–––––––––BIG T–––––––––
  I am a concierge at the Hotel de Paris in Monaco and tonight Mr Karim Benzema attended a suite hired by Mr David Gill.
  Firstly, people who can't spell properly on here should really take a look at themselves. Do you think anyone takes you seriously? "my sauce at teh club . . ." etc, give me break! Anyway, expect Spurs to wrap up the signings of Corluka, Pavlyuchenko, and finally Arshavin when
Berbatov signs for Man Utd in a couple of days. Raul Albiol, Nicolas Pareja, and Miguel Veloso are all being looked at as well.
  To everyone that says Ricardo Quaresma will sign for Liverpool, Real Madrid and Manchester United – IT WONT HAPPEN

  –––AFC–––Miguel Veloso will sign for Arsenal over the weekend!The fee could rise to above £15million if targets are reached.
No fee will change hands if Senderos stays at Milan!It will be a straight swap for Yoann Gourcuff when he completes his loan at Bordeaux.
  Now quite a few of you are saying berba will sign for newcastle, bayern. Just to clear things up he will sign for man u. The reason is spurs get more money and since berba has been training with the defenders they would no how fast he is and his abilitys. . and 2 the newc fan y would a promising lad that i think isnt at his full potential take a step BACKWARDS. soz to all newcastle fans som of u r alright.

Im not even a manchester fan. Im a scouser.

LFC to sign riera and rafinha
out, finnan. pennant to stay as backup

Plz people KEEP IT REAL
  Surely you mean. . "West Brom will WEAKEN their defence with the signings of Michael Duberry from Reading and Lloyd Dooley from Watford"
  Some of the stuff put on here is class
" Berbatov to newcastle"
"Riorden to Rangers"

there is no way that berbatov would want to join a bunch of losers like newcastle and fight a relegation battle when there are a few big teams interested in him.

As for Celtic selling Roiden to rangers, it will NEVER happen. There will never be a player transferred between the old firm.

Anyway on to rumours about the 3 in a row champs.

Fletcher from hibs will be done on Monday – £3M + Killen.
Riorden to Burnley – £250k (its our last chance to get anything for him)
Big bobo to stay and sit in the reserves picking up £25k a week until january when he will finally sign for birmingham.
Hopefully a decent left back will join Scotlands ONLY reps in the Champions League before the window closes.
4in a row
Arsene in an interview has hinted of he possibility of bringing to new faces to the club. One may come tomorrow or both will come close to midnight on deadline day. I have no idea who these players are and according to wenger neither did he but he sounded like he knew who he wanted. hopefully its a midfielder and attacker the latest rumour to go round is veloso and there is one about frings but the striker if it is a striker hes going to buy then maybe owen as hes not happy at newcastle
In arsene we trust

with paul ince already having signed robinson,simpson,grella,andrews,santa cruz,villanueva and will sign northampton keeper bunn and will add 1 more player to his midfield and the right winer will either be pennant,joaquin or lennon as he looks to get into europe in his 1st season as a prem manager his line up will be

The club are attempting to sign Estonian strikers Henir Anier and Vladislav Gussev by the transfer deadline.
  Quick one. .

AW of Arsenal to sign two unexpected players over the weekend. Miguel Veloso and Michael Owen; £15m and £9m respectively. Veloso deal is happening so quickly that Arsenal staff will conduct medical in Portugal tomorrow.
  Eidur Gudjonsson will sign on loan for Stoke
  West Brom will strengthen their defence with the signings of Michael Duberry from Reading and Lloyd Dooley from Watford.
  Bayern eye Berbatov swoop!
They can have him,we don't need him !!
  Looks like the love affair with the locals and Middlesbrough FC is a little shaky.

Boro has placed an "exclusion zone" around the 5 hotel they're building in their training complex. This has angered the locals as it has always been somewhere just off the right of way, that is very popular with the ramblers etc.

Boro may now expect lots of objections to their next planning application from irate villagers – who may even begin a campaign to boycott home games!
  Shit!!!!!! looks like liverpool not gettting quaresma as its rumoured he is goin 2 sign for inter 2day. Benitez messd up big time dis time. QUIIIKKLY RAFA MAKE A BID AS QUARESMA WUD RATHER CUM ANFIELD DEN GO 2 INTER!!!!!!!
  "Also expect another attempt for Whittingham from Cardiff and CLEMENCE FROM BIRMINGHAM.You heard it from the Main Man Dan"
Well, I didn't Know Leicester Sold Clemence Did You? Tottenham To Sign Huntelaar & Pavlyuchenko.
Leicester 4 The League!
  The people who are saying Ryan Shawcross is to sign for West Brom or Wolves are dreaming. He is enjoying his life at Stoke and is not unsettled at all. He will one day be a England international and has a fantastic future ahead of him. Yes I agree that he will not be at Stoke at some point in the future, as the big boy`s will offer to much for Stoke to turn down.
  We all know Rafa wants Pennant off the wage bill and to recoup some money for another signing. I have just seen him enter Hull City's training ground. Offer is believed to be in the region of £6million.

