Robinho to Tottenham in the summer(7)(42)I really hope this is going to happen!! im a spurs supporter and either robinho or guisippe rossi or (its even rumoured we could get both!) would be amazing and would completely change the greatness of our squaadI heard we'd sign alfredo di stefano as well...Spurs can only buy when they sell and id rather have modric and bale then robinho any day rossi is good but will probably go to juventus or inter and dont forget u need to find the money to keep adebayor ffirstWill never happen and if it did you will see the same lazy player as was at man city only playing when he wants to ansd saying its a dream come true to play for Arsneal I mean Spurs.Personally, would love to see Robinho at Tottenham. He's one of the laziest players in the game and after his stint at Man City I can't believe anyone would consider bringing him back to the Premier League...go ahead Tottenham! Awful fans. Awful manager. No class. No style.

01 Apr 2012 09:33:15
fulham midfielder dickson etuhu is set to join wba in the summer after admitting he doesnt want to sign a new deal at fulham(13)(10)More likely Fulham don't want to re-sign him again, out of favour recently and is close to his sell by date, likely a free transfer, and I am not sure there will be many takers in premier league.Dont blame him noone wants to play at a shed... And they call it a cottage!!

01 Apr 2012 08:27:30
Huddersfield Town's Jordan Rhodes is going to Newcastle United in the summer to replace the departing Demba Ba with a fee off £8.5 million plus add ons set to get him(7)(45)8.5m what planet are you on.
He's worth 2.5m tops with add ons.
Why would a prem club pay that amount on a player which would be a gamble, when there are proven players around for less?8.5m, you must be jokingAccording to Sunday papers Lambert has asked Huddersfield about getting Rhodes in the summer, fee is Likely to be 3M + add on's.
He ain't going to fetch 8M that;s for sure.
Also Huddersfield will keep him with improved contract if they get promoted to Championship, unless someone quoted stupid money like the 8M mentioned, and no sane Manager is going to gamble that big on a player who may or may not be able to step up 2 div's....10m no problem.the step up isnt as great as many think.lambert is flying in the championship and will carry on in the will rhodes.everton bound.Seeing that town turned down offers of 5 million from west ham to name but one they are not going to accept less. i have also heared that deal has been done at newcastle for 8 and1/2 million plus add ons.Demba Ba one of the best strikers in the league replaced by a play that would struggle in championship


01 Apr 2012 02:37:02

chinedu vine,george colson,elliot wheeler,dan butler,sam magri,lewis tallack and also bring back marlon pack and matt ritchie
portsmouth fc first team 2012/13:

26-ben haim


01 Apr 2012 01:48:02
Luke Shaw is desperate to leave Southampton to go to Arsenal if an offer is tabled, but it would take a big bid to persuade saints, even for a player who is yet to make a first team appearance. Got told this by a teacher who teaches the youngsters at saints so 100% reliable.(12)(23)Seems like a load of rubbish to me
And he DOES have a first team appearance, he made his debut as a sub in the FA cupHes not good enough


31 Mar 2012 22:09:27
Ipswich to make a shock 3m for Gary hooper in the summer(7)(32)Maybe need to offer at least doubleIt'll be a shock to hooper as well lol {Ed025's Note - april fool..Yeh as if we have that sort of money and why would he come here?So he was to option to play against Barcelona, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Manchester City, United, Bayern Munich but he goes to Ipswich to play against MillwallI'm a town fan and this rumour is pure rubbish he had a chance to sign him a couple of seasons ago and didnt pursue it.


31 Mar 2012 21:34:05
alladyce doing a wonderful
job at west ham just needs a
lot more money for new
signings(15)(17)Already spent well beyond their means, if they don't go up they are in trouble.Personally I think he has done a crap job with West ham, bought many ex premier league pretty average players paying way too much on wages for championship football, some who will have little sell on value.
With the squad at his disposal they should be walking the division, instead they are playing a pretty typical brand of tough football that Sam Alladyce likes to play and they have hardly set the league alight this year. Looks more and more like the playoffs this season, and I suspect Birmingham and Blackpool will be difficult to beat in playoffs. So they may be in championship for a second year, if they are then Sam may be looking for a new job, because Gold and Sullivan expect instant promotion with the money they have spent under Sam.


