Hey Ed is there any truth in rotherham united signing stuart beavon? and who do you support by the way? {Ed003's Note - I thought PNE were favourites for Beavon as it stands,I support B'pool}

I know eds a huddersfield fan in heart, he looks after the bad mouthers of Jordan Rhodes {Ed003's Note - What? A yorkshire club! Lol ;) }

It's not Gary monk the defender bristol city are signing its Dawson of west brom is due for medical in the morning fee been agreed of 1.4 million , there will be up to four players leaving Ashton gate this week but adomah won't be one set to sign a 3 year extension and also been told the dj Campbell deal not dead could still be something there

Dawson has got a very bright future at WBA so even if he left to get first team experience it would be on loan or for alot more than 1.4 mil as he has represented team GB and England U21s

Ha no way we will let dawson go for 1.4 mil

Dawson may go out on loan but he is very much part of the West Brom future.

Were getting monk we've been after him all summer, were in talks with swansea to agree a fee

Craig Dawson is highly rated at West Brom, not going anywhere

Tbh I'm a City season ticket holder and I can't see this we've spent at least 2million on Baldock and Davies, Cunningham can't of been cheap and nor can Anderson so 1.4 million is probably out of our range but it would be an awesome signing if we did!

Back -Up Central Defenders We've Got, Tamas (Dodgy) Dawson (Solid With A Great Future)
Get Real

Dawson is a big part of Steve Clarke,s plans he will be going nowhere,especially for 1.4 million.

Dawson is very keen on the switch to Bristol city as he can't settle in the midlands and he thinks Bristol is a nice city with a good team and ambitious manager and wants to be apart of it , talks were held over the weekend it will be a loan deal til end of the season the he will join on prem deal next season , I'm a west brom fan with friends in high places he may even put a request in to force the deal though depends if Bristol can afford him now

Absolute nonsense. Stop making stuff up kid!

Ipswich town are set to sign jack colback on a season long long, during the next week.

No chance hes part of mon's plans at the sol

More chance of me joining ipswich on a free transfer n Im 44 !A North Shields Mackem!

Urm..... no

Where do you get your info from mate utter rubbish we signed a midfielder on loan last week we dont need colback any way he was rubbish last time we had him here so no thanks

Let's be honest,what does JET add to this team,what we need is a player with vision to create a pass .

Believe me cresswell's will leave as town cannot refuse 5 mill.that money will help to build a better team,but it remains to be seen if EVANS trusts Jewell.(that is the big question)

Colback was very good at town but he won't come back as part of Sunderlands first team

Hi ed, any news regarding Swansea ?

It's in Wales

And player better football than most teams in the world

Yeh einstin but what about the Swansea in Tasmania?



26 Aug 2012 22:02:20
Pablo Mills, George Pilkington, Adrian Cieslewicz and Tom Pope are all on Gary Mills radar at York as he looks to plug the gap left by the injured Chris Doig and improve Yorks potency in front of goal

You are a radar detector! 2 of them in time for Saturday I am told.

Ha just what I was told by my source - centre half could be the last to come in but the Cieslewicz and Pope deals have apparently been on the negotiating table for some time

No way will tom pope leave vale, lifelong fanand his 100% comitted to the cause



26 Aug 2012 21:46:26
Defoe will be allowed to join QPR at the end of the week, once alternative signed.



26 Aug 2012 21:10:36
Sunderland in talks with Stephan M'Bia

Marseille have let Diarra go, M'Bia won't be going anywhere



26 Aug 2012 21:09:24
Ipswich aiming to make 3 signings before the end of the transfer window. They will look to bring in Paul Gallagher from Leicester for around 700k, Jay Bothroyd from QPR for an initial season loan with a view to a permanent contract next summer and finally Kelvin Wilson from Celtic for £400 k.

No chance I'm afraid!,get realistic,they don't trust pj with any money after wasting loads last summer on the likes of jet,Bullard and bowyer

JET good value for money on end of last season form though not got going yet this season. Everyone wanted Bullard at the time.

If only this was true all three wold be great for town but it wont happen mate.

Bothroyd would be get but doubt we will get him,wont spend that much money on gallagher but he is a quality player.would like wilson lets keep our fingers crossed

Bothroyd going to wednesday im afraid

I would be happy with all 3 but can I see it happening. Alas no.

Borthroyd's wages too high and he's lazy



26 Aug 2012 21:04:55
Dawson to continue talks with Qpr on Monday. And joey Barton has revealed he hopes qpr and marsielle can agree a deal within the next few days. And marsielles president has said Stephane mbia has played his last game for marsielle and will be joining qpr

I think QPR will find it really hard getting any top players in . Even if they offer massive wages no players want to be in the championship next year FACT

QPR will make 2 or 3 more signings in this window and will have more than enough to stay up FACT. As for struggling to sign top players think you'll find most premier league clubs would be interested in Zamora hoilett park and cisse all who QPR have signed in the last 12 months FACT

Hoilett maybe. Cisse unlikely as he is a liability and tried and failed various times in premiership. The other two are coming to the end of their premier league careers

Haha, makes me laugh that this muppet says QPR won't sign any big name players... two days later we sign Julio Cesar! In terms of goalkeepers, they don't get much bigger than that!.. Championship next year? Pffft, get your football knowledge off the back page of the Sun, do you? Muppet...



26 Aug 2012 20:06:08
Ricardo Rocha, Danny Webber to join old club Portsmouth also George Thorne and Chris Wood will join pompey on one month loan deal

Would welcome Ricardo,Danny and George back, all far above the standard of the division we now find ourselves in. Would like to see another central striker with height though.

Appleton has said himself that, at present, the club can't afford anymore signings & that the FA have restricted Pompey to a 20man squad. Therefore, even if Appleton could sign anymore players he'd only be able to sign 3 not 4.

Isn't Chris Wood a tall central striker?

That's rubbish, the only people that we could possibly sign soon is johnny ertl darel Russell and possibly linganzi



26 Aug 2012 19:43:45
Middlesbrough are waiting to see if Swansea will match the £6M valuation they have placed on Marvin Emnes.

