any celtic rumours ed ? {Ed003's Note - You have been watching Matty Philips}(9)(10)


01 May 2012 23:15:34
Yeovil are looking to sign a permanent keeper for next season. Chris Weale and David James are on the top of the list.(14)(11)


01 May 2012 22:39:58
West Bromwich Albions attempt to sign Chris Hughton may be thwarted if Hughton gains promotion to the premier league with Birmingham. With Portsmouth having a "Hands Off" approach and Poyet stating he'll only leave Brighton for a big club, The Baggies will turn to Gary Megson to re-take the reigns. Solid Source(9)(30)Megson is terrible wba should go for
steve bruce or paulo di canio
paulo will be a top manager soon so will
neil lennon and chris powellMore chance of hell freezing over than Peace working with Megson again. Birmingham's financial position means they may lose Hughton whether they are promoted or not.Well West Brom are a big club in comparison to Brighton and it would be a step upSteve Big Bonze nooooooooooooo, noooooooooo,nooooooooooo"Solid Source"

So is faecal matter, which is what the above rumour is.This has to be a dingle fan with nothing to look forward to.

Out of favour Stoke midfielder Wilson Palacios is a summer target for Southampton(11)(28) 

Maybe but could do beter
saints should go for zaha and rodger
johnsonZaha is quality, but you'll face a lot of competition to get him (not that this means he wouldn't go to you, of course, just that he'd probably cost a fair bit). Don't see the attraction of Roger Johnson myself. He also seems to have a lot of baggage at the moment.Could do better :-) Yeah right

Palacios isn't out of favour just unfit. Pulis has said he will play a big part next season. Way out of Soton's reach and classDon't know why this is getting voted down so much - seems reasonable.

Player with prem experience currently not playing regularly at his club. And will be relatively cheap for a youngish, experienced midfielder.

I wish people would explain their doubts rather than just vote unbelivable all the time, shed some light to those who are less informed than them :S"Way out of Southamptons reach and class"

Granted we are no 'big fish' in this division but some people are deluded with immediately assuming we have no power in the transfer market. You go out of the prem for 7 years and when you come back with a stronger team, greater fan base, better management and more finances and you are deemed a tty carp little team with no power in the market. The day the transfer market gets dictated by teams like stoke will be the day hell freezes over. I appreciate we aren't going to sign massive names, but come back down to earth and recognise Saints will be a big force in the transfer market for middle table clubs. The ambition is to get to Europe eventually, and we are going to sign quality players and rival clubs like stoke in the transfer market. We're not coming up to be whipping boys and we have better finances, fan base and ambitions than many of the clubs in the prem.


01 May 2012 21:59:12
charlton are reportedly interested in marcus tudgay from notts forest(13)(13)Where is notts forest? never heard of themHes not out of contract its Nottingham forestWhere ever it is we dont want him


01 May 2012 21:21:43
Hi ed, haven't heard any West Ham rumours recently, any possible deals in the works at Upton Park? {Ed003's Note - I'd imagine we will get some when we know what division you will be in mate}(8)(5)Genuine post, no wind up. If West Ham fail to win promotion they are in huge trouble. Their wage bill is approx 38m and all Championship clubs can only have a max investment of 6m next season, 5m the season after, and then 3m.

Failure to bring your outgoings down will result in heavy fair play fines that are distributed to the other clubs in the league.

BBC ran a very good article on it. Have a Google.

It's up or bust for West Ham.Ravel morrison to saints :)In reply to "Genuine post" above, I've seen that too religated clubs have one year to comply. Clubs are trying to get around it with stadium sponsorship deals and the like. Most fans dont seem to have caught onto what it means yet.


01 May 2012 21:01:15
Any derby county fc rumours that are true(4)(3) 

You haven't been a big club for about 35 years.Assuming the above post is from a Leicester or a Forest fan, remind me the last time you were in the Premier League?This is not a rumour i belive you will be in shake up at the end of nx season. Ncfc mattRemind me who are currently the worst team ever in the premier league ?Derby?We only had 10 men.

Bitter, bitter, Leicester.Would be great if people stopped having a go at each other, we're all in the same boat! Remember this is a website for transfer rumours, not bitchingWorst team ever in the Prem? Without a doubt. But how many of those players are left? 0. Nothing at the club is left from that season, Derby will be in the mix for play offs this season, without a doubt.


01 May 2012 20:34:10
Any Reading FC Rumours Ed?(3)(8)Mariappa sounds likely. Very good source.

Whittingham also but only if Cardiff fluff the play-offs.

Butterfield on a free from Barnsley also sounds likely. Lots of talk about that one.They could sign shane long aswellOnly idiotic lies


01 May 2012 20:34:00
Sheffield united will make making a number of changes this season no matter what the outcome to the 2011/202 season is for example players such as; Lowton- Ipswich (£1.2 millions) Maguire- Southampton (£1 million) Quinn, Willaimson, Porter, Beattie and Taylor will all leave

Danny wilson will be able to use these fund to mkae sheffield united a team that is fighting for promotion no matter what league there in next season with summer signings such as nick powell, marc pugh and other young players that are all capable to proved and league one and higher(2)(22)Another Championship manager rumour?Wow, you're a reaLOL dreamer. Powell has been on Arsenal's radar all season, and you think little Sheff Utd can get him?



01 May 2012 20:31:05
Some interesting rumours

Hazard - Chelsea, man city, spurs
Ganso- spurs
Kagawa - Leicester
Hooper - villa
Vertonghen - arsenal
Neymar - Chelsea, Madrid, barca, Liverpool
El shaarawy - Leicester
Schmiecel - so'ton, man utd
Falcao - barca, Chelsea
Higuain - Chelsea
Ronaldo - Chelsea, man city
Hulk - Chelsea
Bale - barca
Modric - barca, man city, man utd(8)(62)El Shaarawy to Leicester?And Kawaga too? What are you on?The same kagawa who plays for german champions dortmund and is valued at about 20 mill. and el shaarawy from ac milan who is one of the most promising young players in europe? should be a good summer for Leicester.Stupid Leicester fansEl Sharaawy is going to be one of the worlds best. Kagawa is interesting Man United. Have a word with yourself mate..Kagawa to Leicester LOL!I think someone is a Leicester fanGary hooper will not be leaving the hoops for a small team or a small fee
sorry villaI think Villa (even though they've been terrible this season) are a LOT bigger than Celtic. I mean, when was the last time you sold a player to City? Or when did you last buy a player for 24Mil....'nuff said.Haha villa a small team are you havin a laugh you person celtic are in the worst league in the world if hooper wants to get better he,l join a prem team and villa wont go down.When was the last time villa went to barca and won the champions league then went on to man u and won the premiership and just cos you can spend 24 mill on a player dont make you a big club. fan base,history and how well known you are thats what makes you a big club.i am a city fan by the way .....'nuff said P.S shrewsbury must b a big team as well thenCeltic fan, Villa is a bigger team than Celtic even if they go down. Prem > Champ > SPL/League 1 > League 2. EeeeeeeediotLeicester fan by any chance?Villa are the 5th most successful team in English League history. They also FOUNDED the league. I'm pretty sure Villa is huge compared to Celtic. Celtic are just damn awful. All the SPL teams are. Everyone knows that...I mean every year its the same. Celtic or Rangers...Rangers won't even be there next season, so it'll make your little club even more lonely, without your pathetic sectarian 'derby'. By the way, I don't even support Villa, so I am completely neutral on this. It's pretty bloomin' obvious who the bigger team is.People need to get down to footy pitch and burn off some energy, stop trying to see who has the biggest balls over a football forum ffs.

Celtic are a big club, irrelevant that they play in a crap league. Villa are also a big club. Couldn't care less whose is biggest, they're both decent, stop arguing about menial rubbish, get out and do something.

From a Saints fan (medium sized club but loving it)Can't wait to see the saints play in the EPL again!!!!As much as I'd LOVE El Sharawry and Kagawa to come to Leicester - I can't really see players from the brightest young players from the potential Serie A champions and the already crowned Bunde Champions coming to a (currently) middle of the table championship side.

I can dream. But no.


01 May 2012 20:11:19
Reading and Leeds United have both made official bids for Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph.

Reading have long been admires of the young midfielder and manager Brian McDermott is said to have put the midfielder top of his summer wanted list.

Leeds manager Colin Warnock had Delph on loan, but Delph would prefer to remain in the Premier League and looks set for a move to the Royals this summer.(12)(24)Although it's not been in the media, the rumour of Delph to Reading has been going on since January and just won't go away. Would be a good signing.Get your facts right, it was Grayson that got Delph in and got to say that I wasn't that impressed. Hasn't done anything in the prem league and very injury prone. Should've stayed with Leeds like a few players that have jumped ship and got nowhere.Who's Colin WarnockEr Colin Warnock?? Can't even get the gaffers name right so not much truth in this oneYep this one keeps rearing its head.

Leeds haven't got to pennies to rub together, so they're out! Bates needs to go.'Colin' is his nickname. He has no interest in Delph, although I'd love to see him back. If he'd stuck with Leeds, he might have moved to an even better club than Villa, and for more money at that, even though I do think Leeds got a very good deal at the time.
wallyLOL at Leeds fans not knowing why he gets called Colin!Its neil not colin {Ed015's Note - Its an anagram}If you take the letter in 'Colin' out of .. {Ed003's Note - I think this has been exhausted now,thanks for the help though}Lmao who is colin warnock? ya muppet & there letting clayton go cuz hes looking 15k a week & leeds sold delph to villa for 6m so would expect him to be on more than 15k a week at them, so this looks like bs


01 May 2012 19:13:44
rumour as it Mick McMarthy is being talk to for job at
WBA in the hope flecther and jarvis will cross over(24)(20)WBA have not made contact with McCarthy.

Hughton is their favoured replacement. I have also heard that Gus Poyet is also on the considered list.It's just a dingle trying to deflect attention away from the fact they're the worst team in premiership. Enjoy this championship dinglesWba need hughton or di canio but not gus
not ready to leave brighton


01 May 2012 19:09:39
Don,t think Adam Pearson invests in clubs himself but
he may be able to find investors for Barnsley fc like
he did at Hull(14)(7)Told U this end of Feb? & all responses load of abuse


