Rangers Rumours

Miller (Sadly, although his agent claims no contact has been made, and lets hope that continues)

Lafferty (Wattie wants more bears in the squad)

Lovenkrands (To play through the middle)

Klasnic (Done deal on a bosman)

Dailly (One year deal, not signed but verbally agreed)

Davis (Swap with Cousin)

Gow and Hemdani told to find new clubs, those are the only two who are defo to go for now but expect more to follow.

Also expect a few surprise signings that have not surfaced yet on here or in the media.


  Ibrahimovic will be at manu next season, as will micha Richards, no player will turn downt he chance to work with United considering the current pedigree of the squad. ben Foster will get his chance as United number 1 as Fergie looks to find the next generation of goal keepers.


D. Alves

M. Richards

J. Hart


K. J. Huntelaar

Also my mate who works at Newcastle's training ground told me last night that Samuel Eto'o and arshavin along with Dean Ashton have all been to the training ground and could sign within the next week or two. Keep an eye on these.

  Liverpool fans need to get realistic.

There will be only one big signing this season as Rafa has to comply with the restrictions due to boardroom antics.

They will get either Barry (9 million+ Carson) or Bentley (7 million+ Pennant) Not Both. Rafa will have to keep the spending slim this year.

Degen (Done), Dossena (Done). He will also make a cheeky (classic Rafa) bid for a proven goalscorer in the prem, Santa Cruz (If Hughes and Bentley goes) or he will go for a proven hitman from abroard (Milito).

Then there will be one winger to go on top of the unknown signings:

Most likely N'Zogbia (swap with Risse) or Mancici, Maxwell (due to the impending HLEB) no more than £6 million shall be spent on this person.

Unfortunatly this will not be enough to bring the title back to Anfield, but one can dream.

LFC fan #43197

  Emana of toulouse to sign for NUfc for around 5–6 million. also Newcastle also still in the Hunt for gomis of st. etienne. expect a few exits such as n'zogbia, ameobi, smith, Duff, Emre and maybe given and owen. more news to follow.

  Rangers possibilities


Kenny Miller

Mark Reynolds

Kyle Lafferty

Steve Davis (permanent)


Daniel Cousin (Fulham)

Thomas Buffel (Free)

Brahim Hemdani

Christian Dailly

Alan Gow

  Rangers interested in Stilyan Petrov of Aston Villa. Villa have told Rangers to cough up £4.5 million for the player if they wish to sign the former Celtic midfielder. Despite this Petrov IS interested in returning to Scotland to play for the other half of the Old Firm. This is the only former Celtic to sign for Rangers this Summer.

Rangers also looking at Lafferty (£5 million too high however) Alan Smith and Danny Shittu. Rumours regarding Peter Lovenkrands are not founded as the player is moving to another German side for around £1 million.

Cuellar, McGregor and Boyd all remaining at Rangers but it is the end of the road for Hemdani, Gow, Buffel and Cousin.

Rangers will try and secure Davis wiht Cousin and £1 million in cash.

Remember where. Graybo Henderson 29/05

  Hull City to buy:

Kevin Nolan–5 mill

Jobi McAnuff–2.25 mill

Frasier Campbell–3.5 mill

  SAfc rumours

ins: jonny evans –5 mill

jimmy briand – (seen at stadium) 10–12 mill

bullard – 6 mill

dunne – 6 mill

fortune – free

Sinclair– 2 mill

zarate – loan and 5 mill

  My mates grandad is a cab driver and this mate of mine has said his grandad took Simon Grayson to Blackpool airport. Hes flying down to the midlands to talk to Milan Mandaric about the Leicester joband seemed quite excited about it

  Patrik Berger Has Signed A 2Year–Deal With SPARTA PRAGUE.

Hull To Sign Craig Fagan From DERBY For 750,000.

Hull To Sign Frazier Campbell From MAN UNITED For £3 million.

Hull To Sign Ivan Campo On A Free After Being Released By Bolton.

  I've heard that Stoke are close to signing Villa's Marlon Harewood and are said to be chasing Reading defender Sonko.

Also, Stoke are looking to add a new stopper to their ranks. Simonsen is likely to stay as number 2, Carlo Nash, Marton Fulop and Mark Bunn are the front runners.


  Rangers are on the verge of a triple signing. Kyle Lafferty, Kenny Miller and Jay McEveley will all join imminently, for a combined total of nearly £8 million.

Lee Wilkie has been identified as the replacement for the outgoing Carlos Cuellar, with Titus Bramble also on the radar.

  Michael Misfud will be signing for Forest, Coventry have accepted an offer, the deal should be done by next week.

