With Smith and Townsend gone, and Leicester agreeing to pay Mills' wages, Neil Warnock is still looking to bring two other players to Leeds before the Southampton game at the weekend. One could be Clint Hill; sooner than I expected, and the other may be Paul Robinson or Shaun Derry.


27 Feb 2012 18:10:23
David Bentley to join Middlesbrough on loan for 90 days, having a medical today and will sign loan papers on Tuesday. Looks like a sweetner for a possible move for mathew bates to Spurs in the summer.(18)(6)Is Bentley not out for the season me thinks he was on loan at Westham and picked up a knee injury ruling him out till July!!Bentley out for the season


27 Feb 2012 17:30:19
Jamie Mackie QPR to Oxford on loan. Expected to start in Saturdays local derby.(4)(51) 

No, dont believe this one bit. We dont need a forward. Midfield - yes, problems there but we have plenty of forwards - they dont score that many I grant you thatOxford fans getting way above their station with this one. I'll put my money on Mackie not going to anyone with only 3 stands...Far too good for Oxford United, obviously.What the same Jamie Mackie who scored twice for Mark Huhges at Blackburn and was playing from the start against Fulham last Saturday??? Dont be so stupid, why would he swap Premiership for League 2?????Why would a player want to go to a club that is still of the mind set of a conference club only three sides to the stadium? they are really ambitious?? notIf we were letting mackie out on loan warnock would of come in for him so no chance OxfordNot even in football manager

27 Feb 2012 15:05:44
following the trend i'm gonna have a go at who i think should be in the england team at the euros this summer!


richards jones cahill cole

wilshere gerrard

walcott young
rooneysubs: welbeck,bent,sturridge
lampard, barry, lennon, milner
baines, smalling, g. johnson, r.ferdinand
foster, alex smithies

this team would destroy the one further down the page!(5)(21)Not being funny but jones over smalling at CB?? jones looks very suspect at the back, miles better playin centre mid and smalling is a much better player in the centre of defence!Walcott, prefere lennon or adam johnson then walcottCahill is a liability.
Rooney is out for most of the euro's so time for No 9 Bent to shine!Hart,Richards,Terry,cahill,Cole
Lampard,smalling,walcott,welbeck,Johnson,milner and Lennon .
Rooney is suspended for first two games and gerrard has never been any good for England .wilshire if fit is the real future for us not some injury prone scouserDisagree..would pick jones over smalling any day...dunno why u got rooney starting though he's banned 4 1st 2 games, i'd go with sturridgeYe a know rooney is banned for 1st two games but not for the rest of the euros. 1st 2 games i would probaly go with bent if fit! walcott in team for pace, plus played well ystday.. do rate smalling at cb but sticking with jones future legend..... some1 going on about wilshire like i didn't pick him but i did. just a bit of fun anyways but sticking by it and gerrard better than barry! only thing might change would be to bring chamberlain on benchBaines is better than cole, easilyGerrard is rubbish,very overrated and very poor for England.Barry,wilshire and Parker with maybe milner and Adam Johnson24 man squad? Are we aloud to take an extra player then? Oh, and Foster has stood down from international duty since last season.Bent is out for the euro's with an ankle injury.
Oxlade Chamberlain?24 man whoops in that case i'd take out bent cos of ankle injury.... and honestly think foster would go if asked. now capellos gone!Ye i'd put chamberlain on bench? wouldn't even take adam johnson... downing was closer for picking than him!I believe that Nathan Dyer and Danny Graham should be in the England squad, Even if they have to be placed in the subs.Grant holt and john ruddy for england!!My England team would be as follow:
Richards, Smalling, Probably Cahill, Baines
Rooney, Welbeck/ Sturridge

Subs:Foster/Green, Walker, Lescott, Wilshere, Lampard, Young & Welbeck/ SturridgeMy team would be:
Richards, Jagielka, Lescott, Baines
Milner, Wilshere, Parker(c), Young,
Sturridge, Rooney

Subs: Ruddy/Foster, Walker, Smalling, Downing, Gerrard, Jones, Danny Graham.YESS!
Would love to see Grant Holt, he's shown his ability and that he's able to score in the Prem so why not?
He may not look the part but he's not getting any younger and definitely deserves a shot!

