barcelona are going to offer sergio busquets + 10 million for arsenals alex song

Doubt but for Barca's sake would be good

Busquets is ten times better than song

No their not.

Why would Barca swap Busquets for a Song and then chuck 10 million in? Busquets is better than Song alone

Really is he better then song
1.He provides tonnes of assists
2.provides good cover
3.doesn't dive and cheat all the time
4.Reported that arsenal are reluctant to sell him unless its around the 20+million mark

Song is useless, this roumour in the papers is laughable

Lol, what a joke

By your logic Busquets would be worth 10 million, well why hasn't anyone snapped him up before then?

Biscuits ! has adapted to the Barcelona playing style and is key to there team, he won't be going anywhere till his late 20's early 30's

Funniest thing I've read in an age

Busquets is much better than Song

: Buzsaky, Gerrard and Baldock all set to sign for Bristol City tomorrow (Friday). Three very good signings in my opinion. Plus Wilson to sign short term deal (initially 3 months to cover injuries))

Gerard and Wilson in and j Wilson will be going to get regular first team football

Baldock signing in the next week or so..... Same as buzaky, Wilson and gerrard. Davis staying at the club as derby couldn't agree a fee for last seasons club top scorer. Also some speculations about weather pitman will leave... I don't really think he is moving after the time to move to burnley has passed. Adomah staying at the club as is everybody else

As much as i'd love for cardiff to off-load A.Gerrard to you lot as he's a uselees lump! It aint gonna happen as Bristol city have offerd 200k for his services and thats a fair offer as he aint worth no more than that! But malky wants more for him, so unless you can up your offer there aint gonna be no signing!

PLEASE offer more and take the buffoon who cost us the carling cup!



02 Aug 2012 21:52:02
Jordan Obita to go on loan to Shrewsbury for an initial 6 months.



02 Aug 2012 21:30:45
BREAKING: Burnley have agreed a fee with Doncaster for their star midfielder Brian Stock. Stock is believed to travel to Burnley to have a medical within the next 48 hours.

Doncaster Fan ! {Ed013's Note - No need to leave a source, its a rumours site}

Will never pass the medical. Stock is a permanent 'sick note'

Star Midfielder?? which Brian Stock have you been watching?

He won't be travelling to Burnley because we are on tour in the South West.

He might pass the medical, but his back will play up from the lightest of touches. Excellent player but should retire

Stock told me himself it will be sorted this week either way. Lets hope he does leave. Wont get a starting place this year. Great player but lacks strengh. Cheers Brian.

Reported in the Burnley Express, he is about to sign when agreement is reached 03/08/2012

with the completion of a deal for helgerson cardiff are now turning there attention to qpr pair tommy smith and jamie mackie. Cardiff are also targeting craig bellamy also a qpr target.
All what cardiff need now is more squad depth a new left back as cover for taylor and new centre back to cover for the inevitable departure of gerrard and keenan. A new young winger would also be good.

Jamie Mackie is NOT leaving, Fernandes even said so himself!

Cardiff have calmed down talks with bellamy after signing heidar

Just like Helguson wasn't?

Cardiff wont sign another striker fact they will finish their business with a signing of a pacey winger and a centre back.

Earnshaw will leave hopefully so we do need another striker

Bellamy is a done deal. thats why miller was allowed to leave so soon

I would be worried if he only wanted a centre back and winger the squad needs cover for left back since naylor left.
We could use another striker to cover earnshaw since he will not get any gametime. We need far more depth if we want to mount a challange throughout the season for promotion

Cover for LB is inevitable, that must be up there on malky's wish list, yeah its nice to see some more new faces within the squad but lets hope these new faces can shine!
Defo need CB cover for hudson and turner we have blake but he's only one man! and gezza just dont cut it for me thanks. I dont even want to mention Keinan as hes just a waste of wages.
A definate winger is needed and i think Beller's would fit that bill perfectly, so allthough malky has done good durring this window so far he still needs more Face's (Quality signings) to compete for automatic promotion!

You have no chance with Mackie, not leaving, fact!

Mackie just signed a new deal and turned down the advances of Everton saying he wanted to remain at QPR. Think there may be some truth in Smith and a possible loan for Bothroyd. Mackie will stay unless a big offer was made by a premier league club ask yourself why a guy who worked so hard to get to the premier league gaining plaudits for his performances in the latter part of the season would even consider such a move

True but Mackie is not Helguson, Hughes uses Mackie the main reason for Helguson leaving qpr is because he didnt play much under Hughes and thought we (Cardiff City) is a perfect club for Helguson, im a Cardiff City fan :P and i cant see this deal happening

Helguson was surplus to requirements at Rangers, is way past his best in terms of his age and has a horrendous injury record. He was/is still a decent player but not good enough to make an impact of the 25 man squad of a premier league team this season. Getting money from Cardiff was excellent business. Jamie Mackie is a quality player, quick, young and recently signed a new improved deal at Rangers. He IS part of the managers plans and easily makes the 25 man squad. Why oh why would he go to any championship team when he will be a hit again in the premier league.



02 Aug 2012 21:25:58
Swindon set to make a triple swoop this week with Scottish striker Craig Beattie looking set to sign a 2yr deal. Dundee's Ryan Conroy is also in talks with Swindon after the club agreed a £200,000 deal. The third player set to sign is Ashley Westwood from Crewe after a £400,000 deal was struck just a couple of hours ago.

Couldnt see swindon paying 400,000 for westwood tbh

Isnt craig beattie going to rangers

Westwood is Portsmouth's new assistant manager... {Ed001's Note - different one, Crewe have produced another Ashley Westwood, bit like Billy Jones, they kept producing one after another for a while. Their academy must be due another Billy any time now!}

Craig Beattie has already signed for Rangers so you my friend are talking BULLpoop!

Beattie hasn't signed for that team which used to be called rangers, he's stalling on the deal.

Alan Macloughlin waiting in the wings to take over from Appleton as he is finding it very frustrating... would be good for pompey as he would bring in his old friend Colin Calderwood.....



02 Aug 2012 21:24:51
Millwall will look to bring in two more signings, From what i've been told, Anthony Wordsworth, will sign from colchester for undisclosed fee, tommy smith will also sign from qpr on loan, with a view to a permenant deal, all this has come from a friend who works at the south london press.

Also heard this, great if true.

Oh dear, according to an earlier post he has signed for Charlton!! I think you'll find he ain't going anywhere!!

Not leaving Colchester

Chalrton's interest has cooled since the signing of Kerkar, that will leave the field clear. Good player, hope Millwall sign him!

Tommy Smith would be a good signing.

We had better do something soon OR it WILL be TOO LATE!

He is good with the ball a sweet left foot but is very lazy !

Millwall cannot afford Wordsworth, Colchester turned down 750k from Bournemouth. Any fee around or above the 1m mark would get you him and I don't see you paying that

I know that chris taylor scored twice for US today for the WALL ! BUT WE STILL NEED ANOTHER STRIKER KJ!



02 Aug 2012 21:21:35
Blackburn Rovers two new strikers will be Simon Cox and Roque Santa Cruz.

Simon Cox will move for 2m with lack of game time.

Santa Cruz will join for 3m after being tired of shipped out on loan and wants to join the club he has been successful at.

Doubt Blackburn will sign Santa Cruz, why would he drop to the championship when teams in Spain are interested !

Cruz couldnt wait to get away from blackburn so he aint going back

Doubt it they turned down the chance to sign cox, Santa cruz lives Blackburn but it would only be a loan. Rhodes is the top transfer target.

Why would cruz Rhodes or even cox go to Blackburn there not a big club.

Cox is crap Rhodes is unproven and RSC is washed up, realistic targets



02 Aug 2012 21:20:59
Ivan Ramis is a Wigan athletic player.

Wigan fan here good signing by martinez we just need another striker for cover & a decent goalkeeper for cover



02 Aug 2012 21:12:04
Barcelona to sign Toulalan and Agger by the end of the week



02 Aug 2012 20:48:32
stevenage have rejected a bid from a mystery club for luke freeman.

Yes Stevenage rejected a bid from Preston for Luke Freeman and Preston are increasing their bid.

Gonna have to be a massive bid

^^ Luke Freeman is not leaving stevenage, he hasn't even been there a year yet.

The mystery club is Preston North End. Im a preston fan and never heard of this guy, can anyone tell me if hes decent?

Really PNE can do much better than signing Stevenage Borough players. Should be signing Championship quality players

Then why have you signed 4 or 5 already m8

Championship quality? Westleys signed about 12 league 1 and 2 players lol

Luke Freeman doesn't play for Stevenage borough he plays for Stevenage fc



02 Aug 2012 20:53:38
Watford seem to be the club that have had a bid turned down by Peterborough for Paul Taylor. A friend of mine who is close to the backroom staff at WFC says that WFC were impressed by Taylor when we played the Posh last game of the season/

But we didn't play posh last game of season

Word from insider is that it was brighton who had bid rejected

We played middlesbrough on the last day of the season...
Wfc Murray

Two members of WFCs backroom staff remain from last season. It is unlikely that the GK coach and the Physio have too much say in transfer dealings!

