Any Newcastle United Rumours


30 May 2010 22:12:40
Newcastle and plymouth kissing in a tree k i s s i n g, the toon argyle love affair continues, pompey and the geordies to play pre season games at home park if new pitch is ready, very convenient for the toon army. also expect this budding romance to flourish into a full blown love affair with fraser forster on loan and plymothian ben tozer argyles
permanent full back. newcastle also have auterior motives and plan a divorce by pinching all argyles talented youngsters. long distance love affairs a nightmare. also trust me argyle will have new investment shortly. (in the navy)

Liverpool are struggling to find a suitor for the left肪ack position.Benitez has kept close tabs on serb Aleksander Kolarov, Sampdoria's Reto Ziegler and Filipe luis, but is still pondering on a decision.
Meanwhile, liverpool could instead move for Boltons Gary Cahill rather than Rangers youngster Danny Wilson. Palermo's promising centre防alf Simon Kjaer is also an option.
Yossi Benayoun could be on his way out of liverpool this summer, with CSKA moscow, chelsea, spurs and roma all interested in the israeli.Liverpool could move for valencia's Ever banega as a replacement, with Mesut Ozil and Gojko Kacar as back up options.Liverpool are also looking to finally find a left winger, as Albert riera is on his way out this summer.Simao, Arda turan and Marko Marin are all candidates.
Benitez will also be looking for a strike partner for Fernando Torres, with Villareall's Giuseppe Rossi, Mrko Pantelic, and Mamadou Niang possibilities.


30 May 2010 22:27:44
Walsall F.C as usual will have no money to spend so will look for freebies and loans i have contacts with inside the club and they tell me they looking at quite a few free players make of this what you will

They looking at 2 goalkeepers these are casper ankergen and jan budtz. Ankergen i think is a non starter budtz maybe

they looking in defence at liam chilvers, sam sodje, marcus hall and rob kozluk.

in midfield they are looking at sean thornton i hope so hes a magician) chris shuker, andy robinson, gavin mahon and simon gillet not all of these will be signed cuz of wage structure.

and up front febian brandy, jon macken, deon burton, barry conlon, paul mcveigh and adebayo akinfenwa

if any of these are signed then bright times ahead for the saddlers but as usual we will be outbid

remember you heard it here first

30 May 2010 21:36:35
To the dreaming everton fan who thinks they will get 25 million for yakubu an pienaar. Yakubu couldn't hit a barn door with a machine gun, he is worth 6million tops ! As for pienaar he is now in the last year of his contract so his value will be lower , remember owen in his las year at Liverpool he wen for 8 and is by far a better player then than pienaar is now!
I think you will get 9 million tops for pienaar as I can't see him doing anything special at the world cup
so that gives you 15 million and with the likes of cardozo an mourinho being linked with europea elite I can't see you getting them.
You will sign the following
beckford free
ledley free
Steven Taylor 8 million
vagner love 8 million
and a cm


30 May 2010 21:31:14

Liverpool are very close to signing Luiz Fernando Pereira da Silva (Fernandinho) from S縊 Paulo FC for a fee of about £2.5 million. He plays left midfield and set up 4 goals in 45 minutes on his first appearance for S縊 Paulo FC. He is a quick tricky winger who has scored 4 goals in only 19 appearance. My cousin, who lives in Brazil, saw Benitez and Fernandinho walking out of The Morumbi Stadium smiling. The deal will be done soon.


30 May 2010 21:19:22
To those who say quality players like ebanks blake won't drop to league one, i say outline a genuine project and wave a coutts chequebook in front of them, and watch adu , ebanks blake etc on home parks new state of the art pitch, semantics of business have conspired against argyle, with a new share deal agreed the future looks very bright for plymouth argyle. don't be surprised to see mayflower reopen after new planning application submitted, things constantly ticking behind the scenes with huge contracts approved. another i heard was simeon jackson of gillingham.


30 May 2010 21:19:44

Harry redknapp will definately be signing "ON" when spurs don't qualify for the champions league. Joe cole is an arsenal player 100%

Joe Cole is not an Arsenal player at all. He has already agreed to sign for Spurs. Wenger hasn't been interested in Cole at all, even if he was, Cole will still pick Spurs for a few reasons!



30 May 2010 21:24:30
To the guy who wrote this:
Steven Hunt £2.5mill Wolves are hunts preferd option and contrary to other speculation he won't even talk to Brum or Albion So that's why he's been seen at Albions training ground??

STEPHEN Hunt Hull City
Harry Kewell Free Agent
James Beattie Stoke City
Steven Reid Done Deal
Gabriel Tamas Done Deal
Pablo Ibanez Done Deal

and Graham Dorrans will NOT be leaving this summer!!


30 May 2010 21:25:23
Can u Man City fans stop makin yourselves out to be the best club in the world. David Silva is linked with Man Utd and Real Madrid and Maicon is goin to Real Madrid so why would they go to you. Money only matters if the player wants to go but if the player dosent want to go then it dosent matter how much money you have. They want to play in the champions league and because your not in the champions league these big players arnet interested theyd rather Man Utd or Real Madrid.

also to the people who think man utd have no money to spend they are wrong. it is well publicised that they have up to £95 million to spend and AF has said he wants to sign 23 big players even though they are in bad debt this dosent mean they can't spend a penny as they don't have to pay it straight away they can slowly chip away at it over an amount of years so some times you have to spend money to make money. i expect them to bring in either Di Maria or David Silva and then hopefully a decent partner for rooney, this would be Benzema and as he is unsetteld at madrid this is a big possibility. also an attacking midfielder is needed and SAF is interested in Hamsik and this is also a likely one. we will sell Tosic and Carrick with foster gone these sales will bring in near £30 million. Welbeck will go out on lone to a premiership side aswell.


30 May 2010 21:26:25
Bogdanovic will sign for Sheffield United this coming week on a free transfer.Not Daft Swansea as some imbacile stated.This is a fact.I am a football agent and i spoke to his agent.


