wigan ins:

amr zaki (zamalek)-5million
heskey-free 50/50 though
dos santos (spurs)-loan

kirkland-already signed for sheff wed
gohouri-linked with cardiff and ipswich
diame-to move to everton in next 2 weeks unless he gets a better offer from another club
rodallega-linked with arsenal, liverpool and fulham(7)(18)As a wigan fan, i think it is rather hypocritical for you to to criticise evertons standard - diame will thrive there, where there is no pressure of relegationZaki is currently on the waste tip of footie - will not come to Wigan. Can see the others though....Zaki will be a free agent.I reckon dos santos will go swansea but i hope he comes to usArsenal looking to sign dzekoNobody was being hypocritical conisidering man utd and arsenal were rumoured to be linked and malaga and i would say they are better than everton but i agree he would like to sign for everton


01 Jun 2012 23:24:24
Gary Roberts has signed for Preston North End... Done.
(Terrier)(6)(19)No he as not and yes am a pne fanHe's already signed for shef weds


01 Jun 2012 21:58:14
Scunthorpe utd set to sign former Northwich Victoria striker Jonny Allan. Think he plays for gainsbo(2)(8)


01 Jun 2012 21:56:44

Jay Rodriguez - Burnley - £7,000,000
Scott Dann - Blackburn - £4,000,000
Mark Davies - Bolton - £2,500,000
Thomas Ince - Blackpool - £2,000,000
Thibaut Courtois - Chelsea - Season Loan

Radhi Jaidi - Retired
David Connolly - Released
Lee Holmes - Preston - Free Transfer
Jack Dovey - Eastleigh - Free Transfer
Harlee Dean - Brentford - Free Transfer
Bartosz Bialkowski - Released(26)(26) 

Southampton wont pay 7million for rodriguez
scott dann sounds legit
davies said he is staying at bolton
ince will go for about 3.5 million
courtois to go to athletico madrid againThey have already had a 7 mil bid appectedBrentford signed harlee dean on permanant deal from southhampton a couple of days agoRodriguez accepted would be happy with the rest but not sure about mark daviesIts going to cost you a whole lot more than 2 or 3.5 mill or Ince.Surley Chelsea will want Courtois to have a bit of prem experience before he starts for Chelsea?Would love to see all those players at Southampton but I can't see Courtois going.You won't get Mark Davies for £2.5 million. Bolton have slapped a fee of £4m on his head. The board have given assurance they won't sell,It doesnt say they havent signed harlee dean? (to the poster up above)Harlee dean signed for brentford fc 2 weeks agoTypical case of 'not a big club anymore' thinking you are! Were you ever a big club? Spending 7 million on Rodriguez? I think over paying to over compensate the fact any striker worth that won't join saints?! Grant holt scored nearly 20 goals in the prem been bid for less than 5 million? I hope Rodriguez signs and takes you down with Sharp.If Rodriguez fulfills his potential, he will have at least doubled is value in 3 years. Holt in 3 years will be released from whoever on a free. We hope Rodriguez signs as well.Courtois was sent to Athletico Madrid when Chelsea signed him last summer for two years. So I very much doubt that he will be with Southampton this season.


01 Jun 2012 21:55:55
Nahki Wells is set to complete move to Carlisle in deal of 200k + Rory Loy(2)(11)Wells signed on at BRadford for the year already, he ain't moving.

And if I'm right Carlisle didn't offer him a deal when they had him before.He wont come backEpic fail of a post, Wells was awful at Carlisle we certainly wouldn't pay £200,000 for him and Loy, who is 10 times better than Wells.


01 Jun 2012 21:51:23
Rotheram manager Steve Evans is set to raid Swindon Town FC for some of their foreign cast offs. It is believed Evans has lodged an 50K combined bid for Allessandro Cibocchi and Mehdi Kerrouche.(5)(10)Snap Evans hand off Di Canio! These two are not worth anything. Kerroche's attitude and fitness is shocking. Cibo is injury prone and good for a mistake a gameThey won't go we all hate evans he is fat nd is only here to eat our piesFans forget that without kerrouche's goals/freekicks and penalties in the early part of the season we wouldnt have won the league and may not have even made auto. I still think he's class under the correct training regime and as he's under contract id want at least 100k for him. he was rated at 500k on transfer market value before we signed himKerrouche would be a great player under a decent manager


01 Jun 2012 21:50:24
Any news on Barnsley front?(3)(7) 



01 Jun 2012 21:46:30
Bristol city have made a new offer for Coventry city centre back Keagh £500k and James Wilson in part exchange this is seen as a better offer than straight cash(2)(14)SISU (Cov's owner) would not be interested in any player exchanges... Unless Bristol City agree to pay their wages too!


01 Jun 2012 21:44:53
mike grella and jermaine johnson signing for the mighty bantams next week(4)(8)Not the first time I've heard this. Increased budget at City this year and many rumours around Blake/Gray/Johnson/GrellaSorry your wrong about grella as he as just put pen to paper with preston north end


01 Jun 2012 21:36:11
Celtic manager neil Lennon Not going anwhere sais the scottish Board(19)(2)Kadourri? He left before Jan. Owen? Just no...


01 Jun 2012 21:32:54
Norwich are considering a move for Dougie Freedman if the inevitable happens. The Canaries believe the lure of a bigger club will be enough to secure his services(8)(19)No hes not on their radar. Chris Hughton has been the boards number one choice to succeed Lambert for a while if he ever decided to walk out (like he has). just depends if he wants to come and compensation.Stop dreaming pal. why would he want to go to a club that are really struggle to stay in the prem. he`s young and still has a lot to learn. dont assume that cos he`s scottish that he has the midas touch.Joel Ward would be a bit mythed signed for palace because of freedmanNorwich are not a bigger club than Crystal palace.To be honest the only targets at the moment are what Lambert told McNally which he still thinks are a good idea. It will depend on who comes in.. Lennon - SPL players, Mackay/Hughton - Championship players, Lee Clarke - Lower leagues, Bruce/McLiesh - over rated expensive PL players or Free transfers. My favourite has to be Lennon, he has proven his loyalty and bravery with what he went through with abuse, Although he gets Champion League he has not done it in PL and he seems to be spending most of the time Mingling with the fans seeing as he is sent to stands most weeks."Norwich are not a bigger club than Crystal palace." LOLOh please! We @ NCFC know our place in the pecking order and yes, Villa are a bigger club than us in all respects. But Palace "not" bigger? List your reasons-but don't include gates, trophies won, Premier League/Division One status or history, because you don't come anywhere near us on those issues!Dougie Freedman to Palace! they finished in the lower half of the table even with all that so called talent they 'dont want to sell'. I think Norwich are setting their sights well low if they are interested in him.Southampton are a bigger club than both :L but i do agree Norwich are the bigger club as for Palace uh, your just not what you used to be. but Norwich Southampton are a bigger club than you are History and everything dates back 10 years before you and we spent more time in the prem than you so let that one go as well, and sorry but i cant help but think buttom three run next season for you due to what is happening right now to your club. i hope it does get back into shape though for next season because i cant wait to play you at home and away :D

celtic monitering matt hills (Leicster)
and Marcus Henrikson ( Rosenberg)
Michael Owen
Johny russell ( dundee united ) hes a die hard celtic fan !!
Jordan rhodes ( Huddersfield )
Ross Mckormack


Daniel Masjonavic
Cha du ri
Darren odea
Dom cervi
mark Wilson
badr el kadourri

Players geting moniterd at the hoops

Hooper ( Worth 7-10m) by Everton,Southhampton,West Brom,QPR

KI worth 2-5m by man u ( because a Darren Fletcher)

Darren Odea might b bought by leeds after LOAN SPELL(7)(21)Having a laugh hooper might get 5 million maxBig mas been away for weeks (AIK)
El kaddouri left in jan
Darren odea can't be bought he's a free agent..........Hes a die hard celtic fan !
so what !Neil Warnock has already siad he does not want O DearHere we go again another one who knows nothing about the club or the players if Hooper would only go for 5 million then why did Celtic reject 7 million from southampton.5 million max for hooper? So why have Southampton already had an 8 million offer rejected?Who the fk is matt hills?

LeicesterLadIf we will only get 5 mil for hooper why did we reject 7 mil in january?His name is matt mills ex reading captainBecause hooper has decent record in spl which is L1 level in England his fee has shot up!!no more than £4mill and that is a risk for prem clubHoppers value is going down as he is only doing it in spl against the likes of Motherwell who would not last a season in England's 2nd tier.L1 standard is spl.Seriously shut up with this league 1 crap. Celtic arent league 1 material, everyone knows that, all you english people just criticise Celtic because they are scottish, yous must be stupid, a 7 million big (that is 2 more million than 5) was made for Hooper in Janurary since then he has scored more goals, so if anything his price has went up.If Jelavic came to Everton for 5mil pounds, there's no way in hell we'd pay 7-10million for Hooper.... that's just madness.

Steve EFC


01 Jun 2012 20:43:05

They cant stand each other


01 Jun 2012 20:49:51
Saints are poised to bid £3m for Mariappa and snatch him from under the noses of Reading. Butterfield may be used as in a potential reduced cash + player offer(13)(18)That would work if it wasn't for the fact that Reading's bid wasn't rejected and Mariappa will have a medical when he returns from international duty.Not he's not having a medicalUnless Reading start talking about a sensible amount - they will not need a doctor next week that is for sureSaints have no interest in maricrappa. Waste of space. Bigger and better things.No he's not having a medical right now he's on international duty but when he returns the deal will be done. The Sky Sports story is about 2 weeks behind.Reading won't get him I don't know if saints are after him hope he stays wfc


01 Jun 2012 20:49:13

West brom are getting alumina from arsenal as he was released, Albion to offer him a 22 grand a week pay deal(3)(17)Haha what a joke.


01 Jun 2012 19:29:43
Tranmere to resign Andy Taylor following his release from Sheff Utd. Steve Simonson also being considered but the form of OFW may not see this happen. Gary Roberts is another to be offered terms alongside Danny Cadamartri. I told you about the signing of Ben Burgess over a week ago!(5)(9)Gary roberts to sign for wednesdayWhy would you want him though?Huddersfield released him and you are better than themAndy taylor is a realistic signing for tranmere, alot of speculation of tranmere chasing anthony kay but hes still under contract with huddersfield and the main reason he left was because his family could not settle on merseyside so cant see that happeningI'd have Cadamarteri at Rovers - could work well with Burgess


01 Jun 2012 18:55:45
Walsall are close to signing Stratford Utd striker Mykel Beckley, Mykel scored 15 goals for Stratford last season and Dean Smith sees him as an ideal replacement for the departed Alex Nicholls who has joined Northampton(4)(3)Doubt that will happenBased on what? He is definitely on Walsall's radar and the other clubs looking at him include Mansfield Town and Port Vale so if Mykel has faith in his ability, he should come to a division one club! If you read this Mykel, forget 'decisions, decisions' and come and join the Saddlers!


01 Jun 2012 19:52:51
Bournemouth have beaten Sheffield United to the signature of Rotherham's Lewis Grabban on a 3 year contract for a fee believed to be £750,000(20)(4)It's been confirmed as £300,000Its 300k


01 Jun 2012 19:37:48
Bournemouth have had a bid believed to be in the region of £1million rejected for Bristol City striker Brett Pitman.(3)(10)You aint got 1millionYou're right we haven't....... We've got £2.2 billion.......No we aint got 1 million. We got a lot more than that, little RICH club.Yeh we have new russian owners, there loaded


01 Jun 2012 18:39:07
I work at the club shop at ytfc, and
i am also related to John Fry. I know
for a fact we have no money to spend
but that we have made an enquiry
about Nathan Smith, James Constable
and Akinfenwa. Also i have heard
Freddy Eastwood is 90% at yeovil town
already just waiting for Gary Johnson
to return from his holiday to be able
to complete the deal.(4)(12)And if you were related to john fry then he wont be happy that you put transfer targets on you made me laugh .. hI also have heard these rumours, i can simply say that i would be delighted to have these players come to the club. it would be a great step up from the current squad. the news that nathan jones has left today was, quite simply, a heartbreak. The lads a legend, his years of dedication at the club have been top notch. {Ed003's Note - ..Nathan Jones you've been gone too long....]Oh yeah good one.


01 Jun 2012 18:33:59
Peter Ramage to Crawley.(7)(11)


01 Jun 2012 18:29:24
Darren O'Dea & Danny Swanson will join Peterborough United on fee transfers.(4)(18)There wages will be too high especially
both being International footballers^ we have money^ not for their wage demands though. If we had money we wouldnt keep fishing in non league for players.


01 Jun 2012 18:24:21
Alex McLeish willl become the nex City manager
if Malky Mackay joins Norwich(7)(22)Not a bad replacement if this was to be true!I've heard on the grapevine that McLeish has been sounded out to be the next manager of the canariesHaha no way is mcleish coming to norwich. doesn't fit the profile at all.Agent 4 - 5 - 1 has been unleashed. He was almost successful at Villa but ultimately failed in his mission to create misery and relegation. Be careful for what you wish!That should please the Swansea fans.If mcleish joins city we'll still be in the championship by the end of next season or relegated to the 1st division


01 Jun 2012 18:20:55
Peterborough United have agreed a £350k fee with Oldham Athletic for goalkeeper Alex Cisak. Cisak has cut his holiday in Australia short to complete the deal.(5)(11)Hope so cause he is in last year of his contract, that would also be a very good fee to say he is in his last year so i wouldn't mind that one bitBest 'keeper we've had at Boundary Park for years, so wouldn't be at all surprised if this were true.Like the sound of this!


01 Jun 2012 18:20:53
Chris Hughton is being lined up to succeed Lambert.(14)(11)Indeed he is, but may not be possible


01 Jun 2012 18:19:53
Paul Sturrock has accepted a 165k bid from Shrewsbury Town for winger Ryan Hall.

(BBC Shropshire:James Bond)(11)(5)Nonsense. And I'm a shrews fan!Where's James Bond said that then? {Ed003's Note - Bloody hell ED 007 gets about}So you say.....


01 Jun 2012 18:16:45
Barnsley defender Lee Collins is a target for Bradford City, who look set to miss out on Rory Mcardle.

Phil Parkinson is also taking a look at Sheffield United's young attacking midfielder, Erik Tonne.(0)(19)Collins only just joined Barnsley! Would he really drop back into League Two so soon after leaving it?Only just signed for barnsleyWhy would barnsley do this thyve JUST SIGNED HIMSigning Ben Parker on Wednesday.Who signing Ben Parker? City or barnsly


01 Jun 2012 18:16:28
Chris Hughton will be the next Norwich Manager(20)(13)


01 Jun 2012 18:02:00
Been told by reliable source that Jordan Rhodes is off to Fulham in the summer. They bidded for him in January however Huddersfield pleaded to Rhodes to stay and get them promoted and he would be free to go in summer.

Also, Dembele and Dempsey will be off in the summer.



01 Jun 2012 17:37:33
James Hayter in talks with his former club, AFC Bournemouth, about a possible return having been released by Doncaster Rovers in May. It would allow for James to be back closer to his family on the Isle of Wight.(10)(10)Heard he is going to charlton along with coppinger


01 Jun 2012 17:32:03
west brom are in talks with sunderland over the possibility over getting mignolet for £3 million, as a number 2 behind Foster(5)(31)Why would sunderland sell there no1 keeper?

Mignolet would not gain anything being a no2 keeperNo way we will sell him. We have let gordon go leaving only two keepers we are not about to sell another. Mignolet will stay and be our number 1We are guna rip up the league with next season.........................................NOT


01 Jun 2012 17:30:41
West Brom were hoping Chris Hughton would resign when Blues failed to get promoted - this has scuppered Albions plans and they are now looking at Ralf Rangnick. He, however is deliberating over an offer made by the club but is unhappy at the proposed transfer budget. What next?...........(6)(9)This is taking to long. Surely it shouldn't take almost 2 months to find a decent managerI agree. So typical of Albion. I don't think we had to panic but this is silly nowIt's ok. I heard Alex mcleash is having an interview for the baggies job tomorrowHe has a home in the area, out of a job, the ideal man for the job. eck to WBA


01 Jun 2012 17:26:39
A journo friend of mine who writes for local sports rag has shadowed a few Ipswich Scouts in the past 3 years on various fact finding missions,normally in Scotland and Holland, this year he is doing the same and has been told he will not need his passport or over night bag as Ipswich are looking local in the main, to that end, expect signings to come from col u , Norwich, posh and Stevenage . He has been told there is money to be spent but only in accordance with fair play. Take this as you will but any talk of spending Connor Wickhams profit on 2 or 3 marquee players is very wide of the mark.PJ is looking at cheap potential alla Hewit and pushing the youth players to make the grade. This coincides with Brian Klug coming back ( not 100%) to develop the talent already in place.There is alot of fringe talent local and prices will be fair so do not expect big name signings.This is a time of patience as there is a long term plan in place but things will start to look up very soon. I know there are no names on this post regarding transfers, this is because i am not privy to such info,i am mealy stating what is happening now in regards to the scouting .(7)(8)You talk a lot of sense and i have to say a very good read but I think you are wrong about Norwich players as it would be seen as a step back.Interesting and I have to say as a town fan more 35 yrs I would be very happy if we went down this road .I agree because the last time we signed big name players like chopra and bullard they have become a bit of a waste of money!Hutchings has said we need to strenghten the spine of the team, we need a GK,2x CB, CM (to replace Leadbitter) and a ST, whilst I agree PJ is looking at younger players. I'm not sure we can get all if these from just the clubs you mention. Also our only signing so far has come from Macclesfield.Think jewell is definately sniffing round ben williams magnus okuonghae and john joe o toole as all are free and would walk straight into ipswich first teamAnother great example of an Ipswich fan's literal prowess. 'Mealy'?! Where you hungry when you wrote this garbage? 'Merely' just for future reference. Also, shadowing Ipswich scouts must be a short & interesting experience. Surely it doesn't take much 'scouting' to find the the next Bullard to bleed the club dry for an extortionate weekly fee. If Ip5w1ch are going back to the local parks for their next great player it simply means Marcus Evans is fed up with chucking money down the drain. Perhaps if Ipswich scouts look hard enough they will find the next Jordan Rhodes (Whoops!- nice discard there!) Don't worry you will get out of the Championship in the end I'm sure. When ME pulls his cash out and League 1!Oh yes because in the past ten days everything seems rosey in canary land and as for the op, he/she made one spelling mistake and that is the only thing you can pick on. Whilst I agree we will sign from further afield , it was still a good concise post and I have no doubt we will sign local also . Tx op as I believe every word which lets face it on a site like this, that is saying something .


01 Jun 2012 17:23:20
Lee Clark will be appointed the new Norwich manager when Paul Lambert goes to Villa after compensation has been agreed. McNally does not want to sell Grant Holt but Tottenham are set to offer Naughton and Dos Santos as a swap deal to replace Van Der Vaart. Clark will look to replace Holt with Jordan Rhodes from former club Huddersfield. Clark also looks to pick up Former Fulham captain Danny Murphy on a free after being released by the Londoners. Apart from this and the odd signing Lee Clark has been told by the board to continue the run of the club transfers started by Paul Lambert buying young, hungry players with lower wages. McNally will have a big budget and is right behind Clark. These are some possible targets:
M Phillips
and others(11)(30)No...Just no.No no no. why would a new manager go for paul lamberts targets or ex players? new manager will have fresh ideas and new targetsPowell looks like a done deal with man utd. going back on loan next season.Believe me Lee Clark wouldn't go to a club where there wasn't millions and millions to waste. Ps if he does you'll be relegated on the lowest number of points in history!!


01 Jun 2012 15:51:18
ed any news on new manager for hull city? {Ed001's Note - not that I know of.}(2)(7)Now football on twitter saying bruce will sign next week


01 Jun 2012 17:40:30
West Brom head scout Dan Ashwoth has identified 5 possible signing for their new manager, believed to be Ralf Rangnick, which will be confirmed in the next 48 hours.

Mariano Pavone - (Free)
Grant Holt - (Asking price may be an issue)
Danny Guthrie - (Free)
Paul Robinson - (3.5m)
Zak Whitbread - (Free)
Robert Snodgrass - (2.5m)

Jonas Olsson, Peter Odemwingie and Simon Cox will be leaving the club.(7)(20)Erm, Snodgrass fee will be an issue? Value: 8 million at the moment, and Leeds will probably be embargoed soon anyway.Those players won't be leavingIf those signings were to be true, none of them would improve us except Guthrie (strong squad player) and Snodgrass who is an ideal player we need. i wouldnt like to see Holt or any of the others.. if Ralf is to be our manager id like to think he would attract bigger names for smaller fees!


01 Jun 2012 17:21:21
Wilfried Zaha to join West Ham for £5 million,plus Sam Baldock going to Palace on loan for the season! Big Sam also hoping to sign Kieron Richardson, Blackburn 'keeper Paul Robinson and Michael Owen.(23)(26)No, just noI lol'dWould be a great signing but Palace would want a bit more for him i think"Palace would want a bit more for him i think" Oh Nigel, please stop fooling around.


01 Jun 2012 17:19:11
Reading had bid rejected for Watford defender Adrian MariappaPD(21)(7)£2m bid rejected. Not going to be as cheap as some Reading fans thought :-)This is an interesting one as i was told a while ago we have had a bid accepted by a few reliable sources. i assume that watford have upped there price due to the takeover
MrRfcI am still being told a fee is agreed
MrRfcThis is false information. He is going for a medical after he gets back from international duty. The bid has been accepted at 1.8 million. Personal contract has not been discussed though.
From reliable source inside reading fc.Mapps worth at least 4 milWouldn't be surprised if marriappa was resigned by brendan Rodgers for liverpoolI don't think that has anything to do with it - we rejected £2.5m from the toon in Jan and said it would be £3m +add ons - can't see why that would be different now.
I would love to think we were screwing you on the basis of your new wealth - but in the transfer market we are real amateurs - so i doubt it is that simple!1.8 mil dream on wIs he any good Watford fansYou are right MrRfc i have now been told a fee has been agreed from a different source.

PDYes he is very good - if you sell Mills for £5m - Mapps is worth 10 - so be sensible on the money - someone will pay £3m + add ons and despite what all of the "in the know hob nobs" say on here a fee under that won't be agreed unless it involves a player or 2Fine you can have Church.
MrRfcAdrian Mariappa will sign for Reading from Watford for a fee of £2.25m plus add onsWhen you say reliable source do you mean the chairman or manager. Oh the tea lady, thought so!What are you all talking about, all our players and staff go to Cardiff.You asked if he is any good? He's crsap and can't kick a ball, no point wasting your money and buying him, no he really bad, Dont sign him.:)Mills' price was inflated. No Reading fan thinks Mills was worth what Leicester paid."When you say reliable source do you mean the chairman or manager. Oh the tea lady, thought so!"
Just you wait and see


01 Jun 2012 17:17:47
2m bid rejected for gunter and 2m rejected for mariappa reading prepare to go 3m each to strengthen defensively then onto the sig and 2 strikers GAME ON(10)(8)The Sly Spurts article is about two weeks behind. The deal is nearly done just a medical to complete.Well, I wish you luck-because based on your current success rate you are going to need it!
Especially when some other Reading fans indicate you are going to sign a whole new team. That shows a lot of loyalty to the players who got you to the Premiership!"Especially when some other Reading fans indicate you are going to sign a whole new team"

Its simply a fact of some fans getting over excited now we have a new owner, I expect a few new signings but nothing on the scale of what has been suggested on this site.Whole new squad is never going to happen. Some of the players we want to sign will go to other clubs. It's called, not putting all your eggs in one basket.

To greedyHeskey to replace holt urrm thats complete bolocksLoad of rubbish

Owen Hargreaves to sign for Brighton after release from Man City(9)(25)Where did you pull that rumour from , another crock, not for us, we only want fit footballers, not manchester utd/city sicknotes . Big GIs this supposed to be GOOD news ???You say you don't want Hargreaves but Vicente was hardly mr reliable when it came to being fit and he turned out to be a good addition so you never knowI think Hargreaves would be a good signing, he's no even injury prone he broke his leg when he was playing at his best, then he was out for a year never got in the team for city. He would be a solid player to have, also the guys point about Vicente above is true, he would be decent. However I would rather see Trotter come Brighton.I not saying he is not a good footballer but a sick note, At Manchester United he was plagued with injuries and he was allowed to leave the club at the end of his contract in June 2011 making only 27 appearances from 2007-2011, in the last three years at Old Trafford we saw him play only six minutes of first-team football due to chronic knee problems, At city he played just over two-and-a-half hours of action – 2010-2011 Big G

Oxford United are NOT close to signing Frank Nouble or even held talks with him, despite some rumours starting today!
Oxford have spoke to Matt Bloomfield and Jon Shaw from Wycombe and Gateshead though.
And NO offer has been accepted for much wanted striker James Constable...yet.(8)(10)


01 Jun 2012 16:55:16
Michael Owen to Everton cannot believe it gaining pace this rumour but seems to be gaining pace(6)(25)Pretty sure he had talks with Stoke this week and is set to sign for them


01 Jun 2012 16:44:57
I said this morning that West Ham had agreed a 3 million pound deal to sign a striker and that striker lookslike being Ze Eduardo from Genoa. If the deal does happen he will sign a 3 year deal at Upton Park.

01 Jun 2012 16:31:01
Sheffield Wednesday and Charlton have both had bids in the region of £700,000 turned down by Preston for talented midfielder Paul Coutts(5)(13)Coutts is a cracking player (at a rather poor league 1 side) I can see him going to any number of Championship clubs...but Peterborough must be in the lead.....£500k should get him as he wants to leave as he hates Westley.50/100k more should do the jobWe've not actually paid a fee for any of our 11 signingsHow do you know he hates westley?"How do you know he hates westley?" I never said that but, didn't they have a row last season?

Westley (IMO) only kept him on because he is a saleable asset, I'm still hoping he'll be a Charlton player next season however, any number of clubs could get him.

From above, how can a bid or 500K better a bid of 700K clearly math is not a hot topic in Peterborough!Coutts will go for less than 500K


01 Jun 2012 16:30:16
The Anthony Gardner to Sheffield Wednesday rumour is not true. He is currently out injured for 4 months with a grade 1 hamstring injury, so he would fail the medical.(6)(7)He could still pass a medical while injured, srewart downing was signed by aston villa from middlesbrough while he had a long standing injuryGardner isn't injuredHe is hes been out since the start of april. his hamstring "nearly came off the bone."Hes not injured hopefully sign mondayDo we have any reports of whether he is injured or not rather than keep reposting he is or he isn't. Was injury in a match?

Randy Lerner has given Paul Lambert £25m to spend + a free whip on wages.
Lambert will be announced within the next 12 hours as AVFC manager..
He will be looking to start a new era by selling hutton,warnock,collins,makoun,defouneso. (excess of £10-15m expected from these sales).
Lambert will look at bringing in 2 quality strikers,2 good midfielders & 3 solid defenders & a new 2nd keeper (could be reserve keeper Benji Siegrist).

Exciting times to be a Villa fan again!

Withe1983(7)(26)So you stopped being a villa fan because they were losing?Is this 25m depending on 10-15m on selling on player ?Enjoy it while it lasts. he'll be walking out on you eventually. hes joining you the same way Norwich knicked him from colchester. leopard spots and all that..

Jermain Defoe looks certain to be leaving Tottenham this summer. Southampton, Stoke, Newcastle and Aston Villa are all monitoring the situation(12)(16)Reckon Stoke will be the one he chooses if he does leave, so he can partner up with Crouch up front againAccepted I think you mean ........I am a Saints fan and i dont think we will pay his wages. People keep saying we have rich owners but we still have to be sensible and realistic.I think he'll stay in LondonHe agreed to join Stoke in Jan so guess he'll go there as well. They can certainly afford him.Well said saints fan I agree come on you saintsEx-Portsmouth why would we want him? (saints fan)Out of them teams, it looks like it could be Stoke. Him and Crouch upfront again would be a key influence in his choice. Reliable rumours had it that he had agreed to come to Stoke in January but he'll be coming in the summer

Michael Owen has been invited to join Reading's pre season training on July 1st and will be given an opportunity to prove his fitness and earn a contract with the Royals(10)(14)And by the time he proves he is not fit-say mid July- probably too late to get hold of a quality striker, as they will have been signed up so they are able to take part in their new clubs pre-season schedule!
Sounds pretty sensible to me-not!Funny that, he's still in Portugal.Which is where Reading are having their pre-season friendlies this year.It's not for another month, why's it relevant where he is now?Nonsense, nonsense, NONSENSE! He won't come to Reading. Reading won't pay more than £25,000 pwAnd Owens basic at Man United was £10k a week with bonus. If you remember S.A.F gave Owen a chance!

David McNally- 'Grant Holt Not for sale'(11)(11)He's not for sale but if we get offered 10m we have to acceptEvery player has their price my friend.Your skint. you need players. he wants to leave. win win in my mindGrant Holt replied......want a bet McNally.Who says we are skint. Even Mcnally has said we are financially sound. Where do these people come from who come on here!
I reckon Holt will go, but we'll try and get a decent price for him!We are skint are we ? - complete rubbish the club is not skint nor even close to it and no we do not have to sell any players, Go to Norwich web site and read the statement from chairman, he clearly states that the new manager will be handed a substantial budget for new signings.
Holt may be sold but it will only be for a stupid amount of money IE £5+ for a 31 year old who will only decrease in sell on value, and there is no guarantee that he will score as many goals next year.Agreed if he goes it will be 5mill+ which is stupid risk for someone to take.
we aren't skint but believe we are going to pay off all our debts this year hence the transfer budget will be tight for another we have to survive! board are taking a gamble cause want to be debt free.Yeah stupid money for an aging player who has handed a transfer request in wake up!10m for a 31 year old no chance, 4-5m tops and he will get sold


01 Jun 2012 16:13:30
Bournemouth weighing up Swindons Matt Ritchie as a replacement for Marc Pugh who looks likely to join either Cardiff, Ipswich, Burnley or West Ham later this week(5)(17)Bournemouth put an offer in for him in January for 750k and that was rejected. Now that Swindon are in the same league, any offer under £2million would be declined according to the Swindon board.Can your little club afford £2 million?They gave up in january as he cost too much, we're both in the same league now, why would he leave? Also aren't Bournemouth set to sign Robinson back from Huddersfield who is a winger?Come up with 1.5 to 2 mil and you have a good chance of landing him.Ritchie wont go to Bournemouth he wants to play under Paolo as he sees ambition at the club whereas Bournemouth are a smaller club ok theyve now gto a russian with a bit of money but he wont go anyway for less than 2 million which is the value the club have put on him.Robinson is a central midfielder do you not remember from his time at dean court!
can't see this one happening, swindon are too unrealistic and greedyHehe still sulking about our takeover ay Swindon? ;) little rich clubWe wont bid more than 1 mill for ritchie, probably not even that, Swindon are deluded, And after a conversation with pugh he hasnt ruled out a move, but wants to stayRobinson is a centre midfielder, not a winger, although we just signed Grabban from Rotheram who can play on the wing, aswell as Josh Mcoid who can play as a winger if neededRobinson is a box to box central midfielder, not a winger.As an Ipswich fan I would prefer Ritchie, but don't think he'll leave SwindonNnrealistic and greedy? Hhy would we sell to a smaller club than us in the same division? It's only natural to expect a little more from clubs in that situation.Oh sorry aha, dont follow bournemouth just thought he was a wingerI live in southampton but am an ipswich fan and have been to a couple bournemouth games i think marc pugh is a goodi player but i think i would rather see matt richie come to us as he is younger but i dont think he will leave swindon least till jan to see where they r in the leagueWhat is all this small club nonsense? We are now owned by billionaires and im afraid money talks in the game. I don't know one player who would say I will stay in league one/two with a club with no ambition because they get 1000 more fans than a club that will double my wages and are aiming for promotion to the championship!! Yeah right! Reality check Swindon. No Russians want your clubHow are the Russians wife's team talks these days? Haha what an embarrassmentNot as much as an embarrassment as Di Canio...... Biggest thing Swindon has ever seen and my god doesn't he know it!LOL we are aiming for the Championship you dimwit. He won't leave because he has just admired Di Canio in the local news.We don't have Russians, but we are still one of the richest teams in the country.STFC one of the richest clubs in the country? Good one, for a moment i thought you were serious. If you do get some money you should try sorting out that cesspit of a ground, even the rats are complaining.Swindons only a 'big club' due to di canio, as soon as he gets a better offer you'll be back looking in bins for scrapsOff topic, but Di Canio the biggest thing this club has ever seen?
Are you forgetting Ossie Ardiles and Glenn Hoddle?Haha do theese farmers think swindon is a big club or something no bigger than bournemouthYou need to do your homework lad, STFC are the 4th richest club outside of the Premier League (owners wealth)Fergie was in the paper last week claiming that 10% of the worlds 695 million population supported Manchester united. If I read on I'm guessing it would of said the other 90% support the mighty Swindon Town3 places behind BournemouthSeeing as there is over a billion people in China either you or fergie are talking rubbishOxford are far bigger than Swindon anywaysDi Canio Town FC! You lot hang off him like a sh!t wig! #lethimbreathBournemouth are a two bob club who will go the same way as pompey when the russian gets fed upSwindon are in fact in the top 30 rich list you geeks and also our stadium isnt a dump.its a lot better than most stadiums ive been to including bournemouth little diveThe dive that Bournemouth are currently bolting an £11 million hotel/stand onto and the whole park area that is getting dug up as week speak for our premier league standard multi million pound training pitches? That dive you mean?? Okaaaaaaaaay feel free to have a tour round it after we've put 6 past you next seasonOn the matter of size of club It's not the money or the gates, it's the history and achievements. I think you'll find you're lacking in most departments anyhow. Good luck to you though, gonna need it! I just hope Harry Redknapp comes back to take some more money from a rich owner and help ruin another clubYou leave our uncle Harry alone. he will have a nice office put into the new stand for when he comes home from London.20k capacity redevelopement is expected - thats easily big enough for championship fare and area the size of swindon. 15k capacity at present is none too shabby eitherIm glad Swindon are back in league 1 with AFCB, the banter is great but the 6 points will be sweeeet.


01 Jun 2012 16:02:12
Ipswich have agreed a fee with Sunderland for Kieren Westwood although the transfer will be completed after euro 2012(3)(23)Yeye wateverWhy would Sunderland leave themselves with one keeper? Theirs no way Westwood will leave. He's a great keeper to have as a reserve and can also challenge for the number 1 spot!

Watford goalkeeper Scott Loach is on Ipswich manager Paul Jewell's radar in the hunt for a goalkeeper, on top of Paul Jewell's wish list is released ex Manchester United keeper Thomas Kuszack who had a loan period at Watford last season.

Another name on Paul Jewell's radar is highly rated Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine as Paul Jewell is looking to bolster his strike force, another name who could make a possible move to Ipswich is Reading striker Simon Church.(9)(5)Got no chance with madine ipswich would be a step downIf we link enough players to us eventually we are bound to get one right! ITFCThere is one direction Wednesday are going and its not up.

However ipswich are not interested in the playerWednesday to ipswich wouldnt be a step down..! established championship side- newly promoted to championship..If all thes players come in they'll be no room for -
Jimmy Kebe
Jobi Mcanuff
Alex Pearce
Jason roberts ect.

Maybe Sanchez, Zaha, Sigurdsson and bertrand (we need a quality LB of RB more than anything else)

We dont want to waste moneyWhat? ^^

James Constable is set to move from Oxford to Bristol Rovers for 180k. With this money, Oxford are set to buy Mehdi Kerrouche from Swindon, after he impressed whilst on loan at Oxford.(16)(13)Clearly from a swindon fanConstable will go and possibly Bristol or Northampton who have shown interest today. But Kerrouche He played about 90 mins in a month in total for us and was sent back to Swindon. In fact the reverse - not impressed and wont be signed upOxford have rejected an offer from bristol rovers source skysportsI also heard that Kerrouche could be coming our way, hoping its not true, certainly not for 180kSwindon are going to do a swap deal and have Smalley.


01 Jun 2012 15:54:59
Swindon are thought to be interested in striker Katlego Mphela, a South African international. He currently plies his trade in South Africa, however his extremely impressive goalscoring record for both club and country has interested several clubs in England.(14)(4)Swindon will be very ;ucky to get a player like this while in league one! fingers crossed though!

Top targets for Burnley this summer:

Jason Shackell
Adam Clayton
Oliver Norwood
Brett Pitman

The clarets have already bid for Shackell and Clayton but the offers were rebuffed. The Lancashire outfit are thought to be returning with higher bids to attempt to secure the pair.

Howe is keen on Burnley born Norwood after the player was not offered a new deal at Man United.

Howe has worked with Pitman before at Bournemouth and stated his interest in the player in todays Burnley Express. With Rodriguez looking bound for the Premier League, Howe will look to add Pitman to a still impressive strike force of Charlie Austin, Danny Ings and Martin Paterson.(15)(5)You are not getting Shackell.One of your fans who is part of the Burnley fan organisation or whatever it is said you are not looking for a centre back as Nigel clough has set an asking of 5.5 million if you dont agree that hes worth that much
thats the whole point so it will stop interest from other clubs.He himself has already stated "I love the club,Bright future" etc.EH is not interested in Shackell, but we are after a center back.What a load of rubbish. You don't have to make stuff up because you don't want to loose him. We are after a centre back EDDIE HOWE has confirmed this.Burnley will be after a centre back, left back, right back and above all a decent keeper! 13th place finish was nothing to do with a shortage of firepower it was because the forward thinking midfield couldn't protect a pants defence!If you are going to pretend you know whats going on. Get your facts right. Olly Norwood WAS offered a new contract at united. He turned it down because he wants first team football


01 Jun 2012 15:49:20
Spurs have released Ledley King, He ha the summer to prove his fitness and if he can spurs may offer him a 1 year contract. If not he will retire and look to stay at spurs in another capacity1

i just got news from some really credible sources, this chap has got his ear really close to the ground.. the 40 million that was put a side for hazard will be redirected to nuri sahin of Real Madrid and striker lewadowski from dortmund. the two have a telepathic connection with shinji and would solve the sriker and mid field issue(5)(7)


01 Jun 2012 15:47:40
Derby County are to sign Notts County centre-back Krystian Pearce at some point next week. The fee offered is believed to be £350,000(10)(7)Its 175,000 due to injury problemsNot been injured at all, apart from one small muscle strain early season. Where did that idea come from?They turned down 500k mid season so 350k seems small. no way would it be 175k, never

Bristol City are set to complete a triple signing of Scottish players.

