Peter Odemwingie and Youssouf Mulumbu are set to leave West Brom as they want to play for bigger clubs, spurs will compete with newcastle for the signing of mulumbu whilst teams like arsenal and udinese will attempt to sign odemwingie.... RELIABLE SOURCES.................Also the baggies will sign former newcastle midfielder danny guthrie on a free and will also try and tempt England goalkeeper Rob Green to the Hawthorns as QPR prepare a 5m bid for Ben Foster BUT foster has said he wants to stay in the midlands which might tempt him to sign for WBA rather than QPR......(RELIABLE SOURCE).....more Rumours coming soon(14)(25)Guthrie is going to villaIs this the west brom who aint got a managerDan Ashworth deals with transfers, we don't need a manager to operate in the transfer market

Gennaro Gattuso - AC Milan - Free
Francisco Sandaza - St Johnstone - Free
Ian Black - Hearts - Free
Andrew Driver - Hearts - 1.5 Million
David Goodwillie - Blackburn - 2 Million(10)(71) 

Do you think Hearts will sell Rangers anyone again and do you really think they will have even £1 to spend on playersDont make me laugh! dreamers!Rangers shouldn't be allowed to sign anyone until they've paid all there debts off!

Byars38625DreamerHa ha ha ha ha haTheir flat broke!You clearly don't get it - you have no money - your creditors won't accept a CVA that sees them short changed just so you can buy players - it simply will not happen - you are now a selling club until you have paid your debts

dave artell to sign for burton Albion tomorrow(3)(7)Wrong! Try Zander Diamond


04 Jun 2012 21:36:26
Danny pilkington brother of ex Huddersfield winger Antony is set to sign for Huddersfield. He is currently playing for York city.(4)(28)Why post nonsense.He wasn't a regular in the York team last season and hardly made the bench.


04 Jun 2012 21:35:17
Rivaldos agent still trying to persuade Powell that he can bring experience to Charlton - Powell will turn him down for the second time for sure!(8)(21) 

His is actually true but i hope it doesnt happenAs a charlton fan i would'nt mind this. i think he will score some crucial goals for us.I don't know why people say they don't want him, he's a footballing legend, just because he's not young anymore, does that mean you would say no to Thierry Henry, or Del Piero then?.....But Rivaldo is slow and 40?!He's three years older than Del Pierro and six years older than Henri, so yes I would say no unless he wanted to play for nothing!Brad freidal is 41 end of. What be a quality signingWhat a ridiculous point. Friedel is a goalkeeper and doesn't need to run around.The fact we dont want him is due to him probably wanting atleast 50k a week for someone wholl only last 60 minsYes he is a legend, so is Pele but would we sign him no, he's way past it.It's not a ridiculous point, the principal is the same, they are both old but brad freidal can still do it, goalkeeper or not he still has to dive and run etc"It's not a ridiculous point"

Yes it is, you cannot compare a central midfielder who may run 12 miles during a game with a goal keeper who may run a mile. Why do you think that goal keepers have longer careers?It really was a ridiculous point - goalkeepers can keep playing longer than outfield players regardless if they have to dive. Do you know anything about football?I can honestly say hand on heart I'd love pele in the team, he might be 60 odd or something but he is the best ever playerIts not a ridiculous point! You cant compare the work load, because there are strikers that are close to 40, midfielders, defenders and goalkeepers, the fact is he still has to run and dive around and jump etc for a 40 year old man is impressiveIt really, really was a ridiculous point - I laughed and then had to show my wife and then she laughed. Thank you for a good giggle

Burnley boss Eddie Howe has targeted Oliver Norwood,Jason Shackell and Stephen Dobbie has his main targets this summer(15)(17)Eddie howe said hes never been interested in Jason Shackell so why does everyone keep on saying it.Especially with derby put their asking price at 5 million because they only have one decent centre back with their captian out for a season so they wouldnt let him go would they.Dobbie will join Blackpool if they can pay the 1M asking Price and if not then Burnley and Birmingham will sign him"and if not then Burnley and Birmingham will sign him"

ohhh right ... do they get half each? shotgun his right foot.They are talking to Brett Pitman - fee agreed with Bristol City


04 Jun 2012 21:26:41
Berbatov was at loftus road today,100% fact(11)(63)Wonder what he is doing there he isn't signing for us


04 Jun 2012 21:26:29
Cheltenham midfielder Marlon Pack being lined up by league 1 new boy Swindon Town. Cheltenham will be offered players plus cash, the midfielder is keen to make the switch.(12)(12)Can hit the odd free kick but has the pace of a slug, nowhere near the class needed at SwindonPeople only link him to us because of his freindship with Ritchie. Swindon will not be signing Pack. They will sign Andy Williams on the 1st of July (Free agent on this date) and they are still in for O'Kane...apart from that PDC is being pretty tight lipped over his targets.Haha pace of a slug - you blatantly havent watched him play.

Marlon has also stated he wants to be at Cheltenham next season, and this was AFTER the play-off finalGonna be a top top player , still has a lt to learn and who better to learn that from than Di CanioMarlon Pack has confirmed that he will be staying at Cheltenham Town next season despite interest from Championship and League One clubs.Pack is out of Swindons price range he will go to Birmingham or maybe Peteborough who can offer guaranteed Championship football.Out of Swindon's price range?? what about what the player wants?Marlons agent is speaking swindon who wanna do a cash plus player deal , but Bristol city are also interestedWho needs pace when you have the vision and cant keep the ball moving like pack , the ball can move faster than any playerPack is not going to Swindon, he has stated quite clearly that he wants to be at Cheltenham next season, and if he were to go he could definitely do better than Swindon. How can you say that there is no one better to learn from than PDC when he already has MY?

Watford set to sign tricky winger Mustapha Carayol from Bristol Rovers for £600k. Gavin Massey and Adam Thompson to movenine other direction on season long loans. Deal to be completed on Wednesday.

Other news, ex Bristol city and Motherwell striker david Clarkson set to join Bristol Rovers, as is central midfielder Kari Arison, previously at Plymouth and Aberdeen.

Leicester boys Tom Parkes and Cian Bolger have agreed terms to rejoin on season long loans, deal finalised late Friday night .

Byron Anthony agreed 2 year deal with Yeovil, craig Stanley to rejoin Paul buckle at torquay and anyinsah set to join orient on a free.(4)(15)Buckle is at LutonBuckle isn't even at torquay!Typo... All true though. Watch this spaceWhat the he'll Byron Anthony is useless and kari arnarson no way would he join a league 2 clubSo why has he joined Hereford utd then !!Rovers fans thought andy Williams and Dom blizzard were both useless, and both have proved themselves at Yeovil.

As for muzzy, deal should me completed by Thursday pm my sources inform me.Mcghee had kari arnarson at aberdeen and he said he was excited to join back up with his old bossWatford won't spend that sort of money on one player, so think againWhy wouldn't Watford spend 600k on a player? We have the money for that easily!Seriously Byron Anthony is useless an if Yeovil make signings like him then league 2 is what will be destined toArnarson only joined Aberdeen at the start of last season,Mcghee had left Aberdeen months before that,SO FAIL.

Reading have turned their backs on carlos sanchez and mariappa after they were outpriced for the pair
MrRfc(8)(25)MrRfc, you've been saying for the last week that we've got Mariapa and Sanchez signed up and now all of a sudden, you're following the crowd saying we wont get either. Your sources are either full of it, or you are! AProperReadingFanThat was some person using my name
real MrRfc {Ed001's Note - and his IP has been blocked.}Probs a watford fan upset we are buying there best player. also the same fans who believe a bid has been rejected while the club just want them to believe they tried to keep him
MrRfcThanks Ed
MrRfcMrRfc if you actually had proper sources other than Readings tea lady or something you'd know that even the Watford paper are saying Mariappa is likely to join and that the 'rejection' is just to calm things with the fans.

Whats more, apparently the Sanchez deal is going smoothly, and that there are no such reports of him wanting 40 grand a week.But i told everyone about the mariappa and sanchez deal a long while ago. they will happen a fee has been a mariappa and he will have a medical when he returns from international dity
MrRfcSorry about that MrRfc, didn't realise someone had used your name, I have to say your rumours and news have impressed me so far, keep blogging mate.


04 Jun 2012 21:49:17
Watford have offered Reading £850,000 for striker Simon Church.(25)(17)Ha!! I'm sure the silent Watford fans at vicarage road would like him as a signing!!Quality player, honestly. so how much are we paying you to take him, cheers for mariappa
MrRfc850k? why waste that money when we still have iwelumo?Yes because the atmosphere at Reading really blows you away.... I've been seeing the stuff on here about Mapps for a few weeks now and I honestly don't know where Reading fans are getting their info from. I happen to know that Watford have received bids from Reading and ALL of them have been knocked back. So good luck to Aidy if you get him but I wouldn't be so confident if I were you! You'll find why nearer the weekend. Ta ta.Church would be a good signing for them as both are going nowhereMariappa will go to a bigger club. Not one like Reading who will be going straight back downAll sources, apart from the biased Watford fan who once worked for the local Watford rag but now works in Dubai, say that a fee was agreed weeks ago the only hold up is that Mariappa is away on international duty. He is due to play this Friday for Jamaica so we won't have any movement on this one till next week at the earliest.Been talking to a Watford season ticket holder who seems convinced he is going to Reading....

Michael Owen set to have talks with Southampton. A partnership with rickie lambert could ensure the saints safety in next years assault of the premiership!(10)(56)"Michael Owen set to have talks with Southampton. A partnership with rickie lambert could ensure the saints safety in next years assault of the premiership!"

Your defence needs strengthening if you want to survive.Not gunna happenThe man's fiinished, why dont people just accept it.
Form a partnership with Lambert? Ricky plays a whole season so that's never going to happen is it.Nahhh it would assure that Southampton pay Owen a ridiculous amount of money for sitting at home injured and Lambert isnt good enough for the Prem, too slow.Please don't be true!I do believe Southampton will be fine next season, but I cant see them going for Owen at all.Can't see this happening,love it to though
if Owen is finally injury free.Lambert isn't good enough for prem to slow, haha don't make me laugh just what everyone said about holt and lambert is better than holt^to answer that grant holt peter crouch yakubu have done alright with no paceI agree with other post we need more cover in defenceHe's quicker and more versatile than Grant Holt and he did ok!

We're used to people slating Ricky for being a big Centre Forward. People said he couldn't cut it in the championship, now the premiership. Player of the season in the championship is awarded that for a reason, regardless of speed or anything else, he showed the most quality in the whole of the championship last year and he will be just fine. Our problem will be stopping goals going in at the back, and making sure we don't get reliant on Ricky because he is THAT GOOD.Rickie Lambert is faster than Grant HoltLambert to slow??? He isnt that bad, but... Matt le tis slow player, amazing playerOwen no thanks to injury proneDont need owen we do need some more pace up front and i think saints should sign a new cb and rb and jack butland but thats almost a done dealI love all the know it alls making judgments on how saints will do or if Rickie Lambert can play at that level (I also suspect these comments come from arrogant fans of premier league teams that did not see Saints play in the championship last season). The beauty of Ricky lamberts game is that he is great in the air, good touch and a one of the hardest shots in the football league - he doesn't need to be fast.


04 Jun 2012 21:45:03
Aides mcgeady looks like he could be swapping russia for England as his agent Andre wasicv said mcgeady wants to "be reunited with Martin oneil" talks have already begun I understand as Aiden wants to go into the euros with republic of Ireland with the deal done. Also Sunderland have been told by man city that it's either 10 million or a loans deal that will get Adam Johnson. Apart from that a couple of routers about signing abonghalhor or however you spell it but that looks doubtfull(19)(12)Would be great for sunderland if we got all three of them, a;ll quality attacking playersMcGeady and Oneill are both from the republic of ireland {Ed007's Note - McGeady is Scottish and O'Neill is from Derry in NI.}McGeady is a republic of ireland international

To clear up Reading's new ownership:

Anton Zingarevich is worth £650m.

His father, although not listed as a Director, did have to pass the FAPPT, as confirmed by Chris Samuelson, he may invest at a later date.

Boris Zingarevich's personal wealth as proved to Kroll (Kroll performed the financial assessments for the Premier League) is £4.1b

Confirmation of Boris Zingarevich's involvement comes from Chris Samuelson in a Daily Mail interview.

Boris Zingarevich's wealth you can choose not to trust but it comes from a very reliable source on.

Pea(14)(10)No-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur^speak for yourselfNo-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur

And you 'seem' not to know the difference between the clubs view point and a few high school kids going a bit OTT on a rumours web siteYikes, if this is true its got to be putting a bit of a dampener on the whole 'Reading to buy everyone' thing from the Reading fans. Still, being bought by a playboy son of a billionaire, whats the worst that could come of that situation eh? Happened to Pompey and they turned out just fine. Oh, hold on.....Suggest you wait to see how much of their "wealth" they are willing to commit to RFC.
I suspect you will find it is nowhere near what you expect."No-ones bothered about Readings ownership except Reading. The club seem to have delusions of grandeur"

If thats the case go and find something else to read/comment on. If your not interested why read it, just walk away and keep quiet.If your not bothered by it then why did you read it?They are already upgrading the academy this year to the highest level then if we stay up the plans to build the expansion to the stadium begin, if that + not having to sell our best players is all we get out of this deal for the next few years ill be happyEveryone has a right to read and comment on what post they choose. This just confirms that Reading are not "Billionaires" at all.Not a lot of premier league owners are billionaires though. Fulham's, Stoke's, Villa's, West Broms, Norwich's and Swansea's owners who were all midtable last season are not owned by billionaires. Even Dave Whelan who's worth around 200m has kept wigan in the premier league. Money isnt everything to how good you are. Look at Leicester, spent millions and got midtable in the championshipThe money isn't going all on players. We will continue to act in the Reading way which is right player right price. A lot of money will be put into improving facilities. What this money means is that Reading won't have to seek their best players every season because we don't want to be in debt like 90% of football teams. We now have financial security and yes whilst people may say "Well look at Portsmouth" Portsmouth's owners were not people who have a connection with the area and the club like Anton does.

Watford set to sign tricky winger Mustapha Carayol from Bristol Rovers for £600k. Gavin Massey and Adam Thompson to movenine other direction on season long loans. Deal to be completed on Wednesday.

Other news, ex Bristol city and Motherwell striker david Clarkson set to join Bristol Rovers, as is central midfielder Kari Arison, previously at Plymouth and Aberdeen.

Leicester boys Tom(2)(11)This isn't true as why would clarkson want to come here, and don't think we will sell muzzy that easilyThat easily? 600k is probably more than we'll actually get for him. Think people are forgetting he's only got a year left on his deal and has only really had 6 consistent months of quality.Clarkson isn't spoiled for choice. A failed championship player, worked with McGhee previously, and he likes that rovers have a great history of producing great strikers. Deal should be completed by Thursday pm according to sources very close to the player


04 Jun 2012 21:09:14
vicente to leave bhafc(11)(14)


04 Jun 2012 21:08:20
Paul Lambert to make Jordan Rhodes and Michael Owen his first signings of his Villa tenure.(10)(7)Rhodes maybe, but if he signs owen he will be looking for a new job next season.


04 Jun 2012 20:38:55
Hi Ed- everyone has been talking about Hulk as a chelsea player before he has even signed or we have heard about any deal... Has Hulk agreed a deal with chelsea and if so what is it and when we it be confirmed?
Thanks {Ed001's Note - I don't believe it has been agreed, but they have held talks and it is pretty much certain he will join them.}(7)(6)


04 Jun 2012 21:07:42
west ham will sign sunderland trio kieran richardson ahmed elmohamady and george mccartney. also exiting the wearside club is ryan noble who will join sheffield wednesday for a nominal fee. gyan will sign a permanent deal with al anin for a fee of 7.8m. stephane sessegnon will join french side psg for 14m. Sunderland will sign carlos cuellar (free transfer), steven fletcher (8m), gabriel agbonlahorr(4m), adam johnson (loan), diame (free)) nicky shorey (free) and matt phillips (3m)(12)(28)Phillips not leaving Blackpool FC this summer he has told me.You wont get fletcher for 8 million try 12 million wolves dont have to sell.Let's be realistic here, will Fletcher want to play CHAMPIONSHIP football next season! He will move to prem, maybe not necessarily to Sunderland though.Gabby will never leave the villa so think you should stay off the crack pipe,and for 4m ? what a total nutter you really are !!!I thought nobody won the euromillions on friday, I guess I was wrong obviously one of the west ham owners did.12m for fletcher?? he isn't that good, you got relegated and expect to get 12m for him your having a laugh, it will be 8m tops if your luckyI dont know why everyone is doubting flecthers loyalty he has been saying on twitter how much he wants to stayRelegated or not Fletcher won't be leaving for less than £10m. We paid £7m for him have no debt and no player clauses (like the Lescott agreement to Everton) so if he can score 10+ league goals three seasons in a row for rubbish teams like Burnley and I hate to admit it but Wolves twice then if you bid £8m I think Moxey will fall off his chair laughing, unless you're offering £8m + Carlton Cole, Mark Noble and Jack Collison?

BobbybuffonFletcher 22 league goals in 41 games thats up there with the best in the premier league also in a side thats battled against relegation for 2 seasons, so yes worth every penny of 12 million.Get it in to your head wolves want 10+ for fletch thats if mr moxey is being nice we can play hard ball with any team we wantWill want to make a profit on gyan so will not accept less than 10m sess will cost 17m+ will never pay over 8m for fletcher agbonlahor only scored 5 goals last year and single figures the season before so what makes you think he is worth more than 4m phillips would move to the prem like a shotDiane will not join Sunderland as there are Big clubs after him in England and SpainBecause he is a striker, not a wingerCity will NOT loan Johnson - it's a cash deal or nothing - City will listen to offers above £12 million for him.


04 Jun 2012 21:03:31

04 Jun 2012 20:52:37
Bristol city are interested in fran sandanza(10)(7)Not sure why. He wasn't even good enough for League One with Brighton.


04 Jun 2012 20:45:52
Burnley are interested in Steven Davies to replace Jay Rodriguez(8)(8)You will be getting a bargain his asking price is only 1.2 million and you will still have 5.8 million and Davies scored 12 goals in 23 games thats 1 in 2.


04 Jun 2012 20:44:51
Derby will sign Jacobs and Pearce next week.(14)(7)People have been saying the same thing over the last 3/4 weeks, when will be the actually week we sign someone?


04 Jun 2012 20:34:38
Crawley town will make a bid for shaun cooper he will be out of contract next season and is looking at his options also Sean o Driscoll rates him highly(7)(3)Crawley also interested in Partington on the advice of ex team mate Cummings. Don't think Groves wants to let him move without a fee.


04 Jun 2012 20:27:53
any rumours for huddersfield town would apprciate it if these people had acctually sgned(6)(7)If they have actually signed, they aren't rumours..... ;)Lafferty sighing from rangers - £ 550 000


04 Jun 2012 20:24:59
It is believed that Liverpool are
planning to make a bid around the fee
of 10 million of Fulham's Clint
Dempsey as Brendan Rodgers wants
to add to his strike force as Liverpool
failed to score goals last season.
Rodgers would also like to bring in last
years loanee, Swansea player
Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson, snatching the
deal away from Swansea.(23)(17)Do that not break the spirit, if not the letter of liverpools deal,not to go afder swanse players ?Gylfi Sigydsson is not a Swansea player, he was only on loan to Swansea. So any deal for Gylfi will be between Liverpool and the current club that owns him which i believe is HoffenheimHe was on loan at Swansea from hoffenhiem,therefore contracted to hoffenhiem,so there is no breaking of the deal as he is not their player^^^ he is not a swansea player yet!Rubbish, if any other club wanted Gylfi he could go so why not Liverpool.He was not and is not a Swans player!Yeah but liverpool can still sign sigurdsson as he is not a swansea player yet!If Dempsey leaves Fulham it will be for Champions League - he has said so himself.Hmmm sigurdsson plays for hoffenheim :S whats your point?


04 Jun 2012 20:18:43
Bournemouth have had a £500,000 bid for Oxford's Peter Leven turned down.(2)(20)Joking, useless, not worth 100k.How much? Highly unlikely and would much prefer Bostwick to be the midfield enforcer we need to complete the jigsaw.Oxford could not afford to turn down 500k!! What nonsense. There si a good chance Leven will be leaving but not for that amounnt. 150k - 200k will see him leave.I think Bournemouth are after a higher standard of player and if this was true oxford would not reject half a million for any of their playersWould be a very good sighning for us if true,but not for 500k,more likely 150-200k tops


04 Jun 2012 20:15:11
Oxford are set to sign AFC Bournemouth's Wes Thomas having fallen out of favour.(5)(12)Your welcome to him really went down hill in second half of season couldent hit a barn doorCould be a possibility. With the recent addition of Mcquiod and Grabban we have good options up front. Completely lost his confidence to hit the net towards the end of the season but was unstoppable earlier on. Would like to see him stay but with Tubbs and Sheringham also pushing for a start his chances may be limited.I'll pack his bags and drive him over if that helps, big time charlie who couldn't hit a cows backside, car parks no problem.Swap for leven?Shame his touch had gone, work ethic and effort is second to none, not sure if he should go as i believe its a confidence thing. Bradbury tried to play him with Tubbs and it did'nt work, maybe we could give him some gamtime till Jan and then see!!Him and Tubbs are too similar a player and in my opinion wes is probably the better.


04 Jun 2012 19:54:12
Conor Sammon seen at Turf Moor this
morning in talks with Eddie Howe about
a £600k move ... wants 1st team football(16)(10)


04 Jun 2012 19:49:17
I would doubt that. He stated he wanted to play League 1 football.(2)(9)


04 Jun 2012 19:41:46
Bradford want Arsenal academy player Antony Jefferey on a season long loan deal. The pacey winger is what Parkinson is after. Jefferey may not be the only youngster coming on loan from Arsenal. PP used to work at Arsenal and has contacts with them. Barnet are also after Jefferey as it is more local to him but his preferred choice is Bradford.(3)(6)Jemaine Johnson is set to sign for Bradford City this week also Robbie Blake has agreed to sign for us too once he gets off his holidaysRobbie blake is not on his holidays.he was in the casino down the road at the weekend..fact. although would be a great signing for us.


04 Jun 2012 19:32:52
Alistair Slowe in potential move to the Saints. Ex-Yeovil play maker is high on the wanted list of many clubs, but Adkins has expressed a desire to sign talented winger. Slowe is interested in the Saints.(3)(16)Im a massive saints fan, and i know this isnt true. southampton have stated there desire to only sign players with expierence for the new season.So why has he joined Hereford utd then !!!What is it with alistair slowe? he's st! If he couldnt get a game at yeovil, he wont get a game at southampton. YTFC fan


04 Jun 2012 19:20:12
Rafael Benitez could be a shock replacement for Brendan Rodgers at Swansea.

The Spaniard is keen to get back into the Premiership, and is interested in a move to South Wales.

Meanwhile, Lee Clark could be set to take up the hot-seat at Carrow Road.(18)(26)Benitez wants money,cant see this deal going ahead....more chance of getting bruceAll you have done is state newspaper rumours, Lee Clark is not on Norwich City's radar, read the chairman's statement he is looking for a manager who has already managed at the top level, either in premiership or one of Europe's top leagues


04 Jun 2012 19:09:04
Southampton believed to be preparing a bid for young, English centre back Ben Turner of Cardiff City.(17)(16)Hope so. Would be a top signing.Doubt he would leave Cardiff

From a cardiff fanIm a cov fan and trust me this man will play for england one dayThis is an interesting one sees realistic he is only 23/24 has been consistant in the league and is one of the best in the league in his position. He would get into starting 11 defo. Good luck Southamption from cardiffSource? does seem realisticThis sounds a positive move for saints as we do need to strenthen are defenceWould be a regularly big price tag since he only signed last season. I'd say around 3-4 million, if the deal went through and if he wanted to leave. I agree with the comment above that he will be playing for England soon. (Cardiff fan)Good moveWould be a great signing if we could get him.I think this move is possible, but he will be expensive due to his contract and his potential I think southamption will look for prem proven over turner for now


04 Jun 2012 18:57:57
Davies of Barnsley to local rivals Owls in straight swap for winger Mike Jones and Left back Danny Jones (no relation)(3)(25)Why would Barnsley let the only senior
striker on the books go to another
championship club it,s a no go mateWhy would Barnsley want another left back when we have 3Stop posting rubbish.Davies having a medical at tranmere after the bank holiday ( i'm not a tranmere fan by the way)The only medical davis will be having is the
one prior to pre season training at oakwellDavies declared his loyalty to barnsley the other week saying that he promises he will play a better season for barnsley next season

Ex Bournemouth striker Michael Symes has agreed personal terms with Shrewsbury Town and will be announced in the coming weeks. The 28 year former Shrews striker will replace the outgoing James Collins.(11)(7)Can remember gus poyt saying he nearly killed our keeper when afcb drew 1-1 a with dean he like to put his weight aboutGT does not like signing ex this is a no no..I heard Swindon were also in for him. Either way I wish him luck, he always threatened to be a good striker for us but for whatever reason it didn't quite work out for him hereNot a chance Symes will return it would be a backward step for ShrewsburyWhat about Asa Hall?Think Turner could really get the best out of Symes if he was here and kept fit. Can't quite see this deal taking place though.Symes is on his way to orient and collins rotherhamJames Collins has league 1 + championship. Why go to RotherhamCollins isn't going to Rotherham. Wishful thinking, I'm afraid.

Mido is on Teesside I saw him at Teesside park retail today he looks very unfit and he has a home in the area so I don't think we can read too much into other rumours.(7)(4)

Terry Dicon linked to Preston North End.
Has previously worked with Westley before and has been approached as a possible option to replace outgoing Hume(3)(8)Who ??? And hume isnt leaving i know this for a fact as he lives near meShould this be terry dixon not diconHume is not leavingHume is definately staying, stop making things up that are clearly wrongDixon isn't even Conference standard, no chance of this happeningHume isnt leaving......I know this for a fact......."AS HE LIVES NEAR ME"....classic, doesnt get any better than this comment as to why there are only 9,000 PNE fans left......Supidity!!Hume is not leaving? Oh yes he is!He's going back to his beloved Tranmere!Hume isn't leaving, just look on hid twitter account!I expect to see Hume play for Tranmere before his career is out, but there's no way they could afford him on his current PNE deal, which has two years to run.

Lets face it, if Ronnie Moore had any kind of budget, he would have been able to prevent both his captain and Player of the year switching to Deepdale.Lets face it, if it wasnt for Ronnie Moore Trameres Captain and player of the season would be in League 2....they were that poor. I bet Ronnie has his eye on some quality Bosmans, Free's & loans to get the team to the top half of League 1......Not 15th like some clubsHa 'his beloved Tranmere', thanks for that, I needed a good laugh

Michael Owen and Owen Hargreaves are to be offered one year contracts at Brighton. Arron McClean will have talks with Gus and Chairman when Poyet returns at the Weekend from Uruquay. The bad news is three clubs, Reading, Fulham and Aston villa are pursuing Bridcutt...£2.5 million has been put to the club!(5)(29)1. owen has said he wont join championship side prob off usa
2. hargeaves has hardly played in 7 years and will retireUtter rubbish,owen already stated he will only play in premierThis fool was comming out with this rumour last year lolJust plain daft if you think Owen or Hargereaves are Brighton bound although Bridcutt could well be on his way as Gus never stands in the way of a player progressing his career. He wont go cheap though - £3m with add-ons seems likely for a player Chelsea let go for nothingAnd as I said offers are being put to them! Hargreaves has never said he I retiring at the moment unless u have a hotline to him. Don't forget Bloom and Owen are very good friends so maybe a one year deal will suit him before he goes to the U S.Bridcutt? no way are we in for him, just b/c he was born in reading he gets linked to us?Neither of those would go to a championship team realistically. I like Brighton, a good club, great fans and a nice new ground but they wouldnt sign for you unless you got promotedOwen will probably join Stoke, Hargreaves will probably go to a foreign club, maybe in the US or Canada. If any club will sign Bridcutt, it would be Norwich, with their track record of raiding Brighton each season !I wish these two donkeys somewhere else what we need are thoroughbreds.

