Real Madrid`s next manager will be Roberto Mancini who will be replaced at city by Chelsea interium --manager Rafa Benitez. Madrid will sign Luis Suarez from liverpool. A. V. B will leave Tottenham and join PSG with Gareth Bale joining PSG. Tottenham will appoint David Moyes as their new manager. Everton will appoint former player Mark Hughes as manager. Stoke city will appoint Ian Holloway. Arsenal will sign Zlatan Ibrahimovic from psg and resign man city`s Samir Nasri from Man City. West Ham will sign Peter Crouch from Stoke City Newcastle United are set to sack Alan Pardew and replace him with Martin O`Neill. MR AGENT.

Mon will never get the job at Newcastle because he's managed Sunderland it's the same as sir Alex would never get the job at man city they is that much pride

Mancini to Madrid? O'Neill to Newcastle? AVB won't got to psg

It could be a lively 2013/2014 season if Benitez and Sir Alex manage in the same city. Am not sure that Benitez is as up for the mind games as the revered (by some) United Manager.

Watford looking to bring in young polish keeper pawlowski wojciech from udinese, in time to face leicester on a emergency loan with the leagues approval

He is not signing on an emergency loan. FACT. However he will join in the summer in time for next season.

Yes just read that too, will join up on Monday, done deal :-)

I don't know that he s allowed, the loan has to be british

He is not joining on loan this season.

He will join on loan in the summer ready to play as number 1 next season

05 May 2013 18:25:32
He will not be given permission surely I mean all there team is Udinese any way and because I Leicester Fan there 3rd choice is good enough

Emergency loans exist only under FL rules, so are possible only among FL teams. International loans can only occur during transfer windows.
But quite possible for next season. {Ed003's Note - There is a meeting about these short term transfers(international loans) this summer to decide what to do about them if anything, so we will have to wait until the outcome of that.}

I'm a Watford fan and we would need dispensation from the Football League for an emergency loan which they would not give us.

Like I told you all. Pawlowski would not be signing yesterday. He will join in the summer.



04 May 2013 21:54:58

Plymouth Argyle are set to make 2 signings by the end of the week - both free agents - as John Sheridan wants to sort out his squad as soon as possible and avoid players being poached by other clubs

I hope he will we need some good players at plymouth

Matt green-mansfeild Jakespeight-mansfeild Jakeforster caskey-brighton Luke mcormick-oxford peter vincenti-aldershot Neil trotman-chesterfeild Adam boyd-hartlepool papa bouba diop-bimingham casey thomas-free agent peter leven-oxford Jake hyde-barnet outs= rene gilmartin-york anthony charles-manfeild jared sims-dover warren feeney-kidderminster jamie lowry-mansfeild nick chadwick-gateshead ollie chenoweth-released

Emile Heskey set to join on loan. {Ed025's Note - who exactly?..


You have to guess Ed.



04 May 2013 21:10:30
Huddersfield town
James Vaughan
Lee Tomlin
Corey Evans
Adam hammill

Alan lee
Scott arfield
Chris Atkinson
Lee Novak

Vaughan at Huddersfield already

Tomlin will never come he hates Huddersfield
Evans won't leave because he starts in a prem team
Hammill couldn't get in wolves' or town team so can't see it happening
Vaughan has to choose town or derby but I think he'll choose town

05 May 2013 07:41:24
Vaughan's loan finished on Saturday.

He is on loan

But he isn't though, he was on loan!

He was on loan, hopefully we will buy him now

I want vaughan back next season

Below is the biggest Summer transfer rumors and their sources:

Manchester United attacking midfielder Ashley Young is on his way to Turkey, with Galatasary offering to pay £16,750,000 for him. [The Sun]

Chelsea offer £21,000,000 PLUS Kevin De Bruyne for Dortumna striker Robert Lewandowski. [GMF]

West Ham are hoping to sell Carlton Cole to make funds to sign Andy Carroll. Sources say they are willing to pay £13,000,000 for the Geordie. [SaturdaySport]

Wigan looking to sign Craig Gordon if they stay up this year. [Irish Sporting World]

Jordan Ayew is on his way to Chelsea from Marsille. The French club are looking for £18,000,000. [Daily World]

What do you think about these Eddie?

04 May 2013 21:12:35
Carlton Cole is out on contract at the end of the season!

Westham ain't going to get much for him!

Young never worth 16M



04 May 2013 20:39:41
Leeds to sign dundee united winger gary mackay- steven this summer for a fee of around 1.2 million

Nonsense. Going to cardif

I don't think Mackay-Steven would come to Leeds. Would love it if he did though!



04 May 2013 20:15:26
doncaster ins
dean furman
john lundstram loan
joe murphy
gary madine

doncaster outs
kyle bennett
neil sullivan retire
paul keegan
lee fowler

Sullivans not retireing he's been offered another year

No player has yet to be offered a contract. We don't have a manager yet. The manager is first then 43 year old Sullivan

Keegan played well start of the season and would be worth keeping. I would imagine Harper will be an out.



04 May 2013 20:12:20
Celtic outs
Kelvin Wilson to Newcastle £4m - £6m
Victor Wanyama to Manchester United or arsenal £12m -£20m
Hooper to Swansea £6m
Joe Lesley to Cardiff £6m - £8m

Celtic INS
Jon Walters £3.5m - £5m
Pablo piatti from valencia £6m
Gary McKay-Steven "2.5m
Also a few young gems have reported to be scouted and are on Neil Lemnons radar.
Although the players potentially leaving have all stated they want to stay at Celtic as they want a challenge in the champions league and don't want to leave the legendary club.
James Forrest has also been linked with spurs and everton as we'll as Liverpool joining the race for wanyama

There's no chance of Joe Ledley coming back to Cardiff. He's not good enough for the Premiership and the Fans wouldn't want him. Looks like Inverness Caledonian thistle for him to look forward to next year. However we would like Adam Mathews to come home.