Templeton, Swanson and Steven Naismith are all close to agreeing contract terms with the club after initial fees had been accepted. The latter, Naismith may still have other clubs interested in late bids as he is available on a low minimum release clause due to Rangers financial woes.

The Templeton deal will involved City winger, Martyn Woolford going to Hearts, as part of the deal.(3)(19)West brom are going to bid 5 million for
Naismith and Templeton is valued at 2.8
million.Dont see Bristol city have 7.8 Million and more money to spend on rubbish rumours.

The only player that Bristol city have talked to is left back Paul Dixon and he might be your first signing if he snubs Derby CountyMartyn Woolford is shocking.What utter nonsense...Naismiths is 2mill,get your facts correct,and if he is sold it wont be to cityGlad to see Ally McCoist's joined us because he clearly knows what Rangers' transfer activity is!
you lonely sad man go back and support your own club


01 Jun 2012 15:24:59
Tottenham have released ledley king

Leebo(14)(11)Hooray, he can finally play for a good team
The only reason spurs released him is because they don't deserve himDidnt he play 30+ games this seasonHe hasn't been released, contract talks are ongoing. He made 23 appearances this season, most of them playing injured in the second half of the season after being injured in training but having to play out of necessity. If he can't prove his fitness he will retire and take up a coachin roleNo they havent..get facts right before posting he will be offered role within club

tranmere have signed ben burges
one of many to come!(11)(1)Hardly a 20 goal plus a season striker. feel a little bit disappointed with this signing. hopefully he'll prove me wrong.Season not yet started and the moaners are out. wake up and smell the coffee we cannot afford to sign the very best player advaiableHes not a 20 goalscorer per season but he will score the odd couple. Also he can hold the ball up for another player to score from. And we need another striker to score from burgess' flick ons.Happy with Burgess, he's not and never will be a prolific goalscorer, but then you don't have to be - look at Niall Quinn's career. He's a very decent target man at that level, Rovers just need a 'Kevin Phillips' to go with him now.

Reading are trying to get business done quickly as usual.

Close to signing
Yakubu 1mill from blackburn
Sigurdsson 6.8mill from hoff
Mariappa 2.5mill from watford
Gunter 3mill from nott forest
Rhodes 5mill from huddersfield
Joe Ledley £3mill from Celtic

Highly interested in (will only sign a select few)-
Sanchez free from Valenciennes
Guthrie free from Newcastle
Butterfield free from Barnsley
Zaha 7mill from Crystal Palace
Phillips 2mill from Blackpool
Martin Kelly loan from Liverpool
Ryan Bertrand loan from Chelsea
Pilkington from Norwich
Fletcher from Wolves
Kightly from Wolves
Sterling on loan from Liverpool
Carl Jenkinson on loan from Arsenal
Benik Afobe on loan from Arsenal
Henri Lansbury on loan from Arsenal
Aaron Ramsey on loan from Arsenal(5)(38)So by the sound of it Reading will have a whole new team judging by your postButterfield ain,t free mate he his under 23
and unless a fee can be agreed it will go to a tribunalDREAM ON READING!If you think that you are going to SIGN those players! A Good Dream!No way we would get ramseyYour not close to signing any of those!Butterfield ISNT free. compo is due if he leaves !!!!!Yakubu probably
Sigurdson no
Mariappa maybe
Gunter maybe
Rhodes no
Ledley no
Jenkinson probably
Ramsey no
Lansbury probably notIs it April 1st-this is reading the new Aston Villa, completely deludedButterfield is not free will be fee decided by Tribunal because of his age.Yakubu (Rhodes)

McAnuff Sigurdsson McCleary

Sanchez Ledley

Bertrand Mariappa Pearce Gunter

what a teamKightly staying at wolves n you cant afford fletchYour 'close to signing' list is quite good, but some of you loans are laughable!Butterfield not free there is a fee to pay as he is only 21Ledley for £3 million? No chance mate. Try £8 million.I WishYou Might have a rich owner but so do
Qpr dosent mean a player wants to sign for you.Aaron Ramsey is a class player despite being out of form during the last part of the season but that was due to a
consistent ankle problem which i presume will be resolved over the summer.I did hear though you might be getting Frimpong on loanWhy is it that as soon as we get money people start hating on us, I doubt we are gonna get siggy back nor Yakubu the only i can see happening is Mariappa and GunterApparently 2m has been rejected but according to watford observer this may not be the case, so hopefully there is a player involved in this deal. As a watford fan i believe michael kightly would be an absolute brilliant signing for you, we had him on load and was liturally out of this league and when he returned to wolves seemed to be one of there best players.Interested in 7 different Premier League players on loan? You did state they might only sign a select few but the limit is 2 loan signings from other Prem teams, so that list is instantly massively limited from what you've written there.

As for some of the others......not a chance.....As a Norwich fan I can't see why Pilks would want to join Reading in a million years, even with Holt and Lambert both on the verge of leaving. It'd be a backwards step for him at present.Butterfield will not go for free a fee has to be paid for him he is under 23 and i can not see him joining reading anywayNever laughed so much you will not be loaning any of the following.

Carl Jenkinson on loan from Arsenal
Benik Afobe on loan from Arsenal
Henri Lansbury on loan from Arsenal
Aaron Ramsey on loan from ArsenalLedley will b at least double that prob closer to 8 or 9Blimey!
Yakubu- yeah OK, cover for Roberts
Sigurdsson- Liverpool bound
Mariappa- this will happen
Rhodes- no more than 20% chance of coming to Reading
Gunter and Ledley - won't happen
As for the rest, this is guess workWhen were reading given unlimited amount of money? not happeningI dont know why everyone is saying no to gylfi joining, hes a reading a boy and loves reading ever since he played for them a few years agoGet this into youre head butterfield no less than 2 million tribunalAnd I thought the baggies were deluded.There will be bigger clubs..Liverpool included going after Sigurdsson, wether he loves Reading or not he would choose the bigger club."Kightly staying at wolves n you cant afford fletch"

As far as I know we aren't after fletcher but if you think we can't afford him think again.Reading r going back downButterfield may not come but don't be deluded. A Football Tribunal will insist on alot less than 2m. Go look at higher rated players & see what they've agreed.Yah, he is with Ireland right now.Reading.....yawn........why would anyone go there.........I mean ever........have you been? Let alone sign just about player that's moving this summer. Dream on fella, You are on your way back to the championship!Thats bull hes a reyt player you obviously no nowt about footballPeople writing us off before the season starts... we'll raise a few eyebrows and we have a mastermind tactician of a manager. There were no more than 2 games where I can say we were outplayed. Btw we could get afobe on loan, he was on loan to us last season you person and we could get lansbury too. Not Ramsey or Jenkinson though who are near arsenals 1st teamJennings has played 20 games in the german 3rd liga and not scored, what makes you think he can cut it in the championship, he is not good enough!Aint being funny thats bareee money for all of dem how can they afford all of them and by the way u aint getting Zaha

Reading have enquired about a Spurs player believed to be Defoe, wages are a massive stumbling block though so deal unlikely to happen.

PD(8)(14)Ledley King.You bet it won't happen. Despite recent investment, the max wage at Reading is £25,000 pw and there's only one player on that at the moment. So, likewise, forget Joe Cole.

Part of the brendan rodgers deal is that he cant sign any swans players for at least 12 months so all this rubbish about siggy going to reading or liverpool is bull he is having a medical at swansea today.(13)(17)He hasn't signed though, just because he is having a medical (if he even is) doesn't mean he's a Swansea player, he can sign for anyone he wants, and no I'm not a Reading or Liverpool fan...Siggy isn't a Swansea playerHe's on's he having a medical...and the holiday isn't in Swansea !How can this have any bearing on a Hoffenheim player? Der!You are aware that Sigurdsson is a Hoffenheim player, right?He isn't a Swansea player though is he?He was on loan u doughnut he doesnt belong to SwanseaHe can sign for Liverpool because he isn't contracted to Swansea is he? Silly boy and who's to say reading don't make a last minute offer, anything can happen dudeSo, he'll be going to reading ties to swansea only went there because of rodgers and the type of football they play (which will be down the drain now)Funny that. How can he be having a medical when he is on holiday!Siggy will come 2 reading againExcuse the lack of technical language but... Hoff are miffed at Swansea for announcing sig as a 'done deal' - therefore transfer to Swansea less likely further problems arising from the departure of BRNothing has been signed a fee has been agreed but I bet aswell as the other good players such as Sinclair that now Rodgers has gone they have lost their edge and could become Relegation favourites.Sinclair by the way is going to
Newcastle,Liverpool or Aston villa.Most likely Newcastle in for the Aging Jonas after Adam Johnsons Wages proved a Stumbling blockHe said: "We have agreed a fee and personal terms but the problem is he has gone away to Europe on holiday and that has delayed the finalising of it.

"We are hopeful of getting things moving next week, hopefully we can tie that up and get one or two things finished off." Looks most likely sigurdsson will sign for the swansThe football we played wasnt down to rodgers, martinez started it off just sayingWhy does everybody say our style will go down the drain then? You clearly have no clue as we've had a succession of three managers (Martinez, Sousa, and Rodgers) it's was the boards and Martinez decision to change the philosophy of the football club why would we change that just because we've lost, admittedly a great, manage? That would be suicide the board will continue to look for managers with philosophy and style that will fit the way we play and the football club is runLook, get your facts straight before you make up rubbish. He agreed terms, but he didnt sign. He isnt going to sign either as the reason he wanted to join was because of Brendan Rodgers.You dont know any thing about football rodgers didnt start the passing game it was martinez and when we get our new manager he will have to get used to it because swansea wont chnage their game planHes not contracted to swansea, liverpool and reading can sign him if they wish he is an HOFFENHEIM player, my god Swansea fans lack common senseDont worry rodgers wont be at liverpool in 12 months lol.To the above comment...... SCFC have been playing their brand of football for the past 5 years. All that's changed is the managers who have implemented their own ideas around the Swansea style of play. Huw Jenkins hasn't disappointed in manager selections so I wouldn't expect him to disappoint this time around.If he doesnt sign for Swansea he will sign for Liverpool.Rodgers has told Gylfi to sign for the Swans, meaning he will not intervene in the transfer. But that does not mean he will not sign for liverpool, as if he pulls out then hes LiverpoolsMost ov you guys dont now nouthing gilfy wants to play football if your hoffinhim fan you dont have a clue he hates you club said it since day one the main reason for him wantinf to sign for the swans was the fans and the area plus rodgers told him to join swansea for his development and not to join the likes ov pool and others plus his girlfriend doesent want to leave swansea rodgers would be a hypoctite to sign him yes fee and personall terms been agreed but anything can happen in foot ball one things for sure he wont be at hoffinhim next yearHow do you all know Siggy's true feelings ? He may love Swansea, he may love Rodgers no one knows except him how he truly feels and I'm sure he wouldn't be contemplating signing for Swansea if he didn't want to.Yes he wanted to sign for Brendan Rodgers' Swansea not some coach from Wigan's Swansea.

Tomasz Kuszczak about to sign for
Watford FC...He loved his few months there on loan and wife is happy to move to Berkhamstead
Also been guaranteed No 1 position for
3 years. Loach will look to leave(12)(8)He isn't married and opened a new sushi bar in Macclesfield about 2 months ago.Not married but they have just had a kid together
WOULD LOVE THIS TO BE TRUENot sure this is true although we are looking to offload loach to ipswich, we apprently are interested in ben amos.Heck, Kuszczak would have to take a heck of a wage cut to go to Watford. Apparently he's actually off to Ipswich instead.

stoke city have had a bid of 2.7m excepted for derbys john brayford .
and lukaku is willing come stoke on loan to hook up with his close mate Florent Cuvelier
who hes on holiday with at the moment(10)(8)Hope Lukaku gets back in time for Belgium's game v England tomorrow :-) Could have swore I just saw him on TV training.......odd holidayWill be a great signing, just a left back and a couple of wingers needed now.Any Proof? Because We Have No Need To Sell Players As The Club Has Stated Many Times And Were Selling Alot Of Players As It Is...Most players take a break from there hols for a few days training as Belgium aren't even in the eurosSo Lukaku is going to come to Stoke to go out on loan to the Championship as that's where Cuvelier will be going unfortunately.Lukaka didn't. Look that great in the game today.


01 Jun 2012 13:44:27
As Paul Lambert will be installed as the new manager of Aston Villa he has been promised funds. These were conditions on taking the job. His first move will be for Grant Holt and alot of ins and outs will take place.

James Collins - Sunderland
Warnock - West Ham
Hutton - Reading

Grant Holt - Norwich
Scott Dann - Blackburn
Junior Hoilett - Free
Nigel Reo Coker - Free
Diame - Wigan
Jermaine Jenas - Spurs(5)(20)Don't want Hutton at Reading...we are looking for decent players.....and Huttons definitely not that !None of that list of players in will meet Mr Lamberts requirements. young hungry and wanting to prove a pointWhy would Reo-Coker return to the club who were so willing to let him warm the subs bench for a few years?All of these players are too good for villaDo not want Hutton possibly the worst and dirtiest defender in the leagueHoilett will NOT be free!Hoilett is free, however he will join a bigger club than villa, also sunderland don't want collinsVilla fans are yet to learn anything about Lambert. I would even be shocked if he were to sign Holt back.I feel for Norwich and Swansea, had an impressive first season impact in the prem, but then their managers leave them for bigger clubs? (the irony being Villa finished below both Norwich and Swansea) But both clubs are hardly safe going into a second season where so many newly promoted clubs tend to struggle.. I'd feel pretty betrayed.Holt won't be leavingHow do you know sunderland dont want collins?The first comment is a typical newly promoted team fan, Hutton is better than all your team, from a SAFC fanIf u think lambert will be signing defoe and reo coker you really hav no idea what sort of manager you are gettingSorry meant Jenas and Reo Coker :-)Hoilett is not free! goes to a tribunal if teams cant agree a fee due to his young age!Hutton would walk into ur team he didn't get a 9mil move to spurs for nothin wake up new boys or u will be heading straight back to the championshipHoilett is out of contract but will not be a FREE, due to the Bosman ruling Blackburn can accept around 5 millionHutton is overrated I think, but he'd probably get in our team

01 Jun 2012 13:31:12
Well well well Norwich City fans it looks like I was right about Mr Lambert. Grant Holt will join PL too.(10)(7)Only if NCFC say so my friend. Holt is under contract and will only be allowed to leave if the price is right. £6m should do it.Grant holt has another 2 years to run on his contract and wont be going anywhere until we get what a 17 goal striker is worth . plus paul lambert will cost villa .Villa... I m honestly shocked that PL has gone to your faltering debt ridden team of the past. Worst career move ever. You are an unforgiving set of fans and will no doubt give him a hard time should he lose a couple. If you give us a few mill for Holt too then great. He deserves one big contract before he reaches the end of his career and has been a great servant of NCFC while he was here. Good business when he has had a good season. Even PL will struggle to get results out of your bloated dressing room though so don't get too smug yet.

Dany N'Guessan to sign for Middlesbrough for £500K.(7)(3)Any boro news


01 Jun 2012 13:26:04
Middlesbrough to clinch signing of Dany N'Guessen from Millwall for £500K.(8)(6)Goodbye we hope!Please, please let this be trueIs he rubbish ?From what little i saw of him at leicester he is big powerfull forward quite direct but effective, not given a chance really with us, a bit like the rest of our 'big' buys he'll be reetHe was rubbish at Millwall... Literally.
Maybe he wasn't given a chance, but always seemed a lazy lump whenever he started or came on as sub.
I hope he leaves.At Charlton (on loan) he made 6 starts and got 4 goals. I felt that he was playing for a contract, once he got one
he would not be as good but, that's just my opinion. When he joined us he was not match fit, having not played much all season. He did say when he joined us that he had not been given a chance at Millwall.If N'Guessen is a powerful striker what's jutkiewicz for??He's a good player at league one level but at championship he's ok i guess but hes strong on the ball and has a bit of pace on him, also wins headers a lot.


01 Jun 2012 13:24:03
Brendan rodgers an admirer of fulham midfield wizard Moussa Dembele. He's ready to offer joe cole + 5 million for him.

Fulham also interested in Niko Kranjcar(4)(18)Haha, Joe Cole is on £90k a week! There's no way we could afford his wages. {Ed001's Note - he's not. That amount includes his signing bonus spread throughout his contract. He is on about 75k a week.}If Dembele goes anywhere in the UK it will be to a top 4 side - Arsenal possible, Manc Utd maybe - Liverpool not a prayerFulham salary cap is less than 50k

West Brom speaking to Chelsea about the possible loan of Romelu Lukaku and one other squad player for next season(15)(7)He's all ready on his way to Stoke pal so it will be a pointless loan attempt!Not a chance you need to sort out a manager first

According to the South London Press, Charlton are looking at signing West Brom's out-of-contract midfielder Keith Andrews, although they could lose out to Celtic who are already speaking to him and can offer Champions League football.(8)(9)Champions league football qualifiers mate and they have no chance RANGERS FANKEITH ANDREWS is currently at Hillsborugh talking to Dave JonesNo he isn't talking to Wednesday!Yes but the Championship is a higher level than the SPL and Celtic won't quality for the champions league.

I can SCP persuading him to come to the Valley.^^ No he is not!He's on international duty..Actually he is on his holidays, so no he is not at any of those places.Championship is not better than the SPL. The SPL has poor sides, yes, but Celtic are strong than a lot of EPL teams. Hooper walked it in the Championship with a side that got relegated and score more goals than Andy Carroll. Lmao!

Hooper will not be gogin anywhere and neither will Ledley. Celtic are not in a position where they need to sell players. The only way they'll sell is if they get huge offers. The only first team player I see being sold would be Ki. He's surplus to requirements right now.

I also suggest that you read up on what teams Celtic have to play to qualify for the CL. We'll get through no problem. We beat beat Rennes and drew with Udinese twice in the Europa League last season and they're higher quality opposition. We were robbed against Udinese at home but such is life. Worth mentioning that Udinese completely out-played Arsenal last season as well.

So, stop being ignorant. Your EPL isn't as good as you think..."Champions League football." Four games at most!If Septic were in the Championship they would struggle FACT!You said it your self now rangers have gone bankrupt it has become a one team league. BORING! If you put any championship team in there even league one then they would be challenging Celtic at the.Wait, a player who was a success in a relegated English Championship team going the Celtic means that the EPL isn't as good as we think?

Enjoy picking off weak players and being mega excited that they are a success in a poor league. Celtic are a mud-table Championship side at bestStoke finished behind Albion last season so why would he join a smaller club?Let's be honest , Celtic are MADE to look good from the awful teams in their league!Haha we will just see if celtic dont get into the cl then. Considering we are seeded for both qualifiers meaning we could draw against teams such as linfield.. So let me correct you celtic will get into the clMaybe they will, but they will be out just as quick,they would struggle in our championship,never mind premier


01 Jun 2012 12:38:13
West brom to sign Ben foster , matt jarvis and blackburns Olson as replacements for Jonas Olson and graham Dorrans. Also looking into snapping up grant holt for a fee of around 7.7 million to replace odemwingie who is off to stoke for a fee of 5million(5)(23)Matt jarvis has to much intrest from bigger clubs...and same for olson from blackburn ..and the same for grant holt i cant see the baggies pulling off any of these even more so with out a manager ..ii can see odemwingie going stoke thoHolt for 7.7Million? Nobody would pay that much for him.So managerless West Brom are signing these players?2 mil tops for holt, still too much
foster isnt going to wba, brum wont let him sign permanently for themWhy does everyone insist WBA will not buy without a manager. The set up at the club is very different and the TD is heavily involved in player ins and outs. Must admit, however, that the club are too slow when it comes to buying players and they end up missing out - Ben Foster may be a prime example.Why would odemwingie want to leave for stoke when he has already said that he wants to leave to a club who are challenging for trophies. stoke are no where near winning trophies there a poor team who only know how to play long ball. so even if odemwingie did join them he would not fit there style of play.Ahhhh, Stoke we're with Man U and Man C in the Europa i.e challenging, and met Man C in last years cup final, ? ahh "not challening for trophies"?? a stronger attack will suffice and please, please all this "stoke only do the long ball, rugby stuff" is irrelevant, they are still in the premiere league and played a load of games outside the league, i.e. were challenging for trophies. nuf said, maybe a load of envy for such a so called poor side.Haha stoke got in the Europa league cause they lost the cup, then apsolutely failed in europe this year and every other cup including the prem.So stoke making it to the last 32 in europe and not lossing to the top 6 teams at home in the league is a fail get real( and i am guess u support one of the big four team)Last 32 of Europa league, quarter finals of carling and fa cup, never in danger of relegation. Not a bad season for Stoke really. Certainly better than most teams outside of the top 6Stoke are a terrible team deserve to go down the way they play. They just encourage kids to play long ball. Maybe they should take a leaf out of the might WBA book and actually pass the ball not just hit and hope. Oh and Stoke will never ever win any of the domestic or European cups angain in my lifetime And I am 14I think we guessed you were 14.Stoke City one trophy in nearly 140 years, also ransWest brom we always beat west brom! Well usually.

Arsenal prepared to let both kosicelny and jenkinson (dissapointing this year) to try and get dortumunds neven subotic and manchester city's out of favour boyata(3)(21)How has Kosicenly disappointed?Are you stupid? Koscielny has had a great year!Koscielny! Been poor? He's been our best defender this season. Jenks is still young, and considering he couldn't even break into a league 1 team last year, I think he's been brilliant.

Ben X.Rubbish. Kosicelny had a solid season, was one of the better defensive players. Jenkinson is young and going nowhere. Why do you feel the need to make up lies and post them?What Koscielny have you been watching? He's been great all season and scored the goal that got us into the champions league with an aerial back-heel.Koscielny who was our best player this season behind Van Persie? Really?Kosecilney was great this year...


01 Jun 2012 12:33:47
Southampton should know tonight if they will sign jay rodriguez after it is rumoured that there will be a deadline for personal terms.(14)(8)Weve told you Jay Rodriguez 'he's one of our own' .. would only move to an established club such as Everton/VillaVilla are just as precarious as southampton and everton have to sell to buy. Jay rod will only not come if he wants to earn more than lambert who will remain the top earner at the clubHe wont be "One of your own" for much longer! Saints deal is close, Burnley fans need to let goDoubt it, he's not back from Mexico until next week and Southampton want to sign him, so why would they be unhelpful and put a rash, urgent deadline for Rodriguez to stick to?

This transfer has been 12months in the making, we won't rush now. And it's not like lots of offers of £7million are going to come in over the weekend. And we fail to sign him, we still have the entirety of the transfer window to sign someone elseStop lying mateThe deadline was put in place to stop Jay's agent stringing us along whilst he whores him out to Villa and Newcastle.

If he hasn't made a decision by tonight, Saints will turn their attention elsewhere.

Cortese won't be taken for a ride.They would not put a deadline on personal terms when hes on holiday! hes back next week.To the person who said saints were not an established team - we have been about since 1885 and we were one of the original premier league teams. I am sick of all these posts treating saints like the new boys. Let's remember that just because we spent a few seasons out of the top league we are beginners. I can think of a team that went down to league 1 in recent times and are now prem champions. Anything is possible.We need a keeper and in my view Foster is the 2nd best English keeper, he'd be in the Euro squad if he wouldnt have retired... I cant see him being available - but he'd be a great signing if we could sign him..Foster was only on loan at West Brom from Birmingham, and as Birmingham didn't come up they might want to get rid of him. Also, with Hodgson having left West Brom he might not be wanted by any new manager. Would be a quality signing in my view

Blackburn looking to sign rangers steve Davis for 500,000 they will follow this up with other championship standard players to ensure they don't go into free fall(3)(3)Steve davis the snooker player? thats about right for blackburn lollolololIts been confirmed his minimum release clause is 1.65 millionSteve davis championship standerd DO watch more footballSo you are saying they are happy to stay in championship,or are you a celtic fan talking crap.

Talks between Alex Bruce and Cheltenham Town have broken down due to the defenders high wage demands.
Yates had earmarked the ex-Leeds defender as his main target, stating the ambition of the club that narrowly missed out on promotion.
Yates is also thought to be in talks with Izale McLeod whilst a lot of talk has picked up about Yates taking Nathaniel Jarvis on loan from Cardiff.
The 20-year old spent time on loan at Newport County last season netting 6 goals in a total of 31 appearances.(0)(9)

according to sky sports neil lennon is being lined up and sky sports said that malkey will have a smaller budget at norwich than cardiff will if the new cardiff kit proposal ges through(8)(9)Irrelevant, Norwich have a better team in most positions and it would take most of Cardiff's budget to get up to that standardFor one, I doubt Norwich will have a smaller budget, but even if they did, doesn't take away the fact that it's championship vs Premier league.Yea relegation battle vs promotion battleI think Steve bruce will go to norwich because he free right now and they will not have to pay a release clause for him unlike malkey mackayNorwich's team is not that much better than cardiff the only reason for the difference is paul lambert who is not there anymoreYou say that like its fact. its an opinion and as far as i remember Lambert wasnt strapping his boots on last season. club is always bigger than the manager. PLUS are you saying Malkay isnt good enough to get the same results with the same squad? oh well mayb its best he stays put


01 Jun 2012 12:10:54
Gary Warren of Newport county is again a target of Mark Yates.
Cheltenham recently lost the race for 25-year old Irish striker Sam Foley who was Warrens team-mate for the past 2 seasons.
Warren was the subject of a failed bid from The Rubies last season, but with The Exiles narrowly avoiding relegation it is thought that the Newport captain would accept the move this term.(1)(1)

all the PNE fans talking complete BS about roberts, bostwick and wilson. no stevenage player is being sold unless 'crazy money' is offered. Lairs, the mouse and byrom all declined new contratcs(5)(0)Its not pne fans that are saying this stuffCompletely agree with you mate.Cant blame players for jumping ship at small time Stevenage to join a club with an ambition to win the leagueWell, if they want to jump ship, so be it. Pne may have history. But stevenage is an ambitious club with with fans with heart. If they can keep a good amount of players of the original squad and add good quality. Then we be fighting for the L1 title.How can you say we are small time back to back promotions and then made the playoffs?

what have you done over the last two years? almost got relegated twice fantastic good job big time lolPNE will be lucky to get the same crowd as Stevenage next season as they have lost over 60% of season ticket holders....part time fans waiting for matches where PNE charge just £1 to get people through the doorsPne would get a better attendence than stevenage even if they were in the conference you average 4k for goodness sake.

Huddersfield Town are expected to announce the signing of Kyle Lafferty from Glasgow Rangers today. Active clauses of 575k has been met to secure his release.
Dale Jennings is also in talks ( just been released by Bayern Munich).
Greg Halford is also another probabable arrivee next week -out of contract available on a free.
One other out of contract name to be targeted is rumoured to be Ferrie Bodde formally of Swansea City.(7)(13)Ferrie Bodde is still under contract with Swansea and has not played for Swansea for at least three years due to serious knee injuries. He is still awaiting news on his latest injury as to whether he needs surgery etc. Don't think he will be playing for some time so dream on for that one.Where gave you heard this?Lafferty gets married todayBodde has officially released by Swansea today, he's available on a free transferJennings has not been released by BMLafferty replacing rhodes who's on his way to readingFerrie has today been released by Swansea according to the sky sports website, I'm a swans fan and was a huge fan of him up until his injury problems, he's a great player but in all honesty he'd be lucky to play again after all his injuries .Rhodes isn't going to reading. Why would he when he want first team football which he won't definitely get in the prem?If they got Halford when we was at the blades he was an ideal pplayer in the championship


01 Jun 2012 11:56:01
Nigel Adkins is interested in signing young, British talent hungry to prove themselves in the top flight. Interesting its British and not English, maybe suggesting he's currently in for a Scot/Welshman.

J Rod is almost done I hear
Once is talked about but perhaps Adkins wants Scotland internationally matt Phillips?
Alex Smithies is someone I want to see at the club, ling term Davis replacement and cup keeper.
Perhaps dorrans (Scottish) or Davis ( n Irish) of rangers, both good players.
A centre back and right back would then be enough, preferably the centre back to have premier league experience.(9)(5)Must be Gareth Bale-Welsh!We will sign ince/phillips for sure with punch going the other way as a sweetener. A bigish signing from the continent is required still as every year cortese has signed one from his contacts- N'diaye , guly then de ridder. Love to get Honda to play with lee but thats a tad ambitious. Maybe Kjaer as he was on lona at roma but they dont seem to want him? Id love us to slap 5 mill for butland as I see him challenging Hart for the number 1 jersey in 3-4 years. for purely entertainment i would love to get frimpong in when hes back from injury !

Middlesbrough captain Matthew Bates is being looked at by Wolves and Wigan for around 1 million.(6)(7)This is bull, here is why..

He was injured from the end of march, with a serious knee injury, effectively ruling him out for 6 months, no club is going to bid on a player with an injury like that.His contract is up and he is undergoing treatment after doing his cruciate for the 5th time.Why would anyone buy an injured player?

Ben X.If hes going anywhere he's going on a pay as u play plus he's out of contract and injured why would Wigan want him. Quality player injured too oftenBecause its Middlesbrough the manager signs players of they're injured all the time.Wolves bought Hunt while he was long term injured.I doubt we are in for bates though.

From reliable Arsenal source- Arsenal are only likely to spend 8 million on top of what they sell- inside info(4)(13)

Oxford United are interested in Ronnie Henry, Jon Shaw, and Ben Strevens. Shaw is their preference but face strong competition for his signature from around 6/7 clubs including Luton, York, Hartlepool, Northampton and Fleetwood.

Oxford are thought to be willing to sell star striker James Constable, but Constable is happy at Oxford and is not keen to leave to the club.

Adam Chapman could be on his way out of Oxford United. Shrewsbury Town are interested in him, and have offered a better deal, but Chapman is happy at the Kassam Stadium, so still has a tough decision to make. Oxford are unlikely to improve their offer though.

Other players on Oxford's radar are midfielders Matt Oakley and Michael Flynn.(4)(4)Constable is not happy at Oxford not after the way the oxford fans treated him after the club game him permission to talk to swindon in the january window as he received threats from oxford fans and his game went down hill until the end of the season. He will go to Rovers or Northampton during the summer and expect a few other departures. Oxford seem to be happy as a L2 team with no ambition to go higher as they havent got the funds. Crowds will reduce this season as the fans dont see Wilder as the manager to take them forward. After all the stick they gave Swindon fans about appointing Paolo and saying he was going to fail well who's laughing now Oxford fans.
Mediocre season for you Yellows next season.The Swindon fan above is lies. If you read Constable's tweets and if you have a brain (hard for a scummer) it clearly shows he loves the club. Hence the reason why he put he has no plans for leaving.. Hardly ambitious for him if he is joining another league 2 club. Should make sure your rumours are 100% correct.. Instead of making it up for fun.Why lie? Constable is very happy at Oxford!!Nice to know how obsessed Swindon fans are with us! Thanks for the breathtaking rumoursIts really hard to see why Swindon Fans have so much interest in us. Get over it, Beano did not want to sign for you, full stop. He was not a target of abuse or threats by fans, in fact the opposite. Its really good to hear you have an interest in our funds - I'd be very conscious of your funds and at any time your sugar daddy's could pull the plug. We dont have that luxury, thank goodness. We cannot afford big wages or big fee's but we also manage our money. The cap comes in next year - ooops! Could be painful for your lot. COME ON YOU YELLOWSSince when have rumours got to 100% correct there would hardly be a site if that was the case numpty!


01 Jun 2012 11:12:50
sol bamba off to trapazoner turkey 800k(9)(2)Thats a real shame, lets all remember those heart in mouth moments when he dribbled his way off our goal line instead of finding row z! sol is a legend be sad if he went, played footie with a smile on his face, a scots accent in his mouth and a ball 'sometimes' attached to his foot/head happy days


01 Jun 2012 11:12:47
Talk on Twitter of Southampton being interested in Ben Foster, it would be a great move
if it is true.(16)(7)From who.. you know any one to follow for good rumoursNot really he is very inconsiestantThe talk is true, he would be a bloody good signing for us if it comes true, but davis can cut it in the prem if im honestCan't believe people are knocking Foster?! Did you actually watch any prem football last season? He had a couple of ropey seasons in the past but he is England's No.2 if he hadn't retired. Great keeper last season. He'd be a great signing but I can't see him leaving Baggies to join us.

Grant Holt has expressed his desire to leave Norwich City due to disagreements.

Source Grant Holt official twitter @holty30

His tweets are as follows

"Just to stop the rumour mill again. I have expressed to the board and the CEO that I want to leave the football club. Due to disagreements"

Followed by

"I have loved my 3 years at the club and it sadness me to right this but want use to here it from me first. #lovedmytime"

I think a few strikers/wingers we should look at are

Jordan Rhodes
Gary Hooper
Scott Sinclair

But lets get our new manager sorted first Celtic will reject any approach that Norwich make for Neil Lennon.(7)(5)That's a non-starter anyway, Lennon will not leave Celtic. Doubt he ever would leave willinglyGet a grip none of those players would look at your club lol!!!!!! Championship football next year!!!!No way hooper would go to norwichNorwich will never get any of those 3!Can't see Norwich getting any of them either. Will struggle to stay up next season for sureRhodes - No chance

Hooper Sinclair - Maybe

Not a lot of money in the pot though, so maybe Heskey on a free?We were favourites to go down last season... Don't write us offRhodes - Big price tag.

Sinclair - Sideways/Downwards move. Will go to Liverpool to join up with Rodgers.

Hooper - Massive price tag. Southampton had £8m rejected. Norwich not prepared to pay over £5m for a player as they bid to clear debts.People are very disillusioned about Norwich right now. Norwich have been given an est 20 for the transfer window. Both Lambert and the Norwich board have stated his leaving is nothing to do with a lack of transfer budgets. lets keep the end of season predictions to ourselves before christmas, same thing happened last year and everyone looked a little sillyLet's hope he can correct his "writing" skills before he signs a new contract.


01 Jun 2012 11:06:07
Southampton FC:

Nigel Adkins has been working on a deal to bring Damien Duff to St Marys on a free from Fulham(6)(15)Nope, not true.Well he's going to struggle, because he's not out of contract.Whats bad about daien duff i know weir not getting him but could solve our right wing problem


01 Jun 2012 11:04:48
Time to sweat saints fans as Paul Lambert is a massive fan of Jay Rod.(6)(13)Time to sweat haha, done be stupid Nigel Adkins has been trying to get him since last summerWe only want players who have the same desire for the club to succeed as we do. If he doesn't want to come here we will get someone else........and who says Villa have loads of money anyway.Villa would be a better destination for Jay RodJay Rod would be better off joining Saints! They will help with his development more. However I dont see why "Its time to sweat Saints fans"....If he joins great, if he doesnt they will move onto the next target. Saints fans wont lose any sleep over it...Stupid comment.With a £7 mill price tag, that won't phase villaOld saying plenty more fish in the sea if he chooses to go else where if his hearts not there for the saints and 7 million a lot of money to spend on someone unproven but hey saints premiership club and a few people on here a bit jealous


01 Jun 2012 10:55:22
Reading after Martin Kelly from Liverpool and pilkington from norwich(8)(16)Both first team players and have at least 2 years on contract and would take double their transfer market to even tempt their clubs.Especially Kelly who is
an england International,Loves and supports Liverpool and is young.Whether you do have a rich owner now.You can pay all the money world for a player buts its whether they want to leave aswellRight like Pilkington would leave us to go to Reading utter rubbish why would he leave to go to a smaller newly promoted club.because you've lost your manager, your top scorer ...and you are going dooooowwwwnnnnn next season..!Pilks is going nowhereGood, give us the motivation, make us the underdogs, we will prove you wrong again and again, we will stay up, we will improve and you will again look less than intelligent when it comes to footballMartin Kelly is going to be a loan deal. Pilkington wont be leaving Norwich because despite us being significantly richer than Norwich, it is still a sidewards step. I hope Norwich stay up next season, but dont go hating on Reading cause we have alot of money now.... Jealousy is pathetic.Reading more likely to go down than Norwich I'm afraid, and you won't take Kelly.Not hating Reading because of being rich, hating teams that get players by paying too much which forces other teams to raise their wages to compete resulting in higher ticket prices and massive debtsWe might have wealth, but we've vowed that we wont be spending unsustainably and we wont break our wage structure so we probably wont sign anyone demanding over 30k a week. But I can see us making a few big transfer fee signings perhaps upto 6-7 million on young and hungry players who we can sell on for massive profits


01 Jun 2012 10:49:35
BURTON to sign callum belford in exchange for jimmy philips and take atkins and collister on trial to sort the 2 gk positioning(2)(5)He's called cameron!They won take Atkins on trial..A) cause he played all last season B) he's contracted with Derby still and they want him to play games.

Reading monitoring the situation of out of favor Juventus winger Milos Krasic. Liverpool also interested(8)(17)I think Reading have over taken Leeds and Southampton as the most ridiculous fans on here. Why on earth would Krasic sign for Reading!?Won't go to you're tiny club readingNot. A. Chance.Not a chance!I'm a reading fan even I laughed at this one … there getting worse


01 Jun 2012 10:37:50
Tony Pulis at Stoke City, has been told to shore up his ageing squad. Some of Stokes older players will be moved on or released, and fresh young talent will be introduced so Pulis can get a solid base of players for coming seasons.


