  To the person that says Mcfadden is going to Celtic sorry but your wrong mate as jmc is sticking with blues as he wants to at least help them gain promotion then you might be right next Summer.

kapo will go to Wigan for £2 million with Koumas going the other way and brucie will also try to sign damien Johnson with big eck reluctant to sell unless he gets Davies of Pompey. koller will sign and Nugent or Beattie to follow an oconnor is going to Hibernian.

  Major Pool news. There is going to be a managerial vacancy anaytime now. This would explain why no one will touch the club with the proverbial barge pole. Lots of enquiries and no signings. Those in the football world know what is about to happen. No money, no masnager, no signings. Pool fans prepare for meltdown.

  Not English but speaks very good English. Jeremie Aliadiare. done deal signed Jan. David Villa will be wearing the number 7 shirt for LFC next season. He has been advised to quell the rumours and keep tight lipped over the ongoing unnecassary speculation and also to avoid the price of the transfer rocketing like the GB fiasco. David Silva's is said to be delighted at the prospect of playing in front of the Kop and has enqured about residence available near his Spanish counterparts. 100 percent fact no fairystorys

  The word in the Oakwell backroom is Kevin Phillips will be making the switch from the Midlands to South Yorkshire on first July (His contract expires at WBA) on a free transfer and will be the highest paid player at the club on a big £15,000 a week although he was rumoured to be on £20,000 at West Bromwich Albion he is thought to have taken this pay cut due to Barnsley offering him the two–year deal he so dearly wanted and because of the new challenge. Also heading to Oakwell will be Gareth Bale on loan from Tottenham on a 6–Month loan deal (this will be the left sided player Davey wants to bring in). A couple of other deals are in the pipeline but this is all the Barnsley INS I good dig out. As for the players leaving the Reds this Summer will be as follows.

Istvan Ferenczi: Notts Forest

Miguel Mostto: Peru (Do not know the clubs name)

The big one is Brian Howard's much talked about departure and he will be joining Everton. The Goodison Park outfit will beat Bolton to the Free–Scoring midfielder for £4.5 million.

Kayode Odejayi: Cheltenham (Loan)

Kyle Letheran: Swansea (Loan)

Bobby Hassell: Huddersfield Town £200.000

  Leicester City

Darren Moore (Derby)

Darren Byfield (Bristol City)

Players out

Conrad Logan (Stockport)

Louis Dodds (Lincoln)

Stephan Clemence (Birmingham)

Matt Oakley (Nottingham Forest)

Barry Hayles (Milton Keynes)

  First of all why would NUfc sign wide men E. g. McGeady and Pennant as they play with such a narrow line down the middle. Secondly SAfc to sign; McGeady, Evans, Forlan, Boyd, owain–Williams and bent

  Nufc rumours,

Big rumours surrounding the russia team that two of the squad members might be on their way to SJP after the tournment. The players are arshavin and zherkov. Keegan is rumoured to be tabling a bid of around £11 million for arshavin and around £5 million for zherkov. Also the Newcastle could have a tussle on their hand with the transfer of Arda Turan. With bigger clubs showing a keen interest. The clubs are Arsenal, Liverpool, and Valencia, Juve are aswell reporting an interest in the young turkish winger.

  Hey guys,

Stoke City apparently interested in Melbourne FCs Archie thompson

will also look at signing

james harper from Reading

liam ridgewell from Birmingham

Derby forward emmanuel villa

Osasuna midfielder Azpilicueta


  Whoever said that their 'Merseyside sources' had told them Liverpool would move to sign Heitinga from Holland? You need some new sources, Heitingas already joined Atletico Madrid for £10 million euros.

The reason Barry has not signed is because Rafa knows he's getting ripped off. But he wants Barry, a lot. He hopes to get other transfers sorted first for more reasonable prices, because if he ends up paying £20 million for Barry, then all our other targets clubs will Jack the price up in accordance. So do not expect to see the Barry saga finish for a while yet, not until after a few signings.

The two Davids from Valencia, Silva and Villa, are both players Rafa really likes. However, just like Torres and Babel last season, the big signings we make are likely to be players with little interest from elsewhere. What with the likes of Villa, Adebayor, Berbatov and Eto'o seemingly available, the speculation and price of Huntelaar has decreased. He's a possibility. For the wings, Rafa is not interested in a massive signing there, not unless it's Silva for around £15 million. Any more and he will look elsewhere. The reason for this is he see's Kuyt as a big player for next season. He's seen the form of Kuyt at this Euros, and the fact is if he was playing elsewhere He would be getting talked about as a £15–20 million player. The Euro's really show how one single good tournament can make a players career, just look at Diouf. With this in mind, Rafa's looking for players who werent involved or those overshadowed by better performing team–mates. With Torres and Villa the big performers so far for Spain, he will have a look at Cazorla and maybe even Iniesta or Xavi in a part–exchange with Xabi (plus money to FC Barcelona obviously). He's also had quite a long look at Nihat of Turkey and, believe it or not because I thought he looked pretty average, Elmander of Sweden.

