Football Rumours Archive July 21 2009


Use our rumours form to send us football transfer rumours.

city have been told to bid for vidic by tevez. vidic wife is not fed up with manchester she has fallen out with some of the other wags big style and vidic is after a move to keep her happy.
  Arsenal aren't going to sign any players in the transfer market.

This may not be a transfer rumour, but it's definitely a rumour – Ivan Gazidis has told Arsene Wenger that he has to deliver something better this season, or he'll face the chop. Ivan the Terrible fears that the frenchman has become complacent at Arsenal, and despite having a huge transfer kitty (£35m+), he still doesn't want to spend.

I gather Martin O'Neill, David Moyes, and (gasp) Sven are three names that Gazidis will contact, the second that Wenger's goose is cooked.
  Manchester City News. . . . . .

This could happen ???

Forget Robinho signing for Liverpool If he was to leave it would be to Chelsea as a part exchange for TERRY. . . . . . Chelsea are fed up with the Negative Press and will do a deal very soon
  Heard from a good source that gary o'connor is one of celtics main signing targets? can anyone else clear this up ? Catholic Billy
  1. looks certain that crouch will snub safc and join fulham or spurs
2. ashley cannot get a buyer and will refuse to pour more money into a lost cause – administration beckons – points deduction and a further relegation for the toon
3. sunderland will continue to think big with Cattermole to sigbn for £8 million and a big name European sriker along with Darren Bent

  . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

To 'arsenal fan Gavin' and 'Billy Bob'. . you both saw Peter Crouch in different Indian takeaways! Therefore either one or both of you is lying!!!
Personally, i think you're jealous of Goatman Gary seeing a football star. . i think he was honest because he didn't go over the top in his writing.

Peter Crouch – Arsenal for 12 million


. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
  Not a rumour, its just that how many times do people have to be told. Jesus Navas suffers from severe homesickness. So much so he has had to leave Spanish training camps to go home. He will never, ever leave Sevilla.

So 09. get your facts right!!
  Cardiff city.
just having a meal down cardiff bay,and in walked darren gibson and is girlfiend,(who was stunning by the way).
i asked was he signing for cardiff,and he said he staying in cardiff till thursday and smiled.
season long loan maybe?hope so

With Rafa saying Nemeth will be allowed to go on loan expect him at Tranmere next season along with David Amoo.

Rafa is singing Babels praises and Riera is a good winger so can't see any1 else comin in on the left. We need a striker to cover for Nando as it looks like Vorinin will cover Stevie G tho don't kno why they don't put Riera or Babel in the hole, expect Alvaro Negredo to be part of the Alonso deal IF HE GOES. Also would like to see a bid for Yaya Toure.

  Celtic will sign Brazilian youngster Willard 19)om Brazilian side Bahia for a Fee Of £1.2m. He can play in Britain without a work permit as he has a Portuguese passport.
  Liverpool want to sign Celtic midfielder Aiden McGeady. A fee of at least £6.5m will be required for the Ireland international.
  I've heard rumours that Roman Bednar will be joining Falkirk on loan from West Brom until January. WBA hope a loan spell will help to increase his value so they can ofload him in January.
  David Villa will sign for the manc scum unfortunately. Old purple nose kept this one hidden.

Ask Guillem Balague

5 times

1. Lescott
2. Terry
3. Kolo Toure

WILL sign within the next 10 days

if Toure comes to City Expect his brother to follow soon after

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Napoli are in for Andrea Dossena
  Hi all – just finished a shift at the Vale of Glamorgan Hotel when I saw Vito Mannone check in with his agent.

Word is that Cardiff City are looking to trial him and another goalkeeper (heard it's Graham Stack) this week and hope to offer one of them a year's deal.

Cardiff are short of goalkeeping options, and David Jones is looking to bring in a back–up 'keeper to challenge Peter Enckleman for the number 1 jersey this season.
  To the person who "Celtic to land Mido from Middlesbrough for a fee of £5 Million, this will see the departure of Hesselink".

Hesselink waved bye bye 3 weeks ago mate. He was freed and has been talking too PSV and AJAX. God knows why. Maybe they have asked him if he knows a good striker.