Matt Jarvis- Wolves (bid is imminent)

Stephen N'Zonzi - Blackburn (price needs to be lowered)

Jermain Defoe - Spurs (Pulis knows him and Crouch have played together for seasons, and scored many between them, it's a case of tried and tested for Pulis here)

Hugo Rodellega - Wigan (Pulis has always paid interest into the striker, and sees him as the ideal replacement to Fuller)(9)(9)Matt Jarvis looks nailed on to come, however Wolves won't budge from the £10M they want Stoke will offer £7.5M at most! Also Defoe looks like another one your right with here, have heard Asamoah Gyan's name thrown around a few timesCan't see defoe and rodellega coming (if any) as it would mean 1 of them would be a bench warmer and I really can't see either willing to do that and Pulis would never EVER play 4-3-3. Also think Jarvis will be coming later rather than earlier in the window as it still seems the price issue is at loggerheads. Just my opinion.I hope what you say is trueJarvis is not nailed on n wolves want business done early so we can get players inCan only see jarvis leaving for anything under 10 million if a transfer request is handed in, 7.5 million is wishful thinking...Jarvis and Defoe? Do me a favour. They are too small for Stoke and would not want to spend the season chasing long balls and looking up into the air all the time. Why is it that Pulis is never linked with any of the managerial vacancies I wonder?I can see the Jarvis deal being done on deadline day. Most deals are done on then because thats when most players are available at cheeper prices. No way is Jarvis worth 10 million and Stoke should definatly not pay that, he's worth about 6 million max.Wolves will not sell for that£10 million for Jarvis? I think not. He'll be at Stoke in the next few weeks for no more than £6 million. He will want to stay in the premier league and go to a bigger club than wolves. :-)~If he is looking for a bigger club than Wolves then that certainly aint Stoke, see above one trophy in how many years.The only cups in the potteries are the ones they make themselvesIf i can remember correctly pulis was offered the wales job and turned it down to stay at stoke because of what the club have done for him and plus if pulis went to a big team with big player they would win every cup going becasue teams would be out powered in evey sence


01 Jun 2012 10:28:30
Ferry going to Sheffield United.
Also there interested in caddis,is only a rumour yet could be possible(7)(6)Sheffield united after dave kitsonCaddis just signed a new contract and they all want to play for Paolo.

Second season syndrone under Danny Wilson will see Sheff Utd have a non existent season. He's done it at every club he's been at and expect the same Sheff utd fans.

No way will Caddis go there and i expect Ferry to stay as well.Incorrect, it's a myth that his 2nd season is full of fail.

Freddy Eastwood to Scunthorpe United - Tweeted the other day that he has been in Scunthorpe.(10)(7)

Bury FC have been given the green light to discuss a transfer of Burton Striker Marc Newsham.

Bury face competition from Rotherham,Crewe, and Scunthorpe for the highly regarded poacher.

Jason Lee is said to prefer a more long ball fashion this term which will not suit young (25) Newsham.

A fee of 40k is being mentioned with add ons.(3)(5)Boston, not BurtonDon't you mean Boston?He's from boston and he has just agreed a new contractHe is ex Rotherham and there is no way Rotherham would be interested in having him back. Rotherham`s main forward target still remains as Matt Tubbs.Apologies.
I posted the text as i received it.
I have never heard of the player.


01 Jun 2012 10:03:49
Albert Adomah is in talks with Southampton
following a 2 million + a further 800,000
in add ons.(14)(17)City want 3 million for him!Most would disagree with me but this would be a good signing if we couldn't get ince from blackpoolAnother skate making up rumours i pressume lolThats quite exciting,hes a good young player we could realisticaly sign. Not for 2mill thoughI'd rather my fat lazy ass playing for saints than that useless mercenaryBristol City's best player over the two matches they played us. And they beat us on both counts.

Wouldn't say no, but would be concerned about making the step up to the prem, he's not that young (24 I think?) and not exactly a regular international (couple of caps for Ghana). I'd be tempted if we could get him cheap, maybe £2million plus an extra 0.5mill if we stay up.Admoah is quality he ripped fox down st marys i would take him but only for 2 million none of that add onsWho didnt? home and awayAdomah or Lallana it ain't difficult Lallana is so much betterMate, it's not a question of "Adomah or Lallana"... we can't rely on Lallana to play every minute, we need squad depth and players who will step up.


01 Jun 2012 10:00:37
DavId Whelan of Wigan Athletic is in talks with Bury FC regarding their development squads availability over half and season long periods.

Martinez has vowed his commitment but understands they need to develop players for the future.
Martinez has Targetted Garry Flitcroft as the man to replace Jones if the welshman joins swansea as expected.

Bury have recently reformed their development program and would be open to Wigan offering returning injured players into their matchday squads.

If this does not happen this season, expect the discussions to contiune.(5)(1)Greame jones is from Newcastle, not Wales :)If this were true big mouth media star Whelan would already have told you. He just can't keep a secretApologies again.
I posted this from a message i received.
I shall check the finer detail before future posts.
Garry Flitcroft is interesting clubs as an assistant.


01 Jun 2012 09:58:44
Greame Jones favourite and likely to be new Swansea manager, a relief for us Blackpool fans!(10)(3)And brighton fansSorry guys but rumours are jones has rejects the offer

01 Jun 2012 09:49:54
Rukavytsya to Reading for undisclosed fee(5)(7)You won't get any decent players just a little clubIs this why we got promotion as Champions then when we have got no decent players? We are a club on the up ... we will be in Europe in three years time.Just a little club.. amazed how hated a well run club has become just because it's got new moneyWell I think he'd rather be playing in the Premiership than in the Bundesliga 2 with HerthaEurope in 3 years time? Doubt itvery much, what bugs me is how big headed Reading fans are, especially after this takeover.Reading are the smallest club ever to be in the prem even Wigan and fulham are bigger WBA loyalLoool wigan are not bigger! not big headed just optimistic..your be the ones crying when small little reading beat you next season..URZWBA is smaller than ReadingSmall club coming from wba fan crap gruond and little money Reading r a much bigger club alreadySo we have a manager in the top 10 in england, a whole load of new money and our east stand is going to have the most capacity for a single stand in the whole of europe, real small club isnt it??As I Reding fan I agree. The recent takeover has gone to a few heads. Reading will not spend more than 4-5 million on a player. Neither will they spend more than 25-30k a week at a push. Just because we have rich backing doesnt mean the clubs ethos will change over night. Free signings will be Readings plan meaning they can pay more on salaries.Right so if Reading are the smallest club in the Premiership. How come are stadium isnt the smallest ?? Also, our stadium will hold more than White Hart Lane provided we survive this season. We are in a large catchment area with no significant rivals. The economical state of Reading is on the up and with the new owners now in we are richer than the majority of clubs in the EPL... The fact that we have done little in the past means nothing, its the past for a reason. Aren't Leeds supposedly a big club, but look at them. The fact that you hate on Reading is pathetic people. Grow up, get a pair of balls and get on with supporting your own teams which im guessing are going nowhere in the future due to lack of ambition, lack of funds and a lack of decent football loving fans.Not optimistic...Its big headedness from some Reading fans, thinking now you have all this new money you will sign all these unrealistic players with ease....Thing is majority of that money is assets and businesses, your not going to have millions and millions spent on buying players.. Need to get realI like how many people are hating on Reading for being optimistic. Don't try and act like this sort of thing doesn't happen. Stoke were a championship side only 4 years ago, yet no-one would call someone crazy for thinking they could get into Europe next season. What you're also forgetting is that Reading were only a point short of getting into Europe in their debut season 5 years ago, WITHOUT any excessive signings or cash injections. Looking very much forward to see critics silenced next season by Reading.I wouldnt say optimistic, the players Reading fans are saying they are going to sign is ridiculous!


01 Jun 2012 09:49:39
John Brayford is said to Pleased that
he is getting Noticed by Big Clubs
such as Stoke and Aston Villa.
But He is Commited to Derby County.(11)(4)Would love to see Brayford at Stoke. However much respect if he does stay loyal to his contract if prem teams come knockin, especially Stoke who he supports. Bigger wage (I suspect) and playing for the team you support? It'd be hard to turn down.If stoke city do get into offering him a contract he is likely to accept as he is a bit of a stoke fanI must have missed that. When did Stoke become a big club?When they became an established premiership team while Derby struggled in the championship


01 Jun 2012 09:48:07
Derby County Had Made a Cheeky
Enquiry about Evertons Shane Duffy.
As Many are Aware of Everton's
Having to sell before you can Buy
Policy.I dont whether they will accept
or Not.

But the reason I told you this is
Becuase when they recieved the
Enquiry David Moyes looked at the
Derby Squad and is Very Interested
in Derbys Steve Davies who had
Scored 12 goals in 21 games which is
Very Impressive.The Transfer Listed
Player is from Liverpool But is a
Massive Liverpool Fan but I doubt if
They do make a Suprising move for
him that wouldnt stop him.

When people read this i have to
remind you that derby offered steve
davies a new deal.They want to keep
him but due to family reasons he
needs to relocate near Liverpool.So
I think if they do approach this would
be good for everyone.

Dont just click Unbelievable because
you think hes not good enough
because your wrong hes one of the
best finishers in the league and
with his record this season he has one
of the best Goals to game ratios.(8)(22)Embarrassing rumour.. Totally unbelievable.. He's awful.. A good finisher is Lambert or Beckford.. Davies is a joke...Just wondering is jeff hendrick any good from a ireland fanHes amazing.Hes Improved amazingly.I too am an Ireland fan and will be supporting them in the euros.So as you can Imagine abit gutted about paul green leaving but we have stars of the Future in Jeff Hendrick and Mark o BrienHendrick is class. Been our best player this year and it is his first full seasonJeff Hendrick is very good and steve davies is as good a finisher as lambert... no joke.Davies is a great player and he will work well with better players cus u can see his movement and passing is too good for other players at this level sometimes and hendrick as a solid young talent his passing and ability to hold the ball is top notchEverton will not get rid of Duffy, he's going to be class and they only have 3 other cb'sUtter tripeDuffy is part of Moyes' plans. I expect Distin to retire this season, Duffy could contest for a place.

Steve EFC

leeds takeover to be completed within 10 days
neil warnock will be given 25m warchest for all out automatic finish next season..that is why only 1 signing been made as lack of funds and no point signing ste when youll have access to $$$$ in next 2 weeks(7)(23)We have heard this before i will believe it
when it happens, still think anybody will have a problem getting our ken to move overLol.......... its ok having millions (very much doubt it by the way) but who you gunna spend it on qpr reseves ex crystal palace players?? who is going to go to leeds you would be better off investing in your youth system or give david oleary a ring he knows how to waste millions of poundsThere hasnt been one mention of a takeover. just that bates is taking to investors big differenceBig war chest is not a guarantee to success re Ipswich, Leicester etc. Southampton, Norwich went up on their existing squads, money will not build you a team.

One of the issues is clubs know you have money so you get quoted inflated prices and lets face it the sort of player your'e thinking of at that money will go to premier league.
Unfortunately Like Ipswich,Leicester and all Leeds are not a big any club more.No he hasnt hes been told hes got to sell b4 he can buy to raise fundsAll a load of drivel, it is a takeover , we will buy big and be in premier as soon as,and leeds are still a massive club ,always will be ,no comparison with ipswich , leicester , small town clubs.I am a west ham fan but intelligent to realise that leeds utd are easily the biggest club in championship and if they are taken over with unlimited funds then they would get the pick of players.


01 Jun 2012 09:43:41
Ipswich town to sign a goalkeeper before next Friday, news will break of who exactly over the bank holiday weekend! I know this is brief but cannot be to specific!(6)(4)I think Ipswich will need about three goalkeepers all playing at once to keep the goals out next seasonIts Watford Keeper Scott Loach for aprox 700kScott loachWatford fans will be up in arms now you've quoted 750k. They were demanding at least 2 million.Maybe Watford will let us have Loach on the cheap on the basis they owe us one for paying them £1.5m over the odds for Priskin...

there were Arsenal Scouts watching
Frances Friendly(12)(6)Mangala and Sakho are Definate No'sWhen is Wenger going to bring through British talent from inside instead of French? (or buying it from Southampton?). If he wants to manage French talent, why doesnt he go back to France?Scouts and backroom staff are french so why wouldnt they watch france

Does anybody know if watford due to
be taken over i know bas has done
good but rumors are saying he's got
no money and hasnt met any
payments. Can someone clarify
this(1)(1)Your not being taken over . It's Leeds united who will be in 10 days.To the person above you do know it's possible for two clubs to be taken over at the same time by different people?
to my fellow watford fan this is all fabricated rubbish. the watford observer would have reported any interested bidder by now and bassini told them yesterday that 2.5m of the bonds had been paid and that he was working on cancelling the 1m overdraft and the interest on the remaining bondsIts being rumours search kevin affleck on twitter x-watford observer editor close links to watford. Apparently bassini hasnt met the payment to ashcroft and simpson and apparently didnt pay staff last week, so worrying times at watford hopefully someone waiting in the wings to take over , apparently udinese owner expressed interest in us a while ago.According to Kevin Affleck we are being taken overAll Crap by Kevin Affleck who has issues...Staff have been paid ( I should know ! ) Just twitter nonsence.That is true, Bassini will be selling up and there is a potential new owner on the horizon.

Carl Ikeme, Wolves and Paul Smith, forest, both strongly linked to fill Middlesbroughs available goalkeeper position. Both released by their clubs and both have enjoyed successful loan spells at Boro over the last couple of seasons(4)(9)Carl Ikeme not been released by Wolves has 2 yrs left on his contract and will not be leaving due to Henners being out till christmasIkeme hasnt been released from wolves. We only have the two keepers with hennessey out injured so highly unlikely he will leave anyway.Get ikeme, quality keeper UTBHe's out of contract. check out the leagues player availabilty list published this morning. it shows all players out of contract on 1/6/12Well thats wrong n he loves it here he wants the no1 jerseyIts only craddock thats nearly out of contract at the mo..(subject to being offered 1year Extension) so who ever has given you this info is either messing u about or a Baggies Fan... {edsnote}Who ever is saying ikeme is out ov contract is well rong y make lies up iam a boro fan and wud love him back hes class he will get no1 for wolves

i know this info is quite crap but reading will make a big signing very soon, im not talking about players like Marriapa. dont know who it is myself but ive been told it's a big signing and our record transfer deal will be well beaten.
MrRfc(7)(1)Well our record is not hard to beat 2.5 million but if you're talking about us breaking it by a fairly long way, I hope it's for Gylfi, especially as there are rumours we have matched the Swansea bidWe have made a bid for gylfi, i dont know if he is this player. i think gylfi will go to liverpool but we have 100% made a bid.
MrRfcAny ideas at all MrRFC?!Nicky Hammond has backed this up and hinted about it a week or two ago in the Reading Chronicle.Im not sure but going by other speculation, maybe Defoe but that's just me guessing


01 Jun 2012 08:18:05
Derby County Have Had A £600,000 Bid Rejected For Northampton's Michael Jacob's, Rumour Has It Clough Could Use Mark O'Brien Or James Bailey To Tempt Northampton To Part With Jacobs(1)(11)Both Mark O brien and James Bailey are worth more than Jacobs.

Especially Mark O Brien.Hes one of the best Young Centre Back in Ireland and is Highly Rated by Derby and Nigel Clough
Those first 5 games of the season that we won he started all of them with 4 clean sheets and only letting in 1 goal.He will become the first team centre back.

James Bailey is a good player and still young he is only leaving because hes too good to sit on a bench and there is a better partnership between Hendrick and Bryson.

Teams such as West brom want him dont believe me go to sky so why would we use James bailey when we could get 750k for him.

This what really annoys me Jacobs plays in League 2 send any of our first team players to the league 2 and they would look world class.Jacobs is untested at this level he is a talented player and instead of Messing teams about should tell Northampton that he is leaving and that they should accept the offer Derby made of 350,000.The tribunal would be 400,000 not the 800,000 people are saying i checked it on the Fa site.

I have seen the Youtube clips and he does look to be good player with a really good long shot.You must remember these are only rumours so don't get so upset what will be will be stay cool Northampton fanThe two deals would be loans not permanentJacobs will cost around 700,000 - 800,000 grand!!! Get your facts right

gary roberts and mike grella now north enders with the possability shefki kuqi coming to deepdale(0)(11)Grella is not signing for pne ,am a pne fan and know its crapSame Gary Roberts who's supposed to be going tp sheff Wed?Getting ready for a long stay in league 1. All the signings you are making are typical league 1 players. In Westley you trust - God help you.Bitter and twisted fans from stevenage ,tranmere,carlise pne dont give a toss wat u lot think wait for the football to start then comment wen pne go upLong stay in League 1? dont think so, Westley has a proven track record of building winning teams and this is exactly what he is doing15th in league 1 and just 3 wins in 20+ games.....may have been OK at Stevenage.....but he's shocking when he's in League 1....soory PNE fans but he hates players and always starts arguments with them. Falls out with everyone at stevenage and were better off without him...thanks for taking Del Boy

Burton Albion to sign Lionel ainsworth after a successful loan spell at the end of last season. Also they are considering a move fir Karl hawley who gas been released by notts county but wages could be a problem. Enoch showunmi is also a possible signing following his release from tranmere rovers.(2)(5)Lionel has agreed a 2 year deal with port vale once the takeover has been completed in the next few days. 100%Hope port vale do sign Ainsworth..he had the heart of a mouse when he was on loan at us.

Chelsea reportedly agree to £38 million fee for Porto striker Hulk(19)(11)Quite possibly the most overrated and over priced player in the world.

Paul Lambert is expected to named as the new Aston Villa manager later today.
Grant Holt is expected to join up with Lambert at Villa Park.
Forming a Holt & Bent partnership.
Lambert will then chase after Junior Hoilett with a promise of first team football to add some pace to the wings.
Lambert will then sell off Warnock & Collins to his good friend Martin O'Neill for a total of £6m.
That £6m will pay for Holt.
£20m will then be available for changing Villa's ageing side.

Villa set to attempt to raid neighbours Birmingham City for Nathan Redmond (valued at around £8.5m)(15)(14)Isnt Nathon redmond a Massive Birmingham fan and would never join
Aston Villa Especially with Bigger clubs interested e.g ChelseaVilla favs to go down this season and no1 will come to villa they couldnt get any1 last season never mind this seasonYes exactly what I thought but look at Craig Gardner (huge blues fan) but signed for Villa's academy instead of Blues's! Question is would Prem game time at a team be better than reserve games with chelsea?He hasn't joined yet but you know who he'll sign and sell!! Impressive

Have to say I fancy Villa to go down as wellWe wont go down are you mad? and redmond is a gunner. but even tho he plays for the st i'd still sign him up,hoilet would love it down the villa and i could see him signing soon. paul lamberts claret and blue army!!


01 Jun 2012 07:57:09
Brentford have put a bid in for Charlton striker Paul Hayes(9)(1)Donaldson is a striker under contract at brentford, cant see bees selling to be honest?They can have him not championship qualityDonaldson is a striker under contract at brentford, cant see bees selling to be honest?
What does that have to do with Hayes going to Brentford? Your buying someone not selling.Paul Hayes to Brentford has been rumoured for a while - plenty of CAFC fans have heard this one. The rumour that he is off to Wycombe in a part exchange deal for Stuart Beavon is total nonsense.

Leon Clarke is also on his way out of The Valley with Crawley being the most likely destination.What a shame , Leon Clarke was such am influential player at charlton, his striking abilities and goals will be Hugely missed, Leon Clarke is easily a championship playerClarke played only a handful of games for us and didn't really make an impact wont really effect us. He seemed to be quite good at Chesterfield tho.Hayes never got a chance once Kermit arrived, it's a shame becuause I think he did quite well up until then.


01 Jun 2012 07:48:56
Grant Holt is on way to VIlla. Hooper and Lennon would go to Norwich, but why would Lennon move from a champions keague team to a Mid table prem team?(3)(12)Because he will actually have a challenge in the Premiership. The SPL 2012-2013 title is already Celtic's, how boring eh?Hooper would not join Norwich either!Maybe because it's not a mickey mouse league like the SPL, you'll be out of the champions league before Xmas anywayHolt has twittered he wants to leave the club after 3 years, sad what is going on behind the scenes?And Norwich is a Mickey Mouse club who will be back in the championship next year!

You wonder why everyone hates the English! Your arrogance is truly astounding!As someone previously mentioned, the top team in the welsh league also gets in the champions league, and they actually have competition to get there!, spl shouldnt be allowed to compete in champions league anymore, another position should go to the bpl... plus i believ norwich beat celtic fairly recently, and before you start harping on a bout a reserve team, hooper definately played and the way you talk about him makes you think he is better than messi!Because the premier league is a better league then the spl, its the best league in the world.Because mid table in the prem is still a higher standard that Scottish football which is a complete waste of time and like being in League 1, it is a joke!Is it not better to play in a mickey mouse league rather than a mickey mouse team ???Norwich are not a mid table prem team. Second Season Syndrome will be seen yet again

West Ham have had a 3 million bid accepted for a striker. Do not know who it is but possibilities include:
1) Yakubu (likely)
2) Grant Holt (unlikely)
3) Nile Ranger (unlikely)
4) Nickolas Bedntner (unlikely)
5) Wilferd Zaha (very very unlikely)

I have no idea who it will be but Yakubu seems most likely but it could be anyone.

190298(12)(16)Why pay £3m for a striker that's got a £1m release clause in contract...but guess Sam likes paying over inflated prices for players...enter MaynardYakubu is going to China on £100K a week wages...Definatly not Zaha or Ranger, They're not worth 3mDavies - BoltonYakubu has said he wants to stay in the Premier League

190298Nile Ranger - good fit for whuCould be Kevin Doyle?


01 Jun 2012 07:09:32
Reading chasing former player Kevin Doyle(11)(20)No were not doyle is not prem standard and doesnt want to ruin his legend statusNot seen his public admittance he'll never come back?Doyle has already said he doesn't want to come backHe has already said he doesnt want to come back to the club

Chris Martin will leave Norwich & join Peterborough(8)(16)I really hope this is true.....


01 Jun 2012 07:00:41
Peterborough have bid £500k for Barnsley goalkeeper Luke Steele who cam through the Posh youth set up.(8)(12)This is true, he is a local lad and is prepared to move back to usNowhere near enough could buy his left legIt would take alot more than that for a keeper who is 1 of the best outside the prem!!500k is more than reasonable for a barnsley playerWhy would the best keeper in the championship move to peterborough???250k is most any of your lot worth ? and we bet you home & awayIf Barnsley let Steele go for 500k there is something wrong somewhereYou lot cant afford 5 bob an it will take more than haif a million for luke steeleYou clearly all know nothing about football, just because he plays for barnsley doesnt mean he's not worth money, look at vaz te, west ham wouldn't have got promoted if it wasn't for him and luke has already said he wants to become a reds legend and is happy up north

Gylfi Sigurdsson delaying talks with Swansea, as Liverpool or former club Reading join the race for his signature. Reading is believed to be the preferred option, however big money from Liverpool may sway the decision. Swansea now looking the least likely to get their man.(20)(11)He would join Liverpool.Liverpool the destinationPlease read the official swansea website. Gylfi is still coming to the mighty swansHuw Jenkins is quoted on the BBC website as saying the deal agreed, but nothing is signed. Therefore nothing is certain and if your honest Rogers was a huge factor in him coming to Swansea so this is in some doubt now. Liverpool if interested then Reading are probably preferable to the Swans.No player will ever go to a new club without a manager so until you get a new one, IT AINT GUNNA HAPPEN!No player? So who was Hazard singed for? do they have a manager?But Swansea aren't going to offer the Sig the ridiculous wages Hazard is getting are they? A player will join for a manager-less club, IF they are paid enough. Swansea arent in that position.Yes but Abramovich runs chelsea like he's the manager with the manager being an actual team coach. Swansea are different from Chelsea, their manager makes all the signings and decisions {Ed001's Note - Roman does no such thing, he does not manage the team or choose the players, it is just a myth.}


01 Jun 2012 06:44:33
Ian Holloway will meet Peter Lovenkrands this weekend for talks about him joining Blackpool after. He failed to be awarded a new contract at Newcastle following a Knee injury(9)(8)Not a bpool fan but they wont nosedive and are one of the only financially secure clubs about think they will do ok next year if they keep most of the talent they have as for saints yeh big crowd,good stadium but you lot are so up your own ....... so until you are established in the prem keep it shut.


01 Jun 2012 05:59:43
I've been told that Ryan Nelson will join Ipswich on a 2 year deal and become club captain.
Reliable NZ source(7)(14)No thats not correct i know that for defo sorry mate but your wrong


01 Jun 2012 04:50:06
This is all speculation, as is everything else that is going on at the moment.
As the story is going right now. Villa are trying to skip out on any compensation due to Norwich due to Lambs rolling year contract, eventually Villa will have to cough up something.
Ian Culverhouse is very interested in becoming the head manager and stepping up, and as far as it seems isn't interested in relocating to stay with Lambert. However it's likely the board won't be fond of the move as it's a big step up. Culverhouse is to be joined up with Malky on a two year contract. the two will work together in a co-manager fashion, but Malky will have the official title of "head manager"(5)(9)


01 Jun 2012 04:16:59
Barnsley fc have made approachs for the following players.
Frank nouble
C dawson (loan)
S baldock (loan)
Z diamond (trial)
J mattock(4)(16)Frank Nouble has already accepted to have a trial at moor Farm.

Joe Mattock has been offered a contract
by derby and they have even given him more than he had at west brom because
They need/want him so much.

By Addison do you mean miles Addison
he has been a cut price contract offer and still yet to accept it.Its been between that and Coventry.

C Dawson from West brom?If so He has been a first team regular for the last 6 games of the season.Hes a England u21 centre back has a bright future and especially with Olsen leaving they will need to keep him.Hope not frank nouble !!Mattock is joining Brighton hate to prove u wrong butWhat the Dawson we already have signed from orient last season who played at number 7 ?Addison is wanted by bournemouth, ipswich and barnsley
mattock wanted by brighton, derby, burnley, c palace and barnsley
as for dawson he only played 2 games in the last 6 of the season mate. hes constantly an unused sub.
nouble is rubbish hopefully barnsley wnt go for him.
baldock would be a good signing
diamond is injury prone not goodNouble been at Barnsley on loan twice and not good both times, No thank you


01 Jun 2012 04:14:17
New Crawley manager Sean O'Driscoll is in discussions with Bournemouth about bringing striker Matt Tubbs back to the Broadfield Stadium.(5)(11)Never gunna happenI'd like this to be true...but we could never afford his wages - or the fee, since he was sold reportedly for £800k.Agreed. Bournemouth paid 800K not that long ago, unless an amount that is close to that is offered (unlikely), it won't happen.

It would make both clubs look pretty stupid.Doubt itI'd let Tubbs go back to Crawley for half of that amount! He has been shocking and can't handle this level.We didnt pay 800k for him, it was 400k with future incentives which unless he starts scoring more we will never pay hahaCrawley can have Wes Thomas back...In fact the cheeries would probably pay them to take himback


01 Jun 2012 03:40:33

eriksen to manchester utd for 26m(5)(35)Hulk has joined CFCModric is valued at 40 million by tottenham and if he leaves it will be to

Di Maria is Staying at Real Madrid after
Valencia offered 25 million for him and they turned it down.

Eriksen is Valued at 36 million by Ajax and he already said that if he leaves it wont be to england.His main Preference
is Germany with Bayern Munich.

Manchester united are Getting The Dormunt Japanese midfielder Kawaga.

The Fees are all wrong and so are the Teams.Come back with proper Information next time.

Southend United and Shrewsbury Town are currently negotiating a fee for Ryan Hall.

Southend are thought to want 150k but Shrewsbury don't agree with the valuation.(7)(3)Multiply that 150k by 3 and that's the minimum Southend will be looking for! (From a realistic Shrewsbury fan)450k XD ridiculous. 150k would be about rightObvs not a Shrewsbury fan, we sold a leading premier league striker for 50k more than what you are saying. Ryan hall is a great LEAGUE 2 player , unproven at a higher level.Grant Holt was unproven at a higher level and he isn't really a leading Premier League player!150k a are all you Shrewsbury fans on drugs because the amount of rubbish that you post on here makes it seem that way!If your saying Holt. Not 50k but 500k rumoured3x150=450k
50k more = 500k

i am right ;)Holt was also proven league 1 scorerI don't care what you say but grant holt lives next to me haha


01 Jun 2012 02:14:56
southampton looking to make 1million pound bid for yakubu as he said he wants to exit blackburn(5)(21)West Ham have Made a Bid of 2.5 Million.
Despite Blackburns Relegation Yakuba
and Hoillett played really well to get any goals and the amount Yakuba got shows he still has the Finishers instinct.If i Any of the Three Promoted Sides Yakuba should be Top of your list as he says he wants to stay in Premiership.Hes Got experience.Not true at allRumour here that the Yak is on his way back to the Skates,true,don't know,time will tell.Saints close to signing Jay Rod, not interested in YakubuHe'd be a decent signing but I'm sure he has sky high wages so unlikely!Back to the skates lol the yak is qualityYakubu isn't a patch on lambert


01 Jun 2012 02:03:55
Reading to sign Jordan Rhodes and Danny murphy from fulham(8)(20)Danny Murphy! The guy who got us relegated when he scored that late goal at Portsmouth to stay up on goal difference...Bad times :(You have more chance of signing messi than rhodesTypical Huddersfield fans. You wont keep hold of him, he was saying goodbye to his team mates after the play off final. Grow up and accept he will move to a bigger club just like every talented player with amibition to make something of themselves.A 22 year old Scottish striker with no experience outside League 1, to a championship winning freshly promoted PL side that's just received huge investments, and are promised a 50% stadium expansion if they survive the first season? I think we'll do fine.


01 Jun 2012 01:42:09
poyet to reject swansea as spurs job could be available soon(7)(14)If this is a brighton fan not really Loyal to your Manager.

If your not a Brighton fan where have you been for the past ten years.Gus Poyet
has only Managed Brighton.Even though im a Derby fan i have to admit he has done a good Job But he has only managed for 2 seasons.If Clubs were to
get managers like that Brian Mcdermott would be managing Manchester united.Levy doesn't go back with management


01 Jun 2012 01:41:42
Ian Culverhouse new boss of Norwich(12)(13)Culverhouse and Karsa will follow PL to Aston villa as they have when he managed Wycombe, Colcester and then us. I hope they do leave so that the new manager gets a fresh team of his choice. Hopefully Malkay Makay, Hughton or Lee Clark.


01 Jun 2012 01:37:27
Paris Saint Germain planing a 120 Million bid for Manchester Uniteds striker Wayne Rooney personally i tink it wont happen but even if its true roony would never leave united would he ?(14)(20)He can barely speak English, let alone French.Why wouldnt he? he handed in a transfer request not too long ago and stayed when they offered him money....if a big club has an offer accepted and they offer him more money he will go! but i think it would only be a barca or real madrid sized teamThe same rooney that handed in a transfer request not long ago?He's already shown that he would be willing to leave United, I just don't think its ligue 1 the teams in that league are really poor.Rooney isnt worth 120 million.No player in the world is worth 120 million.Barcelona Value messi as 85 million.Rooney is a very Good striker but he only performs when the team performs he oftens gets mardy if the team are loosing and dosent put in the effort or gets sent off.Course shreks worth that much.I think he would leave but only to Italy or spaind. If he is willing to go to any country for the money then he may as well go to china/russia/us money would be slightly better there anyway.


01 Jun 2012 01:30:06
rumour has it that this is the guy leading the consortium to take over Leeds United

Kenneth Griffin (born October 15, 1968 in Daytona Beach, Florida) is an American hedge fund manager. He is the founder and CEO of Citadel LLC, a Chicago-based investment firm. Citadel's group of hedge funds rank amongst the largest and most successful hedge funds in the world, and Griffin has earned several billion dollars during his tenure at the company. As of 2011, he has an estimated net worth of $2.3 billion(7)(15)£2.3billion and he will still be only allowed to invest £6m..... {Ed001's Note - it is not quite that simple, I wish people would read the entire ruling before making comments like this. They can pay for a major part of the infrastructure and fund its running. There are a lot of parts of a football club that are essentially exempt from the ruling.}Coventry City is owned by a hedge fund, SISU, look where they are now.

Looking very likely now that Kevin De Bruyne will be joining Reading on a season long loan. Chelsea want him to carry on playing regular football while also getting used to the premier league and Reading is seen as a good place for that to happen.(14)(5)Didnt see this coming but it sounds realistic as Chelsea probably will want him to get first team football and at reading he will get thatYes please!Sounds like a load of rubbish personally!!Dont see it being true myself.A player can't be transferred to a prem club and loaned out to another prem club in the same window ... remember same thing was discussed with Lukaku and Stoke last year^^ thats rubbish - in a years period you cant play for more than 2 clubs. Lukaku had played for his previous club and chelsea.Nope that was to do with not being able to play for 3 clubs in one season. Chelsea signed De Bruyne in January anyway.Yes they can. Depends on the contract though.It's 2 clubs in a season not a year.De Bruyne has been enquired about by Southampton. Not seen anything about Reading being interested.


01 Jun 2012 00:36:37

Preston to announce the signings on friday,saturday and sunday of:

Gary roberts-stevenage
Mike grella-bury
Shefki kuqi-oldham
Nathan doyle-barnsley
Francios zoko-carlisle
Donaldson-brentford(2)(20)It's already been announced that Mike Grella has NEVER been a target and he's not a player Graham Westley wants

Shefki kuqi would command a small fee and theres 3 or 4 other teams chasing him so it's very very doubtfull he will be coming to PNE

Nathan Doyle & Zoko again have quite big transfer values and unless the Coutts & Hume deals go through (have been told we should get around £600k for both)....then theres no money available to buy them.

Not been told about Donaldson....who is he?......not ANOTHER defenderIt's Mark Roberts who plays for Stevenage!
Grella NOT for PNE - Peter Ridsdale.We haven't got a player called Gary Roberts.I'd love it if we signed that lot. but Zoko's too good for us and Donaldson is unlikely too.All untrueNone of these players will be at Deepdale unless in the opposition team. PR has stated in today's LEP that we haven't made any enquiry for Grella and has no idea where the rumour came from.He has said that he is not joing you loads of times you are only league 1 he is going to thge championship you finshed below carlisle last year and you will do it again nextZoko and Donaldson will not leave their respective clubs for a team who play hoofballPne have got money even with out selling coutts so stop making up crap rumours ,pne dnt want grella or kuqi there in talks with a prem league striker also hume is stayingGary Roberts from Stevenage :S what are you on about!
Mark Roberts is at Stevenage, get their names right!

And your welcome to Donaldson LOL so bad.MARK Roberts plays for STEVENAGE. Preston have already signed GARY Roberts from HUDDERSFIELD.Almost believable apart from the fact Gary Roberts was at Huddersfield. Dream on.Would love to know were you got the idea preston play hoofball seeing as we passed the ball well towards the end of the season and gary roberts has signed from huddersfield and is a winger wouldnt mind donaldson at pneKuqi is out of contract so would be free.Y would doyle cost a fee barnsley have released himTypical PNE they dont know half the players they have signed and the only way they know if there after them is if they areFREEZoko is out of contract and would not cost anythingGary Roberts is close to signing for sheff wednesday according to all the papers todayDonaldson isnt bad! one of brentfords best players after christmas! joint top assists too! (Y)You would need to pay Kuqi good wages, our supporters trust helped pay part of his wages at Oldham. If he doesn't resign for us he will more than likely go back to Finland to finish his playing career. Why don't ONE just sign evryone and from all the signing on fees your debt gets bigger thanks to Ridsdale.Premier league striker, haha preston, ok guess its heskey then, bet pne fans think they are going to get someone on the fringes of a prem teamOnly if they are free and will play for League 2 wagesWhere does it say PNE have signed Gary Roberts?Preston North End are quality and will be getting promoted next seasonHow many strikers do you want ?


31 May 2012 23:42:28

Can be a bit inconsistant

A lot of interest from pl clubs Rogne? still young not the best tho Mulgrew? swooped all awards and reading are interested izaguirre? pretty sure man utd were interested in him last season. forrest? spurs were interested kayal? man utd were interested.

Tomasz Kuszczak about to sign for Brighton (free agent from Man U) along with Joe Mattock (free agent from WBA) while Liam Trotter will go to Brighton from Millwall with Will Hoskins and a bunch of cash going the other way.(8)(13)Wrong on both counts my friendTrotter wont be joining brighton , i have no idea why brighton fans think this we will only sell to a premiership club - your not signing him get over itI hope you're right on all counts (although would be happy to give Hoskins another season to prove himself)Trotter will never go to brighton and millwall will not want to sell him cheap as he is a highly rated player.If he is going anywhere it will be the premier league and millwall will do the best to keep himI'd love it if that was true but can't see it tbhThats really good news if it happens, great signing , but we need the managers situation sorted out first. come on Gus tell everyone how happy you are at the Amex and honour your contract like all great honest men . {Big G}Trotter is going nowhere, he is in talks about extending his contract at the Den.Trotter will only be sold to a Prem club, Millwall have made that clear.What a load of rubbish? There's more chance of Mackail-Smith coming to Millwall than Trotter joining Brighton!
I find it bizarre that Brighton fans seem to think they're the new Man City or Chelsea when it comes to transfers.
You'll be doing well to stay in the Championship next season... I genuinely think Brighton will get second season syndrome and do well do survive the drop.
Signing Trotter... Don't make me laugh!With a name like Trotter he should be at Charlton nil, I dont know if he'd play for Chairman Slater though.Millwall are a tiny clubcompared to brightonMillwall will sell to whoever offers a big enough fee and can agree personal terms with Trotter.

