Liverpool Footbal Club WILL be sold but not until after the World Cup as the greedy yanks are hoping for a successful England campaign to increase the market value of a Premier League Club!

They are panicking due to the Eurozone issue knowin that a Sterling Bid will be worth significantly lower than 6 months ago should the economic woes of Europe continue! Hence they will not accept a bid until after the WC..

Now some rumours –

The owners won't be arabic, or chinese..
the lead candidate is an Indian Billionaire and he wants to showcase the project by arranging a 6 game pre season tournament in India before the 201/2012 season with Atletico Madrid (Especially for Torres) AC Milan, Ajax, and 2 other teams to be confirmed along the LFC.

Stadium will also be built by 2014 season latest and the rumour is that they have already agreed a massive sponsorship naming rights deal with a massive indian telecoms company. (BIG CLUE TO THE OWNER)


first signings are rumoured to be following:

Silva – 90% likely Marquee signing 16mil + Riera
(this keeps torres as prestigious club record signing)

Tevez – 60% likely as if Masch goes it won't happen, but if he stays it is v likely.

and the biggest news.

Rafa out and no other than DIEGO MARADONA to take control of the realms at Anfield!

Hence the Masch n Tevez likely reunion!!


In Diego we trust YNWA

Celtic News:

A lot of the 'gossip' on this site is normally quite pish, have never posted on this but from reliable sources heres what i've got:
Neil Lennon to ake over as manager once the settlement fee with Mowbary and his staff is dealt with. Lennon has identified that it's the centre backs that are causing the team problems, he will sign St Ledger and Ramis. Nigel Reo–cocker and Jimmy Bullard are also looking to be brought in by Lennon and both bring premiership experience. Wallace of Hearts will be brught in at left back, with a re–vitalised Lee Naylor beig back up. Keane will go back to Tottenham. McCourt to see a lot more first team action.
McManus, Boruc, Crosas and Samaras all being sold.

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway is set to have contract talks over the next 48 hours, with a final decision being made on Thursday tea time. It is expected he will sign a 3 year deal with a one year option.

At the talks, Valerie Belekon is set to give Holloway £10m for wages and transfers, and with Ollies track record, he is looking likely to sign young, and sell later for a tidy profit IF they get relegated. With Karl Oyston set to build a new 5000 seater East Stand, away fans will be restriced to 1k untill the building work is complete, which should take 6 months depending on contractors.

Holloways targets are:

Adam Lallana – Southampton
Gary Hooper – Scthorpe
Garry Kenneth – Dundee United
Tommy Spurr or Mark Beevers (Both if transfer fees aren't over inflated) – Sheff Wednesday
James McArthur – Hamilton
Jack Wilshere – Arsenal (Loan)
Connor Wickham – Ipswich

The released list should be put forward once the future of Holloway and Blackpool are finalised, Friday at the latest.

Liverpool to announce the signing of striker Diego Tardelli this Friday.



25 May 2010 22:27:36
I'm sure that a comment below has just said that Paul Lambert will be given £3 to spend in the transfer window! haha.

anyway – Sheffield Wednesday are closing in on several signings.. if you go onto the sheffield star newspaper website, it'll say Irvine is in for eight free transfers.. these COULD include:

Gary Doherty
Chris Sedgwick
Liam Chilvers
Leon McKenzie (I HOPE NOT!)
David Wright
Ben Thatcher

Eddie Nolan, Darren Carter, Richard Chaplow and Neil Mellor could all join Wednesday aswell, with Irvine looking to his former employers to raid them.

Pablo Counago is still a big possibility for Wednesday – Ipswich are interested in Tudgay, and a deal which would see a player–swap would include Wednesday getting some sort of fee coming their way.

Burton Albion striker Shaun Harrad wants a move to Wednesday badly – the recent speculation regarding the Owls' interest has made him really wanna move to S6. Irvine would, however, have to pay at the bare–minimum £150,000 for him.

Leaving Hillsborough could be trio Marcus Tudgay (countless teams are intrested, with Burnley and Ipswich the most prominent admirers), Tommy Spurr (again, countless admirers) and Mark Beevers (generally wanted by Newcastle). Tudgay would fetch £1m minimum, probably more. Tommy Spurr shouldn't be sold for anything below £2m. The same applies to Mark Beevers. Irvine has made it very clear he has no intentions of selling players on the cheap and this is epitomized by his approach to the upcoming transfer window. Lee Grant is going nowhere – Wednesday have saved his career and he is paying us back with his services for the next two years, and hopefully, much longer.

Also, watch out for young winger Jack Poulton. He went to my secondary school (Firth Park College) in Sheffield and is an amazing player. Currently in Wednesday's system in the Academy, their manager Sean McAuley being a massive admirer of him and bigging him up at every opportunity – expect AI to give him a run–out in the season along with midfielder Liam Palmer and striker Vadaine Oliver – someone who I think could be a relevation this season. The Academy news is through my uncle, Sean McAuley.

More when I hear it.

We are wednesday. Forward, together.

Just seen Lionel Messi at Elland Road club shop trying on merchandise! You heard it here first!! Might aswell post this as it is about as relevant as all the other garbage on here! On to the real bizzle:
Montgomery – In
Szczesny – 80% chance
Watt – 90%
Sharp – 50%
Smith –Outside chance but could happen.
All you people talking about milner he has stated that there are only two clubs he would leave Villa for and they are Liverpool (as he has a soft spot for them) and Leeds (only if they got into prem) end of story no more garbage please! :) MOT!!

With the anticipated takeover at Torquay the new boss will be named as Paul Sturrock. He will make his first signings Chris Dagnall and Tamika Mkandwire.


25 May 2010 22:11:20

As Harry Redknapp has said, he will not be making major changes to his playing squad over the summer. He hopes to get all but one deal done before the start of the world cup.

Firstly, he is not planning on letting Keane, Jenas and Pavlyuchenko go. The only player harry will be letting go is O'Hara – but there are many clubs who have enquired so there's no clue as of yet where he will end up. Hutton will be allowed to leave, only on loan unless Harry gets an offer he can't refuse.

Harry is willing to let Walker, Rose, Caulker, Dervite and Obika go out on loan.

There will only be 2–3 players coming in. No goalkeeper will join as Gomes will be first choice and after signing a new one year deal, Cudicini will be 2nd choice. Then comes Alnwick and Ranieri.

Harry will not be signing any defenders at all. Naughton will challenge for both full back positions along with Assou–Ekotto, where suprisingly Bale will be first choice at left back and Corluka at right back. King, Dawson, Kaboul, Bassong and if reports are correct that Woodgate is back in England after a long trip to Australia, then from October he will be hopefully challenging for a place in the first team.

Harry has plenty of options on the right side of midfield with Lennon and Bentley, so there will not be any investment there. With Sandro already signed, Redknapp is still looking for a central midfielder to compete with Modric, Palacios, Huddlestone, Sandro and Jenas. The two names being mentioned are Sissoko of Juventus and Parker of West Ham. I can tell you Sissoko will be first choice and he is looking for a deal to be done before the World Cup. On the left Joe Cole will sign for Spurs, but it will be after the World Cup.

Almost done.

Harry wants 6 forwards at the club next season. Defoe, Keane, Crouch and Pavlyuchenko will be joined by the permanent signing of Gudjohnsen. The deal is all but done, but Monaco are holding out for more money than what Spurs are willing to pay, but I have been told Harry wants this deal the most out of all the deals due to his great experience in the Champions League so the deal will go through whatever the price. I've heard rumours of Dzeko, Aguero, Fabiano but the other striker Harry is going for is Trezeguet. I have also been told if that fails to go through, Harry will go for Bojan on loan after the Catalans got Villa.

If I hear any more I will post when I recieve spot on information.



25 May 2010 22:05:11

When fabregas leaves arsenal
wenger will have a budget of 70 mill to spend + maybe another 15 if certain players leave

he will bring in

Shwarzer– Cheap, Experienced and good for 1 or 2 years– cost maximum of 3 million

Cahill or Metsarker(spelling)– both get for good price and solid parenter for vermelean– either would cost around 12–14 million

David Silva and Ronaldinho– could get both for 30 mill and both world class players

so Total in– 47 Million


25 May 2010 21:56:41
To the person who said Charlie Austen isn't leaving. He will move to Newcastle for £1million but will be loaned back to Swindon Town for 1 year then will come back to Newcastle. Blackpool fans. stop kidding yourselfs saying your going to sign Micheal Owen. Fergie has already stated Owen or Berbatov will not be leaving and he will only be signing 1 player this summer not the 6 or 7 most people are saying on here. and Liverpool fans Ireland is coming to Newcastle on loan he was spotted outside St james park 3 days ago and has held talks with Ashley City will pay part of his wages. and talk of Boyd going to Birmingham is rubbish as they have almost signed Zigic. and West Brom will not get Wiltshire or Vela as both players have Newcastle and Bolton and Stoke all to choise from who are better clubs but they've choise Newcastle as they like Hughtons attitude and passion. Now down to real transfers.
Newcastles squad for next season.