30 May 2010 21:29:41
芳abregas is not leaving unless Barcelona pay £76million. (Fabregas's buy out clause).
訪oscienly(£6.5million) and Kjaer(£10million) will be joining to replace Gallas and Silvestre.
乏ichards(6million) or Vanderwiel(£9mil) will replace sagna who is going to Inter邦ilan.
胞den Hazard will come in but will be loaned back to Lille for more experiance and will join for the 2011/12
妨enger understands that Fabregas will only stay forlong if good talent is brought in and that is Gourcuff.
胞duardo will be leaving for Wolfsburg, he will go for £8mil. Rosicky will go to Bordaux to replace Gourcuff.
Arsenal 2010/11 line up..
Richards, Koscienly, Vermaelen, Clichy
末末末末芳abregas, Gourcuff末末末末
末末Vanpersie, Chamakh, Arshavin末末
This season Song has enough experiance to just hold his position. Just like Toure at Barcelona. And from this it means Fabregas and Gourcuff can do what ever they want when attacking, just like barcelona with Xavi and Iniesta.
Subs: Walcott, Eboue, Nasri, Diaby, Kjear, Gibbs, Ramsey.
Wilshere will be loaned back to bolton for 1 more season but he will be joined with his team卜ate Vela.

Whats this I hear of a cheeky bid from Mccarthy to bring Steven Ireland to the Molineux? This a possibility through Micks Irish connections.
Other than that the Robbie Keane hopes are dead in the water as he was trying to talk Doyle into a move away from Wolves but Trappatoni banned such talk.
A deal for Steven Fletcher is all but done with a £7million fee with Chris Iwelumo And Wayne Hennessey going the other way for season long loans.
Also Senegal Star Guirane N'Daw From Nantes.
Up the Wolves Top 10 Finish!

30 May 2010 19:51:25
Latest from Spurs.

I have been told today that the deal for Joe Cole is definately back on. I was told last week that Joe and his agent rejected the 57k a week offer from Spurs, but Daniel Levy flew out to Austria yesterday and a pre contract agreement was signed YESTERDAY for 78k a week with very generous bonuses. That means Cole has rejected an 80k offer to stay at Chelsea and a suprising 63k a week offer from Birmingham.

Also today Luka Modric has signed a new 6 year contract at Spurs worth 65k a week. New deals have been offered to Michael Dawson and Aaron Lennon.

This is evidence that plumeri will become a board member before the end of the year IT was not the best of days for Argyle chairman Sir Roy Gardner to bring his American buddy to Home Park.

Joe Plumeri is a sporting entrepreneur from New Jersey he co撲wns a couple of minor league baseball teams whose day job involves being chairman and chief executive of Willis Group Holdings, one of the world's biggest insurance brokers. Gardner is a fellow director of the firm.

Plumeri invested a modest sum £100,000 in the Devon football club last month, and on Saturday he did what Argyle's Japan肪ased director Yasuaki Kagami has never done. He turned up at Home Park to watch the Pilgrims in action.

True argyle rumours, if you read chris errington in the plymouth herald, it is 100% clear that shares are a big issue, investment will come on a big scale once shares have been transferred. I support pompey but work at hms drake, if pompey had continued with world cup bid, they like argyle would be prime for huge investment, these rumours are true, money talks mate, people are cottoning on to the plans of stadium and regeneration of surrounding area , the world of business smells money making schemes like a naval warship sniffer dog. to crack the yanks and sell god knows how many shirts, argyle are 100% talking about freddy adu. americans love plymouth all the history linking the two, argyles board want a pre season tour to america, one thing plymouth already has is a massive historical link, only uk city to celebrate thanksgiving large scale, you may not believe me mate that's fine but just watch this space.

No one other than interested parties and senior officials know what is going on at anfield, so stop claiming things that are untrue .

mascherano 30 million real Madrid / Barcelona
babel 11 million bayern Munich
degen 1.7 million bayern Leverkusen
el zhar 2 million saint ettiene
riera 7 million or p/e

giving a budget of: 78.7 million

kolarov 10 million
mata 10 million +riera
milner 25 million
Steve finnan free
Upson /kjear 7 million/13 million

Manchester United have made a bid for a player from Standard Liege. That was the bid I was talking about last week. Standard Li馮e could accept this bid as early as next week. But we shall see. Their second acquisition could be Stefan Jovetic as he can play as a supporting striker, striker and Left Wing. Rodwell, De Gea and possibly another big name could be bought next season. Like my friend said 2011 could be the big season. It is suspected that Juventus, Chelsea and Barcelona, Manchester City could be the biggest spenders this season with Madrid, and Man United along with possibly Arsenal and Liverpool in the mega spending club.


30 May 2010 18:20:02
Robert Snodgrass to join Nottingham Forest subject to a medical; Nathan Tyson to go in the opposite direction to Leeds United. Surprising transfer if you ask me.

Makoto Hasebe to join West Ham.

Gary Hooper to be swooped by Bristol City; he is seen as a capable replacement to Nicky Maynard as he is on his way to an unnamed Premier League club.


30 May 2010 18:22:31
Leeds United speculation:

Bates has refused to give Grayson any budget for transfers and he must raise money through sales. As a result Neil Kilkenny is being hawked around clubs with Leeds wanting a fee of £1.5m.

Schmeichel has a release clause in his contract meaning any club who bids over 250k for him can talk terms. Schmeichel excepted Leeds comparitively poor wages as he sees them as a chance to put himself in the shop window and his agent received a sweetener.

Attempts to lure Paul Heffernan on a free transfer have failed as Heffernan is holding out for a offer from Bristol Rovers who he sees as the more ambitious club.


30 May 2010 18:10:38

Rafael Benitez is working on bringing in Joe Cole, Raul and Sylvinho all of these players are available for free so hopefully Rafa can convince them to play at Anfield, unfortunatley it looks like Javier Mascherano will be off to Barcelona, other outs will be Yossi Benayoun to Chelsea, Diego Cavalieri to Corinthians, Ryan Babel to Hamburg, Phillipe Degen to Wigan, Mikel San Jose to athletic Bilbao, Chrisztian Nemeth to Panathaniokas and Albert Riera to Villareal, Rafa is targeting Gary Cahill and Ever Banega, I don't know the other players yet but im sure he has another 1 or 2 wingers and another striker lined up.

