Can I ask why there is a lot of rumours surrounding Joaquin going to Everton? He's is a long standing know target of Liverpool and Benitez so surely if he's going to go anywhere in England it could quite possibly be there. Benitez has always stated that Liverpool need more width surely he's a player that can add that and with a price tag of roughly £12 million surely that would price Everton out as they need to sign a few players rather than just one or two big names?

There are also some strong rumours that DIC will be making another bid for Geroge Gilletts stake in Liverpool at the begining of June with the American willing to accept what is offered.

Also I saw Peter Crouch with Abbey Clancy in the Albert Dock recently and I asked him about his future and he said (from the horses mouth) "In all probability I will be re–joining Portsmouth" He did not disclose any fees or dates but he was sure he would be moving there.

  I have been talking with a younger member of the Tottenham squad.

He himself looks like going to Leyton Oreint for a small fee. But he has confirmed some Comolli younger deals and backup players. Bostock will be complete soon as he was at Tottenham Lodge, Also Tarrabatt wants OUT, Bordeaux are really kean, but will not spend much. Two lads from Coventry are apperntly on the radar Danns, Fox. Also Fulop to return as backup keeper ROBBO, sold up and is renting awaiting return North Borro faves, also ManCity maybe interested. Kevin Doyal of Reading has agreed a five year deal, with 2 younger lads going there Perkhat and Rose. Tottenham are also looking at Cardiff Ramsey and Ledley and Leeds Howson, also Zarate has been to Tottenham Lodge.

  Glasgow Rangers In: Lee Wallace (Hearts) Mark Reynolds (Motherwell) Kenny Miller (Derby) Alan Smith (Newcastle possibly for Cuellar along with some cash) Steve Davis (Fulham) on permanent deal in swap with cousin) David Healy (Fulham) Kyle Lafferty (Burnley) Klasnic (Werder Bremen) Gattuso (Milan) possibly one or two Smith knows from Scotland set up E. g Garry O'Connor slightly more unrealistic Out: Cousin (Fulham For Davis) Buffel Faye (Back to Charlton) Gow (Hearts or Aberdeen) Hemdani and unfortunately possibly Boyd to down south

  Quaresma of Porto is highly fancied by Carlos Quieroz, as he and Sir Alex feel that Park has reached his highest level, and improvement on the flank is needed when Ronaldo plays up front. Expect a bid in the region of 16–18 million to get their man. Dani Alves is also being seriously considered for right–back; Neville is in the twilight of his career, and Alves offers more going forward than Brown. Palacios/Valencia of Wigan will not be coming; they are not United pedigree.

These will be the only major signings, Sir Alex feels that we are well–placed to dominate England and Europe for the next few seasons, as he put it in the Independent: 'Europe's face will feel the full force of the red Jack–boot, and will have to comply with our supreme vision'.



Darren Fletcher



  Inside source from LCFC. Leicester scouts are currently looking at Torquay's Chris Robertson as a young centre–back following Torquay's failure to be promoted.


  Wenger will sign a keeper and has been keeping strong eye on Frey– he had him watched in the UeFa Cup semi–final, he will also will sign a defender who is extremely good in the air, likely to be Lucio or Wheater and milligan as understudy to Sagna– and that is the defense sorted.

Midfield will be where there will be the most movement as he wants to bring in replacement for Flamini– likely to be Yaya Toure or Monkoun. He also wants two wingers and an attacking midfielder– likely to be Young, Nasri and BenArfa.

No forwards will be brought in unless a bargin pops up.