We wouldn't pay 2m for ledley never mind 6m

Hope there's truth in Hooper coming to us, quality player who would relish a PL debut ans what better team to do it with!

Sorry Cardiff fans, I'm not in any way anti-Cardiff and congratulate you on your promotion, my step-father is a fan of yours, but your owner has already proven that he'll do what he wants to regardless of what the fans want!

05 May 2013 09:37:07
KELVIN WILSON. 4-6m, he's not worth 2m. Obvious Celtic fan over rating your players!

Would love to see Hopper playing for us next season. Can't see him leaving Celtic though. All the strikers we have been linked to or rumored to sign sound good, bar iago aspas, he seems a bit like another Danny Graham with a bit more pace. Yet we seem more likely to sign him that any other rumored striker.

Wilson 4 to 6 mill you're having a laugh i'll take him there free of charge

06 May 2013 14:45:47
To the guy who said about TAN, yes he has changed our colours and badge, but to say that has any impact on who we buy is irrelevant, he has always left the football side of things to Malky and rightly so, not only that he has admitted and so have others around the club that he doesn't know much about football although he is beginning to get more into it. Joe Ledley won't be coming to Cardiff city. Blooobirds!

Ledley wants to stay at celtic anyway for champions league



04 May 2013 20:11:52
The Addicks are set to raid wolves for trio Karl Henry, Stephen Hunt and Dorus de Vries

Charlton midfielder Florent Rouamba who has not played a game for the addicks since joining the club will sign for league one side Walsall in the summer

Wouldnt want any of those wolves players - Rouamba I don't know about at all

Never going to afford any of these players wages

Yep we are really going to sign 3 players from a team we played off the park just the other week whose wages will be sky high. Oh wait we're not.

As for Rouamba he's been basically on trail for this period, expect to see more of him next season.

06 May 2013 19:45:01
The one player at Wolves that would improve the Addicks is Ebanks-Blake, currently injured and out of our price range anyway I would imagine.

As for Rouamba he was never intended as a signing for this season, it was always expected he would start next season. It's only two weeks since he had a permit, he's an international player of some potential if (and I do mean if) he goes off to Walsall it will be on loan preparing him for the Championship.



04 May 2013 19:54:56
Wolves goalkeeper Mari�n Kello is to join local rivals Walsall when he is released, following wolves relegation into league one

The Wanderers will sign Febian Brandy who is yet to commit to Walsall's contract offer, they are also interested in Burton midfielder Jacques Maghoma

Brandy will move to a Championship club if he does leave.



04 May 2013 20:43:12
Former Walsall goalkeeper James Belshaw in talks with Walsall after the goalkeeper has spent a few seasons playing in America. Would of signed before the end of the season but couldn't be registered. Been training with Walsall for a few months. Heard this from the man himself.



04 May 2013 20:20:49
Now the season is over and Huddersfield Town are still in the championship they are looking at:
Lewin Nyatanga (Bristol City) 700k to 800k
James vaughan (Norwich City) 1.5 million
Dwight Gayle (Peterborough United) 900k
Luke Chambers (Ipswich Town) 750k
Tom Heaton (Bristol City) 850k as a back up to Ale Smithies.
They are looking to get rid of:
Alan lee (Rotherham United) free
Lee Novak (Preston North End) out of contract at the end of season.
Tom Clarke (league 1 Club)
Scott Arfield (league 1 Club)

Chambo just got player of the year at ipswich, no chance he'll leave! And not for less than a couple of million!

Dwight Gayle will cost a lot more than 900K

Don't make me laugh Luke chambers would never leave to go to a lower club

Tom Heaton is out of contract so could join for free where did you get 850K from?

Luke chambers 750k ha ha, he has been one of our best players and got player of the year why lower his standards

Smithes on his way to Ipswich 500k, back up to Loach

Nyatanga for £700-800k? I'll get my car keys. Heaton's a free agent, however. And we'd like to keep him.

Nyatanga is out of contract - but if you want to pay us £800k then feel free!

Tom heaton spent too long at Cardiff as 2nd choice keeper, so I can't see him wanting to make a move unless he is no. 1 choice

Cant see heaton joining, he already spent a season on the bench at cardiff so I don't see him wanting to do that again at huddersfield

Heaton said that he would leave if he's guarrenteed first team football in the championship if not hell sign a new contract with us.

Norwich will not be involved in any transfers until they know which division they are playing in next season

Can you take Fontaine aswell they all cost us the championship

The prices quoted are ridiculaus.

Nytanga and heaton would both probably be free, as niether have proper contracts for next year, only options thatit doesn't look like the club will take up.



04 May 2013 19:19:08
Adam Chicksen to join Notts County to replace the departing Sheehan, who will turn down the contract on offer. Chicksen wants to leave MK Dons in search of first team football at left back. He won't get it at MK due to Lewington staying.
Notts will also sign Green from Mansfield, and John Bostock fro Spurs.
Kiwomya is also in talks with a right back from an unknown league 1 team, as well as Tomas Cywka who is out of contract at Barnsley.

Sheehan has said he's staying

Totally agree on the money for the team
The boys have just saved the club upto 6 million pounds,
Not to mention the extra money the club has received that they did not budget for at the start of the season,
3 million for stones
500 thousand for Davies
Plus the extra money from the cup run,
That's at least another 4 million.
We need some of that in the team.

