Preston interested in Lutons Keith Keane(20)(6)RubbishKeano IS leaving Luton.


29 May 2012 23:09:59
Graham westley of Preston set to unveil signing of Tomasz Cywka.(13)(8)As they are becoming restless in the Transfer Market , and their unrivalled pursuit for talent continues , The F.A. have given P.N.E. first option on The Football League pool of talent !! .PNE are doing as I suggested they would at the end of last season cut hard, cut deep and replace players that are not willing or able to participate in the challenge ahead. This model of squad rebuilding has a president in last years champions Charlton (which is my club). PNE would otherwise face financial instability and infighting as we have already seen.

Westley took Stevenage from obscurity to last seasons league1 playoffs (at least the team he constructed did). He is not the most popular of personalities at PNE I understand but success will bring that.

Good team building and a good start to the season will be required but, given that momentum and patience by the clubs fans, maybe will see a promotion. I back them at least. Good luck PNEPNE are signing players who are all from the lower leagues & available on FREE's or call me cold....but any player worth his wage isnt going to be available for £0.......Westley managed to get a non-league team to League 1......and thats where they will stay....if anyone watched the play off between Stevenage & Sheffield Utd will understand the football at this level was shocking. Buying a whole new team doesnt mean your going to win anything....just wait till these average players get on the pitch.....!Amoo-liverpool, holmes-southampton, monakana-arsenal, wright-ipswich, laird-very good signing, captain and player of the year at tranmere. Not all lower league rubbish. Just because a player is out of contract does not make him poor! Most of PNE's signings previous /current clubs were desperate to keep them. I for one am growing more confident for next season after a god-awful one. And thank-you to the Charlton fan above!Westley maybe isnt everyones cup of tea but he is a leader and knows how to bond a team. To say the league one play off was bad is naive, Stevenage had a good team of fit pros who played together. Thats all Westley will be trying to build at PNE as last season we were carp to say the least. Anyone in management of ANY team knows attitude is paramount and the majority of last players didn't have any. You cant knock waht Ridsdale and Westley are buliding in any way. If we get into the playoffs next season PNE fans will be delighted.We've signed 11 players all of which have been from the prem, championship and the rest from league one so dont no how that one works out mate!"PNE are signing players who are all from the lower leagues & available on FREE's or call me cold....but any player worth his wage isnt going to be available for £0.......Westley managed to get a non-league team to League 1......and thats where they will stay....if anyone watched the play off between Stevenage & Sheffield Utd will understand the football at this level was shocking. Buying a whole new team doesnt mean your going to win anything....just wait till these average players get on the pitch.....!"

Of the 24 players Charlton signed last term only four came for a fee.

Peterborough winger George Boyd to sign for Leicester City for a fee which could rise to £1m depending on if Leicester get promoted(10)(25)Absolute rubbish. Boyd is avaliable on a free this summer so why would Leicester buy him?You obviously have no idea what youre talking about he has one more year on his contract, posh have a policy that if a player has one year left they get put on transfer list until they sort out a new contractThink you will find that boyd has a year left on his contract so he will not go on a free.On a free..... Lmfao get your facts right! He has one year remaining on his contract, if players don't sign a new one, club policy is to transfer list them. Posh expecting in the region of a millionHe has 1 year left on his contract so is not available on a freeNot till the following summerSince when has Boyd been available on a free this summer. He's got 1 year left on his contract so how do you work that one out. Lol. They will need to pay more than just 1mil for him too.This is difficult to believe. He doesn't play for hull!Cos he's not on a free till end of next seasonBoyd has a year left on his contractBoyd has got a year left on his contract .please do your researchAbsolute rubbish! Boyd has a year left on his contract! Why would Leicester, buy him? Probably because you have more money than sense and secondly he is a good player. Anyway £1m, would not be enough, so this rumour is probably bcks in the first place!George Boyd has one year left on his contract - he would not extend it,that is why Posh have decided to sell whilst they can command a fee. It is the same scenario with paul Taylor. Fergie has said that unless the fees offered are at level Posh seeking both will be at Posh next seasonIt aint gonna happen 1mil is to low fry wont accept it and leicester would be willing to pay more as they have load of money40percent of any fee goes to Stevenage!


29 May 2012 22:59:20
Middlesbrough reportedly make the first move for Leeds striker Ross McCormack for a cut price £1.25 million(9)(30) 

Can't see any major transfer fees being spent not until we have offloaded a few and know where we will be at wage wise.I'm sorry, cut-price from what? Leeds signed him for 400k plus add-ons. We would turn a profit.
wallyWe still wouldn't let him go cheap, he was our leading goal scorer last season?Who says theres an embargo.??You did.And if he goes anywhere it will be premiership, not crappy boroWe should have signed him before leeds did. he's a good player but id try n get rid of mcdonald (cos ov his wages) n jutkiewicz (cos he's rubbish) n then bid for himHe is not good enough for premiership average championship sticker at best and when was the last time Leeds finished above crappy boro?? Maybe about 10 years ago maybe!! He would do well to be at a well run family club with excellent facilities!Try the season before last when we finished 7thJutkiewicz rubbish? Give the lad a chance, scored goals at Coventry and created his fair share of chances at Boro. I don't see him as a top goalscorer anyway, someone for us to play off and hopefully with a few goalscoring midfielders/wide players brought in around him those threats can be utilised abit more.Lol, yep, season before last boro muppet, if mcormack has no ambition let him go to boro , or cardiff .Lets see what jutkiewicz does this year. fair enough our midfield was crap last year and he didn't get the service hope he proves me wrong n bangs in the goals.Silly putting he would like excellent training facility's at boro when he trains at 1 of the best traing facility's in the country already.Oh yeah forgot about that season! That was the one where we had strachan in charge, bottom of the table then ended up 6 points off the play offs in 10th

Derby County have made Moves for

Michael Jacobs
Danny Swanson
Johnny Russell
Joe Mattock
Krystian Pearce
Ashley Westwood

A Fee has already been agreed
between Valerenga Fc and Derby
this was done 1 week ago and
will be confirmed the Day before
the transfer window opens.Nigel
wanted to suprise the fans with
Havard Nielsen and Fegor ogude
as Derby under clough normally
target English lower leagues this
is Different.The fee is paid over 18
months thats all i could be told so
i dont know how much.

But I can say that Norwich are not
Getting Fegor ogude so who ever
made that up looks a bit of a fool
seeing as Contract agreement between
the clubs are been signed.

The Information is all From Andy Garner
who 3 weeks ago had joined Derbys
scout in Norway to start a deal.(3)(18)Where exactly did you hear this ?These rumours saying Derby will sign Svensson Ogude and Nielsen are utter utter BS spawned by some deluded Derby fan

These players are bigger and better than Derby CountyNice, got a link? Any proof?You, the same guy, says we're gettingg Ogude ever single say. But it never happens. Please stop lying.Derby county is interested aslo in nielsen, a striker from ValarengaAndy Garner had told a Derby fan during picking up his kids from school.
He told him that he had been on
a work holiday to Norway.Thats how this whole rumour started.


29 May 2012 22:57:18
To the norwich fan that posted a long list of players that we are going to sign. I dont no who was most daft u or the pra# who said we would not spend 20 quid let alone 20 mill.. u are right we do have 2omill to spend on players. But players like hooper will earn or expect 30grand aweek thats out of our range, thats why naughton wont be staying unless he signs new contract at spurs then he is loaned back to us Ncfc matt



29 May 2012 22:57:08
Ex Brighton star jake Robinson is to join Crawley town on a 2 year deal.(11)(12) 

Spoken to guy himself, don't think this is happening!


29 May 2012 22:55:45
I have heard on good authority that Brighton are to sign Owen Hargreaves on a pay as you play basis.(8)(25)Will the one game he would play really be worth even signing him?Too injury plagued,no way Gus would consider him.Well as good as he is Gus doesn't mind signing injury prone players, wouldn't put it past him signingHargreaves is too good for Brighton.Hargreaves to good for Brighton? Have a day off. Get in the real world pal. In his day probably. You obviously do not follow football. You are typically judging him from about 8 years ago and therefore going by his name and not his ability....which for the past 4 years there hasnt been any as he has been injured for most of it. And a Championship team would be an ideal move. Too good - patheic comment. Thats like Gordon Banks coming out of retirment and you saying 'hes to good' as youve judged him from his ability 30+ years ago.Like Vicente?Anyone who doubts the OBVIOUS abilitys of a pure class act like VICENTE must know very little about our great game.

A bit of news from Stoke today

Tony Pulis has conceded defeat in Robert Huth staying at the club. The player will decide in the coming few weeks on which of 3 clubs he will join. Germany seems to be his preferred choice. Stoke blocked a requested move in August which also meant the player temporarily losing his place. Stoke will cash cash in before his contract expires.

Kenwyne Jones is interesting a club in Turkey believed to be Fenerbache

Ricardo Fuller has held talks with 3 clubs but still undecided on his future. Apparently no Premier League interest. Ipswich and Bolton seem favourites.

Thomas Sorensen may join Huth in a move to Germany

Matthew Etherington is attracting interest from newly promoted Reading as Stoke seem favourites to land Matt Jarvis.

Two Blackburn players are to hold talks with the Potters in the following few days.

A Spanish based player is poised to sign.

A well known striker will join in June and many fringe players to leave.(22)(12)Is this news from Stoke or just from your head?Cant see Stoke getting Jarvis , they do not ant to pay ten million pounds for him.It amazes me how much every reading fan despises Simon Church...... He is still young and hasn't matured as a player. Shane Long joined us in 2005 and sat the bench for us until Doyle and Hunt left in 2009 where he didn't start of to well under Brendan Rodgers, but as soon as McD came in he started firing in the goals, 5 years after joinging so cut Church some slack!Care to divulge the names of the spanish based player and the well known striker?Stoke payed 10m for a player last season and was in the top 5 spending clubs in the premLong came as a friend for Doyle to keep him happy and turned into a great player with natural instinct something Church lacks. He does get alot of stick but he just isnt good enough to be a striker at the highest level.It's not all reading fans, I for one think he's decent, just needs time and maybe having Roberts around will do him the world of good'Is this news from Stoke or just from your head?'

Like Upson, Crouch and Palacios were from my head you mean? Anything you would like to add to players we're after?I didnt know reading were suddenly very rich and attracting players from better teams


29 May 2012 22:52:24
Steve Howard is a target for newly promoted Huddersfield(5)(19)Wont be joining a Championship squad


29 May 2012 22:42:32
Derby have drawn up a striker list to replace both Steve Davies and Chris Maguire who will be leaving in the summer. My source has said that Nigel and his men have split the strikers in to 2 sections and they would like 1 from each.

Section one:
Jon Daly, Dundee Utd, £750,000
Sam Vokes, Wolves, £500,000
Kyle Lafferty, Rangers, £1.25m
Heidar Helguson, QPR, £300,000
Lee Novak, Huddersfield, £750,000
Frank Nouble, free transfer

Section 2
Simon Cox, West Brom, £1.75m
DJ Campbell, QPR, 1.25m
Johnny Russell, Dundee Utd, £750,000
Simeon Jackson, free transfer

The fees are what Derby believe they can get the player for. Of course tehy might have to pay more than that.(5)(31)Lafferty could be had for 3/4mill
due to rangers money problems
factNo chance dundee utd will sell daly for less than 1.5 mill russell more than 2 mill probsLaffertys release Clause is £575000Nouble & Jackson it is then!!Not a hope in hell of getting Russell from Dundee Utd for that money! They have already rejected bids of double that!Lafferty can leave for £575k after something triggered in his clause. Source: The scottish SunI think its actually less than that mate. £500k I think but if you google it you'll find it because its been in the papers.What makes you think you will get Simeon Jackson on a free transfer, first of all Norwich will take up the one year option on June 30th and will probably give him a longer contract.
yes they might sell depending on getting in potential targets, but expect to pay at least 1.5M if you want to tempt Norwich to cash in on him.


29 May 2012 22:40:12
Bristol City have made another bid for Richard Keogh worth £850 000. Coventry have had the bid since Monday morning and have yet to respond. This presumably means they are considering the bid.(8)(15)I suspect it was Cardiff who made this bid - £850k is already too much for this playerToo much, ha he's was one of the best defenders in the championship


29 May 2012 22:37:38
Peterborough have agreed a fee with MK Dons for the transfer of goalkeeper David Martin to London Road. Martin will now discuss personal terms with The Posh.(11)(12)Thank God, Worst keeper in historyI hope not he was pretty poor compared to the last to keepers posh had lewis and jonesWont happen. Martin isn't that amazing and thats coming from a Dons supporter.Absolute rubbish!Not true.Its Paul Gazzinga from Gillingham we are afterDavid Martin over 20 clean sheets im a dons fan and mate your a dons fan and i think your deluded.. he's one our best players.. he was voted 20th in best players outside the premier league! he wants to stay at mk dons! no one wants to go to Peterborough so shut up.Martin is a terrible keeper, so good riddance!Martin isn't going anywhere guys and he's a brilliant keeperWould have been more than 20 clean sheets if our defenders didn't tackle each other, hesitate, leaving the door wide open or passing back ridiculously short balls! Serious undervalued by our fansMartin is a brilliant keeper. i didnt think that when Grant McCanns free kick sneaked past him in the play off semi ;)Might aswell move the whole Wimbledon set up again to peterborough if half of this cap is to be believed... we're linked with nearly all of the Moo camps sub standard rubbish


29 May 2012 22:36:41
All this far fetched fulham stuff is rubbish
Dempsey to psg 9.7m
Chadli to fulham 4.3m
Simpson to fulham 3.6m
Bh riise to watford
Baird to norwich
Jansen to fulham 5.6m
Etuhu to millwall/palace
Narsingh to fulham
Haliche to leicester
Jerry amarimko to fulham

This is all that will happen(1)(28)I reckon we'll get Snodgrass, soon we'll be calling him Snoddy when he's a player at Carra Rud. Lol were gonna nick both of Leed's captains in the space of a year, who would have thought? OTBC!!No way will etuhu go millwall or palaceEtuhu wont even get into millwalls team hell have better luck with palace.Millwall are well covered in CM - Trotter, Wright, Abdou, Mkandawire... Etuhu wouldn't get in the first 11.


29 May 2012 22:32:39
Southampton will secure the transfer of Burnley's Jay Rodriguez as soon as the striker returns from holiday next week.

Nigel Adkins and Nicola Cortese also plan the early swoop of Blackpool winger Tom Ince and will prepare a player plus cash deal to tempt Blackpool. The fee reported to have been readied is around £2.9million and the player has been rumoured to be Jason Puncheon.(27)(7)You paid 7 mil for thatYes,because we could.7million well spent when he bangs in the goalsAbit steep for a championship player but if he gets the goals to keep saints up could be a snap at that price better then 32 mil for caroll lolEveryone keeps going on about 7 million being a bit to much and it probable is for an unproven player at prem level but Arsenal paid us 12 million raising to 15 million for AOC and we were in league 1 at the time. The end of the day Strikers are not cheap and sometimes you got to take a gamble if he scores 10-15 goals next season and help us stay in the prem then it will be money well spent. Besides name me a striker we could get for 7 million that is better then Jay Rod and dont start saying Defoe, Owen and other players like that because there wages would be stupid.He hasn't agreed terms yet? He declined you last summer, who's to say he will do it again?He didn't decline us last summer, Burnley turned the bid down! Big difference.

Silly Burnley fans are deluded into thinking he loves the club with his heart and soul and couldn't leave without dying or something. Soppy.We were Championship then. Now we're Premier League!

If he doesn't want to come, his loss, will move on!He go because it's a chance to play in the premier league. Last summer we had only just gone up to the championship,Deluded? Silly? The fact is he is a Burnley lad and is a supporter as well as a player. So yes heart and soul is probably right and he will leave for his choice of club..we will never know he truth about what happened last summer..what we do know (unofficially) is that we have accepted your bid and its up to him now...if someone else comes in especially be worried.He never declined us actually, a bid has never been accepted before this one, so we'll see what happens.Be very worried. Jay Rod may yet sign for Sotton but only as a last resortHes definitley joining a prem club as im sure he wants to break into the england squad for the WC doubt hes leaving burnley.^^ how's it his loss if he doesn't sign for u ?? If he turns u down he will go 2 a bigger clibWouldnt be surprised weather the interest from spurs for jay rodriguez sparks a bid that will topple s/hampton.Jay rod turned saints down last summer end of yes he has chance to play in the prem but for what one season? he would be best off goin to everton were he knows he will get prem football for a few seasonsHe will sign for Saints, end of, and then overnight will mysteriously become a crap player and not worth £7M. It will also then be revealed that as per Billy Sharp, he nearly joined Saints 12 mos ago and has no problems moving a few hundred miles south. He would be a bench warmer at Spurs and too expensive for Everton.What go to everton and be stuck behind Jelavic. Nice one mate, sit on the bench thats really gonna get him in the England squad


29 May 2012 22:32:36
Huddersfield's Simon Grayson is planning a shopping trip to Leeds.
Hoping to pick up a few bargains!!
Possibilities are Alex Bruce,Adam Clayton and Ross McCormack(13)(22)Bruce has already gone!Leeds are probably under transfer embargo at the moment, so I think Grayson will look elsewhere for the time being.Bruce recently blamed Grayson for his lack of games at least as he favoured other defenders before him. Cant see them linking up.This is funny, clayton and mcormack for town, lol .


29 May 2012 22:31:52
Martinez to stay at wigan will go for long term target dos santos from spurs and hooper from celtic for 5 mill(12)(14)Yip your right , celtic will sell hooper for 5million after rejecting and offer for 7 million !! back to sleep now5mil???Appeanrenly swansea are intrested in dos santos5 mill for hooper is a joke he is worth at least 15 imoSwansea aint got a manager so cant see how they areHooper is overrated the SPL is like division 1 standards, he would struggle to score 10 in Prem.He wouls score plenty against that diddy Gary Caldwell!He was one of the top scorers in the championship with a poor Scunthorpe team!To the guy who postes about hooper scoring 10 in EPL. what about Jelavic he has a better ratio in EPL than in SPL. can you explain that? No? didn't think so.After hours of grilling my brain trying to get my head around such a complicated puzzle, i can infact explain it! well.... he scores more goals per game in the EPL than the SPL therefore his 'ratio' is better in the EPL.


29 May 2012 22:31:51
Crawley Town defender Kyle McFadzean will join Peterborough United in a player + cash deal which will see Nicky Ajose join Crawley.(15)(11)Sure he belongs to sheffield united..No he doesn't ..Crawley must be signing about 50 players if you believe them all.

A check of their website shows they have signed 1 player to replace a goalkeeper that left a few days earlier.

Either 10-15 players are going to arrive at once or they will keep what they have and do it on the cheap. The latter seems more likely.


29 May 2012 22:29:55
Oldham Athletic have accepted a fee in the region of £350k from Peterborough for goalkeeper Alex Cisak.(8)(7)Quite simply no we havent, what we will do is let his contract expire first , and them just give him to you for free, like we do with all our best playersTo be honest if that were true, it would be worth taking as we can easily pick another keeper up and really need the money but it isn't. He's under 24 for a couple of years yet anyway so even when his current contract expires we wouldn't lose him for free.Absolute garbage!So we will have to get him to sign a contract right up until his 24th birthday, dont u know were not supposed to get fees for anyone, even taylor who we nurtured from a boy, football is just wrong on too many levels


29 May 2012 22:28:43
Stevenage midfielder is to join Peterborough United for a fee in the region of £250k(5)(12)Witch midfielder ?The wizard oneWizard?This is the best response to anything ever.Who is wizard?? lol have you just made that up?


29 May 2012 22:27:31
Colchester United midfielder Anthony Wordsworth has agreed a 3 year contract with Peterborough United.(10)(5)Do you think Gleeson has signed a two year contract with Mk Dons?Have the posh got £800K to spend on one player? This is what the feeds reported to be on woody's head anywayYes. People don't realise how much money we've received for CMS, Bennett, etc. Its so annoyingYes we haveYes we do have £800k, we've sold mclean, cms, bennett, will be taylor and boyd, we have our promotion money, and our chairmans own money, stop underestimating us, if we want him, we'll pay that for him without a problem.Fair enough, good luck to him if thats where he ends up. Good footballer, if a bit lazy and goes missing during games at times; but has got a decent future for sureTotally didn't pay 1 million for Barnett or 600,000 for Brisley. I mean just where the hell did we find that money? Peterborough don't have any money according to the obviously correct assumptions of just about every other fan in the world


29 May 2012 22:25:11
Norwich have bid £1.5 million for Robert Snodgrass, supposedly the amount will rise to £2 million and a player from Norwich may be involved. But who knows eh?! OTBC(22)(13)It may not happen anytime soon due to the takeover and possible transfer embargo at elland roadWhat transfer embargo - because someone might buy the club, are u having a laugh....


29 May 2012 22:24:37

29 May 2012 22:19:09
Port Vale are rumoured to be keeping tabs on TNS striker Greg Draper(6)(1)Wouldn't be a bad signing for the Vale, he's only about 22 and was lethal in the Welsh Premier last season


29 May 2012 21:59:24

29 May 2012 20:58:50
qpr will sign arsenal's star striker Niklas Bendtner for a fee of roughly £8mil, for the Dane to sign though he also wants to be on a salary of £70k a week.

Source: Bendtners agent(17)(28)No way he not that good liesYou say bendters agent.... So who is his agent?Star striker ? this is blatant liesAlthough i want to disagree Football just
gets more ridiculous an that is probally the fee Qpr will pay if they are interested'Star Striker' this did make me smile, thanksHis agent is his own father..Ha if bentner is worth 8 mil jay rod for 7 mil is a stealIf hes worth that then im worth half of that and im rubbishBendtner was on £59K week at Arsenal and no club in their right mind will pay £70K for him, inconsistent or what, hardly a star striker, Hang on though QPR might be daft enough to pay that kind of money, god help them if they slip out of premiers league next year.


29 May 2012 20:53:32
Bristol Rovers are set to sign Ross Draper from Macclesfield,(5)(12)Is this true its just that most of the stuff put on here is lies like when everyone was going on about that polish striker.You mean the Polish striker that was actually a teenager who supports city and lives in bristol.


29 May 2012 20:42:37
Stevenage are to sign Conor Casey and one other MLS player later this week(12)(6)


29 May 2012 20:41:07
All rumours concerning Marlon Pack are untrue, Marlon is happy at Cheltenham and has told Mark Yates (manager) that he would like to spend the rest of his career at CTFC.(6)(24)Yes like if a top club came along and offers him more then his 1500 weekly wage and offers him more he would refuse and say sorry mr premship manager u can keep ur 50k a week and top level football I'm happy here lmao wake up if some comes along with bigger wages he's goneStrongly doubt a 21 year old has made up his mind of where he wants to be for the rest of his careerYou're deluded if you think he's staying there his whole career. He'll leave in a year or so.Pack is moving to Swindon for 900kHe's loyal to us, he wouldn't go to a premiership club where he isn't played... some footballers are actually decent lads and don't play for money...


29 May 2012 20:39:04
James Collins, Emile Heskey and Michael Owen are top of Martin O'Neills transfer list. Although rumour has it Steven Fletcher is also strongly wanted to bolster the black cats strikeforce.(13)(26)


29 May 2012 20:43:48
Stoke have been rumoured to be looking at Colin Kazim-Richards but will face tough completion from Olympiacos for his signature. This is only a rumour from a few sources around Stoke, it is not set in stone.(15)(8)Ode tone doesn't buy from aboard lolKazim ricards is English. Pennant is staying at stoke cityMatty and pennant are way past there best we are not the lowest goal scores for nothingPennant is a good player but he does need completion for his place out on right wing. i reckon kazim richards would be a decent signingAnd Pennant joined from what club again? ...........sorry you said aboard I thought it said abroad!!!


29 May 2012 20:35:03
Doncaster's James Coppinger to sign
for Preston North End for £150k.(8)(16)He is looking for a Championship club close to Doncaster, £150K is a ridiculous fee and he has a benefit year at Doncaster in two years time?We dont have 150kCopps wont go to preston hes daft but not that daftAs much as id love this to happen, its not going to happen... he's better than a lg 1 playerHe needs to be loyel to the rovers for 1 more season at leastPne do have money but will not spend it on players who dnt fit into westley way of playingPne have already broke the bank a bit with all the players they have signed recentley, so i dont think they will be signing players that they cant get for freesCoppinger is going nowhere as my dad works there and he told me!


29 May 2012 20:33:55
I've heard that David Healy is on his way to Fleetwood.(8)(17)David Healy has played for the two biggest clubs in British football.(and Leeds). He is not going to the second team in Blackpool.How the mighty as fallen bad move for himI heard they do cracking fish & chips too!Suppose with the cutbacks he can't afford to holiday in Tenerife...


29 May 2012 20:32:09
Free Agent watch:

Nigel Reo-Coker to QPR

Ivan Klasnic to Sunderland

Didier Drogba to PSG

Julien Faubert to Fulham

watch this space!(9)(7)I find it highly unlikely Drogba would end up at PSG. He absolutely loves Marseilles (despite only being there for a year!) so to go there when so many options are open to him would be strange to say the least. Not saying it won't happen, just will be extremely surprised if it does. My money is on Real, Anzhi or Shanghai.

Wouldn't worry about Hall Blues fans, Shrewsbury also reckon they are in for Orient's Dean Cox too lol! They're living in dreamland if they think they can afford him, and we've heard from the horses mouth (Sturrock on ShrimperZone last week) that NONE of our players will be leaving for small fees - least of all Hall etc.

Tripe.(4)(8)One person posted about Dean Cox. Does this mean that every Shrewsbury fan is living in dream land?

Doubt Shrewsbury have bid for Hall anyway but I'm sure he'll leave this summer, if not the next.One fan posted about Heskey signing.....

people sometime exaggerate the truth , don't take anything for granted like Shrewsbury's captain left on a free from a Southend Fan by the way.Well Shrewsbury have a record of succes with players home grown or rebuilding careers. Examples I hear you cry Joe Hart, Grant Holt, David Edwards & Marc Terinry.Steven Fletcher,Danny Guthrie both Shrewsbury boys. Gylfi Sigurrdson and David Davis also launched their careers here.I think Ryan Hall is good quality and would be a good free-kick taker for us. We could do with one of those. COYBShrewsbury are a well-run club and could probably afford Hall if they wanted, unlike Southend who are always living beyond their means.So Shrewsbury are happy to splash around £250-300k plus add-ons for Hall are they? I highly doubt that somehow. If that's the case we'll possibly take it.

He'd probably say he doesn't want to leave for the Shrews anyway even if a bid is accepted, Hall knows the likes of Ipswich and Forest have had him watched a lot in the recent past and there is a lot of interest from the CCC and L1.Shrewsbury could definitely afford that kind of fee, but I'm certain that the chairman and manager wouldn't want to. Would be a gamble on somebody who's barely played above League Two.

QPR look certain to sure up their attacking options this summer by bringing in two of either Michael Owen, Alessandro Del Piero, Bas Dost, Arouna Kone, Jermain Defoe and Kenwyne Jones. They are also in the market for wingers with Tranquillo Barnetta who has recently been released by Leverkusen and Miroslav Stoch from Fenebahce being their main targets.(14)(18)Barnetta is moving to London! Not quite good enough for the big 3, so possibly destinations are QPR, Fulham or West Ham.

Southampton are looking to loan Carl Jenkinson from Arsenal(15)(13)Nope, god awfulSouthampton will not loan any other teams youngsters when we have better ones coming through our own youth system. We will give our own the opportunity before giving others first team football. If we loan players i would imagine it would be experienced Prem players that are struggling to get into there own first team. Having said that i did hear a rumour that we are taking alex oxlade-chamberlain back on a season long loan but i guess that depends on whether he has a good euros or not.Jack Stephens and luke shaw are better than him anyway so why we would want himIt's true I've seen on the Internet he's been linked after wenger described as a quality player and thinks he deserves to play for a lower premier league team


29 May 2012 19:30:39
Elliott Hewitt to undergo his medical at portman road tomorrow (wednesday) due to it being his 18th birthday and therefore he will be able to sign a longer contract with the tractor boys.(15)(4)And celebrate being second choice signing behind Joel WardLonger term will be a far better signing than Ward. How many Premiership scouts watched Ward? 34 scouts to one Macclesfield game shows how intensely the top teams were watching him. Most have been frightened off by his hip injury, so Ipswich stole a march on them. Great move by them. Hewitt will become a Premiership defender one day, so I hope Macclesfield have made sure that there is an appropriate sell on clause in the deal.Elliott is a mate of mine, and I can tell you know he won't be taking part in any medical anytime soon... He's on crutches just had his second hip op.Elliott is a mate of mine. What rubbish! Elliott will join - that's for certain.

Derby have been contacted by both Bolton and Blackpool regarding striker Steve Davies. My sources inform that the Rams have slapped a £1m price tag on the 12 goal hitman.

Derby could be looking to replace Davies with Frank Nouble who is currently out of contact. From what I can gather Derby would like to take the 20 year old striker on trial first before offering him a contract.(7)(2)He is worth a least £1m averaged nearly a goal every two games having missed 12 weeks of the seasonFrank Nouble has been given a trial along
with Nigel Hasselbienk this was confirmed by Andy Garner.But as far as
a Steve Davies replacement its Johnny
Russell and If that fulls through Jamie
MurphyI know right.with people saying hes barely worth 200k.Unlike other seasons he played every game possible there were no hamstring or calf injurys it was just really unfortunate that he clashed heads with fonte otherwise it would have been 24 goals and if you think about those draws could have been turned into wins and derby could have been in the play offs.Just to those derby fans.Paul green and Steve davies have told nigel that actually they might sign new deals but whether this is because steves family issues have been resolved and Greeny has got any good offers.Plus Nigel still isnt whether to let Miles Addison go as he maybe big but that can be resolved with a hard pre-season.


29 May 2012 18:48:57
It is looking certain that Jordan Rhodes will be leaving the Galpharm, with Fulham reportedly lining up a £5million bid and also Celtic now interested the temptation of top flight football is too much.

Replacements for Rhodes include Simon Church (Reading), Craig Davies (Barnsley) Jason Walker (York)(7)(21)Norwich boundProbably not good enough for the best league in the world but then again no la liga bbva teams are looking at him but he,s sure good enough ta play in engurlandGive us 10% of the rhodes fee and you can have church. il even drive him to huddersfield myself. Worst ever striker to grace Reading's 1st teamOnly reading player going to town is sean morrisonJason Walker from york,worst player ive ever seen dont think so!Don't know about Simon Church being the worst ever striker to wear a Reading shirt. Jimmy Crawford was pretty naffCraig davies wouldnt dareJimmy Crawford wasn't a striker.Paul brayson was the worst ever striker for the royalsCedric baseye worst ever reading forward


29 May 2012 18:48:43
Yeovil have signed Newport County's Sam Foley on a one year contract. So if he scores 15+ goals next season, like Dean Bowditch and Andy Williams, he too will be off at the end of the season to 'find a new challenge' and the like. Brilliant!(9)(3)You cant commit unproven players to long term contracts... if yeovil are sensible, they will have an extension clause...Totally agree. How are we meant to compete in the league when we have players on one year contracts.Better than not having him for a season, maybe the review at christmas will be a clause that allows us to further the contract to 2 years. you don't know what that will mean, have some faithThe guy is unproven in the league! so a one year deal is the correct one! heard he has a clause in contract where we can extend deal in december if all goes well. dont put to much pressure on the lad. Keep calm!You won't be saying that if he has an ineffective season... he needs to prove he can cut it at league one and then look at an extension... however, i agree that Keanu Marsh-Brown should have a longer deal as he is an established league one playerKeanu Marsh-Brown is also still young so a 1 year contract is a smart option for the club.Clause in the contract? Yeovil never put clauses into contracts!Is anthony edgar released?Foley's contract will be reviewed in December, so there will be a view to a longer deal. Sensible option as he's unproven at League 1 level.
Yes Edgar has been releasedNo, Edgar is still contracted, but has been told he can find a new club.As far as I'm aware, Anthony Edgar hasn't been released as he still has another year on his contract. He's been told he doesn't feature in Gary Johnson's plans, so he's free to leave if he can find another club. The problem will be, he'll probably drop to a lower level & be on less money, therefore his agent will tell him to stay at Yeovil unless they agree to pay up his contract, or at least a substantial portion of it. If past history is anything to go by, Yeovil won't be able to afford to pay him off, so he'll probably stay on the books. Hence the reason the two new signings have one year deals with a review clause in them.