Others such as, Danny Rose, Pilkington, Rodwell, Shawcross, Bringing Crouch back?, Whittingham, Leon Britton, Scott Sinclair, Graham, O'Hara, Frimpong but think he's pledged to Ghana, Lallana, Lambert, Tomkins etc #GivethemachanceDefoe should go, he's got the same amount of goals as bent in much less minutes. While people would say he hasn't played enough, I tihnk that would be an advantage, as the Greece side that won Euro 2004, had players at good teams, but they were all on the fringes and not the 'superstars' so they hadn't played a 30+ game season beforehand. Also someone like bent has to wait for the defence splitting pass on the back shoulder of the defence-something that doesn't always come in cagey, defensive international football, whereas defoe can just recieve the ball to feet and have a shot, and a lot of the time he'll score


27 Feb 2012 14:03:20
Summer transfer deals
Carlos tevez to acmilan.
Hazard to aresnal.
Adel rami to valencia.

Watford striker Marvin Sordell joining West Ham on loan with a view to a £2m switch in the summer.(6)(50)Isnt he at BoltonSordell plays for bolton? awkwardOpps ! - Think you will find he already signed for Bolton Wanderers, where have you been on the moon ?I dont think so....signed for Bolton three weeks agoNah his loan to Bolton got cancelled. Trust me.He signed for Bolton not loaned..Was definitely a loan, my mate is a physio at Bolton and told me.No mate, he signed permanentlyHow are people so clueless? He signed on loan!Ru unhinged? He signed a permanent deal at Bolton on the last day of the transfer window. Was one of the last deals to go through, Watford to get extra cash if he helps Bolton stay up. Stop posting lies.Sordell is a Bolton player, they paid 3.5 million for him not loanedSigned on loan....ahhhhhaha. Your so called mate has wound you right up. He has officaily signed for Bolton. Stop now becasue your making yourself look sillyIs your mate at Bolton a physio or psycho?
Sordell definitely signed a permanent deal with Bolton on the last day of the transfer window.Your "mate" the physio is a bloody person then, read bbc transfer page from jan. God some people really are deluded...even if he was on LOAN, which he is NOT. West ham have already signed a ridiculous amount of attacking players


27 Feb 2012 12:36:30
Gavin Massey back to Colchester on loan.

Connor Smith to Forest Green Rovers on loan after he signs a pro deal with Watford. Although if Wealdstone reach Wembley the club will let him stay with the Stones for the rest of the season.(9)(4)


27 Feb 2012 11:58:10
Reading have been knocked back in a bid to sign Jay Bothroyd on loan until the end of the season with a view to a £1.5m permanent signing in the summer.(6)(8)Good he's a tw@tHmm, I heard we wanted a loan but no mention about a perm deal at the end of it.

At this level he would be a good signing.Going back to Cardiff realised made a big mistake by leaving them in the first place.


27 Feb 2012 10:03:43
Steve Maclean set to join League 2 cheltenham on loan from Yeovil in the next day or so.(9)(6)He was with us at Oxford and was so frustrating and even lazy. When he wanted to he was quality but then went missing for haldf an hour! Would have thought Cheltenham could carry on there good season without him. Quality side


27 Feb 2012 09:42:19
Jonjo Shelvey is not going to Middlesbrough on loan, and Liverpool will let Blackpool know if Shelvey is available for loan. Blackpool Gazette.(12)(18)I know the word fact doesn't mean a lot on this site but he is travelling straight up to Middlesbrough from London today. Fact.No he's not!I'm a Middlesbrough fan gutted as I am tony Mowbray said on northern echo he is not signing shelveyBeen seen at Boro's training ground. Boom, bow before me.Definitely not signing for Boro. Holloway has asked Liverpool to keep him informed.


