An insider at VP last night has revealed Alex Mcleish was ready to quit for the good of the team, however Randy Lerner talked him out of it and to stay on for the remaining three games, if relegation is avoided, then Mcleish will quit and Lerner will pay him up for the remaining time of his contract as a bonus for keeping them in the Prem. Biggest gamble in Aston Villas history.......(16)(8)

It seems DARREN FERGUSON is putting a bid in to re-sign midfielder PAUL COUTTS from Preston. Coutts who has been very un-happy at the club since new manager Graham Westley arrived and should be available to leave the club for a nominal fee. Ferguson has twice worked with Coutts with great success.(12)(3)Here we go again change the record paul coutts is the most popular name on this site.I can see Coutts leaving this season as his relationship with Westley has soured after he threw him out of the team for standing up to him. Shame as he's been the best player on the pitch this season. I will be sorry to see him go.We had him at Posh before and he definitely has ability, I'd welcome him back...Please stop coutts will not sign for posh ,he will stay at pne next season unless a big offer comes in for himHow about £250k for Coutts and then you can pay that businessman thats taking Preston to court.Never pulled any trees up for me.

Leeds boss Neil Warnock is in talks with five players with a view to sign them before pre season.
Warnock is wanting to sign Nottingham Forest midfielder Chris Cohen. The former Yeovil player is subject of an undislcosed bid from United and Cohen is set to hold talks with Warnock.
Bournemouth captain Adam Barrett is also in talks with Leeds. The 32 year old has impressed a number of Championship clubs this season and with a number of defender set to leave Elland Road, Barrett could sign on a three year deal for around £250,000.
Warnock is also keen on going back to his former club QPR to bring Luke Young to Leeds. Young hasn't played much under Mark Hughes at Lorfus Road and could join on a season long loan.
Another player being linked with the club is Stoke midfielder Glenn Whelan. The Irish player is someone at City who hasn't played as much as he wants to at The Britannia and could sign a permanent deal next season.
Finally, 23 year old Lokeren striker Alfred Finnbogason could join for around £500,000 on a three year deal. He is currently on loan in Sweden but is keen on a move to England to cement his place in the Iceland national squad.


"Glenn Whelan. The Irish player is someone at City who hasn't played as much as he wants to at The Britannia", Ye just 26 games in the league, 37 in all competitions. Think someone is making this up!


He isnt out of contract he would never go to leeds utd


bournemouth only spent £40,000 on barrett so why would his value of gone up to £250,000(5)(27)I believe cohen is still recovering from crucaite ligament or some such long term injury. not worth the risk right nowOh yeah, Barratt to Leeds, who in turn sell Snodgrass to Bradford ;-)Whelan just signed a new contract after turning down a move to Wolves in Jan.........get your facts right.Whelan has signed a new three year deal with Stoke earlier this season.

Derby County

Ins - Jack Robinson - Liverpool (Loan)
Marc Pugh - Bournemouth (£350,000)
Charlie Austin - Burnley (Possible Loan)

Outs- Paul Green - Middlesborough (Free)


Charlie Austin, possible loan? Idiocy at it's finest.


You on cloud cuckoo land, no way that Charlie Austin is going out on loan, if we sell Jay Rod, he will be our main striker


As a Derby fan I believe jack Robinson and pugh could happen but austin no chance


pugh will never leave for as little as £350,000(2)(17)There ment to sign konneke

Charlton News

Charlton have signed 10 new players but all are schoolboys joining the U18 squad.

They are looking for 7 - 9 new first team players in the summer to replace the same number who will be leaving. Most will be cherry picked from league 1 sides who miss out on promotion.

Charlton's plan to launch a Nike kit has fallen through and the Club is now desperately looking around for a new manufacturer. A new sponsor, an FX dealer, has been found but no announcement will be made until the kit deal is sort.

Plans to rename the Valley have been rejected as no one was willing to pay the £2m asking price.

Glenn Tilbrook and the Red Devils will join Charlton's Championship celebrations on 5th May(5)(5)10 players signed from youth to accademy, fact its on the website.

I heard 6 new players, one being an established big name striker from Chamionship team. I'm hoping for Charles Austin, tore us apart in playoffs last season.

The only FX dealer I know of in the Area is Tullett (the family live in Orpington).

I heard Red Devils too but, I wish they'd spend that money on new players.

As for renaming the valley, its news to me.Plans to rename the Valley have been rejected as no one was willing to pay the £2m asking price.

Not quite, the rename was proposed to get around the new financial rules. It will not be popular with the fans and has been reconsidered however, it may still go ahead if no other method of injecting cash within the new rules can be found.

Barcelona have won the race to sign Brazil prodigy Neymar - and reports claim he will sign for them for around £50m in 2014.

The Santos forward is one of the most sought after stars in the world and the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Real Madrid have all claimed an interest in him.

But it appears Barcelona have done enough to convince Neymar to join them, having agreed a deal in principle to pay Santos a quarter of the transfer fee now and then the rest when he moves to Europe.

Neymar has spoken of his eagerness to remain in South America for now - something that Barcelona are willing to adhere to - and such an agreement has swung the deal in the Catalan club's favour.

Spanish radio station Cadena SER claim the transfer is a done deal, with Neymar, 20 set to move to the Nou Camp for the 2014/2015 season.

Wagner Ribeiro, Neymar's agent, helped broker the deal and Barcelona were keen to push things forward when it appeared that Real Madrid were ready to make their move.

Madrid's failure to land Neymar will lead them to Lucas, the Sao Paulo star that has been tracked by Manchester United.(14)(5)


25 Apr 2012 16:21:28
I know it was a while ago now but when I was watching the Athletic Bilbao-Schalke match I was very impressed with Schalke's Greek defender Papadopoulos, anyone know if their is any interest from clubs/anyone likely to make a move on him during the summer?(0)(2)

James constable(6)(26)With no money?Marlon Pack will not be going to PLYMOUTH not a chance he has already agreed verbally with Swindon Town, his best Friend Matt Richie is at Swindon, he wants to play in League 1, i have no doubt Plymouth will be up near the top next season still have a lot of building to do going in the right direction nice club....With what money , may I ask ?Crayole? Who the hell is that?!

I take it you mean Carayol? He's not going to Plymouth, not a hope in hell! Laughable transfer targets if you think any except the top two will come off.

Someone's having a laugh.

Cheltenham Town are reportedly interested in signing Doncaster outcast El Hadji Diouf in the summer, as well as making a £150k bid for Barnet striker Izale McLeod.
Boss Mark Yates was also spotted at Oakwell in midweek, reportedly interested in bringing Craig Davies on loan to the club.
A lot of interest has been generated over Robins midfielder Luke Summerfield; with Southampton his preferred destination on a free transfer.
Finally, former Robins midfield star Grant McCann was spotted at the Abbey Business Stadium, with the Gloucestershire club set to make an auacious £200k bid to bring the Peterborough captain back to the club.(1)(28)Keep on Dreaming non of them will go to CheltenhamNothing happening at Oakwell midweek so that one a non starter can,t see other mentioned players dropping down & for less moneyNearly choked on my food about that McCann tosh. Unbelievable. The captain of an upcoming Championship club who probably takes the best set pieces below the PL is not going to an awful league 2 nothing club. And that price is an insult to someone of McCann's quality. Stop posting c.What a load of ! Diouf playing for Doncaster? Not the best of rumours....Give over davies is going nowhere we havent got a striker after him....Are you on drugs?

Reading FC have shown interest in both Clyne and Zaha for a total of 8 Million. This is from BBC sport rumours and the Daily Mail.

Reading have also shown interest in Dame N'Doye who would be a quality signing for any premiership team, as he is probably FC Copenhagen's most prolific player.

Kieran Richardson is also an interest for 2 Million.

There has been NO Reading interest in Doyle, and IMO would be a poor signing.

