chattered to a report, who believe these are the players leaving the club and clubs must likely going to:

CRAIG GORDON is of to Celtic for Free

GEORGE McCARTNEY wants to stay in London and has been linked with Charlton, Millwall and WHU.

TITUS BRAMBLE is off to Ipswich

ASAMOAH GYAN is staying with Al-Ain, but Italian and French clubs are watching with interest in the hope the deal will fall.

AHMED ELMOHAMODY is off to Al-Ahly not in MON's plans.

MARCOS ANGELERI will be going back to Estudiantes.

CRISTIAN RIVEROS has a list a mile long of clubs who are interested in him: Boca Juniors, All Boys, Indendiente, Argentina Juniors, 6 other south American clubs, Kayserispor, Zaragoza, Mallorca, Bari, Palermo and Sampdoria.

MON is hoping to get 2 new strikers, left back, Left Wing and a play maker, Looking at all options for the Lads.

Think it will be interesting to see what happens and I hope these plays do go.

Bad news Stephane Sessegnon is attracting a lot of interest from Premiership clubs and French Clubs.

Reporter said it looks like he is a goner.(15)(14) 

Aw well Sunderland will still spend big money on average players. While we do it right, by getting top players for next to nothing apart from the odd 1No way will Sunderland write off the 9M they paid fro Craig Gordon. Also he will only ever play for one Scottish club, Hearts and whilst injured he's been back to the club a lot as he's also a fan.Impressively inaccurate.Gordons contract runs out at the end of the season. Sunderland want his wage packet off. He is one of the highest paid goalkeepers in the world of football.Bramble no thanksGordon one of the highest paid players in world football, Haha, I seriously doubt thatgoalkeepers


23 Feb 2012 16:53:07
Andy Hessenthaler being lined up as Wolves next manager.(11)(37)Why would we appoint a failed LEAGUE TWO manager.Why would you sack a man that took you up and kept you there? Good sense and prudence left Molinuex a long time ago.


23 Feb 2012 15:48:22
Rumour stating that Rupert Lowe is
interested in taking over at poor old
Portsmouth,hope it's true because oh
how you deserve each other.(12)(13)And there was me thinking this rubbish rumour had already been reported on this site. Glad to see you have your finger on the pulse! well done you!Don,t think even Rupert Bear would be interested in Pompey could try hr and mmMy god a match made from heavenThink this ones got more of a pulse than Pompey have at the moment.


23 Feb 2012 15:06:21
Lee Clark for the Molineux vacancy?(10)(28)Wolves will have to lower their expectations. Lee Clark wont want to go there as fourth choice. Walter Smith, Alan Curbishley & Brian McDermot have all turned them down.So let me get this right, a man who has been sacked after not getting his club promoted out of league 1, would turn down the opportunity to manage a larger club in the prem. He would take it in a heart beat if he was 100th choice.Wolves are a laughing stock right now, they will have to take what they can. No credible manager will touch them. They will have to look within and promote, or get an ex-pro in. I head Andy Gray might be interested. {Ed001's Note - Gray's only interest is money, Wolves won't pay him enough.}I think the fact that Huddersfield fans were largely delighted at his leaving the club says everything... He would be perfect for WoLOLves.Neil Warnock also spoke to Wolves but opted for Leeds. Warnock also spoke to Hudds.Lee clark ? God they really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now



23 Feb 2012 15:05:08
Rupert Lowe interested in taking over Portsmouth?(14)(15)...the Portsmouth board may be stupid, but they ain't that stupid!! lolThey are THAT stupid. They'd probably sell to Rupert Bear.