PLYMOUTH ARGYLE as previously stated and much maligned on thier fans site PASOTI 3 manager candidates have given a big NO for varing reasons.
Players are left in limbo and by the nature of English football went off arond the globe on hols Fallon to the world cup
Thats the same Fallon who says he wants out.
When they broke up they were not weighed or given pre season targets (unheard of at this level)
have all been critical and have wanted away or already gone.
New manager in end of next week will not be universally popular with fans or players.

Quaresma belive it or not is an option. fergie tried to bring him in befor we gt Ronaldo. I think this could be a gd signing, Fergie can make him into the world class player he was at Porto.

100% true


30 May 2010 17:08:49
Arsenal Will be going back to 442.
Wenger has 40 million to spend but that includes his wage bill. With Gallas leaving and Fabregas likely to go that will be Arsenals two top earners gone and will also free some money in the wages department.
Chamakh has been signed so no other striker will come in as Arshavin will be played up front.
A goalkeeper will be signed if 1 becomes available at the right price. This is likely to be Diego Lopez for 6m off a cash strapped Villarreal.
In defence Gary Cahill will be signed with in 2 weeks for around the 12m mark. If Sagna moves on the fee will be 16/17m as Arsenal got him for 13m and would want a profit.If he was to go to Juve that could involve Melo or Buffon going the other way.To cover the right back slot Micah Richards will be the number 1 target and if not Van Der Weil.
In midfield Arsene is likely to spend all the Fabregas fee on two players and they could be David Silva and Rafael Van Der Vaat.After the Holland Mexico game VDV said that it most be so easy playing with V.Persie every week with the runs he makes and that he make mid fielders look great. Maybe AW will use that to get him to Arsenal.Eden Hazard would be the next target after those two.Senna could also make a move to Arsenal if he was to agree to a year by year rolling contract.
Finally I have it on good authority that Liam Brady asked Joe Coles agent what his wage demands are and would he be willing to talk to Arsenal.He said Joe would be willing but his wages would probably break Arsenes wage structure.
Buffon or Lopez
Sagna(if gone Richards) Cahill Vermaelen Clichy
Nasri Song VDV Silva
V.Persie Arshavin

Almunia Eboue Campbell Walcott Senna Rosicky Chamakh

Chris Hughton HAS definetely contacted Man city about Nedum Oneuha he's a big target, and wants him even if Steven Taylor stays.

Kris Boyd will NOT be joining, but Tom Cleverly and Jack Wilshere are strong possibilities on 1 year loans.

^ All these are from a very reliable source, from him I found out about the signing of Kevin Nolan in January 2009 early

I can tell you Boyd WILL be joining Newcastle and Taylor will be staying. Nedium will join aswell . I've seen boyd outside St james park last week when I went out with friends. Birmingham signed Zigic because they lost out on boyd who has agreed a move in principle to Newcastle watch this as it will open up more over the next few days

The rumours that have been going around this summer are crazy with the likes of fernando torres and steven gerrard getting linked to any team. For a start torres has told pepe reina that hes going to stay for another season at least and his agent has said the same thing, this is because he wants to repay the fans and the club for his injuries over the past 2 seasons by winning his first trophy for the upcoming season. With benitez certain to stay in charge at anfield and the same with torres, why would gerrard want to leave when hes said time and time again that he wants the big players stay at liverpool and he loves playing along side with torres, fair enough we havent won anything in a while and rafa is an odd manager to work with but i can't see him leaving liverpool and if they were to win a trophy or two this season they will probably stay till the end of their contracts.
However mascherano due to family reasons is likely to leave to spain and he will be the only big player only leaving liverpool this summer. Riera will definatly leave probably with a deal to bring juan mata plus cash to anfield or simao of benfica to liverpool just use the useless riera as bait for any good winger will do nicely, a left back is defintaly postion that needs sorting with aurelio gone and insua so inconsistent the likes of kolorov and taiwo are on the short list for rafa. I could see rafa spending £20m or so in bringing onuha, micah richards and ireland to liverpool and with the rumour that the daily mail printed that rafa benitez has only £5m to spend is a joke, struck for cash they may be but not even the likes of bolton have £5m to spend. Also the likes of el zhar, degen, and a few other fringe players. With jovanovic and shelvey already signed a experience and good striker is needed, the list goes on for who is linked but the likes of raul, giuseppe rossi and a few others, but depends on the fee of mascherano's sale liverpool want between £30£40m
Finally lets hope the yanks sell quick i don't have a clue if anyones interested or not i don't believe what they say anymore,

Firstly can we stop all the rubbish about United being skint, the figures are all out in the open in black and white.

Yes there are interest payments and debt, and yes it is not a good situation to be in. But it is the situation and nothing is going to change in the foreseeable future.

I'd also like to point out that Smalling wasn't signed to be Vidic's replacement. He has been signed as Ferdinand's long term replacement. Evans has long been viewed as Vidic's successor. Indeed the plan was for Ferdinand/ Pique & Vidic/ Evans but Pique wanted first team football quicker than he was getting it and was sold back to Barcelona for a decent profit. Just check the comments from the manager at Maidstone who discovered Smalling before he went to Fulham, they are freely available on the internet, he says he reminds him of a young Rio.

The squad is in decent shape, lots of youth coming through, expect to see more Gibson this year. Welbeck and Cleverley will be on loan although most likely lower end Prem teams, maybe one or both to Newcastle.

And so to in's.

Keeper's nothing will happen till summer window of 2011. We all know the contenders. I think Lloris is out the picture and will move somewhere after the world cup, leaving it between Neur, Akinfeev and De Gea. Expect all 3 to be heavily scouted.

No撲ne needed to come into the defence, Smalling was all that was needed. Rafael will kick on and hopefully learned a lot from the Bayern game and hopefully Fabio can stay injury free. (Same applies to everybody else lol)

Midfield needs work, need a creative centre mid and or a wide left.

