next year, saints obviously rate him both pardew and adkins have tried to bring him backAntonio was not good enough.Jay Rod going to saints! Defo.. Burley replacing him with Pugh from afc Bournemouth!!"you don't get £90million upfront"

Absolutely irrelevant mate unless you are planning on doing transfers with cash in hand! It's the credit that is coming in that gives us increased capital and thus increased funds to spend in the transfer market, through loans and other financial instruments etc.Ince - no chance when he leaves it will not be to a more established Prem disrespect but you may not survive next year... {Ed015's Note - So there's a chance then?}


19 May 2012 17:33:02
Baldock to either Charlton or Ipswich on loan.
Steven Fletcher to Arsenal(9)(20)Fletcher would be good signing,the guy is old fashioned striker and i mean that in a good way.Whoever gets fletcher will land a diamond22 goals in 40 starts in a poor wolves team who have struggle to score goals. Whoever signs him will be suprised just how good he is.It wont be a loan charlton ARE looking to sign him for about 1m (might not happen but i KNOW we are interested)I would hope Fletcher does sign for a club like Arsenal instead of being linked to poison like QPR or Stoke.Baldock to leeds or brightonWell he isn't going to Leeds and Brighton so sh! They have no moneyHe is suposed to go watford aswell though and that seems o be more likelyRumour that Baldock to Blackpool on season long loan...

Cheltenham Town are set to snap up
free agent goalkeeper, Philip Smith.
The Former Swindon town man has been
out of favour at Swindon and has been
left with no further intentions for a new

august also, with the former Swindon
man being seen at a cheltenham pre season
game it looked likely for him to sign there
and then, but a year on, the deal is on
the cards(5)(3)

Lloyd Sam, Billy paynter, Daniel bogdanovic, Stuart beavon and Alex Bruce are all expected to sign permanent deals at notts county in the near future. You heard it here first!(10)(14)Let's hope soI would love it to happen but i doubt it because there is 3 strikers thereQuite likely as we have no strikers apart from Hughes. Hawley and Burgess are likely to stay at Cheltenham and Crawley.

19 May 2012 17:19:55
My brothers best mate is Junior Stanislas and he said he will be joining Charlton along with Jay Rodriguez in a deal worth £5m to Burnley.(2)(43)Yeah because Burnley will sell them both for that, Also Rodriguez will go to a much bigger and better club than Charlton(No Offence) but he'll be playing in the prem next seasonHA Wind your necks in Charlton fans! Absolute rubbish!Keep dreaming, JRod will only be sold to a PL team not league one teamYou Charlton guys are making your club look stupid.
Why would Rodriguez move to another Championship club?
You really are idiotic if you think that.What a load of kak

We turned down a 5 million bid from Fulham

Also I bet Charlton havent even got 5 Mill to spend.We have no idea on budget at charlton JRod will go prem imoIm a charlton fan and 1) this will most likely NOT have come from a charlton fan 2) we are a more attractive club than burnley (more ambition, money and in london) 3) one of our 3 owners is kevin cash (look him up) he has 100's of millions for us and we have more money than you, i no we wont be signing these players but think before you post something like 'Charlton dont have 5 million'!!!!!!!!!How much do they have 8 million?Just because he's called Kevin cash doesn't mean he has all the money in the world and can buy every player , as for charlton being a better team than burnley Pah they'd y u wer league 1 last year , u will see when we take 6 points off u st cunjys next season . UTCOmg your charlton mate, no offence but your nothing special, you wont sign players of that calibre.Nobody knows who the money behind Charlton is, that's why they have companies in tax havens owning the shares and front men running it.

Anyone can see this deal will not happen apart from the 12 year old that wrote it. Most of these posts are not from Charlton fans, this is obvious from the little knowledge they have of the club.


19 May 2012 17:08:54
Celtic fc have entered the race to sign Jordan Rhodes they have stated that they will put a maximum bid of upto 5million to secure him(17)(15)Looks like on his way to Fulham depending on next saturdays resultNo they have notWith Hooper off to Southampton it makes senseHooper is going no where

Dicanio warned the Swindon Board,now wait and see he will return to West Ham next week.
Swindon fans miss out yet again.
Where is this mega Rich Board???
Funds are not in place and with the Budget West Ham will give Dicanio he is bound to accept the job.
Who will Swindon appoint???? is so sad for the Fans(1)(20)Don't believe that for a minute. How stupid would Gold&Sullivan be to sack Allardyce now after winning the playoff final and giving the job to DiCanio.
DiCanio could become West Ham manager one day, but let's see what he can do with a League One or Championship club first.
Allardyce will continue to work towards making West Ham a team that'll be hard to beat, looking forward to it...Seeing West Ham have just won promotion, Allardyce won't be going anywhere soon.Same sad oxford fan writing all this bull about PDC. You can't even spell his name correctly.What an absolute load of bull, this is such a useless joke of a post and I'm a Leeds. FanPoor sad little boy

Ipswich boss Paul Jewell has been in contact with Craig Gordan about a posible move to ipswich town, the talks are believed to be going well and Paul Jewell would love to make him an ipswich town goal keeper!(10)(6)Not the only place where ive herd this!Ipswich are apparently signing every player in the world if you listen to their deluded fansI knew it wouldn't take long for an Ipswich fan to write this rubbish.

TeejLUFCOnly because you at Leeds can't sign anybody cause your skint and a small clubHow are they going to afford his wagesIts a fact Leeds are struggling to find £450'000 for Ward, Ipswich have got a sizeable cash fund from ME, to strengthen this summerThere is no sixeable amount ,clegg already said ipswich over 100% on wages to income slashing budget expect ipswich to be challenging for league 1 again


19 May 2012 16:06:33
Free Agent David Connolly has caused interest from Bradford city, Rotherham united and Dagenham & Redbridge. The 34 year old doesn't plan on retiring any day soon.(10)(5)He also doesn't plan to drop a division...Don't know about dropping a division. At his age he will go where suits him best rather than aiming for a specific division. I can see him playing for a decent League 1 side, but yes generally I would imagine him to go for a middle-lower championship side.


19 May 2012 16:01:11
emile heskey is at huish park on a trial to see whether he fits into gary johnson's plans, the striker was released by Aston Villa and has said he has no interest in earning masses of money however would like to play at the highest possible level(6)(14)And his highest possible level is Yeovil?? Stop moking whetever you are onNorwich want heskey!


19 May 2012 15:57:58
Southampton looking to bring in two strikers to create a premiership class attack force. Can expect to hear the names AKINFENWA and HESKY in a saints shirt next season.
On another note, i haven't heard many rumours that have been realistic so i thought i would post a couple i think could be possible or would be nice to see happen.
Chung Yong Lee - Bolton - 3/4Million
Dirk Marcellis - AZ Alkmaar - 1.5 Million
Marten Martaens - AZ Alkmaar - 5 Million
Tranquillo Barnetta - Bayer Leverkusen - Free(i believe)
Mavuba - Lille - 6 Million [ would love to see this happen, great player would be perfect alongside cork or schneiderlin](3)(20)Most of these are a load of rubbish.

Think something might be announced on Monday.All of it is rubbish!I enjoy FIFA as much as the next man but the glitch in the program that makes some players much much better than they are in real life, beast some would say, is just that, a glitch. With that I hope that neither hesky or that northampton player arrive and I sincerely doubt they will.A premier league class attack force involving Akinfenwa I'll have a pint of what you're having! Sounds like you've just read down the page and bundled all the rumours into one massive load of rubbish!Chung-Yong Lee will have better offers than Southampton.Akinfewa and Hesky were obviously jokes you muppets.

The others are just names you've heard elsewhere then tried to quantify a tranfer fee for, nothing new or groundbreaking here.Chung Yong Lee won't leave until January, the big clubs need to be sure that he can get back to full fitness again.Chungy isn't going anywhere. especially for 4 million and especially to Southampton

19 May 2012 14:58:11
North End to sign strikers Marc Richards in the next week and Collins for a fee from Shrewsbury.

Kieran Lee to Sign from Oldham,(2)(4)Firstly you can't afford to pay transfer fees, so won't sign Collins. Secondly Collins has been linked with Champ teams, so why would he sign for Preston. Thirdly Kieran Lee is very close to signing for Sheffield Wednesday.And fourthly, he has signed for WednesdayFifthly you can't afford the wages he will be on now at Sheff Wed. Bit behind with whats actually happened to some players.Collins contract is up , hes on compensation!!!

But not our policy and he would not London/SouthCan only see this happening if Ba or Cisse leaves as Defoe wants first team football

I am a Brighton fan and I'm sick of all the ipswitch fans saying how theyare going to sign every player under the sun. It is frankly ridiculous as at the moment, you are not all that attractive. You struggled to a bottom half finish and your support have been cpromised by the success of norwich. Wake up and get real! Oh, and Norwich are a bigger, better club than you and they are not a sinking ship (if they are then ipswitch must be totally sunk!).(14)(5)Well I am not an Ipswich fan Mr Brighton but you don't half look stupid with your inability to spell.Also last year - it was Brighton this and Brighton that - biggest deal deal you did was Craig Mickail SuperflopBut we still finished way above ipsh1t...What do you have in common with door.... and a .... of butter?Tbf ipswich say it every year, makes it all the better that the only class they attract is nathan ellington!1. you can't spell

Everton are set to state an interest in either Craig gordon or Allan McGregor from Rangers, other targets are Villareal midfeildet Borja V & Fulhams Clint Dempsey. Moyes could sell Jack Rodwell to Celtic in order to gather in some funds {Ed025's Note - celtic can not afford rodwell, he would be at least 15m..(2)(9)I hope Dempsey stays, but if he does move I think it'll be to a CL club. He's said he would like to play CL, otherwise very happy where he is. If he moves I think either Manchester Utd or ArsenalValero wont hack the prem,he was a fish out of water when he was at the Baggies.Why on earth would Rodwell ever go to Celtic?
1) They cant afford him
2) He wants to play for England
3) He's a premier league class player
4) Premier League teams who can afford him will buy him if he's availableRodwell is worth 25 million mate u lot r in dream land u win the league by default and u are the best since sliced breed you lot r clowns just like ur managerWinning the league by default? but 20-10=10? We were 2 points clear in December, way before Rangers sold Jelavic or were in administrationI think youll find the only team to win tainted titles is rankers over last twenty year as youll find out when they get stripped off yous this is the first title thats not been tainted in the last twenty year

19 May 2012 12:53:41
Sunderland to bring in Weimann from Aston Villa to bolster their attacking options with Kevin Davies from relegated Bolton another option. Nicklas Bentner's loan deal will not be renewed. Connar Wickham will be allowed to go out on loan to gain much needed first team experience.

Sunderland really should be looking to bring in a big name to the SOL to excite the fans. Something they haven't seen since Kevin Phillips.

With Gordon being released another Goalkeeper will need to be brought in. Rumour has it that they couldn't agree a new contract due to the players wage demands, with Sunderland being reluctant to pay high wages to a player who has spend a large portion of his Sunderland career on the long term injury list.

They will face a very tough challenge to hang on to Stephan Sessegnon who has been attracting attention from former club PSG. The player could hand in a written transfer request, should such an offer come in for him.

One thing the Sunderland fans do not want to see is O'Neill bringing in a load of Villa rejects.

A long summer ahead at the Stadium of Light.....(2)(14)K.Davies has signed a new contract at BoltonKevin Davies has just signed a contract with Bolton.You just guessingLoad of bcks. Gordon released because Westwood and Mignolet are better and he is too injury prone.
Sess staying unless someone bids 20 mill and no one will!

Dicanio to join West Ham, reason Money has not been made available to bring new players in.
Seems he warned the club that they had to decide,hence reason all is quiet.
Also Mat Ritchie/Aden Flint/Billy Bodin to leave.
Candidate for Swindon Job is martin Ling(6)(15)Same old same old...getting boring nowLOL totally untrue. More money at Swindon than West Ham even though they got promoted, and Big Sam won't leave because they got promoted. Bodin is also signing a new contract.


19 May 2012 12:01:28
Aston Villa's search for a new manager continues.

Martinez had talks with Randy Lerner (AVFC owner) on Thursday which is why no talks with Liverpool have gone underway.
Lambert is pleading with the Norwich board to allow him access to contact with Aston Villa.
solskjaer had possible talks with Villa on Friday & Lerner has gone back to the USA for a few days to manage some family issues.

Lerner is apparently looking to find a Director of Football at Villa Park first, Gerard Houllier could apparently be set for a shock Villa return in that job capacity.
Gus Poyet has apparently been ruled out having got no top side experience.(2)(13)So if Poyet is ruled out for having no top side experience how are:
Martinez/Solskjaer/Lambert all in the frame? none have managed a top sideTop side - A EPL team not Championship/League 1Lambert pleading to go to Villa? Lambert pleading the board not to give him permission sounds more realistic...Carroll is on 80 actually {Ed025's Note - i think he deserves the full pound..

Big Rumours From Cardiff Craig Bellamy Has Said That He Would Love To Play For Caridff This Coming Season, His Main Reason For Joining Liverpool Was Daglish Without Him There He Would Prefer A Move Back To His Hometown.(12)(20)Bellamy will look for one more big signing on payday rumour has it he will be joining anelka's teamHis main reason for joining liverpool was the 80k he was picking up nothing to do with kenny

daviebhoy08 {Ed001's Note - you couldn't be more wrong! He bought out his contract and took a pay cut to play under Dalglish actually. He was offered more by Cardiff, without the need to buy out his contract either, but took the Liverpool offer to play for his hero. It was nothing to do with money, you have no idea. I don't even know where you got this 80k nonsense from, dreaming I think, not one new player, that has arrived since FSG took over, earns over 70k a week and only one player gets that much, Suarez.}

Ian Harte is thought to be considering his options after being told by Brian Mcdermott he will only be used as cover next season. The main interested club are believed to be his former club Leeds who he would welcome the chance to go back where he would be more wanted. Reason: Yet to sign a contract which he was offered almost a month ago(9)(14)Nonsense. He's been offered a new one year deal and is currently on holiday. He knows he could be a bit part player but he has been quoted as saying he wants to be part of one final Premiership campaign before he hangs his boots up next summer.