23 Feb 2012 14:18:04
HOT NEWS. Time to get your wallets out fellas. I have heard from a very reliable source that the next Wolves manager on a short term deal will be DAVE JONES. Dont just sit there! GET A TENNER ON IT NOW! This is fact. I just placed £500 at 15/1. GET IN!(20)(33)Don't be silly. In a market like that you will not be able to punt more than a score especially at those odds.
However your choice would be seem to be feasible.Wish u'd of had that bet with me pal, i'd of give you 16's! then put your 500 on at 20's which is on offer generallyMissed taking them pills again500 not well spent... Terry Connor has just been named Wolves manager until the end of the SeasonGet the drinks in,your round mate!!HaHa ... Unlucky!I really hope this is a lie, because former LUFC player, and Mick's assistant, Terry Connor has been given the job until the end of the season!Unlucky


23 Feb 2012 13:19:16
erik huseklepp signed to birmingham on loan of 3 months
in order to sign permanent(21)(5)Ino this is mad


23 Feb 2012 12:55:24
I can confirm from a reliable source at Reading that that Pompey have approached the club to loan midfielder Jay Tabb and striker Mathieu Manset.

Portsmouth were told in no uncertain terms to look elsewhere by Sir John Madejski. Manset has instead gone to China on loan for £600,000, and Tabb remains in Brian McDermott's plans. Other clubs are believed to be taking the same stance against Portsmouth.(13)(12)Manset has either got on loan or has been sold for 600,000. NOT BOTH!Any club doing deals with Portsmouth right now, would be crazy.Portsmouth told by FA that they can only bring in new players if they go down to 14 fit players!The loan fee is 600,000. Same wealthy club that took Anelka and wanted Drogba. Very odd move but Reading are obviously rubbing their hands together over this and want the player off the books due to his weight problems and off field problems (drink driving, unprofessional attitude)Clubs in administration cant get
anyone on loan or are pompey getting
special treatmentWhy would anyone in there right mind want to join them when they wont get paid any wages"Manset has either got on loan or has been sold for 600,000. NOT BOTH!"

ITS A LOAN FEE, superb bit of business by hammond yet again.


23 Feb 2012 12:53:10
Any bristol city rumours(3)(13)No not that i know of, but anyway im coming down to your place this weekend. Atmosphere should be great, looking forward to it. Blackpool FanFrom a bristol city season ticket holder- theres more atmosphere in a desert mateI was thinking you will be loud tomorrow cause ive seen on your website about your manager saying ''lets have the noisiest performance of the season'' and everyone trying to get the atmosphere up and heavy, were expected to bring about a 1,000 of us or just over that mark i reckon. Well anyway im looking forward to the game anyway.Dont misjudge bristol city mate because look at passed results we loose,then we bounce back look at southampton look at bristol rover we lost at home 0.2 then beat them on there own turf 2.4 judge city next season


23 Feb 2012 12:16:28
very big rumour that Hessenthaler will be leave Gillingham fc before the end of this season(17)(2)Might be offered the Wolves job!


23 Feb 2012 11:54:44
Trotta to Watford on month's loan from Fulham - done deal(13)(3)Don't think so he's off to Millwall mate.Signed for Watford today buddy. Better luck next time.Signing for Millwall, just wait and's been confirmed and he is training with watford right now, jol has even said it could be for more than a month.Millwall......wrong again..............


23 Feb 2012 11:26:04
Walter Smith has been offered the Wolves job til the end of the season. He knows Moxey from his time working at Rangers. Source Express & Star newspaper(10)(10)I call shambLOLes.Said no thank god for thatHas knocked them backWalter Smith will fail. He failed at Everton.

In Scotland they talk about guys like him being "legends" for winning 3 or 4 titles in a row.

Any half decent manager that came to either Rangers or Celtic and got money to spend will come first or second and qualify for Europe. They go into Europe and usually fall at the first hurdle.

The true "legends" prove themselves in the EPL or Europe and only one springs to mind SAF.You would be lucky to get smith,i am a evertonian and he did a good job for us,considering he had vto sell all his best assets,get real small time club with no ambition,you should have stuck with mick.I agree with the Evertonian Thick Mick would have scrapped you through. Instead it’ll be straight through the Championship and into league this space.


