Ex rangers and northern ireland striker David healy has been having talks with carlisle united and is discussing a short term deal to put himself in the shop window for a future move.

Thats Healey level now, no disrespect intended. He could play up front with Craig Beattie

Healy is on trial at Preston. Playing tonight against Plymouth.

Healy didn't play against Plymouth so where is he...?

Bristol Rovers look set to sign Fabian Broghammer after his impressive trial at the club.

McGhee has also stated that he was impressed with Iain Turner so I contract could be offered up to the former Everton GK.

The manager has also alluded to wanting 4 signings MINIMUM this window thought to be the aformentioned, a CM and a ST.

So basically what the manager has said in his interviews then....

You would think rovers would need another centre back aswell because they've only got 3

4 signing maximum not minimum. We're close enough to the 55% already



06 Aug 2012 22:10:12
Bristol City will sign Baldock on loan with the option of a permanent transfer. After drawn out negotiations this is the best compromise for all three parties.

Charlton have told Millwall they will pay no more than 100k for N'Guessan once Paul Hayes goes to Brentford. Millwall want 150k.

Take the 100k Kenny let him GO,AND buy BEAVON! A better player! Cmon KJ!

Please sign him!!

Charlton aren't even looking at him. Beavon will cost Millwall minimum of 500K so that rules them out!

Hot off the press, Brentford are to sign Denny Mundee from the electric club in Bournemouth>>>> up the beessssss




Millwall dreamin again!


Wow we take a player on loan and he scored like 3 goals and he is a FORWARD who is suppose to score goals! And you don't sign every player that unfortunately has to experience millwall do you!?

I must admit it is a great experience playing for millwall! just ask teddy sheringham & big cascarino! we've still got touchy charlton fans on here, dear oh dear!

Dany N'Guessan isnt going anywhere, he's played well in pre-season and im sure Kenny Jackett will give him a go

N'guessan is a versatile player and is capable of goals as he is shown for charlton and in pre season...millwall should keep him unless charlton pay big!

N'guessan is a versatile player and is capable of goals as he is shown for charlton and in pre season...millwall should keep him unless charlton pay big!
N'Guessan is a lump and is capable of getting taps in and flukes as he showed for us last season...Millwall should sell him at any opportunity as you have better.

N'guessen is a great player. Millwall dont need to sell n'guessen wants to play more often then he will prob be able to at millwall so would look to go to a team wih less talented players. I.e charlton. But he should show he has more ambition the. That and fight for a millwall starting 11 place. End if thread

I'd have beavon b4 n'guessen anyday! bev is a team player, not just a goalscorer!

TO ALL MILLWALL FANS JUST HAVE A LOOK AT 'THE BEST OF BEAVON' on YOU TUBE! Not against the greatest opposition I will be the 1st to admit! But a lively player I THINK?! WE COULD DO WORSE!

We will not get any premier stikers on season loans im afraid, fact! i really do think that beavon is worth a try at the very least 3-350k! a bargain! if kj could find any other strikers, where are they?

Dont worry about Beavon just because he plays for Wycombe! Give him the service and he will score GOALS! FACT!



06 Aug 2012 20:37:20
Portsmouth looking to take Derek Riordan on trial

Why is this so unbelievable? We've got trialists ready to sign that most league 1 clubs would be envious of. So this would not surprise me at all. Club will be sorted one way or another by Friday so if that's the case the league will have to let us sign Atleast 20 players to be competitive. Simple as that and appys already stated he's got better players lined up to those on trial also so I fully expect us to be fighting hard for top ten next season wether haters on here like that or not.....

^^^ Your dreaming!

Agree that Pompey will do well this season although the league's penalty 10 pts will probably put paid to a promotion push. However, lower part of top 10 is realistic.



06 Aug 2012 20:10:02
Sam Mantom is rumoured to be returning to Walsall on a season long loan.

Quite right. We struggled too last year, but Sadler, Smith, Beevers and Westlake were all highly sought after - not to mention Ledesma. My concern is we have struggled for the last two years due as we lacked a 15 goals a season striker. Have we sorted that problem - the jury is out.

He was great for us last season, actually played the ball on the floor but i feel if he signed on then he will struggle to make it onto the first 11 if we have chambers, cuvelier, and featherstone as CM's

Walsall are in real real trouble
Evidenced by the. They have 4 senior professionals left. The rest kids etc

Perhaps our share of the 350k fee for Anthony Gerrard going to Huddersfield can be used to help pay for another quality player like Cuvelier.



06 Aug 2012 20:24:13
Rangers are tring to sign francisco sandaza on a free aswell as a brazilian trialist



06 Aug 2012 20:20:11
Manchester united will break there bank budget and sign lucas moura and robin van persie this season.

Colin kazim richards could be set to join Blackburn after impressing while on trial in holland

I thought he was on trial at west ham ?

He is on trial at west ham

He was flew to holland to join rovers few days ago and is set to sign on loan

This is true, check rovers website and telegraph



06 Aug 2012 19:47:20
Ipswich are set to sign Steve Davies from derby county by Thursday

Also notts county midfielder Alan judge will be in talks at the end of the week with Ipswich.

Paul jewell is also hoping to land Hartlepool defender Paul Hartley in time for the opening game with Blackburn.

You dont have 1 million for steve davies as they want cash not 500k + 500k in add ons thats they wont see.

Alan judge will go leciester after he was at their ground this morning ssn

It's all rubbish about judge. We already turned down a 1 mill bid for him

Hartley is keget him.y to Pools defence .It will need a large offer to

Davies having talks at Darrow road this morning.genuine,just seen him enter the club traing ground with his agent and wife.

Judge in Ipswich today......spotted at training ground

Sheffwed have signed some decent players this summer antonio etc am worried for us in the first game off the season,need to make some big name signings for once!

Well i always go to notts county games home and away all the time and judge has improved loads as we brought him 4 100k from blackburn , with only 1year left on his contract it would make sense if we cashed him in or wait untill january too see where we are in the league however all the roumers about judge being at ipswich today ( 7th august 2012) probably isn't true as he played todsy vs Nottingham forset as i was there and he slso played Against Aek Athens and again i was there so i very doubt the roumers have any truth inside them!



06 Aug 2012 19:37:12
Austrian and Werder Bremen LB Sebastian Prodl is on trial at Stoke. He is starting at LB in tonights friendly V Torquay.

He might be a free agent, but I am not sure.

It's not prodl it's the other Sebastian that plays for werder Bremen, polish international

Prodl is a centre back
you must mean Boenisch

It is Boenisch but apparently hes awful

He played ace in the euro's would be a great signing for stoke

Not so sure... prefer ollson or warnock

He player good last night, just lacked in fitness with not doing much training since his contract ran out with Werder Bremen

Played ace? I read he had an absolute shocker and the club interested at the time withdrew their bid he was that bad! Not seen him in the flesh though so all hear say. I suppose on a free he's minimal risk either way. DL

I was at the euros and watch all of polands groups games and this guy was out standing in every game he played



06 Aug 2012 19:34:35
Morecambe striker Kevin Ellison is on Paolo DiCanio's radar for their upcoming L1 season. A reported £100,000 plus player has been bid

r Eggert Jonsson who has failed to imp
ress since his move from Hearts.

Hope so,he has been woeful since he arrived

Wednesfield wolf

You can bloody have him free of charge i will deliver him for you



06 Aug 2012 19:30:01
Rubbish lee Barnard is not coming from southampton

Not sure what 'coming from southampton' means but one thing for sure the saints will need to trim first team to 25 players for the premiership season. My guess is that lee barnard will be reluctantly released due to that reason. Championship clubs or ambitious neighbours like bournemouth would be likely.

Southampton do not need to trim their squad, if you look on the official southampton fc website at the player profiles there are 28 players of which only 20 fit into the 25 man squad, of the other 8 players: 1 is on loan (aaron martin) and 7 are classed as underage ie born on or after 1 january 1991. Therefore expect at least 5 more signings!



06 Aug 2012 19:28:18
Liverpool are considering a move for
Watford starlet Sean Murray, he is like
ly to cost them £7m

Why is everyone on about him.Hardly anyone knows him.If hes as good as watford fans say he is he would easily get into the ireland national team yet hes not even a regular in the u21 whether he has any caps.Jeff hendrick,aidian white and shane duffy are the 3 big prospects for ireland.

Whatever mate. Look at his record for goals and assists last season. He is miles better than Conor wickham and as good as Ashley young at his age Man city were after him. Would bd a bargain at 7m. Should be double that.

Stick a 0 after it and we might talk - otherwise - stay in the shallow end - Murray will cost big boys money!

First replier obviously has no idea what they are on about!
I'm not even a watford fan and i think it's pretty obviously that Sean Murray is the next big thing.

If he rejected city would he really go liverpool? hes def good but still has a lot to learn. looks better than ashley young at his age but a lot of young players can go awol. hopefully he keeps it up. he ll be a key player for us this season and next. and he only just signed a new contract so doubt he ll move

Didn't United just sign Nick Powell for big money? Murray is twice the player Powell is.