27 Feb 2012 00:16:35
Norwich City are looking at bringing in scottish duo David Templeton and Charlie Mulgrew in the summer transfer window(5)(25)Templeton is going to Watford.Charlie too important to celtic now, wont sell for less than 3mMulgrew goin no where.celtic about to dominate in scotland for a long time n charlies goin to b a huge part of it.a celtic great in norwich n ex celt paul lambert but not gettin mulgrewAbsolute Rubbish! Get a Grip!Lambert would not be interested in Templeton, perhaps he might look at Mulgrew for the LB position if he does not get Chris Gunter from Forest.
If the right offer came in Mulgrew would definately look at premier league simply because it will improve his game in a much higher level of competition the EPL.
Certainly His wages would not be a problem.

Leeds United INS
Matt Mills - Loan
Danny Webber - Free Agent
Carlos Edwards - Loan
Clint Hill - Loan
Shaun Derry - Maybe(10)(37)Im not saying i disagree with you. but all im gonna say is dont beleive all you read... lol. derry and mills id take in a heartbeat. not fond of edwards or clint (red card waiting to happen) hill. webber would liven us up at the sharp endWhen Leeds get Matt mills on loan they won't want him 4 long because he the worst defender in the championship!'The worst defender in the championship'? u feeling alright? his form is just poor...he captained reading to play-off final last season so he can hardly b that bad!All you Leeds fans, you will get the same old culprits, soon to be over the hill has been's that might just stimulate the team enough to make the play offs, and then you will be in championship next season, If Warnock survives till then him and Bates in the same room - ha ha Expect Snodgrass and any other decent footballers to have been sold by thenU obviously haven't been to a Leicester game? You dnt know nothing! just because reading got to the playoff final doesn't mean he's good, he just kicks it out of play and carnt mark at all !!Considering im a Leicester season ticket holder ive been to plenty of games...and i yhink you talking i said its down to poor form and constant changes at the back...i guarentee he will improve and if Leicester get rid they would be making a big mistakeYet Reading got rid and it proved the best thing we ever did. He was a trouble maker. He unsettled the dressing room. He would point the finger at everyone but himself. He would lunge in and give away penalty after penalty. But somehow Leicester were convinced he was worth 5m. Fantastic business! Gorkss for 1m is three times the player, and immediately brought calm to the defence.

If Leeds want to push towards the Premiership then Mills will not help. If you are looking to improve from being a bottom third side towards the top ten then he'll do a job for you.I dnt talk garbage, poor form are you joking! You must be a blind old person if u carnt see how rubbish he is! N I bet half of Leicester disagree with you!How much are Leicester paying Mills a week? Didn't he become their highest earner? What, ten grand, twelve grand plus? Are they paying some of his wages if he does go on loan to another Championship team? Club is run like a joke.All the leicester fans i know would agree wiv me which is a hell of alot as im frm New Parks...and i ur original post u claim him to be 'Worst defender in the championship' that is utter garbage and even someone as deluded as u can see that"Reading got rid" don't make me chuckle you only sold him because you got 5 million for the boy. Bargain, great leader, sour grapes

Former frontman of the band 'Bad
Company', Brian Howe, has returned
to his hometown Portsmouth, from
the USA, and is looking to work with
the Trust set up by supporters, with a
view of funding part of their proposed
takeover. The Trust is seen as a
credible option by the Administrator
and if membership continues to
increase, expect a bid within the next
four weeks.(8)(26)Portsmouth newspaper today seems to confirm that Brian Howe is indeed back in Portsmouth and was at the game on Sat.Strange as he is not even in the country. He has no interest in buying Portsmouth. Grasping at smoke Pompey fans.Howe was on local radio station Monday night and was in the Director's box last Sat, so he most definitely is in this country and has now confirmed an interest in buying the club along with some US based businessmen.From one bad company to another


26 Feb 2012 19:30:51
is jonjoe shevly going 2 reading on loan ???(6)(27)Shelvey signing for boroMIDDLESBOROReading have not made an approach. Boro and Blackpool have enquired. Boro are favourites.First I've heard of any Reading interest. Wrong type of personality. Had his issues off field.


26 Feb 2012 19:30:16
Andrew Crofts will NOT be leaving Norwich City in the summer unless Paul Lambert signs one more midfielder.