Chances of him turning that down for a Championship club 2/10.


19 May 2012 02:07:57
Following his fairly consistent season, including his prolific form towards the end of the SPL season for Celtic, it is thought that Gary Hooper could be making a move back over the border into England, with a large number of teams interested in acquiring his highly sought after signature.

From a source very close to the club, I can add fuel to the ever growing fire that Gary Hooper could infact be on his way to Carrow Road subject to the future of Grant Holt following his recent transfer request. I believe that if Norwich do infact keep hold of Holt over the Summer, a number of teams are waiting and monitoring the situation very closeley, with the front-runners being West Brom who are interested in swapping Marc Antoine Fortune with the English forward.

Watch this space.(5)(16)Norwich after Hooper to replace HoltThink you are right that Hooper will move south-but it will be a good deal further south than Norwich!
You are about to lose your manager,and your top player-why would he join an unstable club?Hooper probably if moves he will go to saints
Norwich look to miss out on Rhodes and go to Fulham and holt to everton or Newcastle due to demba ba 7mil arsenal deal!Celtic bhoy here, hoops has been fantastic this year and would like to add,
I hope he stays and at least gives the champs league a go.
Don't know what money would be involved but would like to think 7m +Hi Celtic bhoy-I think you will find Hoopers 5 goals were a swan song, and he will be away.
He stalled on his new contract negotiations for a reason, and whilst he may want to play Champions League I suspect he also rates his chances at international honours, and with due respect he will not get that showing each week that he can score against rubbish defenders.Can i just remind u lot gary hooper plays in the SPL a league that isnt better than the blue square league, and you lot think he is good enough for the EPL get a grip.It isnt better than the Blue Square? One word - the above poster I would like to remind you that Jelavic came to the EPL from the SPL and he seems to be scoring for fun. Hooper will score goals wherever he plays - end of. EPL is miles better than the SPL and no-one will dispute that - but it is full of foreign imports hence why the england team is not great at the minute.How is the spl not better than the blue square prem? Typical english always biast. IM not backing up the spl or anything cos il admit its not the best league in the world but if the splk is so st then why do all you english prem teams buy all the best players from scotland. Heres a list

Adam rooney - birmingham
Ricardo Vaz te - west ham
James Mcarthy - wigan
James Mcarthur - wigan
gary caldwell - wigan
Connor sammon - wigan
David goodwillie - blacburn
Shaun maloney - wigan
Jos hooiveld not good enough for celtic - southampton
Darren odea not good enough for celtic - leeds
John fleck not good enough for rangers - blackpool
And many more
All these players have only left a season or 2 ago so shove you blue square premier up your assO ye but the spl is full of scottish talent hence why the national team is doing brilliantly. In fact i forgot they qualified for a major international tournament. What a pathetic thing to say. The reason why the england team is rubbish atm is because it lacks cohesion and is holding on too what brooking called the "golden generation"All of the players are in the 2 second division or bottom of the 1st I rest my caseEngland national team is an utter joke in the next 5 years they will be a laughing stock of the giants in football and when uefa bring in the domestic caps on transfer fees and wages watch all the big players leave and your league go down the pan typical thick football fanWho would swap fortune for holt, fortune been immense this season

Seagulls swoop for Swanson

Brighton are in talks with out-of-contract Dundee United player Danny Swanson's representatives over a move to the Championship. Hibs and Aberdeen are also interested in the 25-year-old winger but he would prefer a move south. (Express)(5)(9)Gus stated this weekend - why does he need a 5ft 6 scottish player when he has the best attacking midfielders in the world outside of the Premier & La Liga when Vicente re-signs.The Argus (the Sussex local paper) quotes Poyet as saying that the club have watched Swanson but have not made any approach for him.

Joe Lewis-Free

Liam Lawrence-1 Million
Haris Vuckic- Season Long Loan
Ant Gerrard-1 Million(Hull)
Tom Heaton-Free
Paul Quinn-Free
Lee Naylor-Free
Peter Whittingham-6 Million(West Ham if they go up)(4)(26)Reading are not selling Le Fondre.Le Fondre is not leaving reading u have nooooo chance!!Snodgrass wouldnt go to cardiff either, why move sideways?Vuckic will be needed at Newcastle for Europa leagueWat rubbish! why would reading let their top goal scorer leave? and cardiff dont hav tht much money to spend. the owners said they were looking to cut costs so why would they spend more money and increase the wage bill? whittingham will leave for about 3/4m cos hes gonna be in the last year of his contract isn't he?To be fair Le Fondre isn't prem quality. Would be ok bench warmer though.Cardiff would not be a sideways move for Snodgrass, it would be a backward step"To be fair Le Fondre isn't prem quality. Would be ok bench warmer though."

Lets wait and see shall we.

800k, try at least 2 milSnodgrass won't come to us, if he goes anywhere it will be the prem. Le Fondre will be a benchwarmer next season and If Whitts goes it won't be for any less than 5 mill as thats his release claus in his new 3 year contract which he signed at the start of last season. Also we have started cutting the wage bill by releasing players which then frees up money to bring new players in...What if he [Snodgrass] doesnt move at all?

18 May 2012 19:54:52
through my job im at st marys every week and in the last transfer window staff there said micheal owen had been in but i heard the same thing that relocating his horses was the main problem, so see what happens there.. adam johnson would be a good signing but it would probaly be a loan deal, with wages etc.. personaly i like us to get antonio back, ok hes unproven at prem level yet but hes been destroying teams lately, the guys got bags of pace and power which the current team lacks i think, he was the star of the show at wembley infront of 50k southampton fans but mayb reading wouldnt sell him now(10)(9)I would deffo have antonio back in a flashLeague one player at best. you'd have michail antonio, over ADAM JOHNSON?Being realistic... yes I would have antonio over Johnson.

Johnson is potentially a massive ego and a huge wage we don't need unbalancing the squad. I wouldn't want to risk ti for johnson, whereas Antonio is worth the risk, he's being tearing teams apart in League 1 during the run in, if we can get him for under £1million it's a risk worth taking as he will resell back to the championship if the prem doesnt work out.Antonio had a good season last year against average players ,itsa whole new ball game in the premier league johnson would be great but i cant see it wages will be a big stumbling blockHow can somebody be potential massive ego. They either have a massive ego or they don't.^having an ego is totally circumstantial.

It's the whole "big fish, little pond" scenario.
Coming from City to Saints, he could think he is above himself rather than any equal part of the team... hence there is a potentially ego problem there.

Now pipe down and stop being pedantic. Everyone knows exactly what is meant by the above post (regardless of use of the word 'ego'), concentrate on the football rumours not semantic details.

Reports in today's Daily Blar and Daily Fail about Reading wanting to sign Joe Cole are accurate, but not on a permanent deal.

Reading have been in talks with Liverpool over a season long loan deal, offering 50% of his wages.(7)(9)He's on £80 grand we can't afford half that.He'll go to a bigger club, but credit for aiming high!How do you know what Reading can afford? That will never be made public!Because the takeover hasn't been completed yet so funds are still limited till that point. Plus our top earner is probably Jimmy Kebe after he signed his new contract and he's on at best 20K a week do you really reckon we would upset all our players by giving a loanee double that?

Don't be silly

Birmingham may have their transfer embargo lifted in July as Carson yeung is having some of his assets unfrozen(2)(12)I thought the transfer embargo was for late filing of accounts.They cant have it lifted .untill his court case about his dodgy dealings and hes cleared of all charges and that case dont start till november and could last 6 months
and if he looses the club could be come the property of his govermentIs the correct answer. They last said the accounts would be filed before the play off final, not that it matters very much to them anymore. Expect an ADMIN annoucenement in the coming weeks.The football league can lift the embargo 4 days after the accounts are published

Scouting in different countries is the way foward.All of them to Leeds, wouldnt be suprisedUnfortunately keogh won't leave Coventry as he is settled where he is but unless a significant bid comes in (not 500k) he won't be going anywhere

Charlton are looking at activating the release clause of nigel reo-coker following the Manchester clubs relegation from the premier league last weekend.(3)(17)Does nigel reo-coker not play for boltonAnd the fact he is using his release clause to play for a PREMIERSHIP team?On the plus side...

Government is re-assessing its new education plan around the Charlton area, focussing more resources toward basic geography lessons and the fundamental principles of economics.

Charlton too poor.
Bolton isn't in Manchester. {Ed003's Note - I think he meant Greater Manchester }Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Oldham, Tameside, Stockport, Manchester, Telford and Salford = Greater Manchester. Ooooh now there's a surprise!

Perhaps it's not the schools in Charlton that require more work as it seems Geography lessons are better than those elsewhere in the country. Let's turn to economics shall we? I wonder if you know who the new owners of Charlton are and how much money they have? No? Oh dear, another surprise.Wow im 13 and i know where bolton is its as close to manchester as bury which i dont expect u 2 know anyway u think reo coker will come to us anyway he didnt keep bolton up i gess bellamy is rite he has no skillOk same guy i know the owners tony jiminez may not be worth billions but he does have contacts no one knows michael slater and kevin cash if he dus own part of us he is minted hes worth bout 5-600m charlton skools dont need work its probs just dumb retards clogging the website o yer any1 been to manchester or surrounding towns didnt think so

Grant Holt set to sign for southampton after handing in a transfer request. Norwich turned down the inital offer prompting Holt to hand in the request. Saints set to sign the norwich striker for 2million.-

ESPN news(19)(38)In your dreamsDon't want him at st Mary's.Piffle. It says no such thing on ESPN. Do have to wonder where he's going though?! Spurs to replace adebayor? Who knows?!What complete and utter toshYou're saying he will go for only 2 million pounds when in January Norwich rejected 9 million pounds for him from rangers {Ed003's Note - Nobody offered £9m for him least of all Rangers }9 million pounds ?? Are you on medication ? Cisse at Newcastle cost that, and he's a lot, lot better than Holt.I think its his agent doing his job, good luck to him if he can double his money for nx 2 years. He is not getting any younger so we have had his best years. thanks for good times grant. one thing is certain he is not leaving us for southampton, dream on saints.ncfc matt9million haha dont be silly...why make this crap up as ed has pointed out..?Can't see Saints would be interested in Holt. I believe they are still intending to bring in Hooper-his last game for Celtic looked very much like a "thanks but goodbye" performance to me, after a period where he looked rather disinterested. His salary negotiations were delayed until the end of the season and I believe this was so he would be able to compare what he had been earning, was offered by Celtic going forward in comparison to what might be on offer from EPL.
The ongoing exclusion of English players playing in Scotland from English international consideration will also be a factor.
Positive he is on the way south, and if Adkins could mix him into his current forward options then, with due respect to Holt, I don't think he would be required. (But I could see him moving with the Norwich manager to another team in the Premiership.)Holt isnt going to saints. Hes 31 years old, why would we want him when lambert is just as good as him and the same age.He wouldn't go to saints simply because he wouldn't get that much of an increase on his wages. Holt, you are greedy if it is a money issue. If you leave for more money, I hope the the team you sign for gets relegated. That's what you will get for being greedy! Nothing.

Watford to sign Shrewsbury Town striker James Collins on a free transfer. The hornets are in talks with the ex-Villa striker and are hoping to sign Collins on a 4 year deal.(10)(6)It won't be free. He's under 24, so Watford need to pay a fee.Watford have no moneyShrews will want at least £400k for CollinsWe don't have "no money". We've been selling players, we're likely to spend some money. Shrewsbury will not get £400k by tribunal, doesn't matter if they want it or not.People who keep saying we hav no money can you just please know wat you re talking about! we hav enough to sign lower league players but not millions. but we still hav some! so stop bringing up rubbish. im not sure if collins will come mainly cos of shrewsburys promotion. depends how loyal he is to tthem. he may sign a contract with a release clause if they re relegatedCollin's compensation is £150k! where is this £400k coming from? stop making stuff up!

AWFUL AWFUL PLAYER, sorry Calv, you gave it your best at palace and whilst we remember Hillsborough, you were ste the rest of the time.I'd like to see the definition of a "successful loan spell".....he didn't score any goals!

Southampton set to snap up Grant Holt now he has handed in a transfer request(17)(19)Just what Southampton need, after all they are short on Strikers aren't they!!!2million is apprantly the price saints want to payThey also rejected itWe have 4 strikers, with one possibly going out on loan or yeah we do need another striker!Why would you want holt anyway, has no technical ability, just dives, spends more time on the floor than playing!Can't see it. As I have just posted elsewhere I think Hooper is still Saints target.Why would we still be in for hooper? He'd be behind lambert, sharp and tad in the pecking order. If we sign another striker it'll be a younger one who wont mind acting as back-up. This is the only thing I see as preventing us going for J-rod, who's cheaper but prob wouldnt (or shouldnt) want to risk bench-warming. The money would be far better spent on Johnson.