Peteborough Utd are finalising a deal to land Dundee Utd's Danny Swanson for £400,000k. The Posh have also made an enquiry in to Dundee Utd's want away striker Johnny Russell.

Leeds Utd have made their move to land the 2 strikers Neil Warnock believes can fire them in to the top 6. Leeds have made a £1.25m bid for QPR's DJ Campebll. They have also contacted Milwall in regards to last seasons top scorer Darius Henderson.(5)(11)Source no source and warnock on holiday pal!Umm, Swanson is on a free get your facts right mate.Johnny Russell is not want away he's publicly stated that staying at Utd for at least another year is in his own best interestDanny Swanson is out of contract and therefore available on a free!Would love to see Swanson & Russell at London Road. But Swanson is on a free and is in talks with MK Dons, whilst Russell states he will stay another yearRegrettably, the only thing likely to get fired at Leeds is Warnock, took them from play off favourites to mid table!

Ralf Rangnick to be appointed as new West Brom manager, depending on his requests regarding an assistant Ray Wilkins could be appointed to work alongside him. Rangnick is keen on maintaining the group of players he already has and intends on targeting 3-4 quality to players to add to the ranks. He is an ambitious man and the board feel he will help to build the club up to be ready to fight for and compete in Europe in coming seasons(17)(1)Would love this to happen, but can't see it tbhPlease no. Anyone but some nobody. All Woys good work will be undone and relegation will follow. Jeremy Peace will have a lot to answer for.Who the hell is ralf rangnick. agree that he will undo roy's good work why not go for michael laudrup who has knowledge of the european market and is a respected manSome nobody!?, Rangnick lead Schalke to 2nd in the budesliga and to the semi final of the champions league and has 20 years of good managerial experience. A quality choiceRalf rangnick took hoffenheim from elague 3 to 3rd in bundesliga and did well for schlake with a budget, he will be very suited at the hawthorns.Ralf is very well known in Germany I think it would be a good appointment. Boing boing n welcomen to Ralf.How can you not know who someone is then in the next breath say they will undo someones good work? if you don't know them how do you know how qualified they are. as it happens Ralf Ragniek is a very experienced successful german manager! who managed schalke to the champions league semi final!Ralfs record in germany managed 500 lost 100 hes class got great knwoledge fo teh game and brought therough players such as huntelaar and demba baDo your home work before you say 'NO', this guy is a class act.....get him in NOW

Out of contract pair Stephen Gleeson and Michael Jacobs will be unveiled as Peterborough United players on friday after compensation fees were agreed with MK Dons and Northampton Town.(8)(14)Gleeson signed for 2 more years at MKWrong Gleeson has signed a 2 year contract extension with MK DonsSteven Gleeson has turned Posh down yet again. So has Dundee United's Danny Swanson. Gleeson signed a new two year deal today. Swanson gone home to think over the Dons offer.No gleeson just signed a contractGleeson signed new contract with mighty DONSThats funny as gleeson has just signed a new two year dealGleesons agreed a new two year deal with donsThe lad obviously thinks league one is his limit then!Well done Gleeson fr showing some loyalty! Turning down moves to Championship clubs! Enjoy more heartbreak in the playoffs!

Before, you say enjoy relegation next season, remember at least we have made it to championship level! PUFCHAHA posh wont get any of these... there both to good to play for you! + gleesons signed a new contract... & jacobs will get BIGGER & BETTER then little posh..Gleeson has turned us down heis overated and jacobs will wait a little longer before deciding as he will get offers from a few more clubs yet and swanson will be signing for posh nots dons as he plans on moving up the ladder not downIf Gleeson were to leave it would be to a better club than Peterborough.I don't understand how dons fans can say the posh are bad? We have both more money than you and play a much better standard? Gleeson obviously isn't that good or he wouldn't turn down championship football? Idiots!Gleeson signed 2 year deal with MK Dons todayHaha your all slating posh, were a better club than mk dons so stop being keyboard warriors and remember...were in the championship, you are not, hence we are better and biggerHas anyone mentioned that Gleeson has signed a new 2 year deal?May i just point out that the posh have a history and were not a frachise. gleeson must be scared of playing at a high level and MK dons wont be better than peterborough till they finish higher than 9th place in the championship. Till this happens the mighty posh are the better team.POSH chairman confirmed that Gleeson was not a target this year so no offers made and no rejections received.Key board warriors... your the only ones arguing deluded boro aha

With the TSI takeover now completed, Reading FC look likely to bolster their squad for survival in the Premier League. With few players likely to leave the newly promoted outfit and pass up the chance to play in the Premiership, it will mostly be transfers into the Berkshire club that will be the main talking points.

Across numerous transfer speculation websites we've been predicted to spend in the region of 15-20 million, and these are the reported players on which that money will probably be spent.


Adrian Mariappa - Watford (3-5 million)
Chris Gunter - Nottingham Forest (3 million)
Yakubu - Blackburn (1 million)
Geoff Cameron - Houston Dynamo (3 million)
Matt Phillips - Blackpool (2.5 million)


Jordan Rhodes - Huddersfield (7 million)
Joe Cole - Liverpool (season long loan/ 50% wages)
David 'Junior' Hoilett - Blackburn (5 million as compensation despite being out of contract)
Christoph Berra - Wolves (2 million)
Radolsaw Majewski - Nottingham Forest (2 million)
Dame N'Doye - FC Copenhagen (5 million)
Jermain Defoe - Tottenham Hotspur (4 million)


Simon Church - Crystal Palace/Watford/Leicester/Ipswich (2 million)
Mikkel Anderson - Watford (season-long loan)
Sean Morrisson - Huddersfield (1 million)
Michail Antonio - Sheffield Wednesday (700k)

These are 100% legitimate rumours and I predict that of this list Brian McDermott will sign 4/5 players, a centre-back as cover, a full-back, a creative midfielder and two strikers.(18)(25)No chance any of them would sign for a club like reading2.5 million for MP should be laughed at more than.

He will go to a better club for 5 millionThe names are sourced from lazy press journalism, but the valuations on nearly everyone is way way out ...example Mariappa £3-5m....that makes the thread lose any loose credibility it hadWhat's all the compensation about if Hoilett's out of contract? {Ed003's Note - because he is under 24 }Why would anyone want Simon church ? He is a donkeyIMO chris Gunter would be a great signing along with yakubu and a few other players eg. Matt Phillips, Adrian mariappa and I would be very surprised if dame N'Doye joined us !Phillips is not worth £5mil. £2.5 is about right...First team squad of 25!!100% legitimate rumours - I love it!Dream OnOyston will wait till next season when his (MP)value will go up to sell himPure fantasySimon Church Watford 2 million ha haReading will be back in the championship next year and reading won't get Defoe IN YOUR DREAMS, enjoy the PL why u can ;)Marriappa would cost £2M max. Defo would cost £8-10m minimum and if Church was sold for £2m id get smashed. I dont think Gunter is worth 3m either, id rather sign Clyne for that muchHow is Rhodes worth more than Defoe? A proven premier league goal scorer. Rhodes has scored a few in league 1 but so did Beckford and look at him now.Mariappa will not go for as low as £2m, FACT. We do not need to sell him and he's worth more. If Rodriguez is worth £7m with a year on his contract... yeah.

Church to Watford for £2m? We do not have that kind of money to spend.Dream Come True :DTo the Watford fan above. Yes he's worth more but he's out of contract next summer with no new deal on the cards at the moment and the club needs money. He's off, simple as that and probably for under 3m.N'Doye would cost no-where near £5m. £2.5m maximum.Berra ! lol. Iam a Wolves fan you can have him.Rhodes is a young British talent who has scored more than 'a few' goals and that's why he's so expensive. Still think he's overpriced and honestly hope we don't get him if he plays like he did in the play-off final!To the Muppet who said a club like Reading let me guess your a United supporter (Plum)Rhodes has no Championship experience, £7m is an utter rip off! Even Rodriguez is a massive rip off and he's much better than Rhodes.

Mariappa has 1 year on his We have gotten around £2m for the likes of Priskin and Tommy Smith with a year on their contract... Mariappa is worth more than them both. There is competition for his signature too....Its the fact that you think we don't need to sell! Would you rather have 2m for him or nothing next summer??Your get none of them you're always be a small club"Reading will be back in the championship next year and reading won't get Defoe IN YOUR DREAMS, enjoy the PL why u can ;)

You most likely said that about Swansea, Norwich and QPR last year as well. You obviously have no idea about anything to do with Reading so why write them off?^ Any team would rather have something than nothing. Yet Burnley still got £7m for Rodriguez when a team could've said "Take £2m or get nothing next year".Simon church to Ipswich, no he's not a twenty goal a season playerRhodes is going nowhere - Town fan. Dean Hoyle is building, not dismantling a squad. Only old wood going.Church is going to brighton or leedsHOW RHODES PLAYED IN FINAL? Your having a laugh! Nobody had a shot on target until 70th minute... and 7 shots till 90th min. Thats the sort of game it was. Both teams had really good tactics in order not to lose. both teams were scared of leaving too much space at the back. People who see one game how he plays quick to judge, try watching him all season. He is staying at town. no reason for him to want to go just yet. Town offering him a nice new contract any way.He has only gone 22. Champ first then Prem.Send church out on loan, build his confidence back up. He is still a decent player, scored 2 against west ham last year etc.

Reading in battle with Liverpool to sign Krasic from Juventus. Source:

More than likely Liverpool will beat reading for his signature but you never know.(7)(17)You watch all the players now being chased by Reading after their takeover!Well if Rodgers has anything to do with it...we will definitely lose out ...our transfer nemesis !When linked with United, Chelsea, Spurs & Liverpool would anyone in their right mind consider Reading? I like them but he seems way too good from what is seen..Various articles confirm this, not gonna put it up for the sake of it. I hadn't hear of him til I read the story haRogers didn't work out for Reading as a manager of our first, good youth coach for us though and its but to see him making it happen elsewhere ... As for the guy sayin 'watch Reading chase all the players now the takeover is complete' TBF Reading has its targets (since Jan) and will get 80% of them without going crazing with over the top fees. Do some research on the club it's run well and finally will have the £ staying power for Pl football.You can all the money which I doubt you have but your always be a small clubSo you doubt Reading have money, despite the 51% takeover from a Millionaire and his Billionaire father aswell as a few other minor investors.

Charlton will beat Crystal Palace to the signing of Cheltenham Towns explosive winger Jermaine Mcglashen whos end of season form helped the League two outfit to the playoff final.(3)(8)Never heard of himCheltenham paid £75,000 for him in January and it would need a bid far in excess of that to prise him away now.Never heard of him? Then you should have watched the play offs like any proper football fan!As far as I am aware Charlton are not in for this player, any footballer that is good enough for Charlton is far too good Palace anyway.We got zaha, Williams, Parr thanks, you are welcome to himSaw McGlashen at Aldershot believe it or not, my local club, saw him in the play-off final too for Cheltenham. Quality, whether he could make it in the Championship I don't know though.You haven't got Zaha for long! Charlton will finish above Palace this seasonYou wont have zaha next season mate!No end product. Not even Cheltenham fan's rate him that much.We will have zaha, just penned a 5 yr deal, only a ridiculous offer will prize him away. Wow the winners of the 3rd division are really confident! You wont finish above us, trust me the league's stronger since you been playing in lower leagues! You haven't the cash Southampton, br13ton have!I will bet you any money you want Zaha will be at Palace next year. Charlton will struggle like last time they were in the championship. Not good enough I'm afraidWe don't have the cash eh? We are wealthier than palace, look up mr. Kevin cash, one of the most powerful people in London, mega rich and has 600-700mill for us to spend as well as the other owners, you couldn't even finish above millwall last season it'll be league 1 for you next year, we are more likely to get promoted than palace,How can you comment on Palace, when last time you were in this league you got relegated. for 4 years charlton fans have said we will be relegated, clueless.Financial fair play will make owner's wealth absolutely pointless. Palace aren't far off running profitably. And I'd comment on Charlton's squad, but I haven't followed lower league football over the last 3 yearsNo you've just followed your poor team survive by the skin of their teeth every season, you cnt even finish above millwall, I'm gunna thank you in advance for the 6 easy points, chin chinFinish by the skin of our teeth? But we still haven't gone down have we? We are slowly making progress on and off the pitch you lot can only dream of having the calibre of youngsters we have. Any team which goes 4 nil down to notts county at HOME will struggle in the championship. We took 4 points off of millwall, 4 off of br13ton, and I suspect at least 4 off of you soon.

I hope he comes back to Charlton, but only on a short contract because he has to prove that he can be what we all thought he would be in his youth with us. Best of luck to him wherever he goes.Don't think so somehow. Powell's whole philosophy is that if he decided to leave before his not welcome back. More to the point if he ain't good enough for Leeds he's not coming to The Valley.Sam left us and he is never coming back to the valley, we have better RM than him anyway.

Sam is a top league 1 RM at best."Sam left us and he is never coming back to the valley, we have better RM than him anyway.

Sam is a top league 1 RM at best."

I dont agree, he was in a very poor team when he left us and who can blame him for that, we were going nowhere fast. Put him in a better team with clear instructions and he'll do a job. QED^^^^ it's wasn't a poor team we finished 4th or 5th and lost in the PO's by penalties, your thinking of the team that we finished 13th with, our team was good with him, shelvey, burton, jenkinson, Bailey etcIt was 4th and it was a poor team.Sam's a quality player but he wouldn't get in over Jackson or GreenTo be fair ^^^^ I doubt Jenkinson made more than a couple of sub appearances that season mate

Im sure he cant wait to swop trips from anfield to likes portman road, dream on taff.Keogh will not join bristol city as coventry delind bristol's bid for around 250,000 and coventry called it derisory, Cardiff made an official bid not sure of how much£600,000 was the official bid for keogh and Cardiff will spend 2mil or more on a player because we made an official £5.5million bid for jay rod


29 May 2012 17:35:47
Reading interested in taking yakubu off blackburns hands for a fee of £1million which is thought to be the clause in his contract if they got relegated they also face competition from promotion rivals west ham and Southampton !(22)(7)Reading are welcome to him.Well said

Ralf Rangnick to be announced as new west brom manager tomorrow - genuine(8)(3)Are you entirely sure what genuine means


29 May 2012 17:33:10
Charlton will renew their interest in MK Dons Stephen Gleeson.A move broke down both in the summer and January.Chris Powell believes the Addicks promotion to the championship could help seal a deal.(4)(2)One of the few rumours on here that sounds like it could have legs.This could happen along with right winger Daniel Powell.Charlton are after a centre mid that is no secret and I would imagine many irons are in the fire. Gleeson sounds plausible but not sure he is the tough tackler that we require TBH.Gleeson has just re-signed a 2 year contract for Dons.Just because he's signed a contract, doesn't mean it won't happen. It's a good way of increasing the player's value. But, I agree, it does seem to make it less likely...No player signs a contract n goes thats rubbish


29 May 2012 17:29:22
George Elokobi attracting interest from Bristol City, Middlesbrough, Hull and Leicester. Although he is still believed to be part of Solbakken's plans has only a year left on his deal and unlikely to sign a new one(9)(4)Hes been seen in the bristol areaYeah they have made the first move. Boro still keeping up their interest from January but dependant on the McManus situation. Hull dependent on new manager and he seems to be one of 2/3 choices for Leicester, probably not first choice.


29 May 2012 17:28:30
Charlton manager Chris Powell sees Brightons Matt Sparrow as an ideal signing to strengthen his midfield options.
Bournemouths Marc Pugh is also a target(3)(5)I will pay his taxi and removals if true!I'll open the door for himThis one is far from reality, sorry Brighton fans you'll have to look elsewhere to dump this one.Matt sparrow is dirty and average have him he's a reserve playerI was present when Powell watched the BHA reserves, including Sparrow, play Crawley last season (Sparrow had a mare that day but showed good form later in the season before suspensions did for him)


29 May 2012 17:26:35
Martin O'Neill is looking to old club Aston Villa to sign James Collins and is also interested in bringing Michael Owen to the club on a pay as you play deal.(15)(9)You can have him! good luck! haha



29 May 2012 17:19:40
Leadbitters signed a three year deal. A good signing(12)(4)Well we had him for 3 years 1st year ok 2nd rubbish 3rd only started playing last few games to get a contract, will not be missed im afraid, at least you've not paid money for him, good luck for next year with Mr Mobray ( good manager )We had leadbitter at sunderland for more than 3 years and he is a quality player on his day, great signing for boro and think will help him being back in the north east near his family n friendsAgain a town fan here. For a free he's a good player he has ability but as poster one says averaged one good seaosn over 3 years with us. Decent in all areas without being exceptional in any one area. PS do not let him take any set pieces you will regret it!


29 May 2012 17:19:22

bilel mohsni will be staying at
southend till at least next season
with a 1 year contract stopping talks
of a move to northampton(3)(1)Glad moshni is staying at southend, why bother moving to a smaller club who know doubt will finish mid table like they do every season (yes im talking about northamptonIm not a northampton fan but i find it funny when a very small team like southend call a team like northampton "small"... They have more money to spend then you do, the biggest budget in the league & by far the best manager in the league... (play off bottle jobs) from a wednesday fanThe year's option has been taken up by Southend, however, this is to ensure that the 'price' of Mohsni is now substantial to those clubs who wish to purchase. He will be a Colchester or Northampton player next season.(Im a swindons fan) But Northampton a small team LOL yes that have had a very sticky 2 years & two seasons but that would be there bad days behind them i say.... That club has alot of money, (havent they just made a rugby league team?) if they was skint they wouldnt have made a rugby team, So with the money that will get pumped into them & the manager they have (the best manager in league 2) ... If i was mohsni i'd rather play for them then VERY little southend united....


29 May 2012 16:53:55
Carlos Sanchez and Mariappa are both close to signing contracts with Reading they are also interested in Nathaniel Clyne and Wilfrid Zaha. The TSI Takeover is nearing completion. West Ham have made a 7m bid for Bas Dost but are unlikely to get him. Newcastle are looking to strengthen their French consortium with various signings from Ligue One, many stars are on their list. Leeds are in talks with Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainments. I'm very clued up in many English and French clubs, and laugh if you want, but 90% of this will come off.(5)(5)All possible except Zaha really. He decided to stay at Palace in janurary, turning down a premier liague move. If he goes anywhere it will most likely be a more establish prem team.


29 May 2012 16:58:41
Bolton midfielder may leave the Reebok
this summer with Everton a likely destination.

Source: Friend of family.

Everton wanted him last summer aswell(6)(6)Which Bolton midfielder?Which one?Name of player?Sorry but do Bolton only have one midfielder ? Who do you refer to ?Sean Davis :-DWho??I thought he would of meant M.Davies cause he's the only good one that might be possibly sold. But no way sean Davies, firstly because he's already been released and he'll be going down the championship at best


29 May 2012 16:56:53
LEADBITTER SIGNS 3 Year DEAL today with Middlesbrough !

GREAT SIGNING :)(12)(2)Average signing at best, waste of money and wages, glad he's gone.We (ITFC) paid £2.5m for 2 great goals and naff all else, you'll see the best in 2 years and 6 months time when the contract is due to expireHe's the championships xabi alonso. Make some great passes. Has good vision and control. He is also a very good team player. ITFC will miss him now he's gone..I'd compare grant lead bitter with a donkey although tht's disrespectful to a donkey tbh!Some very bitter ITFC fans on here, maybe its because they've lost their best midfielder?A honest town fan here.

Not our best midfielder he lost his place and captaincey for us this season. No doubt he has ability but is far to inconsistant and a truely terrible set piece taker. On his day he can be a exceptional. Sadly on his day is very rare. he's very quiet player as well. He's one who could be very good but he's also one that can drift out of gamesYou mean their best player. He saw nothing in ITFC so therefore packed his bags :)


29 May 2012 16:50:30
West Ham are looking at Louie Saha on a free transfer, following his release from Tottenham(16)(5)It's not even official yet

Today the papers have been saying that Bas Dost will sign for Wolfsberg but would you rather sign for a premier league club like West Ham or a mid table bundesliga club. If Dost does sign for Wolfsberg West Ham will target Louis Saha(6)(7)Easy I would sign for the germans at least they play footballWolfsburg every time, I doubt their fans still live in the past.


29 May 2012 16:41:04
Sheffield United transfers:

Simonsen - Swindon (Free)
Lowton - Leeds
Maguire - Huddersfield
Quinn - Motherwell.(3)(14)Why would lowton go to leeds as hes a blades fan? Maguire if he goes would go to a premeirship side not a below average championship side & stephen quinns attracted interest from teams such as swansea & wigan, so no he wont be going to motherwellLowton to leeds? Not true! just stupid rumoursLowton is a Chesterfield fan.Below average championship is still better than stuck in Div 1Maguire is no where near premier league quality yet, he might have the potential but no experience whatsoever. If Sean Morrison doesn't sign for Town this summer Maguires will be a great target. PS. Enjoy League 1.Lowton is a Mansfield fan


29 May 2012 16:32:40
Lassana Diarra back to Chelsea for a cut price £8m as Jose Mourinho is prepared to do busness.
The Blues are also considering a bid for Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye.

Meanwhile Newcastle boss Alan Pardew is considering a cheeky bid for Man Utd striker Dimtar Berbatov as he wants competition for Cisse and Ba.(9)(14)I thought Pardew was getting Ba dost or
De Jong as CompetitionNot on the Wages Berbatov would command, Let PSG pay for a player they could get for free soon if they want to waste their money.

Meanwhile closer to home Julien Faubert could be on his way into Craven Cottage after his release from West Ham. The super fast Frenchman is said to be happy in london and believes he can still cut it at the top level after a spell in the Championship with the Hammers.(5)(4)Faubert was crap the year before last and doesn't seem to have impressed in the championship - so no chance of going to FulhamIn actualy fact Faubert has not been happy in London for well over a year now, he and his wife want to return to France

ed do you think Jordan Rhodes will stay at Huddersfield now I think he might stay because of promotion(12)(15)He wouldn't join another Championship team but if a prem team comes along with the money then he'll leave.He as said he isnt going to ask to leaveTake roberts he got released from town for a reason over rated and i speak for all town fans when i say good ridance good signing for a league 1 side like blades thoI must take issue with your comments on Roberts. You certainly do not speak for all town fans.
Rhodes situation I feel is 50/50.


29 May 2012 16:23:07
Any Cardiff transfers rumours ed boi??(1)(5)They are going for Jay Rodriguez for 5.5m and Fabianski.


29 May 2012 16:22:44
norwich setting there sights on jay Rodriguez was the funniest thing i ever heard you dont have the money to buy him never mind the debt you are in already and look your most loved player wanted to leave :( Grant Holt. face the facts norwich it going start going down hill from here Arsenal fan Matt(7)(17)"Arsenal fan Matt" - funniest thing you've ever heard? Funnies thing I ever heard was the Arsenal fans thinking they would challenge for the title this season. Nice one son - Bye bye RVP3 3 say no more matt lol hardI don't support Norwich but you are a typical fan of supposedly 'big' teams. In fact, like most arsenal fans you have this arrogance that Borders on insanity believing the smoke and mirrors fables that your board and over rated bad loser of a manager feed the masses of deluded goonersWhat have Norwich and their transfer targets got to do with a nauseating arsenal fan? I didnt see you lot so cocky when Barcelona chased you all over the emirates last year. Stick to your own club and no trophies for seven years or is finishing third what you aspire to these days? And let's not forget, if Norwich hadn't of beaten spurs you would be in the europa league. Keep your childish and puerile posts to yourself.

Jim Dhoc- Celtic fan before you whingeI agree asernal think there as big as man u and man city when in truth there just not. And buy the way Norwich could buy him they just have more sense than to not spend a ridiculous amount of money on himYes we are in loads of dept.....
thats why we hardly have any now :DHey matt how many trophies in 7 years?For 1 Grant Holt does not want to leave, he just wants more money (FACT) 2 Arsenal are the leagues biggest losers as they have had the biggest of all falls from grace so stick that in your rusty brown eye. 3. Norwich have got the money and we are not in debt. 4. we will see at the end of next season when you finish further down the table when you lose the only player that kept you near the top + no one wants to sign for a has been club like arsenal... oh and yes I am a Norwich fan ....OTBCWhy does every one think norwich have big debts

we has 20mil debt before we got promoted and since be decreased to 10 and will continue decreasing

also we can affor rodriquez - past transfer windows we have spent around 15mil and they said same will happen this year.

if you know nothing about the club why postI hope you know after next season Norwich have said all external debt should be paid offNorwich have no money and are in debt ? You don't have a clue , thats why we have around 20m to spend and were building onto our stand
Your an Aresnal fan , once Rvp goes , you have nothing ! , ye will be lucky to finish in the top half without him
Nasri Cesc and now Rvp leaving , Sinking ship!Oh dearie me, another Spud posing to be an Arsenal fan.Holt doesn't want more money, he has been treated unfairly by the clubI'm a norwich fan and I'm sick of our new fans who think were not in debt but really we are. We won't spend big again. We won't make any signing over 3mil. I've been a season ticket holder since I was 9 years old, all the new cocky fans who laughed when we were in.league one and now can just my The abuse of Arsenal is utterly hilarious. Norwich will most likely be fighting relegation next season. Arsenal are one of the biggest teams in Europe.

It's laughable.Well said above about, the new breed of norwich fan, who keep talking rubbish, your only now watching as you want to see big teams, where were you when we were in league 1?Well said !!!Who said that rodriguez or anyone else mentioned is worth over 3 mill? we all know we aren't gonna be spending big bucks so why have you come on here giving it the lifelong Norwich fan hero speech? i've supported norwich all my life and had a season ticket since i was 14 but obviously you're better than i am then.Norwich have external debt; but it is due to be completely covered by the end of next season (this is according to Norwich's CEO, David McNally) McNally has also hinted towards a 20m budget for the upcoming season.
now to the Arsenal fan(s) posting - worry about your own "big club." Norwich were projected to be fighting relegation last season too, and that didn't happen. Focus on trying to keep players that are too big for your club.I agree the poster is an person and this from an Ipswich fan who has no love of the Budgies. If Norwich want to be stupid enough to match Saints 7m offer for Rodriguez that is up to them.

By the way Arsenal you must be rubbish you even lost to us last season!We we sold out our season ticket allocation in League One, in the Championship and again in the Premier League....the amount of carp spouted in this thread is quite unbelievable..

We have minor debt compared to many Premier League clubs. As mentioned above we will have no more external debt by the end of of next season, meaning the only debt owed will be to directors for their loans to us etc...

I don't get the general abuse from one football club to another. Arsenal and Norwich aren't on the same leve whatsoever. Arsenal are, in my opinion, currently underachieving, but then when the financial fair play thing kicks in they could be in a massively strong position. You just can't afford to lose RVP and dro out of the top 4. You also need Wenger to just dip into the market for one or two well known quality players with some experience. You've got one in with Podolski, but you could do with another one or two in my opinion.

As for Norwich...we will have anywhere between £15-20m to spend, but as per last season I imagine some will be spent in summer and some in the January transfer window to "add to what we've already got", as Lambert likes to say...He likes to freshen it up every 6 months or so, and will continue doing that.

I don't think we'll struggle with relegation too badly, but I think it'll be harder this season with the teams coming up potentially having a bit of cash to spend, not to mention a few more teams now using the Norwich/Swansea example of buying from the lower leagues, meaning those players are now in higher demand so their prices are increasing...."Grant Holt's not going anywhere"
He must be very confused then cos he says he is. Not really sure why all those carrot-crunchers are trying to get into a cock-waving competition - they are not even in the same footballing universe as Arsenal.


29 May 2012 16:21:04
completely unconfirmed, likely to be BS but thought i would share anyway - reading preparing to bid for gylfi sig. As i say this is not from me but thought i would share
MrRfc(4)(10)Hasn't he just been comfirmed to be signing with swansea on a permanent basis.. ?He's agreed terms but not completed, will it change if rodgers leaves. as i say i think its BS (but will be happy if its not)
MrRfcBloody well hope so!He signed for Swansea yesterdayHe's signed for Swansea for just under 6 million. It was confirmed late yesterday.So £90 for promotion, plus being taken over money.. Season tickets have gone down in price this year..The transfer to Swansea isn't complete he still has a medical to go through. Plus with Rodgers possibly off to Liverpool that could kill the move. Gylfi will only go to Swansea if Rodgers is there.Nothing is final yet, he hasn't had his medicalSurely if Rodgers goes to Liverpool, he'll try and take Gylfi there? Think about it.


29 May 2012 16:10:21

Now Jermaine Johnson thats an X player i would want backHope they are not in the hunt for Cadamatri - did not meet expectations when at City before.

Wolves will announce this week that there new Director of Football will be Graham Taylor. Taylor will take up the post in a full time capacity and will take ALL of the football related matters out of the hands of Jez Moxey. Leaving him purely to deal with the marketing side of the club.(7)(9)Is this Graham Taylor, chairman of Watford? ...He has stated time and time again that he doesn't want a full time football role again because of his media commitments and family.I wished this were trueThis is the same Graham Taylor that has recently said the only job that would tempt him back is Wolves. This is because he grew up a Wolves fan and failled last time. Have no idea if this rumour is true but those were his wors when commentating on Wolves towards the en of the season.^
Not sure where you got that from, he's a well known Scunny fan. Thanks for playing though, better luck next time.Graham Taylor just resigned as chairman of Watford - to concentrate on other things in football. Primarily his media work but after that who knows...... I would've thought he'd be unlikely to step back into a position like Director of Football though.Taylor a scunny fan loooooool you on crack son ...hes wolves ..and so hope this is true


29 May 2012 16:08:19
Nigel Reo-Coker could be one of the most wanted men in English football. The released Bolton star is currently wanted by no less than 7 Premier League teams as well as having numerous offers from abroad. Old club West Ham and Everton lead the chase for his signature with QPR, Newcastle, Fulham, Norwich and even Tottenham showing interest.(11)(21)Realeased that tells it all,thinks he is better than he actualy is.Only Spurs could offer him a better package than what he was on at Bolton.Why does this post about Reo-Coker read like a press release from his agent or a PR company? Oh, wait a moment...I don't want him at us (everton) I don't think he's that good defiantly not good enough for evertonHe wasnt released, he activated a clause in his contract to leave on a free transfer.Could be one of the most wanted men - but probably isn't. Those teams that might fancy him probably couldn't afford his wages. And the above reads like a press release or agent's statement.Definitely not good enough for the toonNorwich won't pay that Journeyman's wagesFor those of you are thinking hmm he's probs not that good enough for everton/spurs/west ham etc your completlr correct. I'm a bwfc tick holder and the guy talks a good talk but doesn't have one quality. No tackling, heading, running, shooting in him at all. I could go on all day and the guy really needs to stop dragging teams down. Get down to NPOWERWTF?? Southampton have signed him, end of story! No-one is worth 7 million! I wouldn't have thought he would hack it in the Prem!Nigel mediocre leaves Bolton with a very heavy heart ( or was that his pockets ). Didn't take this mersonary to jump ship. Wasn't all that impressed with him spent most of the time sulking. I won't miss him.