GK: Harper, Krul, Slogsberg ( sorry about spelling )

DF: Taylor, Onuaho, Ebondo, Kadar, Williamson, Coloccini, Enrique, Simpson,

MID: Routledge, Nolan, Mulumbu, Ireland, Guthrie, Barton, Vuckic, Gutierrez, Mcgeedy, Wiltshire, Smith

ATT: Carroll, Lovenkrands, Vela, Boyd, Hooper,

IN –
Onuaho £2million – Man City

Boyd FREE – Rangers

Ebondo FREE – French Club

Mcgeedy £4million – Celtic

Charlie Austen £1million + loaned back to swindon

Ireland Season Loan– Man City with view to £5million pernament deal

Wiltshire Season loan – Arsenal

G.Hooper £1million+ Leon best – Schorpe

Vela Season Loan – Arsenal

Few youngsters over the season

Out –

Tozer £1.5million – league 1 club

Xisco £1.5million – racing santandor

Italian youngster £2million – parma

Best Part of the Hooper deal Schorpe

Ranger Loan Championship club

Forster Loan – norwich

Lua lua loan brighton with view to £1.5million pernament move

Charlie austen loan back to Swindon

R.Taylor £2.5million – Stoke City

These will be announced in Late June early July. as Hughton is currently on a short break with his family before heading to South Africa to watch the likes of Vela and see how Gutierrez gets on. my source is my friend is one of the groundsman at SJP also my ex girlfriend works in Shearers bar and is usually correct with her info.

25 May 2010 21:51:33
Joe ledley will not be going to rangers in scotland, we refused 8.2 m from wigan so why would he go to rangers? When Fulham , stoke , villa , birmingham , wolves , sunderland , newcastle are all prepared to pay him 50k + per week! Unless they are going to offer him at least the same, his best mate has told me its between villa/fulham. So the rangers fans can forget that one, we pay more to thompson, burke in the coca cola div than what they recieved in scotlands premier league. You also have serious debt plus a tax bill running into millions! daraid, CCFC.

Breaking news from emirates

I have been informed that sometime this afternoon Arsenal faxed forward and offer of £10.5million to palemero for Simon Kjaer.
This has been accepted(due to contract clause) and Kjaer is expected to negotiate terms.

So that is our Second Signing–Kjaer will replace Gallas.

Adams Matthews will be the replacement for Silvestre. A £4million deal was agreed in March.

Buffon and Melo at London Colney last week, having a tour. the deal is not confirmed, with wages being the final obstacle but it is 65% going to happen.Juventus will be paid 8million and they owe arsenal 6.9millon from viera deal.Melo deal is still not guranteed as Juventus want atleast £16million where Arsenal have offered £12million

Now Finally CESC

The latest from inside Arsenal is that Arsenal will not accept anything lower then 60million Euros(£55million ish), Barca have a budget of 46million for Cesc, if a deal cannot be agreed before the world cup, cesc will stay and go in 2011

my source is a member of AST who has a very close affilation with MR I Gazidis

To the person that sent:
"Talks in 'advanced stage' over UAE takeover
Former Celtic player Andy Lynch is heading up a consortium of wealthy Gulf–based businessmen to take over Liverpool."

This news is over a month old . not sure if Sheikh Saeed bin Saqer bin Sultan Al Qassimi still interested.

Major piece in the Times tomorrow from David Moores. He's written a 3000 word letter about what happened and what is going on at Liverpool and has basically said that the club is a complete mess ans that no takeover is even close! I am a huge Liverpool fan and if Moores words are true then I am absolutely gutted as it sounds like we can forget about any decent signings and brighter times ahead after the nightmare that was last season!

Can we please ban these clowns James 007 and Mr Broughton, because they are quite simply lying and that is not what this site is about. It's about football transfer rumours, not lie through my teeth about who i know!!

Anyway rumours, Milner is not joining Liverpool but they are going to sign Upson!

Blackpool in negotiations with jamaican international goalkeeper Dwayne Miller


25 May 2010 21:14:29
Man Utd – Food for Thought:

1. Sir Alex Ferguson and Jose Mourinho have an excellent relationship, and still remain close friends.

2. Sir Alex Ferguson, could be potentially looking at bringing just one more player to Old Traffold this Summer (as quoted).

3. A large majority of players heavily linked with Manchester United are Real Madrid players (Benzema, Higuain, Van Der Vaart, etc).

4. Jose Mourinho is due to take over the hot–seat at Real Madrid at any moment.

Based on the above, my thoughts are "Is SAF wanting for Jose to take his place at Real, then utilise his relationship to perhaps enquiry about some current Real Madrid players?.. I really suspect this could be the case.

Interested to other other peoples views on this.

WF Red Devil


25 May 2010 21:13:32
I just posted the news that David Moores has set a 3000 word letter to the Time regarding Liverpool and have just heard that thr Texas Rangers owned by Tom Hicks have filed for bankruptcy! This really doesn't sound good for Liverpool!

Ellis to takeover in the next week unless another substantial bid comes in. Walter Smith will stay on for a year with Mccoist and McDowell to take over from there

Rangers will then make a move for Joe Ledely as he is out of contract! His wages will be just smaller than Boyd so no problem there.


25 May 2010 20:49:57
Arsenal transfer news:

Would love to see a new 1st choice goalkeeper come in but it's looking less and less likely as Wenger seems to have complete faith in Almunia and Fabianski. However, if he did decide to bring in a new No.1 then it would have to be someone experienced so as to not hold back Szczesny and Mannone for too long.

VERDICT: No change

Sol Campbell will sign a new 1–year deal. With Gallas, Senderos and Silvestre all leaving on free transfers, 2 new CBs will be required. 1 of Gary Cahill, Brede Hangeland or Simon Kjaer will join to partner Vermaelen in the starting line–up. The 2nd CB to come in will likely be Pape Diakhate who is also capable of playing at left–back. Traore may leave in search of more starting opportunities.

VERDICT: Simon Kjaer & Pape Diakhate

Don't expect much change in midfield unless Fabregas leaves, however he will hopefully stick around for 1 more season. Provided he does, Wenger may look to add cover for Song at CDM. Steven N'Zonzi at Blackburn looks like a good bet. However, if Fabregas leaves then I would expect a couple of midfielders to come in, perhaps Felipe Melo and Eden Hazard. Fran Merida will leave on a free.

VERDICT: Steven N'Zonzi

Already confirmed that Marouane Chamakh has arrived. The only further change I can see happening would be Vela being sent out on loan. Wenger looks likely to keep faith with Eduardo in the hope that he fully recovers from injury.

VERDICT: Marouane Chamakh


25 May 2010 20:52:36
Talks in 'advanced stage' over UAE takeover

Former Celtic player Andy Lynch is heading up a consortium of wealthy Gulf–based businessmen to take over Liverpool.

Former Syrian international Yahya Kirdi, now a millionaire is said to be behind the bid and has backers from one of the United Arab Emirates ruling families. Lynch, who has been acting as a middle man in the deal, told the Daily Record:

"It's a very exciting time. Talks are ongoing with Tom Hicks and George Gillett and are at an advanced stage. We're working round the clock to try to pull it off. Everyone knows Liverpool aren't the force they once were so this is just what they need at this time. I've been to Anfield on business recently and I'm acting as the go–between in the whole deal. Hopefully it's not too much longer before it's all done and dusted."

I will not reveal my sources my tim friend, im part of a shadowy freemason filled establishment. im also a senior manager in jnr football and at hampden every week (meeting with establishment) also big muckers with a well known reporter, referee, 2 managers in spl and several in all other leagues. due to my job im in contact with lots of pro football players and their agents. although saying that the best way to get info is getting an ex pro pissed at after dinner speach! that's my sources, none of them however told me about the ellis deal – that will remain my secret. deal is being discussed now. should be done by end of next week. walter smith (the godfather) is not earning 25k or anything like it. i would think between walter, ally and kenny there earning less than that combined. he will not walk away, although there is a slim chance of him moving upstairs (ally has taken more of the games and every training session than you would think) players will be re–signed and some brought in. not massive names and anyone saying he's staying and he's going are talking crap because several players arn't sure themselves. a lot of agent talk, trying to get deals for their guys. as reported in the press re. joe ledley and martin petrov signing for gers that came from agent/s who represent them contacting gers saying their players would be intersted to listen to offers. i don't think personally that guys that will command those sort of wages would be of interest to gers as they will need prob 4 players and that would hit the budget. on a tic front, i no who's been spoken to, and 6 players that celtic has noted interest. i can tell you they aint big names either. 3 in a row

Newly promoted Blackpool FC have 3 players in mind. The rest of the £88million that they recieved for promotion from the coca–cola championship, will be spent on a new east stand, a new training facility and a new re–ferbished pitch with underfloor heating.
The 3 players in mind are:

GK – Scott Carson (WBA – 3mill)
DF – Steven McManus (Celtic – 2.5mill)
ST – Jason Roberts (Blackburn – 3mill)

Also, DJ Campbell is in the process of sorting a 3yr deal out with the seasiders after his loan spell ended yesterday.

Steven Dobbie will not return to Bloomfield Road, as he has returned to Swansea and he is in there plans for next season.

I wish everyone would stop saying celtic are in financial trouble, this is not true. this is just bitter rangers fans jelous of a team who have a bit of money. neil lennon will be appointed celtic manager once the mowbray pay out is finalised. my work mate is a good friend of neil and he told him this on saturday the day before the story about mowbray being paid off was in the paper. he also said the club have spoke about craig bellamy coming back on loan next season, but his wage demands would probley be far to high. also expect celtic to re–sign charlie mulgrew. and also expect the boy simon ferry to go straight into the first team next season


25 May 2010 20:26:00
Can we please have some Glasgow Rangers rumours on this website that regard players. I'm sick of people guessing about the takeover situation, because nobody knows for sure whats going on.

Also Walter Smith, Mcdowell and Coisty have all agreed new contracts, so now that all that's settled as well..



25 May 2010 20:26:00
West Bromwich Albion to sign micheal Owen only if he agrees to a 15k a week deal also Vela from arsenal to join on a 6 month Loan, also interests in David James, O'hara , Scott Parker, Also offerd 30k a week to robbie keane to join..

