HMFC/Kaunas Loan Deals

I have been told from a mate who is brothers with a member of the Hearts first team coaching staff that 2 more Kaunas players will arrive. These will be strikers Aivaras Laurišas and Lukas Kochanauskas. Both of these players will sign loan deals for 6 months with the option of extending the deal.


I know that this is probably the craziest rumour (I mean fact!!) ever posted on here, but Rafa Benitez and Christian Purslow met with Alex Ferguson and David Gill in a Manchester hotel last night. They met to discuss the mess that they both find their clubs in and tried to find solutions on how to force the Americans out of their respective clubs. David Gill brought two fellow high ranked members of the FA with him. What came out of the meeting is that they hope to enforce a "fit and proper persons test" on every Premiership club owner. This currently only applies to people looking to buy clubs but they hope to enforce it on current owners. This is a huge, ground breaking rule change and David Gill,who came up with the idea, knew he would stand a much better chance of succeeding if he got Liverpool on board. The two biggest powers in English football pulling together stand a good chance. However, don't worry, I've been assured that Rafa and Fergie barely spoke to eachother and, to put it mildly, still aren't fond of eachother. However, both men genuinly fear for their jobs and the future of their clubs so it is a small price to pay.
Mumbly Joe


Michael Essien stormed out of training today complaining about Acellotti's tactics.
A lot of murmurs of agreement are being heard!!
Wobbly bob


Roy Keane is going to go mad monday and tuesday very unhappy with the players his got and prob only wants 6 of them, Expect to see 2 or 3 leave 4 bought and two loans as Keane starts to put his stamp on things.Be ready for a player the Town have'nt being linked with


"There are however, interested parties wishing to buy out the clubs, but are biding their time until the unthinkable happens. . administration.

Sad and worrying times ahead!"
ngiak is very tickled at the extent anti manu and liverpool fans will go to run us down.
this is a very unfunny rumour circulating in this website
btw, ngiak can speak for man u, and its certain that a bulk of the ronaldo cash has gone to the debt, but the youngsters coming in are good as are most of the members of our multiple championship winning team. . eg hazard, sanchez, ljajic, dodo and our own kids in macheda, welbeck, gibson, etc
another goalkeeper is also arriving soon. . german and young. .


Heard that Bolton are close to re–signing Kevin Nolan from championship outfit (ouch!) Newcastle United. I am not entirely sure why he left in the first place, but hopefully he will join along with Cameroon star Emana who currently plays for Real Betis.
Finally, to the Newcastle fan who proclaimed that Bolton would allow the Magpies to have Jamaican Ricardo Gardner on a loan spell. He has been very injury prone lately, which isn't a great turn–on and would otherwise make it into the first team I hope, because he is a key player in my opinion and a hit with the fans.


Glasgow Rangers will sign 3 players before tuesdays deadline,the main one will be a CB tonnel,a CM James mcarthur And LM Peter lovenkrans,Rangers are also wanting 2 lone players from the prem 1 is from Man U(LB ,RB ?),the other one is from Arsenal (CF)
Watch Saturdays Newspaper for a Big RFC Headline!!
Stand up for the champions 1 in a row 9 more to go



Liverpool don't have the money to sign a big money striker, but can afford the wages. I have it on good authority that VAN NISTLEROOY will be arriving at liverpool airport on the sunday morning flight. He will be undertaking a medical on sunday.


Breaking news for Man United:

Eden Hazard and Alexis Sanchez will both sign for United on the deadline day.
Fergie was prepared to swoop for Douglas Costa but his club Gremio are demanding too much of a fee that's why Fergie has turned his attention to long term Arsenal target Hazard.
Fergie also feels he needs another versatile player who can play on the wing as well as in the attack that's why he is ready to swoop for Sanchez. i can exclusively reveal that sanchez deal is almost done and a bid has been made for Hazard.


"ne1 care ta shine some light on dat brazilian center back dodo. .? Cheers
LilJ (cork)" Dodo will join up with Manchester United in January after his 18th birthday.


Hull are going to swoop for Cardiff's Chopra and Ross McCormack, both have made it been known that they want to play in the premier league.


I work in anfield and i have been hearing that there is a big money company looking to buy the club for around 400 mil also rafa is looking at strikers to back torres up most likely to be hulk or vdv

remember the name lfc 4 life


Janko to celtic is a deffo. 5million in the end up but the big cs worth it HERE WE GO 1 IN A ROW :D Soldirs are we(8)


I've heard from a pretty solid source that Mbark Boussoufa of Anderlecht is set to sign for Tottenham.He flew from Brussels to Heathrow on Friday to negotiate terms with Harry Redknapp. The fee is between £5–6m, and includes performance related clauses. Rememeber you heard it here first – LM


Spurs newest recruit: Platini!