I support Watford and it would be more likely he went to Liverpool as they have a better academy and youth setup than city. Liverpool have plenty of promising young players unlike city who have only produced 2 class players

Brendan Rodgers knows him from his watford days

Murrey will not move this season as he is a level headed lad and dont wanna dissapear in a big club...He will be watfords next 10 million sale. End of this year he may go to udinese for champions league experiance.

Sean Murray is a massive prospect for Ireland - Trappatoni only reviews players on DVD from premiership games!!

Murray has only just made the switch to the U21 from the U19's

The New Italian connection at watford should see him make the step up over the World Cup campaign.

I doubt that there any truth in this even though he was linked with pool in 2010.

As far as I'm aware his parents act as his agent - not looking to move as he's still developing as a player.

I'm a Watford fan and Murray is really not that good, 7 mil would be ludicrous. He genuinely does nothing in games and just scores tap ins, plus has a good set piece delivery. If you watch him in games, he actually can't dribble or do very much useful.

The guy claiming to be a watford fan above blatantly isnt, I went to every game last year and he was pretty much continually watford's best player after Christmas, plus his goal against west ham was far from a tap in



06 Aug 2012 19:27:05
Swansea manager michael laudrup has kevin mirallas top of his wanted list from olympiakos.

Kevin Mirallas on his way to Arsenal ....

Mirallas will only join Arsenal if Van Persie leaves but Utd,City&Juve all seem to have given up on signing him. Hearing this rumour alot recently!



06 Aug 2012 19:27:00
Danny Higgintbotham could join N.



06 Aug 2012 19:26:26
Neil Danns is a target for Neil Warnock7's
Leeds but Leicester are keen to hold
onto the midfielder

Utter rubbish, firmly in Pearson's plans.

I saw him play for Palace against Leeds 2010/11 season where he scored the only goal, worked his socks off and was the best player on the pitch by a country mile. I'd say 'yes please!'


Would be a good signing for Leeds (even though he struggles to train)... Shame it won't happen though as he'll be one of our key midfielders this season.



06 Aug 2012 19:25:20
Nottingham Forest, Blackburn and Leic
ester are in a three way battle for the
signature of West Brom striker Simon

Forest apparently see this as a key signing to get them back in the Premiership. Oh dear how the mighty have fallen, an average Chumpionship player at best. Scoring record is 10 in 65 for WBA says it all really.Good attitude bags of energy just not enough class and too slow for the top flight.Good luck if he goes will feel at home in that league.

Cox would be good a leicester because of the manager and style of play... west brom will probably want 2-4 million for a great prospect... COYB

Def double figures in the champo, not given a chance at the albion... good player, deserves his chance to shine!! boing boing... good luck to cox where ever he ends up!!

I disagree....Coxy is a top Championship player and his goal record at the Baggies not brilliant because he was played out of position 99% of the time. When we played Cardiff in the cup last season he played his normal position and scored a Hat-trick. This was against a top Championship good luck to him, he'll do well with any club in the Champ and wouldn't surprise me if he finishes the leagues top scorer.


Cox would also do well a Forest, despite the previous problems at the club. Cox is a player that plays to get goals but isn't greedy. To add to this Cox has a cracking finish, just look at some of his goals, like the one at White Hart Lane the season before last... top bag what a finish. He could easily double figures in the championship, and probably 20 goals. Player of the season in the championship.

Simon Cox is an excellent striker.
When i've seen him it is obvious he has an excellent first touch, good control, he's quick, he's a team players with a good work ethic & best of all, if he's played as a striker when he's given the service he can finish.
Never got much of a chance at WBA and if he's played out of position then goal scoring records not that bad?
Along with Jordan Rhodes probably one of the top future prospects. This would be a great signing for Forest.



06 Aug 2012 19:07:54
Ipswich to try and offload bullard, his off field antics, poor form and wages believed to be a minimum of 15k a week all leading to this decision, ipswich assistant manager said after the 3-1 win over west ham that bullard was not in the squad as he is not part of the equation at this time. If anyone will take him remains to be seen, although 2 chinese clubs are reported to be interested

It,s the way he has been treat by Jewell,was played out of position last season.jewell is clueless.a good player does not loose his skill over night.get real



06 Aug 2012 19:14:57

Baldock at Ashton gate Wednesday Morning to sign loan deal until Jan with 1.6m deal completed then if Baldock is happy in Bristol.



06 Aug 2012 19:06:50
Leeds Utd are set to offer Crystal Palace Ross McCormack plus £2.2 million for starlet Johnathan Williams

I want Ross McCormack at Palace, but I don't want to see Williams leave, not even for that money as well. We could keep him for a couple of seasons and get a lot more! - Palace Fan

Dont be stupid! Jonny Williams is the new Wilshire and Palace know he will be a 10m player like Zaha after this season.

Leeds can piss off I'd rather keep Williams and not have 2 mill and RM we've lost way to many players already can't afford to loose any more

Would not sell Jon Williams, future Crystal Palace Captain for Ross McCormack, maybe a one hit season wonder - Palace Fan since 1974



06 Aug 2012 19:03:33
All that seems to be if rumour at the moment is regarding. Does anyone actually have some useful/inside information on this or is it just a rumour that's got out of hand {Ed044's Note - what?



06 Aug 2012 18:57:39
With Craig Bellamy a done deal, Cardiff are now focusing on a new winger and RB, the main targets at the moment are for wingers, Chris Burke & Nicky Maynard. Malky hoping to secure one of the wingers by the end of this week.

Nicky maynard is a striker, not a winger you person! {Ed013's Note - West Ham played him on the wing so that is why wires maybe crossed}

He probably knows hes a striker but he just wants him here, i heard differently it was Craig Bellamy to sign this week with Tommy Smith maybe this week with Bellamy or longer and the defender we are after is Kelly from liverpool on loan which i dont know if the last one is true i havent heard rodgers playing him in pre season so it might happen

Bellamy is not nailed on. My contacts say he has alternative plans. Just presuming he will come does not mean its nailed on!
Bellamy will move to the championship but it's going to be a lot further north than Cardiff (not Leeds)!

Wheres the proof of bell-end signing for city, he will chase the money for his (African kids/football academy) i said before he will sign for qpr if they want him that bad! If city want bellers they will have to offer a minimum of 35.000.00 a week wages as thats what qpr will offer him

/ Thats why bellamy has Stated that he want to come home? and the liverpool echo has said bellamy is leaving on a free to come back to cardiff?

Bellamy is a done deal.

Your contacts are completely rubbish then if thats what they are saying.
Why move to any other championship club none are as good as cardiff



06 Aug 2012 18:56:27
Everton to get Donavon and Tim Cahill on loan in January, been told by Jimmy Martin the kitman

Can't see Cahill going back. He isn't quite up to it anymore.



06 Aug 2012 18:46:47
Wolves are looking to sign the 17 year old swedish star who has been on trial with them for the past two weeks. Stale solbakken likes the look of him and will sign within the next week.

This is 17-year old Swedish midfielder, Tim Jakobsson from IK Frej. One for the future?



06 Aug 2012 18:45:10
Michael kightly will sign for stoke by the end of the week after wolves accepted undisclosed offer him. Source sky sports



06 Aug 2012 18:44:18
stoke will sign free agent Sebastian Boenisch who is a left back on a 3 year deal . the player recently left werder bremen

By all accounts he played so bad they withdrew the contract offer of the table



06 Aug 2012 18:43:25
Tom Taiwo deal still a possibility at Bradford. A striker may well be leaving to balance the books/finance the deal. Central midfield still a priority despite signing Nathan Doyle. this space. Being announced today.

Not chance

What is happening. Is he signing or NOT

Still watching this space

Not signing him confirmed by Parkinson at fans forum tonight compensation carlisle want is way too high.



06 Aug 2012 18:38:34
michail antonio has signed a 4 year deal at sheffield wednesday source official swfc website

Rhys griffiths and wolves winger
Johnny Gorman!
Jose Q

Now this may sound bad but im a real dedicated plymouth argyle fan and evreyone is talking about us getting promoted but im not being funny but realisticley with the squad we have were only going to be a mid table team bottom half



06 Aug 2012 17:49:29
Tamas Kadar could be given a two week trial at Portsmouth next week

But he may have to wait for the courts to run through the trials of previous Pompey directors!

Yet someone else that hasent got a clue on Pompey matters. We ll be sorted by the end of the week. Then it's game on for Pompey....

^^ Some Pompey fans don't have a clue whats going on! Your still on the verge, there's a real chance you will be liquidated.

Former Newcastle defender Tamas Kadar, who was released by the St James' Park outfit when his contract expired in the summer, has signed a two-year deal with Eredivisie outfit Roda JC.

^^ post 4 yeah us pompey fans do know whats going on its in the papers every day and fans like you keep reminding us what a mess we are in, pompey got a few players on trial so they will be sign when the deal goes through



06 Aug 2012 17:33:39
Wolves were today being linked with Poland international midfielder Slawomir Peszko. The 27-year-old Cologne midfielder or winger, who has 24 caps, was reportedly at Compton training ground for a medical this afternoon with a view to signing.

This is true. It all depends on sale of Kites to Stoke though



06 Aug 2012 17:31:09
Colchester are poised to sign Britt Assombalonga and Gavin Massey on season long youth loans from Watford, this gives Watford the option to cancel the deal at any time.



