It looks like some Chelsea fans are in dreamland.
dont fool yourself..they won't be spending 100m and will only buy about 2 players and none of them will be major unless it is pato
and just so everyone knows Angel Di Maria will be going to MAN UTD not chelsea

I understand that following Liverpool's Europa Lerague tie with Lille, interest has been expressed in Eden Hazard by the Reds. According to the Liverpool Echo, Christian Purslow held informal discussions with Lille representatives who quoted a ridiculous £35 Million for him, a fee that was obviously baulked at.

It seems that his performances against Liverpool have increased his reputation throughout Europe and Lille appear to have now reacted to this by hiking his fee to astronomical levels.

No one's going to buy him for that. He looks a good prospect but over the last few weeks, his fee has climbed from around £10 Million to that of an established, World–Class player.

I guess we will find out in the summer.

Arsenal targets:

Hugo Lloris
Gregory van der Wiel
Mamadou Sakho
Adam Matthews
Felipe Melo

Marouane Chamakh

Gloucester City are ready to help out their neighbours Forest Green Rovers.

The Conference South club have asked to ground–share with Rovers next season, with City paying a fee that will go towards helping out Rovers pay off their debts.

City are thought to prefer a move to Stroud rather than Cheltenham, and the agreement will also benefit them as their Cirencester base will not meet the Conference standards for next season.

Forest Green Rovers have also pencilled in a home friendly against Swansea City in order to raise money for debt repayments/HMRC.

Martin oniel will offer upwards of ten million to arsenal for theo walcott.whether walcott is a big oart of wengers plans remains too be seen but a offer of 12–15 million may be too good of deal to turn dowwn.

wenger wants seville winger perotti.he would cost big money, around 17 million but wenger sees him as a future star!!

newcastle utd have enquired about taking both carlos vela from arsenal ans dos santos of spurs on loan next year with options to buy.traore has also been linkd from arsenal.

tottenham ae ready to cash in on jamie ohara and birmingham city are ready to pay nearly ten million for the midfielder.alex mcliesh also has his eyes on wigan left back maynor figueroa and westham striker carlton cole.everton admires of stanislas!


28 Mar 2010 19:54:55
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!

I heard this weeks ago also and believe this to be true, that's why Hughes refused the Hull job.
Lennon is a fantastic Celtic man and I respect him greatly, but Celtic need a man with experience to try and turn around the fortunes of our club. They made a big mistake last summer, they won't do it again this year.

Theo walcott may now be sold in the summer. arsene has lost patience with his lack of development, and believes he can get £15m for him, he should snap any1's hand off if they offer more than £12m. his pace is his only ally, and that's clearly not enough, given his performances. sol campbell and william gallas will both sign new 1 yr deals, gallas with the option of a further year should he play enough games next season. silvestre, senderos, gilbert and merida will all leave on free transfers. fabianski will be sold for £3m, and mannone will go out on loan for a season. Almunia will be retained as number 2 for 1 more season, with Manuel Neuer coming in for £10m. Szczesny will be no.3 next season.
armand traore looks set to leave following a lack of opportunities. he may be sold in part exchange to Ajax, as arsene will look to bring in gregory vdWiel for £3m + troare.
chamakh is coming in for free, expect eduardo to go out on loan, and maybe vela too. wenger will make a guaranteed £10m bid for Lille's Eden Hazard, who would relish the chance to play for arsenal.
one of senna, melo or defour will be signed for DCM. wenger will not pay more than £12m for such a player.
wellington silva, jay emmanuel–thomas, pedro botelho, jay simpson and galindo will join up in the summer.

recap: out: Fabianski £3m, Traore P/E, Silvestre Senderos Merida Gilbert (all free), walcott £12–15m, Vela Eduardo Mannone Wilshere Sunu (loan)
in: Neuer £10m, vdWiel £3m+Traore, Senna £6m, Chamakh free, Hazard £10m, Nordtveit Galindo Botelho JET Simpson Lansbury (loan returns) Wellington Silva (work permit).

squad: Neuer/Almunia/Szczesny

I posted a long time ago that if AW leaves next season at the end of his contract that Josep Guardiola will come in and now its in a few of the sunday papers. They say they have an Arsenal insider who has stated that his name comes up in talks regularly. If AW retires from management Peter Hill–Wood will make him chairman.