Dorrans to stay with the baggies only if they stay up, if they go down, the chairman has said he shell cash in on the player to surport the clubs money worries over the next 5 years, players wages increasing..



25 May 2010 20:27:22
Mr broughton and james007 are both incorrect! liverpool football club have indeed been sold but to a consortium..jose as yet has signed nothing at all with real madrid!! the people we are talking about here know what they want and they fully intend to get it.


25 May 2010 20:19:59
Preston North End have finally sorted out there dept problems and can get back on track for there promotion push by concentrating on there team affairs.
Deryck Shaw has finally agreed to sell Preston North End to Trevor Hemmings. The millionaire who has spent a total of £14million on the club is relieved to finally be in charge.
His first move as club owner, is to bring in a new director of football, and in the future he says that his good friend and top manager, Sir Alex Ferguson will become a director of some sort.
Hemmings is happy to give Darren Ferguson a transfer budget of £10million to start off with, but he wants Ferguson to get rid of the high earners first, such as Darren Carter and Richard Chaplow, both who have been attracting interest over the last week or so.
A few key signings have been mentioned so far, on Fergies list, along the likes of, Danny Welbeck, Nicky Butt, David Nugent and Chris Eagles are shortly going to be linking up with Preston North End in what is going to be an exciting season ahead.


25 May 2010 20:11:52
Man City want to sign 4 Everton players, Jagielka, Rodwell, Arteta and Pienaar. They have offered cash plus Bellamy, Ireland and .. Lescott!!
Jagielka is also wanted by Arsenal and Man Utd, Arteta by Arsenal and Man Utd, Pienaar by Chelsea, Spurs and Liverpool, who tried to sign him in January.
Pienaar is the most likely to leave, with Spain or Germany the probable destination. Arteta has stated that Everton will be his only EPL team and that when he leaves it will be back to Spain.
Pienaar situation is confusing, Everton made an offer, the player didn't say yes or no, but wanted to resume talks after the World Cup. Now the agent has given Everton a three week deadline to make an acceptable offer. Reminds me of the Thomas Gravesen affair, that worked out lucrative for the agent – pity his players career bombed!!

25 May 2010 19:50:48
A friend of mine says Manchester United have won first refusal on Silva. They are also determined to buy Di Maria and Defour. If Manchester United can secure a player swap then they could have 3 good players. Anderson and £10million for Di Maria. And if Berba doesn't impress during pre–season then Berbatov and £7.5million for Edin Dzeko. And possibly Carrick and £6 million for Modric(most likely turned down. They will try buying Morimoto IF Park leaves(Don't ask me who this guy is or why they would buy him) and Pienaar as a replacement for Park. My friend doesn't think all of these will transpire and still thinks Steven Defour(hope that's the right way to spell his name) will be at United sometime in his career. And that's the truth with some sweet chesse on it.

Sheffield Wednesday want Shaun Harrad from Burton Albion, and are prepared to part with £200,000 in order to get him to Hillsborough.

And for those that keep saying that your team will sign Lee Grant, you're wrong. He will not leave Hillsborough. He is loved too much by the Kop faithful.



25 May 2010 19:40:22
My mate reckons that owen will be going to Blackpool making around 35k a week. Henry just needs to pass medical to join hammers and Di Maria turned down Real Madrid to join Utd.

Angel Di Maria is a massive Man United fan, massive Man United target and has expressed major desire to make the dream move to Old Trafford. Also Sir Alex has made a point of saying that he views Angel as the missing link in the current squad. So expect a massive capture of Angel Di Maria, to Man United not Real Madrid, for £40 million. That's gonna break the bank!


25 May 2010 19:29:43
EDIT on previous post.

The "loan" of Nadir Belhadj was incorrect, just heard Forest have placed a bid of £1.75m + Nathan Tyson (£1.2m) sits back and awaits confirmation as this will be Billy Davies 1st signing of the summer.


25 May 2010 19:23:47

I am close friends with nacho and he informed me that ELLIS will not be buying rangers due to the huge debt the club have.
Most of the first team will be leaving at a fraction of the cost if they can get any bids.
NO new contracts have been or will be offered hence him leaving the club.
NO new signings will be made until all out of contract players are away then a few bosmans may come in on minimal wages.
Smith will give it till January transfer window to see if he will stay long term if there has been no buyout by then he will walk and Ally will be installed.
I really fear for the future.
When Murray was in charge he could hide the mess he was making, all of a sudden he doesn't look that much of a messiah now.

Got a few others.
James Milner will move to Man City for £28m. Villa will replace him with Jermaine Jenas and also Robbie Keane (Combined price of £15m).

Few from Fulham aswell.
Mark Schwarzer is wanted by Arsenal for around £3m.Bobby Zamora will be going to Birmingham as they continue to have a shake up, up front. Would cost about £9m. Dickson Etuhu will be off to Stoke for £4m. Hodgson wants Joe Hart (if he can get him for around £7m) Jay Bothroyd (£3.5m) and Liam Lawrence on a free from Stoke.

Newcastle want Man United duo Tom Cleverly and Danny Wellbeck on season long loans and also Steven Fletcher from Burnley and he'd cost around £5m. Ameobi is wanted by Notts forest, Leicester and Celtic and Newcastle will sell if they can get around £1.5m

O'hara to BIRMINGHAM CITY, almost done deal, 6.5 million.KRO the brummie brawler SOTV


25 May 2010 19:19:33
First off, I told you about the comment jose made about taking a holiday after the champions league final, and how the potential new owners were going to try and convince jose during this "holiday" that he is the man they would like to take the helm at anfield.
And how with the recent comments made by graham hunter, along the lines of "a club recently failed to to qualify for the champions league, and also may have new owners.."
Any proper Liverpool than with enough cerebralism can figure out the reference was to us, well their are people chasing and talking to him and mendes right now.

Mendes has had meetings with Madrid yesterday and he has had a few with inter today..and by all accounts he has a few meetings lined up with and quote "interested parties" who wish to speak about his "client".

I also stated about the new owners having takeover talks almost reaching an impasse with tom hicks, as regards to the new stadium, because hicks has a vested interest in the new stadium being built.

Some have asked me to stick my neck out, and although I thought I had on many occassions it seems obvious that to some I may not have.

So here I go.
The people who I have been in contact with mainly for the last two weeks have given various scenarios etc but the majority have more or less indicated that it's between qia/shiek Mohammed, but an interested Saudi was watching for the talks to reach a certain stage.

Now I know james007 has questioned like many of you are entitled to do so etc but this is what I am being told up until now.
Shiek Mohammed is showing strong interest
Qatar investment is showing strong interest

My contacts who have access to pcp, some people involved with barcap and some general itk's accept that until it is announced officially then even now they can still only "speculate" but.
Shiek Mohammed is still the frontrunner, according to some quarters (of which I am a part of).
Others have admitted that qia seem to have the upper hand in the takeover.
So I won't give false hope on naming them for the sake of it, but all I can say is that during a recent conversation today with a member of pcp, Liverpool have been overtaken and the owners are one of the two named above.

The only trouble is that hicks is actually holding up negotiations because he's trying to wangle not just extra cash from the development of a new stadium but he's also trying to secure himself a position similar to that of honourary president which is ironic given to what became of moores.
I still believe it's shiek Mohammed, simply to what I'm hearing, but we won't know until the few remaining problems (hicks) are ironed out.
But a deal in principle has been agreed over the last few days, and so long as there are no further problems then it should be sorted within the next week or so officially.

And the talks with jose, which the sole aim is to try and hijack the real Madrid deal is happening within the next few days..

So basic recap, we are sold.
New owners are
Shiek Mohammed
Qatar investment

Take it or leave it, but I won't post again until james007 comes back on site, it's disgusting how some have mocked his posts, he's giving you his info, and some have ridiculed to the point of harrasment, and it's wrong.

Mr Broughton

With the possibility of Paul Smith being loaned out to Charlton Athletic for the season to replace Tony Warner who was released, Forest have been looking to bring in Blackburn keeper Mark Bunn as competition for Lee Camp.
Nottingham Forest's Aquisition Panel have also been working hard sorting a left back and have been in talks with Portsmouth over Nadir Belhadj for a season long loan, with Portsmouth enquiring themselves about striker Nathan Tyson.

In response to this

25 May 2010 16:22:13

Shawcross 10 mil from Stoke [Most Likely

Try Most unlikely especially at this price!
Stoke don't need to sell so u better up the price to 15mil as already been hinted at by Coates
Plus Liverpool aint got the 15mil to spend yet due to takeover talks that will drag on too long.
And Man Utd have first chance of getting him and they will hike the price up just to stop liverpool affording him.

Stoke rumors.

Ledley– free– all ready in talks
O'Hara –4–5mil– Possibility
Carlton Cole –too expensive
Nobel –5mil– High possibility
Heskey – 2mill– if he drops his wages
Pennant– Ego too big
Nugent –2–3mil
Korren– free– in talks after the world cup
Belhadj everyone is looking at him though
Aristide Bance– 5mil– if Stoke get him there is a chance dindane will consider coming Stoke due to Bance being his brother–in–law.

These are just rumors!

To whoever wrote:

'Expect Gerrard's role the be filled next season by Aquilani or , believe it or not, Lucas!'

Don't be surprised when Lucas does fill the Gerrard role – I posted on here some time ago that this would happen – Lucas came from Brazil on the back of a Brazilian player of the year award, mainly due to his ability to get forward and create (and score a few) chances – Since arriving, he has put on the required muscle and, altho not the quickest, does have a lot of skill and ability on the ball – Mark my words, when he is released from his current role, we will see a different player –––– Player of the year next season – put money on it !