  Firstly lets sort this "Peter Crouch is leaving Liverpool for £10 million plus" fiasco. It's not going to happen Liverpool fans. Crouch has only one year left on his contract and is therefore only 6 months away from being able to negotiate a Bosman free transfer. So for Liverpool to demand a fee that high is Rafa doing an Aston Villa and over inflating the prices in order to achieve the best possible capital on a player who wants out. Crouch even said He would sit on the bench for a year in protest of the fee, because he knows he's not worth £15 million. Defoe signed for Pompey when he had 18 months left on his contract in January for £7.5 million, he's two years younger and scores just as many goals. So under the current market a similar fee is more likely. I still expect him to join Pompey but any deal will be in the last week or so of the window unless Liverpool take the cut price fee now. Pompey also enquiring about Diane from Paris Saint Germain, Govou from Lyon, Haynes from Ipswich, Kaboul from Tottenham. DIARRA and KRANJCAR are going nowhere this Summer. Oh and for the record there is probably only one proper swap deal every transfer window, so how come Mills of swap deals are suddenly happening as people are reporting? Nonsense. NOVA7

  To who ever posted this fact "Newcastle will sign Eto'o 100 percent true he has already agreed a contract worth £90,000 a week. " Obviously you did not hear that a stumbling block of his deal to Tottenham was that they could only offer 150K/week in wages and no Champions league football, odd that 90K/week in sunny Newcastle seemed to do the trick? Dream on.

  First time leaving a rumour on this site but this bit of news I have just been told has to be shared

Rangers Ins: Riise – Liverpool, Reynolds – Motherwell, Miller – Derby ( medical next week ) Greening – West Bromwich, Shittu –Watford

Rangers outs: Hemdani, Gow, Weir, Buffel

  Ronaldo will not leave Man United because he loves playing there also because Fergie is staying. Could be getting Joe Lewis from Peterborough (originally from Norwich) got good chance as Fergie's son is the manager of posh also Alves is a big possibility.

  Ive heard that Man United youngster johnny evans is a definite 4 ncfc as a season long loan. Roeder has also been quoted saying that he will do his utmost to sign Blackpool duo k gorks and w hoolahan for a total of £1 million. m gilks is also looking for move away from Carrow rd because of lack of games.

  Ashton– Tottenham (Bent + £ £5 million)

Kewell to the Hammers (Free)

Capel to Tottenham (£12 million)

Drogba to FC Barcelona in exchange for Eto'o

  + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

I have heard Derby will make a triple man swoop for Charlton's key players.

Darren Ambrose, Jerome Thomas and Zheng Zhi will all make there moves to Derby in the next two weeks after an £7 million pound bid was accepted for the three players. if one players does not want to move however Derby have said they will work out a price for the players that will want to move.

Look out for this as I know Adam Pearson personally

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

  Liverpool FC – I work for a captive facility in the Cayman Islands who collate and distribute capital funds for a large national investment company based in the middle east

Our captive is being used as a vehicle to bring the capital together for them to formally bid and takeover the club within the month – Fact.

Because of the rise in oil prices, they are willing to increase their offer slightly, as well as make a full and instant investment into the stadium build. This together with the hefty transfer funds they will be giving the manager will all be used a tax shield on the increased profits they are making through the hike in oil prices and speculation

  Ex Juve star Vincent Pericard will be leaving Stoke to return to Italy this Summer. Lazio, Torino and Udinese are rumoured to be showing an interest.

  Liverpool will offer for barry '16 million' after Alonso has gone to Juve (12 million), if Rafa cannot get Barry he will offer for Cana of Marseille (11 million) he will also try buy maxwell of Inter if they can sell risse, Pennant and Itandje (all for £9 million)

  Heard from a reliable source within Villa Park that Barry is now 85 percent certain to stay. Martin O'Neill has shown him an impressive list of transfer targets to convince him. Barry is just waiting to see one or two of the targets joint, then he will commit fully and sign a new contract. The signings are expected within the next week, hence the delay and the excuse of England duty. The targets include:

– Huntelaar

– Van der Vaart

– Podolski

– Van Buyten

– Joe Hart

– Bentley

– Johnson

– Pennant


  Office talk;

mark Hughes will not be leaving Blackburn.

David Bentley will join Tottenham.

samir Nasri will join Arsenal.

dani Alves to Man United we posted this three months ago.

micah Richards will seriously think over a move to Man United

j. Ramos will return from Spain with three major Spanish player's although whether they will break the news before or after the Europeans will decide upon club and player.

it will be hart or mcgregor for Tottenham next season?

arshavin Everton was his destination but the player seems to have had his head turned by four other Premiership sides.

Man United will buy and then loan back Joe Lewis from Peterborough on the say so of Fergie jnr.

