Celtic are looking to bring in lubo in as the next manager as neil lennon says he would love to have him at the club but lubo will not come back unless he gets the manager job. larsson might come in as with lubo but says he would hate being hated by the fans if it goes wrong.

Dos Santos of spurs is coming in because crosas told him the fans will love him because he take a man on. Paddy Mc Court says he will give it 1 more year at the club and if he can't stay of the injury list then he will go back to ireland to play for cliftonville as they have a caluse with celtic that they can take players on loan. also coming in to the club will be nicky shorey to play left back because braafeild says scotland is not were he wants to live. rummors are going about david healy coming in if keane leaves for good but the fans won't take to him ramis will not come in but bamba of hibs will as mjalby says he looks the part. martin petrov to come in as he was told so much by stan the man petrov. my brother is at the under 19 and told me all of this

–––––WEST HAM UNITED FC––––––––––––

Sullivan had denied that he said that the players were 'Fat, Lazy and Useless'. For some unknown reason, I don't believe him and I also have a feeling that many other West Ham Fans do either.

Gold has said that Zola is safe within his job. Now on another hunch, this is typical owner comments on how they have 'faith' in the manager. This is not backed–up as both Gold and Sullivan have drawn up a list of 10 other managers who they would want to take the helm at Upton Park.

If Zola does go (be it by his own choice or that of the owner's), Mark Hughes is the main candidate that the two Davids want. This however is hindered by the fact that if Hughes does take the helm, his whole management staff wage package is £10million a year!

Also, the move to the Olympic Stadium looks brighter for West Ham and has the supports of various political figures (sich as Boris Johnson) and also some members of the London Olympic Committee. However, the move WONT HAPPEN untill the beginning of the 2014–15 season as it would be used (obviously) for the olympics and then would need to be converted to a stadium fit for football and other events.

It looks like West Ham will lose Matthew Upson and Rob Green in the summer window with Arsenal looking the most likely destination with Man City on the radar for Upson aswell. West Ham are still looking at getting Seb Laarson and Liam Ridgewell! This could happen even though both players have clauses in their contracts that could restrict this possible transfer.

I hope you found this helpful and if you have any different rumours i would be glad to know.

Henrik Larsson has been approached as a possible coach/assistant manager at Celtic.

Henrik and Neil Lennon are still good friends and it's thought that Neil would warm to working with his old Celtic team–mate.

I Recently heard that liverpool football club are in the lead for chash for chelsea's youngster joe cole. The winger has struggled to gain first team chances from recently coming back from injury, the winger is ment to be worth 6.6 million pounds.

Whayever idiot posted that, don't bother!! Chelsea "Youngster" Joe Cole lmfao, and his contract expires end of this season, so he leaves for free. You have heard of the Bosman Ruling in planet cuckooland. More serious point, my friend is a turk and he says Turan is going to AC Milan in the summer JF96

FAO The Cardiff Fans Who I Spoke With Recently

Sorry I've not got back to you yet, been busy with a house move as well as having my work structure at the club changed.

What I can tell you is this:

It's true that the Malaysians want administration for the club, so that they can buy the club on the cheap and then sell it on for a bigger price. This has worried Peter Ridsdale as he sees the Malaysians as putting the club in a position similar to Portsmouth – a quote from him: 'We do not want to be used like it were Pass The Parcel'.

Since the Watford game, Peter has been very quiet indeed and has not attended meetings with fellow board members, indeed some days he has only been at the club for a few hours or half a day at best – the official response is that he is unwell, but it doesn't take a genius to work out that he hates Steve Borley, Mike Hall and Paul Guy. He even said, at one point, that he hoped Borley would go the same way as Matthew Harding when he flew to Malaysia recently.

Peter does NOT want the Malaysians on board, and his meeting with an investor at the Cheltenham Festival went well, but the investor has said that he will only put money in once Borley and Dato Chan (these were the two names I alluded to in my first post) are gone. If they stay, no investment is going to be forthcoming. The thing is that it is the board and Malaysians against one man – a man not universally liked nor trusted by the fans.