18 May 2012 17:02:37
Crystal Palace are in talks with West Ham's Sam Baldock and Reading's Simon Church(14)(14)You can have Church for free and id even drive him to Selhurst Park myselfChurch recently got selected for the Welsh side along side Robson Kanu. Kanu fair play but have no idea what Churchy is doing there but hopefu;lly pump his value up when/if we sell him


18 May 2012 17:01:15
heard we were thinking of putting in a bid of between 4 to 5 mil in for rhodes if his team dont win promotion any truth ed? {Ed005's Note - I'm sure he'd wait for an established team to enter the race for him, what league to WE play in?}(4)(3)

Grant Holt hands in transfer request

Source: Sky Sports News(30)(9)I heard he's on his way to SaintsHe has, but they have refused it!!According to bbc radio solent, saints got him to put in a transfer request so he can join them...2million is the price....welcome to st marys holt!Yep He's on his way to Ipswich, a far better club lol, he'll have to have a good scrub and steam clean before he's allowed to don the wonderful Blue shirt, and its all because he knows Lamberts moving to a bigger clubSt Marys Holt
sounds like a railway station lol

18 May 2012 16:46:02
GRANT HOLT has handed in a transfer request st Norwich.

Anyone thing this'll mean he'll go to a 'bigger' club and have a terrible season next year?(18)(7)Joining southamptonNorwich have rejected his request, but Lambert will now look to sell him to the highest bidder, clearly his agent has been hawking him about, and there are better wages on offer elsewhere. my guess is Leicester, West Ham,Southampton, West Brom.
So no doubt an offer or two will now be made to the club from interested parties, hold out until near start of season and find out how bad the other club want him.
My guess is that he will not enjoy the same success next season in Premier league, so at 31 it would make financial sense for Norwich to cash in on him.He wont join the Saints, they have Lambert, who's not so dramatic in and around the box showing his diving skills

Charlton to do a southampton and norwich next season(12)(26)Good luck with that, but I will be very surprised if you get automatic promotion next season, and may find it very difficult to make the play off spots.
Expect Leicester, Bolton & Wolves to be right up there, Blackburn (if they change the manager)might also go close, and for an outside bet Middlesborough, Birmingham & ForestNot a chance!!No chance
the mighty owls though will go straight upOooh mightyNo way in hell


18 May 2012 16:08:26
As a Forest fan here I'd like to prepare you not to get too excited about Gareth Mc'cleary.He's had 3 good months with us out of the last 3 seasons.He's average and the wide men you already have are much better.I think he'll be a back up player for you.I suppose he didn't cost you anything so he's worth a gamble.Anyway good luck in the prem.(6)(3)Ignore him, he's just bitter he's left, or is trying to be positive for forest.
As a forest fan, he is a raw talent and is capable of winning a match for you. He is strong, fast and can run at defenders. He can shoot with both feet, head and tackle.
The reason he has only had a good half season, is he has only played regularly for us for the last half season.
I hope he does well for you as he is a likeable bloke.

Hoppers u1Not bitter then?

Southampton are closing in on the signings of Giovani Dos Santos, Tranquilo Barnetta and the loan signing of Adam Johnson from Manchester City.(12)(24)Ive heard this tooWow, if this happens i will literally eat my own toe. From a saints fan!
Tbh if one of these happens it would be amazing! don't rate Santos that highly, but you never know, he could shine at a smaller team!Dos Santos to Spanish Club
Barnetta to stay in Germany
Johnson to Newcastle!!!!!Yeah would do well at a smaller club like saintsOnly a fool would think Saints are a small club.Only a fool would think Southampton are a big team... Your have beens, there are many teams that are considered bigger than you know if you put fan base to one side. Fulham,Norwich,Aston Villa,WBA,Stoke,Sunderland and Newcastle are miles ahead of you in football terms!Were not to big were not to small were just um um um!!!

reliable source(5)(13)No experience, chairman Peace will not take a chance on an inexperienced manager after mowbray and RDM, He knows that for the Baggies to continue to move forward he needs an experienced head in the mould of Roy Hodgson in charge.Doubt it to be honest

Gary Doherty is going to hold talks with Southend, former team mate Rohan Ricketts is also rumored with a move there but because of the club failing to gain promotion its going to take a decent wage offer for him to join. Southend are also interested in Jack Midson (AFC Wimbledon) and Adebayo Akinfenwa (Northampton Town) as to improve their Strike force as Freddy Eastwood is set to join a League 1 team.(4)(6)


18 May 2012 15:42:13
people saying barnsley have no money
to spend are wrong.
they still have the 500k from vaz te +
another 400k if they get promoted.
about 500k from the shackell deal
and will recieve around 1.5mill
for butterfield.
all this is available to keith hill for
transfers as he has already cut the
wage budget.
and keith wants at least 4 players with championshi
championship experience and around 4
coming in will be
martin paterson 750k
zak whitbread free
james coppinger 350k
luke varney 600k

oliver norwood 400k
scott brown 100k
danny swanson free(5)(10)Hmm...I think that's a bit of a wish list...
Paterson - no chance
Varney - no chance (leeds, middlesborough)
Swanson - no chance (going to Brighton)
Coppinger - doubt it

Whitbread, brown and even Norwood are possible though (assuming you get a decent fee for butterfield...)Barnsley have got no chance of getting promoted, they were nearly relagated last season!On the players [othher than Vaz Te] he,s fetched to the Club I wouldn,t give him a Fiver so 2 million out of questionHe means if west ham get promotedI think the poster was referring to WEST HAM getting promoted (if they are barnsley get more money for vaz te). There is absolutely no chance of Barnsley getting promoted!Luke Varney 600k reallyDingle fantasies. Need to be looking at lower leagues ready for your forthcoming relegationGood luck with Varney....80% of the clubs he has played for have got relegated!!


18 May 2012 15:38:46
James constable will sign for stevenage within the next month(2)(13)Id be very suprised if he did. Only had a ok season I think and playing in Div 1 might be a tall order? I think he will leave OUFC thoughAlways raTed him can he do the kob in league 1 we may or may not find out.


18 May 2012 15:37:22
Swansea were only down 9 million after year 1 in the prem. This was mainly made up of the 3.5 million for Danny and other signings. They were given 47 million for where they finished through placing and television rights. Swansea are one of the only clubs in the top flight that can actually say they have money in the bank - and alot of it! And they have some BIG money sponsership deals on the table now everyone has bought into the fact that we are a good footballing club. We will never make ridiculous bids for players, but if they are worth it and the price is right and within budget, they will.
Also - I know it means nothing now, but we finished top of the fair play league which is excellent for a team coming up who usually have to fight hammer and tong and give away alot of yellow/red cards. It just shows the manner in which we did it.

Transfers - Siggy is heating up, Huw has been in Germany for a few days now and its looking positive that we will get him. Acting early to ensure we get him. Looking at around 7.75 million. Gunter is also heating up at around 2 million.

I would like to see some more spanish hidden gems come out though. I think any real star signings will comefrom that direction due to style of play. Perhaps Senna will come this year. Think we need an experienced head to rub off on the lads. We also definately need another striker. A 20 goal plus striker.(7)(6)You did not pay the players all season then, only £9m. I suspect this to be incorrect.I think it does not matter who you sign cos you will need to spend big to stay in the premier league, just not going to be good enoughWolves wba n maybe stoke im not sure are 3 clubs in the prem who were in the black when finacial reports came out not sure if theres any more ED can you help out here {Ed025's Note - i cant mate...sorry..Stoke only club in black - Swansea will be too but had to pay end of year bonuses to their squad before premiership pa9d out. They will make profits of over £22m this financial year.


18 May 2012 15:36:21
As a Saints fan I can honestly say Adam Johnson is far too good for us (But bloody hell Lallana on the left him on the right...TASTY!) The most ever spent on a player was 4 million on Rory Delap I cannot see us breaking our record on our return to the premiership(7)(7)You need to recognise this is not Lowe Down City, but a totally different Saints management structure. If Celtic are to be believed we have already offered £6m for Hooper in the January window, so if Adam Johnson was available I think there is every chance Saints would look at him.I can see us breaking our record but not on this playerI agree we wont sign Johnson more established prem clubs will be after him.
As for spending more then 4 million, we will. We offered more then that for Rodriguez and Hooper whilst we were in the Championship. IMO i reackon we should sign 2 central defender 1 ball winning midfield player 1 striker and most important we need pace in wide areas so Johnson fits the bill but i think its wishful thinking. or
Maybe just a Skate posting the rumour, they seem to post most of our rumours, they need a club to talk about, there not doing too good.I bet we will break our transfer record. Not saying on Adam Johnson, but I believe we will.Are you kidding me saints will break that embarrassing record for sure, look at some f the bids placed rumoured 5-7 million on Kay Rodrigues aswell as Hooper

I highly doubt we will sign adam Johnson but you can't rule it out Southampton are very ambitios and the facility's are fantastic we wouldn't compete with the top 5 due to wages but we have ambition already trying to get some big names if they come off is a different matterI think we will beat that. But only on 1 marque style signing.At last a sensible Saints fan,one who know,s the clubs limitations and that premiership survival is a marathon and not a sprint.Well, we got a highly sought after chelsea player without being in the top flight!, who incidentally is coming on leaps and bounds being played week in week out! Plus the Johnson thing really seems to be gathering pace. No smoke without fire. I'm certainly not ruling it out. Besides, be honest now, if we could get either Johnson or Hooper, given that we're now pretty solid in attack (dont get angry celtic fans! its just we have 3 very good strikers now), who would you have? If the moneys the same for the transfer. The papers say hes on 50k a week at MFC, our cap was 35k last season, allegedly rising to 45k this season. The figures arent thaaat away!

In Nige and Nic we trust!I think we will sign good players soon we do need to


18 May 2012 15:24:58

Woooeeee, its hotting up now for the signature of Joel Ward, Blackpool, Sheff Wed, Burnley, Crystal Palace, Little ol Leeds, and Ipswich, have all thrown the hat in the ring, But Ward will not be rushed into making his decision, on who he wants to join, he's talking with Blackpool & Sheffield Wednesday this weekend, so sometime next week he could be signing, BUT FOR WHO.

Join us next week for the continuing story of who will he sign for.

Here's the odds, 5/1 Blackpool & Burnley, 4/1 Palace 3/1 Leeds, 9/4 Wednesday evens Ipswich so place your bets.(7)(5)As he lives in Emsworth nr Portsmouth and his family do not want to move I can see Palace being the favourites as it's only an hour and a bit drive up the M3I'm think leeds should go for either jordan rhodes or beckford this summer... as i think we really need a top striker next season which can promise us atleast a goal in every match or two!

Watford are in talks withe James Collins of Shrewsbury and are hoping to agree a deal by the start of next week. Is he any good?(6)(6)Young player, with bags of potential, got a good header, strong on ball, never gives up, Knows where the net is.

Future star in my opinionAbout to sign new deal at shrews next weekIf he wanted to stay at Shrewsbury he would have signed a new deal by now surely.No, Shrewsbury are talking to him next week. His agent says he's happy to stay if the money is good. ^I saw this in the paper, it never mentioned money tho, it said he just wants to play football, never mentioned wages!

Sean O'Driscoll to take two ex Bournemouth yuoth strikers in Sam Vokes and Matt Paterson to Crawley Town. Vokes will cost 100K, Paterson is a free agent.

cant see vokes being sold for as little as 100k, also doubt he would go to league 1(7)(8)Voles can not even score gls at L1 level so over pricedI've heard this to. Both were very highly regarded by SOD neither have set the world alight since - could be very good signings for Crawley.Paterson couldn't get a conference team to take him never mind a league one team.

Preston chairman Peter Risdale to make "3 or 4" big name signings from a higher division, breaking the transfer record. To fund this he will use future income providing the club reach the premier league by 2019/20(6)(13)Should read " Preston Chairman Peter Ridsdale to make 3 or 4 signings to break the transfer recored and subsequently plunge Preston into financial meltdown as he did at Leeds and Cardiff". Best of luck having him as your Chairman,Shades of Rangers!Paahhha whats this for fifa 12?Is that blue square premier by any chanceRisdales a liability mate, look at his record

Crawley Town on verge of financial colapse(22)(13)Seems unlikely since I would imagine that Sean O'Driscoll would have done financial due diligence on Crawley before becoming their Manager this week.Where has that come from.....I hope not but they have spent a fortune and with small crowds they must have had huge backers. Have they pulled the plugThe original backer passed away and now his family want their money back one of the reasons why your top goalscorers went before the end of the season and even evans going he spent all your cash and now he is going to spend all of Rotherhams money with this time there being no returns for what he has spentIt's been coming for a long time... Not surprised!


18 May 2012 14:33:07
On the news that leicester have signed vardy for a million pound i think that although he has the potential to be a great player a million pound for someone who's uoproven at championship level could be a bad decision.(7)(3)That's what they said about Ricky Lambert.Remember alan smith all those years ago look what he went on and doneMatt elliott, neil lennon ring a bellVardy is class

Rhodes - ST
Curtis Davies - CB
Thomkins - CB
Jack Butler - GK
Pacheco - ST
Snodgrass - LM

Not saying all these will come but heard that they're all targets

OTBC(12)(15)As a Norwich Fan, i can't see us signing all these, i don't think Pacheco is on Lambert list if he was i think he would have signed him last season. Rhodes is Fulham bound i hear.Wot no full backs, unbelievable.Jack Butland a player you obviously hadn't heard of until wednesday when the squad was announced...


18 May 2012 14:26:15
Michael Owen in talks with Graham Turner about a player coach role at Shrewsbury Town(8)(28)He's taliking to Di Canio at Swindon about a player / Coach role....providing he can replace PDC in a year when PDC moves on!! Swindon certainly a place that ex players cut their managerial teeth.Both of you are chatting rubbish he's currently away thinking about what to do. he hasn't spoken to anyone yet! I know this is a rumours page but some of them are terrible. Plus he only has the sufficient badges to coach in league two, so as Shrewsbury are in league one he wont be able to join as a player coach until he fulfils the sufficient coaching badgesNo chance of this happening. Said in an interview, he will not drop down a division to the Championship (so no chance of Lge 1) as he thinks he can still play at the highest level

I'd just like to pop on here and say that swap deals DO NOT happen in England.

I will happily state that no Premier League clubs will swap players with each other, whether it's a straight swap or a part-exchange. They don't happen.

So don't come on here saying so-and-so plus 5million for so-and-so - it won't happen.

Thank you.