Reading Boy Jake(21)(12)There is a lot of interest in both Clyne and Zaha so would be very surprised if they went for a combined fee £8 million.Why would they go to reading who have no fans a will be up for one season .hope saints and west ham go up proper fans unlike reading boro mike^^ sorry a boro fan?
oh dear nice home attendances this year congrats^I guess someone is bitter/Jealous.We took 1300 fans to reading you took 270 to us u never had any fans not bitter just realistic BoroRealistically you (boro) will be playing championship football again next season with even poorer attendances. FACT!I see a lot of the green eyed monster in other fans when it comes to Reading. Boro fans can keep their half empty stadium. Us Reading fans will look forward to premiership football. As for why we only took 200 odd fans to Middlesborough. Can you blame us no one wants to go to Middlesborough.Look at the facts boro mike Reading had an average attendance of 19,200 this season boro could only manage 17,500. Must be a result of being the third biggest club in the north east!

Think someone is making this up!He isnt out of contract he would never go to leeds utdChris Cohen: major injury at Forest has put him out for the season. He hasn't kicked a ball in anger for months but if he can make it back to his pre-injury form, the likes of Leeds wouldn't be able to afford him.Forest won't be selling any players until the new owners are in place and sc knows how much he has to play with. Then I would be very surprised if Cohen went to you after spending last season injured.
Oh and thanks for the seven goals. Really enjoyed our trip to your place lolThat would be great they could all us there free bus passes to get to thorp archBarrett is useless and this comes from a bournemouth fan he cant even make it into our struggling team and he isnt our captain most of our fans would let you have him for free.


25 Apr 2012 13:46:31
Leicester boss Nigel Pearson has made a £4 million bid for Leeds attacker Robert Snodgrass.(5)(37)Haha... as ifWhy would he want to go there best thing out of leicester is kasabian/pork piesIf Snodgrass goes, it will be to the Premiership.


25 Apr 2012 13:44:37
Stoke City are moving fast, to try and give Karl Henry and Matt Jarvis a Premier league lifeline. With Wolves recent relegation to the Championship they will be looking to jump a sinking ship very quickly, Henry is settled in the midlands and believes there is some unfinished business at former club Stoke after his first spell, where he had spent a majority of his career. Matt Jarvis on the other had is said to be weighing up his options, with plenty of interest in him from clubs such as Everton, QPR and Fulham.
However Stoke have financial power over Fulham and Everton and with QPR not yet an established team, he may opt to stay in the midlands.(10)(5)Can't see Henry going back to the oatcakes.This is the Henry that this week has become only the second player after Kightley to say he wants to stay.Henry would be better staying at Wolves. Remember Stoke bypass midfield hooofffff!!This rumour site is aload of bull half the time, henry is going no where fact i know this as i work for him and his sister near cannock and he has told me on enough occasions hes staying...Stoke bypass midfield? Sorry forgot Wolves play amazing passing football!Shall i sign for stoke or everton. what a hard desion, should take him about three seconds to make that call !Why would it take as long as 3 seconds to pick between Stoke and Everton? A proper Premership football team, or a team of cloggers...... Having said that it is only Henry so maybe he'd fit it well at Stoke Rugby club.....I dont think jarvis would pick Stoke over many teams in the top flightJarvis will join Stoke in June.

The best way to play with Henry in the team is to bypass the midfield. Stoke are not interested I can guarantee you that.

As for the arrogant Everton fan- Stoke have no debts unlike your club. Thanks for the 3 points and you managed NO shots on target at Goodison with your fine football :-)Wolves will loose £30m in income dropping out of the premier league, they have to offload players fact!

Financial reality hits the midlands shock!Wolves dont need to sell anyone but if you buy jarvis you can have henry free and i will deliver him to you free of charge


25 Apr 2012 13:44:05
Leeds could make a surprise loan move for Stoke midfielder Wilson Palacios. The Honduras midfielder hasn't played much at The Birtannia and could sign on at Elland Road until this time next year.(6)(35)Because hes been injured perhaps? no way would he go to leeds. leeds are a poor club get used to it. stop living in the pastOh dear! Because Stoke would send a bloke who has recently joined for 8 mill out on loan. Wilson P is going to go through his first "Stoke City pre-season" considered to be one of the most brutal in Europe! then we will see if he is in Tony Pulis plansI wishWeeds United after every player going they,re getting worse than crisp munchersI know Warnock isn’t renowned for playing much ‘football’ but why would he want to sign Stokes Rugby players. A total disgrace to Premiership football!"leeds are a poor club get used to it"

Leeds are a better club than Stoke.

What's the matter? You can't handle the truth?What utter nonsense! Why would Stoke loan out an £8m player who has not been fully match fit since joining them ? Wilson Palacios will be come a quality first choice player next season if he can get fit. Also why would WP join an average Championship side ? Leeds are a good, very well-supported club who will eventually achieve promotion back to the PL, but don't hold your breath LUFC fans - there are plenty of other good clubs in the Championship next season and I doubt Warnock's budget will be enough to get Leeds back up for season 2013-14.
Lastly, will people ever grow up ? A total disgrace to the Premiership ! What a load of garbage - is this from jealousy ? If you know anything about modern-day football you will realise it's a results-based business. Stoke play to their strengths, which means physical players and little, if any midfield creativity. In what way is this a disgrace ? Stoke's red and yellow card record is only average. Perhaps it's that they take points off most teams at the Britannia - how dare they do that playing "hoofball" !!Leeds fans actually saying they wouldn't want a player whose played in the champions league because he plays for a team that so calls ' play rugby' get real.Leeds are a team that had it all... Then threw it all away! Stoke are a well run club with a wealthy, shrewed and british owner! The only way is up for them, player by player they improve every seasonThere's always an person that mentions rugby on Stoke threads and always the one who can't spell :-) Pulis has spoken of the importance of getting Palacios fit for next season so no hope


25 Apr 2012 13:39:06
When the take over of Reading Fc is completed, life long Reading fan and owner Anton Zingarevich will give Brian McDermott 20 million Pounds to improve the team ready for the premiership. First on the list is resigning Gylfi Sigurðsson who has openly admitted his love for Reading.(15)(9)Hes not a reading fan, he supports Zenit, but he used to go to school in reading and had been to elm parkWould so love for this to be true but he is too good for us now IMOReading will not pay the sort of wages that other Prem. clubs will.
Seem to be a lot of subscibers to this site who fail to grasp that if you will not match the wages then players will go elsewhere.No will not go back to Reading as they want £10,000,000 for him why would we waste that much on one player who would demand big wages more likely Man utd will snap him up. I know Brian is interested in four players watch this space.Our wage bill has gone up and Aton admitted he said no big players will leave meaning that he will pay higher wages to keep players so this should work the other way. Bring bigger players in for higher wages. I would love Sigurdsson to come back but I think a big club will snap him up especially if Hoffenhiem are only wanting 10 million.Firstly Sigurdsson dosen't love the football club he loves reading (a book!). And Secondly he will be joining Man Utd and spending next season on loan again with Swansea. He prefers the fresh sea air, wide open beaches and has use of charter boat on his day off. It's practically moored outside his back door aswell.


25 Apr 2012 12:03:38
Norwich a rumoured to be watching Vancouver Whitecaps and USA international defender Jay Demerit. Former Watford player Demerit, would only command a nominal fee and could be a shrewd bit of business for Paul Lamberts men among rumours that Zak Whitbread and Leon Barnett are on their way out. {Ed015's Note - Strange one}.(8)(17)


25 Apr 2012 11:57:35
Leeds Utd manager Neil Warnock is keen his former Sheff Utd oldboy Michael Tonge. Tonge, 29, is currently on loan at Barnsley from parent club Stoke.(21)(6)Like Tonge does he?This is more Leeds free / out of contract players this type will be Warnock Birdseye signings UP THE LEEDS

25 Apr 2012 10:57:47
Gus Poyet is looking to sign a powerhouse forward in the summer is this the biggest hint yet that Heskey is on his way to the Amex?(5)(26)Think its more likely to be Billy Paynter than Heskey, how would Brighton be able to meet Heskey's wage demands?Power house n heskey? he cant run anymore and cant scoreHe could also offer rides on the beach during the summer too - shrewd business imo.I must agree he is a powerhouse.notAbsolute rubbish, we're going to look for a goalscorer akin to Phillips etc., that's without even being able to afford half what Heskey currently gets a week.Poyet wont be with you next year


25 Apr 2012 10:54:17
Doncaster rovers set to lose fans player of season Sam Hird to Middlesbrough and James coppinger to Ipswich.(19)(8)Really like Coppinger, great signing for any Champs team.