Swansea are also considering Tom Ince from Blackpool if they cannot get Emnes.

If Boro do sell Emnes then they will try and get Roque Santa Cruz from Man City or Frazier Campbell from Sunderland on a season long loan deal.

Harry Kewell remains an option but Mowbray would only consider him on a pay as you play deal. Kewell wants a 12 month contract with an option of a further 12 months after so many appearances for the club.

Swansea are considering Tom Ince oh that's good of them.....I'm sure Holloway has told them NO!!

Boro will definitely sign H Kewell this week.

I wish someone wld pick up Kewell, we need him back playing for his countries with all these world cup qualifers around the corner..... The english still think he is injury prone but hasn't been injured since leaving the EPL in 2008

5m plus dobbie for emnes!! Sounds a good deal to me.

Whispers around teesside that jordan rhodes on radar, all depends on emnes going to swansea.

I'm sorry emnes is the after thought of this they were going for ince but we said no so they will have to settle for ince lite

Lucky if you get 2m for Emnes. He's not that good! Rather we didn't buy him.

Emnes can leave, just not to be replaced by another loanee. could do with castelen signing and offloading scotty mac

If selling emmo for 6m hope spend it on new players and not bank it

Please not emnes, would love to see Hernandez down the liberty.

27 Aug 2012 21:18:51
emnes not for 6m keep him.



26 Aug 2012 19:37:46
chung yong lee subject of £6 million bid from wigan athletic.
Bolton Wanderers have told wigan to come back with £10m and the deal will be concluded



26 Aug 2012 19:25:43
Any truth in Lita to Swindon anyone know?Heard Ward could be on his way

Ward yes...Lita no. Though he would be a good signing for us I cant see it happening.

Lita Is a maybe ward is a definitely coming on loan

Okay thanks, would be great signings, both

Ward can leave on perm their manager has said



26 Aug 2012 19:16:31
scott sinclair to join man city on tuesday
the sum of transfer is believed to be
6.2 million



26 Aug 2012 18:56:09
West Ham have made a 2M bid for Charlton right back Chris Solly.

Bid rejected

If they have charlton should hold out otherwise charlton will ruin their season by losing their player of the year if charlton will sell him wait for next summer do it early on and get another right back

Get rid of Solly, any real pace and he is useless, against Hull made several mistakes, 2 almost cost goalsand that was before the monsoon!

Solly is a good RB he places good pressure and is a good defender

Get rid of solly? Do you actually go to the valley and watch the games? He is the brightest prospect that we have had for years since bowyer or lee. If we sell solly it will have a massive knock on effect and show clubs we are a selling club.



26 Aug 2012 18:43:49
Nigel Reo-Coker will join Leeds on a free transfer before the transfer deadline. Heard from a close family friend.

Prob untrue but would be a good signing

Warnock confirmed he is not expecting to make any further permanent signings before Friday's deadline following a busy summer of transfer activity at Elland Road.

He added: "We won't be buying anybody. I think the most you can expect is a loan player if we can, getting into September."



26 Aug 2012 18:30:49
Burnley have signed Brett Pittman. Have contacts inside the club. Not sure when announcement will be made

Goodluk to pitman burnley have a good player he do verywell

Saw Brett at Ashton Gate yesterday - said he was staying at City.

We ain't signing pitman unless it's on loan which is unlikely



26 Aug 2012 18:16:25
Michael Owen will sign for the club he supported as a boy Everton before the transfer window closes. It will be on a pay as play deal. Stoke,West Ham and Reading all interested but has decided to sign for Everton. :James OMG

Hope it is everton

So do I, I'm a Stoke fan and we cannot afford to pay the kind of money he wants even if he was fit to play every week

I really hope we dont sign Owen he is clearly only in it for the money and he wants a club as close to home as possible

Stoke can afford owen but pulis is sticking to a strict but well planned regime and would want to offload players before bringing in him however owen is an everton fan so that would be an advantage to eveton



26 Aug 2012 18:05:13
Wigan are after Chung Yong Lee of Bolton. Bolton want 9 million but Wigan will hope to get him for closer to 5

Sounds feasible considering Bolton's poor financial state, It's a fair price IMO.

Bolton wont sell chungy to wigan.

They may do, no money and
championship football.

Your havin a laugh if you think Whelan will dip into his pocket for 10M!

Wigan need a goalscorer who would be on the end of Chungys crosses? IMO should aim more for Michael Owen on a free then CYL (From a pie eating wanderer!)

We have Kone? Why would he want to play for a team that will be stuck in the Championship for a few years

Boltons finance is actually ok for the 7 billionth time! 10 million to the banks!! 90 to our owner



26 Aug 2012 18:00:41
Coventry's next manager will Be Gordon Strachan, he will be returning after 12 years. He met with the board on Thursday after Andy Thorn was told he would be sacked if he didn't win against bury (match ended 2-2). Heard from a reliable source (sports reporter BBC Coventry & Warwickshire)

11 years...

Graeme alexander has been contacted regardng the vacant city managerial role after thorny was sacked--------source---- im his sons mate

His lack of loyalty would be the least of our concerns. The fact that he has an IQ of around 63, no man management skills to speak of and zero tactical knowledge would probably detract from the chances of a successful venture.



26 Aug 2012 17:35:30
Fulham's U21 striker Lauri Dalla-Valle is having a trial with Sporting CHarleroi in Belgium

Thats not true he scored on Saturday for the u18s

Lyle Della Verde scored for the U18's. He is not the same player as Lauri Dalla Valle despite similar names...

This rumor is true, it's all over the Belgian and Finnish media now. Try googling Dalla Valle + Charleroi and you'll find dozens of articles about it. Dalla Valle already made a good impression and Charleroi are considering loaning him for the season.



26 Aug 2012 17:04:27
is there any shrewsbury town news?

There will definitely be a proven goalscorer coming in. There has to be.

"app' they want to sign fryers ons a season long loan?

We still need a striker

Shrewsbury in talks with Jose Baxter released by Everton this summer

Striker is hopefully on his way before the deadline!