01 May 2012 18:54:45
Saints WILL buy Demba Ba, Alex Song, Victor Moses and Andy Carroll, then finish top 6 in the league were we belong... Teams to be relegated are Wigan, West Brom and Reading as they dont belong with the likes of Saints, United and Liverpool in the Premier League. {Ed015's Note - Oh dear}.(10)(87)I want some of what he's on!OMG ive heard it all now lolWhat world are you in? Dream on, you deserve to be bk in league 1, how are you a top 6 team? Explain please. . .What a little Richard!
Either they have let the inmates out of the looney bin early or more than likely, this is a Pompey supporter with nothing better to do than try and make Saints look stupid.
Get a life and try and realise Saints will continue to add players they can mix into the current squad and develope the style of play along the lines it has been moving for the last couple of years.
With the possible exception of Hooper, I would anticipate any other signings will be real surprises to the true fans, but well researched and good value for money-which I could not see in any of the rubbish posted above.Wow that was a personal favourite i must admitDont know if i should take this as a joke or not if your being serious im a bit worried for yer lolOh dear indeed. As a saints fan I just want to say please ignore this drivel. Was clearly not written by a saints fan. We may be optimistic but we're not deluded.Earth calling saints fan come in saints fan your tablets are ready.We dont belong with saints, remind me who finished above Southampton in the league?You know it is a joke when he puts Andy Carroll and wanting top 6. Southamton had a long stint in the premier league/division 1 but did not really challenge anything, just a middle table team. I think you need to get off what ever you on and get in the real world. By the way the teams that are there deserve to be there.HAHA what would everyone do if all this happened lolNo-one wants to play where the manager thinks he is better than he actually is..1 You'll be back in the championship this time next year..!Please don't let this kind of thing go up ed, not all saints fans are like this as this probably isn't even a saints fan. If he is then he probably hasn't been for more than a season, most of us have been through all the troubles and are just happy we are back in the prem and would be ecstatic to stay up. Don't let trolls wreck the name of my club please!THIS IS CLEARLY NOT A SAINTS FAN
Please don't judge us all from this tools comentsMy god if anyone actually believes this is a saints fan and not someone taking the mick then they are as dumb as! Cant believe you all fell for it."THIS IS CLEARLY NOT A SAINTS FAN" I'd agree, funny though!Excellent rumour. I had a mouthful of coffee, you scoundrel.
wallySo you think southhampton are a club that belongs in the top flight, how long is it since you have seen the doctor ?You must be crazy to think you will get some of these players to join a team that will struggle. Maybe Demba Ba but that's about it. As for a top 6 finish.....not a hope, either revise your expectations or you will receive a bit of a shock!You're an embarrassment to saints fc. That's if you actually are saints supporter and not a Pompey fan looking to get adverse reaction.This bloke is clearly a sample. But so is the reading fan. You boys crept through the back door but the premiership will hold no mercy and you'll be dumped in your backsides.
Also Adkins is not better than he thinks. He's done a superb job. Know anyone else who has 4 promotions in their first 6 years of management? Get your facts right you tool.Make saints look stupid? Saints fans have done a great job at that themselves all season long, why should now be any different?How have Saints fans made themselves look stupid this season?! Have a feeling I know what team you supportReading will stay up, they have lots more money because of the russian owner whos name i cant say, if anything were more likely to finish in the top 6 than saints :0I'm a Saints fan. This is just silly - definitely not posted by a Saints fan (or at least a sane Saints fan). The ambitious and deluded in me says top half finish if we are lucky. Realistically I just want to get by next season unscathed and make a few tactile signings.

Also just to correct a couple of posts..

"Adkins...4 promotions in their first 6 years of management? Get your facts right you tool."

If you are going to tell someone to get their facts right, I'd advise getting yours right. Adkins has managed for just shy of 10 years, not 6.

"Reading will stay up, they have lots more money because of the russian owner whos name i cant say, if anything were more likely to finish in the top 6 than saints"

If you are basing survival and success in the prem solely on wealth of owner... I hate to break it to you but we are significantly wealthier than you in that department!Reading will not finish in the top 6! Trust me. Saints have alot of money too, they are the 5th richest club in the country. I dont think either club will be doing a Man City spending wiseIf I remember right this time last year every one said we will struggle in the championship we didn't and apart from the top six I see nothing to scare us so! ok, maybe you have enough to afford some of those players but its not saying they would actually want to join you!

wigan have been in the prem for a few years now, and have been doing well lately, they battle and have earned the right to be in the premier league. West Brom have held their own this year and will find the right replacement for Roy, both those teams are ESTABLISHED premier league clubs....something you havent been for a number of years! and even then you were a mediocre one at that....keep dreaming and enjoy your relegation battle next season

01 May 2012 18:08:12
David James hass been released by Bristol City along with Jemal Cambell-Ryce. Yeovil could be a possible destination as it will mean that the players don't need to move far and Cambell-Ryce played under Glovers boss Johnson at City when he was in charge.(12)(3)DJ going to SwindonHe bleedin aint.....believe me, he's not!!


01 May 2012 18:06:46
West Brom board have no desire to
chose managers like Megson, Bruce,
McCleish, Strachan etc. to replace
Hodgson. Following the styles of the
previous managers that have been given
the position the board would like to
approach and select from the following:
Hughton, Martinez, Poyet, Powell etc.
All these posts stating Megson are from
bitter Wulfies.(12)(10)Martinez wont leave Wigan for West Brom. End of.So basically they only want good managers. fair enoughHughtonLOL, Powell has only been in the job a year! FFS will someone please give Alan Curbishley a job, he is a talented manager who will grow the club he works for. He's never been sacked, does tat not say it all!As a Wolves fan I hope you do not get Megson , he is poison.Curbs would be a good contender.You are a two bit club as your new manager will find out just wait and see time will tell


01 May 2012 18:03:00
Crystal Palace rumours-

Tshabalala- Free transfer- Had a trial at Crystal Palace in January and is said to have agreed already that he is to join in the summer when his contract at Kaiser Chiefs expires.

David Norris- Dougie Freedman is said to be a fan of Norris. Tried to sign him when his contract expired at Ipswich last summer, now Portsmouth are relegated he is said to be trying to get him in the latest Pompey clearout.

Henri Lansbury- Loan- Freedman's looking at his midfield as a real area to improve due to lack of creativity and ability to carve out chances. Impressed with Lansbury's appearances in a West Ham shirt despite the few he actually had Freedman is said to be trying to sign him in the summer for the season though faces competition.

Lucas Piazon- Loan- With Palace's on-going trouble's infront of goal continuing Freedman is set to turn to hot-prospect Lucas Piazon in order to attempt to solve the on-going crisis. With Piazon still long from getting his Chelsea debut, Freedman is hoping he will be able to take Piazon in order to help him grow as a player and aid in the next campaign.

Jeffrey Bruma- Loan- Despite Freedman's reluctency to sign players on loan he is interested in making the defence more compact and aims to bring Bruma in following several previous loans to help sure up the defence and act as cover for Gardner and Mc Carthy.


Nathaniel Clyne- Contract expires in the summer, Clyne has said he won't be signing a new contract and is looking for a possible route to the Premier League. Many teams having expressed interest.

Sean Scannell- Underperformed this season, not clear if he will be sold or loaned out.

Kagisho Dikgacoi- Lost his place in the first team and has since become out of favour. Looking to sell.

Antonio Pedroza- Loan- Hasn't been a huge hit in the Crystal Palace side, Freedman is said to be looking at League One clubs to potentially loan Pedroza to.

David Wright- Taking up his coaching badges at the moment, could be retiring from the game to continue as a coach.

Jermaine Easter- Freedman's first signing as Palace boss has underperformed since arriving at Palace. Freedman is said to be looking at improving the squad starting from the front. Continued spectulation surrounds Wilfried Zaha though Freedman has expressed his desire to keep his young prospects and with Zaha in no rush to leave, having signed a 5 and a half year contract in January he looks set to stay unless a significant transfer fee comes in.

Palace turned down 7 million from Bolton in January so it looks like a significant sum will be needed if Palace's hold on Zaha is to loosen.(11)(12)Tshabalala to nottingham forest .. not palaceJeffrey Bruma - Is on a 2 Year Loan to a German team since the start of the last season so that rumour is not trueJeffrey Bruma signed a one year loan with an option of a further one year at the start of last season, he's due back at Chelsea come the end of the season. So yes, it is true.

As for Tshabalala we'll just have to wait and see then.


01 May 2012 17:57:20
Southampton are wanting to sign Matt Mills from Leicester and believe they will be able to sanp him up for a fee of £2m(13)(22)Will be allowed to go for 3-3.5m. West Ham is the likely destination.Hav him for freeHow can West Ham be a likely destination when they dont even know what league they are in next year?We'll be very lucky to get 3mil for him.I'd take 1.50 and a freddo! if we got 2 / 3 million for him i will drive him up there to his destination myself! {Ed003's Note - Chocolate or caramel ?? }As a reading fan I have to say I'm loving the Leicester fans hatred of mills and I'm so glad his career has fallen apart 5m we were laughing all the way 'chin up mills'I am a Wolves fans and as you all know who read on this site the fans are Angry at Jez Moxey.I am more than happy he had the sense not to shell out 5 million pounds for Mills.Well done Reading on cashing in on him.Sounds about right but barely up to Premiership standard.Leicester didn't pay 5m for him upfront, a large portion of it was clauses on promotion and appearances.

if he plays one more game for them, leicester will have to pay another million.


01 May 2012 17:56:41
Tottenham very close to getting Ganso.

Southampton will offer £6million to Wolves for winger Matt Jarvis.(29)(21)Jarvis will go to a bigger side than saintsNorwich inquired and were told eight million.You have no idea what Saints would offer for a player, and even when a deal goes through that would probably still be the case.It's possible that they've made a monetary enquiry though.

Marko Marin is the first of around 5
transfer deals Abramovich hopes to
conclude in an attempt to revamp
the Chelsea squad.

If Chelsea are not in the Champions
League then targets such as Higuain,
Lavezzi, Cavani, Gaitan and Hazard
will not even be considered.

And its more likely Chelsea will bid for
Hulk from Porto, Ilicic from Palermo
and Van de Wiel from Ajax(5)(10)

on sales of:
varney,pearce,halford,henderson,lawrence,huseklepp,benjani, the portsmouth expects to hire three or four players who will be:
nathan ellington - derby county - free
liam o'brien - barnet - free
nuez - leeds - exchange with jason pearce(5)(10)You have to be joking!

Your manager indicates all of the current squad will go (or very near). He is likely to be on his way back to WBA. The administrator and the Football League say that there is every chance you will be liquidated. Many of the clubs backroom staff are being made redundant and there is no indication as where any funding will come from after this month.
Who in their right mind would join such a sinking ship?Nunez is a quality player if you use him as a focal point of the team. Would be a good deal for both Leeds and Pearce, although i think Leeds should be due 100K or so extraDerby are going to sell you a player that belongs to Ipswich? Sort of destroys your credibility somewhat. LOL Play Up or should that read Pay Up Pompey!Wont happen, all players will be leaving and the club will be liquidatedNathan ellington to Derby..that's a laugh.. we got rid of him he was carp when we had him on loanNo chance Pompey will be liquidated. You only need to understand the money that would be lost if that happened (Prem parachute money would stop and all players released on 'frees') to understand why, as a backstop a leading creditor ( Balram Chanrai) will buy.Ellington is at Ipswich and has another year left on his contract, he's not featured at all this season, could do a job for pompy in league 1, others released Lee Bowyer, Abrahim Sonko, Richard Wright, hey you could take them all and how about us chucking in a certain P Jewell !

Watford team next season:

Thomasz Kuszczak

Doyley, Taylor, Nosworthy, Dickingson

Hogg, Eastace

Murray, McGinn, Tommy Smith

Sam Baldock

Sell Deeny, Marriapa and Yeats

Buy Tommy Smith & Thomsz Kuszczak

Get Sam Baldock on a season long loan(2)(19)It would make the rumour more believable if you could spell the players names!!Get His Name Right...Its Not Tamas or Thomasz is TOMASZ.....Come On You OrnesSpurs, QPR, Fulham, Werder Bremen and even Bayern Munich all reported to also be showing interest in the out-of-contract Manchester United keeper and your going to buy him????We don't need to buy him, he's free. Ultimately he wants first team football, decent wages and would rather stay in the UK. We can offer him two of those things, I doubt many bigger teams than us could offer all three. So it's up to Kuszczak to decide what he wants most.Also Deeney will not leave. No Premier League team will buy him so we will keep hold of him. I doubt any Championship team would pay the price that we know he's worth.

Kasper Schmeichel has rejected rumours of him moving away from the King Power stadium and has said he will stay and help with promotion next year.

Both West ham and Leeds are both considering making an other for Leicester Defender Matt Mills but the cost may be holding them back as Leicester wouldnt want to make a huge loss.

West ham are also considering making a move for Jermaine Beckford.

Leicester considering making an offer for Derby County striker Theo Robinson.

John Pantsil and Steve Howard have both left the club.

