21 Mar 2012 22:16:17
Warren Cummings, Mark Moseley and Stephen Purches all set to leave the club at the end of the season in search for first team football. It is also rumoured that Cherries legend Steve Fletcher is set to hang up his boots at the end of the 2011-12 season.(5)(4)


21 Mar 2012 22:12:49
Bournemouth have also expressed an interest in Chesterfield goalkeeper Tommy Lee after pressure from the Dean Court faithful to sign a new keeper.(1)(6)


21 Mar 2012 22:10:16
Norwich City defender Russell Martin, 26, insists speculation regarding himself, 25 year old Andrew Surman, Anthony Pilkington, 23 and captain Grant Holt, 30, will not result in a mass exodus at Carrow Road.(5)(10) 

Unlikely seeing all have long term contracts and will not move unless unrealistic offers and interest in them will not be forthcoming since all dropped off in form. Rangers bid of £500k for Grant H before they went bust was laughable £2m for the 30 year old might just interest.Yer it will£2m very funny£2,000 000 for Club and Team Captain who has scored double figures in his first season in the EPL. Okaaay


21 Mar 2012 22:09:39
nuri sahin to manchester united.
Quality player only started one game
all season and last season's player of
the year in germany.

Could add that missing bit of quality in
the middle of the park.(16)(11)He didnt play cuz he was injured and then didnt get back into the first team

Miles Addison set to sign perminately for the Cherries after a successful loan spell.(8)(5) 



21 Mar 2012 20:36:15
billy sharp to joint ipswich on loan(6)(26)Why would he do that? No benefit to him or Saints, only to Ipswich. He is in the Saints 16 for every recent match and a loan move would bring the chance of injury with no benefit whatsoever.
Rubbish rumour.Where the hell did you dig this one up from, if Billy went anywhere it would probably be back to Donny, although he like's Ipswich he wont come here as he's proved when he was approached in the transfer windowDon't be stupid...with Connolly injured (frequently i may add), Barnard not getting a berth, and with Tadanari nursing an ankle really think we would give away a £2mil signing that is still looking to make an impression. Its been a tough year for Billy, and im sure wherever he went it would take a while to settle in, especally with a team that is high flying. Either way, don't see him leaving when he's close to first starting 11This rumour may have been accurate back in the summer when we went in for him but its long dead now he's at saints


21 Mar 2012 20:43:32

Dougie Freedman is chasing out of contract ex-Chelsea midfielder Jacob Mellis.(16)(5)He's training with BurnleyNot out of contract, it was terminatedSurely if he no longer has a contract with chelsea weather its expired or been terminated he is still out of contract? Being a bit pedantic I think

20 Mar 2012 22:50:03
Jon Douglas to swindon on loan until the end of the season(2)(11)Total rubbish we wouldnt have him back and dont want him back as he was part of the team that got us relegated and couldnt give a toss about the club and under Paolo he wouldnt cope with his training regime. He's better off where he is at Brentford as they wont be going anywhere whereas we are on the rise with Paolo at the helm.Not wanted..not needed. We are a club on the up, He does not have the passion or the desire to survive at Swindon under the superb guidance of PDC. The players coming in now are ones that will help the club challenge for promotion from Division One next season i.e Holmes and Cleverley are both quality players who are out of contract in the Summer, PDC will see how they perform until the end of the season then take them on free's for the new campaign if they show the quality we know they possess. People like Jon Douglas can stay at Brentford thank you very much!!


20 Mar 2012 22:09:11
Jacob mellis to Middlesbrough in the next 48 hours on a free transfer(11)(26)

Bournemouth and barnsley interested in sheffield wednesday striker chris o'grady(15)(11)


20 Mar 2012 15:34:09
Liverpool will make David ''Junior'' Hoilett their first summer signing, the 21-year old Canadian will be a free agent this summer however Liverpool will have to pay Blackburn a compensation fee.(31)(26)No they won't, he wants to go to london!!He has bigger ambition than playing for Liverpool .Doubt it......even he will want to play champions league next season considering the form he is in top clubs will be after him. You'll never win all...Must have imagined that cup final a few weeks ago


20 Mar 2012 14:36:06
Charlton to make a double loan raid on b

20 Mar 2012 13:14:25
wolves are looking to sign Jacob Butterfield for free at the end of the season when his contract is up.(6)(40)They cannot sign him for free even though
his contract is up .He his under 24 and if the
clubs cannot agree a fee it goes to a tribunalWhy would he sign for a club with no ambition, not that he is any good.