Remember mark robins he asked for more like oliver and he then got the barnsley chop flikkers is worth more than that the board should back him finnancaly we need a better defence look at our goal difference this division will get harder and harder just come back from cleethorpes passed the old grimsby football ground if we don't invest we will travel down the same road



04 May 2013 19:06:20
Daren't bent to Leicester if they go up

04 May 2013 21:53:44
Getting a little ahead of ourselves there matey, I'm a Leicester fan and we have three games to win before we should be writing our wish list. doh



04 May 2013 19:03:59
Tranmere looking at signing Gary Roberts in the summer. There is also talk of the following ; Gareth Roberts, Ryan Lowe, Paul Gentle, Sodje, Omar Daley and Colin Jones



04 May 2013 19:03:07
The signings of grant, baptiste, Martin and Forsyth to be announced in the next 2 weeks



04 May 2013 18:49:16
Any news on Current QPR defender Clint Hill is he staying or going, I've heard he could be going back to his former club Tranmere, please leve what you've heard below!

He did an interview on 7waves radio back in November and said he would be interested in a move back to TRFC if the club wanted him

Unfortunately Clint hill has been QPR's best defender all season and IMO still could do a job in the championship, so a move and huge pay cut seems unlikely.

Ha ha tranmere cudn;t afford his wages that he's on.



04 May 2013 18:21:07
Charlton ins
conor Henderson free
mark gower free
john obika free
Thomas eisfield free
Charlton outs
yado mambo free
ricardo fuller free
john Sullivan free
dale stephens 2m
danny hollands 250k
bwp free
matt taylor free

Who's Danny Hollands going to?

Danny hollands is going to bournemouth or Swindon
also kerkar will be released
doin these moves will lower wage bill by about 1m probably, combine this with a turnover to go up to 14m Charlton will make a loss of about 4m



04 May 2013 18:05:08
Neil Warnock has been spotted in Doncaster (Bawtry) within the last 2 days.

Warnock would be incredible at Doncaster and no doubt within 2 years push us into the playoffs!

He wants a job down south near to his
Devon [think it's Devon or that way!]
farm and family.

Would love to see warnock as long as Shaun Derry doesn't follow!

04 May 2013 21:23:02
he lives in plymouth

04 May 2013 22:01:52
haha, he's mad, a crap motivator and his style of football will have you calling for his head by November. He's lost whatever touch he had. Also Leeds have no replacement for Paddy kenny, so he won't go anywhere until Kenny's available

Mr Happy



04 May 2013 18:00:03
Current Dynamo Kiev left back Taye Taiwo who is on loan from Ac Milan is being tracked by Swansea, West ham and West brom.

Swansea don't need another left back they already have taylor amd davies.



04 May 2013 17:59:31
Scott Sinclair was at the Liberty Stadium today although not selected for the bench which could mean he could well be on his way back to the Swans. How do I know this? I had a photo with him before entering the stadium. Heard two blokes talking saying it was a 4.8m done deal, not sure how true that maybe though.

This could be due to the fact that Manchester city were playing Swansea and that all player have to make the away trip

04 May 2013 18:23:08
or he was just travelling with his team? like most players do when they are injured or not selected.

The same Scott Sinclair that is in hospital with a blood clot in his shoulder?



04 May 2013 17:44:38
Billy McKay to doncaster



04 May 2013 17:40:45

Reading want to sign Richard Chaplow and Billy Sharp.
Southampton want Victor Wanyama.
West Brom want Nathan Chabolah on loan from Chelsea after seeing how well Lukaku has done.
Swansea want Francis Coquelin on loan.
Hull want to sign Connor Wickham, Adam Le Fondre and Adrian Mariappa. They want to keep David Stockdale who is on loan.
Cardiff want to sign Andros Townsend on loan from QPR and are interested in signing Bobby Zamora.
Nottingham Forest want to sign Karl Henry and Bakary Sako for a combined fee of 2.5 million

Sako is going to Germany

Isn't Townsend on loan from spurs?

04 May 2013 20:02:44
Be hard to sign Townsend from qpr as he's only on loan there

Even though Townsend plays for Tottenham?

Sako will go to west brom

05 May 2013 16:59:09
Sharp won't go to reading maybe one of the bigger championship sides

There aren't any bigger Championship sides then Reading {Ed034's Note - one season in the prem doesn't make you the biggest side in the championship



04 May 2013 17:18:43
Spoke to an un named source in bristol city today. 2 deals have already been agreed for players leaving. They are both player plus cash deals.
Albert adomah has been sold to middelsborough for 750k plus marvin emnes on a season long loan to help marvin get over some personal issues, and a season out of the limelight.
The second deal is sam baldock is heading to swansea for 1 million plus leroy lita, with the option to sign lita at the end of the year.
You all probably think this is rubbish, but trust me these deals will happen.

We'd want more than £750k for Albert, Emnes not sure but a loan deal makes sense. As for Lita coming back, don't think he'd be that welcome, and would he want L1 footie?

Lita bk at the gate would be great but league 1 why would he when he has a number of championship clubs wanting him and Albert is on the transfer list for 1. 8 - 2mil & Lita would want wages that far exceed what we already pay Albert.



04 May 2013 16:53:52
Bury set to resign former Gigg Lane Legend Ryan Lowe from MK Dons if he is refused a new contract. Also, another ex-shaker Damien Mozika looks likely to resign after being released by Scunthorpe. Both Lowe and Mozika were major parts in Bury's promotion in 2010/11

04 May 2013 21:06:44
Why would Lowe who scored 12 goals for mk last season join league 2 side bury?

Ryan Lowe is under contract to June 2014 so come back next year

Ryan Lowe wants to return to the North to be nearer his roots but favours Tranmere Rovers not Bury.