Anyway, on to real rumours – For those on here regularly, it is my wife who works in Canary Wharf for Barclays, and she confirmed last week the sale of Liverpool was complete – She has now heard that this will not be announced until after all transfers have been made, in and out, for fear of transfer fee's being inflated – but the word on the street is the following:
Benayoun – Chelsea / Man City – c£7m
Gerrard – Real – £20m
Riera – spain / germany – £5m
Aquilani – Juve / Roma – £15m
Skrtel – Juve – £12m
Mascherano – Barca – £25m
Joe Cole – Free
Ever Benega – Valencia – £8.5m
James Milner – Villa – £25m
Micahel Dawson – Spurs – £15m
Theo Walcott – Arsenal – £12m
Mata – Valencia – £18m
Van Der Vaart – Real – £10m


25 May 2010 18:11:33
Probably the first, and only, piece of reliable info you will read on this site;

Leeds United have had bids accepted for Tamas Priskin, Dale Bennet and Lloyd Doyley. A contract has been offered to Jay DeMerit and if Beckford leaves, nothing confirmed on that front, he could be replaced by Heidar Helguson.

Snoddy and Kisnorbo not leaving, £3m min for Snoddy and £7/8m min for Kis.


25 May 2010 18:14:54
Right, developments on the Simon Kjaer situation..

According to his agent, a €12m buyout clause in his contract expires tomorrow in lieu of the possibility of a half decent World Cup inflating his price. He wants a move to England so..a few calculated guesses:

He's a Liverpool supporter and Daniel Agger is his partner in crime at the Danish back, but the owners are tighter than Owen's hamstring so it's even more unlikely the move will happen the other side of the world cup if he's worth €20m by then. Rafa is unlikely to act fast enough as he needs to clear deadwood so it'll be a case of paying over the odds later in the summer if he's still available.

United, similar situation but Fergie was looking for that "one final" signing of the summer – could be him? Unless either Ferdinand or Vidic go this summer it would be unlikely as he wouldn't move to be a bench warmer. Maybe he wouldn't choose Utd over rivalry?

Arsenal need 2 centre backs to replace the outgoing 3, and Kjaer would jump straight into the line–up alongside Vermaelen. He's young, cheap and experienced. Just what Wenger likes in a player. And, funnily enough the bank balance is quite healthy to fork out the fee. Bendtner might also be an attraction (friendship not playing ability!).

If any of the 3 managers have any sense, they'll be on the phone to Palermo right now as a punt at around £10m is a better bargain than after the world cup at twice that. A deal will be forced through just to avoid the extra cost and attention the world cup is likely to bring.

Expect Kjaer to be one of these shirts (fingers crossed an Arsenal one!!) by tomorrow evening. This is a calculated guess and not a dead cert, so something to consider whilst you have your dinner.

Ok, people who are saying Charlie Austin is moving to Newcastle, Leeds, Forest etc.

Charlie is NOT leaving for at least another year. I've spoken with him in Hungerford (where he lives) and he doesn't want to move out of the area.

He has visited The City Ground, but only as a guest of Stuart Pearce who rates him highly as an Under 21 International, and the two are good friends (Stuart lives across the border in Wiltshire). There is nothing to suggest Charlie wants a move away from an area and people he loves.

IF he does move in the future, it would be to a midlands/south coast club within sensible distance.

Watford FC Outs:

Jay Demerit (Released)
Jon Harley (Released)
Will Hoskins (Released)
John Eustace (Released – set to join Ipswich)
Jordan Parkes (Free – Brentford)
Lewis Young (Released)
Billy Gibson (Released)
Scott Loach (1.7m Aston Villa, Bolton apparently are also interested but at no more than 1.2m, Spurs are not convinced by Loach yet)
Richard Lee (Released – Does not want to sign a new contract – could change his mind if Loach leaves)
Scott Severin (Free – Kilmarnock)
Jonathon Bond (Released)

Stuck With:

Nathan Ellington (Xanthi can't afford to keep him – one year left on his contract)
Matt Sadler (Watford will not play him more than the 35 games played as that activates further payment – one year left on his contract)
Jure Travner (One year left on his contract still)

Watford FC Ins:

GK Kenny Arthur (Free – Rochdale)
CB Craig Cathcart (Loan – Man Utd)
LB Andy Frampton (Free – Millwall)
CM Richie Jones (Free – Harlepool)
CM Loan (Youngster from Prem – not Henri Lansbury who does not want to come back to Watford)
R/LM Albert Adomah (250k Barnet)
CF Heider Helguson (100k – QPR)

Any remaining money from the Elton concert has been put towards player wages (esp. with Ellington on such high wages) in light of the drop in season ticket sales and the general decrease in support. The extra championship money (1.5m) used to help clubs day–to–day running costs.

These details might disappoint some Watford fans but the club has to be realistic and fight with passion and a decent size squad on low wages.


25 May 2010 17:19:45

Walsall Rumours Here:

Walsall will sign 28 year Adebayo Akinfenwa on a 2 year deal from Northampton Town. (He scored 17 goals last season and 15 the season before)

They will also sign Jamie Cureton on a free from Norwich City. Walsall will offer him a 1 year deal, but his 5k a week wages will have to take a cut if he is to join Walsall.

32 Year old Lee Hendrie will also sign but only on a 6 month contract with the option of a further 18 months if all goes well.

Former Preston North End winger Chris Sedgwick has been in talks with Chris Hutchings for a number of days now but he is considering offers from other clubs.

Other Preston North End players who is on Chris Hutchings transfer list are Richard Chaplow & Darren Carter but they have offers from Championship clubs so those deals look very unlikely.

Looks like Troy Deeney will be leaving Walsall, he has been in talks with a number of Championship clubs including Middlesbrough, Swansea and Coventry with the transfer fee being around £650,000 for the young striker. Walsall are keen for him to go to Middlesbrough because they have offered to loan him back to the Club for a year.

Julian Gray, Jamie Vincent, Alex Nicholls have all been offered new deals and will sign in the next week. There are also new contracts on the table for Mark Hughes, Rene Gilmartin, Darryl Westlake and Will Grigg. Walsall expect these players to sign soon

Richard Taundry will how ever reject the contract and sign a 3 year deal with Championship side Reading after a strong second half of the season.

From a reliable source all 100% true!


25 May 2010 17:02:11

Scott Parker is leaving Upton Park.

Oh, and before you say he's leaving to go home for tea (haha!) I have it on authority that he's off to have a medical at Man City.

Parker is not happy with the owners, and despite being praised by them he does not like the way that his friends and colleagues have been treated. He also wants to work his way back into the England team and help Adam Johnson develop.

Parker will be the first one to leave (expect £10m+ for him) and Robert Green will also be departing shortly for Newcastle, thereby allowing Fraser Forster to move to Norwich on a permanent deal.

Other players moving include:

Gabbidon – Cardiff (95% done)
Dyer – Newcastle (in talks, would go back)

Cole – Aston Villa (talks beginning soon, interested in moving. Likely to happen if Agbonlahor leaves for Arsenal)

Upson – Everton (wants out of UP, and likes David Moyes.)

Southampton are close to bringing Back Andrew Surman from Wolves. Also nicky Butt has been mentioned as a nother squad player. A right back is needed after releasing John Otsemobor and Wayne Thomas. Simeon Jackson will sign for £750,000

come on you reds


25 May 2010 16:45:25
In response to Blackpool and Birmingham rumours:
Blackpool are looking to immediately bolster their squad for a rough season ahead. DJ Campbell is targetted as a permanent signing, while expect raids at relegated and released players. Joey Gudjonsson and Stephen Jordan are targetted while Robert Koren is another target. Boaz Myhill is a top target at £2m while Peter Halmosi is another target at £1.5m. Tommy Smith, Steve Finnan, KP Boateng and Aaron Mokoena have also been targetted. Remember though, these are purely targets for Holloway, not definite signings.
Birmingham on the other hand want a quality striker, goalkeeper, central midfielder, left winger and a left back. The goalkeeper is a done deal with Ben Foster joining for £6m, while Nikola Zigic is as good as done at another £6m. The left back sees Paul Konchesky as McLeish's no. 1 choice, and with 12 months left on his current deal the Scot is hoping for a cheap £4m bid acception. CM sees Dalil Benyahia a top target with the Swedish–Algerian's great performances of late in the Allsvenskan and a fee of £3m being talked about. Finally in left wing it is no secret that Charles N'Zogbia is wanted, but with an £8m bid rejected, the fee Wigan want is said to be around £14m. So McLeish is said to be turning to a new target and guess who? Aiden McGeady has come forward yet again as a £7m target. McLeish also wants to re–unite with Kris Boyd for £6m, a proven goalscorer and could prove deadly, while a big name, big money signing is also wanted. The man being named is David Bentley in a £10m move.


25 May 2010 16:38:51
Blackpool's hope of keeping Seamus Coleman next season has been dashed, after it's emerged he will be a first team regular at Goodison next season.

Instead, Blackpool will turn their attention to another Everton full back, Tony Hibbert, in a shock move that emerged today. They hope to land the talented defender for around £3 million


25 May 2010 16:39:40
– Fabio Aurelio – free transfer to Corintians
Charles Itandje – free transfer to as far away as possible
Philip Degen , Damien Plessis, Albert Riera, Ryan Babel and possibly Jay Spearing to move on. Now we have to realistic in transfer targets, so Joe Cole, Jovanivic of Fiorentina and possibly Mata & Kajer. Talk of James Milner is deluded, we aint got that type of money.So would those idiots going about unrealistic transfer targets pleae stop talking shte!