Some rumours for the summer are that AW will stregthen wih top experienced players.There will b atleast 4 signings coming in.Maybe 5 if Gallas leaves on a free.
Goalkeeper– It won't be Robert Green as that's not an improvment to what they have.Wenger is expected to splash out with Lloris and Akinfeev being his top two targets.Akinfeev could be signed late in the summer because his contract is up in December and Man Utd have already stated that they want to get him on the free then so CSKA might be willing to accept a cut price offer late in the summer instead of losing him on a free.Depending if Lyon qualify for next years Champions League and how he plays in the World Cup Lloris' price could vary.Almunia will be asked to stay as a number 2.
In defence Wenger is looking to extend Gallas' contract. If not Philippe Mexes will be chased as he has falling out with Claudio Ranieri and his contract runs out in 2011 and Roma will want a fee for him this summer expected to be around 7–10 million.The other defensive targets are Savic, Sahko and Hangeland. Hangeland is the favourite as he is experienced in the PL and Fulhams run in Europe proves he can do it there aswel and right footed and Wenger has already said that he doesn't like 2 left centre halfs playing together.But 2 will only be signed if Gallas leaves on the free.Silvestre Senderos will also go on the free but Campbell will stay for 1 more season.Troare will leave also if 1st team opportunities look bleak.
On the wing Arshavin is coming 29 and rumours are that Hazard or Suarez will come in.
Chamakh looks to be coming in upfront but it won't be announced until May until both the French and English seasons are over.
Also if West Ham go down AW could make cheap bids for Carlton Cole and Scott Parker.
Cesc Fabregas will be there next season as his contract runs out in 2014 and Arsenal don't need to sell him.Merida will go on a free and Fabainski will also leave.Expect alot of the younger players to go back out on loan and vela being 1 of them.
Sagna/Eboue Gallas/Mexes Vermaelen/Djourou Clichy/Gibbs
Song/Denilson (maybe Parker)
Walcott/Arshavin/Rosicky/Hazard or Suarez
V.Persie/Chamakh/Bendtner/Eduardo/ maybe Cole


28 Mar 2010 14:13:44
Man Utd–SAF is not overly impressed with Hargreaves attitude in his rehabilitation and thinks he may have lost his mental edge. If hargo cannot prove he is ready to contribute, Utd will seriously look at Rodwell from Everton in a 17–20 million pound move. this will likely be the only significant business in the summer, unless VDS decides to retire, in which case SAF MAY look at a GK, although he has faith in Kuzscak. Again, if Scholes retires, a creative midfielder is needed, and SAF has his eye on Silva of Valencia, although he is not willing to go too far over 20 mil. expect either Rodwell or Silva, but not both, and maybe neither.


28 Mar 2010 14:30:23

Not so much a rumour, more of a fact. Reality has dawned on MON and he is aware of everything Villa fans have been aware of for some time. If we don't score we don't win, and if we don't score we are vulnerable to quality, hence 7 in the bag yesterday. Robbie Keane is on the radar but will MON actually do the deed. Also he now sees that the defence are not as solid when exposed to mobile forwards.The cheque book should be open and ready, but only for second class players who can't command a place with their clubs. When are we Villa supporters going to see MON actually take a player that other clubs are trying to buy.
IOt is doubtful if there is a single player at Villa Park that would get a place in any of the top 6 in the premiership.
So Heskey will go to WBA and Dorans will come to VP in an exchange and a bit of cash. Some other champ. clubs will be sniffing around but WBA will get him. Reo Coker will be at Spurs, an exchange for Keane. Sidwell will not stay, he wants a regular start and poss. NUFC will make a move. Beye will say bye, why he said hello nobody knows. Agbonlohar may be encouraged to move with an offer from Everton, his pace will suit Arteta's style. Young iis a target for Man U. and Villa may be tempted to get money to buy a striker. Downing is well able to supply the cross's for a striker. And Milner will be hunted by M an. U. and 'Pool, little chance of Villa keeping him with offers from these clubs. Next season will be tough for Villa, don't expect anymore than top half at the finish. Come to think of it, probably the same as this season. MON has won nothing yet, promissed a lot but so does my wife!!


28 Mar 2010 14:59:32

28 Mar 2010 07:13:34
West Ham News:

Gianfranco Zola 90% certain to walk within the next 24 hours.

Zola is far from happy at the way he and his team have been treated by the owners, and there is also a clash of personalities with Zola being a devout Catholic whos beliefs are at odds with the business dealings of the club owners.

It is likely that Zola will head abroad for his next managerial duty, however Cardiff City could approach him to be their new manager if they are promoted. Zola only wants a job in the EPL/SPL/Mainland Europe.


28 Mar 2010 08:50:10
Is there any newcastle united rumors for when we get promoted please!!


28 Mar 2010 08:55:08
Listen up people, the toon will not be making any big name signings this summer, as fat ash, has made it clear, that no money will be spent! only loan signings and youngsters will be brought in. players in toon now, will be offered pay cuts or sold! expect the toon to be a yo yo club for a few seasons, unless new owners come in and save us! on a plus point thou, 6 points off the SMB next season!