It was our last away game brains

Peterborough was our last away game of the season, Taylor scored the equaliser with that bullet of a shot

Good point well made, which of the "staff" is he close to seeing there nearly all new?



02 Aug 2012 20:52:45
Chesterfield have offered trials to Tom Newey, Craig Fagan and Pablo Mills who were released by Rotherham, Bradford and Crawley respectively.

I see Chesterfield are looking at mid table then if there signing these players.

Fagan would be a good signing. can play out-wide or c/f. Also can score.
Newey is left back or c/h which we don't need. Mills good central midfielder & takes no 'prisoners' - just what we need.

I know everyone hates fagan but is wasnt played in correct position a bradford decent striker

I really hope you sign newey dopey defender who hates being up against pace

None of these players have ever been near the B2 net unless they went shopping in the tesco {Ed044's Note - pretty sure fagan shops at sainsburys mate!

Can you name me a defender who likes playing against pace?

Newey never been a footballer. End of!

He has been and still is a your wrong there mate!

^^^^^^ infact he's unemployed so you're wrong there mate and he's most useless full back Rotherhams ever had

Newey is in my top three players in terms of being garbage



02 Aug 2012 20:46:59
george boyd at bramall lane, if deal agreed, the posh man will under go a medical with the yorkshire club tomorro {Ed013's Note - Can Sheff Utd really afford him and lets be honest he rejected a contract offer to stay with a Championship club. I believe a top half Championship club is looking at him}

Apparantly ed Leeds want to sign Boyd and mackail-smith playing together {Ed013's Note - I heard Leeds and Burnley interested in Boyd. Leeds and Norwich interested in Mackail-Smith}

I think you'll find boyd and cms going to leeds



02 Aug 2012 20:45:41
Neymar of santos will sign for Manchester city for a deal arround 60 million after the olympics c'mon city let's thrash those united wannabes

United wannabe's? Lol says Man City, the ones who bought themselves in to the big dogs

Man utd spend a fortune as well am not either city or united but if thats what your saying about city you have to say that about most teams cause any team that wins the prem will spend a few bob



02 Aug 2012 20:44:23
sunderland had have a bid accepted for peterborough ront man paul taylor.

Not true, Paul Taylor's set off to Fulham if Huddersfield reject a bid from then, which will be very likely



02 Aug 2012 20:43:42
stoke have bid 1.2 mill for taylor

Which taylor...

Bury to sign a young striker on loan from Huddersfield to replace shaun harrard who has gone out on loan to cheltenem town

Jimmy Spencer who was on loan at Cheltenham last season and Harrod signing for Cheltenham on season long loan.

James spencer



02 Aug 2012 20:21:24
Tunisian defensive midfielder Ahmed Guilouzi, 22, of NK Zagreb is against a move to England and is likely to rejoin HNK Gorica on loan for a second spell. Plymouth Argyle were believed to be one of a number of clubs interested including Portsmouth and Southend.

This isn't true was at HP yesterday, seen as a direct replacement for simon walton.

He can't be as bad as walts

Stoke City Transfer Targets

- Micheal Kightly - Wolves - Full Transfer - (90 %)

- Alan Hutton - Aston Villa - Full Transfer - (90 %)

- Martin Olsson - Blackburn Rovers - Full Transfer - (40 %)

- Stephen N'Zonzi - Blackburn Rovers - Full Transfer - (10 %)

- Romelu Lukaku - Chelsea - Loan - (25 %)

- Moussa Konate - Maccabi Tel Aviv - Full Transfer - (10 %)


- Kenwyne Jones - West Ham - Full Transfer -
(80 %)

- Cameron Jerome - England - Full Transfer - (10 %)

- Jonathon Walters - Celtic - Full Transfer - (5 %)

- Ryan Shotton - Nottingham Forest - Full Transfer - (20 %)

- Danny Higginbotham - Wolves - Exchange for Martin Kightly - (90 %)

Wow you know so much.... Thought stoke made a bid for MICHAEL kightly, can you shed any light on this martin kightly fella? where does he play? any good?......

Kightly is agreeing a new contract which is a extra year and a other one if he stays injury free

For one it's Michael Kightly, not Martin. And do you think Wolves would take Higginbottom and let Kightly go when they have just put Adam Hammill up for sale. Living in a dream world

Didn't know that the England National Squad bought players?
And it appears that Kightly has had a name change from when you started typing to when you finished.
Love the random percentages also!

Are you serious Cameron jerome has to play for a club he can play for engerland aswell he would be a good signing for the mighty bluebirds mind

Cameron Jerome to England? Really? Too good to play for a club apparently .....

Any team that wants to sign hutton i fear the worst for

Ryan Shotton - Nottingham Forest? Why do our fans (forest) know nothing about this?

Konate is going to Upton Park.
WHU have bid 1.5 million.

What do you mean you nottingham forest fans dont know anything about ryan shotton coming to you ive heard it on the news and my uncle is a forest fan and he heard it before aswell
P.S when i said jerome is going to england i meant english clubs and im sorry about the mistake about MICHEAL Kightly not martin

Complete nonsense100%

Ryan Shotton - He's just bought a house near to us and is spending a lot of money on it. I doubt he'll be moving any time soon!

How did Strachan fail? he took us to victories over Manchester Utd and he masterminded a 3-0 win against Benfica who knocked Man U out of the CL last year. Also he signed the best technical player Celtic have had in the last 7 years (Shunsuke Nakamura).

Shotton is not good enough.. average at best

Who's martin kightly??

Who's martin kightly??



02 Aug 2012 20:21:20
Jake cassidy just signed for tranmere on loan so end the rumour!



02 Aug 2012 20:19:50
Danny Gabbidon to follow Heider Helguson to Cardiff City after being released from Q.P.R

Like hell it doesn't say that we was linked with him at the start of the window but would be ok signing

Na Gabbs has lost it now in my opinion hes always injury prone a centre half on injury prone i something we dont need

HH is a great signing for Cardiff, but Gabbidon? No way not now..

Gabidon has his best days in football behind him now. he should consider retirement or drop down the league's a tier or two



02 Aug 2012 20:13:39
Forest are lining up a 1 million pound bid for Doncaster winger' Kyle Bennett

Worth more

He's yours!! He is an unproven player still, so you are paying 1,000,000 for potential. I belive it would be nearer to 400,000 or 500,000, Donny would still sell him at that

Bennett to sign a new contract with DRFC today



02 Aug 2012 20:03:02
Blackpool are close to signing Dexter Blackstock

Yes please, just what we need up front Seasider91

This would be a great signing but i think hes too important at forest

I'd rather have Beckford although I doubt that either of these rumours are true.



02 Aug 2012 19:53:33
Helgerson to Cardiff done deal....stokebluebird

Gabbidon has never played for Watford so not going to happen. Malky your scouting network is embarrassing.....

Hes 34 but a very good striker and a cracking addition good one malcky strong and holds up the ball well.



02 Aug 2012 19:50:42
Andrew Crofts back at Brighton from Norwich on a three year deal so no longer seeking a midfielder

Yes ... now for a striker



02 Aug 2012 19:46:14
Derby County are in talks with
Shrewsbury town for 2 of their
players.With 2 of derbys young
players going out on loan.

There will be NO outs from the meadow as Turner is happy with the players he has

When a manager says that they mean no-one will be transfer listed or sent out on loan.Say for example we offered
500k for Jon Taylor + Kane Richards on loan.You have a Replacement for the season and 500k to bring in experience to secure your place in the League 1.
Its not one of your First teamers by the way its 2 young players.

Jon Taylor
Connor Goldson
Ryan woods

2 of these 3

We do not have any players of Championship standard so this is nonsense, but we would love Ben Davies back.

Grandison and Richards both Championship standard in my opinion.

You speak for yourself. Davies back, no thank you. he'll only be off again when his contract runs out, just like he's done at every other club he's been at. Auctions himself off to the highest bidder!



02 Aug 2012 19:20:52
Mcinnes has dismissed the Steven Davies rumours out of hand and declared that bcfc are not interested.
He does expect to make the double capture of Baldock and Gerrard tomorrow in time for the Rovers game.

He is still looking at two other unnamed players, in defence and attack as these are the areas he feels need strengthening further still.

Believe it when i see it

Can't believe Bristol would want Gerard lg one ate best



02 Aug 2012 18:54:34
Liam Bridcutt to sign for Norwich City

No poyet will never let him go now the team is coming together



02 Aug 2012 19:41:57
Derby County ins

Shane Ferguson
Jon Taylor

Thats it.