23 Feb 2012 11:17:18
Trotta is a done deal, 1 month loan..lets hope he's not a Del Boy!(10)(2)Come on Millwall! Great signing.Slow down mate Rodders is coming as well
LOVELY JUBBLYMillwall? He's gone to Watford you doughnutHe's signed for Millwall...You really need to check sky sports mateYou believe Sky Sports? Trust me he might be a Watford player now but this time next week he'll be a Millwall player.You got it wrong. he has joined Watford you dounut


23 Feb 2012 09:44:00
latest Steve Evans leaving club has been aggreed would be best for the club if he steps down.What's gone on???
We know he is all wind and p/sss but credit he has steered the club to a good spot in the division.
Makes you think Leee Clark sacked at Huddersfield now this rumour about Steve Evans.Wonder where this came from(10)(6)Evans is not good for any football club, he is a PR1CK of the highest order, it would be the best thing that could happen to little Creepy CrawleyAgree with the baove comment why would Lee Clark go to a tin pot club like crawley with poor crowds -naff stadium and i believe some dodgy owners. Crawley will always be a club that has to sell the players as they dont get the crowds. I think Crawley are going to start slipping down the league now and what decent team would want that scum bag manager evans in charge. The guy is totally unprofessional and is the most hated manager in L1 & L2Evans is hated in football full stop. Leaves a bad taste. Crawley as a team play some good stuff but will always be a small club. Get a new manager before its to late....If the big mouth Evans is leaving creepy Crawley then thats the best thing he's done for football. Even Crawley's FA cup runs are over shadow by Evans big mouth


23 Feb 2012 09:27:45
Wolves to appoint ex rangers boss Walter smith by tomorrow(5)(20)Oh no they aintNope - he turned it down.

GEGIn ya dreams pal


23 Feb 2012 01:55:41
Wolves set to contact Molde FK over the availability of their current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær, over the vacancy at Molineux.
The hierarchy at Wolves has become growing impatient over the suitability and enthusiasm for those who have been in contact.
With experience coaching Man Utd reserves and leading Molde FK to win the Norwegian Premier League in his first year as their manager, their is a growing sentiment that OLS could bring a rejuvenation to the Wolves squad and bring about safety.
With it being preseason in norway compensation and transfer would be easier than that of a current football league manager.(8)(20)If Alan Curbishley turned you down - really?
any sources?
"They lack ambition" face it championship team & MM was the best manager you will ever have.Oh no not another name in the circus ring - I mean come on the names doing the rounds are what - genuine, smokescreens, red herrings - but I admit my beloved Wolves have brought a whole new meaning in how to select & conjole a manager into this once very great club! Ok who is the owner here. Morgan you wanted Curbishley well bloody well go out & get him - & both share the same vision - a successful Wolves team in the Premier LeagueSorry did you just say that wolves were a "great club"? i thought my eyes were failing meWolves will reap exactly what they have sown; McCarthy took them up and kept them up all those on here screaming for his removal will maybe reflect on their actions now – well maybe in May.

I wonder if this sleeping giant will drop into league 1 in the next few years, the premier league setup will certainly have to go and the wage bill reduced. All those stars sold off on the cheap to keep the club going etc etc….. We’ve seen it all before, I said on this very site be careful what you wish for Wolves fans


23 Feb 2012 00:28:39
I may be about to fan the flames here but this is something that is deeply unjust - Ravel Morrison tweet homophobic slurs, but gets a £7k fine, not 8 games and £60k - what, have the FA read the equalities act 2010, there are 9 protected characteristics. Each no more or less valid than another, that's probably why it gets called the 'Equalities Act' why can the Football Association NOT use an even rule book? Is it any wonder there are no openley gay pro players, poor poor form - shame on the FA, OK to support so many disability charities tho... Keep up the sheet work FA hypocrites. {Ed003's Note - Great post}(31)(9)Yes your right both cases r just as bad !! I agree whit you fully , but the fa stand on this is that the Twitter comments are off field comments in this case they r not able to issue a bad as it was not during a game they can only ask the club to personally bad or fine this player a joke I know but a fa ruleCouldn't agree more. I was incensed to hear that Morrison was only fined 7k, should have been 70 k plus a at least a five game ban. The FA are spineless and have no knowledge of the real world.Morrison get's paid 1k pw and has never played a first team game.