31 Mar 2012 20:35:18
In my opinion we should sell of Samaras as soon as posible or if we cant just give him the boot he is ste and is just a waste of space(6)(25)


31 Mar 2012 17:57:27
Charlton to sign Ched Evans for 2 million(6)(27)Even though Evans is good we've got BWP so no thanks.Shef united paid 3m for him so y would they sell to us for 2m coming from a cafc fanDream onYou dont have 2 millionWhy would anyone pay 2m for Evans when he's out of contract this summer. If Utd go up it's highly likely Evans will stay.Ched Evans was crap for 2 seasons scoring 4 goals and then 9 last season in championship,but suddenly because he is having a good season in Div 1 he is worth the 3M Sheffield Utd paid for him, I think not.
Sheffield payed over the odds for him and I doubt one season will persuade any club to pay close to the 3M for his services, especially because he will be out of contract July 1st 2012.I remember my team Ipswich pulling out of a 1m deal at start of season based on his court case so why has his price suddenly rocketed?


31 Mar 2012 17:54:41
Norwich will sign Middlesbrough Defender and England U21 International Joe Bennett in the summer window(21)(7)Is that the player who agreed to join sunderlandWhere have you seen a rumour about him agreeing to join Sunderland, he signed a new 4-1/2 year contract in Jan 2011, so as an U21 International and just 22Yrs old he will not come cheap, suspect Middlesboro would want 2/3M + add ons if he is allowed to leave. Just the kind of Player Lambert would go for so rumour could have some meritRyan bennett is better and we already have 2 bennets!!Ryan Bennett is a CB while Joe Bennett is a LB, and Lambert will be looking for competition for Tierney to replace Drury who's contract will not be renewed in summer.


31 Mar 2012 17:06:54
Its the play offs again for huddersfield.league one again next season doh.rhodes and roberts will leave and we wont go up next season either......(17)(3)Rhodes to norwich...


31 Mar 2012 15:44:26
I have heard worrying rumours that Southampton's Rickie Lambert is out for the rest of the season .(29)(14)He has been passed fit to play today, so thats very unlikelyI know that no team is one man
but saints surely missed ricky today
the two up front were bad plus
a poor penalty shot by billy
sharp ricky would have buried
that and maybe a differentresultFunny how when you dont have Lambert everything falls apart. not a one man team my aNo he hasn'tYup played today and scored a hat-trick oh wait, no he didn'tIf Southampton didn't have Lambert they would be fighting for playoffs if they are lucky, unlike reading who have amazing squad depth and everyone is as important to the team as each other, got taught a lesson today as they couldn't play pass to Lambert and he will score...15 of Southampton's 23 wins this season have come without any goals from Lambert.

And the official club spokesman has said Lambert will be back in action for next Satirday's gameEasy now guys calm down, he'll be fine next week. Just strained a neck muscle piling food down it.Great news JUST HEARD HE WILL BE FAT THIS SATURDAY


31 Mar 2012 15:02:42
swindon looking to bring in a new striker for next season, lots of talk about Jack Midson from AFC wimbledon(1)(13)


31 Mar 2012 03:54:20
Liverpool are planning for next season already and Kenny expects a few new recruits however after missing out on CL football it is highly unlikely they will be able to attract some of the top players such as Hazard,Javi Martinez and Higuain. Ryan Shawcross,David Hoilett,Jordan Rhodes,Alex Smithies,Seiydou Keita and Keisuke Honda are just some of the players being monitored. Kuyt,Maxi,Cole,Pacheco,Aurelio,Jones and Aquilani are all likely to leave the club this summer while Charlie Adam may also be sold should Keita join.(20)(20)I agree that liverpool need to get rid of the players who don,t stand a chance of playing for them and also get rid of the deadwood also when any player pulls on that red shirt they should have more pride and be privilaged to be playing for a great club otherwise then if they can,t sell them off as to the players mentioned as possible recruits for next season and if we can get them then go ahead and secure them before any1 else does but i,d still keep charlie adam but doni and jones should go along with the rest even though kuyt is still a good player and gives 100%pc every time he playsWhy would Keita come?They first "Dead Wood" name to get rid of should be DalglishWhen shola scores tomorrow Kenny will bid 35 millionNo, no, no, yes, no, no, yes, no , no
Good luck liverpool only some of these players where born after the 70's and 80'sLiverppol have spent a fortune on average players over recent years and are still 5 or 6 players off having a team capable fo being regulars in the champions league.Sorry but reina & gerrard are the only players in that LFC squad that are good enough to play champions league football.