25 Apr 2012 10:44:14
Leicester are going to put in a £5m bid for Jordan Rhodes in early July in order to get in before before other clubs to sign the highly rated Scot.(4)(33)He wouldnt go there even with the amount of money thay have, he will be looking for a prem clubWould love it but Pearson would never spend that kinda cash on 1 player.Everyone forgetting how manys goals Beckford was getting in League One?
Think its pretty obivous that the majority of goalscorers cant make the step up or face it they already would have.Already would have, what at 21? he gots 36 league already, makes me laugh muppets on here, all top 10 EPL teams got players loaned out at this level that are'nt as good as him
Oh and no way he going to leicester, poor lee peltier fell for that and now he's destined for championship level with you!Going to the prem mate, don't know where, but hope it's everton. - {Ed025's Note - so do i mate..As soon as they get a bid for him they will be on the phone to all the other interested parties to bump up the price. You simply will not get Rhodes on the cheap, if indeed they want to sell at this stage.


25 Apr 2012 10:30:34
Southampton, set to pass the Molineux men on their way into the Premier League as Wolves return to the Championship, are keen on the Republic of Ireland striker and will follow up their interest this summer.

(The Mirror)(1)(14)Mate... if your going to copy & paste stuff from the rags at least ge thr players name they are talking about into it! Although we all know this is Kevin Doyle.... just a tip!Give us 7 million and you can have him


25 Apr 2012 09:04:50
Brighton & Hove Albion will be heavily linked to Burnley's Charlie Austin and Huddersfield'd Jordan Rhodes to boost their attacking options.(7)(35)Austin will be our main striker due to the impending sale of J-RodWould not have the financial capability to buy either one!Can Brighton afford to splash around 10 million on two strikers - I dont think so

Go back to cloud cuckoo landSounds like Brighton are sigining all the strikers then. Another dreamt up rumour must be something about the south coast it used to be saints now Brighton suggesting their signing everyone.Rhodes is going to be out of our reach, will go to a club with more financial clout than us. Austin is a possible, if he was allowed to go. Whoever wrote £10m for them both is laughable though.Heavily rumoured - in the brighton argus - no sensible person would link players like that with such a small club


25 Apr 2012 09:01:15
Reading boss Brian McDermott has gone to watch dame n'doyn or however it's spelt plays for copenhagen and is a Senegal international prolific goalscorer(21)(7)Hope not,hes not good enough.Dame N'doyeNot good for premier, they will not go throught^^^ are you serious? i think he'd be a quality signing, possibly another Ba/CisseThis would be a good signing i hope reading get himN'doye is not a premier player. anyway reading will not get him. 100%How can you say he's not a premier league player when he's never played in it? Don't be so judgementalI think finding his feet will be easy for a player who has played at the highest level for club football(champions league) against top teams. Also I bet a lot of fans said that about Cisse, and now look he is banging goals in. Also N'doye has a better goal to game ratio so he has been more clinical in his career. Would love him at Reading but will cost 8-10 million.

I heard andy will walk,what a waste has been good servant to Gillingham over years,wish he would become the next Swindon Boss(7)(7)Your obviously a Gillingham fan making stupid comments of he hope he goes to Swindon. How many times do people need to be told on this site Paolo is staying at Swindon he is already planning for next season and has sat down with our chairman to discuss contract extensions. We know he will go one day but it wont be now.

All these jealous teams in L2 mainly Oxford and Gillingham fans who keep on about Paolo going were all convinced Paolo was going to fail as a manager but unfortunately for those fans of those clubs he has succeeded and guess what players want to come and play for him but the same cant be said of Hessenthaler and Wilder.If Swindon ever changed their manager no way we would have someone like Hessenthaler as manager he is L2/Conference manager.

Matt Mills will join West Ham.(15)(32)More likely to sign either Heather or Mrs Mills.Bullst

LeicesterLadLol at all these leicster fans getting defensive, i thought he'd been terrible for you?He will join along with charlie austinPlease let me drive him to LondonHave him hes ste!!!!I hope he does, he is carp and a disruptive influence.. please get him off our wage billOnly if West Ham go up otherwise they have to sell a lot of playersPlease please take him, his wages and his egoI've heard that Charlton are after his signature too Chris Powell having looked after him when he first joined Leicester. Mills seems to have had a row new boss Pearson (who Powell also knows well) and has since made up his mind to leave.

IDK if Charlton have the money or pulling power to get him but he'd be a welcome addition to an already solid defence.

Various reports suggest Norwich City want Birmingham Citys centre half Curtis Davies but will face competition from Reading although Norwich are believed to be strong favourites(13)(19)Nonsense. NCFC well stocked with centre backs, not an area that needs strengthening. Lazy paper talk and agents looking to get interest from somewhere. Won't be Carrow Road.The man is bloody rubbish


25 Apr 2012 05:31:50
Nigel Pearson to be sacked at the end of the season. Sousa spotted at the KP Stadium during the West Ham game and is believed to be in very close contact with the owners. Coincidence? I think not...(7)(26)No he wasnt !Mote Bullst from a very deluded individual!! If your a Leicester fan why not try talking out your ae and get behind the team and Pearson!! Have you forgot what happened the last time sousa went near Leicester

LeicesterLadI don't belileve NP will get the sack (not yet anyway) but Sousa was indeed at the game. He was even interiewed after the match.Leicester go through managers like they are water so would not be surprised

You're gonna have to have deep pockets if you're serious. He's our POTY and he won't go cheaplyYou're going straight back down then!Matthew Connolly.A.Cresswell will cost around 2-3m and why would we go straight back down?

charlton to sign jonjo shelvey back on loan next year(10)(27)Still has links with the club. Could happen.I can see this happening if he's not a regular for Liverpool, he'll needs games and his home town club where he did his youth and has ex-teammates in the first team would seem ideal.


24 Apr 2012 22:46:57
Leeds United boss Neil Warnock has made a £1.2 million bid for Southampton attacker Guly do Prado.(13)(28)Really? Lol. I'd swap him and a few million for Snodgrass.That will please a lot of Saints fans, despite 10 goals, but he hates the British weather so not sure he will be too eager to move North! {Ed003's Note - It's weird how everyone thinks 200 miles up North makes it 'ice station zebra' ?}Let's hope this is one deal that comes off,
he's lightweight,you're welcome to him Leeds.Warnock might make a bid but why with Southampton almost certain to be playing Prem football next year would he want to take a step back in his career?He might not have a choice.Laughable. Not in the entire Bates tenure have Leeds spend that on a player. Ludicrous suggestion.I think we can do better for that price.

Man City reserve team defender Reece Wabara also linked with a move to the league one side which he left as a youngster to join city(13)(1)

Dempsey is intent on leaving the cottage, but laughed off liverpool rumours saying that it would be a 'step down'.

Apparently on his way to north london, not sure if emirates or white hart lane however.

If dempsey does leave, jol will be allowed to spend 10m on sessegnon or attempt (a bit wishful i thought) a 15million bid for fellaini.(7)(22)Dempsey is almost 90per cent an Arsenal player!Thats funny, its going to cost you more that 10m to get sessWe bought fellaini for 15m when he was a kid. Now he's one of the best midfielders in the prem he's worth at least 25mil and would not join fulham .Why would fellaini want to go to fulham. efc are a way bigger team. £15 mil isnt enough anyway

West Ham have targeted Burnley striker Charlie Austin to fire them to the PL if they fail to go up

expect a 3M offer in the summer(11)(19)Oh give over, if West Ham fail to go up there's no way our board would sanction a £3 million fee for one player.Looks like Charlton will get him then, they are the two clubs interested.Why would he go to Charlton, when he will be our main striker next season if Jay Rod goes.
As for 3 million dream on, more like 4 to 5If West Ham don;t go up your screwed and you will have to sell several players to reduce your excessive wagebill and thus won;t sign a player for this amount."Why would he go to Charlton", what instead of Burnley! FFS mate you need to get out more.How many strikers do
the hammers need
they must have 6 or
more now"How many strikers do the hammers need"? More obviously, otherwise they would be in the top two.