So we've just signed a cover for LB and we have loads of wingers, yet we sign more... NO

^No we havent signed cover for left back
We have 2 Left wingers who can swap sides.
we have 1 right winger in ben davies and thats it.
Paul coutts and will hughes can play right but their natural posistion is centre mid and in pre season thats where they played with trialist caton playing right when ben davies came off.

James o connor is a right back who can fill in at centre back and kind of do a job at left back if theres no one else.Hes cover for Shaun barker and Ob.

ROberts is injured.



02 Aug 2012 18:47:17
Plymouth argyle. What's going on with Griffiths why on earth has he not been signed up yet we struggle for goals all the time then we find a natural scorer and we don't do nothing?????????

Could not agree more.

They are in contract talks with griffiths and he needs to sort out getting out of hid job as a fireman, there is a article on it

I just want the club to go for Izale Mcleod, hes a proven goalscorer (at this level) we just need to steer off interest from higher clubs.

He's signed a 1 year deal

How do you we have signed griffiths on a 1 year deal



02 Aug 2012 18:54:09
Delroy Facey set to sign for Walsall after been reccomended to Dean Smith by Richard O'Kelly who was his previous manager at Hereford

There's a shock. More ex-Hereford players.



02 Aug 2012 19:03:09
Charlton Athletic are set to sign Simon Gillett on a free transfer after his contract expired at Doncaster.

He is on trial at Barnsley, saw him yesterday

Dont need anyone in that position, just signed a midfielder yesterday, please keep up with events.

A player who has believed all the hype about himself, he is not good enough for anything above Div 1

Signing for Forest.



02 Aug 2012 19:18:48
Jordan Rhodes to Celtic for £8.5m

Have heard from many around Celtic Park that they are going all out to sign Jordan Rhodes. Can imagine that this is true.

Lol, ya right Celtic won't pay that much for a player more so one from a lower league. If players from that league are leaving for that money then spl players should leave for same and more money. The kid had one good year in a low league can't see any team besides a epl club spend that money cause they like throwing it around on bad deals.

Celtic haven't got that sort of budget for one player, no way

More like 3.5m

Half the teams in the spl are playing the same quality of football as they do in league one anyway

Theres as much chance of micheal phelps not being able to swim than celtic spending 8.5 mill.ffs they wouldnt spend that on messi....utter crap...jimthetim,,,living in the real world....

That kid has had 3 good years at town, leading goalscorer in every season, no less that 20 goals each season,so not a 1 season wonder. CHECK YOUR FACTS

Boro are a classic example of how poor the spl is, signed both the best from Rangers and Celtic, nearly relegated. if Rhodes stays at huddersfield he will be playing at an equal if not higher level than celtic bar europe

Boro signed fringe players from the Old Firm, probably with the exception of Stephen Thomson who has mostly been injured. Barry Robson is nearing the end of his career but was player of the year there, McManus wasn't good enough for Celtic and McDonald scored goals but didn't have enough of an all round game. Plus Boro had two failed spl Managers in Strachan and Mobray. {Ed001's Note - how did Strachan fail? He reduced the wage bill massively, reduced the age of the squad and still kept the team competitive in the SPL and Europe. I would say that is far from failure.}

Boro only signed two players that actually got game time for celtic and rangers the rest were pit part players

Just cause you mix up some players from Rangers and Celtic doesnt mean you're gonna be successful! And they were not the best from Rangers and Celtic, Willo Flood and Stephen McManus? Fair enough Barry Robson, McDonald and Boyd all played first team football for them but if they were the best Celtic and Rangers players then where were Nakamura, McGregor, Boruc, Bougherra and Cuellar?

Celtic won't pay more than 5m for Rhodes, we're good at buying players for 500k-2m and releasing them for 4m+. He's got a great record and all but that's crazy money for a League 1 player...

Strachan a failure...??....3 titles and last 16 of CL twice... {Ed001's Note - he had a better record in the Champions League than O'Neill.}



02 Aug 2012 19:07:29
Zavon Hines is on Trial with Derby
County from Saturday after being
Rejected by Swindon Town

You can have him....SWINDON TOWN FC

If swindon rejected him why would derby want him

If swindon rejected him why would derby want him

He failed his fitness didnt he.I dont think
that judges his ability.Hes been given 4 weeks to work in our gym then to have a fitness test.

any new rumours about bristol city,



02 Aug 2012 18:23:56
Young trialist liam willis looks set to sign for oldham athletic after impressing paul dickov

Miguel does not score many goals and at Kilmarnock his manager described him as a link man - we already have Simpson for that job. We need a goalscorer.

Miguel looks class though, the score he made for simpson against man city was excellent

We where missing a link man last season who had quick feet and could split defences in two. This guy has made chances for furman and simpson so far this season. If chances are created other players will score. Its not necessary to have another goal scoring centre forward look at Barcelona

Well said!!!

Miguel was not on the bench for the huddersfield game looks unlikely he will be coming shame because Oldham didn't look as strong as they did when they played man city.



02 Aug 2012 18:18:41
David James to sign for Northampton town on a 3 month deal!!



02 Aug 2012 17:37:28
Sutton Coldfield born Striker Darius Vassell is in talks with league one side Walsall, Vassell was playing for Leicester last season until he got injured in October when he suffered a serious knee injury in a game against West Ham which ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

Source Leicester Mercury journalist

Hope this is true!!!!!

Never true in a million years !

This could happen, but would require Vassell taking a substantial cut in wages but i think he wants to stay in the area.

Izael mcleod wanted to come to the area n be close to his family. he went to portsmouth....?

Swansea City are the latest team being linked with Jack Butland

Wouldnt be suprised if this lad ended up at a Massive club,fantastic talent

He's good mates with Sinclair,Allen and Taylor of Swansea so he could be persuaded to go there after all Swansea are a club developing.

HJ revealed in today's S Wales Evening Post, that the club r trying 2 sign Proven PL Talent, so can't c it. But u never know these days



02 Aug 2012 17:03:36
Stevenage sign Lucas Akins fro Tranmere for an undisclosed fee. I have heard 75k quoted but not confirmed.

75k for him lmfao!

What a waste of money would not pay 75.00 for him

What's so bad about Akins? Thought he was a pretty decent wideman :L

liverpool are set to make a move for malaga midfielder isco



02 Aug 2012 16:56:04
ipswich interested in Ross Mccormack-ITFC Source

He's not going anywhere, stated his desire to stay at leeds, and ipswich?, have a word ,lol

Ipswich, please stop the jokes, the lad has ability and that means Ipswich are not anywhere near his radar.

Like ross is going to leave leeds for the tractor boys

Much as I agree that there isn't much chance of this happening, I seem to recall that he had originally agreed to sign for Ipswich but Roy Keane managed to P*ss him off and he signed for Leeds

Don't know why you mock Ipswich for the so called biggest club outside prem league you barely did better than us last season

Let's be honest your only a feeder club for teams down this part you have no ambition no takeover you all thought was going to happen and like I've said before the only thing you have done better then us in the last few years is play Sunday morning football looks to me everyone is leaving you ha ha



02 Aug 2012 16:53:33

Rhodes to fulham 7m + trotta on
Aubameyang to fulham 6m
Jarvis to fulham 6m + add ons
Arsharvin to fulham 2.3m
Benayoun to fulham loan deal.

Dempsey to liverpool 8.5m
Haliche to vv venlo 1m
Etuhu to wolves 2m
Duff to celtic 4m

Duff ...4m ??....kills the rumour thread in it's tracks..

Jarvis for 6 mill, no way at all. we dont need to sell him as the finances are stable, so if he was to go it would have to be for quite a bit more

Why would Jarvis go for more?, no disrespect to Jarvis, but he only worth that much

On FFC website they say Etuhu gone to Blackburn!!

Haha, way off...and only a day later.
Benayoun no go
Etuhu to Blackburn
No way Fulham spend 7m up front on Rhodes
Why would Trotta go on loan?
Jarvis is a little high, but reasonable
Arshavin, maybe a tad less
I like the idea of 8.5 for Dempsey, but wont happen.
Haliche = great!
Duff - are Celtic trying to Follow Rangers?

Jarvis is worth double that mate, we dont want to or need to sell him

wolves season ticket holder

Wolves arn't going to sell jarvis for that less, we don't need to sell him we can afford to keep him, so if they want him they will have to up the offer considerably

Huddersfield town to sign Sean Morrison, Anthony Gerard, lee Peltier and Ross McCormack with Antony Kay, jamie McCombe and anton Robinson being allowed to leave.