Reading have made an improved offer for Björn Sigurdarson, but still not willing to meet 3m asking price
MrRfc(11)(5)We should just pay Lillestrom what they want. He looks a cracking playerYep but same old Hammond we never pay over the odds, even if we have the money :). 3m for unproven prem player is hefty but these are the prices we will have to pay now

Diakete has signed for QPR according to the the offical nancy website.. great singing(15)(3)Great news if he continues to improve like he was we have a world class player and with Ale coming back from injury looking goodHe has got a cracking voice!I've checked there site and nothing on there about itYou,ve got more chance of signing Holt from Norwich than Jaime Mackie from us.I have seen it, i am a bit upset with that but at least we are signing peopleSamba Diakite's twitter says he's signed.Why u upset samba diakite is a great player. Remember the last half of the season? Diakite was r best player . Great news, brilliant signing and a coup at £3MGood signing well done sparky & coThis isnt true. i just checked the AS Nancy website and they have nothing said about Diakite although the deal is close. Part of his loan contract to QPR was that if they stay up, they will have first choice in signing himI am upset because his runs are pointless the majority of the time and he was one of the worst players towards the end of the seasonPerson above obviously doesnt know what they're talking about.... players who make runs and go on dribbles change the game!I know people who make runs are gamechangers but Diakite is not, the ball always seems to be 2-3 feet ahead of him and he runs into the wrong places


04 Jun 2012 17:40:49
Oldham Athletic have offered a deal to out-of-contract Aldershot keeper Jamie Young. Young has been on Oldham's radar for a while, as current #1 Alex Cisak is wanted by a number of Championship clubs, and out-of-contract understudy Dean Bouzanis is understood to be considering offers elsewhere with the guarantee of first team football.(1)(6)If Cisak goes then Bouzanis will be the number 1 keeper. Payed a minimal fee for Cisak so 350K will be a good deal.Well...Jamie Young. 26yr old, 5'11" Australian-born England U-20 international of Sri Lankan/Scottish descent.
At least it sounds like he's a character.?But around 30% of the 350k goes to Accy Stanley

Charlton Transfers:

Antonio (Reading)
Baldock (Loan with view of Permanent) [West Ham]
Andrews (Free Agent)
Coutts (If Andrews bid fails) [Preston]
Waghorn (Leicester)
Maguire (Sheffield United)
Quinn (If Antonio bid fails) [Sheff United]

2 players from a relegated top German side may also join(5)(22)Antonio is going to WednesdayAntonio has stated his wish to join Shef Weds on a full transfer once the clubs announce they have agreed a fee (I think we are close to selling him). He has family just outside Sheffild and has become best mates with wensdays liam palmerso happy to move northHas he put pen to paper for Wednesday thenHe's actually stated his wish to push on and make a claim for a starting roll in the premiership with Reading (check the official site)It's true he has said the right things about fighting for a place but he's prob 4th choice in his position and there's a player limit for premiership squads. He's on his way or he's out on loan despite making the right noises. All part of smoothing the way ti the destination he wants not where the club might push him. Mark my words hell end up in Sheffield sooner or later. It's just about the feeLet's be honest this isn't anything against Wednesday because it happens to charlton too, but players say they wish to sign all the time if they have a successful loan period and 1 time out of 10 they sign he'll go where he gets the most money and playing time and where he can play in the best team e.g if reading sell him and us, you and Swansea offer deals he'll 9 times out of 10 pick Swansea or the higher division teamIll be surprised if antonio gets in our 25. expect him to go to Shef Weds
MrRfcStill waiting for wednesday to come in with a decent offer, if they continue to drag their heels he will be off somewhere else.Coutts isnt going! charlton fan!Waghorn does not score enough goals!


04 Jun 2012 17:36:25
Charlton are favourites to sign Keith Andrews after the Euros. Chris Powell will also attempt to gain the signiture of sean wright phillips, this will most likely be a loan move for sean to try and find form.(4)(18)Charlton do not take long term loans, for Gods sake. If you were a Charlton supporter you'd know that.Charlton must be signing
150 new players for the
next season
must have millions to
pay the wagesWhat form,built a reputation on a name,been a dud everywhere.Mate its Shaun not Sean, if your going to make up rubbish at least spell it right.Hope its true heard celtic were looking,his agent must be good cause he is guff.

Eden Hazard: Chelsea complete transfer of Lille midfielder

Chelsea have completed a deal to sign midfielder Eden Hazard from French club Lille.
The Belgium international, 21, has agreed personal terms and passed a medical with the Champions League winners.
"He will join the club in July when the players return for pre-season training," a Chelsea statement read.
Hazard said: "I'm delighted to finally arrive here, it's a wonderful club and I can't wait to get started."(23)(7)


04 Jun 2012 17:29:03
Christian Jolley is a target for Reading FC as they were looking at him throughout last season. The want to build on Jolley and McDermott believes that he could be good back up for RFC's wingers. AFC Wimbledon are reported to have told Reading that they want £250k for the young and talented winger.

The Football 411(7)(7)Muist be a real Premier prospect for £250k!!
(Oxlade-Chamberlin cost £12m-says it all!)If we sign this fella he must be one for the future. I cant see him getting anywhere near the first teamGood player, lots of pace, villa scouts watched him this year, be sad if he leavesJolley is fit, strong and has plenty of pace, he will give 100% McDermott will improve him...and if he gets the opportunity he will score more goals than Oxlade-Chamberlin.


04 Jun 2012 17:20:06
Now Malky Mackay has committed his future to Cardiff there will be a statement showing the intent of Mr.Tan and the club to get promoted. Mackay will have a large transfer budget (by championship standards) and his targets are:

Bjorn Sigurdson
Ricardo Fuller
Connor Wickham (loan)
Giovanni Dos Santos
Craig Bellamy (depending on the role Brendan Rodgers plans on using him)
Vladamir Weiss (loan)
Fabio (loan)

Players he is looking to move on are:
Gerrard(20)(33)Can Cardiff afford the £3.5 million Lillestrom want for Sigardursson?Thought he was pulling the plug due to your not wanting to change to playing in redMankey committed? He doesn't know the meaning of the word.Dream on,lolWell they put in an official bid of £5.5 for jay. Rodriguz

I'd love the City to get all of the above names but in reality we'd probably get 3 of them at best (due to other clubs wanting them). Personally i'd like to see B.Sigurdson, Connor wickahm and G.Dos Santos....Also Bellamy is always welcome back, if he decides to return!Parkin is off to Yeovil. Piece of Cake !! {Ed025's Note - nice one..Norwich fan here. Hope malky doe's stay he is a fine man and would be welcome back to NCFC any time. But in this world of money orientated decisions nice to have a man stand by his word. Good luck Cardiff you deserve to be playing at Carrow Road with Malky as your boss and in the Premiership"Good luck Cardiff you deserve to be playing at Carrow Road with Malky as your boss and in the Premiership"

I have nothing against cardiff or mackay but they are where they deserve to be, until they get promoted that's the championship.It looks like cardiff could will sign sigardurson on a 3year deal with a £3mil+ add onns....Glad parkin is in his way out, nice guy but not a champioship player!We'll get promoted this year hopefully we won't bottle it againDoes cardiff have the money for these transfers? Hell yes!
Yes the plans for the change for colour have been put on the back burner for a season, they will look at it again next season as after the inital up roar it has turned out that 75% of fans are in favor of the change!
An offical statement was made by the BILLIONAIRE owner that they are still fully committed to next season and the future of CCFC! they ain't going no where! and as said in another post an offical bid of £5.5M was in place for j rod!Official Rebrand statement today!!! We will be in Red at home next season but with it comes huge investment including new training ground , all historical debts cleared and the VT and TG's investment being turned into equity in shares. Cardiff City FC can now move forward debt free!!!! (and with a pretty handsome war chest!!)


04 Jun 2012 17:07:15
Jermaine Easter, andy dorman, David wright, Owen garvan, and Kagisho digkagoi have all been told they are surplus to requirements at Palace and will not feature next season, variety of reasons, some squad disruption, some poor performances.

Jamie Mackie who is thought to be on his way from QPR is a target for Paul Jewell at Ipswich.He's tested the water with a 1.5 million bid(5)(23)Why would a first team regular be on his way out especially as he has just signed a contract extension, not happening at all and if he were to be going 1.5 mill is a jokeBiggest load of rubbish I've ever heard. QPR turned everton and west ham away, no way is he going to Ipswich.To true the guy is a gem,works hard,sparky wont be letting him goHe signed a new contract last weekBullsh#t, Mackie was runner up player of the season and just signed new contract til 2016, dream on carrot cruncherCarrot cruncher? Oh how we laughed at that..not. what a truly lame attempt at an insult.I live near Ipswich,support qpr,and can categorically state that Mackie WONT be going anywhere let alone a club in terminal decline like Ipswich lol

Derby county to sign

Rhys Murphy-Free Transfer

He is trying to agree a package to leave Preston after being transfer listed by the League One side.(9)(2)


04 Jun 2012 16:20:56
Gylfi Sigurdsson does not want Reading return.Danny Murphy on way to sign for Blackpool on 1 year deal. Joe Allen would consider moveing away from Swansea. Scott Sinclair future also foggy. Kevin Phillips wants to join a Premier League club despite agreeing a one year etension to Blackpool FC, he wants to play his final year of his carrer in the Premier League. Marius Zaliukas on verge of Southampton move. Russell Martin staying at Norwich. Grant Leadbitter wants Premier League move also.(3)(24)Leadbitter signed 3year deal with boroGrant leadbitter signed for boro last week, canny rumours these like lolLeadbitter has only just signed for middlesburgh on a FREE from IpswichJoe allen would only leave to join rodgers at liverpool, which isnt allowed for a year, and as for sinclair, he can f offHoly craap you can read sigurdssons mindLeadbitter already went to Middlesbrough which just shows all of this is untrue .Leadbitter joined middelsboroughSo the fact that Holloway lets Philips stay in Brum Mon-Thurs and train at home, giving him amazing freedom & great pay matters for nothing? Stop playing football manager and get a grip. I would also think the fact that he said he loves the football, the manager, and the club and he has decided to spend his final year playing for Blackpool mean nothing?! Of course, I forgot, you said we're selling him so he's obviously gone.I never thought we'd have a chance of resigning Gylfi anyway. He's going to Liverpool as he is better than all the midfielders they have bar GerrardYour obviously wrong! Leadbitter went ages agoMichael Laudrup to be next Norwich Manager. Top league experience, hungry for success and would be a great stepping stone for him


04 Jun 2012 16:17:05
malkey has just said hes staying at cardiff and in even better news the owners are putting huge investment into the club which will be announced later this week.(21)(6)So that's Mankey off then. His word counts for nothing.It's true!Brendon rogers said he didn't want the Liverpool jobHe was never ruled out by the chief executive of liverpool Malkey was by the norwich chief executive. P.S Watford fans go away

Shwan jalal going to huddersfield in part exchange for Alex smithies plus 300 thousand pound? Source friend of jalal(5)(24)Even more rubbish even tho would be happy to see jalal huddersfield would never ever ever sell there goalkeeper for that cheapSeriously doubt Alex Smithies would go to BournmouthAre you having a bubble? Seriously? Smithies back to League 1, the division that we have been promoted from. If Smithies goes anywhere it will be PL, hopefully with us. Just needs a full season behind him.That is ludicrous Shawn jalal is our second choice keeper and smithies just got promoted

Mark Hudson is set to lead the exodus from Cadiff this summer by returning to either charlton or palace where he spent the best days of his career. Villa have also stated an interest in resigning whittingham(4)(22)No thanks, morrison is betterWhat's your source ? His best days have been in cardiff...I'm a Charlton fan and to be honest I don't recall his time with us with any fondness at all. No disrespect to the player, maybe it was not the right time but, he had some awful moments with us. I can't see us wanting him back and we have better centre backs now.Hudson was crap. he was a Palarse reject when he joined us and that showed. No way is this happening.Hudson was crap at Charlton. Wouldnt get in front of Cort or Taylor to partner MorrisonQuite the oppisite actually i heard that city were looking at morrison..again only speculation but there's no smoke without fire hey!I wouldn't be surprised if Cardiff were looking at Morrison, or lots of other clubs for that matter. However, I can't think of a single reason why he would want to go to a club that have been going nowhere for a long time, or why Charlton would consider letting him go there.


04 Jun 2012 15:34:02
Charlton are not going for Beavon as Powell has stated he wants high class players and osborne from brentford is a no as well . Quinn from sheffield utd is the more likely signing and Baldock loan will only happen towards the end of the transfer window as CP wants his own players.There won't be any activity or rumours till july 1st when the window officially opens.One signing going round is Delfouneso from villa which is more likely to be on loan but depends if lambert wants him or not and staling from liverpool is another rumour due to the shelvey deal.(4)(9)We have put in a double bid for Quinn and McGuire of Sheff Utd, i know this from sources in the clubAnd its sterling BTW, there is also a high possibility of him and other liverpoolies coming to us, along with inter milan as we have a loan deal with them that started years and years ago but they screwed us by taking great players from us and never sending us one playerAnd its sterling BTW, there is also a high possibility of him and other liverpoolies coming to us, along with inter milan as we have a loan deal with them that started years and years ago but they screwed us by taking great players from us and never sending us one player
They did screw us over by sending us Sorondo. Thats also why the deal ended when we got Relegated from the PREM.What great players have they taken from us ?Ahhh I didn't know the deal ended when we got relegated, my bad!Well we sent Michael turner to them on a six month exchange when he was 16, they also took other promising youths that haven't made it big because they went to Italian footie

El Hadji Diouf to return to French football with Lyon and St Etienne interested as Leeds cannot match his wages he demands.(6)(11)How is this guy still in football? he is the worse person, he is 10 times worse then joe barton.....and him demanding wages is crazy he should be lucky to be playing, horrible person!! {Ed025's Note - he is a horror bag mate..between him, barton, and john terry,,i dont know who is the worst..He got relegated with doncaster how would he then go on to champions league football.THat is jokesIf doncaster could afford his wages so can leeds.Just made up stuff by an idiotEl hadji diouf what a joke never rated him


04 Jun 2012 15:19:28
McNally has stated that he is looking for a manager with "top-league" experience. This would rule out managers like Lee Clarke, Gus Poyet and possibly Chris Hughton. He also stated that it is a "European search", any idea on any European managers that would go to Norwich?(3)(2)I would try and get what players you've got at the minute to stay first because who wants to manage a team going nowhereHughton has Premier League experience and you won't get a big name manger has your a little fish in a massive pondHoughton has managed in top flight with newcastle silly boyWhy would it rule out Hughton. He managed Newcastle, quite successfully, in the Premiership?Rafa Benitez!Hughton managed Newcastle in the Premier League...pretty sure that is a top leagueOne year in management at Newcastle in the Premiership hardly constitutes as experience though does it.If you read this carefully I did say "possibly". Next time make sure you can read properly before criticizing.The last thing Norwich want is Steve Bruce whoose record on managing in the Premiership is awful {Ed001's Note - and yet he had Wigan finishing mid table, while Martinez had them in a relegation dogfight! Strange how Martinez is so highly rated by the media.}Completely agree with the last post! Never rated Matinez and do see why he's such hot property after a couple of abject seasons!

Keith Andrews in set to join Charlton Athletic on a Free Transfer as his contract has expired with WBA, however no decision will be made until he and Ireland are finished at Euro 2012(7)(20)More likely to go to readingBeen in alot of London News PapersReading are interested in sanchez who is CM and andrews is CM so no he isnt going to readingHe's more likely to end up at Ipswich, where he was on loan until his WBA move, would be an automatic captain for the Tractor Boys

The highest club that are interested is
bolton where he wasnt promised first team football and he felt that the club
will will take along time before its strong.
Ask him on Twitter who has made contact with him.Arsenal and Newcastle never heard so much bullDerby? No way.He will pick derby ever ANYBODY is the joke,obviously a wind up ,lolAs a derby fan i must say we wont sign him, yes newcastle were interest in him (dunno if they are now) but he could play for a bigger club, on top of that were apparently signing alot of players according to this website so nothing is fact until the deal is done.

We need better than this to compete in the prem.I'm a Hearts season ticket holder but have family who live in and support Southampton. He played well in the Cup final but in general if you want to rely on someone getting sent off or scoring an og he's your man !Zaliuskas is poor the scottih legue is low championship high legue 1 i think jos and jose are much beter what a waste a money, hopefully this doesnt happen.

Bristol City have accepted 2 bids from burnley and unnamed league 1 club believed to be Bournemouth pitman agent with have talks with oth clubs about a possible transfer(11)(9)Pitman has been in talks with burnley aparentley colapsed not in a milion years will he come back to us at afcb.Whats the source?
i wouldnt mind having pitman back at bournemouth but cant see it happening after we've already signed 2 strikersYou are spot on with that comment.
Bret knows Burnley are a bigger championship club but he and his family love Bournemouth and apparently the new owners can match the deal offered by BurnleyBurnley aint spoke to pitman or his agent, so no talks have broken down...While Brett would always be welcome back at Dean Court, the last thing we need is another Striker.Since when are burnley a bigger championship club than bristol city? total rubbishSince always !Burnley HAVE spoken to Pitman and his agent.
A done deal when JR signs for Saints later this week.
Deal in the region of 1 millionBurnley are a miles bigger championship club than Bristol City. As shown by your previous 2 league finishes where as Burnley finished 12th, 8th and were in the Premier League the season before.Plus afc Bournemouth have had a bid accepted but I believe burnley have offerd 10k a week which afc bournmouth won't match so he could join burnley but u never know

Richard Brodie to start season with Crawley again.(6)(4)No Chance he is on the transfer listRichard Brodie is contracted to Crawley Town until June 2013 - see Crawley club website 8 May 2012 "Retained List". No reason why he shouldn't be part of Crawley's plans for next season.Don't see it. Only played in the conference. If Brodie had nothing to do with Crawley they wouldn't be going for him if he had been released from a conference club. {Ed003's Note - ?? I'm not getting you??, he already is a crawley player,he was out on loan last year}Yes already a Crawley player, but because of Crawleys rapid rise, he last played when they were in the conference (the highest level he is done) and Crawley are now in league 1). If Brodie had signed for say 5 years and Crawley found themselves in the premier league, again, why would you play him simply because he is there when the conference is the highest level he has played at.


04 Jun 2012 14:03:33
Swindon town to seal signing of reading striker Mathieu Manset on a 2 and half year deal this week.(14)(10)Two and a half year deal in the summer? seems pretty stupid to sign someone who's contract we finish in January. I wonder if someone is lying.Half year deals only occur for january signings... whilst the signing itself may happen, the contract length you have made up is rubbish...They won't get Morrison for 250k. Double it at leastWhy do people write so much rubbish on this page with all the player Swindon are so say signing we could field a different team each game.


04 Jun 2012 13:51:10
Glenn Belezika from oldham and Adrian Cieslewicz of Wrexham will sign for peterborough in the next few days.(1)(7)Alex Cisak then?Belezika, haha he has only made 1 sub appearance for latics so i can't imagine a champ club would want him just yet, so i think your getting him confused with someone else i.e. cisak


04 Jun 2012 13:45:55
Stevenage are very interested in signing Andre Gray and Benik Afobe. Should they fail to bring either one of these players in, they will go for James Constable.(2)(12)Afobe dream on....Not a hope of getting afobe - he was at my team, royals on loan from jan 2012 to end of the season - he was ok, still a bit raw - i think he'll do ok but reckon arsenal will loan him to championship team for the season


04 Jun 2012 13:40:30
Huddersfield to sign;
Lee Peltier - Leicester - 750k
Lloyd Sam - Free
Tommy Smith - QPR - Loan
Paul Connolly - Free
Sean Morrison - Reading - 250k
Sam Baldock - West Ham - Loan
Darren O'Dea - Free(18)(18)The Sanchez move to Reading is definitely on, trust me250k For morrison? we wont sell him to you for less than we bought himSam Baldock will remain in London or the South, could be a loan deal with Ipswich or CharltonI'm a town fan and no way will we be getting Morrison for that low price.£250k for Morrison?! More like £750k!What about lafferty ?Itll take 500-750k to sign morrison at leastCan see basically all of these happening, except prices are a bit low on most of them, and replace darren o'dea with kyle laffertySam baldock would be greatYou wont get Sam Baldock, linked with the league one champions Charlton and if he's stupid enough to choose the team that finished 20 points behind them then hell fit right in at udders

Bradford City have today agreed a £75k fee with Mansfield Town for striker Matt Green, who scored 29 goals in 44 appearances at Conference level last season. Green is set to sign a 2 year deal with The Bantams, as they look to bolster their attacking options.

Ex Huddersfield Town defender Nathan Clarke has also been offered a contract at Valley Parade.(7)(12)Bullst mate!! Green has got a 2 year deal with us and he even said he is not going anywhereI'd be delighted if Nathan Clarke signed for Bradford. Think he might be on too big a wage but defo worth enquiring! Mcardle Davies Clarke Parker would be a very good back four.

Newcastle are stepping up their efforts to sign Anthony Pilkington from Norwich.They have had a bid for the player rejected but will be going back in again.(10)(30)Leyton Orient are set to sign Tommy Caroll, who is desperate to return to London. Orient Manager Russell Slade wants Carroll on a long term lone to replace Matt Spring who is having talks with a Div1 club.The pilkington move is likelyReally cannot see newcastle even wanting pilks. did a good job for norwich when he played! but spent most his time on the bench towards end of the season. think newcastle have the sights a bit higherHe is not for sale, so Newcastle need to look elsewhere


04 Jun 2012 12:31:43
reading are closing on deals for marriapa of watford and Carlos Sanchez who is a free agent(20)(8)Reading have walked awayThey havn't walked away. its all rubbish. deal agreed weeks ago just waiting for him to come back from international dutiesReading have pulled out of the deal to sign watfords marriappa. Malky at Cardiff when hearing about the deal stepped in as he does not have any targets. He just watches Watford players that become available.


04 Jun 2012 12:28:07
Newport County captain Gary Warren has left the club in search for a higher league club. Interest from Scotland and a few Football League clubs. Shrewsbury a possible destinantion.(11)(8)Tell him if he comes to Scotland not to come to Hibs - they're rank!

Reading FC have walked away from deal for Watford's Adrian Mariappa. Second improved bid of nearly £2m incl add ons was rejected.(9)(16)Bid was accepted weeks ago. Medical will be completed after Mariappa returns from international duty.2 bids rejected and walked away, Alan pardew expected to make 4 mil bid after having a 3.5 mil bid rejected in JanuaryMariappa to sign for reading after returning from playing for the Jamaica national teamBid was rejected. just hopeful reading fans saying the bid was accepted.Even the local Watford paper doesn't believe that the bid was rejected. It's just Watford trying to appease their fans by saying "Well at least we tried to keep hold of him" when Readibg sign him. It's just hopeful Watford fans who think that the bid was rejected.Bid was accepted, 100%
MrRfcDon't want Shorey back and if Sanchez wants 40k a week, then we don't want him either. It's vital that the wage structure is maintained. It's what Reading are aboutHope we get Sanchez, but agreed he is not worth 40k/wk at the moment...but at some point 'the Reading way' will have to change if AZ's 5 year plan is to come to fruition. We won't get to be a top 10 club without spending more than we do right now.


04 Jun 2012 12:04:29
jono forte of southampton set to join notts county for a fee of around 300k as saints look set to clear out squad players allowing them to get a 25 man prem squad set up(14)(12)This one is quite probable, and another 3/4 to follow. No disrespect to the players involved, but if they are not going to be used on the pitch in the Premiership it is only fair they are moved on to somewhere where they can be fully utilised and to continue with their careers.Forte will certainly be leaving. He had one good game since joining and wasn't even in the squad at all last year.That one good game was a really important one too. I thank him for that!I'l thank him for leaving.If Notts County had 300k to spend, they would not spend it all on Jonny Forte. 75k tops.75k he isnt that badGood luck to himI wouldnt spend 300k on forte. 150k more like. i doubt we have 300k to spend anyway.


04 Jun 2012 12:03:06
Norwich have made an approach to former Huddersfield manager Lee Clark(24)(30)Have you not read anything Mcnally has said?McNally has stated that he is looking at candidates that already has experience managing in premier or top European league so that would make your rumour very unlikely.Sounds like steve mclaren

04 Jun 2012 11:45:28
Luton are to announce the double signing of Chris Zebroski and Craig Stanley from Bristol Rovs in the next week. Enoch Showunmi is also a target if they miss out on Jon Shaw. Kidderminster's Dave Hankin and Stevenage's Ronnie Henry also on Buckle's hit list.(10)(8)

Readings move for Carlos Sanchez is on the verge of collapse as he wants £40K a week and Reading are not willing to give him that much. Reading are also looking at former Royal Nicky Shorey the left back having recently been released by West Brom. They are also considering competing with Aston Villa for the signature of Grant Holt.(11)(19)We are going to have pay the money to get the players to compete also shorey backward step not good enough for WBA not good enough for usSachez will sign
MrRfcShoreys shocking from an albion fan thanks for long tho ;) and shorey would be alrite for you lotI know you have new investment, but there is no way you will be paying any player 40K a week, your management have already stated that they will invest but wisely likme Swansea and Norwich last season, so stop thinking you are going to do a QPR and throw stupid money about, and QPR have thrown stupid money on players apparently Barton is on £60K a week which still has four years to run which represents £11M+
I for one do not think he is a great player more a solid premiership level player who also has major baggage and a red mist problem.I would resign Shorey on a one year deal with the option of a further year, he's quicker than Ian HarteShocking for albion but ok for reading - erm and how have you fared against us in the past 3-4 games- oh yes you lost 1-0, 3-2, 3-2 and drew 2-2Agree that although we have the invested we wont pay silly wages like qprYou obviously havent seen shorey run for a long time then mate hes shocking


04 Jun 2012 11:33:43
Preston North End will sign François Zoko in a two year deal(12)(17)He was the best forward seen at Deepdale last season. Let's hope it happens.Yeah he was the best that played us .. But .! We were very bad last year .. Very badAnd lets all hope that it continues like that...I cant see Zoko dropping down to a team that finished 15th (below Carlisle) He will be looking for a Championship club to take a chance on a league 1 journeymanWhy , let's all hope 2 us 2 fail ? He knows he goin team that will be up there challenging ,, not makin the numbers up like our Cumbrian friends ..!!Challenging......Challenging for what? Your all new PNE team hasnt even kicked a ball yet and after the dross that Westley brought in at Christmas, what makes you think that he will get it right with players who were at best average from Yeovil & Tranmere. Why should you suddenley become a good team overnight....If it was that easy, every club would sack off all it's players and bring in a whole new team.....oh wait, that's exactly what you have done......League 2 here you come.U say all the players we got & getting , average .. Does zoko come into that category .. Average ? All I said ,,, we were bad last year . Anything gotta b better therefor & poss challenging ? But I'll b watching for all the mega signings in this div1 & if u check , ull see all these signings were offered contracts by there clubs !

04 Jun 2012 11:11:39
Reading could be a top 8 club be it depends on what the new owners do when madejski is out of the picture(11)(36)Any club could be be top 8, all depends on results not your investments.Reading will never be a top 8 club for as long as you are in the premiership and that may only be 1 season but if more you will always be fighting relegationToo many of you Reading supporters trying to run before you can walk.

Your club needs to survive the first couple of seasons in the Premiership-that is your priority. Both Reading and West Ham will struggle to do that."Reading will never be a top 8 club for as long as you are in the premiership and that may only be 1 season but if more you will always be fighting relegation"

And man city will never win the title, oh they did. Anything is possible and things do change.You say too many Reading FC fans are running before they can walk, but on this forum it seems that more people are writing us Royals off. We work well as a team, We have a club in next to no debt compared to other clubs in the prem, and we have an amazing manager that scouted players for us such as Kevin Doyle.Instead of poking your unwanted nose into what Reading are doing worry about your teams . Jealous of how well we are doing? Investors who care? Players that have passion? Top class manager?And Southampton...sorry Lambert FC won't?Is that the Keven Doyle who got relegated with Wolves ?, hardly a stand out player in premiership.

Stating that you can be a top 8 club is plain stupid and making your club a target from other clubs supporters.
Southampton supporters are also talking like they are world beaters and that they appear to be signing everybody, similar to your own fans comments.
Leicester supporters were full of themselves last year and throwing money around like confetti and where did they finish.
Your target next year should be exactly what Norwich & Swansea wanted,to finish 17th or higher,anything else was a bonus.Who are they going to replace in the top 8 haha? You could say that about my team Newcastle but they replaced Fulham who aren't/weren't exactly touchThe point you seem to have missed at Reading is you may have new investors but you have yet to see the colour of their money in terms of new players and facilities to help you in the Premiership.

You don't have to look far to find other clubs who have suddenly become excited about the chance to be another Chelsea and find they turn out to be a Portsmouth!
So, yes, walk before you can run, because otherwise you may fall flat on your face.Reading were 8th last time they were in the premier league so no point saying we will be in a relegation battle cause you don't know that.Pretty sure we finished eighth in our first season in the premiership, although we had a better team then, we have a decent amount of money now.'Is that the Keven Doyle who got relegated with Wolves ?, hardly a stand out player in premiership.'