Hail hail
  Great news for Arsenal fans. My cousin was working at the Emirites today doing some electrical work and he overheard a conversation between two executives. Apparantly Wenger has instructed the board to do whatever they have to do to sign Henry from Barcelona, after Wenger spoke to the player and Henry said a return was all he dreamed of and he still loves Arsene. He also heard them laughing about Liverpool attemps to sign Fabregas.
  " CELTIC NEWS " Before thursday celtic will bring in 1 left–back, 2 midfielders ,1 striker these will be rushed through as champions league players have to be registered before thurs 11pm – 23rd july. Expect lennoxtown to be busy with medicals naylor,sheridan,kennedy,donati,hutchinson agents looking for clubs . . . . . . rangers will be left trailing way behind with their signings being mehmet,dorman, invincible! . . Tonel,brunt,driver, are well out of rangers wage structure ! JD FREELANCEJOURNO.
  To the guy who wrote
"Celtic to land Mido from Middlesbrough for a fee of £5 Million, this will see the departure of Hesselink."
hesselink has signed for bristol city . . about 2 – 3 weeks ago so get your facts correct before posting them !!!!!
mido will not sign as he is not good enough.
celtic will sign zaki for 6 million pound and alassane for 1 million pound.
they will then buy a left back, right back, and a 3 irish midfielders (damien duff, liam miller and one other who i do not know yet) this will give mowbray strength in depth which he craves ,then they will be covered in every position with at least 3 back up players all over the park.
Let the good times roll!
  There are rumours at the Banks's that Jorge Leitao is going to return to Walsall on a 2 year contract.
  LFC News?

Got a friend who lives & works in Dubai, and he told me that there are rumours Dubai are in a bit of a financial crisis. The Burj Al Arab (7 star hotel) is/has been sold, possibly to the Kuwaiti's and that Sheikh Mohammad is looking to consolidate his assets, so a take–over doesn't look like a possibile. I'm dissappointed, as a red I wanted the yanks out, but at the moment it looks like they might be here for a bit longer.
This all might turn out be a crock of sht, but isn't this what this site is all about?

I've heard this to altough i'm not sure about him selling lots of stuff because there was an article in the paper in australia about him buying $100 million AUD so i'm not sure wat report to be believe

  Got this on good authority – Cardiff City will sign Jerome Thomas on a year's deal and this will leave the door open to Joe Ledley leaving for Stoke, Hull or maybe even Wigan. watch this space!
  ‘RE RE: "Meanwhile Mowbray has also been considering giving former Rangers midfielder Stephen Hughes a contract after he asked for too much money at Hearts. Rangers are also keeping an eye on him but Smith is worried that as he wants both Peter Lovenkrands and Neil McCann, another former Rangers player would not be appropriate. Hughes is also a well know Celtic supporter, and is hoping this could work in his favour.
You need therapy mate. .Hughes is a Motherwell fan,always has been. . Lovenkrands is not going to happen and McCann. ok dreamer.!!
We'll sign no–one unless Velicka,McCulloch,Gow and Adam leave and then it will be a Bosman or loan and a centre half. if the deadwood goes then maybe 2 will come in with 3 or 4 youth players stepping up.’

Stephen Hughes was born in Motherwell, however like most people in Motherwell who support either Celtic or Rangers, Hughes supports Celtic (always has). He went to Our Lady’s High in Motherwell (where everyone supports Celtic!) and was one of the four players consisting of Chris Burke, Alan Hutton and Ross McCormack who were all well known Celtic fans when they played for Rangers.
It is well known that Walter Smith is unlikely to be allowed to add anyone to his squad however Neil McCann could be brought in as McCoist is looking at bringing him for his back staff when he takes over as manager next year. This is the reason McCann may get a year playing contract this season. Lovenkrands has been actively pursuing a move to Rangers for over two months now and has to play the waiting game until a few more players are sold. He is the most likely signing Rangers will make (if any) this season.
In other news, Kurtis Byrne– son of former Celtic player Paul Byrne– phoned Neil Lennon after Hibernian’s under 19’s cup final last season and told him he wanted to come to Celtic and was encouraged. This is a fact. However there are two stumbling blocks; it was before Tony Mowbray came to the club and he is completely aware he can’t sign players who can’t walk into the first team straight away (Stephen Fletcher being a prime example) as he has to win the league at the first attempt. Also John Hughes does not want him to leave and is hoping to introduce him to the first team this season. However as he won’t cost much– a bid of £100k will not be refused– Byrne may well yet get his wish this season.
Finally James McCarthy is privately sick that Celtic have not come in with another bid for him yet. This is also a fact (not just wishfull thinking!) He was promised by Strachan before he left that he would be his number one signing this summer (where Fletcher ironically was his number two). He had preparing himself all summer for a move to Celtic Park but due to Mowbray panicking he might not be ready to play Champions League football, he has to look elsewhere. The only reason he is putting of his move to Wolves or Wigan for as long as he can is because Dermot Desmond has done in the past signed Irish players for Celtic at the last minute when he saw fit– regardless of the managers wishes– Paddy McCourt and Roy Keane being the obvious examples. If he does move down south to a relegation club it will not be his first choice move.
   Rangers News