Mccormack staying at leeds , as HE said today, peltier going to leeds ,said he's not interested in hudds {Ed044's Note - huddersfield pulled out of deal

McCormack will sign a new 3 yr deal at Leeds at Huddersfield have pulled out from signing as Grayson doesn't want to stump up the 850,000

Best laugh i have had all year huddersfield can only afford free bee's ask simon grayson he's good at it i say you buy one you get one free you know the saying

I am a town fan and dont think we will get any of them. McCormack prob stay leeds, Peltier intrest has moved on as seen in Hudds Examiner last week. Morrison now part of Reading plans by the look of things and dont think Gerrard will happen. Maybe wrong. UTT. Bradley Terrier

6 weeks ago that may have resembled the Town shopping list but, my friend, you are 6 weeks off the pace and none of them are now targets. Go back to sleep!

Already backed out of peltier, dont think were in for gerrard, morrison will play at reading this year, i want the rest to leave!

Morrison won't go now, he's part of our plans. If I were you though I'd get a more experienced championship cb than him if you want to stay in the league

ED is a closet own fan lol x

Peltiers signedfor leeds mccotmack wants new contract at leeds

We have not had free bees this transfer window muppet why don't you do your homework first. Graysons days of being forced to sign free transfers ended when he left Leeds

Peltier has not sighned for leeda yet but he is going to

Peltier signed for leeds now,get in

Burnley will wrap up the signing of Marlon Pack for 400,000 today from Cheltenham ahead of the game with Cheltenham on Sat

I reckon howe will watch him against burnley before he makes his move.

Where the heck has this marlon pack rumour come from ??

No they won't. Pack is staying at Cheltenham.

Absolutely no chance.

In other news, Cheltenham Town centre back Steve Elliott will be competing alongside Usain Bolt in the 100m finals at the 2012 Olympics and Russell Penn is subject to a 5,000,000 bid from Chelsea.

No, chairman Paul Baker has said it will take far in excess of 400,000 (our record transfer fee received), dream on..

Burnley fan here, think Howe wants a little championship experience instead of youth, yes I'd like Pack, he's a talent however unproven at a higher level. In my opinion Brian Stock will sign for around 125k.

You can tell this rumour is rubbish just by the price mentioned, it would take much more than that figure for the best young midfielder in the lower leagues.

Who the hell is Marlon Pack? but its Cheltenham, so we will get him for 30k

Marlon Pack is the best young midfielder in the lower league, aged twenty was released by Pompey during their financial troubles signed for Cheltenham.

Marlon pack was in the league two team of the year last season so hes AMAZING!
he wont leave us tho.

"Who the hell is Marlon Pack"? typical ignorant higher league fan

Leeds United are on the hunt for a centre back and right back.
they were after Luke Chambers but he signed for Ipswich. Anyway Leeds are now being rumoured to sign Emerson Boyce that can play all across the defence.
The right back that Leeds are after is Lee Peltier but if that falls through Leeds have been looking at Sam Ricketts at Bolton

Ricketts just signed new Bolton deal so won't leave especially to a club in decline like Leeds who just sell there players to Norwich. {Ed013's Note - Hardly a club in decline, a club that makes profit year in year out now! Lets take this moment to feel sorry for the likes of Pompey fans who are in decline. Football has become a cruel, greedy sport and fingers crossed the fans, love or hate them, still have a club to support next season}

Absolute nonsense. Emmeson is a key player for us and will see out his career with us. Post something realistic next time.

What a load of rubbish Ricktts has just extended his stay at Bolton so we won't be going anywhere soon......

Ricketts wont leave Bolton, he's just signed for two more years.

Ricketts is going absolutley nowhere

Zzzzzzzzz, Paul Baker already said it will take far in excess of our record fee of 400,000 to let Pack go.

Blackburn are to bid 4.5 million for Rhodes with maybe goodwillie going the other way.

Stoke, Sunderland, Liverpool and qpr in battle for nzonzi for 8 million.

Dempsey set to hand in transfer request to push through a transfer to Liverpool.

Swansea will reject all offers for Allen unless 15 million release clause is met.

Aresenal have enquirer about brazillian youngster gains and may fund deal by selling song to Barcelona {Ed044's Note - Jordan rhodes wouldnt sign for another championship club and think it would take a bigger bid than that for hoyle to sell

Rhodes will not go to blackburn and song isnt good enough for barcelona

Well said ed. ;-)

Hudds don't need the money and Rhodes has said he wants to stay.

Can't see this he just got a new deal and the feeling is this is his last chance to break into the first team squad.

N'Zonzi has gone to Sevilla on loan until Jan

Never go to a small club like blackburn

Small club? We may have been relegated but look at our past we are hardly small..

Rhodes will cost about 7-8 million not 4.5

Arsenal are working on deals to sign Santi Cazorla from Malaga permanently and fellow midfielder Nuri Sahin on loan from Real Madrid.

Although the above is well known news now, it does signify a massive signal of intent from Arsenal - which has been lacking over the last couple of years.

Observing the latest Arsenal training session, there is a new found sense of confidence and excitement, which even has buoyed Van Persie - who appears to have upped his training performance, rather than just going through the motions as he has done in recent weeks.

I will stick my neck out now and say Van Persie to stay until the end of the season at the VERY LEAST - but I will be putting a bet on for him to sign a new contract before the end of the transfer window.

And I have no preferences where he ends up - unless it's at Newcastle of course! That would be my preferred destination for him!


Rvp to sign for city next week

Peterborough have turned down a bid from Derby County for striker Paul Taylor.
The bid was believed to be in the region of £750,000 but Peterborough have said the offer was 'nowhere near their valuation'.

Is this based on their fans thread because if it is its wrong, they were just speculating, Derby wont pay the fee Posh want OR the wages Taylor wants

Was premier league

Very much doubt it. Hope its true.

Things are starting to happen on the transfer front for Sunderland. Fletcher is due a medical at Sunderland on Monday after reports of a 12mil bid has been accepted. Also Olsson is due next week for a medical after a 5mil bid has been accepted. Nzonzi has been offered a contract with Sunderland after a 6mil bid has been accepted and now is upto the player where he wants to go. Guidetti has agreed to a move to Sunderland on loan with an option to buy included. He is due next week for a medical also. Lastly Sunderland are yet to Hear back from there other bids which are 7mil for Sinclair and 9mil for Mcgeady. Before the start of the season Sunderland will have there new signings in place


Sunderland don't have 50 m as ur closing there going spend if they sign these players oniel has been told to sell before he signs

Hope your right mate, am i the only sunderland fan who thinks mcgeady is epic! everyone was critising him when hes class and skillfull a game winner and thats what we need!

N'Zonzi has joined Sevilla on loan until end of the Season with Blackburn having an option to recall him in Jan if they receive a good offer

Nzonzi hasn't signed on loan for Sevilla

I think you will find nzonzi hasn't gone on loan and people forget Sunderland sold bent for 24mil Henderson for 20mil then spent 30mil. That's 14mil profit plus the gyan for 12 so that's 26mil profit not mentioning all the freed up wages after letting 14 players go. So if Sunderland spent 40mil they would probs be only spending 15-20 mil and that's not a lot really considering all these players would improve there squad.

I am a celtic fan and sunderland fan. Aiden McGeady is absolute beast and is sure a brilliant signing. I would love to see him at sunderland linking up with the man who gave him his full celtic debut

He will be in hull's 1st team next season sorry

He will not be in the 1st team. It will be nick and fryatt up front. Simpson will be on the bench or loaned out.

I reckon bruce will play him above fryatt come mid season! A lot of potential, no chance of him being loaned out

I cant see him being in the plans for next season, I think a loan out for him and mclean going on a permanant should open up a spot for Helenius!

Should be given a chance, not snt out on loan again

Loaned or sold, coventry can have him, ill pay for the cab fair myself

Will Bruce be at the KC mid season not unless his 3Mill striker finds out where the goal is

Who does he play for (or last club) and what posision does he play?

He is a defender and has played in the premier league with reading and also played for leeds and charlton amongst others, he was most recently at notts county, think he would be a great signing for us although he is getting on a bit now so don't think he'd have more than 2 good seasons left in him!

Swindon have got former West Ham and Burnley winger/striker Zavon Hines and former Preston goalkeeper Iain Turner on trial. Source- Swindon advertiser

Hines has had a two day trial and has been told he is not fit enough (Swindon website confirmed this) and is not up to the level of the other players and so he has now gone.

Hines went now

Zavon hines has been released from his trial swindon boss says hes not fit enough and turner has been given a bit more time to prove his worth

Zavon Hines was let go 2 days into his 7 day trial as he isn't up to the fitness standard of the rest of the squad.

Turner is good


Letting a good player go because hes not fit enough is a bit silly isnt it ? obviously sometimes players arent upto scratch so you work on their fitness levels and build them up dont you ?