Kevin Doyle was the 6th top scorer in the PL with Reading in 2007, so you can't really say he wasn't a decent player. Besides, the commenter was referring to the SCOUTING of Kevin Doyle, who McDermott found out of nowhere and brought him in from Cork for 80k in 2005.Last time Reading were in the Premier League you got relegated, the season before you finished 8th. I dont think Reading will be a team that will finish top 8 every season.Honestly as a Reading fan myself id take survival. But Brian McDermott is probably one of the most underrated managers in the country. He has an amazing eye for a player, is a great tactician and has a great personality. I dont think we'll get top half but an 11th or 12th placed finish is realistic if we sign the right players. I cant see us challenging for europe in the near future but I don't think we'll be in a real relegation scrap eitherThis argument is stupid. Have to wait to see how we spend the money before you can say we're waste it. Also awesome players/managers come from reading e.g. Alan Pardew- Your newcastle manager

Sky Sports Football News are carrying a report that a number of clubs including Bristol City and Huddersfield are tracking Brighton's Calderon.(8)(13)Great player hopefully Brighton will keep hold of him.Going to either of those clubs would be a step backwards for him. And that's coming from someone who doesn't even like Brighton!{Big G Voice} Good cover fullback but we need a more talented player who can defend and get back quicker after getting forward. scored some important goals. verdict good but still requires some one better, rather have a new centre defender.Bristol city is not a small club, bigger fan base than BrightonBristol can have all the fanbase it wants but if they don't go to matches it doesn't matter a fat lot. Average last season was 4K per game less than Brighton. Hope you get your new ground before the old one falls down about your ears - it's going to be a close run thing!Lol are you joking bigger fan base we just sold 23000 seeason tickets ground extensiono 32750 by next season and we will fill itBristol city took over 10,000 more fans to the play off final than Brighton! So how u goin to sell 37,000 every week! Wake up!Bristol is alot closer to Cardiff than it is for Brighton which explains why there may have been a few more Bristol fans. Anyhow, I was there - Leon Knight, Knight Knight!You took more fans to the play off final because we had to travel 6 times the miles compared to Bristol city and we still out sung youHuddersfield are on the rise trust me, more money than both these clubs, bigger fan base and historyWell Bristol only being about an hour away from Cardiff and Brighton being about 5 hours away, swap the distances around and we will see who take moreThe play off final was at wembley not cardiff and if im not mistaken brighton is alot closer to london than bristol is and also were getting a new staduim just like you did but we didnt have to play and some rubbish athletics ground for yearsBristol city bigger fan base then Brighton lol really is that a joke

You heard it first(11)(26)Gunter going to reading if he has ambitionReading fans, comments like the last one will only alienate all other supporters, according to you lot if Gunter comes tyo Norwich he will lack ambition ? , why because we finished 12th last season, just stick to rumours not slagging off other clubs, and be satisfied to just survive last year.Second season syndrome, Norwich will be down next season.

Reading (a yoyo team) is a smart choice

Possibly Everton, tied in with the George Green deal?(2)(5)If everton it will be someone like femi orenuga who was at accrington last yearOrenuga isn't a CB. It will probably be a very young player seeing how Duffy is definitely in Moyes' plans.

Steve EFCAlso, hasn't Orenuga now been released?Hope it's Andre Wisdom from Liverpool. We need a right back and he can cover centre half too

Peterborough have had a bid rumoured to be £1.4m plus add on's accepted by Dundee United for the transfer of Johnny Russell to the championship club. Russell will link up with ex Dundee team mate Danny Swanson at Posh.(6)(12)You have to offer a striker awell in exchange so this wont happen.Derby county had a 1 million pund bid turned down and were told this and they came back with 800k + Chris maguire and ad ons such as 150k for promotion on his first year and this is being discussed.

MK Dons have accepted an offer of £300k from Peterborough for striker Dean Bowditch(4)(13)No they haven't. None of our players are for sale (unless it's silly money, and £300K for Bowd's isn't in that category). Darragh's more interested in paying legal fee's than transfer fee's right now.One has to admire in amusement, the determination of the Posh fans to their utmost to upset the MK Dons' fans... how sad.Now that is funny!Well that's rubbish haha none of our players are going to Peterborough pipe down.Dont be daftBowditch to sign for Peterborogh-haha don't make me laugh-he is far to good for POSH people like youMK Dons shouldn't even be in the league. They merely hi-jacked Wimbledons league place.Bowditch is a load of rubbish. If he did join us then it would be a very sad day for our football club!Don't be silly he should sign for posh.
He dose not deserve to play for mkd, from my piont of view mkd should not be playing in the league they should of started from the very bottom instead of stealing AFC Wimbeldon's place in the league.Why would posh want bowditch ? oh dearBowditch no chance signing for posh. He's too good for them! People need to get over it, we're in the league and it doesn't matter how we got there people need to move on and stop worrying about things which do not concern them!If you think Bowditch is too good for us then you know nothing about football!Give it a rest with the mk nicked the spot! Im an ex wimbledon fan and the club got saved, the fa then pissed it up! Afc created two whole years before hand!Wimbledon did not get saved. Their place in the football league was taken by a a club with no connections to Wimbledon who saw it as sheer opportunism to get a place in the football league without working through the system like any other new club. Every other football fan I speak to as I travel the country, without exception, have the same opinion despite what gloss you wish to put on itI agree with your comment regarding Wimbledon, it has been hijacked by those who have nothing to do with the club. The sooner Afc stop claiming the history to a club they started abandoning in 1991 and by 2002 denied even existed only have themselves to blame. You tried to kill the club, you failed, get over it and stop blaming others for your failure to support your club at its time of need. If you had, maybe it would have survived near where it was.'stealing AFC Wimbeldon's place in the league'

This is where you guys let yourselves down, you don't even know what happened.No one likes us - we dont care! We are MK super MK, we are MK Dons FC!

Stop worrying about what the MK Dons are doing and worry about your own team pal.

Oh and Alan Smith still mulling over Dons contract - Few other offers on the table but he does love the Mighty Dons!!

Bournemouth player Marc Pugh will join Peterborough in a player + cash deal. The fee is rumoured to be £500k + Grant McCann(5)(11)Peterborough have more fans on here than they have for home gamesI dont think most of these rumours are started by our fans.(IF) Pugh leaves it will be to an established Championship team. AFCB and P'boro will be swapping places next season and would not be surprised to see Pugh stay with us.Bournemouth are not even an established league 1 team yet!Pugh will be leaving us, either this summer or Jan. He is not daft enough to go to P'Boro, his sights are either top championship club or stay put... i think he's going anyways. UTCIADNot established in league1 ? we have been in it for about 15 of the last 17 years lol

Chapman, Leven and Constable will all leave Oxford. Constable wanted to stay and has shown his loyalty on more than one occasion, however Wilder feels the time is right for him to go, mainly because he feels he can replace him for a lot less than the current fees being mentioned for him. Chapman will only resign if there is no way out and clubs are now becoming aware of this, any fee set by trbunial will be very small so this is quite a blow to the club. Leven is a bit of a surprise, however expect some good bids which Wilder will except, again he will be expected to replace with only part of the fee recouped.
Oxford will however sign Shaw, this has the potential to be a very good signing.(1)(13)Jon Shaw will not move from his home near Newcastle.
Likely destination is Hartlepool.
Leven is having an op on a problem with his shoulder he has suffered with since boxing day.
So whose going to pay a good fee for someone injured, who only has one year left at Oxford, and was a free agent last season?
And it's 'accept' not 'except'Oooo sorry me lord! us peasant type folk do make a mistake sum tims ya no!! So what you are saying my oh so accurate freind is that really it's not worth keeping him then? Injured and soon out of contract....for starters the injury is not one that will threaten hi s career and secondly the fact that he will be out of contract means that this is the clubs best chance of recouping something is it not? Hope there is no errors in here my sire.

04 Jun 2012 08:44:32
Paul Lambert to have 1 good season at Villa then will be the next manager of Man Utd once Ferguson retires. Lambert to this point has only used clubs to further his career, has no loyalty on that front only that he wants to manage at the highest level. Villa fans are deluded in thinking he will stay there, he will do the same to Villa as he has done to all the clubs he has managed so far. So , my money is on Paul Lambert taking over from Sir Alex Ferguson next season. Watch this space.(17)(33)Obviously a bitter norwich fan,lolYou are kidding right. There are five people that have a chance to replace SAF. Mourinho, Pep. Outside of those two Moyes, Ole or Giggs. Lambert thats the funniest thing i've heard all day. Maybe Spurs one day but never Man Utd. They would already have a plan in place and I can guarantee it's not Lambert.Sounds like a bitter norwich fan just remember what he has done for you and the division you was in when he took over he deserves to manage a big club like villaLoL at the dissilusioned man who wrote this post. I agree with the above comment Fergusen's replacement will be one of those five. My money's on Moyes (Fergusen is a big fan). Or Giggs (Rumour of support from players to have Giggs take over when he and Fergusen retire).It will take more than a season to get Villa back on track!I thought steve bruce was taking over fergie as he working close with him now at old traffordThink guardiola is nailed on for the job as saf will move upstairs after next season and guardiola taking a season out as for lambert think villa is his level at the moment but i could see him getting a big job in germany in the future if all goes well at villa as for norwich ye want to pray some of the rumours in the north east are not true cos relegation will be nailed on with bruce as next managerVilla are a club living on past glory! Paul Lambert had a fantastic time at Norwich and should be thanked with best wishes for the future. He will not be content at Villa, the chairman won't back him, why did they loose Martin Oneil? When Lambert gets as far as he can or a better offer comes along he will be off! One of the big four may take him, what links with Man U did Fergie have when he took over? So don't be sucked into thinking a replacement will come from inside. They will take the best man for the job and Lambert fits that mould so it's not so far fetched!How bitter he has done a great job for your club im a saints fan adkins has done a fine job for us and if he ever choses to leave if a bigger club wanted him id say he deserves it for the job he has doneI dont even think villa will stay up next seasonYou can't pencil a manager of his calibre because if he fails with Villa he won't even get a job with a mid table premier league teamVilla a big club?? now who is being deluded! villa will be relegation candidates again next seasonIf PL has the kind of season that earns him the United job then I think most Villa fans will be extremely grateful for turning the club around. Obviously this would also make the club an attractive proposition for the next elite manager to carry on developing a neuvo-top-4 side.
To be fair I think it is unlikely - but if the season proves the bitter NCFC fans right - then I will be happyThere is only 1 manager that is going to Man Utd and that was agreed many seasons ago. David Moyes has only stayed at Everton due to the knowledge that once Fergie retires, he will take over.Bitter canarie me thinks,you would still be in the wilderness without lambert,and why has he got to be loyal to any club,owners have no loyalty,so stop spouting crapUnless he wins the capital one cup + FA cup +Premier League and United get relegated. Then he may get the job if he is lucky

Millwall defender Alan Dunne is having talks with Stevenage this week. Meanwhile Millwall are to make a surprise bid for West Ham striker Sam Baldock.(0)(10)Dunne wouldnt leave millwall, he's a one man club so i dont know where you got this from. Also west ham wont sell Sam baldock to us!I will drive dunney there myself! im afraid that he is not a championship player! & baldock is an average player! coylDunne has become a liability, not Championship standard, behind Jack Smith in the pecking order now Malone will be playing left back - good move for all parties IMO; do they want Barron as well?We live and hope, I'll pay for a helicopter!Dunne and Forde have been our weak links for years!They both know the crowd are on them,Wont be sorry to see them go

United to reinforce soon hope to see some sensible reinforcements
GK - Vorm
LB -Baines
CM - Gaitan and Eriksen
ST - Defoe and/or Huntelaar(8)(25)Defoe is a must, and if they do get gaitan and Eriksson that would mean they are back on track.
But I have been told united have no money to spend after capture of kagawa and Powell so unless Fergie sells no more coming in.Go for huntelaar,gaitan/eriksen only we don't need baines,vormor defoe because we have de gea,lindegaard.


04 Jun 2012 07:33:55
Wolves strikers Jake Cassidy & Leigh Griffiths have emerge as Peterborough United targets. Posh also want Freddie Sears(5)(10)Doubt Cassidy we see him as a talent for the next few years n after bagging 7/8 goals in 3 months of 1st team football I'm sure he will play apart in our squad this seasonIf he is scoring that many goals then I don't think he will come to posh.

Anthony Wordsworth of Colchester & Stevenage pair Luke Freeman & Michael Bostwick will complete moves to Peterborough in the coming week.(5)(10)Never gonna happenIts not beyond the realms of possibility.

As a Reading fc fan I'm concerned that marriapa is waiting to see if any other offers come in before deciding on joining us this isn't the Reading way. We buy players that make us their first choice
Plus all this talk of money and how rich we are is making us look stupid in here
So please Reading fans lets keep it realistic. We will buy if it's right for the club. Not for buying sake.(6)(9)Marriapa is on holiday. There is a fee agreed but everyone thinks it has been rejected due to SSN being slow. He will sign in 2 weeks. I think we are all talking money due to this never happening before.Agree with you totally on wanting players that actually want to play for you. as a saints fan i will be disappointed if rodriguez doesn't join but if we're not his desired choice then its for the bestIt is now being rumoured that the deal has fallen through after Watford rejected a £2mil +add ons, seems the ball is in your courtWe will not spend madly players got us up will b given chance if goes wrong then in jan panic button will b hit and big money will b spentWe will put in a second bid for marriapa around 3.2 million. And they should accept it. His is one of our main targets as we try to strengthen our defence.Mariappa is not worth over 3m. 2.5m should get him I think or id tell Watford to get screwed

Mk Dons are in talks with former Loanee Alan Smith who has been released by Newcastle and former Norwich defender Zak Whitbread

Former MK Dons player Aaron Wilbraham is rumoured to be in talks with league one side Walsall(15)(6)Bearing in mind Whitbred supposedly wanted more than £16 k a week at Norwich, hence his release, I can't see him signing for MK Dons unless they are prepared to make him their highest ever paid player as well as give large rsies to all their other squad members!
Whitbread has been linked with Villa (no surprises there), Sunderland and QPR.Whitbread got released because he is very injury prone nothing to do with wages.MK Dons will not offer any player more than 2.5K per week2.5k a week thats rubbish, we offered alan smith 6k


04 Jun 2012 02:26:24
MK Dons are looking to sign free agent Izale McLeod for the second time. They sold him for £1.1 million five years ago and want him back as they build for another promotion push. Last season they lost Sam Baldock and Charlie MacDonald failed to deliver enough goals to get them the promotion they crave. The fans think Izale can fill the void left by Baldock.(12)(6)This is true. Izale on his way to the mighty Dons, Macdonald is no good, terrible stiker.

Barnsley are looking at

Defenders -
Jacob Walcott
Aaron Martin
Liam Moore
Miles Addison
Tamika Mkandawire

Midfielders -
Richard Chaplow
Therry Racon
David Bell
Craig Forsyth

Strikers -
Karl Sheppard
Robert Hall
Callum Ball
Nouha Dicko
Mamado Bagayoko

All are in the championship which is what keith hill is looking for. Even tho some are far fetched for Barnsley Keith thinks they would go well with the clubs dynamics(11)(21)Jacob Walcott is a striker...Richard Chaplow and Aaron Martin are now in the a premiership with Southampton FCKarl Sheppard is a Reading player so not from the championship. You may get him but only on loan.Martin and chaplow are premier leagueChaplow isnt in the championship and would never go to barnsleyTamika Mkandawire is one of our best, most vesitile players but unfortunately was out injured most of last year! No way KJ would let him leave! As for Racon.... I'll pay his taxi fare!!

liam lawrence,dave kitson,erik huseklepp,greg halford,tal ben haim and kanu join with joel ward,stephen henderson, jason pearce and benjani for leave of portsmouth fc.
balram chainrai to buy portsmouth fc and re-sign: david james,papa bouba diop,ricardo rocha,matt ritchie and jamie ashdown,with it the first team from portsmouth for the season 2012/13 will be:

8-bouba diop
9-futacs(5)(39)Im a portsmouth fan and if we got david james and ashdown james wouldn't be our number 1 also we cant afford diop championship clubs want him also we wont keep norris and mullins and i know ritchie is from portsmouth (gosport) but swindon are in our league now and he wont come back also i hear pompey want mcleod paynter when everything is resolvedCan not see the above happening, players like Bouba-Diop are the past! Wages are far too high. Appleton, given the chance, will build a youthful, hardworking team that may take a year or two before moving Pompey back up the divisions.Wish it was that easy100% No chance in hell. Pompey fans are the most deluded in the country.Hilarious, and i'm a Pompey fan! Appy has already stated that he'll not be signing anyone over 28 yrs old or so. Plus Mullins & Moks both earn well above the £3,000 ceiling on wages we'll have to have to perform within budget next season. Oh, and no Pompey fan would want Diop back! PUP.I have heard that this time balram chainrai will not pass the fit and proper person credentials by the football leagueDeluded what you on a bout? one fan says this and you say all pompey fans are deluded, im quessing your that team down the road then lolIm not a Southampton fan, but even I agree that Pompey fans are seriously deluded.I suspect you will find Chanrai is not accepted as a fit and proper owner-if it comes down to him. And, then, I'm afraid it leaves no interest in investing so I would seriously hold off booking any season tickets for a while.If Chanrai fails the fit & Proper test (which I very much doubt), then the Trust will buy Pompey. Either way, Pompey will rebuild based on youth. Some from the current players coming through and some via 'frees', etc. It will probably take a couple of years to sort out but agree that Pompey will most likely be back in the Championship in the not too distant future.I live in the same village as asdown was talkong to him at the village fair he says hes moving abroad so thats rubbishReally winds me up when people keep calling pompey fans deluded. idiots like the one who posted this rumour are the sort of "head in the clouds" people that we can do without. 95% of pompey fans know that we can't afford people of this calibre and are quite happy to accept whoever will be playing for us next season - happy in the knowledge that the club has survived.

Anderson. Owen. John brayford. Bruno of valencia. Jarvis. All signing for stoke tgis summer. Defoe agreed personal terms in january but price not agreed. Pulis will try tosign him this summer. If he cant he will try for lukaku on loan.

Jones whelen fuller woodgate collins higginbotham leaving(12)(30)Why Defoe want to go to a club who play the long ball? Defoe isn't very tall, so it's likely that the ball will sail over his head.U got any prof to back any of that up becasue they would all be great signing but can only see maybe one or two of them signingDefoe agreed to join in jan but harry blocked move so he would come and play for stokeI hope we dont get owen he is to injury prone and to the first comment its nothing that us stokies havent heard before plus deoe would love to join stoke so he can play upfront with crouch again which means if we wanted the long ball would work with crouch flicking it onto himFuller & Collins can come back to Ipswich, where they have played before, and get regular gamesWhelan signed a new contract in Jan so explain that one?


03 Jun 2012 23:56:27
Yeovil to sign John O'Flynn from Exeter as he wants to continue playing league one football. He will be a back up player mainly used as a sub.(5)(9)If only Yeovil would take him !O'flynn isnt conference standard let alone league 1He might as well go back to barnet

Yeovil to beat Tranmere, Hartlepool and Carlisle to the signing of Freddy Eastwood as he doesent want to move up north.

Swear I saw him in Huish earlier today.(6)(10)Not sure about this rumour but I hope he does sign. Though he did give a hint on his twitter that he could be signing for Scunthorpe!Hes already going back to southend,Why would he be in huish on a bank holiday sunday when everyone is off and away.. if its true, he will come when johnson is back from holiday and look around and talkThats good news didn`t want him at rovers anywayHis goal scoring over the last few seasons is poor anyway so not a lot of takers for him really. league One teams need a scorer who can get 15 to 20 a season. he hasn't been in double figures.

Preston boss Graham Westley said he was looking for a target man and sources understand he is eyeing up forgotten stoke striker mamady sidibe on a season-long loan deal.(4)(11)He just signed a year long contract why would
D stoke give him a year contract only to pay him playing for some else lolmfail rumourActually Stoke gave him a year contract to regain his fitness and help him find another club. Fully expect him to go out on loan at some stage so not a ridiculous comment at all.

brighton will spend big for next season otherwise why increase capacity of the stadium if we are just going to sit in the championship . you wouldn"t spend 1020 million pound on a formula one race car and get kevin from the pub to drive it(6)(14)Kevin is a very good driverWe've got a magnificent stadium - shame the player's salary budget isn't in the same league!"brighton will spend big for next season"

just like leicesterIts an ok stadium, wasnt too impressed last season. Just cant see Brighton being a big team in the ChampionshipSalary budget was also discussed and reviewed as argus stated . gus wants brighton to be more of an attractive club to players. like gus said its not if we make the premiership, its when. people just need to be patient, success of a club doesn't happen over night or in one season"an ok stadium"
Ha! No it is a superb stadium...that's why it won the award for the world's best new stadium. I smell jealousy...Brighton will not 'spend big'Lol so many jealous fans. the fact is tony bloom has put in well over 130 millon pound. realistically you dont invest that sort of money and just settle for mid table of the champship. he will want a return on his money so his aim would be to push for top flight football. whether it happens next season or in 3 we will have to wait and see so to all the doubters out there the ball is rolling, accept itIm a brighton season ticket holder and we still won't 'spend big' ,Im not jealous.

But as mentioned in one of my previous posts, Nathan Smith is the primary target after a glowing reference from Terry Skiverton... An enquiry will be made(5)(6)Why would he need to do a trial - GJ know's him well enoughI really hope we do get smithy back, i think he would come back, fans favourite and we neeed a left back.

Frazier Campbell to Wolves with fletcher going the other way and 3mil to wolves(15)(37)Sunderland have only got one senior striker, so that will not happen. We have some good young forwards coming up though ie Connor Wickham, Donk-Won Ji, Ryan Noble and Criag Lynch +.Frazier Campbell + 6Mill maybeRyan Noble is awful he looked good in reserve team football.He came to us on loan and he is very weak he wouldnt be
able to go up agianst Robert huth and other big defenders and i was expecting
him to be faster than he is.

Connor wickham is promising but sunderland made him overated after a
stupid 8 million pound fee was paid when he didnt exactly set the championship a light but under Martin he will find form.

But On the bright side you do have very good talent in Ji as hes quick and a very
good finisherNoble is a goalscorer just needs to bulk up and get some experience at the lower levels, he will probs go on loan at hartlepool next season, then the season after maybe at a championship club, then hopefully in a couple of seasons he will be ready for the premiership, campbell is worth 7m and fletcher is 8m tops, no way is he worth 10m, would rather have campbell than fletcherWhy would we offer campbell and 3m? Campbell better than fletcherWould rather have Fletcher over Campbell any day of the week. Fletcher scored 22 goals in 41 league starts for Wolves. Lets not forget that this is a club then won only 16 of 76 games since his arrival, quite a remarkable record and one that certainly demands a fee of at least 10 million. People need to stop thinking they can get Fletcher on the cheap! for a mid table club he is easily capable of getting 20 goals a season. Finally, yes i am a Wolves fan so this may be a bit bias but you can't argue with the facts.Campbell better than fletcher? Ok....deluded fans once again. I must have forgotten all the goals he's scored?Or you didnt read all of what was said above? 22 in 41 starts. Thats an exceptional record at a club that was in relegation trouble in both seasons at the club! Campbell may have had injuries but his still way off where Fletcher is

Ian culverhouse to stay at Norwich(20)(12)Great news if true on the ball cityHi i hope you are rightI hope he will!! CTIDWould love this to be true. Give him the manager's job!Cant see it, fantastic coach but very loyal to lambert. and suspect the compensation talks happening are more to do with backroom staff than PL himself.

Manchester United will sign Crewe youngster Nick Powell and loan him straight out to Peterborough United, as they look to build for a push up the Championship(23)(28)No!.Chelsea are buying him for 6 million
and loaning him back to crewe for 6 months to see how he plays in league 1
the 6 months to a championship side.If any other side can match that it is what
crewe want."but I want him Dad." "Dont you worry Son I'lla get im fa ye." Nice spoilt brat story but its only that, a story.Silly Man Utd fansIf Man Utd do sign powell then I do think he will come to posh becuase he won't get straight into the Utd side with the likes of Rooney and Welbeck still there.It is already well established that the club do not want any more loan deals as apart from Tunnicliffe I can't think of any that have come off recently. On top of that I'm not sure that he would want more from Man Utd after being sold a dud in Ajose last year and Wootton not working out either.

Any Middlesbrough fc news ?(3)(15)Boro has put £2 bid in for Bristol Citys Martin Woolford£2 isn't much lol. I can see it as a swap deal with Mc Manus going in the opposite directionHeard curtis main is going to sunderlandBoro Dont need to sell and to pry main away would take a considrable sum of money which is risky for a youngster un proven in the premiership!Lol did Sunderland not learn their lesson with the whole Connor Wickham thing?Saw Woolford last year. Seems to take pace out of any attack. City fans I know would be glad to be shot of him. But not to Boro."lol did sunderland not learn there lesson with the whole connor wickhma thing" - great post! although i am a boro fan and i rate curtsi main, beesides hes a boyhood newcastle fan and after steve bruce i dont think they want anymore geordiesMain aint going anywhere ... certainly not this season and would take a huge fee to even get boros attention

Levi Porter will be joining Swindon on trial in Italy this summer. The former England youth international impressed Swindon scouts whilst regaining fitness at Hinckley United last season, scoring 9 goals in 18 games from the left wing.

Source: Levi Porter's agent.(12)(8)If this is true then Swindon could get a decent player. If you keep him away from the drugs and booze then he'll become a key player, its a shame he got into trouble whilst injured at LCFC

READING are set to make a late move for Pavel Pogrebnyak as FULHAM sweat over completing a deal. The Russia international – a free agent – has been offered a permanent contract at Craven Cottage and will make a decision very soon. But the Royals may step in with a better offer.(13)(17)Would be great sighning,fulham reading about the same could do betterCould do a hell of a lot better,lolI heard Reading are interested in Matty EtheringtonNever gonna happenWould be a decent signing for Fulham and a GREAT signing for the royals but i think hes bigger than usHe is already at fulham isnt heReading isnt at Fulhams level yet. Would be quite a signing for Reading, but cant see it happening.It is unlikely Reading would sign him. But with their new owner being Russian and having a lot of money then there is a chance it could happenHe wont go, he has already bought a house near craven cottage

He was loaned out to Olympiakos last year and his transfer fee is not expected to be much. Could fill the hole currently on the right side of midfield!(24)(12)No idea how valid this rumour is, but I'd like this to happenHis agent has apparently banded his name around a fair few Prem clubs. Was talk of Stoke being interested. Would make sense Soton in the runningNot good enough !!!!Terrible player please dont be true!

Plymouth Argyles young player of the year Luke Young is set to join Premier League side Reading for a reporting £3m fee.

Reliable source.(3)(22)How about he's signed a new contract with us so you're not having himYoungy is from plymouth and he signed new longterm deal, byeTheir's no point in saying reliable source if you don't say what it is.

Cheesy LemonReally why would we spend 3 million on a league 2 midfielder ?The Reading posts are becoming more absurd by the day. You do seem to be having problems getting anyone in-perhaps the funds are not as available as you were lead to believe?Why would we want him LOLHalf decent young player, But £3 Million, dream on!Yes a premier league team is going to buy some L2 player that noones ever heard of. Reading will be looking for PL players.Y do people think we will sign league 2 players? We r not a club that's like that anymore£3million for a player who scored only 2 goals in 33 games? I doubt it. The idea of Christian Jolley is better, 19 goals and cheaper.Plymouth fans telling reading to back off he is yours. Have him, as a reading fan i would be well dissapointedProblems getting anyone in? The window opened a couple of days ago. Man United haven't brought anyone I guess by your logic they're having problems getting anyone in also.All the plymouth fans sweating saying we wont get him haha we DONT want himReading you signed LeFondre from L2 hes the blimmin reason your in that league now so quit saying we dont sign from there anymore because you obviously do!Childish argumentWe were in the championship when we got Le Fondre. Plus, no single player was the reason for us getting in the PL, we work as a team. That was the difference between us and Southampton. Of the three teams going up Southampton will need to spend the most.Reading are only in the premier league because of John Madejski's money and now the new owners. You ain't a big club. Just one that has been lucky enough to have a sugar daddy.John Madejski's money? You clearly have no clue, he only spend to keep the club a float and the money we spend is from selling our best players which has kept us out of the prem in recent years. But with the russian coming in we can only get better and don't have to sell our best players.Luke young is a great hardworking midfielder but £3m is rediculous, £50,000/£100,000 mostMadejski a sugar daddy, ! Pull the other one, that's why he sold the majority share because he can't stand the stupid money that's paid for players. He pays more for works of art than he would on a player.

Antonio has signed for Sheffield Wednesday after beating off competition from several CCC clubs for his signature. Should be announced Wednesday/Thursday.(17)(12)"Antonio has signed for Sheffield Wednesday"

Wrong, we haven't even accepted a bid from them. their first offer was rejected immediately and they will need to improve it considerably before they can even talk to him.Actually we have accepted a bid and Antonio is in talks over terms. Its true the £350K was rejected but the clubs have settled for £450K. Now its up to the lad and he knows he wont be in the premier league 25 so its either move or go out on loan. BTW Antonio wont go to Charlton even if he doesnt agree terms with weds as he has family up north so is looking to move up country

He'll be n for Murray at some stage though. The gaffa will look to Collins and Church (reading as part of the mapps deal). The club is in direr straights.Why does malkey try to sign watford player non of them are any good to be honestLaurence Bassini said a while back that Watford are not going to do any business with Cardiff while Malky is in charge.