  Rangers transfers: Darren Fletcher, del pierro, Lee wallace, huddlestone, Healy, Mcfadden, Alan Smith, Gattuso. Scott brown?. Expect a maximum of 2 Europeans coming in as the management team like to have a british style and players who understand what it means to play for Rangers. PS. Beckham is not going to Derby (obviously.), Henry are not going to Villa (wake up.), Owen is not going to Everton and I very much doubt that Cuellar will leave Rangers as he has said on numerous occasions that he wants to stay, however, if an offer of around £11 million comes in then expect him to be pushed out the door like hutton

  Zenit st Petersburg's impressive left back Aynlakov has been seen in meetings with a Liverpool representative

  Forget all the stories about Liverpool signing 40 players, here are some real transfer facts:

Cristiano Ronaldo will sign for Real Madrid in the Summer for a record £106 million. Even Man United cannot knock that back. Expect this huge fee to fund a transfer bonanza at Old Trafford, incoming players:

Micah Ricahrds, Veloso, Huntelaar, Quaresma.

Liverpool will sign Owen from Newcastle and THAT IS ALL.

Chelsea will sign Eto'o, Arshavin and Berbatov

Arsenal will sign Nasri and Ben arfa.

NO CHANCE IN HELL of Kaka, Ronaldinho or Messi in EPL next season. Expect Kaka and Ronaldinho to swap clubs, Messi will not be going anywhere.

  I would just like to confirm the rumour regarding Clive Platt and Leo Fortune–West heading in the direction of Crystal Palace.

My source tells me that Warnock felt as if he was missing a 'target–man' style forward and that this was their downfall during the playoff semi–final against Bristol City. Therefore a player like Leo or Clive fits the bill.

One of these is almost certain to happen. remember I was the one to inform you all about John Bostock moving to the Premier League (I know I said Manchester City but this seemed to panic Tottenham into making a move).

Keep an eye out for more info from me.

  Nottingham Forest are also chasing highly rated Derby County defender Lewin Nyatanga, Leicester City's Matt Oakley and Iain Hume. Also now Kris Commons has left Forest will chase another Derby man David Jones for £1 Million.

  LFC Rumours

It now seems certain that Rafa has agreed a fee in the region of £12 million to sell Alonso to Juve. Rafa will use the cash to meet asking price for Barry at £15–£18 million or £10–£12 million + Carson. This will only happen if Barry asks for a transfer and Rafa meets asking price. With extra cash from Alonso sale expect a bid for quality forward to replace Crouch. Money would be on Hunteelar but this is only speculation not fact. While English players are more costly they are good value for money with current weak pound in Europe. Torres cost approx £30 million euro or £20 million pound in 2007. Torres in 2008 would cost £24 million pound or + £4 million.

Genuine Scouser

  Newcastle will not be getting Hedwiges Maduro from Ajax as he plays for Valencia. They have however enquired regarding Diego Milito of Zaragoza as well as the midfield pair of Alberto Zapater and Pablo Aimar although the latter is thought to be in talks with his old manager at Liverpool.

Newcastle have also been told to wait on the Gomis deal so they are now looking at Mario Gómez who may come a little cheaper as £12 million should be enough whereas St–Étienne are waiting for £18 million for Gomis.


  Martin Taylor of Birmingham in talks with Norwich City.

  Tottenham want to sign up Stoke youngsters Anthony Pulis and Lewis Buxton

  Southampton FC will spend very little, if any, money this year. Lowe and Wilde are back in power and will be looking at restructuring the clubs finances. They are losing something like £100,000 per month.

If Pearson stays (unlikely) he may be given a role as Head Coach with a Director of Football to work with him. Rumourspaper rumours suggest both Allardyce and Hoddle are being targeted as manager, again this is unlikely. Expect a young, ambitious and cheap manager, such as Mike Newell to come in as he has experience unlike Pearson.

Expect to see Alexander Ostlund, Inigo Idiakez, Darren Powell, Mario Licka, Jermaine Wright and Simon Gillett released (maybe one or two being retained if wages are cheap) Dyer is on his way to Portsmouth, Southampton will get a nominal fee as compensation, Makin and Lundekvam retiered.

Kiegen Parker has recently said he is close to joining Southampton on a free transfer, if they are free Perry, Lucketti and Wright will be retained.

