Jon stead to Leeds with Pearce, Kenny, ward, Steven davies, Robinson, and charlie austin with McCormack out to brighton(8)(43)You leds fan automatically think anyone will join you the truth is steady wont move to leeds because he is happy in the city and has already stated he wants to settle. he wouldnt suit warnocks style of play anyway.Dream on with bates in charge of the money give over championship mid table team.Charlie Austin's not going anywhere.If he's rejected Leeds wage offer then really don't think we can afford McCormack as much as would love to take himThe only Ward you will sign is Danny Ward from Huddersfield if your lucky,ATM Brighton have a lot more transfer money available than Leeds...mccormack's wage demands will be less than vicente's for sure

Walsall are rumoured to be signing a big named player to Mark their 125th anniversary

Striker Angelos Charisteas (who famously scored the Euro 2004 final goal for Greece) Is rumoured to be in talks with the league one side, the former Schalke player and Stoke City and Ipswich target is currently a free agent following his release from Panetolikos F.C.

Source Express and star / Birmingham mail Journalist(3)(26)Someone's been watching BBC threes euro shockersHe wouldnt even go to a championship team...I doesnt say on express a starIt's better story than the usual rubbish in here,The Express & Star has been lying for years. They said we'd signed George Boateng. Lies, lies and more lies.


23 May 2012 23:17:37
David Goodwillie to middlesborough for their promotion push next year(13)(28)


23 May 2012 23:13:27
Emmanuel Ledesma is to sign a 2 year contract with Peterborough United after leaving Walsall.(15)(9) 

No chance hes going boro!Would like this guy but would be a risk as has only been a decent performer not outstanding.... Young and has some ability but will probably join middlesboro, if he doesn't then maybe......


23 May 2012 23:11:42
Tom Heaton to sign for Peterborough United(19)(8)


23 May 2012 23:10:55
George Boyd to join his former boss at Stevenage Graham Westley who is now at Preston. The deal is thought be £500k plus Paul Coutts going back to Peterborough.(7)(30)Not a chanceCoutts is going back to Peterborough for a lot less than 500k...why would Boyd want to go to Preston who were looking at relegation from League 1 last season....just not going to happenNo way why would he go down when he wants to play for a higher championship team or a prem team and 500,000 and Coutts rip off! UTPCoutts is pretty much a done deal to charlton.Why would boyd go to a league one club when hes been linked with leeds:s


23 May 2012 21:28:32
Ed any news on Middlesbrough ? Like any at all from through the week or anything ? {Ed003's Note - My counter part who lives in a small hamlet surrounded by heather informs me Loovens is on your radar}(8)(1) 

Your meant to be signing Emmy Ledesma from walsall - who's contract is up this summer ... cracking little player!I'm a celtic fan on teesside so get to boro games occassionally as well. loovens would be a very poor signing, he's physically built to be a good player but his defending is shocking. if you thought mcmanus was bad - he was keeping loovens out of the team along with the other chuckle brother gary caldwell. careful what you wish for!


23 May 2012 22:07:52
Chesterfield have completed a move for sought after Port Vale striker Marc Richards on a 2 year deal.(11)(5)Cant hack it at a league one club by the sounds of thingsNahhh. He got offered more money at ChesterfieldHe's a proven goalscorer in the 4th division so why not take Chesterfield back to the 3ed tier of English football and take it from thereChesterfield are scouting benjamin pinkney from matlock town, promising left back very quick.Shows that this player lacks ambition by not even going to a higher league. chesterfield are a poor team even with a striker, so silly move for Richards.Richards has gone to town cause he can score goals,hold the ball up,bring people into play etc .he is a quality player that any team in league 1 or 2 would have in a flash you numpty.He was talking to league 1 clubs so people who say he can't hack it in the high division haven't a clue what they're are talking aboutRichards will rip that league up. If he stays fit! He still loves the vale though


23 May 2012 21:58:48
Marc Richards has gone to Chesterfield on a 2 year deal.(20)(10)


23 May 2012 21:36:37
James Milner defo signing for Chelsea this summer(13)(46)How much for


23 May 2012 21:34:40
Burnley could complete a triple move over the weekend with the signings of Joel Ward(400,000,),Adam Clayton(650,000) and Marc Pugh(300,000)(15)(38)Hope it's true, but can't see it happening.


23 May 2012 21:49:53
Lillestorm striker Bjorn Sigurdarson has
said he favours a move to wolves
over any other club as Cardiff Ipswich
and Reading are not the clubs he
wants to play for(21)(19)He's staying at Lillestrom or going to the premiership so I doubt he said that.Why, when there are various Premiership teams interested (a number of whom would view him as a 1st team signing), would Bjorn opt for Wolves OR Cardiff?

Won't happen.Hope this happens! never seen him playing but im sure if he moves to the premier league he wont be a first team regular whereas at wolves he will be!Why go to championship with wolves when reading, everton and other prem teams have been looking at him!Because he is not guaranteed regular first team football in the premier league.Our new manager Solbakken is best mates with his uncle! solbakken is Norweigan and so is Sigurdarson!Reading have just signed bjorn sigurdarson and adrian mariappaHopefully we sign junior hoilet and yakubu because he's best friends with robertsHe's had Reading, Everton, Villa and Bayern Munich scouting him. Why would he choose Wolves?Sigurdarson is from Iceland not NorwaySigurdarson is Icelandic, not Norwegian.If Bjorn and agent has any sense they will sign for Reading. Everton are static but I admit their a bigger club and Wolves have just been relegated. I'd pick the club that will have more to spend in the transfer market and are on the up. This one's going to be a scrap be interesting to see what happens.I'm a wolves fan n BS is from Iceland his half brother is joey gudjonsson (spelling) (ex wolves) n wolves henning Berg has said wolves would be his ideal club n even his agent has said that wolves should move quick cause we have got a chance of getting himHe's to old need young players to get in plReading will be back down after one seasonHe's 21! That's old now?Not going to the championship- not wolves or anyone else. Cardiff were interested but his agent has said he wants a Premiership club. Oh Wolves not in that league anymore.


23 May 2012 21:48:13
swansea looking at beckford from leicester(17)(28)Hope this is true, i am a LCFC fan and i can't stand the lazy waste of space, the type of player that causes problems with team spirit due to his negativity^ clearly hasnt watched his game closely or kniw anything about JB football wise or personallyHope it's true too, he is rubbish. Lazy and disrupts the team. See ya Jermaine!Don't think he is the right player for the Swans. Didn't do much last season with Leicester. Has seen better days. I'm sure there is better than him such as Jay Rodriguez of Burnley, Matt Phillips of Blackpool.I'm a Leicester fan and would hate to see Becks go! Brilliant footballer, natural goal scorer and great footballing brain. Anyone who says he is lady hasn't noticed his role is to play on the last defender and its Nugent who ldoes down. Thats their roles.Beckford! Rubbish? You alright in the head guys? Swans fan


23 May 2012 21:45:31
arsenal for nilmar(11)(35)


23 May 2012 21:43:23
Hoffenheim have accepted a 9mill euro bid from Swansea.(6)(38)Really hope German newspapers got it right this time, thought he would cost more than 7.2m, but as a swans supporter, I'm not complaining, more money for other signingHope this is right. Just agree personal terms and I'm sure he will be a Swan. I believe he has said he would love to return to the Swans. Just perfect for us last season


23 May 2012 21:39:53
Crawley are interested in loaning Millwall striker Josh McQuoid for the whole of next season.(7)(11)Hes rejoining AFCBScott Malone from bournemouth is looking more and more likely, with McQuiod going the other way


23 May 2012 21:38:16
I heard also that Torquay Utd were going to loan James Ward-Prowse and Ben Reeves from Southampton for 3 months next season.(4)(11)Dont think that will happenWard-Prowse has just been promoted to first team, they wouldnt have bothered with promoting him and triggering an increase in wages if they planned to loan him outJWP no chance. Be a good move for Reeves though. He looks decent and would get better with a few games under his belt.That makes sense as both need competitive experience, and to those who say playing in lower leagues isn't good enough, look at Oxlade Chamberlain, he's been selected for the euros, now we can keep our best youth prospects


23 May 2012 21:25:02
WHU to sign George McCartney by the end of the week on a permanent deal. Keiran Richardson might also re-sign for the Hammers.

190298(27)(10)...should help to keep them in the bottom three


23 May 2012 21:21:19
Man City's Reece Wabara And Luca Scapuzi will join Carlisle on loan until the end of next season(12)(6)I heard this to there two very good players


23 May 2012 21:02:01
Someone like Eidur Gudjohnsen should join the Saints,he's already done it in the premier league,up for free transfer now I think,decent,experienced player.(15)(20)Thats a good shout! Not a saints fan but he could do a decent jobThats 101 players now ^^ lolIs not up for a free. Signed a 2 year contract last year at AEK. Would most likely only leave with a fee, as AEK need the money.


23 May 2012 21:01:03
newly promoted mega rich Fleetwood town chairman Andy Pilley is going to make an audacious bid for Michael Owen and Emile Heskey after the sale of leading goalscorer Jamie Vardy for an undisclosed fee, believed to be around £1m.(9)(40)Rubbish, have you ever been to fleetwood, they are no bigger than Accy Stanley or Morecombe.

Go back to playing footy manager.

Also Owen has stated that he wont even play in championship so why would he go to a newly promoted second division club


23 May 2012 20:55:30
chris kirkland to sign 2 year deal for sheffield wednesday soursce swfc website(34)(5)


23 May 2012 20:36:21
Watford have shown intrest in Chris maguire. Derby have set an asking price of £400,000.
WATCH THIS SPACE.(13)(5)Ridiculous rumourI didn't post this but it isn't ridiculous! This is looking very likely especially since Chris has been transfer listed. I've heard that a bid will be or has already been made.Chris maguire did well at portsmouth so derby have set an asking price of 575-600k.They paid 450k for him why would they loose 50k on him even if they dont want him its not like hes declined its just that he prefers to play as a lone striker whereas clough wants 2 up frontFor that sort of money I'm sure SD could get someone better in at WatfordWe could do better than Derby rejects. Looks like another Joe Garner.Can't see this happening


23 May 2012 20:35:05
Tom Taiwo to Doncaster, he's rejected a new contract at Carlisle(12)(11)Are you crazy?? Ridiculous, He's not good enoughNot good anoth if he was worth a million at the age of 16 he is too good for youThat was then and now hes just average, hasnt lived up to his potential


23 May 2012 20:23:29
Just recived a phone call from my uncle today who works in the backroom staff at everton and he has heard that the Pienaar deal will be done in the next few weeks(19)(13)Going out on a limb there - I was speaking to a cousin of David Moyes and he told me that Pienaar would sign for Everton before the end of August!! FACT



23 May 2012 20:19:34
Palace looking to sign either Leigh Griffiths or David Goodwillie but may struggle as both their parent clubs may need them having been relegated from the premiership.

Having been scouting in Scotland Dougie Freedman is interested in signing midfielder Ivan Sproule and defender Paul Hanlon from Hibs, whilst they are also looking at three unnamed Rangers players.

Crawley looking to do deals for Jermaine Easter and Andy Dorman, whilst Middlesborough are interested in captain Paddy McCarthy who's contract has one year left.(8)(13)No way, goodwillie and Griffiths are awful, don't be sillyI think Wolves will manage without Griffiths.Goodwillie and Griffiths have poor disciplinary recored (inside and outside football) and Sproule is awful, just released from Hibs who are equally awful !!I guess someone is making this up based on a post on the Palace supporters website saying there has been a lack of scottish relate palace rumours. So busted.


23 May 2012 20:13:45
Peterborough United's Lee Tomlin has agreed terms with Stoke City. The deal will be worth £3m(11)(14)Been rubbished by Posh's Chairman.....Shame though, been a Peterborough fan out of all our players apart from Lewis he's the one I'd most like for us to sell. His performances this season have been poor. If some one offered me 3mil for him I'd snap there hand off lol.


23 May 2012 19:53:31
CARDIFF CITY are prepared to shatter their transfer record with an audacious £5.5m bid for Burnley hotshot Jay Rodriguez.

WalesOnline understands no official approach has been made by the Bluebirds, but the club has expressed a 'strong interest' in signing the 22-year-old striker, who fired 21 goals for the Clarets last season in the npower Championship.

Cardiff boss Malky Mackay rates Rodriguez the best striker outside the Premier League and has received the backing of the Bluebirds board to go out and land his man.(10)(44)Sure they would like Messi too-but neither are going to a Championship club!Way too good for cardiff, easily prem standardDream on boyo, u will lose your manager to wiganThe cardiff owners have already stated that costs will have to be cut, there is zero chance of them spending that sort of money.Jay is going to the Prem next season, not to a crappy little club like cardiffGo back to playong footy manager, what a load of rubbish

If you done your homework, we rejected a 5 million bid, also reports are saying we rejected a 5.5 mill bid aswell.

Also why would he want to go to a team that has failed everytime they have been in the playoffs, also he will only go to a Prem club aswellWhere have our owners said cost will be cut... You need to do some research.
Cardiff are hardly a crappy 'little' club, we're the biggest team to have never played in the premier league, and had more success in recent times than anyone else. Roriguez isnt prem standard and I wouldnt want us to spend that much for him. That settles that.Why would we lose our manager to Wigan when our manager has signed a contract to stay with us until 2014Rodriguez is prem standard and Burnley's asking price is 8m.This has got to b the funniest thing I have ever heard in my entire life , KEEP ON DREAMING CARDIFF . UTCAlso he isnt from watford so cardiff wouldnt want himCarrdiff city sign rodriguez i dont think so . more likely to sign fat overweight chopra from ipswich .Who are cardiff city no bottle and surely not 8 mill youve more chance getting promoted to the prem ,than buying jayHaha im a spurs fan and its funny how all the championship fans here think there clubs are big. fact burnley are a small club as much as i hate to say it cardiff are twice as big as burnley there fan base is huge for championship level jay rodriguez is overated.OOOO I see the Welsh haters are out in force today! Small minded idiots who only come on here to criticize, ridicule and insult. Grow up you muppets!Liverpool fan here , Cardiff have proven they are one of the biggest clubs in the UK , did you see their fans against us in the CC final . Respect where due!! Reds hoping for Cardiff to go up this coming season!! YNWAMost of the posters above must have been on the Bitter this afternoon!!! ha ha ha ha ha!!!I am a burnley fan and i think cardiff are a bigger club than ours . However i dont think jay would move to cardiff if a established prem club comes in . tottenham isnt that a suburb of chelsea and fulham . lmao jk . at least burnley is its own place . even if it aint to pretty lmaoWould love to know why a spurs fan has an interest on a burnley issue ?,but its a fact believe it or not? burnley fc are the best supported club in england ,when you consider per head of population in burnley .its a football factI dont think hes worth 5.5 million to be honest yet alone 8 million burnley fans need to get realSpurs fan has an issue because every forum i go on its all about jay rodriguez. why doesnt he just stay at burnley he doesnt need to go anywhere . if he goes burnley are doomed next seasonI am a Cardiff fan and this bid is nothing more than a publicity stunt. Owners trying to prove that they still back the club and the fans. it is easy to bid for players you know you cant get. He is highly rated and has six or seven Premiership clubs after him, so why would he want to come to Cardiff. Come on city fans wake up and smell the coffee.If Cardiff are double the side Burnley are then how come they're not in the premier league and also who was in the premier league more recently?? BurnleyIf your such a big club you would have stayed in the premiership one lucky season getting up it will never happen again swansea are bigger than burnley lmaoThat reminds me we also beat spurs 4-2Well we would have stayed in the prem if our manager didnt leave half way thru the season and get replaced by a person hu didnt have a clue wot he wer doing !!And at least we got to the premiership , something which Cardiff can't do , even when u had Bellamy u couldn't get there haha

23 May 2012 19:10:17
Mustapha carayol is in talks with bristol city ,believed to be worth around 800k to Bristol rovers,the player sees this move as a launching pad to him playing prem football(11)(18)No he's going to shrewsburyHa ha if bristol city pay that kind of money for him 800,000.(you dont even have that).Hes worth 100,000-150000.
Im a derby fan and aparently it was between us and boro and if we dont want him shrewsbury.But if this is actually true you can have him seen videos of him he is just fast.I will actually cry with laughter if you pay this feeI heard that City had offered 350k + add ons for Carayol. Revised offer for Keogh was in region of 400k after initial 200k offer was refused.I am slightly bemused by the Derby fans insistence that BCFC don't have any money. Look up Steve Lansdown and you will see that we are fine thank you. I assume this is the same poster who keeps posting that we are going into administration too? Epic fail.
Our club have always worked on the premise that we 'will buy a player if he is better than the ones we already have', no gusto or budgets just the same line for years. Does the Derby fan see us as a threat?To the person who believes Bristol City are skint google the name Stephen Lansdown (the clubs owner in all but name and only creditor as all loans are to him) All this talk about our finances are way off the mark.Nope we cant be a threat to Derby who will be middle to bottom of the championship next season as we will be top to middle.Lansdown isnt gunna want to buy all these players at such high prices when he has a rugby club to run aswell as a football club he said he is focased on trying to get bristol to the prem while city take a backseat for now he doesnt even run bristol city really any more he just has a small shareWhere tthe hell does all these people get the idea that our club (bristol city) has no money. our owner has been putting money into the club for years planing on building a new sttdium and also he is the 3rd richest man in the west countryTo the Derby fan. He's worth a lot more than 150,000. I wouldn't accept anything less than a million. Reading and Watford both had 2 players on him this season and both still got tore to shreds.


23 May 2012 19:43:05
dele adebola been at portman rd ipswichtoday to agree 3 year deal source twtd(6)(22)Im a ipswich fan nothin on twtdHighly unlikely as Jewell has highlighted the fact he wants 'pace'.......Super adebola cant wait to see him hes blue and whiteThe goal machine weve been missingLet this not be true, what a waste of wages, what is jewel thinking off 36 years of age , where s building 4 the future ,looks like another wasteful seasonSome Norwich muppet has nothing to do and keeps posting a tripe like that.Whats wrong with adebola i BET chopra is useless again next yearHe could be the man to keep us from relegationThat's their limit! Good ole Ip5w1ch.Chopra wasn't useless last season. He was still the 7th highest goalscorer in the championship with 14 goals.This is BoKs we are talking to Fuller of Stoke about a return to PR, not a 36 yr old OTT lump

23 May 2012 19:00:51
Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman is to register himself as a player for the 2012/13 season as he believes he could provide back up and is "better than Calvin and Jermain combined"

Former Palace employee was on a scouting mission for the club in Japan. Lennie Lawrence confirmed that TP was watching a Korean It is believed he was watching the Korean defender Yun Song Ju.(4)(14)Complete rubbish

Tony Popovic already admitted who he was scouting before leaving for West Sydney and that man was "Jesus" KennedyHilarious!

Burnley To Sign Swindon Double MidfielderStriker Raffelle De Vita And Midfielder Simon Ferry


Rubbish rumour


As much as i like Raffa, for his 100% efforts, i can not see him working it very well in league 1, let alone championship, he will be a sub/ressy next year!(4)(6)


23 May 2012 18:48:21
Northampton town close to signing Amari smith from Luton town.
fee iro £50000(3)(13)Why would Northampton pay for him ? there are 2000 players available free ... what a stupid postAmari Morgan Smith is out of contract this summer.

Swansea team next season GK:vorm
RB:Gunter CB:Williams CB:Caulker LB:
Taylor Rm:Dyer LM:Sinclair CAM:Siggy
CAM:Emnes Cm:Allen ST:Graham!(6)(25)Great team which should guarantee mid table finish but i think gunter and emnes may not be good enoughThe same caulker that is owned by spursEmnes will only get better, really maturing now as a footballer.Why would emnes play cam? no clue about football what so ever!Interesting. You could be pretty near the mark there. Emnes, yes. Gunter, strong possibility.No Britton? Personally I'd rather Clyne than Gunter if the deal could be done, and seeing as Sinclair and Dyer are more attacking wingers than side midfielders two CAMs are gonna be far too muchSo where is our best player? Leon...cant tick without him.What, No Leon Britton.True but i think they need a new right back though with pace perhaps kyle naughton or nthaniel clyne?Good team, but I think we could do with a better LB (no offence to Neil Taylor intended) and maybe bring in either Nathaniel Clyne or Adam Matthews as RB to strengthen out defence coz if we lose Rangel or Taylor to injury we haven't got cover atmMate you do know in football you can chnange positions so Emnes could play Cam if he was asked!Yeah, you won't be getting Caulker back. With King, Gallas and Nelsen all a year older and Dawson injury-prone, Caulker will play for Spurs next season.

And yes, I know everyone is a year older, but you know what I mean.Spurs already have Gallas, King, Kaboul, Dawson and Nelson on their books and they are looking at Jonas Olsson of WBA and Jan Vertonghen of Ajax that could leave Caulker bench warming for Spurs and he is farr too good for that. Better off returning to Swansea on loan or even full time.Caulker will be playing for Spurs. Dream on sad jack!


23 May 2012 18:33:20
West ham to sign Emile hesky due to that hesky is better than any of there players and he's free! Seems like there planning for the championship already lol(14)(35)Cheeky b.....

Lewis grabban to Crawley has fallen through after doncaster entered the race to sign him.

Will be completed by end of the week.(10)(9)Pretty sure they've almost completed talks to join Crawley


23 May 2012 18:21:53
Shrewsbury Town to sign some of these players in the summer:
Kane Ferdinand
Matt Ritchie
Mustapha Carayol
Lewis Grabban
Ryan Hall
Marlon Pack
Some of these players will be tough to sign due to championship competition.
With the signings Shrewsbury will challenge for promotion and possibly the title.(3)(28)Would love us to get some of them but with Matt Richie, Mustapha Carayol and Lewis Grabban we haven't got a chance.Mustapha Carayol? Jog on! No chance is he going Shrewsbury!Are you having a laugh you have no chance of Matt Ritchie. we turned down 800k from Bournemouth and Di Canio wants 2.5 million plus he wouldnt go to a smal club like Shrewsbury no disrespect.Ritchie, Carayol and Grabban very unlikely. dont lieDon't be silly.They wont sign anySeen as though ian sharps argue-ably your best player last season left to join rotherham its unlikely grabban would leave rotherham to join you. no disrespect to shrewsbury but this rumor is a fantasyI'm not lying CARAYOL will go! I can't see why not!Is that the Matt Richie who plays for Swindon or another one cos if its the one from Swindon you've got more chance of platting fog my old son!Ferdinand and hall are too good for Shrewsbury!What's so great about Matthew Ritchie did he run rings around Shrewsbury no did he score against Shrewsbury no league 1 player say no moreYet Hall is ok for LEAGUE 2 SOUTHEND. they are do able. no others thoughI am a shrewsbury fan and can say this is obviously someones wish list rather than reasonable targetsOnly likely ones are Pack and Hall the others are bcksAlso a shrewsbury fan and i had a laugh. why on earth would Matt Ritchie move to us, no logic at all. Rovers rejected a 6 figure bid for Carayol and we only do free transfers..... this guy is deluded.Wish list it is a wet dream list.

In Turner we trustDeluded Town fan I think. Sign them and we'll be back in the Conference having gone bust in no time.That guy talking about Ian Sharps is clueless. Learn your facts before you post! The only thing stopping Ian Sharps signing for Shrewsbury only offered him a one-year deal, whereas Rotherham gave him the security of a 2-year deal.

You're talking as if Rotherham are a big club.Sharps left because Rotherham offered him 2 years and Shrewsbury offered him only a 1 year deal.


23 May 2012 18:21:32
Wolves are leadin the race to sign bjorn sigurdarson from lillestrom, due to his age constant first team football is his priority wolves unlike the premier league teams interested can offer him that. He won't be joining any other championship club as the likes of Cardiff and Ipswich aren't ambitious enough for him. Wolves also have links to him with solbakken and Eggert Johnsonn.(14)(16)City and Town are going to finish above Wolves next season. I just know it you have no hope.Good that Sigursson is going to Wolves. You must admit, going to a club that couldn't buy a win with a team that made a Blue Square outfit look like Real Madrid is a damn sight more of an attraction than that tatty old Premiership. There's ambition!I ain't got a clue what either of the others are trying to say, face it he will be going to wolves!Lol we will be promoted one way or another let's fact it city there rubbish n so are townBitter people wolves for the league ...come show all these rubbish clubs how its and town hahaWolves were relegated so its funny that there fans call cardiff and town a bad clubCardiff have never been a big club and never will be they are nowt compared to swansea.Cardiff are a big club they have a huge fanbase and a new stadium there a club on the up wolves are on the way down


23 May 2012 18:18:44

Derby to sign Michael Jacobs who will inspire them to promotion next year.(14)(10)Im a derby fan he won't.Inspire them to promotion stop it my sides brilliantWe will get Jacobs wev been saying this for weeks p.s. We won't get promoted were a mid table side and always will be unless we get the man city owner before the fair play rule comes inI'm a derby fan and... yes he willTbf alone he wont but him, a 20 goal ST and another defender and we'll get play offsNo he won't lol. we will not get promoted by signing Jacobs and losing S.Davies and GreenGreen is rubbish and S Davies is good but will never get u play offs cus he neer finishes a seasonThink there's some forest florist fans on here. green and davies have been injured a lot recently and we have done fine without them. but sounds like our loyal derby fans must of seen a different season to the rest of us.


23 May 2012 18:17:38
Johnson will not leave city as many people seem to think, he only recently signed a new deal. He scored quite a few goals this season, many after coming on as a good sub, so City will be happy to use his as an impact sub! The only reason he will go is if he hands in a transfer request.
Hazard-City will offer him more than United
Thaigo Silva-a deal that will involve Tevez going the other way
Martinez-an alternative option to Barry who is getting old and De Jong
Cavani-as Tevez will leave in the Thaigo deal

Kolo Toure-he is getting old and his best days have gone, Thaigo will replace him
Bridge-he will be sold to anyone who will take him, if he is prepared to take a wage cut
Tevez-as a part of the Thaigo deal, he is too unreliabe, shown by what happened with the poster
And lots of other unplayed and out on loan player such as Santa Cruz(8)(19)I think Milan have made it quite clear that they won't be selling Thiago...I thought that was obvious when they said he costs 40m+You say city will offer more than united but hazard has agreed terms with both so surely that cant be the case?


23 May 2012 18:16:13

wba are talking to leverkusen over star tranquille barnetta(18)(13)


23 May 2012 18:09:57
celtic have started negotiations with wba over striker simon cox(23)(10)No they haven'tOh yes they haveThey couldn't afford himIts on sky sports newsWe could well afford him (we're preparing a 5m for Rhodes) but Cox is nowhere near good enough.How could they not afford him ?


