Nicky butt is considering an approach from blue square premier grimsby that has him playing and part of the backroom staff(?) or a shareholder(?) for some reason. hes talking to them about something anyway. I know his family well


22 Apr 2011 19:33:49
After an interview with carlo ancelotti it seems as though chelsea will be buying a lot of fresh young faces, as the manager says the reason for no trophies is that the squad was too thin. it also seems that a lot of their players are realising their age and seem to be unable to keep up with the pace in the prem. these are the players they will attempt to bring in, in no particular order-
neymar, defoe, hazard, chiellini, van der wiel, begovic, and baines


22 Apr 2011 19:11:14
Roberto Mancini is set to spend big yet again to shape his team. Big name players like Bellamy, Adebayor, Tevez and Bridge will be leaving.

Robertos wishlist:

Richards, Chiellini, Kompany, Contrao,
Modric, de Jong, Y. Toure,
Silva, Aguero, Balotelli

Zabaleta, Lescott, K. Toure, Kolarov,
Wright-Phillips, Barry, Milner, A. Johnson
Dzeko, Lukaku


22 Apr 2011 19:05:49
Jonathan Walters and Mathew etherington have been in such great form for stoke, it seems a few big teams are turning their heads. Possibilities are mainly liverpool and tottenham


22 Apr 2011 18:55:58
Real madrid may swoop for Robin van persie, as they look for someone who will play well alongside in-form adebayor, who were together before at the emirates.

Chelsea will ditch torres for half the price, and he may go back to his first club atletico madrid. The cash from torres would the be enough for strike neymar from the brazilian league.

Barca won't be buying big this summer ass there squad is already strong enough, but they may shift out some young talent, for example Bojan and flop Afelaay.


22 Apr 2011 18:48:26
Manchester united are finally going too splash out again this summer, as it seems fergie will have his final clearout to help bring in fresh talent. It seems as though manuel neuer from schalke is hinting a possible move to manchester, but david de gea is also a possibility. (These are of course to replace Van der sar) In defence, he may bring a few not well known defenders for back up, as it seems as though in recent years, they have struggled with injuries. In midfield, it seems set that scholes is to leave and possibly carrick? If so it seems as though that they'll swoop for sneider and de rossi from roma as second choice. In strike, berbatov, although top scorer is also being told to leave, after those dismal misses against Man city. They will not though get a first team replacement, but just get someone good enough for the bench, as it seems chicharito is rooneys best strike partner. sorry for any incorrect spelling


22 Apr 2011 18:40:40
Charlton team next year: Only Jackson Semedo and Bradley Wright Phillips will be in the starting 11 next season.

Not really a rumour but more my opinion - why would anybody pay 6 mill for charlie adam??
boy can't run/head the ball kick with his right foot - one paced ther for can't stay in a game too long.
6 to 12 good months in football don't make you a superstar - ask frannie jeffers
i bet some crazy manager will pay 6 mill but for his ability to pass with his left peg as long as he got loadsa room to play in.
tevez to italy - few city boys sold as well they got too many as it is. {Ed007's Note - Oh my god, not charlie adam again, what did I do to deserve this????? Good point mate though mate I totally agree with you}

Group Lotus CEO Dany Bahar was seen at Portman Road tonight to see Norwich thrash Ipswich 5-1 and has "apparently" said that Lotus may re-unite their ties with the club not as a sponsorship deal but instead as investors.

The deal will only be negotiated if Norwich reach the promised land of the Premier League

They will meet Delia's asking price which was £56million (when the Cullum deal was put down) but has potentially risen as high as £80million due to assets and the fact the club hasn't made operating profits.

The £80million deal will clear the clubs long term loans but will not fund ANY player transfers there will be a further £10 million thrown in for player transfers which will be then topped up by Sky TV money.