Swansea city in talks with Brighton Manager Gus Poyet(17)(15)"It would take something special to lure Gus away from Brighton" Sorry I don't think Swansea fit in the special category.Come on Boss clear this mess up today, is Gus staying,going or is this all papertalk, remember the brighton fans they deserve better treatment that this.Gus will not go to Swansea spoke to his son and he is at tho moment playing football across the pondGus is currently in Uruguay on holiday!No there not there in talks with Wigan number 2Poyet is in Uraguay right now so they must be some very long distance talks with the Boy'os. Silly and totally unfounded rumor.Phones!!

millwall are set to sign chris taylor from oldham who has had a medical at the den and is set to sign for the lions in two weeks. this is a fact from millwall official website(4)(4)Hope you are right about Kuqi joining Preston - Signing quantity not quality ? - Just glad he is not at OldhamTrue this is a fact , so why post on a RUMOUR siteOne of Kuqi's best mates happens to be paul Dickov, now you see why he signed for Oldham. If he doesn't stay he will go to Finland. Last season all PNE fans called him fat and now they would like him as well as the other 20 players they will sign as they are signing everyone. DEBT DEBT DEBT for singing on fees then wages on top. Well done to your Chairman.Medicals are done in New Eltham

Reading to sign jelavic from everton for 6000000 {Ed025's Note - you will need another nought on the end of that mate..(1)(36)Just LOLAbsolutely no chance at all of this happening!Reading fans small mind small clubWhy leave a good club like everton for probable relegation favourites?

baggyboyBeen in the pub a little too long, me thinks!Hmm we are a bigger club than both swansea and watford??.... I agree with the Ed. Everton buy a player for £5.5m and he scores 11 goals in 15 games. So obviously that means they should sell him for £6m especially since he only has 4 years left on his contract.... why would he want to go to reading even if ye has the ridiculuous money needed.I don't think he was seriousI think an extra nought would make Jelavic 60 million Ed025. That is perhaps a bit far fetched? even for a striker of his skill :-PWhy would any player leave a giant like everton to go to a cannon fodder teamYour never bigger than Swansea sell out all away games and at home your support is ridiculous you were one of the smallest clubs in the championshipIf Everton are giants, how come they have massive debt and no titles to their names... Someone got a huge blow to the head as a child. Be realistic, you are a Premier League mainstay but you never challenge the title. {Ed001's Note - Everton have won the league 9 times! That is a lot of titles.}Our supports better than Swansea's. And hardly one of the smallest. We had better attendances than most championship clubs"Your never bigger than Swansea sell out all away games and at home your support is ridiculous you were one of the smallest clubs in the championship"

We may not be the biggest but to say that is just pathetic and way off the mark.How can people say Swansea and WBA are bigger clubs. I mean come on, Swansea fans we were 1 point from Euro football in our first season and then got relegated the next year so especially without your saviour Rodgers you will struggle and more than likely get relegated this year. WBA you have yo yo'd for seasons and gained no status at all! Dont be jealous because we have money. Im not naive enough to think we will buy Tevez or Nani but why wouldnt players like Mariapa or Gunter join us? Ambitious club with POTENTIAL to be a big club. Both your teams aren't really Man City are you? Must be warm in that bubble u are all in!Everton aren't a big team because they have debts? Ummmmm I think most big teams have debts. Everton is one of the biggest teams in the premier league, and the longest running top flight teams too.

Shefki Kuqi is joining Preston. Oldham had offered him a new one year deal but he's frustrated by the lack of ambition by the club. He reckons Preston will be pushing for Promotion and wants to be involved in a promotion challenge. He had 2 offers from the Championship and One from Finland but he's opted for Preston.

(Source I'm an OAFC fan and I've Spoken to Shefki himself)(16)(12)Have you been to Finland then to talk to him as he's there at the moment.Of couse youre an Oldham fan....once you said Preston will be going for promotion....I thought...."Thats an Oldham fan"So you will have Wesolowski, Morais and Kuqi then.Kuqi too slow.just heard Gary Roberts has signed for Preston.Yep: just read on wikipedia, Gary Roberts is a PNE playerDidn't Kuqi take up the option of extending his contract for another year? around the same time when Furman signedHeard something similar from sumone in the know at pne. and I support blackburn.I didn't say Preston will be pushing for promotion, they were Shefki's words. I don't think they will.So youre in Finland then......?

I agree they wont be pushing for promotion.....another year in debt, despair and League 1Yeh right! I bet kuqi also told you that because Preston are so awesome, he's convinced fellow fin Jussi Jääskeläinen to sign as wellKuqi has gone on record saying he's only playing in lge 1 due to his "best mate" being oldham manager, he's either staying at Oldham or going back to Finland.Anyone can put they are an oldham fan, if you are your probably a main stand moaner, anyways dickov is best mates with kuqi so unless he is going back to finland or to a championship team, i cant see him not signing (unfortunately), and i am an actual oldham fan!

colchester closing in on airdries ryan donelly for nominal fee(1)(3)Although I doubt this as Celtic and Wigan have already shown an interest in the player; and we are supposed to not be paying any transfer fees, it's certainly a deal I would like to see happen none the less!

Stoke are looking at fullback John Brayford from Derby for a possible bid in the region of £2-£2.5m. He's impressed at Crewe and Derby (winning player of the year at both clubs) and looks likely to take a step up to the premier league. He's a lifelong Stoke fan (even watches some games) and it would be a 'dream move' for the 24 year old.(10)(5)A lot of people "even watch Stoke games" hardly makes them life long fans.Yeah, double that and you might be close to his valuation, best RB in the ChampionshipHe is a massive stoke fan.But Derby had already rejected an Enquiry by Aston villa.Nigel Last year had stated that John Brayford will Be player who will be here for years.In my opnion hes one of the best Rb outside the premier league.Double £2m? I'd pay £4m, I think he more than deserves a try in the prem and I'd love to see him in a back 4 with Huth and Shawcross. In a perfect world we'd also offload Danny Collins as a swap and cash as well.Wow, some people on here need to get a sense of humour. (I'm looking at you Mr. 1st reply). Just for the record Brayford is from Stoke has supported Stoke all his life and is probably usually a bit busy on match days to watch the games. Hope we sign him.Brayford pinned a note on the Stoke dressing room door after last season's cup game asking them jokingly to save him a cup final ticket..........he is a huge Stoke fan. Why do some argue about something they know NOTHING about? Stoke desperately need two full backs

I'd make it more seeing as he is Peter Leven and he does what he wants excluding joining them though.

Norwich are considering one of Martin Olsson or Morten Gamst Pedersen.(22)(12)Check bbc sport, u will see that peds has pledged his future with blackburn so stop making up rubbish!I doubt its Morten Gamst Pedersen considering he's stated he's stayingWho will sign whilst there is indecision about who the manager will be?
Until that is sorted, think you will find no deals will progress.Agree with the first reply.Well pederson has already said he is not leaving because he is staying to help blackburn back upPederson will never leave Blackburn, he is Blackburn through and through. Martin Olsson is interesting Chelsea I think. Norwich have no chance.

Charlton are to enquire about the possibility of a season long loan deal for Chelsea's Lukaku. Charlton are able to offer him minutes next year than offer clubs that are supposedly interestest.(3)(13)Hes got the talent to play upfront for everygame for chelsea next season
and score 20 + goals.he and Neymar are
the hottest young strikers around.Hes going on loan to Stoke for that much needed pace.Charlton maybe if you had just missed out on promotion to the top flight but you have just got to the championship.Give it a season and you might be back down you never know.No, we're not, you just made that up.Not a chance!Reported he could move on loan to Werder Bremen on loan as part of Marin dealDon't have a hissy fit lads, this is a complete lie and was made up!Why would Lukaku come to charlton?Prem clubs would want him.Charlton will not start the season with loans, get it into your thick skulls!!Seems legit

Reading have made a bid for Gylfi sigurdsson and the deal for Adrian Mariappa is edging closer too. Been told if Ledley King cannot agree a new deal at Spurs then Reading are alos ready to entre discussions about a 2 year contract.

PD(20)(20)This is sounding increasingly possible every dayI've never heard such rubbish all these players linked to reading none of these will sign for a little club like readingBest News Having Gylfi back would be niceSo many jealous fans hating on Reading. Don't let the green eyed monster get the better of you.It amuses me the people saying little Reading...I always find when the dust settles people can this is rumours it should be treated as such not for small minded people to try and jealously comment on a clubs "size"Sigurdsson will join LiverpoolWhy would anyone be jealous of Reading?So many 'little club' comments.. All these dinosaur 'big clubs' have some very bitter green eyed fans.. It's goo to see a well run club coming up and changing the status quoWhat people are saying is your support is terrible and you big yourself up as a big club when there are proper clubs outside the prem who deserve it your fanbase deserves nothingDeserve? You deserve where your team gets you not your fans!. Our fan base has grown year on year for almost 20 years.. Each year season tickets are consistent..put away the jealousy it's an ugly characteristic.. To see a modest club spend little, have few debts and build a first team of academy players get promoted above clubs spending millions is a deserved and commendable thingWhat most our fans have stayed with the club for most of our lives while the club went into the prem and out of it and back into it.Premier league status is won on merit not crowds. And if our support is so bad then why are we expanding our stadium to 37k? we took over 40000 to wembley and knew many more fans who didnt get tickets. So no our support is not badSorry I didn't realise leagues and cups were won based on who had the most fans. If they were then Leeds would have won everything. Football is decided on the pitch and not in the stands. Reading were the best team in the Championship last season. We now have the money to strengthen and build on the already great infrastructure at the club.

If you want to carry on calling us a small club because we didn't win the European cup back in the 1970's then go ahead. We're winning stuff now. Whilst your dinosaur clubs are sinking like a stone."What people are saying is your support is terrible and you big yourself up as a big club when there are proper clubs outside the prem who deserve it your fanbase deserves nothing"

We are a club that has been steadily growing over the past few years doing things the right way and are exactly where we deserve to be. what is it about people in this country who just have to find a way of slagging you off just because you have a little bit of success.Reading are a team to be watched next season; mark my words!Where is reading?
All I know about reading is it involves books.

If you cant explain.This is a lie. 750k is barmy, 250k. do your research!Ben tozer to sign for bristol city,next weekHad 600k turned down already so why take 250k? and he can run with the ball at pace, in fifa john terry is quick so who caresIts not 250k do your research they have rejected bids around that, if it went to compensation it will cost 600-700k

Shrewsbury have negotiated a contract with ex Huddersfield player Nathan Clarke.

They have also held contract talks with Southend winger Ryan Hall after Paul Sturrock accepted a 100k bid.(10)(5)That is a ridiculously low figure. Dream on if you think he will go for that much!If we accepted an offer the club would have made a statementKeep him and stay in league 2 better players out there than himClarke will go either Oldham or Bury.Has offers from league 1 clubs so why would he bother with Shrewsbury in league 2Shrewsbury not back in league 2 already I hope.Because Shrewsbury are in League One next season. And that is wheer Southend should have been except Sturrock blew it big scale and should have walked.He has been released. This would attract a zero feeHes doing a painting and decorating course so wont be playing next year,sorry to dissapoint shrewsburyShrewsbury > SouthendSouthend > Shrewsbury
Sturrock > Turner
Roots Hall > Greenhous Meadow
SUFC Fans > STFC Fans
SUFC Ambitions > STFC Ambitions {Ed001's Note - to be fair Turner is a legend of the game, Sturrock is far from a legend.}I'm sorry agree with most but can't agree with you saying Sturrock is better than Turner. Turner has achieved so much more in the game compared to Sturrock. from a Southend fan.Honestly, some Southend fans are deluded.In a official study Sturrock was found to be in the top 15 best managers of all time with the clubs that he has been at and the budgets he has had to use and Turner wasn't anywhere near the top 15 so this time you are wrong Ed! {Ed001's Note - how am I wrong? Because some 'official study' tells you? Can you not think for yourself? Turner has done more for football than Sturrock ever will. Clearly you have no idea about the man, so just leave it, and try and accept that any study suggesting Sturrock is in the top 15 of all time is a joke! Statistics can be twisted to prove almost any lie is true, but only fools lap them up and believe them.}Turners better and this ambition stuff is brilliant. We went up and have been top of lg2 for years.
Sturrock managed in the prem if hes so good why is he in league 2 now. We are better.
If your grounds so good why are trying to moveHow are Southend's ambitions better? What are their ambitions? And what do you think Shrewsbury's are?Soutend letting their best striker leave on a free is good ambition. top 15 manager's of all time and he's in league 2? , Turner managed to take a team like Hereford to league 1, as soon as he left they get relegated to the conference , he also saved the club by putting his own money in to help run it while they were suffering. Top football guy. {Ed001's Note - exactly, Turner is a really nice man, a true legend, regardless of stats or anything else.}A) Shrewsbury League 1, Southend Leage 2 ---> Shrews > Southend
b) Turner managed many clubs to success including premier league, sturrock has done very well but turner has a longer service of doing well ---> Turner > sturrock
c) Greenhous Meadow this season: W18, D5 L0, Roots Hall this season: W12, D6, L5 ---> Meadow > Roots Hall
d)Shrews average attendance:5768, S'end av att: 5964, however shrewsbury is just a small town competing with the likes of Birmingham, Wolves, Villa, West Brom and a few other teams around us wheras the only teams around you are dagenham and gillingham so there is less competition ---> STFC fans > SUFC fans
e) Every club has the ambition of being succesful and reaching the top of the game so ambitions are the same (Only difference is Shrewsbury are one step closer!)

Sorry about the essay but please get the facts right before you post rubbish

P.S. a player is only worth what clubs will pay for him - there is no point in a player being worth 200k if clubs are only going to pay half that for himThis Ed is smart. Turner is one of the football league legends. If you think Sturrocks better you are a moron.
Are Shrewsbury not ambitiousDickinson wasn't Southend's best striker probably 3rd or 4th so you don't really know much do you?The fact you Southend fans think Sturrock is in the top 15 manager's in the world just proves how deluded you are!Turners better than Sturrock.... Dont know much do youWhen was the last time Shrewsbury was in the championship?Does it matter when. You crashed down quick Southend. 20+ years. And weve had a year in the confrenceIn the 80s low budget but stayed there playing neat passing football im sorry i watched u play crewe longball rubbish but if that makes southend happy well goodluck to u turner legend enough saidShrewsbury are hardly ambitious, just look at there playersShrewsbury fans are completely deluded if they think were competing for fans with gillingham a 1 hour 30 minuted drive away with west ham, tottenham and arsenal 1 hour away,How are we not ambitious. Are chairman wants the championship and we have some great players. Grandison, Richards and hopefully still James Collins. Your in league 2. Were in lg1. We seem to be more ambitious.

Ipswich and Peterborough have both offered contracts to Colchester's out of contract 'keeper Ben Williams, Colchester have also offered him a contract but the lure of championship could be too good to turn down.(6)(4)At 30 next birthday he won't remotely interest Peterborough. Doesn't fit the proflile.Doesn't matter if he is good enough, one of the most consistent goalkeepers in league one and most underrated last 3 seasons. Saves us 10-12 points a season easy! Looks championship bound unfortunately :(He will leave for sure, although I hope not to poormans road, he could do so much better for himself and would go down in most u's fans estimations if he signed for ipch. JW has already said we wont sign a new keeper to replace him so cousins will be new number 1.Not a football decision, a commercial one. May well be very good indeed, but too old for any potential transfer market profit in the future.I find it funny how Colchester fans really care about their rivalry with Ipswich, and Ipswich fans really don't care as Colchester are a pub team.Ha ha ha a Colchester fan saying 'Poormans road'. That's hilarious. You of course are so rich and successful! I quite like your club but morons like you may change my mind.Don't say Colchester are a pub team, that's very harsh. Colchester are a good league 1 team and local rivalry is nothing to be ashamed of. The majority of us Ipswich fans rightly don't hold anything against Ipswich fans. Colchester fansI am an Ipswich fan and I don't hold anything against Colchester fans. It's just that the one commenting on this post was being a mug with comments like 'Poorman's Road.

Chris taylor snubs crystal palace and peterborough and joins Millwall from oldham signing a one year contract.

OAFC(12)(8)Good luck to the lad,lets hope KJ has found another GEM!COYLNever on Peterborough's radar - at 26 next birthday, far too old.That is by far the most rediculous statement i have ever heard!a football is too old at 26!!! no wonder you watch the posh!!Not ridiculous, you don't understand, and you can't spell either. Peterborough have climbed two divisions whilst making an enormous transfer market profit by only buying and selling on players which fit a precise proflile. Nothing to do with being too old for football at 26, everything to do with the fact that his next move will probably be a free.Taylor has never held talks with Palace. The only club in London he has spoken to is Millwall.Taylor would have never gone to Peterborough because their game plan is to kick team off the park and with previously being in their firing line on many occasions I don't think he would of given them the time of day!!!!!!He is a good player i would have loved to see him at posh he is never too old ,just right i'd say shamePeterborough kicking players off the park? with one of the smallest teams in the championship? and a manager and team renowned for attacking football? Dream onPosh came joint second in the 2011/12 fair play league, that doesn't sound like a team that kicks you of the park to me!

Pack + Simonson have had great seasons, and if Weale is fit then he'd be a great keeper for usWheres the sorce of eastwood coming from ? ive heard nothing other than hereEastwood tweeted a couple of days ago "sunny in Scunny" so whilst it would be awesom to have him with Sir GJ and the Glovers, I fear Scunthorpe may be his destinationWeale is constantly injured and the other players on on too much money for their worth... although pack would be a reasonable signing actually...

Huddesfield Midfielder Anton Robinson is set to rejoin Bournemouth after falling out of favour(10)(7)Bye bye then, hope the door doesnt hit him on the BUM on his way out, or he will still be on the injury list at the start of next season. lolWould be more than happy to see him back at AFCB.Hope not, shadow of the player he was.If he can come back and find his best form then i would welcome him with open armsHave him he is useless ill drop him off myself waste of space

Newcastle United are considering an offer for Charlton right back Chris Solly.(5)(11)Chris solly is priceless, we woudnt sell him unless it was a top four club.Consider it well because he is expensiveThe next Gary Neville but without an ugly twin brotherChris solly in talks with west ham , £2 millChris Solly is in talks with no one, when the big clubs come calling (and they will) they will need a bigger cheque book. Right now he is learning his trade and is in the right place.^ No he isn't, and why would we sell out most promising player for £2 mill?£2m is derisory. at least £4m

Ronnie moore is being lined up to replace an out of favour dean saunders at doncaster rovers

How is he ''Out of favour''. Saunders has big plans for Rovers's future. Anyway i'm sure we'd look a bit higher than Ronnie Moore(5)(9)This is coming from a derby fan
Doncaster had been major favourites to
be relegated for the past 3 seasons it would have been better for them to have been relegated the first time a it will allow them to do a norwich or southampton and completely start from scratch by releasing dead wood and bringing in youth from their academy as in the prem and championship teams are more cautious so dont test out there young stars where as the league 1 and 2 clubs rely on youngsters.I wish doncaster luck and Dean being a Derby favourite i know he can do a job once given the time to revamp the squad.Dont want ronnie more anywere near doncaster thankyouDerby fan has it spot onWe ain't got the money to rid Saunders ..a.oates

ed any news on preston(3)(6)Yes, Preston is being twinned with the Titanic.NO pal its still a dump of a placeWOW! so much jealousy directed at a club minding its own business. We've had a bad time recently, but instead of sitting back bitching about it, we've done something about it and made a few decent signings! I hope your little 'beautiful' towns have a good season.Nice one in the LEP tonight PNE's turnover for the 2010/2011 season was £10.8m.....yearley running costs were £ Hemmings had to cover a loss of £3.7m (or £70,000 a week) just to keep the doors openBet both these with the little digs are from carlise or blackpool who cant even get over 11 k a week on home matchs,but let them be bitter and twisted ,pne top 2 next seasonWow...from 15th and 6 points off relagation to automatic promotion....and the clubs not even played a game.....cast off's from Tranmere & Shrewsbury are not going to get you promotion.....even the Stevenage lads couldnt get through the play offs...middle ranking league 1 more than that nowGary Roberts has today signed for pneCasts off from shrewsbury and tranmere? i think you'll find all the players we signed were offered new deals by their clubs... and the 2 shrewsbury players played pretty much every game in their promotion campaign, the 2 tranmere players, well one was club captain, and the other was their player of the season... if thats what casts off are then god only knows how good players that are signed for a fee are

Wolverhampton can be expecting competition signing the talented Icelandic Björn Bergmann Sigurðarson, from fellow championship rivals Middlesbrough.(11)(10)Join the queue, doesn't mean they will get him! everyone knows he is coming our way! up me babbiesDubbed as one of Iceland's most talented youngsters, and the fastest player from Iceland

Hope boro get this one, we need some pace :) {Ed007's Note - Everton have already held with him, there is a lot of interest.}There maybe alot of interest but both he and his agent have publicly stated his desired chosen destination is molineux. He is almost certain to be Fletchers replacement. So the only deal wrecker will be if Fletcher doesn't go.

Im led to believe that the fee is in the region of £350k, and Crofts looks set to complete his move by by by(3)(14)... never hopefully.By by by --- it will never happen, and never under 1m. think that puts him out of the ipswich budget

You heard it here first, Nigel Adkins is set to be in talks in the up coming weeks with Ince from blackpool as blackpool are thought to be about to accept an offer :D IDK IF THIS IS true its just what i have heard(11)(9)Hope its true
hes going to get better
and better plus he s
youngIs there a player that Southampton are'nt chasing....arent you chasing Nick Powell...he's another player in the you lot just read the Sun and pick a player and pray he will sign for you.Blackpool are the next team to take a nose dive down the league after missing out on promotion. Several key players, as well as a cracking manager are in the spotlight, and who could blame them for leaving, after such disappointment for moving to a big club rather than slog it out for another year in the championship?Where is the Nick Powell link? Why would we pay the apparent £7/8m for a League 2 player?The offer was said buy the sun to be around £2 million plus Jason Puncheon, but i have heard that it will be around 2.5 million for Ince plus PuncheonWhy are Blackpool about to take a nose dive ?
They have one of the best managers in the division that has no intentions of leaving and the players that play for him love it there.
They dont need to sell Ince or Matt Phillips and neither will go, they dont need to sell anyone.
A few additions and they will be Champions.If the right offers come along, Phillips and Ince will leave. However Holloway will replace them and Blackpool will be right up there again. They wont nose dive.Deluded as usual ,small seaside town club, ince and phillips going, closely followed by holloway who wants to manage a big club like swansea...deluded?! certainly are. Blackpool with their current set up are squad are Champions in the making.
While a team you support are in major 'catch up' mode.Trying my best not to laugh at this Ince rumour. What a complete load of rubbish, Ince is going nowhere, do you really think we would sell after one season with us? Dream on!Deluded south coast nobodies with spendthrift owner. Bankrupt in how many seasons I wonder? Twinned with Pompey"Blackpool with their current set up are squad are Champions in the making"...Thats the biggest joke ive seen on here! There are much better teams next season that will compete at the top of the Championship and Blackpool are not one of them. Oh and deluded south coast nobodies? Really? Whos in the Premier League and who has one of the best academies in Europe and CAT 1 Status + state of the art training facilities? Thats right Saints do.

Gary Mills (Manager of York) is keen to form links with Middlesbrough. This could see many more boro youngsters on loan at Bootham cresent. Mills was generally impressed with Ben Gibson. Ben Himself is going to try and become a first team regular at the boro, but york could potentially be offered fringe players Andy Halliday and Richard Smallwood on loan.(1)(5)If true it's a good idea. I would prefer to have Halliday involved in some capacity this season and Smallwood provides good cover, maybes the likes of Cameron Park, Luke Williams and Bruno Palatos etc would be more well suited.

Oxford are set to step up their interest in Kidderminster Harriers front man Jamille Matt as a replacement for the soon to depart James Constable. A fee in the region of £50,000 would secure(1)(8)Is that right? I'm a close friend of Adams he's away on Holiday and from what ive heard he will be signing on when he returns.Who? Oxford are interested in Jon Shaw.Sorry the reply about to do with Chapman was ment for the rumour below.Oxford are only interested in 1 striker from the conferance, and it's that goal machine Jon Shaw!I wonder if Wilder will actually get Shaw.. Looks good! I'd have him at the club

Preston will sign Charltons matt Taylor for 500K(1)(14)No, Preston do not have 500k to spend on one playerAgreed but they appear to want to sign 500k different players this close seasonYes they do av money to spend ,they are owned by one of the riches men in uk ,but cos they got a lot of free transfers everyone thinks they no money ,top two finsh for preston next seasonI bet you could BUY PNE for 500k! True, we don't have any money, we had a rubbish squad, we got rid of it all, we now need decent replacements. I for one think GW has been quite sensible with what he has got. We COULD do what everyone else seems to be doing, go seriously into debt to buy players, but what also happens is if it doesn't work you go bankrupt!Matt Taylor isnt worth that much but he has still been a legend this year! I think he will leave not quick enough for the championship.Why people keep saying no money. We have one of richest owners in englandTaylor would be a solid squad player. Wouldnt start that often in the championship.Why do people say preston have no money they have one of the richest owners in englandI cant see us (Charlton) breaking up a solid back line for the sake of 500K when we would struggle to replace him for that money. Unless we have someone else in mind....yada yada yada

He'd certainly be a good buy for PNE who, I think will do well the coming season.Get back in your box! He signed from Exeter, moved up and only lost his place due to Corts good form.
He's not going to give up a shot in the Champ' only to return to lge 1. No games by mid season and I could beleive it.To be fair to Preston they are just coping what Charlton did last season. Which was just to get everyone out and get a load of new, better players in."To be fair to Preston they are just (Edit)doing what Charlton did last season. Which was just to get everyone out and get a load of new, better players in."

Let's hope that Coutts is out and at the Valley soon. It could be a swap deal, Coutts is not happy at PNE!Seems legit

Shrewsbury Town are set to finally sign Southend United FC player Ryan Hall for £100,000. All these United fans that are claiming he is worth much more are utterly deluded.(5)(5)Source?He probably is worth more money than that, but for however much I hope the rumour becomes true. Come on you blues!!I'm a southend fan i have to agree he's not worth 500k as some southend fans are valuing him at. But i cant see him joining Shrewsbury, yes i know shrewsbiry are a bigger club now than southend but when championship clubs are intrested in him, i doubt he is going to join a club which most probabley will be back in league 2 again next season. Prove me wrong ShrewsburyWhat makes you think Shrewsbury will be in League 2 after next season? They've got a good budget, a very good, experienced manager, good crowds and the foundations of a good team. Think it'll be a mid-table finish.I dont think they will I think they over achieved last year. But I do hope they do finish mid table because they have some great youngstersHow did srewsbury over achieve? we finished 4th on goal difference in 10/11 and now we finish 2nd. not as if we fluked it. Shrewsbury will finish about 12th-18th.Over achieved? top 7 side for last 3 seasons? Unbeaten in 32 home league games... wake up and smell the coffee my friend, you have no idea what you are talking about.Thank god he is leaving the daggers the worst player in the history of the football leagueOnly team in England to be unbeaten all year,thought so ;)I'm sure Southend beat you 3-0!Over acheived. Haaaaaaaa. You must be joking. We where unbeaten at home and played some of the best football in the leagueUnbeaten At home. And they did have 2 very soft penaltysonly team unbeaten team at home all year at home :)You didn't go unbeaten, you went unbeaten at home, there's a big difference, and us southend fans aren't deluded 400-500k is the minimum what the club are looking for no matter how little you think he's worthA player is only worth what a club will pay for him. If you think he's worth 4-500k but clubs will only pay 200k then that is all he's worthWe will just get him on a free next year then.....

Now that LFC have appointed Brendan Rodgers as their new manager I fully expect Iker Munain to be a target. Rodgers is known to be a fan of the 'pass and move' Spanish philosophy and I'm told he is a fan of Munain as well as other youngsters in the Athletic Bilbao side.

InsideR(11)(12)They mighty LFC Brendan Rodgers,bet u win eff all next year or the year after it aint about managers coaches its all about the money money money and a tiny bit of savvy no wonder king kenny got the bump 35 mill ANDY CARROLL . PS AM A CELTIC FAN BUT LOVE KING K BUT ANDY EFFIN CARROLL.Rodgers will flop,not up to a club like liverpool huge gamble.Will take alot more than pass and move to improve carrol,overpaid primadonna who still thinks he is a great,let down a once great club big time.I bet u he's a fan of ronaldo and messi aswell but he won't get them .... I hate the way Liverpool think that the can get all of these world class players like munain, falcao, hulk , cavani and many more like these let's be honest you will never get these players and these players would never want to go to a Liverpool side that is going backwards and getting worseMunian was being offered to major clubs in january at around 40m euros, and whilst i'm sure he'll go for less than that, i sincerely doubt liverpool could a) afford him and b) that he'd go to a club without champions league footballNot going to a team witout CL this year and next, and next,and next............Muniain has a lot of admirers and if Bilbao do decide to sell at some point it will be for a big price but they won't be letting him go any time soon and he was not being offered to big clubs in January

All info has come from an ex-oldham player who is now working as an agent / advisor for players and works closely with the club:

Kelvin Etuhu - contact made, no formal offer as yet as player wants to see whats on offer elsewhere

Reece Brown - talk between Utd and Oldham for another loan move, Utd wanted to give Brown another go at championship level, however if Brown wants to go back, he can do (likely to be decided towards to that of next season)

Steve Howard - not interested

Oumare Tounkara - should be one of the first non-renewal players to sign up within the next 2 weeks (1 year with the option of a 2nd year)

Gary Roberts - talks held, lots of L1 + L2 clubs shown an interest. His agent has been touting his player around for last 3 months.

Andy Taylor - renewed interest from Dickov, player wants to stay around north west, if contract offer suits both parties, player will sign.

Also dickov has spoken to a number of premier league (and recently ex-premier league clubs) about loan players for next season, is on the lookout for a winger/creative midfielder and a right back!

More Info Soon...(1)(10)Would welcome all them players to oldham, would love to see gary roberts in a latics shirt next season.Is david eyres the source by any chanceNever mind is he the source, has he still got a pair of boots ?Roberts is off to Sheff Wednesday.

Scott Sinclair to Liverpool
Adrain Marriappa to Newcastle
Scott Loach to Ipswich
James Collins to Watford
Snodgrass to Villa

Put money on if u can(13)(26)Mariappa is going to ReadingJames Collins is on international duty with Ireland at the moment. Nothing will happen until he's back. Don't think he's made his mind up.Snodgrass not going anywhere, least of all managerless villaBottom 4 yesMariapppa is interesting Reading, and would go there if anyone but i'm still not sure he will go. Loach won't leave. Ipswich has been linked with almost every goal keeper I can name. James Collins is 50/50.Mariappa to Reading is very nearly a done deal. He will have a medical on his return from international duty either tomorrow or Monday.James collins plays for wales........ And why would he go to watford when he starts in the prem! Also ipswich much more likely to go for an out of contract keeper than spashing around a million for loach^ you're the 100th ignorant person to assume that this is the Villa defender.Reading fans need to really calm down, im sure mariappa doesn't want to jump into a deal with reading when im sure theres plenty of better teams considering a move. Its no where near a done deal as they have offer 1.5m far under watford 3m price tagI'd rather not put money on it if Leeds are transfer embargoed and Watford aren't totally insane.
wallyIf only they mean james collins of shrewsbury ! lol you need to apologise to that guy

Reading and maybe Aston villa to make a late bid for Burnleys Jay Rodrigues after finding out £7million will get him. Aston villa are being informed to bid by lambert as he is soon to be unveiled manager. Both clubs are in no rush how ever as Jay rod is out of the country allowing them 7days to inform Burnley of the bid and let Jay rod decide... Very exciting news for a hugely talented YOUNG player with his whole career a head.

For the idiots that repeativily say he's to much and unproven, he's only 22. Not many 22 year olds have experience in the prem but this kid deserves the chance more than anyone. He can score from anywhere!(6)(21)No chance will a club like reading get Jay of usDeal done with southampton fee and personal terms agreed only thing left is medical next weekHe isnt worth 7 millionDone deal he is a saintNo way will he go to Reading, deal with Saints is close to completing.Go to reading be serious they may be in the prem but it is a backward step he is a burnley boy and would only leave to a proper teamWasnt kaspers gorks a done deal with saints until reading called him on the motorway and he came to us?He really can score from anywhere !We didn't want gorksU seriously are deluded I'm a burnley fan when we played saints they were a far better team then reading and be a local lad we all know saints is a done deal good luck saints enjoy your season jay will be a great assett to your teamWe dont want him, 7 mil for average, no thanksGorks was not a done deal with Saints, we didnt go for him. Mostly press that made that up.If he'd go southampton then his standards arent beyond reading, the league champions, are they?Why sign for reading burnley are a much bigger than reading the prem isn't everythingIf jay rodriguez is worh 7 million, how much is jordan rhodes worth? jay rodriguez has scored 35 goals in his career, and jordan rhodes has scored that many this season... and they are both 22. All the people saying rhodes isn't worth 5 million, that doesn't even buy his boots!Jay Rod has scored over 40 goals and in 18 months has become an established Championship player from the youth development team. What's he going to be like in 18 months time when he is 24? Ok it could go either way but seeing him play regularly, the boy is class. You can't buy that class; you either have it or you don't and he has bundles of it. Reading, forget it you have less chance than Southampton. I believe that Jay Rod will be in Claret and Blue at the start of the season, after he has left Burnley and it won't be West Ham. 7 million will be an absolute steal when he is worth 20+ million in two years time.Supply and demand, simples. Only one Jay Rod UTCRodriguez is worth 7+ million and could easily be worth double that if he gets 10+ goals in the premier league which I'm sure he will do given the chance. The lad probably should be better in the air for his size but his finishing and first touch are top notch and his abilty to score from anywhere within 30 yards makes him perfect for the premier league ..To the people who say he is not worth £7 million, he is worth whatever someone will pay for him. It does sound top whack for a lad without an exceptional scoring record but what do i know ive never seen him play.
Wolves fan.He's scored that many goals in League 1. That doesn't mean he can do that in the premiership. More then £2-3 million for a league 1 player is a big risk.The league never lies. Championees!

Reading ain't gonna spend 7 mil on this!Jordan Rhodes is in league 1, jay rod in the championship work out the difference and then why jay is valued more.People read too much into goals to games ratio... he only startred playing regular football 18months ago before the he would be getting a few minutes at the end of games... i'd say about 75% of his apperances came as a substitute and they only lasted a few minutes20million? You serious?Im a big Reading fan and there is no way that we should be signing average players from an average championship club like burnley. jay rod? hahaJay Rod would be an asset to reading, on't be annoyed your linked with him.LMFAO. Reading arent a proper club, what does that make Burnley... a community centre of juveniles. We won the League and have new owners with lots of money. Simply put, young players love ambition so there is no reason why he would not come to Reading. Also he has a better chance of first team football with us considering Southampton have 2 good starting strikers in Sharp and Lambert.Burnley bigger than Reading? in your dreams. I bet in 10 years time Burnley wont be anywhere near the premier league. Dump club and dump of a townAnd in 10 years reading won't b any where the premier league !!

I can confirm that Derby will not be signing anybody from Norway this summer. All of the Rams targets are based in the UK. Here is how things stand at the moment on the transfer front.

Jon Daly, Dundee Utd, £750,000k (Dundee have stalled Derby's offer but the Rams are still interested.)
Johnny Russell, Dundee Utd (Derby had a bid of £750,000k rejected, the Rams have also failed to land Russell via a swap deal with Chris Maguire.)
Michael Jacobs, Northampton, £400,000-500,000k max (Done deal.)
Paul Dixon, Dundee Utd, free (Lost out to Bristol City)
Derby are still after a left back, will be taking Frank Nouble on trial in pre season and will be stepping up the bid to land Daly and another striker within a few weeks.

Steve Davies (Bolton have had a bid of £750,000k rejected as the Rams want 1m. Blackpool have also enquired in to Davies but yet to make a formal bid.)

Chris Maguire ( Sheff Wednesday have had 2 bids rejected with the second being £350,000k in value, Derby want half a million. Couple of other clubs chasing the striker.)

James Bailey ( Blackpool have been sniffing around Bailey but apart from that not much to talk about. Derby would want half a million.)

Miles Addison ( Barnsley, Ipswich, and Bournemouth seem to be the 3 leading the race for Addison's signature. A price tag of £200,000k should be enough.)

Lee Croft ( Derby have told Lee to find another club. Will leave for nothing.)

Jeff Hendrick ( Derby have knocked back an enquiry from Stoke. Nothing else been said on this front.)

Saul Deeney (Will be available for loan. Burton keen along with a couple of Blue Square Bet Premier clubs.)(6)(5)You have got some of that right but
the Norway thing is true if you know Andy Garner you should ask him he said that its only fegor ogude though who hasnt been a main feature for Valerenga this season and can leave the club Ogude had expressed in a local Norway Magazine his desire to play his career in a different league in the future and test himself with a new challenge.Derby were originally Scouting Havard Nielsen but when they got to norway there were other scouts looking at him such as Borrisa Dormunt and OM.Nigel
has decided agianst John daly after thinking it over that 1.he is too old for our young side 2.he wouldnt make it in the premier league 3.hes untested at this level.Derby have made a fresh bid yesterday for Johnny russell which is 700k + Chris Maguire and Callum Ball on loan.This is yet to be accepted.Paul dixon hadnt actually snubbed us we turned down his contract demands.The Lb derby are getting is Joe Mattock is currently on loan at brighton from west brom and is only 21.Derby are looking to get 2 strikers 1 being Russell and they are still looking for another they want either a big target man or a good solid finisher.Derby had made an enquiry about Motherwells Jamie Murphy they told them that hes avaidable at 800,000 but Murphy dosent want to leave after Motherwell have got European Football.

Possible Canidates are

Jamie Murphy
Will Grigg

This is all That has been established but derby might op out of getting a Second striker should anything change with steve davies situation or if any of the young strikers show good progression.

Derby want two wingers as they want to play ward in a Cam posistion or just as backup should an injury happen

Michael Jacobs is a Definate
But they are either going for a young lower league winger such as Daniel powell or John taylor or A more experienced winger in Andrew Driver who wants to leave hearts.

You Missed out a vital Posistion that derby want to get is Centre back cover
with Barker progressing well they only want a young player with games under his belt and Derby have already made an
enquiry with Krystian pearce at Notts county and Karleigh osbourne whos now a Free agent.They want being getting both one or the other.They Both big,strong and really fast for a centre back.

I know this because my Dad works at Derby county as an Accountant and i was the one who told everyone about tom glick leaving for manchester city.
I can try and get as much information as possible but as i was told who derby want could change but Nigel seems very keen on his targets and he has stated that on the Official website.Proof about any of these? ...You've missed 1 vital player leavin derby this summer which is jason shackell to southampton........and i cant see any team wantin miles addison cos he's not good enoughYou won't be getting Jacobs for that amount of money, think again. Boothroyd has already said he wants at least 800-900k!Deeney's off to AlfretonShackell isnt going anywhere hes been asked by like 40 fans and he says the same thing everytime.Im massively enjoying my football here.I love the Gaffers way of playing football and the club has a bright future and i want to be apart of that and im Honoured to be the Stand in Captian.WRONG.... is this the jacobs deal that derby had settled "weeks" ago LOL chalton have put in a bigger bid then you (600k) which was turned down, so what makes you think you've "signed him" already....You know you really shouldn't put '£750,000k', that's £750,000,000. No ones going to be spending that much money {Ed003's Note - 750 billion does seem a lot in this current climate }I agree they have already rejected a 600k for michael bit from an unnamed championship club so why would they accept less than that he wants 800k to 900k for the talented midfielderHeard gossip from around the brit that Stoke are interested in stokie John Brayford (possible player and cash deal with danny collins). Probably just gossip though?