29 May 2012 16:06:00
Swindon town are in talks with Bradford city football club as they are interested in Kyle Reid and Omar Daley.(11)(4)Omar Daley isn't a Bradford player!Omar doesnt play for bradford anymore and theres no chance we would sell reid.Omar Daley went to motherwell last year - get the players right before you postOmar daley plays for motherwellOmar daley is at motherwallOmar Daley left Bradford last year!Is that the same Omar Daley who left Bradford LAST summer & now plays for Motherwell?
A little bit of research would be advisable before you try to make a rumour up. FAIL.Swindon would have to pay a lot of money to sign Kyel Reid, best winger in league 2 by some way, and if Omar Daley was to move to L1/L2 he would opt for Bradford, besides he isn't based down south


29 May 2012 16:03:57

Here's one I did not see coming - Adkins and Yakubu have met today at Botley Grange Hotel, just outside of Southampton - I wonder what they were talking about? COYRs(13)(14)Friend of mine works there and no such thing happened.
I'm a Saints fan.No they didn't.What a load of garbage. Have you not hear the J-Rod news or something?!Diet tips.Why would Yak want to go to a st club ? He's a skate and always will be PUPAdkins was asking yakubu if he saw come dine with me last nightLOL Yakubu I will believe it when I see it.
J ROD £6.5m confirmed which puts Yakubu in the not needed pile!"why would Yak want to go to a st club like Southampton"?

Presumably for the same reason he went to portsmouth then.You probably didn't see it coming for the same reason as everyone else. It's a completely made up story!No because he's going to reading as you've already signed jay rod.

Jay Rodriguez is on holiday atm but is set to talk to Southampton about personal terms when he gets back, but Burnley have accepted the offer of £7 million for the striker(18)(4)7 mill for a bloke who is unproven at the top level! Haha, snap there hands of burnley.12 mil from Arsenal for unproven oxlade
Chamberlain. Now in the England Team.
Jealously me thinks!£7m for a young quality goal scorer who will go on to bigger and better clubs is an absolute snip in todays marketWill be interesting to see how much we spend this summer now. I reckon we need another 4 signings to be competitive. Are they throwing money at this? 7mill for one player? I'm speechless. Could be a real chance that we may spend 20mill + and if we do that is amazing news. I'd rather spend 7 on JR than 10 on Hooper all day long btw!That's if he wants to talk to them , he's rejected them once !Top young goal scorer? He hasn't even scored 40 goals in his career yet!Bare in mind despite all of his apperances he has only really been in the starting XI for a season and a half id say 80% of his appearances have been 5minute cameos before 10/11 seasonGood player but in my opinion 7m is a massive gamble for saints.^^
And? Oxlade Chamberlain essentially played half a season for us and went for 12mill. It's about what's hopefully to come. Not whats been!7m probably is too much , but i think Saints have to bid high or he will go else where .Every player adkins has brought into the club, no matter how much or how less has all played a big part in our back to back promotions. so if its 7mil were spending so be it!Jay rod scored 5 in our play off win season.
broke a leg early on in prem season{RESERVES} scored 15 in our 1st season back in the championship, and 21 this last season. When i was at school that totalled to 41 career goals

Reading fc takeover has just been approved by the premier league so therefore the takeover is completed. let the new signings start!!(13)(9)Confirmed on the Reading FC website.Liar. Reading are poor, they got about £100 million, most of which will be spent on stadium upgrades. They'll get the money back from hiking up tickets and season ticket prices. Trust me, im a Norwich fan and it broke the bank.Only £100 million? thats £100 million more than norwich have!So Reading are backed by multimillionaire and his multibillionaire father, yet we only have £100million. I think someones a little jealous. However it is true that most of our money will be going into improving the clubs infrastructure and not on players.Why plough money into reading why don't these rich people buy clubs with loyal fans and a club with a fan baseDear mr Norwich fan. Season ticket renewals were actually cheaper at Reading for next season than this season. So go and eat some humble pie.Hows he a liar, season ticket prices havent been hiked up and reading have always been good with there money, just cos u are skint dont mean we areI can't understand why they bought reading when there is 40 clubs outside the prem bigger than themBoris Zingarevich (who is involved before people start saying "It's only Anton") is a billionaire. I'm sure we'll be fine Mr. Norwich fan.Season tickets have been kept the same cost. In many cases lower for 'early bird renewals'.. And sir John is worth more than £100 million alone.. So with him and Anton? Now who's lying!"Why plough money into reading why don't these rich people buy clubs with loyal fans and a club with a fan base"

Why does the term bitter and twisted spring to mind. What these guys have bought is a practically debt free football club with bags of potential. Obviously buying a football club with lots of debt and deluded fans continuously living in the past doesn't appeal.To the guy who doesn't understand Zingarevic's interest: He went to university in Reading - leading to his supporting of the club (behind Dynamo Moscow)Green eyes for as far as the eyes can see ' why a club like reading?'... Would that be one with good infrastructure? Well known and respected academy? One placed in a booming town with young families and high employment rates ? Large potential wealthy catchment area... Or is it because we're not a dying dragon like half the so called 'big clubs'They brought Reading because we are a well run club with zero debt. We have a good infrastructure already and because Anton was educated in Reading and was a regular at Elm Park.Maybe Deliah can cook up some money for poor Norwich... oh wait, thats not possible. Shame that.I don't get why people are can't understand why TSI have bought into Reading. Its a good club with decent facilities and Anton is a big fan. More to the point, to say there are 40 clubs outside the PL bigger than Reading is just stupid. Theres more to club stature than stadium capacity and big name playersIn 20 years time we'll be a bigger club than Norwich ever will be, I bet Ipswich will even be bigger than youWhy plough money into Reading? as stated earlier, good team, good infrastructure, good fans and only big team in their county, pretty sound bet to be fair, and to all those saying plastic fans essentially,sorry guys but not so, ive been a fan through thick and thin as have most of our guys, hows that plastic? the fact is readings essentially still a young club, not too long ago we were a club playing at a small elm park ground since moving to the mad stad we have had sapce to accomodate fans but a larger force is we are a community club meaning a lot of our fans are still growing up, put it this way would rather be a good community team like the royals than a team like man city who just cause they are now winning are getting those 'fans' who used to be the man u supporters etc (the i like the good clubs despite no connection types)"To the guy who doesn't understand Zingarevic's interest: He went to university in Reading - leading to his supporting of the club (behind Dynamo Moscow)"

Actually Anton is a Zenit fan. But yes, supposedly he was educated there. Also because it's in one of the fastest growing parts of the country, near to London, relatively new stadium, finances in order, room to expand the stadium, unoffensive club with few bitter rivals, good academy system, good scouting network... Reading are a far more desirable club than a lot of people make them out to be.

Jay Rodriguez is coming to Southampton after a 7 million pound offer has been accepted.
Source: BBC Sport(22)(8)Get inBid has been accpeted but he turned you down before. Far from done !Im a saints fan and it only means burnley have accepted offer dont mean he is coming as he is still on his hols so personal terms still need to be agreed with him, he may want silly money or may prefer to wait but is looking a strong possabilityHe is on holiday, but his agent is dealing with it on his behalf. Its different this time round as we are a Premier League team so wether he turned us down or not last time has no affect on this occasion.The offer may of been accepted but as the above have allready said personal terms have yet to be discused. There is a rumour that he wanted a reported 40k a week last time which is why saints pulled out on the deal but them now being in the prem i would imagine they would be able to negotiate on wages.
I would also like to point out to all those Burley fans that said he would never be sold for under 10 million that shuts you lot up then dont it.Burnley fans said he was worth 10 million because Wickham was. Weve said all along that our board would sell for nothing because they're cheap you dougnut ! and as for the 40k a week business i can assure you that's false. If there was ever a play not driven by money it's Jay Rodriguez. He's only on about 10 at Burnley.My message to Burnley fans is this. IF Rodriguez signs its because its right for all parties but wish you best of luck. As Saints fans, we're used to developing players and seeing them sold on and know its frustrating. What will be will be but best of luck.Snap there hands of for that, Austin is much betterHave a friend who knows jay rod and i know for a fact he does not want to go that far south so i assume if a more northerly premiership club competes with saints offer he wont go to southampton.

Sources from the far east - Singapore Billionaire wants to buy Leeds United. Bates is asking too much but I think this could still go through. Transfer kitty £15m+ to get us back in the PL.(16)(16)Here come the dodgy rumours!, pretty good sources seem to indicate one of the main consortiums seems to headed a North American group, although it seems it is not Maple Leaf Sport and Entertainment Ltd. as many rumours state. Source Phil Hay- Yorkshire Evening Post.You wish.Good things like that don't happen to us though - would be great if it turns out to be true!!
PeteMOTThis isnt a Leeds fan.But spending
15 million wouldnt be good for your club
becuase players with higher price tags
want higher wages you should
only spend that kind of money when your
a secure team in the premiership becuase
as Wolves,Blackburn and Bolton are going to find out they wont be able to afford the wages and will have release players which will cost them money if they are still contracted.The way forward
is teams such as Derby county who buy
cheap young players and make money off
them.This is what arsenal do players such as nasri and fabregas have gone for 10x what they were bought for.Narsi was bought £10-15m and when for £24mBates won't sell.
Seen it before, never puts a price on the club and then says they have not offered enough. Even Radio Leeds had the same opinion this morning. This is his cash cow, creaming all the Leeds supporters cash and living the life in Monaco at their expense.So why has Ken named his price then - 80 million?

Who are you gonna sign?.... thought soWe're buying Rodriguez. Why would we buy another striker? Do we need 6? Especially as we only have 1 keeper, 1 decent left back and 1 decent left midfielder! Utter nonsense!When Villa have a manager that doesn't use him as a winger - he'll be good again!
He is NOT leaving. Villa supporter, started here & will end here!If he goes anywhere it will be to link up with O'neill again at sunderland but swansea? thats a good one bud

Norwich City are about to spring an audacious last minute attempt to sign Burnley's striker Jay Rodriquez from under the noses of new Premiership rivals Southampton.(23)(20)I bet we don't.As a Norwich fan, I wouldn't want us to make an bid unless it was under £4 million. He isn't worth £7 million, and I hope we don't follow Southampton and put in a similar bid.As a Norwich fan you won't have a clue what Rodriguez is worth as you don't see him play often enoughGood player Rodriquez but not worth £7 million too much of a riskEasily worth 7mil.Seriously mate he is not 7 mil7 million is a joke! papiss cisse was only 10!Hope we (norwich) bid for hooper. Let southampton buy rodgriquez. 7mil for him lol. Could get hooper for that.Under £4M? Budget a bit tight at Norwich? Yakubu only cost Blackburn £1M. Right up your street : Getting on a bit but life in the old legs yet, cheap and might keep you in the Prem for another year. Saints have longer term ambitions and young talent like Rodrigues is exactly what we need. We've wanted him since at least last summer and know his worth. Good luck with Hooper. We apparently bid £7M for him.No way Rodriguez is worth £7m
Hernandez was bought for the exact same price and its clear to see the difference in class
Saints are getting ripped off on this one {Ed003's Note - The fee is 'up' to £7m with potential add ons}Rodrigues is a quality player but so is Shane Long who hit 28 for Reading before being sold for 4.5m which makes 7m seem a bit on the steep side, only time will tell I guess
Of course the budget is tight, we are still a small club with real community connections and we have worked our way out of our debt instead of relying on a foreign investor.
As for longer term ambitions do you think you are the only team with ambitions? And do yo uhonestly think the only way to compete is paying over inflated fees and over inflated wages?No u can't Celtic want at least 10 million for hooper , and yes for 10 million they got cisse but without knowing how well he would play in the premiership , 7 million for rodriguez and after he's scored 10 goals in the prem will you still be saying that ?Norwich fans don't see enough of Jay Rodriguez? Well I'm a Norwich fan who lives just outside of Burnley and I often go to see Burnley play, and he is not worth £7 mil. Even my friends who are Burnley fans think he is overrated and isn't even worth £4 mil.Dont let the celtic fans hear you say that. They seem to feel passionatley:L i really think hooper is overrated, and jay rod will be amazing or an expensive flop.I am Burnley Fan and been to every game for a long time now and I've never seen such a talent, he links up play, he scores goals, he sets up goals and he's still only 22! He's going to be missed and I think with the right service like at Southampton he'll go along way and I hope he does really well for Southampton and eventually gets a call-up to the England side.Funny that now burnley have accepted the fee, the burnley fans are now starting to say he is overrated where they were previously saying how he was worth 10 million at least?So really your a burnley fan then not a Norwich fan !If Saints get Jay Rod it will be a good signing, according to most Burnley fans he's a very good prospect and potentially a top premier league striker, 7m maybe a bit high but Chelsea paid 50m for Torres and Liverpool paid 35m for Carroll and neither were prolific scorers this year. So is 7m for a 22 year old good value?How did the young boy from Ipswich do at Sunderland? 9m he cost them didn't he? Did he score one league goal this past season? not quite sure, as I don't think he really played so haven't heard much about him. Players that cost a lot from the championship often end up being flops. have fun wasting money you can't afford to.I like Burnley and support Southampton. Pretty pleased all round with this deal. I feel Burnley are getting a decent price for one of their star players and we are getting an exciting, motivated young player with great work ethic and bags of talent.

It is a bit hit-or-miss but to really make it in the prem you have to have to make a couple of signings and with a bit of luck hope they come through. Otherwise we would just be signing Yakubu and struggle to make waves in the prem. I like this signing, it shows ambition and commitment to young english players, whilst not ripping off Burnely (a club I have a lot of admiration for).

Hopefully Jay will do well in the prem, and hopefully Burnley can put the £7million to good use and mount a challenge for the playoffs next season.

Having said all that, we can't get carried away. This is only early days and it is far from being a sealed deal. Hopefully it comes through but I hope we are prepared with a plan B.

Stoke are after Manchester United's young striker Will Kean on loan as it looks ever more likely that Lakaku will stay at Chelsea following the exit if Drogba.(10)(9)If Chelsea sign hulk why would he won't to stay there as third choiceHe will stay at Chelsea because he will want to try to impress new managemnt (or RDM) in a full pre-season to try to stake his claim as a Chelsea semi-regular. Could be a last day deal though for Stoke.

Rumours that Surman might be making a come back to Saints from Norwich, and before Norwich fans are like he loves norwich. he likes Norwich but hes a southampton lad and has been trying to get back here since wolves and he still is trying now(19)(17)Rumours ur trying to startSaints fan here - I know Andrew loves Saints, but I havent heard this "rumour".Would be a great return but I can't see it happening :(Surman told me at a durys benfit match he would be staying at norwich. Qoute how could i leave after last couple seasons we have had. Dream on mr saintThis rumourisnt true, but to the post above..Surman isnt going to turn around and say to you "I want to leave" is he? Of course hes going to say what he said.Someone making up rumors again to get bites, nice try but you failed.I went to school with drew and still keep in contact. He has told me he would love to finish his career at st. Marys but that doesn't mean he'll be coming any time soon.Hmm his family live here, he was born here and sorry to say he still wants to come back to saints but we dont want him as we have Adam lallana who is ten times the player Surman is :DYou can have him, he aint premiership class anywayHe wouldn't play anymore games at saints than he does at Norwich as he'd be behind Lallana for left mid. So can't see it!Lallana is not fit to lace surmans boots. He will never be prem class, to be fair he did look good ag the likes brentford doncaster^^
Ludicrous comment. Surman was good for saints but Lallana is a far better player!Southampton can have him if they want. Hes been good for us this season, but he really doesnt have the pace for a wide role if we are to move forwards. I think we will invest in another couple of wingers this year. With the center already being stocked with the likes of Howson and Wes who play in the advanced role i see Surman being pushed out of the picture a little.

If he wants to go back to Southampton so much (im not so sure he does as hes enjoyed his most successful season ever with us in a settled team) then he can go.^Lallana is better than Surman! Surman is a solid midfielder. Lallana is a creative spark and going to do big things in the prem if the team can work around him.

Don't post things you know nothing about! Saints fans have watched them both week in week out so can make the best judgement - lallana is in a different league to surman, get over it.Why is it a choice between the two? Don't saints want to attack the PL with a squad. What if Lallana gets injured or suspended."Lallana is not fit to lace Surman's boots"
Congratulations. You've just shown that you know nothing about football. Well done. Absolutely clueless!Lallana came runner up to player of the season (our rickie lambert taking first place). he will make defenders look ste in the prem so i cant see surman stopping him at all..My friend lives next door to surman and he is loving life in norwich and has just had a baby so i wouldnt think he would move away.

nick powell close to signing for manchester united then going on loan to stoke city for the season been told by big source at stoke(14)(20)Don't think this is allowed under PL rules is it? Stoke tried to get Lukaka on loan from Chelsea last summer after he had just signed from them but that was not allowed ...Powell is a huge Stoke fan but rumour is that he will go to a Championship club if he does sign for Man ULukaku would have been joined a third club in the same season. Chelsea agreed to let Stoke have him IF the FA agreed on the basis that Lukaku hadn't played for Chelsea but the request was denied. Man U are entitled to sign Powell and then loan him but don't think Stoke will be his destination as he's far from guaranteed playing time. More likely he'll go down a division.1)Powell is NOT a huge Stoke fan,him and his family are all avid Crewe fans and always have been
2)Pulis is well known for his love of youngsters that are untested at Prem level isn't he?? (Ben Marshall anyone? Arismendi and Cuvelier haven't had much of a run out either have they?)
3) Some Stoke "Fans" on here just embarass the rest of us!It is allowed, the Lakaku deal fell through because of the 3 club rule, stoke tried to appeal as he'd never actually played for Chelsea that season. So the Powell move could go ahead?Why would Stoke sign Powell when they already have Flo Cuvelier ready to break into the 1st team. It'll be a big enough shock (as a Stoke fan) in Pulis allows 1 under 25yo into his squad let alone 2!The ruling is that a player can not play for 3 clubs in a season. If MUFC sign Powell, its in close season, therefore he can sign for anyone next season on loan

Lukaku had played in Belgium and then signed for Chelsea (and played for them). Stoke tried to sign but knocked back on the 3 club rule

Hope this helpsPulis seems quite happy playing a keeper under 25 but don't let the facts get in the way'3) Some Stoke "Fans" on here just embarass the rest of us!'

I think most (obviously not you) have noticed someone spamming the Stoke threads with ridiculous rumours and hoofball comments. Seems he got the bite.....

Huddersfield will sign Sean Morrison from Reading after making a huge contribution since signing on loan in January.

Sigurdsson will never sign, neither would nano, Kebe won't leave and Federici is one of the best keepers in the country! Why would he leave for a club in the championship when he is now in the premier league and is worth about 8 million!!!No he has said he wants to stay at Reading but he is not sure whether that will be possible now that Reading are in the Premier League.Worth 8 million? Kompany was cheaper than that haha! Also, siggurdsson is a swansea player nowNo hes not a swansea player yet. he might not go if rodgers leaves

Huddersfield Town have received interest from fellow promotion acheivers Charlton - Danny Higginbottom in a swap deal for Bradley Wright Phillips. Both Players are said to be keen - Watch this space!!(3)(22)It's Kallum not Danny and it will never happen!Hhahah only if you gave charlton 500,000 as well then maybe but other than that you can keep dreamingIt is kallum not danny,haha
and give charlton 500,000 aswell ha for a guy who's proved he can't cut it in championship and never got that more than 20+ in lg1 DOUBT IT! we dont even want him and have just bought KALLUMBradley Wright-Phillips = 22 goals. Kallum Higginbottom = 0 goals. How is that a straight swop in ANY persons view? More likely to be Jordan Rhodes! (And, no, I'm NOT suggesting that would happen!)Wright phillips isnt fit to lace rhodes boots and higgs going nowhere keep dreaming"guy who's proved he can't cut it in championship" - Yeah you would know as you've been watching your team play a lot of championship football LMAO.So if your teams in championship does mean cant watch prem league.......... thought not! he couldnt cut tho could he? 22 goals for southampton in 111 games, (111 games wow) and 17 goal for plymouth IN 3 YEARS haha some of the came in LEAGUE 1 oh yeah prolific isnt he! hahahhhahahhhhahaThat's irrelevant, he played a lot of games on the wing in the championship so he's likely to not have a great goalscoring record.Don't me laugh, a lower division Northern donkey like Higginbottom for BWP, I don't think so somehow.Im a charlton fan, but agree BWP is not good enough for higher level. You could argue any main striker in a team that is top of the league should be scoring that volume of goals. Half of them were laid on a plate for him and there were so many more he could of had but missed. I would let him go!I am also a Charlton fan and I agree that BWP's goals to chances ratio is awful. He is a better player now than when he was in the Championship with Southampton and the rest of them. However there are much better, more prolific strikers around. Kermorgant is a better player and I can see BWP being a rotation option of we get one of the strikers we are supposedly afterOh dear treacle even your own fans agree he's not good enough! haha

Experience will be key to developing younger promising players and Simon Grayson want to mould his own team with an interesting blend of youth and experience for a stable first season back in the second level.(9)(17)Nicky Maynard is at West Ham and just gained promotion to the Premiership !!Maynards at westham an ross mcCormack would cost alot more than thatGlad someone pointed that outWill somebody please sign the awful Jason Puncheon,please.Since when did maynard play for southampton?It has been confirmedNonsense Steve Davies is £1milliion plusGeorge Boyd should cost about £2mBoyd won't be cheap!Boyd would cost around the million mark mate, think you're away with the fairies mateGeorge Boyd isn't on a free and its not going to be a small fee either. I'd say around 1-2 million. Dream on HuddsCant see McCormack coming for that cheap, even though Bates is APPARENTLY selling the club. I would also like to see pelts back but i like Hunt better.Million is small fee to Huddersfield !!!Maynard plays for west ham, and why would west ham sell him for 2.5m when they recentley signed im for more than thatGet lee back at rb and push hunt up onto right Wing and play Callum just behind Rhodes and NovakNo chance we need to strngthen the team or we will be fighting to stay up all season


29 May 2012 11:55:08
So the truth is out Joel Ward did not choose Palace over Leeds!

Leeds Utd did not stump up the fee because they are in talks on a huge takeover deal that is at a very advanced stage.

If this deal is finalized then their transfer targets will change significantly and Joel Ward is not the level of player they will be looking to sign.(15)(16)Ken Bates will never sell Leeds. Leeds have no money and will have to make do with free transfer signings.Yeah ok mate more like Bates is a very tight chairmanThats one way to put a spin on a player rejecting youAnother leeds fan cant take being a small club nowSecond rate leeds, with a second rate team, ken will always feather his own nest first,he wont sell as the money coming in is a nice nest egg for his family


29 May 2012 11:41:01
Palace linked with Sammy Clingan. FACT(12)(11)Clingan would impact the progression of Kyle De Silva so DF would not sign or be remotely interested in him


29 May 2012 11:37:58
Ex Brighton midfielder Alan Navarro is linked with Peterbrough and Watford.(4)(4)I wouldnt have thought so. We have far to many midfielders as it isNot at watford thankyou we have too many good central midfielders ,wouldn't get a look inWatford dont have good midfielders hahaObviously you have no knoledge on watford football club and that is not what
we stated, we said we have a very strong central midfield in buaben,hogg and eustace who manu clubs have expressed interest in. Also we only have one of the most desired young players in england, sean murray scoring 7 in 12 from the wing turning down a move to city and tottenham. Who do u support clever fella?If you are a brighton fan cast you mind back to our game, where do didnt seem to touch the ball in the first half!I support saintsSaints were lucky to go up, your a two man team and because of that your coming straight back down. anyway lambert wont cut the premier league so keep dreaming.People said the same thing about holt but look what he did and alot of people said that norwich, swansea and qpr would go back down but they didnt so you should think before you make a comment like that because if we stay up you would look like a idiotMate i dont think saints are a two man team alot more players contributed for us like billy sharp coming in half way through the season and banging in some goals and then we got frazier richardson who was among the most assists in the league and jos hoiveld who scored some key goals as a defender and kelvin davies who was the best keeper in the championship so dont start saying that we are a two man teamCrewe alexandras nick powell is more desired than sean murray by the manchester clubsNot navorro hes rubbish watford and peterbrough dont need him =WATFORD HAVE TOO MANY midfielders as it isManu clubs are not interested in all your midfielders you person when have they said that they want hogg, eustace and buaben and murray


29 May 2012 11:36:26
Leeds united to sign Craig Noone from Brighton.(5)(19)Can you afford 1.4 million that's the offer we turned down fron Cardiff
Straight exchange for McCormack possible


29 May 2012 11:35:44
Ipswich have agreed personal terms with Macclesfield right back, Elliot Hewitt, who is undergoing a medical for the Championship side this morning. The full-back, who has been compared to a right-footed Gareth Bale, interested many top sides in January, including Arsenal, chelsea and Everton, before his season was cut short by an injury. Hewitt is believed to be confirmed as Ipswich's first summer transfer at some time today or tomorrow.(10)(8)If he interested arsenal everton spurs he would not be at ip5w1ch he was interesting alfreton braintree and hyde get ur facts rightJust because he was intresting someone dosent mean they're gonna sign him.... One game this season he had 34 scouts watching him! Dosent sound like a player intresting hydeHe signed so you two look like mugs now...


29 May 2012 11:34:28
Barnsley have started to scour Europe for new recruits after being priced out of the domestic market.....
One target is FK Jablonec 97 frontman David Lafata, who broke the Czech league scoring record last season, although numerous other clubs are tracking him.(8)(2)A absolute great signing bfc webScouring Europe? scouring the sunday league pub teamsSunday morning players are better than some of the so called championship players I've seen this year!!!!!!L


29 May 2012 11:33:38
Leeds have confirmed that they are talking to a consortium over a possible takeover bid , source It is rumoured the leader of the consortium is the owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs. This would be the reason that Joel Ward did not join the Whites as the talks would mean a temporary transfer embargo.(7)(11)I always saw it as a choice of Ipswich or Leeds and he would have waited if he had really wanted to join Leeds, but this may be the reason you couldn't or wouldn't pay the transfer fee! Palace was just closer to home, bless^^ Heard Ward always favoured Leeds....This is coming from a Canadian...i have not heard of anything about the owner investing in the club....on top of that the "owners" are made up of a group and already own the the hockey team as well as the Toronto football team(Argonauts) and the baseball team(Blue Jays) as well as Toronto FC. they all are looking for money to be added in each team which they are not getting, and all but the Blue Jays are having some bad times, so i think they would not try or think about owning another club from across the sea.Its not msl talking fact


29 May 2012 11:29:22
Elliot Hewitt undergoing a medical today at Ipswich Town(8)(6)


29 May 2012 11:00:42

for a future coach rolePleassseee NoHeard he got injured entered the medical room: out for season.^ haha yes ;)Why would he sign for the dinglesWhy would ipswich want to sign him he is passed itHeskey definitely not, need a tall striker with something to play for


29 May 2012 10:58:44
Arsenal have asked to speak with Nigel De Jong's agent about the prospect of a transfer to Arsenal. My source is a coach at Arsenal that does Soccer Camps for kids in the borough and he communicated with people inside the club.(4)(10)Or is your source the BBC rumours page who are running the same storey?


29 May 2012 10:56:05
Ipswich have tabled a combined 1.7 million bid for Matt Lowton and Harry Maguire from Sheffield Utd. Fee will increase depending on apperances and success. Also talks have begun with Brad Guzan but satill at a very early stage.(12)(10)Where will Ipswich get this money?Im a town fan and this is news to me. Poster 1 don't worry we have money we just waste it every yearContray to what people think Ipswich do have money available for transfers especially if the bids are for younger players with potential re-sale value.Why on earth do people say Ipswich have no money? Would be very good signings though.Like £5000 on jordan rhodes and £150000 recouped what a deal


29 May 2012 10:54:15
Aaron Wildig signs for Shrewsbury from Cardiff City.
Official on Shrewsweb(13)(1)Good luck to him , deserves a chance. Best of luck Aaron CCFC.Got a good football brain. Just want him to

29 May 2012 10:48:20
Stoke are looking at signing Arouna Kone following Tony Pulis & co's scouting trip to Spain at the tail end of last season. Fuller and Jones still set to leave.(10)(4)But dont they play FOOTball in Spain?Stoke have shown an interest in him but he isn't their number one target. Expect a major signing in the striker department in the next 3 weeks. Stoke are also interested in a player from Villarreal."But dont they play FOOTball in Spain?" Yawn!Ignore the child who has the fixation with Stoke on every thread.........shows how good his own club is :-) A few to leave Stoke in the next 3 weeks then a few good signings


29 May 2012 10:38:05
leicesters Sol Bamba linked with a move to turkish side Trazposour for a reported £1 million(12)(3)


29 May 2012 10:34:05
Arouna Kone to chose between QPR and stoke as a 10 million bids been accepted by both clubs(12)(10)If he choses stoke then it will be great for him to play with crouch but knowing stoke he will pick QPR and fail a medical at stoke and he will be the next ba :(Ummmmmmm......Hes on a free!Ba started like a house on fire at the Toon but only scored something like 1 in 15 after no great miss, 16 in 34 in total.Stoke , £10m, 1 player ! Apart from crouch the most they've spent on a player is about£ 2.5m!Stoke; the only club that could fail Ba on a medical yet play Fuller and give Sidibe a new contract.2.5 mil well ses all u no about football .. palacios 8mil , jones 9mil jerome 4milBa failed a medical at more than one club so unlucky on that one and the Fuller deal was based on appearances ( 500k) and why would Sidibe need a medical to extend his contract? Pulis has already said that it's more as a bonus to him for his services and to help him out. As for Crouch being Stoke's only player over 2.5 million.............have you got all day while I reel them off?


29 May 2012 10:17:22
Crawley set to make a double swoop on Leyton Orient for Matt Spring & George Porter.(4)(8)Both rubbish! {Ed020's Note - gotta agree with you there, neither of them have any prolific skills, part from matt, he did have a "spring" in his step last time i watched him}Spring is a possibility but porter has said that he wants to play at a higher levelBoth players way to good for crawley, fail !Not you can say 2 good for Crawley who just signed x orient keeper Paul jonesA possibility. Both seemingly out of contract.'Not you can say 2 good for Crawley who just signed x orient keeper Paul jones'

Who rejected a pro contract and signed for Exeter in the conference (at the time).