06 Aug 2012 17:28:05
Sunderland have made a last offer of 12mil for fletcher. If this is rejected they will look elsewhere. I for one am abit worried at this point we should have bought fletcher olsson nzonzi mcgeady and Guidetti by this point. Not long untill the season starts and we need to bed players in. Get ya check book out mr short or we are bottom half of the league.

MON never buys till near the end of window, every yr at celtic would be the same, expect signings to start in about a week or so.................bhoywonder

Being a smb you should be used to being in the bottom

Always the same at villa mate flurry right at end of window usually, he does things his way

I've heard and this from both Celtic and Villa fans that MON always signs late in every window. Forum posts also say the same, so no need to despair... just yet! FTM

I hope you get those players in time for your game agianst us this weekend(Derby).Be good to see how how players play against them

We were in the bottom half last year........Need to sign at least four quality players asap.If we start slowly we could be facing a relegation battle....



06 Aug 2012 17:12:54
Huddersfield Town are ready to snap up free agent Danny Gabbidon

Could be a possibility, number 6 shirt still free, he will know Joel Lynch through Wales squad, plenty of experience at 33 but no doubt he could still do a good job at championship level.

Was fat, slow and dodgy for us last season

Hope so

Doubt it, we are just about to sign Anthony gerrard

We're signing Anthony Gerrard on a 3 year deal according to sky sports news so can't see this happening!

Anthony Gerrard just about to sign, forget, gabbidon, morrison etc, top defender this lad!

Does anyone read the Examiner?
Anthony Gerrard to sign for Town! A solid adition.

Not happening town are instead signing Anthony gerrard



06 Aug 2012 17:11:48
torquay united have taken carl baker on trial from coventry city along with jerel ifil and george artemi

Um Carl Baker is in 1st team so we would not let him go

You cannot take a player on trial that is contracted to a club. Nonsense feed regarding Baker. Under contract, happy and playing including Saturday just gone.

Not ccfc Carl baker unless he could play in Torquay on Friday night and then accy Stanley on Saturday. I don think he was ever a trainee at Torquay either as the torquay site states.

No they haven't taken Carl Baker on trial. They've taken Karl Baker on trial. Different spelling! Different person!

CARL Baker trained with Cov on the friday and played in our game against Accrington Stanley on Saturday.

KARL Baker played for Torquay on friday so theres no way he could have been in two places at the same time.

Unless its two different people!! So no...Coventrys Carl Baker isn't on trial at Torqauy...

It's not covs Carl baker. It's Karl baker from a non league club

Carl baker played 45 minutes for torqay united in 5-0 win over bideford last friday while on trial from coventry city

No he never. He played for Coventry on the Saturday and is playing for Coventry as we speak. We have Karl Baker. Not the Coventry guy

Different Carl Baker, he's not available, he's one of our first choice players and played today. Do your research you have a player called Karl Baker on trial from non league.

No it was Karl baker cannot believe everything on BBC

He played today for Coventry, so yeah he must definatly be on trial at Torquay. bunch of persons....

What so he did a one day trial then came straight back to Cov and played for us the next day...i doubt it. He's even played in todays game!

Funny how he played 45 mins for cov today


Great signing hopefully get us back to the championship!



06 Aug 2012 17:08:27
Norwich City have accepted a bid for Simeon Jackson from an unknown Championship side and
will replace him with Gabon forward
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang who Norwich are currently negotiating a transfer fee for with Saint Etienne at an estimated price of £5.5m which could rise to £6.5m

I really rate Jackson hope he will stay . But this player aubameyang is just the type of player that could keep us up & maybe a top half Finnish again . OTBC

I am aware that Bristol City made a bid towards the end of last week after talks broke down with Sam Baldock however, I was told that it was rejected. Perhaps they have returned with a better offer?

Quick get the shirt done now before they charge per letter again!

Didn't jackson sign improved terms etc ?

I'm pretty sure that most championship sides are known... rather farfetched rumours seeing as Martin looks a more likely candidate to leave.



06 Aug 2012 17:07:40
Iwelumo interesting Jewell, the 33 year old is out of Zola's plans and is allowed to leave on a free.



06 Aug 2012 17:02:11
Brighton to sign a striker from Saints. Not sure which but def being announced tonight.

If its a striker from saints for fee i would expect it is Lee Barnard, otherwise it wold be forte but i dont see him being good enough for the championship. especially since you chaps should be pushing for playoffs or higher. jas93 (saints fan)

Complete nonsense! They wouldn't sell lambert, just brought sharp.... None of the others are good enough

Lee Barnard has be told he can leave Southampton perhaps him but I don't think he is a big target man

Still not good enough.

Or not

Another announcement that didn't happen

Its kitson i feel.just a concern on wages? on a forturne at pompy ?belive gue tried to get him on loan ,before they got into the situation they are in today. money was the issue .gus said in argus report ,he gets to much money for us to be intrested in sighning him on loan ,at the time albion could no way afford him . things different now. who knows



06 Aug 2012 16:45:45
kay to go on a 6 months loan deal to tranmere

This move seems to have gone on to long now its obvious he is not signing for us and my question is do we need him or not

No he's not. We need a CB which is not his best position.

Kay who ? Peter Kay ? Vernon Kay ? Kay Sera Sera ? If you're going to post on here then at least try and make it clear who you're posting about !

I'm plumping for Agent K (Men in Black)

Michael kay signed last year didnt he?

We don't need Kay! Got Wallace power Harrison palmer robinson why do we need another central midfielder?

Can not get kay on loan because of wages stop the rumours that he is coming

Antony Kay has signed for MK Dons on a two year deal (MK Dons website) - can we now all move on!



06 Aug 2012 16:43:23
Danny Gabidon will join htafc in the next 48 hours providing his wage demands arent too high

Burton Albion are to offer trials to defenders Darren Dennehy and Cian Hughton.



06 Aug 2012 16:00:10
Trials for Jamie Ashdown, Walid Abeid, Nabil Souni, Eduardo "Dudu" Favretto and Carlos Rodrigues Correa were unsuccessful - Souni should have been signed to the Development squad and Dudu should have been signed to the first team, but we have a lot of central midfielders in the first team, so it doesn't really matter.

Jayson Leutwiler, Romeo Castelen and Jacobo Sanz Ovejero are still on trial - Castelen will probably be staying if we can't get Adam Hammill, though we could use both as we have few wingers. Carayol is right-footed and plays on the left, Castelen is right-footed and plays on the right and Hammill is left-footed and can play anywhere.

Most people who didn't like Hammill as Boro last year, you need to remember that he wasn't with us very long. He only got to play 10 matches and half of those he was subbed or came on as a sub. He's only 24 and shows great promise for the future. I'd be happy to have him back.

Jamie ashdown has already signed for Leeds



06 Aug 2012 16:11:57
Moussa Konate 2.5M
Micheal Kightly 2M
Alan Hutton 2M
Martin Olsson 4M
Micheal Owen

Jones (West Ham)
Etherington (West Ham)
Upson (Southampton)
Higgingbotham (Wolves)

Also don't be suprised if Stoke do pay out for a 'big name' towards the end of the window. They're just clearing out the 'dead wood' first.....Stoke under Pulis will never do early deals, In Tony Stoke trust..........

Sunderland not interested in upson also you have plenty competition for olsen willing to pay more than 4m

So, we haven't signed Ness and Cameron already then as well as Kightly in the next day or so..?
Late deals indeed.. ;)

Didn't coates say in the sentinel that he wasnt spending big this season ??

You kidding? Pulis isn't really wanting to spend and you are talking about premiership clubs in West Ham and Southampton the odds of them wanting Upson or Etherington are minimum... Why would they want 'dead wood'?

10.5mill is hardly spending big is it.....and as the poster sed, its just something that wudnt surprise you if stoke did splash on deadline day. Coates wants to cut back on spending and generate funds by player sales and reducing the wage bill, but believe me, if a quality player is there for the taking, he will pay the money!

What coates said was the squad was bloated and some were being shipped out to make way for new signings late in the window

Coates has money don't you worry about it..! Last time I checked he was worth around 800million and that's growing minuet upon minuet! cut-backs yeah good one. Coates is a very clever man and will always surprise people expect atleast one big summer signing

Just a point even though I have nothing to do with this, even though Coates has hundreds of millions in the bank that doesn't mean he'd be willing to use it on the club. In fact he may not want to spend much on the club at all some chairmen these days try to turn profits on their assets it's called having business sense.

Millwall are going to sign stuart beavon from wycombe for 350000. Deal should be completed within 48 hours

GOOD, lets hope this is true!?

He will be signing for Preston. Laird preferred Preston to Millwall too.

If this is true, would be a good signing for the'wall! a goalscorer who can prove he can score goals at a 'higher level' a bargain!

Millwall do not want to pay 350k they have just had 250k rejected and will probably bid 300k at most


We will just have to see! COYL

Deal wont be done that quickly but will happen before Crawley int he cup next tuesday.



Have you even seen this Beavon play, 28, had one good season at league one level, Wycombe are asking around 500k, NO thanks. Theres better than him for that money

Wycombe are asking for 350k. Worth a go. Morison was 26 and playing non league. Then came to millwall and scored around 40 goals and got a move to the prem.

