There is interest in many of Celtic's players from better leagues than the SPL. Beram Kayal, Scott Brown, Victor Wanyama, Gary Hooper, Joe Ledley, Ki Sung Young, Adam Matthews, James Forrest, and Emilio Izaguirre are all interesting clubs.(23)(4)Doubt it, can't see any of them being good enough for League One.Haha good jokeLeague one thing was a good joke i mean. these players will be in premiership soon it seems, or staying with CelticYes I saw Matthews is being considered by Fulham, Redknapp said he admires Forrest and will watch his progress, Villa have an interest in Ki and are monitoring Wanyamas progress, Southampton Hooper, Everton Ledley, and Man Utd are still following Kayal and the return of Izaguirre from injuryShut up about league 1
Hooper could play in the premier league
Wanyama and Brown(I think is terrible) was wanted by my side Newcastle
Ledley was wanted by Stoke
Ki, Kayal was wanted by Aston Villa, Kayal, Matthews and Izaguirre by Man Utd
Forest Tottenham

I am a Rangers fan as well as Newcastle fan I think all of them are good and could play in the premier league apart from Brown.You are a proper English aeholeThese players play in the equivalent of a pub league. There's a reason why these players have been 'linked' to moves but haven't gone anywhere. Clubs have had a good look and decided there are better options who play for the Dog and Duck! SPL, what a pointless league.Wouldn't be surprised if good offers come in for them all. Heard that Samaras is wanted by west brom too. celtic are doing really well financially and so do not have to sell unless they get really good offersIve got a question for all you up your own arse english wks that keep saying our teams (celtic and rangers) are st and wouldn't get a sniff at the prem league, if we're that bad then why are all you teams brickin it to let us into your leagues? both celtic and rangers would walk league 1 2 and 3 finishing 1st and 2nd, the championship would prove a tougher task but we would still win promotion and once we're in "the best league in the world" we would certainly be giving newcastle a run for their money!And why do Celtic and Rangers want to join the English leagues? Oh yeah because the SPL is a joke! And we're certainly not bricking it, you're Scottish you fool stay in your own country. If you do come down though you wouldn't even get out of League One! Charlton, Sheff Utd & Wed and Huddersfield are all better than you! Stick to your exciting league which is now a one horse race every year.Giving a 'stay in your own country' comment is silly considering you're in a domestic league which has a Welsh team in the top tier of their league system. If Celtic and Rangers had the same financial backing as the average league 1 team, Celtic would be able to walk it with their current crop of players.Your not really a fan at all if you support Rangers and Newcastle are you?I support Barcelona, Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal, AC Milan and Celtic. This way I'm happy most weekends!

30 Mar 2012 14:11:07
Kettering Town will be wound up before the start of the 2012-13 season.

The Conference will reprieve the fourth lowest side, if it's not Kettering Town.(2)(8)The tax bill has been paid and the club will continue to run


30 Mar 2012 14:08:33
St. Johnstone will be renamed Perth St. Johnstone on Monday, in a bid to attract more people in the town to watch them.

Many people do not know where the team plays, so the addition of Perth to the club's name will help.

They will be listen on the videprinters as St. Johnstone until the end of this season and will be shown under their new name next season.(5)(16)Dont talk utter pi perth aint that big a town that the locals dont know where they come from or where they playWow,i never knew that, St Johnstone are based in Australia.......really?

Mr.Roller CoasterMakes a change from them being called St.Johnstone Nil.

Leicester will sign Emile Heskey on a free at the end of the season...(14)(23)What as, a scarecrow?Hope not he's more useless than Steve Howard !Hoo bloody rayWhat again. I thought he signed for you lot at the start of this season and also in the January transfer window.
Why would you need to sign him again?