I think Joe Cole is a definite contender on a free which would leave the budget free to bring someone else in.

I think we will get priced out of the bidding for Di Maria.

David Silva i don't want at United, i think he would flop, far too lightweight, look at the kickings Ronaldo used to get and he's about 16 centimetres taller and 16 kilo's heavier. Only reason i would sign him is if we sold him a season later to Madrid at a decent profit.

Steven Defour i think is a contender though, remember Fergie's get well soon message, only time i remember him doing that was when Ruud van Nistelrooy did his knee in training and the deal got cancelled only to go through 12 months later. Defour wouldn't cost the earth and could find it easier to adapt.

Another contender is Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina, he impressed me in the group stages of the Champions League, doesn;t seem to be getting linked with a lot of clubs and could do a very good job.

In an ideal world we'd sign both Defour and Jovetic and maybe also get Joe Cole as well, pad the squad out nicely.

I wouldn't expect another striker in, we have 6. Yes Welbeck out on loan and either Diouf or Macheda out on loan as well. But Berbatov will be saying and Owen will be as well.

I think as someone else said the big summer for United will be the 2011 window.

Long post but thanks for reading. Great site Ed.


30 May 2010 16:28:30
Colchester youngster Russell Malton who is very highly rated has alot of interest from many League2 clubs with Dagenham & Redbridge as favourites to land the striker/wingers signature !
Except confirmation in next few weeks


30 May 2010 16:13:41
I know simon grayson and he told me that he has 3 million to spend and wants gary hooper 2million
paul connoly 200k, tom kennedy貿ree, nick montgomerie貿ree , danny green 300k, adam le fondre500k ans also mentioned that alan smith really wants a return to leeds but they don't want to pay big wages for him


30 May 2010 16:16:03
29 May 2010 22:50:34

Newcastle United's Shola Ameobi could be Simon grayson's next big signing after appointing young Kasper Schmeichel on Friday. Shola helped Newcastle to promotion with 11 goals in 21 games.

Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll would also boost Leeds Uniteds team probably, almost securing a Premiership spot for the 2011/2012 season.

Cardiff's Peter Whittingham may be Leeds United's other possible signing as Whittingham has said "im sick of always been second best" , (looks as if he wants a bigger club). Whittingham would be a great influence in Leeds United team as he and Snodgrass would rule the wings in matches.

I would like to point out. Premier league clubs are after Nolan and Carroll so they won't drop down a division to go to Leeds. Ameobi still has something to prove in the prem and again will not be leaving. and Whittingham has already signed for a bigger club. Newcastle. he just needs to sign the contract.

PS. Leeds are NOT big club. your a small club now. and you won't go up this year. you struggled in league 1 and the championship will be harder you'll be in the championship for a few years maybe even go back down.


30 May 2010 16:20:00

Leeds United.

A good friend of mine works at the Leeds training ground, Thorpe Arch. Expect alot of business in the next 7 days. Ken Bates has given Grayson a transfer war chest of 330k.

Grayson has tried to entice former keeper Neil Sullivan back to Elland Road as no1 to allow Schmeichel to learn the tricks of his trade from a professional. However Sullivan is happy at Doncaster and prefers the style of football Donny play.

One player on Leeds radar is Misad Bubalovic. The former Hadjuk Split player is available on a free transfer and is looking for a 4 year contract.

Also expected to sign in the next 7 days is striker Prince Moncrieffe from non league Hyde United. Following in Beckfords footsteps, Bates believes he can nick a bargain from under the noses of amongst others Rochdale and Torquay United.

Grayson has also been speaking to the agent of Billy Sharp. Sharp however would like to stay at Donny too, as he feels they are a more progressive club.

Man Utd News:

This summer will see Joe Cole join after the world cup as Capello has stated that players aren't allowed to discuss transfer during the world cup as it could distract them from it, if joe doesn't make it into the final 23 then he will move sooner. The only other player coming in will be a young Attacking Midfielder to groom into the role for the future, this will be an under 21yr player. the choices are Rene Krhin, Sotiris Ninis, Douglas Costa, Haris Vuckic one of these will sign. That will be all this summer as the squad is very good with loads of good youngsters coming up through, remember Sir Alex is trying to build his Legacy now as he knows the end is in sight.

Leaving will be: Possebon, Anderson(unfortunatly), Foster, Tosic, Cleverley, Gray, Zieler, and Cathcart. raising between 2022M.

Next summer will see alot more movement with Berbatov Owen Carrick all leaving and Van Der Sar Scholes Giggs and Neville retiring. Three players are being targetted to come in these are Rodwell 15M+Carrick, David De Gea 12M, and Takayuki Morimoto 8M. This will be Sir Alex's last year in charge(2011/2012) before he retires. The 95M that's currently put aside for Transfers will be given to the new boss although i doubt it'll be needed much with the squad he'll inherit.

My source at Madrid revealed that Jose Mourinho could attempt to keep Raul at Real for another season. And give Benzema out on loan. My source then told me that they will assess the players' progress and make a decision next season. Man United could move in for Morimoto but will continue to search the market for a striker if DIMISTAR doesn't impress. Liverpool could make a move for Benzema on loan and Altintop on a free. Chelsea have been disappointed to realise David De Gea is waiting for a bid from Man United. If Javier Mascherano leaves they will then use the money to purchase the PFA Young Player Of The Year James Milner after getting reassurance that they will recieve money from sales. Arsenal could go for Igor Akinfeev as they do have 1st choice on him they also want Sotiris Ninis and perhaps Van Der Wiel and Phil Jones and Jack Rodwell. Expect Man City to make a bid for Lahm, Maicon, Yaya Toure, Angel di Maria, Fernando Gago, David Silva and Higuain. They will attempt to get Jones and Rodwell and Milner the first week after WC. In a triple swoop. And don't rule out a move for Bonucci from Bari(i think).