The Lancashire Evening News have just broken a story that a local businessman is taking PRESTON NORTH END to court with a winding up pertition for the sum of £250k. Seems PNE cannot afford to pay the loan and the businessman cannot get the cash out of the club. Possible 10 point deduction at the start of next season....FACT(5)(7)FACT...get a grip lad,this goes back 2007 and how can you get a 10 point deduction from a loan from a local businessman. the only thing fact about this is your a donkey botherer..nice try lasher get back to funny girlsSorry pal think if u read it he was offered the money back but not all at once ,hemmings will pay it back and pne will win the league next seasonNo, it's only a ten point deduction if they go into administration. Court cases like that can take a season to get sorted and may not mean administration.LEP tonight says local businessman wants his £250k loan back he gave in 2007 and is taking PNE to court.....PNE cant pay it and he's now looking at a voluntary winding up order on the embaressing.....1 win in 7, just 6 points off relegation and now this.....not a good year

Blackpool are set to make the surprise signing of Leyton Orient forward Jamie Cureton on a free transfer.

I'll have what you're having mate. In other Orient news, Slade is apparently chasing David Connolly of Southampton. Unlikely that Orient will sign Ryan Dickson because of his sending off against Sheffield United. After the game, Slade was so cross with him that he made Dickson make his own way back. He definitely won't be playing for us again.(9)(10)

Podolski is done, waiting for mvila to give a respose to start negotiations with rennes(mind u personal terms already discussed), talking with ajax for vertonghen and presigned matias suarez and holtby(with clauses inserted).

Simeon Jackson has turned down a new contract at Norwich and will talk to Watford about a move(11)(24)I'm a Watford fan and would love this to be true. But why, after spending most of his career in non-league and the lower leagues then finding himself in the Premiership would he drop out of it?Because he doesn't play much - problem is "wages"Simeon has a one year option on contract NCFC would not allow him to leave for nought, option will be exercised.Correct NCFC will take up the one year option, and if he then does not want to extend his contract in the summer he will likely be sold so NCFC can at least recover his original fee approx £600KAlso Paul Lambert has stated in the last few days that all contract talks are on hold until Norwich are mathematically safe so post is rubbish

Burnley will sell Jay Rodriguez in summer but not to Southampton as both Newcastle and Everton have renewed their interest in the 22 year old but the money won't be used to 'Pay off massive debt' as Burnley aren't in debt but it will be used for improving the infrastructure of the club.(14)(7)As a Burnley fan i'd personally like JRod to go to Newcastle,a fanastic club with fantastic supporters,if not Newcastle then Everton for exactly the same reason,wherever he goes though he'll be a big success,the lad is quality.Norwich are also said to be interested in him, and he is far more likely to get regular football at Norwich so don't rule it out, they have good money to spend in the summer, and will up wage structure to become more competitive with some of the bigger clubs.

Rovers looking at a promotion push this year after a consolidating season.(6)(15)Bristol rovers have got no chance of signing ayling as there are clubs after him in championship and top end of league one, so why drop down to a poor league two club?

For sure now Dicanio is set to go off to West Ham.As for replacement there is a large number of candidates in the bag.(6)(22)Allardice is still there. . .Let him go then, lets face it he's had the biggest budget for players in league 2 roughly 3 million!! fact, if he cant get a team promoted with that kind of money then sorry my daughter could do that, the board have given him everything and yet he still moans and falls out with players, Paolo has made some shocking substitutions this season and some of his tactics are bazzare, most of the players are shattered because they train 7 days a week, paolo would not last in any big club in the championship or league 1 as most of the players wouldnt put up with it..... so if west ham want him take him, give us calderwood and ling partnership any day, the only thing he brings is loads of passion, i couldnt believe on the time Swindon got promoted Paolo announced that 45 days ago he was going to resign what an person saying that when we just got promoted its all about him?? dont spoil the moment...........who cares if he goes......Who ever posted the piece on Di Canio is deluded so how do you know what is budget was for this season? guess work i would say also Calderwood are you having a laugh yes he was a great player for us but he's useless as a manager.
Di Canio is already planning for next season with us and has sat down with Wray to discuss his targets. He's going no where and 99% of fans are right behind him but you are either a jealous Oxford fan or one of the handful of fans not supporting Di Canio at our club.
He wont be going to West Ham its as straight forward as that he is with us again next season but maybe the follwing year he will go.

As for the players and falling out with a few of them lets put the facts on the table he wants the players to be more professional and look aftewr themselves and after last season the idiots we had playing for us who spent more time in the pub than anywhere else and got us relegated i know what i prefer which is a manager like Paolo who wants more professioanlism in the club.Don't worry he is off to leicester to replace npI am an Oxford fan, I did not write the initial entry. I can assure you we are not at all jealous of anything Swindon do. I have to say, by far, Swindon are the best team in the league this season and play good football. You were better than us at both games this season and how we won is beyond me. All I will say is that Swindon have paid out a lot of money this season on players and wages, some of the players have been a disaster. Mind you we cant talk. But there are suggestions that Swindon have large depts and this season has been get promoted at all costs. But with the ' cap ' next season, I hope you have not overspent. And before any Swindon fans have a go at Oxford's dept's, yes we have but reading the accounts, which I have, both clubs have finances to worry about. But I do think PDC will go. He is on a knife edge anyway at Swindon and my sources at Swindon suggest he is far from happy with the players attitude and if a Championship club come in for him, he will go and West Ham will be his dream. I wish Swindon well in Division 1, thoroughly deserved from this seasons performanceDicanio is going nowhere, and whats wrong with him expecting the players to wear the Swindon shirt with pride and show a bit of passion for the club that pays for there drunken nights out and this is not the first time some of them have done it. Just ask the player who got a slap on one of the nights outI thought Wet SHam had a manager, hooofy AllardyceMy friend i am no oxford fan far from it, the fact is our wage bill for players is 3 million you are obviously a normal paying punter i am not, i actually put £30k in sponsorship every season and i am privvy to this information, and yes i know all about flint {Ed 003's Note We can't put that info out}, fact is no players want to come here because of the training etc etc the players we have want to leave, paolo needs to calm down its not all about him and he is not bigger than the club, so to call me deluded and an oxford fan really?? i bet your a lad thats never played football at all if you have its a mickey mouse level and you clearly dont know what your talking about, how can it be healthy that paolo dont even speak to paul bodin and he has never watched any of the young lads, trust me its good we have gone up but he is going to cripple us with his demands, we have a player in magera who is not even playing for us he is useless on £6000 per week fact, and yes i will be sitting in my normal seat as always on saturday in the directors box, i love swindon town i just dont want them to come down with a bump and paolo would jump at the chance to manage a championship team i have seen it all before yes he brings passion thats it the guys we should be thanking is Jeremy wray, sir martyn arbib and mr blackhouse and lets not forget mr fitton they have given paolo everything........This last entry, sorry, ive lost the plot! Very difficult to understand. Im not sure if you are a PDC supporter or in fact a Swindon supporter. A for being in the directors box on Saturday? I wrote the note a the Oxford supporter. I think its a fair asessment. Not sure if you were asking me my level of football - likely highter than yours im afraid and not to mention later a class 1 ref!

Hull City will try to tie up permenant deals for Robbie Brady and Vito Mannone(15)(6)Mannone is a no go. Gunners want six figure sum and hull can't and won't pay.