29 May 2012 10:03:07
curtis davies or roger johnson will be joining norwich this summer with similar fee's around the 2/3million. wages will be the only issue in either of the transfers.(13)(9)I dont know how more times we have to tell Norwich fans C Davies is worth at least 5mAs a Wolves fan, I hope, for your sake, that you are talking two-thirds of a million, not £2m to £3m.Over rated pub player with a glass foot! Not half as good as he thinks he is!^^ Davies i mean5m? lol. and anyway, it's not what the players worth, it's how much the minimum would be to get them. Davies won't want to stay, he will want to come to Norwich. you will take what you get. he's probably worth 3m at the mostAs a Norwich fan i really Don't want Roger Johnson signing for us. didn't you pay something ridiculous like 8 million for him?No, we paid about £4.5M for him, but even that has proven to be way too much.Hate Norwich but if Davies transfer goes through, will be glad to see him finally get a chance. He got wasted at Villa and too good for championship!Why do you hate Norwich? What have we done to you?! Beat you too often?Davies deffoDavis is looking forward to the new season at birmingham and is worth more than 5 millionNonsense. Lambert would never sign someone like Johnson. Terrible player terrible professional.Davies is not going anywhere, hughton intends to keep best players and Davies was the best defender in the champ last year. Also I don't think Norwich should take the risk with Johnson, he turns up drunk and argues with team mates


29 May 2012 09:53:17
Reading takeover bid has finally been given the go ahead. To be announced today/tomorrow

Reading in talks with Leicester about
resigning Matt Mills for about 3 million
wishes he hadn't left in 1st place(7)(22)So do all leicester fansHe won't re-sign for us. The fans hate him.Wishes he doesn't come back. All at RFC.No thanks. We can do much better. Let Celtic have himWe need to do what he did to us and stick the middle finger up at himPlease take him!!OK taken on his ability alone he is a good defender and god knows what pearson was thinking not including him for half the season, ok he makes rash challanges and all but at the same time he commands the defence well and has decent distribution, saying that with pearcy and gorkss, mills will be limited to a bench player, probably not worth his while returning, i for one dont hate him for the finger gesture cause our fans were giving him st in the first place, i guess hes a marmite player, u love him or hate him, i think hes great but would be wasted at reading now.No thanks!

Prestons iain hume to sign for tranmere on a free transfer as the canadian has hinted that he has favoured a move from deepdale to the merseyside club to end his career.
former tranmere player enoch showunmi is being closely watched by notts county and crawley town. the two clubs are beleived to be fond of showunmi and are confident of landing the target man.(1)(8)He isnt freeIain hume already said that he isn't going anywhere until his contract was up and his contract still has 2 years left on it so this is falseHume is under contract how can it be a free transferUtter nonesense, Hume is NOT available on a free! IF he leaves it will be for a reasonable amountHume is not transfer listed and has another year left on his contract it would be political suicide if Risdale was to let him go on a free he is the clubs favourite player.Doubt Notts would sign Showumni after the season hes hadNo notts wouldnt want him now rumours are it might be mike grella for notts

29 May 2012 09:14:59
C gunter will sign for norwich city on ist july. To hudd town fan, only player we wanted to sign from u came to norwich. He was by far best player u had, wich he proved in prem last season. Thank u very much. Ncfc matt

Otbc(9)(9)Unless you are willing to pay nearer the £3m mark, you will not get him, as Gunter has several clubs after him and one of those will beSo you didnt post that norwich were tracking hunt and rhodes lets be honest both would stroll straight into your team and i'm not just saying that cos i'm a town fan, n i agree pilks was our best player WHEN you took himand i'm glad he's done well, i've been watchin him all yearRhodes is a BIG gamble and the £8M quoted for him is plain stupid, as for walking straight into Norwich 1st eleven, dream on, he would start on the subs bench at best, and frankly I suspect clubs will sit back and let him play for Huddersfield in Championship and then launch serious bids in Dec transfer window if he proves himself in championship. Lets face it he did not produce for Ipswich, so there is some doubt over his ability to step up to premier level.
Perhaps a premier league club will launch a bid of £3M + add on's to test the water, but no manager in premiership is going to gamble £8M on a player who has scored 40 goals in Div 1.I hope not i'd rather he'd stayed but the price will only be more next window when he's banging em himCan anyone who writes these transfer lists please speak English. Get it in your head that Grant Holt IS NOT LEAVING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

29 May 2012 08:59:54
Regarding the Southampton Jay Rodriguez case I have it on good authority there was a bid accepted last summer but he wanted astronomical wages and was turned down by Southampton!(4)(12)So not true, he dint want to leave burnley that season in hope burnley got promoted and he does not want to go down south.No you are wrong he wanted 40k a week Saints pulled out of the deal.As far as I am aware, we never even had a bid accepted before.

There was a £5million offer last year that was turned down though

Strong rumour that Jermaine Johnson will become a Bradford City player within the next 2 weeks.He's turned down Carlise to return to Valley Parade.(4)(16)I work in Barnsley and heard this on the radio last night aswellWhy would he turn the contract down that we have offered and go to BradfordBecause we're a bigger club than both SWFC and CUFC?I also heard this aswellWhy would he turn league 1 for league 2If he is signing for bradford city then were is your proofAre you been serious how is Bradford a bigger club than Wednesday? Are you real. Didn't he have sense leaving Bradford for Wednesday in the first place lolMug,wednesday fan!I am Bradford fan and we are not bigger than Wednesday but are a lot bigger than Carlisle, my sources say he wants to leave Wednesday to play every week, not guaranteed starter next season for Wednesday. Bradford biggest club in league 2 and 95% of league 1Like to see someone has sense. You ara a lot bigger than Carlisle yes that's true. Me personally don't want to see jj leave. He is a player that plays well when the teams doing well. Before he got injury at beggining of season he was on fire and it took him a while to get back to form. He is a real threat when he is on form. Good luck to Bradford though hope you finally get back to where you want to be.


29 May 2012 07:42:27
Latest on Swindon Town.There in Financial problems yet again,so called mega rich Board are withdrawing support.
Will not give Dicanio a blank cheque so he will be off.
Last week was published accounts were late and given 90 days to submit.
so called signings lee holmes has decidecd on Preston and Billy Bodin is stalling on signing a 2 year deal.
Also latest is payments to HMRC are late so not looking rosey for Swindon town,also said to be looking for solid manager who know's div 1(19)(15)How is Chris Wilder today? Has he lined up Beano's replacement yet?Another oufc fan, like a broken record, if you have any true facts about the finances please give your source orvwhere you got your info from. Can't find anything from hmrcI am an Oxfod fan...I hope you are not in trouble financially because last season you played some good football. How we beat you twice is still a mystery. But...You have overspent and that is always a worry because the funding, as we know, can always be withdrawn. Not sure why Holmes has gone to Preston as he said after he left us he was always wanting to come back to Swindon....So, I think thee are a few isues but then again, most clubs have. I alo think however, if there i money issues, PDC will be off. Good luck in Div 1, you are there on merit (God that pains me to say it)You're obviously an Oxford fan trying to stir. The only bit of that post that is correct is Bodin stalling on a 2 year deal...........that's because we can't guarentee him 1st team football.When I read posts like this, I always think that an Oxford fan has worked out how to use a computer. Lee Holmes signed for Preston for more money and also we have loads of left wingers anywayOy, Oxford boy. So Di canio has just announced his contract extension to 2015. He is happy to stay beceause he has been guarantee funds to challenge for promotion. Do you think you might admit you were wrong?Withdrawing support? Ha ha...PDC has signed a new two year deal, the board have backed him 100%, he intends to bring in 7 or QUALITY players....Oh yes...we have SUCH problems don't we?? typical Oxford have next to nothing to celebrate so you decide to try and stir up rubbish about never had a clue what was going on...the REAL interesting news is Oxfords money issues isn't it? looks like the little Rugby ground share has fell flat because your three sided library is "Not up to Rugby standards" thats funny!!

Somebody at work mentioned that Brighton have made an offer or enquired about Leeds United's Ross McCormack with possibility of Craig Noone going as part of the deal.(7)(11)The first part makes sense as a replacement for Hoskins assuming he has burned his bridges but if the second part is true then no-one has told nooney

Paper talk this morning also links Brighton with Danny Swanson, Alan Smith and Chris Morgan.(2)(9)Alrready confirmed not going for Swanson and Morgan is 34 so if he came it would be as a defensive coach rather than as a player. Smith meets our needs though not sure he would be a popular addition to many fans.

HA HA!Not sure why you are all fighting over him he did nothing for the whole of last season!!Maybe like all people he OBVIOUSLY wants to BETTER HIMSELF! A fresh CHALLENGE!Taylor signed for Millwall today


29 May 2012 07:28:24
Tom Kennedy will leave Leicester City this week and join Peterborough United for first team football.(16)(6)Don't blame him. This appears very likely as it's being widely reported that Leicester are interested in signing Nicky Shorey as back-up for Konchesky. On performance I'd rather have Kennedy.I think if Kennedy was coming to Posh he would have done so last season whilst he was on loan here


29 May 2012 07:27:25

I posted about Sean Rigg from Port Vale Football Club.(14)(13)We'll soon find out then!Interesting.That's odd because i posted about Sean Rigg...Ainsworth is signing for port vale. Seen at the ground shaking hands with Micky Adams looking very happy. Done deal!

Derby striker Stephen Davies will sign for Charlton.(2)(17)Hes not moving to londonHe wont hes moving north to leeds as they have offered him a deal and hes going norht becuase of family issuesIts not leeds its bolton.As warnock wasnt prepared to pay 800k for himWhat do you mean offered him a deal hes still got a year left people need to remember this.He could still be a derby player next season clough thinks its better for the club to sell him now.He wants to move NOW due to personal reasons which indicates a move north not south Clough actually wants to keep him but it won't happen as Clough reluctantly has to let him go! Leeds couldn't afford him!He's not going to Charlton thats for sure any Charlton fan would know why.He'll go where his offerred the most money, like all players - and that won't be Leeds or Bolton.Not where he is offered the most money its where his family is so most likely leeds, blackpool etc cus he is frm mersyside so wants to be closerCharlton wont offer him the most becase we dont want him, end of!


29 May 2012 04:42:47
Kevin Doyle will be returning to Reading from Wolverhampton

Southampton and West Ham are battling away with a number of foreign clubs for free agent Micheal Owen

Leicester City have all but signed Emile Heskey, he has been released but has to wait for his contract to run out before signing. One year deal, with optional year on other factors expected. The are also after a winger.

The battle for Nathaniel Clyne is set to intensify immensely over the next week, at least 10 clubs are still battling for him in the Premiership, ManU & Liverpool are favourites, but the lad wants some decent playing time.BackZtheBoat(14)(18)Doyle said he wont go back to the royalsWe said doyle is NOT coming back and he publicly ruled it outSaints aren't going for Owen, he is way past his best and his wages would be astronomical. If we get Rodriguez we'd have 5 strikers, even if Guly goes Lambert, Lee, Sharp and Rodriguez. Plenty of goals on there.Although doyle was a great player for us and we need a player of his quality (i think this will be le fondre next season) i dont want him back now after those years at wolves as it has ruined him and he wouldnt be as good as he was when he joined from corkDoyle will not be returning to Reading and Saints are not interested in Owen as they are close to signing Jay RodriguezConsidering they have just had a bid for rodriguez supposedly accepted by burnley why would they need michael owen, sorry southampton is bsWould love clyne at norwich


29 May 2012 03:45:39
Crawley are to sign a number of players this week including James Hayter, Sam Hird, Simon Gillett and James Baxendale from manager Sean O'Driscoll's former club Doncaster Rovers. Also joining the Red Devils will be left back Ryan Dickson from Southampton for an undisclosed fee.(6)(10)Doubt it simon gillett has said he wants to help donny get promoted and sam hird is more than likely gonna stay the other 2 you can have, hayter is teribleUh, to the poster above, you do not realise that both Hird and Gillet got released?Gilly and Hird are getting new deals. Young Baxo will get one to.Although on the released list the truth behind Sam Hurd and Simon Gillett is they are out of contract simply that. As i understand it by Dean Saunders interviews is Doncaster is still in talks with them and hope to get them to stay. Also i spoke with Sam last pre season and he didn't have much love for Sean O'Driscoll so i would be very surprised if he followed him to CrawleyPeople annoy me when they say 'surely youll get better strikers for 7 mil' this is where managers get it wrong , you may get a 'better ' striker but saints are a club who buy who they need and who will fit in with the clubs visions, tactics and philosophy.. thats why weve been so successful.. people told us lambert wasnt worth 1million in league one.. look at him nowUh, no they weren't. Out of contract yes, released, no.

Wigan manager to reject the l/pool job as the owner will not give him soul control. FSG, now considerind ex USA coach Bradley as they see him as understanding their consept of the proper relationship between owners and team manager/ coach.(6)(6)Absolute rubbish.Liverpool lost control of their soul some time ago.Why does he want to control their souls?"Liverpool lost control of their soul some time ago."
Another miserable negative minded sod.Go away.

Wow according to half these rumours we will have a bench full of keepers come next season!(3)(1)

Reading have opened talks With Celtic over the possibilty of signing Emilio Izziguire(6)(28)Never going to happen! Izzy is going to be one of the best ever in his position and Celtic will try and hold on to him for years to come as well he loves it with us. if spl was epl he would go for nothing less then 25mill and if i was a club i would pay that even for an spl player.
And i know what all the epl fans think about the spl how it is shiat but that dosent mean there is no talent and dosent mean Izzy is not talented. not just saying that because i support Celtic (i know the league is poor)but because i see what he does and yous who dont watch spl are missing some really talented players. Izzy and Wanyama could walk right into the epl and take it by storm. however they still need to develop and think in 2-3years time(hope keep them for more) they will leave for BIG money and all spain italy and all will want these guys soon enough.P#sh , he's signed a new deal for more money at Celtic and is looking forward to Champions League football next season .Hes only at Celtic for continental football

Why would he change that for you ?Hope not, not good enough for the best league in the worldWhy on earth would he leave celtic to go to reading? reading arent even half the size of football club celtic are. not to forget he came out publicly and stated he would stay at celtic for the rest of his career. readings chairman said they would not be spending big money on players if they were to be promoted so where is this 6-7million coming from? when you are saying he isn't good enough for the premier league are you saying your current left back ian harte is?Harte >>> IzziguireHe's already in the best league in the world with Celtic - the Champions League. Reading will never, ever even get a sniff at entering that competition. If Reading have £15m, then Izaguirre might get the chance to say no. In a few years, he'll be at Man United.Spl teams are only championship-bottom 3 premier league standard (at best) anyway so if the kid has any sort of ambition to play in the best league in the world he should consider it a good moveAs a Reading fan I don't think Harte will cut it and would get roasted by prem wingers but he knows he won't be playing a lot of games next season, he's just happy with his home life in the area, a steady wage and being associated with a club he's grown to like, especially as no other decent club would give him a chance. Great player to bring on towards the end of a game, especially when a free kick is involved.Ian Harte has already proven he is good enough for the Premier League just ask any Leeds fan. It's ok you can keep your left back. I'm sure he'll enjoy getting knocked out of Europe by a Serbian pub team....again.All this arrogence coming from ppl whos club will be fighting to stay in the epl all there life. the only reson you stick around is because of the money. and the best league in the world is CL. and if epl is the best then surley yous dont belong because you just stay in by a string every year, when di yous win anything? stop with all your nonsence cause Celtic would run riot over yous.
just watch a game and in 1 game you would see that Izzy is better then any left back you could have and he would only move on to an even BIGGER club then Celtic like man u, ac milan, real madrid, barca....which by the way Celtic have faced before and beat.....have yous ever? not bad for a team that plays in a pub league as you say, is it not.This rumour is true you naive Celtic fans. Now the takeover is complete we have the funds to make this deal happen and we have been scouting him for the past 5 months ever since the potential takeover was announced. Izaguirre would love the chance to go to a team in the Premier League to test himself against some of the best players in the world. Celtic might be big in Scotland but in all fairness you are minnows. You act like beating Man Utd makes you amazing when League 1 team Southend beat Man Utd. Grow up and accept one of your best players has been interesting Premier League clubs.Funny how it's Celtic that are playing a glamour friendly in the USA and not one of your living off sky money tinpot clubs? Apart from top 5 clubs how many would really survive without sky money?At "the rumour is true" guy, did you not notice that i mentioned 3 other teams? yet you focus on man u(is i because you never have played them?), this just shows how ignorent yous are because the other 3 are better then your top teams in epl. NOT EVERY PLAYER WANTS TO PLAY IN EPL WITH A NOBODY TEAM, Izzy loves it at Celtic because it is BIG and worldwide for i dont see any reading fans in Africa,Canada,America,China,Korea,Australia and in the rest of europe for that matter.....funny how our club gets invited to SO MANY prestige tournaments that are worldwide from our youth clubs(under17s,20) to our first team and it is always with HIGH PROFILE CLUBS not epl clubs. if Celtic wsa that bad why would we always be associated with this tournaments and not yous. your team may like having the money but MOST PEOPLE WANT TO WIN somthing! enjoy your season of going nowhere and not winning anything while we enjoy CL and go up against the best clubs that are NOT IN THE EPL and aainst the best players in the world. ppl go to epl to get thier loto winning pay day thats it.Naive Celtic fans ? At least we admit to who we support and are proud of it . Tell me you sad unnamed poster who you support and we can have a chinwag about football and you can tell me about your memories of European nights and exploits over the years.......DHA recent poll by UEfa showd that Celtic were one of Europes best supported teams outside of their own country. UEFA showed that Celtic can claim a fan base of around 200,000 in mainland Europe alone. This does not count the rest of the world of course so it can be anybodys guess. It was reported 3 years ago that in New York alone more than 7000 Celtic fans watched every Celtic game live on TV in bars and supporters clubs.

Via Wikipedia:

In 1967, Celtic became the first British team, and only Scottish team, to win the European Cup:[1][2] the players, subsequently known as the Lisbon Lions, were all born within a 30-mile radius of Parkhead. Celtic won every competition they entered that season: the Scottish League Championship, the Scottish Cup, the Scottish League Cup, the European Cup and the Glasgow Cup. Celtic also reached the1970 European Cup Final, but were beaten by Feyenoord.
In 2003, Celtic reached the UEFA Cup Final, where they lost 3-2 to FC Porto. An estimated 80,000 Celtic supporters travelled to Seville for the occasion.[3][4][5] Celtic fans received awards from UEFA and FIFA for their behaviour at the match.[3][6][7][8] In April 2003 the club was estimated to have a fan base of nine million people, including one million in North America.[9You were watching him 5 months ago while he was still out with a broken leg? Christ you're keen!I like how you Celtic fans point to the Champions League to show how big you are. You get knocked out in the qualifying rounds ever year by FC Albanian Pub Team.I hate how all epl teams are so cocky a bet half of them couldnt cope with the tackles in the splYeah, except the two seasons we got to the last 16

Darren O'Dea is extremely close to signing for Huddersfield also have it from a good source Paddy McCourt is speaking with LA Galaxy and New York Red Bulls(7)(11)Think the mls is perfect for paddy because he dosent put in enough work and does too much solo, so its a good fit. but he will bring some show to the league.Celtic are looking to shift fringe players and O Dea comes into that catagory!

With Celtic very interested in Jordan Rhodes there may be potential for a cash plus player/players deal. there are decent players at Celtic who could do a job for Huddersfield or any other Championship clubO'Dea is far from a decent player. Can see it happening as Grayson brought him to Leeds. From a Leeds fans point of view it would be a fantastic signing for Town as he surely would help them go back from where they came!


29 May 2012 00:46:17
Southampton have agreed a record breaking fee for Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez. The deal is supposed to be worth £6.5 million, rising to £7 million if playing incentives are met. Part of the deal is meant to send Richard Chaplow the other way.

Source:Daily Mirror, Daily Echo, Sports Mole, Lancashire Telegraph.(23)(16)Surely he's not worth that much?What's this? No burnley fans putting this rumour down like they were before? Could it be Saints fans were right and they were wrong?
It's all gone quiet over there...."Surely he's not worth that much?"
He is a good player m8, got loads of potential as he is still young. 7 million little bit high but burnley dont want ro lose him so its fair for them.Burnley fan ere on hols in mallorca . im happy if this is true but dnt want chaplow . did he play a lot for you ? has he got any better ? the worrying thing is some burnley fans want a creative midfielder . is he what we need ? he would deffo improve your squad . but will jay play enough ? as who are your other targets ? good luck for next season ! up the claretsYoung and upcoming players don't go for cheap, I think it's well worth the gamble! if he cuts it the prem his worth will double... Good business for the Saints and a sign we mean BIZ!Surely there has got to be a better striker to spend £7M! Hooper, Fletcher, Defoe, Rhodes! Being a saints fan we need a Premiership striker! Rodriguez is no better then Wigans Di Santo !Jay is currently on holiday so I don't think he has entered any dialogue with Southampton as reported in ther Daily MirrorWill be good signing ,would sooner see any of harding,hammond,guly go the other way instead of chaplow thoeQuiet? Not quiet at all, Jay Rod leaving is not a great surprise. However it would be a surprise if he signs! Why aim to play in the Championship when Southampton are relegated? He'll wait and see what comes in from established Prem teams before he signs for anyone. So it may be a good idea to be quieten down until the deal is done.Can't see Chaplow being part of it, unless we're after a new CM as well.You cannot compare Jay Rod with Di Santo! Jay is a much better player. He is still young too so £7m might seem alot now but if he reaches his potential it could be a good buy. Remember when we held out for as much money as possible for Alex Chamberlain? Well Burnley are now in that position and they want as much as they can get for their star player..and rightly so! Its not a done deal yet though, he might not want to move down south...Time will tellChaplow tweeted
Lot of Rumours flying aroundon my future.
I am still a saints player and it's somewhere I want to stay for a long time.Where are all the people who were previously saying things like "Southampton don't have money to spend this summer" and "Southampton won't spend £6m on one player" then?

People need to do research before talking about Southampton. They have money to spend and financial backing. The club is practically debt free.

And don't write them off as dead certs for relegation just yet...Burnley fans. What is your valuation of Jay Rod? And do you think he will cut it in the prem? Just how good is he and how high do you rate him? No better opinion than the people that watch him every week.Good buy if it comes off, a little expensive but he is a great young prospect and will be worth a lot more of that if he scores the goals along with Lambert, Sharp and Tadanri San.
Dont want Chappers to leave though and dont think he will - he has been one of the stars in our midfield, has a great engine and hounds and harrases the opersition and he will do a job for us in the prem.To the sensible Burnley fan in Mallorca. Don't think Chappers will be leaving but he would strengthen any Championship squad and will be ok in the Prem. Wouldn't describe him as a creative midfielder but a decent player, bags of energy, an eye for goal and solid defensively. Chuffed to bits about Jay and hope that any delay in the sale of his new house does not cause a delay in contract negotiations! Hopefully, this will stop the silly Saints rumours about Owen, Holt, Defoe etc and if Jay can't force himself into an automatic starting place at Saints then it's unlikely he would elsewhere in the Prem. Saints have a much longer term plan than simply next season but Burnley play good football and the money released by this deal could turn you into strong top six contenders next season. Waste of time trying to predict who will win it!It's cash only, no saints players will be includedI want rodriguez but i don want chaplow to go!Sensible fan of burnley in mallorca back again lol . i think to answer your question re jay , he will no doubt do v well at your club , he is so down to earth , a true mod day profesional player . he is that good that if saints do well in the prem ie top half or top of the bottom half of the table he will end up getting a call up for england . he has already played for under 21's .and is that good . he will flourish . thanks for the info re chaplow . just hope if he is part of the deal , burnleys new joint chairman give eddie howe the money , all of it to re-invest in the team . cheers and gud luck next season . Up the clarets .

Ex-Cardiff City fullback Paul Quinn is to join Huddersfield Town on free as big clubs like Wolves, Bolton, Leicester, Reading and Cardiff are after young, promising right back Jack Hunt.(10)(7)Hunt just signed a new contract at Huddersfield, he's not going anywhere


28 May 2012 23:09:50
God there Is some rubbish written on here! I can remember looking on here in the January transfer window & not one of the rumours posted actually happened !! Get a grip!(10)(14)It's a rumour site, most of it won't be true as they are rumours not facts. Otherwise that site would be named "".Do you have SourceActually all 3 of mine did, thank youMickeal Owen is deffinetly gonna sign for Derby County tho

I saw him parking his car up, and playing golf with Glick !!!!

ITS TRUE I TELL YASome rumours on here DO become FACTS & other stuff STAY rumours! Its just about football interest in general!So the heavily rumoured transfer of billy sharp from Doncaster to Saints didn't happen then?!Some did actually...Its a rumour site anyway! Not all of it is meant to be true, if it bothers you that much dont come on here!May be you got the wrong car park as Glick is going to Man.City

West Brom are Interested in James
Bailey from Derby County.Derby are
Hoping they will be allowed to Get
Scott allan on loan if this deal went


28 May 2012 23:21:29
Derby county Transfers out

Steve Davies to Bolton for 775k +
250k if promotion is achieved.

Chris maguire to Watford for 500k

James Bailey to Charlton for 550k

Miles Addison to Coventry for 175k
+ Nathan Cameron or Jordan Clarke

Lee Croft to Oldham Undisclosed

Dundee united have told Interested
clubs that if they want Johnny russell
or John daly they have to provide a
Replacement and Derby said they
would Give Callum Ball and
Connor doyle on loan.But They Dont
want a striker on loan but to keep
they are very interested in Chris
Maguire especially with him feeling
home sick.That would mean Derby
would give chris maguire + cash for
the strikers which would mean no deal
to Watford.

The Pricing is what the local papers
have put so dont blame me.(3)(9)As a Derby fan these are the most realistic transfers Ive heard for our club on here.I am not getting all this talk with deals with dundee united for strikers has anyone a SourceThey all seem very likely especially the savies one as it allows to be around his
parents which was his reason for rejecting the contract and west brom are
interested in james bailey aswell but hes a wise boy and i see him choosing a champ tean like charlton instead with more realistic game time.i also dont want to hear anymore about jason shackell>as derby are a proper club and any speculation on players are straight away cleared
up by nigel on the radio and he said that shackell if anything is
fighting for a new it would the club longer than they have to find someone who dosent cost alot to be good as shackell.if players such as matt mills and mariappa are going for 5 million.shackell should be worth 6/7 million as hes better than both of them and the pundits know it and lets face it you know it and with the importance he has for the club it would take alot to get him so shhh and most burnley fans say eddie howe said hes nevr thought about shackell.Shackell better than Mariappa? What planet are you on?Can any Derby fans give me a quick summary of James Bailey? Sounds like a Chris Powell style signing.Mills = overpriced. Mariappa = Only one year on his contract and won't go for £5m. Best of the lot though. Shackell = Admittedly good but £6m/7m? That would be extreme overpricing.Im a watford fan and marriappa is going for no more than 3 million and hes only 24. Shackell is nothing speciall and also i would say matt mills is porably better than him, dream on dont be suprised hwen u accept 1.5m for him!James Bailey is a fair player good passing ability..sad to see him go...but thats footballMatt Mills is no way better than Mariappa. Mills is a solid centre half but Mariappa is more versatile, quicker, and is a monster in the air. The kid jumps like a gazelle!Can't see Croft to Oldham happening. Wage demands too high, and there's no way we could afford any sort of transfer fee.Unless Miles Addison is worth more than 1.5 million then we wouldn't part with cash plus Jordan Clarke. One of the players last season to show real talent and still young. Plus he has stated that he is definitely staying next season.


28 May 2012 23:15:46

Hddersfeild right back Jack Hunt is set for talks with Ipswich after a fee of 1.5 million + clauses was agreed. Town are also oin talks with former stoke striker Ricardo fuller about a possible return to PR(2)(23)Why would he leave huddsfield to go to ipswich doesnt make any sense go up then sell players to teams in same lge?I think will will get fuller but jack hunt? no we are getting elliot hewit in RB from MTFC who just got relegated from league2 so we wont need jack hunt hewit is having a medical today at portman road also he is ment to be the next bale as he is welsh and a really good 17 year old with many U21 capsAgreed had Hudders not gone up we may have got him doubt it now Lowton is more realistic


28 May 2012 23:13:21
Stephen Qinn set to begin talks with Ipswich town after a fee of 1 million was agreed....(4)(13)Would very much like this to be true. Looks like a good, solid player who's a good age too.That is bull1 million! Bite your hand off for that, most overrated player going!

SOUTHAMPTON have agreed a £6.5m plus add-ons fee with Burnley for Jay Rodriguez, personal terms to be discussed, £6.5 may be reduced if old boy Richard Chaplow returns to Burnley as part of the deal.(19)(17)


28 May 2012 22:55:02
STRONG rumours again coming out of Burnley that a 6.5m fee was agreed with Southampton but Jay Rodriguez has again turned down the move like he did in the January window when a bid was accepted.

JAY RODRIGUEZ ..... HE'S ONE OF OUR OWN.(15)(11)It would only be reduced by 50k-150kI thought Cardiff put a 5.5m bid in for JRThere was no bid in january, but a bid was turned down last summerIt was not accepted in January and he hasnt turned Saints down..A bid has been agreed with Burnley and thats that so far....Hate to break it to you but he wont be "One of your own" for much longer..Wether its with Saints or another club!And yes he did turn you down , we accepted a bid from you before did we not ! So if we accepted a bit from you but jay doesn't play for you doesn't that mean that jay turned you down , because I heard you all saying before he was asking for ridiculous wages well if that's the case then why come back in for him ? Because you know that he did turn you down before and the same will happen again when he's back off his holiday :)It may have been accepted but that's between bfc and Southampton but jays away on holiday ATM and he doesn't want to leave burnley , he's just moved into his own house in the area and all his family live close by him and he's best mates with Austin and trippier so I can't c him leaving burnley fc just yet ! UTCFunny that, Trippier will be the next to sign for Southampton.Wouldn't surprise me , closely followed by Austin , Edgar , patterson , ings , McCann , Wallace , stanislas and all the rest of the burnley players because they only seem to b interested in our players , Adkins will be gone soon aswel and they b tryna appoint Howe !Lol, dont want Ings he is garbage, or he was when he was at Bournmouth. I was also a coach for a team he played for at 16, what an arrogant PK he is.'I can't c him leaving...'. Bless you, respect for the love of your town and football club. Social and occupational mobility is quite normal though these days and there are things such as estate agents, the telephone, trains, cars and even passenger carrying flying things. He, therefore, doesn't have to miss the opportunity of more than doubling his wages, prem football and proving his potential as a future full England striker.Exactly , doubling his wages ? Is that wot uv done with evry saints player doubled their wages for getting promoted ? Can't wait till u go back down n then your clubs just a ticking time bomb again with the new financial rules about to come in , n then u will have to sell , sell , sell just to balance the books haha

Michael Owen to QPR
Jordan Rhodes to Fulham
Nick Powell to Man Utd (who will loan him back to Crewe)
Paddy Kenny + Shaun Derry + Akos Buzsaky to Leeds
Joey Barton to West Ham
Belhanda to Newcastle
Uchibo to Stoke
Scott Sinclair to Liverpool
Eden Hazard said on Twitter that he will be joining Chelsea.
Jermaine Defoe to Norwich,
Grant Holt to Arsenal,
Van Persie to Man City.