Ok here are a few names being bandied about Glasgow tonight. The Cardigan, we believe, would like one or two of the following:

Popoen (Sparta Rotterdam), Cetto (Toulouse), J McIntyre (Dunfermline), Charnley (Partick), H Murray (St Mirren) & Craigan (Motherwell.)

These depend on shipping deadwood out the door, unlike Torchwood with monsters & rubbish make–up. . or maybe that is Ibrox dressing room?
  Robinho will join Liverpool on loan with possible 30 million pound move at the end of the season. Jamie Carragher himself told me this when signing autographs, (as I told you the other day.) I've heard other people speaking about this aswell. I hadn't told them what I heard so I think there is definatley something on the horizon. The news may break soon, but don't forget I told you first!

Michah Richards will join for 8 million and will be 1st choice right back.
(Glen Johnson will be used as a right midfielder.)

Stephen Warnock will rejoin for 6 million pounds with Dossena due to leave and the injury prone Aurellio will leave in january.

Liverpool will make enquiry for Ashley Young but won't pay over the odds for him. Rafa will try to clear the air with o'neill to make negotiations easier.
  To the idiot who says "Celtic to land Mido from Middlesbrough for a fee of £5 Million, this will see the departure of Hesselink" Hesselink has left longggggggggg ago. on the otherhand mido will not go to celic but as a fan of the club i would love to see it but he will go bk to egypt and go to Zamalek. Fact Rangers will not sign Billy Memhet they have a tight purse and will onli give younger players a chance to shine.

  Norwich City Rumours for you all !!


Mike Theoklitos To Preston North End
Wes Hoolahan to Crystal Palace (Poss swop deal)
Kris Renton to Barnet (£80,000)

IN :

James Punchion from Plymouth (£350,000)
Andrew Bishop from Bury (£200,000)
Scott Arfield from Falkirk (£500,000)
Gary Taylor Fletcher from Blackpool (£200,000)
Alan Gow from Rangers (£450,000)

And we have 4 trialists as well that have not been named yet.
  Burnley will bid £2m for Ross Wallace from local lower league team Preston in the next few days. They have been priced out of deals for Andy Driver from Hearts and James McCarthy from Hamilton.

Other big news of interest to the Clarets, whilst out in Los Angeles on pre–season tour, Burnley are in discussions with the MLS to allow Fredy Montero of the Seattle Sounders to join the club at the expiry of the MLS season. Coyle has been a long term fan thanks to the scouting system in place from the Cary Clarets team set up last year.
  My cousin who works at stamford bridge told me that the buzz around the stadium is that john terry has agreed a new 5 year deal that will make him the highest paid player at stamford bridge. My cousin said peter kenyon was on the phone with john terry for 30min–1hr talking about the new contract. Roman Abromovich is flying into california as we speak to unveil the new contract as well as watching chelsea play inter milan tuesday. John Terry will announce that he's staying as well as the new contract early this week.

My cousin, who works at stamford bridge, told me earlier today that he saw Ashley Young drive into the clubs garage in his Black Bentley to compensate a deal that would make him a chelsea player for 4 years. The deal could earn him 125,000 a week.