20 Mar 2012 10:51:35
sotons david connelly and colchesters steven gillespie sign before thursdays deadline {Ed025's Note - for who?..(1)(7)Why would Connelly move when he is very much involved in a promotion push, but is unavailable through injury at the moment?
Try and speak with a little knowledge of what you refer to.Who for burger man


20 Mar 2012 10:37:54
Huddersfield Town looking at Preston midfielder Paul Coutts(21)(1)Not a chance if he leaves he will join a championship club and he.s well overated anyway.


20 Mar 2012 10:21:23
leicester are trying too sign Jamie Vardy for £ 2M And Jordan Rhodes for £5.5M And kasper Schmiechel is set to leave for aston villa £5m(3)(38)I'm a Leicester fan and I can't see it. In my view Pearson pushed the boat out when he bid £1m for a non league striker, can't see the value doubling.
I'm sure Jordan Rhodes will be on his way to a Premier League side in the summer, despite being an optimist and a huge fan of Nigel Pearson that ain't happening this year.
Finally Villa bid £5 million when they are cutting back? They also bought Shay Given last year and put him on a long contract and Kasper is good, but not that good.Kasper Schmeichel is not worth 5 quidVilla who have given,guzan & siegrist? o.OKasper schmeichel is a quality keeper leicester wont let him leave, they dont need the money



20 Mar 2012 10:15:47
Reading have contacted free agent Jacob Mellis after his sacking by Chelsea about a move to the Berkshire club. Reading have tried to organise a deal for him in the last couple of transfer windows and although Mellis had been keen Chelsea did not want to let him go out at the time.(8)(25)Heard a rumour that Mellis has spoken to Saints about joining,he enjoyed his spell down here before and would quite like to link up with Jack Cork again.He was fired as he was the one who set the stink bomb off, wrong attitude for ReadingA smoke bmb is hardly a pub brawl is is it? Reading and most other clubs in the country will be looking at him. Kids...


20 Mar 2012 10:13:53
Something is happening at Wolves. I am hearing big rumours that Morgan is on the verge of bringing in a foreign manager, if not now then at the end of the season, regardless of what division we are in. Im hearing that although no names have been mentioned that this is a Spanish manager/coach and that he is currently working with a club in the top half of La Liga and is there head coach. Please dont shoot the messenger! Im only passing on what i have heard coming out of Molineux.(6)(27)Ive heard its Thomas Tuchel from the BundusligaFantastic - wonder what he'll make of our 'players'Stop making things up.

Steve Bruce will take over in the summer.Something's happening all right,you're going down,what a way to screw up a great football club.Feel so sorry for the Wolves fans,they deserve so much better.Thank you we doKnow what it feels like mate,Saints nearly went thanks to a big-headed red faced buffoon who thought he had all the answers about football when all he really knew about was hockey,duck shooting,
and making money for himself and his cronies.Some of these tassers are shameless,they care nothing for the club or the fans.Good luck.The sooner thick morgan and poxey moxey leave our club the better.


20 Mar 2012 10:07:54
Ronnie Moore is set to pull off a shock loan transfer deal with Dale Jennings set to return on loan from Bayern Munich until the end of the season. Tranmere are sitting just 6 points above the relegation zone and the additional firepower of Jennings should be enough to secure their League One status for another season.(6)(6)Bit sad making fake rumours


20 Mar 2012 10:05:14
Sigurdsson linked with Liverpool.(21)(24)Great wee player, 10x the player Adam is.As a reading fan very please about this, would have been gutted to see him go to Swansea, best player I've ever seen play for reading, obviously that doesn't mean a great deal but sidwell went to Chelsea O.o.....And reading


20 Mar 2012 09:54:52
Kurt Leach set to sign for Bristol City on a season longs loan from non league FC Copenbadly, McInnes could sign the 16 year old on a perminant basis in the summer. It is reported that Boreham Wood are also intrested in the talented young winger.(1)(6)Clever, nice one.......The most shocking thing about this rumour is that it appears that FC Copenbadly are not a joke club! They actually exist! Who'd have thought...