Suarez get 160k pw and is on TV every week.

7 Weeks wages for Ravel, 3 days wages for Luis. {Ed001's Note - why has Ravel never played a first team game? Because he can't keep out of trouble with the law! So it is only his own fault that he is not getting paid ridiculous wages, though you are an idiot if you think Suarez gets anywhere near that much at Liverpool. Gerrard is the highest paid player in the club, he gets less than that, Suarez is on about half of that ludicrous made up nonsense of a figure you have posted.
Anyway, you have completely missed the point, people are complaining because he never got banned, not because of the fine!}Great post, just shows the usual double standards from the FAThe post makes a valid point, but it has always been the same, Ferdinand received a 9 month ban for missing a drugs test and the young lad from City got a 2.5k fine! There is no consistency and thats what drives you mad!

Bazza {Ed001's Note - many other bans are not even made public and listed as injuries when they are for failed drugs tests as well. The FA is corrupt and unreliable.}Well said!Great post and i'm supprised this hasn't been jumped on by Gay Rights campaingers and the media. The FA really are useless.Thanks Ed001 - appreciate your comments I wasn't aware that there were many other bans 'disguised' within spells on the treatment bench, but I shouldn't be suprised at all. Thanks for the comments on my original post last night, chose not to put this on the LFC page as I wanted an open view from a wide base of fans, pity that the FA won't take any notice, take care all,

Suffolkn'Red {Ed001's Note - it is common practice to rule the player out for an injury if they go into rehab. It is a disgrace. I understand that they are in need of help etc but the only reason it is done is to keep it quiet. Perhaps if it was public, others that need help would realise that help was available and others that were thinking about using drugs etc would realise that they might actually get caught after all.}


22 Feb 2012 23:12:29
Portsmouth have been told that they will not be able to bring any more players in unless a current player is released.(23)(4)Get Pearce off down to Ipswich a bit quick, he'll be well looked afterUnless all your keepers are injured then you should not be thinking of bringing any more players in. You have been punching above your weight for to long now. On 14000 crowds how can you pay players in excess of 20000 per week. Leeds dont pay the wages that you do and their crowds are double yours!Good!! It's a disgrace that just after entering Administration last time, they went and broke the bank to bring in experienced Premier League players on wages they knew they couldn't afford.

It's an absolute disgrace.

I feel for the fans, yes, but the club disgusts me.

Two break the terms of the CVA, and to be back in Admin twice in as many years really should be enough to wind the club up! Sad as it might be to do it, but a new club could be born and in several years you'd be back in the FL and could look for investment and finally a new 25000 all seater stadium.Bye bye Pompey.This is old news. Pompey were told this before the January transfer window opened. We've just offloaded Huseklepp to Brum & brought in Scott Allen from WBA. Next to go, rumoured, is Ben Haim to Celtic. PUP.People dont understand!!....we did have the money with our owners but they turned out to be crooks and that is the fl faultI suppose its the f a fault you are paying 30 000 or more a week to poor players deserve what you get hope nobody buys yer bye bye good ridThe one thing that I couldn't understand when Voldemort was banging on the other day about only being able to field nine fit players was "ok, what about the reserves/kids?"

Then some enlightened soul informed me that if a player from reserve set up plays in a few games they are regarded as part of the squad.

Well that should be a problem should it? Theses guys would be on next to no money, so what is the problem?

The only reason for not playing them is that this would enlarge the squad, which would then mean that the league would be less prepared to allow Pompey to bring in MORE players on loan!