By forcing clubs to balance the books or face Champions League sanctions, it will make life a little easier. I say a little becasue the way accountants work there will be all sorts of loopholes and work arounds. Abramovich knows that he can afford to take a hit in the medium term but clubs that borrowed to build like Utd and LFC are not in the same position.

Maybe the suits spotted on a boat with Abramovich were the architects of this. Good rumour mate.

Nice One Daniel Levy. Internacional makes a very goog feeder club, let's hope Sandro can get a work permit.

In Harry We Hope.


Liverpool will not buy anyone else this summer.
Expect one or two in January.
Expect Aquilani to be another Dossena, overhyped, not very good. Was tipped to be a star the past 3 seasons at Roma and it never happened. He will be a goner within 2 seasons when we will get Defour.


Tottenham Trialists Update

Kevin Anin is back in France and waiting for his move to Spurs. As published in the French and English media, Spurs are asking for a season's loan with an option to by, but Le Havre want to sell outright for 2.5 million Euro's. Stoke City and a promoted club (who I believe to be Birmingham) have offered to match this valuation, but Anin himself has made it clear he wants a move to Spurs. Last I heard Le Havre were being difficult and offering the seasons loan, with an option to buy for 5 million Euro's. Expect this one to go down to deadline day, but Anin will be at Spurs, either permanantly or on loan, depending on who blinks first. Osman Chavez has impressed on trial, and the paperwork is already in place for a 1.75 million pound transfer once personal terms are agreed.


West Ham will sign Eidur Gudjohnson on loan before the close of the transfer window and we have already signed Alessandro Diamanti thanks to SBOBET helping us out with cash, so we have sorted out our strikers. We will be bought out before January and will be able to spend a little cash if we need too. So look forward to a good season for the Hammers.


Swansea City are hoping to bring out of favour Coventry City stiker Freddy Eastwood to the Liberty Stadium. As well as hoping for him to rediscover his Southend United form it is hoped that, due to his background, he can be a role model for the local kids.

They are also in discussion with Scunthorpe United's Niall Caravan to give manager Paulo Sousa some cover and allow him to tinker with his defence.

Norwich City's Wes Hoolahan is another target for the Swans, though his wife Heather is not fussed on the move after already travelling from Blackpool to Norwich.


Everton news,

Joao moutinho has hinted that he will be handing in a transfer request after hearing everton are going to be bidding £13m bid in for the little magician


Mr Real Rumours has the following news for you:–
Yaya Toure to Man City for around £30m. Barca have already snapped up his replacement Dmytro Chygrynskiy.
Ribery to Madrid now on. Bayern have bought Robben as his replacement and Madrid have sold Sniedjer to Inter to help fund this.
Rafa and Wenger want Van de Vaart. Rafa can only afford a loan, but Madrid want cash (Euro 10–12m) to help fund Ribery acquisition. Wenger now has Champions League qualification and therefore has the cash to go for Van der Vart but is trying as usual to get him on the cheap. May well enable Man City to capture him instead.
Quaresma to Liverpool on Loan


SAF was not at emirates to see mc geady, but to see uniteds next opponents, arsenal

robben signing for munich paves the way for ribery to leave. .the choice is up to him as madrid, milans, united, city, chelsea and arsenal are his options. .but he won't be leaving till january at the earliest.

Red shadow


All reds fans this is what we've had nightmares about I have just heard from a clos friend who works at our grat club that rafa will walk this weknd if funds aren't made available before tdl and guess who's said they'll follow yes people stevie and fernando believe me as a pool supporter this is very hard too swallow bloody yanks are gonna run this club into the ground we have too get them out now



Joe Ledley is currently in talks with Peter Ridsdale over a new contract and Dave Jones will insert a get out clause in his contract for around about 6 million. Expect a number of premiership clubs knocking on the door next summer. However, as he adores cardiff city if they continue their amazin form and make it to the premiership then he will gladly stay. Peter Whittingham isn't going to Tenerife CD but he is goin on holiday to tenerife lol. Solomon Taiwo signed for 250,000 and expect city to wrap up a deal for Julian Gray who has impressed during a trial and will give DJ some more midfield options. Also expect one more player to arrive before the end of the transfer window. Ive heard that Darron Gibson could be on the way on a season long loan aswell as a move for Wigans Ben Watson as he is unsettled at the DW.




Black times indeed. I am now in a position to reveal what should have been. Liverpool’s number 7 would have been David Villa in a €37.5M move. The other squad player I mentioned would have been Mati. This was done and dusted with the exception of the final contracts right up until a fortnight ago, then the Americans stopped it and took the ‘War Kitty’ of some £38M away from Rafa to service debt interest payments. But it isn’t just us. My source is impeccable and highly placed. I do not as a rule talk about our deadly rivals the dreaded Man Utd. But they to have been shafted. This week, Purple–Nose was hoping to unveil the double signing of Alexei Sanchez and Sergio Aguero. The bulk of the Ronaldo money would pay for this except that their Americans have done the same as ours and done a runner with the money. In addition, SAF has been told that any serious offer for any player is to be considered so long as it’s payment in full. Sad, sad times that will probably result in the shift of football power from the North West to London (Chelsea & Arsenal) for a decade at least.