23 May 2012 18:09:08
chelsea are in talks with villereal over the transfer of striker guissepie rossi(15)(21)No, they really are not. Rossi is out with a broken leg and will be lucky to be back before 2013.Rossi hasnt broken his leg! his ruptured his cruciate knee ligament, anyhow if fit by the end of the year a deal can still be done since villareal got relegated from la liga


23 May 2012 18:08:25
Jake Forster- Caskey to sign for a prem club after breakthrough season at Brighton.(7)(14)I agree that he deserves his chanceI doubt it. He has fantastic potential and brighton dont need to sellNot ready yet another couple of seasons and we'll knowYh ok 3 year contract left, plus arsenal were after him last year and said he wouldnt leave and want to progress with us..... epic fail.LoL whay do people put such bull no way is he going to the prem 1. he aint ready 2. he has said he wanted to stay at brighton 3. his contract isnt over and we would probs on loan him if we did anything!Although he was impressive. He didnt play enough to warrant a Premiership move. HGe will be a Premiership player soon. He needs to excell a regular first team place in the Championship first. He is likely to be a 'key' midfielder for albion next season (2012/13). Now Navarro has gone, ideal opportunity for him to prove he is good enough.Epic fail ?? dont be pathetic. You obviously know nought about football. Typical impatient so called fan.Wat breakthrough season? 5 apperances 2 goals


23 May 2012 18:07:35
despite not having a manager wba sporting directer dan ashworth is close to sealing a double swopp in the free market for full back steinnsson formerly of bolton and keeper tom heaton formerly of cardiff.
barnsley midfielder jacob butterfield has also bben approached(4)(5)Heaton is going to Sheffield Wednesday.


23 May 2012 18:07:30
Liverpool are most likely to get Roberto Martinez as their new manager.(14)(25)He's already said no once, so if this is true, what have they had to offer to make him change his mind ?Just shows how far liverpool have fallen,what a jokeFair play to liverpool if they do offer him the job.Look at how Di Matteo turned around Chelseas season. It would be refreshing to see a major premiership team not going for one of the usual big name suspects.Liverpool cant get big names anymore thats why they went for rodgers and martinez and even they to turned them down!how the mighty have fallen!!They drew up a shortlist of 5 managers, all the rest are paper talk; Benitez, Villas-Boas, Guardiola, Martinez and Rodgers. It's believed all along it's been a two horse race between Rafa and AVB but the management wanted to open up their options in an attempt to drive down the costs of the new manager.Hes pictured in america with john henry


23 May 2012 17:59:17
Doncaster are interested in Wrexham's Mattias Pogba. They'll also sign Grant McCann(11)(10)


23 May 2012 17:56:00
Ed any Decent Southampton rumours ? {Ed025's Note - yes mate ...apparently you are signing everyone!...only are being linked with jordan rhodes, and jay rodriguez..(14)(8)Haha cheersSaints offered just over 6m for jay according to lancs telegraph but does he want to move all the way down there and be stuck in a relegation dogfight all next season? i dont think so especially as there are established premier league sides nearer home like everton showing an interest. saints you aint got a chance of getting him...I think we do.Daily echo website belives saints have offered 6m for rodYeah yeah, just like we weren't going to get Jack Cork because he 'loved his time at Burnley'.Why wouldn't Saints get him? Everton are not exactley financial flush and need to sell before they can buy anyone.And how would you know weather the saints are going to be in a relegation dogfight are you mystic meg? he could do alot worse than saints anyway imo who would pay 6+m for him imo he is worth only half thatPersonally I think his options are Burnley or Saints. If he stays with Burnley, he will be close to his friends and family and will play the majority of games. Southampton a team now in the Premier League hoping for survival where he will be in the first team picture. However teams like Everton, Newcastle etc.... they already have a fair few strikers and will need to fight very hard to overturn all above him, so my conclusion is I hope he stays with Burnley and signs a new contract because I like to see players stay with their local team (le tissier and hopefully adam) , but would be very happy if we signed him but not for the asking price of 8 million

Jake (saints fan)You say we dont stand a chance but if he wants to PLAY in the premier league were his best chance. He wont get in the everton starting 11 maybe the bench, all the way south. Lol it aint that farHow do you know saints will be in a relevation dog fight? Everyone said we would struggle to be top half the table in the championship but we stayed top most the season and finished second to a reading that hit form at the the right time. COYRJay Rodriguez is a southampton fan mind you, playing for your childhood club is kind of his ambition. Just saying, he should want to...


23 May 2012 17:55:26
Yakubu to replace Holt at Norwich {Ed025's Note - or at weightwatchers..(10)(24)1st of all Holt ain't going anywhere, and he is not overweight, one of the reasons he has made the step up was the conditioning Lambert put him through.
If Yakubu was to come to Norwich Lambert would be on his case straight away about any excess weight, ain't going to happen because Norwich would not pay his wage demands.Ed015- Oi ! {Ed025's Note - its ed025 actually...lolYes but I am ed015.Bit harsh ed :D {Ed025's Note - i apologise....but only to ed015, for not reading his post properly...sorry mate..That's what i like a nice impartial editor crikey


23 May 2012 17:54:15
Frank nouble of west ham could sign one year deal with Yeovil town, depending on interest from other clubs in London region. Also if we can't get chris weale because of his wage demands then we will look to Scott shearer.(7)(9)How about the wage demands of Mr Nouble?I think Richar Hinds did well this season. He fitted in the team to great capacity making us stronger. I feel he could contibute well again especially alongisde a the new defender at the heart of defence. I feel N'gala and Ayling are strong as well. Jones and Haynes Brown aren't the best of players for promotion standards, though we need them. We need more then sixteen outfield players at least who belong to us. The choise of players becomes vital, I do feel however Hinds can be one of them. We have a tight budget we just need good two keepers sixteen or seventeen outifield players who belong to us plus four of five loans.


23 May 2012 17:49:54
reading have had bid accepted for Adrian Mariappa
so far - connolly, Mariappa, Parr, Sanchez and Rhodes being tracked(16)(10)MrRFC you post repeatedly every day yet nothing you say has come to light can you either shut up or tell us your real identity is being Brian McDermott?Just you wait and see, and i said yesterday Connolly will sign and next day reading post say we are in talks
MrRfcYou don't know what you are talking about - Mapps is in the Carribean for the next 2 weeks and has been there for a while - why make stuff up - what are you 12?The first post i made was two days ago BE PATIENT, when this happens i what an apology and just because we are interested in or approached someone doesnt mean we will sign them
MrRfcBut marriappa is in jamaica on international duty! pls note nothing major will happen till after the euros and summer break most likelyWhy does Mariappa have to be in the country for us to have a bid accepted
MrRfcDavid silva coming to reading and paul scholes for last season maybe ryan giggsLol southaptonNo offense to the people rubbishing this rumour, but there is such things as a mobile phone... this isnt the 16th Century. I personally do not believe this, especially since we have been heavily linked with Connoly and according to Sky, Reading believe that young Micheal Hector has what it takes to flourish in the Premier League.I don't understand why people start to mention the likes of Silva (like above) and players like that when Reading rumors appear! Since when does the likes Mariappa and Rhodes lead to David Silva, did I miss something and these players from non prem teams world class stars!?Reading have only shown an intrest no bid according to sky sports


23 May 2012 17:40:13
Burnley closeing in on Adam clayton and James meredith. They are also optimistic about joel ward and may return with an improved offer for O'neil. still no offers for Jay rod accepted yet(16)(7)Not true 5.5m offer for jar rod from an unnamed clubActually that "offer" never happened, no bid has been made.And no bid will ever be made for him BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH PLAYER. You may get a bid or two for your other striker Jay RODRIGUEZI said accepted, there have been offers just none accepted. Also stop being an person you knew exactly who i meant so whats the problem!So is their no such player as Leo messi then either then , or scholsey , if a player has a nickname does that mean they don't exist ? Get a gripAnd actually his nickname is roggy but I suppose it dunt matter coz he dunt even exist


23 May 2012 17:38:00

West Hams Recently released Striker

County.Nigel Clough Has been along
Admirer since he Scored agianst Derby
In the New year Fixture.(14)(11)Like every other club it's close season how can he be training with Derby?He means Frank nouble will be at moor farm for assessment then either offered a contract or trial for the upcoming pre-season.Note just because its the end of the season all aspects of football dont stop.coaches and other staff still workHow ! He only got realeased today but he would be a good signingThey are on holiday. how can he be training with them!!!

Grant Holt will not be leaving Norwich City after his problems have been resolved by the board.(26)(6)I hope holt wont go


23 May 2012 17:26:50
If Grant Holt does leave Norwich will replace him with Celtic striker Gary Hooper(9)(25)Buy him if he stays- what a strike force, hooper can replicate jelavicOh dear how many clubs is hooper playing forHooper wont leave celtic


23 May 2012 17:25:29
Norwich to sign:
Dani Pacheco - 2m
Henri Lansbury - 2m
Jordan Rhodes - 4m + K Smith on loan
Curtis Davies - 2m
Wilfried Zaha - 4m + C Martin
Kyle Naughton - 2m
and Lucas Piazon on loan from Chelsea

Total - 16m... Which Norwich will be able to afford to stabilize their place in the top flight.(13)(24)And Stuart Holden sorryNaughton will cost more like 6m and Zaha is rubbish compered to bennettWould all be good signings and all are realistic, but I can't see you getting all of them.More like relegationRhodes, Naughton, Zaha and Lansbury are the only players who will challenge for a first team placeCurtis Davies is worth more than 2mStuart Holden is overrated and no better than Howson, Fox, Hoolahan ^^
Zaha, waste of money, Chris Martin will probably leave thoughNorwich City fans please wake up and stop being so ridiculous.Kyle Naughton was a brighter star than Kyle Walker at the time we paid 10m for two kids from Sheffield United. Walker took his chances at Villa on loan and has evolved to the world class player you see, please do not be so blinkered to think we would allow a fitness & experience loan to you to materialise into some 2m transfer. Face it Naughton is just gaining experience and be grateful to have him at such a bargain on loan price. He is likely to join the main squad with Caulker who has been given the same experience at Swansea. Perhaps if you are lucky we might give you another years loan, but selling a young up and coming star for 40% of what we paid years before is just not happening.

On a worse note let me darken the hour. Paul Lambert Has just agreed to sign for Aston Villa.Mate Naughton is 23 not as young as Walker


23 May 2012 16:57:08
Reece Brown is wanted on loan by Swindon Town and Shrewsbury Town.(6)(5)He's also wanted back at Oldham, most likely to be as well.


23 May 2012 16:55:42
Young Manchester United Goalkeeper Sam Johnstone is a reported loan target for Preston North End and Shrewsbury Town.(11)(6)We wont we got stuckmannWe wont be looking at goal keepersOnly have one keeper atm so could be plausableOf course we're looking at goalkeepers we've only got Thorsten Stuckman, who is strongly rumoured to be replacing Paul Robinson at Blackburn. Robinson returning to the Premier League.Stuckman moving on, Johnstone is a replacement.


23 May 2012 16:52:03
Newcastle sign Romain Amalfitano, confirmation released soon. {Ed025's Note - i watch sky sports news as well..(18)(5)H yes edHaha gud one ed


23 May 2012 16:50:32
Frank Nouble hwo has been released by West ham is interesting Millwall and Watford(7)(10)Fits KJ's transfer strategy.Stop making up such rubbish. No chance at Millwall. He couldn't even score at Gillingham !!Neil Harris couldn't score for Gillingham, but look at his goalscoring record at Millwall!!True and it all depends on who the players are around youHarris is a league one player, just like Nouble.


23 May 2012 16:49:15
Shrewsbury Town have shown interest in former Arsenal players Rhys Murphy and Gavin Hoyte following their release.(5)(6)Not coming to shrewsGavin Hoyte definitely is!


23 May 2012 16:49:01
After his release from West Ham, John Carew is set to join his ex- valencia team mate Vicente, at Brighton !(15)(6)Please say this is false, carew is awfulSadly not up to Championship standard even these days. I can see him going home to Norway but certainly not going to Brighton who need a striker who can do just that!Please say this is true, carew is ideal. Just the type of physical presence Brighton need up front. Good in the air, strong, versitial, experienced and knows how to put the ball in the box.
whoever said he is awful needs a reality check.


23 May 2012 17:17:55
Gary Johnson is expected to name a new centre half farely soon. Defender Clarke Carlisle could be a possible candidate after being released form Burnley.(8)(5)


23 May 2012 17:17:34
Next season Crewe duo Nick Powell and Max Clayton will sign for prem clubs, if they are promoted to League 1. As well as that Ajay Leitch-Smith, Matt Tootle, Luke Murphy and Ashley Westwood will join championship clubs depending on promotion or not.(9)(6)If half their team were that good then they wouldn't be where they are.


23 May 2012 17:12:13
I work for Norwich city and can confirm that things happening with Dani Pacheco and Henri Lansbury are a little more than just rumours. watch this space very soon...(18)(9)Oh really. I think this rumour is reliable as a glass hammer!


23 May 2012 17:11:51
Chris Eagles to leave Bolton W.
His agent to exercise contract clause.
Possible clubs are Reading or Leicester.(15)(9)Btw that comment was meant to go to the post below!!Why would eagles go to leicester when bolton are better placed to be promoted next season?Just how are bolton better placed? do you know anything bout football or are you a deluded wanderers fan?

LeicesterLadNo we are not just a bigger premiership club that had bad luck last season and will win the championship factBolton have too many out of contract players, they are on a downward spiral, whereas leicester are on the up. they are being talked about, and being talked about means people take notice. people taking notice means you can attract players^ Clearly a deluded bolton fan. Not much hope when they get smaller attendances than leicester when in the prem. Championship will finish your little club.Leicester wont finish in top 2 this season bolton will fact!Not impressed with Eagles for Reading. Let Leicester have himBasically Bolton are a better team than Reading...They may have been relegated from the Premier League but it wasn't too long ago Leicester were relegated from the Championship.It wasn't too long ago that Norwich were relegated from the Championship and where are they now? The same with Southampton. As a Leicester fan I disagree that Bolton are a 'bigger club' but I do think you stand more chance of going up automatically than Leicester.Leicester gonna stay in championship forever, they are a nothing team in a horrible place. you will never see the premiership, come on you whites!Obviously all these leicester fans think they'll buy the league like they tried to last year.Chris eagles would be brill for bolton in champinshipLeicester will do better than bolton this coming from a cardiff fan


23 May 2012 17:03:47
Paul Lambert has hinted he has no plans to leave Norwich 'I absolutely love it here'.
In the summer he plans to sign:
Henri Lansbury
Dani Pacheco
Jordan Rhodes
Curtis Davies
Charlie Mulgrew
Liam Bridcutt
Stuart Holden
Kyle Naughton
Robert Snodgrass
Chris Gunter

He plans to sell:
Andrew Crofts (swap deal for Bridcutt)
Aaron Wilbraham
Zak Whitbread
Either Rudd or Steer (loan to a champ side)
Simon Lappin (loan for season plus £3M for Snodgrass)(12)(15)You really dont want mulgrew he couldnt hack it when was at wolves in the championshipSteer will not go to a championship side we had him at yeovil and personally i thought he was one of the worst keepers i have seen okay at shot stopping but doesnt command his area at allWhat do you drink? I want some. Its better than my wacky baccy!!!Wilbraham and Whitbread have been released. According to

Very reliable source. I;m an Arsenal fan by the way.

StEvEWhitbread and wilbraham are already released numpty, brad burton hereMulgrew has changed since then....have you been watching him? i guess not because its a shiat league eh so everyone is shiat. he took 3 different player of the year awards,he is a different player now, and has one of the best crosses and free kicks around...but thats your opinion, he will prove you wrong again next yearJed Steer has improved massively this season. He made a few appearances for the first team at Norwich and performed extremely well in doing so. He will reach the top. When you have no confidence in your back line then you dont perform well, im guessing that was his problem at Yeovil.Mulgrew wont go anywhere why would he want to be relegrated with norwhich when he will be playing champions league football with celtic?There will always be a long running argument between premier league mid table teams such as Norwich and Rangers/Celtic about who is better, who will sign for who etc.

My view point is that when you look at where your best players have come from, Celtic's 'Stars' have all come from middle of the road or lower end Championship teams. You even have our League 1 GK ffs. I dont know how playing 3 games in the Champions league with little to no chance of ever doing anything in the competition again, coupled with the least competitive top level league in Europe is much of a draw any more. Im sure playing in the most competitive top league against some of the worlds best teams on (more than likely) more cash is likely to start turning heads if we want them. BUt we went down the route of buying players from Scotland a few years back, and that took us down to league 1....


23 May 2012 16:48:06
Newcastle update
Romain amalfitano is having a medical today ahead of signing a three year deal.
Newcastle are in pole position to sign mapou yanga M'Biwa from montpelleir his agent has already held prelimanary talks with the club, the player is also keen to join newcastle as he feels he could settle in to the premier league easier alongside so many of his fellow countrymen. All of this comes after a move for fc twente's defender douglas stalled with negotiations proving too difficult due to the number of representatives he has.
Newcastle are also confident of tying up a deal for lille's 26 year old right back matt debuchy who said a final farewell to lille after an 18 year association with the club he joined at the age of 8, yohan cabaye has been instrumental in the deal the brings his best freind to the club for a fee of around 6 million which they are hoping to complete before the start of the euros and stave of interest from bayern and lazio.

Newcastle are expecting to loose both danny guthrie and danny simpson this summer. Simpson will be sold if he continues to refuse a new deal as club wont risk looseing him for nothing with villa and qpr interested in a 4 million deal.
Guthrie will be looking for first team football over the summer with wba, villa and norwich possible destinations in a 3 million deal. Dan gosling and leon best are the other potential departures as they will looking for regular first team football.

Newcastle will try to hold on to thier top players this summer however they have deals lined up to replace demba ba, cheick tiote and tim krul with bas dost , sven bender and hugo lloris if they did decide to sell(10)(5)Like Lloris will move to Newcastle.Dream on, I liked the reported interest in M'Biwa and Debuchy but you must be joking when you think Newcastle are in any position to sign Hugo Lloris?


23 May 2012 16:46:53
Palace now favourite to sign Joel Ward(9)(20)I've been saying that for the last 3 weeks.


23 May 2012 16:44:22
i think you will find that Motherwell accepted a bid from Blackpool for Jamie Murphy in January of £250k but he refused to leave. His form has been so poor that they want to cash in on him this window before his contract runs out next year!(4)(1)

Stoke city are showing an interest in former west ham striker John Carew who has been released by west ham since their promotion back to the premier league(5)(21)The same john carew that stoke did not offer a new contract to before he went to join west hamIt may be a bit tongue in cheek but it seems like every single tall available player gets linked to Stoke on these pages. Above post has it right though; why would Stoke want Carew when he failed to impress on loan in the 09/10 season. {Ed025's Note - becase he,s tall?....lolSomeone should learn their football before making up rumours :-)He was released by Stoke last season so why would we want him back - doh !!Haha Class, even the Ed is getting on the "we all hate Stoke" train....... learn how to spell mate!

Celtic will attempt to sign west broms
simon cox in a deal worth 1.5million

cox will score for fun at the scottish giants(15)(7)No he wont,and celtic will not be signing himCox has signed a new contract at west brom
also he will cost double that price.Please please take him celtic hes pantsHes hasn't signed a new contract albion have taken up the years option in order to sell him for a fee rather than him walking away, just like they did with marek cech.

celtic don't want him though even though it was reported on sky it was just his new agent trying to create interestWhy does everyone think we sell our best players really cheap? You're looking at at least 3m for Cox!


23 May 2012 15:57:43
Northampton town are set to sit down with david james over a possible move to sixfields after he was released by bristol city(6)(19)Not very likely...


23 May 2012 15:51:51
Saints may be after Giovanni dos santos of spurs. Surplus to requirements at white heart lane and could therefore be aquired for a knock down price-

Saintsweb(18)(10)Never heard of a knock down price at whl only overpricedLots of clubs have been after Gio but have not come up to Spurs asking price so i cant see him going for a knock down price

ou812Deluded.Dos santos favours a move back to la liga, was on his way to villareal before they got relegatedAs said above he will only move back to La Liga, Udinese put in a big offer last summer but he rejected it because he wants Spain, he won't move to another English clubYou're looking at 10m plus. Sounds ridiculous I know but that's what they're willing to offer for him in Spain and Italy so why would Spurs sell to a domestic team for less?


23 May 2012 15:50:37
Izale Mcleod in talks with Oxford United following his release from Barnet, as is Lee Holmes after being unhappy with his spell at Swindon following his loan at Oxford.(8)(15)Agreed , one to watch , reckon this could happenWhat a load of rubbish......they need to build a stadium with 4 sides first before splashing the cash!!Considering We've (oxford) signed a left winger already, and that Holmes loved his time at Swindon, we wont be after him. And he wont be interested.
Also we have 5 strikers at the club and have stated we are not after anymore. The manager has already said we're only going to sign a left winger, we got Sean Rigg from Port Vale,
A right back, and 1 or 2 centre midfielders, As waiting for a current player to accept a new deal.With Oxford looking to move some of their current strikers on, don't dismiss this McLeod linkLee Holmes rumour is garbage! BUT however i have a very good mate who is involved with Oxford United Football Club, says Izale Mcleod will be an Oxford United player early next week.

James Constable will be sold on, after the Mcleod deal goes through. Im told Constable will be heading to League 2 Plymouth.Can believe that beano would be going to Plymouth, I would like to think he would stay at Oxford and work well with another strikerYawn! Constable is not being sold on. why do people need to lie?
Chris Wilder is happy with our attackers in our squad. We are not looking to sell or sign any strikers! IF a striker was going to leave, It would be Dean Smaller who was on loan at Bradford for 6 months!
Oxford are hoping, midfielder Adam Chapman signs. And then looking to sign another centre midfielder to replace Asa Hall who thankfully went to Shrewsbury, and a new right back!
SOURCE : Chris Wilder!!Everybody knows Beano won't go! He loves the club.


23 May 2012 15:49:05
Orients Dean Cox has agreed a move to Crawley Town and will sign when he returns from holiday.

The fee is £200,000.(13)(11)Believable. Cox has been added by the Crawley CEO on his twitter. No other reason for this?Absolute drivel !


23 May 2012 15:47:37
Calvin Andrew will be having a medical at Leyton Orient later on today.

He has agreed a one year contract and will spearhead Orients attacke next season.

Meanwhile George Porter will reject Orients contract offer to sign for Brighton.(11)(8)Another striker who can't score :(Porter - Won't be coming to us.I can confirm that calvin andrew is having a medical tommorow and if all goes well will sign a 2 year deal with the os.He was so pony for orient that he was dropped before his loan even finished, so a very strange signing if trueNicky adams i think will happen.............Porter to brighton no chance.....Calvin andrew youre having a laugh..........Great news for os fans, calvin andrew had just signed a 2 year deal at the os, and there will be a press conference tommorow at 2 pm...No chance on Andrews , if slade signs Andrews then before a ball is kicked the fans will be singing for him out . Shame about good player with a bright futurePlease dont sign andrews i cant stand him what a waist of wageswe could spend on a decent or younger and better playerUmmm why is that great news?I probably have more of a chance than scoring than Andrew. Nine goals in a 153 games- 'nuff said.Please noHeskey could probably score more than andrews

Wigan will look to sign Leeds United pair Ross McCormack and Adam Clayton if both are still available in 2 weeks time when Martinez gets back from his holiday in Spain.

Plus dont believe rumours that Martinez is meeting with the Liverpool owners on thursday.
Martinez is on a family holiday and is no longer considering the Liverpool job after seeing and hear what the Liverpool fans think of him.(11)(11)Good we dont want him,why get rid of dalglish for a lump it forward manager,wouldnt last six monthsLump it forward manager? Clearly not seen Wigan play then. We play some of the best football in the league.Martinez a lump it forward manager?!?!?! are you for real?No you dont,please keep martinez so you wll be religatrd next seasonLump it forward manager ! You obviously do not know anything about football . Martinez likes to play attacking , free flowing passing football , on the floor and not in the air . If I am not mistaken thats how the great Liverpool sides of the past used to play . Before posting actually watch some football and get your facts right . (Phil Thompson on Sky Sports said that when Wigan played Newcastle it was like watching Brazil )I actually want him to get the job, any new manager will get my full backing.Ouch your wrong about martinez!Will be nice if we get both :)

Having seen him play several times this season, Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman is on the verge of signing Leicester striker David Nugent, who is rumoured to be travelling to London this weekend to undergo a medical, however the Scotsman may face stiff competition from Blackpool and rivals Brighton.

Also on Freedman's radar are Swansea's Stephen Dobbie, Norwich striker James Vaughan and Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson.(10)(33)Congratulations on your boredom!!Nugent must be driving on the sea to get to London seeing as he is in Tenerife on his holidays! Check his twitter small boy beofre you make up liesSorry but why would you think that Vaughan is on his radar. He will be very much in Lamberts first team plans now that he has recovered fully from his injury which kept him out of the team most of last season. We spent good money on him, and he is starting to show some of his promise, just needs a good run and the goals will come. He aint going anywhere.Im a palace fan and this rumour made me laugh.we couldnt match leicester on wages plus im sure he is happy there.Nuge will not sign for u or blackpool he hates both teamsHe probably made this to get it posted on the BBS. Fair play son.& we wouldnt wont that person at Brighton I wouldnt even wont him at palace as Id feel sorry for them!!Dreamer! What makes you think leicester with all there millions are gonna sell there top scorer? get a life!

LeicesterLadLeicesterLad? anyone that calls themselves lad is a right Colin.

Carl Jenkinson is one of the worst footballers to brace the world if he comes to palace I will get rid of my season ticket.

23 May 2012 15:04:41
MAN UTD are looking at ARTURO VIDAL of Juventus following speculation that Bayern are very much leading the race to sign Utd's primary target Javi Martinez. Bayern are willing to part with £35M for the spaniard whereas Utd are not keen on spending a penny over £25M for a defensive midfielder. This is where the interest for Vidal comes in who scored 8 goals this season as an offer of around that amount would encourage the Serie A champions to sell. Juventus have already expressed their interest in signing Udinese's promising defensive mid Kwadwo Asamoah who could be seen as a replacement for the departure of Vidal.(7)(11)Vidal is an extremely classy player, once described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove". He'd be a great signing for Utd (or anyone else) but, bearing in mind Juve only bought him last year, I can't see him moving on just yet.Bet Vidal is handy with a hair dryer!


23 May 2012 15:03:16
When it becomes clear that Martinez is not leaving Wigan they will look to sign Rhodes, Dos Santos and James McFadden, who wants to stay in the North West.(13)(8)I hope martinez wont go to villa,that would be a big mistake,they didnt standbye macliesh who was a fallguy for terrible players.I hope he goes to Liverpool.

Southampton, whu and wba weighing up a bid of 1.8 million for Granada winger/striker Dani Benitez. His agent says he'd love to join the epl.

23 May 2012 14:38:54

Louis van Gaal received the offer to become the new technical Director at Liverpool. Together with the new manager, he will be responsible for the first team results(14)(5)Now, I know livpool realy mean bizness, hope 2 see a good manager being signedResponsible for first team results? Nonsense.

DoF is responsible for scouting and recruitment - if the Head Coach then doesn't make use of the players by achieving results then he is solely responsible.

If what you're saying is true, that means a poor run of results would mean that both the DoF AND the Coach would be sacked. Again.