30 Mar 2012 11:37:47
Ajax Amsterdam fringe player Thulani Serero will move to Swansea at the end of the season. The Swans have been keeping tabs on him since 2011 but couldnt make a move because the Amsterdam club has first option on all Ajax Cape Town players(ajax amsterdams feeder club). He has nothad much game time in Holland and his footballing style fits perfectly with the Swansea style of play.(13)(3)


30 Mar 2012 10:39:28
paul cairney of partick thistle has signed a pre contract with hibs(1)(9)If he has he must be bloody bonkers


30 Mar 2012 10:34:37
Ipswich Town are set for 5 or 6 big signings this summer! Their main aim is to get a Gk, a right back, two centre backs a midfielder and a striker! Signings that could be made for a gk include; brad Guzan from Aston villa, Scott loach (Watford) or alex smithies (Huddersfield). The likely rightback will be Matt Lowton (Sheffield united) and two centre backs Harry maguire (Sheffield united) and Jason Pearce (Portsmouth). Paul Coutts (Preston) ched Evans (Sheffield united) and Jordan Rhodes (Huddersfield) are also likely to join.(5)(37)There is no chance of Rhodes joining the carrot crunchers.. hes premiership boundI believe by the term carrot crunchers you are reffering to our six fingered cousins in Norfolk. But agree we will not sign next to none of those players. Thanks agian Keane for knowing best that Rhodes was never going to be any good and selling him you sure proved us town fans wrong.The only ones i can see coming to Ipswich are Alex Smithies, and Matt Lowton, Jordon Rhodes loved his time at Ipswich who developed his skills and brought him on, but thanks to that tosser Keane he was sold for a mere 400'000Another dreamer..The blades are on there way back up, a much bigger club than ipswich, why would they sell 3 of there better young players!!.
Why do people write CRAP..dreamer Ipswich fans mate. From what I hear they are 66 million in debt so won't be doing too much splashing out. Unlike the yellow army who are quite minted at the moment with premiership status ha

In a bid to save face the Crawley board are about to sack Dteve Evans and his henchmen.They are aware for a while that the club image haas been tarnished.Also the FA will fine the club heavily and possible points deductions. As for Steve Evans they may view him as a person not fit to be a Manager, feel his past is about to catch up with him.
As usual it's the fans who suffer(23)(4)Whos Dteve Evans?Utter garbage. Steven Evans is why Crawley are where they are - he's the reason they are about to be promoted to L1. As for a points deduction, why? it all happened after the final whistle and was down to individual players. Get a life, Crawley are going up, live with it.Tehy wont go up and here could well be a points deduction and if i remember before mr moneybags became he new owner crawley we mid table. just saying. The pub team will be them tomorrow anyway
As for evens i wouldnt be suprised if the board see sence and get in a decent managerI hope the rumour is true as Steve Evans is a disgrace to football even Crawley fans now on their own forum have heard his total abuse of opposing players from the sidelines and Evans is a total disgrace to football.
I have been behind the dug out in one game where there full back was getting constantly beaten by a winger and Evans was shouting to his full back to break the other players legs.

Evans needs to be brought before the FA and sorted once and for all and harshly.

I do believe Evans will be sacked whatever at the end of the season and the FA can speak to any fan from 23 other clubs in L2 and they will all say the same as me about his antics on the touchline.Crawley are a very decent side and saw them at the Kassam stadium and by far the best team Ive seen in the league. But....Evans, nop, hated by most though that likely wont matter to him. But he will drag Crawley down if they are not careful and will spoil the good workCrawley is a club that are run awfully and thier fans just have o accept that they will go the same way as rusten did a few years ago. when the time is rignt and they have sold one or two more for alot of money they will take that then go there is already people saying that they are taking money out of the club.
Cant agree about them having the best squad that is swindon


30 Mar 2012 00:39:51
Norwich City plan to make an unspecified bid in the summer for Norwegian international Mohammed Abdellaoue(9)(28)


29 Mar 2012 19:18:08
Jon Stead might make a move to Wigan(4)(46)Why does the pier need cleaningSeems like a lot of players are going to wigan. Whats the attraction? Must be the pierIs it a case of linking a lot of players with wigan in the unrealistic hope you might,just might get one right.