I think BEAVON is worth a Try/Go! Millwall will not get any Prem League strikers on season LOANS, ie kane or Afobe!


Do you still believe Beavon will prefer Millwall to Preston? Just like Laird he realises Preston are a far bigger club with better prospects.

Blackburn Rovers manager confirms to SSN that he has bid for Jordan Rhodes of Huddersfield Town! If we sell to them I'd be amazed! No disrespect intended but selling to a Championship rival would be insanity!!


Already says on Huddersfield examiner website that we are going to reject the offer

It's not going to happen. Dean Hoyle has stated that when he was just a fan before he made his fortune the biggest midtake Town ever made was selling Marcus Stewart to Ipswich who at the time were our biggest rivals for promotion to the premier. Dean simply won't sanction this.

Turning down 5m would be even more insane. Unproven at this level and value could more than half if he has a poor three month

Everton looking to bid for him {Ed044's Note - i've not heard that 1 but huddersfield are upset with kean for making the bid public and have turned it down

It reportadly was 6 million and it says hoyle wont seel to anyone in the same division so trot on blackburn with your s*** manager lol

I think any club going in now is a gamble hence why most people arent! if he storms the champ, ur still only looking a 8-12mill max in Jan (which is what HTFC want now) for a top championship player eg. Wickham, young. but if he doesnt...worth the wait i think. imo he's prob a 3-4mill player now so its not in HTFC interest to sell unless stupid bid comes in so he's staying put.

Right i dont understand were u get all these rubbish rumours from but rovers have mad an offer of 6 million and id be very surprised if they rejected the offer {Ed003's Note - It was}

Selling to a championship rival would be insanity yep your right same goes with charlie austin

Turning down 5 million insane? It's worth the risk and we don't need the money!

Bit of a reality check needed here. Rhodes had a great season in L1 but many good L1 strikers don't adjust to the champ. The amount of cash being bandied around is ridiculous for another unproven risky player. In today's market a bit of realism suggest a 3m price tag would be very generous

On the examiner website it says the bid was 2million rising to 4million! Nowhere near to even make us think about selling!


It says on the Huddersfield examiner website Blackburn put in a 2 million bid for Rhodes.

Blah blah only League 1 blah blah not proven at champ level blah blah, listen folks, the only person who's opinion on this matters is Dean Hoyle, if says says bid 8 million or keep your mouths shut thats what happens, what you, me or anybody thinks is irelevent :Op


Right, all this 'he is unproven at championship level' dont care he kicked arse in L1 and we are confident enough he will do something similar in championship. SO THAT IS WHY WE WONT ACCEPT ANYTHING LESS THEN 8 MILLION. So pay up or shut up, we dont care if any one else thinks he's worth 2-4 million, we dont want to sell him!!!!!

Why go to Blackburn there a small club maybe a big championship side or lower prem team

"Rhodes had a great season in L1 but many good L1 strikers don't adjust to the champ."
Grant Holt, Rickie Lambert, Charlie Austin, Matty Fryatt, Stephen Morison and Danny Graham must be the exception to the rule then!
Rhodes hasn't just been a good L1 striker, his record states he's been one of the greatest!

Sounds like you got Harry back!!!!!!

Barnsley have signed ex derby and reading midfielder tomasz cywka

Should be a decent signing for em, didn't see much of him last season at Reading but showed glimpses of his potential when given a chance. Reckon we most likely would have signed him if we didn't go up.

Agree there showed Signs he could be a good player should be a good signing for you never really got a chance at Reading

Good signing for Barnsley, wasnt really given a chance at Derby but glimpses showed he has real potential.

Wasn't given a chance at Derby? He played about 40 games!

The lad made one mistake at Derby and Nigel "I only got this job because my dad's Brian" Clough slaughtered him. After that he was left in the reserves. He's a good player I actually hoped Reading would take a punt on him and sign him for longer. Good luck to the boy.

Good luck to the fella, felt Clough was harsh on him.

And the whole of last season he played, ooh 10 minutes!!

He looked quality when he came on against Rochdale, should be a key player for us this season...we just need to get a few more in, season hasn't started properly yet and already we are ravaged by injuries and suspensions!

Adam Barton has moved to Coventry this morning. - Quote from Peter Ridsdale to local paper.

Official CCFC website confirmed Barton signing today. 3 year deal

Amazing how he has gone from being wanted by PL teams a year or two ago, to being bought by a fellow league one club.

^ Its what a bad injury does. He'll have prem teams after him again as the lad is talented. Sorry to see him go.

I know the boy has had a bad injury but whats the reason he has been sold? he also wasnt allowed to train with the first team during pre season! did he push for a move before the injury or does the guy have Attitude problems? just hard to beleive we got a 5million pound player for 50K all beacause of an injury



06 Aug 2012 14:52:08
Un confirmed rumour going about today! Gentlemen
i am told and am certain its true that there will be NO TAKEOVER/INVESTMENT AT LUFC.
Evidently there was a lack of funds forthcoming and the potential buyer did not have the cash to complete the purchase.
I would imagine the story will be made official within the next fortnight but the writing has been on the wall for a while.

I am not a Leeds fan, rather the opposite, but I feel for them. The only certainty was that KB would take out rather than put in, then hopes were raised for a takeover but with worries that the new owners would be of Portsmouth variety. Confidence that KB would do a good deal for the fans seems to be short of total.

Leeds deserve better than this. They have a manager that can get them out of the Championship (Premier League) but should be replaced if they go up.

Well thats bull was on the os that the potential investors had enough money to satisfy the football league and we're still in the due dilligence stage so telling porkies me thinks! irish leeds fan!



06 Aug 2012 14:50:04

Media in Turkey say Swansea City are interested in signing Ricardo Quaresma from Besiktas!

Seems Liverpool about to make a bid, manager new him from ties with Chelses

Ricardo Quaresma has too much of a bad boy image,
dissent with previous managers would be a bad fit for Swansea team ethics

Southampton set to bid £12 million for Tottenham centre back, Caulker. Southampton are also set to up their bid for Jack Butland to £9 million with Lee Barnard heading in the opposite direction to Birmingham. Olsen of Blackburn also expected to sign but on an initial season long loan, with a fee of £700k with a permanent view to sign for £5.5 million

Chuckle chuckle chuckle.........not in a million years!!

I'm a Saints fan - but let me get this straight - you think we are going to spend 21m on Caulker and Butland??

Dont think they have that money

What were you drinking when you typed this up? Not in a million years will we sign Caulker! Hes going to be a key player for Spurs. Also we wont be signing Butland as we don't want to pay the huge amount Birmingham want for him. Olsson is possible but Blackburn don't want to sell.


I'm a saints fan and think this person can count the amount of brain cells they have on one hand. Who gave them a keyboard? Sheesh

Yes we do. for the last time, saints have plenty of money but it's whether they will spend it or not.

"Dont think they have that money".....We have the money all right! But we wont be throwing it around for the sake of it.


Its not a question of wether we have the money, its a question of is the price right. And there is no way saints will pay 9 mil for butland, he just isnt worth that money. Caulker could be worth 10 mil but i doubt he would leave spurs, now king has gone he is third choice after dawson and kaboul.

Southampton have pulled out of the race for Butland cause it's utter idiocy to spend so much money on a keeper who is not worth half of it. He's worth 2-3 million tops. Especially seeing as his form at the Olympics is showing his very 'best'. Caulker would be much cheeper if we're going for him I doubt we'd spend more than 8 million. Finally Olsson is not worth 5.5 million if Southampton sign him it will be for a lot less I imagine a maximum of 3 million and even then I reckon they can do better.

Saints enquired about caulker and got knocked back. End of.



06 Aug 2012 14:22:25
Fulham expected to make another move to try and get Carlton Cole from West Ham. Martin Jol is reportedly preparing £5m bid for the hammers hitman to try and tempt him away. Meanwhile West Ham are in talks with
Yannick Sagbo, Moussa Konate and Sam Allardyce has also targetted Romelu lukaku after failing to land Andy Carroll. Lukaku is seen as the ideal front man for Sam's side. He is also 6'3 as is Andy Carroll but has more to offer with better hold up play and more power and pace.
Sam ALlardyce also looking to bring in Christian Silve to bolster the midfield and Boumsong

Hasn't boumsong just signed a new 2 year deal and been made club captain ?

I can carlton leaving he only has a year left on his contract

NOOOO!! Don't buy him jol! Think of all the other, better, younger players you could buy for that...

Fulham were interested in Cole but I don't think Jol is interested - it would be a big surpise especially if Cole wants big money. Lukaku is close to signing a loan move with Fulham and not West Ham especially as he has heard good reports from Mousa about the club.

Fulham set to sign andy carroll on loan and lukaku will go to west ham
craig bellamy set to sign for cardiff

West ham have made a bid for sagbo and is targeting
Lukaku on a season loan while also battleing for jemaine jenas

Come on. this is just a deluded whfc fan. Get 5m for Cantcontrol me a favour!As for you lot even thinking Tevez would go near you? Aragance is a sure factor for relegation. Stop dreaming and get realistic, if Cole cant get into your team, how on earth would he get into a confortable mid table team?