What does people think of Michael Owen coming he said he wants to stay quite close to Liverpool and aaron wildig is Owens freind

Saido Berahino on loan will happen

Fryers who?

Owen wants to stay in the prem

James spencer and walace to join from huddersfield on loan

Zeki fryers on loan from man united

That the same Zeki Fryers who signed for Standard Liege on 23 Aug?



26 Aug 2012 16:34:59
A close friend of mine who works at the club as a scout has told me Mohammed Abdellaoue will be a Norwich player by friday.

Hes signing for wolves tues done deal

He's signing for Villa

Frazer Campbell in Simeon Jackson loss of 1m for ncfc. C Martin out Abdellaoue in loss of 3.5m for ncfc. Bigeli in on Loan

No he won't

Biglia is not signing spoke to David McNally at the match on Saturday he said we won't sign him as we now have tettey

I thought Tettey was a definsive midfielder and Biglia an attacking one. So there compleatly different players.

I have it on good authority that he has agreed to join Stoke. Done deal.

It was always Tettey or Biglia not both. City have enough attacking midfielders with Hoolahan, Butterfield and Snodgrass all able to play the role.

On the Craig MacKail-Smith attempted signing- isn't anyone at Norwich City aware of an old football rule states that anyone with a double-barrelled surname must be rubbish? You'd think we'd be more careful about checking up on things like that.



26 Aug 2012 16:22:52
i have it on good info that coppinger is going to barnsley before deadline day. keith hill has spoken to him and will sign him in january transfer window permernatly.

Maybe if Matt Done is sold to Palace but at the moment I can't see Hill wanting him permanently as we have a load of attacking players who will be back from injury in a few weeks - the idea behind the Coppinger loan was to cover injuries.

Coppinger would be a good player for us,far better than Done,ifwe can 500k for him then let him go

Would rather have Done



26 Aug 2012 16:20:07
hi ed. have you heard any good barnsley transfer news before deadline day? as we need new players a.s.a.p {Ed003's Note - nope sorry but don't panic still the loan market to utilise}

I heard a rumour you were getting relegated with millwall and p'boro turns out after satday I was right!!

We'll give you that one after all it's a long time since you played at this level. Don't turn into a blunt a wendy have a bit
More about you, this sort of stuffs wasted on us we hear it every year. Genuinely hope you have a good season, no problems with town, had a good game at Wembley recently :)

Terrier85 i suppose your going to be saying that next season aswell when we stay up like we have done for the past 7 seasons

Terrier...wheres your main striker gone??

Come on terrier85, we've got six points and ten players out, you must feel a little silly now!!!!



26 Aug 2012 16:16:43
Keith Tracey will sign for Bournemouth after burnley have agreed a fee for Marc pugh swap and cash deal to be announced before Friday

All those players leaving the
cherries to go to burnley
they are not going to better
so next year they will all come

All what players leaving bournemouth to go to burnley ? Last time i looked we only signed bartley and ings from you , we didnt sign vokes from you , we didnt sign austin from you and yes if we do sign brett pittman its from bristol city not bournemouth ! And id rather have treacy than pugh , pugh cant cross for a start , and i for 1 would definately say that ings and bartley have furthered themselves by joining burnley rather than stay at bournemouth !championship or L1 ? Duh

If true should be great news if this Tracy bloke is a good crosser. Sick & tired of Pugh mucking about before making a woefull cross. Don't get me wrong Pugh is great when he's great. The capabillity is certainly their but he's lost his touch & reuniting with Howe would only benifit both clubs. {Ed003's Note - Treacy seems to have problems settling down at clubs,football clubs that is }

Agree that it's right to get some cash for Pugh whilst he's on contract, and getting Treacy as a replacement sounds good to me. If Burnley fans like Bartley or Ings or any of the other former AFCB players currently at Burnley, i can tell you, Pugh is better than all of them

^^ You've taken our manager and his backroom staff, Mcquoid played for you on loan, Bartely, Ings, and a reserve keeper, all directly from Bournemouth. Vokes ex-bournemouth, and constantly linked to Bournemouth players. So its far to say your intrested in players that have played for Bournemouth

Bournemouth supporter here & let's be honest. Burnely will sign former AFCB players because they have a former AFCB manager so why do my fellow fans care? Ofcourse they are going to sign those players because Howe knows how they play & not because they're from our club. Now will people shut their gob & quit acting so suprized & looking to take credit like Burnley fans actually care?

^^ well said , burnley fan here and who cares who signs who ? Its football at the end of the day anythings possible !

You said Mcquoid played for us on loan. What relevance does that have to the topic. We got him on loan from Millwall and had no idea that he would sign for you AFTERWARDS!

^ Millwall signed him from AFCB, then went on loan to you a year later. So it has every relevence because he was an ex-bournemouth player playing on loan for Burnley.

But we didnt get him on loan from bournemouth we got him on loan from millwall

If you read my comment you will see i said "its far to say your intrested in plaers that have played for Bournemouth) doesn't what clubs they went before you they still PLAYED for Bournemouth.



26 Aug 2012 15:57:23
Doncaster are close to agreeing a deal with preston over the transfer of Iain Hume
The deal will be on a 2year contract if coppinger leaves if not it will be a 3month loan deal
Also Nicky Weaver is close, he was at the doncaster vs crawley game

Weaver was definitely not at Doncaster vs Crawley, there's a picture of him sat at Hillsborough with Aaron Jameson.

Yes he was as i was talking to him during the game

Barker and crawley town will revisit in a years time when the price of David Worrall will be more affordable and realistic

Graham westley has the makings of a strong preston side need a striker and who knows what can happen come on you pne fans get to deepdale and get behind the manager and the team they give there all and so should we



26 Aug 2012 15:55:07
Dennis Wise will be next Coventry manager

You must be very desperate if this is true?!

If this is true god help us.

God help you indeed...absolutely no loyalty where Wise is concerned. I really hope for all of you Coventry Supporters this is a non starter.