Nikolay Bollukov(2)(6)Ok, so Stephen Ireland and £24 million didnt come to villa as part of the Milner to City deal then?-Ashley Cole - William Gallas (+£5M)
-Berbatov- £30M + F Campbell (loan)

Although Unlikely, stranger things have happened such as the famous deals listed.Funny, cause as a Villa fan I seem to remember us getting Ireland as part of a swap deal with Milner, and Carew as part of a swap deal with Milan Baros. Must be my imagination.Theres a first time for everything so shut up coz u dont know if swap deals will happenAlso didnt stephen ireland and james milner get put in a swap plus cash deal

An annoucment to be made at Portsmouth today or tommorow regards ne ownership of the club. Pre season friendly have all ready been arrange for next season. Season ticket pricess are to be announced and Appleton has stated he has a list of players he wants for next season. He cant do any thing until the Transfer embargo has been lifted. PUP PPU(2)(8)There is no announcement due today or tomorrow, your still in the same situation.Wake up and smell the coffee my friend there is no Fairy Godmother coming to help youThere is an announcement, but its Chainrai proposing a new CVA and taking the club on so they are not liquidated. However this is not a done deal by far, it has to be approved by the creditors and the Football League have to approve Chainrai. If all that goes ahead its still not all roses as all hes interested in is getting his money back.Not best news but just been announced that Balram Chanrai has put a bid to take club back over. Looks like the original poster was correct. The coffee smells OK by the wayWell he's no Fairy Godmother (and I really wish it was someone else) But I'm pretty sure it was an announcement so I'll drink the coffee, if I can't enjoy it.We will see Scummer, youare going to hate it when we are back in the Prem and you will be in the Championship maybe even lower.
Enjoy it whilst it last because it wont last long.Read Pompey's The News Balram Chainrai has submited a bid to regain control, not ideal but what else is on the table.You are a very long way off from even considering being in the Premier League! Im a Saints fan and I will be honest I know quite a few good pompey fans who "get" the situation they are in, then theres pompey fans like the previous poster who seem to have no clue at all..You l never ever get back
to the premiership
start living in the real worldWasn't Chanrai partly to blame for all this in the first place? Ive no sympathy for Portsmouth fans, you didnt worry about the wage bll and obviously impending debt when you won the FA cup and now its come home to roost you want sympathy. CVA = cheats charter!!Chanrai won't be there for very long - bet you he'll be gone by the end of November.

Portsmouth will be ok in the long run, but do not expect promotion back to the Championship until the middle of the decade.Cant wait until teams like southampton,man city chelsea and teams like that loose their owners.There are teams out there that dont even know they got debt then one day bang its announced there owner has left (abrahmovic) and they are in admin and dipping down the leaguesI agree chanrai will be gone before november but i feel we will be OKPompey will nevver die, I don't like chanrai but he needs to keep the club alive, so he doesn't loose his money

Saints are in the midst of completing a season long loan move for Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea are keen for him to gain some premier league experience and my source at St. Marys suggests he will be arriving next Monday to go through a medical. Loan fee for the season in the region of £1.5 million.(16)(9)OMG Romelu Lukaku would be amazing IMO but cant see it happening, i can see him going somewere on loan just not to us. I would imagine there will be a host of Prem clubs after him, teams like Sunderland, Stoke, Everton established Prem clubs. I would love it to happen just dont think it will.

Never going to happen unless Liverpool agree to a loan deal with reading paying less than 20% of his weekly salary. I'm a Reading FC fan but cannot see us spending more than 20k a week on any player! keep dreaming. Like wise Michael Owen wont happen as too injury prone.(4)(1)NO it wont happen, I agree.

There seems to be a lot of speculation linking Michael Owen to Portsmouth , whilst Owen stated he does not want to play for a championship side he still could possibly sign for the Fratton park outfit due to the fact they will be playing in league one.(3)(20)They've got no money they'd struggle to field un under 16 sideHave the Schools finished for the day already!!. This must have been posted by a kid - no chance.Fiddlesticks boy ! Hes going to BRIGHTON. Confirmed.We got more chance of signing Dr David Owen. Still this story made me chuckle

Barnsley boss Keith Hill is very close to bringing in two players over the weekend.
The first is midfielder David Bell from Coventry. City, who have been relegated to League 1, accepted a transfer request for the former Rushden and Luton player and could cost around £250,000.
The second deal will be Swindon defender Aden Flint. The 22 year old has impressed Hill in the last year with the League 2 champions and could cost the Oakwell side around £350,000.(6)(10)That will buy you a 3rd of Aden flint if your lucky!Please take David Bell he is awful, officially one of the worst players I have ever seen at Coventry, can't beat his man, can't cross and injury prone.Ill drive bell there myself , but this is a lie no one would want him if they ever watched himBell has got as much talent as michael mcindoh

Nigel Adkins has had 2 bids rejected for Crystal Palace's youngster Nathaniel Clyne. They are now considering a player plus money deal which would send Danny Butterfield back to the club where he spent a large amount of his career.(12)(7)Lol who thinks this stuff upWhat do you mean "Who thinks this stuff up"...This is actually one rumour thats realistic for Saints.The fact that Clyne is out of contract makes it laughableNo chanceWhy do people keep saying Clyne is out of contract so any payment is laughable? He is under 24 so a fee has to be paid and if a fee can't be agreed then it is set by tribunal. Clubs can still offer Fee's, and or players, like a normal transfer. Get your facts right before dissing other people.

With some sources suggesting that Liverpool are approaching up to 12 candidates for the vacant managerial job at the club it raises the question of who these men could be. The obvious candidates are Roberto Martinez, Andre Villas-Boas, Rafael Benitez, Fabio Capello, Pep Guardiola, Brendan Rodgers, Paul Lambert, Louis van Gaal and J√ľrgen Klopp. But the question that remains, who are the other 3 candidates? Rumour has it that Jose Mourinho could be in line after winning the La Liga with Real Madrid and possibly looking for a new challenge. The other two managers are unclear and various different sources continue to speculate. Some believe that either Steven Gerrard or Jamie Carragher, veterans of the club, could be asked to make the step up to player-manager but this is unlikely as the Liverpool officials want a bright young manager. FSG's main target is Pep Guardiola but would he cut short his break from football? And would he be able to repeat his success from Barcelona at Liverpool? All of this remains to be seen but at the present moment, Roberto Martinez and Andre Villas-Boas remain the bookies favourites.(9)(8)Who gives a monkeys?
Even Brendan Rodgers will not speak to them.Ye as if liverpool r gunna win anything again 4 next 10 years at least.Liverpool won the Carling Cup and got to the FA Cup Final with an average squad, it can only get betterYeah, winning the Carling cup...spending £100m just to beat a Championship team on penalties.Just going to ignore the fact they beat City & Chelsea to get there are you?

swansea have a transfer budget of around £25 million.....

why do people keep saying we can't afford anyone?(9)(15)How do you know how much they have to spend, we can all make up imaginary sums but most of us choose not to be so deluded.Make up sums? bck page of the local newspaper on wednesday that we have made 46 million from tv appearances, plus 12 million from promotion last year and about 25 million from the 40 million upfront fee we got from promotion plus tickets sales, merchandise sales, and other income! we have more than enough money !You cant afford anyone!Divide by 10Clearly guess work, Brendan Rogers is like Paul Lambert and with a club of similar size and financial clout.
Both have a healthy budget after a very successful season in premier. Both clubs are financially sound and get maximum revenue from season ticket sales, basically selling out, they both have good sponsor backing
However both are very astute managers and will spend sensibly targeting up and coming younger players, both enjoy great team spirit which has played a huge part in their success and will not want to disrupt that by going after big established stars that also come with big ego's.
Example Stoke city spent serious money last season and where did they finish, I suspect they will struggle next year because rumour has it that the owners have told Pulis to sell to generate any funds for new players. £8M for Crouch ? (10 goals) and both Holt - (15 goals ) Morrison & Graham all out scored him, and what did they pay for Kenwyne Jones(1 goal) and Cameron Jerome(4 goals)
So its not all about the price you pay for a player, more the right players for your squad and the right coaching.You, doubters write well, however, all of the sums add up! Considering the fact the swans already had a decent amount of money and weren't constrained financially before promotion and haven't spent too much this season, with revenues, ticket sales, promotion money, more money coming from staying in the league and money for finishing where we and bonuses for the fair play league, we have more than enough to compete financially!


18 May 2012 12:11:03
Rumours circulating that Redknapp could be able to completely transform his current Tottenham squad. Departures could include Cudicini, Gomez, Assou-Ekotto, Luka Modric (a possible target for Manchester United and City) and Gareth Bale (Barca bound) to fund his new signings. These signings could include Eden Hazard, Fernando Torres, Emilio Izaguirre and Yohan Cabaye.(6)(22)Cudicini and Gomez is out of contract, so they are free to go. Bale is not even close to going to Barcelona! Its a stupid rumours from a "reporter" in a tabloid.Emilio will not leave celticIn your dreamsPretty much all of this is nonsense

Footballers most loved player, Joey Barton is looking to move to a different league with Inter Milan being his most preferred choice. {Ed025's Note - a move to rugby league would be more apt..(7)(19)He wouldn't make Milan's reservesI think he should try wweInter? Honestly? Why on earth would Inter even know who Joey Barton is? Supposing they do know who he is - why on earth would they want him?!

He is as good as his footballing record suggests - lower mid-table at best...Load of rubbish...he is on the Chisora / Hay undercard....he hasn't realised yet that a boxing ref will stand back and allow his opponent to smack him back!! I think he will pull out though when he discovers that there will be no one to jump in to protect him....his opponent is little Jimmy Krankie and the smart money is on Barton getting knocked out in the first round.

Ipswich town are looking to strengthen their squad with the possibility of Colchester United keeper Ben Williams joining for a fee at around £500k. Whilst upfront Connor Wickham could be a possible loan signing for the tractor boys and there has been an enquiry from Ipswich town to Manchester United regarding Dimitar Berbatov.(4)(10)Berbatov to Ipswich! - Absolute Classic!Are the kids on half term in Ipswich or something - lots of bogus Ipswich rumours doing the rounds this week.Williams may well be as he said he is settled in east anglia so it will be u's ipst or naaaaaaaaaaaaarich but he is a free transfer

Colchester United are supposedly chasing Northampton Town hitman Akinfenwa for a supposed £100k. They are also chasing reading sensation Adam le Fondre due to their strong links with Reading. This fee is believed to be close to £2 million.(2)(16)We won't be selling Alf.Akinfenwa is out of contract!Why do people insist on posting rumors about le fond, hes loved by the Reading fans and will definitely feature in the first team next season. Hes not going anywhere. period.Yeah good one that considering robbie cowling put 4 million into training complex and stated it will be bosmans onlyLe fondre will not be going to colchester, keep dreaming, he is well above that standard.Why would ALF drop down to League One. He showed last year that he could do it in the Championship. He would definately get on the bench in the prem and your saying he'd prefer to drop two divisionsBayo's not 'out of contract'100k? they turned down 170k from crawley in march....


18 May 2012 11:53:15
Michael Owen seems to be attracting a lot of interest from numerous Premier League and Championship sides. Clubs that are considered to be racing for his signature are Everton (however unlikely due to his Liverpool roots), Reading, Southampton, Leeds and Charlton.(9)(12)Nobody will give him a normal contract - its only "pay for play". Has Owen played 10 games in a row since he left Liverpool(Real Madrid, Newcastle, Manchester U) ??Leeds cant even keep mcormac so how can they pay owens medical billsDon't think Owen will be fussed about his Liverpool "roots" - I think he just spent 3 years at Man United...

And he has already said he isn't interested in the ChampionshipChampionship clubs are out of luck as he doesnt want to drop down a league.You know this is nonsense because you have included Leeds. You cant even afford to keep your best players (McCormack and Snoddy) so how could you afford Owen! MuppetsNot a chance that he will go to Leeds, Charlton or especially Southampton.
His stables are in Cheshire, cant see him moving too far from that area - maybe that leaves Everton as the likely destination.He will not be interesting Charlton thats for sure, we have a transfer policy and he would not fall into it. Not saying dont want him far from it but, lets face it's not going to happen for Charlton is it?I can tell all of the people starting the owen rumours he is def not going to southampton or anywhere in England as he will sign a pay as you play with basic salary for Celtic. Once this is complete Celtic will evaluate their strike force for a possible depature (I am a saints fan but not looking to open up the silly Hooper rumours).

Further more Martinez will be the manager bar any last minute hic ups and DW has already spoken to steve Bruce about a possible return to Wigan.

Southampton are looking to load out younger brother of Swansea striker Sinclair to either Bournmouth or Donny.As far as i am aware owen is/was an everton fan, saying he won't go there because of his liverpool roots is ridiculous considering he joined man utd!Owen is an evertonian ..i am a liverpool fan but it is true he is a blueOwen's roots are Blue, he just played for Liverpool that's all.

With Yaya Toure's agent claiming that he could leave Machester City to find a 'new challenge' Man City will struggle to replace him as he proved priceless throughout the season and was thoroughly missed when he left for the African Cup of Nations. Possible replacements include Modric (not as strong as Toure and not as good defensively but is always a threat going forward) or could a player already in the Manchester City squad fill Toure's boots? Maybe James Milner who deserves a first team run out especially after his England call up or Nigel de Jong who is great defensively and strong but does he posses the playmaking abilities? His goal against Liverpool in the Carling Cup semi-final at Anfield suggests he does.(8)(4)

Michael Owen is expected to be on the radar of numerous Premier League and Championship sides including Everton (unlikely due to his Liverpool roots), Reading, Wigan and Charlton.(6)(7)His Liverpool roots mean nothing. He been a Man Utd bench and physio table warmer for last 3 years.Very strong rumour i've heard suggests Tony Pulis will take a gamble and offer a pay as you play deal!Same as above he is NOT going to Charlton!Everton manager is smarter that that, so are most other premier league managers, he's way past his best, constantly injured and more interested in Horse racing these days, maybe its his agent posting this rubbish on this site trying to drum up some offers.

Heard rumours of a Beckford/McCormack swap deal that could be in the offing. If true in any degree, could be the reason for McCormack rejecting his new deal.

Personally, I approve. McCormack, while impressive, has been inconsistent, something that Beckford, for all his flaws, never was when he wore a White shirt. He was consistently lazy, its true, but he consistently got in those areas and funnily enough it was always his name on the scoresheet. Warnock looking at rekindling the Beckford/Becchio combination. Again, I reiterate, only whisperings, and often these are spontaneously invented. I'll look into it.
wally(11)(4)As an LCFC fan - I approve this swapI think Beckford's wages will prevent this one happening. Cuddly Ken is a tightwad and I think he had a dig at Beckford when he left last time - no love lost there.