Arsenal striker Podolski has urged arsene wenger to sign Germany team-mates gotze and shurrle if van persie leaves. The arsenal new boy has taken into account that arsenal pick young talented players and how wenger likes to keep his big players happy.

Chelsea on the brink of a 28million pound deal for Lavezzi.

Jordan Rhodes the Scottish Superstars team is being bombarded with bids from multiple premier league clubs including 2 of the top four according to the simon Grayson.

Manchester united are again chasing Wesley sneijder but this time are keen to spend no more than 40m on the Dutch midfielder.

Manchester city target van persie looks to be staying at arsenal. Even the 280000 a week contract doesn't look like enough to tempt the player. However Ronald de boer says that if Netherlands don't win euro 2012 robin may have the urge to win a trophy elsewhere.(13)(21)I hope you are correct about Lavezzi, would be massively wasted at PSG where let's be honest, he would play in a far weaker league than Serie A. However apparently the deal to PSG is done.Total lies

Southend full back Sean Clohessy reportedly agreed a deal to join Micky Adams side in the next week.

Had talks up at vale last week and all went well.

Apparently vale are set to be took over soon by a new owner and have a very big budget this time around to get promotion. They have just got to wait for the green light to start signing new blood. Ainsworth has already signed I'm led to believe and another non league forward Jon shaw and a las from Histon have held talks with the vale boss.

Very genuine info.(7)(4)Bullst , he wouldn't join vale when hes at southend , when we are the bigger teamI have seen some crp on here but this tops it, why would clohessy leave to port vale, he is a league 1 class player who is staying at southend, also you're skint you couldn't afford a transfer fee and wages for himAinsworth is coming back to burton

Crystal Palace Football Club Transfer News: 12/13 Season.

- Palace are set to offer Andrew Johnson; £20,500 a week on a pay to play bases with a contract leading him to summer of 2013.

- Tunchev deal collapsed after Palace and Tunchev couldn't agree on the contract length.
Tunchev wanted a 2 year contract but Palace are only willing to offer him a 1 year contract.

- Clyne is set to sign for Newcastle this week with Palace receiving a fee of £3,500,000 for the youngster.

- Palace have been in talks with West Ham United about taking Sam Baldock on loan for the whole season with Palace only paying 30% of his wages.(24)(23)I really really really really really really wish.Would love this to be true. Really good player!The Johnson part would be nice if it were true, though any "rumour" that includes wages and fees is going to be rubbish..Palace could never afford to spend 20k a week for johnsonAgree Palace can't afford 20k but seeing the he would be a freebie maybe they might splash out. Maybe pay as you play because of all his injuries.Have u people never thought that they could just reduce the transfer budget and pay him the £20k a week? he is a free. better than signing some average guy for £500k and giving them £10k a week, works out the same with a 1 year contractIm not sure where palace are getting a transfer budget from? Dougie should be concentrating on picking up young players like ward, looking to the future not the past with a player like AJ

COYBOr there's conrad logan, latest keeper on rumours list linked with us. Nah, still would prefer daniels again if neal was to leave.

And poyet has stated he is not leaving.Can't see Judge but the others are possible if unlikely that we would want them all - too many too similar and £1m for McFadzean?

charlton to bolster their midfield and attack with the double signing of francois zoko for free and paul cotts for 350k westley will take 350k for a debbie downer(5)(15)Coutts is not leaving pne for less than 700k ,westley or risdale will not let him go for that moneyIgnore this lad, why would we want zoko who scored an awful amount for league 1 in the championship when we are after baldock and 'cotts' IS coming to us for 550k FACT I KNOW THIS AS I HAVE SOURCES IN THE CLUB!^ i'd prefer to hav Coutts!The Keith Andrews one might have more legs.

Swansea will look to Jay Rodriguez
if they lose out on Sigurdsson(9)(23)So to make up for missing out on a midfielder they'll sign a forward?

West Ham, having had a 3 million bid rejected, have now bid 4 million for Grant Holt. Sources say that Holt likes Big Sam and respects West Ham so a deal could be on the cards unless another team bids more (Aston Villa). Another deal is Ahmed Elmohamady from Sunderland who has been in talks with the Hammers and looks likely to sign in the next two weeks.

My understand is that Reading are very close to completing the signing of Adrian Mariappa from Watford. They are also close to signing Carlos Sanchez Moreno from Valienciennes. With Brendan Rodgers wanting to make Sigurdsson Liverpool's first signing, Reading's back up option if they don't get Gylfi is Cardiff midfielder Peter WhittinghamPD(12)(17)Sorry mate, look'd like you're not getting a CM as Whits is not for sale and Gylfi going to Liverpool now..... Reading to get relegated put £20 on it yesterday!Whittingham not for sale? U ever heard of managers saying things to raise the price?Carlos Sanchez is a CM...Everyone is for sale for the right place mate.That's 20 quid you'll never see again!!Doesn't matter if whittingham isn't for sale we can still make a bidReading will not buy Whittingham they can do better this coming from a cardiff fanWhy would whittingham want to stay at cardiff because I doubt they will get to the prem any time soon and whittingham is far to good for both cardiff and the championshipHe is a fan favorate and settled down in cardiff. He is vice captain and he is a star player at cardiff and maybe he doesn't want to be a squad player at reading and he has just signed a long term contract with cardiff and believes the club is going places. Those good enough reasons for you reading fans

Brett Pitman could complete his move to Burnley for 500,000 pound on Monday(11)(14)The fee will be double that as Bristol will be looking to make a profit on the player£500k thats already been agreed ...
not worth anymore than thatPitman turned down a £700k move to Blackpool because he has a young family and didnt want to move North and wanted to stay in Bournmouth (I think?)

Now I'm not saying Blackpool is a beauty spot (many of the players at Pool, Blackburn & PNE live in Lytham St.annes) but Burnley is not a place where anybody would want to move to if they lived on the south coast.

So cant see this one comming off!!You do realise when players sign for clubs they don't actually have to live in the town! They have things called cars you can use to commute it's a groundbreaking thing really.Why is that i came from the south coast and moved to burnley there are come very nice place close to burnley in fact there is a place called edgeworth 20 miles away thats it one of the most expensive post codes in the north west

Southampton boss Nigel Adkins's record bid for Jay Rodriguez is under serious threat with a deadline past and rival bidders sniffing round. Rodriguez turned down the chance to join the Saints in a £6.5 m transfer at Friday's midnight cut-off point - a stage when Saints lost their exclusive right to approach him. Now they are sweating on offers coming in from Sunderland and Aston Villa. Jay returns from holiday tomorrow so the issue could be resolved over the next few days.

Quality Sunday Tabloids.(11)(28)Didn't we kind of sort of need to wait til he was back from holiday to even START negotiations anyway? Bit difficult to thrash out a deal when they are on holiday, isn't it?Why would any team set a deadline of approaching someone who is currently on holiday? We might lose out on him but it won't be because he's missed a deadline whilst in Mexico!Rodriguez has been away on holiday in Mexico, so Saints have not been able to discuss personal terms with him.....only his agent. As soon as he returns he will meet Nigel Adkins to discuss personal terms and take a medical. And for your information, there is no 'Exclusivity period' on transfers. It's obvious that what you say is a load of bull as you didn't name the 'Quality Tabloids'....what do you read? The sunday sport?.....lolAbsolute tripe!!
Saints are in talks with his agent - why would they set a deadline for completion of talks when the guy is on holiday!!
Now go back to supporting that little team of yours down the M27.Rubbish. Never was an exclusivity agreement. Any other bids that are made would be reported upon, Southampton's bid was quickly reported when successful so we will hear confirmation if any other clubs bid. They haven't bid, no one will match Saints bid. It's up to Jay whether we can agree personal terms when he is back from holiday. That is all it ever was. He's back from holiday tomorrow afternoon, so we will know more then. Stop posting dramatised rubbish to try and have something interesting to say. Situation exactly the same as last week. Shush.There was no deadline?
Someone claiming to ba an agent made it up and it seems you were gullible enough to beleive them.

My girlfriend who's modelling agency works with Amy macdonald (singer) who is married to former Bournemouth striker Steve Lovell who's sister is married to eddie Howe (strange but true) has told her to whack a nifty 50 on Howe to be next Swansea manager. Apparently he got a phone call asking his thoughts on the job. He's been average at burnley but he plays a good passing game so I might go with a tenner on this one(19)(14)I think he would be a great choice.A well presented man who has his team playing ground football.He learned it all at bournemouthAs a Burnley Fan would not be too dissapoined.Would expect a large slice of the compensation Liverpool paid Swansea(Still 3 years left on contract)very weak dealing with experienced players and only has ability to recruit lower league players.
He did well at Bournmouth but has not lived up to expectation in a higher division.You are funnier than frankie boyle whats next sir alex ferguson to take over at burnleyGood tip m8. Just stuck 10 on it. It's abit random for it to be made up. If he gets the job. Ur the man!Howe found his level at
burnleySteve lovell and eddie howe are half brothers ! UTCWaste of money lol Eddie Howe just about kept his job at burnley because of his age and board has faith he can turn them around pushing for playoffs

McDonald in talks with owls over 4 year contract. Was on radio five saying he loves Sheffield and hopes united fans won't hate him. Draw of championship football too much to refuse(10)(11)Strange but true, blades will hate him and he will be a loss to us but im friends with a couple of the juniors and its a big topic amongst the united playersWhy are we so surprised at this. Its been in the pipeline since they overtook us. He said he wanted champ football and hes out of contract. No loyalty in football just money. Only stumbling block is hes still injured so might put things on hold but early summer yet

Preston are looking to bring in stoke striker mamady sidibe on a loan or a free transfer(13)(4)He's just had another contract from stoke so loan more likelyYou can have him hes such a bad player might be okay in a lower league but not in the prem, hes injury prone anywayHe'll be a loan because he's still under contract. But if you want him I'll drive him to Preston myself.Free transfer? Very unlikely as Mama's just been given a 12 month extension to his contract.Please TAKE HIMThe 12 month contract is more as a pay off for his services as the club has as good as said. Wouldn't be surprised to see him loaned out as he is out to prove his fitness to earn a new contract for the 2013/14 season elsewhere.Can't see sidibe leaving stoke. He loves the club and the manager loves him. He might not be the best player for us, but he has been a great servent for us and played his heart out every game he's played. Met him a few times outside some grounds and you cannot get a nicer, genuine guy who welcomes fans, top guy.Sidibe recently signed a new deal at stoke o they wont get him for freeCouldn't agree more ^^^True Stoke fans would not slate big Mama, he's been a great servant to the club. Sidibe also won Stoke's first Prem match for us, against Aston Villa; scoring in injury time to make it 3-2, back of the head job.Sidibe did not win stokes first premiership game against Aston villa . The class of Ricardo fuller did .stoke are a disgrace for offering sidibe a contract and not fullerThat's all very good but you'll have to wait until he gets better first, then i'm sure he'll pack his bagsLearn your facts- Fuller rejected a year contract and Sidibe signed.

More on the Charlie Daniels news - He is set to sign for Sheffield Wednesday with David Prutton moving in the other direction. Cash also part of the deal with 500k thought to be going AFC Bournemouth's way.(2)(6)More bull barnsley was mentioned from you yeasterday now it is shefielld wednesday today stop posting rubbish.If Prutton sets foot on the Dean Court pitch I'm handing back my season ticket!David prutton? i'd rather play with 10 men then have him in midfielderI'm sure Daniels would like a move to Wednesday and I'm sure Wednesday would like Daniels but I'm also pretty sure Wednesday couldn't afford his wages. He was given a mega deal as he was one of the first after our takeover which I have heard is in excess of £13000 basic! When he left orient we beat a host of championship clubs who couldn't/wouldn't match that.PRUTTON ?? he of the bad hair do and couldn`t hack it at thank you. {Ed013's Note - Prutton is a very good player for league 1, a grafter with a good eye for goal. What has his hair got to do with how he plays football}Prutton should not be under estimated. Having seen your club twice last season he would enhance the team. He is a quality player in Division 1. Yes remember you are in the third tier not the PremiershipEverytime i have seen prutton play he's been below average, he is not a good player for league 1 and will not be welcomed at bournemouthI wouild welcome prutton as hes a matchwinner on his day. his experience in l1 could be what we need. ill go for the swapPrutton is not the sort of player we want, thnx but nope

Norwich will sign Danny Murphy.
This is a deffo(7)(28)Norwich will sign nobody deffo not with there debt and the fact everybody wants out as another person has posted you have a 2 year plan to go back to league 1 where your little team deservesWow some real hatred there. You cant build your own team up by knocking another team down. Big teams are great for English football they showcase British talent on the world stage and sometimes bring drama and excitement, but little teams are so much greater, they are closer to the fans and they bring what is so great about football, entertainment that we can actually afford to go and be a part of. They give players the chance to play the wonderful game infront of local fans people who share their own background. Without little teams football would be boring corporate football monstrosities full of prima donna players and managers, it would be like American sports full of show boating and half hearted effort. Little teams have owners who love football and care about the team, not foreign owners who want a new toy or status symbol. Little teams are the life blood of football, little teams remind us of what football should be, passion, hardwork, community and little teams carry more dignity and honor than the jackasses thinking being labeled a little team is something to be insulted about. Win, lose or draw we are proud to be fans of little teamsThere is no debt, its less than 18M and the ground , training academy complex is all bought and paid for, so stop making stupid remarks, clearly you are another disgruntled Ipswich Fan, who thinks you lot will get promoted next season, with your debt and lack of real supporters you are only going one way and it ain't up !What debt? I think the 45m we got for being promoted last season took a huge chunk out of our 23m debt. Stop kidding yourself!Someones an ipswich fan.
actually, all our external debt will be gone by the end of next season. and our investors have all said they are more than happy to put internal debt aside to help the club. one player has ASKED to leave but has said he WANTS to stay. you sir, are an idiot.Lol at he person above
We have very little debts since getting promoted
Also with are fan base we don't belong in league 1
Jealous ispwich fanMain poster - we'll sign noone without a manager calling the shots.
Second poster - Blatant Ipswich some research regarding the debt situation. We'll be free of external debt by the end of the 12/13 season.Someone's jealousWat u on About u little jealous fool. We are debt free. Have 15m to spend on transfers plus the lambert compensation with a decent squad to add to. Over 22,000 season ticket holders and max gates of over 26,000 every game ! So shut up u fool !!If you're going to be an troll, at least have the courage to state which team is lucky enough to enjoy your brave support. And it's 'their', not 'there'. OTBCThis post is a joke, Danny Murphy is too old and Norwich are a decent club with good loyal fans and deserve their place in the Premiership, They are no little team.Agree with the 3rd comment totally

Gylfi will sign for swansea city in the next week(15)(28)Liverpool understandably interested in him nowThat is looking less likely every day.

{Ed006's Note - I think it is going to be up in the air until Swansea see who there next manager is. I would like him to replace Spearing for us at Liverpool.}Yes liverpool are suppose to be interested but he is likely to stay with the swans as he like the way we play and rodgers has also told him to stay hereEd 006 option sounds good to me.
CRIf he does sign for swansea it will only be for a couple of seasons if your lucky, this boy is destined for bigger and better things although a move to swansea would probably be for the best at the moment.If he had wanted to sign, he would have signed already.

stoke city to sign demba ba this week(6)(46)Why would they pay 7m for him now when they turned down the chance to have him for free a year agoBa and crouch wil be good combo
need centre mid poss lampard or ramsey?Because now he has shown he is not suffering from knee trouble and when stoke wanted him he was not freeRamsey wouldnt join stoke after what happend and stoke couldnt afford lampards wages, we need a playmaker in the middleWhy would he leave european football its not like he dosent want to stay or isnt getting first team football.Stoke fans are just annoyed at pullis for not taking him on a free.I doubt he will leave if he does it would be on a big fee because of signing a new contract with no release clause he wants to stay because of cisseWhy would he sign for such a poor teamYou have an impressive imagination, not a chance in hell of this happening, he wont come hes on to bigger things, and we wouldnt want him after everything. (from a REALISTIC stoke fan)He wasn't available on a free to Stoke. Newcastle didn't get him for free either.Just setting the story straight as obviously some idiots know nothing about football. Stoke were offered Bemba Ba from Hoffenheim for £9m, they turned him down due to an underlying knee problem described as a 'time bomb' by the medical staff, West Ham then signed him for £6m. Due to a clause in his contract due to relegation he was then able to join Newcastle for free. Demba Ba has made a few remarks about Stoke's decision not to sign him so it's unlikely he's sign for Stoke. It's even more unlikely that Newcastle would sell him, especially for only £7m.No they wontBefore newcastle fans start getting on their high hourses about this rumour BA was minutes away from being a stoke player in the first place before our medical team messed up big style so if given the chance why wouldn't he want to come now on higher wages if given the chance and another thing it's only a rumours. cheer upHe's too good a player to sign for a rubbish side like stoke !!!Stoke NOT after Demba Ba after passing on him previously. Demba Ba is moving on which will trigger a move for a player to join Stoke.Stoke medical team didn't mess up---they weren't happy with his knee problem and he had failed a previous medical. They simply weren't willing to take a chance but obviously you know his condition better. He has a get out clause at Newcastle and Harry at Spurs has as much as said as they will bid for him and chances are he'll go there.Don't be fooled by the 'free transfer' to newcastle. Big payments were made to make it happen, Ba did not join them for nowt. He will not be going to Stoke who wouldn't want him after he failed a medical both there and at West Ham, but could end up at a club who can afford to take the chance on his knee holding out.

Fraser forster(gk) and Gary Hooper for celtic should have been in the england squad just because they play in he spl they still have to keep out goals and still stick them in the net think hodgsons boobed there hooper a prolific goalscorer and would score goals anywhere giving the service
Hobbybhoy(27)(22)Lambert would be better than hooper for England especially in a penalty shoot outThe SPL is no different from League 1. You didn't even have Rangers to compete with this year. Delusional?My granny can score goals in the spl one of celtics best players (stokes) was released by sunderland couldnt even make reserve teamMate scoring goals against teams who would struggle to get in english div 1 does not represent being good enough to get in england teamHooper needs to prove himself in the Premier league. Not the tin pot SPL! That's why he will move to Southampton.Spl stands for sunday premier league, a place where the best sunday league players play, AHAHAYou people have no idea !! I will take anyone's money that when hooper does move back to England ( and he will do) he will be in your precious England squad within a year - the guy is a qualityfinisher and his overall game is very underrated - its a joke your hopeless managers can't see this just because he plays in the spl {Ed001's Note - if Welbeck can get in the England squad, my nan could, and she is 90, on a zimmer frame and has dodgy hips. Hardly saying much to suggest Hooper will get in, even though you clearly over rate him, as he is lazy and average, though he is, I agree, very much a goalscorer. He is just Celtic's answer to Kris Boyd.}So on your argument that hooper needs to prove himself in the English premier,
Next season if hooper scores 10 times in Europe and finishes top scorer in Spl, that would not be good enough?
The season Carroll was bought for 35m hooper bought for 2m both played in championship and hooper finished top scorer, since then what has Carroll proved nothing!
Even jelivec has come from the so called tin pot league and only played half the season and scored 3 times the goals Carroll has.I dont get this atall why english people criticise Celtic for being scottish.. maybe the league is crap, but Celtic arent.. if they were why would southampton, norwhich, reading want hooper? why would villa and liverpool want ki ? why would man utd want izaguirre and kayal? anyone can criticise the league but everyone knows celtic are a decent team, so spend your time criticising teams in your own league.Right the premier league has better teams than the spl there's no need to point this out every time a Scottish team or player from a Scottish club is mentioned, as for hooper hes a very talented poacher, scored a few past my team when he was at Scunthorpe. But he does need to prove that he can score goal against better quality defenders and keepers before he gets picked for a major tournamentClearly stokes isnt one of our best player do you ever watch celtic games and shaun maloney couldnt even make it in celtic first team and hes one of wigans key player hate it when cooky english fans think epl amazingSimple better opposition more to prove better players around you better results ie maloney. Hooper is a good finisher granted but better than Rooney, wellbeck, young, defoe, and the rest no chance pal, he' ll be off ski to England if not now then jan when you've nothing to play for except the league and tin pot cups with little or no oppositionWho really gives a toss about England? Why should anyone outside England give a rats a$$ about their team. They are delusional and have some bizarre air of superiority which they have never come close to justifying. They will fail miserably as usual. Does Hooper have an Irish Granny? lol. As far as Foster goes. I really would love England to pick him. He is a big tube. Please pick himMate! Nothing to play for, if you don't play in either the top 2 man u Or man city he will have nothing to play for league wise, and correct me if I'm wrong but your 3rd team finished 16 points behind 2nd place. Don't even get me started on how much money was spent by the top 4 last season on transfers, if half that money was available for the Scottish league all 12 teams would be in a much better position.
But never mind, fifa fair play and monetary rules kick in soon, so all those clubs that are hundreds of millions in dept will soon find it difficult to buy the 40m player when there income is 20m.

If your reading, Qpr,wigan, or any other team that Finnish outside the top 4 played in the financial climate that the Scottish teams have to keep to they would be no better than what's in Scotland and that's a fact.I just laugh at these english tts going on about out league focus on your own god dam teams celtic has a great team and well said above why would all your top teams be wonting our players that cause there good so before you comment focus on your own teamThe spl is a total joke. It is worse than league one. Celtic are a championship team. Scoring goals in the spl does not show you are a good striker. This was shown perfectly by fran sandaza who, while playing for brighton in LEAGUE 1 could barely get a game, let alone a goal. However, when he was chucked into the spl, he promptly became one of the top scorers!
However, hooper is miles better than Carroll!Ed001...for you to say Hooper is lazy and average is just wrong,i could hear your epl higher thinking in what you said. Hooper is always running back to mid to help out, he picks up the long passes with nice touch and holds off the defence and always finds a player which opens up play and always seems to make the right pass then runs to the box.
for England not to give him a place is just showing that they are happy to keep to the normal plan which hasnt worked out for yous at all in previous years. It doesnt matter what league he plays in he has talent and knows how to score(i cant wait to see what all epl fans would say if Rhodes signs for Celtic, would they say he is a crapy player after over a year talking him up as a superstar? because Celtic would crush any league 1,2, championship and lower table epl teams) and he showed that he can play against well defensive clubs and top players as he did in europa league against the winners and la liga leaders. only one other player scored more then him this year and that was rvp, and if you say it is because the spl is crap then why is it that not other stickers are scoring so much? jelivic seems to be tearing it up when yous said he could not,and he got most of his goals from pen in spl. you epl fans need to open your eyes up, as another said above, yes the spl is not the best but Celtic is no small club and they get the best players in the land that they can,the players that want to win and develop and who dont just look for a pay day, and epl are always calling for our players and our crap players seem to do well in epl. go and watch some highlights of our season and see the goals and you would see how good they are and Hooper is always in the right place.
if carrol got into the club i dont know how hooper did not, carrol is good in th air but just cant score where hooper just needs a chances and more then not it would be in the back of the net, we are happy to have him and his goals and in a year maybe all you epl ppl would see it to when he leaves for a bigger club maybe not in the epl but in spain or else where and yous would be kicking yourself {Ed001's Note - actually I think Rhodes is nowhere near as good as Hooper. But your ridiculous talk about Hooper's great touch, he has far from a great touch, he is very lazy, he offers very little outside the box. Jelavic, in my opinion, is a far better all round player than Hooper, much as I hate to admit it, as he is at Everton now! His issue is his dummy throwing when things aren't exactly as he wants and a lack of pace.}All you disillusional England fans what r u's talking about? Gary hooper is a tremendous player, he scored 28 goals in the championship the same season andy Carroll scored 6! He has scored 50 goals for celtic in 2 seasons while being hampered with injurys! Look how jelavic has done for everton in half a season, England will just play the long ball with andy Carroll in the team! As for Forster, much better than calamity green, these Celtic players also have european experience unlike Carroll n green! Stop turning ur noses up at the Scottish game! More n more off ur teams r coming up here n buying our players so what does that say! If Celtic were to get into the premiership they would hold there own no problems! A few years with ur finances we would be challenging to win it!

Byars38625 {Ed001's Note - how can you compare Gary Hooper's goal record at Scunthorpe with Carroll's at Newcastle in that season? Hooper was a fully established striker, who played 45 games that season, while Carroll was just pushing into the team and made 14 appearances. Are you really that desperate to prove how great Hooper is?}I know what ur saying ed mate, I know hoopers first touch isn't great and he can be lazy but he's a predator in the box and they can be hard to find! Ive always admired jelavic, wish Celtic could find a gem like that! A player off his calibure would get the best out off hooper! Don't rate andy Carroll much! England will only be able to play one way when he's in the team.

Byars38625 {Ed001's Note - I do agree he is a predator, I did say that he scores goals, I just wish he would do more out of the box, then he would be already in the England side now.}Ed001 I take on board what you say about Hooper! He def needs to work on his touch and his work rate, but he is a fantastic little striker! He's strong as an ox for his height and his finishing is fantastic, he rarely misses a chance! Also to those who say he only scores against mickey mouse oppositions what about his goals in Europe against Lyon,Braga(the year they reached the Europa league final), Rennes and Udinese away! They all said the same when Larsson was at Celtic, he could only do it in the SPL yet he moved to barca and helped them win the champions league! Ps I'm not comparing hooper to Larsson, just trying to make a point

Ice man {Ed001's Note - he is only 24 or so though isn't he? So he still has 3 or 4 years until he hits his peak, every chance for him to work on his touch.}Ed i think you need to go watch highlights because you are right to some point but i think you are a bit too harsh on him. the type of player your talking about sounds more like stokes, but you would see hooper helping out at mid and takeing and making smart passes to open up play. but then again i guess you have to watch the games to know, which i think is why many epl fans dont see his true play, hopefully CL can help with the problem and open ppls eyes a wee bit. {Ed001's Note - no thank you, I don't like watching highlight reels made up of the best bits of a player, even Ryan Babel looked good in those. I have watched him plenty, for Scunthorpe and Celtic, he is not good at linking play, he is not good at working back, but he will score you goals. He will score goals anywhere he goes. I think I was harsh comparing him with Kris Boyd though, because I do think he is a better player than him, I just meant he offers little outside the box, like him. I just don't think he will ever be top class, mid table Prem is his level, easy good enough for England right now though, they don't have any outstanding penalty box predators to keep him out. But he won't get a chance for England while he plays in Scotland, the level of competition he faces most weeks is just too low. He should have gone to the Euros though.}So was Larsson a mediocre player because he played in the SPL?Tbf i'd like to see HooperEd001 your comments on Hooper show some contradiction. I agree he isn't a link up player but so what! He is still only 24 and has a lot to learn. Give me a poacher who could guarantee me 20+ goals as season, all day, everyday. I think you would take that at your team in a heartbeat.

I am only drawing comparisons in style when I say this and not ability, but Gary Lineker didn't do too bad for England for someone who got a nose bleed outside the 6 yard box. Natural goalscorers are like gold dust so I am happy for Hooper to stay under the radar of English clubs for as long as he keeps banging them in for us {Ed001's Note - I would not, I never rated Lineker either, when Everton had Gray, who did link up the play well, they won the title, swopped him for Lineker and they came second. It is that simple. No good having a player who only helps the team while in the box, you have to be able to get it there first! Rush could score goals better than anyone, but he also got involved in the build up, as well as being the first line of defence harrying defenders. Hooper needs to do more for me.} say he dosent do much and only stays in the box but you also say you would never watch a spl game because it is to boring or campaired to league 2(as you mentioned many of times before) so you dont get to see what he does in a game week in week out. but it dosent matter because epl fans dont see this, im sure you would love him once he is in epl but i wouldnt be surprised if spain and other leagues came calling....but these are all opinions and views so it is Englands loss and Hooper as well as Foster(keeping 23 clean sheets is tuff in any league and this year Celtic lost alot of defensemen this season and with his hieght alone i think he should have been in lol). England are always taking the superstars when i think players like Hooper and utility players would help out the team more then others. with the players like Lampart and all that can give good passes and crosses for someone to run on and be sent in Hooper would score tons for England and become a hero because he just needs one chance. {Ed001's Note - I have never made any comparison of the SPL and League Two at all, I do agree though, I don't like watching the SPL, it is dire. But Hooper did play many times before he went up there you know.}Ed

You didn't rate Lineker, for Christ sake!! I know you are a Liverpool fan but come off it. He is England's second best international goalscorer, a Golden Boot winner, 40 goals in 57 games for Everton etc. etc.