Paul will NOT release Adam Drury either as he is set to retire at the end of the season.(3)(10)He will almost certainly sell on crofts to a championship club simply because he will look to bring in another midfielder as crofts has not made the same impact at premier level.
If Drury is set to retire then isn't that the same thing as Lambert releasing him, however I suspect Drury may return to Peterboro on a free transfer as he has a year or two left in him at championship level.
I actually believe the following players will all be moved on in the summer to make way for replacements as Lambert is ambitious and will not allow sentiment to get in the way.
Drury, Wilbraham, Chris Martin,Crofts and Lappin, Also possibly Leon Barnett could go.
Lambert will look to bring in right back, a left back, at least 2 new midfielders and another forward.
I believe he will try to buy Kyle Naughton assuming they can agree fee and terms with player.
He will also bring back Korey Smith and Tom Adeyemi from their loan spells and look to involve them next season to see if they can make the step up to prem level.Drury is worth another year and after recent performances should be nowhere near retirement. Wilbraham good enough for another year but doubt he will get it or want it. Agree Crofts, Martin, Lappin and Barnett. Zak W must sign new contract though. Smith and Adeyemi to get more experience before PL experience. Whittingham, Eagles and Rodrigues to suplement squad depends on promotion and relegation.


26 Feb 2012 19:22:45
QPR are expecting a massive clear out in the summer, which would see Tommy Smith go to Watford.(23)(6)Massive one player?Who the hell would want them.Posted by a hopeful Watford fan, maybe there manager


26 Feb 2012 19:21:41
Sunderland boss Martin O'Neill is set to make a summer bid for Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Foster. Foster is currently on loan at Premier League rivals West Brom but has impressed O'Neill in recent months.(14)(12)Mon hopes to tempt craig gordon to sign a new contract so why go for foster who is a good goalie but no logic in that moveFoster wont move out the Midlands as he has stated that his family is settled in Leamington ,so he,ll either stop at the Baggies or move back to Blues if they are promoted,


26 Feb 2012 16:57:14
striker joining town this coming week, now that wage bill has gone down.
will be from premiere has attended last 2 home games so it's wait and see(7)(16)Town is that northampton/ipswich/
luton/swindon/huddersfield/or any of the other towns floating aroundSwindon he's talking about and Paolo does have a striker lined up to come in this week now Magera has gone on loan to a Czech team.


26 Feb 2012 10:14:11
Barnsley have loaned out Reuben Noble-Lazuras To Huddersfield.(5)(33)Is he taking his bed


26 Feb 2012 08:19:57
Derby looking to appoint Jim Rutherford from Carolina Hurricanes (NHL) as director of football. Rutherford is well known to the Canadian contingent of GSE and would be a cheaper option to what is currently available in England.(2)(10)Absolute rubbishComing from the NHL might be a good signing as we certainly ain't a football team at the momentWake up We play Football not Ice hockey you muppet, he will know nothing about the sport, the team or the players, so what is the point of him coming?"Wake up" Nigel Clough knows nothing about the sport, the team or the players. Should fit in quite nicely... Muppet


25 Feb 2012 23:49:51
Watford are hoping to secure a loan deal for the highly rated Liverpool striker Nathan Eccleston.(19)(11)Highly rated by who? finhell he's worse than gardner n thats sayin summet! where did all your danny graham money go?Not sure who Gardner is? And the Graham money? Well unlike a lot of clubs in the country we're paying off our debt with transfer fees we receive every window and will hopefully be debt free next season. If that means surviving on cheap signings and loans for a few seasons then so be it! Rather have a club than go under like those embarrassments on the south coast!I agree with the above comment. Eccelston is a good player, maybe not "Liverpool worthy" but he isn't bad. He'll be a good temporary cover for Sordell.We don't need cover for Sordell we need a replacement!Sorry joe garner not gardner..... still eccleston is absolutely useless!He was not good enough for an ave L1 side when on loan,think it was Huddersfield.