06 Aug 2012 14:18:51
Cardiff City are in pole position to re-sign Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy.

Cardiff have been chasing Bellamy's signature with Malky Mackay previously confirming his interest in bringing the forward back to the club.

It is understood Liverpool are reluctantly willing to let the Wales international leave Anfield for personal reasons.

Bellamy played for home-town club Cardiff on a season-long loan in 2010-11 after finding himself out of favour at Manchester City.

The 33-year-old joined Liverpool from City on a free transfer last summer and impressed during his second stint at Anfield.

Bellamy, who impressed for Team GB at the Olympics, has also attracted interest from Queens Park Rangers with Mark Hughes keen to be reunited with his compatriot.

However, QPR are facing a losing battle to land Bellamy as Liverpool are reluctant to let the forward leave to a Premier League rival and would prefer to see him move to Cardiff.

Liverpool are thought to be willing to let Bellamy return to Cardiff for free with the player keen to be closer to his family home.

Bellamys' only reason at all for wanting to leave is the fact he wants guaranteed first team football, nothing to do with how close to home he needs to be. It's not like Liverpool is too far from Wales!


Yeh liverpool is close to north Wales .....Cardiff is a bit further to the SOUTH !!

Yes he wants to play football as mutch as poss but also want to be close to is any full blooded welsh man.

There is a reason why he wants to be closer to his family I dnt think its suitable to say over the internet tho

Coily his whole family lives in cardiff and with his boys in cardiffs acadamy he has every reason to move to be close to the faily if he wanted first team football he would stay at liverpool wheres hes better than most of the players who play wide or move to qpr who are in the prem

Liverpool may not be to far from Wales but that would be the north of Wales. Cardiff is in the south. Why dont you try and comute that far to work every day. Come hone Bellers.

It isnt your right but its 3-4 times the amount maybe even more than that to go from cardiff to liverpool every day b'cos he dont even live in his own house in cardiff hes had to get somewhere to sleep in liverpool but its not just that he wants to finish his career with us said that and has proven that

{Ed000's Note -

Coming from Cardiff myself, Liverpool is miles away! LOL

As a QPR fan i think bellamy would have been a good signing but i must admit to having a new found admaration for him. Chosing his boyhood club shows footballers are not all about greed although i'd guess he's a very wealthy man anyway. As i said for us he'd have been a good signing but for cardiff he's an incredable signing i say good luck to him for me he was also GB's star turn at the olympics



06 Aug 2012 14:06:29
iain turner has signed for swindon town on a two year contrat and bostock has signed for swindon on a periment deal which is a 3 year deal

We dont sign anyone on 3 year deals so total rubbish rumour normally it would be 2 years and also with Bostock im not sure now we are going to get him if we do it will only be a loan.

Nothing official yet

Rubbish, absolute rubbish!

We signed caddis and ferry on 3 year contracts. with both to have further exyensions of 1yr if wanted. Caddis has already activated his extra year.

Just not true, Iwelumo due to sign for Swindon this week.

Caddis and Ferry are key to Swindon and are known to be, These players would be different, Turner would be No.2 Keeper and I do believe that Bostock will only come on loan :( as much as I wish otherwise ;)

Just announced that Swindon will not be signing Turner, good try but no prize this time!

Paolo has let turner go to earn contract at bristol rovers so how has he signed a two year deal source swindon advertiser

Turner's been released

IAIN Turner's trial at Swindon Town has been brought to an end.

The goalkeeper began training with the club last week and was involved in Town's friendly at Salisbury on Friday night.

But the Scot played for Bristol Rovers against Bristol City the following day, and Town boss Paolo Di Canio has allowed him to pursue a contract with the Gas.

Source - Swindon Adver

Iwelumo would be class signing if true



06 Aug 2012 14:02:15
any Middlesbrough fc news?

Anybody no what keeper he has gone for then out of the 2?


Sorry,way off with my spelling...leutwiler

Jayson Leutwiler has been offered long term contract according to the EG.

The young lad who we've had on trial,check the evening gazette it's got all the details

The Basel fc keeper leutwiler (the spelling is off the top of my head) according to the gazette

Yeh the swiss lad

08 Aug 2012 00:34:09
Yes Leautwitter (is that how its spelt). Offered him a long term deal. Stephen Pears recommended him to the club and they see great potential in him. They want Connor Ripley to go out on loan to a lower league club to gain match experience.

Looks like casterlan sorry with spelling is joining the boro hes a crock aint he aint palyed since 2010

Bristol City will sign Bradley Wright-Phillips from Charlton in a deal worth 1.75m. Charlton are set to sign City target Sam Baldock after he failed to agree terms.

Sam Baldock at press conference at Ashton Gate 11.30 Wednesday morning.

I don't think they have that sort of money. Also why would they get rid of wright-Phillips ?

Baldock won't sign for City he wants to stay in London. He would sign for Charlton but they don't have the money. As WHU fan I'd rather keep him

I don't think they have that sort of money. Also why would they get rid of wright-Phillips ?
Most people who don't see BWP game in game don't know he needs at least 4/5 easy chances to actually score. He could've had double his 22 goals last season if he wanted to. But its pointless anyway as BWP at the end of the day is happy and we (CAFC) can't afford Baldock and city can't afford BWP so neither transfer is going to happen.

Bristol city have a chairman worth around the billion mark now so money isnt an issue... he's already said money is available if mcinnes can identify the right players but due to these ffp rules its a new business model to ensure in the future of the club

Prefer Dean Bowditch or Lee Barnard, but ideally Le Fondre

We can afford him. we have been told if the right players come along at the right price we can have them.

Your chairman is worth a billion now I don't know if that's true but when he is worth a billion it means that he has a billion not Bristol city because he doesn't put every penny into BC, he has a house or two lots of cars clothes, a wife, bills and taxes ovary years, so no you can't afford him, your chairman couldnif he wanted BWP in his 5 a side team to play on Sunday

It is true, look it up. on the bristol city player he has already said money is available should del boy identify the right players..



06 Aug 2012 13:49:37
vaughan to crystal palace 1.5m

Which Vaughan ? James, David or Frankie

Hope not don't rate him as having potential to be good & Brum have reportedly bidded 1m

James Vaughan I would have thought. Though he wasn't that good here when he was on loan, doubt he's improved much due to injury. I don't rate him, there are plenty of better players we could spend 1.5 million on.



06 Aug 2012 13:39:06

Adam Barton has signed for Coventry city from Preston according to local rag.

Thx god over rated and lazy

Yep confirmed by CCFC.

3 year deal done and dusted bargain price 50k

Confirmed on bbc football website signed a 3 year deal for 100,000 reported fee

50k reported everywhere that could rise to 100k on promotion

Undisclosed 6 figure fee paid for Barton. That does not have to mean 100,000

No it doesn't, it means at least 100k, so where does 50k come from?



06 Aug 2012 13:24:51
Swindon news anyone? Went abit quiet since PDc said he wants defender and striker

It's gone quiet because they can't afford to buy anyone. Still waiting for Collins money( tribunal). Probably get it at 5 pounds a week!

Ha ha and your club are the biggest in league 1 . The tribunal date is set by the league so nothing to do with us. When the fee is agreed Swindon will pay but not before. You are Just sour that one of your better players has gone to another club in your division

Collins won't be over the top and we still have enough to bring in 3/4 players if needed :)

No we're not the biggest in lg1,but we are financially sound.swinedon will be in the same position they were in a few yrs lot have got short memories.



06 Aug 2012 13:14:58
West Brom are set to comlplete the signing of Markus Rosenberg next week. He has flown over to England for a second round of talks with head coach Steve Clarke and Technical Director Dan Ashworth

Good news, heard he's a good player..... Tottenham's Danny rose on season long loan and young PSG striker Bahreback on loan?

Rosenberg is very friendly with Olssen so this could be a bit of a softner to keep the central defender firmly at the hawthorns.I live in Sweden, unfortunately most Swedes dont rate Rosenberg very much, a bit of a headless chicken so should be an ideal replacement for Cox arf arf.

Havent heard of the Bahreback rumours.. Another CB would be nice but its not a position the club need to look at. If anything NEC CB Nuytink(excuse spelling) would be targetted if the CB position needs to be looked at. I'd personally like to see Rose in in. We are looking at getting another striker (rosenberg), possibly another winger and a left back. (Rose covers both of these positions). Chances of deals happening:

Rose 7 or 8/10
Rosenberg practicaly a done deal
Nuytink 5/10

Rosenberg on a free and 2 milion for Cox sounds like good business to me.
Jeremy Peace strikes again you have to admire his shrewd business decisions even if he is a tight fisted ***.

Has just signed up for three years.
Good bye Simon Cpx

Derby County and Millwall are battling it out to sign Alex Nimely on loan from Manchester City

So that means he'll go to Derby.

WE should just Pay Wycombe what they want for Beavon 3-350K, He is 'Useful'! COYL

Derby are looking to get a perm striker
with steve davies still here then get his replacement when he leaves.

Would be a great singing for millwall great potential

Decent player, the lad has terrific pace but as a striker doesnt score/assist at all which is the major flaw in his game. From a cov fan ......

Oh no i know another Derby striker with lightening pace but cant score.