Bad business for Hull.

The same source that told me last night that James Milner was having a medical at Aston Villa in the morning has told me that Martin O Neill is in talks with Zenit over signing Andrey Arshavin in a deal that could in excess of £20 million

It seems O Neill has waited to see if any big side or Tottenham could sign Arshavin and now it seems like that is not going to happen O Neill has decided to pounce it what would be the biggest coup of the summer
  Just heard from my son who works for the press in Liverpool that Riera is there right now, however he will NOT be the final signing for LFC. LFC are weak for numbers in attack and the final piece to the jigsaw is expected to be Henrik Larsson.
  CELTIC will sign the following in the next few days and following will leave.

Atouba – Hamburg
Appiah – Free
Fletcher – Hibs

Naylor – Sunderland
Balde – Birmingham
Riorden – Hibs
Killen – Hibs

  Henry to be re–signed by Arsenal by the end of the transfer window. The shirts sales will make it cash neutral. Tough central midfielder could well be Schweistieger – cards galour – reminders of the Viera days. Are these a wish list or rumours?? Wait till Monday!

  To the guy who said –"Can someone tell me why, with 30 million to spend, Arsene Wenger doesn't sign. ." Let me give you an answer.

Just because you have money it doesn't mean you have to go crazy and buy anything that is going around. Thank god none of you guys were running these clubs, they would have gone bust a long time back. People are suggesting the same names to Arsene everywhere – Inler, Barry, Veloso etc etc. . like as if he can take his shopping basket around and just pick players he wants.

Buying players involves a lot of other issues and money is not always the solution. Players want good weather, more play time, less bench time, nice shiny yellow boots. . you cannot please all of them all the time. Look at Spurs, they spend so much money every year but what has that got them. Same excited fans at the beginning of the year and then grumpy, sad fans at the end of the year.

I won't say Arsene knows and all that crap. I will just say that he never became one of the greatest managers in football history by fluke. He knows a lot more than you and me obviously, so lets leave him to run the team as he deems fit. Lets just enjoy the game and support the manager and the team no matter what the result. You don't get sunny days everyday, right?

Berbatov to Bayern Munich, cut price to prevent ManUre from getting him.

Veloso from Sporting for 16 mill to sit in front of the back four

Forget Huntelaar, Arse–shaving and Milito

Corluka from Man City to cover/replace Ledders

Radamel Falcao from River Plate, so as we have a partner for Bent when Pavlyuchenko is cup tied in Europe.

Falcao and Pav to be the starters in the league for the season with Bent getting a few more games than last season, but not as a first choice striker.
  Everton will sign, Obinna, Larsson for loans and frees. That leaves up around 20–25m for 1 big player and one half decent player. Hunt–5m and Moutinho 17m with 2.5m–3m add–ons.
  Was talking to peter beardsley outside st james park yesterday and he said a few names which could well be playing in black & white this season they are.

javier pedro saviola – loan
skjelbred – 6 – 7 million
timothee atouba – 2 – 3 million
kamil zayatte – 2 – 3 million

maybe a few sneaky bids for joaqine, frazier campbell, warnock.
  To the guy that says riordan is going to rangers, i also heard this rumour but i don't think it will happen as walter smith has been put off by the gers fans reaction to kenny miller joining.
Daniel cousin is attracting interest from stoke and hull.
Rangers will send chris burke and steven naismith out on loan when they return from injury to regain match fitness, probably a championship side.

I heard that anthony stokes (sunderland) will either rejoin falkirk or go to hibs on a season long loan.

p.s Rangers and Arsenal to win their respective leagues.
  Dean Ashton to sign for villa!!!!
Watch this space. . .
  Birmingham city news.

ben watson to finally join from palace for 2m,
paul mcshane to join on loan from sunderland,
james mcfadden to newcastle for 6m,
  Liverpool FC Transfer Deals before the deadline:
Players In:

Albert Riera – Espanyol – £8 million.
Rafinha – Schalke 04 – £5 million.

Players Out:
Steve Finnan – Fulham – £2 million (Replacement for Maritz Volz).
Charles Itandje – Auxerre – 1 Year Loan.

Rafinha will be the suprise signing before the deadline and will be the long term replacement to Steve Finnan
  Berbatov had a medical at Man U today(29th) and should have been on the flight to Monaco but spurs don't want to announce the deal until they complete the Pavlyuchenko deal. It should all happen on monday.
  Got it on good authority that Berbatov is the wow signing Ashley has promised the Newcastle fans. man Utd will get Henrik Larsson again.