29 Mar 2012 18:01:55
martin cranie to make a move to wigan(4)(29)Alot of moves for wigan aparently, must be getting ready for the championship

With Salomon Kalou's Chelsea contract set to expire in the sumner one of the many clubs reportedly intrested to snap up the Ivorian international are plucky Premier League side Norwich City with another season at the top almost assured they plan to bring big names to secure their place as solid Premier League team(7)(47)


29 Mar 2012 15:07:19
Jordan Rhodes WILL sign with Norwich City in the summer window as the club have offered Huddersfield Town a deal which they have accepted for the player(14)(55)Oh so norwich can afford 10 million plus add ons for rhodes. Take it from me 5 million that clubs think town would take is way off through mark.I'm not saying that he'll go to Norwich, although it's possible, but if you don't go up he certainly will, even if you do he might.Total fantasy.he will go to evertonActually it is more likely Norwich than Everton, Everton cannot afford high transfer fees, where as Norwich would have substantial funds to bring in players next season.
There is no way Rhodes will go for 10M+, for an unproven striker at the higher level 5M+ add ons would be the maximum they could get, and even then it represents risk whoever buys him.Liverpool set to bid 40m + add onsI have watched Rhodes for 3seasons now and he has improved year on year ,he will go all the way , but he needs to be in a team that plays football ,not a team that just launches the ball long . I hope wherever he goes he succeedsIf you think he would go to norwich rather than everton, you should stop smoking that stuff, clearly it has made you delutional.Thanks again Keane.
In all seriousness though can't see this happening everyone wants him or is this just wishful thinking from a town fan.Norwich have money to spend, Everton have no money as your chairmen constantly says, so if its down to who has the cash it will be Norwich, Lambert is ambitious and will go for bigger players next season , he is not interested in survival.
As for the comment about a team who just launches the ball long, if you are referring to Norwich you have clearly not been watching them, they vary their game based on who they are playing, 4,4 2. 3,5,2, 4,5,1 and also 4,4,2 with a diamond formation in midfield. They even switch in mid game if it is not working.
IF we can keep Lambert for the next 2/3 seasons Norwich will likely be challenging for Europa cup minimum. {Ed025's Note - get a grip mate, you are making norwich sound like a big club!...europa cup minimum??? you are, and will be for the forseeable future, a yo-yo club, who,s aim each season is to survive relegation!..sorry if the truth hurts, but thats just how it is..Rhodes defo joining Everton next yearTotally disagree with Ed025's Note, which is arrogant and patronizing in the extreme. Norwich is one of the best supported clubs in the country (no 12 at present in terms of average crowd) and virtually sell out their stadium every home game. They are geographically located in a huge rural area with no real competing clubs (the closest bigger city, Leicester, is almost 100 miles away). The population of Norfolk alone is over 850,000 people; add to that the borders of surrounding counties like Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, etc. and you are talking about a very sizeable demographic to draw from. I accept that they haven't got the historical pedigree of clubs like Liverpool, Man Utd, Arsenal, etc. but there is no reason why they should not in time become a fixture in the Premier. They are already a bigger club than half the teams currently in the division - FACT!


29 Mar 2012 14:39:20
Graham Westley will be sacked as Preston manager if they lose to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.(20)(8)Wondered how long this would take. No he wont.He should have packed his bags on Tuesday night, he is not the man for the job! PNE's managerial record is not good but a change is needed before next season; this guy will drag the club down.Can PNE afford to sack him? They're rumoured to not have much left in the piggy bank.

Westley will stay.During Westleys reign at Deepdale the standard of football has been absolutle rubbish. He has lost the fans and the players once he loses Hemmings and Ridsdale (shortly) he'll be sacked. 2 wins in 14 is sack material at any club especially the way we are playing. We still have to play 4 of the top 6 before the seasons out. Relegation is a very real possibility. Im scared for us!Westley is the same breed as manager as simpson rubbish they should stick to managing litlle clubs who punch above there weight please billy davies come back


29 Mar 2012 14:20:02
who is going to be the next Bournemouth manager, anyone got an ideas? id like someone with experience, alan curbishley lee clark someone who has been there with a bit of knowledge


Curbishley, no chance.


Curbs and Clark wont go to League one. Clarke would possibly return at a push to a League one side but if he did it'll be someone like a relagated Championship team.