I don't think they're THAT silly...Oooh, they're pretty silly

I'm a Leeds fan and I'm getting so fed up with the Bates regime of not having any money to buy players to get us into the Premiership. He expects Warnock to trawl through the bargain basement and still achieve promotion. What planet is he living on?Players are wanting to leave and god only knows why any player would want to join us. Very Very depressed he talks the talk but doesn't walk the walk. Bates out please(30)(3)Give it a rest!!!!! i see all the other championship teams have signed 5 or 6 players already, we have too many negative fans, we where a massive club once, now we are not and rebuilding takes time!! not seen lines and lines of arabs willing to buy us! and i tell you why because we have to many fans like you who live in cloud cuckoo land, get real and be patient m.o.tStop moaning look at what Leicester did when they spent money, it's not all about spending, Leeds is ment to have one of the best academys in the country, look there for players, I'm a reading fan and look what we done with a shoestring budgetPeople who moan about their chairman failing to back the manager financially make me laugh. You want someone else to spend their money on YOUR club but will moan when your season ticket price goes up to cover costs.Doe,nt it just get on your tit,s when you get idiots like the last 3 who have replied to this thread ! Bates is a Leech ! All he has done since buying the club for 1 per share ! is hound the council for rights to build on the East stand facing car park ! Fabian Delph 8mill Johnny howson 2mill kasper smicheal 2mill !! And what as the mr Big put back in !? NOTHING ! He has invested in corporate box,s !!! whats his next big idea ? use the east stand function rooms as a casino !! Bates wont pay wages to keep the rising Elland road stars ! All bates as done is line his pockets ! with the ONLY BIG club IN YORKSHIRE ! no doubt the !st person who commented was a Bradford city fan 2nd a Sheff utd fan And as for the Reading fan ! person Get a life Your club has just been bought by a Billionaire so don't come the ! Oh didnt we do well speech Self self-righteous P":CKWe (reading) have been a selling club for years and have still reached the prem twice, every season we have had to sell players (long, Siggy, Doyle, hunt , kitson) the list goes on) the new chairman has not spent a penny aside from Roberts wages which isn't anything major. At least your club is still running unlike other teams who spend money and it soon hits back at them

Ex Plymouth Keeper Luke McCormack has starting training with town(15)(4)Yes since February when he started day release from prisonAlot of Town fans not happy with this because of what McCormick did which was kill two children whilst twice over the drink limit and also the father is paralysed all due to him drinking.
There is going to be alot of unhappy fans if he signs. He is on trial for preseason so we will have to see what happens next with this.What a complete Joke!
This guy should not be aloud to play football for anyone ever again!Which Town? I failed clairvoyant stage 2!

Ed can we have a rumours page just for the psychics?So Joey Barton goes a little bit nuts on the football pitch during the game and gets pilloried for it but a convicted killer possibly signing for a league team gets LESS press coverage!! No wonder football is ruined.Swindon town if anyone confusedI don't think its a bad thing he's done his time and will have to cope with it for the rest of his life. if he plays football again maybe it would help him get over it. not saying what he done wasn't completely irresponsible, stupid etc but everyone deserves a second chanceAgreed with that last comment, Plus remember Lee Hughes (Notts County) Hit and run and went to prison, Came back to play football at a similar level.

West Ham to sign Danny Simpson from Newcastle(5)(14)Quite literally anyone is welcome to him. Even Sunderland I'd let take him, hell, I'd be happy for the mackems to take him, maybe they'll slide even further from their expectations. Hard as it is to believe.

Joey Barton is signing for WHU! Should be done by next Wednesday!(14)(34)And He will make his premiership debut sometime around Christmas - VERY unlikely ANYONE will touch him or even speak to him before they know how long he will be out.Good player but we wont be able to use for a while as he is likely to have a long ban for that viliont conductHe would drag West Ham into a relegation scrapHe should be banned from football for life.

He WILL disgrace the game again no matter what he says.He has a 12 match banD. Sullivan specifically said in an interview with the Sun that the ONLY player he would never ever sign would be Barton. If someone has told you this rumour then they are wrong/lying. But personally I think you just made this up on the spot. {Ed025's Note - dont buy the sun!

23 May 2012 12:44:21
Robert Snodgrass (£5.5m), Jordan Rhodes (£5.5m) and James Mcfadden (free with £500K signing on fee) all Wigan bound! Wigan can expect good creativity and goals form these acquisitions!(10)(31)I hope so, Leeds could do with 5.5 mil , would get 4 players for that!Rhodes + Snodgrass fees will not be near those figures.Im a Wigan fan and although I hope these deals happen, I doubt they will. There is a really good feeling around Wigan ATM and Whelan is willing to invest in the team as long as Martinez is still here.

But I agree with the above comments, neither Snodgrass or Rhodes are worth 5mill+Maybe about 5mil for all threeObvious lie... wigan cant afford to pay out 10mill+ just like thatIf henderson cost liverpool 20 mil,snodgrass is a bargain far better player.Snodgrass and rhodes are bit expensive for wigan. aren't they?Wigan can afford to pay out 10mill... they are one of the best ran clubs in the countrySnodgrass and Rhodes will easily command 11m between them!! Only people who don't know what they are talking about would disagree!

Readings Jimmy Kebe is unlikely to be able to make the step up to the Premier leagues with chamionship favourites charlton the most likely target(8)(25)That's just all that can be said about thatCharlton are only favourites to be relegated! Kebe is too good for such an insignificant teamPhha!! good one. kebe will be the drving force of our attack from the wingJust LOL at this rumourJimmy Kebe will storm the premier league. Who wrote that post is a monkey. Ok he might get found out after a few months but his pace will be the downfall of the lower teams in the premiership. There's only one jimmy kebe!Get a life have the school holidays startedWho are these people who post this rubbish.he's just signed a new contract after the club went out of their way to stop him from leaving in the summerAnd why is he unlikely to make the step up? He's quality and I he's going to leave considering he signed a new contact in JanuaryHe'll need to pull his socks upWhat a load of complete bcks!!What a laugh. Kebe only signed a new contract to be in the prem. go away unless you have a true rumour.Kebe could be hit or miss in the prem league I agree last time he was awful and kept falling over all the time if he makes the grade he could bea very good player, but I cant see him being sold.Are even a charlton fan? Because real charlton fans like me know Kebe wont be coming to us, also Chris Powell said he will buy sensibly not buying everyone.Charlton...favourites... are you mad ?!?! Bolton are the favourites you deluded Charlton fan and alot of clubs bigger than Charlton want Jimmy Kebe. Get yourself clean mate, drugs are bad.Why stop with Kebe, Charlton might as well sign Ronaldo whilst they're at itJimmy will be playing in the prem next season Reading not going to let him go to a team like Charlton.Considering charlton are an overall bigger club in terms of history and success, buri agree that kebe wont be with us and wil be fine in the prem but that person that said we are insignificant needs to look at his own club before saying stuff like that!Lol its only reading ffs back down next yearYeah saying Charlton are insignificant is rash. They donned league 1, wouldn't surprise me if they do really well next season

Challenge for play-off places maybe?Reading will be relegated after a season in the Prem, so Kebe may as well stay there.Please ignore this rumour it is started by and propergated by an Ipswich fan, same as all the others.Loving the people saying we'll be relegated next year, yeah cause our track record in the fa cup hasn't been good against prem teams, both everton and liverpool beaten in last couple of years and a strong man city side given a good run last year! yeah were really gonna just crumble under the force of these almighty sides, also to add that last year teams that did the best of promoted sides kept most same squad (what were doing) when people like qpr got rid of many key players just to struggle this year (not that west ham have just got rid of 6 and a couple of them have been pretty key to them cough cough) not saying we'll stay up for a good 20 year period or nothing but just annoyed people say were going down this season without giving us even half a chance despite our track record...I do think reading will stay up with the players and money they're prepared to spend, I could see you doing a Norwich/ SwanseaYou beat those teams in the fa cup well done, but may i point out you lost to charlton in the carling cupIt was a second string charlton side aswell. I can see reading breaking records, records for the least amount of points in premier league history!

Crystal Palace are on the verge of completing a deal for Aleksander Tunchev, the defender is a free agent after leaving Leicester City and previously enjoyed a spell at Selhurst Park last season. The club is also seeking to tie up deals for Paul McShane and Peter Ramage who are also free agents this summer, it is likely both will be signed by the club however Birmingham City, Blackpool and Blackburn Rovers are also interested in signing Peter Ramage

Jose Zamora is flying in from Spain to talk to Palace about a move from Real Madrid Castilla, the Barcelona born winger is keen on a move to England but other Spanish clubs are currently circulating the player this summer.

Palace are also looking at loaning Conor Wickham in for the season from Sunderland although a number of Championship clubs are also interested in securing Wickham services on loan for next season.(13)(10)Ipswich have first refusal on Wickham, clause built into the transfer.

LEEDS NEWS: Neil Warnock is said to be interested in Gavin Hoyte who was released from Arsenal. Paddy Kenny may be joining as early as next week from QPR as he wants to join up with former manager. Other rumours I have heard include Barton coming to Elland Road and Diouf joining him. Adam Clayton is expected to join Burnley and Aidy White is interesting Celtic. Tom Lees is talking to the club over a new contract.(15)(14)Considering you could not raise 450k for Joekl Ward and had to pull out your very ambitious or deluded at Elland RoadWarnock may be interested in a lot of players, but if Bates doesn't back him then that's that.Wot a joke that would be.cmon sparky you said we would never be in that position again. Kd and oh.
oh oh noI could see kenny going but not DioufWarnock will not want diouf warnock thinks he is a sower rat

The mighty rams had a chance to buy him a couple of years ago, but decided not to due to his wage demands.Take Emnes please, he spends more time on his arse that playing football, but sadly i don't think this post is too reliable.Why would Sinclair want to drop down to go to Aston Villa??Its not football manager mateHeard that defoes coming in on loan? dont think it would happen tho due to wage demands?

We'll just stand by and watch players go to other clubs.Why would he take a step down by signing for ipswichStep down? so would it be nothing wrong if he signed for Leicester then?Hes not for sale hes staying with notts


23 May 2012 10:42:06
Ipswich Town have had 500k offer for Alan Judge turned down today

Source:The Club itself NCFC(16)(5)Clubs hardly ever accept the first offer they receive.

Peterborough's Lee Tomlin close to agreeing terms with stoke city(4)(20)Looks like a Jon Walters mk2. Great! (heavy hint of sarcasm)Is he over 6ft 4in .....if not wont fit in at Stoke.....Been rubbished by DMac ......


23 May 2012 10:34:49
west ham are in talks with Henri Lansbury and are close to stealing him from sport(9)(4)Would be a good signing for either west ham or norwich, the boys is a real talent.

Swansea to sign a new striker by the end of the weekend Simon Cox is reportedly coming to Swansea Friday for a fitness test. This deal will be £1.5m and he will sign a 2 year deal.(15)(6)SUPER PLAYER HAS BEEN EXCEPTIONAL EVERY TIME HE HAS PLAYED FOR IRELAND
DUBLIN PADDYHe won't be sold until the new West Brom manager is in place and if he is sold it won't be for 1.5mCox has just signed a new contract at The Baggies so he wont be on the move for as little as 1.5 million or even the january transfer window at the earliest if he does n,t get enough games under the new managerSimon hasn't signed a new deal, west brom have decided to activate a 12 month extension clause so they didn't lose him on a free transfer and could demand a fee, owned

ED just seen Whittingham at the Madejski Hotel! Was staying there for a conference and saw him being greeted by Nicky Hammond.

Any further info you could give us? Or is it just a generic talk he's doing with a few clubs? {Ed001's Note - as far as I am aware, he is not interested in moving anywhere, though I guess his head could have been turned by the chance of a return to the Prem.}(4)(14)Whittingham tweeted earlier about the holiday he is on outside the UK so I don't think he is in Reading any like Ed said he isn't going anywhere.

Paul green

aaron cole
alex witham
Connor doyle(loan)(9)(13)Who will Leeds be getting in the White swap deal?Steve daviesWould be happy with every single one of those signings, but unfortunately, can only see Jacobs, Pearce and possibly Russell out of those. Ogude would struggle with a work permit, White is Premiership-bound, and Nielsen is very highly rated in his homeland.You do realise White will be a free agent, so you'll be giving us a player for free and then paying us in compensation (1.5mil) because of White's age. Because that makes perfect business sense.Ogude has now got a work pernitIs the poster about White being a free agent stupid? If the deal was to go through, then the compensation package would be Steve Davies, it isn't just limited to moneyConor Doyle next season is the stand in right mid next season maybe a couple starts


23 May 2012 09:53:54
Rotherham are keen on signing former Miller Kevin Ellison from Morecambe for a fee in the region of 60k. Steve Evans is a big admirer of the left sided player who has just scored 17 goals for the shrimpers this season. Evans is also chasing Kyle McFadzean and keeper Scott Shearer from former club Crawley.(8)(6)Kevin Ellison recently signed a new contract at Morecambe FC and Manager Jim Bentley sees him as an important player next season. Very unlikey that any move to Rotherham or anywhere else will happen.


23 May 2012 09:52:50
Port Vale interested in striker Karl Hawley(16)(1)Who is he? never heard of him.Ex Notts County,Carlisle,Preston, he is a striker, played at Crawley on loan last season.

Richard Hinds to sign for Yeovil Town today(6)(3)Maybe tomorrow if himself and the club can agree terms. All I can say is that we are negotiations with Richard Hinds as well as many other targets.Guys we must not forget he was on a development contract, the envitable was his release at the end of the season It's about development. he player in the Cyprus second division for a time apparently. He maybe could handle league two but he didn't play at all this season, that proves something because Skiverton and Johnstone are experienced and realise the standard needed. He will stay a reserve player most likely at Hereford as well.1 - Skiverton isn't experience in the managerial world.
2 - Who is Johnston


23 May 2012 09:38:30
Everton interested in Gary Hooper from Celtic. Moyes has long been an admirer of the striker who scored 29 goals this season.(19)(19)If Southampton are not going to pay over the odds for him then Everton won'tHeard this too as he wants to team him with Jelavic. dont know if Everon will get enough money unless they sell first.Everton have more money than southampton, theyre getting 10 million for the nike kit and hooper would rather sign for everton than southamptonBalls mate. hooper would rather sign for adkins at the saints. thats obvious like. dont just say everton cause you think there the bigger team. its not always about that and also southampton have alot of money abd quite a bit more than everton do. david moyes transfer budget the past 4 years anyone?Why would you want to sign for Southampton over Everton? Southampton are delegation fodder whereas Everton are established in EPL.

Tom Curle ‏@LawFirmFootball
Got a busy week ahead! Meeting at @MANCH235TER tomorrow then off to wigan wednesday, coventry thursday and derby friday

Live tweet form twitter(0)(9)Derby are NOT signing james caton we are getting Michael Jacobs and if failing that Daniel Powell.James Caton is at best
a league 2 player.Otherwise he would have featured for Bolton by now and
Bolton are not favourites to go back up because they will be loosing alot of players.So if he was Npower championship stanard they wouldnt let him go.For a winger he has no pace but average skillNo chance are CCFC spending .05m let alone the numbers being put forward - JOKESigning for which club??That is Directly off of the Twitter account of Tom Curle and is a copy and paste job. Tom Curle is his agent and James Caton is being brought by Derby County mark my words....Ive heard of Sheffield Wednesday but who are Wigan Wednesday?Ha ha. .Caton is signing for Derby, his twitter feed confirms it, but this post is ridiculous


23 May 2012 08:54:07
For those who said Paul Lambert has asked to leave Norwich City to go to Aston Villa, stop making things up. PL said at a interview last night at Adam Drury's testimonial: "I am delighted I am at norwich if that's what you're asking. I never said a word that I want to get away. Not a thing and people jump to conclusions about what I say or what I don't say"

He earlier refused to talk about Holt leaving, and they are still in talks.
Hopefully both will stay.(14)(9)To be fair, Lambert made a rod for his own back when he told the media he was could not answer the question if he would be in charge next season. He obviously was putting feeler sout for the Villa job and is now back tracking. Either that or he has made a major PR gaffNo , He has just negotiated a nice pay rise for himself.He was covering himself incase he got an offer he couldnt refuse. If he came out and said he was fully committed to the club and the Liverpool came in with a progressive plan, money to spend and time to build a team rather than expecting instant results, which no one would blame him for taking, he would look a right ct. Hes always been the same. He used this last season to secure a bigger budget, and im sure they will have squeezed a few more s out for him again in the light of this, this year.

Hes happy, hes settled and (unless a BIG offer comes in, not Villa...) he aint going anywhere!He played the same game when Burnley made an approach, its what agents make people do these days. keeps him in control. he is a huge asset to NCFC and will leave eventually so he has to play the game to keep progressing and build his reputation. dont think it will be this time with villa though, theres a reason other managers are turning down the chance to manage there right now.


23 May 2012 08:49:46
Leeds radio aire just reported interest from portsmouth for billy painter(19)(7)Yes,the stadium could do with a lick of paint-but he should insist on cash up front!
They currently can't afford to buy a can of Dulux, let alone sign a player. Even "frees" expect to get wages.WARD is the bait and Pompey need a stiker for Div 1. Paynter good at this level. Pompey losing players and no money. Leeds got no money but want to offload to reduce Ward feePaynter set to leave on a free not for a fee


23 May 2012 08:41:37
Reading are scouting 18 year old 6ft 5 Panathinaikos keeper Stefanos Kapino. Valued at £2m and also being tracked by Arsenal and Juventus. Extremely young, but already a bit of experience. Sal Bibbo flew out to watch him. This could mean the sale or l(10)(12)Well done on breaking a story that had already been broken by reading 5 hours ago. Clap clap clap.I dnt know how true this is, we have enough keepers already. Federici should of made the Chmpionship team of the season and we have a good back up as well.Reading are not going to let sentimental value get in the way of signing someone with great potential. Why would we not want to sign a player with much more potential than any keeper we have at the club. He fits the general mould of a Reading player and valued at 2million, we wouldnt need to overspend which is something both Owner and Manager have vowed not to do.Can't hurt to have some depth after Feds. Only 18, why not give him a shot, could be greatReading are gonna get relegated and i am a reading fan!"Reading are gonna get relegated and i am a reading fan!"

Firstly I doubt you are a reading fan and secondly unless you have a crystal ball you don't know this."Can't hurt to have some depth after Feds" What...? We already have McCarthy and Andersen, both top young keepers. If that's not depth I don't know what is.I really can't see Reading being relegated next season. We were the best team in the league last season, we were champions, we played as a team. We have money. We will most likely buy a good goalscorer or two, and build the rest of the team gradually. We'll just have to wait and see but I can't see us being relegated next season.

Mark McGhee has spoken to his old club Motherwell about a fee for forward Jamie Murphy. He has been put off by their £50k valuation however and looks set to sign Jon Nurse from Dagenham on a free(3)(8)Murphy wud be more than 50k ya numpty

23 May 2012 08:24:33
I went to the Norwich VS Celtic Adam Drury testimonial match last night(Norwich won 2-0) and with the way Lansbury played(he scored the 2nd goal, and I was directly on the line where I was sitting, and it only JUST slowly rolled across the line), Lansbury was fantastic. Some amazing passes and shots from him. I would love if we even just tried to sign him.

Pacheco was also good, played in a kind of CAM position after starting the 2nd half beside Wilbraham. He would seem like a fantastic signing.
OTBC(17)(8)Lansbury would be a class signing, that man couls hit a 50 pence peice with 40 yard ball! utter class!


23 May 2012 08:17:18
Any Middlesbrough news?(4)(14)Yes still an awful place to live! :-)Ledesma talks are still taking place]Bid for Bristol Rovers' Mustapha Carayol rejected as well.Yep its rainin!Adam Rooney from Birmingham seen at rockcliffe park this moring he was in there for around 2 hoursRiverside renamed the smog arena for next seasonWhy come on here and slag off the town, fair enough if you have the balls to say where you come from, erm but you obviously dont.

micheal owen might be leave man u as stoke have shown intrest(6)(24)Might? He has not been offered a new contract and is available as a free transfer!Hes been rleased by man united. stoke looks his set destinationI would say he is very likely to leave Man Utd as he has been released hasnt he?Michael Owen HAS left Man Utd. His contract expired. Nothing to do with Stoke.Micheal Owen might be leaving Man U--- He is leaving they not giving him a new contract and his current one runs out next month!Why are top clubs still interested in this loser


23 May 2012 08:07:15
Bounemouth, Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace have approached Miles Addison's representatives. Derby have transfer listed the CB/CM.(14)(7)I hope one of the other teams sign him not us at bournemouth wasent impressed with him when he was on loan with usYour comment fills me with joy if he was rubbish at league 1 what hope do championship teams have


23 May 2012 07:50:22
Dani Pacheco and Henri Lansbury both played for Norwich in Adam drurys testimonial last night. This increases norwichs chances of getting them both. Deal could be done soon.(24)(12)Lansbury has already said he is close to joining west ham,Norwich have no Monet for transfers hence lambert wanting villa jobPure speculation. I think they were just all close friends when they were both on loan at Norwich.

It'd be great to see them join Norwich, but I don't think last nights testimonial was a trial.

By the same logic, Huckerby will be returning to Norwich.Of course Norwich have money for transfers. Lambert himself said he has a similar pot to last year where he spent (summer and Jan combined) close to 18million. Not up there with the big boys but its a decent amount. And as this season we only need 3-4 quality additions rather than an overhaul it is enough.Norwich have no money? Spent 18m last season, with probably the same or a little bit more this season...


23 May 2012 07:35:26
Here is a rumour, with a little fact behind it from the THISISSTFC web page:
Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson has revealed that Town have previously courted Posh forward Nicky Ajose.

Rumours were rife on the internet yesterday linking the young frontman with a move to the County Ground, and Ferguson said Swindon have taken a look at the 20-year-old in the past.(9)(2)Would love this..... Swindon have some cash to risk at what amounts to a young lad who will never make the grade, crawley tended to take on players we threw money away on and with steve Evans moving to Rotherham we haven't had a club silly enough to take on our poor transfer decisions


23 May 2012 07:28:34
Peterborough will use the money from the sales of Boyd, Taylor, Ball, Tomlin, Micky Ajose, Mark Little & McCann thought to be in the region of £5.5m and the Ryan Bennett money to fund the following signings as Darren Ferguson wants to overhaul his squad. Luke Freeman & Michael Bostwick - £1.9m Stevenage. Luke O'Neill - Mansfield - £450k. Danny Swanson - Dundee United - Free. Stephen Gleeson - MK Dons - Free. Ben Amos - Manchester United - £400k. Brian Woodall - Dagenham & Redbridge - £180k. Tom Heaton - Cardiff - Free(11)(14)Heaton will sign for Sheff Wed to be with his old mate D Jones again, he's too good for Peterborough... McMackay should never have let him go.Too Good For Peterborough But Yet Tour Saying He's going To Sign For Sheff Wed ? How's That Work Then.And Peterborough are too good for Cardiff the perienial play off flops, good luck with Joe,You won't get Gleeson for free. He's under 24 so you would have to pay (usually to the value of the contract we have offered him, which is about 200K by my reckoning)Dream on posh


23 May 2012 07:25:59
Ex-Man City player Gai Assulin is signing for Cardiff, Huddersfield or Derby.(13)(16)UMMM Barca, Man City and Derby!! speaks for itself really.Derby won't sign Assulin, Clough prefers players from the lower leagues - can't get enough of them.


23 May 2012 07:22:16
West Ham have offered James McFadden a contract in an attempt to steal him from Wigan who had offered him a trial.(13)(11)Will never sign him west ham are relagation favourites he will probaly go to an upcoming team like wiganI dont think so . West Ham have plenty of strikers and I think Wigans strong scottish links would make them favourites . He would be a good experienced squad player .This sounds plausable! West Ham do need some creativity and PL experience would be vital! Also might help that Jordan Rhodes is coming (Scottish link).

He won't be sold.Posh will not get him,much bigger championship clubs in for him like burnley

Louis van gaal to come in as liverpools director of football with avb taking over as manager. With these two in charge Liverpool will attract a higher calibre of players because of AVB's Brazilian contact and van gaal's years of managing at the highest level(10)(14)How will this gurarantee a better calibre of player exactly? The bigger name players will not go to Anfield as there is no Champions League football and the club are gradually losing touch with the clubs in the top 5. Liverpool will be a long term project with no quick fix.Who are the top 5 then??Pretty clear that untied city arsenal chelsea and spurs are miles ahead of liverpool.even everton finished above can a team who finished 8th attract top quality players.liverpools days of being a top club are well and truly over

Up The Pool!Blackpool might get steven davies but never theo robinson, we do need strikers awell ya know..."Blackpool will be keeping Thomas Ince and Matt Phillips"

That is yet to be seen, don't be surprised to see at least one of them go.You wont get theoNeither matt Phillips or Tom Ince will leave, their careers have just started and first team football is guaranteed at blackpool, and who would walk away from that ?

Apparently Watford have been watching Billy Boden who is on loan at Crewe from Swindon. Stalling on a new Swindon contract now, anything in it I wonder?(10)(3)Good onePlease take worries from 11000 hornets fan.Dunno he had a cracking last game of the season, unless we pay decent money not sure we will get anything better. If he could kick the ball in a straight line, be mroe decisive and come out and claim at corners he would be premier standard

Ferguson has a limited transfer kitty and While hes got evra he wont spend half that kitty on baines when they need to add quality to other areas, fact. Dont believe that poor excuse of a newspaper the mirror.(19)(5)Apparently his main oncern is a CB, the club has been linked with re-signing Gerard Pique (unlikely I know as he is doing well at Barca)Evra has Benin under performing for a couple of years know, he needs someone to push him for the first team spotBarcelona have enquirer about evra, I believe real Madrid have enquirer about either Rooney, real would consider a part ex for khedira, want to pair rooney back with ronaldo and also rvp who united would be interested in selling rooney for 100million or Hernandez who united want 30 million for. Berbatov on his way back to spurs if they don't sort adebayor out.

it appears to be one football division now featuring southampton, charlton, notts county, rotherham, and crawley buying ll the players leaving all the other clubs without players so goodnight(12)(4)Jealous? just sayinAnd leicester, and reading etc.West Ham & Norwich too.It's a rumour siteCrawley have very surprisingly and worringly for Crawley supporters not brought any players in yet since O'Driscoll's arrival. No pre-season fixtures announced either. Hmmmmm.Compared to other clubs the number of saints rumours is relatively lowAlso with Shearer not staying at Crawley because of money and Rotherham now saying Grabban is staying where he is after he couldn't agree terms, you have to wonder if the bubble has burst at Crawley.Lets not forget you can have only 25 man squadsLooking at their site, they currently have 12 players. I don't think the 25 man squad issue is in danger there.Saints 25 Man Squad Can Only be:
1. Davis
2. Richardson
3. Fonte
4. Hooiveld
5. Martin
6. Fox
7. Harding
8. De Ridder
9. Do Prado
10. Chaplow
11. Cork
12. Hammond
13. Schniederlin
14. Lallana
15. Lee
16. Sharp
17. Lambert
18. Butterfield

That leaves 7 places that need to be filled, and it is not guaranteed that saints will sign everybody that they want- thats when there are possibilities. Don't get jealous now. Its call for a reason, its a rumour siteLuke Shaw, Calum Chambers, James Ward-Prowse and Jack Stephens have been promoted to the 1st team squad I believe. We will be signing a keeper to replace Bart. Harding I'm sure will be sold and I have a feeling Guly might go too. That leaves 4 excluding the new keeper coming in. Striker, Centre back, right winger and either a centre mid/left wing of left back. I'd go for a solid experienced centre mid. We'll need that this season.U18s dont count towards the squad, so it will be 7 spaces free, and it is unlikely that Cortese will want to replace more then 7 people, so for that reason I do believe that Do Prado and Harding will both stay. Though I can see Lee Barnard being sold with all of the speculation over us buying a new striker along with Dan Seabourne, is unlikely to be able to step up sufficiently.Good striker but not for chamionship.Home grown players under 21 do not count towards the 25 man squad25 man squad only applies to over 21 year olds so the list is cor
rectAll the players under 21 dont need to be registered :)Under 21's don't have to be included in the 25 man squad.