30 Mar 2012 23:11:07
Tranmere look to secure Jake Cassidy on season long loan after a good start to his current loan period(5)(6)


30 Mar 2012 22:44:06
There is interest in many of Celtic's players from better leagues than the SPL. Beram Kayal, Scott Brown, Victor Wanyama, Gary Hooper, Joe Ledley, Ki Sung Young, Adam Matthews, James Forrest, and Emilio Izaguirre are all interesting clubs.(23)(4)Doubt it, can't see any of them being good enough for League One.Haha good jokeLeague one thing was a good joke i mean. these players will be in premiership soon it seems, or staying with CelticYes I saw Matthews is being considered by Fulham, Redknapp said he admires Forrest and will watch his progress, Villa have an interest in Ki and are monitoring Wanyamas progress, Southampton Hooper, Everton Ledley, and Man Utd are still following Kayal and the return of Izaguirre from injuryShut up about league 1
Hooper could play in the premier league
Wanyama and Brown(I think is terrible) was wanted by my side Newcastle
Ledley was wanted by Stoke
Ki, Kayal was wanted by Aston Villa, Kayal, Matthews and Izaguirre by Man Utd
Forest Tottenham

I am a Rangers fan as well as Newcastle fan I think all of them are good and could play in the premier league apart from Brown.You are a proper English aeholeThese players play in the equivalent of a pub league. There's a reason why these players have been 'linked' to moves but haven't gone anywhere. Clubs have had a good look and decided there are better options who play for the Dog and Duck! SPL, what a pointless league.Wouldn't be surprised if good offers come in for them all. Heard that Samaras is wanted by west brom too. celtic are doing really well financially and so do not have to sell unless they get really good offersIve got a question for all you up your own arse english wks that keep saying our teams (celtic and rangers) are st and wouldn't get a sniff at the prem league, if we're that bad then why are all you teams brickin it to let us into your leagues? both celtic and rangers would walk league 1 2 and 3 finishing 1st and 2nd, the championship would prove a tougher task but we would still win promotion and once we're in "the best league in the world" we would certainly be giving newcastle a run for their money!And why do Celtic and Rangers want to join the English leagues? Oh yeah because the SPL is a joke! And we're certainly not bricking it, you're Scottish you fool stay in your own country. If you do come down though you wouldn't even get out of League One! Charlton, Sheff Utd & Wed and Huddersfield are all better than you! Stick to your exciting league which is now a one horse race every year.Giving a 'stay in your own country' comment is silly considering you're in a domestic league which has a Welsh team in the top tier of their league system. If Celtic and Rangers had the same financial backing as the average league 1 team, Celtic would be able to walk it with their current crop of players.Your not really a fan at all if you support Rangers and Newcastle are you?I support Barcelona, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan and Celtic. This way I'm happy most weekends!


30 Mar 2012 22:05:50
I hear that Barca will sign Neymar in 2014 and Man U will sign Eriksen from Ajax.(12)(22)


30 Mar 2012 21:32:37
QPR loanee Federico Macheda has returned to Manchester United with an ankle injury that sees him out for the remainder of the season.(23)(3)


30 Mar 2012 20:15:59
Bournemouth are set to enquire about luton town youngster and wales u21 player jake howells(4)(3)Without haveing a full time manager i dearley doubt itHe's going to Watford. Don't want to sign a scummer but he seems pretty good.


30 Mar 2012 18:13:54
Arsenal want mario Goetse & Ricardo Montolivo.Lukas Podolski is almost definatly joining(4)(17)GotzeSuper Mario just signed a contract extension till 2016, he is going nowhere.Not a chance in hell you will get GoetzeSort their back line out is what they want to do!Gotze might go but only for 50-60 million, montolivo set to join bayern in the summer but arsenal will get podolski


30 Mar 2012 18:06:50
Paul taylor has rejected a contract offer from Peterborough(8)(10)He's having a laugh if he thinks he will get premier league football....


30 Mar 2012 14:13:57
Further To The Bristol City to enter Admin post...

I hear If Bristol Rugby Get promotion to the Rugby Premiership & City are relegated from the Championship, Lansdown will be pulling his money from BCFC inc support for the new stadium at Ashton Vale, Mr Lansdown has people looking at sites for a new stadium for the rugby club (former rolls royce site and clifton rugby club are favourites) or he will look to buy into Bristol Rovers new stadium at UWE(16)(8)


30 Mar 2012 14:11:07
Kettering Town will be wound up before the start of the 2012-13 season.

The Conference will reprieve the fourth lowest side, if it's not Kettering Town.(2)(8)The tax bill has been paid and the club will continue to run


30 Mar 2012 14:08:33
St. Johnstone will be renamed Perth St. Johnstone on Monday, in a bid to attract more people in the town to watch them.

Many people do not know where the team plays, so the addition of Perth to the club's name will help.