J Toon, add Whittingham to that list. He IS on his way. I'm not going to talk about working here and there, but this is happening.

how do you know this ? whats your source ? when will it happen ?

how do we no you are telling the truth"

I'm pretty sure I said earlier. I'm not revealing source. It'll be ~£4m and it'll happen as soon as Whittingham gets back from his holidays. He's agreed the deal, he just needs to cross the ts and dot the is.
How do you know I'm telling the truth? Simply put, you don't. I can't force you to believe this, but I personally think you should.

Arsenal look set to hold onto fabregas , because Barcelona think that fab represents the outrageous transfer fee that wenger is demanding! This will have a negative effect , fabregas will have his mind else where, he won't play at his highest level, so his price will drop . Silly wenger !
Barcelona will instead look at to English based players, javier mascherano and andriy arshavin and then giorgio chielini ,
masch will cost 32 million arshavin will cost 16 and chirllini will be a swap for either caeceres +10 mil or chygnygrynsky

and finally man city fans , a question, you are meant to be signing all of these world stoppers , but what are you going to do with the likes of toure, lescott, Barry, Johnson, tevez, adebayor the list could go on , they will not want to sit on the bench, so what are you going to do with them? I you sell them you will lose a lot of Money !!

Jose Mourinho apparently has told Chelsea that he wants Lampard and is willing to do a deal which involves Kaka going the other way.

Mourinho has also showed interest in Steven Gerrard. Whether Gerrard would go to Madrid especially with Mourinho being the manager is another thing.

SAF will open up contract talks with Rooney after the World Cup as SAF doesn't want Rooney to go into the World Cup with this type of thing on his mind.

Rooney has stated that he doesn't want to play for anyone else except United/England at this point of his career. He sees United as the biggest club in the world and is happy there. He has family living close to him and do you really think Rooney is intelligent enough to learn to speak Spanish? (No offense Wazza!)

I think Rooney will sign a new deal at United which will see him up to summer 2015. SAF will retire in 2 years time along with Scholes, Giggs, Van Der Sar & Neville. Mourinho will then step in SAF's shoes and finally get to manage a striker that he claimed to be the best in the world in the sun yesterday.

Arsenal rumours:


Apparently offered joe cole a contract.

Wenger wants young Crewe midfielder Nick Powell.

Arsene Wenger is ready to tempt Newcastle with a £5m bid to land defender Steven Taylor. (5m is very cheap, I would be surprised if this happened)

Wenger could miss out on Wigan striker Hugo Rodallega with Martin O'Neill ready to battle to bring him to Villa Park.

Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer has played down speculation linking him with a move to the Gunners.


Barcelona will step up their £55m pursuit of Cesc Fabregas if they can offload midfielder Yaya Toure.

Hulse To Replace Beckford

They seem to be high possible rumours.

Alan smith obviously would love to come to leeds but i doubt it as i can't see us paying his wages. i hope im wrong though.

To the person who saide Becchio is off to doncaster. don't be daft . he is our 1st team striker and one of our best players. plus donny won't be able to afford him as tht seems to be the problem all the time for them

snoddgrass is not leaveing aswell . he wants to stay with leeds for a long time and loves the club.

so post Realistic rumours and not a load of crap

30 May 2010 09:01:18
Anyone who thinks Man United will sign a World Class player such as David Silva, Benzema, Modric etc is living in Cuckoo Land. Alex Ferguson has adopted the Arsene Wenger approach of buying young talent as their Finances has dried up. If Ferguson does decide to buy it will be someone like Eden Hazard but Ferguson would only Bid £8m which will be rejected straight away.

United Ins:
Smalling £10m
Hernandez £7m

No撲ne (Brown is pushing for a move At the moment but any bids will be rejected as Ferguson wants to keep him)

Chelsea are another one in for a quiet Summer. They'll concentrate again on bringing Young Players Through.

Arsene Wenger Will spend but will Stick to his policy of buying Relatively Unknown talent. After having a £4.2m rejected for Koscielny he'll up it to £6m which Lorient Will Accept. Whether or not he brings in another Centre肪ack lies with whether Sol Campbell will sign a Contract. If He leaves For Celtic Arsene will Make a Bid for Mats Hummels from Borissia Dortmund. He's the Partner of Subotic and is Often overlooked. Borissia Don't want to sell him but will Accept a bid in the Region of £13m. A Goalkeeper may be brung in. But if he does it will Be between Diego Lopez and Pyatov.

Arsenal Ins:
Chamakh free
Koscielny £6m
Pyatov £6m
Hummels £13m


30 May 2010 09:13:50
If anyone has some TRUE rumours about aston villa it would be great to hear them?

but aston villa seriously need some transfers in if they want to compete for uefa champions league.
they deffinatly need an in and out goal scoring striker: Robbie Keane, Mauro Zarate, Stevan Jovetic

then i think petrovs outstanding chapter of a career with villa is soon coming to an end and with milners non stop working ethic in the middle we need someone who can spark a bit of magic like: toni kroos, marek hamsik, jack rodwell, stephan ireland

and judging on last seasons performance i think we are need of a replacment for downing and perhaps sell him on rplacments being: Angel Di Maria, Stevan Jovetic, Simon Vukcevic

and then a definate purchase that i think we have needed for some time now is Fabiano Santacroe at right back.

30 May 2010 09:42:38
I'm afraid it is business as usual for Arsenal and Arsene, Arsene is again looking to bring in unknowns or unwanted players (unwanted by goon fans that is), he has been bidding for a defender called Koscielny (French of course) he has also been looking at Wigan's Rodellega and Charles N'Zogbia, Kevin Doyle of Wolves and even Mcgeady of Celtic so i think Arsenal fans should be preparing for another disappointing transfer window with Mr Stubborn in charge.

Players like Hazard, Gourcuff, Mexes and even Hangeland are way off the mark, i am not writing this to wind you guys up, i just cannot see Wenger changing an habit of a lifetime even if Cesc leaves, when Cesc goes i can see him letting Nasri or Ramsey take his place just to prove to Cesc that his departure was not the end of the world, its Wenger's way i think you will agree?

