Arsenal News

It would appeat that Hangeland could be close to a move to the Gunners. After intially going in at £7million at the beginning of the summer, Arsenal are now prepared to offer Fulham £6 million plus Senderos (whether that be the £5million Arsenal expect to recieve from his sale, or the player directly). Roy Hodgson will now NOT stand in Hangeland's way if that big club comes in for him, and with Arsenal getting £15mil for Toure, Fulham accept that £11 million (or equivalent) is a fair price for the big defender.

Also the Huntelaar deal could be on again as Real are determind to sell and Arsenal are one of the only potential buyers Klass is interested in. Wenger will be stubborn and pay no more that £10 million up front and £14million overall. ALTHOUGH MADRID MAY THROW A SPANNER IN THE WORKS BY OFFERING HUNTELAAR AND £5 MILLION FOR GAEL CLICHY.

  At a secret meeting tonight at fifa paris
where my uncle a top fifa referee was invited
it was discussed once again the forming of a super league
liverpool man u arsenal chelsea were invited
no other english team were needed or wanted
because of a fair parity among the euro clubs
sorry man city you have wasted your money
come 2012 you will be left in england along with all the other also rans
making it a lot harder to buy top stars who will only join the elite clubs
  Now that manchester city have bought kolo toure yaya will jion he has just extended his contract but that's only because barca want more money for him expect him to be bought for around 22–24m. also joleon lescott will hand in a transfer request and jion for 20m. expect city to add 1 more creative midfielder to the squad.

liverpool will sign negrado 15m
arsenal will sign huntelaar 16.5m
chelsea will sign van der vaart 14m
(if alonso leaves liverpool expect sniejder to be going the other way)

  I am devestated about the news about joleon lescott i heard from a source that david moyes is holding out of a 26 million bid from city + onouah hopefully joleon picks the right team (everton) also everton 2 tie up deal for hutton

  Will some one tell me who david ball is at manchester city ?
because the only ball there is michael ball
  Rangers have little money to spend so Walter will do so wisely and in a focused manner . . now that Ferguson is gone, expect to see a bid soon for James McArthur from Hamilton Accies . . a fine young prospect and a Rangers fan too
  The £3.5m for arbeloa will be used to sign a left footed defender i.e distan. Rafa still has money left from his original kitty which he will use to fund a bid for lee catermole from wigan, although martiez has stated he is not for sale, nor was c.ronaldo/ibrahimovic/kaka. so don't believe what most managers say these days. expect a £12m bid accepted within the next few days with the trasfer set to be completed as soon as xabi leaves.
  What muppet wrote
"I also understand that once Everton find a replacement for Lescott the deal will be concluded to take him to City (unless Everton try to up the price AGAIN for the defender then City will walk away)"?
There's been no upping of the price. Everton have set the price at 30 mill and City haven't matched it yet.
Pienaar to Liverpool, HAHAHAHAHA did you think it's April 1 today mate?
Everton will sign Joe Cole from Chelsea and bring in Moutinho on loan.
  Arsenal news.

there are reports that saying patric viera is possible coming back to arsenal as arsene need him very much

watch this!!!
  Rafa has blown Sunderland out of the water as he has prepared a 15m bid for Lee Cattermole. He feels he couyld be the new Xabi Alonso and could press for a World Cup Place next year. Rafa's other signing will be David Silva with a 25m move. Xabi Alonso will leave for 30m to Real Madrid with Arbeloa as well for 4m. Andrea Dossena will also leave for Napoli for 5m. Hull's Michael Turner will make the switch to Merseyside for 7m
  THFC: Thicko Headbanger Footy Chat

To the guy that asked the Goatman for news about Villa, and had a pop at Thicko Spurs and United posters. .At least we've got the nous to say what we think, and why we we think it. Often we're optimistic or just wrong, but have the bottle and a bit of style in posting stuff here. So take your chill pill, settle back in front of your computer, think of something intelligent to write and sodding well say it instead of asking us to fill your empty head.

For weeks I've been predicting Keane will go to Villa and that Dos Santos is good cover if he does. It looks like Del Boy Arry was trying to get a replacement(Vierra) for Jenas to leave as well as part of a deal to get Young. BTW I've asked here why Downing? Why did MON talk up Young's value (£32 million). .Er, could it be he's fishing?

Look mate, it's a fg certainty that Villa's signings are reliant on other clubs sorting out who's available depending on who's in, and then who's out elesewhere. If Villa wanted a player why not just go and get him without delay. Surely MON knows who he wants, so why the lack of action?