What on earth are they thinking. I hate to see any club in this situation - even Portsmouth - but I'm sorry; if this is the attitude of the club, then they deserve what they get. Ben-Haim is reportedly on 36,000 a week!

I hate to say it but the money men involved deserve to loose every penny-have the club liquidated, and let it be re-born as an unblemished club, run by people who would have the best interests at heart. Lets face it, Pompey have no assets, so they wouldn't be loosing much. It's about time one of these fat-Cat clubs that spend millions chasing the dream only to loose it all, goes out of business - if only as a warning to the others. Its only a matter of time.


22 Feb 2012 23:11:15
Nigel pearson is set to become the new wolves manager and leicester will replace him with oldham athletic manager paul dickov! Fact ..oldham will then appoint lee clark as their new manager(6)(64)Or we could get lee clark and you can keep dickov :)...or better yet we could get a proper manager


22 Feb 2012 20:40:18
Wolves apparently want Nigel Pearson(7)(40)Wolves, Wycombe or Wimbledon. If the pay is better pearson will be off like a shot!The man is a journeyman who relies on his backroom staff. No loyalty to any club, Wolves are welcome to himHmmm cant see that happeningIf Pearson goes to Wolves, Leicester could do worse by bringing in Mick McCarthy as his replacement. At least he shows some loyalty. Judas will go anywhere if the money is rightU lot aint got a clue..Pearson never wanted 2 leave Leicester in the 1st place...the old board got rid of him..god knows why...u can hardly call him judas 4 returning to a club that he didnt want to leaveWishful thinking pal,they've also wanted countless other mangers all of who have said noPearson is a judas! no loyalty to any club. Relies on his backroom staff then likes to take all the credit. Odious man with no class whatsoever who will move on as soon as the going gets tough or the fans start to voice their opinionI want Liz Hurley - but thats a dream as well !Liz Hurley is a ruubbish football manager, nice tits though!


22 Feb 2012 19:50:16

Manager Summer Moves

Villas-Boas - Sacked
Mourinho Real Madrid - Chelsea
Wenger - Arsenal - Real Madrid
Guardiola - Barcalona - Arsenal
Redknapp - Tottenham - England
Poyet - Brighton - Tottenham

David Moyes will be Sir Alex Fergusons
sucessor with Alan Curbishly going to
everton(16)(45)Good except the Moyes bit

Who will be the manager of Barca?I want some of what your on! wenger to real thats made me laugh

had to be written by a goonerMourinho wont go back to Chelsea
Wenger wouldnt get Real Madrid job
Guardiola to Arsenal, Why?
Redknapp well that is fair
Poyet not good enough
Moyes I think Man utd would want a Mourinho Guardiola or someone like that
Curbishly Everton can get better than thatMoyes would do a good job at MUFC and everyone knows it.
Wenger has been a great manager but time to put his feet up.
REdknapp has only had 2 good years in management with spurs and a FA cup with a club he helped kill.
Guardipola to Ars - not gonna happen.
Everton would not need curbishley - EVERAVB out Mourinho loves Chelsea still and always talks about them in press confrences. Could come back if he sorts out realtionship with Abramovich. Guardiola has complemented the way in which arsenal play, and is the closet team to Barcelonas passing ability. I can see this happening!I say youll be lucky to get one of those right

Watch Man City and we'll show you how its done.