Twitter @JakeSpencer1(7)(37)Jermaine Defoe to Norwich and Grant Holt to Arsenal?! Those are some of the most ridiculous rumours I've heard on this site.If RVP is going to leave arsenal, can't see it being for another team in England. Think Barton will stay at QPR. Holt to stay with Norwich, Sinclair wont leave. Owen to QPR is likely, they will use their increased funds that will be able to cover his wages... and they're the club most likely to fork the money out to him for doing ____ all.Joey Barton to West ham.... Do your research on things before you post them, Gold and Sullivan have already stated they will never have a player like that at our club!Rhodes will most likely go to Celtic, even more so if Jay Rod from Burnley is sold. and dont say Rhodes is taken a step back in a shiat league because he would get more time and expirence in CL then any other epl club. and Rhodes would like to develop more before making the jump.And joey barton to westham he on a 12 game he is not wanted stay with the rrrrrrrrrsDefoe to Norwich ? Im a Norwich fan and this will never happen ! , nor would Arsenal want a 31 year old striker to replace RVP ! be realisticPaddy Kenny + Shaun Derry + Akos Buzsaky to Leeds -Can see the connection but have Leeds won the lottery then, they couldn't afford Joel Ward?Owen won't go to QPR. Too far down south from his estate. His estate is too big for him to leave his family and horses up north.Uchibo was at stoke last season on trial and failed to impress. Owen is likely to go to Stoke, Pulis is a big fan, tried to sign him before, and he will be used as a regular substitute. Stoke are also after Will Keane from Man U.Nick Powell will not be loaned back to Crewe, he will be loaned out to a Championship or other Premier League side.I can see RVP going to city thoughStoke turned down the option of Uchibo after having in on trial for only 1 day..Nice try though.. ;)Why would Rhodes want to play for Celtic in a league he will achieve nothing in, he will sign for a prem team as it is the best league in the world. Being in the spl would be like dropping a league.Buzsaky has just signed a new contractHolt going nowhereIn reply to 3rd to last comment gary hooper did the same scored a fair amount off goals for Scunthorpe and went to celtic and hes had the time off his life in scotland??I love how since nick powell scores a wondergoal against cheltenham it suddenly means hes going united.. {Ed001's Note - actually they have been interested in him for a while, as have most of the Prem and Championship.}

He is our longest serving player and just signed a new contract!It's Mike Edwards and unlikely to move to Carlisle as family are settled in the area. More likely a move to Chesterfield if he was moving anywhere. Currently considering an offer from Notts.Oui dopey, just to rub it in its MIKE Edwards!Carlise have offered Eddie a 2 year deal, Notts have offered 1 year, fact.

No abuse please I haven't got time for
people disrespecting me or the people
that give me the information. More soon.
M.(4)(55)Not disrespecting you,but anyone who thought these signings would happen is delusional!Sounds good mate, shame about Lee-Barrett going as he is gonna be class keeper but at least he's going to a good club. Budgies seething at the list of players we're after eh>?I'm an Ipswich fan. You are clearly not or nuts. All utter rubbish and you could have a free house in the deal to sell ALB for £1m. Ha!Dont have a problem with the players here, but youve severely undervalued the ins and severely overvalued the outs!Reading will not be selling Adam Le Fondre. That's silly.Interesting list, but £3m for Stephenson?Smithies for 900k dont think so youll need a couple of million for his services especially after saturdayWhat a load of tripe!£500k for Ross when he has been linked with Premiership teams for £2.5mThese figures are huge. Doubt we could afford/would pay most of these prices. And the players going out are not worth anywhere near the amount quoted.I like how the rumour underneath has chopra for 10x less than yoursChopra to Celtic 2.5 mil? The people that gave you the info are taking the piss out of you mate! Whats your game? Dont have time for abuse but you have time to post rubbish!!Reading wont be le fondre and certainly not for a paltry £1millionIf you don't want disrespect stop writing ste!!I will really be surprised if Everton can find £3M for anyone.We are skint but if we are to sign anyone its Naismith at Rangers £2M to buy out his contract in June.Sorry, but you cant spout utter rubbish and then ask not to be "disrespected"! Arron Lee-Barrett is worth about £100k, and we signed Stevenson in January for 50k and he's barely played any games, so why would his value go up to £3million! Then for the comings in, Le Fondre has just got promoted, as has Smithies and Ross McCormack scored more goals than Chopra, is younger and yet he is somehow going to cost 500k to the £2.5m for Chopra? Where do you get these stories.Someone's playing Football Manager + Ipswich aren't a club players want to join, they offered more money for/to Joel Ward and yet he choose Palace, because Ipswich are a club going nowhereThat's never happening! Stevenson has just signed, he's not worth 3 Million and you've spelt his name wrong!Why are there so many rumours about ALFIE leaving Reading? he will be a crucial part of our team next yearMatt tubbs for a million? hes been awful for bournemouth and thats from a bournemouth fan.
dont put stupid posts up if you want respect #moronI'm friends with an ex town goalie and he said that ALB is not even good enough to play for Ipswich. The only reason he does is because they can't get a decent keeper in.What a load of rubbish. I think the best bit was when you said about chatting to an Agent and a Club's PA. They never casually tell random people their transfer goings-on, so this is all blatent rubbish! And such as someone said above, Ipswich are boring and going no where so no one would join! Hence Ward going to Palace...Stop with the ALFie rumours!!!!This is clearly the post of a Norwich fan! why can't you lot see thatMorrison not[People really need to stop taking every word so seriously. i hope these people really don't lack that much intelligence. this is very clearly a joke.You deserve abuseRoss McCormack (Leeds) £500,000. Your having a laugh 500,000 worth 10 tomes thatSMITHIES?! phaha! get a life mate..Smithies has blue and white striped blood. Not a chance!!!Mccormak staying at leeds the rest going to brighton or leeds

Southampton for Kenwyne Jones after an unhappy season. The fact they introduced him to English football an obvious factor but big spending Anzhi looking to add him to their line up including Eto'o, Roberto Carlos, Samba, Boussafa etc etc etc.

Money over everything?(11)(9)He's rubbish and we don't want himI'll drive him there myself!Since when did you decide who they sign? Jones will go to a far bigger club than Southampton anyway. Several foreign clubs, Sunderland and QPR all interested.Far bigger clubs?? then you mention QPR ...riiiiight. Saints wouldn't want him anyway after his last spell at the club. Poor rumourHis love for Saints was plain for all to see
the way he refused to pull on a Saints shirt and went on strike to get a move when he was here before.
Don't want the over-rated bum back,we are too good for him,let him rot in some lower divison.DONT WANT THAT DONKEY BACK AT STMARYS!!!Every time I've seen him for stoke he's looked terrible! No thanks!After the way he went on strike to force a move from Saints I would never want him back - we dont forget players who treat us like that - Poor player now anyway.'his love'...cos footballers have cared in the past. a lot will happily go anywhereSaints would never want Jones back, get real.Kenwyne Jones and Shawcross on another thread :-)

How deluded are these Saints fans? Sunderland, Malaga, Fenerbache etc all interested in Jones ..........yeah right he'll want to go to Southampton.

Stick to players from Burnley. More realistic.

Unbelievable !!Bloody right we'll stick to Rodriguez over Jones. Only a pompous, arrogant, ignorant Prem snob would say otherwise.

watford striker chris iwelumo is signing for bournemouth this week, the fee is believed to be around 300k. source: daily echo(8)(6)Would like it if we signed him but its not in the daliy echoKeep dreaming the beast is a golden boyWould do a good job for B'mouth. Poor scoring record at Watford but good performances after a slow startI'd take thatI dunno how we'd get £300k for Iwelumo....

2nd half of the season though he has been really good, I wouldn't him if we keep him, but if he went to League One he would be very good when used in the right way. He's not fast or particularly clinical but he can give defenders a nightmare and change games.He'll go for no more than £100kHeard this a copule of times now so hopefully its true!


28 May 2012 21:26:41

Shrewsbury town have agreed a fee of £80,000 with Southend for their winger ryan Hall.
Hall was said to be relieved to leave roots hall as he wanted to leave for a better club with more ambition than Southend.(10)(9)£80k are you sure, it will be more like £250k + he's a bigtime charlie who wont want to move to Shrewsbury.He doesn't want to play for a club that has reached their maximum potential so he won't be joining you anyway your more than likely by fighting a relegation battle next year!Maximum pottential? Its still a higher standard of football than he would be playing at with southend! just because your bitter of losing to 7th placed crewe! 250k for a league 2 player dream on! im sure most clubs would snatch your hand off if 80k was offered for their winger its a lot of money in that league!
if we're going down why have some bookies made us 6-1 to make playoffs?I'm a Southend fan and I think that next season we will be a mid table team if we don't face reality if we let the good players go then we have time to get new onesMaximum potential, LOL,
the last we were in theis divison with Graham Turner at the helm we won it, so a club of no ambition, what a joke, just watch us go!!!!!!!Hall has been for talks at Greenhouse Meadow lunchtime today !!!


28 May 2012 21:22:53
Well done to swansea i thought a team with more money would steal the player that u had on loan from germany . you have showen everybody by buying this player that u want to stay in prem L. All best next season. Ncfc matt.

Otbc(7)(2)Dont need to spend to stay in the prem WBA didnt and look at them top 10 team swansea jus a small club and the are panic buyingPanic buy? LOL! WBA paid £4.5million, possibly rising to £6.5million for a striker (Long) that has scored just 8 goals for them all season. Gylfi scored 7 goals from midfield in half a season, at 22 years old. £6.8million is a bargain!Panic buying ? no we pay for quality mate!Well wba got hammered twice by a small team thenSound a little bitter there Mr WBA, oh and thanks for helping us with 6 points as well.Panic buying ? we all know sigys worth more so profit to swansea :)

28 May 2012 20:20:47
CPFC have announced the signing of Pompey hero Joel Ward on a 4 year deal beating off Celtic, Burnley and Championship strugglers Ipswich.

FACT - club website.(10)(2)How are ipswich championship strugglers when we have only just had the lowest finish in 50 years(15th). and we have finished the season as one of the form teams in the whole division,
crystal palace are the ones that keep taking all the ipswich regects (aka, garvin)How things change?! bitter pill to swallow how Ward chose us over you.His decision based purely on the fact that London is closer to Portsmouth than Ipswich, and he is obviously deluded if he thinks that palace have a greater chance of promotion because when zaha and clyne leave and belief me they will leave, you'll only be a team of Ipswich rejects heading for relegation!Putting FACT at the end of a story just irritates people and doesn't mean it's true - FACTHe chose palace for football reasons, not distance.

Eden hazard has joined chelsea for an undisclosed fee. He has picked the londoners for regular champiopns league football.(18)(5)I cant see hazard going chelsea maybe i am wrong but i hope not he will become a better player with either arsenal or man united i can see united winning the battle because of their manager and historyHe just said on twitter that he would be joining the european champions i.e. Chelsea. Seems like a player with a big ego therefore glad not to see him at United.He's said on hit twitter, hes joining ChelseaTo late mate hazard gone to Chelsea. Fergie holding you back in the market and glazers got no moneyIf he joins chelsea another waste of talent look what happened to lukaku he should go to spurs or arsenal team that would sought his game moreObviously the boy couldn't handle the competition at City, too much quality there for him to stand out and/or demand a starting place. Perhaps his arrogance is misplaced?

Congratulations Chelsea. We welcome your challenge next season.I'm just guessing hazard hasn't taken a look at the final standings in the premier league! yes Chelsea won the CL but the league table never lies!If he wants to play in the champs league regualary he should of thought about not going chelski as drogba won them the fa and champions league!

Brighton transfer talk from the Internet.
Simon Church - Reading (Free)
Alan Smith - Newcastle (Free)
Gai Assulin - (Free)
Joe Mattock - (Free)
Ross McCormack - Leeds (£600k)

Liam Trotter - Millwall (transfer)
Manuel Almunia - (Free)
Rabdal Razak - Man City (Free)
Danny Swanson - Dundee United (£500k)

Ryan Harley - Charlton Athletic (Loan)
Craig Noone - Leeds (Loan)
Romain Vincelot - Millwall (£700k)
Casper Ankergran - Huddersfield (£400k)(7)(18)Why would you be paying for danny swanson he is on a freeSimon Church may be awful but you won't get him for free.Why would you loan out noone arguably your best players also mccormack will cost more than 600k more like 1.8millionAlmunia, smith, assulin and vicente will cost you more in wages p/a than what you will spend in total 2 years from nowSwanson is out of Contract so would be a freeSorry but Simon Church's contract is until summer 2013, so I don't have a clue how your going to get him for free?!Not a chance trotter would go go you lot...if anywhere, it will be prem with southamptonRoss McCormack is going to the prem if he leaves leedsBit of a fail on regarding knowledge of whether players are free or not. I would love McCormack as he is just what we need. Probably more like 1mil though. We do have a chance of getting him as he wants more money (which we can offer, but bates won't). May go to the prem, but I doubt it as he would probably just sit on the bench.I thought Alan Smith signed Permanently for MK Dons? Forgive me I may be wrong. Also we would never loan out one of our best players like Noone.

Trotter has been strongly linked with Brighton for awhile now so it could very well happen.Smith wants to stay at MK Dons and has opened talks with themWho in their right mind would pay 400k for ankergren he is terrible I would pay that for him to go it's no surprise Leeds let him go he is terribleI can't see Trotter going to another Championship club. He captain's the side when Robbo's not playing, has a pretty lengthy contract, and has recently said he's happy at Millwall. Also there are a few Premiership clubs in for him at circa £3M. Why step sideways to a club who didn't even make the payoffs last year?Harley wouldnt get in Charlton's side.Harley will not be coming to Charlton.""Ryan Harley - Charlton Athletic (Loan)"" No, try againWouldn't say noone is one of our best at all. Was very good at the start of the season but after the interest from Cardiff in january he was carp. Would be delighted if we swapped him and Ross mccormackAgree. Noone is good but not the best, McCormack for Noone. DEAL !Razack's loan was cut short due to differences of opinion between him & Poyet. Cant see him going to Brighton unless its on a day trip to the beachTrotter is not worth 3mil, it's just stupid millwall fans lying to make it seem like their players are worth something and that they have moneyWow some serious hate for millwall, you've clearly never seen trotter play, when at his best he drives the team on and makes the team play.And what, Craig Mackail-Smith is worth 3mil with 10 goals in the league last season? If that's the case, Darius Henderson with 19 goals must be worth 6 mil? Anyway... Trotter is worth at least 3mil. Definitely the best CM outside the Prem.If Trotter played for any other Championship club the price would be £5m.Who's Rabdal Razak? ha pathetic rumours, though his name was AbdulIf Trotter played for any other Championship club the price would be £5m

This comment is spot on. His only young and will improveGood luck getting trotter (not)

But if wages are the problem at Pool, there is not a cat in a hats chance of him joining Bury.
Bury never pay fuel or relocation costs.Pools let him go because of a string of injuries and the lack of appearance time couldnt justify keeping him on any longerI hope that he does sign for bury, and can stay injury free. Its a shame we let him go but was the right decision. Him and barker linked well as players for us hopefull richie barker can get him fit and playing.

Heard from very good source at club that Reading are in talks with John Carew free agent and Lee Novak from huddersfield and Berra from Wolves for about 1 million(14)(15)Even thou I am not Berra biggest fan 'in fact' id drive him to Reading. we paid about 2.7 for him, I cant see them letting him go that cheap.especially wit Mr MoxeyIf lee novaks the best you can get then your going straight back downNO NO NO!! Not Berra he was useless for Wolves this seasonAlso been told very good chance off Matt Mills coming backCarew would be good for Reading. Perfect cover for RobertsDon't think so about about John carew he's awful , lee novak no thanks need a prolific goalscorer which he isn't but Berra could be good backup!I hope not all those players are useless and not signings of a team that wants to stay up.No thanks Pitman is absolutly crapWolves won't let him go to reading it's a back step for him a small clubWolves are a small club, reading are ambitious and much richer than wolvesWolves are a much bigger club! Better history, bigger stadium, better financal state! Learn your facts!Wolves a small club compared to reading? A lot bigger than reading, hanneman, Doyle, hunt all left the madjeski for the golden palace, even now Doyle and hunt turn you down as no ambition.
Fans are great and don't mind reading but never can you say reading are bigger than wolves it's like me saying wolves are bigger than Barcelona.How can you say wolves are a small club ? The football club will go places in the next years , no debt , improving the stadium , the players WANT to stay at wolves ... Reading do not have the money to stay in the top flight. And berra was our best defender this year by a long shot. #MINDLESSIDIOTSReading a bigger club? dont make me laugh! they've never won the first division, never won the fa cup, never won the league cup and never been in european competition! Wolves have done all of these! yes it was a long time ago but at the end of the day in terms of history wolves a far bigger club!Better financial state? We've just been brought by a Billionaire! Our stadium is also better then Molineux. Yes Doyle, Hunt and USA may have gone to you but McDermott turned you down as he can spot a sinking ship. He's a scout you know. Also you ruined Doyle.

Aaron Wildig has signed for Srewsbury Town.

Rory McArdle is also set to sign in the next couple of days and Southend's Ryan Hall is currently negotiating a contract with Shrewsbury.(14)(2)Ryan hall wouldn't go shrewsbury dream on!Wildig has signFor the last time HALL IS NOT JOINING SHREWSBURY! Understand?!?Why would he not want League one footballHe doesn't want to play for a club that have reached their maximum potential and will more than likely be back in League Two next year!Why on earth would Hall not want to join us?
There is a difference you know between what the fans want and what is actually going on behind the scenes!
We're a league 1 club with a very ambitious manager if sufficient interest is shown i'm sure we could attract any current league 2 player! Just because you don' think he will go doesn't mean anything, that's just your opinion!Maximum pottential? Like sarfend really have the pottential to get much higher? league 1 football is still league 1 football no matter where the club is in the table! all you southend fans are just bitter that you lost to crewe and cant stand that a better club is coming in for your "talented player" so are denying any rumour that he is leaving and making up rubbish claims that it would take 500k to precure him!
dream on!Im laughing at this max potential rubbish. Roland Wycherley wants the championship and Shrewsbury have good young players. Why not go to ShrewsburyThe fact that the Wildig has just signed today and McArdle is about to sign show's this source is quite reliable? Hall is moving to Shrewsbury.If he is offered a good contract he will sign, even if it just for a couple of years to help progress with his career. Think about it logically - would you play for a league 2 team offering you average wages or would you go to a league 1 team offering better wages. Southend fans think they know Hall personally. Anyone would leave their current club if the money was better and the other club is doing better tooStevenage where in the play offs so this maximum potential stuff is nonsense. Southend have never got above lg1 and Shrewsbury have
Theres no such thing as max potential.
Look at Wimbledons bounce backHall will be Going to Shrewsbury my friend is his friend and last week he met with the Shrewsbury manager to discuss a contract!I bet you 20 quid he isn't moving to Shrewsbury so just write your bank details n here and i'll take it out now because we all know he isn't going to join Shrewsbury!Hall won't be going to Shrewsbury as my nan's neighbour's cat's catnip's maker's husband's boss' daughter's ex's mum's son is in fact Ryan Hall and he has said he wouldn't want to go to Shrewbury again in his life 100% TRUTH!Southend have never got above league 1?!?!?! you sure about that considering we were in the championship 5/6 years ago, shows just how much you knowHall is not going to shrews i wish he was charlton is where he going

Bury boss Barker has raided Rochdale for Ashley Grimes and Nick Adams.

Whilst doing so his contract rebel Jones is linked with Preston and Leicester City.

The future of David Worrall is still uncertain with bids from Huddersfield and Sheffield United expected.
The player who is currently in Majorca, will not listen to any offers until he has sat down with Chairman Mark Caitlin over a new deal.

Lionel Ainsworths move has hit a glitch, with old favourite Ryan Lowe possibly making a return to Gigg lane.

Yeovil Town are chasing midfielder Marlon Pack after his Cheltenham team failed to secure promotion from League 2 yesterday(4)(13)I heard cheltenham only had 10 000 at wembley... yeovil had 35 000! how do they expect to keep the likes of pack with that kind of support... {Ed003's Note - Yeovil took nowhere near 35,000 to Wembley }Yeovil did take about 30- 35 k to wembleyYes yeovil did, the attendance was 59 000 go check your facts before saying utter rubbishActually Ed it was officially given as Yeovil tickets approx 30,000 out of 59,113 total for 2007 L1 Play Off Final.Actually Ed, i was there, the total attendance was around 65,000... i think blackpool tipped the scale so we took just under 30,000 so that isn't far off....Yeah. The attendance for the Yeovil game was 59000 and the Cheltenham game was 24000. That's awful.Yes they did, it was 35 176 exactlyYeovil are a bigger club than Cheltenham!
From a neutral who has been to both Huish Park and Whaddon Road as an away fan.It was just over 30,000 it said it on the ytfc official site the other weekI think ed003 owes yeovil an apology ;) {Ed003's Note - Not at all,Yeovil came out with all sort of figures leading up to that game,their was not 35k there,just search for some images of the game,oh and I happened to be at the game aswell ;)}Sorry you took 30000 because all tiers were open and it was a league one play off final. we were in a league two play off final on a sunday when the top tier was closed, yes we were given 20,000 but only 10,000 could go. Yeovil should be a bigger team as well but pack would never go to you so. it doesnt matter whos got the best support or whos a bigger team, coz pack will be at neither side next year :LHahah whats this guy on about, yeovil took 30k at least if not 35-40kPack is on his way to yeovil mate trust me and Ed003 definately owes yeovil an apology, this should be a lesson for you to not speek without knowledge {Ed001's Note - I love how nameless posters always try and claim knowledge they don't actually have.}Marlon pack is not that amazing, he was okay this year but I doubt yeovil would want him, plus yeovil taking 35 000 is true and cheltenham took 10 000 is true but to be fair crewe only took 14 000 so i think yeovil would have beaten anyone in the whole of league 2 and most in league 1 as sheff utd v huddersfield was only 50 000. {Ed003's Note - Will one of you have the brains to search the game on the well known download site and you will see the crowd,I was there too and 30/35k did not go,the crowd was topped up by the FA selling a few blocks to neutrals wishing to see the new Wembley,B'pool took about 28k and Yeovil around 24k,jeez I'm done on this subject and could we leave names so we know who we are talking to please}Yeovil are still tinpot!! Pack would never join you!CYeovil are no bigger than Cheltenham, this is an absurd rumour as clubs like Leeds and Birmingham have been following Pack and he would command a fee in excess of £500,000.Yeovil are a bigger club you only have to look at their standings their in league 1 Cheltenham aren't

Bilel Mohsni for a fee to be believed to be (£170,000) Beating off competition from stevenage...

Also players set to be exed from sixfields Aaron davies & Jake Robinson both following ex cobblers mamager to yeovil town.

Aaron davies (£40,000)

Jake Robinson (£25,000)

Also the chase for the cobblers youngster Micheal Jacobs has settled down following the stamp down price aidy boothroyd put on the northampton town born 20year old to be believed between (£800,000 & £900,000) With big Premier league clubs now in the running for the very talented youngster!(3)(15)The Board have Decided to take the matter into their own hands and accept
bid of 375,000 from derby as they know hes going to leave and want to be able to provide the funds for transfer targets
early save late disappointment.#SkysportsNewsThey've already rejected £600,000 + from us, Derby, So why would northampton accept £375,000 for him?Before this Jacobs kid moves to a better team he needs to prove himself in either league one or championship as league 2 does not have quality in it, and there's no way Yeovil would pay 40,000 for Aaron Davies he's always injuredTheres no way would jacobs go to league one... he's to good for league one football, he'd go top a top championship club or a prem club.... & yeovil couldnt afford £40,000 so thats one's never happeningThanks guys much appreciated for the information.No way is Jacobs good enough for the Prem yet. Championship at best at the minute.

It will take about 5-6 million to prize Holt away from Norwich(10)(21)Holt is not worth 5-6 million at the best 3-4 maybe less but because of his age not many clubs will want him so would be a waste of money so you Norwich fans are dreaming if you want 5-6 million for Holt... He's not even that good anyway, but i think he should stay, but if he does leave it should be to Celtic as it would be good way to end his career on a high but thats just my opinion.Doubt you would get that much for a has beenPeople make assumptions on both sides of the coin, be that Norwich fan or not.
I am a Norwich fan, we would not get 5 million for Holt. maybe 3.5 as previously stated. but on the flip side, people are calling his season a one-off, and a has been. He has been performing for Norwich consistently for three seasons, and as far as I know he performed well again in the season just gone. He will not be a has been until he has a season like Carroll just did.Jackson has been moving up the pecking order at Norwich. Some great performances towards the end of the season, when it really counted. He will either be not for sale, or for more than 1mHe's not leavingFor a has-been, no, but for a player who scored 15 Premiership goals in around 25 starts + 12 as a sub? How many middle ranking sides have someone like that? Even at 31 he's worth 3-4 million - but hope he stays.He didnt say Holt was worth 5-6 million did he. I think some people struggle to grasp the difference between market value and the parent clubs valuation. Andy Carroll was/is not worth 35 million, but thats what Newcastle wanted if they were to let him go, Liverpool were crazy enough to pay for it.

Likewise, if other clubs do want Holt, id imagine it would take 6 million to prise him away from Carrow Road due to his importance on and off the pitch. He is a leader and talisman at Norwich, where as if he moved to ay Sunderland, he would just be another of the group. Different people from different angles have different valuations. Its how the world works, if you cant grasp that then please refrain from replying to this post as it will most likely be pointless drivel.

OK Leeds fans - here's the deal.

The club are said to be in talks with a group interested in the purchase of Leeds United. I don't know too many details about the purchasers, except for the fact they are NOT based in the UK.

Aside from that, what I can tell you is that Ken Bates is said to be very keen indeed to remain Chairman and continue building up the club in line with his current plans. In essence, this will be the stumbling block to any potential deal. I think a number of different possibilities, including situations in which Bates remains on the board, are being explored. Talks are expected to continue over the next month.(12)(12)Let's hope it's the venkysMost poignant rumour is the link with the Canadian Maple Leaf owner's consortium, according to The Scratching Shed. They reckon there's something in it.

Burnley have already began to look at players to sign with the £7+million pounds from the Jay rod sale

CB - Jason shackell - from derby for £3million
CM - Jacob mellis - free agent after being released from Chelsea for smoke grenade incident
ST - Lewis grabban - from Rotherham united for 800k
ST - Simeon Jackson - from norwich for £1.1million
GK - Alex smithies - from Huddersfield for 900k
CM - Lee Lucas - Swansea for 400k

This adds up to £6.2million with the rest being stored in the bank for January(13)(30)I think derby might think about the offer
for jason shackell.But Nigel clough said before they would accept an offer for shackell they would need to find a replacement first.3 mil for Shackell? Yes please. He's good but not that good..Do you mind letting us know if Rodriguez is coming to Southampton then? Ta.Rotherham will snap your hands off for 800k for lewis grabban£7m+ for a championship striker...really? the football world has gone mad.We are not even after Shackell and EH was not impressed with Mellis during his trial.What a load ov TOSH!!I think you'll find the other 800k may be used for wages and not stored...... jay rods wages wouldnt cover for that lotSo your bringing in2 strikers so that must mean Charlie austins no playing strangeJackson worth 3m£3M for Shackell - what are you on and can I have some please, he was sold by Norwich because he is to inconsistent.
If Derby get offered £2M for him they will snap the other clubs hand off.
Jackson will not be sold by Norwich unless someone offers at least £2M or he is involved in a money + Jay Rod deal, then Lambert would be interested otherwise he will stay at Norwich for next season.What a load of rubbish.

If we got 7 mill for Jay Rod, EH will probably get 3 mill to spend.

Also for the post that said 7 mill for a Championship striker, Conor Whickham went for higher, I think it was 12 millionLee Lucas - at best a loan - not for selling him.Lee lucas is a swansea boy! he would only go out on loan!If the beast has any common sense he wouldn't drop to League Two...I'm a norwich fan and I'm telling you Jackson is worth nothing, he is out of contract in a month and he will sign a new contract with David fox and korey smith. Norwich to sign olssonShackell is defo worth the 3 million being quoted but if Derby are serious about going up, they need to keep him - best championship defender i have seen this season!Idiot, shackell is going nowhere, quoted from the det website saying im very happy here and want to be here for years to come. Unreliable source mate, sort ya factsIf you want to spend 800k on Lewis Grabben il drop him off for you, top player this season but not really proven yet and also can be moody

Man Utd are going to make a move for Frank Lampard who is worried about his future with the Arrival of Hazard, The bigger news is though that Chelsea are not expected to get the unhappy Modric and Redknapp will demand Lampard the other way as part of the deal. Expect Lampard to stay in London and link up with Harry who he is well known to be fond off for obvious reasons.(7)(29)We dont want a hasbeen,stop making up crap.Haha, if you're a Spuds fan, then that "has been" has won more trophies than your entire squad, jealous much? Lampard could add bags to any club in England he would join.

Former Bournemouth striker Brett Pitman looks set to join Reading as they look to establish the club in the Premier League. Brian McDermott rates the striker very highly and tried to sign him while at Bournemouth. The offer accepted looks to be in the region of 750k.(2)(24)He goin afcb lad deal nearly completed with Marc Pugh going to Bristol city31 appearances 6 goals this season... no thanks (churchy has 7 in 30 appearances) no way we'd go for him sorry...Great news. I will drive Simon to Leicester for free, nice guy but didnt take his chances (or score enough goals) All the best!Would be one hell of a signingI never rated him that highly when he was at bournemouth so if he can get a move to reading then fair play to him!Leicester have money so we should try sell him for over 1 millionI'd rather we didnt sign a decent ish league 1 striker... We have Church ya'knowWhat do leicester have to do with it?


28 May 2012 14:31:41
Martinez is likely to withdraw his interest in the Liverpool job - he would have preferred total control, to maximize his chances of winning over the deeply skeptical Liverpool fans. However, another season of relegation struggle at Wigan, whilst attempting to build his reputation, does not appeal to him. Dave Whelan's instant reporting of his every move on Sky hasn't helped. Expect Martinez to move soon - if not to Villa, then perhaps back to Swansea should Rodgers go to Liverpool.(12)(10)Martinez would not go to Villa or Swansea. he rejected Villa last year. He will only go if he gets the Liverpool job or better.Liverpool is a poison chalice for him - unless he gets top 4 in first or second season (very unlikely) they will do a Hodgson on him. Only "their own" people like Dalglish are given time - others need instant success.Shows how far liverpool have fallen chasing these two,dear oh dear.Swans fans would not welcome roberto back readily and I suspect neither would the swansea board. While he was here he was fantastic both as player and manager and we must not forget how much we owe him. However he left taking a number of key figures with him and showed little appreciation to the club who gave him his managerial start. I hope he can find success at another club .Utter rubbish Martinez and whelan are like father and son if he don't accept Liverpool job he'll stick with Wigan who have started playing some of the best football in the league n push for a top ten finishIm a Wigan fan and we wont push for a top 10 finish, we havent got the finances to do that.

And I dont think Martinez will leave.