04 May 2013 16:50:31
Portsmouth set to sign Frederic piquionne on a 1 year contract in the next couple of days

Piquionne and Agyemang, Good : )

Aha surely got to be a joke this person put it on hear for fun come on please as a Pompey fan I would love him but can't see it happening hope that you prove me wrong play up Pompey

Aha got to be a joke surely would be quality if we had him at fratton again but can't see this happening I really do hope that it will though :) pup

Dont think its true we've been linked with all the players that were with us that season and we got Connolly

Would love him back but think he would want too much in wages and we really do need to be sensible in that area.

Wage demands would be an obsticle unless it was as I've seen on here loan for the mls off season



04 May 2013 16:47:44
Harry Middleton and james husband wanted by dean saunders at wolves

Never going to get James husband



04 May 2013 16:27:51
Middlesbrough want chesterfield duo tommy lee (gk) and tedayi darikwa (rm) rumoured fee around £1.5m for the pair! Good signings if true lee is a good shot stopper, and darikwa has pace and skill but his control let's him Down at times.

Boro jacko386

No chance

About 5 clubs in for Tommy Lee 4 in Championship.1 mill is the price so that bit is spot on

Why do we need a league 2 keeper when we have steele whos 10 times the player lee is

Big fan of steele, doesn't hurt to have a back up keeper though, but tommy will want 1st team without fail and will not move without that clause in his contract

08 May 2013 13:50:24
10 times the player? Have you seen Lee play? Rated by Mark Crossley as the best keepers outside the top two divisions.

Yet we are in the top two divisions. Steele is rated by some as the best keeper outside the premier league.



04 May 2013 16:18:52
Joel Grant To stay



04 May 2013 15:52:11
Huddersfield Transfers. In. James Vaughan- Norwich- 1 million. Lewin Nyatanga- Bristol City- 750k. Adam Hammill- Wolves- 1. 25mil. Leon Clarke- Coventry-650k. Grant McCann- Peterborough- 400k. Cameron Jerome- Stoke- 2.5mil. Luke Chambers- Ipswich- 800k. Out. Jack Hunt- Cardiff- 3mil. Scott Arfield-Preston-500k. Lee Novak- Preston- 1mil. Alan Lee-Rotherham-Free. Chris Atkinson-Bradford-Free.

Lee Novak is out of contract so I can't see Preston paying 1 million.

04 May 2013 18:02:23
Evans has confirmed he has been in scotland looking at potential targets, he has also stated that he is closing in on a Right Back.


Think town will give Novak a contract then sell him to Preston

Grayson has already agreed the following deals, Novack (Free) from Huddersfield, Ben Pringle (£250K) from Rotherham, Vardy (season loan) from Leicester, Darby (RB from Bradford City) £150K. Bailey Wright will be sold to Leicester City for £1 million. There will also be three youth signings released by Premiership clubs.

3 mill for jack, hope he plays in another position than full back.

Mcann is free not on a contract as from today

04 May 2013 18:52:51
If you were udders were to sign these players you are talking around 7 million pounds

what a load of tosh, go back to playing CM13

This total and utter nonsense

So your going to buy nyatanga even though his contract runs out in the summer.

04 May 2013 19:41:25
Chambers won't leave ipswich for huddersfield

Grant McCann would NEVER, and I mean NEVER sign for Huddersfield.

Pringle won't leave Rotherham at all, he's just signed a 2 year deal and is a big player in the squad that are pushing on, we have learn from Alan Lee not to sell your best players.

No way is Jerome leaving for £2.5 million.
Minimum £6million

You will need 1.5 million for chambers after how well he has played since MM took over!

Luke chambers! someone is living in dream land

What about beckford?

04 May 2013 21:07:03
Don't think we'll get jerome

Chambers won't leave ipswich

McCann is out of contract at Posh

What about beckford?

You Won't get Cammy Jerome

Robins doesn't like beckford not enough work rate so thankfully we won't sign him

McCann will go to
Whoever offers him the most money, fact of life

Not sure about Lee Novak joining PNE, but Alan Lee could be a surprise signing for Preston on 12 month contract.

North End won't pay £1m for Novak-an out of contract player. Derek Shaw would have but fortunately he has gone to ruin some other club.

So huddersfield rate their POTS and player that kept them up on the final day at 1million?

1.5m at the least.



04 May 2013 15:50:34
Flitcroft offered permanent contract at Barnsley after he kept them in championship against all the odds.

Now we are safe listened to flickers interview on radio sheff and I think what he was saying money is needed for better players as he doesn't want annother season and this could be a stumbling block to him signing any contract

All we heard from don rowing was that the club will lose 5 to 6 million if we go down let's now see how much of this we get to improve the squad and push on for the play offs next season flickers will be off he won't want annother season like this

Well done flitcroft on keeping barnsley up you have players who want to play for the club not lik bristol city

Owls fan in peace well done barnsley I know how hard it is to afford games for all south yorks clubs, so knowing some people from your neck of woods sound people and glad you stayed up all the best for you for next season.

Nice comment, from an owls fan
It sounds like you are of the same opinion as I am,
Next season is going to be great for the Yorkshire sides,
Local Derby's galore, can only help our clubs finances, well done dony, come the blunts,
Lets make it a full house,

The only money available is 60% of our turnover, it's up to the fans to turn up so the income goes up, it's as simple as that, it's no use doing what Bristol have just done, posted loses in excess of 14m and getting relegated, sorry flicker we as fans and also the players need to get real, there's no more money in the pot!!