He will go to any club that will pay him more



26 Aug 2012 15:53:44
sean dyche is wanted bt coventry city as they will sack andy thorn today or monday

You could do a lot worse with 'DYCHEY' A very good leader! From a Millwall Fan! Good Luck!

He is a good manager but has a habbit of signing complete rubbish players



26 Aug 2012 15:46:01
Young Fiorentina Goalkeeper, Lorenzo Bardini on trial with Blackpool over the next few days. Has been staying at the club's hotel and was watching the game on Saturday alongside Banvo Anderson.

Ollie said we don't need another keeper, rubbish rumour Seasider91



Beckford to Cardiff

Cud be true but hear blackpool are after him wages are a bit of of a hitch.



26 Aug 2012 15:20:18
Bramble and Elmo from Sunderland to hull this week
Bid also made for Campbell but he wants to stay in premier so waiting on offers - Norwich interested and fulham

Campbell to Norwich this week

A bit disapointing about bramble but the "elmo" winger sounds allright.

It's Elmo and Mayer NOT Bramble

The only bramble going through the gates at hull will be bruces bramble pie

Is Mayer any good because no other clubs are after him?

Would lve to see the fatman take hes rejects from safc

Campbell would be a quality signing.

Be surprised if meyler leaves safc on loan as mon rates him very highly

Mayler is pretty good not sure about mayor though

Brambles been much better than what i thought he'd be fo S'land and elmo had bout 5 MoMatches last year

Safc fan here Elmo didn't get one mom last year! However him and bramble would be excellent in the championship. Bruce got the best out of bramble at Wigan and Sunderland!

I thought elmo was a muppet. i stand corrected.



26 Aug 2012 15:17:51
Rumours involving Doncaster Rovers this Sunday lunch time:-
John Ryan overheard speaking with manager Saunders after the shock defeat yesterday about freeing up money to bring in players to strengthen the spine of the team back to front. Four players which Saunders has lined up to cover the positions of keeper (Weaver you would assume), a fullback who can cover central defence as well, a "reducer" in midfield to cope with the physical play seen yesterday by Crawley, & allows others to play, & finally a tried & tested goalscorer.
Balance that though with the view heard downstairs on pitchside before the Donny Belles game yesterday, that the board want to stay in this league & not challenge for promotion because financially promotion is not in the business plan for three seasons at least!
Also the board are expecting Hull City to try a cheeky loan bid of James Coppinger with a view to buying in January 2013, but Nott Forest to offer to buy on deadline day when the price could be lower! Jaime Coppinger though wants to stay at Rovers, whilst Saunders would prefer to sell him & Martin Woods in order to remove any trace of the O'Driscoll era.

Promotion IS the aim this season, John ryan does want to get promotion as it will bring 5-6m into the club,
Also Coppinger will never leave on-loan to anywhere
we will not give DS more money as we want our club run good in financial way

So JR doesnt want to see the club that he owns and supports in a higher division!, he was overheard speaking about every player weve been rumoured with, and DS wants to sell woods after saying how important he could be when fit and also sell copps one of the fans favourites. What a load of rubbish! . DS doesnt want to sell but hes going to have to sell at least 1 to free up funds and this will most likely be copps

Physical play seen by Crawley? I must have been at a different match.



26 Aug 2012 15:15:27
Sources close to MK Dons tell me: Due to the recent number of red cards at MK Dons they are looking to sign a CB that's a free agent. Also heard about two wingers from the SPL. More News To Follow

Dempsey will sign for Sunderland next week,talks expected on Monday.Also looking to sign Dawson,player holding talks tuesday.Sunderland also looking to sign left back either Jonas Olsen,Warnock or Ivan Strinic.Sunderland have also made enquiries about Anderson of Man United and Rose of Spurs.Good times ahead.BLACKCAT

Great news if true mon is fantastic thankyou sir martin from the north shields mackems ftm!

Surely u mean Martin Olsson from Blackburn as Jonas Olsson is a CB

Sunderland fan if all this talk about the American and a left back and a cd is all well and good nut if we at e getting rid of Campbell and sess we need at least 2 more forwards as cw and rn are the only other forwards that could partner sf so we need strikers still if there rumours are true



26 Aug 2012 14:59:15
Maya yoshida will have signed for celtic by friday.

He's signing for Southampton ... You must have your Japenese players mixed up!

Hes also in talks with celtic not just southampton

Are you on drugs were in the spl ya nutter we buy or get loand championship players thts all y would he come to us if he could go to west ham or qpr ?

They will go to celtic for the chance of europea football, like jelavic did with rangers



26 Aug 2012 14:52:14
notts county to sign unknown striker in the week and its not cresswell



26 Aug 2012 14:43:16
Sunderland and Fulham have agreed a deal in principle for Clint Demspey. MON now just has to convince him when he arrives on Wearside on Monday for talks that his future lies with Sunderland, as his favoured destination is still Liverpool. If he can be convinced a medical will take place Tuesday and he could be unvailed as a Sunderland player ahead of the league cup game against Morecambe on Tuesday night. Providing that goes ahead with Sunderland's drainage problems.

MON is believed to be looking to build a side that can easily make it into the top 10 and advance to the later rounds of the cups.

You sunderland fans are wrong Dempsey has stated either Liverpool or a team in the champions League he wants to play champions league football before he retires hes not going to get that at Sunderland is he and Fulham are a better team that Sunderland so id rather stay if i was him

As a sunderland fan i really hope this is true, hearing alot of reports about this today and we have jumped from 11/2 to 1/2, on , a really like dempsey and dont see why he wouldnt come to us, we r looking promising for this season after signing fletcher and johnson, didnt think we would of got johnson but look what happend.

Come on dempsey you can be a hero at sunderland and a legend special things happening here so come and join us son,

Haaa get real!! He would never leave Fulham to go to a team like Sunderland. He wants a move to liverpool for a good chance to be playing Champs League next year & the chance to prove himself at a bigger club!