BTW to the Swansea fan give Martinez a break he left you for the club he loves and supports to work with a man who not onl respects him but is close freinds with him.I heard that Martinez went begging to villa and Randy Learner went elsewhereAgree with the aboveAgree with the one above the one aboveAgree with the one above the one above the one above

alessandro del piero is considering a offer from west brom for 50k a week(5)(36)Hmm there current highest earner is only on 22k a weekWhy would he go to west brom them and reading say there signing all these players but they are the two smallest clubs in the premCorrect me if I am wrong but I think Odemwingie is on 40K per weekI think you'll find Southampton, Reading, QPR, Wigan and Swansea are smaller than West Brom, in terms of av attendance,Why wudnt he go to west brom Ben foster on loan is on 70k a week odemwingie 40k a week any way we don't want him boing boing coybWe wont sign him maybe be our manager! Let me guess u mentioning small clubs take it you a villa fan?1st of all our highest earner is on 43grand a week. And secondly we had third highest NAT profit and incredible disposable income, not to mention the top 10 finish...Southampton averaged nearly 27000 in the championship and will get 32000 in the prem west brom averaged 23500 in the prem so don't be a silly boy the person who said that you were the smallest club was rightHow are west brom 1 of smallest clubs in prem when we finished in the top half and spent more money last season than other teamsWest brom have a small supportPretty sure that odemwingies on more than 22k just so yano geniusWest broms a small town, we have villa blues wolves to compete with so dont do bad fan wise, ill take being a small club if we continue way we are, not many bug clubs in england now top 4 bout itOdemwingie is on 40k p/w. signed it in the last pre-seasonHow are west brom 1 of smallest clubs in prem when we finished in the top half and spent more money last season than other teams--- One top half finish doesnt constitute being a big club! i'd argue there are several bigger clubs in the championsip!We're not a massive club, but we do have history. On a par with many prem clubs, a few smaller than us. Of course there are a good 10 or so clubs in the prem bigger than us and clubs such as Leeds in the Championship are bigger than us but we are definitely not minnows. On history and recent seasons we are on a par with Stoke IMOAlso smaller clubs in the premI agree we are a fairly small club. However we are the best in the midlands look at some of the players we have compared to the rest of the midlands. Also we finished way higher than any other midlands team last season. And odemwingie is on a 40k deal!It's good to be a 'small' club, as most fans of big clubs that you tend to hear on phone-ins or read on websites are the most snobbish, dislikeable and unpleasant wastes of oxygen you'll ever get to witness (and they're probably not good enough to be a shelf-stacker at Lidl), and they deserve success in the same way a psychopath deserves release from a maximum-security ward. And if is anything to be believed, they've never been near a school. A bigger, richer club history, it seems, belongs to the Billy Bigtimes, who should hand their season tickets to people who don't, when it arrives, take glory for granted.WBA - One of the smallest clubs in prem ?..why..?...cos our ground currently only holds 27,000 and we aint got money to splash around?
Could I point out that West Bromwich Albion are one of the founder members of the football league.Have won the only proper double(1931) that still hasnt(and wont) be repeated...and has more Cup Final appearances than a good many.Football did exist prior to 1992/1993 Premier League.People do talk some tripe on here.Many clubs these days are only "big" due to obscene money being chucked at them.We won stuff without money.Small support my arse - given the catchment area...and the fact that we lost capacity due to all seater..we have excellent support.Open yer eyes and look at West Broms away support.We have local fans.The bulk of support dont all come from China,Cornwall and London.We have fans who support their "LOCAL TEAM"...not plastic fans like many others.Players ain't gonna join if we are a 'small club' they'll join on how good we are, and i'm sure if you look at the table, we are the 10th best team in englandI'm from London and support West Brom. And one of my mates does as well and he's from London. Not small club.As a wolves fan I'd say Albion are a far bigger club than half of those in prem and all mentioned here especially southampton, WBA have amazing history, southamptons biggest achievement is 2nd in the championship

Owner Bassini been found out to be potless and not meet payments! Big news coming out that Watford will have new owner very soon! Bassini has been found out!(5)(7)Yes , it's the Russo Brothers......Been planning the take over for a year!!Russo's to take overYes and the Russo's have an endless amount of money to put in to the club...not!This whole thread is stupid. Firstly just because Bassini was declared bankrupt for credit purposes the bankruptcy is only effective for 6 years from the start date. Mr Bassini has kept his word from the very start, unlike the majority of football club chairmen. Check what he said last year and you'll find that he has met every promise. More important he has managed to reduce the debt at the same time. I'm not sure but I prefer our chairman to having say the Glazers who have dumped a country size debt on Manchester United.Giampaolo Pozzo is the most likely to be the new owner of Watford FC, as previously stated back in February. That is if all the speculation about Laurence Bassini is true

David Beckham to return to Manchester United in a shock move.
Also Craig Gordon to move to Swansea as to gain more first team football. {Ed005's Note - With Vorm there I can't see Gordon getting much first-team football at Swansea.}(10)(18)Beckham left Man Utd because Fergie was sick of the media circus that came with him, since leaving it has intensified so Fergie would not want him back.Albion and wolves are also in the hunt for a keeper so could go anywhereYes but Becks wants World Cup football after missing out on the Euros. Giggs, Becks and Scholes anyone?Have i missed something has fergie passed away,thats the only way soft lad will be back,and gordon wont be a understudy anywhere.Craig Gordon looking to get back to full fitness with Simon Mignolet being eyed up by Liverpool. However, Newcastle may strike for him if Tim Krul goes to Chelsea. More to follow.

Watford owner Bassini on his way out
of the club ! Could all happen within next
3/4 days. Not just idle gossip according to
various reports on social networking sites.(11)(3)The man is a fraud and a joker! Surprised it took this long to be found out! Bankrupt Bas good riddanceMust be true...its on social networking sites. Get real....Does seem strange that new owners are already in place to take over. Are we looking at Italians I wonder as previously mentioned back in February?Can't believe it. So many rumours like this over the course of the season. Just hopeful fans. As a Watford fan, I don't see why people want him out. He has funded so much and keeps delivering.Yeah, yeah... What is it with these so called fans posting ste like this. What Bassini has already done for us (started pitch relaying, gave sean a better transfer kitty than malkie had before him etc so far fulfilling promises laid out when taking over) and all you so called supporters are getting on his back because he was made bankrupt in1997. For f#k sake people.everyone makes mistakes. Let him get on with his role as owner and judge him when his time is up.Has he actually invested money (his or anyone else's) or just spent money that has come in from transfers.Why does he have to spend his own money ? Why not just use the transfer income. makes a lot of sense.We will see on Wednesday if Kevin Affleck is a phoney or if Bassini is a phoney. The clock is ticking.I would suggest some of his own money but not massive mounts. most from previous transfers. it would be nice to know where his money does come from so it would give the fans some relief tht we wont go bust anytime soon or sell anymore players soon.Does it really matter we getting a new pitch, 2 screens, stadium development. New pub. Less debt, decent players in and finished 11th. Firstly he has stated over the last year on two occaisionwhen he has put two million in to pay off further debts and keep the club affloat. Any way who cares, were in less debt and looking on the up!

Southampton are hoping to tie up a 1 year deal with Clarence Seedorf while he is over in the UK. The 36 yr old will combine playing with a coaching role for the first season and then take up a full time coaching contract in the summer.

Cortese has used his Milan contacts to help achive this deal.(21)(17)I'm a saints fan, and can I be the first to say, thanks for fuelling the Saints hate :) Ridiculous postPompey fans been at it again have they? Shouldn't you be trying to balance your books? Or are you trying to devise a new and improved way of cheating your way up the league again.Why is it ridiculous?!?

He's out of contract and showed last night he's still got it.....Clarence Seedorf is way past his best and I doubt he would handle premier league pace now, and anyone looking at him last night and boasting about him still having it, are you having a laugh ? I assume he played for the rest of the world term in the charity work.Did someone watch soccer aid last night? Will we be signing Roy keane and crespo as well?This would be good seedorf is a good player and could give good tips to the likes of ward prowse schderlin cork, also he has never played in the prem before so that could make the deal
Saints fanIt's ridiculous because he has won the CL multiple times and is one of the most decorated players in European football. He isn't going to play for little old saints, get real guys. And by the way I am a saints fan.
Still got it?? He was playing against Ben Shepherd and JLS ffs!!Ahh would love that if it happened but it probably wont!! :LWhy not?! Could happen.I heard they watched him at Soccer Aid but decided to sign Mike Myers instead.


28 May 2012 13:59:31
Craig noone brighton to leeds ?(7)(15)Cant see it happening unless on loanNo way he is fully comitted to brightonI've only heard that Cardiff were rejected a bid back in January can't see him switching Brighton for Leeds...Noone turned down a contract from Cardiff in January, seems he wants to stay at the albion as long as he is still a key member of the team.Cash + player deal for McCormack ???

Malouda to fulham , hazard to cfc, zaha to west ham , debauchy to n'stle , lavezzi to liverpool , rhodes to fulham sam to fulham dempsey to arsenal , arteta to fulham , dembele to man u , anderson n carrick to fulham, defoe to qpr , santa cruz to qpr , simpson to fulham , abdellaoue to fulham , bendner to norwich , ollic to villa , sinclair to fulham , baird to swansea , etuhu to wolves , jarvis to fulham.(12)(35)So that'll be Fulham signing 10 players by your reckoning ..... very good !!!Lol, another person sitting at their computer making up utter garbageWow arent fulham busy this summer spending all that money they dont have ..........Not a Fulham fan by any chance?A lot of player to FulhamObivously a wishful Fulham fan. Sorry mate, aint going to happen...Wow Fulham have come into some money thats nearly a whole new squadSo who arn't fulham getting?Somebody likes FulhamAre you a fulham fan by any chance. just a hunchThat wacko jacko statue, must be pulling in a lot of money for your club to be able to sign all these players!

Fulham dark horses to finish in the top four next season ?.All very speculative.

I AM a Fulham fan (not the original poster) - IF we lose either Dembele or Dempsey - then there will be several class replacements. If they stay, then only expect young, good prospects like Rhodes.

Fulham have plenty money - one of the few Premiership teams to make a profit on last set of accounts; well run with sensible salary system; multi-billionaire family in control.Arteta to fulham.....are you mental?What are you on?Wow! Fulham signing 3 left wingers!!
Damien duff AND dembele will have some competition! JokerI agree, apart from the GK part. Ruddy is quality, all we need is a new defence, most likely a big bulky one that will help command the defence. I think all the signings above are good ideas, we should have signed Lansbury in the 1st place!R u a fulham fan by any chanceSo everyone is going to fulhamFrom a Fulham perspective:

I suspect that Malouda's wages will be too high for our budget.

I've heard that our original offer of £3.5m rising to £6m got rejected by Huddersfield for Rhodes and we will return with a take it or leave it £5m rising to the same amount.

I've not heard much about Sidney Sam but it seems Clint Dempsey will be headed for Arsenal or abroad, if to Arsenal it will be cash + Ramsey, Arshavin or Chamakh.

It's also possible that Dembele will go to Manchester United in a swap with Anderson but more likely to Spurs in a swap for Kranjcar or Huddlestone.

Danny Simpson on a free is a definite possibility depending on Newcastle's negotiations.

We were interested in Scott Sinclair before they came up and actually were prepared to make a bid depending on their play off result. Martin Jol may still be interested.

Etuhu and Baird are expected to leave, but whether to the clubs stated or not? I'm not convinced. Jarvis may interest Jol due to his pace, direct running and accurate crossing but Wolves may ask for money he simply is not worth.Simpson isnt on a free, newcastle will want at least 4 millionBack to fantasy football for you young manStop making up rubbish and learn your facts before spouting off.Akos Buzaky just signed a new deal with QPR.How can you say Jarvis is not worth 10m?? Young went for 16m with 10months left on contract, Henderson 20m Jarvis has 4years left on contract and has played for England as well as scoring 8goals last season which is more than dembele in a struggling team, so please tell me how dembele is worth 15m??


28 May 2012 13:33:44
I've just met Francois Zoko in Preston town centre! I remember him being fast and having good feet but didn't realise how tall he was! Possible target man? He said that he can't talk about anything when I asked if he was signing for PNE..(14)(7)Did he ask you if you wanted fries with that Big mac......This guy will not be available on a doubt youre getting himIf you take the trouble to check your facts you will find that on 24 may on the official Carlisle website Zoko is one of 8 players out of contract.Zoko will be a free agent as from the 1st july and he can talk terms with any club he wishs ,he as stated he wish to leave carlise he was in talks with preston today and will think over the moveRumours...

Just get your woodwork supportedWhat's that got to do with anything ?Leicester would not cough that up for judge1.5-2m and you would have a deal. He is good enough for the Premier League.

Wolves Manager Stale Solbakken has entered the race to sign jordan rhodes in the hunt to help his team achieve promotion.

With everton favorites to sign Lillestrom's & Norways Hottest prospect Björn Bergmann Sigurðarson, jordan rhodes fantastic form last season has caught the attention of the wolves board and manager.

More Information as things progress.(7)(13)Why would he leave 1 championship side wheres he loved (and just pledged to stay at) for another championship side, doubt it!!Unlikely when 4 prem teams want his services. and with bjorn going to everton wer probably going to be stuck with the players we have.No one knows who the new Wolves manager is after so this is lies, plus if Rhodes is going to play in the Championship he'll stay at Huddersfield and there is no way Wolves would pay £8m for a player who is only proven in the third tier. In regards to Sigurdsson he's Lillestrom and ICELAND's latest talent, playing in Norway doesn't make him Norweigan.

BobbybuffonMaybe cause wolves are a bigger club who can help him progress more

n BBS i reckon will come he wants to play for wolves when he stated it in the E&SBobbybuffon ur an idiot.
hes known as NORWAYS hottest talent, do you read express and star? u numpty, yes hes from iceland but has lived in norway from an early ages becuase he was scouted so hush ya noise :DHow can some1 from ICELAND be norways hottest talent if you read the express and star properly it says ICELANDS 21 year striker and lillestroms hotshot young talent.

swansea city have completed the signing of gylfi sigurdsson and will announce the signing when the transfer window opens on 1 june,
they will also sign chris gunter from forest as he is waiting to see what happens with martinez if he goes to liverpool, which will then end speculation brednan rodgers is going there,
they will sign dorrans and dawson from west brom for a combned fee of 7m,
also sinclair will be sold and matty phillips from blackpool and adomah from bristol city, (2.25m plus dobbie for phillips, 2.5m plus moore/lita for adomah)

ive also heard there is a outside chance swans could sign crewe striker nick powell for 3m upfront with 2m add ons, and mark gower will go to crewe. (UNLIKELY)(8)(17)Sinclair will not leave unless Chelsea or Manchester City come for him.Transfer Window opens 1st July and Nick Powell will end up at a 'bigger team'The only one i belive is gylfi cause it was on sky sports and i know someone on the board. i know that hoffenheim have accepted 6.8 million bidThe bid for Dorrans and Dawson was flatly rejected ages agoSwansea budget is rubbish sillyMatt Phillips STAYING at Blackpool !Okay sorry july 1st! yeah i did say the nick powell signing is unlikely! no mate an enquiry was rejected swans havent made a bid yet! and when west brom appoint there new manager who knows what might happens! and i know someone on the board aswell mate haha! not that special are you ;)I play at the WBA academy and know the players and backroom staff decently well. Dorrans won't be sold for less than 6mil and Dawson is a future prospect so he'd be 3mil + AND Swansea couldn't match the wage demands neither.

Burnley interested in taken Jonathan Forte from southampton(12)(14)Maybe part of jay rod dealIf there is any truth in this,there is a God,
he just won't be in Burnley.Just take him he is pantsPlease consider this my offer to drive him there ;-) All pace no brain.I HAVE BEEN TOLD HE'S GOING TO NOTTS COUNTYHe will deffo be leaving Saints, but I can't see it being to Burnley, even as part of the Jay Rod deal, why would they want him? he's league 1 at best! Nott's County is my bet. TRU SAINTS FANDon't understand why other Saints fans hate on him so much. Were you not at the 3-2 MK Dons game which he won for us? Love him just for that.Totally agree with above quote, he is not a bad player but league one is his mantle.MK Dons game was great.Good luck to you JF

LiesHope so....but its 5pm and nothing on the website. Strong rumour Chappers has signed for Rotherham?He having his medical for us (oufc) in Glasgow then is he? As thats where he has been today
Why do people post so much rubbish and lie?There is no chance of Chappers joining Rotherham. He has a driving ban, and he house shares up here. He's on holiday at the moment, so many lies.Although he is from sheffield so living at home isnt a problemHim and his family live in Witney.

Ryan Hall to Northampton Town £125,000

Mark Phillips to Gillingham Free Transfer

Kane Ferdinand to Brentford £100,000 + add-on's (taking the deal to a possible £250,000)

Anthony Grant to Ipswich Town Free Transfer

David Martin to Gillingham £20,000(7)(9)Can also see Bilel mohsni going to northampton too, They've got quite alot of money to spend this season & i could see them out doing anyones wage demands.... Especially stevenageI think I'm pretty safe in saying that these are some of Southends best players, and would be going for larger sums if money, and to bigger clubs than some of those listed.Ryan hall to good for northampton maybe crawley or swindonI heard it's Leeds or BrightonBrentford don't have that kind of money, if he is moving to us it's not for anything like this amountBrentford only have money for loan. i say sign tom taiwo from carlisleBrentford can sign players but not for the fees that are stated here.Kane ferdinand worth around 850,000Kane ferdinand worth £850,000!! NOWAY.... he's worth pennies! the powels & jacobs of league 2 are the only ones worth anywhere near 1million pound!!!I agree he is worth 850,000, he is so one for the futureHes part of the ferdinand genaration(rio,anton)he has to be worth 850,000

Everton let him go on a free, he signed a 6 month contract at Spurs.}Read chelsea want saha apparently going round twitterStupid rumour, I am a massive saints fan and we have not got a hope in hell in attracting louis saha.You undervalue yourself. sahas 33, so if you can offer him regular football, then you could probably get him. we don't particularly want to keep him either, we wont stand in your way. Maybe lallana in a part ex?Keep Saha, Lallana is going nowhere!

28 May 2012 12:31:26
I have it on very good authority from within the club that Saints have earmarked Tom Ince and J Rod as transfer targets. We are very hopeful of completing both of these signings by the end of the first week of June. Nigel feels that completing business as early as possible will ensure success in the prem next season!(17)(11)Hope its true snap them up
before anyone else does

Leeds to sign Brighton midfielder Craig Noone on a season long loan with Ross McCormack signing for Brighton on a permanent deal.(8)(20)Dream onGo for it ima Brighton fan but can't see it reallyCan we afford the asking price of £3 mill for McCormack and the £15k per week he will want.


28 May 2012 12:12:39
Though he's my favourite player, Chris Martin will probaly move away from Norwich, and maybe also simeon Jackson if he doesn't agree to the one year contract option, meaning Norwich need a new striker or two as we've already got rid of Wilbraham.
Also, rumours of Titus Bramble coming to Norwich City are idiotic. We don't need him, he has awful record and he's a awful player.
Norwich need:
New GK
Another FAST winger.

I would like Snoddy, Rhodes, Lansbury and Pacheco(10)(5)New GK????Why do we need a new GK, ruddy is good enoughA new goalkeeper my . Ruddy is quality. Jed steer is a brilliant stand in and we still have Rudd. You obviously have never seen Norwich play!Norwich's three keepers have more than proven themselves this season. Ruddy - England call up, some world class saves. Rudd - Had a bad injury but recovered well, performed terrific for a very young and nervous keeper when we didn't have ruddy as a result of chelsea.
Steer has performed well too, as our third string I think he did very well.Powell from creweRead the Daily Mirror, my posts are based on reports... feel free to check.Leeds are just overrated as per usual...Failed to spot where it says Norwich need a new GK in any reputable news source.


28 May 2012 12:08:58

worked with before.

Other rumoured targets include

loan at the town last season) who have
both previously worked with Boothroyd
Bilel Mohsni and Jo Kuffour are outside
bets for the town, both are unlikely but
who knows.(4)(5)Bilel is a decent player and could play at a higher level. he just needs to cool his temperamentAll watford rejects then from aidys time in charge of watford.

Yeovil are set to spend 200 000 in the transfer market on signing an unknown ex bristol city player. The money comes from years of saving plus revenue given to the club by there fa cup run last season. reliable source.(1)(12)I think if we were going to spend that kind of money, it would be on one of bristol city's better players which i find unlikely... but i can believe we have some decent money available after the last few sales we've had among other things...I heard something about that too, just dissapointed that skivo never got any funds but johnson does not that im complaining!No chance! We honestly do not have this amount of money, despite what people may think.

Norwich city boss paul lambert is ready to make a opening bid for Robert Snodgrass of £1.4M, who is refusing to sign a new contract at Elland Road.

Daily Mirror(20)(13)Snodgrass is worth £5 MillionU mean at least 4.1 m8Nawich wanting desperately to be the mighty Leeds United. Guess what? You can take the players out of Leeds, but you'll never BE Leeds!!He hasnt refused a new deal at all. Where are you getting that information from? He is stalling until Leeds sign some quality and sell the rubbish. Unless Leeds are taken over in the next month or so, in which case, he will sign regardless.
wallyOnly 1 year on contract so 5 million is way too high. offer 2 million and i bet Bates accepts it as he`ll walk for nothing at end of season. Are leeds Norwichs feeder club or what ha ha a big club no moreNot with only 12 months on his contract hes not. He has fitness issues and his lack of pace may affect his effectiveness in the premier league. All this taken into account 3 mil max or id leave alone and take him for 2 mil in Jan like we did with Howson. Eventually he will get his way and get the move to Norwich that he clearly wants.All most went bust and no home ground of your own, ( just rented) and skint. No one likes you, we would love to be just like leeds ha ha haHe won't be worth anything when his contract expires. Typical Leeds fan .thinking they have anything worth money. If he's worth 5mil, then pilkington is worth 10mil. But he's not so ahhhhh. Snodgrass WILL sign for norwich either for a small fee or nothing. Either way Leeds failI am not sure I believe this rumour, I think Norwich may have offered a cheeky bid for him, because he will not sign a new contract at Leeds while Bates remains in charge of the purse strings.
Lambert managed Snodgrass when in his teens at Livingstone so I suspect Snodgrass would like a move to Norwich with Howson and Johnson already there as well.
Lets face even Norwich is able to pay a hefty salary compared to what he earns at Leeds.
I believe Norwich will eventually offer £2+ add on's and Leeds will eventually sell Snodgrass before season starts, They will try to hold out as long as they can to encourage other clubs to enter the bidding process and force up the price.Would be interesting, not sure where this information came from, minus the fact that Lambert had said he had looked at games abroad...

Norwich eye another Norwegian striker, Nikola Drudjic, the top scorer in the Norwegian Premiership.(15)(9)He fancies a move to the PL that's for sure. But he's not top scorer. Joint second.Who does he play for now?He plays for Haugesund.Even if Norwich were to get relegated (with the CEO McNally, it seems very unlikely, will do whatever it takes to keep them up, even IF Lambert is lost.) One season in the premier league to prove himself is better than another year with a mid-table championship team.He's just scored his 8th of the season.

Charlton have enquired about Sean Morrison of Reading. Chris Powell was watching him during the league 1 play off final on saturday.(7)(5)Yeah but Powell was watching everyone as he as a pundit for sky Sports!!

Also S.Morrison is worse than all of our current Center backs so we do not need him.Ha, dont know wot ur thinking saying he wouldn't get in the charlton team he'd walk it anyday, he's huddersfields if they want him, n am sure they do. COYR500 POUNDS! At least it will be more than colchesters match day gate recieptsReading were in the league 1 playoff?Was on loan at Huddersfield"Ha, dont know wot ur thinking saying he wouldn't get in the charlton team he'd walk it anyday" Look at the table from last season and see how many goals Charlton let in then come back and tell us why we need a defender that's not good enough for the championship. You take him if you wnat him because clearly we dont need him.

Byrom is not going to PNE, Byrom would like to join Fleetwood town, as he wishes to move up north, Fleetwood was his old club, they are now in the football league and have money.(7)(8)Im just wondering where exactly Preston has been re-located to ?Yh right why sign for a crap team that will go right back down ,and he as signed for prestonDont forget the wage cap 65% of all income players wages only and very poor attendancesJust think...Fleetwood Town sold a player for £1.1m & spent £3m on their squad last year......PNE have spent £0 on their players and havent been able to sell any of them.....Does that make Fleetwood a bigger club than PNE?

Yet again Swansea prove all their doubters wrongWell swansea have agreed personal terms, and he is to undergo a medical. Pretty much done and dusted if you ask me! Come on SwansWould be a good signing if he goes through! just because they've agreed terms and about to undergo a medical doesnt mean the deal is done just yet though!Siggy in the bag....whos next?......Personal terms have been agreed.Erm yes we have........

Norwich City to sign Ipswich left back Aaron Cresswell(3)(32)Doubt Norwich will make too many signings until Lambert's replacement is appointedBecause Ipswich proved to have a solid back line this past season.Not good enough prem LI can confirm that this is true...
I saw Delia wandering around Ipswich in a drunken state, shouting "Where are you, where are you, lets be 'aving you, c'mon"
I thought she was looking for Oddbins, but now it makes sense, she was trying to find Cressy!!! LOLRichard Cresswell more like it!Diame is going to a London club, according to Sky Sources...Is he coming to clean tierneys boots thats all that league 1 boy is fit forPretty sure Marc Tierney came from Colchester United? A League 1 team? Cresswell by far Ipswich's best player last year, though he won't be going anywhere having signed a long term contract earlier in the season.Delia wasn't looking for OddBins, she'd lost her Ipswich Till I Die T-Shirt!!

Newcastle ins and outs this summer:
Matt debuchy - lille - 6 million
Mapou Yanga M'Biwa - montpellier - 7 million or
Benedikt Howedes - schalke - 8 million
( deals for douglas and vertonghan have stalled)
Seim de jong - ajax - 5 million or
Benjamin cognet - dijon - 4 million
Bas Dost - herenveen - 6.5 million
Mohamed diame - wigan - free
Danny simpson - villa/qpr/fulham/wba - 4 million
Dan gosling - villa/norwich/reading - 1.5 million
Leon best - norwich/reading/villa - 3.75 million
Danny guthrie - villa/fulham/wba - 3.5 million
Peter lovekrands - ? - free

If demba ba leaves for around 7 million newcastle will replace him with twente striker luuk de jong for around 12 million
If cheick tiote leaves for around 20 to 25 million to either chelsea or arsenal newcastle will target asamoah from udinese for around 8 million(12)(44)West Ham have already bid 7 million for Bas Dost!Norwich won't be interested in Leon Best, especially at that price-the very definition of over rated and lacking in quality. Won't happen.Meanwhile back on earth.....Best- 3.75 million what you on? hes a championship player worth about 1-2 million at most nd Simpson is going to Wigan for about 2 million also heard Newcastle are going to be signing a new Japan midfielder called whymeCheick Tiote for 20 to 25 million? What planet do you live on?25 million for tiote are you for real?Guthrie is on a free. I believe he is 25 so no compensation would be due.You not signing 2 centre backs :SYou have to have a certain aount of english players in your match day squad in the prem so ur on crack m8Don't think Norwich would take Gosling unless he is meant to be a bench player, someone to create even more competition.
Best to Norwich might happen, don't think reading can attract him and Villa w/o a manager isn't the most sought out club to go to.Stop telling porkies, Manchester United had a bid of £12 million turned down for Asamoah last week, so why would his club sell to him Newcastle for £3 million less?No chance Newcastle gets 3.5 million pounds for Danny Guthrie. His contract will be expired at june 30, so his next club will not pay a cent! Get real!Let's face it vertonghen was never going to go to newcastleSomeones namin his signing on football managerrrrWhat a loada rubbish, somehow I think hes gonna end his career in Norwich. Whats more, Stoke are just overrated.Tiote was linked with chelsea for 20 million in january what are you sayinnnn ?Yanga-mbiwa going arsenal or man uHowedes will be too expensive. he wont cost 8m

Leicester City are set to enter the race to buy Bristol Rovers highly rated,attacking midfielder Mustapha Carayol

They will enter a bid of £1-2m, plus Tom Parkes and Cian Bolger on loan for the season, with the potential to buy.

Failing that, Leicester will continue their search for an attacking midfielder, Cameron Stewart, Robert Koren or Robbie Brady are all likely(17)(18)Whilst I would love for this to be true, I see there being absolutely no chance of us getting a million for Muzzy or the chance to sign Parkes and Bolger permanentlyFrom a Rovers point of view I'd be delighted with this deal for Muzzy. Top talent but £1 million plus Parkesy and Bolger would be fantastic for us. The option to buy them both is the most interesting part.

Any truth to it?He can keep his theiving hands of the Hull boys

Sunderland will keep most of there players including Sessegnon. Johnson won't join on loan however McGeady will be re-united with Marty and Danny Graham will sign as soon as Wolves stupidly high price-tag for a very average player becomes very frustrating. Don't rule out Craig Gardner moving on and of course everyone knows Richardson might be as well.(4)(17)Danny Graham plays for SwanseaBetter than your forward line oh wait I for got you have not got one that's why your after fletch anyway he turned you down bigger clubs after him but then again he hasn't said he wants to leaveAt 10-12 mil Fletcher is not over priced and how is 30 premier league goals in 3 season average? Torres has only scored 34 goals in the last 3 seasons. Sunderland had darren bent who scored 32 goals and sold him for £24 mil. So 10-12 mil is a bargain for fletcher if you ask me ;)Graham would cost more safc are after Hooper and IrelandAgree wouldnt pay more than5m for fletcher not sure graham is good enough thoDanny graham plays for swansea :S did you mean stephen fletcher?If your talking about Fletcher then you know nothing outside your own club, so be quiet!Sess will stay. elmo, richardson, gyan, ji, vaughan, gardner and fraizer campbell to leaveIf Sunderland are able to hold on to Sessegnon, they would have done extremely well, he is the ideal player to play the No 10 role.Danny graham not play for Swansea?Very average player? hes reached double figures in 2 seasons in a stuggling wolves team, can't be that bad can he?
sunderland payed over 10 million pound for that kid from ipswich!
wolves paid nearly 8 million pound for fletcher, and they DON'T NEED to sell, so they aint going to just fall to sunderlands feet and lost money, they will want to make profit.Fletch is no way over priced at 10-12 million, sunderland probably feel they can steel a bargain because Wolves were relegated. not so. we dont need the money like other relegated clubs so wont be held to ransom.Tbf I'm a Mackem and I no for a fact graham wouldn't join us as he's a geordie


27 May 2012 23:08:52
hi ed ny news on chelsea :)(3)(9)Yes, they are the worst team to have ever won the Champions League and there are 5 teams that finished above them in the Premior League!Must be a spurs fan lmaoVery bitter, considering they have been close before and that generation deserved it.Im a rangers fan and by the sour grapes lol you must be either arsenal or spurs, chelsea won it brilliantly, end off, WATP!!!Yes, Spurs fans are bitter. Of course, everybody knew what the rules were, but that does not stop the rules being wrong. For decades the old European Cup lived with the possibility of an additional entry from one country, so what has changed?

The simple truth is that the Champions League has so distorted football finances that all English clubs outside the 'Big Four' are a huge disadvantage. That has now been exacerbated by the arrival of Man City on the scene.

It is hard enough to finish in the top four in competition with clubs that have twice your revenue, or don't need to worry about money, but to have a Champions League qualification snatched away because Chelsea fluked wins against Barcelona and Bayern (both of whom played them off the park) is a bitter pill to swallow.