Bit of pace, but poor delivery, and doesn't have a trick to get past a defender.As O'neill bid less than a million for Davies in January and he's now been relegated and is 35 years old, I somehow doubt Sunderland would spend 6.5mil on him...As much as I want him to, I can't see Muamba being back for next seasonMark Davies not Kevin DaviesThere is no way Lee or Holden will stay at Bolton as saints have already agreed fees for themNo chance of Holden leaving if he was i will be to a club a lot bigger than SouthamptonChungy is not leaving and I've spoken to Stuart myself, he's definitely staying.

Everton's top 7 transfer targets

1.Steven Pienaar - 4m - Spurs
2.Steven Naismith - 2m - Rangers
3.Mohamed Diame - Free - Wigan
4.Martin Olsson - 3m - Blackburn
5.Junior Hoillett - Free - Blackburn
6.Balazs Megyeri - 800,000 - Olympiakos
7.Matt Phillps - 2.5m - Blackpool
8.Michael Owen - Free - Man Utd
9.Jonas Olsson - 1m - WBA
10.Romelu Lukaku - Loan - Chelsea(23)(19)Can you count?Good luck getting Olson for £1mTop 7 then you go and list 10? Maths is not your strong point.You'll have to pay Blackburn compensation for Junior Hoillett as his under 24.Would Everton have to sell first before they buy?Olsson is out of contract so your comment 'good luck on getting olson for £1m' i say good luck on getting £1m for himHoilet expected to go for 6million at tribunal and 5/6 bigger clubs after him, the olsons valuations are insultingOlsson has a year left. We'd be better off getting nothing next year and getting another season out of himA bit funny comming from a Everton fan :) - but if you get Pienaar and Naismith for 6 mill and have money to pay for them - you should be happy!Olson isn't out of contract get your facts straightSo which of Everton's players is being sold to fund all this? Baines? Fellaini? {Ed025's Note - none of them....he is saying they are targets, not that they will all sign..Jonas Olsson does indeed have one year left on his current deal and Albion would never sell him for a million! As one other posted said, it would be better to run down his contract than let him go for next to nothing. I think it would take a bid of 5m for Albion to part company with him now. Some people really need to get their facts right before posting.But that is 10! 2+2 = 5

Crawley Town interested in Enoch
Showunmi after being released by
Tranmere. After Crawley losing their
two tallys men Tubbs and Barnett, they
could do with an experienced striker that
can score goals.(10)(6)Why would you sign Enoch then? He does not score goals and has been a shadow of his former self since breaking his leg. Tranmere released him simply because he does not score.As a tranmere fan myself he is capable of scoring 10-13 goals a season he just didnt have the right players around him at tranmere and was injured most of this seasonShame he cant score goals though isnt it!He got a few last season

financial position to sell unless its
a real head turning offer, and if the
personal terms are life changing
then they wont open talks.

source stevenage site(6)(1)If your in such a good financial state as you claim you better start increasing your crowds otherwise you wont be able to afford players remember wage cap 65% of all income players wages so unless you ;ot increase you entrance fee nd cram as many away support in your away stand yes from personal expriance of being there 2 - 3 to a seat you wont surviveHope you go bust! and go back to your natural level The isthmian league north.Your both bitter people.
stevenage are a league team and wont be in the non league for a long timeIncrease crowd size? We wasn't even the smallest average crowd in League 1... I assume you want those with less like Bury & Rochdale to go bust and leave the upper tiers as well... or what about the 12 teams that are 'smaller' than us in League 2!! Oh, sorry did we also forget to say that we have no debt whatsoever... so unfortunately for those who really hate us (for whatever reason) we can't go bust.

Southampton planning swoop for Adam Johnson somewhere in the region of £8m. Adkins sees him as giving perfect balance on the right for Lallana.(18)(21)OH MY GOD.!!
Please let this be true.
Source.?It would all depend on his wages..if this rumour is true of course.Now this is one Saints rumour which seems believable!In my opinion Adam Johnson is one of the most underrated premier league players, City could and should easily be able to get £20+ million if they decide to sell him. And for his sake I hope he would go to a bigger club than Southampton.. It's a joke how he's not in the England squad reallyI am a saints fan but a lot of relations from manchester and they say there is some weight in this story and there is strong rumours coming out of the etihad but talking 6.5 million coyrWhy would Adam go to southhampton for a relegation battle? He's got the ability to be at a top club playing week in week out.I'm a saints fan, would love to see him at saints but can't see it happening, too good for us really and wages might be a problemDowning £20m v Johnson £6.5 - 8m ? it's a crazy world !

fletcher his staying at wolves .fletcher turns down a move to sunderland ,i hope jarvis and ohara stays ,other than that the rest of wolves players can leave iff i was stale i would build ,a team around those 3 players(3)(16)Very doubtful..I fully expect Fletcher and Jarvis to leave along with others.Flecher turned down the move to sunderland, but don't get your hoprs up, everton's aproach my get a very differant answer !All the prem quality players will be jumping ship, well all 2 of them Jarvis and Fletcher.Doubt Everton can afford Fletcher! they hardly have 10p to spend let alone 8-10 million {Ed025's Note - your valuation is well out...we would not pay more than he would only be a squad player for us..

So why would we loan out ou 2nd choice.You may get Vokes but will possibly cost more than that, don't reckon you will get De Vries due to Hennesseys injury though.Absolute rubbish.....considering henners is out until christmasVokes has signed for brighton on a permanent basis...and wolves no1 hennesey is vries is going nowhere...utter rubbish

Celtic are seriously about to make Scot, Grahame Dorrians a target for the left wing slot. The only consideration was that he was a Rangers fan as a kid but Lennon fancies Scots, Irish and Welsh, English accents in the dressing room in order to create a team work ethic which will carry his young champions squad into the Champions League. Lennon requires a left winger for more penetration and Ross Wallace is the back up option. This has come from a Celtic player today and is the truth.(3)(4)Can't see why any player would leave the premier league to join Celtic.Maybe they would get sick of losing all the time or they would want to play in the clWhy would he want to stay with a team who would class finishing tenth as a great season or got to celtic and have a chance of three trophies even if the standard of football is not as good

Swindon try end of season move Ludogorets Razgrad midfield Mladen Kaöćelan. Montenegro international who is finish contract in January share agent with Swindon menedzer Paolo Di Canio and Bulgarian press say move will go ahead. The money is no decided.(4)(1) we go again.
STATEMENT ISSUED YESTERDAY: The playing budget is noy yet decided. Paolo Di Canio will be buying ENGLISH players and intends to target Players from the first division and the championship.
Although theyu have said this I still think a move for O'Kane will now progress after last nights result and if Cheltenham fail at Wembley then a move for Pack is on the cards.Di canio has said 80% british, so that still allows for a couple of foreign signings which I think will do the squad good overall. (a couple of good unknown quantities if he can get them right)

Any Ipswich town rumours ed?(2)(10)Just have a look at Leeds rumours because Jewell seems to only go after our targets!

JordLUFCWhy would we go for your targets we have ambition not a selling club to Norwich like you are. As for your targets think you would find if you could read that we asked about ward in jan will we get him who knowsIpswich also had contact with Green in January. Said on here that Warnock didn't disclose his targets, so how would we know, that's it somebody posts them on rumours sites!


17 May 2012 22:20:22
A move from Ipswich for Huddersfeild's right back Jack Hunt hangs in the balance on whether Jewell get no1 target Ward.

And anyone who still beleives Ipswich are skint and have no money, we have a multi millionaire injecting money into the club and likely windfalls from the sell on clauses we have on people like trotter and rhodes.

We are likely to be able to pay a considerable amount more on wages than clubs like leeds (particularly with bates still there!)(4)(12)Joel Ward will be coming to Leeds dont worry about that :) Ipswich are a sunday league club compared to us and we can pay the wages, we just wont pay excessive wages and fees as we currently operate at a profit!

JordLUFCWell, we could match your wages, but as you say, Bates. You have to remember the appeal lies in the fans, stadium and his chum Pearce too. We are still in the front seat for the signing too, and he could sign tomorrow (Friday).
wallyYour multi-millionaire owner can only pump £6m in under the new laws.Jack Hunt is going to NorwichIpswich were had over £60m of debt and spent around 100% of turnover on wages in the last published accounts. The new FFP rules means they have to reduce costs not increase them and as a post above says there is limit of input of £6m this season for investors and £4m on lossesYou may have money, but will never eclipse a club as big as the mighty LEEDSLeeds not a big club. {Ed0y25's Note - {Ed025's Note - yes they are..This thread makes me smile. Our feeder club (Leeds) and our impoverished neighbours (Ipsch) squabbling over sub standard players and who has more money to spend on wages.

Marcus Evans is using Ipswich as nothing more than a marketing tool for his business empire, while Bates is using Leeds to line his pockets. Neither will be blowing big cash on anything this summer.

Meanwhile, Norwich, still with Lambert at the helm will be building our squad to take us to the next level and a top half finish next season.

Have fun scrapping it out in mid table anonymity once more.Here pops up the canary, lambert wants to leave your lot asap as you will get found out next year as nothing but over achieverscwith league 1 standard players!Why does he hide is he the elephant man and he has wasted 60 million on ipswich down so no more funds and u r over 100% on fair play so bye bye bulllard

COYRNo. Just no.Even though he said championship aint an option? oh right.Ye coz a player who can still play in prem would drop down 2 leagues n wat would u pay him with penuts pompy have no moneyDo pompey ever learn? No wonder these problems contiune-there own faultI dont know what less likely, pompey getting owen or announcing a buyer tomorrow...Pompey wont even be around long enough to see him playBiggest joke i heard all dayPay up Pompey, Pompey pay upIts not our fault. The football league fappt is rubbish. They let us have all the owners. We are being picked on because we have the best fans in all the leaguesWhat a dog nut he wont even go to championship team he said so in an interview on SSN as for being bought thought that was suppose to happen weeks ago cant have many weeks left now and youll be shut down for good hahaDont listen to that lot up the road no passionOwen said he does not want to play in the championship , Portsmouth play in league one now so it still could happen.Pay Up Pompey.Hook,line and sinkerThis is clearly a scummer posting this too make Pompey look stupid. Every pompey fan knows this we cant afford Owens big toe.I rally hope you do find a new owner who really does have some money, our rivalry is the best , you could not call Saints v Brighton a real Derby (even though they think it is!) Let us hope you have some good news soon. COYRI dunno if this is a Saints fan or not, to be honest there are actually pompey fans that are this delusional!Something is going to happen at Pompey, read the Pompey news MA is making plans for for next season.

Newcastle are busy lining up replacements for Demba Ba and have FC Twente striker Luuk de Jong at the top of their shopping list.
Ba, who signed on a free transfer from West Ham last summer, has a £7m release clause in his contract and could quit St James' Park in the summer with both Chelsea and Arsenal interested in the striker.
Tottenham are also thought to be interested, although he will wait to see whether Harry Redknapp’s side qualify for next season’s Champions League before making any firm decisions.
Should Chelsea win the Champions League final against Bayern Munich on Saturday, Spurs will drop into the Europa League, the same competition Newcastle will line up in August.

Others will also be tempted by the Senegal international, who scored 16 goals last season and was instrumental to Newcastle’s success and top five finish.
Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has not given up hope of persuading Ba to stay, but he is not convinced the 26-year-old’s is as happy as he was on Tyneside.

The Magpies have scouted de Jong several times over the last two years and believe they will be able to get him for the £7m Ba‚Äôs departure would bring.
The 21-year-old, who already has seven Dutch caps, scored 25 goals for Twente last season and manager Steve McClaren has admitted it will be hard for them to keep him.

(source Daily mail)(3)(13)De jong would cost a lot more than 7m

Possible Stoke City signings
Olsson - blackburn - stoke - 4m
Defoe - spurs - stoke - 8-10m
Jarvis and Fletcher - wolves - stoke - 11m

Kenwyne Jones
Ricardo fuller - free
Tom Soares - free
Danny Higginbotham
Danny Collins
Salif Diao - free(6)(18)£11m for Fletcher AND Jarvis ? In your dreams!I am a massive Wolves fan, and am conceded to the fact that at least 1 of those 2 will be leaving, but not for as little as that price, 11 mil probably wouldnt buy fletcher alone...Fletcher is turning sunderland down so hell be staying at wolves but you may get jarvis but he also loves the club
aaron m daviesI love it when someone says 'he loves the club' on here :-) How many times do we read it ? Jarvis will be away as soon as a decent offer lands his way.Wolves have said to stoke that 20mill is needed to sign bothStoke- peter crouch 10mil, kenwyne jones 9mil' stoke wont pay anywhere near 11mil' if they did fletcher would then b stokes record signing and i cant see that happening , stoke could buy a better player for alot lessBetter player for less? fletcher has scored more then Jones and Crouch. Those that think he isn't a better player either know nothing about football or are just biased as he plays for another midlands club


17 May 2012 19:24:48
Saints 2 sign every1 because they hav loads of money and will there4 win the prem league by default as other teams won't have players to make a team. This counts to every team in the world! Because we are so awesome.(17)(25)WOW...Seriously people are obsessed with taking the mick out of Saints! Seems like Pompey fans dont have much else to do.Get a life.Made me laugh. They do think they are better than they actually areNo they dont, they are just excited about the prospect of prem football, give them a breakAs a Canaries Supporter congrats to the Saints for achieving a second straight promotion to Premier League to repeat what we achieved last season.
A good lesson for all promoted clubs is what Swansea and Norwich achieved this season using the same squad with 4/5 good quality young players added to squad, keeping the togetherness and team spirit that got both clubs promoted.
The alternative was QPR, splashing big cash on fee's and wages and in some cases players toward the end of their careers with massive inflated ego's about how good they actually are Barton, Zamora, Bothroyd, Wright Phillips etc , and they barely survived.Obviously written by a skate or a 12 year old who only goes to watch once a year!!If saints are so good why didnt they storm the championship? lucky to finish 2nd see you next season see if you can handle it with the big boys.Thank you canaries supporter.

It's easy to misconstrue immature over-exuberance on a football forum for arrogance. No one here is arrogant, most people just excited to be back in the prem, and Norwich and Swansea have allowed some to dream big, no need to get all worked up and cry about it, it's just a rumour website.