Thought di canio was a decent footballer surely he must realise turner is crap , thankfully north end did before it was too late

hi any southampton rumours gone worryingly quiet

We've got a new website. Source: official website

Worryingly, just heard that Adkins will be out the door soon and that NC already has someone lined up.....

They've been keeping it under wraps a lot recently so we'll probably see a burst come through at once again. I'd expect due to what Adkins has said some will come in over the week end.

Dont forget you are only allowed a squad of 25 how many signings do you want.

Nothing worrying about it! This is how Cortese likes to operate, they will be working very hard behind the scenes and there will be good signings.


It is alarmingly quiet, any new players that come in now will not have time to gell. Our defence is alramingly weak, Clyne, Fox and Davis are good enough but our CB's will get torn apart. Relegation is, i'm afraid to say, on the cards.

Adkins is going nowhere who are you kidding, he's one of the most successful managers in the history of the club, 2 seasons as manager and 2 promotions and looks like he's doing a great job setting up the team. Also if Cortese didn't have faith in Adkins he'd have gone pre-transfer market so the new manager could set the squad up.

Nigel adkins is going nowhere,dont be daft!!

There is no way Cortese could remove Adkins pre season on the basis of the two promotions as people have said.. That being said - there will not be a manager under more pressure than NA and we have put the start of the season at risk having still not completed transfer business in key positions. Cortese is unlikely to be patient and sets high (probably too high) targets - we have a tough start and if we start poorly I would expect Cortese to act by mid Sept. I hope we start well and NA keeps his post.

"Dont forget you are only allowed a squad of 25 how many signings do you want.".....We have signed 4 players! With a couple more due..What the hell are you on about? We are hardly being greedy are we!........"It is alarmingly quiet, any new players that come in now will not have time to gell. Our defence is alramingly weak, Clyne, Fox and Davis are good enough but our CB's will get torn apart. Relegation is, i'm afraid to say, on the cards."......Simply put you are just being daft! Proper Saints fans know when it goes quiet it means something is happening.


Agreed LLS83, I have all faith in what adkins is doing and what is going on behind the scenes! The way be played agaisnt ajax has given me even confidence! COYR

News out of Edgeley Park.

Stockport County want to take barnsley keeper Lukas Lidakevicius on SLL and Brandon Windsor has returned from Accrington Stanley to try and earn a contract.

From a Barnsley fan - looks to be a good prospect, only about 19 but he's built like an old-fashioned keeper and should have a good career ahead of him. Needs to get some games though as Barnsley didn't seem to have confidence in him when there were injuries to goalkeepers last season - brought 'keepers in on loan instead.

Billy paynter to sign for Doncaster this week

Worst thing Paynter did was leave Swindon i could have told him he hwas not a championship player. He is a good L1 player but that is his level. He went to Leeds for the money but it was never going to work and now he is back where he belongs at L1.
Before he came to Swindon he coudlnt hit a barn door he had one good season with us and thought he was the Dogs B***OCKS and wowuldnt sign a new contract with us. As they say what goes around comes around.

Brighton looking to sign Ross McCormack and Carlton Cole before the season commences. Once completed they will offload Craig Mackail Smith to Leeds

Mccormack just signed new leeds deal

McCormack says he wants to stay with Leeds as his wife and child are settled there. Zamora is too expensive for Brighton plus his wage demands would be too high

That would be good

Mccormack waiting on new deal at leeds, desperately wants to stay, and he will be joined by cms

Poyet on the club fans' forum made it clear he is looking for a target man to help CMS score 20 goals a season and not looking to move him on so Palace wind-ups can end now

Not McCormack but Becchio much more the type oof player Poyet would be looking to sign. Cole is a potential target for the same reason

No he hasn't so get your facts right mate he is on the verge of joining Brighton

These rumours about CMS of Brighton going to Leeds is utter rubbish. Just confirmed by gus poyet at fans forum that he is looking to sign a striker to play along side him and that Brighton don't want and don't need to sell him. Brighton have just resigned andy croft from Norwich.

Leeds will announce 2 new signings 1 on saturday and 1 on monday so lets wait n see if cms is one of them leeds r a team on the up lets just make that clear folks

Wouldn't mind cole coming to the seagulls

Like i said 1 signing on saturday hmmmmmm

Having failed on Andy Carroll (who now

instead of Adebayor), West Ham are
now (Wait for it) chasing Carlos Tevez
Haaaaa Heeeee who is apparently
available for £25m ha he ha he.
Moussa Konate by the way wants to
be loved by West Ham he ha and
Yannick Sagbo wants to join West Ham
but his heart is with Marseille! Once
West Ham fail with Tevez bid they
are believed to be interested in Lionel
Messi who is availabe for £250m, small change

Ha he ha he - never going to happen!

For a club 100m in debt, how the hell are they going to find the money to pay for him?

Iim a West Ham fan and im sick of all these poxy rumours. Just a way of selling season tickets and a smokescreen for s**t signings. We will probably end up with the likes of Upson and Heskey

City hace offered pitman to derby and have had a 700k bid accepted

source- bcfc

Yeah, if they're willing to pay the 1 million we want.

Sick of this Davies talk not even worth 1 mill

I am getting frustrated with this whole Davies thing, if we get him, we get him, if we don't, who cares? There are plenty of better, less injury prone, younger players out there who are worth a million, which Davies, by the way, is not worth.

We didnt turn him down he just isnt a higher standard he failed himself

Craig Mackail-Smith to Leeds Rumour is gathering pace down here, hasn't quite fitted in to the way Brighton play.
Have no doubt Gus will want someone else in first,......Beckford, Mccormack, Zamora???

Think mccormack is staying at leeds, hes wanting further talks regarding a new contract plus nw wants to keep him

Are u having a laugh Beckford and Zamora are not going to Brighton because of there wages and mcmormack said he would like to stay at Leeds .

CMS to Leeds - Good Luck with that one, he was well talked up by Barry Fry when Norwich enquired about him, and Norwich didn't fall for it, he was overpriced and overrated, he works hard but watch his lack of first touch, great at Div 1 level , but the jurys still out about his ability at Championship level.

Agree with the above. Striker signing next week and perhaps loan striker also due to Hoskins injury. It is thought a certain Portsmouth striker with red hair has been discussing a short term contract - he is not the "gem" signing which will also be an ex Brighton player like Crofts who will sign today. Source: Club

No you have Crofts in from Norwich, C M S going to Norwich

Cannot believe Norwich would go in for CMS as the last reply suggests, he could not cut it at Brighton in championship so why would Houghton believe he could cut it at premiership level.
Crofts played very well for Norwich at Championship level but unfortunately he was found out a bit at premiership level last season and struggled to stay in the 1st team plans, so it woul,d be noi surprise if he is sold on to a championship club.

Zamora back to Brighton?

As much as I'd love Zamora to come back I really can't see it at the moment. Not because of wages or expense, but because with Hodgson in charge of the National side, Zamora has the best chance he's ever had of playing regulalry for England. That will vanish if he comes to the Albion, and as much as he loves the club he's not going to jeopardise that.

Scunthorpe United want to take Charlton Athletics Paul Hayes in, on a season long loan.

Sorry hes going to colchester as part of the wordsworth deal

Charlton won't loan him , they are looking to sell due to his age

I'm not sure Charlton will do that (loan) at this stage. We are looking to sell which is unfortunate as I feel he was a good player for us.

I agree, Hayes was doing well for us before we put Kermorgant in his place!

any brentford news pls

Aziz Deen-Conteh is joining Brentford on a season long loan, this comes after Moyes informed Rosler that he is not willing to loan out Bidwell at this present time.

Don't wont Alexander back at Brentford there's much better striker's out there who are up for sale, Jonathon Forte or Paul Hayes would be good and they are both up for sale but will cost a lot to get, but we need one more striker. Come you Bees.

Yes uou r right onley thing missing goalscorer

leeds united are closing in on the signing of brighton striker craig mackail smith

Leeds may be 'closing in on a signing' but it certainly aint Craig!

Highly doubt it as the fee would have to be around 4-5 million to buy him out of his contract and also he is a fans favourite

Brighton are looking to sign a striker to play with cms so why would they sell him

How when he won't be able to complete a medical because he's injured and he's only just bought a house in Sussex because my mate is busy thinking of ways to spend the commission. This rumour is unfounded!

Oh dear brighton fans, its is cms leeds are closing in on,probably sign by saturday

I would much prefer ebanks blake or morrison from norwich

4-5 mil? Haha someone is living in cuckoo land :P maybe 1.5 at a stretch!



02 Aug 2012 10:17:05
Barnsley club legend Brian Howard, is set to make a sensational return to Oakwell following his release from Reading.

You never know!! he does have other offers in the pipeline including one from abroad but wishes to stay in the championship or higher.