25 May 2010 16:37:29

Steven gerrard and torres will be going no–where

gerrard – has commited himself to liverpool you would know this if you read his auto biography.

Torres – has told pepe reina and his agent he is happy and willing to stay at liverpool for another season to try and change there fortunes around.

Your right there won't be alot of big name players coming in but mata and bonega and done deals.
You also say liverpool are in debt therefor can't spend much cash neither can utd so stop dreaming about silva and benzema and all that crap.

And if someone buys liverpool BENITEZ


25 May 2010 16:22:13


Itjande free to Cavala
Cavalieri 3–4 mil to Benfica
Aurelio free

Kuyt 14 mil to Juventus
Riera 6 mil to Valencia
Benayoun 8.5 mil to WestHam/ Chelsea/ CSKA/ Roma/ Sevilla
Babel 11 mil to Galatasaray

Total 90 mil approximately


Any1 LB (Depending upon funds)

Belhadj 4 mil from Pompey

Wilson 2.5 mil from Rangers

Any1 CB (Depending upon funds)
Cahil 14 mil from Bolton [Unlikely]
Shawcross 10 mil from Stoke [Most Likely]

J.Cole Free from Chelsea [Most Likely]

Any1 AM (Depending upon funds)
Ozil 8 mil from W. Bremen
Ireland 8–12 mil from M.City [Most Likely]
VDV 7 mil from Real

Higuain 25–30 mil from Real [Most Likely]
Jovanovic Free from Standard [Done]

Total : 90 mil approximately (Considering the players with highest fee to be bought and J.cole for LW )

Net Spent 0 mil

If we opted to sign other than j.cole for LW then we will require 18 mil approximately.

Some people say that we don't have enough money to buy players, transfer funds can be generated by selling players and with mascherano, riera, yossi, skrtel, babel most likely to go. Regardless of the sale of the club or change in management some of the above listed deals will happen.
If you know how a club administers it targets you would know that the transfers do not depend solely on the manager.
Expect a busy summer at Liverpool.

David James will act as player/manager of Portsmouth next season.

His first target will be to appoint a long–term successor between the posts, and it is likely that Ben Alnwick has been sounded out.

Hi all, I mentioned the Press Conference at Carrow Road yesterday. Frustratingly, that did not happen, though talks are ongoing. Matt Phillips deal is 95% done, Jordan Rhodes is about 60%. Would be two great signings, from what I've heard from my source the signings could be announced anytime this week. Should it get to Friday, Lambert will pull the plug as I've heard he's not too keen to wait around when he can work on other targets. My source has also informed me of a player in talks from a recently relegated Premiership team. It's busy stuff! I'll keep you up to date, many thanks for the patience.


25 May 2010 15:48:40
Bristol Rovers have today agreed terms with midfielder Wayne Brown on a two–year contract. The attacking midfielder was offered fresh terms by his club Fulham but opted for a move to The Memorial Stadium, subject to a medical.

I support leeds an i work in the stadium, however ive heard nothing of any players coming in, but lets face it everyone posting rumours of big name signings this season is nonsense, alan smith won't be coming back to leeds so we can all stop hoping and dreaming there, our talisman beckford is going we all know that, but to who is still unclear, realistically we'll be signing players to keep us in the championship, not to challenge for promotion, we are not financially stable enough to make a push for promotion in this league yet, we'll be in ccc at least 3 seasons as we were in league1, the only signings weve made progress on is

watt: season loan from arsenal
neil collins: possibly permanent from preston

and where you have all heard rumours of snodgrass going i do not know but he isnt

i guess we will just have to wait untill the transfer window opens to see what other players grayson will bring in, its open for a long 12weeks he isn't going to rush to get all these apparent players you all talk about in the 1st week of it opening


25 May 2010 15:19:30
To the Barnsley, Southampton, Leeds and even Norwich fans linking their team with Robert Koren don't make me laugh, he will most likely be playing Premiership football next season one of the following will pick him up Newcastle, Wigan, Wolves, Fulham maybe even Blackpool and if they don't he's nailed on for a move to a top tier league on the continent. Dream on Championship also rans.



25 May 2010 15:10:54
Birmingham City have signed Nikola zigic from Valencia for 6m.. 30 goals in 66 apps the season before last.

Anyone got any rangers rumours about players and a new owner


25 May 2010 15:04:04
Some Tottenham fans making me laugh here, 'Shining light of English football'.
I don't think so some how. Yes they have achieved a lot this year, but being realistic its more like over achieved. Remember Everton also Broke into the top 4 in 2005 and look at them.

Onto my transfer rumours.

Gerrard and Torres to stay at Liverpool, who look like signing just jovanovic, shelvey and Mata this close season.

Utd to sign David Silva and keep Berbaflop.

Arsenal to sign Melo and Kjaer, possibility of yaya toure.

Spurs will let Pav go but Modric going nowhere no real major signings this season, they need to perform in champs league and qualify for next season if they are to attract the big boys.

Milner to Stay at Villa.

Chelsea looking at Forlan instead of overpriced aguero.

After last week annoucing that they had been in negotiations with a Eastern European footballer but had failed to agree terms, Andrija Kaluđerović has lowered his wage demands and will sign for Leeds United in the very near future. Do not know much about him except that he is a bright talent who is expected to play an important role in the Serbian National team in the future.

Andrija was spotted by Gwyn Williams and Leeds will be looking to further expand their scouting network further into the European Leagues as well..

Speaking to a few of the academy staff at Everton and they have told me all the latest at the club.

They expect Arteta to stay but Pienaar is off for 12–14m to most probably Spurs.

Expect Yobo and Yakubu also to be offloaded for 12m to West Ham.

Coming in–
Beckford– free
Ledley– free
Onohua– £6m
Bellamy– £8m
Moutiniho– £12


25 May 2010 14:29:45
Alan Smith was spotted parked outside the East Stand of Elland Road, tears in his eyes, could this be the first step for a contraversial return or a contemplation of all that has gone wrong. Watch this space..


25 May 2010 14:31:01
Jim Jefferies is extremely interested in signing Roy O'Donovan! Sunderland could sell him for as little as 200k.

Mark Reynolds of Motherwell may be signing for Preston and Hibs won't sign O'Connor so stop blowing your load over it Hibs fans :D


25 May 2010 14:31:06

Joaquin of Valencia? Are you stupid? Get a grip you clown! I was talking about 22–year–old Uruguayan forward Joaquin Boghossian to Liverpool for 10m.

Just heard from my cousin who is with chelsea reserves that yaya toure and 8million is being offered for micheal essien and chelsea don't want aguero they want forlan


25 May 2010 14:28:35
Barnsley FC are running the rule over 2 new players. An attacking Midfielder & striker from Portugal . Both players (un–named) are in the under 21's international squad. If a deal cannot be done to bring Billy Sharp into the squad , then Jon Parkin (aka THE BEAST) will return to Oakwell. Also, it looks like defenders Ryan Shotton & Carl Dickinson will be returning on a season long loan as Stoke Manager Tony Pullis wants to hold onto the pair. A deal to permanently sign Dickinson is still not out of the question though if terms can be agreed.


25 May 2010 14:25:23
Man city have bidded £65million for fabregas and will compete for his signing with barcelona. we all know man city will offer insane prices for players (100mil for kaka remember), kaka was also older and not as good as fabregas is today when compared to the age he was sold to real madrid.
i don't think barcelona will manage to sign fabregas now since barcelona cannot pay the 125mill to buy him out of his contract but city can..
in other news arsenal are in talks with mahmodou sakho, and sebastien frey is interested in joining arsenal since he declared he will leave for england unless fiorentina strenghtened their squad (which won't happen due to financial issues).

buffon will also join the premier league both keepers want to play for a top 6 club, i can see 1 joining man utd and 1 joining arsenal if im honest. maybe man city if given does't heal well.


25 May 2010 14:20:33
The two stories coming out of Spain last night were;

A more than reliable source regarding the sale of Liverpool. The club is in fact nowhere near being sold. The chinese interest has been ignored over fears about the legitimacy of the money! The club is going to the market at present to find a buyer and as such has no offer in place at present.
Transfers etc will have to go on as normal with whatever money is available. I have no rumours as there are only paper talk rumours. Only Gerrard and Torres know what they are going to do!


25 May 2010 14:13:59
Ive seen James Beattie roaming around Leeds City Centre today..


25 May 2010 14:02:18
Right firstly can I ask all my fellow Liverpool supporters to stop embarrasing yourselves. I am cringing when I read some of the rubbish you are posting on here about who we are going to sign. Face facts we have little to no money. We will not have the revenue from the Champions League, Kop holding has posted massive losses and the club owes massive amounts of debt. Be real where are we going to get the millions of pounds some of you seem to think we will be in the summer? The signing of Shelvey shows you the sort of price range we will be operating in during the close season. Even if a takeover can be brokered are you seriously thinking the first thing they will do is give Rafa and open cheque book?
Sadly this looks likely to be a painful close season and i fully expect us to lose some of our more quality players to the lure of champions league football and also to those clubs who make a genuine challenge for their respective league titles. Gerrard hasnt seemed happy for a while and you have to expect that Jose will probably end up getting his man and Torres is arguably one of the most sort after assests in world football and there will be a host of clubs looking to tempt him away. Before anyone bothers to say yeah but he loves Liverpool he also said the same about Athletico Madrid.

I was talking to someone who works at the Academy and they explained that they may attempt to forge some stronger links with Tranmere this year after Gulasci's successful loan spell last season. That can only be a good move for our up and coming stars regular first team football will be far better than them wasting their time in the reserves.