Phil brown


Curbishley wont drop to L1 you have to be dreaming and for a start would anyone want to work with Mitchell your dodgy chairman and a russian no ones knows anything about who is probably as dodgy as Mitchell the expert on liquidating his companies.


I've heard that Sean O'Driscoll is favourite.....and is the bookies favourite


Curbishly is becoming a George Graham....linked to every job but never taking one. Soon he'll be so out of touch that clubs won't bother asking.


I've heard a lot about Carl Fletcher joining Bournemouth at the end of the season. Would be great to have Lil Fletch back at the club(2)(7)Graham Westley will be a good choice for you!!!Mourinho was spotted on the prom and capello was seen in the local italian ice cream shop #justsayingBournemouth fans are really in cuckoo land you have no chance of Curbishley you are too small a club for him. He just turned down a premier league team so little old Bournemouth sorry more likely your old manager who is a good manager.

Your all obssesed with the fact you have this russian guy and you can get anyone in to your club but with all due respect you will never be a big club you have a samll fan base, small ground and poor attendances and a dodgy Chairman.

Hi Everyone.
It is now very clear that Arsenal are on the verge of sealing a deal for Lukas Podolsky. From a very reliable source it is understood that Arsenal were warn by colgne against announcing the deal for fear of Colgne fans revolt. it is however understood that Arsenal have agreed to delay the announcement until jst before the end of the season.
In other news Alex song is almost penning a new deal to make him one of the highly paid Arsenal pklayers. it is understood Wenger Instructed Ivans Gazzids to open negotiations with the cameroonean international who is also a target for Barcelona and Juventus. This will bring Hope to Emirate faithfuls jst a week after Van Persie was quoted saying That he "May not be going anyway"
Barcelona are also understood to be keeping tabs on Wilshere jst a few months after the English international declared that he will retire at arsenal.(11)(12)Just like rooney said "once a blue, always a blue"!Barca are also interested in Bedtinner!'Wilshere jst a few months after the English international declared that he will retire at arsenal.' famous last words


29 Mar 2012 12:23:34
FA to set a new precedent by coming down exceptionally hard on the players involved in the Bradford / Crawley fracas. Very lengthy bans and substantial club fines will be announced. This could not have come at a worse time for either club, Bradford could end up slipping out of the league and Crawley's promotion hopes could be shattered. Certain members of the Crawley board are apparently livid with the Management team and the players. They fear their image is constantly taking a beating and despite several warnings that the gates need to rise the club makes no effort to win over 'casual' supporters. The lack of foot traffic has already led to the sale of key players this season.(10)(6)


29 Mar 2012 12:04:16
former gills player micky Adams who is a good friend of gills chairman paul scally will return to priestfield as manager in the summer(7)(4)


29 Mar 2012 11:18:39
Bristol city will consider enterring Administration if relegated, huge losses and wage bills miles to high have left Owner Steve Landsdowne considering his options and looks increasing likely to concentrate on Bristol RFC whom he took control off recently (he sees this as a quicker better option for big success)(15)(9)Sigh. This is paranoia taken from a very old thread on OTIB. Since then, Lansdowne Has publically committed himself to both BCFC, BRU and the new stadium.I also posted this 6 months ago, I have a family member who works in the office at Ashton gate and it is rife that BCFC will go into administration in the next 6 months,


28 Mar 2012 21:15:10
Scouts at Burton Albion yesterday from Walsall and Oldham thought to be watching Jacques Maghoma and Justin Richards(3)(9)


28 Mar 2012 18:07:44
walsall are set to re-sign defender tom williams on a deal untill the end of the season as back up for mat sadler(5)(17)


28 Mar 2012 18:04:07
ruud boffin could move to wigan on a freebie in the summer for a back up keeper or if they get relegated and sell al habsi(9)(8)Is he a ignorant genius