Southampton are hoping the huge amounts of money they plough into their youth system pays dividends again (Walcott, Bale, Bridge etc) Expect to hear a lot about Adam Lallana, Ollie Lancashire, Jamie White, David Mcgoldrick and Jamie Hatch amoung others.

Will not be any more, official or not, transfers until the managerial slot is sorted.

Saints minor shareholder and fan


  I'm pleased to say for Arsenal fans:

Expect three new signings in the next 48 hours

Clement Chantome (cm) undisclosed fee.

Francis Cocquelin (dm) undisclosed fee.

Samir Nasri (am) £10 million fee.

Possible signings:

Mark Milligan

Sebastian Frey

Remember the name: Conor. H04

  I have strong inside information suggesting that the following transfers will take place by the end of end of May, or by the start of the European championships. Samir Nasri – Marseille to Arsenal – £11.9 million Hossam Ghaly – Derby to Blackburn – N/A Gerard Pique – Man United to FC Barcelona – N/A Arda Turan – Galatasary to Newcastle – N/A Mauro Zarate – Al–Saad to Portsmouth – N/A Pablo Zabaleta – Espanyol to Manchester City – £14.8 million Loic Remy – Lyon to Tottenham – £3.9 million

Daniel Alves – Sevilla to Man United – £22.5 million

Andrea Dossena – Udinese to Liverpool – £9.0 million Mario Gomez – Stuttgart to Newcastle – £16.0 million

  Celtic will not sign a lot of players this Summer. Gordon has a great squad no matter who wins the league. Expect youngsters to come through more prominently next year, namely Sheridan, Caddis, Cuthbert, Mizuno and Hutchinson.

rest in peace tommy burns< you'll never walk alone

  My mrs is a cleaner at beScot, and she said she seen Paul merson there yesterday, and apparently rumour is that he is been lined up to be manager again.

  A few Tottenham rumours, I see that VI has grown a cense of humour stating CROUCH is on his way to either SPURS or CHELSEA if that and those you get out the paper are the best you can do then give up. also to the STOKE guy who called STOKES bid of £10.5 million for SPURS' BENT and O'HARA? audacious? I think you mean fantasy you would'nt get one of those for that price and especially as O'HARA has signed a new contract now that OL' JR is in SPAIN it seems clear he will be tie'ing up a few deals. the deal for ETO'O was and never going to happen he (ETO'O) was only fourth choice behind MILITO, MORENO and VILLA two of which will happen. the deal to sign CAPEL from the SPANISH AGENCY CONSULTING PLANESA will also go through. two other pieces of gossip, the deals regarding BLACKPOOL to sign the brother's JOE MARTIN (SPURS) and DAVID MARTIN (THE PUDDLERS) will only be on loan, also someone (i wonder who? ) stated about DAVID VILLA going to the gurners "cause cesc said so"? next time you watch his tv show listen to it as well just watching it. he was asked who he would like not who there getting. silly boy.

m. e. h. s. t. g

  Mate of mine works at the Molineux and I can clarify that these are the following players that Mick McCarthy is looking to bring In:

Christophe Berra (Hearts, £3 million)

Sam Vokes (Bournemouth, £500 k–£1 million)

Tony Capaldi (Cardiff, Straight swap for Eastwood + Bothroyd)

David Jones (Derby, £1 million)

Steve Howard – only if we do not get Sam Vokes (Leicester, £1 million)

Kris Commons (Nottingham Forest, Free)

Chris Gunter (Tottenham, Loan)

  Just to clarify some things on this board:

1. ATLETICO ARE PLAYING CHAMPIONS LEAGUE. this Spanish table is not based on GD but rather head–to–head statistics and Atletico got the better of Sevilla this yr.

2. VALENICA will PLAY IN EUROPE NEXT YEAR. although they failed to qualify for the Champions League, they WON THE COPA DEL REY (excuse spelling) and as such will play in the UEFA cup. still could see an exodus though as they were reliant on the marketin from Champions League.