Nigel Pearson will 100% be the manager in the home dugout of the King Power stadium next season. With Vichai 'tops' Raksriaksorn still confident they made the correct decision to bring back Pearson after the sacking of Sven Goran Erikson.(17)(9)Norwich may be interested in schmeichel

portsmouth squad first team 2012/13:




---------11-ellington----9-futacs(2)(19)Ashdown is out of contract and Ward is leaving. Norris and Rocha likely leaving due to big contractsJoel Ward is on his way to Ipswich, Kelvin Etutu will take his place, free agent Ibrahima Sonko will take Magri's place, George Thorne (loan) will take Wheelers place, Free agent David Cotterill will take Colsons place. Then that would be a decent squadPretty accurate apart from those number 1 - 11. Havant & Waterlooville will soon be the biggest team around Portsmouth.Ward will be gone, other players mentioned, with exception of Ellington, are expected to remain. Requests to loan Thorne from WBA will be made and are expected to be successful. Appleton then wants up to 10 further additions, almost all loans or 'frees' so as to cover the additional games involved in div 1.

You're having a laugh mate.As a saints fan, I am begging you to stop fueling the backlash by putting up such stupid posts. most of them are carp players anyway.Ebanks Blake free? He's in contract. You toally undermine you post by coming up with such factually incorrect drivelShay given? are you sure pal? i know this is a rumour site but c'mon!! one year into a 5 year contract, you realy think he would go to a) saints B) for a free? i think notAbsolute rubbish! If you have no clue yourself take a look at Nigel Adkins post on the Saints website today.
I can only see perhaps 4 players coming in and they will be of a quality better than already at the club. I expect at least the same number to go.
The club knows who they want and I strongly suspect no-one outside of the club will get to know who they are until the deals are done so these "rumours" are total guesswork and make the club look stupid.George Boyd is under contract for another year too -_-Gary hooper is well better than kyle laffertyLoad of bcks all of these players are committed to their current clubs and all have 3 years plus on contracts so very uynlikely mr drunk on promotion saints fan. ull be back playing leicester and barnsley this time next year.You must be a pompey fanSaints fan here, please everybody ignore people like this!

Saints fans do not believe this at all, posts like these are being put up by non Saints fans to make us look bad...i.e pompey fans.No one knows who has posted this tripe but obviously it's someone either wanting a response or a complete idiot, whether they're a Saints fan or not we'll never know but to confirm again what a load of tripe!

This one has been done to death before.I'm getting fed up with people saying he's a free agent, he has another year, didn't sign a new contract and has therefore been transfer listed. Sort it out ffs.For free

Firstly I will say I am neither a Man City
or Utd fan. I was pleased to see that
Fergie got his come uppance last night.
The times he has intimidated officials
and got away with it, but he got a taste
of his own medicine last night. City
were by far the better team and
deserved to win. The only blot was the
yellow card for Kompany v. Rooney
who knew by staying down the ref
would act as he did, again, another
Fergie trick! The blue half are now in the ascendency so let us hope old red nose
knows his place.(23)(10)Didn't say you wasn't a Liverpool fan though!!TBH this statement was a load of S!T , united are missing fletcher anderson and dont forget Vidic argubly best CB in the world. United will be back next season watch!

Club looking to clear out rather than bring in at the minute. Chanrai will only take club on if its absolutely last restort, but its only to save it from liquidation not to actually continue to properly run it. Rumour Ive heard is liquidation still likely.If CHANRAI what,s he waiting for? nobody want,s it no assets/ too many debts ? NOT GOING TO HAPPEN SORRYI hope pompy do survive because they are a club with too much historyEvery club has history!

Some silky moves but generally he's not up to Premier League football.Callum McManaman has already openly said he wanted to return to Blackpool if it was possible next season.Im a Wigan fan and I hope Callum stays with us but Blackpool are a great team, I respect them and there fans and I hope they win the play offs.

I wouldn't blame Callum if he wanted to go to Blackpool on loan again as he did well there with a great manager in Ollie and Nouha is doing just as well but I cant see him going back as I think Blackpool will come back up.

Good luck in the play offs and hope to see you in the Prem next season.

Watford team next season:




Tommy Smith


Don't expect a lot of signings!(12)(1)So What you're actually saying is that Watford are going to sell Adrian Marriappa and Buy Tommy Smith!!I could have said that yes but that's a bit it boring! Watford will be signing other players and letting others go obviously but that's what the line up could look like next season. Those coming in are development players after Dyche stocked up on experience last summer. Definitely coming in is a young winger. Worrall from Bury or Carayol from B. Rovers are the two targets. There will be movement in the striker department as well but the likes of Massey and Assombalonga will get pre-season to impress in the hope that they can have the same impact as Sordell last season. If not then expect loans for them and a Prem striker on loan as it sounds like we'll be keeping Iwelumo, Garner and Deeney.

You clearly know nothing.Oh dear maybe we should see if we can stay in the championship if thats trueYeah....everyone knows Southampton are signing 34 new players, 17 loan players, 12 youth players and.....Emile Heskey!!. Sir Alex ferguson said Southampton are a bigger club than Utd, City & Liverpool all put together.Haha sounds like a bitter Pompey fan!Ha HA we ARE premierleague who cares what other supporters say they just want what we have everything coyrdsWhy do we keep getting linked with so many Wolves players? I actually do not understand this at all.Thats twice in two days that big things have had their arses whooped. fergie by refs and saints by decent playersHaha what rubbish.
Saints never discuss anything related to transfers until its confirmed. so theirs no chance a bitter fan like yourself would know anything about Saints dealings..As annoying as it is now as a Wolves fan now you've been promoted you'll be linked with all the decent players from the relegated clubs, as Wolves are the only team definitely down that is why you are being linked with our players, but how anyone knows that you've contacted them and they've turned you down is rubbish, for a start there are 2 prem games left so Wolves wouldn't have give permission to speak yet, it's probably just stupid Pompey fans jealous.

Former Genk player Janssen on Swansea City: "A great club"

Ajax midfielder Theo Janssen does not know how long he will play for the Amsterdam club. The thirty-year midfielder has a contract until mid 2013, with an option for another season. A foreign adventure he also does not matter.

"I do not know if I'll stay. It is impossible to predict. I personally have no control," said the Arnhem at De Gelderlander. The midfield for next season is already quite busy including Vurnon Anita, Siem de Jong, Christian Eriksen and purchase Lasse Schne.
He would like to work in England, at a club like Swansea City. "A football team that plays in my heart. A nice club. I am open to a beautiful foreign club," said Janssen, who in the season(9)(0)

MILLWALL'S chances of bagging Nottingham Forest centre-back Joel Lynch look slim because he has been offered a contract by boss Steve Cotterill.

The Lions made an approach for the 24-year-old last summer but were told he was not available.

The centre-back's contract runs out this summer, but he is one of only two players to be offered new deals - the other is former Bromley winger Gareth McCleary.

The Eastbourne-born former Brighton trainee, who can also play at left-back, has played 38 times for the Reds this season, mostly in his preferred position of centre-back, scoring twice.

The 24-year-old product of Brighton's youth academy joined Forest from the Seagulls in 2009 for a fee of £200,000 after a successful loan spell.

Forest's finances are in turmoil after they were left owing £75m to club chairman Nigel Doughty, who quit last October - then died suddenly in February. He had made plans to invest a further £23m in the coming two years. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------(5)(3)If this bid is true then I would not rule it out on the basis of being offered a contract at Forest. Millwall are progressing and will therefore be attractive to players, I'm a Charlton fan and even I can see that. No disrespect to Forest but, they are still in a state of flux, new owners usually bring new management etc etc.Lynch himself put on his twitter that hes going nowhere and its all paper hype check it yourself - "JJL33"

Any new West Bromwich manager will be encouraged to sign Kevin Doyle from Wolves when Shane Long rejoins Reading. From inside the Hawthorns(3)(13)And all this will happen with no manager ..and no players will be allowed to leave untill a new manager is in place and hes assessed all players at the club which wont be untill pre season now since all players will be at the euro or on holiday so thats not happening is it ..kills ur lie straight awayWhat a load of rubbish. shane long like most prem rejects will drop to championship club and remain there for career. just like reading after next season


01 May 2012 10:29:12
Reading are interested in signing Shane Long back from West Bromwich Albion. Long will leave if a good manager isn't taken on at the baggies.(8)(14)Shane long as stated he wouldnt ever go bk to readingStfu! Shane long LOVES Reading, he goes to games and all sorts. He and manager Brian McDermott are very close. He would definitely go back given the opportunityWas at the stadium on sunday, he was in with the away fans at derby tooThe guy who said "he would'nt ever go bk" clearly does not know Shane. He has been to Reading many times this season which include being there on sunday to see us lift the trophy. I can't see it happen myself but if the price is right, it is possible. Long is a Royal!They might as well have him back its not like theyve got a few decent strikersShane long is a perfect fit for the royals - his pace will work amazingly well around jason roberts - has royal blood too!!

Charlie Austin is on the move,possibly Southampton.
Have also heard Bourmouth but cannot see him dropping divisions.Besides he had problems in the South West,hence rapid move from Swindon Town(1)(18)Austin is going nowhere, he is Burnleys main striker next year with Rodriguez looking like he will leave. Stop speaking trollopPeople like you are a joke, why come onto this site and make up pointless rumours. Yes saints could be a likely target, but there are better options out there for the cost it would take to buy him and bournemouth lol get real

Simon cox wants move,would prefer to go back to Reading or Swindon Town.
However appears not much interest in him.So another season as ub and playing reserve football.Seems a shame.(2)(13)This is the same reading mug who posted the other 2 rubbish lies about shane long lol keep smoking the wacky backy dudeThink he's already in talks with Ipswich TownCant see him dropping to L1 but Swindon fans love Simon Cox and would welcome him back but it will never happen whilst we are in L1. No player at his age will drop from the premier league to L1.

So why would we sell a player for less, to direct competition, and when he is our first choice LB? Idiotic rumour.Dont be daftGod I hope so. Whata liability. He nearly cost us promotion and certainly the Championship.Are you mad! Fox was one of our best players last season! you obviously don't understand football 18 assists from left back only bettered in England by Van Persie and Aguero? he is quality! wont go anywhere for under 4M !

Kenny Daglish wants a 3rd striker for next season to compete or play with Carroll and Suarez. Daglish is currently tracking Oliver Giroud,Gary Hooper and Dutch strikers Luuk de Jong and Ricky van Wolfswinkel. IMO Luuk De Jong and Gary Hooper are the most likely. One of these 4 forwards will be at Anfield next year.(3)(17)Hooper has been down for talks yesterday according to friend who works at anfieldProbably best off getting a 2nd striker in first isn't he?Stevenage have a good striker they can have for 40m and he'll get more goals than Carol.


01 May 2012 02:47:25
Barnsley are looking to sign wycombe striker Stuart Beavon and Doncasters James O'Connor. Keith Hill will also be on the look out for a winger come striker after Kallum Higginbotham has had his Hudderfield Town career resurrected. Don't be sup prised to see the reds make a dash for Sheffield Wednesday striker Chris O'Grady although this move would be unlikely. Other signings would come from the loan market or trials as the clubs budget is not as generous as previous years.(9)(8)


01 May 2012 09:21:34
This isn’t a we are GOING TO sign post, but in my opinion who I think would be potential realistic targets for Saints to look at for next season. Players with Premiership experience/potential.

I think we need to sign at least 7 players to make sure of a good season next year. A Goalkeeper, full back, centre half, 2 Central Midfielders, winger and a striker.