They will be listen on the videprinters as St. Johnstone until the end of this season and will be shown under their new name next season.(5)(16)Dont talk utter pi perth aint that big a town that the locals dont know where they come from or where they playWow,i never knew that, St Johnstone are based in Australia.......really?

Mr.Roller CoasterMakes a change from them being called St.Johnstone Nil.

Jungle Bhoy.

30 Mar 2012 13:18:06
Leicester will sign Emile Heskey on a free at the end of the season...(14)(19)What as, a scarecrow?Hope not he's more useless than Steve Howard !Hoo bloody rayWhat again. I thought he signed for you lot at the start of this season and also in the January transfer window.
Why would you need to sign him again?


30 Mar 2012 11:37:47
Ajax Amsterdam fringe player Thulani Serero will move to Swansea at the end of the season. The Swans have been keeping tabs on him since 2011 but couldnt make a move because the Amsterdam club has first option on all Ajax Cape Town players(ajax amsterdams feeder club). He has nothad much game time in Holland and his footballing style fits perfectly with the Swansea style of play.(13)(3)


30 Mar 2012 10:39:28
paul cairney of partick thistle has signed a pre contract with hibs(1)(9)If he has he must be bloody bonkers


30 Mar 2012 10:34:37
Ipswich Town are set for 5 or 6 big signings this summer! Their main aim is to get a Gk, a right back, two centre backs a midfielder and a striker! Signings that could be made for a gk include; brad Guzan from Aston villa, Scott loach (Watford) or alex smithies (Huddersfield). The likely rightback will be Matt Lowton (Sheffield united) and two centre backs Harry maguire (Sheffield united) and Jason Pearce (Portsmouth). Paul Coutts (Preston) ched Evans (Sheffield united) and Jordan Rhodes (Huddersfield) are also likely to join.(5)(37)There is no chance of Rhodes joining the carrot crunchers.. hes premiership boundI believe by the term carrot crunchers you are reffering to our six fingered cousins in Norfolk. But agree we will not sign next to none of those players. Thanks agian Keane for knowing best that Rhodes was never going to be any good and selling him you sure proved us town fans wrong.The only ones i can see coming to Ipswich are Alex Smithies, and Matt Lowton, Jordon Rhodes loved his time at Ipswich who developed his skills and brought him on, but thanks to that tosser Keane he was sold for a mere 400'000Another dreamer..The blades are on there way back up, a much bigger club than ipswich, why would they sell 3 of there better young players!!.
Why do people write CRAP..dreamer Ipswich fans mate. From what I hear they are 66 million in debt so won't be doing too much splashing out. Unlike the yellow army who are quite minted at the moment with premiership status ha


30 Mar 2012 08:30:04
In a bid to save face the Crawley board are about to sack Dteve Evans and his henchmen.They are aware for a while that the club image haas been tarnished.Also the FA will fine the club heavily and possible points deductions. As for Steve Evans they may view him as a person not fit to be a Manager, feel his past is about to catch up with him.
As usual it's the fans who suffer(23)(4)Whos Dteve Evans?Utter garbage. Steven Evans is why Crawley are where they are - he's the reason they are about to be promoted to L1. As for a points deduction, why? it all happened after the final whistle and was down to individual players. Get a life, Crawley are going up, live with it.Tehy wont go up and here could well be a points deduction and if i remember before mr moneybags became he new owner crawley we mid table. just saying. The pub team will be them tomorrow anyway
As for evens i wouldnt be suprised if the board see sence and get in a decent managerI hope the rumour is true as Steve Evans is a disgrace to football even Crawley fans now on their own forum have heard his total abuse of opposing players from the sidelines and Evans is a total disgrace to football.
I have been behind the dug out in one game where there full back was getting constantly beaten by a winger and Evans was shouting to his full back to break the other players legs.

Evans needs to be brought before the FA and sorted once and for all and harshly.

I do believe Evans will be sacked whatever at the end of the season and the FA can speak to any fan from 23 other clubs in L2 and they will all say the same as me about his antics on the touchline.Crawley are a very decent side and saw them at the Kassam stadium and by far the best team Ive seen in the league. But....Evans, nop, hated by most though that likely wont matter to him. But he will drag Crawley down if they are not careful and will spoil the good workCrawley is a club that are run awfully and thier fans just have o accept that they will go the same way as rusten did a few years ago. when the time is rignt and they have sold one or two more for alot of money they will take that then go there is already people saying that they are taking money out of the club.
Cant agree about them having the best squad that is swindon