This wouldn't surprise me and it would be a massive mistake for Dempsey to take a drop down in clubs, but seeing as no Champions league club have come in for him and he has no future at Fulham, it looks like he has no other choice. Can't wait to see the back of him for some decent money

Serves him right hahah. He refused to play for us so his punishment is to go to a smaller club. I'd take the money and run

Richardson and campbell coming to cc

Sunderland a smaller club??????? Are you deluded man? Ful;ham couldn't hold a torch to Sunderland. Are you for real? Check the history books, look at the fan base & the grounds? Fulham? Smallest club in London & most other places. My garden shed is bigger than your ground.

It doesn't matter about history. it's what happens now that counts. Look at Forest, great history rubbish team. We are a small club but we have a great ground and do better then expected every year in the Prem. At least you have your old Fulham boy to score you some goals this season.

Enter Mad Mick McCarthy ?



26 Aug 2012 14:19:00
Crystal Palace are on the verge of signing striker Stephen Dobbie from Swansea for £750,000

The Eagles have also captured young attacking midfielder Gael Kakuta on loan for the season from Chelsea

No, the Eagles haven't captured Kakuta has he has joined Olympiacos on a permanent deal.

Olympiacos Marseilles transfers not yet agreed

Don't have either of them! Wouldn't be able to afford Kakuta's wages and Dobbie wouldn't go to Palace and probably couldn't afford him aswell



26 Aug 2012 14:08:47
What ever happened to Dame N'Doye rumours? Would've been an interesting signing! Anyone feel Owen would be a good buy?

URZ 1014

Went to lokomotiv moscow

He signed for locomotiv moscow

Personally i think Owen would be an excellent signing but on wage terms that would make this signing more likely.



26 Aug 2012 13:54:34
Hi ed any plymouth news

Not going to sign anyone now

They were players that we had in the championship but they clearly aren't of the same quality now, we had them in league 1 too, may as well get back Barry Hayles whilst your at it

What even tho doumbe is in a league chasing promotion side ? and clark and fallon are at a top spl side? mate if u wouldent want them i dont no who u would want, glad your not in charge of the transfers :)



26 Aug 2012 13:22:17
Eds, are there any rumours for reading fc at the moment?

Jordan Ayew. Marseille Chairman says its nearly done.

Apparently this has gone south after they rejected a 4m bid....Reading sticking to their guns on the valuation, so not going to happen now.

Next on departure list from Swindon Town is Paul Benson,yet another fall out at the County Ground.
What will the Fans make of that one.
First Connel then Caddis sooner or late olayers will revolt

Please let this be true so we can finally take him to Shrewsbury (as he has turned us down twice already).

Nice try oxford fan. He's got a slight knee injury so wasn't risked!

So Connell revolt, then caddis, then benson next you will tell me PDC is going to leave too because no backing from the board, get it rest guys

Benson yes I wondered what's going on with him . Shame again if he goes in the window this week that will be a complete new srike force we will have ...

He is injured

Complete and utter tripe

More bulls**t from someone up the road who knows whats going on at Swindon yet don,t know whats happening at there own club. Oxford will be gone before end of season

The players leaving is more to do with financial cut backs and not "Di Canio bust ups" so get your facts right. Swindon haven't got money to burn and are run sensibly thank you very much



26 Aug 2012 13:10:19
Will Blackpool sign or sell anyone else

Hopefully Dobbie and some Italian Keeper from fieriontina

There will defo be a striker or 2 coming in but whether or not they're on loan or permanents remains to be seen.

As for Outgoings, if what I'm told is true then none of our first teamers (including Philips, Ince & Baptiste) will be going anywhere, some of the young lads might go out on loan a la Liam Tomsett to Hyde.

Young Fiorentina Goalkeeper, Lorenzo Bardini

Matt Phillips only out at least one maybe two striking options coming in



26 Aug 2012 13:07:48
Blackpool will do a straight swap with ludo Sylvestre for Steven Dobbie

We've already had a bid accepted for Dobbie that doesn't involve Ludo, he's refusing the contract.



26 Aug 2012 12:59:01
Crystal Palace are set to buy both Paul Taylor and George Boyd from Peterborough for a total fee of £1.4million. They are also very close to signing Queens Park Rangers striker DJ Campbell on loan after failing with Jay Bothroyd due to high wages last week.

Posh are wanting 2 million just for taylor !!

Why would they join one of the few teams in the league who are worse than posh??? great banter

Why bother with such a nonsencial rumour such as this.
Look at what has already been turned down individually and then you will understand a little better.
Palace have not got 2 brass farthings to rub together, and as such could not afford either.

Both are staying at Peterborough! Also wouldn't be able to afford DJ Campbell

1.4 mill is all we will get now!
Congrats to Fat Baz again. 1.5 mill from Notts Forest for Taylor turned down and 800k from Huddersfield from turned down
Has cost us 700k again!

This is a rumour site! keep your hair on.

I'd rather have the players at the club this season and let them go for free than sell now for the sake of an extra 700k, staying up would be worth more to the club than the fees that are being banded about, unless its a stupid offer then keep them



26 Aug 2012 11:57:26
Southend to sign Scott Donnelly and Bayo Akinfenwa by Friday.

Don't think so we don't have the money for wages

I've heard they could be completed as early as Friday.

Well they'd need to be completely by Friday as that's deadline day!! Although Donnelly could sign after as he's a free agent.

Sufc depending on Mohsni leaving for moves to go through.

I've heard they could be completed as early as Wednesday.*

Sooner Judas (Mohsni) goes the better, free up wages and give us money

Stop hating on moshni, respect what he did in his short time but any footballer wants to play the highest level possible plus it gives southend funds to keep the club going

We aren't hating him for wanting to play higher, we're hating him for the manor in which he's decided to go about that, completely disrespecting the club who gave him a chance in English football, we are fine with him wanting to play higher.



26 Aug 2012 11:29:15
Bristol city in talks with tchoyi over a 6 month deal after talks with Birmingham broke down

Would be very happy if this were true...but can't see it unless we lose a few players this week (either on loan or sold).

There were no talks with Birmingham, lee Clark knows tchoyi's agent and was doing him a favour by letting him train with us while he was looking for a new club



26 Aug 2012 10:45:54
Leicester will sign Nathen Redmound, and Are very close to sign Arsenal Midfielder Henri Lansbury On Loan

Who is nathen redmound?