You'll regret it he's terrible.

02 Aug 2012 16:13:04
Brian Howard says he's prepared to wait a few more days for Pompey.

He's on trial at Pompey and says he wants to sign after we get it sorted.

Higher than Barnsley? must be going to the SPL then

Or higher? BH is league1 at best. Past it!!


He's about Barnsleys level anyway which is league one {Ed013's Note - Harsh}

Ed. is one of the trailists at oakwell this week brian howard? {Ed044's Note - last i heard trialling with pompey}

Brian howard legend ? dont think so he was just ok better than the other players we had at the time [except steve mcphale]

Was awful for Sufc id steer well clear

Hope he doesn't sign, over rated and always was. What league are SUFC in again? - Tyke Forever!

He's about Barnsley level anyway, which is League 1.



02 Aug 2012 10:13:15
Harry Kewell was at Galpharm Yesterday according to reports!

Bulls***, was probably playing golf at driving range

He just doesn't fit the player profile, nearing the end of his career, would want high wages and a big risk on fitness and ability. Maybe he just called to have a cup of tea with Larry? This rumour is a false alarm.

Don't need wingers got 3 quality already AND arfield can stand in there if needs be.


Dont you mean he was at the john smith's stadium!




02 Aug 2012 09:40:38
Bolton are closing in on deals to sign colombian midfielder Carlos Sanchez on a three year deal. He held talks with the club yesterday and is understood to be having medical today. This despite late interest from west ham. Also Bolton have taken Benik adobe on loan from arsenal. The length of the loan is not yet determined. Arsenal have also offered ryo miyachi who is keen on a return to the reebok. However due to the return of chung yong Lee, it is not thought to be pushed through.

Would be a massive coup for Bolton to get Sanchez. We need that non nonsense player in the middle who is not frightened to put his foot in.

Alan GOw has demanded Exeter grant his dream move to Rangers as Ally McCoist attempts to quickly splash £100k before the embargo takes effect.

Itis expected Gow will sign a 3 year deal.

The same gow that was there first time round but couldnt get a game

If I were the Exeter chairman I would bite their hand off (proved the payment is in cash). Gow was a donkey at Plymouth and from what I've heard and seen he hasnt improved a great deal.

You clearly know nothing if you think gow hasnt improved, he's the best player in league 2..



02 Aug 2012 08:48:45
It looks like West Ham are finally taking
a leaf out of the books of other teams
and making offers for players other
teams are interested in. For Far
Too long have the hammers had deals
fall by the wayside at the last minute
and it appears they are looking at the
following players:

Carlos Sanchez: THE ROCK for a very
good reason. Defensive Midfielder
who is available on a free
Adrien Silva: Box to Box Midfielder who
has a good engine and is very highly
rated in Portugal. WHU have bid £1m
Chris Solly: West Ham currently in talks
with Charlton with a view to Swap/Cash
deal including Sam Baldock
Moussa Konate: Top Scorer at Olympics
but big and powerful and an eye for goal.
Sam Allardyce was seen at the UAE v Sennegal
game last night and is very interested.
Yannick Sagbo: Wants a move to the
premier league has expressed a wish to
join West Ham. Another Big Powerful

Maybe in part or all of the above will
join West Ham but the next 2 weeks
promises to be very interesting if your
a Hammers fan. Watch this spaceCOYI..........................P9389

Charlton wont give away Solly for Baldock, he is our best player

Chris Solly is staying at Charlton....

No way , jenkinson to arsenal was way under value for a million but this is a joke id only let solly go for more than 4 mil and thats no over valuation.

Solly isnt going anywhere, he loves charlton

Chris Solly does not want to leave Charlton and the club do not want or need to sell him. In the unlikely event it was to happen, there would need to be a lot of cash going Charltons way. 18k a week, no way would charlton consider paying anything like that in wages - 6k tops.

Baldock must be worth more than Solly,for a start forwards are hard to get and plenty of fullbacks kicking about,and Solly is to lightweight

Don't know where to start on that comment, one: it's the other way around, strikers who can kick a ball into a net can be found anywhere, finding one who does it regularly is a different question, two: finding a full back who is quick, strong, tactically aware, three: I was at yesterday's pre season friendly against Crawley and I saw solly push akinde on his bum 3 times alone, so your obviously not a cafc fan if you think he's lightweight!

"Baldock must be worth more than Solly,for a start forwards are hard to get and plenty of fullbacks kicking about,and Solly is to lightweight"

Solly is a class act, Baldock will not make the prem league, Solly will that's the price difference. As for light weight I'm not sure you've seen him to call him that, one of the strongest players I've seen pound for pound. Chalrton will keep him, we love him to bits.



02 Aug 2012 08:35:33
According to the Mail Online Cardiff City are set to sign former QPR striker Heider Helguson. In my opinion that would be a waste as I think Gestede is a better target man and is a better investment in the long term, as Helguson is now 34.

Good experience and a proven goal scorer on a free - no brainer!! Adds good squad depth!!

Great signing if true

And you'd be right!

Helguson is premier quality, he has proven himself and won't drop back down to championship now.

Yes but for now i think he would be a good man with experance to get us promoted

No its not a waste for a free a good goal record 34 which means now we got some more experience for players like mason and gestede, gestede gets injured often it would be a good replacement plus helguson could teach gestede how to stop being injury prone as helguson has not been injured for a long time

Hes just signed official website confermed it

He got injured this season so don't know what your on about mate....

And how 2 stay on his feet

As a QPR fan i'll be sad to see heider go but not unsuprised. Been hearing tommy smith may follow him up the m4. Heider has scored at around 1 in 3 over the last 2 seasons and is second to none holding the ball up at championship level. Other rumours of a bid by cardiff for Bothroyd may be wide of the mark But with QPR rumoured to be looking at Berbatov and Defoe i rekon there could be a fair chance of a loan deal if QPR pay a chunk of the wages

Yes helguson is prem quality but its not always about the prem and helguson isnt going to get any game time at qpr and no other prem team is in for him and what i meant by not always about prem is that Malky is a good friend of helguson and Malky admires him, pluswe just signed him!



02 Aug 2012 08:07:01
Gus Poyet keeps saying he wants a midfielder and striket of premiership quality..... where r they then? Who r they?

Just bid for PAul Taylor at Posh

CMS is going McCormack joining then another striker and midfielder to join soon

He can 'want' all he likes, he needs to realise he manages Brighton a team in the championship. Has that not.sunk in yet?..

Scott Allen is on his way too Liverpool, as they have had a £12.5 M bid accepted by Swansea.

Don't you mean joe Allen ?

Its Joe Allen, and the bid was rejected. Personal terms have been agreed between Joe and Liverpool.

Would he be the brother of the better known Joe Allen from Swansea?? ;-)

Not bad considering scott allen is an american figure skater
i guess you mean JOE ALLEN!

If that's Joe, it's believable. If it's the Scott Allan who plays for WBA, it's very unbelievable.

Joe -__-

If you can't get the player's name right then credibility is a touch low...

Allen will sign after the Olympics
Liverpool are speaking with Ramirez agent, however if they do not agree a fee Liverpool have some alternatives in mind.

How can personal terms be agreed when the the transfer fee is not? That would be tapping up in the extreme {Ed001's Note - not if Swansea have given permission to talk with the player.}

Dissapointed with Brendan Rogers, self self self, he makes an agreement with Swans knowing full well what the get out clause in Allen's contract is. I will be disapponted if Allen goes but the young man's head has been turned. I would prefer if he went to Spurs and played alongside Gylfi and Gareth Bale. That would show Rogers not to make an agreement and keep it.

I'm sorry but I'm sitting here fingers crossed joe will stay and all I read is 'allen pushing closer to anfield' and things like this but where is any proof of this somebody enlighten me to a reliable source quoting joe wanting to go until then no he has not agreed personal terms

Hmmmm scott allen??? yet another name which liverpool are linked with lol by the way its joe so pointless posting if u get joe and scott mixed up

I heard scott allen was a really good player...even if he is abetter figure skater



02 Aug 2012 06:34:32
sunderland put a bid in of 7m for scott sinclair think it will take more than that would be a good signing

If he was to leave it would be to a much bigger and better club

Sunderland are bigger and better, so what's your point??

Who wrote this???????? fourth biggest stadium in premier league average crowd 42,000 get your facts write

Who wrote this above sunderland can hold 50 summit thousand if you were talking about them and 42000 for swansea would not make them the 4 biggets ground so i think youll find get YOUR facts right mate!