Peter has said that he will wait until the end of next month, in order to decide whether to press ahead with administration or not. A good performance in the league and victory in the play–offs is the only way of avoiding the dreaded 'A' word. No promotion WILL mean administration, and maybe Peter's investor friend will step up to the table. Not too sure if I can see the board bar Ridsdale going (as the investor wants to keep Ridsdale on in the short–term) and the takeover is most likely going to polarise opinions and divide fans further.

2010–11 is make or break for the club – even Peter has said that.

Just woken up to news that Ricki Herbert, current Wellington Phoenix and New Zealand manager, has voiced an interest in the Celtic job.

Would be better than Lambert, Lenny or McGhee IMO.

Nottingham Forest Update
Loseaway Davies rejected players on the last day of the transfer window. The reason? They were all picked by Lord Pleat. Lord Pleat in turn rejected all of Loseaway Davieses choices. Between them Lord Pleat & Prat Pelling managed to not get anyone in at all. This is in keeping with Forest's plan to finish in the playoffs, try for Wembley for the cash boost and then lose the playoff final. Meanwhile Lord Pleat & Prat Pelling will continue to undermine Loseaway Davies with a view to making him leave in the summer. Lord Pleat wishes to remain in control at the CG and Loseaway Davies is rocking the boat too much. You heard it here first, watch this space. Redspark

Heard a story that snodgrass of leeds is a signing in the way for celtic by the way of mr parks (our scout) wait wait for mr quinn buying sum of mr desmond shares , keep the faith


27 Mar 2010 15:37:19
Forest fans I am man enough to offer an apology. I let you down not with my info but with my optimism. Billy Davies refused 3 players in the last few days of the window, Tosic, Edgar and J Loyd Samuel. Non fitted his requirements. It serves him better to be seen to struggle, Oldjom no longer an optimist.


27 Mar 2010 14:23:30
Celtic understanding is that Roy Keane will soon leave Ipswich Town and will be offered the Celtic job.Lennon will be his number 2 and expect a number of Scots and Irish players to pull on the top and bring some heart and soul back to the club.Markyboy

no chance of arsenal signing more than 4 players in the summer. with 4 players looking like theyr off (Silvestre, Senderos, Merida, Fabianski), and with Eduardo and/or Vela seemingly set for loan spells next year, wenger justifiably will not sign more than 4. we have spent 2010 without RVP, Gibbs and Djourou, who will all be back next season. Ramsey will be out perhaps til the end of the year or so, and apart from that, our squad has no long absentees. expect RVP, Gibbs and Djourou to be fit for the start of next season. with fabianski being crap and with Merida realising he won't become a first team regular, only minor alterations are needed. assuming campbell and gallas are retained, and assuming eboue moves up the pitch for good, arsene needs a RB, a DCM, a CF and a GK. the right back must be able to cover at CB too. the striker everybody knows is Chamakh for free, so enough on that. the DCM may well be Melo, although Senna, Moussa Sissoko and Matuidi have all been mentioned. wenger will not want to pay more than £10–12m for such a player, so forget Sissoko. at RB, it looks like its going to be vdWiel. the guy is great prospect at right back, though may lack the height at CB. but we all said that about Vermaelen and he's been a revelation. Vermaelen himself has recommended vdWiel, having played with him at Ajax. he would cost about £8m. for goalkeeper, people should stop talking about the likes of Lloris and Akinfeev. both are overrated and therefore overly expensive.rob green may be an option, moreso if WH go down, which i doubt. the best option appears to be Manuel Neuer, a solid, hungry performer who has received raving reviews across Europe. Almunia will not be no.1 for more than 1 season more if at all, so quality is needed. expect one of Szczesny and Mannone to go loan nxt season to gain more experience.
the only way wenger would sign another player was if one of Campbell or Gallas left, in which case a CB would be signed. that player will not be Sakho, as he is left footed and would play in the same position as Vermaelen, who has been outstanding. the player coming in would have to be capable of playing on the right side of the central defence. names touted have been the likes of Subotic, Tasci, Mexes, Savic and a return from loan for Nordtveit. the latter may be the best option, given Djourou will be ready to stake his claim, and has the power and hunger to succeed.
the likes of Pedro Botelho, Wellington Silva, Jay Simpson, Henry Lansbury and JET are likely to join up with arsenal next season, so there are some quality youngsters moving in to boost the ranks.
out: silvestre, senderos, merida, gilbert free, fabianski £3m, maybe Gallas/Campbell free.

in: Neuer £9m, vdWiel £8m, Melo £10m, Chamakh free, nordtveit wellington botelho JET lansbury (all loan returns except Wellington), maybe one more CB.