Burnley fc will this week confirm Jay rod will join Southampton fc on the 1st July for 6.5m(36)(30)Jay turned down Southampton in January and will be staying up north.No, burnley turned southamptons bid downNo they didn't burnley accepted their bid but jay turned Southampton down , and after this season with him scoring 21 goals burnley won't sell for less than 8mHe has just brought a house up north so why would he move he will go to everton newcastle or stay at burnley.Jay said he dint want to go thoughJay is on his way to southampton sadly, don't believe me if you don't want to but I heard from source inside the club (burnley) that the deal is nearly completed, this is why it's gone quite since the bid last week.
Burnley fanIn fact, Burnley have denied receiving an offer from us!So over rated. dumb signings like this put them into administration last time"So over rated. dumb signings like this put them into administration last time"

WE ARE NOT PORTSMOUTH FC YOU IDIOT! making stupid signings and paying ridiculous money did not result in Southampton FC going into administration!St Mary's and poor upper management put Southampton in administration last time genius.^^^^^BOUGHT a house.Dumb signings like this? Saints to say the least are Frugal with the cash for signings hence why Rory Delap for 4 million is still our record. Its other issues that caused our financial problems so read up before you mutter nonsenseOver rated ? Only 1 ov your players scored more than jay last season !^ Billy Sharp scored more league goals than J-Rod did mateHe's class and it wasn't a Saints fan who said he's over rated. As for buying a house, wanting to stay up north blah, blah, blah, heard all that crap with Billy Sharp.One player did score more....alot more! sharp wasnt far of rod lallana banged home plenty and guly got at least 12 in all what exactley os your point? burnley fans told us cork would never join so why not rod?Burnley rejected Saints bid when they were in the championship. Now that we're in the premier league he will want to go because of premier league football. Also now that we're under Cortese he won't let administration happen again and we have the financial capability to buy Jay rod i am pretty sure.Some people just dont have a clue. The football club never went into administration, the leisure holdings company that own it did.Jay is bad and over rated 15 goals in the championship isnt 8M worthAnd Btw billy sharp scored more then Jay so thats 2 playersActually two players did, Lambert and Sharp.Not what saints need. Sharp is as good as jay rod.Jay Rod is still only 21 and he isn't overrated as he plays as a second striker and still scored 15 in the championship despite being out for the last 5 and if he does join it will be funny how many Southampton fans jump ship when they see how good he is!Billy sharp didn't play for you for the full season . He wasn't even your player when he scored half ov his goalsOk then so how many goals did billy sharp score for Southampton last season ? Not a lot coz he didn't even play for you until half way thru the season , silly Southampton fans that think they will buy evry 1 coz they are the next man city n guna win the premier league , wait till ur back down at end ov next season wi less points than derby hahaPoster above - Up late on a school night? My little niece writes like you! Saints fans do not think they are the next Man City and please show me a Saints fan who thinks they will win the Premier League! FFS! Billy Sharp scored more than Rodriguez last season regardless wether it was with Saints or Doncaster, thats a fact and thats what they were pointing out. They wont get relegated either. So stop with the bitterness and jealousy...oh and dont forget to be tucked in by your mummy.Ok then fair play to Southampton for getting promoted but the thing is tho they NEED to stay up coz if they don't a lot of their players are on high wages so what's guna happen if they go back down with the new financial rules coming into play ? Especially with them signing more players as well their wages r guna b sky highSharp came here with 9 goals, scored 10 for Southampton. Goals should continue to happen for Southampton considering they have had a bid of £6.5 million accepted this evening for Rodriguez. Poor Burnley.Bid might ov bin accepted but like b4 jay will reject u !There are relegation clauses in the players contracts SHOULD Saints go down. Cortese is a financial businessman he would not let anything like that happen to the club.And how do YOU know that these clauses are in place ??Because you dont know do u !Are you sure its not your little niece, mate? Just say 'ok dear, whatever you say dear'.

Ed any Portsmouth rumours?(4)(21)Of course not, you have no money!No. You've got no money. Pay the small businesses and charities you owe first then start talking about transfers.Your skintNo and there shouldn't be, not until your club faces up to its financial responsibilities. Do so or go under.^^ saints fans lol bottom by xmas :)If Portsmouth sign any players, it will be on free transfers and lowish wages.RubbishHow stupid are you Pompey fans? How can you 'lol' at saints (who I don't support) when they are in the premiership and you are in LEAGUE 1 with a large chance of liquidation. So LOL at AFC Portsmouth City, conference south by Xmas :)Rumours could include players out.Okay so we're in debt.. who isn't? does that mean we have to go out of buisness for it to be 'fair' if so where does the line end?Pay all youre debts in full
before you should be allowed
to sign anybody
if you go down tough
you aint learnt nothing
in the last two years
and you want sympathy
it aint going to happen^ hey friend. how about all the teams (in debt) pay their debts before they buy more players? otherwise theyre just gonna get into more debt... and then (in this climate) just gonna end up like us anyway... hmmmAlmost every football club is in debt. We've got a £48million debt where as Man United have a debt in the region of £800million. So before you start talking rubbish, realise the Football League are just looking for someone as a cheap shot of a scapegoat. My best regards to Pompey. Best fans I've ever come across. All the best for League One. - Reading fan.If you really were a Reading fan you'd know we are debt free. Hance why we always sold our best players so we could stay in the black.,Pompey are handling administration and have been punished just as every other club in that situation has been so give them a break. I suspect it is largely Saints fans who keep going on about this but before they get too carried away they should look to their own past problems and maybe even consider that bythe season after this they could even be playing Pompey again! We should all be careful what we wish on other fans!I've heard a rumour that if they are lucky, Portsmouth might just be able to feild 11 players by the beginning of the season!All the post said was ed any portsmouth rumours it didnt say are pompey buying anyone so he might have just been wandering like many of us if anyone else had been sold...stop jumping on the pompey bandwagon you muppets!Portsmouth may sign keiran blackman on a free with the lowest pay they will have to pay £750 a week

Charlton will look to re-sign Middlesbrough midfielder nicky bailey. It is been rumoured he is unhappy up north and that his family still live in London(14)(11)This would be a truely terrible signing for Powell. Definitely a few other CM's that are better that we could affordDepends how much this deal would cost. Bailey was a great player for charlton but don't feel that charlton could afford a player that I believe is premier league qualityMate I'm best friends with his brother in-law and he tells me Nicky is loving life up north. So this is clearly made up.It's believable but not for the reason stated, it would be the clubs choice to increased funds. His family love the areaStep back I reckon - Jackson is better wide than him and I think Pritchard will break through in the centreBailey was bad news, thought he was billy big bcks in league 1. Always laid into players when they made mistakes, although he used give the ball away in our own half by dicking around and trying to take people on. He also tried getting people sent off by going down all the time. It was also Bailey who missed the penalty against Swindon and then pissed off to boro.Leadbitter will replace him, he will go but to a team of higher standing you can't go from boro to Charlton massive step back, money will be used to improve attackBailey won't go to Charlton it would be a step back even for a player as st as him he makes to many mistakes to attract a prem club but he wouldn't stoop as low as CharltonI wouldnt say that at all, i think bailey was outstanding but i wouldnt welcome him back as we dont need himBailey is not who we need he is a decent player but you could get some one twice as good for the same price he is over ratedCharlton gave him he's big break so maybe that could come into it. You couldn't blame him for joining boro but if it hasn't worked out I'm sure charlton would welcome him backJust in add my opinion, as a boro fan, despite personal opinions of him as a bloke, he has been outstanding in the games ive been too, gets motm awards all the time, not our most talented player, but certainly our best performer all seasonBailey would get in the charlton team without a doubt, but, bailey isn't an attacking midfielder anymore mogga has made him into a very good defensive midfielder, fulham, villa and Swansea bin linked with him, as for BORO, leadbitter will be a good signing,"Bailey was a great player for charlton" Are you out of your mind! He was and is a terrible player and I dont want him back no matter how little he costs.All I can say is, if bailey is a terrible player than he would suit been at charlton cuz he'd fit in well there.on the serious side charlton couldn't afford him now and why would nicky take a step back and join charlton,it dosent make any sense,mogga is back at work now so exspect 1 or 2 signings by next weekA key player in Boro's side would be difficult to replace. Charlton fans obviously still think they are big time and have very little respect as to what he did for them as a player.Would hardly be a step back charlton are a bigger club than boro or maybe the boro fans just decide to dress up as seats every weekBoro have been going backwards for years, lets be honest. As for what Bailey did for us, he got us knocked out of the playoffs with his stupidity. The amount of mistakes the boy makes do not make up for any good play he has in him. Not wanted or required in SE7. If you love him fair enough you keep him.Sorry Charlton fans but you really are not bigger than The Boro. Just because we dont sell our seats doesnt make us a small club. In an area of mass unemployment, we sell the correct percentage in line with our catchment area. Dont sour the taste of your promotion by having ideas of grandure. I for one was glad to see you promoted as i see you as a similar club too our own. Obviously far too big for league one, not quite good enough for the prem, but possibly too good for the championship. Theres a lot of clubs like us. So instead of coming on here bragging about your promotion and how big you are, enjoy your current success as the forthcoming season is going to very tough for us all. Look at the sides in the league, the majority of the teams in our league have been in the prem in the last 10 years, so getting promoted to the premier league is getting harder than ever.Btw, Bailey is a class holding midfielder, but offers nothing going forward. He's had a good season at The Boro, so the only place he's going is to a premier league club.His goals had a big hand in getting you there in the first place.

We will see who is the bigger side when we dick all over you this season.

OH NICKY BAILEY!..Can't believe anyone who is associated with Charlton would even suggest that they are any where near the size of a club like Middlesbrough!yes they may have been on a decline but back in the ascendancy now obviously a lot of comments here are based on bias and not fact!!Offers nothing going forward? He scored once every 3 and a half games as a Charlton player. It's just his role at Boro dictating how he plays.Yep when at charlton, he was a big fish in a .....puddle. now he's a decent sized fish in a big pond. UTB!We played Bailey as a LM most of the time hence his goal record . Would rather have Jackson in the side thoughCant believe how this has gone on, lets be honest both teams have been a massive let down the last few years a mix of bad management and the boards. The momentum has to be with Charlton now though teams that get promoted always start well in the Championship and push for promotion (Swansea). Boro are a big club but you have to admit youve gone stale and will have to pull something out the bag to even get play offs next season.
Bailey was a good player for charlton any player that shows passion will do well at the Valley. I wouldn't mind him coming back he was a battler and that's exactly what you need in the championship. Pritchard will do well but I can see Stephens and Hollands getting bullied when we move up to the much more physical league.

Lewis Grabbon has now accepted a revised salary package and is due to be unveiled as a Crawley player tomorrow.
Strange really, but Steve Evans wanted him when he was at Crawley, but not now he is at Rotherham.(4)(12)Grabban wants to move back down south,Rotherham will use the money to bring in another strikerI don't the move is because of the manager. I think he wants a move back down south to closer to where he his from

Paul green has put talks with Ipswich on hold untill he returns from the euros after his late call up to replace the injured fahey.
Talks are believed to be at an advanced stage but if green has a good showing in euros interest in the midfielder/ full backs signature could increase.

Ipswich also rumoured to be looking into bringing
Ryan nielsen to portman road on a 2 year deal with the player reportedly willing to drop wages to carry on playing in england.charlon,Bolton and wolves also interested in the new Zealand captain(7)(16)Utter crap whos dreaming up this bsSeems ipswich are signing ever available player,lol, what a jokeThat's why belongs on his way to the mls?Nelson sorry dam phone


27 May 2012 19:13:29
does anyone have a clue who bournemouth are looking at signing.(3)(15)Yeah, Paul Groves does.Josh mcquoid if malone goes or james hayter on a free.
Miles Addison if the price is right and he wants to returnDo you really think he has a clue about playersChris ImwelumoTorres to Bournemouth. Sergio that is. (Crawley)Eddie Mitchell had an absolute shocker appointing groves! Why he didn't get o'driscoll back or an experienced manager like Gary Johnson I will never know. He struck gold with an inexperienced Howe but that was a one off. I would love Groves to prove me wrong but I think it will be the same old average season with average signings. If we are going for promotion let's go for promotion and not d£ck about!!

We'd definitely have more chance than most clubs due to our links in the past. Personally I'd like to see Josh King returnYeah josh king was class for hull

Yorkshire news: Sufc news
Kevin MacDonald to move on a free across the steel city. This was agreed before the playoff defeat Lee Williamson to have talks with Hull City this week
Barnsley to sign Mike Jones from Owls for £150K. Daniel Jones from Owls to Doncaster Rovers for a nominal fee. Owls to sign unamed striker from Championship. Dave Jones refusing to give details until personal terms agreed but player wants to join.(6)(12)I know the K Mac thing is correct. DJ been courting him since taking over from Megson. In fairness to the lad he was keeping his options open until he saw Owls get promoted. Even if Blades had been promoted he has a verbal agreement to join Owls if they got promotion.
Would be happy with Mike Jones joining us. I believe we tried for him last season. Come on you TykesWilliamson to Hull ur havin a laugh. Has already said he's joinin the mighty FoxesSadly the MacDonald to Wendy's is true. Even McCabe couldn't get him to stay with us. Worse is I've been told Maguire also off to owls as he's an owl himself. Typical Wendy's stealing our talent"Williamson to Hull ur havin a laugh. Has already said he's joinin the mighty Foxes"
Is there anyone you AREN'T signing? Surprised I didn't hear your name mentioned for Hazard??
You've got a bit of money, fair enough, now show some class!Weds nicking maguire ha ha your nicked him off barnsley pmpl


27 May 2012 18:39:05
Aston Villa could look to sign Yakubu as he says he doesn't want to play in the Championship(19)(12)Well whats the point in signing for villa they will be in the championship the season after next, don't think the yak will want another relegation battle on his cvAnother person slagging off a great and historic football club im not a villa fan but the flak they get is a total disgrace.Totally agree with you.
It is a total disgrace to see it happening!
but with the return of Darren Bent & a better manager - they will be fine next season!I'm not a Villa fan either, but, living in the Midlands, I can tell you that it's about time they went through some tough crap. Some of them have been yelping 'top four club' for a long time, even though a lot of money and opportunities were chucked away and a lot of Villa fans didn't mind burning money until time was called on the use of a blank cheque. I don't feel sorry for them and neither should you.

Brighton have now sold 21,000 season
tickets, Gus has the cash to take the club onto the next level, Three top signings are
ear marked, Owen, Heskey, and a midfielder from spain. Gus has told players already they are not in his plans.. back them now for winning the league(7)(39)Forget Owen and Heskey as we don't want them. wages as well. We'd have sold 23,000 season tickets come August.What a load of friendly southern se, no history, no fans, no'll be down next yearBrighton will be dropping down the table next season dramatically.Until Liverpool appoint their manager I doubt the Brighton board will not part with any cash for new players!...why I hear you ask? If Martinez goes to the Red side of merseyside then Wigan as well as Villa and West Brom will be wanting a manager. Poyet will defo be offered the job by one of them. Brightons new boss will then be given the transfer budget and I have it on good authority that Di Canio will be that man.Brighton dropping don't me make laugh. We will be fighting for a top 6 spot for sure.Brighton need to add at least 4 quality players to have any chance of even getting top sixExplain WHY we'll drop next season?..'No fans'? Full grounds week in week out says otherwise. Highest percentage attendance by capacity in the ChampionshipBecause they are a palace fan...They will drop cos teams have worked them out be realistic Brighton exceeded everyone's expectations last seasonNo History?! Founded in 1901 - think that's 111 years of History!Biggest load of tosh ever. Your capacity is 22,374. You have NOT sold 21,000 season tickets as they won't allow that. A certain percentage has to remain open for other fans who can't afford ST, and also some allocation is needed for away fans. So firstly this discredits everything else you have said. Secondly, even if you had sold 21,000 ST's, it would not fund 3 top signings, unless your ST's are ridiculously over priced for a small club that's punching above it's weight.

No chance of you winning the league with Blackpool, Cardiff, Blackburn, Bolton, Wolves. No chance. You may have had a high attendance this season (btw percentage doesnt really make a good statistic due to the fact your stadium is so fking small), but good luck competing next year.

Money on brighton to make the drop.Even a Palace fan wouldnt be that bitter. Its amazing how many people (i wont say fans because they obviously know jack about football) are critical of Brighton for being back on their feet. Part of the reason Brighton are back on their feet are because of the fans ! So whatever tool said 'no fans, no history, we'll be down next year is suffering a severe case of.....JEALOUSY !ENVY is a terrible mistress.for fourteen years we did,nt have a home or two pennies to rub we are getting the reward we have earnt with our loyalty.LIVE WITH IT.No history? Do you think that we have only been around twenty years or so? We were established in 1901.

Check your facts PalarseTrolErrm. to whoever wrote 'biggest load of tosh' - their are 8,000 seats currently being installed and therefore capacity is increasing to 30,000 for the start on 2012/13 season and they HAVE sold this many season tickets. Your a foolish individual - You dont know anything about Brighton so dont go disputing or disagreeing with FACT if you know. You go put your money on Brighton to make the drop if you that confident.........Im sure you'll have butterflys when you hand over you money. Because you wont see that again.Brighton are full of true, honest, faithful supporters who have stuck with there team through thick and thin over the past 15 years or so. Within that time until the AMEX, they have had no ground and at times no money and a bleak future. Still, the fans kept turning up...AND supporting other teams in simular unfortunate circumstances.
Are Brighton not allowed to have a change of fortune?
A famous old club with a traditional football history.
Any true BHA fan reading these bitter/jealousy influenced comments are just laughing.....and so are the true Football fans !Capacity was 22,374 but additional 5,000 seat expansion will be completed ready for the start of next season making it the 27th biggest stadium in the country excluding Wembley - a bigger capacity than Selhurst all you jealous Palace fans!Brighton are not allowed to sell that may season tickets as a previous poster stated so this post has no credibility. Brighton will not win the Championship, they are not a big club. Mid table Championship team at best.Brighton have sold 21 thousand season tickets and yes they can do this to the loser who said they can't. The reason being is that they are increasing their capacity to 30,500 from 20,500.Our capacity WAS 22,374(last season) if YOU knew what you were talking about you would know that we are putting in 5000 more seats as we talk.Thats why we HAVE sold 21000 ST,and will sell more yet.Check the pics on our siteCapacity will be 27,000 by the start of the season, 5000 extra seats going in. That will rise again to 30,000 before the start of 2013-14 season.
10% must be available for away support in the league but 15% in cup games.
So just over 4000 is what cannot be sold as season tickets but I think the club retains some also for safety and complimentarys.
There were 18000 season tickets sold last season and more than 3000 joined a waiting list for new season tickets.
I expect at least 22,000 season tickets will be offered and sold.Check your facts re stadium before making silly comments about the Amex capacity. It is being increased to 30,750, with a majority (5000+) being installed now.TO the person who called this post misinformed 'tosh'. We are expanding our capacity to 28000 this summer and it is a fact that we have sold around 20000 season tickets! I'd do some real research before you post! It is so pathetic that bitter opposition fans like you turn your jealousy to spiteful abuse. It is clear to anyone who even vaguely understands football that Brighton are on the up and will do well next season, and I really couldn't care less what you lot think.Brighton are not on the up. If your going by stadium capacity their are bigger clubs with bigger stadiums than you in the Championship. Brighton wont win the league as the poster said.Yes we have sold 21,000 season tickets, because the stadium is being expanded, will be a 30,000 seater by next year. Get your facts right, make statements about things you have no idea about."Biggest load of tosh ever. Your capacity is 22,374. You have NOT sold 21,000 season tickets as they won't allow that. A certain percentage has to remain open for other fans who can't afford ST, and also some allocation is needed for away fans. So firstly this discredits everything else you have said. Secondly, even if you had sold 21,000 ST's, it would not fund 3 top signings, unless your ST's are ridiculously over priced for a small club that's punching above it's weight.

Money on brighton to make the drop"

EPIC FAIL, of monumental proportions. If you had one iota of insight into of footie knowlege, rather than just babble on about you your own fantasies, you would know that Brighton capacity is being increased to 30,075, go and look at the pictures on

Or perhaps talk about something you actually know about, discredit your own made up postCapacity for the 12/13 season will actually be 27,374 due to an additional 5,000 seats being put in this summer. Making the Amex the 27th biggest club stadium in the country and just over a thousand seats higher than Selhurst Park.Brighton are adding around 5,500 seats now with more coming on stream in decenber 12 and a final 2,000+ next summer. Total capacity from August 12 will be 28,000 reaching 30,800 Summer 2013. Sales of 21,000 Season tickets entirely likely as season ticket sales for the season just finished were 18,000 and most of the new additional 3,200 seats in the East stand now sold.Get your facts right extra seats going in this year and next this years capacity will b about 28,000 going up to over 30,000! so small i wouldnt say that! and season tickets are up on last season and then we had 18,000! so all you small minded people who kmnow nothing should keep quite! i used to watch brighton in the goldstone in the late 70s when they used to have to lock the doors with 30,000 in and that was league 2 so the only thing small is your mind!Couldnt care less about how many the stadium holds, Brighton will not win the league! Your not a big club like most Brighton fans think they are...Your a mid table Championship team.Get the facts right The AMEX had 22,000 and after the new seating upgrade will have 8,000 more u jealous palace fan!!Forget all the arguments about stadium capacity etc, 22,000 season ticket sales still cant fund a move for owen and heskey, the wages would be too high!


27 May 2012 18:35:30
barnsley have captured arron wilberham an simeon jackson(5)(17)No they haven't.Completely made-up - Wilbraham is a free agent, will probably end up at any of 15 Championship clubs (maybe even Barnsley). Simeon Jackson is a first-team regular for Norwich, has looked decent, and is probably worth at least £2m which means he definitely isn't on Barnsley's radar.


27 May 2012 18:35:27
Stoke City are plotting a bid for Norwich City's Grant Holt, thought to be in the region of £3.5m. However, Sunderland, Everton and West Ham are also keen on the 31 year-old.(20)(24)I hope not hes got one season left him inRejected in a heartbeat.Sunderland bound with fletcherStoke are after a striker of far better quality that Holt, trust me. Sunderland are welcome to him.

a very good striker will join the Potters in late June, early July.He is better than every other cf u have other than crouch. He scored more than him as well.Stoke need a lot more than Holt. They need a new playbook, a new back line, and a new midfield, lets go with a new manager too. the long-throw-in only works for so long.Stoke, haha better quality striker, maybe another 6ft 7 giant to launch the ball to. Absolute joke of a team.From the goodison point of view, all they above are wecome, to old, to slow, won't get 1o goals next season.The only joke is you shouldnt be so jealous about the migfhty potters.Oh please God no, we don't want him!Love how everyone thinks stoke still do the throw in when delap never even plays get your facts right before you come on here and rip in to a team you don't watch every gameIs this very good striker Lukaku by any chance?As a Norwich Fan I suspect he will not score as many goals next season, however he would still probably get 10, which is what Crouch managed last season so if he was sold for £3.5M he would still look cheap compared to Crouch.From the goodison point of view? haha we are better than stoke and sy sunderland put toghether, get a grip!Stoke have completely ruined the prem. Not a football teamWhy because we don't role over and have our bellies tickled by the top 4, get a grip 4 seasons unbeaten by any of the top 6 at home this season, last 32 in Europe and 1/4 finalists in the F.A. Cup, sounds like a team ruining the prem! Who do u support, let me guess one of the top 6Not that old chestnut...try something new.Well if we've ruined the prem for you get yourselves relegated cause we aren't planning it any time soon!Remind me, where did stoke finish this season? joke of a team.HE'S NOT LEAVING for the last timeShows how much Stoke rattle the Prem league looking at this thread :-)

To all the un-educated, Stoke haven't scored from a throw in in 14 months but some idiots can't see past their thick stereotyping. As for Holt, when he scores at international and CL level then compare him to Crouch.

Here's to another season of the Potters winding you all up again :-)

Norwich will go down next season- one season wondersStoke finished still in the prem, not in debt and with a core of British players, now theres something you dont see everyday!Hes way to old at thirty one plus without holt norwich are looking at demotion

Another one who's signing for Preston... They're gonna have a squad of 96 players at this rate. Getting boring PNE fans.He has not signed yet as he is still weighing up all his options no doubt. Barnsley, Stevenage and Preston are all in for the kidMorais IS on holiday. he's gone with several other Latics players as mentioned by one of them on twitter. That supporter who claims to have seen him needs his eyes testing.A 'six-figure sum' from Barnsley was rejected, a number of Championship clubs are looking interested in him...he'll end up going for an inflated price, far more than Barnsley can afford more than likely.Trust Keith Hill to pay 'six figures' for a free agent, you so called fans need to get a life

RVP is going to leave Arsenal this season with Dempsey, Hoilett and Jean Pierre Gignac coming in with the funds created. He will be joining Man Utd or Real as the arsenal board were hoping to do a deal that saw Milner and Johnson come the other way this has been knocked back. AFC disappointed given their recent sales of players to City.

Chamakh, Bendtner, Diaby (Gignac deal) and Walcott will all be going. Plus Agbonlahor will be leaving Villa with Spurs and Arsenal poised to go head to head. Vertonghen will not join spurs or arsenal he instead will be joining UTD. Arsenal are expected to conclude all transfer dealings within the next three weeks. RVP deal to be concluded after Euros(9)(21)Agbonlahor will be leaving Aston villa because hes not good enough.Awful strike record just pace.He dosent Deserve champions league footballIs that Andre Pierre Gignac's brother?

Bristol Rovers have rejected bids from both Middlesbrough and Barnsley for young winger Mustapha Carayol.(16)(3)Boro mean business next season, carayol, ledesma and will Keane are just 3 of the attacking talents lined up, other names set for the riverside are lead bitter, Jacob butter field and Glenn loovensYou haven't got Muzzy just yet. Pay what he's worth to us and then get excited about the prospect of having him at your club!What do rovers fans think his value is? Do you think he is good enough for the championship?Rotherham united also had a 175k bid turned down and have been told to atleast triple the fee 100% true and carayol could favour a move to rotherham as they have great facilities and is a cert to get 1st team football but he is too good for league2!If he had 2 years left on his deal I'd want no less than £600k for him plus a sell-on clause and other bonuses. If he signs an extension I think we'll get that at least.

If he doesn't sign a new deal then I'd accept £300k + the clauses.He will obviously choose the millers then,unless he smells the coffee !!Im very good friends will muzzy and he is quite happy to stay in bristol for now he does not want big move up north away from his friends and family his family is based in tourquayWhich player in the country if played for Bristol who?? Had the chance to go to a club with a recent good pedigree as Middlesbrough do, wouldn't go? I think Bristol fans are just hoping he makes the worst decision of his life he is a professional footballer moving is a given in that profession!Muzzy family are based in London not torquay as it's where he is from and he as said so on twitter

Burnley boss Eddie Howe is winning the race to sign Derby Centre Back Jason Shackell.(17)(14)What Race?.Hes not for Sale unless a price of 5 million is given as thats what was derby have said hes worth due to the importance he has to derby because of barkers injury.If you were thinking that you could get him for 2 million you dont even have that as the money you get for Rod will be used to pay of your big debt and find a replacement striker.1. "your big debt" - Burnley have no debt and are one of the most finanically sound clubs in the league.
2. "unless a price of 5 million is met" - good one.
3. "What race" - the one that states clubs are circulating around Shackell in the QUALITY Sunday tabloids.Clubs may be circulating, it is to be expected for someone of Shackell's quality. Does that mean there is a 'race'? No, not at all, until Derby receive a bid in the region of £4-5m, he will not be leaving the club.Rubbish. Derby declined the offer, he is NOT for sale, and shackell has siad himself he is staying as 'derby has a very promising future...i want to be part of it'The problem for clubs wanting to buy Shackell is the fee that got paid for Matt Mills...Shackell is on a par with Mills and he went for £5.5mUntil Derby receive a bid in the region of £4-5m, he will not be leaving the club.

If you honestly believe that your an idiot. A deal for Shackell will be concluded in the next few weeks and the fee will be nowhere near that.Clough has said that he will not be selling him unless we get 2 mil so i doubt itWell i hope u got over 2mill easy to get him cus he aint goin anywhere for lessSays who ? They rejected a 1.2m bid from us so don't think burnley will pay more than that for him !Matts mills played awful this season and was worth 5 million.Shackell just missed out Player of the season.If he was worth
1.8 million when he came he would have doubled to 3.6 million.But then because he was a long long target of nigel cloughs as he wanted to have the barker and shackell partnership and with barker progressing realling well and could feature in the last couple of games of next season he wouldnt want to break it up especially after only one season.If derby Needed money instead of cashing in on A VERY VERy important player and captian next season they would sell a couple of their hot prospects.We dont need money we have a good squad the players leaving have already been highlighted.Clough said that the article about shackell on sky sports is they didnt know whether shackell would want to stay with some of our bigger players leaving.But as someone has already put when he was asked he said " Derby has a promising future and i want to be apart of that".As Nigel clough said its not about the money it would be if there was anyone out there to replace shackell and he said there isnt.What race ? It has been made clear that he is not moving and if he does move it will be to a top championship club or a carp prem team . He is already at a mid table club and won't want to move to another . Up the rams !!!!!!5 mil? Deluded much. I'd happily accept 2.5-3mil. He's not that goodHe's not for saleBurley fan he's not for sale and so there us no race. I live near Shackell and he has said to some people near me he's not goingIm a george burley fan tooThere is no massive debt we are one of the most financially viable clubs in the Championship we have had no loans at all from a bank and we are about to pay of shareholders. Look at the accounts!We don't want him any way jUst another Clarke Carlisle , Not consistent enough and ur saying 3 mill ur Avin a laff there's plenty more defenders out there for much less than that !Plenty more better defenders for much less should I say !

Nathaniel Clyne is debating over a number of offers for the coming season. He has declined offers from Crystal Palace and Southampton and is set to join one of, Newcastle United, Fulham or Liverpool. Although Clyne is apparantly waiting in hope that Manchester United come in for him.(14)(9)HA! he will be waiting for a long time then.Yeah,he'll be too old to go anywhere then.Norwich I thinkMan u are set to make a 2.2m bid so he wont wait long

Crystal Palace youngster Ryan Inniss is going to be joining Aldershot Town on a season long loan next season. Dougie Freedman believes that Inniss needs game time but is not quite yet old enough for the standard of football in the Championship.(8)(6)Gardners a by far better player than tunchev


27 May 2012 16:25:16
It is believed that Dougie Freedman wanted either Aleksander Tunchev OR Anthony Gardner at Crystal Palace next season. Tunchev has agreed a deal and will be announced as a Palace player on Monday which paves the way for Gardner to join one of the other two clubs who have offered him a contract (Burnley & Middlesbrough)(3)(10)Who's Anthony Gardner??Does not fit into our age range - we only sign players who are under 25Former England international, member of the 5th best defence in the league last year, plastic fan might not have heard of himTold that Tunchev to cpfc is now a no go


27 May 2012 16:25:10

Joel Ward's move to Crystal Palace will be announced on Monday around Midday along with the signing of Aleksander Tunchev.

Ward's transfer fee is higher than first believed. An initial £500,000 will be paid to Portsmouth up front with another possible £150,000 depending on appearances and whether Palace make promotion.(7)(11)Haha palace make promotion! Lol!Why not, they have b4. So negative. Who would've thought same bout us pompey boys n us stayin 7 yrs in Prem!Told that Tunchev to cpfc is now a no go

Hulk and Lucas Moura are both at Stamford Bridge to discuss personal terms with Chelsea with both signing for £35m. Hazard will confirm his move to Chelsea for £31m on Saturday. Hazard will take no.11, Lucas no.14 and Hulk no.13(9)(38)Hazard will sign for man utd,only way he will go to chelsea if they put silly money in front of him.Well Chelsea were the ones who started the silly money why not finish it !....More wishful thinking from Chelsea fans.Reckon Hazard to Chelsea is right - he wants to play and United and City are already strong on the wings.