Rumours in the Wolverhampton area are circulating that Wolves will appoint there new manager the 1st week of June. This would fall into line with the now constant rumour that their main target is currently employed by a club in the promtion play off places in the Championship. Contrary to some rumours i have it on pretty good authority that they now very much have a number 1 choice with a contingenncy plan to fall back on. If Birmingham are not promoted then Chris Hughton WILL be the next Wolves manager. Birmingham are in severe financial crisis and only promotion will stop them going into receivership. If this happens Hughton will jump ship for job security and a better chance of promotion at Wolves. If Birmingham are promoted then Wolves will try just once more for Alan Curbishley and if that fails the job will then be given to Steve Bruce.(13)(18)More dreamingI have it on good authority that it's a straight shoot out between Ronal McDonald and Coco The ClownROFL, Wolves fans please keep em coming, this is sooo funny.I heard Coco the clown has ruled himself out citing " I am not willing to work with Moxey"I know someone who works at the club although not high ranking position. He has told me that wolves have an agreement in place with blues over Hughton. This was when curbishley turned us down. So i guess blues making the play off's has clouded the issue.Its going to be paolo di canio from Swindon watch this space......You are a small club,you will end up with
someone like robbie fowler who will use you to get on the management ladder.I'd go for Jon Still, 'arry says he can manage at any level


24 Apr 2012 06:40:41
Allready cant wait for the season to start. These are the signing i would like to us do for next season,
Tomkins West Ham
Doyle Wolves
O'Hara Wolves(if fit)
M Phillips Blackpool
Albert Adomah Bristol City
Snodgrass Leeds
Whittingham Cardiff

I am a Reading fan by the way if we add these player i reackon we will have a comfortable mid table finish in the prem.(6)(35)Was v impressed with Adomah when he came to the mad, would be a good signing imoAnd ive always fancied Pele to Leeds.You are ritght if you got them you would have a good season, but you wont get any of those so you will struggle in the prem.Too many Championship players except Tomkins but he would go to a bigger club in the premiership if West Ham fail to get promotion. We need premier experience and we should take a leaf out of Newcastle's book and sign european players who are not recognised yet. (Reading fan)I'd say your looking at £30m plus for those players and you ain't got that much money to spendNo chance-you are going straight back down.Looks like they have typed into google who are the best players in the Championship and then compiled their list of so called transfer targets from there.

I have done something similar with Manchester City and have come up with their top targets: Messi, Ronaldo etc etc

Ectect Brazilian lad – 20 30 milHuh? that's not exactly over the top, all of those players will be playing in the championship next season? bar possibly Phillips. everyone assumes people think they are guaranteed to sign all these players...We have to look at the best the championship has to offer and the list i put IMO is that, trouble is players in the Prem, even the players from teams relagated wage demands are just too high and we wont pay high wages, i also exspect us to look abroad ie.. ScandinaviaCity will never let albert adomah go!!!!!!!!!!!All of these are very realistic as individual players. They all play for championship teams, Reading are a prem team. However you will never sign all of them that would cost a bomb. 2 or 3 maybe


24 Apr 2012 05:56:55
Gorks is terrible? Mate YOU are delusional he's been by far one of Readings most consistent players this season, a great signing by Brian McDermott. And what a brainless comment to make about qpr - take a look at where they are In the league clearly selling a bunch of their championship guys has not done them many favours this season(17)(5)


24 Apr 2012 02:40:50
Reading FC are prepared to spend big to make us a Premier League mainstay. Madjeski said we wouldnt pay inflated fees for players, not that we would not spend money and Zingarevich is ready to put his money where his mouth is.

Reading have agreed a fee with Huddersfield for young Jordan Rhodes following his terrific form and goalscoring abilities. Reading have also been looking at Huddersfields Alex Smithies but a deal seems unlikely with Alex McCarthy having impressed at both Leeds and Millwall during his loan spells.

Reading will also be looking to sign some experienced Premier League players with Andy Johnson and Kieran Richardson the main targets. However wage demands of both players are proving to be a hurdle in the agreement of any deals.

After their sentimental substitute appearances, both Gunnarsson and Tabb will both be leaving. Gunnarsson is set to go back to his homeland and Tabb's future is undecided with no enquiries as of yet. Michael Antonio is also set to join Sheffield.W following his good performances during his loan spell.(14)(14)Alex McCarthy was on loan at Leeds and IPSWICH this year!Alex McCarthy has not played for Millwall. He was at Ipswich however.ONLY in yor dreams hav READING & HUDDS agreed a fee for RHODES, he's goin to a BIGGER club.Can't see Clyne orTosh, no way Huddersfield will agree the sale of Rhodes while they still have a chance to move up to Championship.
Also there are many teams interested in Rhodes so you will have to pay top dollar to get himRhodes to Reading would be a great move for the player and both teams. Huddersfield will still be in league 1 next season so why would he want to stay and play infrot of 10000 each week? Plus Grayson can buy 25 very average players with the 5 million....

Reading manager Brian McDermott confirmed on BBC Radio Berkshire he was travelling to Denmark on 23rd April to watch OB vs AGF.
It is believed the club have placed bids for left back Adam Eckersley and Danish midfielder Kasper Povlsen who was recommended to the club by his Denmark U-21 teammate Mikkel Andersen.(22)(8)

Derby county are hoping to send alot of youth players on loan to gain money and bring in some young players aswell

Krystian Pearce-Notts county
Reda Johnson-Sheff Wednesday
Johnny russell or John Daly-Dundee united
Andrew Driver-Hearts
Liam trotter-Millwall
Jacob Walcott-Reading

Miles Addison
Lee croft
Saul Deeney
James severn
Callum ball(Loan)
Connor doyle(Loan)
Paul green

Derby have used the money they received from Investors for the new deal with shops e.g greggs,Starbucks and the climax centre
Derby are also looking for a parent club which will produce funds and bring in good young players on loan.(5)(28)Climax Centre Derby moving their ground to SOHO"youth players on loan to gain money" ?....I always thought the team that let players go out on loan paid most of their wages....unless these lads are working in the Climax centre!!!If and I mean IF Reda left Wednesday he wouldn't be going to a second rate club like Derby county,the guy has got class,so dream onSecond rate club like Derby County, brilliant. What league are you in? Derby have brilliant training facilities, a decent stadium, fantastic fans and a manager with a reputation for developing lower league talent. Quite an attractive proposition for a League One player.No chance of getting the dundee united lads....they will be aiming higher than derby countyNeither of the Dundee United players will move to Derby County, they're better than that; particularly Russell who has bags of potential and is nominated for Ypoty in Scotland.

How to chuck the ball a long way. poor player with one attribute, if you like that sort of thingWho's Niko Transfer?Tom soars is out of contract at the end of the season get a gripUtter tosh, In other words you are looking for something to do, so you made up this rubbish.None of your in list, no the first thing about rugby union"None of your in list, no the first thing about rugby union" -
What does this mean ?
How clever . . . . never heard a comment about Stoke being a rugby team before !! Perhaps playing tippy-tappy fancy football and achieving nothing, like plenty of bigger clubs, would be preferable to being an established Premiership team, FA Cup finalists last year and a good run in the Europa League. Sadly I can't see the original poster's list being too accurate. Lukaku and on loan and Jarvis could happen, hopefully but can't imagine Nico Krankjar would move to Stoke.'None of your in list, no the first thing about rugby union'

Is this an anagram? Nice insult :-)

Jarvis is nailed on to join Stoke. Was hours away from happening in Jan
Lukaku will join on a season loan- was agreed when he joined Chelsea as Stoke tried to take him then but the 3 club deal scuppered it
As for Delap- it shows the ignorance of many when all they know about him is his throw. 500 plus top flight games.

Martin Paterson - Burnley
Ben Thatcher - Free Agent
Danny East - Hull (loan)
Nahki Wells - Bradford
Nicky Adams - Rochdale
Jon Parkin - cardiff (maybe)(10)(11)The only clubs not targeting promotion next season are in the premier league.

Robbie Fowler to sign for Charlton!(12)(35)Truest rumor on here for a long time.As long as you dont offer him £90 a week and £5,000 for lasting a whole match you should get him......Thanks for turning Blackpool down Robbie, we have enough donkeys on the beach and dont need one in the team. {Ed003's Note - Harsh}Ed003.....7 or 8 years ago every team in the UK would have jumped at signing Robbie Fowler.....but at this moment he's just looking for a way into management..... and a bit of cash (Rumour at Blackpool is he wanted parity with the other players......£250 a week + bonus) way too rich for OystonGod... a donkey?? What an idiot...Signing autographs is all he'd do at Charlton and he would not be very busy. Transfer policy; hungry players with something to prove. The only thing Robbie Fowler has to prove is that he can string three coherent sentences together for sky sports, something which he is failing at just now. 100% Nothing in this one!