I know, he's waiting for the Goatman to tell him what to do!

In Harry we hope.

  King Kolo Toure and Adebayor have left Arsenal 4 a combined fee of around 40 million with Eboue expected 2 move 2 Fiorentina 4 a fee of around 10 million making Arsenal 40 million richer as only 10 million has been spent on Vermalen.

Arsene Wenger is a huge admirer of Brede Hangeland and is willing 2 offer up 10 million + Senderos as his opening bid. Roy Hodgson has spoken about holding onto the Norweigian captain but with the man himself stalling over a new contract extension he mayb forced 2 play his hand.

With Eboue's departure, Wenger is likely 2 bring in St.Etiene's Mohamdou Dabo who he has been tracking 4 over 2 years along with teamate Blaise Matudi. St.Etiene would probably take 8 million 4 each player but will try 2 play hardball over their star pair.

If Matudi dosen't happen Wenger is still following Gohkan Inler who would b avalible 4 around 18 million and is considering M.Diarra who would b worth around 15 million. There is also the option of Patrick Viera making a shock return 2 Arsenal 2 guide Denilson,Song and Diaby on a 1–year deal.

Wenger may consider moving another CB even if he lands Hangeland with Sakho (8–10million) firmly in the picture 4 this summer or the next. He continues 2 follow Neven Subotic (12 million) and Tasci (15 million). Marcel Schafer is a possible replacement fullback.

Ther is unlikely 2 b a new striker signed, with RVP,Eduardo,Bentdner,Walcott,Arshavin and Vela (at the Gold Cup) showing good form in pre–season.

In other news, Galatasaray have signed Elano while Barcelona's loaning of Kerrison 2 Benfica has give them 1st option on South American pair Angel Di Maria and David Luiz. Hleb will most probably not join Inter.
  Viera back to arsenal for 13million, Wenger has been tracking him since he become inter's bench warmer!. .the fee could drop to 7.5million.
  Can someone gives me the possibility of new cdm comes to Arsenal? [after losing Melo (Juve), Cana (Sunderland) & Yaya Toure (contract extension)]
  Arsenal News:

I for one didn't see it coming but as a gooner fan am delighted that Arsenal are going to offer a one year deal plus insentives to Pat Vieira, this is in fact why a deal has gone quiet with spurs and although he's 33, him n cesc will compliment one anothers play. Wenger is no longer looking at Chamakh or Huntelaar, he is after Fenerbache's wantaway spanish international Daniel Guiza, after declaring he desperately wants to leave the turkish side are after a knock down price in the region of 6–9mil. He was scouted whilst plying his trade in spain and at the Euro championships so expect a deal here. He was set to move to Lyon after a fee was agreed but Arsenals interest has led Lyon to look elsewhere and they have signed Gomis from St Ettienne to partner fellow new boy Lisandro Lopez. In defence expect a move for Zapata of Udinese as Fulham are asking for a huge fee of Hangeland which is too much in Wengers eyes. This will conclude dealings unless others should leave, but this is all i can give you for now and i wouldn't like to make my own guesses.
  I believe that there was a post on this site before, concerning a possible takeover of Reading Football Club.

Now, I work for the club and would normally laugh off such speculation from an unknown poster. .

however. .

what he/she said has a strong element of truth. Mr. Madjeski is not in the best state of health, and he has wanted to sell the club for over two years now.

I have overheard speculation that we may be being taken over in the near future, and that the asking price of the club is £30m+, but so far it is just talk. There being a rumour gathering pace that we will be sold by March 2010 but, again, without solid evidence it is just talk and supposition.
  To the person who said:

"Heard that Mauricio Baldivieso of Aurora in Bolivia is having a medical at the Emirates today. Will be signed but sent back on loan for a season"

This rumour has no truth at all. You read about this 12 year old on BBC Blogs and made up your own. He came on as a sub for them at just 12 in a competetive game, the Directors didn't agree with playing a kid so players dad(also manager) left Aurora by mutual consent and the club then released Mauricio!!
  ~~~~~~~~~Man Utd Breaking News~~~~~~~~

United are in talks with Udinese with a view to sign Alexis Sanchez for 18 mil.

remember who told this first––––
'Dogman Doggy'

The takeover of Sheffield United has hit a slight stubbling block over the future of Kevin Blackwell. Kevin McCabe wants assurances that Blackwell will be kept on until the end of the coming season, whereas the consortium buying the club want to replace him with one of:
Alan Curbishley
Kevin Keegan
Alan Shearer
Gordon Strachan OR for a shock return,
Neil Warnock