Are you on something stadium of light holds 49,000 !!!!! how do i know?cos i go every other week!! you get youre facts right

I think he means as in competetive terms

Fulham set to make an improved bid for Huddersfield's Jordan Rhodes

It will need to be 8 Million plus add ons

Rhodes better of at Town! Fulham a nothing club with no ambition compared to Town ;-) {Ed020's Note - lol!!}

Fulham set to sign ross mcormack of leeds instead of jordan rhodes

Fulham are a well established premier league team on the up with a great youth system including players like kerim frei. Huddersfield have only recently got promoted to the championship

Would agree , why chose a club who will struggle this season?
Better off staying at Huddersfield

A nothing club who have reached the final of the Europa cup, tell me which final Huddersfield appeared in when they (never) have even played in Europe.

The playoff final

If Fulham have such a great youth system then why do they need to bid millions of pounds for a 22 year old from a club that's just been promoted into the championship?!

Jon smiths actualy.

Apparently Rhodes is off to blackburn instead? GTR

Kerim frei is Turkish? Anyway i think the comment above was a joke, but if you want to compare trophies then theres no contest really..

Lets not get on the my club is better than your club rubbish. At the end of the day if no one meets Town's valuation of Rhodes (8 million) then he's going nowhere. Chairmen, manager and player have all said this and are happy with that stance.

League 3 times in a row won fa cup and beend in Europe read your history before running your mouth. Gav htafc

I am a town fan but have to disagree with comment about Rhodes joining Fulham, who may not be the best premiership team they is but are not in danger of going down and he would at least play regular football at Fulham, so in my opinion would be a good move for him, it could take him 5/6 years to get there with town so fair play to him if he wants to go let him and cash in, spend the money on 2 quality players and bank the rest makes sense to me. John

Huddersfield and fulham have no support

Rhodes will join fulham for around 5 mill,and hudds have nil chance of premiership this decade

AGAIN I reiterate. The valuation is 8 million. A valuation that has been sent by the manager and the chairmen. Either Fulham meet it or the offer will be rejected. 5 million IS NOT ENOUGH!!

Just to correct the Fulham fan Town have played in Europe 71/72 anglo Italian cup. How many Trebles have Fulham won.

Fulham 80 million in debt. I wouldn't call them a club not at risk of relegation or a safe move.

Man utd 500 million in debt does that mean he won't go there either cause it is not a safe move, every club is in same boat apart from man city. John



02 Aug 2012 01:19:28
Craig Beattie to sign a 2 year deal at League 1 Carlisle. Beattie has been offered a contract from Newco Ranger who he is currently on training/trial with but has had better terms from both Carlisle and Notts County. Notts County are now believed to be cooling there interest in Beattie as location would be a key factor in the move.

Makes sense really with Carlisle being much closer to Scotland - notts fan

He's not all that anyway, yeah he might do ok in league one but I dont rate him.



02 Aug 2012 01:18:42
Burnley Interested In Brian Stock, Eddie Howe has revealed there may be 1 or two more signings and Brian Stock is top of the list.

Burnley Have currently signed:

Joseph Mills (on loan from Reading)
Luke O'Neill
George Porter
Jason Shackell
Sam Vokes

Will you STOP saying that Brian Stock is on Burnley's list of transfers? It's NOT true. There was some speculation weeks ago but it's all hearsay, no evidence. RUMOUR. Please disregard all Stock posts. Trust me.

Look on sky transfer centre

Then check sky sports news burnley says it right there

Burnley are linked with brian stock and should wrap up the signing soon , its on sky sports news

No, it says " " that's not a story, it's a filler, there is no NEW information, there has always been news of interest, some stories back in the middle of July saying "Burnley are close to wrapping up a deal for Stock" So, no, i wouldn't believe it.

There was also stories back in the middle of july saying that were close to signing sam vokes and we only just signed him so anythings possible . UTC

And i would believe it if it was in yesterdays local paper aswel

Long staying at wba



02 Aug 2012 00:48:41
Fulham rumours:
Dempsey will join Liverpool for 4mil+Charlie Adam

Dembele will either go to Man Utd for £15mil or Real Madrid (who reported their interest yesterday) for £10mil + Sahin on loan

Missed out on Jordan Rhodes who looks set to sign for Blackburn

Arshavin is Jol's big name signing target for this summer

Defoe is still a possibility as Rhodes has fallen through

Talks with Matt Jarvis continuing but depends on what happens with Dempsey

8m for a player unproven even at championship level nice money if you can get if

Fear for Fulham this season

You will get none of them as for Rhodes to Blackburn don't be silly he will go to one of the bigger championship side or team in prem

Doubt any of these will come through. As for Rhodes to Blackburn, the only Championship club that would have even a slight chance of signing him would be one of the favourites for promotion like Bolton, but personally I think if he was ever going to go, it would've been to Reading.

And blackburn arent a big championship club? :L GTR

Don't fear for fulham we have plenty of good players don't need people who don't want to be at club. Dempsey has had one great season people getting carried away.

Why does everyone think Fulham will struggle this season? Dempsey isnt Fulhams only good player and their new signing Mladen Petric will be this seasons demba ba! Another top half finish

How are Blackburn not a big championship club? :L



02 Aug 2012 00:35:40
Southampton have been linked with a move for Bolton keeper Bodgan. The move is supposed to be worth 5 million for the shot stopper. Bolton may consider this offer as Bodgan may not be happy at a Championship club and they have just signed Lonergan from Leeds. Also 5 million pounds is a lot of money to a club like Bolton who can use it to make further signings to push back towards the Premiership.

Saints fan here. Firstly I don't believe Bolton are too bad off financially despite going down and I'm quite sure that they won't want to sell Bogdan. Secondly Kelvin Davis has just had a great season and we have just bought a promising young keeper. I can't see the logic in spending 5mill on a keeper, another young up and coming keeper would make more sense.

Good if true - he is a quality keeper but we need to strengthen centre back and right mid too - this will be a lot of changes in a short timeframe...

The reasoning behind the signing is that Davis is very likely to retire at the end of the season so we need a back up for Davis and Bodgan is a terrific keeper. Would say though need a bit more focus on getting Centre Backs.

The way Jack Butland's playing I'd prefer we spent the money on him. Definetly need another keeper. I personally don't believe the fees that have been quoted in the papers for Butland. He's definitely got a lot of talent but at the end of the day has only ever played a dozen games at league two level. If we offered 6million I think BCFC would bite our hands off.

We must sign a CB before the start of the season to give us more cover, also needs time to settle in, any news who this might be?

Quality keeper?

Bolton are not in a good place financially. Parachute payments are higher and longer lasting than before, but Bolton have had a high debt around their neck for a few seasons now, I remember a figure of around 70-80million being mentioned at the beginning of last season. (Which is part of the reason they got relegated as the last 2 seasons have seen them significantly reducing their wage bill and transfer expenditure.)

Davis is not retiring! Where the hell did you get that from? Davis is our No 1 and Gazzaniga is No 2.


As a Bolton fan anyone stupid enough to pay 6 million for Bogdan can have him.
Good keeper but not not god. Got a long way to go to match our past greats like Jussi and Keth Branagan.

If we were going to buy a goalkeeper for 5 million we would be buying Jack Butland, we would not pay that for Bogdan.

although I suspect we would take him for a lot less.

Next useless rumour please!

Davis knows he hasn't got long left he's actually recently had talks about being the most senior player and in a few seasons time (possibly next season) is likely to go on to coaching at the club. That's why they want another keeper quickly.

Wouldn't put it past saints with the money they have been throwing at clubs for players RODRIGUEZ 7m really?

I don't really get why some like the comment above see 7mill as such an astronomical figure for JayRod.
Young, clearly talented and with an eye for goal. Teansfer fees are all relative to the return you get on the player. How many people still raise eyebrows at the 12mill that Arsenal paid us for a 17 yr old who had never played above league 1? He's now in the England squad!

Bogdan going nowhere and good to see a level headed fan on here Southampton first poster!
Typical Bolton fan coming on here to yet again put down one of his own team members the team he claims to support.
Bolton are in debt to the owner a soft debt only 10 million owed to bank. Nothing to do with why we got relegated and only just reduced wage bill at the end of last season. We were relegated because of injuries to our best players and not being able to replace them!

03 Aug 2012 11:12:16
Bolton do not have large debts to the banks it is to one owner.

Don't call me a typical Bolton fan slanging off our own players, but I m entitled to my opinion and I don't think Bogdan was up to relegation fight,a good keeper but along way to go to be a brilliant keeper. I blame the club we should have kept Al Habsi....hence my reason if anyone is stupid enough to pay 5 MILL TAKE IT. I have been a fan for over 30 years through think and thin, so don't call mt support for the club, you can ask my wife ... {Ed003's Note - He's right she told me last night :-) }

The thing is though Number One Bolton Fan All them persons on Bolton blogs say the same thing as you whilst slagging off every player and the manager. Also the word is support, banging on about how one of our players aint worth this or that isn't supporting is it? By the way i am also entitled to my opinion so stop whinging :) I've visited loads of blogs for other teams and never seen any that have supporters as miserable & critical as Bolton's!