  Another inside story from stamford bridge, robinho is almost done completing a move to chelse for around 25–30million. 3 year deal. Keep your eyes open for that deal coming in.

terry–staying at chelsea
ashley young– joining chelsea
robinho–joining chelsea
huntelaar–visiting the bridge for talks with chelsea
  Once man u get back from their holiday in asia
ashley young and jan klass huntelaar will get their medicals done at old trafford
ngiak suddenly hears that either mamadou diarra or michael essien will be a united player before start of the season
carrick and berba cannot play in the same team. .
one of them will leave
ngiak can't get rid of the persisting gignac talk. .
  Sorry to disappoint everyone but Ashley Young will go for no less than £32 million as specified at this point of his contract. (a complicated one as i've been reliably told), thus ruling out all the sell before they can buy types (such as tottenham, everton and liverpool) and the rest of the top four that have stringent transfer stratergies and realise he's not value for money as it stands. Villa and Martin O'Neil do however realise that he can't be kept forever and so will be made available for next summer for an amount of £19mil to entice a bidding war (world cup considered).
However on the brightside for villa fans (i'm not one of you but i know you lot can be a miserable bunch) you've got downing who may not have the skill of young but isn't as petulant and has a greater understanding of the game (not a boro either just interested observer) and will be eased into the team over the coming season, along with (don't get too excited it probably is rubbish) Wesley Schnider
  Yes I am happy that Rafa has solved the (lack of strikers) solution at Liverpool he's admitted that he's not interested in buying Villa as they have Voronin! Is he serious, Torres and Voroniniho are going to be our strikers for next year? I wouldn't have minded if Rafa had said that no strikers due to emergence of Pacheco or Nemeth. I hope that young or Silva are not just pie in the sky rumours. With the imminent departure of Alonso I also hope that the Essien rumour is true my fav midfielder in the premiership imagine Masch, Essien Gerrard and Silv
  "Just put a new fence up at peter kenyons, overheard that we're buying robinho for 28mill plus ricky carvalho, pato deal should be done by weds and breno on his way in for 18mill"

Man puts together new fence. Peter Kenyon and friend come out into back garden and begin to talk in stage whispers, rather like the psstake that the Comic Strip did with their comedy villains in their take–off of the Famous Five. "Blah, blah, blah. . .new deals for Chelsea. .blah, blah, blah. . buying Robinho for £28m. . blah, blah, blah. . .we're getting Ricky Carvalho, too. . blah, blah, blah. "

"Blah, blah, blah. . will that secret deal for Pato which no–one must ever know about till the time comes be wrapped up, Mr. Kenyon?. .blah, blah, blah. ."

"Yes, by Wednesday. . blah, blah, blah. .and so should the Breno deal, which should be about £18m. .blah, blah, blah. ."

"Thank you, Mr. Kenyon. .blah, blah, blah. .I'm so glad that we could discuss these secret matters in so remote a place as your back garden, where we wouldn't be overheard by anyone, except perhaps hopeless fantasists who couldn't possibly hear intricate and confidential discussions at such a specific and ludicrously opportune time, unless they were making it up. . blah, blah, blah. "

"Yes, now let's go inside and not talk about any other important club decisions until the next time we come out into the garden and speak in very loud whispers in front of people putting up fences. . "
  Guarantee this one, Alonso to Real Madrid, cash plus Huntalaar.

his first signings will be Jack Lester from chesterfield for 125,000 and David Carney from Sheff Utd for 100,000.
Vidic will leave Man United for Real Madrid.
Man United will then make a bid this week under Man City`s noses for John Terry, Terry will then decide to join Man United in the shock move of the summer Man City will throw as much money at Terry to join but he will snub the money for the chance of trophys to join Manchester United he will link up with Michael Owen whos has been convincing Terry to link u with him at Man Utd.
  To the Everton Trainee who said he saw Ashley Young in his Black BMW…… Load of rubbish, one of my best friends lives 2 doors away from Ashley Young, I see him all the time and he does not even have a BMW, his only car is a Black Bentley I could even tell you the personalized reg but I’m not going to as it’s not fair on the guy. So sorry mate but you’re talking garbage!!

  Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to sell Michael Carrick because he wasn't impressed with his performance last season. He scored 4 goals in all compeitions last season and Fergie expects more from his midfield players.

  Notts County are poised for a sensational recapture of Myles Weston. Having left Notts for Brentford, following the expiration of his contract, it is thought that Weston has had a change of heart and, following the recent takeover, County's manager McParland will bid a six figure sum to bring him back to Meadow Lane.

As a result of Weston's recapture it is believed that Ben Fairclough will move to Gloucester City on a season long loan. He will, however, remain training with the magpies a position made possible by Gloucester's surprise inclusion in the Blue Square North.
  Where are the robinho rumours 2 liverpool coming from
  Alonso is off sorry to say silva aint happening either but don't be too disapointed liverpool fans you will sign essien from chelsea raffa's number 1 target (fergie's big supprise)
  Hi, everyone I hear a lot about Liverpool FC rumours on this site and everyone seems to be a bit deluded, we only have a small budget. We will not sign Silva he is too expensive, although I have it on good authority that Rafa is looking at Porto's Striker Hulk, who is set to take the premiership by storm this season. A bid in the region of £13.5m will secure the services of this gem! He will then use babel more as the left winger and sell Riera.