Must retract the above statement now. Sorry Ty.

Heskey rejects Blackpool deal.

Thank god for that!

This is seriously good news for Pool. Having watched him play for the past 3 and a half years at the Villa I truly appreciate how awful this guy really is

How is this good news he is the best player in the world! and we should be weeping and cursing oyston because he PROBABLY offered him the same deal as he did to "God" 60 a week {Ed003's Note - 90)

Didn't get as far as talking about money I believe, this time it was the training ground that saved us!

He already had a deal sorted elsewhere came for a trial and was seen to be well below par so nowt lost to pool then ,look somewhere else plenty about wait and see.

He didn't have a trial at all! We contacted his agent who advised us he wasn't interested. Simple



06 Aug 2012 12:40:32
Sky have confirmed we have agreed fee for kightly to go to stoke.personally i dissapointed, would of thought he owed us after 3 years of sitting on treatment table!
Wednesfield wolf.

Wolves agreeing a fee has nothing to do with the player, its the club agreeing the innitial fee in which case they see it right to do so, so why blame kightly saying he owes you? he may not agree terms yet!

With the summer arrivals of Robert Snodgrass and Jacob Butterfield, Norwich's Andrew Surman is set to be loaned to Crystal Palace until January.

One comment only - Rubbish !

Im a Palace fan and would be well happy with that wont happen i can promise you

What a load of Rubbish, Surman signed a contract on improved terms in the summer why would Norwich then loan him out.

Butterfield has more chance of being loand than surman

Apparently 1m bid has been made to try and sign vaughan

What a load of dross! Surman will play a good part again this year! Signed a new contract a month ago!! Get decent rumours if your gunna post stuff on here!

In your dreams! expect surman to further enhance his reputation in the prem this season.

Who is making this stuff up? First it was Davy Claude Angan from Molde, quickly followed by Serigne Kara from Tromso. Last week I am guessing the same joker was promising that we would be signing Alaixys Romao from Auxerre. Now out of nowhere we are being linked with Aubameyang.
Much as I would like to believe these rumours, I think that that they are at best, idle speculation and wishful thinking by some loser with too much time on their hands and an over active imagination.

Ryan McGivern to join Crystal Palace on a season long loan from Manchester City.

Didn't he join Bristol City?

No thanks we already have three left backs better than McGivern

No, he was only there on loan.

Also he is poo and we have 2 left backs already

He was at Ashton Gate on loan - distribution poor, no pace, can't defend and not very good in the air - apart from that .....

He is a very good player but we dont need extra cover

Walsall have just signed Nicky Featherstone & Ben Purkiss, with no deal as yet for James Chambers. Dean Smith is also talking to Sam Mantom, Ben Parker, and either Dele Adebola otr Ricardo Fuller.

From a neutral perspective, I'd say Walsall are in a bad way right now.
Signing people from relegated League Two teams is not a good sign.

Mantom definatly wont happen not now we've signed Featherstone!

From a neutral point of view I'd worry about your own team. just because a team gets relegated doesn't mean they don't have 3 or 3
4 decent players. Shrewsbury and Notts County have signed players from Hereford this summer too.

Nicky featherstone is one of their (hereford) best players but he left because he is better than league 2... i think we signed purkiss only because we needed another defender..

As a Walsall fan I'm worried as I've seen Featherstone and Purkiss and I'm not too impressed. Purkiss is a Sunday League defender. Hoof, hoof & hoof.

Craig Bellamy will have a medical at Cardiff City next week!! :)

notts county hoping to sign carl regan
and tommy williams they both have been
on trail. notts are unlikely to sign lloyd
sam because kieth curle isnt open his
eyes and hes buying rubbish defender
tommy williams.


Are you Lloyd Sam's agent

I wish i was i would drive him down meadow lane make him sign

Deluded.........look at what Notts have, certainly do not need Sam

Apparently Oldham are set to try and sign him now

On trial with MLS New York Red Bulls now.



06 Aug 2012 12:01:41
Ian Holloway will speak to Michael Laudrup after tomorrow's friendly between Blackpool and Swansea about the signing of Stephen Dobbie JB

Lets hope

Really hope Dobbie comes to Blackpool

Rather have Dobbie then Heskey. Fingers crossed.

The Scottish messi will be welcomed back at bloomfield rd

Dobbie isnt a striker plays just behind we still need a forward but no need to panic there will be plenty on the heap come the 1st few weeks.



06 Aug 2012 12:00:17
oldham athletic ready to pounce for free agent lloyd sam after notts county dropped interest.

Not good enough for us.

Leeds looking to boost there strikeforce with the signing of maynard and beckford wants one at least fo burton friendly also a bid for templeton is on with carnie signing as back up after impressong in pre season mcormack to sign 3 yr deal and behind the strikers in a new role

Warnock says he hasn't enough money for two new players without selling first.

Yorkshire Evening Post.

What a load of rubbish

If this happend we would have the best team in the league , however with 1.5m it's not going to happen

Warnock hasn't said that anywhere.



06 Aug 2012 11:39:00
Danny Ward joining Sheff Wed from

Get a life not true

I bloody hope so Danny ward in my opinion is not worthy to wear the town shirt after town paid nearly a million for him has disappointed more than anything I would of kept Roberts and got shut of him instead. No passion no desire loses ball and doesn't give his all to win it back, can't beat 1st man with his crosses I could go on all day but ED won't out it in if ur takes people 2 days to read it. John

No why would he leave

Theres more chance of them signing wayne rooney, not happening

What a load of s**t... believe me wardy is going no where!

Doubtful, would require at least what we paid back for him which was I think close to a million, even then not sure we'd sell him


This is a new 1 since when ?/??

Highly unlikely

Very much doubt it!!

Don't be ridiculous!

Rubish. Ward is going nowhere plus still in contact

This guy who doesnt like danny ward on here... doesnt have a clue about football! he got town's most assists last year and also chips in with goals as well, but yet you dont rate him? your clearly one of these people that have never played football in his life but judges!! GET A LIFE SON!

No way

No chance, Wednesday have just spent the best part of 1 million on Antonio and would be required to pay a simular fee for Ward. They wont be doing that its more likely they will pay for Trecey, less money and better player.

Sell ward get quinn :-)

That is where you are wrong played football for 15 years scoring nearly 300 goals at a good standard trials for Barnsley and sheff wed only stopped playing when started coaching kids football that have just won cup double and came 2nd in there top division that they are in, so am guessing as I am level 2 coach I know more than you, know what it means to care about the club u play for and Danny ward does not care and i will be proven Right next season cause mark my words he is not good enough for championship, hope I am wrong but I don't think so. John

Last season Novak got towns most assists with 12 , hunt was second with 11 danny ward didnt have that many

Thanks point proven ward played more than Novak as well and still got most assists then our right back, well done Danny ward a million pound my left arm. John

Don't think this will happen. Ward has devalued since we paid a million for him cos he wasn't that good last season. Ward had the 3rd highest amount of assists last year with 10. Not very good considering he takes town's corners/free-kicks! Hunt would be far more productive in his position!



06 Aug 2012 11:38:24
Barnsley striker Craig Davies catches
the eye of Ipswich boss Paul Jewell

Sorry NOT for sale

We have signed Tomas cywka from reading

Barnsley have signed Tomaz Cywka

Hopefully, he's useless!

Hes the only decent striker weve got

Barnsley will sign GB defender Craig Dawson from West Brom for 600 thousand money from butterfield 1 millian

You won't sign Craig Dawson. He's a good young player for the future. While he may be loaned out, I'm sure West Brom won't be looking to sell him, and certainly not for 600k.

Not a chance west brom well sell him for 600k great prospect for the future worth more than 600k by far!



06 Aug 2012 11:34:48
Stockport looking at Lloyd Allinson a promising 18 year old goalkeeper from Huddersfield.

He went to my school

Saw him at a pre-season game a week ago, looked very shaky

06 Aug 2012 11:14:27
Following Joe Allens departure to Liverpool for 15m, Swansea will make an 8m bid for Hoffenheim midfielder Rudy. Swansea are also interested in signing Benfica striker Nolito and former West Ham midfielder Alessandro Diamanti.

Been down the Liberty alot this week and I've heard all these names in the ticket office and club shop and out and about in Swansea! Sounds promising if we were to sign them all!

Load of nonsense!! Know Joe and after concentrating on Team GB he's looking forward to meeting and talking to Michael Laudrup about his future with the Swans...

After his peformances for team gb looks like another large chunk of money wasted by liverpool

Whoever wrote the above comment your either blind deluded or disturbed as he was arguably the best outfield player for team gb

Been hearing these names around the Neath and Port Talbot area aswell! Spoke to a few blokes who are in an around the training ground alot and they said the prices for these players will be about:

Also hearing Kjaer from Wolfsburg aswell for about 6m!

Nolito is rated closer to 10m bit too spicy for Swansea

"looking forward to meet with the swans". hpw would you know are you his best mate? it just says he will be meeting with laudrup, nothing to do with looking forward to it

06 Aug 2012 10:25:48
Sam Baldock has agreed a medical
at Charlton the former West Ham
player will be announced as a
Charlton player by tuesday.