28 Mar 2012 18:02:15
henri lansbury is a loan target for wigan(18)(9)


28 Mar 2012 16:57:09
wigan are thought to be preparing a bid for joe ledley(14)(18)Better have a lot of money thenQuid 50 oughta do it rightTenner and a packet of skips. And even that's pushing it! Awful player!Joe is great and we wont sell on the cheap. He's real qualityQuality in the SPL is League Two standard down here.And epl is serie b standardWhich is still a million miles better than the SPL. Don't see your point. The SPL is even worse now its only a one horse race every year! What a joke!Im a Rangers fan , but hows it league 2 standered? Wasent Ledley Cardiff captain before he moved? wasent hooper bangin them in for scunny?The boy that said he is league 2 standard knows nothing about football with him playing for Cardiff a top championship team and turned down the chance to go to StokeWow Cardiff and Stoke! Surprised he isn't being chased by Barca. Saw him the other day and apart from having no first touch, no passing ability, no positional know-how and no pace he's an alright player. He took a throw in that went to a teammate I think. That was good.


28 Mar 2012 15:00:22
Everton will wait to see if Rickie Lambert is a success in the Prem. If he scores goals in the first half of next season Moyes will be ready with £3m which is a good sum for a 30 year old.
Inside info.(8)(44)Your really kidding yourself if you think rickie lambert would go to you and for 3 million lol. if he hits it in the prem then the only place he will going is at the top half of the table with southampton! upthesaints!And he will be told he won't have a striker coming. 3m for top scorer three seasons in a row, and then if he does well in prem? he's better than Grant Holt, and even Holt is worth more than that. Tell your inside info not to waste their time.Dream on!

If Lambert scored goals for Saints in the first half of the Premiership why would they want to sell him to Everton, or anyone else? If a club was interested in signing him then perhaps they should make a judgement and back it-like Saints did.
Any player scoring well in the Premiership is worth a lot more than 3m, no matter what his age. And Saints certainly do not need the money so why would they sell?
I think you will find that if Saints do make the Premiership for next season they will not be that charitable to Everton, or any other club looking for cut price bargains. Just because the guy comes from the Liverpool area does not mean he would want to return to it-what chances did he get up there?
He is now fitter than he has ever been and playing the best in his career, so sorry no chance.Saints, next seasons whipping boys..
roll on next season..Lambert united will be screwed if they sell their star/only playerI think you will find there are quite a few more star players at Saints, in addition to Lambert.
Have a look at Saints web site posted today and the developments that are going on quietly and efficiently behind the scenes.
You guys in the Premiership who have capitalised on Saints Academy developing players like Bale, Walcott, O-C, and then allowing them to go, these days are over so forget it. Develope your own players and don't expect any charity from us in the future.
Whilst I would not claim Rickie has been developed at Saints, I think you will find such players will want to be part of that future.
As for whipping boys, we will see as and when we get there. Something equally as thick was said about Norwich and Swansea I recall!Lambert is not in holts class, but saints wii do fineHolt doesnt have a class. He is a wardrobe that bundles stuff over the line and bundles people over. He gets away with murder that guy, fouls so oftenLambert is twice the player Holt is and holts not to shabby .. if a prem club had the bottle to take Lambo from Bristol rovers instaed of saints he would be in the England Euros squadWho's Rickie Lambert?So who thinks that Southampton are better than Everton, please your are joking, who else could run a club that's financially poor but a very very good team in Everton, they have the best manager, lets see if Southampton if they go up, can spend sod all and survive, my monies on Everton to be a premiership club a lot longer than Southampton, remember the rules, you must not but any players if and once your in the Premiership, {Ed025's Note - that is a no contest mate...everton are the 4th most successful team in english football....southampton is a city famous for sailing..and always will be..Rickie lambert for 3m are you mad ! he is worth 10m now and i am a huddersfield fan.What are you talking about everton have been buying big players over the years for big money (Marouane Fellaini) for starters lol so saying everton run things for no money is ridiculous.Lambert is a Liverpool fan and would never play for their poor relations...Southampton are the pride of the south coast...and always will be...He could do a job as understudy to jelavicTo old, to slow, nowhere near good enough, but if they are strap for cash, i do know someone who might give them 35 mill for him !Too old, too slow, will be found out in the championship...oh, hang on!Wont score 8 prem goals if Southampton come up for the year!You're right, he will score at least double that!