26 Aug 2012 11:19:48
Nottingham forest fans are saying they have agreed a 3 year deal with Russel & a 1 year loan for ex-arab Goodwillie. Forest have new billionaire owners , new manager & 8 new players to date. They have also offloaded seven players to make room for new signings. Could be a goer.



26 Aug 2012 10:34:22
Swansea now steping up their interest in middlesbourgh marvin emnes after they were flatly told in no uncertain terms NO by blackpool about the sale of tomas ince

Listening to Mowbray interview I would say this will happen. How much? Maybe 5 million. Would free up cash for another signing or two



26 Aug 2012 10:31:28
Watford will this weel be losing a number of players who are no longer required byZola and his team
John Eustace to Leeds
Carl Dickinson to Palace
Ross Jenkins to Wycombe or Northampton
Joe Garner to Carlise
Matt Whitchlow to Orient
Mingoa to Brentford

This is bs. eustace is 1st team he's just injured atm and dickinson isn't leaving

Eustace will stay as he's a great leader and Zola said we missed him in the defest against Ipswich. Dickinson will probably stay as cover for Pudil. Jenkins may leave as he hasn't featured and is a poor player. As much as I'd like to see him go, Garner will probably stay as he's played fairly regularly so far. Whichelow may go out on loan but I doubt permanently, but I wouldn't rule it out. Mingoia impressed in pre-season but hasn't played yet so again will probably go out on loan.

Eustace to leeds maybe last year but not this.

Eustace won't go. Can see any of the others leaving, although your destinations are guesses... Palace are fairly well covered on the left (Moxey, Parr both play left back) so they don't need Dicko

Dickinson played on saturday

If them three new loanees join. The only players we'd have left from last year would be Murray and Hogg.

I also hear eustace is leaving as wont get in above abdi and hogg prefered so eustace told he is cover and he dont want that.

I doubt Mingoa will go to Brentford, was on loan for a couple of months last year and never got close to the first team.

27 Aug 2012 16:45:51
Some truth in some of these rumours. More likely if Eustace leaves, he will go to Coventry IF Dyche gets the manager's job there. Dicko could leave as WFC are about to sign another left back, Jean-Alain Fanchone. His twitter account confirms he is coming to Watford (from Udinese) for the seasonb.

He played for ten minutes during which time he confirmed he was the worst player on the pitch - if there are any takers Dickinson will be gone

It was my post about eustace and dickinson left back signed from udinese which now lets dickenson leave and i'm afraid eustace is going as he wants 1st team football and he wont get in above abdi and hogg and others prefered...he has been told he can stay but he wants to go..sorry if that upsets some fans bit it is the truth.

'If them three new loanees join. The only players we'd have left from last year would be Murray and Hogg.' what about taylor, yeates, iwelumo? dont badmouth iwelumo he's a good player

To the guy above, Eustace won't leave, I'll happily bet anything I own on that. He's an influential captain and Zola appreciates that fact and has used him whenever he's been available so far.

No way eustace will leave even if he retired watford have already agreed a deal for him to have a coaching role at the club

Adeyemi signed for bees till jan this morning great shout!! Bidwell signed for a month too!



26 Aug 2012 10:17:33
BURNLEY have agreed a deal to sign Dane Richards from Vancouver Whitecaps on a free transfer the deal will go through in january

At least thats one confirmed deal - i'm fed up of rumours involving current and past bournemouth players!

Dane richards mum used to be a dinner lady at afcb

Dane richards great great great grandad used to play for bournemouth before he made the illustrious move north of the border to yep you guessed it ..... Burnley !



26 Aug 2012 10:09:43
Crystal Palace looking to sign Jimmy Mcnulty from Barnsley, Heard that Parr looking to return home, Freedman has identified Mcnulty as an Ideal replacement.

Hope we can get him before the deadline. I think it will go down to the wire.

There is no way Barnsley would sell arguably their best defender after conceding 8 goals in the last two games. (McNulty hasn't played yet this season due to injury).

Sorry but you will not be signing mcnulty we have too many injured players including mcnulty to let anyone leave.

McNulty our best defedner? Well that shows how bad the others must be, he's a liability. 150K plus and we should snap Palace's hands off. To be fair, as a midfielder he's not bad as we don't get punished if/when he inevitably loses the ball when he starts thinking he's Franz Beckenbaur.

Er Mr Johny Parr is more than happy after his first season at Selhurst after picking up player of the season,This on the back end of a full season in norway.



26 Aug 2012 09:36:42
rrumours are that crystal palace are stuill intereste in matt done and paul taylor.

You will not be signing matty done we havetoo many injured players.



26 Aug 2012 09:20:18
Keith Tracy will be at Bournemouth on mon for medical Moreno follow

He will be in Bournemouth ground for 2pm for anyone who know

No sign of him, so you're obviously not one in the know



26 aug 2012 07:57:04
any bristol city transfer news,

City are to sign monk within the next 3 days, city have a good squad together now will lots of depth and were full of goals looks like were finally going somewhere thanks to dm all we need is monk to tighten the defence and our team is done then



26 Aug 2012 06:28:30
Bristol city to pursue their interest in David Dunn this week

Were after monk not dunn

Would prefer someone younger to be honest. a 33 year old is hardly building for the future is it

Yeah but he's got lots of experience and he's strong plus we've got james wilson who is turing into a good player just needs more games



26 Aug 2012 03:09:24
Wolves to offload de vries to Liverpool. with David james as possible replacment on FREE anmd lots of experiance to provide?

The idea of Wolves offloading anyone to Liverpool is fanciful to say the least.

Offload ? he put in a transfer request.

No thanks to James. Past his best for me. Won't we sign the Hearts keeper we had on trial instead?

A good man in his day but doesn't fit the "young and hungry" template. It won't happen.

Wolves & Saint Etienne have reached agreement for transfer of winger Bakary Sako. Another good signing for WWFC from France if completed.