21 Feb 2012 16:40:53
Wolves no nearer to finding new manager. This was because Curbishley was number 1 choice and they were certain he would take the job. Next choice was Bruce but that has cooled now due to fans reaction. I'm told only person showing real interst in job is Paul Ince.(28)(15)Its not, wolves want the reading manager mcdermot.Paul Sturrock to be appointed new manager at WolvesIt has been on local radio (radio wm) curbishley was offered a 2.5 year contract but turned it down he only wanted a 13 game contract incase we got relegated.It will be another 4 years out of work alan with an attitude like that mate i don't think you realise how big our club and fanbase is!Curbishley didnt take the job because he watched a DVD of there last match and got out of there sharpishNot very big just a caravan site in Wolverhampton , Where ya caravan YAM YAMCurbishley will give a answer tomorrow after further talksYou may think you are a big club but you are not, no decent manager will touch you with a barge pole until you have spent 5 - 6 seasons in the top flight and that aint gonna happen, championship calling big clubLets be honest, we were a big club, and we have the money to be one again, but they won't spend it and that is why we are going nowhere...Why not Lee Clark? All those pundits on radio and TV asking why was such a wonderful up and coming young Manager sacked! Not heard him linked to anything since?

Ba may go for as little as 3.5m in the summer.
No chance of keeping him if it is true.
Haway the lads.

Jeez.(23)(13)Just need to give Ba a new contract and big pay hike to get rid of the clauseBig thing is ba dont wanna go anywere,he luvs it at the toon,his mates there and he knows we took a punt on him when others werent willing to,which he wont forget.Ok saying give him a pay rise goes right against newcastle set up worst thing is his agent reportedly getting 2 mill of the deal def on his way outVilla thought that about Downing we signed him for 12m when he had a broken leg then he fs off to scouse land 2 years laterDowning went for 20 mill thank f.c.u.k for that... hes so overrated for somebody that past it 3 years ago...This rumour has come about as a result of the recent David Sullivan interview in which he said "I'm told he's got a 7m get-out at Newcastle and he gets half the money, so if they sell him for 7m, they'll only net about three" (The Guardian, 20/02/2012). If this is true (and you can make your own decisions about the reliability of Mr Sullivan and his sources) there could be a significant financial incentive for Ba to actually push for a move.Load of rubbish must be a disgruntled premier league fan who spouted this carp because his club did not sign himLoad of rubbish where have you been for the last 48 hours sullivan said it and in all the papers his on his wayYea right because ashley is stupid and doesnt care about money


21 Feb 2012 16:14:54
Daily Express and Daily Star saying that Newcastle may lose Ba for as little as 3.5m in the summer.(17)(7)It is crap, lazy jurno stuff. West Ham boss apparently stiring for some reason. If he wanted to go, he would have gone in January...Has a 7 million get out clause but would have pushed for a transfer in jan if he wanted...@Where would he have gone as hes already been at two clubs since the beginging of the season... uefa wont allow itI stopped reading your rumour as soon as you said Daily Star

Unhappy Paul Sturrock to have showdown talks with his Chairman at Southend quite soon.(9)(8)Unhappy about what?No close ally following My Brady's exit. Doesn't see eye to eye with his Chairman.


21 Feb 2012 15:44:59
Unhappy Paul Sturrock to have showdown talks with his Chairman quite soon. Sturrock is not happy his 5-year plan for the Club is being thrown off course since the departure of the Club's CEO. it seems the Chairman is not keen to committ to this long term strategy and this has irked Sturrock.(7)(6)What is it with you and Sturrock, does your wife have a thing for him or something !What a pile of crap,

Must be jealous of southend being top.Dont believe this. Sturrock employeda five year plan at Argyle and we sailed from league 2 to the championship! Cant see Southend risking similar results, especially where they are currently. Bryher Pilgrim

Reading have been approached to realease Brian McDermott. Molineux bound. The big name and personality all Wolves fans wanted???????(5)(31)He is stayingThank god for thatBig name personality ! More like personality of a gnat !!Not a big name... but IMO a bloody good manager. You could do a lot worse.Please stay brianToo good for Wolves,also has the full backing of his board and club to push on for promotion to the Premiership,he,ll end up back in the championship next season if he took the Wolves job.Typical reading fan that when you lose out again after he takes the wolves job due to him being on a rolling contract so say bye bye very soonReading are a small club always have been no fansWe are the best fans in the leagueUh wolves fans who is laughing now then, oh the little club who kept their manager, weep weep wolves, nobody wants to manage your ickle club, probably because the fans speak alien...