Relegated Teams

Michael Kightly - Wolves
Steven Fletcher – Wolves
Matt Jarvis – Wolves
Roger Johnson – Wolves (only signed with Dann)
Scott Dann – Blackburn (same as above, formed a good partnership at Birmingham)
Hoilett – Blackburn

Championship players if current teams aren’t promoted
James Tomkins – West Ham
Matt Phillips – Blackpool
Peter Whittingham – Cardiff
Nathaniel Clyne - Crystal Palace (if not brought by one of the big boys, would benefit from minutes ala Moses at Wigan)
Jay Rodriguez – Burnley

Personally I don’t think we will more than one of theses however like I said this is the types of players I believe we should be looking at. I also think that we will sign some gems from the likes of the French/Italian leagues like Newcastle have done who’s wages aren’t through the roof like most of the above would likely to be. This seems to be the Saints way under Cortese to keep our transfers under wraps and surprise everyone. We also don’t seem to be a club who take loan players from the top clubs.
Although our owners have money and some of our fans seem to think that we will/can sign anyone I can’t see us doing what QPR have done and buying big name/wage players.

Whatever does happen this Season has been amazing and am looking forward to seeing the Saints back where they belong and on MOTD every week.(15)(15)Lets see where you "belong" at the end of next season.Get a grip no player would commit to a team that will come straight back down ..and the saints will be competing with every other bottom half established prem club for players that happens every year in the pecking order i have the saints bottom of the prem list in clubs player would want to signe for..they will be fighting for the scaps other clubs leave behindWolves are a club with no debt so therefore it has been decided at boardroom level to try and keep the squad together. Any new manager will have to sell to raise funds. The chances of us selling 4 players to 1 club is less than remote. We have put 12 million on fletchers head so would probably want 25 million for that lot!To say saints will be fighting for scraps or finish bottom is a joke. Southampton are far stronger than Swansea, Norwich, Reading, QPR, Bolton, Stoke, Wigan, West Brom and others. You clearly know nothing about our structure, ambitions, squad or how we play. With our current squad we'd stay up. With solid additions that we will certainly get, Saints will very comfortably be mid table and keep building toward European football. Southampton FC has it all, the best academy and youth development in the country, decent stadium with big support base home and away, billionaire owners with huge ambitions, a very shrewd chairman and an excellent young manager. We wont do a Man City, but you can bet we'll be in the Premier league for many years to come.

I think the list above is very good and the comment is probably on the button. But you forgot Chris Burke (Brum) and Matt Taylor (WHU).

Inflated figures for relegated players are delusional. Players need to get shifted because of wage structure and their will to play Premier League football. The player is only worth what someone will pay. Jarvis and Hoilett will command a hefty sum, but others will go for nothing exceptional.Roger Johnson?
Your welcome to himSeems like a couple of bitter Pompey fans on here!Matt Taylor, ex pompey no thanks.Why dont you just change your name to wolves , as you seem to want to sign everything wolves.


01 May 2012 09:01:05
I hope its not the truth but apparently Gary Megson will be offered the job. Were never going to get anywhere with him in charge(13)(3)Oh yes you are......relegatedGinger mourinhoWhat job ? with who ?As a wolves fan it would finally put a smile back on my face.Megson working with jeremy peace ? more chance of the dingles getting back to the prem within 5 years..more chance of knittin fog !

Russell Slade has an extensive target listt already and has targeted David Connoly,Jordan S Spence,Tony Craig,Andy Williams and Brian Woodhall from Dagenham.

Jay Simpson of Hull is also on the wish if he canstif he can get a settlement on his contract.(5)(2)

Been told the lads need to sell before the club can buy, current wage bill is to high. Ellis Short wants cut backs. Wants at least 8 Senior players to leave. Including McCartney, Angeleri, Riveros, Elmohamady and others.
No players will come to the club until these players have gone.
Ellis Short wants more players from the Acadedy to be used.
Wants the furture team to be build around Jack Colback. Who is the furture of the club and next club captain.(5)(1)This won't sit to well with MON I imagine, looks like a re-run of the Villa sagaMon will have money to spend whether he shifts that lot out or notComplete rubbish. There will be a clear out of dead wood without doubt. But this will not determine MON transfer budget. Oneil has already said hes discussed his ideas for what he wants for the club with short and that short agrees with him. That coupled with how impressed short is with oneils performance since he arrived ive no doubt sunderland will have a healthy transfer fund available this summer

Watford have agreed a fee of 4m for Peter Wittingham. Also want to get Ian Harte on a free from Reading and Sam Baldock on loan from West Ham. They are also said to be interested in Paul Taylor and Anton Ferdinand!(1)(31)Watford haven't got 4m for anyone.

Harte has been offered a new contract at Reading, and Reading have agreed a deal for Whittingham dependant on Cardiff fluffing the play-offs again.As a Watford fan, this makes me embarrassed.DeludedHave watford even got 500,000? If Whittingham is going any where it is to a prem club. Harte is staying. Also why would any of those players go to WATFORD! (Reading fan)Loooool this has made me laugh ...cant see any players from league 1 even wanting to join watford such a small club...! and what money do you have ??^ Tell that to players like Danny Graham and Deeney....not to mention Premier League/SPL players who have joined us in recent times.

Comes from a reliable source(11)(26)Chris Hughton will be the next WBA managerGutted Woy is getting the England job as a Wolves fan as I wanted Houghton to be our next manager.No way will Mowbray be back at the hawthorns , he was crap in the premier league with the baggies.

saints could make a triple sweep at wolves to sign o hara hammil and jarvis for 16.5 mfor all 3(18)(41)I like saints but no way can they afford money like thatCourse they can afford it...they are loaded and have just had a large fund from promotion...i would bite there hand off for 16.5 m for all them 3...11 million for Jarvo, 3 million for O'Hara and 2.5 million for hammillCant see hammill joining Saints was on loan there did not do particularly well. Jarvis could be a target though not sure bout Ohara coz of his Pompey connectionsYou don't get the Sky money until the end of next season!

Of course you wont spend like that. You're in for a real shock if you think otherwise.Sounds like far too much for players we probably arent interested inPretty sure bigger teams are interested in Jarvis and O'hara such as Everton, Stoke, QPR, Fulham ect so stop dreaming...We had money before the sky money! So for a start that wont affect our spending. If we wanted to spend big we would, but I dont think thats the way the club wants to do things.

Nick Barmby sacked for unknown reasons by Hull City owners...officially 'suspended' but definitely sacked. Head of football operations and another local hero Adam Pearson has also walked leaving the whole club in a shambles. Rumours are the Allam family want to slash costs selling key players in the process so expect the vultures (or Leicester as they are otherwise known) to swoop for Chester, Fryatt, Stewart, Rosenior.(24)(6)Hull city or leicester city-no brainerand ho you can keep fryattThere is nothing on the Hull website about this, where did you get your info ?Why would Leicester buy back Matty Fryatt when the sold him as not good enough in the first place?

BobbybuffonYou forgot hobbs, we want them all and they will want to leave the sinking shipI didnt necessarily mean them all going to Leicester, but as it happens you can Koren and Corry Evans to the list. As to sources, inside the club and close to Nick Barmby...he is gone not just suspended.

Newcastle 12/13

Ashley Williams-Swansea
Alex Song-Arsenal
Ben Arfa
Afellay- Barcelona (Loan)(7)(58)Why would song go to spewcastle for? arsenal are miles better than them, I think this deluded geordie has forgot that half newcastles team will be soldIf Tiote is worth 30m+ according to yourselfs (Newcastle fans) So going by that, I would value Song at 45m+ he is by far the best defensive midfielder in the league. 14 assists & 2 goals this season, will probably end up being more. Just another Geordie in dream land.

By the way I don't actually value Song at 45m, more like 25m. All though if Tiote is worth 30m I have no idea why anyone would disagree with me.Football is all about opinions and I think both Tiote and Song are quality players but can't for the life of me figure out why Song an Arsenal regular would leave London for Newcastle.

BobbybuffonAshley Williams from Swansea you won't spend 10,000,000 it would take to buy him your a selling club not a buying club BA will be gone along with your keeper. Mike Ashley needs the cash flow.

I assume Butterfield is going to Liverpool then as Dalglish is the only manager in the english leagues willing to pay that much over the odds for players!

BobbybuffonButterfields contract runs out at the end of june so why would newcastle pay 2 million? they can sign him on a free and go to tribunal where barnsley wont get close to 1 million. and 250k for brian stock, im sure donny rovers will rip there hands off for that amountWheres all the wages coming from.I doubt le fondre is gunna come to barnsley

WBA are set to announce the resignation of Roy Hodgson & give the hot seat to assistant manager Keith Downing for a 6 month contract as Interim Manager.

Chelsea are set to announce Roberto Di Matteo as the new Chelsea manager late next week.

Aston Villa CEO Paul Faulkner will announce Alex McLeish leaving Aston Villa after the Norwich game (in 2 weeks).
Villa will then begin the search for their 6th manager in 3 years.
Rumour is Roberto Martinez might go for the job on the terms of being able to bring Victor Moses & Mohammed Diame with him.(18)(14)Why would Martinez go to Villa now that they are carp when he rejected them when they were half way decent... . Martinez isnt leaving Wigan.Wigan are better than VillaWe are a bigger club with the right manager we can be in the top 10 and we have sorted out the finances now near enough we just need to get rid of Heskey, Warnock, Dunne, Collins and we can start to bring in new signings now bore off with Wigan better than us we are 15th they are 16thI'm a Wolves and sadly have to agree that Villa are a far far bigger club than Wigan although Wigan are a much better team. I cannot believe the previous writer hasn't included Hutton in the list of players to go, my office of Villa fans cannot stand him. But if Martinez is to go to Villa and with Whelan being the astute guy he is I think you'll find the clause being that he cannot go in for any Wigan players until January 2013 at the earliest.

BobbybuffonDave Whelan can't stop Martinez,Moses & Diame leaving for Villa due to them all being out of contract in the summer.
Villa have been cost cutting & once they have a GOOD manager again, they should be able to finance a good strike on the top ten.
Bent,Weimann & Moses upfront & Agbonlahor on the bench? sounds good on paper!Martinez signed a new 3 year deal when he rejected Villa last year, Moses has a year left on hi9s contract so your wrong...

Martinez will stayyy02 May 2012 11:57:29

Swindon manager Paolo di Canio is linked to a transfer for veteran goalkeeper David James! The 41 year olds experience would be key to young prodigy Wes Foderingham. May also sign a coaching contract at the club(6)(9)Where did you hear this? I can't see Town spending significant resources on a position that does not require much improvement. I expect Holmes and McCevilly (excuse the spelling) to sign on and Bostock to sign a season long loan. After this I think Paolo will focus on a couple of strikers capable of firing us in to the championship and maybe another creative midfielder and defensive cover. I think that another keeper will be quite low on his wish list to be honest. Not saying you're wrong, but I expect his wages to be pretty high and Fodders has been immense so think that any money spent on this position to be on a better number two or a youngster, but even Smith is handy to have so I wouldn't be too unhappy with the goalkeeping options that we have currently for next season. Maybe a young up and coming guy that will eventually challenge Foderingham would be a better addition to the squad??Rubbish we have a goalkeeping coach a rubbish rumour

tommy forecast released(7)(61)Why would Leeds pay 1 million for Barnard? He's awfulDeluded foolWhat a load of rubbishMaybe values for diarra and jarvis are wrong way roundWill guly be any good tho ?This post is a jokeI can guarantee none of these are real rumours or will ever happen.ITK No, Rumour No, person Yes,Im a saints fan, and this did make me lol...some of them possible, but I doubt we will take many from lower teams, we want experience, we have the youth in our squad. Jarvis is ambitious, but possible, but the price is outrageously wrong. The club has been relegated, they can't afford to keep him on the books so they can't hold out for 11mil, 5mil is possible though. Diarra would be a good signing ofcourse, but the chances are next to none really. We will do well to keep players such as Schniederlin. Chaplow wouldn't be released,and Guly wouldnt be sold. {Ed003's Note - Wolves don't need to sell, but will if a player/players want to leave}A crawley pllayer 2 million
get realChaplow released schneiderlin released what?Really? on any of those and yeovil dont pay fees esp. 400k n that from aa yeovil fan!Chaplow will be released, and it will be difficult to keep hold of schneiderlin

30 Apr 2012 17:15:30
Poss. Leeds team by the end of pre-season: Lonergan, Lees, Pearce, Barrett, White, Snodgrass, Green, McCormack, Clayton, Diouf, Becchio

Beckford, Kenny, Carayol, Ambrose and L. Young are also possible. Bruce, Thompson, Cairns, Rodgers and Somma could also possibly be retained. No certainties with loose cannons Warnock and Bates though, as always. As accurate as I can get.
wally(6)(16)Beckford ? - Wally I think you are dreaming Bates will never pay the wages or transfer fee to get Beckford, also Ambrose has stated that he is happy at Crystal Palace and will sign a new deal.
Luke Young and Kenny are on good money, no way Bates will approve those wage levels, even if they are free agents.
Makes your list look a bit of a pipe dream.
Warnock will makes noise, Bates will stall and I can see a parting of the ways, and mid table again next year.
Likewise if someone comes in with good money for any of your better players, they will be allowed to go, with Bates again stating that they refused to sign a good new contract.
Basically same stuff he said last year after Howson, Johnson & Schmeichel decided to move on for better money.If Diouf signs up I reckon a lot of Leeds fans will stay away like i will in disgust. The guys a total scumbag!!!