Hope that helps J
  Arsenal news

adecantscore has left arsenal finally. now they need to find a replacement. here are the four possibilities one of which will be an arsenal player come the beginning of the season.

Chamakh – arsenal have been watching striker for two seasons now along with ben arfa and a couple of other lads in the french league. but since adebayor is gone and chamakh helped bordeaux to a succesful season, mr wenger feels it is time to bring him, but they will have a little bit of competition with fulham, tottenham and sunderland which will only make arsenal have to bump up the price a bit for the gunners to get their man

Huntelaar – a january signing for the madrid last year, and although performing well and scoring plenty of goals, with the arrival of ronaldo kaka benzema, the dutchmenis on the club transfer list. arsenal and man utd both had interest in the next bergkamp last season and could be the missing link for arsenal up top with fellow dutchmen van persie. wenger is being slow however as a price of 16 million pounds would be the price to outbid stuggart.

Aguero – sounds unlikely, but a very possible transfer. he feels he has done all he can at athletico and wants another challenge to a big team away from spain as he is still young. the deal would only happen however if AW pushed aside his transfer policy and splashed the cash. the deal that would take arsenal to get the hitman would be: senderos+eboue+15 million pounds. will wenger splash out on a player that might not fit into the system?

Martins – basically, arsenal will sign him if they get no one else. he is plan b for wenger and he wouldn't have to spend much on him, as his team is in the championship.

also arsenal are looking at

–Gago /M.Diarra both on the out list at madrid
–Yaya Toure
–Gokhan Inler
–Ashley Young– arsenal are keeping tabs on him, wanted by Man utd liverspain and Chelski but he is an arsenal fan and if he is available for transfer i think AW will look at the ENGLISH talent.
  First of all i would like to remind everyone who is posting roumors on here – Especialy SPL roumors – about the state of the Scottish game (yet again), thanks to Santanta Sports.

At the start of the Window, it was a well know fact that Sir David Murray was only going to give Walter Smith any monies he revieved in the current window with the sale of current players, however due to the financial propels that have arrose with the demise of Santanta, the only way Walter Smith can now bring in players is: A – Reduce the first team squad to 16, with the addition off Bosman transfers on small wages, B – Step up the best off the youth system and C – Sell 2 or more of the current blue chip players such as Boyd, Davis, Bougherra, Thompson or believe it or not John Fleck.

Please note i have heard this from my Friends father who works for a scottish news tabloid who has regular contact with all SPL clubs.

He has told me that Rangers are trying to get the following out the door, and yes as everyone is saying they will take cut prices for these players.


Taking a step up is likley to be: Little, Lennon and Wilson. Aparently the likes of Rory Loy will be going out on loan again until December 09 and will be reviewed again after the new year.

Also, expect to see a new manager next season ( not McCoist ) as apparenly Walter Smith is unhappy at not being alowed to sell Danny Willson to Spurs for 4.5m + loan, and also John Fleck to Man Utd/Arsenal for 3/4m + add ons.

Although peopl are contantly throwing names about such as Tonel, Lovenkrands, Gatuso, Brunt or the likes – expect to see ( if any ) players from other SPL teams or lower league EPL teams on wages below 5k a week.

Also, expect Celtic to continue to make signings between 1–3m mark, they have money in the bank and Mowburry has been given 7/8m + sales to spend on new players. Not sure who they are, aparently my friends dad is not liked by Dermot Desmond.


Sammy Clingan 700k – 1 million
Jordan Henderson Season long loan
Richard Wood Deal in early stages a fee is yet to be agreed as Coventry are onlu willing to pay 800k for him but Sheffield Wednesday want 1–1.5 million.
  Man City are working on these signings these:
M.Diarra + Heinze–20m
Super Agent is correct Robinho is leaving for 30m to Chelsea.
Evans–2m–Sheff Utd
Bonjinov–4m–West ham
Ben Haim–3m–Hull
  Rumours from Ibrox

All this talk of administation is rubbish, there's no way Murray would allow that to happen.