So please tell me where the 5 to 6 million went

The 5-6 million was a worst case estimate, its nearer 4m, if the average wage is £4,000, and we've got twenty players, that equates to £4.2m that's without the backroom staff, reserves, running costs etc,

So what you are saying is if we had gone down there would only be the club cat and a groundsman left come on pull the middle one i'm called jake now seriously flickkers is am bitious he wants to break the cycle of struggling season in season out if you want to keep him provide him with the money otherwise its annother struggle again for the fans and bye bye flickkers aren't wolves after annother manager ect

It's not about money, if it was wolves would have stayed up!, and if flitcroft wants to leave there's always someone else!, he wasn't even in the frame twenty games ago, he's done a good job, but if being publicly rejected by two managers can't motivate you then nothing will, and let's be honest flitcroft was there with Keith hill, if he leaves give Micky Mellon and Andy Scott the job, isn't that when the fortunes of our club started too improve,

Sorry to deflate you but you can't spend what you haven't got, we did that once before, and went into administration, so rather the cat and the grounds man than no club at all!

Why would mellis go to Leeds. Delusions again as to their attractions to good players. By the way we didn't go down so we can look forward to another 3 points off you again at least next season

Not having Wanyama

Stoke buying Pilkington for £10M? haha!

Haven't seen Wanyama linked to Liverpool at all and there's no way we will be buying Le Fondre. Especially for £5m!

Pilkinton is worth 2m tops! And Stoke would get a better winger than him!

Canas is coming on a FREE my friend, could've had him for just over £1m in January bud decided to hold out until his contract EXPIRES end of this season, so the assumption can be made that your predictions are all wrong!

04 May 2013 21:14:15
Why don't Cardiff ever spend consider considering they say their Malaysian- Arab suger daddies are so rich? Oh well easy 6 points for us swans next year I suppose!

So did you just make half of this stuff up? Ridiculous list. Adam Le Fondre to Southampton for *5* million? You're mad sir.

Schurrle is £22mil by the way and Remy's buy out clause is £8.5mil so why would anyone pay £10mil?

So your saying Jordan Rhodes scored 30 goals in a poor team and his value has dropped by 500K? - GET REAL!

You my friend, are a liar and not even a very good one. Not really vaguely believable as a list.

10m for Pilkington, you're having a giraffe

Cardiff spent £12 million get your facts right

£10m for Pilkington, really.

These are all possible mate

I think I can smell something.
oh right, it's rubbish!

Le Fondre to saints, great shout mate! It's not like we've already got Lambert, Rodriguez. or ambition!

Have you taken a recent blow to the head?!

After emile heskeys great form in OZ I heard man united wanted him as replacement for Van Persie as he's heading back to holland to play for Helmond Sports in the 2nd division

If this is just a made up post I thought I'd join in :) think its more likely to happen than Pilkington go for £10 mil and Le Fondre go to saints?!

Because Newcastle are really gunna sell their top 2 players, especially to PL clubs

05 May 2013 13:58:21
Thank goodness saints managed to beat a weakened Chelsea team a few weeks ago it could be a close run thing with goal average the only thing that keeps us up.

Well Newcastle will have to sell the best players to premier league clubs if they get relegated.

Joe Allen was 15m so why wouldn't Pilkington be 10m?

5 mill for alex mccarthy your having a laugh at least 12 mill



04 May 2013 15:26:01
Howe, Hyde and Leven - Plymouths top priority signings for July 1st

Would be quality signings, along with Super Luke back at the club these four and another four will be a fantastic summer, Leven is just the player we need. Bit like Charlie Adam.


04 May 2013 20:55:36
Argyle favourites to sign Leven

Hope this is true also looking like well sign vincenti aswell

Vincenti=great singning

05 May 2013 22:13:50
Vincenti is terrible, barley good enough for league 2, no thanks.

Vincenti would be a great signing for argyle he is 6foot4 and would be on free transfer when plays against us he always scores. height and a goalscorer everything argyle need



04 May 2013 15:55:22
Tom Clarke to Dagenham/Accrington/Chesterfield/. As lots of clubs are interested in the out of favour local lad



04 May 2013 15:15:28
Doncaster are set to offer 500k for Southend left back Anthony Straker

Don't waste your money he's more fit for playing ryman football

Yes because we are going to be making bids with no manager what a brilliant post you have done

Take him he is awful

Why does everybody seem to think that we will be be paying over 1 million on a team full of league 2 players next season?

He's useless! Southend would take what they paid out in compensation for him (17k). but if you want to pay 500k? we'll take it!

Cheers for a good joke though.



04 May 2013 15:09:59
Leyton Orient are showing an interest in Mark Gower and are closing in on former striker Jabo Ibhere who had been offered a contract by Colchester United.

Yes please to both.

Southend are favourites to sign Ibhere. The Shrimpers boss has already had talks with the striker.
He is one of three former Orient players high on their wanted list. the other two are Jimmy Smith and Calvin Andrew.

Genuine Inside Info.

Gower is to old and would want a fair bit of wages would love ibhere back any day of the week

Ibhere to Southend! I don't think some how! Works his arse of to help keep Colchester in League 1 then he goes and turns down Orient's and Colchester's contacts in league one to play in leauge 2! Yeah definitely going to happen!

Not to mention Jabo is an O's man through and through. and he's a top bloke to boot.