Ipswich to make 5 or 6 permanent signings from numerous targets including

GK Doyle, Kuszczak, Alexander
Defence Ward, St Ledger, Halford, Mills,
Midfield Marney, Norris, Crofts
Strikers Murphy, Ritchie, Collins, Madine, Ebanks-Blake

Jewell will also look to loan market for youngsters like Wickham, De Laet, Ayala and don't rule out a move for friend of Jewell Michael Owen

Clearly not all these will sign but these are all potential targets(7)(21)We Dont want Norris back, i can see a possible 4 from these selections


30 Apr 2012 16:58:25
Mark Little, Grant McCann, David Ball, George Boyd, Paul Taylor, Nicky Ajose, Matthew Breeze and Scott Griffiths have all been put on the transfer list at Peterborough.

30 Apr 2012 16:56:12
2 pieces of transfer information regarding players joining Ipswich Town.

I have been told this information by a former coaching staff member who is still in regular contact with the ITFC staff and players.

Firstly, Joel Ward. The deal is all but complete. He has told me that although he decided to stay with Pompey in March, he was very impressed by the training ground and stadium on his visit to here in March. He has been offered the same deal as he was then, and it's just down to Marcus Evans to agree a fee with Pompey. It may seem difficult as Ipswich tend to do a lot of their deals with clauses, for instance, 'x' amount of money after so many appearances. Pompey want the cash up front, but as Jewell has trimmed the wage bill massively since January, it's understood that Evans will get Jewell his number 1 transfer target.

And secondly, Colin Doyle has given ITFC his word that he'll join them regardless of wether Birmingham get promoted or not. He has told them he isn't interested in being number 2 anymore, and he'll come to ITFC to be number 1. Itfc were impressed with his performance against them just under a month ago.(8)(4)First off Ward was in the Januray window not March. Pompey don;t have a leg to stand on anymore on transfer amounts given the decision on selling is handled by administrators. Both targets are on our radar but doubt they are forthcomingITFC do not do deals with a lot of clauses. Owner Marcus Evans doesn't work that way, either buying or selling (though he's more likely to do it when selling, as he did with Wickham). He likes to pay up front and get it done with. As the other reply also said Portsmouth aren't really in a position to call the shots are they?

shocking decision can not handle big players (disaster at Liverpool)
will not rock the boat reason he has been offered the jobWhy do the FA always make such stupid decisions! I think that Harry is the man to bring the squad together and sort out the players psychological problems. I like Hodgson but the Liverpool job proved that a job with high expectations in a short period might not agree with him. Where as Harry is the master of an immediate impact, which is surely what England need so close to a major tournament! Bad, bad decision FA! Another tournament that I will be expecting very little."can not handle big players"

Fulham are looking to ship out a number of their older squad players. People like Dickson Etuhu, Steve Sidwell and Andy Johnson are on their way out with players from the Development Squad looking to make the step up.

It is expected that Martin Jol will sign at least a right back (Nathaniel Clyne is no.1 choice), Nacer Chadli from FC Twente, and along with Pavel Pogrebnyak, another striker to fill the void left by AJ. He was sniffing around for Andre-Pierre Gignac, Lucas Barrios and Mohamed Abdellaoue in January and he could return with bids in Januart.(8)(4)

Peterborough to sign:
Michael Bostwick - Stevenage
Kyle McFadzean - Crawley
Paul Coutts - Preston
Nathaniel Knight-Percival - Wrexham(17)(1)Most PNE fans know Paul Coutts is on his way out. I can see him going back to Peterborough as he was Baby Fergie's best signing when he was our manager.Dnt think posh will get boswick if rumours are true but just rumours boswick is set to join westley at preston along with roberts and laird,as for coutts he as bought into what westley wants from his players so cant see him leaving unless posh pay 800k for himI have to say I do expect Coutts to leave....but PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE learn to write and spell before you give all PNE fans a bad name, youre an embarrassment


30 Apr 2012 14:44:01
Think Adkins will buy 3 or 4 players, 5 at most.

1- a young talented keeper as Davis getting on a bit and Bialkowski is shaky. Maybe Steele but i think he would want 1st straight away.
2- quality CB to compete with Fonte and Hooiveld, possibly Upson?
3- RM, DeRidder isnt consistent enough and final ball is shocking, Guly is okay but no confidence as saints fan bully him after 1 bad game. Jarvis or Phillips, only if bpool dont go up.
4- CM,we have a very young inexpirenced CM but has lots of quality so maybe an older CM.
5- maybe a striker to go with Lambert just in case sharp cant produce goods in prem and Lee doesnt look like a weekly goal scorer.

Apart from that we should do what swansea/norwich do and not be a qpr!(16)(2)Completely agree however I think lee has the quality to be a great playerDe Vries, Marriappa, Jarvis, Whitingham, DJ Cambell?And a LB - Bridge
And a RB - ClyneDJCampbell?? No way-they will be back for Hooper who will have the choice of Premiership football or playing in Scotland in a league with no true competition. Even schoolboy footballers get fed up with that and want to challenge their ability.Oh yeah forgot about RB, we need someone quick as our defence is pretty slow and Blackpool showed that on tv. Clyne hopefully, or a longshot Fabio/Rafeal on loan dont know the difference between them. However us saints fans know most of these rumors are bs and Cortese always keeps his deals quiet. Lets not sell out on the squad that got us to the premTeam is far too slow for the Premiership so it's clear this level of change will be required if survival is the aim


30 Apr 2012 14:41:49
Alex McLeish will be leaving Villa Park att the end of the season of his own will.

He is heading up the list to replace Roy Hodson at West Brom.(13)(20)Please let him stay at villa .Hmmm? One Midlands club relegated, He's doing a great job taking a second one down, I bet Baggies fans will be relishing this one!!After he leads West Brom to relegation are there any other Birmingham clubs he can relegate?

JockBeen around the midlands a bit aint he ? Not a premiership manager i'm afraidI wish you villa fans would get real,you are a mediocre team that wont spend money or pay top wages,if you actualy watch the team they aint that bad,tell us who would do any better.The Scotsman is set to join West Brom because Mcleish wants a hatrick of premier league relegations in the west midlands. West brom chairman peace is delighted to get such a good coach for nought.Villa isn't a big job for potential managers any more. Martinez said no and their won't be a queue of big names lining up. McLeish won't leave unless by mutual consent and a tidy pay off........why would he walk away from his contract?

From a source close to the person in
question (Ross Barkley):
And I quote, "I have had a conversation
with the gaffa and my mate and he
wants to move to a bigger close which
is only over the fields of stanley park,
to the mighty reds"

Therefore I can confirm that Ross
Barkley will be moving to the red side
of merseyside in the summer. {Ed025's Note - what a crock!....(3)(19)Judging by the majority of posts on this site I think a lot of football fans are drunk or high most of the time! {Ed025's Note - or, as in this case...a total pot herb..It's quit true, we sometimes loan our young players out to smaller clubs, just to get them some game time, but we tend to send them places that know something about football, so don't get your hopes up.

Ian Harte has been offered a new 1 year contract

Matthew Connolly transfer from QPR has been agreed (fee around 900k)

No decision from club yet on Hayden Mullins who is available on a free transfer, he wants to stay

Jay Tabb has the option of a 1 year contract extention, no decision from club yet

Definitely leaving the club on free transfers will be Gunnarsson, Howard, Griffin, Baseya, Bignall, Cywka, Williams, Hector & Gage

So many rumours flying about, this is the Shortlist of players they are going for:-

Bjrn Sigurdarson - Lillestro
Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield
Nathaniel Clyne - Crystal Palace
Ryan Bertrand - Chelsea
Peter Whittingham - Cardiff
Dean Whitehead - Stoke

Other targets include:-

Adrian Mariappa - Watford
Andrew Johnson - Fulham
Kieran Richardson - Sunderland
Jamie Mackie - QPR
Kenwyne Jones - Stoke

Gylfi Sigurdsson is NOT on shortlist, however Reading are interested and are playing it down as it's likely either transfer fee and/or bigger club interest will prevent any deal

At this stage there is no interest in any former Reading players, however a deal for Shane Long may be looked at as a result of West Brom situation and manager change

- theroyalinsider(16)(14)Please lets not sign jones...hes well past it.. and richardson... just asking for trouble..Leaving Messi for the January window then?!Why are we getting Connolly? He is not fit to wear the shirt. If you are the "royal inside" tell Mcdermott this could be the worst signing you could make with signing Mullins.So who is the person who thinks this list of players leads up to messi in the summer? Stop talking football you fool! Anyway, I'm a fan of this list, however you didn't include Dame N'Doye from FC Kobenhaven. Heard there is a lot of interest from the club. And I'm not the biggest fan of Hector leaving, I feel like he has a lot of potential, at least enough to stay with the club for a few more years.. See how he pans outThere has been no approach from the club for N'Doye and he is not on the shortlist.

McDermott was in Denmark last week to watch Adam Eckersley. Reading will not be following up interest.

England Line Up (with Roo)





--------------Rooney--------------(24)(27)I would agree with that, tho im not a massive fan of downing. I would have milner, Beckham, Adam Johnson, Aaron Lennon ahead of him. Cahill for me im not sure either, I like him but i think Lescott, Rio and Smalling would be ahead of him. I think Phil Jones will be second choice to Parker, Possibly Carrick in the fold too.No Rooney he doesnt care about international games he never tries.Rooney plays too deep for that to work.Get rid of Terry. Disruptive influence. He is behind the player power at Chelsea and organises England press conferences to slate the team even though hes not captain anymore.Downing? Haha the same Downing who hasnt scored or assisted a prem goal this seasonGot to have 2 up front and downing on the right behave lolBaines should play before coleParker is too slow. I know the london newspapers love him, but he will be the weak link in that team. England will not do well in June with him in the team.Why are we still trying to get Lampard and Gerrard together - it doesn't work. Great players apart but not together. Lets build a team instead of trying to put all the best players together even if iot doesn't work.Haha no parker r u kidding without parker they will be . easily one of the most underrated players in the prem. he always gives 100%I would agree with the team apart from Downing - Lennon should be there or the OX. We need the pace on the flanks keep Parker holding with Lampard playmaker and Gerrard just behind Rooney - after watching Chelsea beat Barca we need Cahill/Terry/Cole as the spine of the defence. Keep them together as they have a good understanding of each other - Kyle is just awesome so he has to go in at right back.