Strange as he was at London Colney this morning

He won't go anywhere if we don't pick up another striker so don't even start thinking he is a player for ur club he is a hammer until other circumstances forever a hammer

^^ agreed a medical doesn't mean he's had it!

How exactly do you "agree" a medical?



06 Aug 2012 10:23:01
Derby have renewed their interest in Dundee utd striker Jon Daly and are interested in Bristol City striker Brett Pitman along with Newcastle utd left back Shane Ferguson.



06 Aug 2012 10:21:58
Derby to attempt to sign Chris Wood from West Brom
and also Alex Nimely from Manchester City on loan.

Maybe on loan for chris wood but even that is unlikely, ready for the first team.

We would never sell chris wood to derby

We said we'd never sell Shackell to Burnley, but that happened - football's a funny game

We are not getting loans we are still
missing a left back and 1/2 strikers.
all deals will be pernament.

Chris wood can go will never be a premiership player

That's rubbish Chris woods quality now and he's only 20

Crock of crap wood is a cracking player

I agree that Wood is not good enough. He doesnt have the pace or ability to make it at the top level. He hasnt set the world alight in the lower leagues so he wont in the prem. get a couple of mil and re-invest in a quality forward.

If chris wood leaves west brom it will only be on loan and anyway its only for experience... hes only 20 in 5 years he could be good... or when odemwingie retires he is back up for long

Wood won't be in WBA first team this year. Odem,Long,Fortune,Rosenberg,Cox(soon to go) all better. Berahino also progressing at a faster pace than Wood. Would expect him to go out on loan, wouldn't be surprised if he goes permanently



06 Aug 2012 10:08:13
Doncaster Outs this week

Stock or is it Crock Burnley
Coppinger Ipswich
Bennett N.Forest, After Doni stalled on a new contract. Come on John Ryan get a grip.

Coppinger won't be coming to ITFC, management there have ruled it out this morning

Donny have not stalled on a contract for Kyle Bennett

Jr says drfc are rebuilding, then he sells our best players , some rebuilding if Bennett leaves I will be handing my season ticket back, dose'nt. He realise we still need at least 2 defenders, and a decent striker

I think you should hand your season ticket back if you think Bennett is our best player, he's is massively overrated. Its simple economics, if the gates are at best 10,000 (7k avg) and we drop a league and loose tv revenue streams then we have to pay players less, we don't have any choice, unless you'd rather rovers find themselves in the unfortunate position of the likes of Portsmouth bearing in mind we have no where near there fanbase.

All 3 players are overrated, Let them all leave and bring in players who`s wages we can afford. Bennett needs to inprove a lot, these players contributed to our religation last season. SO HOW GOOD ARE THEY?

3 Players do not make a team

Copps is always dangerous and bennett will be class in league 1 ..if we keep em we cud ave a gud chance

Bennet is not for sale!!! words of saunders unless some one offered a daft amount of cash! which won't be forest and no one has been in for coppinger! thank god! rovers legend

Watford to sign Sam Baldock

This appears to be true, he was at London Colney this morning

When? .

Heard he had been close to signing for bristol city

With DJ Campbell?



06 Aug 2012 09:43:54
blackpool are rumoured to be going to put in an offer of 4 mill for austin

Not old enough to play for Blackpool - needs to be over 30.

Oyston spending 4 million on a player. Funniest thing I've ever seen posted on here.

Hey dude stop talking about our Charlie, he be right worth more than that appen he is staying with us anyhow

Oyston would never pay 4mil for anyone. Especially Austin who isn't even worth 4mil.

Saw this in the Lancashire telegraph had a giggle then aswell

Do you know are chairman??
obviously not

Whoever's wrote he needs to b over 30 to b at Blackpool give your head a wobble n do sme research

I hope this is true

About 5 of the blackpool are over 30 so you need to "give your head a wobble n d sme research"

Yeah he needs to be over 30 like ince and Phillips or any of this summers signings or half of last years team :/

This is the same Carl Oyston who offered Plymouth 30,000 for Bradley Wright Phillips in January, and offered Robbie Fowler 100 per week to play for Pool, and yet you think he is willing to splash 4million on one player? Blackpools biggest ever signing was DJ Campbell for 1.25million and that was when they reached the Premier League

Its karl not carl {Ed003's Note - Just to clear something up,Fowler was offered a pay as you play deal of 5k a game pro rata for minutes on the pitch,the 90 per week had to be offered due to employment laws}



06 Aug 2012 09:20:29
Any news on what striker brighton are going to sign??

Ross McCormack
1.5-2million in the next few days

They have looked at the Budget and 3 names are in the hat - Paynter / Iwelumu / Heskey - need to sell to balance the books and CMS will be sold

On Saturday, after the Chelsea game I went in the club shop to purchase my Reading ticket. I was going to leave and Michelle Kuipers was at the end of the ticket queue signing the Reading tickets, he was asking questions and he said that there may be one more signing before Tuesday's game? Who knows?

Paynter/Iewlumu/Heskey are not targets.
The only targets were after according to my sources are
Ross McCormack, Sam Baldock, Santa Cruz and some strikers from abroad.

None. We are going down the Spain route. No strikers, just Vicente up front.

Bobby zamora

I reckon Bobby Zamora is coming home?

Heskey rejects Seasiders as in advanced talks with Seagulls......

Heskey rejects Seasiders as in advanced talks with Seagulls......

Billy Paynter has signed elsewhere (thank god!), Iwelumo I can't see happening, nor can I see a CMS/McCormack swap, if anything I see the Heskey one being true.
It won't happen but I'd LOVE to see Bobby Z come home.
As for budget and needing to sell to balance the books, we've only paid one transfer fee so far for Crofts thought to be in the region of 400-600k, I would say we have at least 3m left to spend, definitely don't need to sell.

Would be an awesome target man and also at championship level would get 10+ goals

Santa Cruz of Man City as Gus Poyet has a great relationship with him and Man City are willing to do a Wayne Bridge style contrace where Brighton only pay a small part of his wages

Bobby signed a 3 yr deal with qpr.Thats what i heard

Said it before, No way is Bobby coming home. Hodgson as England manager gives him his best ever chance of getting in the Engaldn squad. If Hodgson starts overlooking him then maybe in January is the earliest he could look at us, but for now Zamora won't go anywhere outside the Prem.



06 Aug 2012 09:07:27
Tottenham duo John Bostock and Grant Hall to join Bristol City on season long loans. Bostock is an attacking midfielder and Hall a centre back.

Bostock has been on loan to four clubs and three have sent him back before loan deal ended.makes you wonder why

Bostock is a very good player but the clubs he was loaned out to werent footballing sides as Di Canio has instilled at Swindon and Bostock is not used to playing Hoof ball as it doesnt suit his game. He was brilliant fir us last season when he was on loan and Di Canio wants him back but it seems to be dragging on so maybe he is going to City instead.



06 Aug 2012 08:56:07
Moussa Dembele is set to sign a 2 year extension to his current deal with a 3rd year option . Jeremy Toualan could move to Fulham n Lukaku should complete his loan move from Chelsea to link up with his (homey) Dembele . Fulham refuse to be ripped off for jordan rhodes n have turned their attention to pacey winger zaha of palace.
Dempsey will join Roma for 8.9m .

Palace aren't going to be ripped of for Zaha either, were looking for more than what Huddersfield are after for Rhodes. He's tied down for another 5 years and were in no rush to sell. We turned down 8 million from Bolton in January, and will want an improvement on that if he were to go. - Palace Fan

Would be great news if Dembele does sign contract extension at Fulham - I understand he is happy with Fulham and gets on very well with Jol. He will be highest paid player at Fulham with Ruiz. Fulahm would be wise to act quickly as Spurs will be in the hunt when Modric finally leaves for Real Madrid.

Good call about Dempsey - Liverpool do not wish to pay equivalent of 10m in player exchange deals - Jol wanted Adam and will now turn his attentions to Whittingham at Cardiff. Whittingham wants to play in the premier league and doesn't see Cardiff fitting the bill.

Rhodes is not even worth the 6m offered by Fulham - he looks like another Healy so pleased if Fulham stay clear of him - not good enough.

Lukaku is close to a loan move which is good news and expect Fulham to search for another striker, not Sagbo as he will sign for West Ham.

Chadli will sign for 6m when Dempsey move is definite.

But Zaha is proven at Championship and younger so worth a higher fee than Rhodes I believe.



06 Aug 2012 08:27:32
Southampton are lining up a bid for Celtic midfielder Beram Kayal.

A bid is possible. Getting him is far less likely. he is very highly rated by a lot of people including sir Alex Ferguson

Im a celtic fan and how much for beram kayal is solid u will never get him

Sounds promising, we've got too many midfielders so hopefully this is true with a bid around 5m.

Saints have more than enough midfielders.
We need someone to play on the right hand side and Kayal doesn't cover that.

We wont sell our best midfielder.

I reckon at this point Southampton will be selling midfielders not buying them... Unless they can play on the wing and even then...

5m? This lad oozes quality, the best in a brilliant young squad we have. He is an absolute genius and if Joe Allan is worth 15million...

Joe Allen is premiership though, Kayal is spl. Gulf in class is miserable

And Kayal has played in Europe...