05 May 2013 18:21:53

Jabo back to Leyton Orient?
Its not going to happen.
On his way to Southend?
big possibility. Would be good for both parties.

Jabo will NOT sign for a league 2 side

Source : Jabo himself!

Reminder, Southend are a league 2 side



04 May 2013 15:06:46
Former Leyrton Orient Midfielder Jimmy Smith is attracting interest from Southend who have offered a two year contract, Portsmouth and Bristol Rovers.

Bournemouth preparing summer swoop for Dagehnam Full Back Femi Ilesanmi.

Where in the championhsip now not league 1,

^ Back up?



04 May 2013 14:31:23
Sam Walker to sign a season long loan deal with Colchester United in June, following a succesful spell with the Essex side on loan from Chelsea.

Colchester have also signed Mason Spence from MK Dons, and have offered a new contract to John White, Jabo Ibehre and reserve team keeper Mark Cousins.

U's looking for a Left Back, Midfielder & a Winger/Wide Forward. Manager Joe Dunne has a long list of targets but is unlikely to do much business until players contracts run out at the end of May.

Good luck with Walker he was absolutely useless at Bristol Rovers - he#ll be playing non league in two years

05 May 2013 02:13:36
walker has come on a lot over the last few months. his kicking isn't amazing and his command of the box isn't great for someone his size, but both have improved a lot since he came on loan. he feels wanted at colu and has flourished with the backing the fans have given him.

in 2 years time I can see him being a championship keeper.

Walker has been immense this season and a very good keeper. Anyone in the championship would be lucky to have him let along league 1

Mason Spence has been released by MK Dons and is a free agent. Very promising defender and would be a good addition for Colchester if true. Surprised the Dons released him.

The Dons don't run an under 21's while Col you do. What would have been the point offering him a deal when he's nowhere near breaking into the first team (unlike Alli, Rasulo & Galloway)?

It'll be an issue for the Dons over the next couple of years until the reach EPPP level 2. We'll have to make tough decisions.

As for Spence, not sure he's any good. Had the advantage of being the tallest and strongest physically in his age group but didn't look to have the first touch or pace needed to be considered special enough to break through into the first team. If Col you can afford to keep such players on the books to see how they develop then good luck to them.

06 May 2013 00:16:50
Would have to disagree that Spence lacks pace and first touch, was the best player on the pitch on his debut and rumor has it that Karl Robinson released him because of budget rather than ability, would be very promising for the might U's

He's (Spence) looked pretty ordinary every time I've seen him for the under 18's? Do you go to Woughton often? I'd probably know you if you do.

As for his debut at Sixfields, he looked well out of his depth. only go through it by some hand-holding from Alan Smith & Jimmy Bullard who were barking instructions at him the whole night.

Of course it's about budget. We can't afford passengers. and there's far better players than him in our set up.



04 May 2013 13:34:01
Stoke will look to Resign Leicester City Winger Ben Marshall for £3 million as a replacement for Matthew Etherington

Jon Walters will also leave in the summer with Celtic being Favourites at £4 million

Wwould love this but not going to happen with pulis in charge, he wouldn't drop Walters once nevermind sell him, also he probably kept a grudge against Marshall for leaving because Pulis wouldn't play him

I doubt marshall will resign and not worth 3 mil 1.5 mil max and walters will not be going il bet anything on that one

Marshall can`t even get in Leicester`s starting line up but you claim Stoke will pay 5x what they sold him for. They got about the right price for him.



04 May 2013 13:32:53
Forsyth staying at Watford so Derby will turn again to target Cunningham of Bristol City, who has a relegation clause in contract.

Despite Birmingham taking up one year option on Burkes' contract they will sell and Derby poised for £500,000 bid. Fielding being tracked by Leicester to take over from Schmiecal.

Davies and Doyle turn down new deals to play regularly elsewhere, Robinson back in fold and Derby entering bidding war for Alan Judge, Alex Baptiste and Jon Mackie.

The only thing you have said what is not bad up off the top off your head is about Davies and Doyle, Nigel has said theo will be going at the play awards, nigel has said in nearly all his interviews recently that he will be signing Forsyth and leicster will not go for fielding because he is going to Birmingham in exchange for Burke and why would qpr sell Jamie mackie and not Jon when he was doing well in the prem and now they have been relegated

Theo will only be going if someone comes in for him or unless Derby pay his contract up and release him on a free. Presently no sign of either so expect to see Theo start pre-season with the Rams.

Schmiecal expected to depart Leicester if they fail in play-offs and Pearson tracking Fielding as replacement. Any Burke deal will be straight cash no player + bid.

Baptiste, has many suitors and with palace interested may opt to join them if they go up. They will also offer significantly higher wages but Baptiste (rumoured) favours moving closer to home in Midlands.

Mackie, out of favour with Redknapp and can go in the summer.



04 May 2013 13:21:42

Charlie Austin was at bournemouths last home game sitting with eddie mitchell (owner) jed wallace signing jed wallace, Also trippier from burnley {Ed027's Note - I highly doubt that

These Bournemouth fans are becoming a little bit like Southampton fans a couple of years ago banging on about all these players they were going to sign but let's be realistic Bournemouth fans, you are a small club. much bigger clubs will be looking at Austin and Trippier, I am by no means having a go and I applaud you for gaining promotion but a little bit of realism please

I am sure someone would have seen Charlie Austin sat next to the owner in the crowd

He was photographed at Turf Moor today holding his little girl

He was at the Bournemouth game with his dad like he has a lots of other times in the past. I wouldn't read too much into it lads, he's big mates with Howe and a few of the other boys and was only visiting. His family do live in the area so sightings are normal

04 May 2013 19:06:55
What a load of rubbish, unless he has a twin brother, he was at the turf today, and if you go on the clarets website, a couple of pictures of him with his daughter, that was taken today Saturday 4th May 2013.