Aston Villa to name Steve Bruce as manager next week as he is free agent and will not cost Randy Lerner to buy out of contract, reliable source(15)(16)I have heard the same rumour tonight from a member of the back room staff, can't believe Lerner would go for another ex blues manager but it looks like it might happenVilla have learnt there lesson.
Still a ton of better managers wanting the job!
AVFCforLife! (or until Stephen Wonky Nose Bruce gets the job!)Lambert is going to be next villa boss,he has already had talks 2 days ago and randy was impressedNo Lambert hasn't had talks with Villa, Norwich wouldn't let Lambert leave without a fight.

Anyway Lambert said last night, hes NEVER ask to leave & is VERY happy at Norwich.All wrong, No Rafa Benitez is an absalout stick on! Get your money on now!!!No approach from villa for lambert. source: SSN & NCFC. so any talks would be tapping up. stop making up crap.

One year deal with the option of one year extension in Herefords favour.
Despite his name this man is rapid!(6)(15)Hi yeovil fan here, are you people genuinely believing that this guy is good?!I'm also a Yeovil fan and as such I am very surprised that Slowe didn't get snapped up by the likes of Man Utd. He will dominate every match at Hereford!Hope you not got a season ticket at hereford as you wont see slowe play football evan if he is on the pitchSo why didnt he get into the yeovil team ? and they release him on a free ? cant be that goodI cant believe he will be a brilliant player in the future if he had a good future gary johnson would of snapped him up we can get alot of players who will be twice as good as slowe anywayThis is all rubbish ive seen him in training he's not that good probably can only just compete at league two standard may struggleDoesent look anything like a footballer!!!League Two standard? Are you sure? From what I've heard, Sunday morning football standard is nearer the mark.You no this is sarcasmThere's no sarcasm involved here at all! ...... ahem ........

Cardiff have agreed a deal with West Ham regarding Peter Whittinngham. A fee of £4m will be enough to see the midfielder leave. Cardiff will look to invest this money in to all areas of the squad.

Adam Le Fondre, Reading, £1.5m
Darren Ambrose, Crystal Palace, £1.5m
Danny Gabbidon, free transfer
Michael Kightly, free transfer
Jason Shackell, Derby, £2m(5)(43)Reading will not sell Le's like talking to a brick wall with some of you Cardiff fans. Thus rumour has appeared and been dismissed about 10 times already.You can have ambrose he's a passenger in most gamesKightly has signed a new 3 year deal.....You're not getting Shackell.Why would we let Kightly who is contracted leave on a free, especially as everyone knows Jarvis is leavingReading value Church, who is far, far, worse than Le Fondre at 2m. So if you think we would sell ALF (which we won't) for anything less than 3-4m (not that we'll be selling him at all) you can think on. And to think you Cardiff fans called us deluded.Why are Cardiff constantly posting about Alfie? Its never going to happen!As a Cardiff fan I'm fed up of seeing Le Fondre linked with us...I don't want him here and he is no where near worth 3 - 4 mill more like 1 - 2 mill.Shackell haha dont make me laugh, we're not selling him end of...How do you know what our values are. Church would be about 500k and ALF would be slightly more. We bought him for 350k a year ago and all he's proved is that he can't get in our team. 3-4mil is a joke.Really where does everyone get these ideas from, us selling our super sub who has got us the most goals over the season... not happening bud even if cardiff are looking we aint selling, plus alfie is growing as player here, start of season yeah but iffy but his form at end of the season, it was like watching an entirely different player, no way, gotta say though would be happy to take whittingham off your handsLooking like Cardiff have turned thier attention to Jay Rodriguez , 5.5m bid according to The Mirror and Wales Online?!?!?Le Fondre is our top goal scorer, he will make alot more appearances next season"All Alf's done is prove he can't get in our team" mad bro? He was our top scorer and scored important braces against Leeds and Southampton. But yeh he's done nothing you're right....moronThat adds up to 5m.How many starts did he make in the last 15 games? 1? Thank you. I really like ALF, should have been partnering Roberts but he didn't-fact. Just saying he's not worth 1mill let alone 3-4mill."Just saying he's not worth 1mill let alone 3-4mill"

In todays current market he's worth a lot more than one million, it doesn't matter how many games he's started recently he is top scorer for the champions of the championship.ALFs a top player! stupid comments about him not breaking into the team. Some players aren't meant to start every game. LOOK AT THE IMPACT HES MADE FROM THE BENCH!Alf can't get in our team? Have you not noticed that he's used as a sub because he is effective as a sub? Hunt an Roberts start because Hunt wins the flicks and Roberts scores the goals or brings it down. ALF doesnt work like Roberts or Hunt who are perfect for each other. ALF is quick, clever and intuitive - just what you need to save a game. Also what you're saying is, if we bought someone from the Championship for say, 200k, and next season he scored 20 goals, you'd only value him higher? Crazy. I know what our values our through my source...Look, I didn't want to upset anyone but the people on here are a bit silly. ALF isn't worth 3-4mill, end of. Church certainly isn't worth 2million. Lets not give our player silly price tags, they shouldn't have price tags. That's why your "source" is make believe.

Norwich Keeper Declan Rudd will sign for Peterborough United(14)(19)Not likely as Norwich would need him as a backup keeper along with steerLoan deal with recall is very likely. Both him and Steer need games so i would like this to happen for development purposes. Ideally we would sign an older backup and get them both out on loan with recall clauses and see them progress.Dont think we need an older keeper, both are decent enough for Ruddy's backup!

Paul green to sign 2year deal at Ipswich by the weekend,Ipswich also hoping Joel ward will pick them over palace by the weekend.

Daryl murphy looks close to completing a return to portman road on another season long lone deal,making the payer a free agent at the end of next season.

Ipswich also close to agreeing fee with Watford for Scott loach.

Players out- Ellington back to bristol rovers
Peters to yeovil(14)(19)Wishful thinking (coming from an Ipswich fan). Although Murphy looks like he might be signing a permanent deal soon with us.Why would we sell our first choice keeper to a divisional rival without any other established keeper? absolutly ridiculous. you re not getting loach so deal with itYou would only get Loach if we got Kuszczak or another top goalie on the cheap.

Also some of the rumoured prices are a bit too low. Don't expect to get the 2m+ clauses we rejected a season or two ago but still.You've got to be kidding me another stupid ipswich rumour!
to be fair loach is a ipswich fan but with watford releasing there back up goal keeper accordind to ipswich were playing iwelumo in goal next season. Maybe if ipswich offered 1.5m then watford would be interested and would hope get the cheltenham keep in he looks solid!Apparently rooney ia prepared to take a pay cut to move to ipswich. Dream on love scotty aint going anywhereIs'nt Loach contract up in the summer?Ipswich will not persue Loach now Guzan has become avaiable on a free.Loachs contract is up next summer not this summerNope, he still has one year methinksWatford wont ditch Loach until they have signed a replacement as only back up is about 19. Tamas Kuzeck (spelt wrong I know) top Watford target wont decide where he will sign until after the Euros. So dream on tractor boys unless you are gonna pay over the odds.That's alright we will have him for free next yeah then simplePay 6 million and you can have loach hes rubbish any way.


22 May 2012 21:46:04
Doncaster favourites to sign Tom Taiwo as he's rejected a new contract offer at Carlisle, also Doncaster interested in signing Damien Reeves, Paul Huntington, Grant McCann, Izale McLeod and also William Grigg!(5)(6)Paul Huntingdin has signed for PrestonHuntington to pne confirmed so thats one off your list
DevonGreenMccan is going to bristol city, mcleod is going to yeovil and huntington has gone to pne, so unluckyWhy is McCann going to Bristol City? Because you said he is?Like mcleod would pick yeovil over rovers yeovil play like a sunday league teamIf u want tom it will cost due to age regardless if he has no contract


22 May 2012 21:41:12
Southampton speedster Steve De Ridder currently having a medical at Wolves as part of a "Money plus player deal" which will see Matt Jarvis arrive at St Mary's.(10)(25)We wont let steve go. Defo not for jarvisMakes sense. Hope so.I'd rather Puncheon went as part exchange but Jarvis and Lallana out wide would be nice!Doubt this is true but would love to see Jarvis at Southampton.
If De Ridder was part of deal it I think the cash part would be in the region of 3/4 million.Wolves have said "only cash up front and 10m"So de ridder is worth 6/7 million lucky if you get 1 mil for him try 9.5mil and de ridder then may get a look in but haha no chance.De Ridder is the only pace we have in the team at the moment, cant see us getting rid of him when we need pace in hte prem.12 premiership clubs have enquired about Jarvis. With that in mind i think he is more likely to choose an established premiership club. I'm not trying to predict where saints finish either.De Ridder is faster, more dynamic, better crosses & full of confidence.....How is he any less of a player than Jarvis? Not saying either player is worth ten mill because thats just daft...but muppet wolves fans pluming for that kind of money are deluded.Bull. De Ridder is on holiday atm, check his twitter account.De ridders crosses are useless, don't even try saying they are good. good with everything else.Love all the bitter wolves fans with their 'haha no chance' championship bound and championship is where you will stay for years to come. Jarvis will go for 4-5m Im surprised he hasnt already handed in a transfer requestIm a huge southampton fan, but seriously some people are so deluded. How is Steve worth 6/7 million?? He couldnt even get in our team last year and now we are in the premiership he has not got a hope in hell!!
Would love to see Jarvis up the st marys, would be a great signing with Llanna on the other side + chaplow can then play more central. I hope this little rumour becomes a reality :-)"but muppet wolves fans pluming for that kind of money are deluded." - We're not deluded at all mate, the club wants 10 million and has reiterated numerous times now we don't have to sell therefore 10 million is a realistic fee we can expect, especially when jarvis would be content to stay if the right offer doesnt come along! anyone thinking jarvis will leave for 4/5 million is deluded and you sir who wrote that is probably amongst themI don't think Jarvis will end up at Saints...They are going to be a risk next year. He's got options with established teams.Wolves may not have to sell and of course no relegated club wants to lose its best players. But that is largely irrelevant. He won't want to play in the championship and if a player wants away from a relegated club he'll go, they always do. He won't be at milieux come August end of.
Price wise 10mill is ludicrous. I suspect wolves are resigned to losing him and starting the bidding high. He'll go for between 5-7 mill. Personally I hope we don't spend that much. If we are going tomake one big money signing I'd spend on a top notch centre back. We could go abroad for a winger and pay half what Jarvis is worth. Decent player though wouldn't be upset to see him at st.marys.Jarvis 10m, Fletcher 9m, Doyle 4m etc...etc.. how the hell did wolves finish bottom this season with this amount of talent on their books .... heheheheI find it incredible that people refer to the newly promoted teams as 'a risk'. Promoted teams didn't do too badly last season did they? It's complacency that kills you.

22 May 2012 21:34:38
Southampton winger Adam Lallana who excelled in this years championship is rumoured to be holding talks in the North-east with Newcastle and Sunderland fighting for his signature.(13)(32)Adam bleeds red & white, he isnt going anywhere for anyone. he is getting married next year to a girl from southamton, his best mate plays for totton and his family live in southampton. so i really don't see him going anywhereHe won't leave. ^^Can never say never but i would be surprised if he did leave. He could of left last year when we were in the championship instead he opted to sign a new contract with us and now we are in the Prem i am sure he will stay for at least this season. Then depending on how we do he will make a decision on his future. My opinion only of course.Not likely 3 years left on his contractUnrealistic saints fans who feel that they can now compete with Newcastle and Sunderland, your club although well of financially is just not yet upto a good enough standard to attract these players that you all have written will be buying. I Personally don't get the hype over Lallana he seems to just cut inside continuesly and he will be found out in the Premier league.Not a chance. You clearly gave nothing better to do.Tosh, on twitter he has often referred to the fact he is a "saint4life"Absolute tosh.
Do you know anything about football? Adam Lallana could easily have gone to a prem club 2 years ago when we were in league 1 but he didn´t want to leave as he loves Southampton and it is where he has been since he was 7.
I expect him to follow in the steps of Le Tisser and be at the club untill he retires.
Anyway, why would he leave now that we are in the prem!? Common sense.Absolute garbage. Grow up!!Not happening...Lallana is dedicated to the Saints cause unlike previous academy stars!Lol ...Sunderland. The only place there is the football stadium. Not really an attractive move for Adam.If he has a good start to life in the Prem (which I'm sure he will) i could see the likes of the top 6 come sniffing around for him in January, until then he'll definately be a saints player...and if he did go I doubt he'd go to Sunderland as they are a mediocre team and also Newcastle wont want him as he isnt french speaking!Don't you young Skates have to go to bed earlier than this?
Get a life and stop being so silly.Adam Lallana is going nowhere. He would fail a medical due to an ongoing heart problem at any other premiership club, hence the reason why nobody from the premier league has tapped him up before.
Adam is by far our best player and will be fantastic for the saints and no others this season!Unlikely seeing as adam lallana is still in Las Vegas with Richard Chaplow, Jack Cork and Danny Fox, also he had the chance to join man united last year and turned it downHaa haa haa , i cant wait til next season , we are much better than everyone thinks ;)He's not even that good anyways, McClean and Larsson are twice as goodTo the above comment about him not being that good, i am guessing you are Saints season ticket holder, if you are not then you cant make a comment like that. I am a season ticket holder and i can tell you Lallana is a class act and one of few current Saints players that will shine in the prem. I dont no if he is better then McClean or Larsson because i dont watch them week in week out and it would be wrong to compare them. All i can say is he might just surprise a few next season.If you think McLean and Larsson are twice as good as Lallana then either you know nothing about football or have never seen him play. Or both!Saints fans get off your high horse, lallana maybe a good championship player but he is not proven in the Pl. and the comment about Larsson not being that good, he is the best free kick taker in the premier leagueTo the other fan, your not a SAFC season ticket holder so pipe down, McClean is not as good, well you must be on something,Adam's fiance would never let him leave the south coast anyway, regardless of all the other reasons keeping him at Southampton. As for how good he'll be in the Prem, we'll just have to wait and see!No Sunderland fan get off your high horse. Lallana wasn't a good Championship player. He was the best player in that league last year. He has represented England U21's and has been tracked by top prem teams ever since he broke into our first team. He is a tricky, skilful traditional out and out wide player. McLean and Larsson aren't like this. Totally different sorts of players. Dumb comparison!
Sunderland are a good club with a top manager and I think they'll do well next season but if Adam goes it'll be to a bigger club than Sunderland. Not knocking you, that's just a fact.To the post above, I understand what you are saying, but you must remember SAFC is a bigger club than SouthamptonI have a lot of time for Sunderland as a club. Top fans, the Tyne Wear derby is one of my favourites as a neutral, always electric!
However I don't quite agree that Sunderland are a bigger club than Saints. We have had a difficult few years on and off the pitch to say the very least but remember we were in the top flight for in excess of two decades and for a fair part of that time Sunderland were nowhere. It goes in cycles.
The north east is a hotbed for foot all fans and talent and have a super fanbase, top manager and good stadium. But Saints are really on the up, we have a promising young squad which we'll hopefully significantly add to in the coming weeks. We have a great fanbase as there are only two clubs in hampshire and no big clubs in the south west so we draw support from there. We are looking to increase capacity to 55,000, we have a good, ambitious young manager, one of the best academy's in the country. We have a crop coming through now who are being likened to Bale, Walcott, Chamberlain. We also have very, very wealthy owners. I am not getting carried away by this as some fans are. There has never been a suggestion that we are going to try and do a Chelsea or man city rather a slow build based on a vision of developing great young talent and not just flogging them on as we have done in the past.
I'm not naive I know we are in for a tough season the key is consolidation over the next 2 or 3 seasons. I think we will finish bottom half this season and Sunderland top half but we are coming from very different places. All said there are a lot of similarities between the two , including the kit!!
All in all I think they are probably on a par. I maintain that if Lallana goes and Christ I pray he doesn't, it will be to a top 6 club.

Just recived a email from a friend of mine who lives in Nottingham and he saw Steve Howard walking into the Notts county reception with Notts county owner Ray Trew Hopefully signing a contract to join the Mighty Magpies.(13)(4)Not true, the owner is abroadThis is true I spoke to Steve today at my younger brothers football cup final for his team tow law .

Bumped into old school friend Ross Wilson who confirmed that Watford have agreed to sign James Collins from Shrewsbury on 01st July with a compensation package agreed in the region of £100K plus add ons

Welcome on board James.(13)(7)If hes signed why isn't it official yet?Don't think that's trueReally?Not true! he may end up at Watford but this is a load of old cobblers. Collins is still contemplating a contract offer from Shrewsbury and the compensation package will be more than 100k.Wouldn't suprise me if the fee could rise to 150k as this seem to be the mist common compensation agreed for young players. But the shrewsbury fans who are saying 450k are kidding themselves hes a free agent from league 2!Someones telling a lie there. Why would this guy know and 100k is nowhere nearNot true.Ross wilson is head of watfords transfer operations so he would know, but 100k is a bit cheap. still some way to go in this one i thinkWhere would you bump into him? Ross Wilson is from Scotland.Why would he disclose private information with you? bore off with your lies.He would really tell you.Why would Shrewsbury accept 100k compensation? If Watford have offered that then we would ask for 500k to get more money from the tribunal.

Kagisho Dikgacoi has handed in his transfer request at Crystal Palace after a falling out with the management. It is believed that he was told that unless he showed a willingness to improve that he would not play a major role next season. Palace have accepted his request and are willing to cut their losses asking for only half the £600k they paid for him last summer.

With very little interest in the player in England it is thought that Kagisho is hoping to go back to his homeland of South Africa to continue his career.(4)(5)

On loan wolves striker Jake cassidy is not expected to go back on loan to Tranmere or any other team for that matter as Wolves are likely to sell Steven Fletcher and MAYBE Kevin Doyle. Wolves bosses impressed by cassidy after he fired tranmere up theleague one table shortly after arriving.(10)(2)Im sure cassidy will start a few matchesThe new wolves boss dosnt even know half of the team let alone himHow do you no I'm sure he's had match reports from people who was on loan he nos his squad by now or who they areCracking youngster, bags of potential and knows where the goal isGood luck to Cassidy a good goal scorer who could do well once some of his rough edges are smoothed out.

Southampton to sign Karl Henry from Wolves.(10)(19)Please god no he's terrible!Rumours need some texture, at least put the effort in. Hes one of the dirtiest players, doesn't exactly fit in with the adkins mentality does it?And thats why you know nothing about football...He isn't one of the dirtiest players. He can't be compared to the like of Barton who has no brain...Don't read into the tabloids loving the Money teams and criticising the real football teams. Its easy to protect the hand that feeds you!

Forget Chelsea - European team of the year is clearly Montpellier, winners of the French league, yet they've never paid more than 2m euros for a player. Will the team stay together for a Champions League campaign? Expect bigger clubs to make moves for their star players, especially their magnificent central defender and captain Yanga-Mbiwa... an Arsenal target if ever there was one.(19)(3)

Millwall have made a bid for Wycombe Wanderers striker Stuart Beavon.

Beavon, who swept the board at the club's recent player of the season awards, scored 25 goals in all competitions for the Chairboys this term.

A number of clubs have been keeping tabs on Beavon and now they are ready to make a move for his services this summer.

Wycombe face a major battle to keep hold of Beavon following their relegation from League One with clubs higher up the football pyramid chasing his signature.

Charlton, Preston and Sheffield United have all expressed an interest in Beavon, but Millwall are hoping to steal a march on their rivals by tabling an offer for the player.

Millwall boss Kenny Jackett is keen to add to his attacking options next season and he is hoping to win the race for Beavon.(8)(4)Be quick kenny!coylLook this goalscoringrecord on wikipedia! Not good so I hope you get himHe looked a good player to me last year, his off the ball movement causing problems for defences.I don't think 171 goals from 374 matches is too bad to be honest, statistcally he has scored in 45% of the matches he has playedI don't think 171 goals from 374 matches is too bad to be honest, statistcally he has scored in 45% of the matches he has played
You mean awful as 107 of those goals were for Didcot town in non league football.I mean in the football league esp for Wycombe he scored like 7 goals in two seasons for them and now scored 20 or something he'll be a flop so I hope wall sign him25 goals in league 1 no mean feat and a partnership with Keogh a proven scorer 15 goals each in the championship ....suits me sirCAFC Fan, I think he is a good player , therefore I hope Millwall dont get him :)

Saints won't pay no more than 4m tho . He will be a good squad player !Yeah, Leon Osman is a far better player than Matt Le Tissier. No doubt about it.Shockingly bad rumour!! Osman is easily 31, not worth investing in, plus he has been one of everton's best players this season, and is a blue through and through, he has a low wage which is no trouble for moyes, possibly the last name that should be linked away from goodison! Try again!This is ridiculous

Portsmouth to offer Owen Hargreaves a football lifeline offering him a pay as you play deal. Hargreaves is likely to take them up on the offer as he is unlikely to have any other offers due to his constant injurie problems.(8)(22)No money so no players.Very funnyPay as you play-that would be novel for Pompey.
No pay, so no play!More likely to be a no pay as you play same as rest of squadEven at Pay as you play rates, the wage would be too high. Also, the manager is looking to build a young side based on the Academy players and fortunately, Pompey have half a dozen very good ones!Good ones, you mean the same ones that finished bottom of the Academy league this season. Pompey if you do manage to field a team next season there is a good chance you will get relagated again, you are deluded you lot.HARGREAVES has got an injury problem not a mental problem ! 'Pompey my aspidistra'The players in question were largely training with the first team and did not play many games for the Academy side you numpty!

Modric and Bale to Man U in the summer Carrick and Berbatov will go the other way as part of the deal. reliable source(25)(28)Plus 30 millionCarrick won't leave Man U and Bale won't leave Tottenham. Unlikely Berbatov would return to Tottenham but who knows.Where do people get these ridiculous ideas from.First of all i dont no if there is any truth in this rumour but to say Bale wont leave Spurs i think is wishful thinking mate. I would be very surprised if he didn't after they failed to get in the Champions league. He is a top player mate and a bit like Giggs he wont get many chances proforming at a national level ie.. world cups, euro. So he will want to play in Champions league regularly. Like i said dont no if him to united is true but what a replacement for giggs he will be.Another deluded mancSwaps don't happen.

22 May 2012 17:14:14
My sources at Pride Park have confirmed that interest has been shown in all 5 players transfer listed by Nigel Clough.

Steve Davies: Bolton, Cardiff, Ipswich £750,000. Derby want £1m plus Davies wants to head north excluding Ipswich.

Chris Maguire: Motherwell, Dundee United, £500,000

James Bailey: Doncaster, Blackpool, Burnley, £500,000
Doncaster are the only team so far to actually make a bid. Both Blackpool and Burnley are weighing up their choices. Obviously Bailey would like to stay in the championship.

Lee Croft: MK Dons, St Johnstone £0

Miles Addison: Bournemouth, Barnsley, Notts County £150,000(9)(10)We (Dundee United) haven't paid a transfer fee for many years. We certainly wouldn't fork out half a million pounds for Chris Maguire. I'd say any other SPL team bar Celtic would be in the same position.Suggest you gen up on your geography ... Ipswich is further north than Cardiff .. so that leaves only Bolton for Steve Davies then ...Ive heard cash + maguire for johnny russell.So Davies is going to Bolton then as Cardiff ain't exactly north of Derby.Dundee utd have not got that money to spend would be surprised if motherwell have that cash to spend possibly maguire and cash for russelMiles Addison to Ipswich - Jewell has history with this lad and rates him!Have u seen addison play 150k give overI heard that Burnley have had a 450k bid accepted.Bailey is more likely to be closer to a million in all fairness. Derby paid Crewe half a million, and he has since proved himself as a half decent championship midfielder, with outstanding passing ability. Addison and Croft are likely to leave on a free, and Davies does not necessarily want to move north. He wants to leave for 'family reasons' - could be anything really, possibly just a willingness to get away from the area due to marital split, who knows?Got to say ppl who think rovers will be paying 500,000 for players what are you smoking back to the free transfers i think! And thats from a rovers fan


22 May 2012 17:07:54
Aloys Bertrand Nong and Junior Olle Olle both on their way to the valley. Total cost around 1 million. Nong only joined RAEC Mons in January but had a fall out with the boss after being frustrated by lack of playing time. Looks very promising!

Zaha - Palace
Davies - Birmingham
Ki - Celtic
Andy King - Leicester
Ince - Blackpool
Snodgrass - Leeds
Naughton - Spurs
Redmond - Birmingham
K Bennett - Doncaster
Bridcutt - Brighton
G Hooper - Celtic

and others rumoured we deffo won't get them all but a few are very close and should sign.(16)(31)Tee hee Naaaaaarwich really do have an unusually high opinion of themselvesInce has already said hes staying at blackpoolWhat are they going to buy them with? Lambert has already said he has no money to spend..unless holt is on his way to Sunderland as rumoured.Had a good season - now planning to scrap the lot and sign a complete new squad. Seems a tad unlikely.I could almost suggest its just someone putting a list together of everyone else's best playersWhen did ANYONE within the club say there will be no money to spend??Lambert said it in April. The club were 40 million in debt and on the verge of administration last year and promotion to the premiership saved them. If Norwich buy one of those players I'll be surprised,unless holt is sold.So which of these in your opinion are very close to signing then?Kyle Bennett wont get a game and he said hes stayingActually when we went up to premier were approx. 20 mill in Debt and have since reduced it further so where 40 mil has come from I don't know, I'd guess lambert has about as much as lady year to spend on new players.You do know that norwich story on being on the brink of administration was made up be news of the world.Hooper just started contract talksYou have got some of the elements of the story correct. The full story goes like this.

After relegation to league 1 Norwich were close to Admin. We brought in McNally, Bowkett and subsequently Lambert. Lambert sorted out the team, walked the league and got promoted. McNally and Bowkett set about improving our fortunes off the pitch, restructed the debt (around 24mil) and set out a repayment plan to pay it off in approx 5-7 years depending on success on the pitch.

We then spent the most in the Championship after QPR, won auto promotion to the premier league and with it a 90 million minimum cash bonus (1 season in the prem and parachute payments should we be relegated after a single season.)

We then spent circa 16-18 mil (Summer and Jan combined) if you dont believe have a look at the players signed and for how much, add it up. A couple are estimates due to undisclosed fees (Howson, Pilkington, Bennett) but it works out to the previous figure. Off the pitch we have now reduced our external debt (banks and other creditors not directly working within the club) to 10 million. We secured another season in the premier league, and with it another 40+ million in TV revenue, higher ticket prices and sponsorship.

We now arrive at present day, Lambert and McNally have both said they have a similar pot to play with as last season 16-18 mil (maybe 20 as they said similar not exactly the same.) While not as much as the big boys 20 million spent wisely on young, developing players could take us again to the next level under Lamberts astute leadership. We are also scheduled to pay off the final 10 million of external debt by the end of the season.

Next summer - plans are afoot, should we secure our premier league status again, to expand the stadium via redevelopment of the Geoffrey Watling City Stand to approx 35k. But as i said, only if we survive relegation again. With no debt we will be able to borrow again to do the redevelopment, with a proven track record over the previous seasons of being able to pay off debt quickly. If we get relegated then the development will be put on hold, but with no external debt and high parachute payments we will be in place to swiftly return to the premier league.