02 Aug 2012 00:15:48
Celtic will loan Bangura out to Utrecht in the Eredivisie once they sign another striker, which currently looks to be Norwich City's James Vaughan. Lennon still sees potential in Bangura, and views Dutch football as a suitable challenge.

Don't you watch Sky Sports or read newspapers ? Vaughan is not going to be sent on loan as he is very much part of Houghtons plans for this season.

Vaughan isnt going anywhere! Hes gonna rip the PL up this season! You wait!

Yeah because sky sports information is always spot on and I believe everything that the papers say!

It was Houghton who said there was no substance to the rumour about vaughan

By the way it's Hughton!



02 Aug 2012 00:03:01
A dunne of millwall
is going to
leyton orient

Great if true

Why would he ?

Would be good if this went through!

Please let this be true

No one has left yet though so he can't e coming in. Until Mooney or Chorley (or Laird maybe) leave then he won't be joining.

Chorley could be moving soon. This will allow Slade to bring-in a Right-back or midfielder. I have also been informed that Dunne is Orient bound.

Dunne isn't good enough for Millwall any more, he's an honest player, but definitely not championship standard.

Orient in talks with Jo Kuffour, and a deal is expected to be completed over the weekend. With the extra money due from the George Porter tribunal, Slade is also keen to bring-in a midfield player, with Lee Cook top of his list.

Well, was i right ?



02 Aug 2012 00:01:05
Portuguese Hot Shot Rui Miguel signing for Oldham in the next day or two.
Source: worker at club

I still think that we need to sign a proper goal poacher who will score 20 plus goals a season because although Simpson is looking good I don't think he's that type of player and also he's quite injury prone

Rather have creative player who can make the final pass .no more hoofin to kuqi or any body else

Miguel had a great game against City's stars so i would give him a contract. Corney has already said on the OS that we need a striker now for the penalty box as we have plenty of ammunition going to put in the box. Miguel runs his socks off and his pass to Simpson against City was superb.

Miguel is a very quick creative player sign him up! he'll rip defences apart with his passing and he holds the ball up well (unlike kuqi), if miguel has a good quick strike partner such as simpson then he will do well



01 Aug 2012 23:58:25
wolves and wigan interested in signing Kalilou traore for 3 million. If he goes to wolves he will be joining up with fellow Mali international team mate Tongo Doumbia who recently joined Wolves on loan.

Hope he comes wigan be good replacement for momo

(if momo is moses) he woudnt replace him because this traoe from oddense is a defender

Derby are finishing their transfers with
Shane Ferguson and Max clayton
then Steve davies staying intil
January.Inwhich Derby will then buy
their replacement.

100% true

Really reliable source {Ed001's Note - Derby don't have the money to afford Clayton right now, though I am sure his older brother, Harry, is available. Max is highly unlikely to move this season, he is as highly rated as Powell, who just signed for United in a 6.6m deal. I think you can forget about him mate.}

What posistion does harry could be him i got told clayton and assumed it was max {Ed001's Note - Harry is a striker, but he didn't make the grade and I know Derby have been watching Crewe for a while, but my bet is it is one of the two midfielders they are looking at. Luke Murphy or Ashley Westwood would be the most likely, though Matt Tootle wouldn't be beyond the bounds of possibility. People are just assuming Clayton because he is their top prospect.}

Ed, where did you get 6.6 from its was 3.5 {Ed001's Note - if you say so, because it must be true as that was in the papers, the same ones that report Henderson cost Liverpool 20m when he actually cost 15.6m.}



01 Aug 2012 23:29:16
Matt Richie of Swindon is to have a medical on Friday as the two clubs have agreed and fee plus player believed to be wes Thomas

Are we really about to sell ritchie?

I dont think so no way will Di Canio let Ritchie go he is a key part for us this season.

When are you Bournemouth fans going to get it into your head Ritchie wont move to your club it like knocking your head against a brick wall telling you lot. Ritchie is a key part of our squad and if he did move it would be to a club maybe in the championship and for a fee of between 2-2.5 million.

Rubbish never happening

You obviously know how Paolo works. He really is going to sell the best player in the league, and take a non-league journeyman with 9 clubs in 6 years in part exchange. At least make up plausible rubbish !

AFCB fans are rapidly becoming more and more deluded by the day. My son was a mascot at a recent pre season friendly and walked out with Matt Ritchie, and we got to have a chat with him when he was substituted in the 2nd half. He is a really decent guy, lives and breathes football and seems to be a man of his word. He has PUBLICLY stated that he will be with Swindon for the following season and when we spoke to him he said he loves playing for STFC, Di Canio is a 'fantastic' manager, and when I asked him about AFCB he did the normal footballer talk saying its flattering but he has no interest in a move to AFCB, his exact words being 'not a chance'. Di Canio would not let him go for less than 2.5 million anyway, and yes AFCB have some cash (as do Swindon) but there is no way they will pay that. Time to accept AFCB fans that Ritchie aint interested in taking a backward step, Swindon are 8/1 to win league 1 for a reason.

I reckon it's the same person making the same rumour every week, just to wind Swindon fans up...

I can think of at least two players form sheff utd who are better then ritchie quinn and maguire

For starters you havent seen Ritchie play- secondly you are a Sheff Utd fan -thirdly be prepared Sheff Utd fans for the second season syndrone with Danny Wilson, he's done it at every club so far the drinking culture etc and poor results- Be Prepared.

^^ yes but are they worth 2.5m. No of course not, but then again neither is Ritchie. Knock off a nought and you are somewhere near to his true valuation,but these Swindon mugs just dont get it.

I dont follow Swindon myself but its clear too see that Di Canio has built one hell of a squad. They came and played at my team last week (Forest Green) and they honestly look frightening going forward, Matt Ritchie seriously looks like a great footballer, him and the other guy playing right back owned the game. Thankfully i got 9/1 on them to win the league 1 title. Thought their fans travelled well, must have been over a thousand, although the official total was given as 750, for the benefit of the taxman no doubt. I would have thought if Ritchie were to leave Swindon it would be (with the greatest of respect to Bournemouth) to a big club, top end championship at least. Good luck to Swindon, hope you do well this year

Thanks for that honest opinion mate! ^ good luck for next season and hope you do well!

On behalf of most Bournemouth fans, we know we aint & don't want Ritchie. We are fully aware of the price tag on him & this sage wont stop because someone wants to wind both sets of fans by the looks of it. There hasn't been anything on us signing Ritchie at all this year so no truth to it at all.

Stevenage will look to sign 3 strikers by the end of the week, David Connolly and Lukas Akins are done deals and are still in talks with Patrick Agyemang. Boro's squad will be complete with these signings.

Signed why would he not Tranmere Rovers finished 16 points and 6 places behind stevenage ??

Sam Baldock in talks with Watford -local lad and we were after him before he went to WHU so entirely plausible

He's already agreed a contract at Bristol City

He wants to stay in the London area and recently bought a new house close to Watfords London Conley training ground coyh

Turned down Bristol City

I`m a watford supporter and hope baldock aint going there. dont rate him 1 bit

Bid is accepted by West Ham but not contract. Watford could still hijack the deal... and I'm sure he'd rather come to us.

Do me a favour. Not good enough for Watford. Much more suited for Bristol City

Sam Baldock will sign with Watford on Monday following a medical Friday afternoon for an undisclosed fee.

Went to the st albans vs watford match tonight and it seems watford have given a trial or something of sorts to 30 year old goalkeeper Graham Stack after his contract ran out with hibernian in May.

He is just training with the club while bonham is injured, although I hear he played pretty well, could get a contract.

Izale McLeod scored for Portsmouth in a friendly today so it looks like he's signed for them despite their financial problems

He is there as a trialist, they are still unable to sign any players.


Yes, we haven't signed him yet, we have to remove 3 more players yet.

He will sign for us once the last 3 high earners are out of the door

Izale is on a pre contract and will be one of the first players to sign once able to, heard from the man himself

Dont get too excited hes not that good ,saw him a couple of times last year and he was pony.

Your players must be double pony because he got joint top scorer and top scorer year before

palace will sign peter ramage, jose baxter,diaz and possibly ross mccormack before the end of the transfer season

McCormack is joining Brighton with CMS going the other way

Lucas Akins has signed for Stevenage for an undisclosed fee. Tranmere have replaced him with Joe Thompson of Rochdale. Also Jake Cassidy is back to Tranmere on a 6 month loan.

Can't see Atkins wanting to sign for side like Stevenage Borough.

According to their website he has signed a three year deal

Who is Atkins? And who are Stevenage Borough? Ive heard of Akins and Stevenage FC