Some people don't half talk some rubbish, go back to your own little dreamworld

Not true. When Bournemouth last played at home Burnley were at home to Cardiff and he was photographed/shown on Sky to be sitting in the players box. Keep dreaming guys!

The post actually says "bournemouths last home game" which was over 2 weeks ago so read the original post ay!

Bournemouth last home game was 3 weeks ago so it is possible, before you lot moan about him being at the game today, maybe if you looked elsewhere from your league you'd might realise league 1 and 2 seasons are over, but that's probs too much to ask

Charlie Austin was photographed in his hospital bed following the removal of his appendix on the morning of the Cardiff game. He was shown passing on his best wishes and good luck to his team mates prior to a big game for the Clarets.

05 May 2013 08:33:10
OK, so mis-read the OP

1) what's the point of putting a point on here when it should have happened on the 20th April

2) the facts were still incorrect, Austin was recovering in hospital after having his appendix out

Once agian a load of rubbish put on here

05 May 2013 16:56:32
Not to a small club like Bournemouth



04 May 2013 11:04:03
plymouth argyle are looking into the signings of free agent Neal Trotman to bolster their defense for a promotion push next season

Isco 25m Manchester City
Edinson Cavani 50m Manchester City
Xabi Alonso 10m Liverpool
Christian Eriksen 12m Liverpool
Mario Gomez 12m Tottenham
Jao Moutinho 23m Tottenham

I think Gomez has a 35 million release clause, or Bayern value him at that. Also Isco isn't worth 25 million yet again overrated Spanish player's.

Torres wasn't worth 50m

MK Dons to announce in the near future that Karl Robinson stays for another season, Robbie Fowler made Assistant Manager, Mick Harford made Chief Scout, Ian Wright stays as Head Coach and Alan Smith put into Player/Manager of the new Under 23 team set up.

Karl Robinson has a rolling thee year contract. There's no need for any sort of announcement.

Why would the club announce that Karl Robinson is staying on as manager? He already has a contract.

Robinson has already announced that Ian Wright will stay as coach and Alan Smith will manage the Under 23 side with Paul Heald.

The only speculation is that Mick Harford may replace the departed Alex Rae as scout. Can't see Robbie Fowler coming in as Assistant Manager as he's only just started his new Property Academy business.

3 dutch people, does anyone speak Dutch at the club?

Michel Kuipers, our former Goalkeeper, and former Dutch Marine works for the club now, and his son plays in the youth team, plus Roland Bergkamp still on our books (admittedly he may be released soon though, not sure)

Most Dutch people speak better English than we do anyway. It won't be a problem.

3 dutch people, does anyone speak Dutch at the club?. really. I think Ossie Ardiles and Ricky Villa did alright at Tottenham Hotspur. think on



04 May 2013 09:12:56
Patrick Agyemang has joined Portsmouth on a two year deal after a successful loan spell last season. Other players expected to sign soon are Therry Racon, Matty Blair, Shaun Cooper, Solomon Taiwo and Charlie Sheringham

True about agyemang on portsmouth news two year deal first one for a while

Racon will not be signing as he wanted too much money.

Racon wants 4k a week so he won't be joining Pompey and Whittingham was quoted in the local paper as saying Solomon Taiwo is NOT on his list.



04 May 2013 08:48:01
Big news coming from notts county in the next few days!

And what news is that then proberly nothin

04 May 2013 15:53:48

What sort of news

Jim rodwell is leaving? Please please lol

Any hints to what that 'big' news will be? lol

Funny how you don't say what it is



04 May 2013 07:31:16
Coventry City will not be buying any player in the near future, there's suspisions regaurding the football club that sisu will try and liquidate the club, the club has not been rejected by acl, sisu just don't want to play ball, there's only one person to save this club, and that's gary hoffman and his consortium, I think irrelavent what contracts players have at the minit means nothing to us fans, because sisu will sell what they can to get there money back, and that could see the likes of murphy, bell, baker, moussa and clarke all being up for grabs, on another note I would like to see rotheram do well next season and I think they will, there stable and one to watch I reckon (good luck) back to us somebody get SISU out before its to late!!!

Thanks for the well wishes (Rotherham)

Been through similar over last few seasons so hope you pull through!

Clearly written by a Rotherham fan!



04 May 2013 08:08:03
As has been reported today middlesbroughs key summer signing will be in the shape of a loan player. This player is nick powell of man. u. Boro will later announce a deal that sees Man. you players come on loan every season over other clubs because the Manchester club are very impressed with the clubs training facilities and with the way they have reported, in detail, on josh mceacrans loan from Chelsea this season



04 May 2013 08:06:40
Southend manager Phil Brown is set to raid his old club Preston for out of contract right sided midfielder/winger Jack King

Not a chance he has another year left and has been a revelation considering he came from non league he. s a centre midfielder and can play up front he can probably play anywhere apart from where you mentioned.

King is under contract at Preston for a further 12 months. Also King only joined Preston months after Brown was sacked and was brought to Deepdale by Westley.

King is not out of contract and is not a winger. If wanted a fee will be needed.

He's not out of contract, get your facts right. Plus Grayson wants to keep him as he's versatile and has had a decent season. He plays central midfield or just behind the striker, not on the right wing!