Keep the faith


25 May 2010 13:59:55

Elliot Ward has been down at Oakwell today being shown around the ground by the gaffer. Let's hope we can sign him before Donny get their hands on him. Also, the Beattie rumour is just that.. a Rumour. He has never been a target as the cost is well out of our reach. Watch this space though for news about Becchio and Le Fondre


25 May 2010 13:55:55
Any cardiff city rumors ?


25 May 2010 13:57:15
I Know someone with in Blackpool who say's that young Man City left back Ryan McGivern is joining the seasiders for a sum supposeldy totalling £2.5 million likely not to be real though but he catched the tangerines managers eye during some of Leicester live games this season where he spent the year on loan. But like I said this guys rumours are about 30 % right .


25 May 2010 13:49:12
Spurs will become the shining light of English football. Chelsea have a team assembled by greed, Man City are attemping to follow suit with their mercenary player aquisition. Arsenal will never make that final step if they continue their wage capping policy, and Man Utd are literally bankrupt.

Not only have Spurs got the best financially run business, they have built up the squad with top quality players, and have a brilliant mixture of young talent with experience. Any onto the transfers:

Players to go:
O'Hara – £6m Stoke
Hutton – £6.5m Sunderland
Jenas – £7m Newcastle
Dos Santos – £7m Galatasary
Keane – £12m Villa
Pavlyuchenko – £14m Liverpool
Crouch – £14m Sunderland
Modric – £28m Chelsea

Harry made it clear he wanted to build the team around Defoe, and he believes the other three strikers cannot are not Champions League material. So the players coming in are:

James – Free
Joe Cole – Free
Simon Kjaer – £12m
Carrick – £12m
Kenwynne Jones – £12m
Huntelaar – £14m
Ashley Young – £16m
Eden Dzeko – £18m

Already a brilliant squad and these transfers will see glory back at White Hart Lane

Villa Transfers

As a Villa season ticket holder this is my prediction for our summer transfers. Who we bring in will depend on how much money we get from the sale of Milner, otherwise I can't see there being any big signings.





Also looking to sign a goalkeeper and a cover for S.Warnock is N.Shorey does leave.

Well my nephew goes to jose mourinho's son's school, and we had him over for dinner one night and when jose turned up i had a good chat with him and he said he would only want one season at real madrid, and then will got back to england where his real passion lies! he still has unfinished buisness left with chelsea but city would be preferable. Also he intends to make moves towards joa moutihno and marco verratti !

– This event took place at my house 2 weeks before champions league final – from the man himself


25 May 2010 13:09:35
Any Hibernian rumours folks?


25 May 2010 13:06:51
100% true!!

My uncle is an agent in the northwest and says Gerrard Madrid done deal after world cup.

Also Milner deal on the cards for the pool.

Shock rumour tho– Ya Ya Toure could be moving to the scum utd when carrick sods off!


25 May 2010 13:07:00
Most ridiculous rumour, Argentine international Otamendi, courted by Real Madrid no less, to sign for Leeds United?

on a more serious note, Manchester united are actively pursuing 3 creative midfielders, Hamsik, Milner and Silva, negotiations are under way for all 3 but naturally only one will be signed.

Odds on favourite is Silva.


25 May 2010 13:07:02
Manchester City have been told by James Milner's agent that he does not want to join them and they are now about to launch a £20million bid for Mikel Arteta however I expect this to be a long drawn out saga like Lescott last year and Arteta to eventually be moved, Moyes must hate City apparently believe it or not City May be willing to offer Lescott +£5million for Arteta as Mancini doesn't rate him he has already signed Hamburg centre half Jerome Boateng for £11million to partner Toure next year and is looking for another really strong centre half in David Luiz of Benfica but they will have to fork out about £25million, there was rumours going round a while back that City wanted Vidic but I just can't see this one happening. Liverpool are preparing an offer for Stephen Ireland who has handed in a transfer request and Mancini has given the go ahead City are willing to let him leave for around £10million which could be a bargain I reckon he's worth close to double that , City could be a good place to go for cheap players this year apparently Bellamy could be joining Spurs for £8million which is just over half what they payed for him a year and a half ago, Martin Petrov is available on a free, someone will probabaly pick up Shaun Wright Phillips for around £7million and there are a number of others who could be leaving Eastlands on the cheap there are rumours that AC Milan want Robiniho but I only expect Man City to recoup about half of the £32million they payed for him likewise with Jo I doubt anyone will pay over half the £19million City payed for him so much like Richard Dunne was one of the buys of the season this year I think Ireland could be the buy of the season next as I rate him as highly as James Milner who is realistically worth about £20million but if he does leave Villa Park this summer someone is going to have to fork ou an extra between £5–10million on top of the £20 to land him where as Ireland is nearly half price.


25 May 2010 13:04:40
Boro to resign juninho as player / coach with the funds freed up by the wheater deal which is expected to be finalised friday, a real shame i love that guy


25 May 2010 12:55:13
After being omitted from the Brazil squad, Diego Tardelli will fast track his transfer to Liverpool. A £6.5m transfer fee has been agreed between Liverpool and Atletico Minieiro, and the Tardelli should arrive in the UK to have a medical and sign a contract for 5 years worth £45k per week. West Ham are also interested in his services, however the lure of a bigger wage packet and European football has turned Tardelli to Liverpool. He is set to wear #12, and will be presented to the media with Milan Jovanovic who will wear #11. This will show that Albert Riera is on his way out of Anfield. He is a target for Wolfsburg and Stuttgart, but he wants to return to Spain. Atletico Madrid will be offered his services for a fixed £7.5m price, and as Simao is on his way back to Portugal, Atleti are in the market for a new left winger. Nadir Belhadj will be the signing that cuts the costs. He will sign for £3.5m, and Liverpool could send Jay Spearing to Portsmouth on loan. Martin Skrtel has agreed a deal with Lyon to sign for the French Giants. His transfer involves £11.5m, however Lyon also want to take back Damien Plessis in the deal. This leaves a hole the Liverpool defence. Rafa has targeted Gary Cahill as his main objective, and is ready to beat Arsenal by bidding £15m plus Stephen Darby(optional) on loan. Rafa wants to inject some English blood in the squad and sees Cahill as the perfect signing. Javier Mascherano is off to Real Madrid for £32m, and will be replaced by Ever Banega. All this talk about there being a release clause of £8.5m is rubbish. His release clause is actually £18.5m, and this will be met by Liverpool. Ryan Babel is off to AC Milan. He left the Holland training squad through injury, but got on a plane to Milan, not Liverpool, to agree a deal. The fee is £10m. He will be replaced by Juan Mata. He will be the highlight of Liverpool's summer. Mata has realised that Valencia will never break the dominance of Barcelona and Real Madrid and wants to move out. Obviously it is a similar situation with Liverpool, but he likes Rafa Benitez and wants to move to a Spanish contingent, as he feels he could adapt better. He will cost £18m. Joe Cole is a possibility to sign on a free transfer also


25 May 2010 12:55:46
Oxford are desperate to secure the signature of ex fan favourite Andy Burgess.


25 May 2010 12:48:43
Jobi McAnuff to Blackpool for £500,000. Been seen in the area in a black Range Rover, with his agent former Palace player Tony Finnigan.


25 May 2010 12:49:21

If Jose joins Real Madrid he is looking to sign Joe Cole as he is on a free. Jose is an admirer of COle and the only reason he never signed him for Inter was becuase of his injuries, now however he is more interested as he is fully fit and ona free.


25 May 2010 12:52:10
Any Newcastle united rumours thanks ?


25 May 2010 12:54:26
"Joaquin to Liverpool 10m"
What, Joaquín Sánchez Rodríguez? The fat one at Valencia? Who only played 20 matches for them last season? Who hasn't played for Spain for three and a half years? Have you been in your bedroom on CM for the last four years?

Onto real Liverpool rumours..

Gerrard to go to real for 25m, not 30–50m as others are stating (don't forget, he's 30 on sunday). Aurelio and Itanje leaving on a free, Degen back to anyone in Germany, Riera to anyone who'll have him.
Not many coming in, besides the ones already signed, but Rafa may try to get another left sided midfielder (NOT Milner..why would they accept 15m plus babel, when they've already turned down a straight 20m?), possibly Arda Turan if a deal can be done to send someone the other way plus 10–12m, The Carlton Cole rumour has legs as the transfer would benefit both sides. Expect Gerrard's role the be filled next season by Aquilani or , believe it or not, Lucas! Aurelio won't be replaced as Rafa wants to try to bring more players through from the youth/reserve setup, to ready the club for the changes in the amount of "foreign" players a club can field.

25 May 2010 12:42:28
Subrata Pal who plays for Pune FC is a target for Luton and Bradford.
The Indian International goalkeeper is thought to be sort after as the clubs involved are in large asian area's and it could well bring in more supporters and revenue to the clubs.
Pal however isn't to sure of a move to England as he doesn't want to sit on the Bench for any team.
My opinion is that he will not leave unless 1st team football was guaranteed.


25 May 2010 12:40:10
Every summer I hear all sorts or rumours, most of them are poop, some are guesses and some are genuine knowns.
Well my source is telling me this, and he's been bang on for the last 2 years.

In: SWP, Owen, Carrick and Yaya Toure plus a centre half unidentified.
They will also make a serious bid for Joe Hart.
Out: Fabregas to Barca, Gallas to AC Milan, Eduardo to Valencia, Fabianski to Wolves

Man Utd:
In: Benzema, Van Dar Vart, Robben or Silva, Dan Gosling
Out: Carrick to Arsenal, Owen to Arsenal

In: Dzeko or Aguero, Benayoun, Balotelli
They will also try and sign Torres and Joe Hart.
Out: Deco free, Cole to Liverpool, Ferreira, Ballack is another possible casualty.