I thought your Hooper comments were way off the mark but to say you never rated Lineker shows me you are much of a judge of ability. You are entitled to your opinion all the same so fair play. {Ed001's Note - how much did England win with Lineker up top? Nothing. How much did Everton, who had a fantastic team, win with him in their team? Nothing. He is one of the most over rated players in world football, hardly a great player. The fact that you rate him, shows to me your complete lack of knowledge of what it takes to be great. No wonder you rate Hooper like some kind of superhero, you don't even understand that it is a team game.}Ed

Not once did I say Hooper was a superhero, read all my comments. I said he was a good goalscorer, that's it. I think Hooper has a mountain to climb before I would even consider him in the top 20 strikers I have seen playing for Celtic in the 30 years I have been watching them, never mind so called "superhero" status. I defended him against those saying he wasn't good enough for the EPL, I personally think he could a job for someone.

By your reasoning though every England striker before and after 1966 must have been useless seeing as no trophies have been won. Rooney, Shearer, Lineker, Owen, Ian Wright, Keegan all cr@p because England haven't won anything? Jesus I can't believe I am even defending English strikers. The point being, plenty of good players have never won anything and plenty of great players have never won what they should have. You can't judge ability by medals alone. Argentina have won nothing with Messi and Northern Ireland won nothing with George Best. One man doesn't make a team, you should know that after your "team game" comments. You say I don't understand that it's a team game and you blame Lineker on Everton and England not winning anything! do you see the irony yet?

I think you will find a few Barca fans out there who think Lineker did alright when he scored 4 goals on the way to them lifting the Cup Winners Cup.

To end this all. I respect your opinion but I think we will always disagree on this. I think I hit a nerve when I said you weren't much of a judge of a player. It's a game of opinions after all. {Ed001's Note - except that you have just admitted having the same opinion as me of Hooper! What is wrong with you? Trying to be clever and you have just made a complete tit of yourself.}Gary hooper scored 30 goals in league 1 helping Scunthorpe get promoted to the Championship, then scored 20 goals while his team struggled to stay in the Championship, he still managed more goals than the 35 million Andy Carroll

Told today that Michael Bostwick could be on his way from Stevenage who have signed Dunne from Exeter as a ready made replacement. Favourites are Crystal Palace but Brighton & Hove Albion are also said to be interested. Both sent high level scouts to the play off games.(11)(4)When the only football of league standard being played on a particular Saturday is the Play off final, why send anyone but your top scouts? I bet all of the Championship had a scout there.

Glenn Hoddle now favourite - 15/8 - to take over as Norwich City manager. He feels he is ready for another challenge and hopes to guide The Canaries to a top ten finish next season. The board see him as one of their first choices as he has International experience and he will use the finances wisely to build a better squad for the season ahead. Expect him to be announced late next week on a two-year deal with a one year option.(10)(21)Lol good one he could have mystic meg as his number two theres only one man for me and his name is chris ! In mcnally we trustCould be , he has God on his side might be a big helpNo Chance!I hope this is not true. Thanks but no thanksWho told you this? Eileen Drewery? lolNot a chance..........he's been out of football management for too long and a lot of the young up and coming players don't even know who he is. Also the fans will hate him because of his stupid disabled believes.Christ, I would not wish Glenn Hoddle upon any club, not even Leeds. Worst manager Wolves ever had.

IanGet real - Norwich will not go anywhere near Hoddle, you will be telling me next they will go for Roy Keane, the reality is they will likely go for Mackay at Cardiff, Hughton at Birmingham or Lee Clark or even offer Culverhouse a chance to step up to management, with perhaps Clark coming in as 1st team coach.The man,s a dinosaur,no room for him or his ideas in the modern game, jog on hoddle.He will take you down factTop 10 finish!! Norwich will do well to stay up

Southampton to bid 2million for millwalls liam trotter. Source sky sports and the sun.

but I don't think signing Championship
players will be a good move if we want to stay in the Prem,just feel we need good
classy experience Prem players to come in.Well look at norwich they bought good championship players now look at themTrotter should be playing for Charlton nil, I dont know weather he would do it for Chairman Slater tho!Yeah,lost their good manager, and a very good hard to replace striker looks to be on his way.Trotts fast! he's got the lot but he's a Rolls Royce and they aint fast..........well not the ones I can affordTrotter is a very good player on his day and can be worth 4/5m on his day but has been very inconsistant this season.

Cardiff have offered 850,000(16)(9)Why join Bristol they are awfulBecause as bad as Bristol City are, Coventry are worse!Because he used to play for them and still has friends at the club!Because his wife to be is Bristolian

That would make senseBecause he recently got married just down the m4 in portishead and thats where his new wifes family is and he still has alot of mates in the area.How are bristol city awful? it was just a bad season.. 3 top half finishes and a playoff final in the last 5 seasons. but look at the end of last season, 8 unbeaten and 2 defeats in the last 12! cant be that bad plus theres better options than keogh! Amougou and McManus to name 2McManus as club cpatian as wellBelievable IMO. Person up though, your wrong. He didn't get married in Portishead, he got married in Somerset. I happened to be working at the wedding, players such as David Noble was also there. I'd take him back..

I've heard its worrying times in newcastle with the following leaving.
Ba Tottenham
Cisse Madrid
Colochini city
Tiote chelsea
Krul tottenham
Cabaye arsenal(27)(32)Can see ba and cabaye going not sure about cisse going to madrid thoughWhy would Cisse go to Madrid he would just be a bench warmerLoad of rubbish. Most likely Ba. All the rest why would cisse n cabaye leave after one season in which Europe has been achieved, moving up. krul to spurs is likely eventually to replace Brad Friedal but not for a few years and he just signed a 5 year deal. so big money. And collo just signed a new 5 year deal i think in the last season or 4 years at least. Stop talking rubbish.Its just what I've seen on various site, most off ssnContracts mean nothing, all of these players will leave, they're too good for a team like noocarsleCity after colo so money no object 2 prem teams in battle for tiote sky sports cisse proved goal scorer why not join madrid double wages ba will leave and take half the 7m fee with him ashley will cash in and tell car to find cheap replacementsThey would be stupidly rich selling that lot. They could buy decent replacements so even if this is true I wouldn't panic if I was a Newcastle fan!The longer the contracts the bigger the fee the clubs have to paySame sky sports news linking city with thiago silva. N collo although 29 would warrant at least 13 mill to be sold, plenty for replacement. chelsea i doubt would look at Ba with the strikers they have coming through n looking to buy. Cabaye potentially is the cheapest of the lot to go, so would be a concern. But he would only leave for a united, Bayern, Arsenal. Top team guaranteeing top footy. But Newcastle have plent of money now n plenty coming thorugh so should be looking all right evn with maybe 2 losses out of the bunch. Up the toonYeah sell more than half your starting line up sounds legit, anyone want ben arfa too we're having a clear outHow can you say all these players are too good for newcastle when they are essentially the starting line up and are the very essence newcastle? the entire team is too good for the team? makes no sense

Chris Martin to Nottingham Forest for 1.5mil {Ed013's Note - Coldplay won't be happy!}(6)(22)Forest have no money, they owe the Doughty estate £75m and they are losing £1m pound a month. They cannot afford to spend £1 on a player never mind £1.5m1.5m - they haven't got 150,000 to their nameJust to clarify forest do not owe 75 million it was a personal investment by mr doughty from his own wealth,he has funded us again for the coming season with 25 million to honour is agreaments,true we cnt go buying players or even offer any new contracts until investors are found,but owing 75 million is untrue.Lol you don't pay owners back its not like borrowing from a bank
they pump money in to the club expecting to make profit through their investmentEdp (local paper) last week that round about 450.000 would be enough. We would love u to pay 1.5 million. As norwich fan i would like him to stay. Ncfc matt25 million does not have to be repaid but 55 million of it does, so if anybody is silly enough to buy florrest they have to buy that debt as well

Southampton are plotting a £2m raid for Millwall's 23-year-old midfielder Liam Trotter, who has also been linked with Fulham and Sunderland.(15)(8)As Millwall value Trotter more highly than Morison, £2m isn't likely to be enough to tempt KJ to sell.This one is legit. It's been in a couple of papers. Played under NA before, this would be good, he looked lively every time I saw him last season including against us(saints).Good move imhoAlready agreed to join crawley^
Oh yeah because I'm sure he'd rather play for Crawley than in the premier league! Have a word.Who are crawleyWe should exchange players in the deal. Need to shift some deadwood. Get rid of Hammond +£2million for Trotter, done deal.Ha CRAWLEY! WTF!?
It was a joke, right?5m + Puncheon and its a deal1.5 mill and its a deal4million and billy sharp?Cant see us selling sharp if we only bought him in janYou can have trotter for £10M after you screwed us over the Punchbeon deal£4m, nothing less seeing as you can put up £7m for Jay Rodriguez

03 Jun 2012 06:56:23
Loads of rumours going round especially abut keepers to start with Green, Gomes, Robinson, Given, Foster, some lad who managed to get into the England squad despite not even playing for Birmingham (not saying he is no good) but my pick would have to be Ben Foster or Paul Robinson, money not a problem but time will tell. Defenders Chris Samba (good buy) but doubtful knew his move to Russia would be a mistake and proven by the banana incident but I still think his club won't let him go, Tiawo obviously did quite well for us last season but looks like his heart is elsewhere, Fabio not sure on him, talented yes, mentality to deal with a season at Loftus Road?? Not sure the fans will take to him. In midfield let's hope the Jenas rumour is rubbish don't want another Dyer, Diakite would be a great signing came on no end at the end of last season but something playing in my mind about those 'missed games'. Need something there just don't know what Sparky is thinking, yet. On the more attacking options Hoilett will be going elsewhere, Moses keeps on being mentioned don't see why he would join us (except for ££££) Andy Johnson however much I don't like him I see it makes sense but again he has options along with Yakubu, Owen seems to be more of a paper rumour than anything, Defoe maybe but don't think that will happen, which brings us to Del Piero, has he retired ?? is he looking for a challenge or a pay day ?? I can see the board wanting him to promote QPR's global brand (always makes me laugh) and he has undoubted talent but really can't see it happening most likely will end up in the far east or the US if he is playing on. Conclusion, who knows, last window I knew a couple of the signings that would be made, just worries me that if we don't act sooner rather than later we will miss out, we know we are not Man U or have a great drawing power for players, but in Sparky & the board we trust, I mean at least it's not Ecclestone, Briatore and the poor soul who they tell what to do!!(6)(8)Wouldn't be QPR if things were simple. Totally agree we need to act sooner rather than later and could do with sorting the Barton situation out. Also heard more rumours like Dann, Roger Johnson and Rhodes but it's more because they are likely to move somewhere rather than to QPRAre you not aware that Foster and Robinson have retired from international football so it does not matter how much you pick them unless you tell them they are No1 they would not play.This is a post about QPR rumours what is that post about international retirement got to do with anything, even if you thought it was about England no1 spot and only read the first part I also mentioned Gomes and Given. Never mind eh!Foster,moses and samba have all been mooted and have it from a very good source that we have made enquirys about berbatov. Diakete seems like he may have been tapped up from a club in north london.Realistic QPR assessment - you're the sort of supporter that gives the club hope and creditNot true I believe the club deserves all the credit it deserves, I honestly think we will stay up next season and develope going forward my points were people who have been rumoured and some of the sad realisms of football especially what appears to be happening with Diakite. Mostly just suggesting that we should act now as we are don't have the drawing power of the top 4-5Up on the nancy website,diakete has signed up.

Stoke Interested In Crewe's Young Attacking Player Nick Powell As He Has Not Signed For Man Utd Stoke Willing To Pay 3 Million For The Highly Talented Striker And Also Are In For Matt Jarvis John Brayford Hugo Rodallega Jermaine Defoe Scott Dann Romelu Lukaku Lets Just Wait And See What Happens(12)(14)I hope we get a few of these but not so sure about dann as he snubbed us before but he could be a replacment for huth, i would love defoe and jarvis though, come on you mighty pottersI'd like to c jarvis Defoe and lakaku he looks a right hand full and could solve our goal crisisDidnt know stoke had 30m to spendStoke have more than 30 mill if they want... There owner is worth £800 mill hahaStoke owner has more money and time for the club than most owners the only problem is that is wants to see results with a manager that likes to while and deal with 20-30mil a sumerStoke are NOT after Nick Powell. Defoe is looking a possible go-er if deals happen elsewhere and a deal was agreed in Jan. Stoke agreed a fee with Jarvis to come but Jerome was part of the deal and he turned down Wolves as Whelan did last Jan.Wouldnt want to see jerome go, he looks sharp when he comes on, and could defo fill the fuller gapNick powell to stoke keep dreaming

Yeovil taking a look at Danny Shittu to partner Richard Hinds next season... although there are concerns over the lack of pace at the back and it would not be a surprise to see a loan signing take that position instead...

Yeovil have also enquired about the availability of a return for the want-away left-back Nathan Smith from Chesterfield... after a disappointing season, the demand could be estimated around 35k but on their budget this is unlikely to happen before July...

Another on-going question is the striking partner for Reid signed today. expect news surrounding Izale Mcleod (released - Barnet), Freddy Eastwood (released - Coventry), David Clarkson and Danny Haynes on possible loan deals...(7)(6)Yeovil might be able to pay for smith if they win npower fanpower which they were top of when i last lookedAgree with the above

Bristol will announce the signing of left back Paul Dixon early next week. The robins are also hot on the trail of 4 more players. With 2 players according to my source close to signing.


Paul Dixon, Dundee Utd, £0
Mustapha Carayol, Bristol Rovers, £1m
Heidar Helguson, QPR, £300,000
Jody Morris, St Johnstone, £300,000
Matt Derbyshire, Forest, LOAN
Youl Mawene, Aberdeen, £0(3)(12)Dixon is retiring if not he is joining morton fcDixon - yes think its happening
Carayol - club have already said no on that one
Helguson - maybe as they do need that type of striker
Morris - linked in January to him just because he played for DM at St Johnstone
Derbyshire - maybe if Forest decide to cut their losses
Mawene - no wayIsn't Morris a free agent.. So no fee.
Blows this rumour out of the waterMustapha Carayol will not be leaving rovers without a chance ! so many clubs have come in for him and he wont say yes to anyone and Mcghee i dont think will let him goDerbyshire - lol, let me know where and when you want him, I'll gladly drive him down to you for free.Heidar helguson QPR'S top goal scorer wasnt in the team end of the season purely because of injury,300,000 dunno who you get the info off but and a mil to that and its more believable.


03 Jun 2012 01:30:18
Crystal Palace to sign Gary MacKenzie from MK Dons and Paul McShane on a season long loan from Hull.(7)(2)Mcshane is out of contract and is joining palace permintPalace paying the Dons to take MacKenzie? Excellent news if true.McShane is not out of contract, but has one year to run at 20k+ a week. So he would be unlikely to join Palace at half of that. And Hull would be unlikely to loan him out while his contract expires.MacKenzie is not going


03 Jun 2012 00:51:35
Sheffield Wednesday to announce a Gardner on Monday and are in talks with an unnamed striker this weekend after having a bid accepted. All I know is that it is not Maguire from Derby at this stage. {Ed013's Note - I thought they already had a groundsman!}(8)(3)A new gardner? back page stuffGardner is injury prone he cant play more than about 30 games a season03 Jun 2012 10:26:07
Rob Jones managed 32 league games last season, Buxton managed 36

So if Gardner hits the 30 mark we should be happy imo, as shown above two our mainstays from last season managed that amount. Gardner is a cut above (no pun intended) what we have currently for me, look at the praise he had from palace fans for example.Better off signing Charlie Dimmock! She got ground force! LolGardner is quality palaces best defender last season gardner llerra lee buxton reda johnson beevers rob jones just need back up CH and LBCloud cuckoo land do you sit there and make these upThis is true Gardner has signed a contractThis would of happened but Gardner did not pass his medical and therefore Sheff Wed will not sign him


03 Jun 2012 00:50:20
Oldam Athletic youth team left back, Alexander Lodger, is expected to join Bristol Rovers on a free transfer in the coming week. Barnet youth team striker, Kamil Kaczmaz is also in talks with the Bristol club, aswell as former Northampton Town youth team centre half Daniel Elliott, who has completed a years suspension from football due to failing a drugs test, due to reported use of a controlled substance. These signings are set to be Bristols first summer signings.(1)(7)


03 Jun 2012 00:44:49
Luton Town manager Paul Buckle is expected to announce two new singings next week. He will bring forward Chris Zebroski, and midfielder Craig Stanley to Luton from former club Bristol Rovers. A fee of around £10,000 is reported to have been accepted for Zebroski, however Stanley is expected to arrive on a free transfer.(9)(4)


03 Jun 2012 00:40:38
James Constable has agreed a 3 year, £3,000 per week contract with Bristol Rovers. Constable is set to move to Bristol for a reported fee of around 185k. The deal is expected to be completed late next week. Constable grew up around the Bristol area, and is reported to have watched and supported Bristol Rovers as youngster. He is reported to have asked for the number 10 shirt.(4)(20)It will be a lot more than 185k for constable and i think if he was to watch the muppets down in avon he would have watched a propper side like city and not roversWhere are Rovers getting £3k per week from??Well lets hope this happensJames Constabel, to date, HAS NOT signed for Bristol Rovers or any other club. Bristol Rovers have made two bids for him and also Northamption have made an enquiry. There is no secret that the relationship with Beano and Chris Wilder is not good. Basically Beano wants to stay and fight for his place and the club he loves. Wilder wants him out....The fans - the majority want him to stay. He has been loyal, hard working and a proven scorer until the problems with Wilder. But that is nothing new for Wilder to fall out with players - there is a long list. I fear Beano will leave and if it all goes wrong for us, Wilder wont be far behind.....(The management accept that the main reason we did not finish well last season is because we were not fit and strong enough? In my books, thats a 'bye bye' management, fitness coach(es) and a big kick up the backside to certain players). How can management etc admit the shortcomings and keep there job is beyond me.Bristol havent made a bid bristol rovers have!


03 Jun 2012 00:37:21
Marvin Bartley will be going back to Bournemouth as part exchange for Marc Pugh. Also fee in region of 350k.(6)(12)No chance of Marvin coming back to Bournemouth. Lets just say, he and the Chairman don't see eye to eye.I can really believe this, Bournemouth have recently signed 2 attacking wing players (Gabban and McQuoid) who can do the job that Pugh does. We need to have back the job that Bartley can do in the sense of a semi defensive, box to box, tackling midfielder.Bartley wont be back at afcb he hates mitchell for a start and second he seems pretty happy up north, coming from an afcb fanThis is a none starter as everybody down here knows that him and Mr Mitchell traded a few blows when he forced his hand with a move to burnley. Would be great but won't happenMy cousin is going out with marvin and he said he was forced to leave bournemouth. He loves bournemouth very much and would love to come back but without eddie being there.


03 Jun 2012 00:21:14
Swansea have announced the shortlist of managers they want to appoint after Brendon Rodgers left the club to be the new Liverpool manager. The managers are:
Rafa Benitez (no team)
Roberto Martinez (Wigan)
Simon Grayson (Huddersfield)
Gus Poyet (Brighton)
Paul Dickov (Oldham)
Mark Hughes (QPR)(3)(34)Heard similar rumours surrounding Benitez due to the very positive financial state of the club they feel the desire to branch out as there are big shoes to fill and the importance of a good manager is almost more important than the players in the prem... but im afraid the other candidates you list are not in the running but Holloway is another possible name to be thrown inUmm, what about jones? You know, the guy you are in talks with !Do not rule out Chris Hughton.Benitez - you're having a Giraffe
Martinez is settled at Wigan
Poyet won't leave Brighton
You couldn't match Hughes salary at QPR

Your new manager is JonesI really hope you're correct, Laudrup is by far the best candidate in my opinion and would not only have a good chance of persuading Gylfi to sign but would impress other prospective signings in a way theother names mentioned could not. He does not fit the Board's oft mentioned 'young and hungry' profile though, and more importantly has he ever expressed any desire to manage in the premier league. Let's hope so.Hughes would be a disaster anyhow. He has achieved very little and spent quite a lot of cash.Hughes wouldn't leave anyway. QPR have far more potential.Jones talks have broken downWhy would poyet give to a small town in Cardiff like swanseaTalks between Jones and Swansea have broken down due a sufficient amount of money for the the transfer budget that Swansea put in place. Dickov could actually leave latics for Swansea due to the good attacking football he has got his players to use this past season but the favourite at the moment looks like rafa benitezThe fans would never have Martinez back after the way he left the Swans!I said last week when a certain mr laudrup was at 20/1 that he would need to be considered. And would you believe it but the odds on Laudrup have dropped like a stone in water. He is now 2nd favourite at a nice 3/1. No compensation to be paid as he is out of work. No change to the footballing philosophy as playe the same sort of football. I really do NOT want Ian Holloway otherwise we change everything.Dickov good attacking football?
Don't think so. Check out our results from the second half of the last two seasons in which Dickov has been in charge..
A lot of HOOOOOOOF is used under Dickov.Dickov playing attacking football at oldham we finished 16th in league 1 and were lucky not to be relegatedIm a latics fan and I personally think we played decent attacking football at times but why would swansea want to have dickov as manager?Dickov is your only chance no one else would go to youWait a minute... wh would swansea want Martinez back after the way he left them?? u mean went to a bigger club in a better league with a chairman who he knows well and were he is a legend ?? People need to remember it was Martinez who got them into the championship and brendon rodgers who copied what Martinez did there... this was proven by Swansea trying to get Martinez assistant Greame Jones dispite theree being more experienced managers out there!!

And you can believe this Martinez only signed Jason Scotland from Swansea whereas Rodgers is going to rip the core of that team apart, Swansea fans will be wishing they had Martinez. {Ed001's Note - Rodgers did not copy Martinez at all, he brought his own style, Martinez left an excellent platform for it though.}Gus would be a great manager for swansea

michael laudrup to be appointed new swansea manager before the end of next week as graeme jones s out of the running.The gylfi sigurdsson deal will then be concluded as well as a couple by laudrup himself.(5)(12)I don,t mean to annoy you but Rodgers has said he plans to hyjack the sigurdsson deal on sky sports onlineSorry Swansea fans but Gylfi joined you for Brenda now he's gone you won't get him. He has no connection to the area or a love for the fans like he does at Reading. He will go to Liverpool or Reading.Would like to set the record siggi can sign for livepool but atm fee agreed wiv swans he will not join reading he does bo like it there he has friends there but has bad memories ov the fans and area whilst he is very fond of swansea that why he has been shoping for a new house tjere reading fans keep dreaming and stop being jelous plus rodgers will not intevine wiv swansea deal wiv siggo will only bid if no deal is finalised becausr sigg wants out ov hoffinhim

Kelly Youga, Ben Parker, Danny Green and Mike Grella will be Bradford City's main summer signings. They are also after James Harper after his release from Hull City. Phil Parkinson worked with him at Arsenal and rates the youngster highly.(2)(13)Harper!

He's about 31!Can't see that one, Wells has been targeted by Leicester & was with their development coach on Friday - should know my cousin coaches there. He apparently said he wants to leave as there is too much long ball for his game!Absolute bull as Nahki Wells is still on holiday!Yes he came back early - get your facts right!Got my facts right tar, Nahki's a bantam end of!Mike grella is wanted by notts county, and is more likely to go to notts than bradford for obvious reasons, no disrespectWells said set up at Bradford was no better than in Bermuda - Said training ground was embarrassing 2... fact!

Simon Grayson is planning to buy smart ias he attempts to make his Huddersfield side genuine play off contenders next season. On his wish list is a mixture of experience and youth which Grayson thinks is key for a championship sqaud.

Tommy Smith, QPR, £500,000
Theo Robinson, Derby, £1.25m
Lee Peltier, Leicester, £600,000
Marton Fulop, free transfer
Stephen Quinn, Sheff Utd, £500,000
Peter Ramage, free transfer(6)(18)Town sold Theo Robinson to Millwall a couple of years ago cos the lad was like Bambi... On ice!... Can't see us paying three times what we sold him for to bring him back! (Terrier)5 of them yes definately not theo robinsonIf Theo Robinson is worth 1.25 million i'll eat my hat, beside he hates Huddersfield , could not settle here thats why he left in the first placeAdd another £1m and you can have Robinson.Everyone there is possible except theo robinson, possible benik afobe back though, also reports of simeon jackson!Hope u get em all, certainties for relegation then,lolTheo has already stated that he's not leaving this summer... So stop making stuff upI wouldnt pay 1 pound 25 for robinson utter rubbishThis hasn't been written by a Huddersfield fan - why exactly do we need a goalkeeper?I woulnt give a natt's wotsit for theoStephen Quinn and thats itAll im saying is u can slag theo of all u want but he had 12 goals this season, and didnt start half the games and with an injury spell and still is improvingWhat about lafferty?Wouldnt mind Tommy Smith and Lee Peltier, the rest are average to say the leastI would rather have someone eat my face than have Afobe or Robinson back, both lazy and lacking in talentIf town were to sign Robinson it would be a joke


02 Jun 2012 22:34:00
Huddersfield Town are looking at Nottingham Forest left back Joel Lynch(14)(9)Would like quinn and pelts, not so sure about the others, espec robinson, wot a bag of s... he isLynch is a centre back and as forest have offered him a new contract, I can't see why he would decide to sign for Huddersfield. No disrespect


02 Jun 2012 22:18:27
Southampton to snap up Danny Murphy on a free transfer.(28)(19)He certainly ent a left back mate he's a strikerIf true he can pick a good pass with creativty which we miss sometimes last season could be a good signing if trueMidfielder!Would be the experienced head that the saints need for the midfield. Not sure about the wages side of things but is he too similar to Hammond?Not available yet - just negotiating deal^Hammond is rubbish mate, doesn't matter if they are similar, we need to put hammond on the bench or get rid of him.

Chesterfield have signed former Doncaster defender Sam Hird on a 2 year deal after his release.(9)(3)You have got a decent player there, rovers should have kept him, gool luck to him.He is too good for league 2 after watching him last season but good signing thoughAs I said previously, "ridiculous"Great signing for chesterfield ,top class defender ,no matter what anyone else says ,he is a winner and a good lad.Quality signingLoved him when he was at rovers fearless defender threw himself in front of anything he really stepped up to the plate last year, 150 games for rovers at the age of 24 I think he is, should be at a championship team or at least a league one fantastic signing I'll miss him at rovers

Paul Dickov is trying to tempt Darius Vassell to drop down a division. The two played together at City. However wages may be an issue.

Alex Cisak is staying at Oldham and won't be sold till at least January.

Kuqi, Wesolowski, Morais, Diallo, M'chanagama all set to sign new deals.

Oumare Tounkara will join after his release from Sunderland.(7)(11)If we sign Vassell, i'll eat my season ticket... Both because of the unlikelihood of it happening, and because of the inevitably massive waste of our wage budget he'd prove to be.


02 Jun 2012 21:24:40
Luton town have missed out on a couple of targets(magno viera,Alex nicholls) but are going to announce a new signing by the end of the week.

Fortune will leave WBA for Bolton for 1st team football week in week out.(7)(22)Luuk de jong would be a very good signing.


02 Jun 2012 21:18:55
Holt to stay at Norwich once the new manager takes over and gives him a 3yr deal(10)(33)Didn't the chairman say he was too old to get that long a deal?Rubbish rumour, he still has 2 years left on his current contract.At 31 Holty is too old for a new 3 year contract. He has been awesome but Arsenal did the same to Campbell, Pires, Henry et al...Wishful thinking from a doomed canary,lolMy point is; the premiership is about commercial advantage and the bottom line. Clubs are now run by accountants and the board is accountable to all its stakeholders. The sad truth is that there is no room for sentimentality anymore.


02 Jun 2012 21:14:17
Liverpool are interested in Dundee United winger Gary Mackay-Steven following Brendan Rogers' appiontment. Rogers was a fan of former Liverpool trainee Mackay-Steven while at Swansea. Mackay-Steven who signed for Dundee United last year has been shortlisted for the Team GB Olympic football team. {Ed001's Note - ex-Liverpool winger Gary Mackay-Steven? Or is there another one?}(4)(17)Yes mackay-steven used to play for liverpool {Ed001's Note - cheers, just wondered if I was thinking of the right lad, in which case it is very doubtful he would return.}Think the Ed is thinking of Gary Taylor-Fletcher.

Gary Mackay-Steven does indeed play for Dundee United. {Ed001's Note - nope, I was defo thinking of Mackay-Steven, Liverpool signed him from Ross County. I was just checking there wasn't another one. I know Taylor-Fletcher plays for Blackpool, Ed003 would never let me forget it!}This guy has some proper talent. think he needs a year or two still at united to strengthen his overall game (like conway did. conway worked so hard off the pitch in working out to gain upper body strength which mackay steven lacks). think gms needs to also work on fitness but in 5 years time he should be playing at a top club in england.