31 May 2012 15:47:46
west brom are going to enquire about grant holt as a possible replacement if peter odemwingie leaves the club this season. they see holt as a cheap replacement as he no longer wants to be part of Norwich. they are hoping to get at least £5 million for odemwingie otherwise he is staying(3)(12)He's staying at Norwich now Lamberts leavingIt would cost no less than 4-5m to convince Norwich to get rid of him. so not really a cheaper option unless you consider wages... and even then hed want more than he's getting now.The holt issues have been resolved and he will stay. i dont think anyone would go if lambo gosThere is going to be a few storys coming out in next week or so. Ive herd that there was a big bust up in chaging room before that poor performance ag liverpool. latest rumour is that ian culverhouse may may not be leaving with lambert.If lambert goes with out culverhouse he will be awful
people dont realise how much of the work he does and i realy hope he stays

also apparently holt fell out with lambert - so if lambert moves, holt wont


31 May 2012 15:33:03
Stoke city are considering a move for manchester city winger adam johnson, but only if manchester city lower their asking price and the winger would accept a pay cut and if their bid for wolves winger matt jarvis is not accepted(17)(15)Stoke tried to take Johnson in January but the move was blocked late in the window. Now Man City want a sale and whilst Stoke are hardly short of money I don't think this is a go-er. A couple of bigger clubs are interested namely Spurs.The above comment is spot on. Stoke City can certainly afford the winger, however the likes of Spurs and Liverpool would put him off a move to the Britannia.If a move to one of the top clubs doesnt come off i would imagine a move back home to the north east would suit himI unfortunately have to agree, he laughed at a move to Stoke last summer, but would be played every week i'm sureMight be a deadline day deal if the move to spurs or liverpool fall through. spurs tend to 'show interest' in almost everyone just to keep their options open, after all who'd sign for stoke whilst there is still the slightest possibility of playing for spurs or liverpool?


31 May 2012 15:06:00
james mcfadden to huddersfield
nathan clarke and naysmith to shrewsbury
beckford to huddersfield
yakubu to celtic(6)(27)McFadden if fit would be good, Beckford, no thanks, poor attitude............. I hear rumours we might be going for all kinds of players from Leeds, just wanna say get real, they would end up getting treated like Alan Smith did V MK Dons, too big a riskMcfadden is getting interest form b'pool
beckford staying at Leicester
Yakubu looks like he is moving to Villa Park for 1.2 millionId settle for that (celtic fan)


31 May 2012 14:51:56
Evertonl looking into a new goalkeeper to put pressure on Tim Howard Huddersfield towns young goalkeeper Alex smithies is a likely target as Tim told American newspapers he would like to play in America in a couple of years. TB(3)(12)Heard this too going for about 2.5 million great young prospectTake him he's st. So overrated


31 May 2012 14:49:28
Liam Dickenson set to re join Brighton from Southend(1)(20)Brighton nightclubs have missed him since he was shown the door but they are the only ones who haveCome on you having a laugh, been here done that, failed and booted out why would we want a has been back, keep the bench warm like before or make the tea.Big GHe's only interested in a move up north anyway


31 May 2012 14:47:10
Shrewsbury are currently in transfer negotiations with Huddersfield defender Nathan Clarke.(5)(6)Ba little difficult to negotiate with Huddersfield seeing N. Clarke is a free agent!!Clarke was Released and is a free agentSounds like Shrewsbury are buying the whole of the football league the amount of rubbish rumours you are coming out with. Shrewsbury are a small club with small crowds and no way will you be signing all these players you lot keep spouting off about.Pretty sure our average attendence in the last 4 seasons have have been better than half of league 1.Ex Huddersfield defender....... would be a great signing for em imoWe have good crowds i thank you!A bitter Southend fan? we are signing this guy for sure,i'll put my savings on it.Joe hart, grant holt, dave edwards,marc tierney not bad as they all came from a small clubHe's a good lad, hope he does well for you.Yeah 5500-6000 is tinpot.
Southend released there top goalscorer and claim Shrewsbury have no ambitionSouthend haven't released their top goalscorer?Put your life savings on it and watch when you are homeless by the end of the transfer window (that's if your not already homeless).Liam Dickibson is gone so yeah


31 May 2012 14:45:47
Brian Jensen has rejected a contract extension at promotion favourites Burnley to join Oldham where he will gain more first team football(5)(12)Promotion favorites? lmao - like seriously am hereWhat a load of bullhonkie! Why would Oldham go for an aging keeper way past his best when we've got 2 quality young goalkeepers.Promotion favourites? haha UNBELIEVABLEOldham just had to release half their team and sell a key player they can't afford his wagesWhich key player we sold then ?Taylor to millwallAwkward moment when someone calls Chris Taylor a 'Key player'. He's awful! no where near championship standard!


31 May 2012 14:43:45
Tottenham are preparing to start a squad overhaul with Redknapp targeting 7 players with numerous players departing.

Yakubu, Blackburn, £1m (shock I know but Harry knows he'll get 15+ goals from him and he's cheap.)
Gary Hooper, Celtic, £10m (Will win the race for the striker after matching Celtic's valuation.)
Gylfi Sigurðsson, Hoffenheim, £6.8m
Christian Eriksen, Ajax, £17.5m
Mats Hummels. Dortmund, £13m + Gallas
Ola Toivonen, PSV, £8m
Ben Foster, Birmingham, £4m

Gallas, as part of the Hummels deal.
Van Der Vaart, Schalke, £9m
Dos Santos, Reading, Boca, CSKA, £5m+
Niko Kranjcar, Reading, Hoffenheim, Shakhtar, £5.5m(9)(41)I agree with some but sigurdson not happening and van der vart will not leaveHooper 10 mil.. nah.. will be like when he bought Nugent from north end for 6 mil with portsmouth

christian erikson is worth more than hummels :S since when?

and van der vaart out for 9 mil yes you ........Van der vaart will go for 10+Most of this is false, not going to happenDream on you silly spud.Cant see the signing hooper for 10 mil ba would be a better option at 7 milOmg deluded spurs as per your looking at 25 mill for both hummels and ericksen 13 mil plus gallas pmsllNone of these transfer ins will happen.Hummels is unlikely, Dortmund were German champions and have Champions League football next season. Plus top German players generally stay in Germany, Metsacker and Podolski are 2 recent exceptions, but then they also have Champions League football which is important for maintaining a spot in the national teamIf spurs want to play in champions league again i doubt some of these will happen. hooper only played in scotland and spurs would be after more better strikers and same as yakubu might be cheap but not the quality for champions leagueIf all of this is true then it is typical Redknapp, just spend and spend, have no tactical plan and just buy players.Hooper would be the best striker at the club if he went to Spurs (not counting Adebayor obviously)...better than defoe and saha, but I dont see anyone in England paying £10million for himBig celtic fan if arry is thick enough to gee us 10 mill fur hoops, magic,but hes better than a lot of EPL fans think.Rafael van der vaart will not leave as he said he is happy at spurs even though they never made the champions league,and a bid for 9mil that is a piss take rafa worth atheist 15 mil or more,Remy will join spurs as he has had a medical,jan vertonghen deal nearly complete,adebayor looks like he wont be joining spurs to much wages as for jenas,dos santos,gallas,modric they will leave modric to Chelski for 47mil u herd it here first,and demba ba to spurs for 12mil agood bargain,but will Harry stay or go !!!I thought you were after brazil striker
LeonardoHooper hasnt only played in scotland celtic bought him from Scunthorpe.If hes going anywhere in england my guess is Southampton as Hooper know atkins well from his Scunthorpe daysEriksen is going Bayern
Hummels why would he leave champions
league football and in a team that has the best up and coming youngsters e.g
gotze and bender.If a fee such as 7 million has been payed for Jay Rod from Burnley expect to have to pay up to 30 million for him as hes only 23 thats like well young for a defender who is already seen as a German InternationalModric to chelsea? I definately didn't hear that one here first. You're about a year late!Being a Reading fan, I will say that there is no way Foster will go Spurs. He will stay at WBAIt is GylfiHooper is easily in the top 4 English strikers. He would walk the EPL but the mongs down south don't believe that until he proves himself there.

Andy Carroll looked good for Newcastle when they got promoted, eh? £35 million flop. Hooper is just one of those guys that knows where to be and finishes the chance whether it's pretty or not. His overall game is strong and has significantly improved. Once he does prove himself, you'll all be tounging his arse. Same old with English folk.

Hooper and Holt upfront would be dominant. Give them a bloody chance - they'd do sensational for you guys in the Euros! Crouch, Carroll and Defoe? Lol.... Absolute nonsense!Have you forgotten jan vertonghen? and van der vaart for 9m to schalke will never ever happen


31 May 2012 14:39:35
Just heard from sheffield utd that lowton and maguire are discussing terms with Ipswich. Would be sad to see our 2 best young players go.(9)(13)Why did Danny Wilson give you a ring just to let you know?I'm an Ipswich fan, and I would love to see both of these players come to Portman Road. However I know that these two are very highly rated at Sheffield Utd and they would be reluctant to sell them. Plus I can see them costing much more than Paul Jewell would be willing to pay.Dont think we would sign another RB after signing Hewitt. Would love this rumour to be true though.Lowton can also play centre back.


31 May 2012 14:37:42
Burnet entered talks with Bristol city for pitman with 400k being excepted. Also Burnley are preparing a 2million pound bid for derby deffender shackell(5)(8)2 million? you're joking right? if Matt Mills was worth 5, then Shackell's worth at least double that£400k for Pitman? I doubt that very much. Bristol City paid more than that without Pitman having any Championship experience. I can see Pitman leaving but not at that valuationCity paid £800k for him - the fee will be £1m+Davies from bolton has been realsed so if yu wanna play for a free player that is brilliant but injury prone go ahead. hes got a good footballing mind as seen in 1 game he played for bristol city


31 May 2012 14:32:59
Bradford city to sign Mike grella today. he is having a medical.Also 2 x ex city favourites are speaking to the club....andy o brien and jermane johnson.
Luke oliver and simon ramsden will decide this week if they are signing or not.Guy branston told to lokk for another heard it here first.(8)(11)Ha Ha some you know nothing about who we are signing it is not any of the names above i know who but you will have to watch this spaceOBrien won't happen as he is looking for too much money, JJ is a posibility and i know we have offered him a deal, but he has other clubs also looking at him so he is weighing up his options. Grella or Gray not both, but PP would prefer Grella and again a deal has been offered.

Mcardle at Aberdeen has also been approached but Shrewsbury are also in for him.Obrien has asked for a bit too much money but has gone away to think about it,but jermaine loved his time here and could be a big possibility he will come,,,,,,,,i know coz i know them both personally !!! and grella is almost a done deal.


31 May 2012 14:26:19
Yeovil town manager gary johnson is set to swoop for released ex sheffield united keeper steve simonson on a 1 year contract to solve his goalkeepng woes. cr(5)(6)Dont let him take penaltiesCant afford him
DevonGreenCome on guys we support the same team, be nice to each other. He is a solid guy. People have mentioned him before. How many people do you guys reckon we need to have a full squad, either loans on contracted players who belong to us.Could be yeovils new penalty kick taker. looks good from 12 yeards .heheI think he will be a fantastic signing johnson has said he wants a few experienced players and he would be able to persuade him


31 May 2012 14:26:10
Port Vale want to sign former Shrewsbury Town striker Kris Bright as a replacement for Marc Richards. Kiwi international Bright is currently playing in Norway with Byrne BK, but wants to return to playing in England.(5)(1)Vale can have Kris Bright.... he'll get you about 3 goals in 3 years.This must be a wind up - he was truly awful for us.Not sure about bright but Liam Dickinson attracting big interest from Micky Adams who he sees to lead his new look strike force next season after the departure of Marc Richards. Dickinson held positive talks with Adams and will sign very soon.Heskey for port vale player coachWhere the hell has posted this?
you think a quality player like hesky would come vale for a couple of hundred quid?
dream on boy


31 May 2012 14:19:40
Izale McLeod was spotted at Home park at Plymouth Argyle ready for talks with Carl fletcher and james brent to with sign the club and is expected to be signed be next monday with him discussing his contract and medical(12)(12)Is this actually true??LaughableHope so anyway... would be an excellent signingWeren't Peterborough and Palace interested? Would be surprised if he signed for us, would love to think this is true though!McLeod would score goals because he was barnets top scorer with about 15-20 goals so would be an ideal signing to up front , I would like to see Jennings as well


31 May 2012 14:11:38
Shrewsbury Town are about to sign goalkeeper Steve Simonsen, recently released by Sheffield Utd. Manager Graham Turner wants an experienced keeper to challenge present number 1 Chris Neal, who has yet to sign a new contract.(5)(4)What was chris neal like like season in nets?Wages too high.Neal had a good year but makes silly errors


31 May 2012 14:10:29
Burton Albion assistant manager Kevin Summerfield recommends the club sign goalkeeper Joe Collister after his release from Tamworth.
Summerfield knows the player from his time at Tranmere(4)(3)He will be decent for burton in that divisionFrom a rovers point of view he is a great keeper and only 20 or 21 i think and very promising and was wrongfully released"he...was wrongfully released"

Who by? Telford? The guy is far too small to be a professional goalkeeper


31 May 2012 14:01:56
Rodgers has been offered total control at Liverpool, which Martinez was refused. This is bound to increase the Spaniard's determination to succeed at a bigger club. Dave Whelan is ecstatic that he's keeping his manager, but don't expect Martinez to hang around at Wigan much longer.(11)(10)Rodgers is a better manager and is thought of in a higher regard more than martinezI would have pressed believable if it wasnt for that las sentanceRodgers has been givern control, but for public consumption only, behind the public face, every major desision over personal will have to be cleared with FSG. {Ed001's Note - rubbish.}Rodgers or martinez,says it all who is in controll of liverpool,once a great club,but now in decline,wait and see what the fans think of the yanks latest cockup.


31 May 2012 14:01:13
The former reading player that they want back is not gylfi it is Shane long(12)(4)Believable but wnt happenOr could it be Hunt??Where is this info from. i could understand them wanting long but they wouldn't get hime back so soon. i herd from a good source it was the sigI've heard shane is the one they want I never said they will get him I feel this will drag with WBA having no manager and any new manager would want to asses Shane before accepting / rejectingThe player is gylfi sigurdson as we have already placed a 6.8 million pound bid for him . Long could also leave as both players have a strong personal relationship with everyone at the club and especially Brian McDermott .Could be true as long still had his house in Newbury. (my mate was his next door neighbour until he went to WBA ) I don't think long is needed personally, great player last season for us but better strikers available for less....


31 May 2012 13:59:53
All this talk about West Brom bei g the best team in the midlands is actually a joke. for its a fact that Reading finished 8th one season and went down the next, Blues finished 9 th one season same tho g happened to them it is also a fact that in the midlands both villa wolves and forest have more silverware and bigger fanbases and grounds than. Baggies! So you rest on the lorrel of your little tenth place finish. Because how long will it last without hodgson and pet odemwingie wants out?(6)(9)You are only as good as your finishing position. Fact is WBA finished above AV and as such are and will remain the best team in the Midlands. AV are on that slippery slope. Martin O'neil could see it happening!Best joke ive heard in a long time.but then facts are facts west brom are the best team in the midlands.exept for villa the other teams are in the fizzy pop leagueReading aint the midlands odem wants out fine with the new appointments at villa n liverpool look no further than those fighting to stay up we know our limits and expectations clubs like you don't ya think you have the god given right because who you think ya are but don't work that way bigger n better clubs have gone forrest leeds need i go onTake it your a bitter Wolves or Villa fan? and Reading did have a good finish one season and went down the next and so did Hull I think....but West Brom have had 2 in a row now and have steadily improved since the day Gary Megson took over!Oh do they mmm look where wolves forrest villa are now shadows from them great days bet your team am the dbs tooWhat a typical dingle or vile fan. trying to make your team out to be the best when they were the two worst teams down the hawthornes last season along with QPR and Blackburn. Up the baggies! the best team in the midlands for everPretty sure Stoke are the most consistant Midland team of late ie the last 3 seasons. Very little between Stoke and West Brom to be fair but both better than the dire VillaTry and not forget that stoke are in the midlands and have had 4 seasons now going onto season 5 in the prem , never looked like relegation fodder , had good cup runs and europa league run. we did loose to WBA for the first time in years but not to the top 6 at home . possible contender i feel ?This made me laugh, WBA did have been a strong force this past seoason, but i still remember when PNE beat them 5-1 when paddy agymang scored that overhead kick - QUALITY -Odemwingie can go, he's poorTypical jelous fan. can bear but watch the best midlands team in the world climb higher and higher becoming an established premier league team. wolves have just appointed a manager who is unknown to us all and villa are getting rejected by every manager left right and centreNo need for jealousy , let Albion have they're back to back seasons of good finishes. It may not last but they are playing well at the moment and deserve to be where they finished. Coming from a villa fan like myself I'm happy for themWolves fan here, I hope to god the original poster was a vile as any wolves fan with sense wouldn't have put that. Odemwingie will not be a big loss I promise you yes he scored a hat trick but he shudve scored 7 or 8. You may be the best team ATM but historically wwfc are a better club fact!Bit sour from a fellow sulking villan, dingle or blue nose!The fact that Nottingham forest won trophys in the Aztec times makes no difference to who's the best team now. If the mighty Wolves and Villa are the best, why can't they beat us? and as for Nottingham, we're out of their league...literally.I'm a wolves fan and as much as it pains me too say it albion are currently the best team in the midlands, however saying that they are not the biggest! They have to be behind Villa and Wolves. Would say their a bigger club than the blue noses though!Villa,big city club,wolves ,big city club,baggies,small town club,huge fanbases for the city clubs ,35,000 average villa,
27,000 average wolves ,25,000 average baggies, yeah really massive clubs villa and wolvesSaying that wba are the best team in the midlands is like saying drogba or ronaldo dont dive!!!!!!!Wolves fan here, simply put, Albion are the best Midlands team at the minute, no arguing with that, we were shocking last season, but Albion have had seasons like that aswell in the past where Wolves have done well(ish), as for being bigger I think Wolves just edge it, but its not as clear as it has been...


31 May 2012 13:50:32
Crawley Town are interested in James Beattie acording to his agent.(11)(12)No disrespect to Crawley but that's about his level when fit but he doesn't stay fit. Id say avoidCould happen and would be a good signing COYRCan someone tell me why this guy is still playing,been missing for a decadeThere's a difference in being interested and going out to ask him to come and him signing.

I'm sure Crawley would be interested in signing Tevez too if you asked them.


31 May 2012 13:41:45
Chapman is hoping to leave Oxford if another team is prepared to come in for him, he has been stalling on a new contract at OUFC because the current offer is far short of what he is insisting on. The club seem to be using the fact that they stood by him during his prison sentence as a bargaining chip. Chapman feels that he should be given an offer comparable with the other players at the club and that although he appreciates all the club have done for him he does have a right to earn a fair wage. this could have a bitter ending!!(6)(3)Friend of Adams and he is resigning at Oxford. Will be done when he gets back from holidaySo Oxford United stand by Chapman while he is in prison and now he is going to leave, discraceful!Hopefully he re-signs!And how would Adam Chapman know what other players earn?!?!
Players don't go round telling each other!
He's on holidayThere is something to this rumour, not only as this become one hell of a long holiday but it seems we are only a back-up plan for him. It does appear that if something else is offered he will be gone. By telling his so called "Freinds" and others connected with us that he is resigning it keeps us all happy if he does have to resign, he can't very well say "I'm off if someone comes in but I suppose I'll stay if they don't" can he? He really is hoping that another team comes in for him. Lastly..of course players talk about their wages to each other!!...sharing hotel rooms, changing rooms and socialising together will ensure somethings are spoken about, especially if you are concerned you may not be getting as much as others (As in this case).


31 May 2012 13:41:21
Dont no if there is any truth in this but word in dundee is blackpoool are about to table a 1.5 bid for Gary Mackay-Steven of dundee united ?(10)(2)In todays prices a bargain,this is a future top player.Ince or phillips replacemetnAnd he is a lot better,with more potential.


31 May 2012 13:23:07
Matty Blair and James Meredith from York to Watford(2)(8)Saw them against Mansfield in the Playoffs. Better than Conf. but not good enough for the ChampionshipWould prefer mansfield's, on loan defender Exodus Geoghegan


31 May 2012 13:17:46
West Ham looking almost certain to sign Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale as the replacement to Robert Green who looks like is leaving for West Brom(13)(13)Definately do not want Robert Green to come to the baggies. The guy cant stop a rolling ball. he lets it go straight through his legs. he may be an ok number 4 for us. we need to sign Ben Foster asapWhat, so Green makes one mistake for England 2 years ago and so you don't want him? Get real. Green is a top keeper. {Ed001's Note - one mistake? He has been awful for years.}You might get Stocky on loan, if you ask nicelyYes That's true I absaloutly think he is one of the worst England keepers ever. Even Scott Carson is better then him. And that's saying something


31 May 2012 13:13:38
Sam Allardyce has given a 25 man shortlist of players that he is interested in signing. He would like to sign at least 5 players with a goalkeeper, centre back, central midfielder, a winger and a striker being the priorities.

Robert Green is stalling over a new deal and will leave to join QPR if his wage demands are not met. Several goalkeepers are being considered to replace Green, including Jaaskelainen, Gordon, Almunia, Fabianski and Stockdale. It is believed that Stephen Henderson will begin the season as No.1, with the new goalkeeper acting as back up.

With Abdoulaye Faye being released, a new centre back is also needed. Jonas Olsson is Allardyces main target, with Scott Dann, Ryan Nelsen, Carlos Cuelllar and Roger Johnson other possibilities. George Mccartney is expected to sign a permanent deal with the club after impressing last season on loan.

A central midfielder is also wanted by Allardyce. Lansbury has returned to Arsenal and is not expected to sign permanently. Nigel Reo Coker is one possibility, but Sam Allardyce is aware that many fans would be opposed to this move. Other possibilities for midfield are Benayoun, Joe Cole and Peter Whittingham. Sam Allardyce also held talks with Clarence Seedorf about a 1 year deal after the soccer aid match last weekend, but it is understood that Seedorf would prefer to remain in italy.

A bid of around £4.5m has been made for Zaha, but it is understood that Crystal Palace want £8m. A player exchange deal is a very real possibility. Other wingers that may be targets are Jarvis, Richardson, Kightly and Moses.

A £1.2m bid has been made for Yakubu, this is likely to be confirmed within the next 5 days. However if this does not go through, Saha and Michael Owen will be pursued. Allardyce is also hopefully of signing Das Bost. A £7.5m bid was rejected but it is understood that WHU are willing to pay up to £10m.

Sam Baldock is likely to leave the club on loan. Freddie Sears, Pablo Barrera, Fred Piquionne and Robert Green are all likely to leave.(13)(7)Rob Green is joining Malaga...big wages...and will be the number 1 keeper as Cabalero is getting on and Kohmeni is not as good as he was a few years ago.Why would Stockdale go to west ham to be number 2? - heck, it would be a risk for him to go there as first choice !Rob Green is going to QPR even as sad as it makes all fans (myself included)

Adrian Mariappa - Watford
[Undisclosed fee accepted, medical set to take place next week when Mariappa is back from holiday]

Chris Gunter - Nottingham Forest
[Undisclosed bid was rejected last week, no improved offer made so far]

Matthieu Chalmé - Bordeaux

Andrew Johnson - Fulham
[Available on free transfer, in discussions but speaking to other clubs]

Gylfi Sigurdsson - Hoffenheim
[Situation is being monitored, no discussions with Hoffenheim have taken place, the club are prepared to match the 7m bid from Swansea]

That's all the news. There are a number of other players being looked at but no official approaches or bids.

Potential Players Out:-

Michail Antonio
[350k offer rejected by Sheffield Wed]

Simon Church
[Serious interest from Bolton and Leicester]

Sean Morrison
[Approach has been made by Huddersfield, all i know]

Brynjar Gunnarsson is in discussions to stay at Reading and join the coaching staff on a 1 year contract.(11)(21)Seems like a very plausible post. ImpressiveThat's funny because Watford have rejected Reading's only bid and Mariappa isn't on holiday!Cannot see Bertrand leave Chelsea and you will not get Sigurdsson.Actually Gunters bid was 2m Johnson won't join everyone at reading hates him and reading won't have to match a bid for Sigurdsson as they get a % of his sell on fee so if its matched hoff get around 2/2.3m more more readingDoesn't Adrian Mariappa have a say in all this? Chances are he will jump for Premiershp football, but he may not and another club may have put in a less public attept at de-stabling offer.Fingers crossed for Gylfi!Mariappa's been on International dutyCan not see butters going to readingThe Mariappa deal is very nearly done. He will complete a medical when he returns from international duty.Can Reading fans quit dreaming over Sigurdsson , Just because he started his career at Reading does not mean he will be returning to you. He will eithur be a Swansea, Liverpool or Spurs player. He isn't going to join a team which are more than likely to be relegated next year.We want sean morrison! we want sean morrison! prem player in the makingYou'll get none of them players why would they sign for reading every one of those players are at a bigger club nowI think you will find mariappa is on international duty with Jamaica. Do your homework before putting up false rumours. I know their has been interest in mariappa.We have put in a bid for Sigurdsson. That's confirmed. He will join unless Liverpool make a move.Reading have bid for Sigurdsson, but he wont join you..There will be bigger clubs after him...Reading fans need to seriously move on from this. He will want to further his career, wont do that by joining Reading.He was prepared to join Swansea who are on the same level as Reading so to say he wouldn't further his career with us is silly.These players won't sign for a tiny club like readingMay i also add that i tmay in fact be due to his previous experience of a big club in the form of hoffenheim that will turn him away from it, all top teams i reckon are ruled out as hed be a bench player, apart from at liverpool, and if he goes there, him + gerrard could make a formidable team with no real challenge for his spot, but a move to reading also looks likely due to sell on clauses etc and the fact that the club now has the financial backing + ambition to become a top uk club and play champions league footie and well its an exciting club to be at at the moment, swansea is looking less likely by the day where as not too long ago it was a sure thing and well can't see him going to a team like villa or anything.He would be silly joining Reading, he will end up being a Championship player in a years time.Watford rejected a bid for marriappa and im sure he'd be looking to move to a better club who won't be going straight back downHow much money do u think u have......

To all those who think there team is signing JACK HUNT (hudds town) think again, just signed contract extention until 2014(18)(3)Plus an option for a further 1 year as wellRooney signed a new contract fr everton before he left for united, so doent mean nothin pal sorryChris solly...far superior.He's hardly Rooney. Chris Solly? Jack Hunt every time!Granted any player can/will move clubs in any transfer window, usually at the first SMELL of more money, my point is its nice to see a sortafter young lad showing comitment to a long term plan. (he even sign'd b4 town gianed promotion) so SORRY pal, that WILL mean alot to most TOWN fans. AG

Bostwick to peterborough should be comfilm early next week fact ........(8)(13)For how much. I doubt Stevenage would accept anything below £1M-£1.5M as they do not need to sell and Bostwick is under contract.Not fact. not happened...Just what Peterborough need - young,big, strong and physical. Trouble is in the play-offs he didn't look like he could pick out a decent pass.They do need to sell as Bostwick as he's in he's last year ! Over a million for 2 players not sure who 2ed player is at the min thinking Wilson or freeman !

Ex Crystal Palace hot-shot Calvin Andrew to sign for Leyton Orient this week.

Russell Slade will also look to bring in a versatile forward who can drop back into midfield when necessary, but his number one goalscoring priority is Andrew.(12)(7)If we sign him i rip up my season ticketThis has to be a fking joke!! 1 he is not a hot shot 2 he doesn't score!! If he is the signing they are down!Hot shot :LIf andrews is going to be our new goalscorer we will go down and also can someone tell me the last time andrews actually scoredI bet this guy saying andrews is going to orient is the same guy who wrote the othersand is a southend or daggers fan trying to anoy orient fansHot-shot? since when?He's not too bad c'mon guysClearly a wind up, don't bite.If this is the case, I'm boycotting the whole season. What a farceOrient hope to sign Tommy Caroll on a year long lone, to replace Mathew Spring
who is having talks with CreweHot-shot......don't think that's quite the phrase to describe Andrews.Why oh why do we sign players who turn up being costly and bit of a lame duck

Northampton town have at last been given the green light to redevelop sixfields stadium after ten long years.
Plans are to include a twenty thousand capacity stadium,hotel,shops and a factory making trousers for the larger man.
Northampton town are about to make giant strides!!(4)(8)Why do you want a bigger stadium you cant even fill the one you've got.Your pulling my legWe have had a few bad seasons and still up there with the top attendances, promotion this season will see all seats filledWhy would you want a 20 thousand seater stadium wehn you only average 4,300The councils only concern is the re-generation of the town centre, else they would have allowed this years ago"why would we want a 20k seater stadium".... maybe because we can afford it, its called a moving on, & up

Darren Huckerby will be back in England this summer. Both Sheffield clubs have confirmed interest with Wednesday being favourites. But he's expressed his desire to play for the Blades!(6)(25)Of course he as because he aint capable of
playing in the championship so a lower level
team would be suitableHe retired two years agoHe could barely keep up in the MLS 3 or 4 years ago what makes you think he could play in the Championship.He can go to the blunts for me .no championship quilityHuckerby retired and now living in USHe doesn't live in the US he lives in NorrfolkHe kept up very well in the mls having more impact then Beckham, however he retired die to hip injury

Reading HAVE snapped up the oppurtunity to bid for Siggurdson. This is great news for Reading Fans as the young icelandic has strong ties with the club.

The Swans are now going to be in a fight to keep players with Rodgers leaving them and wanting to take some players with him.(10)(14)You won't get him a lot of prem teams want him so he wouldn't go to the prem smallest clubReading small. Haha. Swansea got him. (almost)! And they are a massive club arnt they. You are now cannon fodder. Your players will leave. Brendan's gone. And we get the gulf back. Hey the rest you can keep. Swansea. Now officially a championship. Side.Did u see the news the other day... READING JUST GOT TAKEN OVER BY TSI!!!!! so accutly we aren't the smallest club in the premReading fans have small club syndromeBecause he loves us. Gylfi is the player he is because of Reading. If we had zero ties to him then maybe I could understand your point but you clearly don't know anything about Gylfi.Except maybe that's half the point, at Reading he'd make starting line up easy, he also still loves the club so who knows, we have our perks too, and since he spent alot of his time on the bench at hoffenheim i doubt he'll want to join a massive club, with the exception of liverpool cause of rodgers.I think you underestimate his connections with Reading. When he left the club he said he ideally wanted to play in the Premier League with Reading but unfortunately he left because the club needed money at the time.Swansea have proper home and away support yours is embarrassing lufcThere will be bigger clubs after him who have chances to win things, I think he will choose success over Reading.Cant believe Reading fans think their club is massive! lolLol Siggurdson will join a bigger club than Reading. And if he was joining any small club he would join Swansea.

I support Southampton and am totally impartial, but he will either stay put or move on to bigger and better things, sorry Reading."lol sig will join a bigger club than reading...I support SHampton and totally impartial."

First of all you're hardly impartial when you support a rival team to the one being mentioned who may be getting a brilliant player in.

Second of all it also means you have no idea about the connection The Sig has with the club. People seem to underestimate his connection with his former club. He was only sold in the first place because the club needed the money and he ideally wanted to play for Reading if they ever got into the premier league.We r now the 8th richest club in the world so not exactly a small fry.You are not the 8th richest club in the world! Get over yourselves!....A lot of the money your owner has is tied up in other businesses and assets, its not yours. Reading is just another business on this guys list. You will never have the spending power of a big club.Having a rich owner doesn't stop you being "small fry".

You are one of the smallest clubs in the prem. And Swansea have proven they can survive in the prem so are a preferential club to sign for. Either that or he will move on to bigger and better things, Reading are not bigger or better... YET. Don't take it so personally that a newly promoted club aren't beating better established teams to big signings! It's not jealous, it's not petty mocking, it's just fact. Good luck and hopefully for you you will sign him, but players tend to either stay put or go to better/bigger clubs, regardless of ties they have with another club. Sorry but maybe in a couple of years (or even one season) you will be able to compete in the market with most prem teams, but currently you are a newly promoted team and you will need to be a lot more tactile and creative in your signings and in staying up. It's a simple fact, not an insult - you should be proud that people are at least sitting up and taking your rival 'bid' seriously, not just laughing it off. But being realistic... it's unlikely Siggurdson will go to you.

And a couple posts above.. since when have Southampton and Reading been rivals more than any other teams in the league? News to me.Lol at other teams jealous that reading have 10x more money than they do:pReading dont have 10x more money, just because the owners have money doesnt mean it belongs to Reading. Some serious big heads around!

Burton Albion to sign midfielder Robbie Weir from Tranmere(6)(4)Burton fan here is robbie weir any goodNot for our level, but I'm sure he'll do well in League 2. He gives the ball away far too much, and is a bit weak, however he wasn't given a great deal of game time after Ronnie Moore took over. Good luck for next season!Good player, i was sorry to see him releasedSte at our level but think he will do an ok job for youYes, robbie weir is a class act, should never have been released (tranmere fan)Good start to the season but at the end played terrible. should do well in league 2.Average at bestYes it was a bit harsh that he got released tbh.He is and he can get the odd goal aswellHe was ok at times and works hard but not a stand out player


31 May 2012 11:26:01
Apparently from a reliable source, oldham are ready to sell the club to a multi millionaire businessman from hong kong. May not be true but just saying what I have heard(4)(8)Who is the reliable source?Doubt it!! But if it turns out to be true, it'll be the 1st bit of good luck we've had in yearsWhatever , why you trying to raise our hopes like that, were stuck with ebeneezer until he can sell the landOldham not being taken over pal, been told 3 investers coming on board in september,all 3 are local buis men. Probably a load of ste what we got told but been right in the pastIm sorry if ive raised hopes and it ends up not happening but I found this out from a mate of mine who got got told by an ex player and who works closely with latics and thought I would put it on! Really hope it happens though

A very reliable source has just told me that ben foster will sign a 3 year deal at west brom for a fee believed to be £4.3 milion.

Ollson is all so believed to be putting pen to paper once he is back from the championships.(10)(6)Dont know why people are clicking unbelievable! What, cause Foster is linked with Spurs and QPR means he will definately leave? doubtful! he said he wants to join Albion and wont leave the midlands...end of! and if albion appoint this ralf roughneck guy his reputation will be enough to persuade Olsson to stay!This is what i posted yesterday that Ollson will sign a new contract. i am a reliable source


31 May 2012 11:20:05
Scottish utility man Ryan Mcguffie in talks with Rotherham, Oxford and Aldershot.
If you dont know him, think Ben Davies of Shrewsbury / Notts county / Derby etc
Can play RB, RM or CM. excellent dead ball specialist.
30 years old and available on a free.
Previous clubs include Gretna, Forfar and Queen of the South.(3)(3)Why don't county sign him then?
they could do with some players.
pne have signed 13 this month, county have signed noneHe's not very good.Read it properly!! The guy is saying that Mcguffie is in talks with Oxford and two others!!...he say's that if you do not know who Mcguffie is then think of Ben Davies because they are it and you'll see that Davies played for PNE / County etc....not that they are after Mcguffie!!
Jeez....and they Oxford mob gloat about their educational facilities!! Maybe they should try using them!!If he is as good as Ben Davies he wouldnt be going to league 2.No one said he was as simply gives the impression that the players are in style etc!!

Paul Lambert is leaving, inevitable. We will get Malky back from and save him from Cardiff. He will bring Whittingham with him for around £2M and also try to snatch a deal for Rodriguez (he tried tosign him at Cardiff). Heads up Norwich fans, yes we've lost Lambo but the return of the king will happen. In Malky We Trust #IMWT(20)(22)Any new manager will have to sell first as that is why Lambert is leaving. He was told there is little money to buy, and club wants to focus on the debt so doubt you'll be getting these players yet. Source Sky Sports NewsAnd Norwich have at least £7m to spend on Rodriguez?You're not getting Malky. end of.
and what do you mean "save him from Cardiff"? Whittingham is worth at least £5m, not 2, and the fact of the matter is our owners are giving Malky full backing, why would he want to leave?Steve Bruce is still jobless!I think if malkey goes he will damage his reputation hes totally unloyalLambert has handed in his resignation, thank you lambo! and malky would be great for us in the premier league, also the club have stated no players need to be sold we have the financial backing to just buy players to strengthen the club.

SOURCE: official norwich city websiteWhy would he leave I hear you say? Probably because Norwich are in the premier league and judging on the efforts over the last few years, Cardiff will NEVER get there!Ahh How much Money did Norwich spend last summer Ahh ? Not a lot ! Whittingham is a 5m player at least ! Just signed a new contract ! Rodriguez is off to the Southampton ! Malky is saying ! So .. no heads up for Norwich fans !Why would he join Norwich? Because he's a legend and in the PLDo Norwich have around £5mil to spend on releasing Malky from his contract which he signed in February.Norwich have no money? the following is straight from the clubs website:

"Meanwhile, contrary to some media speculation, the Club does not need to sell any players and the finances are in place to substantially strengthen the excellent squad which helped us finish in 12th position in the Premier League last season."Steve Bruce, Martin O'Neil, Lee Clarke or Malky pleasPleaseBring back Nigel WorthingtonSky sports means nothing, until a club statement is made no one knows anything, whether it's to do with Lambert or Malky. stop your bickering. P.S. Malky would probably leave for his old club...What do you mean save him cardiff are a good club with lots of potential and good backing go away norwich fansThere's a reason why Steve Bruce is at the job centre.I just hope Lambet leaves Ian Culverhouse behind, I belive a lot of Norwich's sucsess is down to him......forget Malky and Bruce...Culverhouse is a genius, but not quite ready for the head managerial role. him + Malky =Malky isnt an experienced enough manager to do us justice in the premier league.Just a query but is there a motorway to Norwich yet??Neil lennon is being heavily linkedMegson or Bruce for you please!'Malky isnt an experienced enough manager to do us justice in the premier league'.