U.A.E Investors will but the club before July 1st but that will not signal loads of money, instead Rafa will have to show he can manage funds effectively first, he will not be sacked straight away but a poor start WILL cost him his job and Kenny Dalglish will be installed as Temp Boss until next summer.
Ins: Joe Cole, ATardelli, Milner, Wilson, Cahill, Javi Martinez, Arteta, Zigic and Parker.
Out: Spearing to Leciester, Auriellio Free, Babel to Aston Villa, Degen Free, Cavellieri Abroad, Benayoun to Chelsea, Mascherano Inter/Barcelona, Gerrard Real Madrid, Lucas to Juventus, Rieira to Galatasary, Kyriagkos to Glasgow Rangers,


25 May 2010 12:39:13

You would know how to spell his name then.And even if he was your friend you wouldn't be stitching him up by name on a free website!

Ireland is not coming to MU.

we will be signing a creative midfielder to aid with goals. Will be 1 good name signing and 1 young player..

Silva will be coming. Forget this Real Madrid nonsense. SAF tried to sign him for 20M about 2 seasons ago, but it was rejected..


25 May 2010 12:35:25

Most Likely Deals;

Watt (Loan)
Arsenal Keeper (loan)

25 May 2010 12:29:03
Luton Towns young 20 year old striker Ryan Charles is a shock target for Championship club QPR.
Charles who has had loan spells at Hitchin, Kettering and Kidderminister is out of contract and would only cost a nominal fee as a panel wouldn't request that they pay alot due to his lack of 1st team games at Luton.
QPR see him as a good young prospect and being that he can also play on the wing or in an attacking midfield role they see him as an ideal back up for numerous roles at the club.

25 May 2010 12:06:08
Liverpool will be making a series of smart moves this summer as part of their drive for building for the future.
Martin Skrtel is wanted by Juventus, who are willing to pay up to £12m for the Slovakian. This money will be spent on his replacement Simon Kjaer – who has a release clause to foreign clubs(non Italian) of €12m, or around £10.3m. Rafa will have Carragher, Agger, Kjaer, Kygriakos and Wilson at CB
Fabio Aurelio is leaving on a free transfer – too injury prone to warrant new contract, Rafa will use Insua, Agger and soon to be signed Danny Wilson(£2.75m) at Left Back
At Right Back – Phillip Degen will be sold for around €2m, and replaced by academy graduates Stephen Darby and Martin Kelly
In Midfield, Javier Mascherano is now definitely going to Barcelona, as the Fabregas deal will not be concluded unless Barca can sell a number of players. A €30m offer has been made, Rafa will only sell for €50m. Fabregas will sign at Barca next season for €60m. With this money, Rafa already has a agreement with Valencia for Ever Banega €10m to replace Mascherano. A €15m+Albert Riera bid will be made for Juan Mata. Arda Turan will arrive for €13.5m from Galatasary. Yossi Benayoun will leave for Chelsea (£8m) to replace Joe Cole – who Liverpool also want to sign. Steven Gerrard is considering an offer from Real Madrid, to work under Jose Mourinho. A bid of €40m will be rejected – Liverpool wants £50m! If the transfer goes ahead, James Milner £24m and Stephen Ireland £8m will be signed. A €18m bid for Javi Martinez will be made and accept (Good relationship with Bilbao after San Jose deal) CM–Banega, Lucas, Aquilani, Javi Martinez. RM – Milner, El Zhar. LM – Mata, Babel. AM – Arda Turan, Stephen Ireland.
Up Front, Torres is not leaving this season – but he will consider his position if Gerrard leaves and no suitable replacements are signed. A contract has been offered to Adriano as he is available on a free transfer, he will partner Torres upfront as Rafa moves to a 4–4–2 formation. ST – Torres, Adriano, Kuyt, N'Gog, Nemeth.


25 May 2010 12:03:15

Another rumour is that Kiko Macheda could be sold to an either Porto or Barcelona both of whom are monitiring. This is spurred on by Macheda having to make way for new signing Hernandez.



25 May 2010 11:59:35
Luton Town's Tommy Craddock will join Scthorpe for £200k plus clauses.

Keith Keane joining Charlton for £100k to stop the tranfer going to a panel as he is under 24.

Warren Cumming who is on a free from Bournemouth is said to be in talks with the club and if he joins Fred Murray may join Barnet for a nominall fee.

Jordan Steward is joining Hitchin on loan for the season due to the link up with both clubs with Adam Watkins also joining him.

also 32 year old Midfielder Bentley who is on a free from Shrewsbury is in talks with the town and if he signs Kevin Nicholls will be allowed to leave the club for free.

Last one is that Andy Burgess is going to re–join the club after leaving in Janurary to join Mansfield.

Liverpool Transfer News:
Before I start, I would like to remind people of Rafa's objective's this season; The big man wants to sell the deadwood ie those who don't want to play for or don't give 100% for Liverpool and bring in those who will and some good English players.
David Martin – Free (Done deal. Gone to MK Dons).
Charles Itandje – Free (Will join Kavala for nothing. Good riddance).
Fabio Aurelio – Free (Been saying this for a while now, Italy is his likely destination with Roma and Juventus both hot on his heels).
Phillipp Degen – £3m (Has shown he isn't a bad player but Liverpool isn't for him and will go back to Germany).
Martin Skrtel – £10m (Rafa sees Skrtel as more of a hindarance than a help. Juve again really interested and see him as Cannavaro's replacement).
Mikel San Jose – £3m (Bilbao done deal).
Damien Plessis – £2m (Somewhere in Italy, constantly hearing Bari).
Javier Mascherano – £30m (Wants the move to Barca and will be Xavi's replacement).
Albert Riera – £5m (With Silva leaving soon, he's his replacement).
Nabil El Zhar – 500k (a big Blackpool target now they are a prem side).
Krizstian Nemeth – £10m (The reason why AEK have taken the guy on another season's loan is to prove he's worth the money after a cracking season).

Nadir Belhadj – £3m (Cheap attacking full–back. Will provide good cover for Insua).
Simon Kjaer – £12m (Skrtel's replacement and wants to play for Liverpool).
Danny Wilson – £3m (Rangers need the money, Liverpool see this young lad as Carra's replacement).
Jonjo Shelvey – £1.7m (Charlton wonderkid with 48 apps at 18).
Arda Turan – £11m (Boyhood Liverpool fan, good goalscoring winger).
James Milner – £22m + Babel (This move will take time as it can only be complete when a takeover happens).
Milan Jovanovic – Free (Wants to prove himself and will provide cover for both Arda and Torres).

So the line–up next season is:
GK – Reina / Cavalieri
LB – Insua / Belhadj
RB – Johnson / Darby / Kelly
LD – Agger / Kyrgiakos / Ayala
RD – Carragher / Kjaer / Wilson
LM – Gerrard / Lucas
RM – Milner / Shelvey
LW – Arda / Benayoun
RW – Maxi / Kuyt
AM – Aquilani / Pacheco
ST – Torres / Jovanovic / N'Gog

A side that is capable of hitting the top 4 again, question is can Rafa get this side to play and gel in time.

Rumours going around at Chelsea that Aguero will sign in the next 2 weeks. No idea about the fee but my uncle who has recentley signed as a youth coach thinks that Kalou will be part of the deal.

Right, don't shoot me down on this, but I've been told by a friend who works in the media in London that the following is gathering a lot of steam: if it's not right, just correct me, no need to flame away as I'm not saying its gospel..just interesting..

Real Madrid have now seemingly signed Angel di Maria; part of the agreement, so I was told, is Real have contacted SAF and told him that if he does NOT bid for di Maria, then Real will either a) step aside and allow MUFC to bid for David Silva or b) allow MUFC first option on Rafael van der Vaart. My contact tells me if the latter, we would be able to sign VDV for around £14.5million as a 'gentlemanly gesture' by Madrid.

My contact also advised that if Jose takes over at the Bernabeu, he is willing to allow Benzema to join MUFC on loan for a season due to wanting to bring in Dzeko from Wolfsburg.

Anyway, like I said, just a rumour I guess.


25 May 2010 10:31:40

I second "news from the Grove", Saba Al Khair, you haven't got a scooby–do mate.

NFTG's rumours + Simon Kjær of Palermo for £10–12m as if we lose 3 defenders, Wenger shall look to pick up him and Gary Cahill (with the said loan of Wilshere as a sweetener) to sure up the d–fens.

No falling down next season. IWWT

LFC Rumours

Ive been told by a reliable source source that ownership will be resolved in the next week or so. Not sure whos buying the club but I know interest has been high.

Torres Will be staying but Gerrard could go as reported he is going to consider his options after the World Cup. He has always made it clear he would play for Jose one day and Real Madrid maybe the perfect move for him.

Liverpool would cash him in for a younger looking team. Gerrard would cost Real £40 million or £20 Million Plus Higuain.

Rafa would use the remaining money to get Milner. Also Looking at Ireland Warnock and J Cole.

Other likely rumours:
– Real will offer $50 million plus Benzema for Rooney – this will be turned down
– Barca – Arshaving will sign for 20 million as Cesc move is off
– Inter – Will sign Ballack Podolski and Ryan Babel with Klinsmann taking over


25 May 2010 09:56:07
This summer will be usual speculation about old firm transfer targets which will not happen as rangers are skint and nobody in the right mind would come to celtic from england..or rangers for that matter. i had a right laugh this morning when i saw the front page of the they really expect kris boyd (a rangers fan) to go directly from rangers to celtic. the story said boyd would be celtics joint highest earner at 30k a week + a £1million signing on fee! Samaras will also stay even though palermo are intrested. Joe ledley won't be signing for either side of the old firm as rangers have no money and ledley is prem material and will surely be playing there within 3 years even if cardiff don't make the big time. Fabio Cappelo will not be taking over inter milan by the way, so don't worry england fans..but he won't win you the world cup anyway
arsenal: arsenal have never bought big in the tranfer market since 2001 when they signed 5 or 6 players. even if fabregas goes for a large fee they will not splash out on 4 or 5 players. Why would juan roman riquelme ever sign for arsenal? if he couldn't settle in Spain (even though spanish is his first language and he was playing with other south americans at villarreal) how would he settle in London?