  Crystal Palace are edging ever closer to getting the target man Neil Warnock is looking for.

I have good reason to believe that Jan Koller or Tore Andre Flo could be moving to the South London club within the fortnight.

A Russian friend of mine has also been Reading on Zenit St. Petersberg sites that Pavel Pogrebnyak may be heading to Palace to the dismay of their fans.

  I have been told by a source close to Tottenham that Ramos has asked about Peter Crouch. After weeks of negotiations, they agreed upon a swap deal invloving Berbatov. The move would see Liverpool cough up £12 million + their lanky front man for our talented Bulgarian. I hope it's true as I really rate Crouch and have been resigned to loosing Berbatov for weeks. Also on the other less fashionable side of North London, Samuel E'too has been spotted with Arsenal officials. Hope he moves there, he would ruin the club.

  Sorry to say this Arsenal fans but eto'o was not here on Thursday, I know this as I work there. Samir Nasri will sign Monday or Tuesday, arshavin will sign but only if Adebayor goes.

  Newcastle will sign Pablo Aimar for around £7 million and his team mate Diego Milito on loan. This will give Wise the chance to bring in and blood a new young forward ready for next season. They will soon be joined by fellow Argentine and headcase Fabricio Coloccini who maybe be a cheaper alternative to Ranger's Cuellar or Bilbao's Amorebieta with a cheeky for Javier Martínez as Bilbao see even a loan spell could benefit them either through experience or financially. He is the next bid thing thought to be knocking in Senna's door for his part in the Spainish squad.

ShoutE your man in Europe

  Newcastle have threir eye on Jérémy Menez of Monaco after loosing out on Modric. Menez is only 21 so this maybe a resonable choice as Aimar is not getting younger but there will be stiff competition but £12 million should do it.

  Duncan Ferguson will Not be Evertons no. 2 as he has no interest in football anymore. He has a lot of property in Spain and he is always there – mI can back this up as I spoke to him in Palma recently and he is investing heavily in property in Mallorca both time and money. And his Mrs is ALL Portals, where the Lampards are right now.

Maj Mag

  The rejected bid for Rangers forward Kris Boyd was from Birmingham City who will again continue bidding for the Scottish forward.

Jan Koller will be snapped up by the Blues as well.

In a surprise move Luke Wilkshire a Australian central midfielder currently playing for FC Twente will be signed. Probably the first thing McLaren will do as manager is accept a offer.

  Milner is the key to the Barry deal as Rafa will step aside once the price is right for Barry. I stated this about a month ago and now the papers are reporting it though rumours of a smoke screen, Mr Guillem Balague thank you seems to think it is actually a Spanish player they are after and close to agreeing. He knows this and is playing dumb as he is very close to several personel at Liverpool especially Sammy Lee. Fact

  Celtic have a Summer transfer budget of £16 million, this will be used for 4 top players to help Strachan make a push for 4 in a row and reach a Champions League quarter final place. top targets are pavlyuchenko (spartak) van buyten (Bayern) petrov (villa) and Mcfadden (Birmingham) trust in the stig

  My Uncle has seen several players at Anfield, as I said before, he is a groundsman, and before the Euros he saw queresma and Villa. and yesterday he saw queresma again in the stands? is he on the way to Liverpool

  West Bromwich have just completed the deal of the century for them signing George Boatang and have serious bids in for Carlton Cole and Philip Senderos.

  Norwich City next signing will be:

Andy Cole experienced forward seen in City on Friday by a lot of City supporters Check out Citys wrath of the barclay for evidence.

others to follow




The board has been backed by the Turners and later on will become joint shareholders with a billionaire which all I know of the name of callum

beleive me this will happen maybe not this season but definitely next year if not half way through the season.

Yellow Army

  Niko kranjar expected to move to Celtic from Portsmouth as a swap for Lee naylor and £3 million to Portsmouth as Harry redknap has already showen an interest in the Celtic winger

  LFC news I have a good laugh Reading some of the utter rubbish sent into this site, especially by particularly bitter Everton fans lol This is fact Rafa was in for Milner but the Geordies have over priced him and due to our tight cash flow and the fact he's not worth more than £5.5 million Rafa has told them to shove it. Rafa is not in for Bentley as Bentley is holding out for the biggest contract offer and he will not be held to ransom. Rafa cannot afford David Villa and Silva and will only go for one of them, probably Silva with Villa staying in La Liga. Rafa will also offer £4 million for Wayne Bridge on July 1, and if he gets him will cancel the Dossena deal freeing up extra £3 million to spend on a forward. We will probably only see Degen/Dossena or Bridge/Silva and a forward as yet unnamed this season. Rafa may also try for a loan of a midfielder to cover the early part of the season, although I have heard he looked hard at Diarra at Pompey. AND YES we are contenders this year, TORRES top scorer as Ronaldo sets La Liga on fire


Hoyte willstay at Arsenal. After two seasons he will become CD (Gallas replacement)

Wenger is clever because he knew his targets are not in euro squad.