27 Mar 2010 10:52:56
If Lazio get relegated this season, Liverpool will sign Mauro Zarate for 11m


27 Mar 2010 10:51:09
Keep reading on here about Joe Cole to Arsenal – Not going to happen – Arsenal have a very strict salary structure and Mr Cole is already on a reported £80k per week (which is well in excess of the highest paid Arsenal player), and looking for more – So expect the likes of Man Utd/City, Liverpool and a few Spanish teams to be the front runners (who will oay the wages). My money is on Liverpool (providing Rafa stays as, apparently he is a huge fan) or, whichever club, 'the chosen one ends up at'.

Now some real news – Liverpools so called financial problems are not as bad as anyone makes out – Yes, they owe money, but the Yanks have personally guaranteed that the loan interest will be covered and, although this has been done via 'Kop Holdings', the liability still stays solely with the two directors so, if they default on a payment, it is their 'personal' assets they will need to liquidate, not that of the club.
That is why they are in no great rush to sell and, if LFC miss the Champions League spot, no sale will be made, as the value of the club will reduce. There may well be investment, but this will be for the ground only.
However, c£20m will be available plus funds from sales – Leaving will be: Gerrard (Real Madrid – £10m plus Higuin (great bit of business I think)), Babel – £10m – Ajax / Bayer Munich) and Lucas – £12m – Spain (well rated in spain!!).
Coming in – Higuin (p/ex) – Silva – £18m plus a central defender (unknown)


27 Mar 2010 10:41:33
Now a proper rumour. mcfc will bring in 2 barca players for £135 mill.

To the lad who said

"Kills me too say this.gerrard on his way!! not been with us all season, head all ready in madrid!! expect to see part–ex with alonso + around 15mil comin our way! alonso back along side mach with aqua behind torres! reina captain! we gotta move with the times"

Gerrard aint goin nowhere, and alonso aint coming back. The Higuin rumour has built up pace in Spain and England so expect him+a left sided defender(cus insua is ste) and a replacement for Kuyt(maybe Mata but only if the money is right).Rafa will stay as long as he makes fifth spot or above. New owners in by August and a title challenge next season–C'mon The Red Men!

Owen Coyle to be approached as manager however feel we need a strong manager to get stuck into players happy to take the money but do nothing to earn it.


27 Mar 2010 07:17:58

Expect Celtic's next manager to be announced at the end of the season and it will be none other than Csaba Laszlo, Celtic were interested in the ex Hearts man before they appointed Tony Mowbray and Peter Lawwell believes now is the time to get the Spl's 2009 manager of the year into the Celtic Park hotseat, Csaba Laszlo does not want to join Celtic at this moment as he is currently in a legal dispute with Hearts over unfair dismissal hence why Neil Lennon has been made caretaker manager for the remainder of the season, my source says Csaba will be 100% Celtic's new manager for the start of next season.

THE BIG MAN (always in the know)


27 Mar 2010 08:28:27

27 Mar 2010 08:53:04
The Higuain rumour has really built up these last few month according to spanish papers


26 Mar 2010 23:30:43
On good information, indirectly from the source. Dermot Desmond became tired of Mowbray months ago and set his sights at that time on bringing Mark Hughes to Celtic. Much depends on the budget but that is the number 1 choice for the Celtic job!


26 Mar 2010 23:28:07
About Arsenal talking to Chelsea and Joe Cole. Arsenal would have to talk to the club because English clubs can only talk to English clubs players when a month is left on the contract, so start of June usually. Foreign clubs players is 6 months hence Kris Boyd talking to Birmingham.

Rumours I've heard from agent based in Liverpool is that investment will be in time for summer and Rafa will go in for Carlton Cole and David Silva.