Sitting Bull was right – they did indeed speak with forked tongue.

Onwards to fourth place and a bit of a cup run!


Notts County are close to signing Strasbourg 19 year old Forward Magaye Gueye for 1M after the weekend plus 400,000 if Notts are promoted

this is another SGE signing for notts has eriksson was watching him when he was at man city and the player was only 16


Dundee United captain Lee Wilkie has failed in his comeback attempt from knee surgery and will retire from the game next week.


Stoke City Rumours.

With Huth coming in, expect Andrew Davies to move out on loan, Ipswich and former club Middlesborogh rumoured to be interested.

Pulis recently watched a Leeds game with to watch Beckford incase the Tuncay deal fell though, however he was impressed by Snodgrass and has made an enquiry. Leeds are unlikely to want to sell as they are not desperate for cash after the Delph deal, so will hold on until January, with an agreement in place to sell if Leeds are not challenging.



Well , I am a huge LFC fan , and i have heard from a reliable sorce that liverpool have signed a russian winger who is 21 and scored 28 goals last season fot CSKA Moscow . . and regarding the rafa rumour is he really going , is torres and gerrard leaving ??? Hope not , any more LFC rumours that are true!!!!

King K ;)


Hearing broony is off to the toffees for the region of 8 million if it gos through. . hope not as a tic fan as theres no time for replacements


Deportivo Cali/Seattle Sounders Star Fredy Montero will sign for England Championship team Bristol City on Tuesday. Fees for his parent club were agreed over 2 months ago.

Only 9 games left on the roster for the sounders season.


Franck Ribery will be joining Real Madrid next summer because part of the Arjen Robben deal to Bayern Munich allows Real first refusal on Ribery!
Man Utd will lok to invest in youth before the transfer window closes (cheaper options to keep yanks happy). Expect bids for Eden Hazard, Alexis Sanchez, Alex Witzel and Ryan Shawcress. Rumours of administration and SAF walking are wide of the mark.


To whoever wrote this

"Some Hearts fan wrote: "Everton Fc this afternoon submitted a fax to Hearts with an offer of £5 million for winger Andrew Driver and left back Lee Wallace. Boss David Moyes has also offered to loan American striker Cody Arnoux to Hearts for 6 months as part of the deal." – HEY, when was the last time anybody you know used a fax machine?! I know Edinburgh is a historic city and maybe you are trying to promote that fact to potential tourists, BUT C'MON. . IT AIN'T 1992 ANYMORE!"

I work for Huddersfield Town Football Club, and confirm all offers for players are done by fax, as the offer has to writing and not Email. On to my club, I can't name names but a Norwich City player is due here today for talks. Watch this space. Other than that, our business is pretty much closed, until the Newcastle situation is sorted, then one or two fringe players may come in on Loan.


Portsmouth wants dutch defender Marcel Seip to replace Sylvain Distin, who is off to the Toffees.

Marcel looks no longer happy at Plymouth and he has his eyes set on a Premiership move. Pompey think they can snap him up for around 1.000.000,–

I heard this from an Porstmouth–insider



Paul Mullin will leave Accrington to go to Morecambe. This is to lighten the wage bill for Accrington who are in financial trouble.


Sunderland are putting together a £4 million deal for Hearts winger Andrew Driver, They are also watching Lee Wallace.

Newcastle will sign James Tomkins from West Ham, Kevin Phillips from Birmingham, Ricardo Gardner from Bolton and Tom Soares from Stoke all on loan until january.

Darlington will sign Trevor Carson on loan from Sunderland for the season.

Nothing on the Boro, sorry.

1. Cash strapped Liverpool are going to make a loan bid for "The Beast" (Julio Baptista) for Rafa believes he could fit well in the squad and he needs this move as the World Cup is just around the corner.

2. After seeing Michael Owen turn his career around after making a fantastic start to his 1st Manchester United debut Rafa is thinking of cashing in on another recent premier league flop with some potential which is non other than Chelsea's ANDRIY SHEVCHENKO!!!! he believes he still has some potential left and could easily bcome Liverpools second striker. (Only expect this if bid for Julio Baptista fails)

xX The Burning Flame Xx


Celtic have had a £4.75million bid for Marc Janko accepted, the player will arrive on Monday to complete the move.


I was in a pub today and overheard a couple of chaps discussing the Liverpool game on Saturday. I've heard that VDV is supposed to be a guest at the game and then will have a medical for LFC. Not saying it's the truth, but it is a rumour I've heard so make of it what you will.