We really are in a happy place right now, regardless of the outcome of Holt and Lamberts situations. If you dont believe any of this post then please do some research, it is all out there, free of charge in plain sight.Norwich successfully sued News of the world for the article over administration. Norwich have money to spend. how did we bring in Vaughan, Morison, R Bennett, E Bennet, Howson and Johnson? some people really are quite thick.Add to that Pilkington and De LaetWe spent 15m last summerThe financial post above is spot on. We really are on the up at the moment.

Its the best post i've seen on this site for a long time!Some people talk rubbish: Norwich have no money to spend? Norwich are a small club?
Norwich may not be a huge club but is recognised in football, Norwich do have money to spend and Lambert never said he has no money to spend. He reffered to the fact that we do not have as much as the big clubs, but I think 18m for a first premier league season isnt a bad amount to spend nor for the second season; a few decent players for that amount of a budget. Just look at the players Norwich have brought in: Howson; only played a few games and bosses the midfield; Pilkington and Bennett, quality players for only a couple of million. As Norwich have proven; its not how much you have, its how you use it.Hope we keep Bennett
Alex oatesYour not getting Holden he said he was staying even before the stoke game, and would anyone seriously buy CYL or Holden after they have been injured for a combined total of 30 months?

Denis Suarez Man City to Plymouth Loan(7)(18)4 million for a plymouth player, why make this utter rubbish up.Why would reading spend 4 million on a player from plymouth?!Why would Reading sign anyone from Plymouth fullstop? Garbage side lucky not to be relegated out of the football leagueGarbage club? Lucky not to be relegated? We've been in play-off form since February, get your facts right before posting that crapYes probably crap, but luke young is one of the best young players in league 2. He has just signed a new deal as wellLuke young too good for poxy reading. If he leaves it will be to a decent club, dont know about 4mill though.Maybe 40k if your luckyWhy would Luke Young sign for a 2 bit club like Reading. Who will go down next season when he is good enough to play for a better team.Royals fan, dads a pilgrim, both good clubs no point saying well go down next season or plymouth are carp, both decent sides :) secondly, luke young promising prospect but more time needed, could prob just about make jump to championship this season but not prem ready, though definitely will be a prem player in one form or another in 3 years or so!3 leagues above you?You are in the premiership Reading because of a sugar daddy. Reading were in the lower leagues not too long ago.

Izale McLeod is to set to sign for Yeovil Town.(10)(10)He was seen in the Town today!!No he was not, he is going to Pompey done deal.Where abouts in town?I can third that,i saw him tooFor Pompey to sign players you will require moneyYeah I saw him in the town centre yesterday. OK, he may well have simply been there for no signing related reason at all but who'd want to just 'visit' Yeovil!?

Crawley are close to singing released Brentford duo Marcus Bean and Karleigh Osborne. Both players have played with a number of Crawley players at Brentford.(7)(7)What a strange song!


22 May 2012 15:34:42
Brendan Moloney set to go on a season long loan to Notts County. This due to him falling behind Kieron Freeman after his impressive loan at the same club. The move will also be with a view to permanant signing.(6)(5)I can also confirm this to be the case. Although it may not be a loan and just a signing for Notts County. Forest's financial worries forcing their hand.Saw him play at County a couple of years ago. He`s a class act but we have already got Julian Kelly.

Jarvis has turned down stoke because harry R wants him to replace bale at spurs.(6)(31)Nice on mateLololol good jokeSpurs are accually after him its reported in the express and starPeople complain about this site being full of lies and stupid comments yet when an actual fact and legit rumour is posted they laugh and click disagree. People need to stop being pathetic on here. Spurs are in fact looking at Jarvis IF bale leaves.I agree with the last posting, why would Jarvis move to a club before he knows he has a regular first team spot, he's not going to move to Harry and be G.Bales reserve/understudy. He'd be better being the main man, he's too good to be anyones bitch!Harry always pulls this trick, tells every player under the sun that he wants them at Spurs just to keep his options open, after all it'd take a brave (or foolish) player to sign for the likes of Stoke while the carrot of Spurs is dangling. It's exactley how Stoke got Begovic though, supposedly wanted by Spurs and annoyed when he found someone else going for a medical. It'd be good to get Jarvis at Stoke for a full pre-season but if he have to wait until deadline day for a cheaper fee so be it.Bale is a thoroughbred Jarvis is a donkey,
no comparison.Can't be a donkey if so many teams are after him.Jarvis hasn't turned down Stoke at all. He's actually having talks early next week so nice try


22 May 2012 15:27:24
Southampton look set to sign Josh McEachran from Chelsea for a fee of 3 million. He is said to be a close fried of Ex Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork(12)(19)Utter rubbish. mceachran is birghtest talent at the moment and for his age and potential 3 million should be laughed at.How many players are you going to sign.Lol, yea, because only look at those you will sign, no back up or alternative.Southampton fans are deluded, relegation fodder next season as not a top draw for quality players.Some people need to chill, it's called a RUMOUR site for a reason. Jeeze.I agree with the above post. Not every rumour comes true,thats why they're called rumours, not the truth.


22 May 2012 15:23:48
MK Dons and Brentford are fighting it out for the signature of Alistair Slowe.(8)(5)Apparently he is in contention for worst player of all time with his time at Northampton Town and Yeovil Town

Swansea ins:
Sigurdsson 7.5
Guidetti loan
Vela 4.0
Emnes 3.5
Toornstra 0.5
Kum free
Mariappa 2.0
Cornell back from loan

Lita 750k
Moore 500k
Dobbie 750k
Routledge 750k
Bodde not renewed
Gower free
Bessone free
Monk 250k
Tate 250k
Moreira free(7)(20)Not disputing that you will sign gylfi but the price is totally wrong. we sold him for about 7.5m 2 years ago and your saying he hasn't increased in value after half a season tearing up the prem?About right but id keep routledge as a number 2 just in caseSwansea paid more than that for routledge so y would they let him go for 750k?I would take routledge for 750k at everton any day of the week I think he's class even though everyone knows dyer is betterRoutledge won't go, he's set up most of our goals this season...Never sell Monk or Tate, 2 of our class heros, keep them for another season!I dont think we need 3 more strikers mate, just emnes and guidetti but the outs seem about right, we could get 1 million for dobbie and routledge bu this is close enoughRoutledge is too good a player to sit on the bench would love yo keep him as back up... but unless we lose sinclair or dyer not going to get much game timeYou won't get Mariappa for 2m. Better than that and has a lot of interest.You need 2 quality players for each of the 3 striking positions: Graham/Guidetti, Vela/Dyer, Emnes/Sinclair... maybe sell Dyer instead of Routledge if you can get more money for him - Dyer works hard and can look good one-on-one but too often his finishing and decision making in the final third are poor... Monk & Tate are not premier league footballers, no room for sentiment... and I believe Mariappa is in the last year of his contract, so 2m sounds perfectly reasonable.Routledge may not score the goals but we need some depth to the squad. Plus he sets up so many chances we can't let him go.

Emnes - Why the fuss? Is he really THAT good that we chase again this season?

Tate and Monk - Nowhere near prem quality so get what we can.


22 May 2012 14:52:48
Norwich are looking to sign Matt Jarvis from wolves and yakubu from blackburn(17)(17)Matt Jarvis yes, Yakubu no10mill thanksAgreed with comment above3 above i mean

Leicester have had a bid of 4m accepted for Robert snodgrass!(15)(30)If snody leaves its for a prem club.And the price for best drivel of the day goes to.........this post.
Snodgrass would never sign for small time LeicesterIts true bid bin accepted hes being offered 25k a weekWakey wakey Leicester would hold NO appeal to Snodgrass - he is looking to the Premiership for is next move.Some Leicester fans embarrass our club with posting drivel.he would not join us in same league as leeds,heard warnock on radio and apart from the 8mill price tag he said they will deffinately keep him till January.


22 May 2012 14:44:19
Norwich to sign Dani Pacheco after Durys testimonial and also approach Lennon after the game about the possible signing of Gary Hooper and possible Emilio Izzaguire(14)(16)If you want those 2 look to pay about 18mill, izzy is a legend in the making and prob would go for 20-30 mill in epl in a few years but he loves Celtic. would think you have a better chance of getting hooper then izzy.18 million?
Dream on. Sure, Hooper and Izaguirre would be expensive, but not THAT expensive.Where do these
people come up with their numbers, both players are valued at 4M each on transfer market website so where the hell does someone come up with 18M and before anyone spouts on about Celtic turning down 6M for Hooper from Southampton, its what you read in the papers and they always inflate the numbers so its looks bigger and better, suspect both players would be sold for sums somewhere close to their current market values.Current market value? whats that the epl one where they spend 35mill on a sticker who cant score? where as Hooper goes for 2 mill and scores 50 goals in 2 season, and only 1 player rvp scores more then hooper this year...29 goals =4mill no way. what is your problem is that you think spl is a shiat league so it has shiat players. Well like it or not Celtic wont be taken small money no more, Hooper is worth 7mill no doubt and izzy(as man u has been sniffing,maybe paper talks) should be 10 mill.

do you agree andy carrol is worth 35mill? or even 15mill as he is listed in trasnfermarket? for scorng 4 gaols, or do you pay because of his hight? the guy is good in the air but whats more important that or goals.

get off your high horse that we are the best league in the world so no player outside of it is good for it. wait till the euros come around when you have carroll in not scoring and you have Hoopers 29 goals out of the team. hope some one gets injuried so he could have a chance to show you all up. {Ed025's Note - fair point mate...we got jelavic for buttons, there are a lot of good players in the SPL..Im sorry but I think I could score 50 goals in the Scottish League....


22 May 2012 14:34:48
Eddie mitchell stated that scott malone isnt leaving for millwall in a swap deal for josh mcqouid and 750k rumoured amount from the sun............ this deal imo could easilly happen(3)(6)It;s happening

Joel ward is signing for Leeds Tom, I have just spoken with Warnocks best friend up north,the deal stalled last week over the fee or rather kennys refusal to spend 450k,paddy kenny a Definate as Paul Robinson moving back to London after Blackburn relegation,clayton has agreed to join burnley subject to terms,from the horses mouth!(11)(14)Hope you are right about clayton coming to burnley !I really hope your right about clayton! UTCJoel Ward is signing for Ipswich Town! FACTClayton to Burnley is a backward step, cannot see it happening.I think agreeing the 3mill transfer fee for clayton would have to be agreed and burnley can not afford he will be sold to Leicester.Wish we would get 3M NW already stated he will accept 400-450k for him as that is what he has to got spend to replace him in NW owns words I can get a better player than Clayton for 450k which is what I expect to receive when he is sold

But I will take the 3M!Neil Warnock ha already said Clayton will e leaving for a fee of around half a million


22 May 2012 14:06:03
In terms of stuff to do with Reading, this is what I know/Have been told:
- Interest and fee agreed for Mariappa. Only way this won't happen is if the contract negotiations go sour or he fails a medical.
- Enquiry and talks with Carlos Sanchez. No medical as of yet, player is interested in joining.
- Mullins and Conolly will not be joining.
- There was never any interest in Bjorn Sigurdarsson. No bid was submitted.
- Ian Harte has nearly finalised a new contract.
- Enquired to Liverpool about Joe Cole, paying 50% of his wages. No decision will be made until a new manager is appointed.

- Defoe. This will depend on other signings and so how much money is left, his performances in the Euros, and interest from other clubs.
- Rhodes. Unsure on this but we've been scouting him.
- Hoilett. Unlikely but again depends on interest from other clubs. As we have signed McCleary this seems less likely.
- N'Doye. Still interested in him, on the shortlist of strikers.

- Sigurdsson, Doyle, Fletcher, Jarvis, Whittingham, Maxi Rodriguez, Butterfield.

No updates for you guys on the TSI deal yet, sorry.(14)(15)Matthew connolly will sign
MrRfcShame about Connelly if that's true. We can forget about Defoe and Cole. Wages would be off the scale for Reading(even 50% in the case of Cole)Must of got the doyle 1 from ssnAgree with all!I don't think there will be any chance of reading receiving Defoe
Since there has been intrest from liverpool in 3 players Bent, Defoe and Hoillet
Defoe is a possibility bent maybe and hoilet almost defenitly will not be going to liverpool since so many others want him such as Man U Spurs and others

Gus Poyet to become new West Brom
manager with Jim Magilton replacing
him as the new Brighton and Hove
Albion manager, Jim shares the same
footballing philosophy as Gus.(8)(16)No way Gus will go to West Brom and even if he did why would Brighton want Jim Magilton?What, have someone sent off each game or try and kick the opponents into submission?I don't think soNah not a chanceIf magilton gets the job be prepared for a relegation battle.Gus Poyet has stated many times he would like to manage in the Prem with a can't be discribed itopp club or Brighton (that rules WBA because they can't be discribed as a top club even by a Baggie)From a brighton supporter, if gus got offered the west brom job he would seriously consider taking it. it isnt a step sideways and puts him in the prem where he wants to bePoyet having talks with Aston Villa's Randy Lerner on Friday.To whoever made this childish 'so called' rumour - go and continue your giggles with your childish friends and READ THE NEWS (if you can) before trying to be clever. Gus has already said he is not interested.He isn't having talks with lerner, why post such bullsht??!If anyone has been tempted to place a bet on Poyet being anywhere other than Brighton next season, you've lost your money.

Millwall have held talks with Bournemouth left back Scott Malone. A deal which could see Josh McQuoid going the other way.

Millwall have also made an enquiry for MK Dons skipper and left back Dean Lewington.(5)(3)Take him, would prefer to have mcqouid backDean Lewington would be a very good signing for WALL! IMO COYLYou can have malone but please keep mcquoidMalone in January signed a 3 and a half year deal and has shown no intentions of leaving AFCB and is just a pointless rumour, plus Mcquoid wouldnt go down a league anyway as he is a championship playerThis deals looking more likely with Mcquoid going back to bournemouth.


22 May 2012 13:53:54
Man City ready to offer A. Johnson and Adebayor swap for Gareth Bale.

Carlos Tevez will be joinig AC Milan in exchange for Brazilian Centre back Thiago Silva, forget about Ibrahimovic.

Eden Hazard will join for 32m from Lille and Edinson Cavani will join after the Olympics from Napoli for around 30m.

T. Silva
Aguero(16)(21)You keep telling yourself this mate ......
Edinson Cavani would cost closer to 50million and thiago silva would cost alot more than tevez's valueHahah, and how do you know all this exactly? ;)Your dreaming, Bale isnt a left back and Milan have already come out and said Silva is a no go to leaving!I'm sure AC Milan need Tevez as well as Ibrahimovic, Pato and RobinhoAbsolutely not happening. Bale is 100 percent not leaving Spurs during this window, but probably will next year. As for that City "lineup" for next season. Its so unbalanced. Just one CDM in Toure, and even he attacks more than he defends. Quit playing Football Manager and carry on flipping burges or whatever you do to pass the time in your hovel.^Bale can easily play left back.

But yeh, I can tell why the author of this post isn't the manager of a club, or has anything to do with football. It would get torn apart defensively.

If City sign Hazard and/or Cavani I am sorry but they will have to sell some of their attacking players, they are too top heavy.In relation to the swap deal, surely you meant to type "Man City ready to offer A.Johnson, Adebayor AND 15 MILLION CASH" Because Bale is at least worth 30 - 40 million, and with Johnson being valued at around 8m and Adebayor somewhere between 10 - 12m that only comes to around 20m...Financial fair play my apse if this is correct


22 May 2012 13:56:47
Spurs news

Adebayor it seems will have his wages subsidised by Man City as they realise that no clubs will take some of their players on the current salaries. Has turned into a nonsense but of Man City's own doing. Same happened with Robinho and no-one will touch Bridge. They're also having trouble with Adam Johnson as interested clubs just can't afford his wages.

Jan Vetonghen and Robert Huth could be a new pairing next season as both players are keen to come.

Jermaine Defoe will join Stoke City and may be joined by Jermaine Jenas

Demba Ba looks a very likely arrival after Harry missed out on Remy in January(15)(15)Why would Demba Ba move to a smaller club?Would love defoe and jenas at Stoke, but can't see this happening. Also I'd hate to see Huth leave, I'd rather keep Huth and miss out on Defoe and Jenas. (Just personal opinion)

Possibly for a 4 million joint fee.(12)(14)But we dont need a keeper we signed henderson and green is stayingWhy would they sign 2 left backsGordon is a free agent4m for them 4 is that what you mean? coz if thats the case no chance, gordon is a free, richardson is worth between 5-7m, McCartney is worth 1-1.5m and elmo is at least 2m, so you talking more 10m for 3 of themUntil green puts pen to paper it means nothing

this is crazy!
genuine rumour - ramsey to swansea, looking to replace potential sigurdsson loss
and we're not even going to talk about it?! come on Ed! {Ed001's Note - come on ed? What the hell are you on about? What the hell has it to do with us?}(6)(13)Absolutely NO chance!!Ramsey played for Cardiff. NO chance of him going to Swansea.Lmao someone needs to stop taking them magic pills, the ramsey that was born in cardiff, played for cardiff, all his family lives in cardiff????? what a joke!!!!!!Ramseys st haha, besides we have almost signed siggy soTbh I think that Ramsey would be a great signing for any club, but can't see him leaving a team which has champions league football next season although I think if the price was right he would come, because it is a lot less distance from home and he could play with other Welsh players, although then again we are going to have sigurdsson next season anyway so it don't matter


22 May 2012 13:42:42
David Noble has lefted Exeter City and Matt Oakley will join the Grecians on a 1 year player coach deal.

portsmouth to sign klovis kamdjo, liam o'brien and danny webber, after exits: jason pearce,ricardo rocha,jamie ashdown,benjani and stephen henderson(8)(8)Who will sign whilst they do not know if their wages will be paid??

They can't claim benefits, you know?

Until the club is secure it is unlikely anyone will sign-and the Chanrai offer could be unacceptable to the FA, so don't pin too much on that.Love it how every one jumps on the pompey postsThese signings are quite possible but nothing is likely to happen for another month or so, with the excepion of a few more sales of course!If Chanrai's bid is rejected by the league then The Trust bid would win through so more than happy if Chanrai is deemed unfit.............for once the league guys will have got it right! Who am I kidding, they will screw up again and let another one asset strip Pompey!

They are going down.Who would want to play for pne? or westley as a matter of fact?

This has just been announced on Radio

Looks like Joel Ward has made his mind up. Hillsborough his surprise destination, and he is at Middlewood Road today undergoing a medical.

Leeds had apparently done the deal to sign Ward, but were unable to come up with the £380k transfer fee, asking instead payment to be deferred until the start of next season - sounds like they have cash flow issues.

Pompey administrators insisted on an up front payment, and Ward will now join the Owls.(8)(14)Wednesday fan here i can tell you ward not coming as we are not willing to pay what pompey want so we have pulled the plug on the dealAnnounced on what radio station, radio ga ga !!.Wednesday have pulled out anyway


22 May 2012 12:43:36
Walsall forward, Manny Ledesma, is set to sign a 2 year deal. This is on Mackens wages and Jarvis' wages together, meaning he is on roughly £2,000 a week, without add ons (goal scoring bonus etc)

He has however, got a relegation release clause in his contract, meaning if Walsall are to go down he will automatically be released.(3)(1)

Ive heard from a source, very close to Mark Hughes that Qpr are after and very close to signing Micah Richards, Adam Johnson, Shay Given, Dembele, Defoe and Hoilett .All will be announced by tuesday.(1)(38)Of course they will. I doubt any of that list would go there.I don't believe that for one secondMicah richards?! the guy who just won a title at city? dream on wannabe. QPHAAnd why not ? half of them not regular startersIts tuesday - no announcementDefoe is an outside possibility as he is desperate for a move - but even though he hasn't had many games, I think he could do better than QPR.

As to the rest - only if hell freezes over and hughes gets to be trustworthy.That's what smoking crack does to youThis is clearly a list of players u want to see sign. Can't be anything to do with reality as none if them would sign for relegation fodder in a million years!As a QPR fan I can tell you what this person is saying is a pile of horse sh..Cant see us getting any of these....Micah Richards, Adam Johnson, Shay Given, Dembele, Defoe and Hoilett, but you never know, Joey Barton was at Newcastle when he signed for us, and thats a bigger club than, Blackburn Fulham and Johnson wants a move as does Defoe, so as much as i doubt any of these guys signing for us, stranger things have happened.Hoilett could move, and so could Shay Given. Adam Johnson could go out on loan and so could defoe.Richards isn't even a possibility. Johnson could happen but only on a loan deal. Shay Given could happen as he and Mark Hughes have a good past and Villa look unstable. Dembele never. Defoe perhaps, probably the only realistic target and Hoilett will be attracting bigger and better clubs. Johnson on loan, Given and Defoe maybe.Adam Johnson will only move on loan, and most likely to a lower league team. Mancini will not sell him to any rivals, because he knows he is talent

Neil Warnock seems to have had an initial approach for Jon Stead rebuffed. Stead is said to be interested in joining Warnocks new regime at Leeds and favours a switch back to his home county of Yorkshire. Reports indicate Leeds will have to meet a seven figure valuation set by Bristol City.(14)(13)Stead has said he is more than happy down bristol,and if we r going to offer a 7 figure sum then they will accept it without doubt and be laughing all the way to the bankHes worth nowhere near 7 figures. 500k more reasonable but hes crap anyway.Stead says no way is he leaving as he feels settled in bristol and leeds would be a backward stepIm a city fan and stead loves bristol so he wouldn't wanna leave but leeds wouldn't be a backwards stepLeeds would be a backward step from Bristol City? remember that probably the worst Leeds team in recent history claimed a 3-0 win at Ashton Gate this season....He didn't say it would be a backward step, he said it WOULDNT be. And congratulations u beat a struggling team who had 9 men


22 May 2012 11:19:41
Words spoken by Robert Snodgrass yesterday on LUTV seem to indicate his patience is running out which will alert the likes of Cardiff and Norwich.

More to this than meets the eye!!Cardiff got no chance!

Leicesters Andy King is a surprise target for Fulham and Aston Villa. Leicester want around 1.5m for their previous prized asset as he is currently out of the form which drew interest at 3m.(6)(7)Rubbish, even if he had a poor season, he has been one of our top players in the previous 3 why would we let him go at such a low priceHe is the most overrated player in the championship. If we can get rid and get some money for him as well, it would be great business.

looks like it's a two horse race between palace and ipswich to sign joel ward, after ward rejected leeds and admitted that blackpool and sheffield wednesday were too far away.(8)(18)Leeds deal still favourite according to press this morningH. What planet are you on?! He's agreed to join Leeds in principle, where he's always WANTED to move, and that will be confirmed tomorrow. The only competition was Wednesday, a proper club on the same scale, and I hear they just pulled out of a deal. Should be tied up by Warnock tomorrow, along with Halford.
wallyWard has signed for Blackpool after meeting his new team mates at Wembley on Saturday.How can he go to leeds when warnock is on holiday and leeds cant even afford him?! i will laugh at you when he dont sign for leeds it might not be ipswich but it definetly aint leedsOh very sorry...we aren't a proper club evidently, even though we've won numerous trophies during the years. Your arrogance is astounding. It's clubs and supporters like you and yours that get right on my wick. I quite like Sheffield weds but can't bear you lot.He's going to Leeds or BrightonLeeds can definitely afford to pay for himwhat planet you on?NW on holiday AFTER 25th so he is still here

NW has stated so many times when is going on hols!

Unless you av booked him in somewhere!Joel Ward will be playing at Blackpool next seasonHey ipswich fans! Im a leeds fan and ican tell you guys now theres serious problems at elland rd with our chairman not giving nw money. Leeds were supposed to have wrapped wards deal up last week but nw didnt get the money he was promised. So just thought ide let you know your the favourites to snap him up now. Also you can offer more wages. JakeHey leeds fans just to let u know ipswich have no money at all bosmans for us

24-year-old Kamara is currently with Dulwich Hamlet, having only arrived in English football with Margate in 2010.

After an excellent campaign with Dulwich, a host of league clubs are now ready to offer him a route into professional football.

Sky Sports understands that Stevenage, Crawley, Northampton and Bournemouth are all keen on landing him.

And Kamara's team-mate Omarr Lawson also looks on course for the Football League.

He spent time on trial at Portsmouth and, more recently, Watford - who remain keen on him.

However, Charlton, Nottingham Forest, Brentford and also Stevenage are also keen on the teenage forward.(5)(2)You forgot to copy and paste the first line of the story.This sounds like an agent sending out the feelers. Nice try. The Crawley one is nonsense btw.Hope notOld news where have u beenBrentford should go for richard barrilohet from fulhamOr daruis vassel who was realesed by lesiter city

Stoke City;

Jarvis, Deal done with club just
waiting for the player
Owen, free transfer pay as you play
Defoe, Tottenham are playing hardball
and are asking for huth but stoke
are determined to keep him and he
wants to stay expect him to sign a new contract.
Pulis is also looking at a number of
CM and has been scouting abroad
but if he can fiind a prem CM that
would be preferred.

Ricardo Fuller, will look at offers
Mama Sidibe, Released
Diao, Released
Kenwyne Jones, thats if someone will
take him
Tonge, championship
Soares, Championship
Davis, whoever wants

Some youth players will go on loan;
Culliver, championship
lund and moult league 1 or
championship(11)(12)Huth looks likely to leave- a Dutch centre half is on Stoke's wanted list.

Defoe was hours away from joining on loan in Jan.

Jarvis will join in June

Owen depends on how talks go next week.

Plenty of interest in Jones but Stoke want the right price. There is a clause in his contract which he hasn't reached which will trigger another payment to Sunderland so Stoke will cash in.

Stoke want Gardner from SunderlandStoke wont be listening to offers for him as they are releasing him, mama will not go yet, TP is standing by him following his injurys and has pledged commitment to do so.

Doubt huth will go, dispite being hot property, him and Shawcross have formed a formidable parnership.Explain why Huth in nearly 12 months hasn't signed a new contract despite having one on the table since August? Pulis has promised that Sidibe will get a good pay looked afterSidibe is crocked and will never play again, TP and Coates have vowed to stand by him so will probably offer him a coaching role, ambassador position or such like.Sidibe been give another one year contract

Grant Holt has been persuaded to stay at Norwich and has siged a 3 year deal making him the highest paid player at the club - The deciding factor was that Paul Lambert has given his assurances that he will be staying for at least the next season and that he has a decent transfer kitty to add to the squad.(13)(19)And you got this information from where exactly...C'mon! Why do people keep making things up? Stupid stupid stupid...... I'd love Lambo and Holty to stay, but where the .... does this come from??


22 May 2012 09:36:02

He is also probably one of the biggest cheats i have seen for a long time.If hes a cheat then hes the perfect replacement for drog.heard hes off to finish his career in hollywood


22 May 2012 08:49:50
eric huseklepp ius closes to sealing the deal with championship club watford. After Birmingham rejecting to sign him permantly, his departure from portsmouth was immenent. Portsmouth and watford have agreed a fee of 300,000 after fighting of competition from ipswich and leeds.(10)(6)Decent player, very fair price, I suppose with our good league finish we can definitely compete with teams like Ipswich and Leeds. He would probably start in most games so sounds good.Where did you here this?So wish this was true cant see it happening, source?Im not sure we will sell him for 300,000 we bought him for 1.5mil. I know we cant be picky but it will have to be higherI thinCk he is a striker. Could possibly replace iwelumo as watford are trying to get rid of him after a poor season.Huseklepp? What planet are you on?! He's quality and if that's the fee that he's worth then Leeds or Ipswich will definately snap him up. Watford are a mess, you shouldn't have to release four youth players before their contracts are up. That's some serious issue there^ The players we released were not any good, and almost every team has financial constraints. How you can say we're a mess compared to Leeds is beyond me, and Ipswich aren't particularly any more attractive.