A central defender is needed. But Wenger will explode

norveidt into the scene.

Jack wilshire will be given direct chance. by the end of season He will become Hleb Replacement.

Arsenal will buy Villa.

Adebayor is leaving because Wenger need to keep Bendtner.

  Crystal Palace have made an offer for Kris Boyd from Rangers. It's likely that the club do not have enough funds to secure the deal but I just thought that I would pass this on.

  Looks like Rangers are going to offload Kris Boyd if their vauation of around £5 million is met. Cardiff offered £2.5 million and while this was rejected they were encouraged enough to up their offer.

  To the dumbass who said Eto'o stopped in Arsenal yesterday, I am in kenya for hiliday and he's been here for a week. get youre rumours straight person.

  Glasgow Rangers are about to go Dutch again, look out for the signing of the A. Z. hard tackling left sided midfielder Stin Schaars (£4. 80 million) and they are rumoured to be negotiating to bring back Gio V. Bronkhorst, he has always maintained he would return Rangers.

  My grandad works as a camera man 4 Liverpool and when he went in to Anfield to do an interview he saw David Bently leaving the Liverpool reception and over heard the woman saynig go left which is to the boardroom he told me possible 4 a meeting with Rafa keep you updated on any news btw please post it because it's 100 percent true

  Inside source at Sunderland tells me Royston wants to buy Evans for £6 million, expect another attempt to sign Baines who has wasted a season at Everton for around the same money Everton paid for him, everyone knows about McGeady and Bent Roy will beat O'Neill to sign Shaun Wright–Phillips from Chelsea to give the team width down the right something we have missed in Carlos Edwards absence. two more signings expected another CH and a DM. Possibly some back up for Bardo maybe Hoyte or Simpson on loan.

  Everton to sign McGregor for £2.5 million DONT MAKE ME LAUGH, he is Scotlands Best keeper since Andy Goram and is worth at least £10 million ESPECIALLY if it's the Premier League that comes calling, but we will not sell him anyway.

To the boy who said Shittu is going to Celtic instead of Rangers for 3. 5 PLUS Nakamura–GET REAL, I THINK NOT, you should stick to Champ Man.

Klasnic is not going to Rangers, heard Wigan are talking to him, clearly Rangers do not need anymore squad players, I keep hearing Scott Brown and Riordan are going to Rangers, it just keeps coming up in conversation.

Sean Maloney is another who would be welcomed at Ibrox.

Think the next player on Rangers Radar is a magical midfielder, (although we still need a partner for Cuellar and a Right Back) knowing Walter Smith as I do, I think any of the above three players could do it and include Mcfadden in that to play behind Lafferty, Boyd and Miller. (Velicka will also be very good for us)

Charlie Miller is coming back to play for Alex Rae at Dundee. Hopefully.

Gomis from Dundee United could be going to Rangers if they do not get the boy from AZ Alkmaar. Left sided midfielder but Lovenkrands will probably be the player.

And Billy Davies is not out of the Hearts running for manager. Best candidate.

Jimmy Calderwood wants Alan Gow as does Dundee United, do not think we will be doing either of them any favours though. Loan only.

Berra and Reynolds could complete the Rangers Jigsaw for 2008/2009.

Last word on the English Premier League–Do not know how old or how silly some of the people are who post on this, but some teams are getting rid of 11 players and signing 11 new players, DONT THINK SO, You may find, Chelsea do a good bit business new manager new ideas, Man United to strenghthen again after losing Cristiano, Liverpool usually buy 1 cracker and 6 squad players and Arsenal just do not spend at all. So to say Villas going here, Robinho there, Sneijder here, Podolski there is RUSBBISH, just wait and see, Newcastle will probably do most business as they need to. Tottenham have done good business as they ALWAYS do, they just do not deliver on the park, ever.

  stoke news

Tony Pulis is chasing Charlton hard to get hold of Marcus Bent recently returned from a successful loan spell with Wigan. He sees him as the obvious foil for Ricardo Fuller who has th epace and stength but lack the experience which Bent will bring. Pulis is not willing to pay more than #2 million. Alan Pardew is likey to see that as reasonable money for the experienced forward.