Hearts f.c,
looks like hearts have ideas of brining in a new boss and owner ,romanov ,has met avram grant on a yaught in the west of scotland a couple of days ago with the chelsea owner roman obramovich,the latest rumour at hearts is that romanov wants out and is looking for high profile sale ,grant has always wanted his own club and just maybe abramovich is about to back him and becomea major player at hearts ,one thing that stands out is that romanov will not invest anymore in hearts or casba laslow,this could see casaba leaving for germany in the next few days, with grant becoming owner manager,with funds to splash in the last few days of the transfer window,either way casaba has had enough of romanov,and this will be his last game in charge at tynecastle 107


I spoke to an insider at Liverpool FC today. This guy works very very closely with 1st team players and anyone who comes to visit the club. He says the Arabs are still watching as he has entertained them on may occasions. There will be a meeting within the next few weeks with the Arabs to try and buy out LFC. Story goes like this. LFC will part ways with Benitez depending on results, King Kenny will possibly become temp caretaker manager until they temp The Special One with a move to Anfield, this will happen all under new ownership. Expect this by Christmas or very latest next summer.
This is all 110% gospel truth as it stands.
Oh yeah and NO MORE TRANSFERS unless the Yanks win the euro millions.
Also some first team regulars (Big Names) losing respect for Benitez.
Even expect Gerrard to leave if no new trophies/ownership/management next season. Contracts mean jack these days, if a player wants to go they WILL go.
Come on Middle East buy our club and lets get No 19 under the belt.



Some Hearts fan wrote: "Everton Fc this afternoon submitted a fax to Hearts with an offer of £5 million for winger Andrew Driver and left back Lee Wallace. Boss David Moyes has also offered to loan American striker Cody Arnoux to Hearts for 6 months as part of the deal." – HEY, when was the last time anybody you know used a fax machine?! I know Edinburgh is a historic city and maybe you are trying to promote that fact to potential tourists, BUT C'MON. . IT AIN'T 1992 ANYMORE! Real rumour from very good source at Evening News: Czaba Lazlo is going to quit Hearts literally any second because of the lack of investment from Romanov – it may even have happened by the time this is posted up on this wonderful website i love so much! After the failure to progress in the Europa league Lazlo will cut ties with the Edinburgh club, frustrated at the club's failure to buy any decent players at all. Worrying times for Hearts – only a madman would want that job!


~Again Man United scouts were present at the Lille vs KRC Genk match to see Eden Hazard in action.A bid for him is very imminent.~


A last flurry of season long loans and signing attempts from Moxey, McCarthy and Morgan at Wolves, mainly from Manchester City:

Petrov – Man City – loan until end of season
Castillo – Man City – loan until end of season
Degen – Liverpool – 6 month loan
M.Johnson – Man City – £2.5m
Naylor – Celtic – Free
Maierhoffer – R.Vienna – £3m

Unlikely Wolves approaches :
Nolan – Newcastle – Wage demands too high with Bolton circling
Wheater – Boro – Wants to stay at Boro or go to one of top 6/7 for a season
Dossena – Liverpool – Steve Morgan has tried to influence the situation but unlike Degen the player wants Liverpool, Italy or nothing.
Gardner and Shorey – Villa – Dont want to move

No more on Mbami – all quiet at Compton



First time post, but have a very reliable source, connected to both clubs.

The Yanks at both clubs are refusing to release any more money for new signings to their respective managers, add to the fact that both managers Rafa Benitez and Sir Alex Ferguson will do the unthinkable and walk out (a week apart), which in turn will lead to a mass exodus of players of who are already unsettled and who will leave in disgust at the treatments of their managers (read Liverpool defeat to Villa) and at Man Utd.

Very hard times ahead for both teams, not just this season but next few seasons as well. Expect mass supporter protest to happen too.

The american owners are simply taking all the clubs profits and servicing their debts. They have found it difficult to source new extra funding to ease their debt mountains. RBS are still putting huge pressure on LFC to repay their loans even though it was re–negotiated a month ago. The glazers reneged on their word and took all of the ronaldo money to service the interest payments. SAF is fuming as is Rafa. This will be the big news in the coming weeks, and it may be no coincidence that the money problems are related to to both of the clubs american owners.

There are however, interested parties wishing to buy out the clubs, but are biding their time until the unthinkable happens. . administration.

Sad and worrying times ahead!


Breaking news hearts out Europe ha ha

I work in the Marriot hotel in Liverpool city centre, just finished work about 30 mins ago. (its 12.20am) Ross McCormick of Cardiff City checked in at about 11:30pm with someone (i think it was his agent), he's staying over for next two nights. I think he could be on his way to Everton. He asked for 7:30am wake up call. This is the gospel truth. D–Man!!! I hope i'm proved right tomorrow. Check out skysports news.
you heard it off "D–man!!!"