23 Apr 2012 19:10:20
Colchester are interested in West Ham striker Robert Hall, Ward has a good friendship with Allardyce who want's Hall to get a full season of first team action under his belt.(8)(8)Played for Oxford for about a dozen games this season. We wanted to keep him but recalled by WHU. Great signing and will only get better. So if Colchester do sign him, will be getting a very good player with a bright future. Scored 7 in 11 appearances. Good luck to him


23 Apr 2012 18:24:54

Leicester are close to completing the signing of David Worrall from Bury on a £1m transfer fee for an initial 3 years, plus option for futher year. Bury are in advanced talks with Giles Coke and Nathan Clarke's agents to bring the pair in for a combined fee of around 225k. Bury will use the money they receive from Leicester to bring in Ryan Lowe (loan), mathew oakley, jean akpa akpro and ryan cresswell to gigg lane.(5)(19)Is this the same Leicester City who were going to walk the championship this season and go up as champions, You got what you paid for, over rated players on over rated salaries courtesy of Sven Erikson, and he got fired and took more out of the pot,
bet your Thai backers are getting cold feet now, because there is no guarantee you will fare any better next season.


23 Apr 2012 17:27:18
i hope we sign these players to keep us in the prem:
Roger johnson from wolves
Scott Dann from Blackburn
Kevin Doyle from wolves
sigurdson from hoffenheim
richardson from sunderland
matt phillips from blackpool
Carlton cole from west ham
Karl Henry from wolves {Ed025's Note - and your team is...?????(4)(20)I'm guessing that's a Reading fan!?Reading?From the look of the players I think it's Reading, a lot of em have been linked with usFrom a Wolves fan you can take Johnson at half price £2.5m and we'll let Doyle go for £5m they're guaranteed Premier League failure. But you can leave Henry alone unless you're bidding £10m plus!(Reading fan) I can't see any of those happening and hope many don't especially Danns, Johnson, Henry, Cole as they are just flops in the prem and we need quality prem players who will give us that much experince also take a leaf out of Newcastle's book and sign players under the radar. Can't see Sigurdsson coming back as big clubs are after him and I hope he goes to a big club because he deserves it. Doyle won't come, he does not want to hurt his "legendary" status at Reading and would happen if he plays like he has done for Wolves.Please take Roger Johnson for free and Kevin Doyle for not much more. Premier Leaugue failures!It appears the Reading fans think they are going to spend big and easily survive first season in premiership, Just like QPR this year and Leicester in Championship.
See Gary Neville's article in Sunday mail, telling the promoted clubs to follow Norwich and Swansea's team ethic, not just throw money at the problem.


23 Apr 2012 17:26:26
Cardiff City have enquired about taking Arsenal stalets Emmanuel Frimpong and Benik Afobe on season long loans next season.(12)(9)If Frimpong goes on loan to the Championship next season (which he won't) he'll go to Wolves.Oh no he wont!!Benik Afobe is staying with Reading next season. Wouldn't be surprised if we tried a cheeky loan for Frimpong too.

Watford are selling Murrey to
Cardiff for £5million in the summer with
add on's which will mount up to
Watford are to buy Tomasz Kuszczak
perminantly from Man utd, Tommy
Smith from QPR and Dave Kitson.
Marriappa will be sold to Newcastle who have 1st refusal for £1.5Million with O'dea from
Leeds coming to Watford.
The remaining Money is to go towards redevelopment of SW corner.(3)(23)O,DEA IS CELTIC only on loan at WEEDSThis has brightened up my Monday! Murray to Cardiff? Not even Mackay would be stupid enough to bid for him unless Cardiff magic 10 million from thin air! Best thing to come out of our academy since Ashley Young. O'Dea isn't a Leeds player so that proves you're talking rubbish. Kuszczak and even Kitson too expensive for us. Tommy Smith yes please but I know for a fact he's coming back and its not dependent on whether QPHa stay up or not.Odea from leeds dont you mean o dea from celtic as he has been released early from his year long loan deal at leeds and back at celticUtter Carp
Murray not for sale - especially to Baadiff
Kuszczak is a free agent
Why would Watford sell Marriapa for less that newcastle bid in Jan
Make up something vaguely sensible next timeLaurence Bassini said that Watford would not do any business with Cardiff while Malky is in charge.Sean Dyche said on the Football League Weekend show that they do not have the funds available for transfers and have to rely on their youth system.Sean Dyche said on Football League Weekend that Watford had made £7.5 million from transfers this season.Watford have made 7.5m on transfers but unfortunately that doesn't all go to the manager it goes to paying off debts. It's not football manager where you would immediately have 7.5 to spend! Doughnut.I would assume/hope that our sales are actually paying off these debts we have...but we've been selling players for big money for years...and still have the same £10m debt? Does not compute.....£5M for Murray ? what planet are you on, no one is going to pay that kind of money for him, unless Sven Erikson gets a job back in football league, or possibly Mark Hughes gets desperate enough.


23 Apr 2012 17:24:59
Sunderland AFC are looking at taking young Chelsea starlet Romelu Lukaku on a season lon loan next season along with team mate Kevin De BrUYNE.

Both players are eager for first team oppurtunites in the Premier League and Martin O'Neill sees both players as ideal short term replacements for the outbound Stephane Sessegnon and Asamoah Gyan.(6)(15)Geordie i'm guessing with the post, sess is going nowhere, why replace these players with loans when we have money to buy quality playersCan't hav two loans from the same premier league team...Sess will be gone he goes to France every week as his family are still there either back to France or to London with the lure of only a Eurostar trip away

Burnley to use the Jay-Rod money to sign Gary Madine and DJ Campbell(8)(13)Bloody hope soBurnley to use the Jay-Rod money to......Pay off their massive debt. Cant see DJ leaving QPR now he has a 3 year contract & Gary Madine will be this/next seasons player for every team to quote in their rumors, just like Fleetwoods Vardy & Huddersfields Rhodes.Is he not out of contract at the end of the season so they will get nowt for him as they say round there {Ed001's Note - he is under 24, so a fee would be set by a tribunal, even if he leaves on a 'free'. It just means that the buying team would have to take a risk the price is right, if they don't agree a deal with Burnley.}


23 Apr 2012 16:29:02
Neil Warnock to scout out most beckroom staff to evaluate potential signings for the up coming busy Summer.

Thats 11 out and 5 in, Looking lean for 12/13(21)(7)It's one thing getting rid of Lloyd Sam, but Sam Lloyd too? That might be pushing things a bit...Add another CB, MC and a LW and you might be thereWhat about max gradelI would give you very long odds for you being right. You are well off the mark apart from Pearce and green. Warnock has already said he expects around 8 signings.We'll have Lloyd Sam back but I dont know about this Sam Lloyd fella.

Jan Mucha being targeted by Kaiserslautern subject to a 600k bid. {Ed025's Note - i think you mean danijel pranjic..(6)(9)No I think he does mean Nejc Pecnik.. Slovenian playing in Portugal. Not sure why though, looks pretty crap.

Southampton striker tanadari lee will not stop for long as a number of chinese clubs are interested in his services.
The saints could also sell lee barnard and Ryan Dickson to fund bids for high-profile transfers.(3)(9)And Saints are financially restricted, when the owners have just written off £33m debt for the club?? How much do you think Barnard and Dickson would raise-£800k tops. Small change compared to what is being invested in Saints training facilities at the moment.
Learn something about the financial situation of a club before you start to make such stupid errors.Also has no idea about the background to the Lee transfer either.Ha ha deluded people ha ha coyrds

Manchester United looking at Lille forward Eden Hazard as a replacement for the outbound Dimitar Berbatov who may be heading in the opposite direction as part of a cash plus player deal.(16)(7)Typical Man Utd fan, this is not true for two reasons

1. He is not a foward he is an attacking midfielder, Berbatov is a striker, so that puts this rumour in jepordy.

2. He is Belgium international and most of his Belgium team mates play for Chelsea aka Romelu Lukaku, Kevin De Bruyne, Thibaut Courtois and they will tell him to come to Chelsea, also I believe Chelsea have first option on him after turning him down as a 17 year old.