Onto on rumour I know of, and that is that Aston Villa are close to securing the signings of Sidwell (£6 million) and Hoyte (£5 million). abit old but Sidwell has all but signed for somethin like £30 k a week

  Ibrahimovic is in talks with Man United over a 40 million pound move, but the deal could be brokered over Ronaldo's 70 million move to Real Madrid

  Hi, my name is kristian daly and my mum knows a secretary who works at Everton football club and these are the transfer news so far:


Arshavin= £9.5 million

Sidwell= £4.5 million

Joaquin= £12 million

Owen= £9 million (he will accept 45k, he supported Everton as a boy)

Also I have heard one or two rumours that we are going to make an audacious atempt to sign Ronaldinho for a cut price of £18 million.

Kristian daly– true blue.

  Crystal Palace hope to sign Kieran Westwood

  Ok, so Norwich may have £11 million to spend but that is not the second highest in the championship. it was well documented that when Marcus evans (in the tourism industry) took over he cleared the clubs debt (37 million) and ADDED £12 million to the clubs transfer funds.

with the club agree to him sponsporing Ipswich next season 9the shirts will read 'Marcus evans' instead of e–on) this transfer fund will be even larger.

so expect to see Nugent (if not then Healy will sign), mcauley from Leicester and thomas sorensen to replace bywater as his loan runs out in the Summer.

  Mark Yeates to have medical on Friday at Crystal Palace belived to be 750 k offer

  Noted–Harry Redknapp recieving a call from Ruud van Niselrroy. Is a move on the cards if Crouch goes elsewhere

  To the guy who wrote this "Why does it only ever seem to be Liverpool fans on this website? Anyway Atletico Madrid did not qualify for champs league as they finishedfifth in the league".

They finishedfourth mate and Seville finishedfifth. I would get your facts straight before making a fool of yourself next time.

Well here are some real facts.

Bentley will not be going to Liverpool as Rafa thinks he is over priced, he will go to Tottenham as at least they have some European football to come.

Liverpool will sign Left back Dosena, Bordeaux goalkeeper UlRich Rame, Espanyol winger Albert Riera, Kranjcar from Portsmouth.

Reserves will get a better shot becuase of Rafa's low spending budget and a lot of the Liverpool fans including myself do not think that this is at all a bad thing.

Look at for Nemeth, Insua, Plessis and spearing next season.

  Shevchenko to Stoke there is more chance of me being prime minister by next week.

Arsenal rumours however, Nasri has all but signed and Ben Arfa has already spoke with Marseille (spelling), as they will have the money to spend from Nasri.

As for Premier League signings, if Wenger wants a player we all know what happens.

–he goes and steals a younger version of FC Barcelona, however, this time I think it may well be Marquez in a swap deal with Gallas and cash going the other way if Gio dos Santos is in with the deal. Althouhg prising him from FC Barcelona could be difficult.

  Stoke to sign four players totalling £11 million one of which will be Zamora + two loan players one being Kewell

they will also sell recent signing Pugh to Burnley Simonsen to Cardiff City

  Arsenal FC news

ins –

Nasri – done deal £12 million

yaya Toure – £10 million (next Viera)

either dunne/wheater/lucio/albiol/thuram 2–10 million

Villa or Gomez £15 million depending on Adebayour

NO right winger will be signed theo will be given his chance there and if he dusent do well Rosicky will play there.

and then scouts will be going to the euro so there maybe more

outs –

Hleb – I do not know the situation but if he buys out his contract then around £5 million but if a team buys him around £15 million

Gilberto – 3–5

Senderos will be given another season

Adebayour – probally not but you never no

chrome arsenal fan

  Stoke are buying

tuncay from midlesborogh £1 mill

Ha Ha Ha That is the best one yet. I can tell you for a fact that Tuncay, Wheater and Downing will all be staying at Middlesbrough for the start of next season. Watch out for the club leaking bids for stars such as Ronaldinho and Riquelme. Won't get either but will boost ticket sales. Wigan have had a bid accepted for Cattermole.

  Agger are not moving out of Liverpool, he's just bought a new house in the area.