25 Feb 2012 20:33:22
Lee Clark to be appointed new Bournemouth manager after Lee Bradbury will fall into pressure from the AFCB fans to resign.(2)(24)Ye? would you want him tho? LC enjoys spending money which you've got so might go for it... don't think donal mcdermott would be too happy haha. LC got wrong quite alot at htfc believe me! would be strange if he took you to play offs and were to meet again!I'd stick with manager you got clark not bad manager he just does'nt seem to have a clue how to change it when going wrong plus spent 12 million and used 70 yes 70 different players in 4 years and last seasons play off final playing 1 man up front against a team that had conceded god knows how many goals wrong tactics id leave well alone good luck for rest of seasonI don't think anyone would want to work for their chairman


25 Feb 2012 20:26:57
I heard that Matt mills is going to Leeds on loan, I hope this is true because he's useless!(24)(20)I hope this is true. His two types of distribution are kick it long or kick it longer.Football league show says Reading or MiddelsboroTerrible attitude. Always pointing the finger at his team mates. How we got 5m for him I don't know. He's decent enough tho, but he really needs to grow up, not sulk when dropped, and learn to be a team player and a leader.You got 5M for him because no one else except Sven Erikson was stupid enough to pay that kind of money for a player that is probably worth half of that in today's market.Matt Mills is one the best defenders in championship at the moment this would be a great signing for us! TEAM WARNOCK MOTUseless under a useless manager,maybe do well at leeds under the reigning manager of last seasons champions.


25 Feb 2012 14:16:38
olie given a 2 year contract extension(11)(6)


25 Feb 2012 13:37:03
I hear that AVB has had his marching orders - Rafa will be appointed before the weekend is out!(5)(51)Clearly Mate, AVB is on the touchline as we speak! AVB will not get sacked, he's here to change the team and complete his 'project'. It wont happen in 1/2 season!Cobblers


25 Feb 2012 12:19:48
Sheffield United and Huddersfield are both trying to get James Wilson Bristol City centre back in on loan till the end of the season City are considering the offers as Carey Nyatanger and Mcmannus will al be fit next week so Wilson will be 5th choice at AG(8)(13)Htfc don't need anymore CB's! especially not 5th choice at a team that can't defend to save their lives!Wilson is a top class young cb, that needs experience in league 1 before he jumps straight into the championship. We need experience not youth at the moment, so be quiet and shut up and don't put things up here if you don't have a fk what ur on aboutHuddersfield got 2 cb in clarke and mccombe who already have experience of championship football and morrison from reading,who last time i checked were better than bristol city!! he's been only cb we've had on loan from any championship club that could get in our team and reading rate him highly! I'M sure he'll get plenty of league 1 experience with you bike riding west country weirdos when your there next season! oh maybe not because he'll probably leave you, cos no ambition, wont be long til the big west country derbys will be back where they belong
bottom of the ladder! maybe you should have a little think yourself before asking your mum/missus (same person) to type up your next msg! UTT! muppets!I have been told Wilson will be at Barnsley before the end of next week if the board at city allow him to go to another championship club if not he will go to Yeovil to get gamesCity- championship team
Huddersfield - leag 1
Truth hurts2012 -2013 season
huddersfield - championship
bristol stty - league 1
that must hurt!
but surely not as much a knowing your from bristol!I think you are forgetting McCombe left Bristol City for Hudderfield because he wasn't good enough for the championship. Wilson is a highly rated CB who should get into Huddersfield team realistically. I am not going to start name calling but Huddersfield aren't definitely going up and shouldn't because of the way they treated their manager.Funny i thought mccombe was a bit of a fans favourite and didn't you vote player of the season? only people who NEVER watch huddersfield think lee clark is a good manager when the truth is he got it wrong all the time, couldnt change things when it wasnt going right, he had an open cheque book and brought in FIFTY (50) players in 3 years.... htfc got the best squad in lg1 by far yet clark was dragging us around in 4th!!


25 Feb 2012 11:12:41
matt mills to join leeds on loan from leicester(22)(32)Good they can have him he's absolute crap! Not worth 1m let alone 5mWho clicked 'unbelievable;' this deal has already been agreed!


25 Feb 2012 05:49:43
QPR transfer target Chris Samba has joined Russian side Anzhi Makhalaka.(33)(9)


25 Feb 2012 02:28:18
Wilkins to join wolves with Connor in charge an Wilkins as his number 2(16)(22)


25 Feb 2012 01:01:11
this is just a smug text about 28.01.12 ,chris samba was on 65k a week and wanted to double his wage that is why no english club would touch him.(15)(6)


25 Feb 2012 01:02:53