Now this is more believable.That isn't right, Hazard will come to Man Utd because Fergie wants him. plus Hazard is attacking mid but can play forward if needed.
These are the players who could come in.
GaitanWhen was the last cah-plus-player deal that actually happened?

They don't happen, is the answer.


23 Apr 2012 15:33:22
Burnley to sign Gael Bigirimana from Coventry in the summer. Howe is looking to secure young talent this summer and may also try to secure Alex Smithes from Huddersfield as Brian Jensen is likely to leave and Lee Grant will drop to the bench.(9)(5)As Bigirimana has signed a four year deal, and is first team he won't go for less then 3,000,000 and Newcastle are interested.

23 Apr 2012 15:05:10
Reading are to sign James Tomkins and Calton Cole from West Ham.(12)(21)Couldn't pay me to take emDon't want any west ham players near our club. Although the majority of them will leave when they inevitabley bottle the playoffs.James Tomkins has been one of our best player this year. No disrespect if he does leave it will be for a bigger and better club then Reading.Wouldn't take either of them even if west ham payed us to take them. Cole is useless and tomkins is not as good as Pearce or Gorkks. The PFA team of the year was a joke we have the best defensive record by a mile yet neither our centre backs or goalkeeper can get it. Oh and did i mention we won the league."bigger & better club than reading"

Well there by far better than you so it will still be a step in the right direction!

LeicesterLadWell done Reading you won the league, you really think you are big club dont you you will be back in the championship next season dont you worryGorkks is terrible. Just a big lump. Why do you think QPR got rid of him when they were serious about the prem?

Anyone saying Tomkins is below reading is delusional - he has been far and away one of the best and most versatile defenders in the championship this season, in a generally poorly performing west ham team. Get off your high horse, I support southampton and would gladly sign him for the prem. Reading fans are delusional for thinking they are a massive and amazing club just for going on a decent run lately - you can't forget you had a poor start to the season so could do with some squad depth to ensure season-long consistency. Tomkins would be a great signing, Reading if anything are too small to attract Tomkins who is playing for his boyhood club already and west ham look like they will get promoted soon with the squad they have so he will be in no rush to leave.

And once again...I am a Southampton fan. I have a soft spot for reading and I don't particularly like west ham, but I am just being realistic. Feet on the ground reading, don't be morons.I am a Reading fan and I would welcome these signings.

Kaspers is in his 30's now so he is not going to be a long-term feature at Reading so Tomkins would be a great replacement. However in the Reading Chronicle when West Ham played Reading at the Madjeski Stadium, Tomkins said in an interview that he would not be leaving West Ham as it is his boyhood club and he believes that West Ham will be back in the Premier League.

Carlton Cole is a good possibility and since West Ham look likely to miss out on a place in the EPL, Reading would be able to offer him a return. He is a good finisher of the ball and he has the type of personality that Reading look for in a player. He is not big headed and provides some of the Premier League experience Reading desire to become a mainstay in the top flight.Yes Gorks is terrible. I mean to be part of a defence who has only conceded 39 goals (The least in the Championship) he must be awful. Seriously do your research before you spout rubbish.

Also Tomkins was so good when Reading put 7 past Wet Spam in the two games we played this season. If Reading sign any central defenders this summer they will be as back up for Gorks and Pearce.It's a relative to what league you are playing in. Of course he is going to be solid in the c'ship alongside pearce, but he is not prem standard and is a slow lump.

That's why he was shifted by QPR for cheap, and that is why several other clubs looked at him and turned him down before he got passed down to reading.If Reading think the side they have now is good enough for the Prem then they living in dream world. Look at Gorks and Roberts, could not cut it in the Prem, look Quality at Championship Level, Ian Harte has had a good season but no way has he got what it takes for the prem, Sorry out if the team that started against palace Cummins, Gorks, Harte, Hal Robson-Kanu, Leigertwood, Mullins, Roberts and N Hunt all are not good enough for the Prem, only Federici and McAnuff could probable step up.Everyone said that last time we got promoted and what happened? Swansea (excluding The Sig) and Norwich brought in players considered not good enough for the Premiership and they are safe.

Ask any QPR fan and they will tell you how bad a decision it was to let Gorks go. As for Roberts maybe Blackburn should have given him a chance based on their current position.

There isn't as big a gulf in class between the Premiership and the championship as you Prem fans seem to think. Ask fans of those teams Reading embarrassed in the FA Cup the past 2 seasons.

23 Apr 2012 14:19:00
fact dicannio to be the next West Ham manager regardless what division there in.
As for Steve Cottrel sorry forrest fans he is joining Swindon Town is a locakl ald from Wooton Basset,drema on about Forrests millions as Clough Junior will be there next Boss(4)(23)Spell his name right and 2 its forest not forrestI think you will find Steve Cotterill is from CheltenhamNigel as next forest manager? No chance. He seems to hate us with a passion, and most forest fans, though respecting what he did for us, find this very strange.What Christmas Cracker did you get this rubbish from? You can't even spellDi Canio will no doubt become west ham manager at some stage bvut it wont be for next season i think he will do one more season with us as he is due to sign an extended contract and is already planning players out and in for next season.

Maybe in a years time he will be at west ham remember west ham fans he is still a novice as manager and next season will be a bigger test for him in L1 as L2 is such a bad league but i think if he is successful next season for us he will be leaving for a bigger club like west ham and after watching the hoof style of their football last night against Leicester their is no way Paolo will play that style when he eventually take over. Also things to bear in mind could he work with Karen Brady and if Sam is made Director of football and i cant see Paolo standing for that as they have two extremes of how they want to play football. Paolo plays the traditional west ham way on the floor and as football should be played and then you have big Sam who plays Hoof ball.Why sorry cotterill is the worst manager in the championship!

23 Apr 2012 14:14:39
I have it on very good authority that the Wolves job is between 4 candidates. 2 of those are in the play off positions in the Championship as we stand. Ian Holloway at Blackpool and Birminghams Chris Hughton. One of those 2 will figure very prominently, both if neither club goes up. Dougie Freedman is also in the frame but is the outsider at the moment. The other is current boss Terry Connor. The only other turn of events that may put a spanner in this would be Paulo Di Canios departure from Swindon. I believe he is not in the running for the Wolves position, but could well be up for the Wesr Ham job. Then allowing Sam Allardyce to join Wolves. I have had this on pretty good authority. Any thoughts Ed No1??? {Ed001's Note - the only one I haven't heard of being in the running is Allardyce and I don't expect Connor to have any chance of keeping the job either.}(4)(17)There are numerous candidates for the Wolves job:-

Alan Curbishley
Steve Bruce
Paul Ince
Lee Clark
Chris Hughton
Gustavo Poyet
Terry Connor
Karl Robinson
Gary Megson
Paul Jewell
Roberto Di Matteo
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Ian Holloway
Sven Goran Eriksson
Sam Allardyce will only be an option if West Ham decide to move him out.Out of that exstensive list of any person who has ever managed a football team, I can only see Bruce, Ince or Megson wanting the job....all the other managers would be wanted by Wolves.....but I cant see any of them seeking the name I dont see is Billy may as well add it to the list along with mourinho, Pep guardiola & CapelloGet it into you thick skulls Alan Curbishley turned you down! He was always far too good for Wolves anyway.No one including Curbishley himself has confirmed that he turned the job down (although its pretty obvious he did) but can't realistically see Wolves going for Mourinho or Guardiola whereas think Capello will stay in Italy.

Monopoly money would be my guess...

clint dempsey to everton 4 million(6)(45)More chance of me laying an egg.Doubt it he is worth 10-15 milI'm not a Fulham fan but, 4m seems very very cheap.Typo alert...