Swindon to sign lee holmes and mceverly, after successful loan spells.(1)(20)The same Lee Holmes who has signed for Preston?Swindon WON'T be signing Lee Holmes.....he has recently signed for Preston North EndWRONG! Holmes has already signed for Preston.Deary me, Holmes signed for PNE last week, get with the times. O'Kane will be a Swindon playerAnother rumour with no research/evidence... Yeovil also have no money and Lee Holmes has a new club now in PNE...Holmes has already signed for PrestonThe same Lee Holmes that regretted going to Swindon....Preston have got a great looking team form the coming season and have bought well. Not a PNE fan but hope they do well.The person who sated regretted coming to Town is obviously another person Oxford fan. he went to preston you person as he wanted a six figure signing on fee and we werent prepared to pay it and preston were and STFC made the right decision in not paying it. so get a life you sad jealous oxford fan and worry about your own team who are falling apart.Ah preston looking forward to another season of mid table mediocrity there

It is understood that he wishes for a new challenge with a team in Europe.(8)(9)New challenges with a team in Europe? So that's just Newcastle and Tottenham, then.Got to get at least 8 mill for him. He is contracted to 2015. Don't want to lose him but we could get 2 good players in replacement. Thinking Ben Foster and Jermain Defoe....None of these could afford him plus step down in ambition.Papertalk page fillers, Mulumbu still on hols,just more bulls££t from idle journalistsMulumbu staying put to important to loseLiverpool are in europe from carling cup winCheck out his twitter comment 2 weeks ago, " chelsea, liverpool or Newcastle next season...".

He is very happy at Swindon and working for PDC....HE has said this time and again both publicly and privately to friends.

Gary Roberts in talks with Sheffield Wednesday & an uknown club. Rumours are it's Bournemouth.(7)(5)There was talk on here earlier thats hes allready signed a 2 year deal with wednesdayRoberts was at Hillsborough yesterday as we saw him getting out of his car. Cant say if hes signed or not but definitely in talksCan't see it. Roberts wants to stay up north. If Pugh was to leave and Roberts was offered big money, then maybe there was a small chance.Looks like wednesday have won the race for him, would have loved him at bournemouth

Barnsley I hear.


02 Jun 2012 20:02:14
Liam Trotter to sign for Peterborough after Millwall accepted an offer of £1.2m(2)(24)You must be joking!posh!!Rubbish.Absolute rubbish. Why would he go to posh who are much worse than Millwall and don't have any moneyWith a name like Trotter he should be playing for Charlton nil, not sure if he would play for Chairman Slater though.This is the worst rumor i've ever heard,why would he want to go to a club like peterbourgh who are not as good as millwall and there average attendance is 5,000,and they probably dont have 1.2 million anywayTo be fair as a Millwall fan, I would not be that sad to see Trotter go, and I'd probably take 1.5 million for him. Last season he was average at best and pedestrian at worst. I dont know how long on his contract is left but KJ should cash in and raid the lower leagues for a replacement.Complete nonsense.Southampton and fulham considering bids of over 2 million so think you need to stop playing football managerThis is actually hilarious. Not the rumour but the replies from the Millwall fans. You are so right I mean yeah we do only get 5,000 a week lol and yeah again you are spot on that we cannot afford £1.2m. What a load of disrespectful bs. Posh have well over £11m in the bank, and MacAnthony has told Fergie he doesn't mind if he wants to spend every penny. You Millwall fans are definitely 100% more stupid than this rumour.You said that you could not afford Liam Trotter and then you go and say 'we have 11 million in the bank' hah! plus Trotter would never go to you, if he leaves it'll be for the Premership and i wish him the best of luck wherever he goes! his staying with us anyway, jackett has said that he is offering him an improved contact.Premiership or peterborough ummm let me think about that one oh my days get real posh you are nomarks and will always be thatMillwall just a small club in east of London im afraid[and with little money to spend]unlike the mighty POSH!'Millwall just a small club in east london'?? SOUTH LONDON.. get your facts right!Not really with little money too spend. 500k on Keogh in January. 200k rising to 500k for Shane Lowry. 200k plus add ons in August. 300k on a brand new pitch (Wembley/Emirates style). Maloney from Bournmouth. so its not that we have got no money to spend, we spend wisely. not splashing out 3m for mackail smith no get 9 goalsLet me settle this lads apparently millwall are a small team from east london (south london duh) with no money unlike the mighty posh (ha ha) but where did the mighty posh finish this season oh my days end of argumentFace palm!, east london?, if your going to say something make sure you know what your going on about.Have you all gone POSH overnite east to south who cares!Posh didnt buy craig mackail smith for 3m we sold him for 3m get your facts rightDidnt say that POSH brought him, just stating that you dont need to spend big money to get a player. was just using mackail smith as an example. so read the post before you comment.

Jack Hobbs from Hull(9)(10)Why in the name of god would Hobbs go to Barnsley!!!!!!!Jack Hobbs?? U having a laugh he is way to good for a team that was nearly relagated last season!Nearly but notHobbs and Chester are the best 2 defenders in the championship who play for a team capable of promotion, so why would Hobbs go to a team that is going to get relegatedCan not see Halford signing up for another relegation scrap.Halfords been tweeting leeds fans about joining sounds like a done deal

charlton are in talks with preston over a possible swap deal with coutts going to charlton and matt taylor going to preston(4)(5)Matt taylor played 3/4 of the season without fault and really set the distance from his Exeter status and orchestrated the defence with Morrison all season. if any thing should stay at charlton untill he gets a coaching role he is a really good old fashioned defender who has tasted bitter and sweet throughtout his carrer (coutts didnt really impress tbh this season) why go for coutt's when there is a possible move for jacob butterfield being thrown aroundI think someone has put two and two together and made five.Coutts played very well last season, but he did chuck his dummy out of the pram a couple of times.^ lol ^

To repeat, so people stop just pulling stories out of thin air because they want it to happen, for one reason or another.
Holts agent stated on BBC RN yesterday that Holt will not be going to Villa, if he is to leave Norwich.(8)(7)Don't you know the modus operandi of this site? Unless there's a shred of fact to base your rumours on, wish-fulfilling stories pulled out of thin air are what makes up this place.Holt following lambert to villa,guaranteed

Tony Mowbray to offer Middlesbrough born former player Jonathan woodgate a two year deal after his release from Stoke City.(11)(7)I thought stoke had offered woodgate a new dealThat's kind of embarrassing for you because he hasn't been released and has infact signed a contract extension.Woodgate iam a boro fan what a joke no way wud we go that low the bloke is a joke and yes he still with stoke neva wud we have him back with his track reccord in the boro haha.Not sure what the last post meant- some king of bizarre attempt at an ancient form of English but Woodgate has signed a 12 month extension.Apparently he was mulling over a 12 month extension with stoke or a 2 year deal with boro, he chose stoke.

As Norwich have rejected Holt a new contract it looks likely that he will either go to Villa and join his old boss Paul Lambert. He might go to Southampton but it looks like they are getting Jay Rodriguez and maybe Hooper. So him going to Southampton is not very likely.(11)(12)Why would Saints want him? Lambert is streets ahead of Holt, and a year younger. So, we will add to Lambert, but not a poorer version of him!I hope Saints get none of these. Holt is too similar to Lambert but not as good IMO. The way he has acted in the last few weeks shows he has an ego too and we don't need that. Hooper is insanely overpriced by his club. For 10 million then can go walk. Half that and we're getting sensible and that's a possibility. Jay Rod is the best fit but his apparent lack of commitment is worrying. Not sure he wants to move south? What is he 12 yrs old? Man up and play some football or stay in the champ or bench warm for a northern prem team. I'd gamble on Jordan Rhodes or look further afield!Why would we want to have Holt, when we have Lambert who is younger, and more technically gifted than him? Nonsense.What is the obsession with Lambert being better than Holt they are pretty much identical. If Lambert grabs 20 league goals next season then I will agree. Right now the benefit of the doubt has to go to the guy who proved he can play in the PLHe is a more technically gifted player - yet Holt may actually be a bit quicker of the ground. Whether he scores more goals than Holt did, remains to be seen.Guys he said that its not likely for Holt to go to Southampton not that Southampton want him.Holt and Lambert used to be strike partners, they could again .....If you look at their goalscoring stats in all the leagues, Lambert has performed better

In League 2: Lambert 22 goals in 46 games, Holt 20 goals in 43 games

In League 1: Lambert 30 goals in 45, Holt 24 goals in 39

In Championship: Lambert 27 goals in 39, Holt 21 goals in 45.

Based on these stats I'd say Lambert is better, and I reckon his assists will also be higher. Whether he'll be able to outperform Holt next year, I reckon he can.Saints don't want or need holt.

Ps lambert has out scored holt every season they've played in the same division. And he doesn't throw his toys out when he doesn't get what he wants.League 1 and League 2 there is less than 10% difference in goals per game which would be considered statistically insignificant.
Secondly other variable would be involved include the variance in opponents as well as the style of football played by the team and the quality of the team they played on.Holt got 30 league one goals for a start and he got a lot of goals for not very good teams like wycombe so you are wrong in saying lamberts betterYour saying lambert younger by about 8 monts

Neither of which is correct.Soz wit feeder club fact.Of course you can have a feeder club that's nonsense!

Norwich look to appoint a new manager as quickly as possible with many bosses already handing in requests and CV's. The favourites look to be out of:
1. Lee Clark
2. Ian Culverhouse
3. Chris Hughton
4. Gus Poyet
5. Karl Robinson
6. Ian Holloway
and others(11)(10)1) hoping that list isn't in order or there might be something wrong with you.
2) are you a cardif fan? Malky is definitely in the top 33) Culverhouse is coming to villa with lambert isnt he??Possibly, probably depends on who is coming in to Norwich. He hasn't been mentioned in any of the deals, but Culverhouse's connections are with Norwich, not Lambert (He basically really only ever played for us.) Will be interesting to see how Lambert does without him, as many consider him to be the one that scouted the young players that worked well for norwich.Paul lambert said he to villa board that he want ian culverhouse his assistant it said on sky sports yesterday and im a norwich fan great loss

Norwich City's In's and Out's


Ruddy - £2.3M - QPR
Bennet - £2M - Aston Villa
Crofts - £700k - Cardiff
Jackson - £1M - West Ham
Holt - £2M - Aston Villa


Hesky - Free
Healy - £300k - Celtic
Rhodes - £3M - Huddersfield
Gordon - Free
Stearman - £800k - Wolves
Bruce - £400k - Leeds
Bullard - £100k - Ipswich

Nothing Certain, just the deals being mentioned inside the club(5)(54)Rhodes 3 million whats that for his armIf £3m is the deal being mentioned within the club for Rhodes I would suggest you shy away from Dehlia's home brew.
Fantasy football!How did they come up with this list with no manager?Healy Celtic???If this is a list of players to get, then they are looking for huge bargains, and it was probably the board that made it.

Cheesy LemonRuddy, Bennet, Holt staying at norwich, as for the in list Rhodes is the only decent player on the list and he is overpriced......bring in Holloway with Culverhouse as number 2Think this might be a very deluded person.
why would Ruddy go? Norwich are lacking anyone in his class, and any clubs that would probably need him are not good enough for him.
bennet would be a good shout, unless you mean Ryan Bennet. He has done very well with Norwich and is likely to stay. not to mention Norwich are unlikely to do much if any business with Villa this season.
Jackson will be playing a lot more this season and is unlikely to leave.
Holt has stated he wants to leave due to no extension on his contract, now that this is public, it is most likely going to be corrected by both parties. If he is to leave, norwich would rather let him sit in the reserves than sell for just 2 million.

the ins:
Hesky - waste of wages
Healy - maybe, but price is very low, and he probably wouldn't come due to lack of playing time
Rhodes - probably around 2x that, Norwich will try to grab for 6m if holt is gone.
stearman - no need for him at Norwich
Bruce - Only leeds player on Norwich's radar is Snod
Bullard - ... you having a laugh?Ruddy is about the only keeper we haven't been mentioned with fair to say the list is an epic failApart from there being no manager in place to cone up with this list, the figures are miles off.Lol you an ipswich fan by any chance main poster? Prices and players you're quoting both in and out are beyond laughable.Canaries already rejected £4.5m bid from West Ham for Holt. Rhodes is valued at £8m.

Villa83The only credible transfer out on this list is Crofts, The chairman has already stated that none of the 1st team squad are available for sale and that even includes Crofts, although he struggled to get in the side at all in 2nd half of the season, so I suspect he could be soldRhodes 8 million aha he was st at wembley v sufc all you have to do is man mark him and he does f all"Rhodes is valued at £8m"

If anybody pays that for him I would be very surprised, 5 mill would be more realistic.
By the time norwich get a new manager he will have gone anyway.There is no Healy at Celtic he is at rangers and he is rubbish doesn't even get a gameRhodes will be another jermaine beckford - not the best lets be realistic.Rhodes st at wembley! What a stupid text. What about the other 50 odd games he played. Your tactical genius must be unique otherwise the other league 1 clubs would have done that. Oh, they did! Man marked by 3 sufc players most of the time.£3 mill is good price for striker only proven at l1 level,what is wrong with deluded Huddersfield fans?Rhodes will be ecstatic to be another beckford who scored 10 gls in 22 prem'Deluded' Huddersfield fans? Who do you support? Why are you getting so wound up? Bit jealous we're going to get a lot of money for a player?When do you want stearman i will deliver him free if you will take ward and henry for freeWhy would Huddersfield sell Rhodes for £3 million when they already turned down an offer of £4mil in January from West Ham.

Five clubs are in the hunt for lower league hot shot Izale McLeod these are Bristol Rovers, Plymouth, Luton, Cheltenham and Oldham. Mcleod is keen to remain near his Milton Keynes home.(8)(1)Good signings but although they are free agents their wages will still be a problemI don't imagine Cheltenham could pay his wages, we wouldn't drop down a league to play for Luton, Plymouth and Oldham are probably too far for him to travel so if this is true, I can only see Bristol snatching him.How true is this?Bristol wont but bristol rovers might

Malky Mackay to take over at Norwich with Lee Clark replacing him at Cardiff(16)(15)Mackay up there as far as the bookies are concerned but not enough experience for the NCFC Board-and none of Prem. Non-starter.I hope this is true. Cardiff fans will finally know what is like to be shafted by their own manager. I'm sure Whittingham and a few others will follow him.Malkey mackay said he intends to focus on cardiff and cardiff would want to much compensation that norwich will not pay when you can get lee clark or steve bruce on a freeLambert said he was focused on Norwich too, look where that got them. Steve Bruce wouldn't get the job due to the fans attitude. and Lee Clark is unlikely. it's between Hughton and MalkyTo the 3rd comment Cardiff have not done anything worong to you so why the hate?. As you said there is no loyalty in football so why be loyal to his norwich past and go back?Norwich please stop making up these rumors cardiff fans get on well with norwich fans on't ruin it over this thanksThe 2nd coment from top to bottom Cardiff City has already experienced that and seems you are this bitter you must be a watford fan, yes malky came to us and took some of your staff and a good player (Cowie) but you got to get on with it because acting the way you are is very pathetic

going out on loan next season.
Seems to be out of favour and would go almost anywhere to get first team football.
Mind you is out off dicaios' reach(11)(6)With one season left before he's free to leave do you really think they'll loan him out? He will be sold.If Swindon got Simon Cox on a season long loan they would win league 1 easily.

Gylfi Sgurdsson will not go to Reading, but Liverpool. They will offer 7.5 million pounds and much higher wages than Reading, Swansea etc. Danny Swanson has agreed a to sign for WBA. He wants to play in BPL. Hazard will join Chelsea. Keith Andrews will join Ipswich and Stuart Beavon will join Millwall. These all will happen.(13)(22)This player was on the point of becomeing a swanse player, thus if he does go to liverpool, it may not break the letter of the deal not to go afder swance player, but it certainly flys in the face of the spirit of the agreement.Whoever he signs for he has a great future ahead of him, I wish him well.

True Royal, South Coast.Higher wages but 7.5m compared to 6.8m from reading liverpool will need a higher bid readings 30% sell on fee so it'll save hoff around 2.25m if they go reading so 7.5m liverpool or 9m reading realisticlyGoing to be a great signing for someone just really hope itll be swans but even I agree that's unlikely, hopefully he's got a girlfriend or something down here that will persuade him to stay hahaGylfi Sigurdsson will not go to Liverpool because Brendan Rodgers deal with Liverpool states that he can't purchase anyone who played for Swansea last season. it doesn't say he can't purchase anyone who plays for them now.The "Brendan can't buy Swansea Players" deal does not cover Sigurdsson as he is not a Swansea player. Brendan said he would encourage Gylfi to speak with Swansea's new manager and consider the Swansea move but if he doesn't make the move to Swansea then Brendan will make a move to sign him for Liverpool.Sygurdsson is not a Swansea player and never was.He was only on loan.So Swans have no legal or moral right to dictate where he goes.
CRSigurdsson does not come under that deal, Rodgers has said if he does not want to sign for Swansea he will go for him and take him to Liverpool.Gylfi isnt a swansea player

Leeds and Huddersfield are in talks to sign Leicester City right back Lee Peltier. Around £600,000 is wanted by leicester city as Nigel Pearson wants to bring in Liam Rosenior as a replacement from Hull City(4)(9)And NorwichPearsons like a kid in a sweet shop he wants every body but he will still be a greedy man lower than a snakes belly no loyalty just greedyHe'll come back to town!Pelts told me at the weekend he is desperate to come back to town,Town can not afford pelts with the small turnover they have.can only spen so much of your £5 mill turn over on wages and will be one of smallest in championshipWe have more than £5 million in the town bank, hoyle sold his card factory for around £350 million, looks like were loaded and your team arn'tExcept we have a very rich chairman who is also a life long fan. I have no doubt he will put cash into the club at 100% risk i.e not loaned to the club therefore eligiable to be considered as part of turnover.You hudders fans do not have a clue about this new financial rule do you?wages can only be part of % of club turnover ie ticket money shirt money and deffinately not owners money and hudders owner is a pauper compared to Leicester owners.lolYe keep 'lol'in moron. Firstly, the majority of the clubs in the championship will not go anywhere near the maximum % allowed because they're so skint. With the attendance Huddersfield will get coupled with the increased money from the Championship, and the face we CAN spend the maximum % allowed because we are loaded, means we will be in a very powerfull position financially....

Beckford ain't coming back to you get over it!Pushing above your weight thereSimeon Jackson is out of contract at Norwhich...I go to most Leicester away games last season and it was easy to see that beckford is desperate to leave us to go back to leeds.even said afterwards that he will only score at elland rd in a leeds shirtv and we took him off as he was not even trying.With the anticipated investment from the yanks takeover the above list is quite realistic. Cant wait for season to start. MOT

Why would we reject 8 million and then accept 7 million?A few more goes and you might come close to the price for Zaha, COYI !
But then you still have to think about whether Wilf wants to play for Fat Sam. The long ball game does not suit him.Not a chance, he is one year into a five year contract. You will need about 8 million (plus Baldock) before CPFC even take WHU seriously!We will see! COYI

Reading FC are likely to make a move for AFC Wimbledon winger Christian Jolley. They look to strengthen and reinforce their team with both established, experienced goal scorers and young, promising playmakers.

Christian Jolley from AFC Wimbledon - £900k
Yakubu from Blackburn - £2million
Mariappa from Watford - £4million
Jordan Rhodes from Huddersfield - £2million
Jermaine Defoe from Spurs £3.4million

The Football 411(10)(28)Your prices are so far wrong, there is no credibility within these "rumours".You're so far off the mark it's unreal.

Mariappa is just over £2.5m.

Defoe wont be a perm deal. Wages too high. We have offered a season loan instead.

Rhodes will take at least £4m. Not sure it will happen as we have now bid £5.5m for Shane Long.

Jolley? What is YOUR fascination? You keep posting this all by yourself...

Yakubu is pure speculation.We already have young and promising playmakers in D'ath and taylorGet none of them no decent player would go to readingHaha Rhodes for 2 million. Are you joking? Huddersfield are a rich club, think they're guna sell him for 2 million quid? It will be at least 6 million, already turned down lots of offers around the 4-5 million markI'm a Wimbledon fan and jolly isn't worth 900k, that is laughable! Maybe 90k. He would be sold for between 100 and 200k.Huddersfield fans do need to get real about their valuation of rhodes. As a neutral id say he's worth £4m, he is not proven in any league above league 1 and league 1 defences are shambles. I dont think he'd do anything in the premier leagueLOL at "no decent player will go to Reading"

LOL at jeolous idiots wishing they'd had an owner who built the club from the ground up, slowly and sensibly, and then sold to a multi-billionaire...

Hehe :)Why do you think its Huddersfield fans who value him this high? Its everyone else chucking money at us thats why its going to be more than 4 million. We don't need to seel him because of the money already at the club, thats why clubs are having to come up with high values.Would that be the same league 1 that Ricky lambert played in 2 seasons ago. How many did he score then and how did he do last season?So he's only worth £4m is he? Well West Ham already offered £5m in Jan, and he has gone on to score many goals since then. Whilst I agree he is untried in the higher leagues, you only have to watch the guy to appreciate that he is a born goal scorer.Yes, he isn't going to frighten you with his pace, yes he won't frighten you with his build, but what he will frighten you with his ability to be in the right place and more importantly his finishing, which is outstanding. Watch his 4 goals against Sheff Wednesday earlier this season and then tell me he's only worth £4m. But please don't come back and tell me that he won't get the same space in Prem or Champioship etc as his finishing is very instinctive, quite different to say Andy Carroll who was sold for over £30m.With all these big fees going round it's pretty criminal how bad Watford are at getting the right price.You can't use Andy Carroll's price to say Jordan Rhodes should be worth more. Andy Carroll's price was inflated because he is English. No league 1 striker is worth more then £2-3 million because of the gulf in class between league 1 and the hugged leagues.Hey, as an independent I admire Reading for what they have done and how they play. Was thrilled you beat West Ham now there is a team up it's own arse believing its academy gives it a Devine status to the Premier League. See West Ham more in comparison to MK Dons as you stole a place in Premier League all those years after gutless FA did not relegate you after Tevez affair. Hope reading beat you and relegate you again next year.Sorry about this but you mean mk franchiseI doubt jolley will go for 900k! and where the hell did you get 'defoe to reading from'Rhodes were going to go to bolton for 9 million if huddersfield didnt get promoted but i really dont know how you got 2 million

Seen loads of rumours recently regarding Reading FC, most are complete rubbish. This should be comprehensive. We have been recently taken over by Thames Sports Investments. This means that we have a new owner in place, Anton Zingarevich, although he is only worth approx £650m his father will be the driving force behind the club and is worth in excess of £3bn. Reading have brought in two new Directors in Andrew Obolensky and Chris Samuelson, both are financial experts as well as football fans (AO Reading and CS no real allegiance) and are purely to advise Anton in business ventures. We have our manager committed to the club on a long term deal, although admittedly wants to manage Republic of Ireland one day, and both our Assistant Manager, Nigel Gibbs, and Director of Football, Nicky Hammond, are on long term deals. Continuity is key. We will make some signings, and will break our record transfer fee but we will not change how the club operates or bring in a massive number of new players.
We are a small club, we are however a growing club. We have an impressive strategy that has seen us build the infrastructure and playing staff in line with each other, TSI have already put a serious amount of money into the Academy, with aspirations towards Cat1, the training facilities and youth facilities, where we are linking up with several schools as well as looking at new facilities outside of Hogwood for youth players to train separately to the main team.
We are looking at bringing in 5/6 players. At a similar level to our current team, this will be to push and challenge the first team, these are players with potentially high resale and that can progress in line with the club. We will not be dropping all those that have got us to where we are.
A 'transfer budget' of £15m has been mentioned. McDermott discussed targets with Zingarevich who has given him assurances that money will be available for the right players. As is stands there is no hard and fast budget but McDermott had identified players he would like in the region of approximately £10m. Some more speculative transfer targets may increase this if any 'coups' can be pulled off.
Firstly, we have only made a few concrete bids, some have been rejected and some will not be following up. Not all of these will come but the point is we are trying:

Adrian Mariappa: £2.5m bid accepted. This was agreed over two weeks ago, Watford are releasing stories about rejected bids – Watford Observer has picked up that this may not be the case. Mariappa heard of interest before his Jamaica call up and has had provisional contract talks with Reading, it seems promising so far but he has been holding back to see if other teams come in for him, with interest from clubs like Newcastle last transfer window, but sounds very promising so far. Mariappa will be coming to Reading once he returning from International Duty, this should go through within the next fortnight.

Matthew Connolly: £900k bid lodged, player is keen to come and Reading want, QPR have said that he doesn't have a future with them. Deal is progressing.

Shane Long: £5.5m (plus add ons) – player would consider a return to Reading, girlfriend a Reading fan, mum still comes to games when WBA aren't playing (she brought her Season Ticket last season before Long left and resides locally). Long and McDermott are still close. West Brom will not consider any deal until a new manager is in place and will let the new manager decide if he wants to keep him. Long will not try to push through a deal as he has too much respect for the club that gave him his chance in the Premier League, but does want assurances he will play.

Gylfi Sigurdsson: £7.2m bid lodged and contract offered matching terms offered by Swansea. Liverpool may bid soon which is his likely destination and Swansea have more chance due to him being settled in the area and his playing style but with uncertainty around the team and manager having left Gylfi has asked for more time before committing anywhere. He was due for a medical on Thursday which has been delayed. He is now on holiday. Unlikely he'll come to Reading, but the bid is a sign of intent.

Bjorn Sigurdarson: £1m bid launched. Rejected. Lillestrom want £3.5m cash upfront. Reading are not willing to spend that much on him but are continuing to monitor and send scouts with a view to placing another bid later in the window if they have not secured a creative attacking midfielder/second striker that plays in the hole and prefers the ball on the floor – to complement Adam Le Fondre as a late sub and allow a possible 4-5-1. Everton and Wolves are monitoring as are several European teams. Sigurdarson previously said he would only leave Lillestrom for a Premier League team, otherwise he could happily spend his entire career there. Wolves could be an exception because of their manager. Everton are interested and have enquired but no formal bid launched yet.

Chris Gunter: £2m bid launched. Rejected. Same as Swansea when Rodgers was in charge. Interest from a couple of larger Premier League teams but no other bids made. Unknown as to whether Reading will follow up interest and place a further bid.

Jacob Butterfield: Contract offered, no discussions with Barnsley regarding fee so if accepted this would go to tribunal. Newcastle have offered a contract and are the likely destination. Middlesbrough also interested.

We have fielded in excess of 30 enquiries, these do include Joe Cole and a possible loan bid for Jermaine Defoe, but the likelihood of pulling any of these off are very low. We have spoken to Blackburn about Yakubu but not made a bid, yet, West Ham are his likely destination. Some of those we have spoken informally include Danny Guthrie, who is more likely to go to WBA or Aston Villa, Keith Andrews following release from West Brom. Initial enquiries to New Edubiase United about striker Emmanuel Baffour. Matt Phillips and Jordan Rhodes are also on Reading's radar but both unlikely due to fees wanted by clubs.

Reading have already brought in Garath McCleary and will continue looking for free transfers where players fit 'the Reading way'. Attitude and work ethic is key.

Lots of interest, but mostly very speculative at this stage.(16)(30)Great post from a Oxford fanYou lost me when you said Reading are a small club. They're no smaller than Middlesborough, Southampton, Fulham etc. The catchment area is huge, but the club has never had the chance it has now to capitalise on it. Now it can with the new owners and the stadium expansion.

Reading are an average size club with aspirations of becoming a top 8 club.Reading are an average size club, but highly doubt they will ever be top 8.I can't understand why reading fans keep thinking that west brom would sell Shane long. The only reason he hasn't played that much this season is through injury he's gonna play a much bigger Part for WBA next seasonWow, well there's 10 minutes of my life gone that ill never get back...thanks for that!Our first season in the prem we finished.....8th. Top 8 right there.They are a far far smaller club than Middlesbrough and Southampton know one even knew reading had a football team till you built the madejski. Youre delusional pal!I think you will find that antons father is having nothing to do with this deal which is why the due dilligence took so long as there was a conflict of stories as to how much money could be available! but never the less you still have a very rich owner and good luck to you this season!

tommo. MOTErm, it was only 5 years ago that we finished 8th in the Premier League LOL.

That isn't an Oxford fan. That's a Reading fan. I can tell immediately who it is as well, as he posts on Royals Rendezvous.Decent post, level headed approach of Reading transfer targets, interests and rumours. As a Reading fan for over 30 years I'm embarrassed by the degree of some posts on here about our new fond mega bucks status.. To all those new Reading fans we will earn the respect of natural supporters not by large-in it up, but by following the example of our manager and go about our business under the radar.Wow you finished 8th once, got relegated soon after. That doesnt make you a top 8 team, you can not finish 8th or above season after season. Much better teams than you.Same size as Southampton don't be stupid you are a small club with tiny support as for top 8 what of league 2 where your fan base deserves whufcHow many strikers do West Ham need!?To the West Ham fan above- It must of hurt to have not beaten Reading last season and then to get thrashed at home. I can see why you're bitter.Reading and mk dons are the same no fans and they think attract fans as they improve but they will always both be small clubs and that won't changeStill bitter about losing twice and the championship title last season to little Reading? if we stay up next season then our ground will be expanded so it will be bigger than Upton Park. League 2 support? my arseYes Reading are exactly like MK Dons....once a team that were uprooted from their home and moved to a giant roundabout. The other is a team that has been around since 1871 and has a long but not always successful history. Yes I see your point....idiot.Actually, I can assure you Anton's father is very much part of the deal and was also assessed by the Premier League. His assets are over £3b. He had to be cleared as well because AZ confirmed his father 'could' invest at a later date.

