Now that Henry is gone from Arsenal, look for Arsene to sign Owen from Newcstale for 9 million on Monday, also expect Babel to sign on the smae day. for 6 million. Thats 15 million. 1 million left will go to the budget from the selling of Reyes and Aliadiere. that's 12 million. looks for Arsene to try and get either Sergio Ramos or Micha Richards. this will be a 10 million signing, leaving 2 million to maybe sign a youngster. And this is before we get money from the board.

Look for the money from the board to be spent on Veloso and Mouthino. 15 million should get both of them away from Sporting.

Arsenal out.

Henry – Barca 16 million

Reyes – Atletico or Seville 9 million

Aliiadier – Middelsborough 2 million

Poom – 1 million

Arsenal in.

Owen – Newcastle 9 million

Babel – Ajax 6 million

Nordvart – 2 million

Veloso and Mouthino – Sporting 15 million

Micha Richards or Sergio Ramos – 10 million.

Arsenal in – 29 Million

Arsenal out – 35 million.

Board spend 6 million.

Arsene Wenger will be Arsenal Manager, Gilberto Silva to be Captain and Fabreags vice Captain.


 Henry confirmed to Barca – Arsene next I told you. Don't panic though Ronald Koeman will be the start of new era. Don't fear the change.


 Sven Goran Errikson will try to ensure that Micah Richards stays at Man City and then enquire about Shaun Wright–Phillips on loan or for a possible £10 million and Michael Owen for around £10 million as well. Errikson will also enquire about fellow Swedes Christian Wilhelmsson, Aston Villa defender Olef Mellberg, Johan Elmander and even Freddie Ljunberg from Arsenal who he hopes will join for around £5 million. Of course he won't sign all Swedish but expect 2 countrymen to be signed as well as mainly English players.

All Done deals just waiting for players to back from Holidays


 Billy Davies wants to add Boltons Ricardo Vaz Te to his Derby attacking line up to support Steve Howard with more pace. Reported to be a 2 Mil deal.


 Spurs news

I have it on good authority that Mssrs Ghaly and Mido will both be leaving. Mido to Celtic and Ghaly to Sunderland.

I also have information that suggest Sean Wright–Phillips is also heading to White Hart Lane as is Darren Bent, which will be completed very shortly (Common knowledge really, just confirming that one)

The real peach is that we in in negotiation with Barca although my source gave no names, he said it will be a stAggering coup if it comes off. I'll let you know when I find out.


 Defoe could be the suprise choice for Arsenal to fill the gap left by Henry, Owen is first choice but it is thought he is not willing to leave the north of England.

Eider Gudjohnson is another possibility, he will end up in London at either Arsenal or West Ham



Henry's transfer might be a shock to some but not to others. It was a shock to me. I have been advocating for weeks that Henry will stay. I have since learned that the REAL reason Wenger has allowed Henry to go is because of the same reason he allowed Petit, Overmars and Vieira go. Its because Henry is past his prime. I would never of believed it but its true. Henrys niggling little injurys for the past 2–3 seasons aren't as niggling as we thought. It seems that he has a deep lying problem that keeps coming back. He gets back to supposed fitness and passes medical tests and then gets hurt again. Its because the injury has not truly gone. AW has agreed to sell him to Barca because he will pass the medical sign for them, get £120k off our wage bill and they will have to suffer the injuries whilst Arsenal sit back and get stronger without Henry and £16 million Richer. Word Currently has it that the £16 million fee is plus GudJohnsen. Eidur is worth approx £8 million and has that little creative spark and passing genius that is so reminiscient of BERGKAMP. If not I think Henry will bump up to £24 million, AW may also have orchestrated a little deal for Borjan Krkic. Life after Henry is going to be good. AW has been clever in not commiting to the club because he wanted to tryly know if Henry's heart was at AFC and incidentally it isn't. Wenger will sign a new deal by Xmas.

Wenger has now revealed his true TARGETS for AFC. He will sign one of RICHARDS (8 million) / Davies (8 million) / Sagna (6 million) for Versatility and is considering buying Shorey for (5 million).

In Midfield AW is Targetting a Winger and the list is made up of Downing (7 million) / Babel (6 million) / Bringing Reyes back.

STRIKER OPTIONS: One maybe MAXIMUM of two from list will come depends on GudJohnsen: Torres (9 million+ Reyes+ Merida&Vela loan) / Owen (9 million) / Huntelaar (14 million) / Bent (Loan from CAFC with some AFC youth/ Reserves to CAFC on loan)

Maximum Possible spent. £34 million, don't expect that much spent though. I think Davies, Babel and Owen will be the ones and that will be bought for £23 million


Henry (16 million Barca), Muamba (4 million B'Ham), Flamini (free), Aliadiere (1.5 million M'boro), Baptista (Back to Madrid).

£21.5 million/ 29.5 million IN.



 Sheffield United are set to sign Simon Whaley from Preston for a fee of 2 million, and Thomas Gravesen on a season long loan. I have it on good authority that these deals will go ahead after the verdict of the arbitration hearing. nh


 Rangers are lining up a bid for Bordeaux winger julien faubert or something like that for 4.3 million.


 Mike Ashley is ready to strike with his newly acquired Black and White sword, I know very dramatic, and clear out the deadwood that is the Newcastle board, mostly made up of Chairman's daughters, sons and best mates, in order to start his revolution. He is said to be livid with the contract situation of two of the clubs highest profile players and though it was once thought that Shepherd would stay on as an 'pretend' chairman, many say a role he is used to, he will now be dismissed because of the afore mentioned buyout Clauses. If Newcastle are to lose either or both players in question Ashley will hit the fans with a stunning signing. Tevez, I know, wake up. But he is willing to spend the monies needed to take Newcastle United out from under their cloud. But don't expect this to happen every week like it did at Chelsea because Allardyce doesn't work that way. Tevez is to be the cherry on the top of the new and improved squad. and be afraid. Also look out for the hijacking of the Bent deal, they may not be successful but Newcastle will make Spurs work for the signing by offering 18 million for him.

The revolution starts now. Well when he sacks the board.


 My dad used to work for the foxes trust and still keeps in touch, he has just got off the phone to 'a mate' who says that Billy Sharp is coming to Leicester for £2. 75 million and that Leicester will sign a young lad from Chelsea on loan, by the name of ben Sahar. guys.



 Villa's Luke Moore is set to join Norwich City on a season long loan.

Moore is anxious for first team action withhimbeing down the pecking order at Villa Park



Floribert Ngalula, formerly of Manchester United is set to sign for the foxes on a free transfer. The defensive midfielder is set for a medical at the end of the week and will be Martin Allan's 7th signing of the season.


 Sorry about posting the Raul rumour I got a bit Carried away. Would be good for £3 million though



 I work with Ruel Fox's brother and I can guarantee that Rangers have renewed their interest in Alan Smith and Robbie Fowler. Deals will be completed before pre–season begins.

I also understand Hearts will move for Gretna striker James Grady. Aberdeen will look to veteran Paul Gerrard to solve their goalkeeping crisis. Langfield to Cardiff is certain, MARK MY WORDS.


 Derby have enquired about West Ham's unwanted striker Carlton Cole and want to sign him on a loan with a view of a permanent deal. Earnshaw is a possibility and Norwich want £3 million. Billy Davies wants to sign Riggott back and Malcom Christie's agent has spoken to Derby about a return.