Smith seemingly has around £3m available for transfers and will get to keep roughly 50% of any incomings from tranfers. At the moment, CB and LM are his only concern and expect a centre half to arrive before the end of the month. More than likely to be Tonel from Sporting for around £2–3m. Any other players coming in will determine on players leaving (McCulloch, DaBeasley, Adam or Velika). A couple of loan deals may be possible, Rangers will be a very attractive team for any fringe players hoping to get noticed for the World Cup next year.

Mon the Gers!
  My friend at school is currently a leeds united youth player and good friends with fabian delph. he told me that delph was going to sign for ethier villa or man utd. he also said he would prefer to go to villa as he will get more first team action but man utd is a big cub and he may not get the chance to play for them if he doesn't go now.

  Arsenal Latest

Chamakh will be joining arsenal, the moroccan keeps coming out in the press saying 3 other prem teams are an option and have bid but arsenal is unlikely simply because he wants to force a move and encourage arsenal to bid. Wenger with analyse the team and despite having plenty of forwards until Eduardo is 100% we don't have a real out n out goal scorer. Huntelaar has gone to Stuttgart which i believe was opportunity wasted tho i do have every faith that wenger will bring in the right man. Gignac from Toulouse was someone i've mentioned before that Grimandi has watched and despite Lyon having 20mil rejected wenger can get him for just under this price as Toulouse do not want to sell their best player n league top scorer to league rivals. Martins is still likely and can be purchased for around 9mil, if chamakh goes elsewhere expect this move ahead of gignac. In midfield wenger is waying up a move between 4 players – Matuidi,Inler, M.Diarra and Veloso. Only reason ones not been signed yet is because of squad size and wenger needs to trim and see what offers are received before determine who will come in. Expect 2 new players to feature in the emirates cup.
  AFC News

Luis Fabiano to the grove! With AC Milan unwilling to raise their initial £ 12m bid and now turning to Vicinic, Wenger will use the adebayor money to buy Luis Fabiano for the asking price of around £ 18m.
The rest of the money will be used to get the much needed CDM Lorik Cana.
  Celtic Inside News
Stephen McManus, is deeply unhappy about the comments made about the Celtic captaincy, he could be set to move on when fit, Alex McLeish and Mick McCarthy are known admirers.
Celtic still in for James McCarthy, although the move may come too late. The Board are eager to sanction this, especially as there are one or two players (McGrady & Brown) are set to be unsettled and looking to move to the premiership as soon as possible.
Celtic will also look at offers for Hinkel, more because the player hasn’t enjoyed Scotland as much as he hoped.
Boruc is staying, till next summer at least, then Zaluska will take over.
Celtic were very disappointed to miss out on Xabi Castillo, the clubs and John Park in particular had spent many hours on the deal, and the player was very keen, all for it to change at a very late stage. Celtic have two or three alternatives, the name I’ve heard most about is fox from Conventry.
Celtic would sell McDonald, but he wants to stay.
Caldwell will sign new contract, as soon as £19k a week is agreed and he is made captain.
Celtic are also interested in Jay Simpson from arsenal on loan.
Last piece of gossip…. Kevin Thomson, it would never happen eh? Watch this space, if he can prove his fitness there could be a big deal to bring him to Celtic.

  Alright, alright. Came on here with a gold nugget of info regarding overhearing Crouchinhio on his mobile to Arsene, suggesting the big man might join the Goons.
Didn't expect to get mocked (!); someone thinks Crouch 'probably has loads of security' with him when he goes for an afternoon stroll. Get real, it's not Obama we're discussing!
Then a guy named Big Billy says he had a curry with Crouchy. Yeah right Billy, wake up your dreaming sonny!

Fact of the matter is, i did walk past Crouchy, i did hear him, he did say 'Arsene', on my goldfishes life! To prove it, i just put a fiver on Crouch to Arsenal at 16–1. That was my bus money for the week, so i'll be walking everywhere. Wouldn't do that if i wasn't sure of a pot of gold now, would i?
Gran would turn in her grave if she new i'd been gambling!

  Notts Co are in the chase for out of favour Nottingham Forest striker Rob Earnshaw after their recent signings upfront, he is settled in the area an a move across the trent and regular first team football is attracting. .
  NCFC news, Whaley to sign tonight announced either tonight or tomorrow, clearance has been sought for the signing of Goran Maric, deal been discussed and agreed in principal.