20 Mar 2012 09:31:39
Preston North End are set to sign former Barnsley midfielder Goran Lovre.(10)(4)


20 Mar 2012 09:30:40
Sheffield United have made a bid to sign former Cardiff defender Gabor Gyepes on a free transfer until the end of the season.(2)(7)He is set to join pneHe was at pompey last nightCart horse.


20 Mar 2012 09:28:23
Dinamo Zagreb have made a summer bid for Bayern Munich and Croatia striker Ivica Olic.(8)(3)Bid? he'll be able to transfer for free.


20 Mar 2012 09:27:07
Tranmere boss Ronnie Moore has stated he would like to bring in Hull winger Jamie Devitt in the summer on a free transfer if he is to become manager on a full time basis.(4)(4)Why would anyone expect to get him on a free? (his contract doesn't run our until the end of the 2013 season)


20 Mar 2012 09:25:18
Watford are keen on signing West Ham striker Freddie Sears for around £600,000 in the summer.(10)(12)£600,000 ??

No way can we afford that kind of cash. Especially for a relatively unproven player.

Plus, we have strength in depth in the midfield department.If bolton stay up dont watford get an extra million for the sordell sale, possible money there?

bs18Thats a BIG IF!!!


20 Mar 2012 09:24:22
Burnley have made a £750,000 summer bid for Uruguayan midfielder Diego Arismendi from Stoke.(5)(12)


20 Mar 2012 08:38:49
Chelsea are set to speak to German club Mainz about their manager Thomas Tuchel. The 38 year old is wanted by a number of European clubs to be their new boss in the summer after turning the 'small' German side into Bundesliga challengers.(2)(11)Haven't Chelsea just been down this road?Challenging for mid table or europa league


20 Mar 2012 07:10:39
Steve Bruce has turned down the offer of a 12 month rolling contract to become the new manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Steve Morgan wanted him to take charge as from today (Tues) but Bruce feels the club have become a laughing stock and are guarenteed relegation. I believe that Morgan now feels that he has no chouce but to stick with Terry Connor for the remainder of the season. Morgan was talked into the appointment of Conner by CEO Jez Moxey but now realises the club have made a massive error. I am also lead to believe that there is absolutely no truth in the rumour circulating around Wolverhampton that Morgan is looking to get rid of Jez Moxey and then reappoint Mick McCarthy in the summer. It was Morgans decision to part compant with MM and that Moxey was against the idea.(16)(6)


20 Mar 2012 07:20:37
Reading fc team in premier league

Mackeil Smith(3)(34)Someones confident..I think you will find they are all in retirement by the time you make the Premiership!
Take a look at what happened with Huddersfield last season.God help you then, you'll be down by Christmas!No wayThink Reading will be a bit better with a take over soonWait till you get there mate yeahLol Mackail Smith, who isnt good enough for the Championship, will suddenly be in the premier league?That team will be relegated with fewer points than Derby County mustered under Billy Davis WORSE TEAM IN HISTORYReading will get promoted and do well but if this is their team well i dont no what to sayConnolly? Mark Connolly from bolton?
Bertrand realistic, Owen and sigurrdsson will never.


20 Mar 2012 04:02:29
To the poster who had qpr in 16th place, u are having a laugh they are going down with wolves blackburn(9)(9)Dont you mean Wolves and WiganBlackburn will stay up, im pleased for manager after stick he got


20 Mar 2012 03:38:13
Before norwich city fans are knocked bye fans from that very poor tean down the road. These yobs spiting pushing kids. Before we gave tgen good stuffing last season. Joke of a football club selling tickets to city fans. In home parts there ground. There is no proof norwich fans were to blame damage to the garden i hope who ever it was is caught.(4)(5)And again, in English please - or do you have trouble typing because of the number of fingers you have?Your grammar is shocking."Twelve toes, he's only got twelve toes"Yes damage after a Newcastle V Norwich game to an England and ex Ipswich legend's memorial. Of course, it was not Norwich fans was it? lets blame the Newcastle fans shall we?It was a disgraceful act by a small minoirty of Norwich fans that has put shame on your club. As an Ipswich fan whilst I don't like Norwich I have always respected your club and the vast majority of your supporters good name has been tarnished by these minority of idiots. You awful post only incriminates you more.Unlike you most Norwich and Ipswich fans actually have respect, somethign you lack in spades.Better be careful he may get angry and bring his family after you all 20,000 of them