Chelsea- Fabio Capello
England- Harry Redknapp
Tottenham- Gus Poyet
Brighton- Lee Clark(11)(49)Hasn't Capello retired?Get your facts right, Grayson is already 'in situ'. Confirmed last night by SSN.Wolves are after brian mcdermottAs a arsenal fan i hope not Jose Mourinho is not right for our club we need a manager that can deliver in youth and buying...@Poyet?

21 Feb 2012 10:49:03
Watford rumour......Tomasz Kuszczak from ManUtd will be going to Watford on a 3 month loan deal.(22)(8)Done deal, just announcedGreat signing and another loan signing of real quality. In the recent past Cleverly & Foster have come from United and really made a mark. Watford's relationship with United seems to be as strong as ever. Long may that continue.


21 Feb 2012 10:40:02
Jimmy Bullard to Reading on loan.

Source TWTD.(12)(25)


21 Feb 2012 10:39:11
Swindon Town's Alan Connell and Matt Ritchie linked with a combined £2million move to Championship side Leicester. Heard this from a reliable source working within Leicester.(3)(23)The same Alan Connell who has failed and been bombed out of every club he has been at?? Think he's found his level pal, Ritchie isn't for long at Swindon though but won't be anywhere near 2mil


21 Feb 2012 10:31:12
Pauli di canio is going to be offered the wolves job this week on a 2 1/2 year deal with a big bonus for keeping them in the prem. terry skiverton being lined up as a replacement.(8)(30)What a load of bsI'm a Swindon fan - I know our lot wouldn't be happy about that but I can't see that Wolves would be happy at all with that move! Anyway, it's bound to be McDermott or BruceSurely to be offered the managers job at Wolves, they have to speak to him and interview him, and before that they have to get permission from Swindon, none of which have happened !Wolves are not gonna gamble on a sideshow clown like Di Canio! Get real


21 Feb 2012 10:16:55

David Bird to sign for Hereford United in time for the weekend fixtures(7)(2)


21 Feb 2012 10:03:18
If Old 'Arry Leaves Expect David Moyes Or Alan Pardew To Take Over. Considering Niether Spend Loads Of Money On Quality, Expect Tottenham To Do Extremely Well.(9)(17)I'd heard they were interested in Brendan Rogers


21 Feb 2012 09:40:54
Chris Martin, Aaron Wilbraham and Korey Smith are set to leave Norwich City in the summer while Paul Lambert brings in players from Germany to maintain Premier League survival for another season.(15)(6)I don't think Lambert will be willing to sell Korey Smith, bags of potential, just 21, on loan at Barnsley to get him games after Injury.
Suspect Lambert will re-view him in pre-season before deciding if he will sell him on.
I suspect you can add Lappin and Crofts as two other players he will consider selling in the summer, and will release Drury as well.


21 Feb 2012 08:13:25
Shaun Derry to be reunited with both Warnock and Leeds United and is expected to captain the side from inital signing.(22)(8)


21 Feb 2012 08:06:25
Leeds to sign former Sheffield United and Portsmouth striker Danny Webber on a free transfer as player is a free agent since leaving Portsmouth in Summer.

Webber will become Neil Warnock's first signing as Leeds Manager as they are reunited before the Portsmouth game this weekend. Webber played under Warnock during his time at Sheffield United.(12)(5)Scraping the barrel springs to mind.Yeah, it will be twice if you include WarnockConsidering he's still on trial at Birmingham I highly doubt this

Reading are signing Lakaku from Chelsea on loan for the rest of the season(9)(33)Name spelt wrong so thats rubbishHe has already played for Anderlecht and Chelsea and is unable to play for another club this season, so unless he is dropping down a division to train with players of a much lower quality I think you will find you are wrong