What I will say is that 300k seems too cheap.When exactly did we release 4 youth team players before their contracts were up? Check your facts before you post.Before you say Watford are a mess you need to have a long hard look at your own team. That's where the real mess is and also get your facts right next timeI've seen this name in relation to watford around a few rumours websties , it was in paper gossip section, i will try and find source to back this up. Being a watford fan i hope this is true as iv'e watched huseklepp seem quite pacey which is what watford look lie they could do withLeeds aren't in a financial mess at all. Yes Bates is tight but we are operating at a profit at the moment and our small debts are now managable. The only problem Leeds will have when trying to finish off deals is the wages that Bates is willing to pay as he still believes we can sign players and pay them league 1 wages of around 5000 pw when infact we should be paying over 10000We didn't even release 4 youth players! we released our backup goalkeeper who wasn't tht great nd we hav a better backup in our acadamy, one defender who we signed from non league last seaon but wasn't good enough, a youth player who at 20 had failed to make an appearance, and a winger who started well but now even bradford wouldn't play him. we havn't even released them. we just told them they wouldn't be renewed. just because sky sports had a ridiculous story about us not being able to afford them doesn't mean its true. all teams release youth players. are you saying arsenal are a mess because released 6 youht players yesterday?!Will certainly take more than 300k to buy him, even with Pompey's difficulties, would think 500k min..........and a great deal at that price too!^ I dunno about Leeds but 5k p/w is not league 1 wages. Except for the most experienced who are closer to 10k p/w that's our budget. But yes for youngish up and coming players like Clayton you need to offer a bit or there's no loyalty.300000 your having a laughHe was bought for over 1.5m hes not going for 300000We bought Ellington for 4m but we didn't get any money back for him, in the state Portsmouth are in, you would be best off selling him for anything you can.

Other Clubs intrested are Swindon, Peterborough, Gillingham, Huddersfield and Doncaster(8)(11)He won't go to Bradford, Huddersfield or Doncaster as he is settled in his home and is is not willing to travel long distances.
Gillingham and Swindon are possible destinations as is Northampton
SOURCE - I spoke to his wife in their coffee shop in MKEven though Peterborough choose not to sign him a year ago, because he couldn't cut it in the ChampionshipWell I've heard that PP is very interested because he was at charlton when Mcleod was thereThink he might sign for swindon di canio did speak about him a few times.. be the physical presence he wants as well

Southend to sign Kuffour after being released from Gillingham(6)(6)Southend are skint. They cannot afford Kuffour, dream another one up.I wishKuffour's not good enough for Southend there are plenty of better players out there that are cheaper.Southend aren't skint anymore get your facts right!How are we skint? that was 2 years agoUr still skint look at ur ground its awfullToo many southend hatersHe is good enough for usBrady, Sturrock and Martin put all their eggs in one basket this season on promotion. They failed. You are skint. Liquidated by Xmas, Simples! Kuffour would never join you, far too good.Okay then if we are not liquidated by Xmas you can come on this site and on the supporters website and say how stupid and deluded you are. Deal?We are not skint you obviously know nothingOur ground is awful? who do you support? no doubt a team with a characterless stadium like colchesterWait until you find out how many players and staff have not been paid for April and May and then tell me you're not skint. Failing to get promotion = administration.

Also they want Matt Jarvis but Wolves want around £8 mil which fulham are willing to pay but only if deals for Hernandez n Assaidi don't happen. Also Danny Simpson is a major target at RB. Narsingh has annoyed fulham with his divering so is likely to join Ajax but Nacir Chadli is very much still in the pic along with Defoe.(6)(16)Jarvis is valued at ten million by Wolves , up the ante kidda.I doubt anyone is in talks with Rhodes at the moment, seen as he has still got a match to play.Fulham's bid for Jordan Rhodes has infact already been accepted and he will be a Fulham player by the end of the week. 3.5m rising to 6m.

KONY 2014Who does he play for never heard of himLeeds don't have one million to spend, we havn't even got 400k for joel ward.Derby county, he was offered a new two year deal but turned it down for family deals.

In the past three seasons he's had a fractured skull, fractured eye socket and hamstring injuries just to name a few!!

QPR to make use of uncertainty at Villa & Wigan by making bids for Given & Moses. It's is also believed that Danny Simpson, Del Piero, Rob Green, Junior Hoilett & Matt Jarvis are all on Rangers radar.(7)(30)Absolutely no chance. You are just naming all West Ham targetsWell del piero is retiredDel you really are struggling. I heard Patrick kluivert is free too? Signed him while ya at it aswell...What clubs are not looking at them players lol stiff compation from bigger and better clubs..and personal who wants to play infront of 18k fans at a home game?No jarvis to southampton, simpson to stay at the geordies all others possibilities !West ham? They'll be lucky to get joe cole this summer. Del Piero would be brilliant, sells alot of jerseys.All the westham targets. dont make laugh. all teams in this position are after the same targets. from a mutual perspective i belive qpr have a better chance of getting their signatures over westham because of the team their building and the plans theyve made.What does playin infront of bigger crowds at home count for? all they care about is the money they will be being paid. plus why would bigger and better clubs go after players that are just average?QPR will just outbid WestHam for any targets they may have in common, simple as that. we have money, you dont.De piero goin arsenal or qprDe piero ain't retired. he'll be a free agentWhy would Moses go to QPR? sideways step


22 May 2012 03:48:54
Despite being on the verge of announcing a deal to control the Keepmoat Stadium (which is currently being run by Doncaster Council's Stadium Management Company), Doncaster Rovers financial situation is weaker than most think and without tight financial management the club could be facing the threat of administration in the new season.(12)(7)What a ridiculous rumour, the club's in a fine financial situation.A very ill informed and irresponsible comment. The club is certainly run on a tight budget, but this has always been a policy since the return to the Football League and it will continue to be run in this manner whilst John Ryan has any involvement in the club.

West Ham to bid £6.5m for Chung -Yong Lee to further add to the former Bolton players already at the hammers.

Big Sam sees him as a key signing and believes the lure of a bigger Club like West Ham can see a deal completed soon.(20)(18)Bigger club. LOLOn their way back to the brink of administrationLMAO. Who do west hame think they areWestham is by far a bigger club than bolton, bolton no history."West ham is by far a bigger club than bolton, bolton no history."

Every club has history, its irrelevant what west ham have done in the past, try living in the present.Well in the present west ham are in the PL league and bolton in the championship so looks like west ham are bigger
arsenal fan here btwWest ham is bigger club period. You sound delusional. It is not just about history.. The club itself has a lot bigger value than bolton and a lot more supporters as well.That's why west ham lost half there fan base when they went down and still dont like big Sam even though it's him that has promoted them single handedlyBolton sre bigger club fact. we may be in the championship now but west have have been the twice in as many years fact. plus we always take 6 points off you fact. COYWMSo last year we where the bigger club going off Arsenals logic?

After having a bid of around £500,000 accepted over the weekend the signing of Dean Moxey from Crystal Palace to Sheffield Wednesday is likely to go through in the next 48 hours. It is believed that Moxey has almost doubled his wage in the move up north.

Palace are also extremely close to confirming the signing of Tunchev and Dumbuya, both on frees. Palace were hoping to win the race for Portsmouths Joel Ward but the increased interest has reportedly put the asking price from £300k to almost £500k and Palace see Dumbuya as a better alternative.(10)(11)The fee for Ward has not changed as it has been pre agreed with the Administrators. There are other cost issues related to the deal including payments due to Ward. Similar to the deal that saw Pearce move to Leeds, where Leeds paid deferred wages and agents fees on top of the feeMakes sense, shame about Ward who is probably the better playerThe Moxey to sheffield wednesday bit is rubbish, the rest is true apart from freedman saying dumbuya is no longer a target.Fact, MOXEY is STAYING
Ward will sign on Wednesday
Dumbuya is no longer a target as Dougir confirmed at the fans forum
Tuchev will sign on WednesdayMoxey leaving Palace - I really can not see it.
We should still try and get Dumbuya as he did well when on loan

Gary Hooper has no indicated that he is thinking about his future over the next week.
The feeling is with rangers in dire trouble, there is a lack of competition in the SPL. southampton are on high alert(15)(16)If he has any ambition he has to head to EPL. Saints would be good for him. Ambitious, on the up, he'd start a lot. If he wants to just win endless cups against league 1 standard opposition and play in the prelims of the CL then we don't want a player with such a lack of drive.This talk of Saints "being on high alert" is a little silly. Saints professionalism is second to none and they will have been in regular contact with Hoopers agent and Celtic since January.
I believe it will only be down to valuation now and whether Hooper feels Saints are right for him-can't see Saints trying for someone if their attitude is not 100%.Be strange considering he has insisted for so long that he is happy in the SPL and the prospect of CL football?

I'm a Saints fan, so not trying to stir anything, in my opinion we have stated our price, they have said no and stated their asking price. We can't agree. Hooper is happy in Celtic and not complaining. We should all just move on without arguments and club size (sorry not particularly pertinent to the initial post, but always worth emphasising I'm not supportive of continual stirring BS, so unless there is a source then let it die). {Ed007's Note -Prospect of CL Football!?

What...............both qualifying legs!? ;)So what Celtic have to play 2 qualifiers big deal, they have a good chance since they will not come up against any top clubs really. and when Celtic came up against the top club and winners atletico m and juventis they held thier own and really should have advanced in the hardest group in europa. think all your eyes will open when they are in the CL and making some noise. Yous dish out shiat to Celtic even though your club is small, you will be no where near what Celtic is even with the millions you get from the english leagues.^^
Celtic isnt a big team, man utd,chelsea, madrid, arsenal, barca,milan and soo on r big clubs. Celtic will never make noise in cl not with the teams above listed in there. Group stage if lucky!Look Celtic lot. Saints are not a small club. They are a medium size club who always punch above our weight, decent fanbase, good stadium, brilliant academy, billionaire owners. Small clubs are what you play every other week with one man and his dog in a shack.
Celtic are a big club in SPL nowhere else, insignificant on the euro stage, living off successes of about 30 or 40 years ago, only play in the CL because Scotland only has 2 clubs and one of them is bankrupt.
The tit for tat is pointless. It comes down to this. If Hooper has serious ambitions to represent England he has to move south. He won't improve as a player playing against dross like Kilmarnock and Aberdeen each week. Even at a lower end or mid table EPL club he is up against top players nearly each and every week. So it's down to his own ambitions. That simple really!Any player that goes to a team outside the top 6 in the epl must me the least ambitious players out these players will never win anything and their biggest achievement is to pick up three points now and then inbetween the occasional thrashing sky tv cash runs all the clubs not the supporters the esp is nothing more than a glorified playstation game {Ed025's Note - make that top 7..Sound a bit jealous of us being in the big league Celtic? You'd love a bit of it wouldn't you? You need it a whole lot more than it needs you though, plus join the EPL and say goodbye to CL football and any trophies. Oh the dilemma!! I suspect you'll settle for your tinpot cups and telling everyone what a massive club you are for another 50 yearszzzzzzzzYa we would like to join the epl just to get some respect and show you lot that we would be neat the top in the position of the europa or CL the money we would get would only make Celtic even stronger.
and what about your club? are they winning trophies or even coming not good player in spl? well it seems to me that everton is enjoying there strivker lightin it up and where did he come from? and why is it all epl try and get spl players? because they are not good?
and this whole ambition thing, would you go to an epl team just to sit on the bench and maybe get 2-5 games a season, or play reg on the team and play against better players in CL then in epl?hhhmmm, the ones that are not turned by money and say no to epl has more ambition then most, for how do you playing no matter who is your against, talent is talent.
and Celtic is a big club because it is well known and loved around the world and is amongst the top 30 clubs in the world.^^
1. The EPL fans are not disrespecting Celtic. They are just bored of hearing you talk about being a big club when this is based on nothing other than you winning the European cup 40 odd years ago.
2. You would not finish near the top of the EPL. Yes you would get more money to Invest but you are light years behind the Manchester clubs, Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea. There is barely a single player on your books who would make their squads. If you spent wisely and had a great season you would be in the mix with Toon, Liverpool, Everton, Sunderland. So fighting for 6th to 10th.
3. Nobody has talked about saints winning trophies or being a big club or bigger than Celtic. There is genuine talk of one of your players joining us. That is a fact. Don't be so touchy, makes you sound like your threatened by lil old saints
4. EPL are not always taking the SPL players because they are great. Good SPL players move south because it is a great, competitive league packed with talent. Great players from all over the globe come to the EPL. As for Jelavic. Yeah he's a good striker who moved to the EPL to advance his career? What's your point?
5. You talk of Hooper being sat on the bench?! So your suggesting one of your best players wouldn't be good enough to start at sides in the EPL?! Wow way to make a case for the strength of Celtic's squad!
6. Celtic in the top 30 clubs in the world? Maybe. Seeing as there are 7 or 8 EPL clubs in that group, it kinds of blows a hole in your argument that you'd compete in the EPL. Do you think when the CL draw is made the Milan's and Barca's and Man U's are worried about being grouped with Celtic? Your just an awkward side for them to negotiate before the tournament really gets started. Big club in Scotland, in Europe? Just also rans, sorry. The fanbase thing is a myth too. All Irish people support Celtic? Never met a single one. They all support Utd and Liverpool.Celtic are not a big club? thats lies, they are one of the biggest clubs in the world and if you put celtic fans and barca fans in the same stadium your guarenteed celic fans will make more noise. the spl is really poor, but why would any player want to play with southampton? yous will never win a trophy and wont get european football. celtic have a young promising team and if not this year then next year the will reach the group stages in the champions league. and any decent footballer would rather play against the best teams in the world than finish in the bottom half of the premier league^^
Oh dear. Celtic are a big club in comparison to Dundee and St Johnstone. Compared to Man U, Chelsea, Liverpool, Milan, Juve, Barca, Madrid, Bayern etc etc. it's relative. What are the criteria for a big club? Finance, European history both past and recent, fanbase, commercial success. Roll these all together and your miles behind the teams named above and many others. In Asia, Africa, far east and other places worldwide nobody gives a st about Celtic?! They watch the EPL and Spanish league and support those teams. The global audience follows the CL too and as Celtic don't ever progress past the first set of groups then why would they be appealing to a global audience.
Celtic fans sound as if they are stuck in the 70's. The football world has moved on at speed but whilst you've been stuck in your little SPL fishbowl it's whizzed past you. You whine about EPL being the money league? Well this is jealousy, nothing else. The EPL is an exciting, competitive league packed with homegrown and world talent that is watched by millions and millions all over the globe. The SPL is a crappy little league that nobody watches and the sides in it get weaker and weaker each year. Funny how you never complain about the money generated by Spanish and italian clubs though!
Also please stop talking about Celtic and Europe. You play in the early stages of it and then get ko'd, similar to a plucky non league side in the FA cup! CL football isn't a draw for Celtic players as you don't really play in it properly. Europa league is Mickey mouse, spurs played their reserves in it. Enough said.
Why would anyone play for saints? Well a place in the most sought after league in the world and to play against world class players every week. Trophies? Don't make me laugh. Finishing bottom half is more worthy than any Mickey mouse cups to be won in Scotland. Probably worth more financially too. If Celtic are such a massive club and Southampton were so poor and if all these riches and trophies and wonderful fans and CL football(??) at Celtic is so much better than a place in the EPL would Hooper not just come out and say thanks for the interest but it's great here and I'm staying? He hasn't done that though has he? I'm not saying he'll sign, for the record I have a feeling he won't for whatever reason but the fact that it is still being discussed and it's still a possibility speaks volumes about any apparent gulf between these two clubs.Celtic have always been a big club, good stadium with big fan base but i think the gulf between the spl and epl has widened in recent years probaly due to the money u get in the epl which has made it the strongest in the world and the decline of the other teams in spl with financial prob etc.. i dont think it makes u a big club cause u outsing the other team thou lol we outsung the arsenal in the fa cup final handsdown even though we lost 1-0 but were not bigger, what southampton are at the mo is ambitious, thats why players wil want to join us. people dont realise were not the same club that spent 27 years in the topflight punching above our weight anymore with no money, we have wealthy owners now, were actualy the 5th or 6th richest club in the world now, but we havant even needed to spend that much yet compared to other teams in the chapionship for example, because the club is so well run under the leadership of cortese and adkins, instead weve been spendind money behind the scenes for the futre, upgrading our training facilitys spending 15 mil and getting ready to increase capacity to 55k, actualy we did win a trophy a few seasons back, ok it was the st johnsons cup a kinda league cup for div 1 but we took 50k supporters to that game and applied for another 20k tickets which wembley wouldnt let us have, even though cortese ofered to pay for extra stewards etc.. theres not many teams that could take 70k to that final, our support is big now we took 12k or more to sum away games last year, we also have a top academy along with arsenals its the best in england, producing the likes of bale, walcot and chamberlain in recent years and going back alan shearer and matt le tissier..oh and scott mcdonald remember him? he scored twice against u for motherwell and cost u the title to rangers, u then bought him and he scored 51 goals in 88 games, he couldnt get near our first team when were in the prem back then, i did see him play in a testimonal for us once and i thought he looked good but rupurt lowe our chairman then was playing along side him up front.. lol but with regards to the hooper deal i'd say it was 50-50 , one thing in our favour thou is that he knows adkins from Scunthorpe but see what happens i heard celtic have offered him a new contract, so there obviously trying to keep him..

Leeds to sign joel ward from pompey on wednesday on a four year contract for a fee in the region of 500k(21)(17)Just get on with it this has been dragged out for far to longSo he is signing for little Ipswich, dirty Leeds and massive owls?Truth is nobody knows until he signs for somebody on Wednesday (that is the date reported for a decision to be made). According to the press Leeds are still the most likely destination although Wednesday have 1 day to hijack that.He has already rejected Leeds, and Sheff Wed have pulled out. Realistically it is between Palace and Ipswich"little Ipswich, dirty Leeds and massive owls?"

Some people are so immatureSheff Wed have pulled out, and Palace look to have lost interest, Leeds wont or cant pay out 500'000, so we think its Ipswich now in the driving seat, expect Joel Ward's decision by WednesdayWard will sign for Palace trust meSo immature they are worth ignoring!Ward has all but signed for leeds...had a medical today... another cog in the warnock machine which is destined for the premireship...MOT!!He hasn't rejected anyone. If anyone is favourite at the moment it is Leeds due to Pearce and Ward being "two peas in a pod". But nobody knows where he will be going yet.

I wouldn't have thought he'd sign for a northern team - he didn't like travelling to London from Kent when he played for AFCW!

MrRfc(22)(3)That's good newsAccording to who? I am not sure I would feel comfortable with him in the premier leagueI cant say how i know but a few sources have confirmed this. I would hope hes only cover but he did look good before injury. lets hope Birmingham game was down to his injury
MrRfcI thought he looked OK in the games he played. Hardly any of the existing squad have PL experience eitherGetreading (local newspaper) said we are in talks and he is not in first team plans- so very likely he'll come to us for 1 -1.5 mil

21 May 2012 20:07:32
Reading are in talks with Carlos Sanchez and have approached Crystal Palace for Jonathan Parr. The TSI takeover will be completed when Reading officially become a Premier League team.
Reading look to have missed out on Bjrn Bergmann Sigurdarson after a first bid being rejected. Everton and Aston Villa have been watching him.

MrRfc(11)(8)Just like to add TSI deal is almost 100% so expect announcement soon

MrRfcPlease dont buy j.parrRather we go for Chris Gunter than Parr, solid right back that's also a threat going forward on counter attack. Also seems like him and jem get on great, chat fair bit on Twitter nd allAny other Reading fans starting to panic slightly about this TSI takeover? It's supposed to have been completed months ago and it continues to drag on.No way will reading get parr. But its nice to see so many of our players attracting premiership teamsParr is a fantastic but happy at palace and is going nowhereNot really. It's dragging on because the premier league are taking their sweet time. Plus Reading aren't an official premier league team until the AGM on June 1st so we might not hear anything till then.

I have no worries SJM knows what's best for Reading.Not really, TSI deal is done and dusted as far as it goes between Sir John and them its just the background check goign on and most likely as they have seen what has been done to pompey in recent years they are wanting to be extra careful about it all. dont think it'll take more than a couple more weeks :)No need to worry. The reason for the delay is because we were promoted. The Premier League now have to ratify the takeover as opposed to the FA.I was but i'm not now, my main concern was part of the consortium were turned down for a bid for Everton around 2004 but as they have a lot more financial clout, not to mention the clubs finances were alraedy up to scratch no concerns here.As stated above the only delay with takeover is premier league, but will go through soon. delay doesn't look to have prevented early transfer activity
MrRfcThe Everton deal falling through was nothing to do with Anton or Chris Samuelson. That was Kenwrights fault.Parr wouldnt be welcomed by us fans after his theatrics getting Roberts sent offYou MIGHT have to change your opinions of him soon, ive been told that there's interest and by another source we have approached Palace


21 May 2012 20:04:39
Grant Holt to join QPR for 4.5 million(11)(58)Dream on, this would never happen.Why ?Qpr won't get Holt but he will leaveHolt ? QPR should be aiming higher than that. Del Piero would be ideal as back up to Cisse in the goal scoring side of things.It's almost a done dealWhy won't he go to QPR?Because holt hates qprEven thou he put a transfer request deep down he DOESN'T want to leave, he's having talks with the club to see idf they can sort out 1or 2 little problem Holt has, i believe everything will be ok & Holt will stay at Norwich.Whats almost a done deal and forget holt we dont want holt KEEP HIM !Why would a mid-table team's top scorer hand in a transfer request to go to a smaller club, that should have been relegated ?We don't want him at rangers he 'd empty the canteen on his first dayDon't want him at QPRHolt is a fat lump. half his goals were flukes... I can't see anyone coming in for him, he should stay at Norwich. QPR are looking at better players & will finish above Norwich next season.

Bristol City are rumoured to be interested in signing Cheltenham Right back Sido Jombati after the portuguese player has had a marvellous first season in Gloucestershire, picking up the player of the year award. He is a attacking minded, quick and composed right back and would provide great competition to Rickie Foster.

Would cost around 200K(7)(9)City need a left back more than a right backIt's Pack we are after not the fella mentioned.
Del boy is up to something at BCFC so watch this guy, he's very, very good.Pack is a very good player. His free kick last week showed that.
However sido picked up player of the season and can also play left back. He is a very useful player and I for one wpuld welcome him with open arms to Ashton GateCTFC fan- if you get sido he will make your first team not at the start but as the season progresses you will see his skill. One of the best players i have seen playing for us and is still learning. Also a really nice guy! Packs not bad either

Arran Lee-Barrett - Burnley(1)(36)Why would Keith Andrews leave WBA where he's wanted and playing regular Premier League Football, for Ipswich Town?As an ipswich season ticket holder, i can tell everyone on here this whole squad of players are the worst i have seen yet. the club needs a clean out of all dead wood and as it looks like most of the business conducted this pre-season will be done in the free transfer and loan market, they could do a lot worse than looking at the SPL for the out of contract players.

Motherwell- Tim Clancy & Steve Jennings

Dundee United- Dusan Pernis, Paul Dixon, Scott Robertson, Danny Swanson, Garry Kenneth

Rangers- Sone Aluko

St Mirren- Nigel Hasselbaink & Jeroen TesselaarThe only players at Ipswich that would get into the Charlton team are Lee Martin, Jason Scotland (on a good day), Jimmy Bullard (maybe) and Ricky Wright. Unless its one of those players leave us out of the list of interested parties.Andrews was released by WBA so that shows he is wanted by them doesnt it......Let's correct shall we.

Poster one WBS have released Andrews so really wanted isn't he?

Poster 3 Ricky Wright who I assume is Richard Wright is a shadow of his former self and will to be honest not good enough for any pro team anymore so you kind of ruined your argument about how good Charlton are and being up with current events. As for the rumour it's rubbish"Poster 3 Ricky Wright who I assume is Richard Wright is a shadow of his former self and will to be honest not good enough for any pro team anymore so you kind of ruined your argument about how good Charlton are and being up with current events"

The point illustrates how poor Ipswich have become not how good Charlton are.I would cry if Charlton signed Richard Wright - awful keeper.Keith andrews is out of contract this summer so he is GOING TO IPSWICH TOWN

hearing manuel fernandes could be on his way back to Everton on a free.

aswell it looks like steven pienaar is trying to get a move back to everton after spurs fans called him a disgrace for congratulating chelsea

also hearing Howard is trying to persuade dempsey to join also.(4)(4)Be sooo happy if we get fernandes on a freebieHope this is true, but, could we also have donoven, PLEASE !Yep you can have him 5 million please ha ha

Ipswich Town are the frontrunners for the signature of out-of-contract Dundee United midfielder Scott Robertson, according to reports in Scotland. The 27-year-old is expected to leave Tannadice this summer with League One MK Dons and Brentford previously mentioned in connection with the twice-capped Scot.(1)(5)Yes, saw this on TWTD this morning as well, but you missed a further report that said no contact had been made.Know for a fact contact has been made. A little birdie told me!He is going to leeds or brightonBrentford have already held talks and things look promising, He knows Alan Kernaghan (Assistant Manager - Brentford) from their time together at Dundee before he joined Dundee United.Has now joined Ipswich on a 2 year dealAs an Ipswich fan I admit that things have gone downhill recently, however I can't see a player choosing to play for Brentford over Ipswich.He hasn't joined Ipswich on a 2 year deal you egg!

And I could see players signing for Brentford over Ipswich, Clayton Donaldson (Who is shocking) rejected Watford and Barnsley last year to sign for Brentford.
If the price is right and he gets a feeling about a club, then he will join, despite recieving offers from other clubs because Ipswich yes they are a bigger and better club no doubt.Ipswich are hardly a better team than brentford!Clayton donaldson isnt shocking!! what you on about?! haha!Ipswich are a club who spend money but get no where! therefore that doesnt make them a big club.

Southampton are said to be interested
in the following players:

Ben Foster - £5m
Paul Pogba - Season loan
Carlos Munoz - £1m(15)(2)Pogba is out of contract and leaving permanently to juventusPogba's joining juventusNo, Pogba isn't joining Juventus. Wait and see.The Pogba situation seems to be back and forth, one min hes staying the next hes leaving. And Foster WONT leave the midlands, hes already stated that he wont uproot his family!So pogba is going to choose southampton over juventus?Before every one starts screaming ang shouting did any one think that Pogba could join on loan from Juventus,Havent seen him play but alot of fuss has been made over him yet Man u still brought Scholes out of retirement before giving him a go!