No need as we have just signed a winger from rennes



26 Aug 2012 02:37:21
wycombe to sell beavon to cardiff IF they can sign o'toole from windsor and allen from guernsey.

david jones is signing earnshaw from cardiff which will please earnshaw's wife as she wants a move back near the east midlands.

No club with any sense will pay WW'S the fee that they want for Beavon! A League 2 player!



26 Aug 2012 01:24:30
Four suspended players will force MK Dons to make signings, expect news this week.

Not really sure why we would need to add to the squad? Gleeson's back tomorrow, Kay on Saturday, Smith the game are that and then Lewie. There's enough cover now that Williams and Otsemobor are back in the fold.

I agree we still need a player or two, but only a bit more pace up top in the wide positions coming off the bench when the game is stretched. I fully expect us to be waiting for the big boys to sort out their European squads next week and there to be a good young loanee from one of them. Somone in the mould of Andros Townshend when he joined us.



26 Aug 2012 01:05:16
Harry Kewell to Boro?

Kewell still lives in Wetherby and been training with Boro's other Aussies Williams & McDonald could go on a years deal with an option of another year depending on fitness & appearances. Still think he could do a job for any Championship team. Again I think Boro need to shift a few to get some in McDonald, Emnes sales are imminent. Mowbray has not played Emnes or McDonald in the last couple of games



A midlands regional player at the most



25 Aug 2012 23:07:38
I hate to say this as a Bristol City fan but it appears that Pitman is to sign on a months loan at Bristol Rovers.

Cant see they could afford his wages. Anyhow i've heard he's off to Burnley soon for 550k

Not gonna happen, burnley 550k.

I would rather he goes to burnley coz i feel sorry for the lad and want him to have some game time which he doesn't get at city

Settled in the West Country and BCFC want to keep him as an option. Both managers get on well, think this may well be the start of loan moves between the two clubs whether fans like it or not. Loaned until January 2013 initially.

Its not 'if the fans like it or not' as you say its whether R*vers could afford Pitman which i doubt very much and he wont wanna take a pay cut of a half. He's too good for them anyhow

He can get lost! He was crap against us in the pre-season friendly, couldn't hit a barn door!

The original poster is correct but it's Jenny Pitman who is joining Rovers. After a lacklustre summer in the transfer market they hope this signing will add a touch of glamour.

City to sign Andre amougou. Also city to sign ibrahimo sonko on loan. James Wilson out on loan to Coventry. Joe Edwards on loan to Barnet.



25 Aug 2012 23:21:26
Liam Trotter of Millwall is moving to Stoke for 2.5 million. This is a fact.

If This is 100% FACT OK, but then why did he play & score today?? He could have got injured!!

I would have held out for 3M myself! A very good player with a lot of potential! He tends to drift too much for my liking!He is either brilliant of you have try & find/look for him on the pitch!! If true he will have to buck his Ideas up in the PREM 4SURE!!!

This could be true, I wouldn't say that it's 100% Fact though!

Im not sure about that pulis watched him but isnt going to sign him simply because whelan whitehead delap edu ness cameron maybe huddlestone where would he fit in?

If this is true (which I doubt), how many midfielders do Stoke need?
Whelan, Whithead, Palacios, Delap, Cameron, Ness, Wilson, Edu (rumoured to have signed). 8 midfielders is quite enough methinks.

Let's just get everything sorted out quickly so we can get on with the football. We still require another left back, decent playmaker in the middle if Trotter goes and another striker. Come on KJ, in you we trust.

Hope not Pulis should be bringing internationals not lower league players. He just a'nt good enough

If true,it would have been too risky for him to play yesterday??it dosen't make sense to me, anyway we shall see this week!!

Has 1 good game in six!

Take the money!

It won;t 'HAPPEN!

Well Mr.Jacket you have got five days left to get a LB & STRIKER,and if you don't we will be in trouble if we get injuries/suspension/court cases?? Then we have to wait till JAN! I am 'FED UP WITH LOAN DEALS'!!!! YAWN, YAWN!!

What is 'Going on' Kenny? We are playing good football, but still need at least two more players before Friday,PLEASE!!

I must admit that being a true 'Lions fan' as I have been for 40yrs! I do trust in KJ! But some of his 'DEALINGS' in the transfer market have 'BAFFLED' me! Let's hope that he proves me wrong before this 'FRIDAY'??

Personally I think that a lot of true Lion's fans are very frustrated with the lack of 'transfer activity' up to now! we have until 31st Aug! I for one am definately not holding my breathe! Unbelievable I SAY!!

It dosen't seem to matter to Kenny Jacket? If he has any emotions for the 'LIONS' please try & sign a couple of players B4 Friday! We the fans 'LOVE' this club 'MILLWALL'!

I can't understand Millwall 'fans' who criticize Trotter. He has been outstanding overall for us. True he has bad or indifferent games but anyone who knows football can see he is quality, maybe not a top four player but he is definitely premiership quality - why do you think the scouts are watching him!!? He would be very hard to replace for the money and wages we can afford. Look around us in the championship and the money some clubs can pay - look at Bristol City - how much do you reckon Baldock and Davies are costing them in wages? I personally think KJ has bought well on the whole. At our level it's sometimes about taking a punt - some will work out and some won't. We cant afford the finished article, get used to it and get behind the players we have got. Both Blackpool and Sheff Weds will not be far off this season and we've given both of them a game and with a bit of luck could have had a few more points. 18 out of the 24 teams in the championship have been in the premier league and most of them get bigger gates than us. We regularly outperform our local neighbours and have done ever since KJ took over. IKWT

Can someone please tell me what has happened to the guy that we got from 'OLDHAM' 'TAYLOR '?? He plays well & scores 3/4 goals in pre-season games & looks to be shaping up! He looked a 'GOOD' signing! What has happened to him? What has he done wrong?? I am 'BAFFLED'!! ISN'T ANYBODY ELSE???

Trotter is a very good player with a lot of potential! I would just like him to look a lot more interested than he does in some games! I am not doubting his talent 'AT ALL!