A lot of players have played in Europe from all over the world. Does that instantly make them worth 15m? Celtic would be lucky to get 5m for a player that plays in one of the poorest leagues in the world. It's no wonder you Celtic fans think he's good when he's playing against Hibs and Kilmarnock.

What? or playing against Udinese or Athletico Madrid... Please don't talk rubbish about it being one of the poorest leagues in the world, if it was why is it consistently one of the EPL and Championships 'go to places' for young players... Please reasoned argument

And of course your lucky comment doesnt make sense either... Last player who left us from our academy on a fee... Aiden McGeady, fee? 9million pound with add ons... oh and guess what he is looking at a move to the EPL with sunderland



06 Aug 2012 07:39:46
Bournemouth are going to make a bid on southamptons lee barnard. Nigel adkins doesnt like him ges 28 and a another striker for next season.

Lee barnard is experienced lower league striker, with southampton in premiership doubt if he would be able to compete at highest level. Starting scoring at one in three games ratio at southend and remained at that level at southamton. Would not call him prolific goal scorer but would do a job at bournemouth with all the strike force injuries.

No chance of getting lee barnard.

I hope not, dont want him

I can't see him dropping down to League One, he is a good striker who could do a job for most Championship sides.

Bournemouth are loaded with strikers, they don't need anymore

Another rumour on this site is lee barnard is of to birmingham, that would be a surprise.

Adkins said he was free to leave so it's possible.

Adkins does like him, just wants to let him leave to clear space for 25 man squad.

Bournemouth do have eight strikers able to play in first team, one of these is development player stockley, the other seven sherringham is long term injury...six,
DeMouge, fletcher and McQuoid all out with injuries....three left as tubbs, thomas and grabban. If one of these three gets injured then we will be struggling at bournemouth. Loan or another signing could be essential before the 31st August deadline, if we want to challange for promotion next year.

Demouge, mcqouid and fletcher have just picked up knocks and may not be out for too long. So stop worrying were going to be fine up front numbers wise.

Demouge, fletcher and mcquoid may be back before the season starts, stop worrying!

DeMouge needs scan to see if he needs knee operation, that should be couple of months, likewise McQuoid ankle needs scan to determine the damage poss one month. Fletcher at 40 had deadleg and takes time to recover from knocks. I am only panicing as we might only have thomas and stockley as starting partnership, like last year we were very short of goals. Desperate for tubbs to do well as we are relying on him.

Manager groves laughed at the suggestion that lee barnard of southampton was training with bournemouth. Maybe this rumour is not going very far!

Love how he signed (on loan) an scored today



06 Aug 2012 07:32:30

Steve definitely

Mark or Kelvin Wilson?

Take kevin wilson he is the worst player in the world

Kelvin is quick as hell and lves celtic mark is goin away u will get mark



06 Aug 2012 04:44:57
Stoke are set to sign Micheal Kightly from Wolves and Alan Hutton from Aston Villa for 2m, and still look to sign Martin Olsson from Blackburn for around 4m, also stoke have joined the race to sign 19 year old senagal wonderkid Mousse Konate for around 2m

Hutton is awful but I hope the rest of the deals are completed.

Love to see olsson join but cant see that happening now



06 Aug 2012 04:04:49
Portsmouth once they are taken over, are set to complete the signings of :-

Izale McLeod
Muzzy Dumbuya
Jon Harley
Kieran Djalili
Brian Howard
Conor Clifford (Loan)
Luke Rodgers
Jack Compton

And more are on MA's radar.

Also set to renew Liam Lawrence's contract on a monthly contract.

Selling Ben-Haim for anything as well to Bolton or West Ham

Also liam walker and a central defender

Add Josh Thompson to that list

Lawrence to possibly stay? He says he's working on something today in the news. And maybe Ben haim to do the same? Either that or to go to the clubs mentioned on a free. It's starting to look promising now! And Appleton hints at good players on hold to join aswell. Pup we will never die!!!

Lucky if u get any players should have been put out of business as for loyal fans why don't you turn up empty seats in prem says it all fans are all talk

There are no clubs interested in TBH, that was confirmed today. He is still claiming his 3m and wont budge, he doesn't believe Pompey will be liquidated. If he does not change his mind Pompey are history its that simple.

What is the person talking about empty seats in the Prem on about. Doesn't he even know we haven't been in the Prem for two years and when we were it was sold out every week up to our 20,000 capacity. As an aside 250,000 people turned out when we won the cup but as I expect your from up the road you wouldn't know anything about winning things would you.

Clueless im a pompey fan and a season ticket holder i can asure the fan above we did not sell out in the prem in the last season we were up another talker. stop talking and get down and support the club



06 Aug 2012 02:01:32
Leeds United to sign Craig Mackail
Smith as he wants to play for a club who have a chance of promotion and McCormack to possibly go the other way

Brighton have a better chance to get promoted. Plus Gus said CMS isn't up for sale during last weeks Fan Forum.

Ross wants a new contract so he wont be leaving, do think we will sign another striker with a desire to run, might not be craig tho

Neutral on this, but surely Brighton have a good chance of promotion?

Trust me you don't ^^^^
You will get 2nd season syndrome and fail so badly. Just like we did this season. That means CMS will hopefully come to Leeds and partner up with McCormack and Boyd

Haha leeds have never had a chance of promotion DWS. COYH

Why would Leeds swap a proven goalscorer at this level with CMS, who has yet to prove himself at this level?



06 Aug 2012 01:40:57
Any Hearts rumours Ed? {Ed001's Note - none that I am aware of sorry.}

Tranmere in talks with Everton over signing Center back Shane Duffy On a 6 month loan deal

Rather not have him, good player but the way he celebrated his goal against us whilst at Scunthorpe was bang out of order

How do you know we are in talks

How fickle of you, your not going to sign a player because of the way he celebrated? Get a grip of yourself

Ronnie Moore has denied talks on the official website



06 Aug 2012 01:03:07
confirmed that watford have signed alex geijo! and it has been said that watford have been talking to dj campbell!

This is getting really boring. We have not spoken to DJ Campbell.

Has been said, but only by fans

DJ Campbell is having a medical. fact.

But not at watford FACT FACT

How many times. Listen........DJ has never even spoken to Watford fc.



06 Aug 2012 00:37:18
Swansea City are rumoured to be interested in the signature of James Tomkins from West Ham because Chico has not impressed so far.

Correction, the Tomkins rumour was sparked after Liverpool expressed interest in Ashley Williams. I watched every single match of the U.S tour and believe you me Chico made very good impressions. And he scored which is always a bonus.

Top of fitness tests before US tour. Fitting in well with other players. Scored in final US match. Looking forward to watching him tomorrow against Blackpool.

Chico has performed very well so far, so that's not the reason if the rumour is true.

Chico has done well. Please stop making things up. This is a rumour site not a "make up any old twaddle" site.
Ed? {Ed003's Note - I presume it's a typo error and he means Michu or maybe Swans have given him that nickname}

Ed003 - Chico is the defender that Swansea signed. Michu is the attacking midfielder.

Chico not impressed so far saw him play against blackpool and extreamly happy great replacement for caulker and more experience top level bags of energy



06 Aug 2012 00:53:59
Liam Lawrence has told a few pompey officials ( hence why leaked out to the radio ) that if he is not sold by tuesday to get a fee for the club he will re-negotiate with trevor birch on a 1 month rolling contract, there for is portsmouth need to quickly get rid of him with the money troubles it shouldnt be a problem, ben haim will have his position at the club resolved tuesday aswell, if he is not gone by then west ham will make a move for a free transfer.

all this news was brought to me by mark moodie (close friend) works for the news and had a pop in and out in the studio for express FM

I would Love Liam to stay at Pompey. League 1 could be really good for him. His performance in pre-season has been inspiring. I just hope we can get this whole situation sorted so that we can get on with competing in League 1. Play Up Pompey! and thanks for the kind messages from other supporters. Much appreciated.



05 Aug 2012 23:29:49
Keith Treacy did not miss the Cheltenham game through injury he was infact travelling to Barnsley for talks over a move. Will sign in the next couple of days!

If he leaves it will be to wednesday

Thats why he got pulled out of training a day before the game with the physios looking after him for a good hr?

Are you sure he wasn't in the pub and missed the coach ?

^^ why will it be to Wednesdays

Just because he's been on loan at Wednesday's and now your interested in buying him doesn't mean your going to get him!

No it wont

Wednesday have blown all their transfer budget on a reject that's never played above league 1

Why Wednesday?

Was linked with Barnsley about a month ago, nothing really been said since and Keith Hill hasn't dismissed it although if Hill is going to spend the type of money that would be required to get Treacy (well over 500,000) it would be on a striker given that Davies is the only striker in the squad who has proved he can score in the Championship.

Swansea keen on Martin Harnik, VfB Stuttgart,

Manager Jim Gannon is also looking to sign a back up goalkeeper and an attacking speedy winger and is hoping to add more trialists this week to his training schedule.

Understand Gannon is trying to bring Matt Paterson back to the club. A fans favourite, Paterson is currently on trial with Portsmouth with Wimbledon and Burton Albion also keeping tabs.



05 Aug 2012 23:04:10
Torquay News.