He only has to do one season with you then in the PremierA relegation battle with norwich or a promotion battle with cardiff hard choiceNorwich are hardly going to say we have no money to the fans are they? That would make alot of clubs interested in better players paul lambert walked out cos theres no moneyMalky will not leave! If he does I will hate him!Gutted norwich fans culverhouse is leaving as well

Teddy Sheringham is looking to take on a coaching role at Huddersfield Town.
This could cause ramifications as it is well known that he and Andrew Cole do not .. and have not spoke for many years, even at there time at United. ..which in turn, could add to the rumours that Cole could return to Nottingham Forest in a coaching capacity.(5)(9)Cole isn't at Huddersfield??Lee clark for norwich?Wish they would take him Lee Clark did a much better job.... and Lee will apply for Norwich job as he was coach there for a timeI'm a huddersfield fan and i know for a fact that cole is part of the coaching staff and has been for 4 yearsI'm also a town fan and cole isn't on the staff? He helped a bit couple of times a week during the Clark era but left long before Clark was sacked? So where you getting your info from pal?Cole hasn't been on the HTFC coaching staff since October 2009. Some people...If Cole is at Huddersfield, then he didn't turn up at Wembley last Saturday. Can't believe it, on our biggest day of the season one of our coaches was nowhere to be seen. Cole at huddersfield, what nonsense lolCole left over a year ago because we couldn't afford him. How could you have missed it he went to newspapers claiming we didn't hire him because he was blackI did my work experience with huddersfield town and i didnt see him in the 2 weeks i was there on the training ground

Port Vale looking into signing former Shrewsbury winger Steven Leslie, after his release from Wrexham.
Adams thinks the Scottish winger will be a good addition to add numbers to what is fast becoming a depleated squad. and leslie is likely to come on reduced terms suiting Vales severe financial woes.(4)(2)He got released from a non-league club..


31 May 2012 11:26:24
Liverpool hiring Rodgers...
First point of action is to bring Scott Sinclair.
Could be an interesting one, not sure if he is good enough, but a "big" club could be what he needs to realise his early promise.(4)(15)Can't be worse than what you already have and the days of Liverpool being a big club are over.Liverpool are not a big club anymore, live now not in the past. Sinclair is an ok player so should fit in ok with the rest of them.Sinclair to NorwichThen why would he go to liverpool, at best a sideways move.Liverpool will always be a big club.. i expect them to make a slight improvement next season! (im a fulham fan btw).His early promise was chelsea. dnt think hel go to liverpoolI'd rather have Adam JohnsonLiverpool are, and always will be, a 'big club'. Give me any parameter for measuring club size and Liverpool will meet it.Ofcourse Liverpool are a big club; and always will be, right now they have one of the worst squad in their history, yet they still managed to reach 2 finals... alot of midtable clubs would bite our hand for that!.

Colchester United to sign Southend United. Liam Dickinson striker. He is currently a Free Agent after being released(9)(5)He couldnt hit a barn door, good luck hahaSeems to have a pretty good goals record actually, but has trouble settling into a club is my guess; his record suggests he scores early goals then something goes wrong and he leaves on loan before being released end of season. Perhaps a move to a decent well run club like colchester is what he needs. Might kick start his career like it did for iwelumu, cureton, yeates etc, all quality players who had their best spells with the u'sDon't be fooled by his goal record at southend most of them were penalties

Christopher Samba is looking for a move back to the Premier League, with QPR and West Ham reportedly interested(16)(11)Spurs also interestedI'm certain Spurs and Stoke where in for him before the move to Russia... If so West Ham and QPR could be out the running depending on Samba's ambition!If Samba has ambition he'll choose either Spurs or QPR, Stoke and West Ham aren't going anywhere anytime soon, Spurs are challenging for Champions League and QPR are trying to build and also have Mark Hughes at the realm, if this is a potential summer signing, expect it to be either Spurs or QPR.Why would Samba come back to the Premier League when he is getting payed 100 of millions of poundsStoke. Ambition?! To foul & injure other teams maybe...
Do me a favour!

Norwich have already asked Huddersfield for permission to talk to Simon Grayson to replace Paul Lambert.(13)(28)No they haven't. Full stopDoubtful but hope soNo chance. the most probable replacements are malky mackay, steve bruce or chris houghton. i would say that malky has the best chance but there is no way we will get graysonGrayson has the best chairman outside the prem ,certainly the richest.He's just become manager he wouldn't leaveGrayson has not got the richest chairman outside the prem. There are several clubs in the Championship and at least one in league 1 with a chairman who is far richer than HoyleHey, don't forget Roy Keane, he's keen to get back into management!Im a Town fan and Hoyle isn't the richest. Owerns at Cardiff, Brizzle cty, Donny, PNE, Blackburn Hull, Swindon and palace have a few quid more. Difference is Hoyles a fan and with Financial fair play involved chairman are going to have to put cash in against 100% risk as loaning to the club won't be allowed. How many of the above will do that?Well said my friend, you've got it spot on!

Looks like the yanks for us then as quoted that the kuwait man is buying Forest in todays sun. read into it as you will but I bet bates will still be at Leeds continuation of his stranglehold on the club. Bet he retains majority shares. {Ed025's Note - dont buy the sun!(3)(6)Agreed ed do not buy the sun, the way they treated Hodgson was wrong.
As for the takeover. There is not much to choose between forest and Leeds. Both are big names, both have huge fan bases and both have great histories.
For me it's bot to be forest, as unless you are a Leeds fan, it is in most football fans blood to hate leeds lolLarry Tanenbaum is not a yank mate, he is Canadian so he is actually smart with money as he built a billion pound company and owns 4 professional sports teams in North America all at a hefty profit. Will be a good owner for Leeds, about time you lot got an owner who was good with money.Must be true if it's in the Sun, after all it is a quality tabloid with a reptation for accurate journalism !!!Larry Tanenbaum is with MLSE, they have denied any links with the Leeds takeover in a statement on Tuesday - please keep up !!The deal cruncher is that the kuwaiti can get into forrest cheaply and forrest own there own stadium

News from here in sunny deutchland, is the huddersfield town have enquired regarding bayern munchens young english winger dale jennings, about taking him on a season long loan(8)(2)Bayern might as well let him go permanently, he's looked poor when playing for Bayern II and seems a bit of a crock. Also it isn't that sunny in Deutchland [sic].

Oxford are set to enquire about the availability of Steve Howard, 36, as he was released from Leicester recently. They are also taking an interest in Southend striker Liam Dickinson who is likely to be released as Southend do not wish to pay the wage increase that a second year contract will bring.(2)(6)

Forgot to say on my last post about why would Lambert go to Villa now rumours are saying he has resigned to talk to Villa, the bit saying 'they have lost their main players like.....heskey' was a joke. Just thought I'd mention it before I get trolled. I forgot to post it on main post.

Though Emile Heskey is proven to be the best player in the world. FACT.(6)(4)Heskey best player in world,what are you on about,if you do get lambert lazy players and heskey is in that catagory wont last five mins.

Just heard from a close mate with
contacts at goodison that this morning
everton are going to place a bid of
7million matching that of southamptons
for burnley striker Jay Rodriguez.(13)(16)Dont Everton have to sell before they buy
?Is your mate a jealous pompey fanEverton have been told they need to sell before they can even think about starting to buy playersReally hope jay goes to a big club like Everton rather than Southampton ... under David Moyes he will go on and play for England.... good luck Jay and good luck EvertonFingers crossed everton get him! 7 Mill for a newly promoted club is a big big risk ..especially when players like joselu (we/saints have no chance in getting him) is up for grabs cheaperYeah this is wrong everton don't have that 7mil to spend they only just brought jelavicGood, go to everton please hes not even that goodIf anything Everton would want to spend their money on bringing Pienaer back so I can't see it. Plus Saints have almost made it a done deal.He wont join Everton! They dont have that kind of money. And to the person who said he will develop better at Everton and go onto play for England..You for real? Do you not know of the players Saints have produced? CluelessIts just another jealous pompey fan who cant take it that we can actually buy good players and they cantLook at all you saying go to everton, pipe down, he will get starting 11 most weeks and southampton have produced some great young playersTo the person who said Moyse would turn Rodriguez into an England player - jermaine beckford. Nuff said.Jermaine Beckford was 26 years old when he joined Everton, not 22 so the comparison is utter BS.

Most internationals play for their country for under 21s and feature in squads during their 20s. Beckford didn't even have a sniff at under 21s or the first team by the time he was 26 years old, so realistically never stood a chance.

Comparatively... Rodriguez is young and played for under 21s and would be playing prem football at 22, not 26.

I don't support Everton, I support Southampton, but to rubbish David Moyes credentials because Beckford didn't turn into an England player when Moyes only had him from 26 years old onward is ridiculous.Well said ^^ David moyes is a class manager and I'm a burnley fan ! Who ever jay goes to I'm sure he will do well

Any Brighton rumours between now and when Swansea appoint new manager are false ! Brighton will NOT be linked with any players all the time Gus Poyet is heavily linked with Swansea City job.
Whilst I'm here, I've just seen David Beckham and his agent driving on the Brighton by-pass towards Falmer !(5)(11)I think it is about time that Mr Bloom got Gus to commit to Brighton in a statement or ask him to go. I also think that this uncertainty is having an adverse affect on possible signings. It's only natural that players want to know who their manager is going to be for the new season.Or villa
or norwich
or the next club to have a managerial vacancy.
In fact Brighton will never sign another player until Poyet goes!Yeah nice one the men in White coats are coming for youWhy Why Why would gus want to go to Swansea when he got everything at brighton including prem football soon .WasShergar with Beckham?LMAO!!! iam a brighton fan and gus ant going any where,as for beckham that ant even worth talking about!!

WBA have delayed naming Ralf Rangnick as their head coach after it emerged that Roberto Martinez had not got the Liverpool job. Martinez is highly regarded by the Albion board and they will await the outcome of Martinez talks with Wigan chairman Dave Whelan.(2)(8)Local reports suggest that Rangnick was the preferred candidate upto yesterday afternoon when another candidate made overtures. Who that is isn't clear but maybe it is Martinez? Time will tellMartinez has pledged his future to Wigan so no.Whelan said he would only let him go to a big club west brom are a small club and the size of Wigan so he won't go thereMartinez to west brom dream onI'm a villa fan and in my opinion Westbrook are a far bigger club than WiganDream on? he isnt a mourinho or ferguson! hes a good young manager and west brom would be a good fit as they are a steadily growing club, whereas if he joined liverpool the pressure would be on as expectations would be high and if he stays at wigan he stays at a club going nowhereLots of sour grapes from villa and baggies fans maybe martinez didn't see your clubs as a step upDid westbrook finish above the villa as well as wigan. League tables don't lie we may not have your crowds but we are a better teamWest brom wont get martinez because they wont pay out compensation


31 May 2012 08:10:55
It has been reported that Paul Lambert has quit as Norwich Manager due to a dispute with the board on allowing him to discuss the vacant position with Aston Villa.
If this is the case, then I would like to say thanks Paul for an amazing 3 years, pity it couldn't have gone on longer.(14)(4)A great lossMalkay mackay next norwich manager he will take us to the next level trust what i sayThanks PL for 3 great seasons,hope board wake up soon and back progression with hard cash,just hope with villa's record with finance and managerial merry go round that if PL goes isn't jumping out the frying pan into the fire.


31 May 2012 08:06:34
Ben Foster has said he does not want to play for a top 4 side and wants to stay in the Midlands with WBA. One of the main reasons Blues were not approached straight away for Hughton was because it may damage ongoing talks to net Foster. As soon as manager confirmed (Rangnick today), Foster will be through the blue and white doors(6)(6)Does he really think he would get in a top four side, i think not

31 May 2012 07:45:52
Reading have put in a bid of £7.5 million for Gylfi Sigurdsson after Brendan Rodgers leaving has collapsed his transfer to Swansea. The Icelandic international looks set to sign for Reading over any other club due to his ties with the Berkshire club, he has fond memories with Reading and occasionally goes back to the training ground to visit the players and coaching staff. Expect a transfer within the next month.

From a reliable source at Reading F.C.(15)(13)It wont happen, regardless of his fond memories with Reading he will end up at Liverpool or another big club.Bring the boy home, he shoud never have left! Same for Shane Long. Put these two on the field with what we have got, add Yakubu and another winger then up front and midfield will be ok. Just need a few defenders and Europe here we come!His dad is very good friends with brian and he regularly talk about them going fishing together. so i doubt we would put a bid in knowing he wouldn't want to come back. i still expect him to go to Swansea or Liverpool thoughStop getting my hopes up!Brilliant if he comes back :)There is no way we would pay more than the fee Swansea had already agreed - if anything it would be a lot less as we had a 30% sell on clause when he wnt to GermanyHe wouldn't chose reading over Swansea reading are small fryYeh of course he is. Because emotional ties are far more important than playing for big club like Liverpool. Do me a favour...Reading will only get championship players as nobody wants to play for a small club like readingReading aren't small fry! especially compared to Swansea. Fair play they play decent football but one season in the prem doesn't make you BarcelonaReading have a bigger stadium, larger area, more stature over last 10 years than swansea. and can match their cash. and gylfi loves readingIt doesnt matter, he will end up at Liverpool. Bigger club than both Reading and SwanseaIt isn't about size of club, it's about security and prospects. Swansea have proven they can survive in the prem, and even thrive playing attacking football and Siggurdson has shone there.

Naturally Reading don't YET have that claim as they are a newly promoted club. It isn't an insult or jealousy but a simple fact that players will prefer playing for proven clubs. Maybe in 1 or 2 seasons Reading will prove themselves and then compete, but until then they will have to be a lot more tactile and clever with their signings, rather than just trying to sign big names from proven prem clubs.

Millwall are on the verge of making a £300,000 bid for Watford striker Troy Deeney.(8)(22)Stop this silly rumour's getting boringMore like 3 milThey can make a bid, but they'll be laughed at.I would rather HAVE VOKES!Try £3mWhat happened to Stuart Beavon?Watford are on the verge on rejecting a derisory offer from millwall for striker Troy Deeney.
Watford manager Sean Dyche will expect 2.5m+ to even consider the bid.Actually Troy Deeney is making a
£30.00 quid offer for MillwallWatford are on the verge on rejecting a derisory offer from millwall for striker Troy Deeney.
Watford manager Sean Dyche will expect 2.5m+ to even consider the bid.Millwall have been on the verge of this transfer for 6 weeks now.

The Board are not happy that KJ wants to invest the entire transfer fund in 1 player..

Rumours of a clash with the board are coming from the den..I am a watford fan this is getting boring now,what i have heard is that WBA are looking at him and are willing to bid £1.5 mHow is he worth £3m?
He has had an average season this year, before which he was rubbish.Im not sure why you are saying 3million and im a watford fan and laughed at that. He is worth no more than 750,000 but ia going nowhere as he is our main manJust a minute, £3M for a striker whose goals to goals to game ratio is poor. £300k looks a bit to much.He was played out of position until this season. Since Sordell left he has been banging goals in. We know that next season he is likely to score 15-20 goals so of course we're going to want to keep him. Value is subjective.. without him we have no quality striker so he's worth a lot to us.Deeney is pony anyway.Rumours of a clash in the board room? dont make me laugh?

KJ has just spent £400k on a left back, and bringing in Chris Taylor. I doubt there would be a clash if he can bring in the players he wants.

This Deeney stuff is getting so boring, Watford fans think hes the next Sordell, even he was over rated. and look where he'll be playing next season?Deeney is class now he is playing in his best position.Watford and Palace fans bang on about all this young talent they have and how great they are. Lets be fair you did not have brilliant seasons last year, and Millwall are a much better prospect after our strong finish. KJ knows what he is doing and our early signings show promise.His goalscoring record for watford is rubbish, 13 goals in 79 apps, so theres no way hes's worth 3millionSordell is not and never was a target for millwall despite fitting kenny jacketts usual demographic. however, ishmeal miller from notts forest is as they look to reduce their wage bill and hes relativley poor season will allow a transfer to take place for a nominal feeWho wants deeney when were being linked with chris martin from norwich milllllllllllMillwall.... much better prospect than Watford?.... is this real life? pinches selfWatford for religation this season^ Relegation. The pundits say it every season and we do well. Millwall for relegation is more likely, awful team.Wait you mean the same millwall who have no money sold there best player last season, will probably sell henderson who scraped staying up are better than watford, good one !You saying that Watford, who have no money, sold their best three players last season, will probably sell Mariappa and who managed to stay up comfortably aren't better than Millwall? Good one!Yes Millwall are better than Watford, better ground, better set-up and better fans, even that Watford fan who wrote a book on a year in the life of a football fan (Watford supporter originally), changed to be a Millwall fan as he said their fans were more passionate. Your ground has no atmosphere, your kit put's me in the mind of a high street after the drunks have all thrown up after a Saturday night, and for some reason you class yourselves as a London club when Gillingham FC are probably nearer to London than you!, Your a selling club with some good prospects however you were not challenging for promotion last year with ALL this talent, and they will be sold off before the 2012/13 season starts. Millwall do not have to sell and they have a settled see yer next year for 6 pointss.

Watford and Ipswich are both interested in getting Ben Amos on loan from Manchester United.(14)(6)I sincerely hope not. Unless we (Ipswich) can get another keeper in permanently (Guzan, Doyle or Kuszczak all look good) and there is no 24 hour recall on Amos.Watford is the most likely destination due to the good relationship between the two clubsWe dont want anymore loan keepers ! let Watford have him, maybe we could have Loach for a reasonable fee ?Ipswich need a long term number one, not a short term loan deal. Either a season long loan without a recall clause or not at all.You can have Loach for £2m

yeovil manager gary johnson in talks over a possible deal for ex club northhamptons striker adebayo akinfenwaa.(11)(11)Pretty hard to do when your on holidayHe does still have his phone, which he said he would use if people were trying to contact him! dont sound so aggressive if you dont know the facts ^^Phones were invented along time ago.No way, akinfenwa is not up to league one now...Yes he is, he's beast! I'd be delighted if we signed him or Jon ParkinToo slow... needs everything to feet... doesnt work hard to compensate... money better spent elsewhereJohnson nearly finished our club with his useless signings and poor tactical knowledge. he can have bayo triple the asking price. glad hes moved to a team furthest away. ntfc fanSurely if he is that bad why did he score 18 goals for u18 goals - Joint top scorer in League 2. Yeah that is certainly reason to say he's not very good!

Paul Lambert will walk away from Norwich and bring Grant Holt with him to Villa Park. He'll also sign free-agent Zak Whitbread, who he released earlier this month.(18)(22)Bringing Grant Holt with him? Only if he sneaks him out in his kitbag.The reason grant holt handed in a transfer request the other week was because he had a bust up with lambert earlier in the season, and it looked like lambert was gonna stay when holt handed in his transfer requestSigning Zak Whitbread for Villa would not look good for Lambert after releasing him. No way can that happen and could prompt legal action from NorwichThe reason for Holt's transfer request was a falling out with Lambert. If Lambert goes, a good chance Holt will stay.OMG I hope not. If Lambo goes to Villa no doubt the press will start the rumour that old boy Steve Bruce will return to Carrow Road. OMG I hope not!!No chance of legal action should Zak sign for Villa if Lambert goes there. His contract was up at the end of June any way so he could have walked in 4 weeks time having taken another 30k from Norwich in the mean time. If he planned not to stay nothing could be done.If he released Whitbread because he felt he was not going to fit his plans at Norwich, why on earth would he have a different view at Villa. Please think before you post next time.It would look incredibly suspicious that Lambert released him as Norwich manager then goes and signs him as Villa manager on a free. I doubt whitbread wanted to leave, its not like he's going to sign for a bigger clubThis has happened before, and legal action was persued. If whitbread were to sign with Villa, Villa would have to prove that it wasn't Lamberts choice not to re-sign him, and that they were talking to Whitbread before Lamberts signing.Looks like Villa want to be Norwich eh? Holt won't go there now Lambert has walked

Celtic have made it their priority to sign another striker this summer to share the workload with Gary Hooper. My sources can confirm that Hooper won't be going in the summer, if he is going to go this season it could be in January for an inflated price. The Hoops are want to strngthen in otehr areas of the pitch but are wary of over spending. The players that Celtic have made bids for already are;

Yakubu, Blackburn, £1m (in negotiations but the Yak would prefer to stay in the prem)
Jordan Rhodes, Huddersfield, £5m (Rejected)
Simon Cox, WBA, £2m (Rejected, Albion won't discuss until they have appointed a manager.)
Matt Mills, Leicester, £2m (club have stalled)
Players also on Celtics radar:
Jay Bothroyd, QPR, £1.5m
Sebastián Pinto, Bursaspor, £2.5m
Fraser Forster, Newcastle, £2.5m
Wes Hoolahan, Norwich, £2.5m
David Bentley, Spurs, £1.75m
Rafael Márquez, NY Red Bulls, LOAN
Lewis McGugan, Notts Forest, £1.75m {Ed007's Note - The £2 million fee for Fraser Forster was agreed with Newcastle as part of his loan deal. The rest I will leave for others to judge...........}(8)(29)Hoolahan worth much more than 2.5m and would take a lot more to pry him from norwichIf your "sources" helped you with this lot I think the spelling should have been "sauces"!
Hooper will go shortly, and then you will have some funds to rebuild your forward line.Celtic have no moneyCeltic do have money! and with CL they will fund transfers however they will not break the bank(they have low debt and a balanced book) and would prob sell one of the players to help fund transfers as well they are getting rid of fring players to free up even more cash. before you go on and say things about a club(#3)you should know the club.most of the targets mentiond sounds right especially the first 4.Explain how Celtic have no money. They put a bid of 4 million in for Rhodes and are ready to put a bid of 2.5 mill in for Rosenberg midfielder Marcus henriksen.Explain how Celtic have no money...when the two majority shareholders are in the top 15 in British football?


31 May 2012 00:37:00
Jon Stead is a target for Huddersfield(19)(13)He's already said he's happy and settled in BristolWe are back on this again why do we need Stead when we've got RhodesHe handed in a transfer request with some other BC playersHe has apparently been a transfer target almost every season since he has gone!We don't want Stead, nice guy but not for us at this stage in his career.

Released Huddersfield duo Tommy Miller and Danny Cadamarteri are wanted by league one sides Hartlepool (Miller) and Walsall (Cadamarteri)

Heard Huddersfield are interested in Ricardo Rocha who was awarded Portsmouth's Player of the Season award last season(12)(11)Not hard to be Portsmouth player of the season. They only had about 4 players by the end, or do it seemed at any rateDont see why people feel the need to put irrelevant comments like the one above. Anyone with any real passion for football wouldnt want to see any club struggle. Put yourself in their position and get some prospective. They're fans are a million miles better than their rivals Southampton as well. - Reading FanWhy are there fans a million miles better they never even turned up to watch pompey half the time so much for great fans, they couldn't be bothered, reading fan just worry about your own clubSaints fans didnt go and watch them in league one until they started winning! every teams fans turn up when they are winning and not when they are losing! FACT!^i agree with the last post, but wasnt Jason Pearce out player of the season?But their 15k or so fans who always turn up no matter what are probably some of the best, nicest most genuine fans I've ever come across. I love going to Fratton Park for away games. Always a good atmosphere there as well. When I went to St. Mary's yes, it's a nicer ground, but doesnt have the same atmospheric feel to it.He was players player of the seasonAfobe is st! all he does is dive!Why do people put fact when its a opinionGot to agree, Pompey fans are amongst the very best and do not deserve the stupid comments directed towards them. Their club was run badly by a series of incompetent owners, it could happen to any of us.

Watfords player of the year Adrian mariappa being linked with a move to reading a fee of £2.75 million would be enough to lure the jamaican international to the mad stad !

LOYAL ROYAL 1871(11)(11)£2.75 million and the rest.Do you only want his right leg then?Sound like the figure we'd deal at, year on his contract as long as its over 2.5 and rising to around 3 i will be happyThe amount of rubbish people put on this site is unbelivable. more like 3.5m - 4mPoor old watford, want people to feel sorry for them because the player who is better than their whole team wants to play prem footy with reading:( be prepared to be playing in league 1 in a years timeOh yes, we will spend £4million on a player with no EPL experience which shone in a team of shoddy players. Hmmm... no thanks. £2million maybe, anymore is bad business simple as.You mean that shoddy team who beat you and then finished 11th , ouch! yes bring on relegation more like we will be in the league above u next season

Middlesbrough in talks with Franck Moussa after the Belgian midfielder had his contract cancelled.(8)(10)This is true, I'm best mates with his brother and he tells me he is moving to Middlesbrough.Moussa spotted at Rockliffe Park, Middlesbrough's training ground. Deal close to completion, training with the club until the deal can be confirmed.This would be a top signing for boro at a good price.Im a Spireite and he was head and shoulders above everything we saw last season.....yes I know that wasnt too hard to achieve!Training with the club? Everyones on holiday...

Franck Moussa will sign for either Doncaster or Chesterfield

Moussa became a popular figure with both clubs on loan in the past 2 seasons(13)(5)Rotherham will probably confirming the transfer on fridayWould love to see the Moose back at CFC but I don't think he'd want to play in League 2. Could walk into pretty much any League 1 team and a few Championship sides and his wage demands would be quite tasty.Moussa is a quality midfielder i would love him to come back to the B2net and finish of what he started but some how i feel that he wouldn't play league 2 footballAs confirmed on twitter by alan biggs or rob staton (cant remember which) we can pretty much rule out the signing of moussaRotherham ha?...WalsallFranck was great at chesterfield.the only loan signing worth having please please sign mooseHe'll come back to doncaster since thats where he lives atmWallsall are a terrible side he wont go there

Craig Westcarr 150,00
Zavon Hines 500,000(12)(15)Craig westcarr for £150 quid, bargin!Blimey - with this crop of nearly men - POSH will be a force to be reckoned with (in league 1 the year after next!)Haha lualua for £300k! We only just signed him relatively recently...for way more than that!You wont get danny rose, and you wont get Michael Bostwick that cheapNumpty comments like this actually make me embarrassed to be a posh fan.We sent Rose back to tottenham from his previous loan spell early. We wouldn't be in for him again. Bostwick and Lualua signing for those fees is dreamt up and Hines has not once been mentioned by any other posh fan with an ounce of credibility. Stupid posts like this make me agree with the above comment

Reading have tabled a bid for one of their ex-players. Rumours are rife but most people agree it is either Shane Long (unlikely due to managerial situation at WBA), Ryan Bertrand, or Gylfi Sigurdsson after Rodgers left Swansea for L'Pool.(13)(13)If Swansea just signed Sigurdsson this transfer window, why will he or them let him go weeks later? Also isn't it illegall.
Dumb guy {Ed003's Note - He hasn't signed yet,I think his medical is to take place on Friday,or maybe not now?? }Small club get your facts right we are now the 8th richest club in the worldHaha 8th richest team in the world get a grip, love to no where u have made that up from. Yes your new owner is rich but not nearly as rich as reading fans believe. It also doesn't matter how rich u are a team like reading will never be more than an average team.Swansea havn't signed him. they havve had a bid accepted but he has not signed a ontract or had a medical"Haha 8th richest team in the world get a grip, love to no where u have made that up from. Yes your new owner is rich but not nearly as rich as reading fans believe. It also doesn't matter how rich u are a team like reading will never be more than an average team." ... The combination of Anton and his father values around 800 mil, and how, with that much money, do you think that reading will be nothing more than average!? and your saying the earlier post was delusional, check yourselfI think is what he meant money alone does not make you a big or rich club. Fan base turnover history are all contributing factors. Just because your owner is wealthy doesnt make Reading wealthy.If readings owners have £800,000,000 and are the 8th richest club on earth then what are Cardiff Vincent tan has over £1.2billionIf Reading will only ever be average why have I got a READING MUG with 'by the far the greatest team the world has ever seen on' ??Sorry but your wrong. anton has a personal fortune of about 300 million. but has over 4 billion tied up with other businesses including TSI. and as he owns 51% of RFC we are now included in that group and will benefit from it. his dad had a personal fortune of 5 billion and double that tied up. he also owns 25% of TSI.We have one of the best managers around and with the new influx of new money we'll sign a couple of quality players and keep doing our stuff. Norwich did it. Swansea did it. They didn't spend millions, but kept it simple and stuck to what they know.SJM confirmed that Boris is a Billionaire at least twice over. Gotta love the people calling us a small club. Don't let the green eyed monster get the better of you.Lot more than 800 mil mate! His father is a billionaire and has also given us backing!I hate the fact that people have already forgotton how absolutely brilliant Reading were in their first season in the PL. They were the team to talk about. So they didn't keep it up in the 2nd season, but what to say they can't do it again and be better? They've got new money, they're a growing club with a growing fanbase in a town that is desperately trying to become a city and with a good Manager. Why should they only be an average club? They've got the makings to be pretty good in my opinion.Just because your owner has all that money does not mean it belongs to Reading....8th richest club in the world? I think not.Actually Boris Zingarevich who is now involved is a multi billionaire, not sure the exact figure but yeah, puts us up in one of he top 15 clubs in england i'd wager.Means nothing, alot of this money is tied into other companies etc. Does not mean Reading have all this money to spend.Your not getting it. Anton is going to use rfc as his flagship. He needs to invest. Heavily. We are a small club but will grow. No reading fan is saying we are the new man city or chelsea but we will be able to beat teams like swansea and liverpool. Liverpools owners are also an investment group. So yes we are a small club but hopefully not forever. Im just hoping we can keep the small club feel which i personally love.Yes but the same has to be said for all other teams, they dont get all the money either, now im not saying were the X richest club now, i dont care, now we wont have to sell our palyers to survive and bring a couple in to boost the current squad, the new ground extension on the cards for a years time if we stay up too, thats all i need, i dont wanna be a man city or chelsea, trying to buy the league and that only where being the X richest club comes into effect.Having rich owners doesn't mean you are a rich club, the owners aren't going to throw their entire fortune into a club!You are a small club and always will be you've never had fans and come on here making out your something at the end of the day truth hurtsTbh i don't think it really matters how 'big' a club is. Reading may not be the biggest club, but it does have a lot going for it! Obviously new money is one thing, but the club is very friendly and the fans we have are very devoted. We have a brilliant manager and a smart business model and theres no reason Reading cant survive the rigours of the Prem. We've come 8th before, and won the championship twice including the RECORD 106! There's a nice bit of history for you!And we were founded in 1871 making us one of the oldest football eams in England, another bit of history for all ya :)Another bit of history is elm park which use to get 4000 crowdsIf u think we dont have an fans why dont u just come down here and see 4 yourself, if u r proved right i will eat my mouth off!You become a big club and you get ridiculous expectation. Look at Leeds United. Terrible team, big expectations due to their history which labels them as a big club.

preston to sign transfer listed leeds striker billy paynter westly sees him has the ideal target man rumour has it 250,000 also to be anounced joel byrom ,lawrie wilson ,mark roberts all from stevenage all these are nailed on certs(8)(16)Roberts and Wilson won't be leaving you can't afford themWestley wants to lay off stevenage, for so much that he got the love for them and he gonna ruin them by taking their best players.Joel byrom was released by stevenage
and the club wont sell unless its big big amounts of money, pne would have to pay more than that to get roberts and wilsonWhy would he sign Laurie Wilson? i kinda get the other two but Wilson's not a good playerWrong. Roberts is going nowhere, and neither is Wilson, and even if he is, wilson is rubbish.Mark Roberts would be a great signing but Billy Paynter is useless.Not what we need.Bring back the beast.Bring back jon parkin totally agree , who is buying are transfer listed players ?Agree on bring jon ( the beast ) parkin backin him and hume would rip this league a new oneRidsdale at a meeting in portugal for 3 days all will be revealed on his return about who is coming to are great teambilly paynter scored 29 gls in his last season in L1,he is better than any striker we have or will get easy.I live in Leeds,have had the misfotune of seeing him play and trust me he is terrible! Like I said the beast would be my choice,someone to compliment Hume up front.we have signed some class players and i was very impressed with stevenage last season. Laird is excellent and mark Roberts is a great leader.I was worried about westley last season but trust him to take us back up next season

With Brendan Rodgers to become Liverpool manager, he will raid Swansea with Ashley Williams, Leon Britain, Nathan Dyer and Scot Sinclair heading to Anfield meaning Charlie Adam, Stewart Downing on the way out, estimated cost 25 million - Sigurdsson who has just signed for Swans is trying to find the escape route immediately - Holloway, Curbishly and Steve Bruce are Swanseas top 3 who they want to interview for the vacant job - bookies have slashed their odds for relegation as it is believed they will not live up to this seasons pnemonial perfomance(15)(27)Brendans done enough damage by leaving us, he wont take any players trust me!Lol just all average players they do good at sawnsea but will do rubbish at liverpoolIan hollway would be a good replacement he plays a style similar to swansea with blackpoolGood luck to them salvaging money back on DowningAverage players? how come they were average enough to get 4 points off Liverpool (who didnt even score against Swansea last season)And relagate liverpool with them... rogers aiint stupid

Charlton are to speak to Justin Hoyte who is out of contract at Middlesbrough(10)(3)Please god charlton take him,will quite happily drive morph to london myselfHe is definitely heading back down south, as a Boro fan im not too disappointed, nice lad but frustrating to watch.I plead with you Powell please do not sign him! We've got chris SOLLY he's the f word quality! As the song goes :)That's ok, be a nice little back up for Chris Solly.. No chance he'll start though with our defence.Solly needs cover though mate, sooner or later he will get an injury ban or pehaps even leave!^ but we have no back up for Solly, so maybe it would make sense.We have a quality right back in Solly but we do need back up. Hoyte could be that man.We should sign Oastler from Torquay as back up, had a great season and has potential to step up!Hoyte is a good rb but he sometimes makes defensive errors but going forward his crossing good when he gets past players

Reading have bidded for Sigurdsson today, Sigurdsson was due to have a medical at Swansea this week but it will not take place after Rodgers leaving to go to Liverpool. It is also rumoured that Liverpool are interested in Sigurdsson. It seems as if it is now a two horse race between Reading and Liverpool(15)(8)Reading fans are mad they are a small club with league 1 support but keep saying they are in a battle with Liverpool to sign a player it's crazy you're be in championship next year which is a too bigger league for youHhaha dont have a clue, huw jenkins has realeased a statement saying gylfis deal will go ahead thanks to the persuation of club captain garry monk!The player will decide who he plays for so there's no point in calling Reading a small club or that Liverpool have fallen so low in recent years. Both clubs will take points of one another next season with or without SigGylfi came for Brendan so won't stay.League 1? are you mad? and how many reading games have you seen over thee years? if you had sense you would realise that we are a prem/champ fringe club. and since when are liverpool a big club? they finished eighth this season which is also the place reading finished in our first year in the prem league.So its ridiculous for two premiership clubs to chase one player. Damn, logic is taking a serious hit tonight.Gylfi didnt come for Brendan, he came because he wants to play in the premier league and knew that Swansea would guarantee him first team football, whoever the knew manager is will start Gylfi due to his obvious quality, the deal WILL go aheadReading support league 1? our support was bigger than yours in the championship in the year you beat us in the playoff final. And our support will be bigger than yours next season too.I agree with the person who said reading a small club there away and home support is pathetic they have no fansAlso League 1 support? come on mate, we had sell out crowds most of last year, especially at the bigger matches.You sold out twice and you won the league look at the facts you've always had no fans and that won't changeThose fans saying we have no fans have obviously never been to the mad stad, taking 3000 to southampton on a friday night that is on tv, 21000 average attendance over last year AND plans for expansion arent founded on wigan-sized support are they?You have the worst, quietest, most boring fans in the championship. Could hear a mouse fart whenever I have been to Madejski stadium.If garry monk thinks he could persuade the sig to go to swansea he better start praying!If we have no support, how come we are getting an expansion taking us to 36,000 seats which is bigger then White Hart Lane. If we have no fans, explain why the streets of Reading were covered with fans to see the Trophy paraded around Reading in the pouring rain.

Expect Martinez to look to his homeland and make a move for long term target Michu from Rayo Vallecano now that the Liverpool/Villa sagas are over. 15 goals from midfield last season in a poor side. Also martinez has a web of contacts in holland and has targetted Twente striker Luuk De Jong.(4)(9)De Jong will be going to a side playing in EuropeReally after Southampton have shown a big interest in Michu i find this hard to believe as i have heard he is supposed to be in talks with Nigel Adkins Around June 6th :L but he will probs go to a club like West Brom :LDe Jong & Michu are reportedly wanted by many higher established clubs like Man Utd, unlikely but will they settle for wigan. Espicially De Jong who is more rated by scouts and managers...Unless you mean if he joins Villa/L'Pool.
If so my bad

30 May 2012 20:02:32
Charlton fans who do u think we will sign this summer?(0)(5)WHO CARES!!!Ignoring the post above, I think we will make four signings. A striker, Stuart Beavon looks favourite at this point in time although I have no insider information. Sam Baldock has been mentioned however, I dont see us signing him on a loan deal and West Ham (apparently) dont want to let him go. My personal choice would be Charlie Austin but I dont pay the bills, maybe thats not so likely.

A centre midfield dynamo, various names are being banded about for that role, none I would say are the tough tackler we need, Im at a loss as to who this could be though. Of those suggested; Stephen Gleeson - MK Dons, Matt Sparrow – Brighton, Mark Pugh – Bournemouth, Anthony Wordsworth – Colchester. We play best with a holding midfielder with either D Hollands or D Stephens pressing, I don’t think our manager agrees with me on this, so Wordsworth could be our man if a fee can be agreed. Paul Coutts would be my choice and his name was mentioned but I think Wesley will want to keep him onboard unless of course the price is right and Charlton just don’t throw money around anymore so, I cant see that one.

A fullback, that could be two if we lose Solly and there are some clubs sniffing around. Frazer Richardson would be my favorite but again that just is not on the cards. Michael Turner is a possibility (apparently) although I cant see it. Kieran Lee is the most likely I’ve seen still not high on my list of possibles.

A goal keeper, this one might just get left until last and I have no idea who it could be.

Apart from that there could be a few players kicking around without a contract as has been the way of it of late. Justin Hoyte has been mentioned here as has Lloyd Sam. A dark horse could be Kanu, in for his experience and professionalism (I must say good luck to Pompy, great fans, hope you are still playing next season) having said that Id love Luke Varney back.