21 May 2012 18:22:08
Real Madrid's Royston Drenthe will have a second loan spell in the Premier League this time with Fulham after a poor loan spell at Everton last season.(13)(21)Loan spell from where? He's a free agent after leaving Real Madrid!To clarify, it wasn't his loan spell that was poor, just his attitude. Virtually all Evertonians would tell you that, on his day, he could be the most exciting player on the field. It was just his habit of repeatedly turning up late (and purportedly worse for wear) to training and pre-match prep that let him down. Very talented but I for one wouldn't have him back at Goodison.Interesting player at his best, but Fulham have other serious targets as wingers/attacking midfielders as well as already having good mature players and young prospects in these positions. I don't think Drenthe is good enough to change that situation - particularly if he has attitude/discipline issues - not our style {Ed025's Note - as the everton ed...stay well clear, he is a loose cannon..


21 May 2012 18:19:16
Bristol Rovers monitoring the situation of Steve Howard closely, who it is thought would be willing to take the step down with the guarantee of first team football.(6)(12)Steve Howard has all but signed for Notts County after his release from Leicester.Why would he drop two divisions? I'm sure there's a number of League 1 clubs who'd happily snap him up.Hope we don't sign himHes in talks with notts county so doubt bristol rovers will win the race


21 May 2012 18:18:42
Nicky Maynard will re-sign for Bristol City for 1.2 Million plus add on's, will rise to 1.6 million,(9)(6)Would be very supprised if this happens!Hmm, so he leaves the no hopers and goes in search of Prem football, he then achieves Prem football and promptly returns to the no hopers, who, btw, couldn't afford him at that price - silly billyThis simply cant happen, dont want him back tbh not after the way he treated the fans and his performances on the pitch last season were dire to say the very least. he may get his premiership 'dream' but he wont be a first teamer at west ham thats for sure. whats this no-hopers anyway? we've been in the championship for 5 seasons with 3 top 10 finishes including a playoff final, annoys me when people who clearly dont have a clue about bristol city post rubbish!This will not happen. Especially not using them figures anyway!IF we wanted him back... We couldn't afford to buy him? We bought him for 2m+.... So why could we now not afford 1.2-1.6m?


21 May 2012 18:16:46
Swindon to sign izael mccloud after his release from barnet(17)(12)Definitely notPaolo will only sign players who work hard, he clearly doesn't fit the bill and we already have enough players sitting on their lazy arses collecting 10k a month for F all

21 May 2012 18:09:37
Wycombe in talks with Izale Mcleod following his release from Barnet. They are also interested in resigning Charlton CB Gary Doherty & free agent Scott McGliesh.(13)(5)Doherty was released by us so you can have him for free.Unfortunately Wycombe are currently under a transfer embargo as a result of not filing their accounts for last year. Also the ownership / control of the club is very much up in the air at present, so I'd think there's little chance of any transfers just yet.Does that mean Beavon will go?Millwall have but a bid in for him apparently, it's on sky sports news


21 May 2012 18:05:29

Liverpool forward Dani Pacheco is to be announced as a Norwich City player on Wednesday after the Adam Drury testimonial match. He is also playing in the match so Lambert can see how he would fit in with the current squad. This news means that Grant Holt has been persuaded to accept a new contract with the Norfolk club and put pen to paper on a new 3 year deal making him the highest paid player at the club.(19)(8)Deffo saw him at ColneyAt Colney to train for Tuesday, so that ^ is a lie. He may join but not definitely.So signing a forward has made grant holt (a forward) to stay at norwich!
does this not add up to any1 else.Sounds like a muppet storey to me ........Not really a forward... more of an attacking midHolt and Pacheco linked up fantasticly together the first time they played with each other and we won 6.0... holty scored a hat trick. after the game he expressed how much he enjoyed playing with him so i would not be surprised if he can't wait to play with him again.

Steven Gillespie - Charlton
Anthony Wordsworth - Blackpool

Colchester ins:

Amari Morgan-Smith - Luton
Ronan Murray - Ipswich
Lua Lua - Blackpool
Mark Tierney - Norwich(7)(16)Haha, no chance mate. Tierney was one of our best players till he got injured. LuaLua applies to that as wellDoubt Duguid would ever come to us and I don't think anyone at Southend really wants him.Doogie signed a contract a month agoIts wordworth thats going to charlton anyway he has signed a pre contract and will officially sign on the 1st of julyHope charlton got 7 figures for wordsworth cause col u already turned down 600 k from bournemouth in janAccording to my sources its 800-950k"Anthony Wordsworth - Blackpool" Why would Charlton need seven figures for a player Blackpool are buying (according to the rumour)?Why would duguid come to us and why would we want duguid2012/ 13 squad

ST Dos SantosBlackpool aren't buying him! Charlton ate getting him for 800k+ as we are in the championship and in London, whilst Blackpool isn't a nice area {Ed025's Note - how very dare you...blackpool is lovely!I can't ever see us signing both Doyle and kuszcak (however you spell it). Nor can I see Collins coming back or dos santos on loan. Although I would love to see dos santos back here, he's a real talent. Plus, if he did come back, how would he not make the first team?Dos Santos on the bench are you avin a laugh. Not as though any of these signings are going to happen but I would put Ward at CB. Place Edwards a RB and I would send smith back to New Zealand.Dobbie and Naismith are true as Karl Oyston could be forking out a bit of money to get Blackpool automatically promoted.It really isn't lovely {Ed025's Note - yes it is!..Lets get some money from Wordsworth while we can. I'd rather have 800k for him and spend it on a striker. He is well over rated in my opinion, he can hit a dead ball but thats about it.

Tottenham reject Giovanni Dos Santos is set for his second loan move to Ipswich following a few years with limited chances with Spurs(8)(19)He's going to Brighton or Leeds

Joel Ward has agreed to sign for Ipswich with the deal being confirmed Wednesday(13)(27)Don't know where you have heard that mate. Load or crap if you ask me. He wants to go to a club going places and will be a Sheffield Wednesday player in next few days.Why on earth would he want to move to Ipswich. He wants to move to bigger club than that.Another relegation fight for him this year thenHe had agreed a deal with Ipswich until Portmouth's administrators decided to keep him. Only place he'll go with Wednesday is the Xmas Outing!Back to league 1 then if he goes to wedsSadly for me as Ipswich fan it seems he is on way to leeds,Trevor birch(administrator)at Pompey says wards 1st choice is leeds and deal is imminent.wednesday are at the back of the queue for ward,why would he go to a newly promoted L1 club when he can take his pick from bigger clubs who are established at championship level.Bigger clubs . Don't make me laugh when have Ipswich been a big club?
You may be established championship side and that's it, he wants ambition and to go higher with a team not stay in championship. We may have been away a while but now were debt free and have money available we will see won't we. 38,000 for a league one game is big in my eyes. What was your highest in a higher league?Leeds or Blackpool.Hes goin to leeds or brightonSheffield Wed club going places?? Ha ha they've spent many years in League One last decade and now they think they are destined to big things. I'm not saying we (Ipswich) are world beaters but at least we have never graced League One.38,000 for Sheffield Wed a league one game is big in my eyes?? 20 000 of their fans came out of woodwork for the most important game of the season and they will be telling everyone in years time : we had 38 000 for a League One game....... Sheffield Wed are a comedy ! Will those 20 000 come back for the first game of the season?He is 100% signing for leeds. I know most peoplke say they have inside information but i actually do as I know the person whi signed the cheque for the transfer fee and it wasnt ken bates.Right, Update, Sheff Wed have pulled out, Leeds are looking shakey as Bates has stated sell before buy, Ipswich are strong favourites for his signatureSame with every team isn't it we all have woodworkers but some have more than others. Simply stating that were moving in the right direction I.e debt free, money to spend , ambitious chairman and manager. Did you say same about Norwich and Southampton when they flew through the championship?Spent many years haha 4 seasons in I don't know hoe many decades. Get your facts right. Everyone has woodworkers just some more than others. I was simply stating that we are debt free, ambitious manager and chairman with cash to spend, hence moving forward. Bet you said same about Norwich and Southampton when they sailed straight by you all from league 1 to prem.Sheffield Wed 4 seasons in League One in the last decade and now they think they're gonna do Southampton or Norwich.... They've always been one of the most deluded group of fans in England... Ha ha, last year Megson was a God after winning a few games in a row.... now they think Mandaric will buy them a Premiership hahaSheffield Wed will not finish higher than 15th next season. Moreover they might be involved in the relegation battle as they have no players who can shine in the Championship..... Madine? don't make me laugh...... We (Ipswich) will easily finish higher than them, any money on it

Released Gillingham Striker Jo Kuffour is being linked with a move to league one side Walsall, Kuffour was a shock release by the Gills as he scored 10 in 31 games last season for the league 2 side(11)(5)Wouldn't be a bad signing but he's getting onWould be a terrible signing for anyone, done it while on loan at us but as soon as he signed permenant scored 1 goal since januarySounds like a Darren Byfield wannabe (Gills fans and Saddlers fans will know what I mean)

21 May 2012 17:27:24
Speaking to Filipe Morais neighbour in Oldham yesterday he said morais has three clubs that want him. Preston, Stevenage, and Barnsley. But he has not ruled out staying at Oldham as he loves where he lives in delph and his teammates and is very settled.

I hope Oldham get there finger out and he stays, along with all the other players out of contract that Oldham should be working hard to keep. Eg Simpson, wesoloski, and kuqi.(6)(8)

Having been released by Exeter City, David Noble is keen to stay local and has already spoken to ex-boss Gary Johnson at Yeovil where he had a previous short loan spell. Could be a quick transaction this week(10)(5)Very Likely! Him and Upson in the midfield could be a great combination!This could be a good move, williams and blizzard not likely to play every game. get in there quick GJGood cm and a great partner for upsonHe would be a great signing. Je's quite creative as wellHes average at best if we're pushing for play-offs next year we need to be aiming a little higher than relegated players... hes nothing special but reasonable cover for upson and whoever else takes that midfield slot

Charlton are set to make a shock move for unsettled leicster striker Jermaine Beckford(3)(30)He's not unsettledYes he isNot a cat in hells chance that he will come to little old Charlton - get realVery unlikley!Bigger than leicester, they have just plonked in the middle of the champ for ages when we were finishing 10+ in the prem and your still doing it now despite the money you have spent, cheers for the 6 points in advance, although it feels mean to take points off of little old leicesterHe's not good enough for Charlton, so don't get ideas above your station.Charlton are trying to sign a player from Leicester but, it is NOT Beckford!I hope we keep him next season but not a chance he would be interested in joining a newly promoted L1 club.only club in championship he would be happy to go to is leeds going by his antics at elland rd few weeks back.Charlton bigger than Leicester get real, whats your avg gate?Charlton can have him, he's lazy and selfish on the ball, not a team player, very negative, enough saidHe is joining Leeds.Your av gate doesn't matter man city get less than man u but they're betterHe didn't say better, he said bigger...


21 May 2012 17:12:42
It's all very well saying PDC is going, Caddis, Ritchie..... Are going, if this is you're hunch then its your hunch say so.

I'd put good money on PDC not leaving swindon Town FC for quite some time, yes after fat Sam PDC will be manager of West Ham thats a given, lets keep to facts.

Fact PDC has said he wants to stay for another yr to see STFC into the Championship.

Fact he said a few months ago he was ready to quit everyone was miffed as to what this was, but then it turned out that around the same time Trehoe, it appears accused PDC of racism, which seems to be unfounded.

Fact none of the regular first teamers want to leave, they have all said so.

Fact Mcevely and Holmes have both said that they want to work out a deal at STFC

Andy Williams from Yeovil
Mcloed Barnet(9)(8)Paul Caddis signed one year contract extension to 2014 SSNI'm sure that PDC will honor his contract, he will be aware that he is only one year into a new career and needs to get more experience first. That should be to the benifit of STFC aswell as PDC.Spot on with your comments PDC will do another season with us but his managerial test will be this season as there is a big difference from L2 to L1 but he is very astute and intelligent and i believe we will have another successful season under Paolo then the vultures will be swooping to sign him up.
As you said the current squad of players enjoy playing for him and can see where he is going with the club and they will all stay.
Paolo is an honourable guy and if he gives his word he will honour his contract with us.

Charlton are VERY unlikely to go down next year.

PNE, Doncaster and MK Dons are the front runners(4)(8)Never .You must be joking, no one will ever sign GriggGrigg is a more clinical finisher than Ledesma if you were to look at goals to chances ratio.

Madine-Sheff Wed-1.5M

Jay-Southampton-6M(18)(15)Madine isnt going nowhere
And giles coke is under wednesday not bury
EPIC FAILU wont get pugh on a free this season his contract not up till next summerCeltic are not interested in re-signing ross wallaceMaxine for 1.5m!! You're having a laugh. We've turned 3m down. He's on a five yr contract and scored 18 in each of last 2 seasons (league goals).Coke does not play for Bury,Sheff Wed playerCoke is a Wednesday player not bury. Madine to burnley in your dreams.Above it says he off to everton.come on guys make ur minds up!!Jay never was and never will go to Saints,there are big clubs in for the lad so please behave yourselvesLol for the last time celtic are not signing ross wallaceIn the past couple of week Jay has signed with 5 different clubs at least! I think its fair to say he will move, but where? well time will tell. Saints have always been linked with him, but they are more interested in Hooper from Celtic.Gabbidon I dont think so to old, howe likes young playersGiles Coke is at Sheffield Wednesday...What other big clubs are there interested in jay then?Wont get in swans teamPugh is out of Contract in a years time! Not now! Also you will not sign Madine!Marc Pugh's contract does not run out this Summer, so I don't think you'll be getting him for free."Jay was and never will go to Saints..bigger clubs interested"

Come on let's be realistic. I support Saints so I am biased but it wouldn't be a bad club for him to go to with our emphasis on bringing through talent, decent fans, great facilities (etc. you get the point, I won't labour it - this isn't a self indulgent rant, just hopefully correcting some above idiocy).

Jay R might come to Saints, who knows. And it won't be a question of size or wealth, it will be if the two clubs can agree on a valuation of the player. Don't always make light rumours into a mud throwing match about size of club etc. We're talking about Jay Rodriguez here, not messi.As a burnley fan i do not agree with the above said lists . dont paint us all as the same . however wherever jay does go to i am sure every burnley fan would wish him all the best he is a cracking player and will do a job in the prem . i have no doubt he will go on to represent england at some stage . i think he will go to everton or fulham if they come in with another bidTheyll have to pay alot more than 1.5m for madine


21 May 2012 16:34:25
Happy for James Husband, to say he's only recently progressed through the youth system with a friend of mine Harry Middleton (1st year DRFC youth, One-To-Watch), being scouted by premier league clubs is massive. Would like to see the young talent play in the first team this year. Also wouldn't mind Jon Parkin back on loan this year if not on a permanent basis. If he does well at Scunthorpe, then surely he wouldn't mind coming back to a bigger club.(4)(4)How is Doncaster any bigger ?


21 May 2012 16:32:27
Notts Count to sign Fitz Hall on a 2 year deal(10)(12)I doubt 'one size' will sign for Notts


21 May 2012 16:31:06
Derby will sign ex-leicster striker Darius Vassell following his release, and derby lose the chase to sign dixon and bristol city beat them to it. Also, as matt oakley has departed lcfc, he will consider a player-coach role to kick-start his new career. Derby, Barnsley, Charlton are intrested(6)(13)Yeah, because Charlton are interested in everyone!Charlton are NOT interested in this player! Nor most of the others post on here. We signed 23 players last year because we needed a clear out, it will not happen again (unless the albran works).Nor for Bristol City!

Shrewsbury Town Captain Ian Sharps rejects offer of a new contract ,looks like heading to either Tranmere or Rotherham(8)(6)I hate to say it but it seems true.It's TranmereClose source to Sharps has indicated to me , it's Tranmere. Also stated he has moved for his family.Makes sense for him to go to either club as he was regarded the best player from his time at the millers but seen as though tranmere are in L1 he is set to link back up with ronnie mooreYes its tranmereFamily? His family is settled in Shrewsbury. Its a football decision


21 May 2012 16:26:25
tubbs will not go to rotherham becaue they offerd t they wanted him for 200k and
bournemouth paid 800k for him an their a league2 team(7)(7)Bournemouth paid 150.000 upfront so why wont he go to Rotherham?Agreed - they can have arter for nowt!


21 May 2012 16:23:15
The Hammers are determined to keep
Vas Te but Cardiff , Swansea and Everton
want him so it is not looking good for the
hammers(10)(27)Cardiff??Under contract until June 2014, so West Ham don't have to sellWest ham are richer than cardiff swansea and everton and hes a guaranted starter he won't leave {Ed025's Note - he is a guaranteed starter for the hammers....but would not get anywhere near evertons reserves, never mind first team!..Not likely but it could be a great buy for cardiffWhy on earth would Vaz Te join any of those clubs?As CCFC fan this rumour is ridiculous. Vas Te showed great promise first time in the prem, now he is older and more experienced so I can see him being a success in the prem and going to a better team in jan or next summer.Where r these ridiculas rumours comin from Cmon be serious will yaYer 'avin a giraffe !

even if you counted Vaz Te and Carlton Cole combined as one player they wouldn't make Everton's team {Ed025's Note - i agree


21 May 2012 16:17:06
Dear ed, Stephen Henderson has joined West Ham on a 3 year deal making him West Ham's first Premier League signing. It's for an undisclosed fee so you can add this to the confirmed transfers page(11)(8)Why do 4 people think is Who ?

Watford are interested in free agent Tomasz Cywka. Also rumoured to interested ex-team mate Chris Maguire. After a successful loan spell at portsmouth Nigel Clough still classed Maguire as a fringe player.

Watford also chasing QPR's winger/striker Tommy Smith to sign him for a third time.

-James Collins from shrewsbury (although he is discussing his future with Shrewsbury)(10)(3)Tommy smith would be a great signing james colins is ten times better then iwelumo so this looks goodSmith and Collins are still possibilities. Collins will depend on whether he is ready for Championship football


21 May 2012 16:11:18
Ryan McGivern to sign for Bristol City on season loan from Manchester City.(7)(7)Man city would want to sell him rather than loan him again. he is not good enough for man city.He's not good enough for bristol city either

Richard Keogh in talks with Bristol City over a £200,000 move.(15)(11)Keogh is too good for Bristol, think again.If he's too good for Championship Bristol City, what's he doing at League 1 Coventry then?
I gather he is getting married to a Bristol girl so it fits!Not really too good for bristol city when he plays for a league one club like coventry and spent 3 years at ashton gate previously... its 500k as well.Richards so good that hes in league one with coventry and we're the only ones to be linked with him! yeah so good! we should never have let him go in the first place, good player but not too good for us!

21 May 2012 16:00:17
ricardo rocha, jamie ashdown and benjani released by pompey, balram chainrai portsmouth will buy again(9)(2)Ashdown must be because of wages he is quility at pompeyBoth are excellent players. It's down to wages, age, and the manager's desire to simply start from a fresh base. Personally, think Pompey have made a mistake as they were not particularly high earners.


21 May 2012 15:59:49
Where do all these mickey Mouse rumours come from.

Chelsea are ready to make a £30m move for Edison Cavani despite having no manager . Fernando Torres wants out of London where he has failed to settle after his whopping £50m move from Liverpool. Chelsea will have to take a massive hit on the Spaniard though as he will only likely fetch £25-30m.(21)(8)He will go back to athletico :DThey will be lucky to get 25-30m, more like 10-15m

Andres Villas-Boas is the current favourite but he also has an offer from AS Roma. Liverpool are considering an approach for Alan Pardew while Paul Lambert,Michael Laudrup,Frank Riijkard and former manager Rafael Benitez are also in the running.(10)(13)Martinez will not go to Villa, he turned them down when they finished above us so definitely won't go when they finished below us.Roma have already appointed a new manager mate and Rafa not in contention according to some journalists.I love seeing how far liverpool have fallen:)getting rejected by every manager they go for.theyre a joke now and only gonna keep gettin worseThe only managers rejecting are the ones who know they are not capable of getting the club into the champions league.Things will change this seasonYeah, the anfield moggy will take over, and be named "Queen Kitty"

Wolves ins & Outs-

Alex Smithies (Goalkeeper)
Emmanuel Frimpong (Midfielder,Loan)
Kenwyne Jones (Striker)
Patrick Van Aanholt (Defender)

Hennessey (Goalkeeper)
Berra (Defender)
Foley (Defender)
Elokobi (Defender)
O'Hara (Midfielder)
Jarvis (Midfielder)
Hunt (Midfielder)
Fletcher (Striker)
Doyle (Striker)(12)(2)So that is most of the first team out then is it ?If we sell fletcher and doyle but only sign jones it would leave us with 3 strikers and 1 of those vokes appears to want out aswell.Kenwyne Jones to Wolves?Lol smithies jones n van anaholt
we got McCarey ikeme de vries henno
ward rekord cranston
doyle vokes SEB cassidy winnall fletcher

so we dont need a new keeper we do need a new left back

n henno wants to stay o'hara told people he was staying at the awards jarvis will only go for very silly money

hunt berra elokobi foley stearman ward henry can all leave for meObvs not a wolves fan posting this rubbish...would have more the list of outs...jarvis at a push and thats for 10 mill if people actually will pay that...fletcher i will be sorry to see go but we shall see what happens with him wouldn't say hes 100% for the ins you say...frimpong would be welcome back jones not a chance can we afford those wages in the championship if we fail at our first attempt and smithies don't need him ikeme all day long"Obvs not a wolves fan posting this rubbish...would have more brains"

He would've been unique.


21 May 2012 14:55:27
Redmond, Ince and Phillips will all go to Premier league clubs this summer. Ince and Phillips to Norwich for 6mil + add-ons.(2)(27)Not to sure about thatI'll have a bet that Norwich won't pay transfers fees that high and that is why Lambert wants outDespite West Ham fans enjoying to boo anyone with the name Ince on their shirt, there are whispers that The Hammers are considering making a bid for young Tom.That's 6 players I@ve just read are going to Norwich. Has Dehlia just got another cook book out?Not a chance!Everyone's going to Norwich, must be loaded, or the players must be desperate - you decide6mil + add ons for 2 players is well within our budget. We spent similar to this on Bennet and Pilkington last year. However im not sure we will go for both if we are interested. We have money to spend which we know, as the board have said we have similar to spend as last season.

We spent approx:
E Bennett - 2 Mil
Pilkington - 2 Mil
Morisson - 2.5mil
Ayala - 800k-1 mil
R Bennet - 3.5 mil
Howson - Believed to be approx 2 mil
Vaughan - 2.5mil
Kyle Naughton Loan fee rumoured 5-800k
Johnson - Free but large sign on fee

So id say we will have again 15 mil + any fees recieved. So 6 mil for 2 players doesnt seem all that expensive for us considering we dont need a major overhaul.There is no way Phillips and Ince will go to Norwich.Hoolahan did lolHoolahan went for 250k, cant see Norwich stump up 3m - 4m when their best player is handing in a transfer requests because he's earning 16k a week. Ince & Phillips are both on 8k + bonus at Pool so they wont be going to the back of beyond unless there getting the same as Holt'They wont be going to the back of beyond'..........this is Norfolk were talking about not the outback in Australia.


21 May 2012 14:52:40
My sources so far on Leicester's out of contract players.

Steve Howard: Notts County have already began talks with the striker. But according to my source Sheffield Utd could be preparing to hijack County's bid regardless of whether they gain promotion or not.

Matt Oakley: Portsmouth could go for the former saint. He would give them good balance and experience in the centre of midfield. Other teams in the hunt for Oakley are; Exeter, Chesterfield and Preston.

Darius Vassell: MK Dons are pondering on whether to make a move. Their biggest worry is whether Vassell can last a 46 game season. Coventry and Doncaster are the 2 other teams at the moment being linked with the striker. Though according to my source Vassell is keen on a move away from England.

Chris Weale: Hartlepool, Yeovil, Preston, and Crawley have all made a move for the keeper.(6)(9)Great keeper even at scoring headers for Yeovil from a Yeovil town fan!xComplete garbage about darius vassellLooks likly that vassell will call time on his playing career unless one last payday comes calling


21 May 2012 14:48:18
Swansea closer to agreeing a fee(1MILLION) with Burnley for Chris Mccann(14)(2)Try 33, as in 300,000 he is without a doubt one of the worst players I have ever seen play for Burnley. Before his injury he was fairly decent, now looks scared to tackle, head, shoot and dribble. They can have him.You obviously arent a burnley fan and dont have a clue about football....Chris McCann is a quality player , his injury set him back abit but hopefully next season he will start to show his class abit morePlease take him off us


21 May 2012 14:47:23
Brighton linked with David Connolly after his realease from Southampton.(10)(13)Would be a top signing for us if we could pull it offCome on seagulls sign him up !!Well past his best and not exactly a tall bustling striker that Poyet is after. Hopefully we will stay well clear of Connolly. Yakubu would be nice, could do for us what Roberts did for Reading.Yeah cuz yakubu would play for brighton :/ think about itDavid Connolly was great for saints and probably kick started our promotion this year. He was playing decent until he got an injury and by then we had already signed Sharp and Lee. He's a natural goalscorer and could maybe give any champ club a kickstart out of that league!Can definitely do a good job at championship level if he can stay fit


21 May 2012 14:46:52

21 May 2012 14:42:39
Norwich City to offer Brighton cash plus Andrew Crofts for the services of midfielder Liam Bridcutt.(3)(9)A number of clubs may be interested in Bridcutt but a swop with Crofts would need 2m+ added to it. Problem is that Crofts can't play Bridcutt's role and would be no more than a squad/bench player. Brighton have moved on since he leftCrofts isn't exactly to Brighton's standards any more and would be a bench warmer if he came back.


21 May 2012 14:42:16
Leicester City are monitoring midfileder Alan Navarro after Brighton confirmed he is not be to offered new contract.(9)(8)Ha ha! Are you Alan Navarro? Seriously. It's not going to happen is it. Good honest pro but for Leicester if they don't throw a million or two at it they ain't going to be good enoughYou may want to check sky sports you so called football fan. Just because it's Leicester you automatically assume they GOT to buy and not sign freebies.


21 May 2012 14:41:30

21 May 2012 14:40:11
The Argus newspaper are today reporting that Brighton are on the verge of signing Dundee United's attacking midfielder Danny Swanson. Swanson is a much sought after midfielder and libe long Hibs fan - but wishes to play south of the border(8)(5)Erm no it doesn't? Poyet's exact words: 'Why would I sign him when I can have the best attacking midfielder in the Championship?'No they are not! Todays Argus quote:

"Albion were linked with Dundee United’s out-of-contract playmaker Danny Swanson last week.

Poyet responded: “Why would I sign him when I can have the best attacking midfielder in the Championship?"

Get your facts right before you post rubbish on here please!Poyet has pretty much said he is not interested in him.

Poyet- "why would I need to sign him if it looks like Vicente is staying"No it's not!What is the point of posting a blatant lie?Calm down people, calm down. If you click the link to the story in the argus then that story says 'on the verge of signing'.Errrrm !! Yes it does say that. Look at the link that the story takes you to.3 days previous it said that! In YESTERDAYS Argus (21/05/12 when this was posted!) it said that Gus wasn't interested as Vicente is almost certain to re-sign, check the date!!


21 May 2012 14:36:14
Yeovil Town defender Bondz N'Gala is attracting interest from a number of clubs after his no nonsense defending caught the eye of several clubs both north and south of the border. Rumoured strong interest from Port Vale and Aberdeen.(4)(9)Bondz N'gala is awful from a Yeovil town fan!xPlease !!