Matty9To be fair for years Man City have pretty much been a joke (sorry city fans but u know its true) and a Reading size team, now look at them... though granted they spent stupid money to get there. Reading decent team, well run with a following capable of filling a 24,000 seater stadium, only large big team in their county, just on outskirts of London really, no reason they cant attract the fans and do well and yeah i can't see them top 8 for a while, but again i never saw man city coming top 5 let alone winning the league so in reality its got the infrastructure there to do it, and with their history of bringing out the best in players and making them big names like doyle, sidwell, sigurdsson, long, they could attract a lot of potential talent that could grow up through the top level academy they are hoping to achieve and then have a dangerous homegrown young team on their hands that come into fruition in a few year. Just saying don't rule it out because at the end of the day, a clubs name is just that its the way the clubs run that makes clubs good and appealing and Reading do that well enough, just hoping we can join them in a few years ^^ seaguls :)2 things, u dont compare with man city, no matter what, and big names? doyle sidwell etc, thats funnyIn what world have reading been a club in same stature as man city oh yeah they both had 30k plus fans in 3rd tier of english football btw there are a lot more bigger clubs in champ then reading (leeds,sheff wed,birmingham,wolves,notts forest,etc) so dont go on as if reading are big cos they are not

Reading update:

Mariappa fee was agreed weeks ago. Watford, with Reading's permission have been leaking stories that bids have been rejected. This is to soften the blow of selling their player of the season. Mariappa is away on International Duty but will complete his £2.7m move when he returns (some of that is in add-ons)

Reading have also made WBA a £5.5m offer for striker Shane Long. It's thought that the striker and his family miss the area and Reading would like to bring him back if a deal can be done. This one is a 'watch this space' I'm afraid.

Reading have entered the race for former midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson. A few was agreed last week but the player has decided to take a holiday before making a decision on his future. Swansea have agreed terms, but the medical was postponed. Any number of clubs could now come in for him, but Reading are in the mix.

Reading 'we're' interested in a perm deal for Defoe but have baulked at the wages. They have instead made an offer for a season long loan. I have no idea if this is likely. He's on Int Duty and I doubt will make a decision until after the Euros. All you can say is Reading are trying to bring him in, whatever the outcome.

Reading have also spoken with Danny Guthrie's agent. I have no idea if anything has come of that.

Former Oldham striker Reuben Reid has signed for Yeovil(8)(6)Kinda glad to see him go always offside and a very lazy player, cant see him being a great signing. most of his goals at Oldham were penalty's anyway so he wont be a great replacement for Andy Williams.Andy williams is overrated mate, im a yeovil fan... for the number of chances he had, his conversion rate was poor... too greedy and often got lucky with poor goalkeepingSounds like a bitter yeovil fan that, the fact is williams got in positions to shoot, reid doesn't, bet he cant believe he got a 2 year deal!I agree with the statement above^^
also im a yeovil fanHe is overrated tho..
also im a Yeovil fan.Andy Williams is Defiantly overrated and tbh i dont mind that he is gone

Templeton agrees to join Southampton. Swanson looking to go to a premier league side(9)(9)Who's he?....and who does he play for?....and what position?David Templeton (born 7 January 1989 in Glasgow) is a Scottish professional association footballer. A tricky and skilful attacking player, he currently plays for Hearts in the Scottish Premier League. He's a winger.Oh god my old teacher is going to play for Saints, cant watch why would they buy my teacher :L yeah no seriously who the hell is this guy?^hearts thats all i knowDo you mean the guy at Hearts? Jesus! I hope we're setting our sights a little higher than that!I live in scotland (but a saints fan) he is not a bad player, in my opinion. Good addition if it happens.He's a decent player, more pace than intelligence and skill in my opinion though! One of those ones that puts their head down and runs!Saints dont need another head down winger, already tryna shift de ridder is a rumour, so you know!Templeton has great pace and would be a top sighing also young

yeovil town have signed former oldham striker reuben reid on a two year deal, and will join up with the squad on the 1st of july.(6)(5)Oh dear , first keanu marsh-brown and now reuben reid. Id put my house on you lot going down next year.Done the double over Oldham last year... keep that in mind before you hurl around abuse...But we take players who are bad and turn them into better players happened with Andy Williams and Dom blizzard is showing improvements plus we need back up playersVery pleased with Rueben Reid signing, when ever I have seen him play for Oldham always thought he was decent. A star in poor team tbh.Yeah, Oldham are a very poor team, I'd have my money on them going down!Can't disagree with the 'poor team' comment, but the idea that Reid was 'a star' is completely fallacious. Overweight; lazy; touch like a donkey and only ever scored penalties. You're welcome to him.Haha. A star in a poor team. lol. He's terrible, fat and always at Nando's. Your in trouble if there's a Nando's near you.I hope you have a striker that can jump and try to win a header because he dosn't try at all , but is strong and very fast and we are not a poor team we just had a poor season but got big scalps such as sheff utd away we won.Oh dear bad signing as reid is hopeless in the air and controlling the ball and can't run as he puts so much weight on over the season. As for Marsh Brown you won't change him and take a look at his history at other clubs. Dickov got rid for a reason, he got injured and came back at least 2 stone over weight. Oldham far better than yeovil and wait for their signings of a striker far better than Reid.How are oldham far better than yeovil when we did the double over you last seasonIf hes no good and doesnt cut it, our gaffer will give him the boot... hes not spineless... maybe if hes playing for fans who get behind their players and a manager with experience, he might find the desire to lose weight and he'll be on a mission to show oldham up now and good on him... not hard mind you we made a mockery of them last year...Deluded Oldham fans or what! haha, far better than Yeovil oh dear! :/ anyway glad we signed him looking forward to seeing him play!

Oh and there is no Nandos ;)Oldham are only a small team, similar to Yeovil. Just wait till the season starts and let the football do the talking, cant see either team setting the world a light though!Haha! Yeovil fans calling Oldham a small team. Heard it all know. What league where you playing in when we were in the Premiership?Oldham are small team. With Dickov in charge I think relegation is on the cards for Oldham next season!^^^ your not in the premier league anymore, so shouldnt really bring up the past. As of present, yeovil are a better club, how can i tell? we did the double over you last season, proof is in the pudding!He scored 3 goals from open play , the rest were penaltiesHaha yeovil = oldham reserves, you take the players that we release and yet we were near relegation last year with them players, i would worry if i was a yeovil fan and kmb and reid play first team for youBest thing about reid signing for yeovil was the headline on skysports site, latics ace signs for yeovil, haha couldn't stop laughing didn't know you only have to score a goal as a striker to become an 'ace'Too funny, yeovil fans thinking they are a league one club!, only a matter of time before your back in the non league where you belong, premiership was a long time ago but at least we've been in it! enjoy your 2 reject signings, fat boy and attitude, star buys!!! lol deluded ytfc!Oldham we are a far better team! past results show it! fair play you use to be in the prem well done now get with the times you are a poor team with a poor manager, my money is on relegation for you deluded lot! laters bye.Oldham will go down you can't afford to keep players just look at Taylor he's leaving as he wants to go to a bigger club his words and knowing Gary Johnson and Yeovil town these players will become successful because we respect our playersTaylor left because he wanted to play in the Championship, as he has stated for years. Well done on doing the double over us Yeovil, it was clearly the highlight of your season. See you at BP for your cup final next season.Yeah see you next season for our 6 points ;)What is all this 'we did the double over you' rubbish making you better. I could say where did you finish in the table....ohh yeah one place below us. In six months if you make a success of them two come back and I will gladly hat my Latics hat!Yeovil have been in league 1 for 7 years so that surely proves that Yeovil are a league 1 club.

Crystal Palace are looking to complete the signing of Crawley's Kyle McFadzean as a replacement for Anthony Gardner whom had his contract offer withdrawn from Palace yesterday.

McFadzean is highly thought of at Crawley and they would hold out for £1m for the defender. Blackpool, Burnley, Bolton & Wigan are also thought to be interested.(7)(1)Ahhh mate, i hope this isnt true, if crawley loose McFadzean then its game over and conference here we come :/Gardner did'nt have his contract withdrawn he decided to join sheffield wednesdayTome ince would be a 3.5 mill starting bid baring in mind he has just started to show his true potential over the last 8 months or so and the fact that he is still under contract means he's going to a regular starter at Bloomfield road.All seems believableWhat does tom ince have to do with this post?


02 Jun 2012 14:28:12
The Crystal Palace board seem to be serious about contending for promotion next season as they are about to sanction around £2m in transfer fees next week.

Southampton duo Jason Puncheon & Lee Barnard are valued at £400,000 each by Palace and it is believed that the bid has already been made.

Palace look to be set to test Sheffield Wednesday with a £1m bid for striker Gary Madine.

The loan fee for a season long loan for West Ham striker Sam Baldock is around £200,000 and Palace hope to add a clause to the loan stating that they can buy him for £1,000,000 whenever they choose to throughout the loan(13)(12)Barnard would command a fee of around 500,000, and Puncheon would not be let go for 400,000. Southampton have rejected more before.Palace get promoted? Don't make me laugh!Puncheon is valued by Southampton. At 600,000 -1millionTry doubling that figure for each of Barnard and PuncheonBarny for that price? Maybe. You'll need closer to a mill for puncheon though!Barnard will go, but i sense that punch is going to be used in a deal with blackpool (or at least i hope that's the case)800,000 for Barnard? you are kidding right?I dont know what the hype is about puncheon he isnt good at is worth 150,000 but southampton value him at 600,000-1,000,000See if Saints can sneak in an exchange for Clyne, would be ideal!

Don't mind selling deadwood for cut price to be honest, particularly if it might sweeten the deal for us to sign a palace player, got some good young talent there.

Reading FC are looking at Gylfi Sigurdsson, although Liverpool look more likely to step in if the Icelandic international's move to Swansea falls through.(11)(6)Absolute rubbish-Liverpool are not allowed to sign a Swansea player for 12 months, and whilst he is no longer with them, I would bet that deal also includes him.6.8 million fee agreed with the swansHe isn't a Swansea player yet......only the fee agreed between clubs, but he hasn't signed. So Liverpool can try and sign him if they wishThat deal does not include Sigurdsson, he is not a Swansea player!An agreed fee is an agreement between clubs not the player and the club. And Sigurdsson is not a Swansea player, he's a Hoffeinheim player. So he is not excused of any move to Anfield.He's not a Swansea player yet.. And according to voices in the bundesliga.. No fee has actually been agreedPerfectly plausible as Sigurdsson is at Hoffenhiem not Swansea!But his he is not currently contracted to Swansea so he is excluded from the agreement that Liverpool can't sign any Swansea PlayersFOR THE LAST TIME HE ISNT A SWANSEA PLAYER! Liverpool are entitled to sign him, i swear the amount of stubborn swans fans on here is annoying
- coming from a spurs fanThe clause in Rogers contract with Liverpool states that he cannot purchase any players who played for swansea last season as well as current players. Now correct me if im wrong but siggurdson played for swansea last season?

liverpool is definately not where he is headed^ right so rodgers has said he may go for him if he doesn't go to swansea for a laugh?

Any news on sigurdarson ed? I know wolves, everton and others were interested but it's gone quiet as far as I can tell. {Ed001's Note - no sorry, not heard of anything other than talks with Wolves.}(2)(5)Reading had a £1m bid rejected. Everton have enquired and Wolves have mentioned interest but nothing formal yet. Their Director of Football is notoriously difficult to work with and at the moment clubs have been mostly put off by his firm "£3.5m cash upfront" demands. Moves likely to happen later in the summer. He won't consider anything other than a Premier League move or a move to Wolves.Reading opened the bidding at £1m but have since pulled out. They want £4m and up front. Reading not convinced he's worth that yet. Wolves now favourite with their new manager a fave for Icelanders.

Contrary to rumours, Everton have not bid yet.

Nathan Clarke? we cant sign all these centre backs, so which ones?Nathan ClarkeWell if the budget allows, we need two new centre backs. Cheapest and best on offer!

Reading FC look to strengthen their team by in all areas. Their priorities seem to be to find established goal scorers as well as back up forwards. In order to reinforce their forwards Reading are heavily linked to Christian Jolley of AFC Wimbledon at a fee of around £900k.

The Football 411(1)(17)I'm a Reading fan and I think THIS IS A LOAD OF RUBBISH. Why the hell would we want a AFC WIMBLEDON player for the BPL!!??Billionaire's Reading in for AFC Wimbledon striker. Really?Reading scouted him at least 10 times this year, could be possibleReading are not Billionaires.Er yes they are. AZ worth £650m and his father who has also been cleared by the Prem Lge is worth over £3b.

Matty9Christian Jolley is a very good player, extremely quick, really hope we dont sell him. COME ON WOMBLES!

Scottish midfielder Ian Black is set to sign for English League 1 outfit Swindon Town after becoming frustrated at Rangers money troubles. He is set to sign a 2 year deal with the option of a 3rd should he play a certain number of games.(6)(10)What has Ian Black got to do with Rangers?!?He was at hearts,whats that got to do with rangersEveryone enjoys these wind-up transfer rumours, but people could at least get the facts right about their lies! Black plays for Hearts u numpty {Ed001's Note - I am sure he means because Black was hoping to join Rangers if they could sign players again.}Another st rumour at least get your facts right he played for Hearts not Rangers & he is now out of contractRangers and the player said they would talk if the transfer embargo was lifted. He'd have been an absolute star at Ibrox. Tough in the tackle, and not afraid to mix it up. He is exactly the type of player I would love to see at Rangers............BTW I am a Celtic fan :-)What he was meant to say is because Rangers wanted to sign him but cant at the moment cos of money troubles, he might go to Swindon insteadHow do you know this?I know Black's agent. Di Canio wants him quite badly it seems.Ahh, reckon he would drop to league 1?DROP to league one?? Even Celtic would struggle in the English Championship!! The other Scottish clubs in their very poor top division would have their work cut out in the English first division!! Mind you now that Rangers are in such a state it would probably help Scottish football if Celtic was put in the's going to make things there even worse now that Celtic will pick up the title repeatedly for the next decade!! It was bad enough with just the two of them taking it in it will be pointless!! What a boring league.Haha okay, any other teams after him or look like stfc gunna get him?


02 Jun 2012 13:17:25
Anthony Edagr has left the club because his profile has been removed from the website.(2)(6)He has not left, as i have posted numerous times, he has merely been told he does not feature in the plans for next season and is free to find a new club. but he is still contracted and we'd be informed by the club should he be releasedSeems a bit rash by Edgar. I'm sure he could have asked for it to be put back on.

Hartlepool to sign;
Tommy Miller - Free
Jonothan Grounds - Free
Ryan Donaldson - Free
Samuel Adeji - Free(8)(3)Finally at least some sense on here
Miller if Hartlepool make a offer will no doubt go there as its his old club.
Grounds, I'm not sure but likely to happen
Donaldson was a bit rubbish when he went to Hartlepool before, not so sure about that one
Adjei, looked good at Pools but injury problems might get in the wayDonaldson will not go to Hartlepool. Not a chance.

McDermott, another youngster released from Newcastle, is more likely to move to Hartlepool, but that's becaue he's trained with the club so I'm going on that - nothing else.


02 Jun 2012 13:09:34
Newcastle to sign:
Ibahim Affelay - Barcelona - 5 Million
Mathieu Debuchy - Lille - 5 Million
Kevin Gameiro - PSG - Swap
Douglas - FC Twente - 4 Million
Gael Billigirami - Coventry - 750k
Out Goings:
The 12 already released
Haris Vukic - Cardiff - Loan
Demba Ba - PSG - Swap
Gael Billigirami - Coventry - Loan(13)(33)Would be good to see that but we will be getting young players to come in to fill the spots of the 12 released!Apperantly affelay's going to arsenalWrong Affelay is going to liverpool or Tottenham.You are either getting Adam Johnson or Scott sinclair.

Douglas is out of contract so no money needed he wants to go prem and wants to join newcastle

Demba Ba is not leaving after he revealed several times he feels he would only shine at newcastle due to their style of play and feels that he would get more goals and play alot better along side International Partner Cisse.

Gael Billigirami will join a Championship side on loan

Also Shane Ferguson wants out and Derby county have already made an enquiry.It's Bigirimana and he's just signed a new contract so don't think this will happenGael bigrimana
just signed a knew contract so he is going nowhereWho are the 12 Newcastle players who have been releasedAnother deluded geordie, Ba, Tiote, Cisse, Ben Arfa, Coloccini, Cabaye all to be sold and replaced with youthful players with potential for the futureAffelay will go to arsenal and not any other club as wenger is a long term admirer of Affelay and one of the players van persie asked to get if he is to stay and both players are friendsSorry Sunderland, your players are worth so so much. Your best players want away, not a single one has said they wanted to stay!

Southampton plotting 1million pound move for unwanted spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas. He is wanted to bring much needed Premier League experience.(7)(25)How are pompey doing nowadays mate coyr shhhWhy get jenus who is injury proan for 1 mill when we could gert hargreaves who is injury prone for freeWould be a good signing and it's possibleWhat a nonsense.If we want a prem experienced midfielder I'd go with Reo Coker over Jenas. A leader, commanding, will want prem football and perhaps a return south. Less injury prone than Jenas.Realistic target, heard the rumour to.Jenas if fit ?? would be a great signing reo coker has not got the same pedegree
as jenas give him a go i sayKeep hargreves fit and is good as anyone


02 Jun 2012 13:08:18

Derby county are looking at other
targets just in case

With good interest in Crystal palce duo
Alex Marrow and Keiran Cadogan.

Nigel has finally got a certian 20 goal
a season striker with Nicky Maynard
been allowed to leave Upton park
to lower the wage bill and he was told
when he asked that if he would get
first team football he was told that
that there would be rotation in the squad and no one unless they were playing amazing
would get a constant start.After the
last 5 games of the season Vaz te
and Carlton cole started together
and Maynard made 1 sub appearence
also Vaz te is interested in a move
back to portugal.with names such as
Bos dast and Josue knowing west ham
they will pull off some good signings
but because they already bought
alot im sure Gold will want to see
some return.

Derby Made an enquiry and west ham
have allowed him to speak to derby
But hes on holiday at the moment
so we wont get the inside to this intill
he gets back.But it all depends on
Whether he values the Prem Lifestyle
to Playing regulary.(7)(16)Bas Dost has already joined WolfsburgWhy would maynard go to derby but if he did it would be a great signingDerby have not got the money to buy maynardI would love maynard but i doubt we have to money for him, where was this rumour 'made up'?If this happened it would make my season but it wont his wage demands alone would put us out the race, just because glick has gone we aren't gonna start doing. These signingsWhy on earth would Maynard want to go to Derby - he turned down Leicester last year because he wants to play in the Premier League (and moved to West Ham in January becvause he thought they would be promoted)Think hes been released


02 Jun 2012 12:44:30
My cousin who lives in birmingham saw darius vassel last night in a club, and said he has been in contact over a possible move to swindon! Straight from the horses mouth.(7)(13)Great another injury prone non goal scoring strikerGreat signing! Bags of pace and bags of goals......... About 10 years ago! How about talking Kenny Dalglish into playing alongside him then having Bobby Charlton in the hole? Peter Shilton could still do a jobWas a bit injury prone by the sounds of it, but hes only 31 and could still do a good job at league 1 level. would need to accept a big drop in wages I would think though


02 Jun 2012 12:41:39
How true is this Gary Roberts Rumour about him signing for AFC Bournemouth?(5)(9)I really hope its true cracking player but dnt think it will happen.No truth, he wants to stay north and so is looking at sheffield united for now... but most of the interest in him is from the south from the more ambitious teams such as bournemouth and yeovil etc... but his wage demands are those of a championship player...Dont know how much truth it holds but it seems to be gathering pace (unlike roberts) good lg1 player!We can afford championship wages at afcbHe's heading north to Preston!Apparently he's going to sign for sheffield wednesday


02 Jun 2012 12:40:01
Free agent James McFadden interested in move to Middlesbrough, Mowbray looking for free agent striker/winger to boost this years promotion push. Although wages maybe an issue.

Paul Lambert was a huge admirer of Jay Rodriguez at Norwich but did not have the funds to meet Burnley's asking pirce. Rodriguez has returned from holiday and talks have stalled with the Saints, expect the Scot to make a bid for the Burnley born front man sometime this coming week.(13)(20)He doesn't return until Tuesday next week you numb nut quit your dreaming and get out of lala land :L because talks with saints wont stop lol no1 will pay more than 7 million for him and besides thats most of his 20 million on one player :L so obv not! i can't wait for him to sign so all you people will quit thinking your getting himHe's gonna be a Saint. What a bummer eh? HahaVilla would be a better option for Jay, instead of going to a medium sized club like Southampton who are odds on favourates to be relegated... deluded saints buying everyone he he get real..Doubt lambert would spend his whole transfer budget on one playerVilla living in the past, Saints are the future and it will take more than Lambert to alter that.
After another 12 months you may start to see some progress at Villa, but Saints have the momentum and they will be out of your sight by then.Haha deluded Saints fans....I think your the deluded one mate with that post.No way, the potential Bennet shows he will be worth more in a few years.Why are people doubting the Saints, saying were favourites to be relegated? We have a great squad and hopefully will be bringing in a few quality players to add to that... Weren't the 3 promoted teams last season favourites to be relegated and none of them were! Villa battled relegation last season and probably will again without major investment, I would say we have a better chance of surviving this season over villa


02 Jun 2012 12:24:16
Tottenham have bid for Jack Butland of Birmingham.(12)(7)No they haven't again, the only team who has had any interest has been Southampton!Half the clubs in the prem will be making a bid...the other half cant afford him.If so, there goes another potential star down the drain

Reading might make a move for Keith Andrews as he has been released from west brom !

LOYAL ROYAL 1871(14)(3)Made an offer in January so wouldn't be a surprise
MrRfcThis is highly likely. Andrews was very close to signing for Reading in January until WBA came in. Brian McDermott is a big admirer.When big Eck gets the baggies job he will replace Andrews with Craig Gardner. TrustI heard the big Eck umour as well

Palace News!
Looking to sell KG as he is now considered surplus and both Peterborough and Watford are interested.

Keiran Cadogan is either heading to Chesterfield or Rotherham for 150k.

Nat Clyne is certain to leave yet due to FIFA ruling any club wishing to sign him, although his contract ends, compensation will be in the region of 1.5-3m. Clubs interested are Aston Villa, Sunderland and big dogs Manchester Utd.

The club are expected to sell Lewis Price who is the subject of a 400k bid from Sheffield Utd. Likely cover is Ben Williams of Colchester or free agent Marián Kello.

Anthony Gardner will sign a 1 year contract extension but Freedman wishes to sign another Centre Back. Currently shortlisted include St. Ledger and McPake

Jermaine Easter, Alex Marrow and Andy Dorman are all considering moves as Dougie has told them they are fringe players.

Players linked with include Zoko of Carlisle and Westcarr of Chesterfield(5)(6)Anthony Gardner had a medical at shef weds yesterday outcome not yet made public but def not staying at PalaceNo way Cadogan going to Rotherham he was a flop on loan, no way worth £150kRory Loy is better then Nahki Wells and Carlisle released Wells so why the hell would we have him back?If we millers pay 150k for cardigan.then we have got more money than senseI will personally drive Westcarr to Palace for you!Jermaine Easter may be going to Portsmouth

Mariappa to reading should be done next week, unless late interest from others. fee been agreed for weeks
MrRfc(9)(8)He will have a medical when he returns from international duty
MrRfcSo what happened to the £2m that got rejected then (Confirmed on Sky Sports). Can't have been agreed for weeks surely?Sly spurts are miles behind on this a 2m bid was rejected but reading went back in. believed to be around 2.5m - been agreed for around 2 weeks
MrRfcSky Sports isn't confirmation, they have their sources and they aren't necessarily always correct. Don't treat everything Sky says like gospel.


02 Jun 2012 11:32:07
Paul Coutts to sign for Palace for 200k. Palace have also offered Coventry 300k to sign James McPake; solving their Centre Back worries(6)(9)Why wud pne sell coutts for 200k wen he is worth 700k at leastPalace will need more than 200k to sign CouttsPeterborough have offered 700k, no way are palace going to get him for 200kIf palace want mc pake ill drive him there myself, oh and we only want 100,000 off hibs for the injury prone donkey.No offers have been made for Coutts. He's 100% left PNE as his house in Leyland is back up for rent and he's back in Aberdeen. Coutts signed for an undisclosed fee (Thought to be around £150k) and it would take a bid of around £250k for him to go.Mcpake is a decent defender and £300k is a far more realistic figure than the very low valuation of £100k that SISU (Cov's owners) have placed on him! Most Cov fans hope that we do not sell him, but if they (SISU) do then I hope that this valuation is correct!


02 Jun 2012 11:29:49
Crystal Palace have launched a 1m bid for Saints pair Lee Barnard and Jason Puncheon.

West Ham to make a second bid for Grant Holt.

190298(12)(5)Holt off to sunderland as he wants to be nearer his family who live in carlisle, also lambert wants him to go to villa with him4.5m bid rejected. not worth any more.If anyone is listening, Holt ain't going anywhere unless Norwich allow him to leave since he still has 2+ years left on his current contract, if they do let him leave then it will only be when someone offers a stupid price for a 31 year old who lets face it, has had one good season in premiership (no guarantee he can produce that form next year).
I think Norwich will turn down anything under £5M even though he wants to leave apparently, there is no financial reason to let him go, so any move will be motivated by the amount of money offered, IE its not Holt who will choose destination, its Norwich City, unless of course two clubs offer the same amount.Didnt know we made a first

Bournemouth set to sign Gary Roberts?

The talented winger has been linked to the team his Huddersfield knocked out of the play off semi-final a year ago. It's thought that he will replace Pugh should he not sign a contract.(10)(9)If its true you have a great player,i am amazed we didnt re sign him.A real powerhouse of a player.You might think he was a power house but i think we're better without himAgreed terms with sheff wed so no chance. Doesn't want to move house so signing for a team 15 miles away suits. 2 yr contract with option of a thirdHe's not that good i knew grayson would release he does have good games but not that fast and other lg1 players have a better final ball than roberts, still tho not bad for the cherries who will be there or there abouts next season!I have to disagree with the final ball comment. He puts in some brilliant crosses. He just wasn't performing this season. He only has himself to blame for not signing at the beginning of the season. He will still have some good games in the championship but not as many. He would be a great signing for any league 1 teamRoberts is too slow to be a winger, good feet but very slow

I've heard that Darius Vassell may either go to MK Dons, who need a striker and have Ian Wright, who will attract new strikers who want to work with him, or to PNE, who are going through a squad overhaul currently. Or he will go for one final PayDay abroad. {Ed001's Note - do you really think Vassell will risk playing abroad again after last time? If you don't know what I am on about, try googling his blog, it makes for interesting reading.}(4)(7)Apparently he is close to signing for port vale!People do strange things for money...Surely not that strange...


02 Jun 2012 10:37:35
Southampton's exclusivity period for the signing of Jay Rodriguez has passed without a deal being struck. This now means that other clubs can bid for the lad.