Sunderland Roy Keane is having discussions with rvn to end his career at Sunderland

within the next week or so Tottenham will tie up the deals for jonny howson and Aaron ramsey (as revealed by us some three months ago)

Chelsea will buy big in July when the new manager has bedded in.

Frank Lampard will listen to the new manager before contemplating a move away from Stamford bridge.

Newcastle are to date strugggling to attract major player's and may well buy "two week wonders" players who have had good European's

major spenders



Man United





  PFC would sell Nugent for half that price, but you think they are going to loan Everton Defoe. Why?

Expect PFC to land Crouch, Traore, Bridge or Shorey at LB and Mensah as one of what would be an amazing trio with Sol and Sylvain. But PFC then only to be reacting to squad players who move out. Possible exception a new winger on the Sarf coast. Could be the spiderman could be anyone, plenty of irons in the fire I believe.

  Heres some real Rangers rumours:

Boyd will definatley be staying, Kyle Lafferty will be brought in to partner Boyd – Not Miller. Smith will release Weir, and unfortunately keep Dailly as a back up for next season. I know Smith has his eye on a strong centre back to partner Cuellar, who is also staying (sorry Celtic), most likely Webster, or possibly Tomas Ujilaisi from Fiorentina, or Naldo, from Werder Bremen. Also expect Klasnic to sign on a free.

  Almost 16 months after George Gillett and Tom Hicks walked into Liverpool Football Club promising to have “a spade in the ground within 60 days”, instead the only construction involving Liverpool FC involves the opening of a brand new megastore in the new Liverpool One shopping centre.

The new shop, the biggest in Europe, is once again evidence of where the American owners' priorities lie. If their promises about the new stadium had been met we'd have been seeing photos of the new stadium on Stanley Park being constructed, instead we've seen three proposed plans, lots of wasted money on planning, embarrassing backtracking on one design, cost–cutting to another design, and no further along with planning for the increased capacity. Rather than the new stadium being well on it is way to be being built, instead we are left still hearing about talks of groundshares with Everton.

Fans group SOS (Spirit of Shankly) have been urging Liverpool fans not to purchase official club merchandise for as long as Hicks and Gillett are at the helm. They have placed debt onto our football club and now expect us to repay that debt for them, against their promises and our wishes. SOS today released the following statement on the day Liverpool's new megastore was opened:

“It's not a badge, it is a family crest. Nothing is impossible. ”

This is LFC's Marketing Blurb…

“It's not a badge, it is a family crest. Nothing is impossible. ” Adidas Poster.

“It's set to be a paradise for Liverpool fans – the biggest official club shop anywhere in Europe. ”

A paradise for Liverpool supporters. A veritable utopia for us all.

Whatever the marketing blurb says we know that paradise is not a place where Man United are league and European Champions and look like investing significantly this Summer from a position of strength. We know paradise is not inertia; two owners desperate to wring every last penny over their abortive eighteen months in charge of the football club. We know paradise is not being lied to again and again. It is not Rick Parry.

It is not David Moores. This is not paradise but, well, nothing is impossible.

Supporting this football club is not buying into a franchise; it is committing yourself to shared values and aspirations. It's a necessity of modern football that this collective identity is taken and sold back to us. However that does not mean we should accept it when those shared values and aspirations are not simply being ignored but are being ridden roughshod over by those who stand to gain from our support.

We've asked you to withhold that support wherever possible and we ask you to do so again. We've asked you to spread this word around and we ask you to do so again. We've asked each and every one of you to consider every pound that goes into the football club as being a pound which goes towards us paying off a debt which is not ours, which has not been instituted for the benefit of the football club but for the two greedy individuals who hold our potential back, and work out whether or not that pound is worth spending.

The fight has dragged on but that does not make it any less worth fighting and it does not make it any less urgent. Every day that passes damages our club and we are looking for new fronts to open, to re–emphasise there is no custodianship here, no integrity, no honesty, no dignity. Nothing that makes LFC fans proud.

Next week we are hoping to start sending membership packs out, we are hoping to launch the online membership. Within our membership packs is a badge. The badge we send out is not just a badge, is not a family crest but it is a simple statement – that the wearer will not accept our shared values being destroyed, that the wearer will fight against this now, and will ensure that after this fight has been won the next custodians will be held to account.

We know nothing is impossible; that is why we are here: an organisation created from the ground up, energised by Liverpool supporters who will not watch what they believe in be eroded by lies and ongoing incompetence. A democratic organisation which has and will continue to speak for the collective, speak for the shared values and aspirations and will speak out as the erosion takes place. We still need your energy and your support; we shall always need it if we are to fulfil what we said we would. We can only come together and hold the club to account for years to come if we do stand together as a massed force of Liverpool supporters.

Paradise is not a shop. It's being one red in a crowd, urging this football club towards success.

Spirit Of Shankly.