Didn't Matt Mills join you for premiership football?...LOLThere are lots of similarities with the blue half of Manchester for Leicester. Long established club, play in blue, backed by lots of foreign money with no long term interest in our game, a new stadium and of course obnoxious up their own dirt box supporters.

I have it on good authority from a friend who works at the etihad that Southampton have enquired about Adam Johnson and are currently the front runners. It is understood that Johnson is keen to leave MFC in the midst of him being overlooked for the Euros.(17)(18)You're welcome to Johnson. Been relegated 2 seasons running with different teams haha so u will probably get relegated too!Yeah right, you can pay the sort of wages he is currently getting at Man City and he ain't going to drop his salary level, this rumour is in your imagination I thinkI don't think we'll get ADAM Johnson realistically but this person above me seems to be talking about ROGER Johnson who is not called adam and adam has not been relegated twiceNah, I've heard he wants to leave us too. Not sure he'd go to saints but from what I hear they would be able to pay him. He hasnt done much for us this season, let him go!Could get him cheap and if he was guaranteed first team football I could see him being prepared to take a wage drop. It would still push Saints wage budget however, so it will be interesting to see if either party are prepared to give in.

Personally I'd like him at Saints. I know he hasn't done much for City but he is a quality player and would be solid in the prem. We're not looking for world beaters, just solid players to keep us moving forward. :)Few premiership teams could match his arab wages - certainly not southamptonHe will be coming home to sunderlandAdam Johnson is signing for Sunderland. He still has house at Easington from when he played for Boro. However...this deal depends on the asking price in comparison to Aiden Mcgeady at Spartak. O'Neill values them both at similar levels- He worked with Mgeady at Celtic but Johnson is younger.As a saints fan this rumour is ridiculous ! 1. We won't pay his wages 2. He's just won the premier league with city 3. Why would he come to a club who's just got promoted when he will be playing champions league football AGAIN , 4. People saying he doesn't play any games for city , he's played 38 games goals 9 assist 7 I think that's enough to say you'veade a contribution to the team . So in my opinion is saints fans have got to be more realistic as much as I would love him I can't see it happening

Brighton are close to agreeing a cut price deal for Norwich City's Andrew Crofts(14)(5)Is Bridcutt part of the deal?Will not be cut price.He will cost u 750.000 + always plays 4 walesNot cut pricedCrofts would be great signing with bridcutt part of the deal as crofts is far the complete player than bridcutt, as for cost of him he wont be too much as he is now falling down the pecking order at norwich and he is keen to get 1st team football, hopefully at the amex :)

Michael Owen to Stoke?(21)(18)Far too short to play for StokeAnother has been !!!Would be a good signing for a club like stoke but aren't they already very very saturated with forwards?

Off the top of my head...
K Jones

I'm not an expert on stokes transfers but surely they would have to shift a few of these before they started bringing in more forwards, particularly ones on Owen's wages?
FullerFuller, Jones and Jerome are all possibly going. Fuller out of contract, Jones and Jerome out of favour.Actually there is truth in this. Pulis a huge Owen fan

Fuller and Jones are nailed on to leave

Both Aaron Wilbraham and Zak Whitbread are set to be offered a contract by Milwall. In saying this both players are attracting interest from numerous championship clubs and will probably wait to see what sorts them best.(7)(10)Rumour is that Zak has been offered a deal from Sunderland and Wilby could go to Watford.Whitbread does have a few premiership teams after him tooThey have not been released by Norwich yet, and Whitbread said he would love to stay at Norwich , so hang on a minute. {Ed013's Note - Check SSN, it says it on there that they are released}Zak is signing for southamptonMy mistake I should have read NCFC homesite first, quite surprised Whitbread has been released, althoiugh injury prone he's a half decent defender, so Lambert must have another centre half on his radar...

We will do what we always do and that's buy young talent from the ages 18 to 24 priced around 15 million max on one player (because we dont have 30 million to spend on one player) and make them into first
classy established premier league players.(8)(7)And then sell them ;)Well saidAnd forever be in Arsenal's shadow.

owen will sign for a club around the cheshire area due to his interest in horses etc, and doesnt want to move. so i would expect him to sign for stoke maybe, or another club around the midlands maybe villa.(13)(3)If you think owen can walk into any club you are deluded,he will get a pay as you play deal of some mug.I think at this stage Owen will take any offer at a prem club. He has high wages, injury doubts and is on the old side. His horse interests can be adopted all round the country so it won't be a problem. But getting an interested prem club might be the barrier.Owen is set to retire after only making 52 appearances in three seasons at united and will not sign for anyone unless they r challenging for major honours in the league or Europe, and out of these teams who would be willing to sign him??
No oneI have it from a reliable source from stoke who states that owen will be wearing red and white of stoke next season on pay as you play deal, pulis is a huge owen fan and would have signed for stoke if utd hadnt have give him a contract now he wants to stay in the area of cheshire, so stoke is an ideal club for him at this the very near end of his career.

reading want dobbie from swansea who is currently on loan to blackpool and they are planning a 1million bid(17)(16)Reading want a proven striker at the top level, not one that didn't cut it and is alright in the Championship.Dobbie isn't really a striker mate. Reading aren't going to buy him instead of a striker. I'm a Saints fan so have followed you relatively closely this season and you need an out and out goalscorer. If Reading are interested in Dobbie it will be as an attacking, creative player not a goalscorer.

Can see them signing Dobbie and a goalscorer since their defence is relatively solid and they just need a few creative and attacking players.Reading will get chamakh

Reading are flush with top keepers. Federici is the clear number one. McCarthy is Eng U21 and tipped to play for the full national side in the future, and then they have Mikkel Anderson who is also highly rated and looking for a season loan in the Championship next season.Subs bench, yeah he will go for that I think not !!!Federici is to good for a sub keeperFederici is better than Paul Robinson

I would think he would like to stay up north.He has already said he won't go to the Championship so Brighton won't happen. Don't think it will be Saints either though.

Fulham look placed to sign Jordan Rhodes from Huddersfield for a sum of around £3.5m


After we turned down 6m in Jan? Don't be daft, he's going to Newcastle United IF we stay in league One for 6m plus Nile Ranger, he'll stay to try lead us to the Prem otherwise(10)(21)6m stop living in dreamland if you got 3.5m for him that is an amazing price for someone who is unproven at prem level, he will leave if you dont get promoted and i guarantee it will be for much less than 6mSo £6m plus Nile Ranger values him at about £8.5m. Just under what Arsenal paid for Podolski, the German international and regular scorer in the Bundesliga. As a fan of a club who puts over the top valuations on players, dont ever moan again about how poor the national side is because we have no young players coming through. Stupid prices for a 3rd Division player is what forces clubs to go overseas for their players.I am a newcastle fan from Scotland and watch him a lot and i would say that he is worth that! he is quick, strong and knows where the goal is!Didn't arsenal pay £10 million for chamberlin an unproven at a higher level, league 1 Southampton player last year. Wonder how he's doing.Noone bidded for him in january, only west ham enquired in which you said 4m+ but your valuation has risen now but you stil over rate him, he is only another version of beckford, great for leeds in league 1 scoring like 35 goals then rubbish in the prem for everton and average in champ for leicester, and beckford is better thsn rhodes so dont get your hopes up! 3m max! {Ed013's Note - Beckford didn't do too bad for Everton with a return of 10 goals when he was a sub most of the time}Hes going for 3.5 so stop thinking hes worth more than he actually isWouldn't pay more than 3.5m for unproven 3rd tier player. Toonlad9There are a few clubs trying to get him including Norwich, but stop talking nonsense about £6M, you quote you turned down 6M in January what evidence are are you using - Newspapers? - the reality is that he's likely to go for around £3+ add on's, and even that amount is a major gamble for any premier club because there is always a doubt that he will not be able make the step up to that level.Walcott 13m
the ox 12m
both these players were unproven in lower league so by my reckoning rhodes who has scored 40 goals plus 6 at under 21 level should command a fee of over 6m easy
jorden henderson 20m
torres 50m
a player is only worth what another club is willing to pay and being proven doesnt gaantee said player will be a sucscess.And rhodes is a much better player than beckford ever was

Vicente? Buckley? Lua Lua? Bridcutt? Calderon? the list goes on they're all quality. As for the money, we have a rich chairman who loves the club. If you're a Barnsley fan then that statement is hilarious!Why would Greer want to join a relegation dodging team when he could play for a team that's going to fighting for a top 6 finish next season...Oh dear, I presume you support palace, as only a palace fan could be so deluded. No money? That's why we have a £93 million stadium that has just been named the best new venue in the world. We have plenty of money. And ambition. And fans (we can actually fill our ground).

Mustapha Dumbuya to Crystal Palace is a done deal and will be announced next month.

Palace have had a bid for Nick Powell rejected by Crewe, it is though that they value him at around £750,000, way more than Palace offered.

Another done deal for Palace is the season long loan signing of a Manchester United youngster. It is unknown who but if reports are to be believed then it will be Will Keane.

After having a bid of £500,000 for Crawley Town's Kyle McFadzean rejected last week it is believed that Palace will now up their offer to £700,000 to see whether new manager Sean O'Driscoll will be tempted to sell.(4)(10)Nick powel will go for way more than 750,000 more like 3 million3 million lol! you live in a dream worldNick Powell is one of the hottest properties and is destined for better things. Crewe have sold a lot worse players for a lot more money than £750k. Can't see this happenning when scouts from the Prem are watchinhg his every move.Palace are after Clayton not PowellAll seem pretty believable but we dont need more defenders


17 May 2012 14:58:03
Charlton will look to bolster their squad and challenge Bradley Wright-Phillips for his starting place with the addition of Sam Baldock, providing West Ham get promoted.

The youngster, who arrived for an undisclosed fee last summer (thought to be around 1.5m) has failed to adapt to the Iron's current system and has found himself rooted to the bench most games.

With Chris Powell and the Addicks team recently coming back from their holiday in Vegas, the manager sees now as a perfect time to recruit Baldock, who sees The Valley as the perfect place for first team football and no need to a huge relocation.(9)(7)We may loan him out if we get promoted dont think he would be soldThis would be against Charlton's transfer policy and simply will not happen unless he is sold to Charlton. Charlton dont have pots of money to throw at up and coming players esp when we have our own forwards coming through.

Michael Owen is a target for at least 10 clubs. Its believed that 2 sides from the MLS have been in touch, as well as 1 from the Australian A league. My sources also tell me that a far eastern club have contacted Owen's agent. The rest of the teams in for the experienced striker are English.

Stoke City are also preparing to bid £7m for the Derby duo John Brayford and Jeff Hendrick. But with both players being first teamers the Rams could hold out for £9m.(12)(9)7 mil? Our best players but i'd snap your fingers off!

The Rams would be prepared to bid £350,000 for the injury prone player.(6)(16)Paterson would not leave Burnley for 350,000.Nope. He's in talks with Derby. Its close between Bristol City and Derby. Watford no where near.Nope. Jacobs close to joining Derby, Clough can confirmIm not a derby fan but why would anyone snub a team for watford LOLOLOLJacobs close to joining ramsBurnley turned down 2.5m in the summer .. 350,000 ....... good one.We finished higher in the table, why wouldn't he want to come to an up and coming team where he'd play? Who are Derby anyway?Also ex watford manager aidy boothroyd is northampton manager so may put in a good word for us. also watford hav a track record of giving young players a chance. he d b guaranteed first team football aswelMate you finished above us on goals scored... A word in? What you rather have? A "word in" or more money? Play infront of 14000 people a week in a falling apart stadium or 28000 in a big stadium. Who are Derby? Who are Watford? Remind how many times tiny Watford have won the first division? And its not exactly like you can out wage us can you xD. I know people and his move will completed very soon (to derby).He would be guarenteed first team football at Derby. Cloughs said we need a rw and he'd slot in perfectly. Cloughs also hinted the deal is very close. Who are watford, st ground, no fans, no history, and arguably take the worst away followings in the divison XDDDDDerby fans were absolutly awful when we went there, not getting behnd their team once during the whole game. and seeing as you were in the top half of the table at the beggining of the season and we were in the bottom 3 it makes it all tht more impressive that you got beaten by 'tiny' watford! stop living in the past derby fans. at least watford don't hav the lowest points total for a premier league side ever! real players choose a side for enjoying to play rather than more money. he wouldn't still be at northampton if he cared much about money. if your just gonna throw money at everything i hope you lot go the way of portsmouth. he might well go to derby but 'tiny' watford still have a chance.What are you on about? We have a bottom 6 club wage budget yet we're not. You say lowest points total but then say stop talking about the past? Wow contradicting yourself much. I can guarentee we'll finish higher. We've got no debt at all so how can we go the way of Pompey. Face it, Jacobs is coming to us and you're just jealous. FACT. Look on ssnWatford are small tiny has been club. Never do anything. Definite relegation candedates next term.Beaten? What about on the second game when we beat you? You beat us and it was deserved. Jacobs will go to Derby im afraid. I like Watford in all fairnessMate we've got no chance with jacobs. Northampton offered him 2k a week and we cant afford that. Bad times for Watford im afriad. Can see us selling some big players this summer as well. Derby fans are so annoying thoughWatford dont need to sell so i dont get where you re getting that infomation from. any sales will be for the best interests of the club and are too good to turn down. if we needed money we would have sold marriappa last january. we re always tipped as relegation candidates, making it all the better when we continuously beat teams like derby. have you even thought tht sky sports news could be wrong? they do report a lot of rumours as dead certs. it is most likely that he will go to derby, but nothing has been signed yet so no need to get so smug. if watford are a 'never do anything' club, wat does tht make derby then? both teams aren't going to win anything soon but i don't get why derby fans are acting all high and mightyBtw just to mention the past. i believe wattford came second in the top division and were close to winning it and played in Europe and impressed everyone in it. plus our club legends are national heroes like john Barnes. and we are very much on the up as our owner bassini is planning to expand our stadium capacity by rebuilding the stand that's not there. plus watford have a better squad and youth players than derby so we are clearly going to progress more than u. oh and the fact that derby are terrible and have no future plans and are an unambitious club

Michael Owen to join either Celtic or Liverpool.