19 Mar 2012 20:55:15
Sheffield United will sign Greg Halford on loan from Portsmouth for the remainder of the season.(19)(19)


19 Mar 2012 18:27:12
Jupp Heynckes is set to hold talks with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy. The Bayern Munich boss is keen on managing in England before his coaching career ends and could replace Harry Redknapp in the summer if the former Portsmouth boss decided to take up the England managers' role.(1)(20)

19 Mar 2012 17:17:10
Burnley forward Danny Ings to sign For Portsmouth On Loan until end of season with Jason Pearce going the other way

Ings will also spend some of next season at Pompey while Pearce will sign for 500,000 at end of season(7)(22)Even their rumours are rubbish!
I can see no player, or club making an agreement with Pompey for next season when there is no certainty of the club existing next season. Why would any player commit himself to a club that could fold?
Some of the Pompey supporters still do not grasp the position their club is in.Soon be able to call surnley
bourneley if antmore ex cherries players
go there but none of them have
bettered themselves they just followed howe abd for tke moneyThink Ipswich are the front runner for Pearce


19 Mar 2012 16:46:12
Southend United's Bilel Mohsni to sign on loan for the rest of the season with promtion rivals Crawley Town. This will go through on Thursday.

To appease the fans Freddy Eastwood will be coming in on loan from Coventry to the end of the season.(11)(12)Moshini is an person and the biggest diver and cry baby in L2 and he will deserve to be with Evans at Crawley. It seems like Evans is collecting all the person players having just got Leon Clarke as well so they will all be well suited to each other.Mohsni to Crawley is a done deal - Sturrock is a fool. Ferdinand, Harris, Paterson, Grant and Barker are all desperate to get away from Southend but all will now wait till the summer. Gutted about Mohsni, our best player and yet he's being booted out.


19 Mar 2012 16:19:58

19 Mar 2012 15:15:57
Liverpool will join the chase for Birmingham City teenager Jack Butland in the summer and hope a £3million plus choice of young talent will tempt the blues into doing a deal.(5)(22)Wishful thinking by the scousers, add another £10 million to it and Blues might consider it.Hes not actually doing that well at Cheltenham IMHO


19 Mar 2012 15:12:00
Rohan Ricketts is to decided between Exeter City and Cheltenham Town who have both offered the player a return to English football until the end of the season.(7)(6)


19 Mar 2012 14:53:50
portsmouth fc squad on the next season:

5-matt ritchie
18-vanden borre
26-ben haim

all back to portsmouth fc(6)(51)How you gunna pay that team in non league?And how are you going to pay the wages for all these players? or have you found someone with pots of cash and severe mental problems that is willing to invest in a club with a history of financial mismanagement?Wishful thinkingNudge,nudge,you can wake up now......
Deluded Skaterboy,Ha HaWhat part of broke are you not getting!

After the league support runs out what will stop liquidation - administration only works when a broadly viable business is lost in a mess of debt - Portsmouth are totally dead in the water - big debts / no assets. The only positive is the quantity of support - but that will be tested when next years season tickets have to be sold but you don't know for certain which league or at which groundIts paying wages for the likes of Piquionne, Van Den Borre etc that has put Pompey in the position they find themselves. Next season it will more likely be a squad of youngstersGood luck when you wont even exist as a team at the end of the season.Get real at number 9The ONLY reason the FA gave that early money was to get you to the end of the season, and save the embarrassment of adjusting the championship.GET REAL Next season is non league if you are lucky {Ed025's Note - you seem to delight in the misfortune of a club in trouble! really are a piece of work!!Pompey really are an embarrassment to English football. Buy Promotion, Buy the FA cup, Get liquidated twice in three years. Put "football" Debts before paying Charities and Schools then win "family club of the year" and "community club of the year". I'm not delighted by any stretch of the imagination, i'm embarrassed to be a football fan {Ed003's Note - You are that embarrased to be a football fan yet you still continue with your digs! ? }Was this posted at the start of the 2009/10 season?!!Liquidated twice you say? Don't you mean administration twice? Get your facts correct before posting please.Are the Eds Pompey fans ? Bye Bye Pompey ;0) {Ed003's Note - Nope}Dont you mean get real 1- 11?Nobody should want to see other clubs fold. Just hope it doesnt happen to your club in this financial climate!! CCFC