For who put we shouldnt be signing lower league players sometimes lower league players are better as they are willing to play and want to put effort in and some internationals just want the money

Take him, to inconsistent. Will have one good game and then about three or four poor games. Can be the best midfielder in the division on his day, but is lazy



25 Aug 2012 22:53:22
Ramirez omitted from the Bologna squad for sunday's opening Serie A match away at Chievo.
His coach says "his head isnt in the game"
Maybe the move to Southampton could still happen

Something needs to and pretty quick regarding new signings for us,we don't look to be even anywhere near the weaker Prem teams,yesterday highlighted that,still hopeful but pretty worried.Let's hope the next few days will bring us some classy,experienced players,we're just not good enough.

We should have sorted out new signings long ago. We have bought a good championship team. We lost out on defender to manchester united cos of a mix up on payments. The loss yesterday came at right time as at least they realise the urgency.

I thought he said he didn't want to play for them again and might go on strike. That could be a fairly good reason why he is not playing

Saw this on Italian football website....i wonder if its a smoke screen hiding the fact that Ramirez is actually on his way to Southampton for his medical

We way too many non premier league class players and our management are also second class managers in signing players. All these transfer mishaps dont happen with Man City or Man Utd

He told chairman wonted to leave so they pulled him out of the squad same sort of thing as phillips i think

I'm fairly sure Bologna would say so if he was having a medical elsewhere. I'd doubt they'd try to cover it up.

Very much doubt he's on his way anywhere for a medical, let alone the south coast. All things considered, we've just gotta give it up and realise this boy ain't gonna be playing for us.

People need to get a grip, panicking already we lost to City and Wigan 2 games in. Have some faith - there in a job because they deserve to be give em a chance and remember where we were a few years back.

Massive learning curve, yesterday. I am confident, though, that we will invest wisely this week. Minimum of 2 CBs and 1 winger, preferably 2. Ramirez or Phillips would be great, also heard rumours of Christian Tello. We really need two more 1st teamers, really. We've got a good spine. Davis, Clyne, Jos the Boss, Fonte, Fox, Spidey, Davis, Lallana, Lambert. If we were to add Ramirez and Tello to that front line, we'd be on a roll. COYR

To stay in this league we need two centre backs, a left back and two wingers. The quality at the moment except for lambert and lallana simply isn't there. It's time to splash the cash or regret it

Fox is not good enough for the Prem. He leaves huge gaps in the defence on the left and is not quick enough to get back when he attacks. We must get a quicker more defensive LB. {Ed003's Note - it is up to others to cover him when he attacks you can hardly critise him for that if he is instructed to attack}

Can't agree with that - we are going to get murdered down the left side week in week out, unless or until Fox is replaced with a Premiership standard LB

Repeat. Fox had highest assist last season.

Ed003, note are correct...but you still have to get back sometime. My comment is based on watching virtually every game since he joined Saints. He's good, but he is not Prem standard, hense the reason we have made plenty of offers for other LBs.

Fox is a good championship level LB, but we need better for this season for sure, same goes with Jose and Jos I'm afraid.

We need a new cb 4 shore I think jos is good I think we just need prm xp



25 Aug 2012 21:51:44
Any roumours on clint dempsey going to safc

Hearing 4m and richardson and campbell

7mil and campbell



25 Aug 2012 21:47:40
Pulis still interested in Boltons lee

Dont think so

No chance chung is staying put.



25 Aug 2012 21:35:02
Leicester, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth and fleetwood all set to start the bidding war for Swindons wing wizard Matt Ritchie

There will be no bidding war. PDC has valued him at 2.5 mill, so which team comes up with the 2.5 mill valuation will have a good chance of signing him

Not sure there will be a bidding war for matt tubbs, the thoght is that bournemouth have been gradually upping their bid and is now believed to be around 1m mark. With swindon still putting unrealistic tag of 2.5m , surely that would cool any interest from leicester,notts for and fleetwood. Bournemouth turned attention to burnley and possible pugh and treachey deal, while zuber and tubbs have also been mentioned. The clubs plans are to keep all these players as important members of strong squad, but quality additions would be welcome.

Happy bidding

If clubs put up 1.5m now it would be hard to turn down that sort of money for ritchie?
Cash upfront now or never

I thought we were talking about richtie?

I think 1million would be enough to get Ritchie in light of Swindons recent financial restraints

And what financial restraints are they? Have I missed something in the last 24 hrs? 1 mill for richie I don't think so

Haha at swindon who take this 2.5 mil asking price so literally little old swindon you do make me laugh

Little old Swindon still has a price of 2.5mill before you say he isn't worth that kind of money, the valuation is from PDC not the fans

Ritchie is in the last year of contract and his value is dropping each day that goes by, he can negotiate with whoever he pleses come january, so best you either sign him up on longer contract or face losing him for nothing. the clock,s ticking. tick-tock, tick-tock.



25 Aug 2012 22:07:30
David James is set to sign for Exeter City for the rest of this season as a player/coach.

Yep heard the same. Rhys Evans off on loan ive heard to Christmas

Depends on the tribunal fees we get as to whether we can afford him



25 Aug 2012 20:56:47
gary mills has admitted that he needs to go fishing for a striker and a cb in the welsh leagues and the blue square as he wants to get the players cheap

Connor Sammon?



25 Aug 2012 20:52:42
Plymouth are set to sign Timar

All plymouth need is one good cb and one target man bring back fallon!

Never guna happen

Bring back kristian timar aswell and ciarian clark! and doumbe,

Argyle need to bring in fresh faces and not those of the past!

I'd be happy be anyone at the moment as the players mentioned are better than what we have. But I'd hate to say it don't think anyone will be coming in

Yet these were the players we had when we were mid table in the championship?

Timar should of been a first choice cb. I would have him bi. And doumbe. Defo not Fallon or Clark tho. We have such a poor squad. We need some more players in. FACT! Fletch will get us relegated.

We never even had ciarian clark chris clark i think u will find

Yes that was what i meant

People this is my first visit on here and can u tell me who the hell these player are

All argyle need is halmosi and bursary back