Would mean Gary Hooper moving to Swansea if he went to Celtic.(10)(30)Brighton 4/1 favs to sign him.No it wouldnt lol hooper has already said he plans on staying and lennon has already said wee r looking for another striker .

get facts right

daviebhoy08Neither would want him,was a decent player maybe ten years ago.Owen has said he doesnt want to play in the Championship, so he wont be going to Brighton

Lee Chung Yong, winger of Bolton to Everton, out nearly all season following horrific leg break in pre season. Previous seasons showed class and bolton struggled without. Happy to stay but keen to carry on in prem if offers. Moyes big fan(19)(3)Everton don't have the kind of cash Bolton will want for Lee.Bolton dont need to sell there best players and Holden and Lee said they're staying , although Bolton said they wont consider anything less than 10m each for them.


17 May 2012 13:59:29
Newcastle United info.
Looking at Adam Clayton (Leeds) replacement for Danny Guthrie if leaves in summer good young centre mid, excellent squaddie/backup
Aidy White also at Leeds potential move, looks like losing Danny Simpson, allowing santon back to right back and Aidy white to left. lots of pace, should suit prem league. But Wigan also keen. ( suit there wing back style)
Jacob Butterfield another move
And finally looking for another winger to provide for Cisse and Demba with pace (Jonas losing his pace), potentially Jarvis in.(11)(9)White not as good as people thinkWarning from a Leeds fan. White has got potential and bags of pace as mentioned BUT his final ball can be poor and decision making can be frustrating. Hope we can thrash out a deal with him but if he decides to leave, I hope he joins Newcastle. Great fans and a good manager.This is a bit of the mark, simpson will leave as newcastle wont risk losing players for nothing if he doesnt agree a deal hell be sold however santon will stay at left back because guttierrez is better at protecting a defence than ben arfa also newcastle will sign matt debuchy from lille for 6 million before the euros start with sagna injured he is frances number 1 rb; source; just ask ed1 more thing newcastle wont sign a winger they have marveaux, obertan, guttierez, ben arfa, ferguson, sammy ambeobi, and they currently operate a 4-3-3 formation with ba or cisse playing on left


17 May 2012 13:57:07 there any news about Jon Stead and Albert Adomah leaving Bristol City?(6)(7)I got news about this it's not gonna happen


17 May 2012 13:53:08
It's very knowlegeable of you to be able to speak on behalf of Southampton FC by knowing they don't want him. You are right though, he showed no loyalty to The Saints, when most players always do......oh, hang on, nobody does - so the next player we do sign is only coming because we are his best current offer - and he is not showing loyalty to the club he is leaving.(1)(4)

As a big tottenham fan Id like to see levy being in jan vertonghen,klass-huntelaar,sniedjer,adebayor on loan again??,i see luka modric is causing a upset again let's sell him now and get the 40 plus mil for him. Now ship out Saha,nelson, and sell Bentley 7mil, dos santos 6mil,bassong 6mil,Defoe 10mil???,I see nani wants out of united maybe spurs and united may do a deal between nani and modric plus united give us cash lol coyyyssssssss(8)(17)£7m for Bentley, are you sure? He has failed to hold down a spot anywhere and the only way to move him on is on a free.Bentley 7m are you insane?I'm sure you would like to see this, but it won't happen. Your valuations are way off (£7 million for Bentley?!) and although Spurs are undoubtedly a big club Sneijder effectively has his choice of clubs. He won't come to you. Also, with financial fair play rules on the horizon Adebayor will be sold, not loaned out.7mil bentley, dos santos and bassong 6mil . what are you smoking ?Bentley £7m....seriously.If Nani leaves United, it won't be for Tottenham.Sorry I meant to put 4 mil for Bentley lol {Ed013's Note - Spurs will let him go on a free to get rid of his wage}Most will go for hardly anything as you got no money and want the wage structure down. Sneider wants champions league football every year not once in a blue moon....I also think these prices are unrealistic, because the transfer market is in a major slump that is being disguised by a just handful of 'money no object' clubs. If they are not in the hunt for a player then the price he can command is likely to be much less than most fans think he is worth.

From that perspective it is not only Bentley that might be overpriced, but all these players.

Spurs sold Defoe for £6m when he was 4 years younger than he is now, so I don't see anyone paying more than that for someone that will be 30 in October.

Giovani has disappeared off everybody's radar and it is hugely unlikely that he will attract more than a nominal fee and certainly no more than the £4m he cost.

Bassong is a much better player than most Spurs fans recognise, but he is not absolutely top class and in the current market £6m is probably more than anyone that might want him could afford to pay.

That leaves Modric. £40m may be what Levy wants for him, but will anyone pay it? It is all down to whether Chelsea still want him. United are obviously keen too, but I see no signs that the cash-strapped Glazers can pay anything like that money unless it includes a player exchange in which the United player is similarly over-priced.

By the way, a wish or a dream is not a rumour.
KM7 million for bentley, really.Defoe is on a free transfer! And most likely to join new boys readingMay want to review your values for a start...Spurs would not pay Sjneiders wages never mind the fee he would command...Adebayor is still a struggle for them at the minuteIm a big tottenham fan and your and embarrassment.

Blair Sturrock set for a move to either

17 May 2012 12:24:04
Alright Ed.

Want to disprove/prove some Fulham rumors i have heard over the last couple of days.

Firstly, i have heard that Dembele is in talks with spurs and that a part exchange deal is being thrashed out? Any confirmation?

I have also heard that we are leading the pack to sign Rhodes from Huddersfield, how close actually are we?

We were also interested in Narsingh, Assaidi and Chadli, the talk of this seems to have gone quiet, any news?

Also, Dempseys future has been in the balance a while, but recently talk has completely died down, is this due to no interest, or are clubs in negotiation?

Cheers.(2)(6)About half of the clubs in the Premiership are linked with Jordan Rhodes at the moment. Nothing is going to happen there until after their playoff final

Doncaster are interested in Freddy Eastwood. They turned Billy Sharp into 1 of the most in demand strikers in the football league after not scoring often and they believe they can do same with Eastwood(10)(13)Sharp was already a proven goalscorer before he went back to Sheffield United.
Eastwood was also a proven goalscorer before he left Southend.
He'd be a good signingExcept Sharp was good at Scunny before that, as far as I can remember Eastwood scored a free kick vs Man U. That was it!Sharp was the 'forgotten man' after leaving Scunny and him and Eastwood came joint top scorers in League 1 at some stageWell he couldnt hit a barn yard door when he played for wolvesSOD turned Billy into a good player....Saunders can't turn a corner!

Southampton's Jason Puncheon has held talks with both South London clubs Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic over a possible move.

He favours Crystal Palace according to my source.(16)(8)So he'd rather play for a team with less money than charlton, worse players and manager and facilities, a worse fanbase and stadium and palace will be fighting for survival and charlton will be pushing for playoffs because i know potential signings which look promising!And people say southamptons fans are arrogant. charlton just got promoted from league one i wouldnt assume that they are going to dominate if i were youI'll assume that we'll finish above Palace, if you want to call that arrogant it's up to you.He is in a word, TROUBLE. so no thanks, he might want to come to Palace but we want player who share the dream and not wannabee big time charliesPipe down charlton, beating league 1 fodder for the last few seasons means nothing


17 May 2012 12:40:25

QPR have a strong interest in Wayne Bridge(11)(18)Talking rubbish. george baldock is at MK DONS.Leeds would never sign Kitson and Ward is still deciding where to goThe only relible sauce you have comes in a bottleDo you mean SAM Baldock. Who signed for West Ham and is not still at MK Dons.Your posts are definitely relible. They are certainly not reliable.George Baldock plays for Milton Keynes. His brother Sam plays for Wet Spam. As for the rest, rubbish

news coming from swansea is that they are preparing a 2.5m plus lita or moore for marvin emnes and they are also said to be interested in wolves duo jarvis and fletcher but fletcher seems to be priced abit to high for the swans so only jarvis could sign. also interested in 3 defenders ( 2 cb and 1 lb) 2 midfilders ( sigurdsson or goossens, and someone with muscle and height) and 2 strikers ( lacina traore, owen , simon cox, sturridge) all names been throw around at the liberty stadium ! WATCH THIS SPACE!(8)(14)Have Swansea got ten million budget ? because that is what Wolves want for Jarvis and priced Flectcher the same.Jarvis to Swansea-now that is funny.Swansea can't afford The Sig.

Aleksandar Tunchev
Will Keane-Loan
Jamie Proctor

They also looking at:

Simon Church
Nick Powell
Alex Clayton
Lee Barnard
George Boyd
Luke Freeman
George Baldock
Henri Lansbury(3)(22)Either Alex Clayton has slipped under my radar, or you are mistaking 'Adam' or 'Max' Clayton of Leeds and Crewe respectively, and I doubt you'll sign either of them.
wallyAdam Clayton is off to BurnleyAdam Clayton ?? what the U2 guitarist? Do you mean Max Clayton and surely you mean Sam Baldock of West Ham and not his brother George. Christ i hope your homework is better than your rumours.Actually sam baldock's younger brother george is still at MK dons and is a decent prospect. not my post btw!


17 May 2012 12:26:43
Some interesting news from Stoke this morning

The Defoe/Huth deal is fairly common knowledge within football circles at the moment so hardly breaking news but looks very likely.

Fuller has not been offered the 3 year deal he wanted and will leave the club in June. Sunderland and Wigan have shown an interest.

Another player to interest Sunderland is Kenwyne Jones a previous long term target of O'Neill at Villa. QPR also keen on the Trinidad striker who looks certain to leave.

Stoke are rumoured strongly to be one of several clubs monitoring Michael Owen - they did make an approach when he joined Man U

Joey Barton is another player that Stoke are keeping tabs on. Pulis again tried to sign him previously.

Matt Jarvis as reported in several media sources looks certain to be Stoke's first signing.

Expect a lot of fringe players to leave the Britannia in the coming weeks.

Martin Olsson as reported previously is interesting the Potters as is Blackburn's Jake Kean as Thomas Sorensen could be set to leave.(6)(7)Spurs have tied up Vertonghen so they won't be going after Huth. Whether Defoe would move to Stoke is another issue, I think he is looking to moveStoke are skint... no chance unless they sell before they buy...I have heard the Kenwyne Jones back to Sunderland rumour is pretty strong. His kids are still at a private school in Durham and he thinks he has unfinished business there. He never wanted to leave!Stoke are skint........:-) Stoke are one of the few solvent clubs in the Prem you fool with millions behind them. Coates has said the club need to shift out the dead wood before new players come in which only makes sense. Defoe agreed a loan move to Stoke in Jan btw


17 May 2012 12:26:13
with the news of Owen not being given a new contract with man united, swansea city have shown intrest if the player takes a wage cut. It seems the Owen would be intrested to joining a lower level premiership club.(4)(10)I like the team they have done very well and for all the fans sakes i hope this doesn't happen. owen will cause a buzz at first but he's just not got it and more and will milk the life out of the club with his wages just like at newcastle"It seems the Owen would be intrested to joining a lower level premiership club."............... - as long as he isn't expected to play any football

Reading FC are set to make an 'audacious' bid for Jermain Defoe. Source - Reading Chronicle
IMO it's not that audacious. With his desire for 1st team football, wages not being a problem with the new takeover, also the love he has for London, the short distance from Reading makes the bid a lot more plausible.(12)(10)It is audacious .. very. Reading have 0% chance of signing him. he cost a few bob and is on 50kAll depends on wages. Reading have spoken to Jnr Hoilett's agent about his free transfer BUT wages are a problem.

I would expect the same with Defoe.

Credit to Reading tho, they're prepared to spend but on the right type of player. I think they'll do OK next season.Ok, why is it that saints fans are told to get real when saying ridiculous things but it is credit to reading?? they are being linked with as many players and as stupid signings!


17 May 2012 11:35:27
millwall are going to make a double bid for ryan hall and also bilel moshni of southend £500,000 is what they want to pay for the 2, southend holding out for more though. also dont be surprised if millwall sign loick pires from welling joe gallen been 2 watch him couple times now and will be very keen on going to the den for next to nothing(5)(2)Hall = 800k mohsni = 1mill. try againYou don't quite understand how buying players from lower divisions work, the lower the division, the lower the fee as they haven't proven themselves at a higher level, plus the smaller clubs cannot afford to turn it down, half a mill at that level for those two sounds about right, they would have to be spectaculor PL quality to get 1.8 million!I think you are deluded if you think you can get Mohsni and Hall for 500k think again!!

David Buchanen has today signed a 2 year contract extension with Tranmere. Rovers player of the season had attracted interest from a number of other clubs however has decided to pledge his future to the Wirral club.

Plus you all keep forgetting that you're not a big club anymore...Haha as if you had the money to pay him for being constantly injuredHe possibly refused to comment becasue he didnt think it was worth denying such nonsense. So after nearly going bust and dropping down to League 1, because of paying silly wages, Leeds would go down the same route again would they?No chance.Can't see it. We can't afford 50k a week and it wouldnt be worth it anyway.

with Owen now a free agent anyone with decent stables nearby will be trying to sign him , would like to see him at saints to add a bit of premier quality to the squad(3)(14)Owen will be joining Bristol CityStop it. seriously, no. not what we need at all. from a southampton SEASON TICKET HOLDER.I agree with the above, as another saints season ticket holder i really dont want Owen.
Wages too high, injured too often.
There are much better options available.As a squad member if pay as you play deal would be good signing still only 32 an better than barny or connolly

Steve Bruce lined up to replace Paul Lambert at Norwich, second choice Lee Clarke(11)(13)Shocker of a manager. I hope he goes there!Clarky deserves a crack at the premSorry to break the news to you, but Lambert aint leaving. Solksjaer to Villa and sounds like Capello or Martinez to Liverpool. West Brom and Wigan not big enough to tempt Lambert.