Was that meant to read £14 million? Good luck Everton - you'll need itClint Dempsey is worth much more than 4 millions! He will stay at Fulham, 100 % sure.

I have it on good authority that Ipswich Town will make an audacious swoop to secure the services of Norwich City's Wes Hoolahan in the summer.

Hoolahan has been made available for transfer by Norwich boss Paul Lambert due to him signing a 3 year commercial deal with crisp brand giant 'Hula-Hoops'. Lambert sees this as an unnecessary distraction to Norwich's fantastic 1st season back in the top division and now wants to sell him to the highest bidder.

It is understood cash strapped Ipswich would have to sell before they can buy but with West Ham United willing to pay £2.3 million for Town wonderkid Alan-Lee Barrett, this would free up the funds to seal the deal.

I believe the deal to bring Hoolahan to Portman Road is still in the early stages of being completed but both sides are optimistic a deal can be reached.

In order to agree personal terms with Hoolahan, Ipswich have agreed to give him time off to shoot Hula-Hoop commercials when required.

When I get more information, I will keep you posted.

Conr62(8)(21)Wonderkid and alan lee barret ha pwhen he played against leeds he was awful. hope thats 2.3 million yenFirst of all it should be Arron Lee-Barrett. Made a mistake on the name there.

Secondly, he is the highest rated 'keeper outside the Premier League.

Thirdly, who are Leeds? You have no more fans than Ipswich. Whenever I see the highlights of Leeds getting beat at Hellend Road there is just thousands of empty seats in the background. Leeds are small time.

Conr62Firstly, Leeds have the 4th highest average attendance in the league an average of 23,500 instead of 17,800 at Ipswich. Which is around 25% more attendance wise.

Secondly he has been at Ipswich for 3/4 seasons playing 39 times and furthermore is only playing for Ipswich because Alex McCarthy has been recalled.

Thirdly, rated higher than Adam Federici and Robert Green.... dont think so.

fourthly, that's because of the size of our stadium.

You've been starved of being able to watch decent footballers and its making you deluded. regards.Furthermore Wonderkid he's 28...........To the guy replying to Conr62's posts, i think you are deserving of a massive whoooosh! The fact that this is clearly a wind up and fictional, comedy story has gone so far over your head you wouldnt be able to see it with a telescope. I suggest you think through the viability of such posts before replying in the future. To the original poster, i had a laugh, good post! But lets be honest, Wes is far too good for Ipswich, hes worth 2-3 times their squad at the minute and we all know that those cockney wannabes have a phobia of Hoola-Hoops, how would they cope with it thrown in their face all day?I'm a town fan and Lee Barrett is woeful hence the budgies (cough cough) funny post.

PS Rob (I cant claim a cross )Green a good keeper what planet are you on ask any Hammer or England fanI work at the marketing firm that has the Hupla Hoop account and I have never heard of the player so I don't think it is correct, but I will check.Actually 28 is young for a keeper, so wonderkid tag could apply.Look Leeds are bigger than both Ipswich and Norwich put TOGETHER and we only have ten toes each

I have it on very very good authority
that Norwich City FC have successfully
Negotiated a deal with The banks and Aviva
regarding the clubs Debt, in as much the agreed
paying off of debt for staying in THE PREMIER LEAGUE, this means the club can now look
forward to bringing in 3 or 4 quality players in the summer(11)(7)What a load of tosh, of course they have a good relationship with the bank, they owe under 20M down from 23M a year ago, also they are earning substantial income set to be repeated next season plus a minimum of £40M in parachute payments if they did slip out of premier league, so whats to negotiate!, the club is worth substantially more than its debts, and its outlook is brilliant for at least 3 years for revenue. Banks lend money as a business and its based on the business model of a company, the club stated last year that it will service the debt gradually over the next few years making substantial yearly reductions.
Plain and simple the Bank was happy with the club management 22 years ago,and its only got better since then.
Whats Aviva got to do with anything other than a main sponser who has just renewed for another 4 seasonsI think you have missed the point that the original poster has made. Upon restructuring in the last couple of years the club made a deal with the bank that upon survival in the premier league the full debt would be paid off. The original poster is stating that this deal has been negotiated so that we do not have to pay off the full debt this season, giving us more to spend this summer to give us a better chance of sustained survival in the premier league.

Id hazard a guess that we will then pay the remaining debt off should be survive next season whilst also building the new city stand. All makes sense to me and i find it highly plausible giving our great progress under Lambert, McNally and co.

Stoke manager has been told he will need to sell before he can buy. Crouch is to be sold to Sunderland and Walters to Newcastle which will free up much needed funds to bolster their failing team.(5)(34)Why would newcastle want walters?Failing ?? really ??Walters in not too bad... but would only pay 2 mil for the lad. Stoke in terminal demiseIs this so sell before he can buy thats why we r spending another 6million on the training ground thats how bad we r for money ( richard)Worst attempt at a Stoke wind up ever. Is this the same Crouch that rejected Sunderland for Stoke :-) By 'terminal demise' do you mean a possibilty of their highest finish in 30 years? School's out I seeWhy would sunderland want crouch he has turned us down 2 times and is average, Bruce was after him, O'neill will be looking for better strikers than himCrouch is poor and Walters is average at best. Both teams will be looking for better players.No chance Crouch will go to Sunderland. And why will Newcastle buy Walters?Walters is poor as is crouch... Stoke can keep them as no one else wants them

Wolves departures in the summer:

Jarvis (to Everton)
Johnson (to Reading)
De Vries (to Liverpool)(7)(24)Despite Doyle sayingthat he is "happy at Wolves & staying"?Of course Doyle is going to say that you muppet. He doesn't want to go spouting out that he wants to leave (especially with a few prem games left to go) because he is then shooting himself in the foot. If a premiership club comes in to buy him then he will walk, same as what he did with Reading and I am sure he was "happy" there.With income dropping by 30m Wolves will need to sell to rebuild, the team that get them relegated will not get them promoted. Getting a good manager in quickly will be the key and that looks like a risky job for any manager, who's first job will be to reduce the wage bill.I've heard Liverpool are in the market for a dodgy reserve keeper, so I reckon this guy knows what he's on about.

Two clearly isn't enough so this way they can get one sent off and suspended, then have another sent off in the next while the next one gives away a penalty. He'll then get dropped so De Vries can play, who will go forward for set pieces and score all their goals, coz none of their strikers can...

Stoke have been tracking Joe Cole's availability after failing to land the player on loan this season but are also keeping tabs on Lille's Lucas Digne who has impressed this season.

The Potters are also keeping an eye on PSG's Bahebeck. Scouts have watched all 3 players this season and are doing so again in the coming weeks.

Why would joe cole sign?hes a footballer

Yep, Joe Cole would definately want to sign for Stoke, so he could run around in midfield for 90 mins, and not risk any injury or bad passes because he could watch the ball sail over his head for the best part of 60 Mins, the other 30 mins the ball is out of play while they take corners, Goal kicks and wipe the ball for their throw-ins.
Last Stoke match apparently the ball was in play for just 58 mins, and was the least in League again, must be a joy to watch every week.

Stoke don't play football yawn yawn yawn.........zzzzzzzzzzzzzz. I take it your club couldn't beat them you mean :-)

'Why would joe cole sign?hes a footballer'

Come back when you've mastered basic English

And also come back with an apology at the end of the season when Peter Crouch scoops the prize for 'goal of the season'....fool.(3)(13)Ben arfa goal of the season !!!

Freddie Kanoute has been offered a 2 year deal by Ipswich Town. This is 100% true. It's highly unlikely he'll accept since it would be a big drop in wages and he owns a mosque in Seville where he is settled but the offer has been made. Ipswich looking for strikers with a limited budget. They only have 2 senior strikers on the books - Chopra and Scotland (Ellington is an expensive practice squad member.

Leadbitter is off to Southampton. Everyone thinks he is joining Middlesbrough but once Saints are confirmed as promoted Leadbitter will be their first signing on a free.(5)(25)