What do you goons think of his targets?


30 May 2010 09:46:34
Man utd:

Yaya Toure a hard defensive midfielder is got replacement for Paul Scholes united will get him around 20m
Dzeko lots of club are behind him united will gate him aroumd 20m or barbetov+10m

Liverpool News:
Have this information from a very good source Old Anfield legend (who is friends with my uncle they have a little business venture together) who still works within Anfield in hospitality:

Word is that as take over has already happened, but will not be announced until after the transfer dealings have been done The feeling at the club is that if the takeover is announced and all assume the club are now cash rich (which they will be), asking prices for players will double and offers for players will half Rafa has been given another season to prove his worth, but he will have a clause inserted in his contract (which he is apparently happy with) which says if they finish outside the top 3, he can be sacked for free !

Now to the transfer news:
Mascherano £25m Real Madrid Deal was made prior to Jose taking over Purely down to family reasons and apparently he is gutted to be leaving.
Gerrard Value of deal £25m player exchange (see below) Fall out with Rafa was massive watch the press for details when he does finally go (apparently, Rafa accused him of be racist)
Babel £8m Juve just time to go !
Plus a number of fringe players.

Albiol and Van Der Vaart p/x ref the Gerrard deal
Tevez £28m Man City (will be a last minute transfer deadline day deal)
Dawson Spurs £18m Cara recommended as his replacement
Cole Chelsea / free agent
Bent Sunderland £10m (release fee to specified clubs LFC being one of them)

There will also be a few young British players joining

The future looks very exciting !


30 May 2010 10:08:06
Liverpool News.. Liverpool will bring in at least 2 of the Man City players this season. Ideally SWP & Micha. My golf coach at Traff Cnt coaches Micha's friends and said he would prefer a move to Anfield as he would stay up in North and hopefully rebuild his career. Exciting time for the red men.Trust me they will rise again. YNWA


30 May 2010 10:09:02
Just a point to make, Barcelona have signed David Villa, and Ibrahimovic looks to be staying. They also have Bojan, Pedro, Geffren and of course Messi. They also cannot afford Fabregas, so will therefore not be signing Torres.

Mascherano wants to live in a country where Spanish is the native language, which means Real or Barcelona.

So these rumours of Torres to Barca and Masch to Chelsea can stop.




WAKE UP POOL FANS! WHAT DO YOU THINK EDITOR? {editor's note – I think it is too late for Mash, the majority of the fans seem to want him gone. Most of them realise he is just trying to get a move, I think we all know that after 3 years in the country his wife has no excuse to not be able to speak English!!}


30 May 2010 06:33:28
Just heard on radio 5 live whilst they reviewing the redtops, that joe cole has snubbed man united and spurs for a move to Arsenal on a free. Chelsea offered him 80k a week but he rejected it and prefers a move to the gunners. What an addition. Aky the cabby


30 May 2010 06:34:44
Mascherano will leave in a 2 player swap with Mata and Banega of valencia. This will happen after the world cup, mascherano wants barcelona but they are hoping on fabregas. The only thing stopping the deal is if arsenal hold out for silly money.Mascherano will get a spanish country and champions league liverpool will get two young exciting players.

Arsenal News:

GK No one sadly, but we may sign Frey in January if Almunia flops in goal. Fee could be £5M£6M

DF We are obviously going to sign a defender, Wenger even said so himself. But I think we were pretty shocked to think that Wenger will sign a £8M nobody. I want him to sign Simon Kjaer for around £10.5M. He is perfect with Vermaelen and he is only 21, so he will improve. He has a bit of experience anyway with Palmero. Should Campbell go I think Wenger will sign a young cheap CB, not Sakho though as PSG are demanding £25M. Maybe Stefan Savic for £2M. He could turn out to be a Kolo Toure signing

MF I think Wenger will give up with Gourcuff as Bordeaux won't want to sell immediatly after the whole Chamakh mess. So I think this year we could sign Hazard, and Nasri could move to the middle. A lot of Arsenal fans are saying we will loan him back, but Wenger may realise that Diaby or Denilson are not better than Nasri. Hazard will probably cost £15M + £5M add ons.

ST Chamakh!

First League game team selection 2010/2011:


Sagna Kjaer Vermaelen Clichy


Fabregas Nasri

Hazard Arshavin
Van Persie

Total spend (£25M + £5M add ons)


Mikael Silvestre
William Gallas
Sol Campbell (maybe)
Kerrea Gilbert Free
Fran Merida Free (DONE)
Tomas Rosicky £6M


Jack Wilshere
Lukasz Fabianski
Carlos Vela (Jan)

Rafael Benitez has moved to sign 32 year old Spanish veteran Raul after Real Madrid told there all time scorer they no longer required his services some nice loyalty there from Madrid. Rafael Benitez has been a long term admirer of Raul and is now going to try to convince the player to move to Merseyside as back up for the injury prone Fernando Torres. Raul has said before that he would like to play in the premier league one day so this rumour is one of the more likely and with Benitez very much cash strapped signings like Sotiris Krygiakos£1.5m, Maxi Rodriguez£1.5m, Jovanovic貿ree, Raul貿ree and if he can pull it off Joe Cole貿ree could be the making of Rafa who knows but we have seen one of his free transfers go very wrong every Liverpool fan will remeber even if they want to forget the name Andriy Voronin not that im compairing Raul just saying, Raul is undoubtedly a class act but I feel he may be a year or two late to make any real impact in the premier league.

good luck with that rafa, as a liverpool fan i would be delighted if this was the team but somehow i don't see it happening unless new owners come in and give rafa the money he wants or a massive clearout happens with the likes of benni and mascha leaving

one thing i will say is get ngog as far away from livepool as possible, no way is he good enough

Ok, lets get one thing clear Yaya Toure is NOT going to Arsenal. Cesc is NOT going to Barcelona in any deal other that one that gives Arsenal true value, so forget 30 million it just won't happen. The truth is it is looking more likely that he will stay than go at this point in time. For someone to say Arsenal's spending is over is rubbish, with certain players yet to commit to Arsenal that can't be the case at this time. Plus Arsene has already stated in public he will add cover in defence, an area which could lose 3 players expect to see 2 players brought in. Eden Hazard remains a target, though recent talk has brought Hatem Ben Arfa in to the frame, Arsene feels he could have an impact similar to Marc Overmars but we will see. Finally a goalkeeper will be added though i doubt it will be a young player as Arsene feels we are close to producing a world class keeper of our own.