  Reynolds (Motherwell) – Celtic

  Expect Samir Nasri to arrive at the Emirates stadium shortly followed by Alberto Aquilani.

Tottenham are officially out the race to sign Eto'o.

  Notts Coutny will announce the signings of Anthony Barry and Matthew Hamshaw

  Philip Degen, Nicky Shorey, Gareth Barry, and Pablo Aimar will be Liverpool's Summer signings this year. Shorey will cost £6 million, Degen is a Free done deal, Barry's deal will involve player swaps but will be worth around £18 million and Pablo Aimar will cost just £4 million.

= v1=

  Middlesbrough want to sign Andrew Johnson from Everton and are happy to match the £8 million asking price. Southgate wants Tuncay to play on the right next season with Alves to line up alongside Johnson up front at the Riverside in a bid to push his side into the Top 10 atleast, if not Europe. He will also look to sign Paul Robinson from Tottenham and is also interested in Reading trio Bikey, Hunt and Shorey while Southgate also wants Birmigham's Fabrice Muamba.

= v1=

  Newly promoted Stoke have agreed to sign Leroy Lita from Reading and are in talks to sign Bobby Zamora as well from the Hammers.

= v1=

  Newcastle winger James Milner could be set to join Aston Villa in the Summer along with Steve Sidwell and Peter Crouch.

= v1=

  Rafa has come to his senses and is now prepared to let Carson go to AVfc for a measily £6 million but MON will not take up the bait as the price is 200 percent too much, £2 million is the real value. Instead he will go for Ben Foster on loan. Also Brad Guzen is still in the frame along wth Myhill. Also MON is definite that Barry will not leave for small change. He is an England regular. £25 million is the negotiable price, unlike some squad players being offered in exchange, Further more, despite what 'Pool supporters think, Henry is interested in MON's style and there is an excellent chance of him being in Claret and Blue next season. Sidwell is almost done and several other Premier League. players have been seen at VP. Wait and see. MON wants a minimum of third place next season and he aims to succeed.

  Just to let you know that j Riise has now left the building. Good luck and thanx john.

  Arsenal Info –

AW will make a few signings so Arsenal can challenge for the title and

let a few players go

Ins –

Samir Nasri (Will be announced soon)


Yaya Toure

Carlos Vela (Return from loan)

Outs –

Mathieu Flamini

Alexander Hleb

Justin Hoyte

Also Alberto Aquilani will not be coming to Arsenal as he wants to stay

at Roma. Finally to the people who say Athletico Madrid have not

qualified for the Champions League well they have.


  Stoke rumour.

Drogba is on his way for £25 million but fuller and lawerence will be on their way out to Chelsea as part exchange.

  MY son is a physio for Newcastle and he has heard of a Swap deal involving John Arne Riise and Beye. He's also heard of a £15 million bid from NUfc to FC Barcelona for Yaya Toure.

  Paul Lambert will be announced as the new Hearts manager next week.

  SAF wants to keep Pique so he will loan him out, and with Rangers progression in the Uefa and with him being a Scot he will let him go on season long loan to Ibrox. Also expect to see A Goal Keeper brought in and a RB and possibly Dos Santos or Huntelaar.

  Amadou Konte will return to Hibernian in the Summer from Serie B side Spezia.

  Anton Ferdinand will be leaving the Hammers this Summer for around £5 million with Middlesbrough and Portsmouth interested. Lucas Neill will also be leaving with Bayern Munich keen about the Aussie. Freddie Ljunberg will also be on the way out with Villareal ready to snap up the Swede. Dean Ashton could be off to Tottenham or Newcastle and Craig Bellamy is also a target for Wigan and former club Blackburn.

= v1=

  Just been speaking to a friend who was speaking to a friend of his, who by the way is a renowned journalist from Spain who appears regulary on British TV and he has confirmed that Arteta will return to Spain there are two bids on the table, one from Sevilla and the other from Villareal.