Chelsea lack exactly that so he'll be straight in the teamHazard can play in a central role

Chesterfield close to signing former barnsley goalie david preece(12)(6)Why when they have tommy lee and have just signed O'DonnellNo chanceThis could be true because my sorce told me that Tommy Lee us looking to move away from the B2net destination Sheffield UnitedWe wouldn't sell tommy to sheff utdDont believe it mate Tommy could well be onhis wayTommy lee is goin to Sheff u, he was seen coming out of brammall lane earlier, gutted as a chesterfield fan, he always gave his best but u can't blame him for wanting to stay in league one. But to Sheff u!? And all the blades saying he wasn't good enough for them. And now they r happyEarlier?? When??When did you see him at Sheffield.Tommy lee is in mexico palWhy would tommy lee go to sheffield utd when leeds, barnsley and derby want him? he's said his self he loves chesterfield! no doubt he was best keeper in league 1 and chesterfield want to keep him. but i think myself he will go for around £750k to leedsLeeds cant pay that sort of money not with bates in chargeNo link between tommy lee and sheff utd as reported earlier on twitter

Sunderland in talks with Blackburn regarding Yakubu for 1.5 million and O'neil very keen on signing Ireland but needs to wait till Villa have new manager and theres interest in Hooper from Celtic depending on price

Sunderland out
Cattermole- Everton
Mccarthy- WHU
Bramble- Norwich

Heard all this today!(10)(24)Ireland would be a decent replacement for cattermole but would prefer milner, I like catts but would be happy for the others being sold, if we feed the YAK he will scoreHow would sunderland ever be able to afford milner? he was bought for £24 million you inbredWhy would everton take catermole he is a load of she and he would never get over FELLAINI , osman, Gibson , Rodwell and Cahill plus everton would rather spend the little money we have on a good playerRubbish post - There is no way Bramble will be signed by Norwich, he has a bad history with staying on the right side of the law when out clubbing and Lambert will not even consider signing him, nor would we want a player who can best be described as an accident waiting to happen.
That why Chris Martin will be sold by Norwich, when they get a decent offer for him.Because they made a typo means they're talking rubbish? oh mystic meg, please tell me more from your know-it-all fountain of knowledge.Cattermole is just about sunday league standard never mind Everton standardThis being the same Martin O'Neill who left Villa because Villa forced Ireland on him as part of the Milner deal? Get real numptyMartin O'neil left Villa because he wanted to keep Milner and sign Ireland not in Swap + plus cash deal {Ed001's Note - no he never. He left because Lerner told him he had to reduce the wage bill and stop signing players only to sit them on the bench. Nothing to do with Ireland or Milner at all. He threw his toys out of his pram because Lerner wasn't going to let him waste more money on reserves.}

jabo ibehre will make a sentimental return to leyton orient this week when he rejoins the club on a one year deal after being released by the franchise(3)(9)If this is true I will be so happy but could you tell me the source pleasePlease God hope this isn't true. I've seen enough of Jabo over the years to know he wont improve the team. We need a goalscorer !"Please God hope this isn't true. I've seen enough of Jabo over the years to know he wont improve the team. We need a goalscorer !"

27 May 2012 15:46:17
Norwich are said to be planning on dipping into the leads squad again to pluck out the cream of the crop, or so it were.
At the top of the list is Snodgrass. Despite Warnocks media notification that he hopes to keep him for another season, the clubs CEO and owners are unlikely to keep him one more season to let his contract expire at the end of the 2012/2013 season and allow him to move to a premier league team on a free.
With that, as the Canaries look to sort their woeful back four out. A move for the youngster Aiden White at 2.5m. White will replace versatile R. Martin on the left as he makes a shift to CB(10)(11)The fact that you spell Leeds with an a already tells us your taking rubbishLikewise Russell Martin plays at right back not left back.Why not sign johnson or dann for 4 millionYou can have aidey White he's rubbish but you can't have snoddyBendtner to Norwich what a load of bull Lambert would never go for him to expensive in wages


27 May 2012 15:44:54
Ross Mc Cormack is joining Simon Grayson at Championship side Huddersfield Town.He sees Leeds as contenders for a relegation battle next season.(23)(23)And how the hell would you know how he feels,same as most on here,if theres no news make it up,pathetic.Only in exchange for RhodesMcormack wont go to a team who will struggle to stay up ,and we all know grayson is leeds through and through, thats why rhodes will be at elland road next season MOTOn less money as hudders pathetic turnover compared to leeds means thay can not get near what he is being offered at leeds,the new financial rule is bad news for the small clubs with small turnoverTown Cant afford Clayton? Think you forget how rich Hoyle is..Pathetic turnover. Commercially we were the best club in league 1 and will be one of the best in the Championship. Financial rules will not effect us. We don't pay passed it premiership plays 20k - 30k a week!...Michael Brown!!Struggle to stay up. I don't think so...Who's putting all there best players on the transfer list...Oh yeah....Leeds!..Bates won't spend his money either. Snodgrass will be on his way...who does that leave?...No one..It should be Leeds who should be worriedLol, all you second rate teams no nowt, once one season wonder rhodes has gone its back down for no mark town and our simon will jump ship. all players on the transfer list not good enough to play for the mighty whites anymore MOTHudds are replacing rhodes who is norwich bound with mcormackHudders make a loss every yr with only £5mill turnover this yr compared to leeds utd's £34mill,bit of a difference so don't matter if Hoyle has money as the club makes no profit hense will not be able to pay as much as leeds utd,deal with it championship's newest cannon fodderThat was going so well until you spelt hence wrong. but also lets not forget that huddersfield have been in league 1 and Leeds in the championship. you have a turn over of 34 million? lets see how much Mr bates is willing to give. my guess would be nothing. town have got a new financial boost by getting promoted and now tv rights. so.i wouldn't say we are going to be that poor financially. infact huddersfield may well hold their own. but we will see. there are worse teams in this league and also worse run teams. {Ed003's Note - I think you will be fine in the championship}What Leeds fans dont realise which is Hilarious is that Bates has never spent a penny and £34 million pah STREIGHT IN THE RETIREMENT FUND and also leeds fans any one read what snograss put this week? Going to Norwich because the chairmen has no ambition that says it allNew owners soon numpty, we could buy 10 jordan rhodes, but he aint good enough for mighty whites MOTHeard that town are in for sammy ameobi on a season long loan ... i know a guy who works as a cleaner for town

Chamach to Lille-£3million
Hazard to Man U-£28million
Hulk to Chelsea-£25million
Pedretti to Villa-£8million
Hoillet to Newcastle-£3million(18)(32)Prices are wrong for one, E.G Chelsea tabled £30m for Hulk, and Porto want closer to £40m...Well arsenal are ment to have turnet down a 7m offer for chamack so why sell for 3m????Arsenal turned down £7 million get a grip he's not worth £1 millionI assume the 3m for hoillet is the compensation that will be paid? and I'm sure there was an offer at around 20m for Giroud which was turned down.Hoillet is on a free? So why publish fairy tails.Comlete bcksIsn't Hulk's get out clause on his contract 80 million or sumats like that? BAZINGAHulk has a 81m buy out clause, hoilett is free agent and chamack is stWhy would anyone go to Villa?

spurs are looking at wolves star players (their only good players the rest are st) Matt Jarvis and Steven Fletcher in a deal worth 18m but wolves want 20m(8)(27)Steven Fletcher is not worth £5m let alone the sort of money some are putting forward - so £10m for the pair is v v generous - I just don't believe that Daniel Levy would even consider offering £18m - £8m is more his style. Anyway - neither are better than squad players for spurs - both have now found their level in the ChampionshipLol when did wolves get star players? i must have been out that dayWhat star players ? they are all st !Spurs will spend silly money because rednapp will send them bankrupt like every other club hes been at , and sooner the better i sayJust like the current spurs stars eh,st.Ark at the spurs fan giving it the big one lol you was bottom of the prem before redknapp came remember thatTo true and they are still crap.had a lucky season,and arry was going to jump ship till the taxman scuperd that one,lol.Star players,aint laughed so much in agesHang on how many spurs wingers have had england call ups in their first season? and levy will be laughing all the way to the bank when youre rabble are fighting for mid table. so keep on laughing divvsI haven't laughed so much since Chelsea won the CL - hope you enjoy football on a Thursday night.Lol look at spurs giving it the biggun i reckon harrys got bored fletch better than defoe pavelchenko 11 goals in a rubbish team n jarvis got 8 so where u get ur values fromStory taken from the most un-reliable newspaperTo all you muppets! They are star players to Wolves...If you had any idea about players outside your own supported clubs you will know they have excelled in a very poor Wolves team this year....and the idea of the high price is to put people off as we WANT to keep them. Get a clue! We dont need to sell....we are not in debt and can spend

preston site(16)(6)What a signing preston really do mean business.Are you Stevenage in Disguise.....After watching the horrible play off with Sheffield United a week or so ago I wouldnt get too excited.....mediocre League 1 players at very best mate.Class player, quality signingYour only jealous mate .Well that's obviously wrong. We've signed about 4 defenders already so he will be unnecessary. also the Lancashire Evening Post has never said that, never mentioned his name and rarely disclose any information that is not fact.He's a league 1 player who cost Stevenage £0 he's now cost PNE £0....anybody get the faint hint he's worth £0^^ how many left backs score 9 goals in a season???


27 May 2012 15:13:19

Rumours round Park Hall is that Greg Draper is leaving The New Saints to join English league one side Walsall for a figure believed to be between £25,000 and £30,000, Draper scored 22 goals and 8 assists last season in 32 games for the Welsh champions(8)(1)Rubbish. Walsall do not spend money.Other than the £4,000 for James Consyable and the £150,000 for Jorge Leito, plus the money (albeit dependant on survival) for O'Conner and Marcelo from Blues??

His contract at Wolves runs to 2014.I thought Kightly had a 1 year contract ending 2012 because of his injury problems.Michael Kightley's contract runs through to 2013. He is expected to be offered and acccept a new contract.What a nob, clayton was listed , he's not a free and no mark town can't afford himSo would kightly hes in contract till next june2013 but im sure he will get a new contract

Man city to offer Johnson and 7mill for sessegnon valued at 17mill. Oneill is a fan of Johnson who would be a big asset to Sunderland and with 7mill as well to strengthen his squad it seems like this deal will happen.(16)(18)As a Sunderland fan i would snap Man Citys's hands off for this dealSounds like this could happen, either way johnson will be a sunderland player in this deal or a season loan with an option to buyWhere the hell will he play at Man City - They already have about 50 decent attacking players - are they just gonna sign everyone so no one else can have them?

Kaka could leave Madrid in search of first team football. Mourinho appears to have lost faith in Kaka with Ozil their main playmaker now. He cost £56,000,000 so he will not go cheaply.

Bendner close to norwich move , Abdellaoue to fulham alobg with danny simpson ,sydney sam marcell jansen and niko kranjar . Rhodes to celtic , clyne to newcastle , berbatov to psg , hazard n hulk to chelsea rolando bianchi to reading. Dempsey to psg wiv chantome n cash going to fulham , dembele will join napoli with inler going 2 ffc as part of deal.(3)(22)Sunderland will get Bendtner, Norwich can't afford his wages.Why on earth would Dempsey go to France?Norwich will probably not go for Bendner, His wages are most likely in the 25-35k ranges and Norwich are looking to put most of their money into transfer fees, not wages. More likely of Bendner to go to a club with a bit more money than Norwich or Sunderland. Norwich to go for players like Pacheco and Lansbury instead.What a load of crap!Also, why would simpson go to fulham. he's had a good season at newcastle and they are much better that fulhamPacheco and Lansbury both impressive at Drury's testimonial and both would do well playing just behind the forwards. Pacheco seems the more likely; was very keen to stay after loan spell. Lansbury may not want to leave London.What are you on!!Celtic Can not afford Jordan Rhodes. Huddersfield said they want £8m for him. celtic can not afford this

very reliable (D.L)
He said that Gary Johnson has told him
"8 players have already signed but not
being mentioned untill 1st july when there contracts are up, incase bigger deals come for
Wingers x2
Striker x2(2)(4)So they're not signed then !This corroborates what Johnson has said on the radio Somerset.Strikers seem to be mcloed and freddy eastwoodIf they have signed it doesn't matter even if Barcelona come in for them as they are SIGNED to a contract. Unless of course they are not signed.

Whats all the fuss over Holden why would Norwich takje a gamble on a player who has been long term injured look how it worked out with Vaughan(5)(4)Bolton need to hold-on the holden. good joke thereWell we took the risk with Howson & Pilkington buying both while recovering from long term injury and both were a huge success.
Howson will I believe become the next Scott Parker and may well get a full international call up in the next couple of seasons if he maintains the form he has shown for the 12 or so games he played for Norwich since March.

Crawley Town have earmarked Yoann Arquin and leon Clarke as their top targets(1)(10)Leon Clarke had more sick days than someone on disability benefit when he was on loan at Crawley. No chance.

Watford Ins:
-Omarr Lawson (Young prospect)
-Ismail Kamara
-James Collins
-James Meredith
-Tommy Smith

Watford Outs:
- Mariappa

Lawson and Kamara both play for Dulwich Hamlet both causing trouble for defences the whole season, can they make the cut in the the Championship who knows ?? but if they don't cost us much money its worth the gamble(6)(5)Collins hasn't decided where he's going yet.Hopefully Sean Murray will have a little chat with Collins while they're with the Irish u21 squad.

Dicannio not returning to Swindon Town.
Will join Wigan next week(11)(15)No dangerYou're avin a giraffeWigan are a bit risky with some decision but not stupid. i think he should stay and get swindon relegated so he can be in the papers like he wantsMartinez will still be at Wigan!! He wants full football control and will not work under either a Director of Football or a Sporting Director...Liverpools owners WILL have someone in one of these positions so Martinez will announce tomorrow that he is staying at Wigan.Di cannio going to wigan joke how makes these lies up he lives next door to me and i know hes staying


27 May 2012 12:47:50
Southampton FC looking to sign Jose Callejon on a 3 month loan deal, also they are wiling to trade Steve De Ridder plus £1.5million for Jarvis.(7)(18)De ridder and 1.5 for jarvis lol

wolves have turned down a 7m bid for him so keep dreamingWolves have to be realistic in knowing that if Jarvis wants to leave, they will probably end up losing him, and it will likely be for a lot less than the £10m some fans are after. Having said this, £1.5m + De Ridder is ridiculous. Part exchange deals are extremely difficult to arrange nowadays, and even if they weren't, De Ridder isn't even a top Championship player...

I think Jarvis will fetch at least £4m, but more realistically £6m or £7m. Slight advantage for Southampton in the race is that he grew up fairly close by, so probably has friends and family in the area. But how often do we see footballers moving for those reasons anymore...?Joel Ward has moved to Crystal Palace, with one of the main reasons being it's close to where he lives. Knowing/living in an area plays a big part in decision making.


27 May 2012 12:45:36
Preston will this week announce the signings of jeffrey monakana joel byrom reuben reid filipe morais john mousinho scott laird and a striker who will cost a big fee.(4)(7)Laird is signedMorias as signed so has byrom,any chance pne for the titleWould love us to sign a striker for big money but just cant see it happeningReuben reid is an awful striker that's why Dickov has said BYE to him. Signing all these players means one thing becoming bankrupt and making your debt even greater.Morais will go down south if he moves due to his son being down there.All free transfers mate and we released 14 players so they obviously need replacing dont theyFREE is fine its the wages and Ridsdale is doing what he does best, raking up debt then he will jump ship. PNE already have debt so they will end up even further in debt.Oldham fan, reuben reid, if he has been released by oldham why are preston signing him? same with morais, nothing goodNotrth end have cleared out, signed ppl on frees who are on lesser wages, dnt see how that will put us in debt cockerThink you'll find we are only paying wages up to what we can afford... financial fair play in effect this season

even though huddersfield are up grayson wants to bring his own players in. roberts, cadamarteri, kay, mccombe, nathan clark, gary naysmith, oscar gobern, tommy miller, alan lee, anton robinson, nick colgan and scott arfield will defently leave this summer, obv rhodes might leave but after yesterdays win theres hope. comeing in could be ross mcCormack, sean morrison (permanent), and a shock signing of yakubu (much better board room at huddersfield) and obv many more. defently going to be an interesting summer at huddersfield(5)(11)Rotherham would love to tek alan lee back ledgendPlease take him on a free he's the biggest fairy ever to wear a Town shirt!Alan Lee is shocking.Dont be ridiculous, if all those players leave we wont have enough to even enter the league! the only players likely to leave are Gobern, McCombe and Nathan ClarkGobern wont leave, hes only 19, got very good potential! defo gunna go- roberts, kay, mccombe, nathan and tom clarke, naysmith, miller, lee and colgan. robinson possibly and possibly rhodes if anyone comes in at the right price.
I doubt we'll get Yakubu, but it'd be class, strong rumours with Clayton and Beckford... Heskey and Owen are on a free this summer also...

Hinernian have indicated to Blackburn they want 500k + Nick Blackman for duo Eoin Doyle and Danny Galbraith.

Jeroen Tesselar is also in talks with blackburn after an impressive season for st mirren with martin olsson likely to leave.(3)(7)Why would Blackburn want Doyle? They would be better off keeping BlackmanGalbraith and doyle cant get a game in the spl, doubt they a championship side would want them


27 May 2012 12:17:09
Tony Cottee has urged West Ham to break the bank and get Michael Owen(19)(8)Get your PIGGY BANKS OUT BOYS!Owen is a free transfer, so how does breaking the bank come into it {Ed013's Note - Wages}Wages...Wages?? Guaranteed he wont get near £50k a week from any side in Europe and if he goes to Asia/USA his money will be based on notoriety and not his current ability.


27 May 2012 12:12:16
huddersfield to get rid of players this summer and gary roberts will be the first to leave, (bet he wished he signed that contract now!)
also leaving will be:
antony kay
alan lee
tommy miller
gary naysmith
nick colgan
jamie mcoombe
tom clarke
oscar gobern (if they can sell him)
liam ridehalgh
james spencer

Graysons first task will be to tie down morrinson on a permanant transfer from reading, then watch deano get that cheque book out!
UTT! EE-AYE EE-AYE EE-AYE OH, UP THE FOOTBALL LEAGUE WE GO!!(7)(8)Roberts is stayingIf i was a town fan i'd be more concerned about loosing rhodes rather than which players will be signedYesterdays Wembely play off must rank as one of the worst games of Hoofball I have ever watched.....apart from Peter Clarke, there wasnt one ounce of ability in that team......Rhodes did himself no favours either during that match. Cant see Huddersfield staying in the Championship if thats the best you play....PoorHuddersfield straight back downWho said that was the best we play?
funny how we going straight back down wen we have rhodes staying and more money than most teams in championshipYeah it was hoof ball wasn't it... did you not see the passing moves both teams did? only started going more direct when the sun went into the defenders eyes and the players became tired...another utterly blinkered post from a bored 'fan'Reading have made a enquiry about matt philliphs and tom inceAgain 'fans' that failed to acknowledge the fact that it was over 100 degrees at times on the pitch meaning that passing game wasnt always ideal, at times it was hoofball but that was due to the sun being in the defenders' eyes, but quite a large period of the match came from players going down the wings and breaking on the counter. i sincerely feel that all 3 promoted league 1 teams have enough ability to hold their own in the championship and that next season will be a very tight affair for both promotion and relegation

Accrington chairman John Khan will make one last attempt to buy Blackburn from the venkys(7)(4)John Khan? think you may mean illyas Khan, plus he's not buying the club, seneca would be buying the club so the new owners would be Ian Battersby and Ian Currie, big Blackburn fans, illyas Khan would be installed as the chairman. which personally i would welcome.

27 May 2012 12:10:33
After a poor first seson Per Mertesackermay be on his way out of arsenl with Wolfsburg preparing a £6m bid(12)(7)Hope this one's true. How this bloke got 70+ caps for Germany is one for Mulder & Scully. Woefully short of pace for the Prem and looks a bag of nerves generally. Getting £6 million would be a result given his form this season, but will it be spent on strengthening the squad? No, it'll disappear into the black hole marked "fiscal prudence". The inadequacies of the squad have once again been masked by qualifying for the CL, so a complacent board and manager will continue to assume we can genuinely compete domestically and in Europe. What a joke. The managed decline continues....

Yeovil town could add jordan robertson and ben may to their striking options. While topscorer andy willams set subject to a 5000k bid from Huddersfield(2)(8)Andy Williams will leave on a free! When his contract expires on the 30th of juneAndy Williams will leave on a free because he has rejected a new deal at Huish Park.Andy williams has left so no money
DevonGreenExcept that Andy Williams has already decided to leave on a free....if you're going to make up a rumour, at least research it a little first!Why would you say that huddersfild will offer that much for andy williams ? would love to know which false sorse you have.. hes left yeovil on a free as contract is up..Williams is leaving on a free, his contract has expiredNot good enough for championshipWilliams is going to RotherhamNo he means huddersfield are gonna offer him a wage of 5000"Subject to a 500k bid" reads vastly different to a wage offer of 5000Williams was only good when everyone passed him the ball loads and set him up for either easy goals or incredibly lucky. hes so overated.

Blue nose Tom(10)(17)No way that'd buy Birminghams entire teamDream on! Watford were offered him for less than 300k when he was on loan recently.Saints won't spend more than 6 million this seasonSaints will spend what they need to spend this season, and believe me it will be more than £6m.No they havent you silly boy@Saints won't spend more than 6 million this season
What about the 7million for Jay Rodriguez, and that's one player? unless we buy torres for -1million you're wrong

Swindon town goalkeeper Lanzano has contract extended by 1 year. Due to expire 2014 now. Original contract agreed an extension if Swindon were promoted(5)(8)He's already been released muppetThe Swindon lanzano rumour of contract extension is factually correct. The person who said he was released obviously doesn't know anything. They were trying to sell him / pay him up but no joy. Stfc offered this deal so have to stand by it. Its not the lads fault.


27 May 2012 11:06:11
In the next 48 hours, we will have signed a new player. I have very good contact with someone at the club. Which player do you think it will be. I have a feeling it could be Adam Clayton. Lets hope so, UTC(8)(4)Clayton just gone on holiday so it won't be him


27 May 2012 10:47:06
Norway's MOTM yesterday, Tarik Elyounussi caught the eye of several English clubs including Swansea, Norwich, Reading, Everton and Stoke.(5)(9)As with the Jonathan De Guzman to Stoke rumour; seems like a very un-Pulis type player; Young (sub 28 in Pulis' head), foreign, never played in the prem, attacking style and under 6ft. But again, I would love to be wrong.Blackpools a poor mans Norwich? Haha you know nothing! Norwich is a bigger club than half the premireship !The only thing big in Norwich...make that huge is Grant Holt.When I think Norwich, I think Alan Partridge. Not how big your football club is, get a grip!

peterborough united goal keepers joe lewis+ paul jones have departed the club , joe lewis has signed a 3and a half year contract at cardiff while paul jones signs a 2 year deal with league one new comers crawley town , however the posh are buying a goalkeeper from gillingham and ben amos of man utd and cardiff keeper tom heaton , there have also been strong rumours that george boyd+ paul taylor me be used as bait to lure cardiff's kenny miller , the posh are going to put in a bid for spurs youngster 'harry kane' the bid is believed to be around 600k and we are close to signing ricardo fuller , emile heskey and nathan delfouneso and chris iwelumo(8)(18)I doubt your buying both Amos and Heaton both are good enough to be number 1.

Delfouneso would have to be a loan.

And why would anyone want Heskey?Someone living in dream land600k for kane! dream onHarry Kane for 600k? Your off your face sonTwo reasons we won't be signing Heskey and Fuller: both are way too old for Fergie and also we couldn't afford their wagesOh dear....this is either a wum or my fellow POSH fan has forgotten to take his tablets this morning. Maybe we are also signing Owen and Berbatov? :)Heskey might join but i don't think fuller will , but if we got delfouneso on load that be great , we signed nat knight-percival from rangesA load of bull mateGeorge Boyd and Paul Taylor for Kenny Miller?
You're having a laugh right?I mean WrexhamI think I would take George Boyd and Paul Taylor for kenny miller hes the torres of the championship


27 May 2012 09:52:58

Gary Roberts, Anthony Kay and Danny Cadematri have all been told they aren't in Simon Graysons Championship plans. Kay has already agreed to rejoin Tranmere where as Roberts is attracting attention from Notts County and Preston. Cadematri is expected to leave on a free.

Jon Stead is to rejoin Huddersfield as he's a fans favourite and is seen as a replacement to the imminently departing Rhodes.(4)(11)If kay is about to sign for tranmere you can bet your life preston will want to sign him anybody we want to sign so do theyI feel that you have just done Steve a MASSIVE injustice, He was at Tow Law Football Club on Saturday, This is true as he has been appointed the new Club President and had the clubs social bar named after him !! the game that was played was also the Presidents Trophy not a cup final as you suggested. !! are you sure the rest of the facts you posted are true !!!Roberts has been in talks with Oldham but I'd be surprised if they can meet his demands.


27 May 2012 09:13:22
Manchester united are making Gareth Bale there main target this summer as Bale has addmitted he wants champions league football and fergie knows harry wants atleast £50 for the welsh wizard.(12)(20)Just £50 for Gareth Bale? Think I might put a bid in for that!Where are united getting 50 mil just to sign one player?Tbf he is worth a bit more than £50.He's worth more than £50mil but you never go in with say a £65mil bid straight off, thats called showing your cards! Bale is good but not worth more than £70mil. Besides it could all be a smoke screen and modric could be the real man fergie is after??Man Utd don't have £50 million to spend on one player. The midfield in particular needs a serious overhaul as they have been relying on Dad's Army hence no silverware this season. Despite their global profile, they are still stuck in the Glazer debt mire and they can't hope to compete with the petro/gas dollars of Man City and Chelsea.

Norwich will sign Matty Phillips for £4m(26)(24)No you wont.Grant Holt wants out of Norwich because he' on the highest wage at £15k a week. Matty Phillips is on £10k a week at he wouldnt be going to Norwich for the money.....Wouldnt be going there for the manager as he's got Holloway to improve his game & wouldnt be going there for the chance of winning not really much of a draw for Phillips. Think he will wait untill he has to move from Blackpool.....but thanks for the offer of £4mSource for the holt rumour? that has been dismissed for a while, and a more accepted theory is that he wanted new contract negotiations because he ISN'T the top earner anymore, both bennet and Howson are reportedly earning more. Also, odds are he would rather have Premier league footy than Championship. Love it when fans talk like they're the players agent.Blackpool are a poor mans norwichBlackpool are a tin pot club like IpswichToo old Lambert usually goes for players 20-30 years old

Riccardo Fuller attracting attention from the likes of Celtic, Norwich, Bristol City, Peterborough, Hearts and Sheffield Wednesday(22)(10)Like to see him go to posh but theres not a chance because of his wages!I'm not gonna slate any of the clubs but I'd say Norwich and Celtic is unlikely due to the fact they have good strikers in a similar mould e.g. Holt and Samaras, Peterborough are just a bit too small and Hearts (correct me if im wrong) wouldn't be able to fund his wages I know Bristol City are in for a big man up top so maybe and Sheff Wed are going to want these kind of players for the coming season so no reason why not so in my opinion between Bristol City and Sheffield WednesdayHe is not good enough for Celtic or Norwich. Can see him back at one of the top clubs in the Championship like a Bolton or BirminghamHe's not wanting big money he's just wanting guaranteed first team action, can see Ipswich or Bristol city the favoritesHe will come to his MASSIVE old clubCan't see Ipswich being able to afford him, think a team like blackpool or Bolton.Holt has been at wednesday. we all remember then?!?


27 May 2012 01:20:26
Westley wants to bring Luke Foster to Preston. Westley was apparently gutted when he left Stevenage after only a year and has kept in contact with him since.(3)(8)Can believe that.Looked him up on Wiki, and don't think we should sign him.Is Jason Koumas coming to PNE.Cant see this happening. Foster had a MASSIVE bust up with Westley about his commitment to the club. Westley seems to be doing the same thing at Preston as well.Get your facts right ...Zoko is out of contract and available on a free if he doesn't take up Carlisle's offer of a new contract.Who mentioned Zoko?

huddersfield fans were epic today,sheff u had a lot of very agressive supporters especially at stanmore tube station.massive credit to sheff u players for applauding the town fans at the end,we gave them a standing sure they will be champions next season.(15)(6)No chance there is only one team goin to win lge one next season and its not the bladesSadly we are on a downward spiral. Team about to disintegrate. K-Mac, Williamson, Quinny going, Ched in prison and with strikers like Porter cant see us getting promotion anytime soon.Congratulations to Huddersfield Town.

schalke have been in talks. javier has
been not been in the starting 11 since
april and has notbeen fully match fit.

talksport have revealed that the
coach huub stevens will offer £5.2
million to barca.(7)(23)Why would anyone offer £5.2m to a club when his contract is up??He was in the starting eleven on Friday and his contract is not ending this summer.Where have u been for the last few months mascherano has played nearly every game for barca

I heard that barnsley are on the brink of bringing lee williamson from sheff utd as he is now out of contract and wants to stay in south yorkshire. Better luck next sheff utd. Lets see what your like without ched evans ha ha.(13)(5)SUFC = no-man teamHope we dont !!Why would he want to play for a team that may well be relegated. Don't forget you are only in the Championship because Portsmouth went into administration.

Huddersfield Town will try to resign Sean Morrison from Reading after impressing on loan for the terriers.(20)(4)I'd imagine McDermott will want to keep hold of him, but can see him going back on loan for the seasonN'doye definat coming to reading signed a contractI understand that a deal was done whereby, if Reading give Huddersfield first shout on Morrison, then Reading have first dibs on Rhodes. No good Morrison coming back to Reading. Not premiership standardMorro isnt prem quality wouldnt even warm the bench. Could see him return to Town for another loan as we dont know how we will fair in the prem next season.Yes but the season after he will be ok in the championship

Depsey has expressed intrest for Champions League football. Marin has left Bremen for Chelsea.(16)(4)

Maynor Figuroa is being chased by multiple clubs, Villa are my bet. Ballotelli could leave with Higuain being looked at. Fuller could go to a number of clubs with West Ham mentioned. Pablo Osvaldo could leave Roma after one season after punching a team-mate in the dressing room, with AC Milan possible suitors if they are going to sell Pato.(1)(11)Stop telling stories, Ballotelli is staying at city, end of story!

Heard Kevin Doyle could re-join Reading. Jarvis could also join the Royals.(8)(28)Doyle said he wont go back and Jarvis is up for 10m so good luckHed's agreed a deal with readingWont happenYou heard wrongI rated Doyle when he was with us before but I feel his playing style has been tainted at his stint at Wolves and I don't think he can cut it in the Premiership as a result. He is a hero but I do not want him back.Stop it with the Kevin Doyle rumours. He isn't coming back. McDermott and Doyle have both publicly ruled it outHaven't heard doyles interview then...and i only happened to be talking with him last week at the training ground and pretty much said hes here next year...jarvis tho lol we might of been relegated but to reading yeah as if ...10 mill on his head boys!Hope Doyle dosn't come back. Best to remember him as was. Top Reading legendReading are too good for doyle now