A lot of all that depends how much money is to be spent, how much we have is a mystery and the answer to the mystery is locked in a tax heaven vault somewhere (probably somewhere sunny).More clowns from Billy Smarts circusOnly players others do not want I expect. Based on CPs tactics last year I expect a whole new team. I've heard BWP to Reading. Any news ed? {Ed001's Note - I have not heard of any interest in BWP from Reading.}Seriously need a stronger center mid someone who will win headers and be strong in the tackle The Championship is a long ball league completely different to League 1 I think Hollands and Stephens could get bulliedWas with you on this posting until you mentioned you'd like Luke Varney back! Heaven forbid!Nobody"until you mentioned you'd like Luke Varney back!"


I like him though he could dribble and run with the ball at his feet and made nice channel runs, something I like to watch.

30 May 2012 19:51:32
Ian Holloway to become next swansea mananger after blackpool announced that they wont stop him leaving if there was any intrest from the premier league.(24)(12)Holloway is a good manager who can do miracles with a shoe string of a budget, so he will fit in with the swansea board.

But you look at blackpool and you look at swansea they play very different football, both sides are good but very different, will holloway bow down to the way swansea play or will the team have to ditch there styleand adopt holloways?

Somthing worth thinking about if your a swansea fan right now hey!Makes sense, its closer to the west country. for Holoways family to.I'd say they play very similar football, especially if you look at the style that blackpool were producing over the last 10 games of the season. As a blackpool fan that is what worries me, I think it could persuade Holloway to go.Ollie's going nowhere, and he's already talking to potential signings at BFC, so turn your attention elsewhere he's staying with King Karl {Ed001's Note - Oyston is exactly the problem, while he runs the club the right way, he also holds the purse strings very tight. At Swansea, Ollie would get a lot more leeway, it is certainly possible. Though I don't know why someone up there said they already play the same way, Ollie plays fast break, Swansea play possession, possession, possession. It is nothing like the same!}Sky sports news saying Poyet to Swansea, Lambert to Cilla so maybe more likely Ollie to Norwich......if that happens could be Mellon or K Phillips for Blackpool? Ed....any views? {Ed001's Note - I doubt Ollie would want to move to Norwich, it is a long way from his home and not an easy journey. I do think he would love another crack at the Prem though.}Blackpool did play more fast break in the premiership, but this season he has changed the philosophy slightly, starting with short passes in midfield trying to keep possession in and around their half, looking for a breakthrough when they can. However the defence do sometimes still pump the ball up to the wings, so it's not the same style, but certainly similar.Holloway actually now live near clitheroe which is about half an hour from Blackpool Ian holloway will stay at Blackpool FC for another season if we go up he will stay if we don't he will then leave.Holloway no, Poyet or Karl Robinson, although Graham Jones has been mentionedApparently ollie is looking for a new house in the blackpool area. nuff said.

Paulo Gazzaniga will complete his move from Gillingham to Peterborough this week. The fee is thought to be £400k with add ons(5)(5)However good he is, and whatever he costs, it's a waste of money. Good goalkeepers are ten-a-penny, last for donkey's years, and you can get them on frees. Money better spent on outfield players.

Ben Hamer is set to leave charlton for leeds on a 300k deal(3)(15)Not going to happen mate, he's had a settled season and been first choice all the time.Horseapples, this will not happenWe bought him for 250k so why when he has kept 18 clean sheets last season and 1st choice and settled, would his value only increase by 50k?!?"We bought him for 250k so why when he has kept 18 clean sheets last season and 1st choice and settled, would his value only increase by 50k?!?"

Because for school boy dreamers, math is not a priority.What aload of rubbish if he leaves we will get vorm from swanseaDon't think so,not good enough for WarnockROFL. Why would we let him go for 300K.
Love the way fans not only make up the rumour, but the price too.
Try again!No way!!Stupid to say hamer to leeds will not happen,if they come in he will force a move even if we say no and it is all player power nowadaysI'm not saying it wont happen but I can honestly say he wouldn't leave if they did offer unless they offered him double or even triple his wage! All last season sir chris powell did so many things to bond the players as we bought in 25 players, they have such a good relationship and trust me now that and the fact that sir chris powell is one of the nicest men in football and was voted by numerous polls to be in the top 10 most inspirational English football figures, that'll make him and any other player stay unless a prem team comes knocking on the door!

Yakubu will most likely be going to reading rather than west ham because he might not be guaranteed first team football due to too many strikers a fee of £1 million would be enough us to a clause in his contract if BB got relegated !
LOYAL ROYAL 1871(8)(22)Westham all the way.Better be quick for his signature cus LEEDS may have serious dosh coming in.Hi Loyal Royal - his wages would be massive and i think you could buy better - it's a bit like Owen hi wages and risk - i say let westham have him
CTS - saints fan (good run in last season - deffo came down to the St Mary's game, well done mate)West Ham will sign him for several reasons:
1)West Ham are the only club who have actually bid for him
2)He is mates with Matt Taylor and Gary O'Neil who were with him at Portsmouth
3)Mates with Big Sam
4)West Ham have bid for him for the last 4 seasons!And did he come to you any of those 4 seasons? nope so lets see whats gonna have changed that to make him love the Hammers suddenly after 4 years of no's, oh Yakubu your such a tease :PHope he does go to west ham. Why would we need him when robbo plays the same style of football but better and with more commitment. Yakubu is too lazy for readingHe his good friends with jason roberts to at readingAnd Jason Roberts is also good friends with Yakubu.. West Ham dont need anymore strikers anywayWest ham hoof ball game will really suit him NOTWon't go to reading he will join bigger club not a tiny club

jonas ollson will sign a new long term contract with west brom once he returns from the Euro's. also albion legend darren moore has encouraged west brom to make a move for chris hughton.(6)(4)I hope ollson does and I hope we get ralf rangnick he is a quality managerC'mon Ollson show us your loyalty mate your a top player and you will be an ambassador for our club one dayWe need to keep ollson and get craig dawson in the team next season for experience hes a quality player so get shut of mcauley we have rigewell for coverOlsson will sign on if we get ralf rangnickGet rid of McAuley? Take it you don't go down the matches then?


30 May 2012 18:55:31
west brom are in advanced talks with former sunderland goalkeep Craig Gordon. they are seeing him as the perfect number 1 keeper choice after ben foster who seems very unlikey to join west brom after rumours of him prefering a move to a top four club(10)(5)Are you saying foster is a better keeper,if so you are crackers.What top 4 team would Ben Foster get in ? Arsenal maybe but one top 4 side already let him go as did a mid table Prem club when in a lower division.Bens a baggie i have this from a very good source he will be no1 next season gordon or jussi will be no2 watch this space ;)Foster is a better keeper full stopGordon is better than Foster hands down when fit, just couldnt replace the beasty Belgian Mignolet at Sunderland.Foster won't leave the Midlands and there's no top 4 club anywhere near.There was interest from Spurs back in Jan and since then Foster has said he doesnt want to uproot his young family and also said he would like a deal between WBA and Brum sorted out. I m pretty sure he said he didnt like the pressure of playing at a top 4 club when he left Man Utd. He will either join West Brom or stay at Brum (which i doubt)How can someone even say that Gordon is better then foster. How may cleans sheets did Gordon get last year. Actually how many games did he play. Gordon is so good that a nobody is ahead of him in goal for sunderlandWest brom will sign Gordon as NUMBER 2 goalkeeper behind ben foster who will sign in the summer. however albion will only sign gordon if he agrees a wage-cut.Mignolet is hardly a nobody, he is Belgium's number 1, so think what you are saying. Foster isnt even that good anyway, rotting in the Man Utd reserves for yearsYou have just proven my point belgium. ReallyHow can any1 say gordon is better than foster,you obviously dont watch much football

Josh McEachran will sign for Southampton on loan next week. I am a friend of Francis Benali who is still friends with a lot of the Saints players including Jack Cork. The McEachran deal is well and truly on possibly with an option to buy as Chelsea want to loan him out again but he wants to stay in the south. The option of joining up with his best mate is apparently appealing.(18)(9)He is in dubai at the momentMcEachran is supposedly Chelsea's next "Big Thing" so i very much doubt they would sell him, but loan is possible. Adkins is more likely to want to bring in someone more permanent though.No thanks, plus we won't loan players we want to build a squad with out youth players (the Southampton way)Decent player but cant see this happening. Loan unlikely as we will be more interested in developing our own players and not another clubs' for them. As for where you heard this information a) players wont be aware of transfers, espcially with the Cortese regime b) I also (or 'actually' if you were lying) know Fran and I can confirm he wouldnt know transfer details either. Like I said, cant see it happening.Great player, gonna be massive. Doubt chelsea would sell unless its for a big price, but loan could be possible if saints dont get there targets that they want to buyWhoever said he's Chelsea next big thing won't it be the first half decent plus he ain't even that good Southampton bring things like Matt le tiss theo Walcott alex ox chamberlin and now we got adam Lallana proving himself a saints legendIt really depends on the new manager, am friends of the family and they cant really make a move yetFrancis benali is my coach and he we asked do you know all them he said most but said nothing on mceachren he knows kelvin davis mostly plus my mate at chelsea says mchercrean is gonna play for chelseas first in about 2 years and is the next great thing so if come ill buy all of you a car each.


30 May 2012 18:29:05
Lot of talk withing last hour or so that reading have bid for a former player believed to be gylfi sigurdsson or bertrand(loanee from chelsea) either would be great to see back at the mad stad(4)(11)

Dundee United striker Johnny Russell is the subject of a £800k bid from Peterborough(6)(14)To good a prospect for themDidnt they reject a bid of 1.5 million from
celtic in january and also derby have offered 900k + chris maguireDont think that one will happen bidding starts 1 million plus


30 May 2012 18:05:32
Charlton are to bid around £3m for Tottenham striker Harry Kane.(1)(26)3m for a player that has all of 23 games at Championship level, I dont think so!Charlton to spend £3m don't make me laughWait until Charlton start making some signings this season before you start commenting about how much money that have. As a fan from a rival club I know by good source that they are much better placed than most this year!Thank you ^^^^ a true football fan who knows not to mock unless you know, I'm a charlton fan and as you said you support a rival team so I salute you good sir!!£3m players plus wages when we can't guarantee to even stay in the division. I can see us back in L1 soon with a debt millstone. Noooooo!^^ Finally someone get's us!Powell knows how to get great players for cheap and more importantly get rubbish players playing well (kermorgant) there's no way he would waste 3m on a player that's bearly played when he could get 3 players of the same standardCharlton will not spend 3 million on one player, get realDebt milestone? When one of our secret owners has 600million for us to spend as well as the two main owners, slater and jiminezI spoke to a certain former Charlton and Chelsea CB after the wycombe game, and he said that Sir Chris Powell has got a 5 year budget of 50-60Mil. In 5 years assuming that money gets us to the prem the real money behind the club will be revealed and the club will be sold to them. 3M isn't out of the question for 1 player, but Kane isnt worth that yet. No track record, when you can get J. Rhodes for that sort of money! He's still young scored 41 goals last year, and easily good enough for the championship and eventually the prem!Tony Jimenez has a lot more than slater but the 600 million guy has less than him as well jimenez has 'contacts'Clear of debt. why not????^^^ finally someone understands our current financial situation ( I posted the comment about how we won't have a debt milestone and about kevin cash having 600mill) I totally agree with you there if you look at the 'conspiracy' stories, cash's son works at les bordes which is a big company that is owned by jiminez, also a shareholder that was announced (Alex newell) works for a company that is owned/close to a company owned by Kevin cash! We honestly do have billions when you taken all of our owners money that they re willing to spend on us, so bring on the prem in 3years or less COYR"^^^ finally someone understands our current financial situation ( I posted the comment about how we won't have a debt milestone and about kevin cash having 600mill) I totally agree with you there if you look at the 'conspiracy' stories, cash's son works at les bordes which is a big company that is owned by jiminez, also a shareholder that was announced (Alex newell) works for a company that is owned/close to a company owned by Kevin cash! We honestly do have billions when you taken all of our owners money that they re willing to spend on us, so bring on the prem in 3years or less COYR" Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !^^ Just because your jealous that my club has money and your doesn'tNo one knows how much charlton have in terms of money, the owners go to such lengths to hide themselves. The Chairmen and Chief Exec are just front men they dont own the shares, so how much they have or have not got is not relevant.The chairman (slater and jiminez) and the chief ex ( Richard murray) do own shares you tool! About 40% in total! Kevin cash is about 15% and the Alex newell guy that was announced ealier last season owns 9.8(10)% was is FACT AS THE COUB ANNOUNCED IT!No-one has a clue who owns the shares- If they own under 10% they dont have to be declared.Omg it was announced on the official website that a new shareholder was announced and he was called alex newell and he had 9.8 or 10%!!!

Celtic have accepted a 5mil bid from Norwich for Gary hooper . And will buy Rhodes to replace. Good deal for Celtic IMO(8)(34)Not sure about this! hooper has already proved how good he is for celtic!No they have not, wouldn't pay £5m for him, good player but is he worth £5m not so sure.

NOT a norwich fan, you tell me if he's worth the money ?Southampton had 8 rejected so presumably thats not trueNot the greatest career move by Rhodes if this rumour has any foundation ...won't develop as a player playing 4 games a season...with the remainder training sessionsNot true at all! 100% BullWhy would they accept 5 when they turned down 7What about european football,he is not going to go to a top epl club,so he would probably fare better there,also this guy scores for hudderfield,its not top class football,so he yet to prove himself its a gamble.Celtic wont consider a bid of at least £7million, and they are holding contract talks atm, Hooper has expressed his love for playing for CelticI am friends with Gary and this Norwich thing is soooo far wide of the mark. NO BID and NO INTEREST from them at all.
LONDONBHOYNah we would never accept 5 million, we rejected 7 from southampton but rhodes would be nice i must admitWould be a great signing for norwich and will score goals in the premSorry Norwich, if you have no idea of the cost for the player then your "rumour" is pants, right from the off!No they havent. They rejected £6 million from Southampton in January so they wont be taking less from Norwich. Unless Holt is part of the deal ;-)

Joking aside Hoops will probably be allowed to leave if we can get £7 million plus for him.Friends with Gary my backside. What sort of mate of a professional player writes anything at all on a rumour site. Especially when the rumour is as ludicrous as Hooper signing for Norwich.Londonbhoy there is no chance that you are friends with Hooper you little troll lol Ed007 caught you out on the Hoops site.


30 May 2012 18:01:51
Nakhi Wells will not leave Bradford unless an offer comes in over £175,000.(11)(3)No he won't leave at all, he has just signed a new contract


30 May 2012 18:01:48
Billy Painter has approached swindon town and Di Canio has agreed to a trial for the striker.(10)(15)He wouldnt sign for preston because of wages so i fid that very unlikelyNot very likely, Holmes went to PNE because they are free spending and offered a lot more than STFC were prepared to pay so theres no way we would pay more than them for BP. Wouldn't want him back anyway!!Billy Paynter (correct spelling), is still contracted to Leeds so unless a fee is involved he won't be going anywhere for a trial.


30 May 2012 18:00:10
Henri Lansbury going for a season long loan to Cardiff City.
Jay Bothroyd also returning to bluebirds as Q.P.R are purchasing more strikers, this will either be loan or £1,000,000 fee.
Links with Newcastle. Nobody knows who for probably Haris Vuckic or Nile Ranger for loan.(5)(21)I think the bothroyd one is definately real as i heard from a close mate of jay's and he said dont be supprised by a Bluebirds reunion.....
He's a definate fans favourite down there!Jay bothroyd is past it and he is not a fan favorate he won't be coming back hes not worth £1000000. I will hate cardiff if we bring him backLike you know his mate lies nobody wants him backCardiff will have no Manager soon so do not expect too much in the way of transfers just yet.

30 May 2012 17:33:35
colchester close to signing 2 players one is believed to be former striker jamie cureton(5)(6)Oh jamie jamie would he be able to match odejayis 4 goals should think soYou can have him but don't expect to be seeing him run from box to box , his work rate is very poor and he is lazy but posses a good sweet left foot but not worth such a high price !Not sure about curo, why didn't we get him last season when he was available? I do know however, after speaking to him at kem izzets testimonial; that he wants to come back.I think the comment about lazy and sweet left foot were related to wordsworth rather than cureton? As no fee would be involved for Jamie; free agent. Will be 37 at start of season, may be past his best?I can't see this happening to be honest. Maybe as a last resort or a short-term deal until Christmas. Don't hold your break guys!


30 May 2012 17:26:59
Huddersfield are set to sign to get Mellis from Chelsea on a loan deal at the midfielder is complaining about the amount og game time he is getting(4)(14)Is this Jacob mellis who was sacked by Chelsea ?Mellis is a free agent after chelski sacked him after the firecracker incident .2/10 try again.Jacob mellis was released by Chelsea for misconductCarlie Austin is not good enough - was ok 2 seasons ago - has lost it by not playing enough.....

huddersfield set to sign charlie austin from burnley on 4 yr deal in next few days!! heard it hear first!(5)(21)Scraped up from L1 for a season in the sun,should learn to walk before you can run and hudders poor turnover(championship standards)will prevent them from affording the same wages as the bigger championship clubs(which is about 20 clubs)because of new rules for next season.From a burnley fan obviously as he's not been liked there since signing. Try again!You cant afford his £20k a week wagesCharlie Austin is not leaving and will be our main striker next season as Jay is leavingHe will stay we are selling jay thay wont let him goHave a look at the name Dean Hoyle and then decide if Huddersfield can afford his wages.....And who are Burnley? A third world Lancs Town.Huddrsfield are no way near as big as Burnley!! Dream on and hes worth 4m+Who says Austin isn't liked at burnley ? He's become an instant hit with the fans and he's guna b our main striker next season !Why would he leave to huddersfield?Austin wont leave this transfer window hes gunna wait to see how burnley start the season and re-asses his options in januaryAustin to stay at burnley, rhodes to leave huddersfield. lets see how you get on next year before slinging insults, your in with the big guns now and only for one season .up the claretsHuddersfield aren't as big as Burnley!? Thanks for the Friday laugh.

Burnley are NOT a big club.In with the big boys, where do you think Town have spent most of their history! Burnley horrible place, a dump. Best thing about Burnley, the roads to anywhere - even Halifax.Haha that is so funny coming from a Huddersfield fan . Huddersfields more ov a dump than burnley ! Haha I can't believe u think stty little Huddersfield is a vigger n better club and town than burnley u funny btards haThe highest paid player at burnley is jay Rodriguez on 12k so Austin isn't on 20kRight, stop bickering u 2... facts are towns history is massive with silverware packing the cabinets. yeah not cabinet, cabinets. burnley are mediocre club in a division where there just holding their own. yes i am a town fan and at the moment our ambition and money far outweighs your own. my moneys on a mid table finish for both. see u at turf moor.Does get rather heated on here dusnt one; calm down huddersfield boys wot, im sure one will be ok wont one in the championship wot. by jove stop worrying we avnt even kicked the old casey yet old boys; thats when you can start worrying. raaa raaaa us burnley boys love gravy, toodles poodles, up the claretsDont think its heated just find it strange that people keep slagging off town just cause were now in the championship. we will have a shot for the play offs, dont think we will get their, but again depends on who grayson brings in. will definatley not be relegation fodder though. i see dean hoyle consolidating the club for a shot at it the cson after.Burley, you cannot match our ground our fans our history, so get real . The mighty terriers will steam roll you next season, with some big signings. I am in the no and the town will surprise a few teams in the championship.Haha ok then mate we will c next season , keep on dreaming Huddersfield ! UTC

Now Rogers is Liverpool gaffa he has made it clear that he doesnt want to sign ANY of Swansea's players as they arnt world class.(10)(10)So the liverpool players are eh,lol.What about Sinclair, Sigurdsson, Vorm - not world class?Stick with World Class players like Downing and Henderson instead eh?Alan curtis to take over for swansea with huw jenkins not wanting anything to change footballing wiseLiverpool players are not world class,nor is rogers he wont last,out of his depth,sacking dalglish will bite the yanks in the arse.Most of Liverpools team aren't world class thats why they ended up where they did in the leagueLmfao, rogers leaves a decent football team for a team that lives in the past? swansea are a team of the future!

And no i aint a swansea fan, Stoke all the way.We should hijack the sigurrdsson deal and possibly steal joe allen/scott sinclair but only one of those twoAll 3 of those are world classWere did Swansea finishNor was alex ferguson when he began his reign at manchester united the lad needs time to develope at liverpool. This isnt a quick fix.Liverpool not allowed to sign any Swansea players until this time next year, both clubs agreed this in Rodgers' compensation package

Barnsley look set to offer former Sheffield United striker James Beattie a one week trial when the reds return to training on the 28th of june. Keith Hill is also set to make a third and final offer for Brighton defender Gordon Greer, but will not be pursuing intrest in Manchester Uniteds Oliver Norwood. An insider at the club has also informed me that they are not intrested in Lee Williamson of SUFC, or Chris O'Grady of SWFC and a move for Doncaster's James Coppinger would be too pricey.(5)(12)Think you mean Williamson isn't interested in Barnsley.We were interested in williamson when wilson was our gaffer. now he isnt good enough for the championship !Your not getting Greer face itWhy wouldn't he be? Most players are interested in moves to bigger clubs.I'd rather have paul o'grady then chris o'gray signin for barnsley cos paul hasn't played for rochdaleLee williamson is lookin to leave sheff u due to big wage cuts at the club. he wants more then sheff u are willin to offer him


30 May 2012 17:02:19

Middlesbrough will battle blackpool for the signing of paul Anderson from Forrest on a free transfer(9)(5)Hope the boro sign him he's a fantastic player would get in our team straight away.I agree, excellent player with great potential, certainly fits the profile of the players Mogga's after.Not heard much about him, but we do need creative wingers so if he is decent would be a good additionForerst fan here... Not the most gifted winger, however bags of pace and give 110% every week. Great player for forest... Be sadly missed....Blackpool will get him as holloway is staying at the clubBlackpool already have anderson. unanounced yet - and i have heard this from an insider.


30 May 2012 17:01:02
Portsmouth to sign:
Sonko, James and Diop as all are on a free.(4)(14)They still need paying wages!So what happened about lack of money wat about wages they need to sell pratically all their players and their ground but the cant sell their training ground because its my schools sports ground then they can buy or they could just be boughtWe've got to sell players and bring in players who will play for cheap, those three are getting on a bit so might take whatever come their way. We've sold Pearce and Ward... do you expect us not to have a squad next season or something? muppet.Ha ha ha ha ha ha .........sufferPompey will look to build a team based on YOUNG free transfer players, so the guys mentioned above will not be on Appleton's list and their wages would be too high anyway.No Thanks!


30 May 2012 17:00:29
Paolo Di Canio today signed a 2 year contract extension with Swindon. he wanted the boards backing and wanted to know if the plan was the same now as when he came (Championship in 3 years), the board has backed him 100%, he is planning on bringing in 7 or 8 players before the pre season starts!! There are NO money worries and in fact the news on the investment front from the board is 100% excellent!!
Great news for Swindon Town FC, all of those false rumours can now be laid to rest. STFC are finally back on the up.(15)(7)Swindon still have money problems and soon gthe checkens will come home to roost. They spend more than any team in the league last year and cannot servive.Do some research mate...Swindon's board are rich, they have listened to PDC and J Wray and fully agrred to back their plans. There are no money worrys at Swindon....Yes we spent more on wages (However, over the last two seasons we have made more on TRANSFER FEES than we have spent), But despite your desperate attempts at straw clutching the Swindon board can afford it...there is a long term plan in place. STFC fans are very happy right now....we have no money issues, we will soon see the arrival of some quality players.To the Oxford fan who cant spell get your facts right the club have agreed a plan with Paolo and his budget and the backers we have at the club are very wealthy guys so your rumour stories are unfounded.
The club walked away from sigining Holmes as he wanted stupid money a six figure signing on fee and wanted stupid wages so one thing is clear we wont be held to ransom by any player and Holmes is good but not that good and i would have Ritchie any day over Holmes. so good luck Preston with Holmes.Spell properly Oxford fan its chickens and survive by the way your story is rubbish there are no money worries at STFC just jealous stupid Oxford fans setting rumours.The other thing these people who claim money troubles and over spending seem to forget is that League Two rules stipulate that you have to stay within a budget which is worked out by your income and as we had good gate reciepts last season it meant we could afford to spend that money on wages.

Liam Dickinson is set to sign a 2 year contract with Shrewsbury Town following his release from Southend United.(9)(8)He was released?! Thought he was one of their top scorers!Yeah if we kept him his wages would automatically increase and we didn't want thatNow he's going to be a salop player.Could see that happening he said if he left southend it would be to a team up north'Dicko' got slated all over twitter for injuring Cansdell Sherriff back in Jan and Turner doesn't go for bad egos so probably not.


30 May 2012 16:49:07
just heard that manchester united are planning to make 2 bids for 2 more dortmund players. kagawa is basically a done deal but united have been impressed by mario gotze and mats hummels. it is thought that dortmund would be willing to accept a combined total of 45 million for both players. if i was fergie i would go for it because there is so much potential in them 2 lads and could bolster united's midfield and defence. i have also been told that man utd are looking at Fernando llorente to partner wayne rooney in attack, this would be a brilliant partnership in my opinion because wayne has been waiting for a strike partner who is powerfull like him and can bully defenders into mistakes, fantastic addition to united if they can pull it off. there is a rumour that pique could on his way bck to united because united had the option to buy him bck when they sold him to barca. would be good to see him bck at united because he has really matured as a player but i think it is very doubtful myself, but ya never know.(4)(19)Utter rubbish.them 4 players would cost in excess of £100mill.united dont have that type of money and anyway neither hummels orgotze will leave dortmund this summerA partner for Rooney will be no good if Rooney leaves Old Trafford this summer. I believe SAF not averse to this happening,


30 May 2012 16:48:53
Shrewsbury Town are still in prolonged contract negotiations with Ryan Hall over a possible move.

Southend have agreed to let the winger go for 50k+Jon Taylor.(6)(5)Shrewsbury wouldn't let Jon Taylor leave.I would. Hes been rubbish. Wont cross or take anyone onJust let them have taylorLove that Shrewsbury still think they have a cat-in-hell's chance of signing Ryan Hall. Sturrock has already said no-one will be leaving for small fees, it will take substantial offers for the club to sell any key player and in any case Hall knows he can do much, much better than Shrewsbury. If Hall signs for them I'll visit the Greenhous Meadow next season and streak......

As for this nonsense further down how are Northampton a bigger club than Southend United? They have a small ground with very similar attendances to SUFC. WE have more ambition in that we are still attempting to finalise the deal to move to a new 22,000-seater stadium. We also averaged 10,000+ when we were in the Championship only 6 years ago. At this moment in time we are of a similar size to Northampton, that may very well not be the case in the near future.Good player ryan hall jonny won't go!Not let players go cheaply? you let your best striker leave on a free transfer?He was nowhere near our best striker anyway we didn't want to pay his wages as we didn't feel he was worth it!

Jon Shaw to join Oxford after telling Luton he wants to give the football league another go. Tom Craddock set to join Luton after becoming 3rd chice CF behind Shaw & Constable.(3)(8)And when is this going to be announced?Shaw plays for gatesheedLuton are after him aswell therefore I think he's referring to them to say he wants to play in the football league.

Norwich signings in the summer:
Kyle Naughton - Spurs
Curtis Davies - Birmingham
Henri Lansbury - Arsenal
Dani Pacheco - Liverpool
Gary Hooper - Celtic will buy Rhodes to replace
Scott Sinclair - Swansea - Not signing a new deal as Brendans out but wants a similar club to Swansea and PL is willing to pay £6m+Morison for the winger
maybe a few more(16)(21)Henri Lansbury signed permanently for West Ham last summer!Curtis Davies isn't going anywhereWas going well until you got to hooper and Sinclair. Despite a good first season Norwich will be found out and are relegation fodder my prediction for 20th placeLiverpool's new manager will decide if Dani Pacheco will leave the club.Lets correct a few previous comments:
Henri Lansbury is still an Arsenal Player and rumour has it that Norwich are trying to secure his services.
Curtis Davis will move if the right fee is paid for him.
Hooper may well come to Norwich, as for 20th place, you must be kidding, your prediction has utter jealousy written all over it, no doubt you are an another disgruntled Ipswich fan.
Dani Pacheco has been on the fringes and it does look liker Liverpool are willing to sell him on, regardless of management situation.
Sinclair - no thanks not worth anything like £6MHooper will not leave Celtic, especially for NorwichNot sure if Brendan Rodgers will have much of a say over comings and goings.It would be good if we could keep hooper and buy rhodes, that would be some strike forceDani Pacheco will leave rhodes will stay in england no way will he go to scotland even stay at huddersfield next season who i see as a playoff team next yearHenry Lansbury was on a season loan at West HamHenri Lansbury did no such thing. he was on loan. I do hope you don't support west ham because you should know that.I said that you would finish dead last and I'm an Everton fan so no not jealous at all just think the bubble will burst for you Swansea are a far better side, QPR look like they are getting it together and I recon they will be safe next season. Reading look consistent the other two I expect to struggle but still think they have stronger sides than Norwich and I seriously expect Holt to fade away big donkey who is one of the worst divers in the Prem. I don't care either way about Norwich just don't think your teams that good.Lansbury not signed for west hamLansbury is on loan from Arsenal, he isn't signed permanently. The Scott Sinclair one is ridiculousNorwich relegation fodder? when we were in league one, people said we would struggle to get out of that league. when we got promoted to they championship people said we'd finish around mid table. when we got promoted to the prem we were second favourites to go you see a pattern emerging? You really don't know what you're talking about'QPR look like they are getting it together'

Qpr struggle to get 11 players together that can last 90 minutes without getting sent off! Also Norwich beat qpr and swansea both times last season and finished ahead of qpr and on the same points as swansea. If anyones going to struggle out of those 3 teams i can assure you it wont be norwich.And holt one of the worst divers in the prem coming from an everton fan, have you watched jelavic lately?As for the everton fan above funny you couldn't beat.norwich also funny a donkey called grant scored against you in both games. You say swansea have a better team even though we beat them twice.Norwich fans are funny not totally agreeing with the everton fan but you look weak rode your luck last season and now look to be loosing your manager think you will be going downSinclare and sig will go to liverpool in my view with dempsey and elm but i think they may be only big signings (notice i dont go over the top saying hulk or bale or anything rediculous) but would love to see them an LFC (sinclare ect.) Plus reading wont get near sig and norwich wot get near sinclare!!Yeah qpr struggled last time round. But I will give them credit with ten men. They
Beat a few good teams at the end. Watch
Out for them next season. Your managers just walked out by the way. Your down you yellow canariesI herd ronaldo's going to leeds united? just a rumour


30 May 2012 16:45:29
Swansea targeting Karl Robinson to replace Brendan Rodgers, Huw Jenkins always chooses young, ambitious coaches and Karl Robinson fits the bill, but would also guarantee that the Swans style of football stays(12)(8)Karl Robinson has today committed himself to MK Dons for next season he loves the club and will not leave until he gets them into the championshipMichael Laudrup please


30 May 2012 16:45:11

30 May 2012 16:30:05
i heard Reading are in talks with Celtic regarding a fee for Charlie Mulgrew(9)(19)Has sigs transfer gone through thenIs this the same reading that were buying izzy it the start of the weekWhy would Celtic sell Charlie Mulgrew? Why would he leave?Celtic are i a mickey mouse league thats yCeltics young POTY won't join reading as he's to highly rated this is from a reading fanCeltic might be in a mickey mouse league but why would a player from a BIG club go to a mickey mouse team?? players only go to your type of clubs for the pay day.Mulgrew rubbish im a wolves fan he was part of the swap for lee naylor n he done nothing n that was in the championship now hes playing league 1 football so he looks goodMaybe he'd rather go to Old Trafford than to grounds like Tynecastle in a boring SPLSome of you English make me laugh. You talk about a two way race contiually. Well, considering England has 10 times the population, 100 times the money, how many 'different teams' have won your 'illustrious' league over the last 10 years!!! Glass house and stones!!!
Secondly, there is no doubt that the English have a better stabdard, no one denies this so shut your mouths, but will say this, take a look at some of the players you have taken from the Scottish league or made thier name here, aain none at the very top level, but think about what you say you numb nuts!
Maloney - Couldnt get a game at Celtic
Fortune - Coudnt get a game at Celtic
Larsson - World class!
Gordon - Hearts to Sunderland
Hutton - Rangers to Tottenham
Boomsong - Rangers to Newcastle
Fuller - From Hearts !
Jelavic - eded up being top goal scorer in league since transfer !
Caldwell - Wigan captain struggling to get a game at Celtic
James Mackie - Aberdeen to QPR !
..............................and on and on.....
Silly idiots !


30 May 2012 16:24:47

Saints interested in Forster from Newcastle for 2.5milliob(16)(11)Good keeper if you get him, but let to believe he is signing for Celtic, but who knows where he will end up.


30 May 2012 16:20:42
Chelsea will steal Kagawa from under the noses of Man Utd, just like they did with Hazard(12)(25)Unlikely, Chelsea were the only club willing to match his £170,000 p/w wage demands.Why do they need two playmakers? Hazard wants to play every single game possible...he won't be doing that if Kagawa is their breathing down his neck...Nonsense.he will be a united player.chelsea cant go buying every player all the top clubs wont get you everywhere


30 May 2012 16:16:40
Gary Roberts will definately sign for Oldham this week after his release from Uddersfelt, this quality signing will inturn entice Robbie Simpson to sign his contract as he believes this is the pedigree of player that should be coming to Boundary Park.(9)(13)Rotherham ready to offer him a contractBe a great if oldham get himWhy would he go rotherham when he can stay in league one with oldhamWe need some good players finally


30 May 2012 16:14:11
With Brendan Rodgers almost out( :( )Scott Sinclair is stumbling over signing a new contract so Swansea may cash in on him and buy Matty Phillips and Albert Adomah after already signing Siggy. Sinclair is being chased by Arsenal, Totenham and Newcastle but may decide to move to a similar club to Swansea with an up and coming hungry team like Wigan, Southampton, Reading all interested. But PPaul Lambert's Norwich look to take his fancy with a £6m+Steve Morison bid.(20)(8)Probably likely but we'll never dieDoubt itCan we have 6m and your manager?Could join his brother at southampton ?Sold for £6m i'll drive him there myself !!
Congrats you've just bought yourself a donkeySiggy not yet a done deal.Medical was due on Friday!I hate to say it but I can see Sinclair at NorwichThe Siggurdson deal is not done and now Brenda is gone he won't sign.Siggy hasn't signed on the dotted line yet!I would like to see scott sinclar at norwich but I reckon he's on for bigger things otbcHis contract Will be up by the transfer window opening. there will be no cashing in. he will either go to a new club on a free or sign a new contract at swansea.I signed howson and Sinclair on football manager, before howson signed for norwich. I think sinclair is a definate no for norwich. He will stay up north due to his gf living up there. Or he could just stay at swansea were he's happyHis brother plays for Saints youth team I believe (may be cousin?). Rumours say Saints are after Ince or Phillips, but Sinclair might be more realistic if Sinclair wants out as it's not as far to move and if he already has family here that may help. Personally not sure he'd leave Swansea though.Lambert has loyalty at Norwich Rodgers hasn'tWe wont sign sinclair! Be good if we did but it wont happen. SaintsfcSigurdsson hasn't signed yet still got a medical to do.Siggurdson is quite likely to move to liverpool now, brendan rogers managed him at reading as well so are good friends6m for Sinclair?... where do we sign?... oh and you can keep Morison.Arsenal newcastle and tottingham only sign good players not scot sinclair"Lambert has loyalty at Norwich Rodgers hasn't"

Hmmmm this is starting to look like an extremely embarrassing comment...Im a Reading fan and personally I can see Sinclair moving to Liverpool with Rodgers. They have a good working relationship and Sinclair fits the criteria for new signings under FSG.Brenda did not sign Siggurdsson at Reading. He may have given him his break in the first team but McDermott spotted him in Iceland and McDermott is also the one who made him the player he is. Brenda did nothing to better Reading. He had us sinking like a stone.Who's brenda? your mrs?This would be a bad signing for us saints. Ok I understand that he is young and premiership experience but seems a bit to much of a big time player for me and dont want to do a QPR where the players end up disrupting the changing room. Just my opinion though :-)Wigan are not on the up.