19 Mar 2012 14:53:48
Information coming from inside the club are not good morale wise! Saunders has realisied he made a mistake dropping Hird for Martis, & not rotating a number of players from the Reading game for the "unexpected" hard working Derby side. Saunders view is other teams will stop Rovers playing by using their own tactics against them & he doesn't have an alternative way of playing.
The loan players & those from the original squad don't see eye to eye with Beye already moving next year to Paris St Germain, & Diouf likely to go to West Ham now Big Sam has proved his point to the West Ham chairman about the player. The "old guard" previously under SOD don't want to play in league one & several are waiting for SOD to take the reins at Nottingham Forest at the end of the season. The likely exits to Forest could be O'Connor, Coppinger, Hayter (although Bournemouth would be interested) & Stock.
If Rovers go down (& the feeling is that this is now likely after last Saturday) the club will have to rebuild totally, as there is little money to make an immediate return, & possibily could also lead to the loss of Husband as well from the youth team.
In short not good times ahead!(5)(8)You know its bad when the majority of your team are living in The Crown Hotel Bawtry instead of buying houses/renting flats etc. Always going to be a flawed strategy and has proved such.Saunders made some strange decisions as wrexham manager. Hoof ball merchant that when he went we all said he would take donny down. Poor manager!!


19 Mar 2012 14:49:39
why would saints buy from
championship if were promoted defently not
rejects that could not cut it last year and
got relegated buy the way sothampton
are the best playing side in the league
said bye a number of pundits this year,
and has grant hoult been found out
in prem coz hes a lump,and if some one scores
like lambo he wont have a problem(8)(3)Despite your exceptionally poor grammar making it incredibly difficult to read your post, I'd like to point out that Swansea seem to be doing okay with people they bought from the Chanpionship. Danny Graham is in double figured I believe.Southampton dropped six points to Leicester this season and they are awful. Reading are the best footballing side in the Championship this season not Saints. If it wasn't for Lambert you would be nowhere.Leicester are nowhere despite having 'the most potent strike force in the championship' ha!Lambert is not fit to lace holts boots. Saints have good players will do ok nx season


19 Mar 2012 14:48:52
on the next season stephen henderson, luke varney, david norris, liam lawrence, dave kitson all exit portsmouth fc(20)(2)Exit what? Portsmouth wont exist next seasonIm a bristol city fan i wish portsmouth its not nice to hear about any team going out of the league goodluck portsmouthThanks to the Bristol City fan for you support. not much of a rumour this one considering Henderson and Lawrence have already left on loan with views to permanent moves. As for Kitson I'll pay his taxi fare myself to leave.Bit obvious this one. Could add a few more names to the list. Hardly Mystic Meg!Henderson should go to newcastle


19 Mar 2012 13:44:18
Barnsley will be releasing at least five players in the summer .,among those to go could be gray, foster,taylor ,preece and possibly one that could upset
fans bobby hassell .This would get rid of some of the
high earners at the club to free up money for new
players that will take the club forward(4)(8)More likely to take club BACKWARDS has repla cements be from League 2 where WE ARE HeadingCryne has t go asap aswell pleaseYou lot live in cuckoo land we would not have a club to support if it wasn't for Patrick cryne n we are trying to make a profit as a club that's why we are getting rid of the high earners.

Get a gripI have got a grip its u wot wants to wake up theres only one way way were going trust me!!!


19 Mar 2012 11:50:52
Millwall take Sheff Utd's Nick Montgomery on loan for rest of season. Millwall def need a bit of a bite in midfield, Trotter out for next few games with the others clearly not stepping up to the mark. KJ needs to shore up the defence though(9)(4)

19 Mar 2012 06:33:32
Gylfi has always kept in touch. With Brian mac. All I will say is watch this space! As for Ryan. A deal is already on the cards !(8)(14)He was down at the training ground before he signed on loan for Swansea, we still don't have a chance of signing him!Brian Mac may keep in touch with him, but didn't he play at reading under Brendan Rogers whose team he is on loan at now? Id say that's more than "keeping in touch" that Brian Mac is apparently doing..... clutching at straws reading fans