Mr McVeigh has been handed a pay as you play offer which will be agreed by the end of the week.

A shock return might be on the cards for Jason Shackell, Wolves will cut their losses after trying to offload the player to a number of championship clubs without much response and are offering Norwich an option to loan initially with future fees to be paid upon promotion.

On the way out is Sammy Clingan who will finally complete a protracted move to Coventry by the end of the week. This move was put on hold blaming the agent but in truth Mr Clingan is not keen on move away from Carrow Road.

Russell having made his intentions clear to Gunn is still finding it hard to attract any decent offers, only Barnsley & Doncaster have made tentative enquiries so far.

Additional is an enquiry for young Adeyemi from Fulham, has caught the eye of a number of scouts during last years academy performances and is been tracked by Fulham as asked Roy Hodgson.
  ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Ashley Young will not be moving clubs this summer. Guaranteed. Young would ONLY leave Villa for a club in the champions league (unlike Barry) and none of the top 4 will bid for him. He will not move abroad because of the world cup.

James McCarthy will not sign for Wigan or Wolves as his agent has been in dialogue with Rafa Benitez who has told him he will match the £3m bid once Alonso has left. Rafa sees him as Gerrards eventual replacement. Personal terms have already been agreed.

One player who will sign for Wigan is Alvaro Negredo for a fee of 10m euros. Forget the paper talk, Spurs have not made a bid for him. Spurs are desperately trying to offload players before they can sign anyone. Bent, Pavyluchenko, Huddlestone, Hutton and Bentley have been offered around but no one will buy at the prices Spurs want.

I can now reveal the club who has had a bid accepted for Robinho is Chelsea. It is a cash deal with no player exchanges. John Terry will still sign for City but also in a straight cash deal. This will not happen for a few weeks .

Valencia are holding out for 25m euros for David Silva. He WILL sign for Liverpool but expect this to take a while. David Villa is staying at Valencia for at least 1 more year.

Finally, I have just received a call from Sir Alex Ferguson asking if it was me who wrote the piece on Rooney wanting to leave, as not many people actually knew this, and to keep my nose out of their business. Yes Sir Alex it was me and you know I speak the truth.–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––Not So Secret Agent.

  Walsall have offered former Swindon Strker Blair Sturrock a trial

I know you will probably not believe this or even acknowledge this as i never do to any post on this website but at least remember it and remember who, you heard it from – Bellee04.

Now this is 100% true. Manchester City will announce the double signing of John Terry and Lescott in the next few days. Both deals are near completion with Everton ready to accept a 21m offer and Chelsea finnaly giving in to Manchester City with a deal of around an astonoshing 64m .

I know you will not believe this but when you hear on skysportsnews on Thursday about these deals then just remember that i told you them first.

Can't remember his name, but the guy who was annoyed at an interviewer and famously said in broken english. . ." You say I know nothing. I tell you I know Fk all" just about has it right when it comes to rumours about Spurs.

So here's a few predictions (some repeated). Just looking at Sunderland and Villa it seems there's a kind of jigsaw with all three (Spurs inc) trying to find players. Bruce needs another striker, MON needs to replace Barry and find a striker, but obviously wants to keep Young, who Spurs would love. Harry wants another tall front man, and will offload either Bent or Keane.

So, if MON wants a striker, it won't be Bent. But Harry will try to negotiate a swap involving Keane/Jenas/Bentley, possibly replacing Jenas with one from Poulsen, Capoue or Sissoko.

Lennon will stay: Huddlestone will stay: Jenas will only leave in a swap. O'Hara could fit the bill at Villa though. English left footed midfield with a bit of attitude!

Crouch is such an obvious fit at WHL partnering Defoe, but Pav should stay to give Harry two big man small man pairings.

Dos Santos is young but a similar player to Keane (better in my opinion) and has a great left foot. Check out his goal for Mexico. So I predict he will stay. Good accross the park and handy in a number of positions.

Gunter is gone. Chimbonda will go when one of the Kyles arrives. Corluka is versatile and can cover at RB, CB and his best position as holding midfield. Maybe even taking Jenas's spot?

Rose, Taraabt, Parret, Bostock and Dervitte (CB) will all be given the chance to grab squad numbers.

Forget paper talk about KJH and Negredo. If Crouch does go to Sunderland Kenwyn Jones will be swopped for either Keane or Bent.

Yep. I know fK all, or should that be everything.

In Harry we hope.