Also on his way from Goodison is Tim Cahill. not sure where but one bid is from a fellow Premier League side.

Man United to sell Pique, they are looking high and low for a goalkeeper, Ferguson thinks Van Der Saar not good enough now.

LFC to sign Joaquin, also Xabi is subject to a bid from Juve, this will not happen as Xabi would only leave LFC for Spain and does not want to Carry Momo Sisoko again. Expect the boardroom business to be sorted soon.

  Lee Bowyer could return to Charlton, while Iwelumo looks to be on his way out

  Charlton in

Fleetwood (Almost Definate)



Charlton out



Jerome Thomas to Fulham

  Arsenal to sign

Nasri £12 million

ben arfa 10

Lehmann – stuttgart

Flamini– ac done deal

Senderos Juve £5 million

Man United

dani Alves £12 million

benzema £30 million


Pique FC Barcelona £4 million

park dortmund £3 million

  My inside source at the Liverpool FC merchandise warehouse told me the "big boss" phoned and told them to order 1000 extra number 7s so they cope with demand for a new signing. Who could this be?

  Van nistelrooy has been seen getting shown around the Stadium of Light and the academy of light. A deal of around £7 million should prize him away from Madrid. One last crack at the E. p. l before he heads back to PSV. jonny evans will also sign permanently for £6 million. Expect Keane to go for arshavin who has been the star player for Zenit in the league and UeFa Cup this season. £12 million should get him. This leaves Keane with £25 million to spend.

  Liverpool will sign two more players for the frist team, one with experience and a young good prospect. The experienced one would probably be Barry and the young one will be Moreno who would be able to compete with Kuyt for a place in the right wing.

  Liverpool FC INS. David Silva £15 millionp+ Riise. Degen free. Vagner love £7 millionp+ Voronin. Dossena 8 mp

  heart of midlothian

Mikael buscher– (free agent ex–Gretna). mehdi–taouil (Kilmarnock). Alan gow– (Rangers). Mark kerr– (Dundee United).

Ronaldinho, Kaka, Ronaldo, Torres, Buffon, Messi, Pirlo, toni, Ballack, and Fabregas are all definitely not signing for Hearts.

  Gareth Southgate has made no secret of his ambitions for next season and as a result there will be big changes at the Riverside. I have it on good authority that the following transfers are in their advanced stages:


Kevin Nolan ( Bolton ) – 5 Mil

John Arne Risse ( Liverpool ) – 3.75 Mil

John O'Shea ( Man United ) – 2.5 Mil

Louis Saha ( Man United ) – 4.5 Mil

James Milner ( Newcastle ) 4 Mil

Paul Robinson ( Tottenham ) P/Exchange

Fabio Rochemback ( Sporting ) Free

Dong Gook Lee – Released

Mido ( West Bromwich ) 4 Mil

Middlebrough are aiming for European qualification through their League fininh next so Southgate has the full backing from Steve Gibson.

Antii Niemi (Fulham – Celtic)

Artur Boruc (Celtic – Aston Villa)

Scott Carson (Liverpool – Tottenham)

Paul Robinson (Tottenham – Middlesbrough)

= v1=

  I'm in the know here in Burnley as my best mate works for the club. The latest rumour surrounding our club is that Kyle Lafferty is definitely about to move on. Glasgow Rangers have made a bid, somewhere in the region of £3.5 million. Northern Irish international Lafferty is said to be extremely keen about the move as he is a childhood Bears supporter. Wolves are also interested, but Kyle's preference is Glasgow. Truth Teller.

  RANGERS could offer £1 million to Schalke 04 to bring forward Peter Lovenkrands back to Ibrox. The Dane has a year left of his three year deal and would jump at the chance to return to his former club.

Walter Smith see's him as the perfect foil to partner Kris Boyd up front next season in the new–look 4–4–2 formation and also as the perfect lone frontman for difficult away European ties.

If a deal cannot be reached with the German club only then will Rangers turn their attention to Derby's Kenny Miller.