Jay has stated that he would like to have the chance to consider his options before making such a life-changing decision but Southampton are still favourites to land his signature.(11)(10)Where did you hear this? As I understand it, J-Rod had been out of the country on his Holidays, while his agent has been handling negotiations.the bid was accepted and we haven't even had a chance to talk over personal terms because he is on holiday! you must be an absolute person to think that he would turn down a club which in the premier league got a rich owner, we are sensible with our money an we would only be paying out this much if we didn't believe that he was going to be a future great. there is no deadline and there has been no talk of a deadline if there was someone would have put it on sky sports or bbc sports website this is just a jealous supporter of another team who wishes they could have signed him so don't put stupid comments on here when you have know idea what your talking about, also Southampton are not new to the premier league we were their for 27 years and only got relagated under Harry Red, our owner was st at the time and invested money we didn't have at the time, we have had some of the best players play for us Alan S, Matt Le Tissier and more we just had some bad luck in the past and now we are back there with more money and a better owner which investing in the clubs future and wants to get us into the top six so we can have European football at some point in the future, dont say it wont happen because we have the money todo it and we have the manager to take us their, just face the facts that Southampton are a club players will want to join because of our ambitions, Look at Tadanari Lee had big clubs interested from the premier league but joined Southampton because he saw that we have ambitions to be a top six team and joined us. dont say hes st by one game because i know for a fact that 5 times in the premier league were interested in the him with clubs such as, Norwich, West Brom and others all looking at him and getting ready for a bid, As a team we have made some shock buys even in league 1 and the championship that made the world look twice at us. Face the facts Southampton have the money the ambitions and the manager to be a big club, look at what Harry Red said about Nigel Adkins, he said that in years to come Nigel Adkins would be the man to manage England but only when he has had more experience and is a bit older, this just show that we have a very good manager there were teams trying to get him but he turned them down saying i plan on staying at Southampton for a very long time. i hope this actually stops all you stupid fans that thik Southampton arnt a big team, we are the 6th richest club in europe not going y rev, going by money! we are going to prove all of you wrong and i cant wait for next season were we prove what we have and what we are capable of doing as a team and a club!I think some spotty 12 year old pretending to be an agent on Twitter posted this and gullible people like yourself have actually fallen for it. Oh dear..And breath.How could you have an exclusivity period that starts and ends whilst the player is away on holiday.
There are some people out there who don't think about what they are posting........and breatheExpect Paul Lambert to get him to VillaNo they are notNot going by revenue going by money? I'm guessing you mean money belonging to your owners? Your owner already wrote off huge debts, I dont think he will be throwing money left and right. Top 6 maybe an ambition but even when you had the likes of Le Tis and Shearer what was the highest you finished?You are not a cash rich club, your owners is two different things entirely. Yes, you used to be in the Premiership but things have changed so much since then. You will never be a top six side, Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, Everton, Newcastle are all bigger than you, add in Aston Villa to that too. You certainly have delusions of grandeur.We finished runner up to Liverpool in the 80's. lost the league on goal difference.

Long time ago...

but a club with ambitions. Saints are going to surprise quite a few people in the next 5 yrs.Looks like a Pompey Skate has been on wikipedia looking at Saints history. As a Saints fan i dont care who we sign, i am sure NC and NA will do rifht for the club. Pompey fans concentrate on your own club you have far bigger problems then to worry about Saints.

I just read that all your players, (all 11 of them) can leave for free with 14 days notice because your club breached there contract. If that happends surely that will be it for you.It's ambition you person anything can happen look at newcastle and tottenham the latter was near the bottom of the prem before there turn around it Might not happen but with the right set up it could happen its forever evolving.Highest finish in top flight 2nd. Apart from Man City having loads more money, what has changed since we were last in the Prem? Looks like the same list of clubs to me. The ambition of our chief exec and wealthy owners is not a crime but i suppose ignorance and snobbery isn't either! Nearly swapped places with Villa last season.No Paul lambert will not get himOmg the money paid off was out of Markus Liebherr paid that debt off through his ow money and he is a billionaire so you must. the money he had he wanted invested in the club but want his son to use it wisely so we can be a big club in the years to come, also anyone can be top 6 with the right ambitions for the clubMy god, some Saints fans are embarrassing. We've not even been back for 2 months yet and you're expecting us to be mixing it with the big boys financially? We went down because we spent ridiculous amounts of money, we won't be doing it again. Players will come in for the right price, the money is there, but it won't be chucked about.Why do people argue about how "big" a club is? its nonsense , revenue based on gate receipts are no longer an effective measure. Ambition and he ability to maintain ambition might be (if you could measure it!)We didn't go down because we spent ridiculous amounts of money. WGS left because Lowe refused to sanction the transfers of Saha and Malbranque. Lowe then fudged it by not supporting Sturrock when the players revolted, hiring Wigley when out of his depth and, finally, not backing Redknapp enough in the January window. None of those scenarios occured because we overspent.

Joe mattock is on the brink of signing for Brighton(8)(7)Hes already been offered a better contract by derby after Paul dixons contract demands were to high and Mattocks were only half of that so they can him better Loyalty bonus to attract him with first team football and gareth roberts for cover and cup gamesQuality Left BackHe will go to Brighton as a) they have more funds than derby and b) he has links with Brighton as he spent last season on loanAnd I take it you what both clubs are offering him do you, you must be a very well trusted member of the football community!Mattock.

Peterborough winger George Boyd is set to join Burnley for £2m(10)(8)

Hull City striker Aaron Mclean is set to join Brighton for a fee believed to be £2m(4)(12)After the stupid money they paid for CMS I really don't think they'd want McLean too!
Both are good players, they just can't cut it in the championshipAfter his performances for Hull he is hardly going to have appreciated in value - with just a year to go on his contract he will go for about half of the £1m that Hull paid for him


02 Jun 2012 10:16:59
Russell Martin to Aston Villa £3m(4)(17)Not gd enough for villa

Craig Mackail-Smith is set to join Reading from Brightom for £2.5m.(8)(22)No better than what we already have, its just not going to happen.He has already proved he isn't good enough for the Championship, never mind the PL!That would be a rubbish buy for rzzzzzzzzzzzzNo thanks


02 Jun 2012 10:13:53
Aston Villa have made a £6m bid for Norwich defender Ryan Bennett. Bennett was only signed from Peterborough in January, but Paul Lambert sees Bennett as the ideal signing for Villa.(6)(21)6m seems a bit overpriced, i know hes young with time to develop but he is not worth 6m.

From a norwich fanWouldn't happen. Shown great star potential at Norwich, wouldn't let him go, especially not so soonDont believe you its liesNorwich would have made a nice profit on him


02 Jun 2012 10:11:00
Everton, Reading & West Brom have all had £2.5m bids accepted for Peterborough United striker Paul Taylor.(4)(12)Only cus the club shop have a load of old shirts left with no9 Taylor onIt was reported near to the close of the season that Paul Taylor wanted a move nearer to his home so it would make sense for him to go to Everton or Wigan as he comes from that area but I think that Reading or Fulham are not where he wants to be based. West Brom could be a possibility if it is close enough for him.

Peterborough United are looking to complete deals for. Danny Swanson - Free. Darren O'Dea - Free. Alex Cisak - £250k - Oldham. Paulo Gazzaniga - £600k - Gillingham. Michael Bostwick - £550k - Stevenage. Luke O'Neill - £250k - Mansfield. Paul Coutts - £700k - Preston. Anthony Wordsworth - £600k - Colchester. Michael Jacobs - Tribunal - Northampton. Chris Martin - Free - Norwich. Tom Kennedy - £150k - Leicester. Franck Nouble - Free(3)(18)Stop Kidding yourselfs you have no money to spend and even if some are Free Darren o dea will be on high wages.
You are favourites for relegation next season and so players wont want to join unless alot better players join.

Nouble has agreed to a trial with derby
and Michael Jacobs is Nigel Cloughs no1 target and i massively doubt he would snub them for you.If you think you are going to sign Wordsworth for 600K you are dreaming, stop smoking the wacky tobacky.We are not favourites for relegion thats Barnsley. We are second favourites get your facts rightThe twassock above me has no clue, fed up with people saying we have no money, we've got plenty, and a chairman that's willing to spend this summer, so if we want these players, we'll get them.All un true. Martin will cos money nouble is at west ham and another peterbough have no money lolWe don't have a lot of money available, but do have some, and nobody who comes on here knows how much.Wot ! Posh av no money you no nothing.Plenty in the pot .YOU dummies who say we aint got money, you will be surprised we who we av already signed.Keeping it to ourselves you numpties.Some of these will DEFINATELY happen....not all though.Where on earth do people get the impression from that Posh have no money,
I suppose that ignorance is bliss for some.We are one of the most financialy stable clubs in the championship, (Peterborough) so get your facts rightYou can have Holt and we will pay you 4-8 million.....just one condition, you keep Heskey.First Nouble has not agreed toi a trial @ Derby & Second 600K for Wordsworth might just cover the depositWhy wouldn't you continue with the policy, you guys have had so much success signing lower league players. As a Norwich fan I've seen first hand how Ryan Bennett is, and you got him from bottom of league 2 Grimsby. It's great to see you guys doing so well, and smashing the tractor 7-1 last season.


02 Jun 2012 10:05:01
Grant Holt to Villa for about 4-8mil Heskey to norwich on free(7)(21)Holts agent stated yesterday that if he were to leave Norwich Villa would not be an option. nice try though8 mill i will drive him there myself get realClose but got your numbers wrong.

Lambert expected to go for Holt and Norwich will accept £2M due to the clubs poor finances.

Heskey is at Carrow Road for talks, as we know Holt will leave.Needs to be £20m if we have to take HeskeyNo players are here having talks..because we have no manager! Never going to get £8m for Holt, I think it'll end up being nearer £4-5m... As for Heskey...if our next manager signs him up then he won't be around long!Not going to get 8 mil for holt but will be more than 2 mil

and if heskey joins norwich i will go and shoot the person whos idea it was to get himNorwich would be better re-signing Wilbraham than taking Heskey.

Oxford have accepted a 180k bid + chris zebroski, from Bristol Rovers. Bristol are also interested in midfielder Ross Draper, and bondz n'gala. it is also reported Bristol have taken a 17year old striker on trail from polish division two side LSK Lodz, the young bosnian, Michal Kaczmarz, has impressed during his first professional season in football, scoring 19 goals in 24 league games. However Kaczmarz is only one year into a five year contract, and is also attracting interest from a number of lower league English and German clubs, therefore would cost in the region of 150 - 300k.(4)(8)I hope not. Dont mind if James Constable leaves us - think a good move for all concerned but no thank you to Zabroski....we can do much betterAccepted that for who ?Please please please take bondz ngala
DevonGreenCan categorically say the Polish striker rumour is not true, however there is a young bulgarian striker in talks with Rovers. Was on trial at Aberdeen when McGhee was manager.

Also, Carayol set to sign for Watford £600k plus add ons. Striker Gavin Massey and full back Adam Thompson set to join on season long loan.

Aidan Downes set to sign on 6 month deal to prove fitness.

Southampton are planning a £3m move for Jack Butland, the 19-year old Birmingham keeper according to the Daily Mirror..(17)(8)Like this to be true,reckon he'd be a great addition to our squad.Aah yes, that beacon of factual reporting that is the Daily Mirror!! It is a tabloid newspaper and as such as no journalistic credibility, it treats the news secondary behind celebrities and gossip.Im pretty sure rodrigez was in a tabloid? research before you make your points


02 Jun 2012 09:32:06
Andrew Johnson set for Palace return, he'll become Palace's highest earner on a dropped wage of around 20k per week, source has said the Palace owner's are hoping for an increase in season ticket sales when they announce the signing on Friday, you heard it here first, good luck AJ and thank you for a great service, FFCM.(9)(19)Haha no chance!Good Luck AJ


02 Jun 2012 09:26:45
Very Unlikely but,
Daily Mirror: Southampton enquire about a £3M raid for Birmingham starlet Jack Butland(16)(10)This is ridiculous. no person can truthfully say they had heard of him a week ago.Southampton will be enquiring about every player wil a touch of quality because there desperate and need players dont mean they will get any1 since there bottom of the prem ship pile in pecking orderSaints desperate? Bottom of the pile? Pompey fan are we?Just because you haven't heard of him doesn't mean that no one has. Thanks to football manager I, and others have known about him for a while now.It says in the mail we just inquiredJust because you hadnt heard of him until a week ago, doesnt mean all of us were the same!
SOME football fans know about players even in the lower leagues.He would be a great signing saints r 1 of the best for bringing players through the ranks Matt le tiss gareath bale theo walcott etcThis could happen but on loan for the seasonIf this happens it wouldnt be a loan. Would be a perm transfer


02 Jun 2012 09:25:25
Paul Lambert to be confirmed our new
manager on weds.
Got to pay 1.5m compensation, lerner
doesnt want to pay but hey if u want
something u pay.
Dont mess around lerner and lose out,
norwich can block the deal, he still has
a contract to honour(12)(4)Thats a good deal for villa liverpool paid out 7 million1.5 million alone, the milestone was set with Swansea's 7 millionJust been announced on SSNLambert is on a one year rolling contract, Rodgers had 3 years left on his at least. people talking out of where the sun don't shine. and this post shows how reliable it all is, as lambert was confirmed today.


02 Jun 2012 09:24:32
West Ham latest transfer rumours: Yakubu is likely to join for a fee of 1.2m, he is expected to agree personal terms and pass a medical by next week. Been a lot of rumours about Wilfried Zaha becoming a west ham player within the next two weeks and they have offered 5m+Baldock+Spence for the promising young talent. Kieran Richardson is going to join for a fee of 4m, and that will also be announced in the next two weeks. If this Richardson deal falls through, they shall go for Blackburn full-back Martin Olsson but the hammers have competion from Chelsea. Been rumours that they want some free transfers aswell like Pogrebnyak, Kalou, Saha and Owen. But who shall be leaving West Ham? John Carew, Abdoulaye Faye, Papa Bouba Diop, Frank Nouble, Julien Faubert and Oliver Lee have all been released. Been loads of rumours that Rob Green has rejected a new-contract. This is all lies because he will reveal his future after the Euros! If he does reject a new contract, his has been strongly linked with QPR so that means West Ham will need a new keeper, but Big Sam has said Stephen Henderson will start as number 1 goalkeeper if Green does leave. Baldock has been linked with loads of championship clubs like Ipswich, Palace, Millwall but in my opinion, he will be to Palace because I can see the Zaha deal happening.(10)(14)Rumours in north is that richardson and mcartney will sign and also whu look like signing kenwyne jones from stokePogrebnyak and Kalou have much better offers already - the other dross is possible.


02 Jun 2012 09:10:55
Malky MacKay won't go to Norwich if he does there will be no money as Malky's contract release is around £4million, therefore any deal after that would bust the bank of Norwich City.
Despite being linked with Norwich Malky's men still looking for transfers at Cardiff.
James McFadden free.
Ricardo Fuller free.
Liam Lawrence £500k.
Andy Halliday is also wanted but Middlesborough haven't released a price tag on him yet.
If they can't get Halliday they will go for Jim O'Brien from Barnsley for around £750k.
Also don't rule out a return for Craig Bellamy.(11)(10)Norwich will get their number 1 Manager target to replace Lambert. Mark my words! And 4 million is not going to break the bank. We have already been told that we have an extra 10 million on what we spent last season on transfers! So could be as much as 25 million. The funny thing is Lambert will only have between 10-15 million at Villa. And believe me, they need a lot more than that to turn things around. So IF we wanted Malky, we would get him, but he isn't our number 1 target.Why would Villa have to pay less to get Lambert (who is under contract and has proven premiership credentials) than Norwich would for Manky who has a track record of personal advancement over club loyalty!As a norwich fan who ever the clown is two comments above what are you on about you know more than Steven fry. We won't pay four mil for mackay who would be an awful choice. Bring in Ian holloway. As for Lambert getting 20 mil at villa its more than we can affordLambert was on a rolling one year contract so any compensation would be small. Mackay signed a contract in February until 2016 so Norwich would have to buy out his contract. Relative position in the football leagues has nothing to do with it...I agree with all of thatDown side of giving s manager such long dr is if cardiff faol to me prem un nx couple years it will cost lot to get rid of who ever is in chargeAs a cardiff fan I think that Norwich will target ether lee clark or steve bruce as nether require compensation and would thus have more budget to help norwich survive because of malkeys release clauseTo the second comment with all due respects norwich can't pick and choose manager you are not a big enough club also no club says they have no money do theyJim O'Brien as agreed to sign a new contract at barnsley yesterday (saturday) everythings been agreed its a done deal


02 Jun 2012 09:06:24
Holt to conclude a £2 million move to Villa from Norwich by the end of next week(4)(25)Will be more then 2. Will be like 4-5ish look how important he has been to norwich for the past three seasons.

Realistic Villa FanNorwich have rejected £4.5m from West Ham. They will not sell for a measly £2m.He's not for sale only at 6m+Without a manager at Villa, no players will be signing.You dont pay 2million for a player that scored 17 goals last season!We have a manager6m for a 31yr old? no chance


02 Jun 2012 09:02:34
West Ham have had a 3million-pound bid rejected from Norwich for Grant Holt. Norwich say, ' If you want him, double the bid '.(8)(11)He would never go to a small club like west hamHolt is a legend at Norwich, if he leaves the club that loves him and is not with the manager that has brought the best out of him I feel he may fall flat on his face, the phrase BIG fish little pond springs to mind......who had heard of Grant Holt two years ago


02 Jun 2012 08:53:37
Ipswich have agreed a 750k deal with watford for scott loach(12)(4)Keep dreaming Ipswich
It'll be around 1.5-2 mil for ScottySounds like a good deal for Ipswich. But I can't see Watford letting him go for that sort of money without another keeper coming in.Good one! watford won't sell below 1.5mWhy say stuff that ain't true there interested in loach no bid yet and nothings been agreed and 750,000 more like 2.5 millionIf Watford are successful in loaning Ben Amos from Man Utd for the season, Scott Loach will leave for Ipswich in a deal worth £1m plus add - onsI can't see Loach going for any more than £1M, £750k is a fair price for both parties


02 Jun 2012 08:33:12
Reading are looking into the signing of Mamadou Diallo, a Mali international player. He now plays for CS Sedan. Fee of about 3.2 million.(7)(8)He'd be a good signing for them. He's marginally better than Heskey at any rate.

Bale and Modric going to man u plus utd paying 15m with swaps for Berbatov and Nani.. U herd it first(14)(36)U r joking berbatov is worth 6-10 mil nani is worth 13-20 mil bale 50 mil and modric milUtter nonsenseNow that is funnyBale is worth about £25million tops, modric about £30million if your lucky. Nani about 20-25million and Berbatov about 4million so therefore it would have to be these two plus 25-30million for any bid to be considered.Price are all wrong but would not be surprised if Bale didn't end up at utd. Perfect replacement for Giggs.

Josh McQuoid from Millwall for 750k plus Scott Malone
Lewis Grabban from Rotherham for 300k
Jamal Bajandouh form Winchester City for free(17)(3)Could be wrong but didnt millwall pay bournemouth 750k plus mcquoid. not other way round?Yes that's right, Millwall paid 750k + mcquoid! Great business for Bournemouth, we sold them mcquoid last year for 750k and signed Malone on a free so you could say Millwall have given us 1.5mil for nothing. Malone (although a very good player) was more of a fringe player towards the back end of season anywayWe bought Mcquoid for 500k and you bought malone for 150k so you obviously know what your talking aboutAnd it was 500k + McquoidIt's actually a straight swop with no money involved....confirmed by board membersIt doesn't really matter, Malone was a squad player for Bournemouth (although a very good player) and mcquoid was a squad player for milwall (although a very good player) but both now could prove very important players for respective first teams so good deal all round. Now if we could just take Liam back off your hands that would be greatFee for Malone was revealed as player plus cash believed to be in the region of £750k. That means the cash involved (if any) was £750k minus whatever Millwall's valuation of McQuoid is.Why did we sell scott he was a great player


02 Jun 2012 01:30:01
So Liverpool have a 60 million limit on this years transfer budget unless they sell so I think they will
Skrtel(really dont like this but he apparently wants to leave and theirs no point keeping an unhappy player)
Thats all I can really see us selling can see us selling cause of the massive loss we would make on last years signings
We need to
A centre back
A left back a left winger
1 or maybe even 2 right wingers so wel have a backup
And a clinical finisher
I wanna hear who you think we will sign and be realistic (eg non starting champions league footballers)
I honestly dont really know but eager to see your opinions(3)(20)Gary hooper is a clinical finisherDarren Bent clinical finisherIf Rogers gets the job I would like to see him take either Dyer or Sinclair with him!All Liverpool can play for next season is a top 6 finish. That would be a good season for them.Your Budget will be closer to 20 million pounds plus sales. You can thank Kenny and all the money he blew on downing and co. No way will it be 60 {Ed001's Note - there is no budget, each signing is assessed on a case by case basis. Any talk otherwise is fantasy.}Scousers likes to dreamRyan shawcross is a great centre half wud be a awesome signingHaha 60million? thats why liverpool have said brendan will have 25 million lus players sales whih will be around 12 million? and he cant buy any swansea players for 12 months so dream on people {Ed001's Note - Liverpool have not put a figure on the amount available.}As the eds have there will not be a figure i believe they will spend within their means and i believe they could afford more than 60 million if they wanted to as i think their richer than what people thinkHeard the figure for transfers was more 30-35 million plus anything from sales.


02 Jun 2012 01:14:39
celtic will either sign one of the following

carew(8)(20)They will sign Carew because he's st, just like the Scottish leagueDefinitely Carew. Celtic scraping the championship rejects barrel for their annual champions league farcical embarassment.Wee Club Syndrome ^^Yakubu and Rhodes would be the only two who would interest Celtic, the other two couldn't hit a barn door from two feet, and 3 out of the 4 played in the supposedly superior premiership last season.I love the english fans, just delusional. I was at Celtic Park when we beat Man Utd, Liverpool and Blackburn oh and when we beat Barcelona, AC Milan, Juventus etc

the list goes on. the only English side to give us a true doing was Arsenal and we had Mowbray that season in which St Mirren even beat us 4-0 lol so nothing to be proud about there.

Celtic more often than not have beat english sides even back to the 70's when Leeds were going to "hammer us" and we hammered them. my grandad and dad have heard the same arrogance from england fans from years and saw celtic shut you up also and so hav iWell said mate, they can only criticise the league, they forget how much money the english teams have and celtic would still hammer most of then YNWAMate totally agree with you but it always will be there from the commentators to the fans totally ignorant! That is why they are the most hated international team in the worldTrue buddy haha even on rte an irish broadcaster, they still lick the english teams ball. when celtic were playin united in the cl, the main presentor(bill o herlihy), said at half time will celtic win or will WE win hahah

Kenneth C Griffin, is thought to be the man behind the chicago based outfit rumoured to be interested in leeds.

He is the founder and CEO of citadel 1 of the worlds largest hedge fund investment firms, and has a personal wealth thought to be in the region of $2.3-$2.5 billion.

At the end of 2011 he was the 512th richest person in the world!

This is the rumour i have heard from relatives who live in the states and a friend who has just recently come back (3 days ago)from the states and stopped off in chicago (for 1 night) on his way back home.

Also rumours about gary roberts is total nonsense he has signed for sheffield wednesday.(13)(12)Amidst some of the garbage being posted Darby seems a good shout,particularly as we need a right back....


02 Jun 2012 00:30:04
Looks like Micheal Landrup has moved near the front of the queue as Huw Jenkins feels his reputation, philosophy as well as his contacts would suit Swansea however it is believed that Greame Jones is Huw Jenkins favoured choice due to past relationships and he believes the former assistant is a very decent person and would be able to have a close relationship which Huw believes to be one of the three main attributes to a Swansea manager, alongside philosophy and tactical knowledge.(7)(5)Apparently graham has rejected the the offer as he wanted to bring people with him but huw jenkins wouldnt pay the compensaation for them?Local press say Jones now out of the picture.Good that jones is out wee need a manager not a turncourt


02 Jun 2012 00:14:00
Preston to sign Ricardo Fuller on a free
after recently being released by stoke.
Also it is believed Preston are in the
running to sign Michael Owen(5)(49)Aww you made me spill my tea :(Fuller has been asking stupid wages allegedly and can't really see PNE affording him.I said fuller would come back like a month agoPlaying for Jamaica tonight before anyone claims to have spotted him at Deepdale :-)Absolute garbage. completely untrue.Yes he 'has'... Minor confirmation if you Wikipedia him... My sources are proper sources... Congrats PNE (Terrier)I have been told that Owen will sign for PNE as a favour to Trevor Hemmings and eventualy buy the club off him.

Ricardo Fuller would fit right in at Deepdale and we could well afford his wages as Hemmings is giving us £5m - £10m to buy new players.

Have also been told by a friend who works at Deepdale that there are another 8 players comming in but they wont be announced because their clubs dont want the fans to know their losing their best and brightest players.

Newcastle, Liverpool & Chelsea have also told Westley that he can have the pick of their youth teams on loan next season to develop their playing skills as he did such a good job at StevenageGo back to playin footy Manager, cos thats only way any of this would be possible.

I havent laughed so hard in a long time. Owen wants to stay in the Prem and PNE couldnt afford either wages.You won't be able to afford the wages. Fuller was released because Stoke wanted to lower his wages and he refused and Michael Owen will be getting a mint at Man U. More importantly, Owen has stated many times that he wants to play TOP FLIGHT football. Sorry PNE.Hahahhaha---go outside and get some much needed fresh air..and im a preston fan and thats the best i heard yet!Ha ha, is it April 1st? Fuller and Owen?
Not a cat in hells chance. From a realistic PNE fan.As a pne fan i know this fuller owen rumour is utter tripe .yes pne have a lot of money to spend but it wont be on these two ,championship strikers more like itPNE are signing lower league players who are available on Bosmans and frees....not Fee'sTrue for fuller but it will be his last season before retiring!Owen to PNE. aahahahah. Oh dear I've just pee'd a bit.Your all forgetting how rich preston are.. i am not a fan of them but they have one of the richest owners in tthe football leagues. owen owes horses so does hemmings so dnt rule it out

Norwich will not sell Holt to Villa as they still unhappy about Lambert. As Holt has handed in a transfer request he could be on his way to Everton or Southampton for 3m+(4)(26)Holt will leave for a newly promoted team, West Brom, Sunderland or Everton for less than £4m, so this could be trueSouthampton are planning a £3m move for Jack Butland the Birmingham keeper according to the Daily MirrorNot sure why Southampton would want Holt with Rickie Lambert already at the club who is technically superior to Grant.He's not for sale. Norwich will only accept 6m+We've got lambert, lee, sharp and possibly Rodriquez all of whom are better than Fat Boy Holt will ever be. Most over-rated player in the division. 15 goals in a season-Whoopie!OMG LMFAO, Holt is only worth 2-4 million taking in his age 3 million so dont get your hopes up Norwich, Grant Holt is good but is not worth more than Yakubu who is being sold for 2 million and hes been in the premier league longer and scored more goals so why is Holt worth more? Stop dreaming, even if you do get around 4-5 million for him the club that buys him are stupid! he should of not been an person in trying to leave Norwich they made him15 goals in the prem for a fat not to bad. Better than Lambert who is still yet to prove.himself at the highest level. FOOLHow is Everton (or Sunderland for that matter) a newly promoted team?? Lets be honest, he could go to any EPL club except the top 6-7 because he's quite cheap for a couple of seasons of 10+ goalsHolt to Southampton? I needed a laugh. Thanks for that one.Haha ok i think we'll talk again after lambert scores 15 in 1 premiership season which will happen... NEVER!Lambert has outscored Holt in every division in the football league. Hopefully we'll see the same next seasonRight for all you who really think Holt is better than Rickie Lambert watch him play watch how he controls the ball he scored more than Holt did in the championship fact! he's good, technically gifted and can read and write unlike someone i know :L So just watch He is better than Holt all day long! and he is faster than Holt proven fact as well!

Katlego Mphela will be unveilved as an Swindon player either over the weekend or early next week. He flew over for talks on thursday and the details of his contract have been discussed on Friday.
Mphela will be on an wages similar to the rest of the squad but will have significant goal bonuses, which was been negotiated by several members of Swindon's scouting 'consultansy' scheme.

Source: Scout @ STFC(9)(5)This better be true he looks classDon't believe this. Fact cannot spell cconsultancy doesn't give rumour much credibility.It's not true.

Di Canio will be only signing English players after he made some very dubious foreign signings at the beginning of last seasonNOT TRUE. Mphela has just signed a new deal with his club in SA, Mamelodi Sundowns.Di canio has said 80% british signings so 1-3 signings from abroad are still possible

Bristol City set to sign English born Jeremy Kyle from CSKA Sofia FC.(0)(19)Trisha is joining Arsenal as wellYeah jerry springer signs for derby and dale whinton signs for bristol roversWill he have his own tv show full of mingers and chavs?His disciplinary record is said to be very poor. His instance of running up to the ref and shouting 'you sir, are a disgrace. Get off my stage' often leads to a straight red.

Southend are trying to sign young Shrewsbury striker Tom Bradshaw.(7)(9)Southend's best chance is getting him on loan. There's zero chance of him joining them permanently.I don't think we really want him.Possibly a loan move as part of a deal for Ryan Hall?You can have him if we get hall in returnPossibly a loan deal as part of a deal for Ryan Hall?Heard it's just a loan move providing Shrewsbury pay is wages.We are close to signing gavin tomlin and we don't need another striker if we get him so this is unlikely to happenWe only need strikers who can actually score!! And Gavin Tomlin doesn't really fit the bill6 goals in 10 games for gillingham, can play up front and on the wing, tomlin is ideal for play it along the ground football not hoofball which cost us last season.Bradshaw is proven at this level,i'd be glad to see him sign.Bradshaw proven at this level? how?Wales u21 at 18 years old. Needs games on loan. wont play at Town... YetPos tom may go out on loan but that will be all