30 Apr 2012 11:53:29
Ipswich will not be making many signings at all. Sorry but I have it on good authority that Marcus Evans has instructed Jewell to cut the squads wage bill first adn foremost hence why some players have been allowed to run down there contracts.
Also he has been told that a little money will be available but if there are to be any "marqui" signings then Jewell will have to sell first.(4)(19)Wel thats rubbish so your saying we will go into the season with one goakkeeper and two centre backs in our squad even rubbish Cleggs not that daft!

Leeds United Line Up 2012/13







White - Bolton Free

Robinson already gone
Big changes coming and major clear out to make room for cost effective grafters. Will see Pompey raided for Pearce and one other. Possible Doncaster cast off Diouff and maybe odd one or two select from QPR if they nose dive. Maybe one reasonable transfer fee but rest bought as teams dive or guys come to end of contract. 'Neils a wise old bird'Warnock has said that he will not be signing robbo permanently, Portsmouth cant afford nunez and it looks like warnock wants to build team around becchio and others so unlikely he will be sold what a stupid postWarnock told robinson he's not getting signed so thats one player of that team already!Dont be stupid portmouth aint got any moneyThis is daft because warnock has already said he wants 9 or 10 players

Watford are interested in taking Sam Baldock on loan from West Ham. With the hammers in the play-offs nothing is likely to happen until their status for next season has been resolved...if at all!(14)(6)

Jon Stead is said to be open to a surprising summer move to Leeds United. Former England under 21 Stead is said to have impressed scouts form West Yorkshire who were present at the final game of the season at Ashton Gate.(6)(17)A thankyou from doncaster rovers.

"Neil Warnock: " I would call Diouf a sewer rat, but that might insult the rats"

Wigan Athletic to sign James Forrest from Celtic.(5)(23)Forrest has just signed a 4 year deal to stay at Celtic.... would take a massive bid of 8-10 million to tempt Celtic I think.Aye rightAre you having a laugh wigen good 1 has wigen got 10 million to spend no dont think so and if he was going to leave celtic which he isnt it would be for totenham {Ed025's Note - i know spelling is not very important....but come on!!!Wigan better have close to 10 mill then, Spurs were knocked back in Jan, and they went in with 5 mill
None of the Celtic team are for sale unless its silly moneyNo danger of him going there,end of.


30 Apr 2012 11:14:18
Neil Warnock is keen on a summer move for Fulhams midfielder Simon Davies. Davies only has a single appearance for the cottagers this season in the PL and is frustrated at the lack of playing time as he only has a year left on his contract.(17)(6)

Out of Contract Tomasz Kuszczak will turn down a move to Watford this summer and instead join Fulham after leaving Old Trafford on a free.

Stoke City youngster set to put pen to paper for walsall again if stoke agree to let him stay for another season long loan. looks unlikely but if he wants 1st team football then experience is what he needs!(4)(3)Name pleaseThe guys on about the legend florent cuvelier which I'd love, rumours floating are we are offering ledesma a bumper contract also his mates hoping to sign for us and mantom is due to sign a year long loan, so flo and sam would be the two year long dealsLooks like Pulis wants Cuvelier to step up to the Championship next season. He has high hopes for him being a regular by 2013/14 season.


30 Apr 2012 10:18:38
Jason Steele one of the brightest young keepers around, BORO already turned down a 4 million bid from arsenal last summer.boro's defence to blame for goals conceded against sensible steele's still only 20. Grant leadbitter looks to be on his way to BORO in summer.(6)(7)Good luck with Leadbitter very average in my opinion and dont let him take set pieces.

Why r millwall fans saying there Gunna sign deeney ur not he's Watford through and through(2)(10)Wasnt he born in birmingham since he came through the ranks of villa just like his brother elisStill doesn't explain why he'd go to Millwall, of all clubs, especially after he's cemented his first-team place and was top scorer this season."Watford through and through" mate its about more than that tese days.Im afraid youre NOT living in the REAL WORLD MATE! Its been PROVED through THE YEARS that theres ABSOLUTALETY NO LOYALTY IN FOOTBALL IM AFRAID!Im pretty sure he has a birmingham badge tattoed on his legAnd he has Mill & Wall tattooed across his arse cheeks!Look....I doubt he's loyal, but he's not going to go to Millwall.
Are you a better team? No......
Can you offer enough money? No......
Would you pay more wages? No....

Birmingham City will pick up Christian Riberio on a free as he will not be offered a new deal by Bristol City sources at Birmingham tell me they where prepared to offer money for him if offered a new deal, after his impressive performances on loan this season for Scunthorpe and Carlisle(4)(18)


30 Apr 2012 10:00:48

30 Apr 2012 09:59:36
Ipswich are talking to Joel Ward and his agent after manager Paul Jewell renewed his interest in versatile midfielder. Ipswich saw a bid accepted in January for Ward but Ward failed to agree personal terms

Sheffield Wednesday striker Gary Madine is also on Ipswich manager Paul Jewell's radar but the deal may all depend on what league Sheffield Wednesday are playing in next season.

With Ipswich having only one keeper contracted to the club, a keeper is high on Paul Jewell's wanted list, Birmingham out of contract keeper Colin Doyle is one name Paul Jewell has said he's interested in, another player set to be in Paul Jewell's list is American goalkeeper Brad Guzan who is available on a free transfer after not agreeing new terms with current club Aston Villa(10)(8)I'm bored of this and I'm a town fan Ward does not want to come to us. Guzan also is not coming.LOL the suffolk massives

Rumors around reliable sources say that when Roy Hodgson takes the england job, WBA already have a few candidates in mind. Theres a short list of Alan Curbishley, Gary Megson, Mick McCarthy. They will try to lure Christopher Hughton from Birmingham but it will be tough if the blues are triumphant in the play offs.(5)(12)If the shortlist only includes Alan Curbishley, Gary Megson, Mick McCarthy then it has to be big welcome to Mr Curbishley.You area wolves fan then i take it. curbishley may be of interest to them, megson? the world would end before megson and peace worked together again. mccarthy - behaveYou can believe what you want to believe but my source is reliable. They call him the Nostradamus of midlands footballYour getting thick mick and his lappdog connorI would ps myself if mick got the job. Although i ain't gonna hold my breath.

Jermaine Beckford to return his former club LEED S United this summer as he's not in Nigel Pearsons plans for tne next season after bust up on saturday -ssn source - FACT(20)(13)And where's the money coming from? LOL at this.Where is the story link for this?Every time I see 'FACT' at the end of a post I know it should say 'bollox'.Dreams?LOLeeds

Who are they?

ExaclyBeckford got subbed at 45 min because he refused to play against Leeds - We all cheered him and he responded in a fitting way - He hasn't enjoyed football much since leaving Leeds, but he has made tons of money - so he doesn't need big wages now + you can just offer him a lump sum if we get promoted instead of wages throughout year


30 Apr 2012 09:32:55
Looks like Leeds's move for Jason Pearce has fallen through, with Ipswich set to sign the defender on a three year deal, with Paul Green also joining later this week.(8)(28)This is good news forthe tractor boy fans, as Pearce, Ward, & Green will give the team a stronger spine, also expect to see Kuszczak of Man U arrive to take up the No1 gloves at Town, next will be another LB and a RB, and another Stronger CBAbsolute rubbish. No - one has reported anything that differs from Leeds agreeing a deal to sign Pearce, Sources SSN, Sun, Guardian, even the Pompey website. I know Paul Jewell has an obsession with signing every Leeds United target but your off the mark.Says in yorkshire evening post pearce deal is practically completed and is just a formality so sounds like your wrong...Everything agreed between Leeds, Pompey (Administrators) and player, that's why he didn't play saturday.Poster 2 to be fair we went in for him first when he was at Bournmouth and have now tried and failed 3 times to get him. He's off to Leeds.Pretty sure he's already agreed a contract which is why he didn't play for Pompey at the weekend.

Tony mowbray set to spend 4m of his 6m summer budget on huddersfield town hot shot jordan rhodes(3)(28)Tony mowbray to be the new WBA manager... againNo he's notIm a boro fan and that is bullsht, like he would be that cheap haha, and we already have big target men like main and jutkiewiczLOL at anyone knowing a managers budget!Story on the south coast is,he's on his way to Brighton,they've supposedly had a large bid accepted,don't know how much and can't see this happening but as the old saying goes, "no smoke without fire". Time will tell,but think the player can do much better than Brighton.Im still confused as to why such high amounts of money are being banged about for this lad. Dont get me wrong hes got ability, but who in their right mind would spend 4 million pounds on an unproven league one player. Ched Evans was hardly prolific in the championship, goes to league one and is the top scorer, that about says it all. If a team spend 4 million and it pays off, fair enough but its a huge gamble on a player that may lack pace and physical presence to cut it in the prem.Jordan Rhodes scored most of his goals against the smaller teams in that league and very few against the top six. Taking him would be a gamble but one that will taken very soon, you just can't argue with 36 goals at his age.Doubt any team will spend 4m on 1 player in Championship especially with new FFP rulesHmm did you not see the 4 goals at Hilsborough.

Rumors gathering momentum that West Bromich Albion will replace Roy Hodgson with a caretaker manager until the end of the season (If Roy decides to leave Albion immediately). Eventually he will be replaced by Gary Megson with Glenn Roeder when they both leave the Aston Villa scouting staff at the end of the season.(7)(26)Why would he leave immediately. Theres is only two games left in the season so would probably finish them of, because the england job wont start really until the euro's, and secondly, if he leaves now, the FA will have to pay compensation to WBA, which would be stupid, because they can get him for free in a couple weeks!A good shout would be michael appleton who seems to have cut his management teeth with portsmouth, not his fault they got relegatedMegson christ league 1 here you go

Although terry Connor doesn't want guedioura to leave the club he will be making his loan move to Nottingham forest permanent after the Algerian midfielder hinted that he would love to stay at the club.(13)(13)With nottm forests ongoing financial issues i believe you/they would have to sell one of your/their best players in order for this deal to go throughSo as the all the championship teams look to reduce wages to comply with FFP forest will be signing a player on premier league wages!!We should do everything in our power to keep AG. He is easily one of the best midfielders in the league. However like most clubs in the championship we are proper skint....and Wolves are not skint!

roy hodgson talking to fa regarding england job(26)(4)I hope notGod help england boring football will be playedMaybe england will actually start winning now.

i can't believe that all you people moan about is boring football. IMO there's no such thing. you watch football because you enjoy the sport. good defending is just as good to watch as good attacking. england have been awful for years, and there is now a glimmer of hope for them and all you can say is that "boring football will be played"? I find that astounding.So you would rather watch west brom than spurs! get alife! redknapps the best man for the engld job! and thats from a gooner!Gerrard quits international footballI would prefer hodgson to redknapp harry only does well with money look at what roy hodgson has done at west brom hes turned them around hes good defensivley and thats what england lack i would be delighted if he took the job also im a man utd fan before you start saying im a baggie
p.s redknapp never stays anywhere long he would probably leave after euros so give it roy
THE HEMMINATORThe fa just dont want harry because he speaks his mind! the fa dont want aggro! yet they give cappello a 6m a year deal! what a joke they are!Yeah cus Redknapp had loads at Portsmouth?While i respect hodgsons cv,what happened to him at liverpool! and surely harry deserves an interview! typical fa,no class!so far!Portsmouth didn't have any money when Harry was there, however still spent millionsHarry has been messing about with the England job for far too long. You cant be naive enough to believe they never approached Harry. They will of done, but unofficially as to not undermine the appointment of another manager as being "second choice", "sloppy seconds". Roy is probably England's second best option and his experience and ability cannot be questioned. I hope he brings success.Listen, the only reason they went to hodgson first is to give them a stronger bargaining position with spurs. Otherwise it would be up to levy and redknapp to name their own price. HR will get the jobGood old Woy far better choice than the "wheeler dealer"Well done the f.a,dont want tarnished arry the man is a disgrace to all hard working people.