28 Mar 2012 11:08:03
Doncaster rovers legend
Adam lockwood could
be joining up with his old manager
Richard O'kelly at hereford fc(8)(5)


28 Mar 2012 09:38:44
England are in talks with two candidates over the possible role of Technical Director within The FA and the national football sides.
The first candidate is thought to be the Sir Trevor Brooking. The West Ham legend is thought to be interested in the new role and The FA could be tempted to appoint within.
The second, more surprising option is Wolfsburg boss Felix Magath. The former Schalke manager is keen on getting out of the pressures within football management and could sign a four year deal with The FA in a new role that could pay Magath around £4 million a year.(5)(12)Steve Mcshambles and Gareth Southgate also interested.I've heard they want Steve CoppellWhat exactly does trevor brooking do for the
f a besides f a ?Almost word for word what was in to-days papersI understand that Dan Ashworth of West Brom is the number one target.

Hopefully he will choose to stay with the Baggies.


28 Mar 2012 09:25:38
Chelsea have opened talks with Bordeaux manager Francis Gillot over possibly taking over the club in the summer. Gillot performed wonders at French sides Lens and Sochaux but despite an average year this season, the 52 year old has done more than enough with his previous clubs to impress the Stamford Bridge board.(4)(25)


28 Mar 2012 08:00:31
Norwich City will sign Glasgow Rangers' Rhys McCabe after being very impressed with the player this season especially during the recent old firm derby(19)(18)No Chance, the wee man's "Blue" through & through.

He's easily top 6 EPL quality.No they won't he better than NorwichUtter rubbish "impressed with his performances this season" he's played 3 games and was average in 2 of them!I think the owner of this drivel watched the game on Sunday, saw he had a decent game then thought of an average Prem team to link him with. Unfortunately Rangers no longer have any players good enough for the top few leagues in England. The lad could get a run out for Dag & Red maybe?He's better than Norwich? Norwich are better than Rangers-and solvent!Right lets get some cold hard facts on the table - (1) The level of Rangers football at the moment is at best about English Championship standard, ans (2) The guys only just made it into the first team and only then because Rangers don't have any money to buy anyone. Therefore my question is.....Why.....Norwich starting XI are alot better than that championship club and players Norwich if the Old Firm where in the premier league there teams now who be top 10 and would get 3 or 4 other good players and would challenge for Europe


28 Mar 2012 06:40:36
Norwich City aim to sign forest pair Chris Gunter, whom City had 2 bids rejected for in January, and Garath McCleary who would be available on a free transfer with his contract set to expire in the summer(19)(14)McCleary is signing a new deal, so you will need to pay around 4million. Oh wait, you won't be able to afford that.Dont worry about what norwich city can aford, who will be joining u during closed season? Injoy L1Signing a new deal is he? Mm, the appeal of mid-table mediocrity with the occasional excitement of a relegation scare down in the Championship must be appealing!

In anycase, he's joining Derby as part of the continuing Clough revolution, at least he'll play in the Prem with the Rams!

As for Norwich I don't think, after two seasons in the Prem you need to worry about who they can and can't afford!McCleary signing new deal! with what are they paying him as forest chairman Frank Clark has said " the golden goose has gone" they have money for 2 years thanks to thier late owner, they will need the reduce the wage bill and sell to cover debt and brake ever before the Nigel Doughty's money runs out.I can see Chris Gunter finally joining Norwich as it's been an open secret for sometime that PL is interested. However I can't see McCleary moving to Carrow Road. Norwich are a Prem team now and need to buy players who can help maintain that position not untried ones who appear happy messing around in the lower reaches of the Championship.


28 Mar 2012 03:02:44
Norwich City are determined to beat the odds and land Wilfried Zaha early in the approaching transfer window(11)(37)Complete bcksWe couldint aford the fee palace would want, just as good players av and much cheaper. He is over rated. Clyne scannell heading to very topI hope not, he's over-rated and far to expensive for Norwich's budget. Now Clyne that's a different matter.......