Are you people stupid or what? the reason jose mourinho says he loves to coach rooney is because he is pleading for the manchester united job not rooney at madrid.

anway onto some rumours

Man Utd in
Max 2 more players. and these players won't be players they have been linked with, it will be really suprising. but one of them could be jovitc (spelling) of fiorentina.


30 May 2010 00:39:18
Ive been told by a very reliable source who i cannot name that birmingham city are targeting 6 signings for the summer they are after 2 strikers 2 midfielders a defender and another keeper these are reportedly going to be;
kris boyd
bobby zamora
darren fletcher
stephan hunt
paul konchesky
and david james
also on there way out will be ridgewell o'connor bent mcsheffery this should bring in around 47 mil


30 May 2010 00:58:03
Just to set things right for LEEDS

snoddy going nowhere
kisnorbo going nowhere
kilkenny going nowhere
becchio going nowhere

leeds get promoted yet some people still think we'll lose our best players.interesting logic there

Anyway the done deals so far for leeds are kasper in on the 1st july, and of course beckfords off to everton most likely after his contract was cancelled, Hopefully Bates will give King Simon some cash to get a replacement striker in i expect other signings to be loans or frees (or a minimal transfer fee)

Rumours I've heard (not ALL signing obviously);


Montgomery looks nailed on
Sharp i sincerely hope not, donny can have him
Geary likewise
Smith Doubtful, wages are high (but id love to have him back)
Lowry loan, pretty certain this will happen
Watt loan, depending on whether wenger will let us have him
Hooper loads of rumours flying about, i believe leeds to have the best chance as long as the fee is reasonable (probs between 1 and 1.5 mil)
Collins on a permanent deal, he wants to join and i think this will be happening as we need a CB to partner paddy, probs between 400 and 600k
Doyle permanent deal likely after a pretty good showing last season (no idea about price though)
Maynard Really rate the guy but unlikely as he is well settled at bristol and would cost a pretty penny as well
Tyson Again rate him but unlikely, forest did well this season, no real reason for him to leave
Paynter A real possibility following swindons miss in the playoffs, some sources even saying a contract was in place before hand (i doubt that) but it looks like he could be on his way to ER
Jason Roberts wages are a problem plus dropping a league
Ebanks Blake Direct replacement for beckford, guaranteed first team football, it could happen, depends if wolves would let him go
Harte not a chance in hell im afraid, too old and just not good enough anymore
Ameobi no chance, newcastle will keep hold for another season at least
Vukic or Vrkic (spelling) loan with a view to a permanent deal, few championship clubs looking including leicester and Ipswich I believe
Cyril Thereux (again spelling SORRY) From Nantes looks to be a deal pretty nailed on price of about 50k
Mullholland I think that's his name from northallerton town, winger, this is shady not heard much but it was rumoured
Koren Would be a great signing, wages are a problem, plus i reckon he could easily get into a team in the premiership but fingers crossed, he's on a free as well which would please Bates.

Kandol looks like charlton want him, don't think he was given a fair chance at leeds
Grella Loan league 1 club, dunno where though
Michalik Could go abroad, chances are he'll go relatively cheaply to one of either QPR, Charlton, Huddersfield or maybe Blades (due to the fact they literally have no defence, but i doubt that will go through)
Sheehan Swindon..i would literally put my life savings on that
Somma Loaned out again
Ankergren Loads of League 1 interest, most likely he will head back to denmark
Robinson again i think he's been unlucky, will be a good signing for Tranmere (i would say 80% likely to happen)
Rui Marques League 1 again i think, don't know where though
White Loaned to a league one team (cant see it myself, nailed on to be second choice left back next season plus a left mid choice as well)

There are others but i didn't put them up as we aren't playing consoles now FFS, tried to be realistic and fair for a change

lets hope for another successful season!

Snoddy to Forest; £2 million :'(

Sad but true


30 May 2010 01:18:09
Fabregas will not be leaving Arsenal for Barcalona, he will be staying for at least 2 more seasons. Wenger doesn't want to waste money on a keeper so his trusting Almunia for one more season. Szczesny will be the NO.1 Next year. Wenger will get Eden Hazard but will probably loan him back to Lille for the season. Sagna will be leaving for InteMilan cuz Maicon will be following Mourinho to Real Madrid. Vanderwiel would come in to replace Sagna and would cost £9million. Since Gallas, Silvestre, Senderous and maybe Campbell are all leaving. 2 CBs will be coming in. Koscienly will be joining for £6.5million, Kjaer is £10million so next season Our CBs will be Vermaelen, Kjaer, Koscienly and Djourou. The team next year will be..
Vanderwiel, Kjaer, Vermaelen, Clichy
末末末末末Fabregas, Diaby末末末末
末坊anpersie, Chamakh, Arshavin末
Subs: Walcott, Hazard, Nasri, Ramsey, Gibbs, Flapyanski, Koscielny.

Some Leeds fans are in real danger of making themselves look silly on here. Not everything you read about your players possibly leaving is written deliberatley to wind you up you know!

It really shouldnt be that difficult to see why a player from a newly promoted Championship side, regardless of your history, would be interested in signing for the team that finished 3rd in the Championship last year. If it is then maybe some winding in of the necks needs to be done.

I'm a Forest fan, and our fans are guilty of the same arrogance on occasion, but I can tell you honestly that both clubs are in discussion over this Tyson plus cash swap deal, although neither player has been allowed to talk to the other club yet, the deal is proceeding on the grounds that BOTH players are interested in the deal, Snodgrass because he wants to be challenging for promotion this season rather than consolidating, whilst Tyson is eager to play in his natural striker position, which he doesn't for us.