30 May 2012 16:11:48
Southampton looking to offload Dan Seabourne to Brighton & Aaron Martin on loan to Blackpool

Looking to sign Scott Dann and more ambitiously Ryan Shawcross

Other targets are the afore mentioned Tom Ince & Jay Rodriguez

Also look for saints to sign a back up keeper and attacking wide man(10)(9)I've heard shawcross supports saints, is this true ? If so could happen but not likelyRyan Shawcross to Southampton :-) Absolute classicShawcross...........captain of Stoke to Southampton. Possibly the most ludicrous transfer rumour ever. Supports Man U by the way. Southampton fans really are deluded :-)There is no way they will loan Martin out as he is one of our top central defendersUh, Shawcross is from Chester, so I doubt he is a fan.
Also I am a saints fan, not sure that Martin would be going out on loan. We need him for cover.Shawcross is a man utd fanNot that much of a classic mateI see Shawcross a couple of times a week in a Thai restaurant in Nantwich. Can't wait to tell him this :-)Ryan Shawcross, would definatly like to take a step backwards and play for saints... Grow up you idiot, Shawcross is admired by teams such as Liverpool, United, Spurs and even Man city at one point. The only way he is going is forward!Seabourne may go. Martin won't be loaned. Dann would be a decent signing. We have no chance of getting Shawcross.Shawcross! Not a chance he could play for a top six team. Be good thoughWe do enjoy our daily Southampton rumours really are a good laugh xDShawcross is overrated IMO, hes a solid cb, but top 6? suggesting that hes up there with europes best? doubt it. as a saints fan, id like to say that stoke fans are almost as deluded as us! plus half of the rumours on here are plastic fans or skates!Have to say Shawcross is as good a centre half as I've seen at Spurs since Stoke came up. Stoke fans aren't deluded at all.......he is a magnificent young player who would easily play in the top sides. Would have him at Spurs in a heartbeat. Seems a real calm lad with his feet on the ground at Stoke.I must of read heard it wrong haha all this time I though shawcross was a saints fan -.-Ive heard this too. Personally think this could be true"There is no way they will loan Martin out as he is one of our top central defenders"

Are you having a laugh? There's no way he's cutting it in the Prem. Absolute carthorse.Love Martin to bits, he is a lovely guy and represents Southampton and gives any young player great ambition. However, the lad is a donkey and there is no chance that the fella will get any minutes this season. I must clarify that he is a lovely guy and half decent player but not good enough for the premSouthampton are much bigger club than Stoke hope he signs for us at newcastleTo the Stoke fan at the top if he signed for saints it would be a forward step from your club we got more fans than you in the championship than you in the prem .I remember the season you got promoted to prem you took 150 fans to st marys and had home gates of 13000 so don't be silly go by factsTom Ince is young, english, rapid and incredibly skillful and will cost at least 5M as he will go onto score 20+ goals in the Championship next season.Funny that? because phillips has already stressed he is not leaving , as has the chairman. stop these pathetic rumors please


30 May 2012 16:08:07
Preston to sign:
Nathan Doyle - Free
Andy Gray - Free(7)(8)Your turning into barnsley reject fcHope we get doyle he was great on loan last season!Untrue westley said no more central mids.Im sure I saw andy gray in preston few weeks agho in his car the reg was A9 GRY


30 May 2012 16:07:15
Celtic will complete the signing of Jordan Rhodes in the next week...a fee of 4million pounds plus add-ons has already been agreed between Huddersfield and the Glasgow giants. Rhodes will be given the No.7 jersey and form a frightning strike partnership with fellow goal machine Gary Hooper.(10)(6)4 million! You funny little man, jog on back to the tinpot league fool :o)£4 mil, dream on sunshine!!!, up the Town.I dont know about the rumour exactly but he doesnt deserve the No.7, give him No.17 if he comes and let him earn the No.7Bangura is number 7 so how can it be given to rhodes?Bangura is number player wheres #7 as it is Larssons number, only i high profile person would wear it and Rhodes might be able to with his potential. the 4mill plus add ons is true as it was stated to Celtic by thier manager....if you think he would go for 6-9mill your joking.
I still dont know about the kid but Celtic do wan thim as thier #1 transfer target and him and Hooper would be a great partnership...goals gaaalooorrrBangura is 14Bangura is number 14 m8. woodsybhoyTinpot lge, yea no probs u can stick your players if u think yous can ask 4 mil for a 3rd div player lol. Especially when jelavic was 5 mil been crap in the spl but comes down to the overhyped epl and looks a steal. Plus celtic got hooper for what 2.2. I think fans of huddeswoteva ther called should give themselves a slap before slaggin the big clubs of euro footy fan wise tradition etc. Though theyve neva played euro football but thers a big world out ther past englands borders. Had to laugh chelsea won the cl playin the way a team from the spl would get slatted for neva mind a team with 100 mil invested in it. Plus the english team is rank n will struggle against nations with crap lgs n smaller populations mmmm surly not englands won everything since time beganHmm, scotland won when ......, oh yea ,never , and who u got in the euros ,and celtic would struggle in lge 1 ,never mind the chmpionshipYa Celtic would struggle in league 1 when they put up a fight against Altetico M(the winners) and Juventis in europa league missing out by 1 point, so by your thinking they should have lost 7-0 but they tied them and made them work to win....they play against better clubs and play with entertaining football but would struggle against clubs in a crapy league ya good thinking there.....if you take off you epl glasses and get rid of your arrogence you might see how good they are but we wont hold our breath. so just wait and see what they do in CL {Ed001's Note - every year lower league teams beat Prem teams in the League and FA Cup, it is easy to raise your performance for cup matches. You can't use that as a yardstick, sorry.}Tinpot lge indeed lol, can't get you biting can I :op face it sunshine, you play at League 1 level up there in the SPL so it would now be a step backwards for Jordan Rhodes to go to you, next please...........Ed 01 is it the mighty liverpool you support? What happened the last time Celtic played them in a cup competition? Oh that's right we beat them and dumped them out on way to final! {Ed001's Note - what's your point? I was just saying only a fool thinks one off cup games is any way to judge the strength of a team. I have seen non-league sides give Man Utd a good game, but there is no way they can be considered even close to being as good. But instead you have to try and be clever and prove what a bitter boy you are.}Bitter no I think it's you who's bitter! A seen your comment on Celtic site!If any of you realy think celtic is a big club then you are fed in the head ok if its your team and you love them and support them but dont live in a dream world. and the only reason you give teams like man utd a good game is because you rise to the ocation a small team agaist the giants i seem to remember leeds beating united at old trafford 2 years ago dose that mean they are as good or big as them i think not


30 May 2012 16:06:35
West Ham have bid 1.2 million for Yakubu which is likely to be accepted. The Hammers are also set to sign George McCartney and bid for Keiran Richardson. If they are to sign then the deals should be complete by Sunday next week (today is Wednesday 30th May)



30 May 2012 16:01:44
Richard Stearman is looking to move back closer to family in Leicester. Stearman has always had a good relationship with staff and fans of Leicester City and is rumored to be retunring for around 1.2 Million(2)(10)I wish he was wicked for us before!I can tell you that you deffo do NOT speak for me as one of the fans that want him to come back, I can tell you now that Stearman does NOT have a good relationship with the city fans , not after what he said to the Birmingham evening paper when he first moved to Wolves, plus the fact that it's a little baffling that people really rate him as quality, he was poor in his last season with us and could'nt wait to get out the door, but, skill wise, he aint all that! he was always only average.But then under Pearson, we only seem to be signing "average players"Stearman is from Wolverhampton.He may have been born in wolverhampton but he was raised in leicestershire and his family still live there! He joined the leicester youth academy at 11 so wouldn't be surprised if he wanted to return to the foxes



30 May 2012 15:53:37
Along with the 7m Southampton have offered to swap Jack Cork for Burnley star Jay Rodriguez(3)(24)As a Burnley fan I would be happy as Larry to welcome Cork back as part of the deal but dont see that happening as surely Cork himself would be worth around 2 million at least.What a stupid rumour jack cork is one of our best midfielders and this would bring it down to 5 milAbsolute nonsense.Straight cash deal involving 5m up front 1m in jan and another million if saints stay up. Cork and chaplow not included in the deal.Jack Cork just had a great season, he is an U21 international and a good 3 or 4 years from peaking. He is probably worth at least 4mill and wouldn't drop a division. Totally made up story, makes no sense!Rubbish cork is saints best holding midfielder and is only 22. Also I think he will be great in the Prem.Remember he spent a season and a half at Burnley. Still doubt it.Another skate again. We will not sell Jack Cork he has been fantastic for us and will be a lot more important next year than Jay Rod. SorryCork has had a great season at the saints anyway we can't do a qpr we need to buy yes but we can't change a league 1 and championship promotion teamJack cork is better than jay rod

30 May 2012 15:50:18
After Paul jewell making his 1st signing today in Elliott Hewitt his attention will turn to finding a new number 1. Jewell reportedly has held talks with Guzan after his release from villa,but could now switch his attention to Ben amos(6)(8)Amos just signed a new 3 year deal at united.Unlikely he'll go for Amos, who's just signed a 3-year deal. PJ has said he doesn't want another loanee GK this year, not after last seasonBen Amos has signed a new deal at Man U and will be 3rd choice goalkeeper with Kuszczak leaving on a free2nd ward signed from portsmouth


30 May 2012 15:36:47
Chris hougton for Swansea(11)(13)No blues will refuse any offer for him unless substantial compensationHave it on good authority we are getting Holloway!Gus Poyet will be next Swansea manager if the board and fans want someone to carry on the good work of Rodgers. Brighton play same style to Swansea. Rodgers sent his son to play and develop under Gus at Brighton so that should say it all really!


30 May 2012 15:30:39
Nottingham Forest winger Paul Anderson in talks with Blackpool, as the Seasiders see him as an ideal replacement for Matt Phillips, who will be leaving this summer.(9)(2)Good. He has really lost his way at forest and look like a headless chicken most of the timeMatty Philips won't be leaving he will stay with inceThe boro n cardiff r also in the hunt for him as well. hope the boro sign him. utbPhilips not going ince not going ollie in talks with oyston and looking very positive this is fact at time of writing all happy to give one gud crack next year- if not promoted then things will change-all from steve thomo blackpool 2nd in comand.


30 may 2012 15:26:53
yakubu's most likely place to be next season is reading. although there has been interest from souuthampton and play off winners west ham.(11)(12)No its notHe will be at westham,I like yakubu and the deal seems quite likely so if it goes ahead then I'm happy with it...i also want to sign anyone that saints wantBid has been accepted from West Ham UnitedTrue not linked with Southampton as they are getting Rodriguez and west ham have been linked with other strikers so is only really reading that want him.


30 May 2012 15:23:33

Reading Transfers News:
Yakubu - Blackburn - 1 million
Chris Gunter - Nottingham Forest - 2.5 million
Adrian Mariappa - Watford - 3 million
Matt Phillips - Blackpool - 2.5 million
Carlos Sanchez - Valenciennes - Free
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield - 4 million(11)(21)If Adomah is worth 3m and rodriguez is worth 7m think again my friend on Matt PhillipsWorth! What is anybody worth with the new rules? Fee's will come down of that there is no doubt.Gunter = TerribleWait till forest takeover before you say anything about forestPhillips is not worth double yakubu plusReading won't get our player he will go forward not backMatt Phillips 2.5M you mad? He is worth at least 5m and anda reasonable fee would be 8-10M


30 May 2012 15:20:02
Reading could put in a bid for Gylfi Sigurdsson after his move to Swansea could fall apart as Brendan Rodgers looks set to take the Liverpool job(14)(17)If Sigurdsson's move to Swansea does end up falling through (as its already around 80% done) the only destination will be following Brendan to Liverpool, no chance he will go back to Reading! Just because he started there it doesnt mean he wants to go backHe never wanted to leave and has been back to watch Reading play multiple times.I think you'll find Mr Sigurdsson at Anfield too !It's not just that he started at Reading. The club scouted him out, and gave him his chance to perform. He still loves the club and came to many home games last season. Unlikely that he will come back, but I wouldn't completely rule it out!Oh big wow so he's been to watch reading, Alex Ferguson came to watch Swansea but that doesn't mean he wants to join us does it?Yes but Alex Ferguson has no connection to Swansea and was obviously there scouting. Gylfi loves Reading and never wanted to leave.Liverpool is a better club (fact , you can not deny ) and with rodgers and reding don't have much money and if they sign him they wont sign many others


30 May 2012 15:11:34
Blackpool interested in taking Rory Donnelly for a season long loan deal.
Also Bednar signing a new contract for 1 year with an option of a further year.
Brett Ormerod to be given a coaching role at the club.

In The Know(5)(7)What a load of rubbish , donnely has already said he is going to stay and fight for hi 1st team place and for bednar staying you have no chance he will be of to leicster its in all the papers down here.Red faced blackpool fans lets see how pale faced you lot are when you come down next year,go into they prem and you think your massive,the after next its champions league no doubt-yeh whatever.

Hearing from a good source that Lutons Keith Keane is having talks with Preston and AFC Wimbledon(10)(5)I think he would be a gd signing for afc Wimbledon, how much are th wages thoI'd say he would be great in League 2 don't know what he looked like week in week out for Luton but he always looked like one of their steadiest players when I saw himYeh, I say him play twice, would bring some steel to the backHe is out of contract at luton and wants to play league footballSign him up wombles!


30 May 2012 14:56:40
swansea city will get gus poyet, lee clark or martinez to replace rodgers if/when he leaves for liverpool! i hope brendan stays for at least another year but it seems unlikely as liverpool seem very keen to sign him so i speak for every swans fan when i say ! THERES ONLY ONE BRENDAN RODGERS! GOOD LUCK!(5)(7)I wrote this post and i was meant to put ian holloway aswell sorryFeel quite let down by Brendan. He will soon fall out of favour with the liverpool fans and be sacked. Then without a club. Why not stay with us and be successful! And furthermore Gylfi will probably not sign. Great. One of the most dissapointing days as a Jack. :(There is no way Martinez will go back to Swansea for 2 reasons: 1. He's just pledged his future to Wigan for at least this season 2. Swansea fans despise him after he left them.I think he has made a terrible mistake swansea are a good club with loyal fans,liverpool are a nightmare ,mad expectations out of all proportion to their spending power,no hope of catching city/chelsea /man u/arsenalReds fan here (sorry) you were my favourite team to watch last season and I sincearly hope the change in manager doesn't set you back. You played great great football and I hope Brendan doesn't bring any players with him from Swansea not because there not good enough I think most of the team is great but because your players play well together and would hate to think my club jeperdised any chances of Swansea improving on last season. Good luck next season and hope you get the right man.

Eric the redNo worries... 5m compensation for Rodgers, plus 7m we won't now spend on Siggurdsson, plus about 7.5m merit payments after finishing 11th in the league... the new manager will have funds... trust in Huw Jenkins to make another inspired choice... happy days!Nice to see some fans appreciate wat a manager or player has done for their club and not start hating on them as soon as they leave.every player and manager wanna be at the highest level and when the opportunity comes you have to take itI wrote this post and i agree with you all, dont get me wrong i hope he does well at liverpool but the way he left was abit disrespectful dont you think? i personally think we will be fine but i think brendan has made the biggest mistake of his life, he has left a club where everone loved him, and gone to a club where he will just be another manager.


30 May 2012 14:56:17
I can confirm Barnet will tomorrow make Jamie Cureton their new signing, cracking signing(8)(10)Bit old isnt he


30 May 2012 14:53:42
Holt to Stoke(11)(20)He's not leaving - FACTStoke dso NOT want Holt can guarantee you. Have a far better striker lined upI think his transfer request says different!

FACTHe's leaving - FACTWhen ever anyone says FACT on this website its normally ste, lets be clear on this subject he already stated that he does not want to go anywhere he just wants to improve his contract and it will happen because Norwich want him to stay.Erm..............Norwich as in Lambert ??Who is this amazing striker?Stoke have no interest in fat boy Holt. He is trying to engineer a move to villa so he can go down with them instead of Naaaarch.

Manchester UTD obviously feeling slightly embarrassed that Hazard did not opt for to sign for them and have since stepped up their efforts to secure the signatures of the following world class players:

Shinji Kagawa - £12 million (deal done)
Wesley Sneijder - £16 million (deal 95% done)
fernando llorente _£19 million (Deal agreed with Bilbao, personal terms still to be agreed).

All Financed with the departures of:

Berbatov to PSG for £9 million
Owen - released (free up wages)
Park - Sunderland £6.5 million
Anderson - Sporting Lisbon £8 million.

So the rest of the money for the players coming in comes from the £35 million budget Mr Gillet already outlined for Sir Alex.

Question is - Is this enough investment and the right buys for Man U to win back the title?(13)(31)Would cost more for sneijder and llorente than those figures quoted. I doubt park or anderson will be sold.Glazer?Park ji sung is worth a lot more than 6.5 mil to united. You're obviously not a football personAdd about anothert 10 mill each to sneijder and llorente and youll be closer but they still wont happen.sneijder will be where he gets the most money and llorenete is settled and happy in bilbao

With Burnley looking set to recieve £7m for Jay Rodriguez manager Eddie Howe will look to invest in the squad. Howe has already had bids turned down for certain players but with the added funds to spare he will look to land his wish lsit.

Paul Taylor, Peterborough, £1.75m
Jason Shackell, Derby, £2.5m
Marc Pugh, Bournemouth, £850,000k
Adam Clayton, Leeds, £700,000k
Greg Halford, Portsmouth, £250,000k(9)(13)Clayton will cost more than £700,000. more like £2m£2 million get real, Warnock has already said he can leave for £700 grandAs soon as 7 million has been mentioned for Jay Rod, the fees for Burnley targets appears to have doubled! Shackell, possible but the rest, not at those pricesYour Not Getting Shackell... We Dont Have To Sell So We Wont... Get Real!When did warnock say clayton can leave for £700,000? He said if a team comes in with a good bid and he is able to get a few good players in with that he can go.No your mistaken he said he's looking to buy a player for £500 grand who is of higher standard than Clayton so it would be right to sell Clayton for a similar prices.Lie about warnock letting clayton go for 700k,he has a £2mill price tag put on him when he went on transfer list.Warnock put statement on leeds web site saying clayton will not go for less than £2 mill and that is cheap but that has not put Leicester off as they will bid that much according to reports.Grgg Halford would be a real bargain at that price but he is on about £20k per week so getting him would still involve a lot of money.Adam Clayton is worth easily 1.2MClayton isn't very good and was rubbish at Posh.Bourenmouth should of swaped ings instead of mcquiod

No Championship team in their right mind is going to be interested in him.Izale Mcleod is a possibility, but i have it on good authority that another Mr Hearn from Grimsby, will be in the building very soon.


30 May 2012 13:30:34
Leyton Orient manager Russell Slade is expected to announce the signing of an unnamed striker tomorrow.

Slade has been actively seeking to add extra firepower to his strikeforce after releasing Jamie Cureton and Jonathan Tehoue.

The O's have been linked with a number of forwards already this summer, with Calvin Andrew, Jabo Ibehre and Jeff Goulding three potential signings for Orient.

However, it looks as if former Bury striker Mike Grella is the most likely candidate. Slade has been a big admirer of Grella for a number of years and looks set to have pipped a number of other sides to the signature of the American.

SkySports today announced that Grella has rejected a contract at Gigg Lane to sign for an unnamed club; the deal to take Grella to Brisbane Road looks set to be finalised tomorrow.(3)(9)Can you tell grella that, he is in New YorkRumour as it he is set to become pne 12 signing i hope its not trueGrella would be gone by January lolHe's signing for PrestonSigning for old manager at ScunnyGrella has been house hunting in the Essex area, and has also been seen in the Royal Cafe, Leyton High Road.Well he has signed for someone regardless, whether its at the os only time will tell, but would welcome it if true.According to grella himself he hasnt agreed terms with any club yet and also he is in New York at the min!Grella seen in leyton?
He is in the big apple
He was also seen in thunderbirdsApparently Grella has joined blackpool?

Adam Johnson loan deal to Sunderland hinges on percentage of wages subsidised by Man City. City are wanting Sunderland to pay a bigger amount of Johnson's wages, with SAFC trying to negotiate that the contribution of a higher percentage will come off any subsequent transfer fee from the 'option to buy' at the end of next season.(20)(13)Would b amazing safc4everI heard he wasnt interested in sunderland as it would be a 'step down'Any club would be a step down from man city as they won the leagueEven if you offered to pay all his 50k wages he would stay with City.So he would stay as a fringe player at city even though his family are all sunderland fans and he could be near them if he came to sunderland? heard he is close to signing on loan with an option to buy after the year loan finishesHow is it a step down when he's not getting games at city, and come to Sunderland his boyhood club a play week in week out!?He will get more time at City next season with their champions league commitments. Just because a player is boyhood fan doesnt mean he will want to give up Champions League football with the League Champions to sign for Sunderland.

Swindon have been told they will have to pay Tottenham Hotspur 500K if they want to keep John Bostock permanently.
Di Canio is waiting on clearance from the Swindon board for budgets next season, and will spend a sizeable chunk of his budget on Bostock who he thinks will be key in transforming his side from and 4-4-2 to a more fluid 4-2-3-1(10)(9)Bostock is crap not good enough for league 1 why do you think wednesday got ridNo way will we pay 500k for a player more likely to be a season long loan.To the wedensday fan well he played a few games for us and he did well. Perhaps it was your style of football that you played why he didnt play well for you but he was good for us.The rumour I heard was a permanent deal for a lot less than 500K!!, Spurs will want the option of first refusal should he start living up to his 'early' potential for a price that will allow Swindon to make a small profit. Bostock is willing to drop leagues on a short term deal with a contract clause that will allow Swindon to trigger an extension should they get promoted to the Championship.

Nick Powell thinks the right club for him to develop at is Norwich... The deal will be done in the coming days(10)(33)I hope you're right.LOL! "Man Utd, Spurs, and Arsenal all want me...but I think I'll join Norwich"

This is just like when Hazard said he'd join Tottenham as they were the right club for him to develop.Depends how important playing time is to him, he would get more of it with Norwich obviously. It wouldnt be that crazy if he signed with a fee release clause so he gets PL exposure, Norwich get a return on their investment and he gets to leave to Man Utd when he is readyAre yes a can see it Norwich or Manu (who have a good track record for bringing through youngsters for a big team) that would be such a hard choice LMAOHe might as well join Southampton instead of Norwich look at the players they have produced bald Walcott chamberlain etcHe wants to play football not warm a seatWhy not? At least he'll be getting first team football in the Premier League. What's the point of him being signed by Man U, go straight back on loan to Crewe to play League One football, go back to United for pre season and then get loaned out again, which is the likely case? Norwich have good facilities and a good coaching set up that will develop him. Just look at Grant Holt.Powell to Norwich, Shawcross to Soton

Some comedy gold on here today :-)The lad whould be better of at bottom half of prem l team he will play more games then get better resevre team football will do him no good at all.Could see Powell signing for utd and then loaned out to Norwich but Deffo not on a permanent deal

Giuseppe Rossi seems to be the "very-highly rated" striker linked with Stoke. Stoke seem keen, but a deal looks very unlikely with top European clubs looking to sign him.(7)(18)Very unlikely? Try impossible! I didn't realise Stoke had 30m to spend on one player??Has Tony Pulis won the EuroMillions?He's injured and has been for a long timeHe is out until Feb 2013. Get Real. {Ed001's Note - more like April, or possibly for good, he doesn't even know if he will be able to play again as his latest injury was so severe.}Did villarreal get relegated ? Serious question {Ed001's Note - yes.}I know who the highly rated striker is as started the thread and it ISN'T Rossi. I did say we were looking at a Villarreal player and you've put 2 and 2 together and come up with the wrong conclusion. The Villarreal player is a midfielder.If it's de Guzman has has been rumoured he seems a high injury risk..The player from Villarreal is De Guzman. Can't see this happening though, unless Whelan or Whitehead leave. Kazim Richards would be nice to challenge on the right side.

Thats why ipswich sold him, if i were u i would tke 4mill bank it fast. Befote u c wot he is L1 player.thats just what i think

they would notyvHis game has progressed more every year since joining town Ipswich mistake to let him go ... Was he in the Scotland squad when he left Ipswich? No and by the way he's scored 2 goals tonight as the under 21s drew 2-2 with Bulgaria #heplayshescoresMr rhodes has his head screwed on thats for sure i cant see him leaving us this season whats the point if he left now and dose nothing in the prem he could soon end up been a bit part player for the rest of his football life im sure he will give it a go with huddersfield for a season and then look on from there. unless someone folks out 8 million for him and we all no he aint worth that but we can afford to keep him so why not put a silly price tag on him.Rhodes has scored his goals in the 1st Div. That makes him worth a punt for 2.5 mill at the mostJordan Rhodes plays internationally as well for Scotland- i reckon he will be in the reigon of 4 million

No thanks.No problem whatsoever with Austins attitude,model pro since he's been a claret,scoring plenty of goals in the championship and a baby on the way,if their was an attitude,it appears to have gone.....DazThere both shockingWot and Adam le fondre isn't ? Austin is better than all your strikers . Roberts has premiership experience that's it . Reading will go str8 back down m8If hes so bad then how come hes 4th top goal scorer in the championship more than any reading players?Straight back down? Don't let jealousy get the better of you. You wish you had a striker like Alf.We have better strikers than le fondre okAnd yep str8 back down so I'll c u on ere in 12 months time to tek the piss outa u lolLeave us alone briddcutt is never laeaving"There both shocking"
Oh dear. if you knew anything at all about football you would know that both are very good players. Austin scored a lot of goals in relatively few games and bridcutt was brighton's player of the season (and is very young).Well said m8^^ clearly some ppl don't have a fin clue about football!

norwich are willing to pay up to 3 million pound on robert snodgrass who is reportedly set to request a transfer.(19)(17)No chance!!Didnt I see the same rumour a day or two ago, but for 1.5m

Likely PorkiesYes chance if we want him we will have him thats the way it is premier leagueIm pretty sure snodgrass is going to wait and see what happens with the takeover bid first. looking forward to passing you on the way up next season norwich10 mill wouldnt get him, and he is about to sign contract now anyway MOTLeeds fans thinking their a bigger club than norwich. Let's take howson for example. You won't get promoted this season, you have the most disgusting manager football has seen, suits your club. Wait til we sign snodgrass and deliver the final blow to your club.Last I heard he was going to meet with the club to discuss they're plans for the future. "A year ago it was Howson, Johnson, _____, and I. I'm the only one left." doesn't sound like someone who is signing a new contract. Leeds are passing Norwich next season? reasonably sure they took your captain, and are trying for your second. you're a feeder club for Norwich and anyone can see that.Norwich, get your act in order. Lambert is leaving and Holt, Tierney & Johnson are returning to drama school after their shameful performances during the year. Tierney in particular is a disgrace.

Poyet to replace Rodgers at Swansea(23)(16)He Is not going anywhereNo chance. He has said he is staying at Brighton.He's good but no experience, rather Martinez again!Rodgers will not be Liverpool manager, simple as.Im a swans fan and brendan will go but for 6m only!Did Rodgers have much expierence then when he took over at Swansea...NO! Poyet plays same way and has many more contacts abroad. Can only be good for Swans. All aboard the GUS BUS!


30 May 2012 09:17:38
Wolves have had a bid rejected of 6million for Huddersfield striker Jordan Rhodes.(17)(41)Why would he even consider Wolves when Huddersfield are playing in the same league as them next season. He may as well stay put and develop there. If he leaves Huddersfield it will be to a premiership team not another championship club!I am a wolves fan really want him to join I also hold a hope that Jarvo and Fletch will stayWolves have to sell before buying.Also the new manager does not start until June 1st.So there way well be some out goings but no in comings as has been stated the the club.R u mad!!
rhodes, 4 million dream onTwo things 1 no they haven't and 2 if they were willing to pay 6mil on a player it'ld be Daim N'Doye from CopenhagenWe would sensibly expect that Stale and Moxey have discussed transfer targets and that Moxey will be on the case. We also know that we hear nothing until the deal is done.No way would they knock that back!We have to sell before we buy? where you get your info from if we want another striker we would sell players like vokes jonsson johnson milijas LG AG berra we dont need to sell but we wont hang on to fletch or jarvis so we bring a replacement in anyway id love BBS from lillestrom hes the next ibrohimovic (spelling) but then again who nos could get rhodes as well bigger club better club better ground better fansI'm an Ipsiwch fan, I'm telling you that this boy is just not ready to move. He's a big fish in a puddle at Huddersfield let him learn his trade there first. Guarnteed he wont get 20 goals this season, championship is so much harder than league1.


30 May 2012 09:15:47
With what looks like Brenden is on his way to liverpool, we better get someone pretty special to fill those boots!(16)(8)


30 May 2012 09:06:32
Just witnessed Ronnie Moore drive into Tranmere Rovers car park this morning, closely followed by Iain Hume and also Anthony Kay(9)(21)Alot of hume to tranmere rumours flying aboutAm a Tranmere fan and would love to see this happen, however arent both of these players under contract? I would also expect that both players would be beyond our means in regards wage.Hume with Canadian National team!!Ha ha fact one hume is away on international duty
fact two tranny cant afford hume as he as 2 yrs left on a contractYeh for a start hume is in canada, and secondly why would he go to tranmere? he's already committed his future to north end and will only leave for a club in a higher divisionI know humey always pops into Tranmere whenever he is passing.
Nothing new there!
As for kay, well I did see him in the petrol station in bebington about half 8 ish!Probably unlikely to happen, but as a life-long Rovers fan, I would be made up if it did! :-)They were playing at dodgems!Tranmere are set to sign mike grella, they are just waiting for preston to offer him a bigger contract at the last minute

Dani Pacheco will be anounced as a Norwich City player on Friday
As he completes his permanent transfer from Liverpool(25)(10)Rubbish, it depends upon who is the next Liverpool manager.

Titus Bramble will be sacked and probably jailed if found guilty of sexual assault or sold if he's found not guilty(19)(27)From my sources this is not far wrong but we wont go for Fletcher & Holt, one or the other, Yakubu is available for 1m and Johnson only available on loan with safc wanting city to pick up half his wage.Mackems - time you woke up to the fact that you will not get Fletcher for £7M - he cost Wolves £6.5M, and has scored well for 2 seasons in a struggling team - also, Wolves are in a strong financial position - £10M minimum.Diame went france 2 days ago u..that kind of kills ur rumour souce3 new strikers and adam johnson you're kidding yourself on here sonDiame hasn't gone to france bur nor will he go to Sunderland. He will end up in London or Malaga.

Reading Transfers News:
Yakubu - Blackburn - 1 million
Chris Gunter - Nottingham Forest - 2.5 million
Adrian Mariappa - Watford - 3 million
Matt Phillips - Blackpool - 2.5 million
Carlos Sanchez - Valenciennes - Free
Bjorn Berggman Sigurdarson - Somewhere in Denmark - 3.5 million
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield - 4 million
Jermaine Defoe - Spurs - 4.5 million
Joe Cole - Liverpool - SEASON LONG LOAN
Dame N'Doye - FC Copenhagen - 6 million
Emile Heskey - Aston Villa - Free
Sean Morrison - Huddersfield - 1 million
Michail Antonio - Sheffield Wednesday - 700k
Simon Church - Leicester - 1.5 million(11)(27)What sort of confidence would you have if you were an existing Reading player with this extensive list being banged around....they have a good team anyway, one or two players of quality but don't Dis the hardworking players and quality manager that you have. From a Southampton Fan and Season Ticket holder!Matt phippls dream onAnd Southampton are signing all of the above anyway....!Or a straight £1m if they won't take ChurchBjorn Berggman Sigurdarson - Somewhere in Denmark - 3.5 million?? He plays for LSK in Norway.The likely ins seem pretty accurate, but I doubt any of the possibles will happen though other than Rhodes.Why would Mariappa go for a team like Reading who will be straight back down when Newcastle United wanted him in January?Oh because Premiership outfit Reading couldnt possibly sign Matt Phillips from a championship side... Silly Blackpool fans.

On a less take the mick out of red faced blackpool fans note, Sean Morrison isn't going anywhere on a perm as McDermott believes he has the qualities to be a future first teamer in the Reading side so he will most likely go out on loan to Huddersfield. Antonio has also said that he doesnt want to leave Reading, if he goes anywhere it will also be on loan, most likely back to Sheffield Wednesday. Joe Cole will not be coming to Reading, he wants to right the wrongs of his Liverpool career. Sigurdarson will be coming to Reading due to Readings popularity out in that area of countries. Emile Heskey is not going to happen and neither is Dame N'Doye.

A loyal but realistic royal fan.West Ham have already bid 1.2 million for Yakubu which is likely to be accepted by BlackburnWhy would reading go straight back down they have the team, the money and the have been there before. Everyone should all just give Reading the respect they deserve.....No way pearson would pay 1.5 mil for church. Useless player, leicester will buy a bigger name striker with more goals in him.Sigurdarson plays for Lillestrom in NorwayRhodes will command more than £4million now they were promoted. Still in league 1 that sort of money would have been right.


30 May 2012 08:07:04
Very strong rumours around the midlands that Martinez is finally heading to Villa, who can guarantee him the level of control he wouldn't be getting at Liverpool.

Dave Whelan will replace Martinez with another up and coming young manager - Liverpudlian Karl Robinson of MK Dons is in the frame.(19)(12)Paul Robinson Has committed his future to the Dons so this will not happen.Robinson has confirmed he's going nowhere.Its Karl Robinson not PaulKarl Robinson is going no where. This is lies!


30 May 2012 08:04:29
Robert Green ready to advise west ham he will be leaving the club after 30 june .(20)(7)


30 May 2012 07:56:42
Reading are prepared to offer Watford 1.5 million + Simon church for Adrian mariappa(15)(14)I wouldn't be too disappointed with it but would maybe prefer the extra £2m than Church.Hope so simon church isnt the best .Considering that Church probably decreases the value of that 1.5m, i'd say that's a great dealEveryone mocks Church so bad, but at the end of the day the guy netted 7 goals last season, two against west ham and he is still only 23, he will be a good addition to most championship sides and is worth about 750,000-1mil. Wouldn't last a minute in the prem though haha.I wish those offering to drive Simon Church here, there and everywhere would just drive themselves there, and leave Simon and the real Reading fans in peace.We should send church out on loan to Watford and pay whatever for mariappa


30 May 2012 07:49:08
Plymouth to sign 6 players this week:
Lionel ainsworth
Lee sawyer
Alessayne n'diaye
Byron Anthony
Pablo mills
Frank nouble(8)(28)This is a joke, we (PAFC) can only possibly sign up to 3 more players, if that, following the signing of Paris Cowan-Hall yesterday, Our budget is severely limited.According to Brent and the BBC Fletch does have a competitve budget to get us out of League 2 next season, still though I can't see a single one of these players signing for us.Ainsworth, mills and nouble would be good signingThe compensation for paris cowan-hall was only 10,000 so we have quite a large budget left.We will get them ive seen them at argyle training ground a couple of hours ago and they all looked happy, even nouble who used to play for west ham.Nouble would be a good signing and so would sawyerYou saw them all training today? Can't say I believe an influx of players so quickly, players aren't even training at this stage of the year. {Ed003's Note - He/She never said seeing them training! }Just to clarify the 'note' added to my post it was a reply to the training claim made by someone 2 posts above mine :)


30 May 2012 07:43:53
Bothroyd could be on his way back to Cardiff as is looking on bringing in another 2 strikers and a winger. Will be much needed and wanted if he agrees a possible wage drop(14)(11)Horray, him and Gabbidon both gone, gr8 day, I'll drive him down if it speeds up the deal, banjo and cow's arse spring to mindSpot on. I think both are good Championship players, but thats it. Gabby seems injury prone and ol Jay has got get out the right side of the bed!


30 May 2012 07:38:40
Few names being thrown around as being linked to Brighton are:
Scott Loach, Robert Huth, Chris Morgan and Danny Swanson.(1)(26)Haha Robert Huth... Good one!Robert Hugh get realWhere are you throwing them? Neither Loach nor Huth will be available for absolute certain. Chris Morgan? A 34 year old who has already started to edge into coaching as the next stage in his career? Swanson? Gus said no a fortnight ago! Carry on................Robert Huth say no moreI think they meant Chris Morgan as the young Dagenham midfileder. Not the ex Forest Defender.Why not Robert Huth? You are saying get real because you 'think' because he used to play for Chelsea hes some ultimate world class player. Same with when Kezman was linked......and Vicente !Why not Huth? Well how about he is PL standard, wouldn't want to go to a second tier side, and would also cost at least £5 million? I think that much be a problem, yeah.The difference is Robert Huth is in his prime and playing every week for a Premier League side... Why would he drop down to a mid-table/potential play-off team?


30 May 2012 06:52:29
I've been hearing lots of rumours around the Tarn about transfers that Hilcroft are seriously looking at. Free transfers look like being our only option but if a couple of these come off we'll be looking well safe next year and not dependant on Pompey going into admin to keep us up:

Thom Eckersley - Young, big centre half just released by Bolton (85% done deal)

James Chambers - He is Donny scum as far as I'm concerned, but Hill thinks he's good enough to bring some stability to the left back role

Ricardo Gardner - If he can drop his wage demands, Hill could bring him in, though we'll face a lot of competition

Mike Pollitt - Some competition for Steele (or replacement if rumoured move elsewhere is true)

Tom Heaton - Former Cardiff keeper will only come in if Steele is sold on. Heaton is rumoured with a few clubs though so unless the deal is done quickly it wont happen. Won't happen when Steele is here as Heaton wants regular Championship football

Lloyd Sam - Can play both sides and Hill wants someone who can get crosses into the big man Craig Davies

Danny Shittu / Peter Ramage - Hill looking at both of thes and hoping to get at least one. Hill will ask the board for more funding next Friday to try and get people of these guys calibre in(10)(8)Ricardo Gardner has signed a one year extension deal with Bolton along with Kevin Davies.Bolton released him earlier this monthYes, Gardner has been released now.


30 May 2012 06:46:26

30 May 2012 06:26:55
Barnsley about to sign former reds player Rory fallon and are having talks with kevin philips agent as regards to a one year contract .Also lee williamson of sheff utd and his agent at oakwell yesterday.Teaser tyke.(7)(24)Who writes this bs. barnsley would not be intrested in fallon. we got shut of him because he could not hit a barn door when he was last here. so my question is what has changed? nothingRubbish and im a tarn franKevin phillips no chance we had to cut wages on many players so how would we afford phillips? {Ed003's Note - Phillips has just signed an extension for 12 months and his plan is to retire after that ends}If Fallon comes back to barnsley then thats me not attending oakwell for a few seasons, But this rumor is just a silly rumor, no truth in it


30 May 2012 06:13:18
heard adam johnson maybe heading to spurs with gareth bale leaving!(12)(28)


30 May 2012 03:21:45
Heard through friend that Brighton are looking at Watford's Scott Loach as a permanent first team keeper. Also heard Huddersfields Alex Smithies name being thrown around however that is unlikely after they had just gained promotion.(5)(10)Id rather smithiesMy friend im a huddersfield fan and smithies is hot stuff but he will never be in the prem he flaps at crosses make us real worried sometimes. but you will never see a better shot stopper than this guy


30 May 2012 02:39:08
Reading will show ambition by making a bid for Stoke's Robert Huth. The German is apparently wants a new challenge and he sees McDermott's outfit as a potential suitor. Other clubs keen on the ex-German international are Hoffenheim, Stuttgart and Russian team Zenit.(3)(27)Yes because he's gonna to go to a team just promotedJoining Reading certainly would be a challenge.Wouldn't want to see huth go but it would be better to sell him now and cash-in, rather than let him go for nothing next year. (unless a contract extension can be agreed)Huth would never leave stoke to you . more likely to join a top 6 team or move to germanyNot going to happenedReading fans going mad since you got promoted. Huth may well be leaving us for a bigger club like Spurs (hope he doesn't), or to go and play in Germany. But he will NOT be going to Reading.


30 May 2012 02:31:22
Dean Whitehead is close to agreeing a deal with Reading(11)(13)This is only a five year old rumourHope not forReadings sake hes not prem classPlease No!! Whitehead is awfulPast his best. Decent championship player but wouldn't get in our team if rumours about bridcutt and Sanchez are true