Nottingham Forest are close to agreeing deals for both Hibernian captain Ian Murray and Sone Aluko who is available on a free transfer from Rangers. Other players that interests Cotterill are: Giles Barnes, Kyle McFadzean, Gary Madine.(4)(16)The. Only way you'd get madine is if we wanted rid. You're just not massive enough for himMadine will struggle next season and we have better with blackstock. We need a nippy striker to play off blackstock.Murray can't even get a game for Hibs so why would Forest want a very average SPL player?How are hibs a big club i know we forest fans go on about old times but when was the last time you won anythingGiles Barnes was rejected by forest last year and he's not done much in the meantime has he..And how are they gonna get barnes madine and mcfadzean they have no money hense why all there players are leaving ....Where is the money coming from Notts Forest dont have any!Forest do have money and its Nottingham


21 May 2012 14:22:06
Charlton to offer Rudi Skacel a contract at The Valley.(6)(7)Charismatic player who was worshipped at Hearts but prone to "going missing" in some games.Saints fan here. Skacel can be a very good player on his day.
Problem with his time at Southampton was he kept getting played at left back instead of midfieldI love him whenever I hear Scottish footie I think him and Gary hooper, sign him up!


21 May 2012 14:22:04
stoke city are showing an interest in former west brom midfielder somen tchoyi after his relwase from the midlands club(2)(9)He's well over six foot so he'd fit in well at Stoke. All together now ..... HOOF!!Quality player misused at the Albion, can't believe we've released him one of our biggest threats bad move Albion, TEO TEO TEO's TEO time just someone else's time now1.5 for Graham what aload of crap he is at atleast 6Hoof? another glory hunter who watches from his armchair? shame, i feel sorry for you, you'll never know what it's like to be passionate about your local clubOne thing this site does is shows some idiots up for their lack of knowledge about football. :-) Stoke do deploy wide men probably more than any other Prem side so could see this happeningTchoyi was very overrated at WBA. Threatened every so often but very little footballing intelligence and never looked in control of the ball. Incredibly frustrating player, glad he's been released (from a WBA fan)Class player very under rated at the Albion TEO TEO TEO from an Albion fan big mistake letting him go


21 May 2012 14:20:18
Seems that this window will be quiet for most clubs as according to this MB- West Ham and Southampton are signing up every player going.

9 players set to leave Stoke but no big names apart from maybe Huth who is attracting a lot of interest from Germany and the Prem and Kenwyne Jones who has been out of favour. Fuller will not be offered a new deal and Sorensen may leave after the Euros again to Germany.

Pulis has had a short break and has already contacted several players on his shopping list. 4 names expected to replace the outgoing fringe players along with a young keeper linked also rumoured to be Jake Kean and the already publicised Owen deal. Matt Jarvis will almost certainly be a Stoke player after contact in January's window. A player Pulis tried to sign previously. Fletcher has interested the Potters also but NOT their No 1 striking target.

There may me more business with Stoke and Spurs which was close in the last window.

One Championship players interesting the Potters from MBoro

Two out of contract players are interesting the Potters , one a midfielder and one a full back.

I did break the Crouch/Palacios and Woodgate stories last season just for the record(10)(3)Would be a shame if Huth goes as he has become part of the spine of Stoke City, but if Stoke cash in on him now and get another decent centre-back it would be much better than getting nothing for him next summer.Seems Huth wants to move on with both Spurs and two German club waiting on him


21 May 2012 14:16:17
Blackpool are ready to splash the cash this summer on 4-5 players that Ian Holloway believes can fire the Tangerines to the prem via automatic promotion.

Sam Baldock, West Ham, LOAN or £1.5m
Graham Dorrans, West Brom, £1.5m
Steven Naismith, Rangers, £750,000
Stephen Dobbie, Swansea, £750,000

(Blackpool will face tough competetion from numerous clubs for all 4 players signature).(3)(24)Naismith is not 750k no matter what rangers are financiallyFunny. Dorrans for 1.5m, you have to be joking. He's getting back to his best and he is far to good for Blackpool and the ChampionshipDorrans 1.5m? Keep dreaming! Looking more around 4m - 5m for himDorrans isn't going anywhere after just getting back into the West Brom team and getting his form back.Naismith is currently worth 2m only due to the current financial state Rangers are in. Normal process and Naismith is worth 5-6m. Keep dreaming.As a blackpool fan i would hope and dream but oyston would probs only sign dobbie thereSplashing cash doesn't describe oystonDorrans 1.5 million no way. He won't leave anyway he's to good for the championshipSwansea won't accept less than 1m for DobbieIs this a joke.....graham dorrans 1.5m :S

Luke Young to sign for Spurs this summer from Plymouth Argyle for 5 Million plus add ons including a bonus should he play for England, but to be loaned back for the season to gain more first team experience(2)(20)Too good, local lad, we had to sell mason to cardiff but we'll keep young thank you goodbyeYou are having a laugh he is good but not that good . I have heard that Robert Earnshaw may be joining us though .Just signed a new contract, so doubt that! He is better off down here anyways. To get first team football, will develop better then in a youth set upDon't see Young ever being good enough for PL, Believe it when I see it!

Why no news from the Swindon Board or Dicannio???
Reason is there looking to find an instant replacement as believe me all these Fairy stories about Dicannio and his loyalty.
No he is off this week for Money/prestige and a far better club in a higher division.
Nothing new for Swindon,they Lost Hoddle/Wise.
So look for the announcement as he has gone for sure(4)(5)Yeah yeah yeah another jealous Oxford fan - wont happen and he wont be going to west ham. Concentrate on your own club. If Di Canio was going the key players woudlnt be signing extended contracts as they all want to play for him.

So go away and think up another story.Dream on, DiCannio will be here for another season at least!Do you think its a coincidence that this was posted after school time?What a load of Tosh, Maybe he is on holiday as the season has finished, maybe because most players are on hols there is nothing to report, maybe he doesnt like Oxford and maybe neither do we !!Seems that you poxford fans care more about us than you do about your own. Care about your own team and who you playing against other than us all the time, because we are not interested in you. Then you might not be sat in league 2 with a bowling alley and 3 stands :)Another deluded poxford fanOnly a matter of time
before he walks

21 May 2012 13:38:28
West Ham to sign Junior Hoilett on a free transfer. They are in prime position to sign him as he is great mates with Big Sam which could swing the transfer in West Hams favour.
WATCH THIS SPACE!(3)(29)Hoillett would not be a free transfer FACT. As he is under 24 years old Blackburn Rovers at the very least would be entitled to compensation.Bet he doesn't go to West Ham, you've only clinched promotion saturday and you've already started deluding yourselves. I know you won the world cup and all that but face it you ain't big enough to sign the likes of Hoilet. Oh and he ain't free you would have to pay compensation because he is under 24No - he's shown a lot of potential, several established Prem teams are interestedWhat with clubs like tottenham everton and liverpool interested your in dream land mateNo way will this happen.

Rumours now picking up that Neil Warnock could be on the verge of a shock resignation as Leeds manager.

What is known for sure is that Leeds were somehow unable to provide funds to finance Joel Ward's move from Pompey.

Wouldn't surprise me personally, as I don't think Bates will be prepared to match NW's investment expectations.(14)(14)Small time club nowAbsolute tosh. That makes no sense whatsoever. Warnock knew what he was taking on when he agreed to stay at Leeds this summer. It is true that the signing of Ward has been delayed (which is actually to be the double-signing of Ward and Halford, as I have posted), and this is because Bates does not want to be paying the wages of two extra players in the days leading up to June 1st. Interest from other clubs has meant though that he's set to finance the moves now anyway, so that Neil can get his targets. Pearce was the priority signing, which was why he was snapped up early, but Ward is too important for Neil to let slip away.

It is worth reminding people that Leeds have NO financial restraints outside Ken Bates and his affairs. And seeing as we paid more than 400k for Pearce, Ward's fee is not an issue. The combined fee for the two players is what is causing Ken to fold his arms, but the deal has NOT stalled. At least, it hasnt yet.
wallyThe signing of Ward has not been delayed, he hasn't made his mind up where he is going yet- direct quote from Trevor Birch, nothing to do with Leeds signing Halford. However there are rumours circulating that Leeds are having issues with the fee, posted by Leeds fans.Wally,
You should know by now that Bates does not want to invest huge sums in transfer fees or wages, although all Leeds fans keep on about being a big club because you get great support, the simple fact is that while Bates rules the roost you have little or no chance of promotion to Premier league unless he actually starts to release some funds. The Season Norwich went straight up to premier you had a team capable of promotion had Bates invested approx the same as Norwich did around 4M on new players.
You have since lost Johnson & Howson to Norwich both of whom have proved their talent in premier (especially Howson), and I fear you may well lose Snodgrass and a couple more of your better players simply because they must be getting very frustrated by club policy on new additions.Neil Warnock has no intentions of resigning.
They do have the money for Joel Ward.
Its just down to him where he chooses to go.Get a will never come close to being as big a club as leeds............EVER!.. FACT. Nar stop talking drivel...........muppets. M.O.T. White.E.Yorkshire Evening Post at the weekend said that Phil Hay (chief football writer) has had it from THREE separate sources that Ward has agreed in principle, and what is holding up the deal is Bates being unable to produce the cash, because he's spent it all on corporate boxes we can't fill.

Whatever you say about Ken Bates - he sure is a GOOD businessman.Wouldnt surprise me in the slightest. As a Leeds fan ive seen it all before, think everyone realises that Warnocks not a man to work on a limited budget and thats exactly what it is at leeds.

Leeds United contract rebel Ross McCormack is being monitored by Yorkshire neighbours Huddersfield Town. Town manager Simon Grayson brought McCormack to Elland Road and would be interested in bringing him to the Galpharm should they gain promotion. Leeds have admitted they may listen to offers for the Scot this summer rather than let his deal expire. Rumours in Leeds suggest any sale of McCormack may be used to part fund a bid for transfer listed former Leeds man Jermaine Beckford.(15)(21)Rubbish. he aint going to drop a division. stop making up such nonsence.Bates is too tight, 1st and 2nd division players 4 u now coyrThey dont get on 1 of the reasons he was sack was because he lost the dressing room and fell out with bruce and mccormackNot a small time club just a small time "Chelsea loving' Chairman with no affection for the clubHe will not go to work for that muppet when lower Premiership teams will be in for him.RUBBISH! why would he join a newly promoted team when there a good chance he can play in premObvious McCormack is on his way out as he now has big ideas about himself and has refused a contract. He should remember that he was a sub before he went to Leeds. Leeds can only sign when they sell. Bates is keeping them in the Championship through his refusal to spend and that ain't possible. Beckford has wages that Bates won't pay - christ, he can't even keep the players he already has by paying good wages, it's hardly likely that 'anyone' of any notability will want to sign for Leeds given that Bates does not reward improvement and has a history of failed and empty promises. The club are just a status symbol to boost his own ego, he cares nothing for Leeds United or the club's loyal fans.

Leeds are heavily linked with Free agents Aaron Wilbraham and David Connolly. Connolly, 34, and Wilbraham, 32, were both released by Southampton and Norwich respectively. Warnock is also still continuously linked with Bristol City front man Jon Stead.(8)(16)Apparently Connolly going to brighton.Think you are way off the mark on all three there, better players are being targeted for a promotion push - Leeds have let better players than these go on free's.David Connolly would majorly improve leeds team-saints fan.You got no chance of sign stead he loves it at citySteady loves living in the best major city in England. If Huddersfield came calling then maybe as it's his hometown club but Steady seems to love living in Bristol so I can't see it.

west ham are looking at junior hoillet and joe cole a very good source tells me,however theres a lot of interest in hoillet but 'big sam' had him at blackburn which could be a big factor in the move. Other few names on shortlist are a return for villas james collins, a loan move for keiran gibbs and an audacious move for citys adam johnson although the latter 2 are dependant on there own clubs signing players in there positions, you heard it here first.(16)(17)Also jamie o'hara is another strong possibility

can reading actually sign anyone with the impending take over still ongoing? i thought that any club changing owner was put under a transfer embargo or is tht just a myth?(6)(6)Complete myth !It is a myth. We've just signed McCleary, albeit on a Bosnan.Seeing as we signed McCleary last week I'll go with no transfer embargo.Signing Mccleary was strange though, there usually pics of him and Brian signing paperwork but there was nothingI think it's mainly just that outgoing managers don't want to spend their money on new players if they won't be able to reap the rewards - Madjeski is keeping some shares, supports Reading and has far too much money so he's still willingThere is a little reward for going into the prem, so i doubt Madjeski is dipping into his pockets too much and fair play to him he's a business man and always admited he's not the kind of owner to take Reading to the next level.I doubt he will touch any of his personal fortune to delve into the transfer market, that's why he has sold the majority share. Madjeski alwyays admitted his fortunes weren't enough to make Reading a main stay prem team, especially as his main passion is art.Outgoing managers? Brian's going nowhere. If Anton sacked him he'd really annoy the fans.Might be cause its not fully processed yet but clubs and player have agreed it, remember seeing one of our players tweeting him on Twitter saying be good to have you round the mad stad in a couple of weeks, or something to that effect.


21 May 2012 11:42:02
Reading now face stiff competition from West Ham for targets Whittingham and Rhodes. However there has been a gentleman's agreement between Reading and Huddersfield since January (part of the reason Sean Morrison went on loan there in the first place!) that Rhodes will join Reading after the play off campaign.(9)(15)Malky Makay has today announced Whittingham is staying at Cardiff. (WalesOnline)The transfer window is a long time...a lot can change.They will need a fair bit of cash to sign him as he's only recently signed a new contract.Not sure Rhodes is the man for us. We need cover for Roberts and Rhodes isn't it, neither is Matt Philips. Rumours that Yakubu is coming seem to have dried up. ShameGentleman's agreement - absolute rubbish. Stop making stuff up. Sean Morrison's loan was nothing to do with Rhodes.

Sturrock has banned him on numerous occasions for his behaviour (he calls it passion!). Bilel will depart for Watford I believe.He's happy there!He doesn't hate paul sturrock you tool, he loves the fans and said after our play off 2nd leg he wont leave till he gets the club promoted, so jog on thinking you know anything

After just signing McCleary we don't exactly need any more wingersNewcastle are also interested because he was at wembley watching himI dont know if you noticed, but Alan Pardew said after the play off final that he has looked at Matt Phillips, but he thinks that he needs to develop in the Championship for another year first.

As said in the papers over previous weeks now West Ham are promoted they have new targets to improve the squad. they include:

Joe Cole-West Ham haven't had much creativity on the right wing this season and as a fans legend at West Ham and he is available cheap after his loan spell with Lille has ended is moving away from Liverpool but looking to stay in England. Seems like he is the number 1 target. Could be difficult if Liverpool appoint a new manager who wants him to stay.

Nigel Reo-Coker-avaliable on a free transfer. A player liked by Big Sam and would be seen as a good addition on a bosman.

Kieran Richardson-West Ham need a good right back as Joey O'Brien is not always fit and Guy Demel looks a bit out of sorts. Surplus to requirements at Sunderland.

George McCartney-There is a gentlemans agreement with Sunderland that if West Ham were promoted he would sign for the Hammers. Has looked good all season anyway.

Paul Robinson, Manuel Almunia, Craig Gordon and Fraser Forster-New goalkeeper targets if Green leaves. Almunia and Gordon could still join if Green stays as they are free transfers and can provide competition for the number 1 jersey.

Victor Moses-Has rejected a new contract at Wigan. Very highly thought of by David Gold and David Sullivan. Would be willing to pay highly as one of the owners wanted players.

Roger Johnson-Availible cheaply from relegated Wolves as a replacement for Abdoulaye Faye who will be 35 during this campaign.

Nathaniel Clyne-Most unlikely of the targets as he is wanted by Manchester United and Chelsea but bearing in mind that West Ham have a 30 Million transfer kitty a deal does not seem impossible.

Ahmed Elmohammody-Surplus to requirements at Sunderland. A back-up option if the Joe Cole deal falls through.

A Striker-Every transfer window West Ham buy a striker. Possible ones are from the relegated clubs with Ivan Klasnic, Yakubu and Steven Fletcher the best options. Jordan Rhodes linked as always.

Peter Whittingham-Always linked with West Ham in every transfer window but nothing ever materialises.

Only about half of these deals will happen but as mentioned West Ham have a 30 million transfer kitty so all of the deals could happen.
I could see Joe Cole and Nigel Reo-Coker re-signing as well as a 5 million joint fee for McCartney, Richardson and Elmohammody.
West Ham to finish 15th in the league ideally.

COYI(15)(27)Good post, not a Hammers fan myself but most of that makes sense, i'd like to see Joe Cole back at West Ham, perhaps he'd return to the player he once was.Start by getting a new managerSince when was Richardson a right back?Richardson the left sided player is our target at right back? yakubu who the chairmen didnt sign because they said he wasnt good enough to play for the club the year we went down?reo coker who gets booed by us? i agree with joe cole,richardson down the left side and would love moses but the rest is nonsenseKieran Richardson as RB.... I'll have what ever your having .. Richardson is a LB!West Ham 30 mil to spend , dont make me laugh . They have lost a fortune this season by still having a premier league wage bill . Im sure the owners will want to re-coup some of this seasons loss so no 30 mil . Maybe some good free transfers and maybe 10 mil at the very most .I'll happily drive Elmohammady down to London for you...please, please take him.Richardson is left footed so why buy him as a right back?Keiran Richardson is a left-back. He has been converted from a leftwinger where he played when making his debut for Man Utd and England.They dont have 30m to spend said they would of had to spend that to cover the costs if they didnt make it to the prem so get ur facts right..and all the above players will have other premship clubs ahead of the hammers..the hammers will have do what made then bankupt in the first more wages then everyone elseStop dreaming mate most of these players play on the floor, they wont fit into your team. HOOFFletxher supposibly turned down sunderland s why would he go to west ham who have a good chance of getting relegated first seasonCraig gordon's going arsenal as fabianski and almunia are leaving.Moses has not turned down a new deal as he hasn't been offered one, it's just his agent stirring the pot. He will sign a new deal once Martinez confirms he's staying. Also Kieran Richardson is a left back not a right back

A bid of around £200,000 is apparently being tabled.(8)(4)Have heard this one too.Rotheram? who? oh that lg 2 side! wes thomas is far better then that!Good, Thomas is dog poo, they can have Arter as well.Let them have Thomas and Tubbs and sign someone decent..They can have Thomas for nowt....good riddanceTubbs has been a shocking signing and shows why Lee Bradbury got the bullet!

Charlton are about to sign James Hayter who has been released by Doncaster Rovers. Hayter, who is regarded as one of the best headers of a ball outside the premiership is very keen on a move down south as he originally hails from the Isle of Wight.(6)(13)Interesting option... Wouldn't mind him.We have Kermorgant, THE BEST HEADER OF ANY FOOTBALL.Why would Charlton need another striker who's good in the air, when we have Danny Haynes and Yann Kermogant?Charlton is a long way from the Isle of Wight!Agree with all the comments above apart from the first one, London is hardly close to IOW and Kermorgant is 100% the best header in the football league, and he had a awful scoring record at Donny, someing like 30 in 120? So no thanks considering we want to be in the prem in 3/4 seasons


21 May 2012 10:19:22
ed, what are the chances of michael owen going to leicester do you think? And do you know if Shlupp is going out on loan? {Ed001's Note - highly unlikely Owen will go to Leicester, why would they want him? His main priority is his horses, not football. No decision has been made on Schlupp, I believe he will be assessed in pre-season, though a good loan offer might make up the club's mind.}(4)(9)Owen wouldn't drop down, not while there are Premier League suckers out there wanting to sign him plus, as said, Leicester don't need him. I think the decision regarding Shluup has more to do with Beckford than anything else. Pearson knows Shluup and knows what he can do but with Vardy, Waghorn and Nugent in the mix, one from Shluup or Beckford will probably move on.

There were rumours of a fall-out between Pearson and Beckford during the season but the player still finished 2nd behind Nugent with 15 goals and will no doubt do better next season with a revamped squad around him.

A serious offer for Beckford (3m from West Ham has been rumoured) would make the decision easy, but Leicester obviously don't need to sell so if the player is happy, it'll be Shluup who heads out on loan, if not, and Beckford leaves, Shluup will stay put.Wouldnt shock me if Schlupp went to Charlton with the Chris Powell link.Owen has stated dropping down to the championship is not an option. Also, leicester have Nugent Beckford Vardy Waghorn Schlupp, so would not want another striker of this form. Pearson looks to be assembling a youthful squad and has also said that he will keep fair play regulations in mind, something that Owen's high wages will make difficult.Oh my sides are aching from laughing at the Michael Owen idea. If you were him would you really go to Leicester.

He scord against Sogndal yesterday.Add wolves and reading to the list.Sorry, my mistake. LSK were playing Sogndal last night. He did score the only goal of the game. He now has 11 goals in his last 5 games.He plays for lille so how can this be?Also interesting wolves and reading, but said in an interview that he wanted to stay in Lillestrom until a prem club came in for him {Ed025's Note - reading are a prem club..Solbakken tried to sign him for Cologne and will try again now he is at Wolves, only Wolves have the money, Cologne wouldn't pay the fee.Does anyone know how much LSK are asking for him?Looking at this guy on youtube he looks pretty good.

ANY BRISTOL CITY TRANSFER NEWS PLEASE.(3)(12)Jon Stead is wanted by Leeds.Rumour is Ian Black could end up there. Terrific footballer in centre mid but disciplinary record is not brill !Ian Black and Rudi Skacel looking likely to sign, expect all signings to be Hearts/Hibs/Motherwell/St Johnstone/Dundee Utd due to managers links

West Ham interested in Man City winger Adam Johnson on a permanent or loan deal to add creativity to the right wing as the currently have none. Collison is a good player but his crosses are not great and Vaz Te is a striker(18)(20)Join the cueWest ham will be intrested in every 2nd rate player..but fail to attract any1 with any real classWhy would Johnson go to a club just promoted? He is a top player which is why he is at city, he isn't going to go to a team like west ham who are likely to just drop back down.Johnson is an excellent winger - he will want to play for a Europe-challenging team, top half at least. And there will be plenty of offers from those sort of teamsWest ham can't afford johnson, its as simple as that.

Ipswichs Damien Delaney off to Leeds on loan for the season.(5)(19)Leeds won't be signing players on loan this seasonHave him, he's a donkey.Given we only have 2 centre backs inthe whole squad I doubt this somewhat

West Ham to re-sign ex-players Joe Cole and Nigel Reo-Coker as well as free agent ivan Klasnic, Jordan Mutch and Danny Simpson. these transfers are realistic targets but West Ham are also looking at Matt Phillips, Tom Ince, Victor Moses, Ahmed Elmomammody, Nathaniel Clyne, Danny Guthrie, Wilfred Zaha, Maynor Figeroua, Hugo Rodellga and Adrian Marriappa. After the first 5 targets West Ham might get 1 of the other 10 if they are very lucky,

COYI(10)(18)I really hope we do not go and get x players as they are now too old and past there BEST.Rio could join as well if utd sign a defender from montpellier,he will take on a player/coach role at the end of the season if it goes through.sam is trying to hijack readings bid for marriappa with baldock as bait.expect west ham to bid again for tevez,zaha & whittingham although all unlikely to sign.I live in Australia l am a mad hammer supporter l would defenetly want J.Cole back Pederson, A.Johnson ,K Richarson .H.Rodellega ,V.Moses and A Experience tall DefederPie in the skyDeluded hammers thinking they are a massive club that can attract top players, only just got promoted and will probably go straight down again. Dream OnWe are a Big club, bigger then all of the prem apart the 2 manchester clubs and Chelsea, Arsenal. FACT

Fegor ogude has been Given a
Conditional British work Permit.(7)(4)Ed Will this mean he is about to sign for Derby if the rumours are true? {Ed001's Note - he must be lined up for a club or he would not have been able to get the permit, so it seems likely, if true.}


21 May 2012 08:47:39
Now Villareal have been relegated, could the striking duo of Nilmar and Giuseppe Rossi make a move to the premier league?(13)(5)I would love to see Rossi back at OT. An ideal player although he has spent nearly a year injured.He's out till march 2013

It's understood that Cardiff City have bid £1.4 million + Dekel Keinan for the highly rated Rosenbourg midfielder Marcus Henriksen(5)(13)Ha ha PsG have had a 8 million bid turned down and they are oil rich.Looks good on youtube - he's not an 8mill player maybe 2.5mill max + nothing about an 8mill offer from PSG looks like a celtic target !

Reading FC - Adrian Marriappa will sign a contract early this week after the two clubs agreed a fee of 1.8m with add ons should reading stay up in the first season.(13)(14)Not a chance that Watford would bet a penny on Reading staying up - having seen you twice last year - Wolves look a good side!Yes we were obviously terrible last year. So terrible we won the league.....Reading are better than Watford. If we are the only premier league side to make an offer then he'll be off to us.Such a terrible team that we overcame a play off final defeat by winning the league the following year. Get realistic, you are just another one of those fans that talk rubbish without knowing the facts.Mariappa may be joining you, but he's away on International duty at the momentWe were so bad we conceded the least amount of goals in the league...TEAM CHEMISTRY
100 :pOuch - hit a nerve there i think - honestly if you lot think that you have even half a chance - start taking some anti psychotics now - the championship was a terrible league last year - yes you won - but look who was second - you don't have a prayer between you - you will need to spend v v v big just to stay up - name a single player in your squad who is Premier League quality - the nearest i can get is Kebe - the rest are too old or too slow or too bad!Don't worry Reading, their just jealous fans. I would give you a massive chance of staying up. Just look at the 2006/07 season, it was your first time in the premier league and everyone was writing you off straight away. But you surprised everyone by coming 8th, closer to champions league than relegation! Yes you were a bit lucky winning the league instead of us (southampton) this year, but I'm backing you next year :)Wow...kebe karacan pearce connolly gorkss leighertwood le fondre roberts mcanuff...need i go on?This Watford fan slagging Reading off. Is he for real? Take a look at the final league tableSecond Southampton a team with a bunch of history and a massive club, third West Ham, wasn't a bad year this year , was tough cause at least all top half of the teams were decent squads.Id like to point out that Kebe is nowhere near our best player, in fact we looked a better team when McAnuff took the right side and Hal Robson-Kanu took the left. You clearly no nothing about football. A teams success is not based on player ability alone. I dare you to try and find a team with better chemistry or work rate then Reading. We Reading fans will be the first to admit that we do not have the best players, but thats not what Reading is all about. Thankyou to the people that are not jealous of our success and I wish your teams the best of luck in the future as long as it does not mean relegation for us next season.Reading DO NOT want Parr, especially after he got Roberts sent off at the end of the season.I don't like kebe

Manchester United a set to complete the £3m transfer of Nick Powell from Crewe. Ferguson is looking to loan him out to a championship club as soon as he buys him. Front runners at this stage to loan him are Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest.

Manchester United are also now close to the capture of Nathaniel Clyne. To stop it from going to a tribunal, the two clubs have agreed an initial £2m fee, rising up to £3.5m depending on appearances.(22)(19)We wont sell clyne for 3mill he is worth at least 5 at the very lowest anyway clyne is out of contract so why spend money when you can get him for freeHe's under 24, so United have to pay compensation. ^We would buy him for 2m to avoid a tribunal as he stated. It is an easy way of settling a dispute, outside of court.Is Clyne good enough for United?

I guess the 3m to Crewe will save them from going under.