I would look to portsmouth you might get 1 or 2 of them.I dont see us going for Surman but believe me if we did he would come back.If surman had the choice.. He would prob choose the saints, As his heart is with the club... Only financial problems at the time, Caused us to sell him.


29 Apr 2012 19:54:23
Reading are keen on Niko Kranjcar from Tottenham. He wants out from and with Spurs likely to sign another midfielder his time is up. Reading, with the new investment money and the cash gained from promotion will have to fork out a fee of around £5m with wages around the £30,000p/w mark.(29)(22)He wont cost 5m. Half that, and they are interested, but so are Saints and WBA.We wont be paying players 30k a week. This is a complete non starter

Burnleys Jay Rodriguez on verge of a 5M move to Reading with Simon Church on to Burnley has part of deal(14)(26)Unlikely because Church ain't worth a penny. Would be a great signing for reading thoughFunny that, Church is highly rated at Reading and would cost in the region of 2m if made available.

However this rumour is nonsense. Reading are not interested at that price. Good player but can't justify that fee yet.Think your find hes set for saintsLOL at any newly promoted club taking an expensive punt on someone with no PL experience.

For 5-6m you can get Yakubu twice!

Wake up! {Ed003's Note - Very good player}Isnt Jay Rod a free transfer? {Ed003's Note - He has 12 months left on his contract,Burnley will cash in this next window}That's funny because I'm a Reading fan and can tell you Church is not worth 2m.I believe Jay Rodriguez is also a target for Lambert at Norwich this summer.Another one of the million players the Library club are buying...New Man City?Because your a reading fan doesnt mean you know the value..numpty. Go back to football managerWhy is Jay Rod getting so much praise. Don't get me wrong im not a Burnley fan so I don't know how good he is week in week out. However looking at the stats paying 5 million pounds for a striker who is only joint seventh top scorer in the championship seems a bit risky and not prolific by any stretch.Ha Ha Connor Wickham anyone!! How much did he go for??An 8 mill minnimum fee has been put on jays head as five prem teams want him! reading are not one of them teams either.Bags of ability, more to his all round game than scoring goals. Definitely can step up to the plate in the Premier LeagueMust admit im also not a Burnley fan....But i do really like the look of J-Rod! All round ability that this lad has got is something special.At the right club he can deffo get in the full England squad.What an exciting English prospect Burnley have on there hands. 8M Sounds cheap to me.Can we swap him for Andy Carroll. {Ed025's Note - you would get 7m change as well..

Peterborough United are in talks with four players for deals that could be completed by the end of May, just in time for pre season.
Ebbsfleet midfielder Neil Barrett has been training with the club with a view to a one year deal. Barrett is set to sign the deal before the end of this week and the 30 year old former York player is keen on the chance of returning to the Championship after a number of years with Portsmouth.
Young Arsenal striker Zak Ansah has also been training at London Road and is set to sign on loan for the whole of next season. The teenager is highly regarded in North London and is expected to sign a new five year deall before the deal is completed.
Manager Darren Ferguson has been looking for a goalkeeper in the last few months and looks to have come across one in Northern Ireland international Michael McGovern. The 27 year old stopper is available for around £65,000 and could sign a three year deal from Falkirk.
Finally, another non league player in Greg Young could sign a one year deal. The Alfreton defender has played Altrincham and Halifax in the past and has not had a lot of previous Football League experience. Young is a free agent once the season ends.(2)(11)Please tell me this is an awful joke

It has been mentioned in dispatches that Chris Humphrey the Motherwell flying machine is desrined for the South Coast, after an amazing end of season purple patch.

Humphrey was linked in January 2012, but Motherwell took him out of the firing line and he missed the chance to impress. Southampton, would need to put a decent bid in to price the Flying winger away from playing Champions league next seasonm with Motherwell football Club.(8)(7)Flying?? Whats he on Red Bull?

All those people who were slated for the Kean (Blackburn) out, have now been vindicated in their protests. Listen to the fans.(1)(15)The Venkys choose Kean because he was the cheap option, the same reason big Sam was sacked, to save money, then they have cashed in by selling Phil Jones, and also got many high wage players off the books as well.
Kean's Playing career was almost zero, never made Celtic 1st team, played 4 times for Swansea on loan and that's about it, no previous managerial experience so what exactly did Venky's expect.

Expect it to get worse with the Venky's still in charge when you are in championship next season, especially if they continue to stick with Kean.It wasnt the fact the fans were protesting, it was the aggresive way they were protesting.
Kean only got the job because his agent was the advisor for the Venkys on their takeover.
Of course you need to have had an established playing career to be a good manager, just like Wenger, Ferguson, Hodgson or Mourinho

As Wolves are relegated, a host of players are set to leave.

Matt Jarvis being looked at by a host of clubs, Swansea and Sunderland being the favourites to sign him.

Sylvan Ebanks-Blake to Ipswich

Kevin Doyle could join Celtic but Fulham hoping to scupper the deal with Everton also showing interest.

Kightly's contract is up at the end of the season and Watford look the most likely to get him on a free after he enjoyed a loan spell with the Hornets(14)(13)Kightly will get a new contract at Wolves, he's been possibly our best player in recent weeks. Ebanks will most likely be part of our plans next season too.Kightly's contract has another year to run - just one of 47 reasons he won't be joining Watford.All those players you have just named will most probably still be here...i spoke to jarvis after the man city game last week and he said he owes wolves and he loves it here...he said its perfect for him...he will not leave3.5m fee agreed for Doyle to return to Reading. He's top of McDermott's list.LOL at Jarvis saying that! He has an England cap. He wants to play at the highest level. Money also comes before loyalty. Accept it, sadly that is what todays game is all about.I think the third response is what TC dreams about at night.I believe Villa will be keeping a close eye on jarvis and kightlys situations when they are finally deemed safe. They are in dire need of a consistent winger and with wolves being relegated jarvis will definately move on and kightly has rediscovered his form. Since kightly has either a couple of months or just over a year left on his contract he could be brought for anything between free and 3.5 million.

To the watford fan above..... Dream on kightlys on the up unless he stays at wolves. He wont take a step down.If he doesn't want to take a step down why would he join Villa?Best rumour of the day football league fans i have missed you...! JARVIS YEAH hes off and thats fine only performs in glimpses anyway hes idol! kightly back to watford looooooool crazy i cant even name any of you star players... he loves wolves and will be back for a championship title push next season.., as for blakey your welcome if anyone can get fat boy to shift that weight they are welcome to him! doyle is more likely to be going with us keeping fletcher which out of the two is a much better deal...hes been a loyal guy and wish him well...., keep these cracking rumours coming please ;)What all you Wolves fans are forgetting is that your income has now dropped by 30m pa, you can gamble on a bounce back but if it does not happen then you are screwed, within two years you'll be in league1 in administration.

A poor team in the prem is still a poor team in the championship, rebuilding is required to plug the gaps. That means spending money that you have not got. Financing that by selling players will reduce the wage bill at the same time as providing a team to compete.

Oh yeah I forgot Wolves are Ji-ints and don't need to work to a budget like everyone else. If you lot don't start getting real very soon you're in for a tough few years.

norwich poss outs e ward z whitbread andrew crofts andrew surman simeon jackson leon barnett steve morison wes hoolanhan adam drury david fox wilberham all our bit part players under lambo ward and whitbread are 12 game a season players both spend to much time in the sick bay /////irk(4)(13)Dont agree with alot of this.
Ward yes, has struggled recently
Whitbread no chance, when fit has been our best defender this season by a long way and played the most of all our CBs.
Crofts likely to go as hasnt featured much
Surman will stay, playing well and scoring goals
Jackson can most likely go as not featuring now Vaughan is fit
Barnett Can do one, not good enough
Morison id think will stay, needs to sort his head out and get back to his form from the first half of this season.
Hoolahan, no chance he will leave, our most creative player by a mile. Him and howson in front of a new DM with 2 wingers and 1 up top could cause havoc.
Drury will most likely leave
Fax will stay, good passes, dictates tempo very well
Wilbraham will get another year as he is great for the dressing room and is happy on the bench.

Swindon are set to release Phil Smith, Mark Scott, Callum Kennedy, Etienne Esajas and also Lander Gabilondo.

Lukas Magera is set to return to his former club on a free transfer. Alan Connell is being looked at by Burton Albion, Exeter City and also Chesterfield.

Matt Ritchie has been attracting interest from many Championship clubs throughout January but it looks likely that he will stay at Swindon with the club now back in League 1.

Swindon will look to secure Southampton loanee Lee Holmes and re-sign Jon Bostock on loan for the season from Tottenham. Swindon are also looking to capturing Steve Howard who has just been released from Leicester City. Rotherham United striker Lewis Grabban has also been linked with Swindon, the Wiltshire outfit apparently bidding around 200k for the Yorkshire man last week.(9)(3)Don't forget Dave Rihoy and Ross Allen from Guernsey!Apparently rotherham are also looking at alan connell because leyton orient looking at signing alex revell back

Tommy smith(8)(18)Donnelly possible as is Smith depending on QPR's status. Kuczczak may sign after contract offer, but a response may be a few days off due to the birth of is child. Forget Kitson, Taylor & Ward & RitchieSmith would be a good acquisition. Ward is an almost certainty to join ipswich, Ritchie will stay at swindon as their newly promoted, kitson would be ok along with donnelly. What i cannot understand is that loach is a brilliant keeper and id rather have him than kuczczack


29 Apr 2012 14:28:38
Burnley are interested in signing Leicester captain Matt Mills on loan for next season after the former Reading defender fell out with boss Nigel Pearson.(4)(17)I bet they areSorry mate but he's on his way to leeds !He's on 40k a week, as if Burnley can afford that - and Leicester wont agree to share the wages.Wont be going anywhere near Leeds you wont put the cash up for him and didnt he already snub you in january? hes Leicester born & bred so he will want to stay & fight for place



29 Apr 2012 14:21:59
Halford and Pearce have agreed moves, Pearce most likely to Leeds.
Also Ben Haim will be leaving as his wages are way too high and his refusal to come on the pitch at the lap of honour last week has disgraced many.(15)(2)Sad to see pearce go, he is a good defender along with halford. However, im glad ben haim is going, he is overrated and should have been sold in the summer

Charlton to sign Billy Paynter from leeds along with John Bostock from spurs. Lee Martin who had a loan spell at the valley last year is keen to leave ipswitch for a return. With only one right back at the club (chris solly) charlton are looking to resign Yassin Moutakil. Powell has also stated in an interview this week that 'Andros Townsend is a player we are keen to have on board'. Danny Shittu is likely to make a return to the club he started his career at. Glenn Murry at palace wants to end his at nightmare slehurst park by making the short move too charlton. Anton Fortune is also ready to call time at his career with west brom and make a move to london with charlton as the likely outlet.(7)(18)Haha lee martin will not be leaving ipswich! he only missed 4games this season! why would he join a club that will struggle to stay up this year!Cuckoo, cuckoo - first one of spring! Lee Martin publicly stated wants to stay at Ipswich, wants new contract so no way moving to Chorlton,Lee martin is not going to leave ipswich to come to charlton, he has only just told the press that he wants to be at ipswich for years to comeLet me get things straight, im a charlton fan, yes lee martin wont come to us yes he said he wants so stay with you but my point is
A) Charlton have more funds available and are a more attractive club than Ipswich
B)We will be higher up than Ipswich, i am close to the club and im tried of people posting rubbish on here so im telling the truth, we have some VERY good signings done and lined upCharlton fans trash talking, trying to act like a big club, aha. Enjoy your spell in the championship as your off back to league one next season. Cheerio.OFC Ipswich have had a wonderful season finishing in the dizzy heights of 15th. You only just scrapped past Donny and were wooped by Millwall what a finish. Norwich, now there's an East Anglian team to watch! :PLOL the soffolk massives aer at it againThis is just a load of rbbish whoever wrote this. Moutaouakil is at Hayes and Yeading, Billy Paynter as a rumour is a year old, Bostock probably won't come, Martin as people have said will stay, Powell's said NOTHING like that, Shittu would be plausible if not likely, Murray won't come, Fortune won't come. We're only interested in signing players who see us as a step up apparently. Or, that's the logical conclusion, based on the signings we've made under SCP. And whoever said we're going straight back down - look at our form, our squad, and - well - everything.