25 May 2010 09:36:53
News from the Grove –

First up to SABA AL KHAIR who wrote an "exclusive" sadly mate most of what you wrote it bollocks. If you are going to come on here and slag off what other people write at least get the names and info of players right! The Polish keeper we have is Szczesney not Schwoigller. The french midfielder who we are interested in is Gourcuff not Gouffran. They play for the same club but are two very different players in both style and quality. We have never been interested in Gouffran. As for Gourcuff HE turned us down to sign for Milan. We didn't "choose not to sign him".

Now onto actual rumours from sources inside the Grove.

No offers yet for Cesc. Cesc has made it clear that while he would ideally like to leave he will respect Arsenal's wishes and continue to give 100% to the club if they don't sell him. Barce can't afford the £55m price tag that Arsenal have privately decided would be enough to sell him.

Ins –
Hart (8m) – number one target, but Frey is also an interesting target for a similar price. Wenger may look to cut a deal with Frey if Hart impresses at the WC.

Cahill (12m + Wilshere loan) – already pretty much done deal should be announced in a few weeks when it is confirmed that Gallas is leaving

Palombo (9m) – destructive midfielder in the mould of Gattuso.

Chamakh (free) – already confirmed.

Outs –
Merida/Gallas/Silvestre/Senderos (free)

Eduardo (8m) – Lyon look likely to seal a deal, if Wenger's primary two GK targets fall through Wenger might look to do an exchange deal for Lloris.

Vela/Wilshere/Szczesney/Bartley/other kids – Loans


25 May 2010 09:37:31
Newcastle are trying to sign Tom Cleverley from Manchester United on a season long loan deal, also they are trying to sign his team mate Danny Welback on a season long loan deal.

Newcastle are also in the market for West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu has he only has one year left on his contract.

What a pipe! Villa fan, deluded manc more like. For one, you can't get a plane from Luton to Manchester, two it would be faster to drive and three, surely he's heading back to England's training camp.


25 May 2010 09:06:13
To whoever posted this..
Plymouth argyle have agreed a 1 year rolling contract with bruce rioch who will only be able to mainly bring in free transfers and loan signings one of his first jobs will be to find replacements for ashley barnes who is wanted by brighton southampton and millwall.

I can confirm that Rioch isn't on the boards shortlist and they are still keen on bringing Jewell to Home Park. Also Ashley Barnes brought a new house down here recently so it is unlikely he is going to leave.


25 May 2010 09:07:16
Reports coming out of Chile is that Eduardo Jesus Vargas Rojas is expected to arrive in England by the end of the week to sign for Notts County. His current club Universidad de Chile are believed to have accepted his desire to leave to try his luck in England.

Blackpool trawling for cheaper players..

Interested in

Lee Wallace (Hearts) – £3m
Mark Reynolds (M'Well) – £2.5m
David Goodwillie (D'Utd) – £2.5m
Kris Boyd (Gers) – FREE

Holloway will make Boyd their highest paid player in History on £30,000 per week and a five year contract.


25 May 2010 09:16:17
A few more rumours for you. Ebanks Blake from Wolves is a target for Blackpool as Holloway had him at Plymouth, Wolves want about £2m for him. Holloway is also keen on Scott Sinclair on a season long loan, he's known Sinclair since Bristol Rovers days and also had him on loan at Argyle.

Rafa Benitez also wants Giuseppe Rossi at Anfield, although he could be put off as Villareal want £15m. And finally Fabregas will complete his move to Barca for £32m with Sergio Busquests heading for the Emirates.


25 May 2010 09:17:35

As a passionate Gooner, I am fed up on people stating Arsenal will buy 6+ players ranging from Buffon to Benzema etc. Pease give information which is at least remotely true otherwise this whole section will be a social wishlist calls.

Wenger NEVER buys more than 3 players except in 2001 when he bought : Campbell, Jeffers, Van Bronkhourst, Pires, Lauren etc. David Dein went crazy with the Credit card that summer.

Cesc will sadly go as he wants to win trophies and Arsenal have not for 5 years now.

From sources the 3 players most likely in : FACTS

1. Mexes (Centre half) Experienced, willing to come, within correct price range (up to 12 million)

2. Cahill (Centre Half) Young, skillful, Premier League experience, lots of potential (more advanced stage of career than Smalling of Fulham)

3. Scharzwer (GK) Experienced, good age at 37, will not stand in the way of Schwoigller (Polish keeper), willing to come, cheap price also.

If Cesc goes to Barcelona, then expect one more signing such as :

Hazard for 17 million


1. Buffon (Will not leave Juve as he loves the club..a rare breed of professional left) Also, Arsenal will not pay the Wages of 100 k plus

2.Gouffran (Wenger could have bought him 2/3 years ago at 6 million but chose not to. He WILL never buy players whom he has refused to buy before when players were cheaper).

3. Yaya Toure : This one is so obvious not happening yet people are so silly and short minded when saying he may come. Yaya Toure had a trial at Arsenal in 2003 (maybe 2002) and Wenger said no. So why will Wenger pay 10 million plus now ? Please be logical folksNEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.

4. No more strikers now..Wenger has 4/5 already so why spend money on more of them. This is a positive part of last season so no more signings here.

5. Hart / Green : No CHANCE. Wenger could have bought them 2/3 years ago and declined. If they were then BIG teams would be in for them. No one really wants them apart from mid table teams. I rest my case.

The above are genuine facts and not just some silly made up fantasies. I love Arsenal but I am using the limited information from my sources at the club.

I rarely write here, but today is an EXCLUSIVE.

In Arsene we Trust !!!

Regarding Celtic finances I too have been told of serious conversations about lack of money this is why Lennon will get job and the delay in settling mowbray pay off. Part of the reason for this is Celtic were investigated by the inland revenue and forced to pay back millions this was never picked up by the press? This has meant that several players were forced to pay back wages to the club and will now be leaving the club as they felt hard done by. Hinkel, samaras, boruc and mcgeady will be sold with low cost replacements brought in Conway, Bamba and bryson being looked at.

Liverpool owners have recieved on offer from an unknown billionaire from the United Arab Emirates, it seems quite strange that Benitez was apparently offered £4million a year plus a £5million golden welcome to coach the U.A.E. only two days ago, I think they want rid of Benitez with Milan his most likely destination but if he does go I expect Javier Mascherano to be his first signing.Guus Hiddink has been contacted about the possibility of taking over at Anfield and all of this could mean nothing as this deal might fall through because Hicks is being a stubborn prick apparently him and Gillet are happy with the offer but Hicks had contracted an American firm to build the stadium which he has a large stake in might I add and he wants his firm to build it but the new owners have there own people in place and are not willing to hand one of Hicks companies a building contract worth upwards of £300million when they could have it done for much cheaper .


25 May 2010 00:12:54
Arsene Wenger will try to replace Barca bound Fabregas £40 million, with Yoann Gourcuff for £17.5 million this will trigger his buy out clause, if this fails then Javier Pastore of Palermo for £16 million.He is the next Riquelme absolutely superb talent and was excellent in his debut 5–0 win against Canada.Wenger will sign kjaer for £10 million, Sakho will not be coming as they PSG want £25 million.Final piece in jigsaw will be Felipe Melo for £15 million from Juventus.

Net spending Gourcuff, Kjaer, Melo £42.5 Million

With Pastore, Kjaer and Melo £41 million.


24 May 2010 23:50:04
Fulham want South African player Tiko Modise from Orlando Pirates. He is best mates with current fulham player kagisho dikagoi and will play in the world cup. He is extremely highly rated in South Africa. an offer of 4 million pounds would be accepted.

Blackpool look likely to bid for American full back Steve Cherundolo from Hannover after they were relagated from the bundesliga. he will be a free transfer.

Wigan will sign Hondurans Emilio Izaguirre and Amado Guevara from Montagua of the Honduras national league. They have a big scouting network in central america and these two look set to join up with current honduran wigan players maynor figueroa and hendry thomas. a joint 6 million pound bid should be enough.


24 May 2010 23:52:06
There could be trouble in paradise after all, Jose mourinho is demanding full control of the transfers, both in and out, and the starting 11.traditionally the president picks the transfers and teams , and the manage does the coaching, don't ask me why, that's just the way it is .
Jose's targets :
maicon 23 million
a. Cole 17 million
milito 24 million

Perez's targets
di Maria 20 mil
evra 20 mil
David silva 19.5 mil
gerrard 30 mil .

I think, with the possibility of new ownership at anfield , they will want a new manager, and they will want the beat. How much would the special ones status increase if he turned Liverpool back into title winners ..
One thing for sure pellegrini is definately out !

Re; the guy who posted that Celtic were in financial trouble, I heard that rumour a few months ago but it didn't get posted on here.Apparently, its all to do with the state of the Euro currency and all the Irish investors are pulling their money out of Celtic as they lost a lot of money during the last 2 seasons which won't be recouped especially with season ticket renewals down drastically this year and the image of a half empty Celtic Park is not what they want to see, hence the deadline for renewals has been extended until the end of July