Jack king isn't out if contract and is a vital part of graysons plans

04 May 2013 12:25:06
He's not a winger & he's not out of contract at all.

Not a winger, center forward. Phil Brown wouldn't want a player like Kingy anyway

If you didn't know as well King is a naturally a CM and not a right sided midfielder/winger, he hasn't got the pace but he is qualit at holding the ball up and allowing players to come into attacking

He's not a winger and never played under Phil Brown, all his players are long gone

Who makes this stuff up. Jack king is not out of contract! And played every game under the new manager, plus he has not been made available

More likely to be croasdale and Brandon zibaka who the club have just released. Zibaka will do well in league 2 a young striker with a good future, just wrong timing for him at pne and phil brown really rated the lad.



04 May 2013 07:56:31
Sam Sodje has asked his brother Akpo to join Pompey next season and help them get back into league 1, he is a free agent after his release from Scunthorpe.

Southampton look to be interested in Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama. Manchester United and Liverpool are also hoping to sign him too.


Stop it! Hooper maybe, but Wanyama will be aiming higher than the Saints i'm afraid!

Saints are interested, but I believe if he leaves Celtic he will go to a club in a European Competition.


I can't see saints really being that interested. It just seems that the media like the idea of Southampton becoming Celtic or something.

Really good player, I don't think the transfer fee would be a problem for us but he will want Champions league football I'm guessing (proper CL football before you start Celtic fans).

What do you mean proper champions league. Celtic got to the same stages as any english teams

Southampton sent scouts to watch him play against Motherwell the other week so it isn't a made up rumour.

Wanyama isn't that great. Never worth £10m anyway. He may look ok at the moment playing in the SPL but that's because Celtic are playing League 1 standard clubs. {Ed025's Note - he,s a very good player..

I live in Scotland and watch a lot of Celtic games. He has a lot of potential due to his age but what qualities apart from physicality does he actually have? Last game he played he was awful!

What I meant by 'proper Champ ions league football'.
You are right Celtic got through to the same stage as English clubs in the competition this year. This season was a fantastic effort from Celtic and realistically as far as they could ever expect to go in this competition. For the English clubs it was an unmitigated disaster for all of them. That is the difference.
Most seasons English clubs will be well in the mix (one of them won it last year lest you forget). Celtic will always just make up the numbers and often struggle to get through the prelims. I'm not down on Celtic at all. Just being honest and realistic.



04 May 2013 04:49:33
Norwich City defender Marc Tierney set for a move to Bolton, Norwich also set to enquire about the availability of Man City winger Scott Sinclair

Marc Tierney to Bolton? Where has that come from? I think we can do better.

In all fairness tierney is a quality lb in the championship

Tierney is good. Any Bolton fans doubting him would do well to look at our promotion highlights

04 May 2013 03:32:37
middlesbrough are looking to offload:- marvin emnes, rhys williams, stephen mcmanus, bikey, nicky bailey, and maybe scott macdonald, justin hoyte if the prices are right

Maybe macdonald? mcdonald is defientatly going! we all know mcmanus and emnes are going, but williams, bikey and hoyte are all staying, are squad is to small to get rid of all of our defenders

Why is McDonald definitely going? He has a year left. And we have a big squad, one of them may leave, Bikey may not even be offered a new contract yet.

Mogga has came out and said that emnes and mcdonald will be leaving not to long ago, we can't afford mcdonalds wages. And I will be surprised if Bikey isn't offerd a new contract, he has been quality for us

Bikey has played well granted but has made far too many stupid mistakes. Mogga didn't say McDonald and Emnes will be going. In fact he said Emnes will be a crucial player next season. And who will pay McDonald's wages for such a mediocre player?



04 May 2013 03:11:41
David Nugent is already on 20k a week at norwich and has agreed the same wages but wants a 5 year deal to finalise a move aross to norwich. I spoke to his agent yesterday and he said that Cardiff were also interest in David.

£20k a week!

I heard Leicester were reporting him under the trade descriptions act for impersonating a striker this season.

Can only see Nugent going down a league for one final payday. maybe back to PNE

You will never ever see David Nugent in a Norwich shirt. The fans hate him. No chance. Stop wasting your time pal.



04 May 2013 02:30:19
Rotherham are poised to make a 100k bid for Burton striker Calvin Zola. Evans hasn't made his admiration of the big forward a secret & his unbelievable performance against Bradford this week has persuaded the millers' gaffer to make a bid {Ed034's Note - you have added around twenty rumours, one after another, all about different players Rotherham are signing. I'm not adding them all, but if you put them on one post, I'll add that



04 May 2013 01:50:00
Southampton FC transfer targets include RCD Espanyol pair Hector Moreno (for around £7million), Joan Verdu (Free Transfer) & PSV Eindhoven player Jermain Lens (for around £8million). Cover for both full backs Clyne & Shaw also high on the agenda.

Managers always like to link up with old players & we were linked with a bid in the summer for Jermain Lens, so both believable. Wouldn't mind Scott Sinclair & Jermain Lens' PSV team mate Tim Matavz though. Cover for Clyne & Shaw is definitely needed. Fox although good going forward lacks concentration at the back. Richardson prob move to a league one or championship club.



04 May 2013 01:00:37

Portsmouth & Plymouth are interested in Rene Howe but is set to choose Portsmouth over Plymouth

Really is that going to happen where did you hear this

He's doing it for love, not wages then?

I'd chose Plymouth, nicer area, better stadium and more of a chance of escaping league 2.

My mate who is a steward at Fratton park told me about it and I thought i'd post it

Plymouth have nice ground but one stand proper ugly and I feel Portsmouth have a better chance going up they're going to have a strong squad