Your opinions of his value may well be different from the £600k plus Tyson that someone in the media has suggested because it's my understanding nothings been decided and it could well be higher or lower, depends on how highly Grayson rates Tyson as a striker I suppose. Forest are EXTREMELY confident of securing the deal, I couldn't say how keen Leeds are to carry on negotiaitons but they show no signs of wavering yet.

This one COULD VERY WELL happen, dismiss it if you like but it is on the cards and far more likely than someof the rumours flying about.

J Toon, add Whittingham to that list. He IS on his way. I'm not going to talk about working here and there, but this is happening.

how do you know this ? whats your source ? when will it happen ?

how do we no you are telling the truth"

I'm pretty sure I said earlier. I'm not revealing source. It'll be ~£4m and it'll happen as soon as Whittingham gets back from his holidays. He's agreed the deal, he just needs to cross the ts and dot the is.
How do you know I'm telling the truth? Simply put, you don't. I can't force you to believe this, but I personally think you should.

Out: Yak
In: Onouma
Defour or Ben Arfa and or Moutinho
Also a new striker as well as Beckford


30 May 2010 00:21:25
Why do my fellow Foxes fans have to churn utter tosh in with the realistic possibilities?

Observe: Snodgrass to Leicester for £1m? Snodgrass is a proud Leeds man and is also likely to be a big part of Leeds United for some time. So they won't let him go for that chump change.
Robert Pires to Leicester? XD Well, 10/10 for originality..

Don't get me wrong I'd personally love to see these signings happen but they WON'T.

I read that we are chasing Lloyd Sam from Charlton a couple of weeks ago on is there any further TRUE news on this one?

29 May 2010 23:17:09
These are just my own thoughts as I don't have a cousin who bakes cakes in the kitchen's of any football clubs.

Kris Boyd will leave Rangers to the EPL
Alan Smith with join Rangers (he is a fan of the club)

Kirk Broadfoot will join Blackpool
Danny Wilson will leave, most likely to Liverpool
Bougy will leave Spanish club
Goodwillie to join Rangers
McArthur to join Rangers from Hamilton
I also expect at least one loan deal at Ibrox.

Ellis WILL take 92% control of Rangers before July.

To the people that post figures of 40m etc. these prices are only for the Ronaldo's of this world (truly world class players) not for the likes of James Milner etc.
The likes of Arsenal very very rarely pay over 10m for a player so why continue to say that they will spend millions that Wenger continually refuses to pay.

To the Celtic fans who post that Martin O'Neil will be back at parkhead, not to be disrespectful but stop living in the past, it won't happen. He wouldn't come back to Scottish football, he is doing well with Aston Villa and he & HIS FAMILY are happier down south. Neil Lennon will in my opinion get the Celtic job with a "father figure" helping him from upstairs.

I also laugh when I see rumours stating that this player will be swapped for that player, how many transfers involve a swap deal?? Come on people, get a grip of reality and at least put some thought and credibility into your rumours..


29 May 2010 23:26:55
Now that Swindon are staying in League 1, Charlie Austin is going to be hot property for Premiership and Championship clubs.

His most likeliest destination is Nottingham Forest, after Stuart Pearce recommended them highly to him. Stuart lives in Wiltshire and has kept tabs on the former Poole striker.

Charlie would move if Forest offered at least £2m. Forest would offer £1.5m upfront and pay the rest later, providing that they can offload Rob Earnshaw (Cardiff want him and Bellamy upfront next season, and would pay the price quoted by Forest).

Paynter is off to Leeds, but most of the squad will stay put. Hopefully Danny Ward will come back and Simon Ferry will consider a permanent deal, and we're also after Cillian Sheridan, Steve Smith (Poole), Bauza from Swansea and Leigh Griffiths and Mickael Antoine砲urier from Dundee.

Other news: Ross McCormack to join Leeds.

Can anyone shed any light on when celtic will be anouncing who the new manager will be. i want lennon for the job but the thought of MON getting the job has my pulse racing


29 May 2010 23:32:32
Man City to come third next season behind Chelsea and Arsenal, but more importantly ahead of United!

Their team will be:

Given / Hart

Richards Boateng Luiz Vargas

David Silva Barry Milner

Higuain Dzeko Vucinic

Once they are in the champions league expect bids for huge players. Richards could be sold but I cannot think of a replacement for him as Maicon has snubbed City, and I don't think any other RB's have been linked. If Hart does not get first team football he will demand a transfer but he may not go to Arsenal as Wenger wants to make Szczenszy No.1 in a couple of years.

Estimated Spend on all these players: £160M.

LUFC assorted rumours:

Hulse from Derby
Tyson from Nottm Forest
Alan Lee from Palace

Snodgrass to Nottm Forest (involved in a swap deal with Tyson)
Beckford to Everton
Becchio to Donny

I'm not sure whether we should stick or twist, as it's 3 proven championship players for another 3 players of similar quality. we've been in that dreadful league for three years, can't we aim higher?


29 May 2010 22:50:34

Newcastle United's Shola Ameobi could be Simon grayson's next big signing after appointing young Kasper Schmeichel on Friday. Shola helped Newcastle to promotion with 11 goals in 21 games.

Kevin Nolan and Andy Carroll would also boost Leeds Uniteds team probably, almost securing a Premiership spot for the 2011/2012 season.

Cardiff's Peter Whittingham may be Leeds United's other possible signing as Whittingham has said "im sick of always been second best" , (looks as if he wants a bigger club). Whittingham would be a great influence in Leeds United team as he and Snodgrass would rule the wings in matches.

Why have argyle and pompey not appointed yet any clues, heard that ryan harley of exeter was sailing into plymouth, along with freddy adu, also jason koumas interests both pompey and argyle, sadly looks like pompey are obviously right in it, but plymouth from what i hear are hitting the jackpot, just look up joe plumeri, chris dawson both investing heavily.pompey should have pushed on with world cup bid, lucky for plymouth they did, and are about to reap the financial rewards.