These players wages might be too big for that!Oh and to pint out, as of yesterday evening, all of your players are now free agentsWhen are pompey fans
going to realise they cant
afford the wages of
the players on that list

about time you woke upHowards a free agent so no loanTo the person that likes to pint things out, the players have not become free agents as they are still contracted to the club except for the few whose contracts have expired. thats why pompey are able to sell most of the squad. It would cut the wage bill if they were free agents. so drink your pints instead of writing rubbish on hereI hope that they do get ellington cos him and futcas would be deadly in league 1

We wouldn't take 3 million for him. Keep dreaming as everyone of them players would cost more than you've stated, just a kids mind running wild again.

Luka Modric is set to leave Tottenham this summer with both Manchester clubs heading the queue for his signature. Tottenham reportedly rejected a £35m bid from Chelsea last summer but a similar fee may see him leave the club this year with no champions league looking likely and Harry Redknapp set to takeover the reigns as England manager. Gareth Bale could also be on his way, Barcelona are willing to offer £25m along with Ibrahim Affelay but Spurs want £40m cash. Emmanuel Adebayor is another player who looks unlikely to be at the lane next year as he is not willing to lower his wage demands. Tottenham's new manager could face a major rebuilding job should he lose these players but i'm sure Daniel Levy will give him at least £50m of the money to spend.(16)(12)How is chamions league not likely , a win today will put them 4th with the easiest run in. no point in commenting on Spurs coming and goings until season is finishedLets clear this up? According to ssn, premier league world & most media chelsea reportedly offered 40 mill for modric! Two teams from spain have bids on the table and it now seems psg are interested in the player? As for bale I personally dont think he will go? just some information that has passed which thinks he wont go! as for redknapp the quicker hes out the club the better! adebayor probably won't stay! spurs will invest they will also look to modify their pay structure!Harry redknapp signs for inland revenue,they want to learn his tricks,how can england even consider this man.

Beckford to return to his beloved elland rd.FACT(29)(29)Leeds one of relegation favourites, Beckford already at much bigger clubSorry, how are we relegation favourites? We'll have a new team next season, its impossible to tell where we'll be, but with Warnock in charge, I doubt it will be in the bottom three. I think its fair to say that without their money, Leicester would have been relegated this season, the way they started.
wallyBeckford is going to West HamLeeds favourite for relegation? What are you on? Get ya facts right and stop making random stuff up. Leeds much bigger than Leicester FACT! End ofSure you deluded half wit, thats why were early favourites with several bookies. Also if i remember rightly Beckford gave an interview when he joined Leicester and maintained that Leeds was the biggest club he's ever played for (not the answer that they were looking for lol). Beckford didn't even bother to play yesterday for Leicester (too busy admiring the Leeds support that never forgets those that have achieved at the club and offered to swap shirts with Bruce.
Come home Beckford - Midlands is a sh^thole full of tinpot cardboard cut out fansIf he goes it will be to eland road ps I'm a Leeds fan from the midlands be niceBeckford to Leeds, get real , with Bates in charge no chance he will release the funds to sign him, nor pay his wage demands, he's on something like 20K/wk at Leicester , Warnock will instead go for his old timers, so called proven players at championship level, either free transfers or loan jobs, and frankly I see nothing but mid table for next season and Warnock sacked by Christmas, so Bates can use him as a scapegoat."LEEDS BIGGER THAN LEICESTER" HA HA HA HA

deluded leeds fans on ere make me laugh your still living in the past mate.

Southampton wish list:
Morten Gamst Pedersen - 7m
Buzsaky- 4m
Kevin Doyle- 4m
Roger Johnson- 5m
Robert Snodgrass- 5.5m
Kyle Naughton - Loan
De Bruyne - Loan
Clyne - 5m
Marvin Emnes - 6m
Andy King - 4m
Wilfried Zaha - 8m

Any few of these should fit the bill to make saints a strong team for next year :)(7)(33)I will drive Johnson there myself and throw in Stearman but please let us keep Doyle.What a team of players in relegated teams and the championship? great team thereOh yeah that definitely doesn't work. Look at the obvious failures of Norwich and Swansea who just bought loads of Championship and League 1 players and the blatant success of QPR who bought established Premiership players.Dream on stop taking the fairy dustPlease take roger johnson just have him!! we dont want any moneyRight..

- Pedersen: Too old and done nothing for bburn this season so no.

- Buzsaky: Not done much for QPR so can't see us signing him.

- Doyle: Will be overpriced, has been relegated with both his prem teams and averages 10 goals a season.. not what Saints are looking for.

- Roger Johnson: Possible. Was good at B'ham and we could do with another CB, if the price is right maybe 2-3 million max.

- Snodgrass: Quality signing. Would be hard to get from Leeds but if they don't show intent for next season can seem him getting impatient and wanting to leave. Expensive though, up to 5million for him.

- Naughton: not bad signing, probably will be competition for him. Probably wouldn't come as I don't think we would start him and he could get first team loan elsewhere.

- De bruyne: quality loan signing but unlikely.

- Clyne: quality signing but will be hard to get. Will be expensive.

- Emnes: 6 million? Get to. Going no where near him. Maybe a couple million to have him as a bench warmer, not 6 mill though.

- Andy King: No thanks

- Zaha: good player, think we could do with experience though, rather than over priced youth.Where re you going to get that sort of money from certainly wishful thinkingAlso, What about the team that took you up to the premiership, going to ignore them are we, if saints go this route, it's certain relegation end of next season, talk about loyalty to players that got you to the promised land, Sucks5m for Clyne and Naughton on loan. Two right backs, really?Southampton fans are will hardly invest im sure but yeah come and take johnson hes a fantastic players isnt he ..., i mean look how good he was at birmingham the year before he joined us wow amazing..., and doyle hmmm doubt you will get him out of your budget ladsNearly 50m in fees, another 5-10m in sign on and agents 300k per week in wages (15m a season x 3 year deals = 45m)

Rumour should be ... Southampton to get over ambitious and re-enter administration as the fierce rivalry over financial mis-management rages on in HampshireHow is this Southampton getting ambitious? Its one silly fan getting over excited about going to the prem. Saints do have money but they try to spend it wisely. They probably wont get any of these players.

Peter Odemwingie, is leaving the Albion over the summer, Arsenal had submitted a offer
but it was previously with a player attached This time they are looking at a 5.5 million offer straight cash as they believe he can add to the squad goals. Albion looking to seal 2 argentinians over next couple of weeks 1 a striker the other defensive midfielder both on fringes of national team. Steven Naismith from Rangers deal almost done 2.24 million for the midfielder.(8)(15)I thought Wenger did n,t sign anyone over 30 ? if so that rules Odenwingie out.

Reading have agreed to buy matt Connolly of QPR, a deal for n'doyle is close to be agreed.Kevin Doyle will not return neither will Stephen Hunt.Gyfil Sigurdson will come if Hammond can get him cheap(unlikely).Marriapra from Watford may come for a 2 Million fee(ish).Andy Johnson will join if QPR get relegated.Keiran Richadson may join as well.But this will mean some fringe players will go the other way.(10)(7)You won't get Marriapa for 2m - dream on - 2m + Kebe - might be getting closeDream on getting Kebe. I think 2m will be enough as you need the cash and the lure of prem football will make him come. Even tho I don't know who actually is.

with the sale of varney,pearce,futacs,lawrence,huseklepp,henderson,kitson, and the return of loans to karim rekik,scott allan and chris maguire the portsmouth keep some of your good players like:
jamie ashdown,aaron mokoena,ricardo rocha,joel ward,hayden mullins and david norris(6)(21)I'm sorry Pompey fan, but that wont happen, all of you squad are free agents, and you certainly wont be hanging on to the players you've mentioned, they will be gone

Welsh club Neath Athletic will join the Western League in the summer, after being denied a Welsh Premier League spot.(3)(7)Heard this one as well. Surprised they'd been denied a spot in the WPL (heard they're short of cash though).

Would they really want to re-start at Step 6 in England? Ok, they could 'do a Guernsey' and get promoted easily but think of crowds and revenue. Unless they get good crowds, which won't happen unless they are in the FA Vase/Cup they will struggle to attract fans whilst their neighbours are in the English Premiership.


29 Apr 2012 03:30:26
Simon Church to Coventry on a free(8)(44)He's not on a free this summer.... but wont feature in the prem. can see him going to mid table championship team like west ham!I'd pay Coventry to take him.Hope soHes not out of contract?, but yeah id pay you to take himYou can have him but he won't be free.You can have him for 500,000

he is Unless he cancels his contract it won't be a free.

Swindon have bid for him anyway.


29 Apr 2012 03:29:51
Norwich City to re-sign Robert Green?(8)(33)Does sound likelyWhy would they, with two young goalkeepers both getting England Int Honour's as they progress as back up for Ruddy.
No chance Norwich would take him back simply because they don't need himGreen's desperate to play in the Prem then?

Can't see it happening personally - maybe a move to the SPL?


29 Apr 2012 03:25:52
Frank Lampard and John Terry will join QPR in the Summer after Euro 2012(19)(72)What and play in the championship lolHaHa, what so they can finish their career's in championship.
If they do survive in premiership do you really believe QPR will pay 150,000+ each per week. Fernandas is a multi millionaire not a billionaire who has already thrown stupid money on wages for Mark Hughes so they could get some so called top players in.Ye and I'm about to join Real Madrid for an undisclosed fee as a replacement for Ronaldo.Yeh and terry will room with anton ferdinandBoth has beens
terry a liar bilityTerry & Lampard - past their best, - yeah right, that's why Chelsea will keep both of them next season, and compared to the poor expensive signings and large wage bills added by Hughes still top players.
Hughes spent big at Blackburn, and Man City with Man City still trying to offload some of them, because of high wages.
Should be fun in championship next season for all you QPR fans............Presume you mean IF they stay up.

Lampard - possible, Terry - no chance while Anton Ferdinand is there.

If QPR are going to throw silly money around then perhaps, but Di Matteo won't want to lose these two players as they are key to Chelsea.


29 Apr 2012 03:24:23
Swindon to sign Hayden Mullins and Steve Howard.(11)(32)Can see this happening - two good additions. Aden Flint is leaving for a club back north in the summer (Doncaster?), so Mullins will be a good replacement


29 Apr 2012 03:23:07
Southampton to buy Coventry's Carl Baker.(13)(25)They can have him hes pantsDon't really see why they would want him, he's not really very good!He plays ok for Cov sometimes.. does Adkins see something in him that Cov fans can't?

portsmouth to try to maintain a reasonable team to play next season it will sell for : pearce,kitson,lawrence,huseklepp,varney,benjani and henderson.
portsmouth tried to keep with it : ashdown,ward,rocha,mokoena,norris and futacs
besides having players from the academy: sam magri,chinedu vine,lewis tallack,adam webster and ashley harris
with sales portsmouth collects the money,not spend anything with transfers and will maintain reasonable for a team championship to disappear
with this,the team owner of portsmouth for the season 2012/13 will be:
18-chinedu vine(4)(19)Really sad!
In another few weeks there will be no money left to pay any wages, so where are the funds coming from to run the club?You have no money to spend person you owe and are in debt you should be closed down.You can't even afford your training ground mate, let alone these players...
Your even applying to south coast colleges (Itchen College from Southampton is their favourite) just to be able to train at all.