Michael Owen confirms that he has not been offered a contract at Man Utd. Will see the possibility of him joining Brighton to once again flood the rumour mill(11)(19)Southampton have already sounded Owen
about joining them in the Prem. Can't see him wanting to join Brighton in League 1.Micheal owen has had possibly 1 of the most progressive careers in footballerAgree,so he won't be interested in joining
Brighton then,no need for him to take any backward steps now.Good luck to him anyway.How clueless are you? Brighton are in the Championship you moron!

QPR not a bigger club than Saints in any way shape or form. {Ed025's Note - oh yes they are..(19)(19)Bloody hell what does it matter whos bigger than who? (Insert your own jokes here)...What matters is how they perform next season in the Premier League!Oh no they're not.
Sorry Ed,just had to.Ed i am not a Southampton fan, what are your reason for thinking QPR are a bigger club then Southampton {Ed001's Note - I think he means in terms of money to spend, certainly can't see any other measure they could be considered bigger. Southampton have a bigger fanbase for sure.}No, i agree, they arent... saint have bigger stadium much better facilities and a larger fanbase. qpr a smaller team in london. wish people would stop putting saints down, just because they got relegated... so are west ham, leicester, leeds nottingham forest, newcastle (2 yrs ago) and the like all small clubs now? i cannot condone all of theses southampton fans who are saying we will sign every player, but it is to do with the excitement. lets face it two seasons ago we were playing hartlepool and dagenam and redbridge. this season we are playing arsenal, city and united!! Stop putting saints down and saints fans if you want to be arrogant do it on a saints forumFrom a neutral Southampton are bigger than qpr, there stadium is bigger and bigger fan base, been in prem more times and have a great youth system with the likes of Walcott,bale,chamberlain.
(Sunderland Fan)CorrectSoton have much bigger fan base, better stadium, buckets of cash, brand new state of art training facility, one of best youth set-up's around, play better football and don't have idiots like Barton playing for them. No contest.Southampton do have the bigger stadium (and newer), the more fans (although the majority on here appear to be dolts) and the greater history and tradition. QPR, however, have the wealthier owners, in particular Mittal, and whatever Saints fans may think, a far superior squad and manager. Tough one that, actually.I am a Saints fan, does it really matter who is the bigger club its about how the team is proforming at the current time isnt it. The way i see it if you are in the Premiere league getting the rewards the Premiereship brings then you got to be considered a big club. The likes of Leeds, Sheffield Wednesday in my opinion are big clubs but all the time they are not in the Prem they will not be considered a bigger club then any team that is in the prem. LOL i am confusing my self i will shut up.Saints bigger club FACT. Ed you are clueless! {Ed001's Note - he is an Everton fan!}Saints fan here - No doubt QPR have more money, that Mittal guy is seriously loaded! Saints owners are around £3Bn +...however that doesnt mean all that money will be used on the football club. I agree with the guy above, if your in the Premier League your a big club..both QPR and Saints are big clubs and both teams have different reasons why.Apart from having rich owners, QPR are probably the smallest club in the Prem along with Wigan.

Nick Powell from Crewe Alexandra could
be on his way to Manchester United after
his form in league 2 this season after all
Fergie and David Moyes were at the play
off semi final home leg between crewe and
southend(7)(1)How many times are Crewe fans going to link players with Man U and how many times do they ever go there? Powell is a talent but nowhere near good enough for the Prem.Powells gone to united for 4mill, over the 4 times weve played crewe this season powell has done very little to merit a 250k transfer however


17 May 2012 10:17:05
Southampton are interested on signing veteran Neil Harris for a fee of 1 million pounds. The classy finisher said this would be a excellent signing because he would be able to prove himself at the highest-level. He is believed to be the highest paid player if he was to join Southampton, with a wage of £60,000 per week.(13)(25)From Southend of League 2 at his age, really likely if he wasnt good enough for MillwallAre you demented Neil Harris is too old and at the end of his career and no way will Saints pay 60k to anyone and im not a Saints fan. You must have had a weird dream last night to come out with that rubbish.If this is true,it would be a great finale for a great pro!good luck neil!always a lion!coyl!Good luck to him if true!Would be an excellent signing - if we were still in 1998Excellent player, you could do a lot worse, but even as a fan which i am i think this may be a step to far, but if any one deserves a go in the top flight it would be harris.

17 May 2012 10:10:14
Adebayo Akinfenwa is no where near worth £500,000.

David James will either retire in the interim or go into goalkeeping coaching.

The Emile Heskey rumour I've heard too. Heard he wants to come in ideally as a player/coach.(7)(4)Wht do people keep going on about Akinfenwa the guy is overweight.slow is a L2 player at best and only moves in a 5 yard radius. No way would he be worth 500k you are having a laugh 100k maximum.Can you imagine Heskey as a coach? There'd be a generation of strikers who can't score and like trying to hit the corner flag!Turner wouldn't never sign calamity James & Akinfenwa isn't even worth £50 never mind £500,000! Shrewsbury couldn't afford Heskey's wages either.


17 May 2012 09:56:41
A.V.B to take over at Liverpool, he will be given in the region of £100 million to spend and allowed to keep the majority of any transfer fees recouped. Fenway Group will insist on a successfull season becuase they will not bank role another season with as much money otherwise.(4)(13)I think this would be a great move by Liverpool. We need a young but proven manager to be given a chance unlike the players at Chelsea who made his time a nightmare, we have a squad who will listen and learn from him. Would also attract Porto or ex-Porto players to the club, Pereira, Falcao, Rolando or Hulk would be great signings.

Several bits of Palace gossip today:

Crystal Palace, Leeds and Ipswich target Joel Ward is expected to sign for the Eagles by the weekend.

Palace are also set to sign an unnamed Manchester United youngster on a year's loan with a view to a permanent move.

Palace have also agreed a deal for DarŪo Cvitanich. It is expected he will complete a permanent switch in June

Lewis Price is to join MK Dons on a season long loan.

Palace have also made a bid of £100,000 for Kaizer Chief's Siphiwe Tshabalala. Palace could have got him for free in January as his contract was due to expire. But after all the delays he eventually signed a new 3 year deal with KC.

Julian Speroni will sign a new "long-term" deal in order to finish his career at Palace. It is expected he will move into a coaching role at the club after finishing his playing career.

Dumbuya has agreed a deal to join the club. Transfer will announced on 1/6/12.

Bolton have offered to several Championship clubs Chris Eagles on a years loan. One of them is believed to be Palace, along with Charlton, Leicester, Middlesborough and Forest(6)(18)More rubbish. Ward will sign for ipswitch and eagles is far too good for you (you couldnt afford his wages anyway)Palace have enquired about Joel Ward but so have about 5 other clubs enquired,would love him at palace but doubt it.pppffftt ipswich all them star players and you only finnished 2 places above us pony comes to mind.Why would Bolton loan Eagles when he was part of their starting line up for most of last season.Lewis price will not join the mk donsEagles is going nowhere

Some Cardiff City FC News:

Despite the fans dislike to the proposed changes that the Malaysian owners wanted to make, there will still be a lot of changes to the squad in the summer.
Kenny Miller - Everton £500k
Peter Whittingham - West Ham - £4.7m (regardless of whether they are promoted on Saturday or not.
Rob Earnshaw - Vancouver White Caps - £700k
Filip Kiss - Notts County - Season Long Loan
Anthony Gerrard - Hull City - £1.1m
Mark Huson - Crystal Palace - undisclosed
Jon Parkin - Yeovil - Free

Will Keane - Man Utd - Season Long Loan
Yakubu - Blackburn - £2.5m
Roget Johnson - Wolves - £3m
Frederic Veseli - Man Utd - Season Long Loan
Peter Lovenkrands - Newcastle - Loan
Alan Smith - Newcastle Utd - Free
Joe Lewis - Peterborough - Free

Expect Cardiff to have a decent start but their usual poor finish to next seasons campaign.
9th Placed Finish(11)(19)If West Ham don't go up there is no way they can spend £4.7m on a player as there will have to reduce their wage bill and playing staff.
Likewise Cardiff won't be able to afford £2.5 & £3m fees (granted part of your assessment is based on getting £4.7m for Whittingham) if funding is withdrawn as has been intimatedGerrard is out of contract, he's available on a free.Lol welsh people need to keep in the no!! lovenkrands is free so no loan..., yakubu to cardiff who never go anywhere hmmmm 2.5 when blackburn want 10 !! johnson never go back to cardiff he has no relegation clause in his contract so stays on his 40k per week which i doubt you could afford a tenth of this..., keep dreaming and up swansea!!Carling Cup Final and Playoff Semi final , thats going somewhere bit harsh to say nowhere??

Ah bless was that a dig at Cardiff 'up Swansea'??? really mortified at that...ha ha ha

I think you'll find that Wolves will probably want rid of anybody on £40k per week as they will now be joining us in the Championship!! Im sure we could afford £4k a week for him as you state and thanks for being an expert on our finances , we'll pass you on our way up!! ttfnThe above is make believe !! Shock horror!!


17 May 2012 08:48:51
Man Utd in triple bid for Eden Hazzard,Grant Holt and Stewart Downing as sir Alex starts rebuilding squad.(9)(33)None of these players will go to United.Stewart downing would make their squad worse..,They wouldnt pay £1.50 for downingLMFAO.downing,ye can take him for freeHazard is extremely possible, either them or city.

17 May 2012 08:45:54
Rafael Benitez to return to Liverpool
after the sacking of Kenny Dalglish.
He will hopefully bring in Gaston Ramirez,
Luuk de jong and Rasmus elm.(13)(10)That is all that Liverpool needs, another manager who believes in their own legend and thinks that they can spend silly money on players that are mediocre at best. What Liverpool need is a manager who will make the best of the players that they have and can work with a now limited amount of money as the owner have already indicated that players will need to be sold before they can buy.

I expect Liverpool to go for either Capello, Klinsman, Loew or Rijkaard.Capello too expensive; the other three too successful

Liverpool want Watford manager Sean Dyche to take over at Anfield. They are looking a young fresh blood and The Watford boss has done extremely well for the Hornets this season with limited resources. Wolves are also interested.(6)(31)They MUST have a VERY GOOD sense of HUMOUR!Wolves have their new manager alreadyImagine the look on the scousers facesThey also want the Acrington Stanley boss to.......................Wolves already have a new managerCome on don't be silly..... Dyche has done very well, but does not have the pedigree, experience or any real achievements that would put him in contention. Great season with Watford, yes, with the resources it was arguably as good as Adkins/McDermott ....but that's not enough. He will stay another year at least...then maybe if we do well next year another team might try and lure him away.


17 May 2012 07:22:38
Neil Warnock was said to be furious last night as Leeds have missed out on not one, not two, but three signings this week.

Joel Ward - wages, will join Ipswich
Paul Green - wages - not joking, is also now likely to join Ipswich
Clint Hill - set to sign a new deal at QPR

Warnock goes in holiday in Saturday so that will be Leeds's last activity for at least a fortnight.(17)(10)Why would anyone be surprised by this rumour, Bates is still trying to run Leeds on the cheap wages wise, and they will struggle to keep any of their best players as their contracts run down unless Bates starts to recognise that salary levels have risen in the championship.Ward is joining Crystal Palace

Warnock doesn't go way until the 26th, he has said this more then once, he also said he expecting 2/3 signing before he goes and that the players haven't been linked yetWard will sign for Palace not IpswichWarnock not away until 25th.
You don't miss out on a player who signs a new contract with his current club and they are in the Premiership.
It's Ipswich fans that started the rumour about wages. Given that Ward was one of the lowest earners at Pompey, like Pearce, it's doubtful it's wages. The logical reason is that he wants to stay down south as has been muted.
Green could be wages, that's one of the reasons he didn't sign a new contract at Derby because he wanted too much.
At the end of the day there is no point guessing or listening to other rumours. If it happens it happens and if they don't sign they don't want to play for us. Think of it this way £15k/week is nearly £800k/year for playing football - how much do you earn a year?What any of us earns per year is irrelevant. The material sums the players earn are irrelevant as well - what is important is that you ensure you are paying competitively for the League in order to secure your targets. It doesn't matter if you're paying £1k/week or £500k/week. The important thing is, you're paying competitively when compared to other teams in the same division. Players won't settle for less than average. {Ed013's Note - There is probably a bidding war going on and Leeds will not go past what they offered. Teams like Ipswich will be getting frustrated of losing their targets and therefore up their offer in wages and instead of signing 3-4 players with their budget, they will take the hit and sign 2-3 instead so their budget adds up. It is early days, so I wouldn't worry too much}What does it matter if Warnock is on holiday or not...he wont be doing the negotiations. He will give Bates his list of targets and then its up to Bates to negotiate terms with the players.
Its NOT about competitive salaries its about having a wage bill that is LESS in incomings otherwise you accumulate debt.All decent players left leeds last summer and jan. Anybody with a brain would not join leeds. Plenty loans in there team come augI don't think Ward is coming to us Ipswich

Southampton interested in re-signing Kenwyne Jones from Stoke, Stoke are willing to sell to reduce the clubs wage bill.(12)(15)I would say its more because he is like 5th choice striker! Not the wage bill... However I can see bigger clubs approach him like QPRWe don't want him. He's always injured and showed no loyalty last time he was with us.Jones only looks after Jones - he does not fit the profile of the new and improved Southampton....COYRs....Another player saints want lolSaints dont want Jones and Saints dont want the majority of the players mentioned on here. This is a rumour site which around 90% of is probably made up! It annoys me when I read people commenting "Another player Saints wants lol " or " How deluded are Saints wanting all these players " etc...It amazes me how so many people take all these rumours seriously and take it as fact. Saints will buy players and people will know who they are when they are signed. Rant over..No another player Pompey skates claim Saints want.
Look lets make it clear, no one will no any of Southampton transfers this season until they are made public by ethier Adkins or Cortese FACT.
So you Skates keep posting away, i personally love the fact you would rarther talk about our club then your own, tells you all you need to know.No Saints fan would want him back at all, after the way he left us.Saints have come out and said the want a home grown squad so why would they spend money on him?It's a rumour site ffsI doubt Jones would want to go near Soton and they couldn't afford him anyway.

Sunderland looks his likely destination as MON a huge admirer. Malaga have also shown interest
