To the Leeds fans spouting bull, Ken Bates is the type of man that likes to line his own pockets with gold. Your 'profits' have gone into Bates' back pocket and he will take every penny possible from your club.

Nice how you're told you will sign players at a time when season ticket sales need beefing up to, again, line the pockets of this man.

You sold one of the most promising goalkeepers in the Championship, your claims are that it was for profit, for who? Ken Bates or his 'beloved' Leeds? And this replacement that was lined up, has he signed yet or was it not Paul Rachubka afterall because I hear no strong links or movement in the transfer market when it concerns Leeds.

I'm a Chelsea fan and know the type of man Ken Bates is... Protest, get the greedy old man out of your club and have somebody build it in the way you want it building.

Ohh... One final thing, your corporate facilities have been upgraded recently. Says it all(10)(4)

Coventry - Further details of the Hoffman takeover bid continue to emerge. Hoffman is back by a Chinese consortium who want to acquire Coventry City, as well as securing 50% of the company which rents the Ricoh Stadium.

However, the bid is based on SISU, the current owners, placing the club into administration first. The Hoffman consortium want SISU to accept that this is the only way that SISU can recover some of their initial investment. It will also allow Hoffman's team to devote most of their resources towards stadium plans, rather than use it to pay SISU.

SISU have rejected the bid but remain receptive to another approach.

In the meantime, SISU plan to sell Jutkiewicz, Turner, Clingan and Cranie
Again you're wrong Hoffman don't even want to be chairman of Coventry, he's simply just trying to find investors that's all Clingan has just been made captain, yet we will sell him? are you mad?

Transfer News;

ARSENAL have made the decision not to sell Fabregas for less than £40m this Summer. The club are looking for a replacement for Gael Clichy, with Jose Enrique being favoured.

CARDIFF CITY look ready to sell Peter Whittingham to Nottingham Forest, after the club slapped a £2m price tag on him. Portsmouth had been rumoured to be interested in Whitts, but cannot afford to buy him at the present stage, considering their predicament.

Blackburn Rovers will not be selling Martin Olsson, despite numerous reports that AC Milan had contacted with a £14m offer.

Newcastle United have accepted an offer in the region of £1.6m from a Championship club for Wayne Routledge.

Newcastle may also sell James Perch, who they bought from Nottingham Forest just 12 months ago, Brighton and Bristol City are rumoured to be interested.

Several clubs have cooled-off in their pursuit of Alex Chamberlain. The reasons may not all be the same, but Liverpool boss, Kenny Dalgish said that he wanted to see the kid play at a higher level before making a rash bid.

Sticking with Liverpool and Aston Villa have slapped a £19m price tag on Stewart Downing, prompting Liverpool to consider their options after their second bid (£15m) was rejected by the Midlands club.

Leeds United boss Simon Grayson said the club need to lose players before they bring any new recruits into Elland Road. It is also understood that the West Yorkshire outfit have cancelled talks with Newcastle United over Alan Smith.

Bristol City striker, Nicky Maynard has said that he expects to be playing his football elsewhere come the start of the season. Having signed David Nugent, Leicester City will probably not sign him and Southampton are put off by the asking price, but Nottingham Forest are still weighing up an offer for the striker, having lost Robert Earnshaw to Cardiff City this morning.

Manchester United will step up their attempts to bring Bastian Schwiensteiger to Old Trafford. The German internationals wages may prove to be the biggest obstacle in this transfer.

Should Carlos Tevez leave Eastlands, Man City are weighing up a bid for his Argentine team mate Sergio Aguero.

Spurs will speak to reassure Luka Modric by stepping up their bid for Giuseppe Rossi in order to challenge for the Premier League title and offer the Croatian Champions League football.

And finally, Marlon Harewood has agreed terms with a club from League One (Can't remember which) and will undergo a medical later this week.(13)(15)

'Wigan have this weekend have had three bids for three of their players. Charles N'Zogbia has been given permision to speak to old club Newcastle United, James McCarthy has been told Blackburn must up their offer of £10 million and Hugo Rodallega is subject of a bid from Porto.'

None of these are true... Charles N'Zogbia has said he wants to go to a club that is winning trophies even if he has to leave England + only one bid has been received for N'Zogbia and that is from Aston Villa and the only enquiry is from Liverpool, James MCCarthy to Blackburn that is the worst lie of the lot McCarthy is in talks with Wigsn over signing a new deal and Liverpool and Chelsea have shown intrest so why would McCarthy make a sidewards if not downwards step to Blackburn then the Porto bid for Rodallega has not happened either because no clubs have made contact with Wigan for Rodallega except Wolves which is defiantly a downwards step.

N'Zogbia will probably leave us this summer but it will not be for Newcastle or Sunderland, McCarthy and Rodallega won't leave as both are in talks to sign new contracts with the club(10)(8)

Arsenal fans we finally have some good news Gervinho is in London for a medical ahead of a £12m move while Arsenal are also close to agreeing an £8m deal for Christopher Samba as Wenger does his utmost to persuade Samir Nasri to sign a new deal which will make him Arsenal's highest earner.Cesc Fabregas on the other hand is on his way to Barcelona for a fee believed to be around £35m which I think is cheap in todays market for him, I would have valued Cesc at around £40-45m and after losing Gael Clichy Wenger is also targeting Bordueax left back Tremoulinas. In other transfer news Villa are looking to sign Shay Given and Alan Hutton.Malaga are the only club willing to offer Carlos Tevez a route out of Spain so if he truly is moving just for family maybe he will end up at Malaga{oh and also the £200,000 a week}. Liverpool will turn their attention to £20m Spanish youngster Juan Mata if Villa fail to budge over their £19m asking price for Stewart Downing, Liverpool will make a final bid of £16m for Downing and then they will move on Henry and co. acknowledge they overpaid for Carroll and do not want to be bullied into paying a few extra million for player like City so apparently they will make a stand.Stoke are closing in on £18m duo Scott Dann and Cameron Jerome{£18m really?}.Luka Modric will be told he has to hand in a transfer request if he wishes to leave also Chelsea will have to up their bid from £22m to around £35m.(15)(8)

As well as those deals, Dexter Blackstock has had talks over a move back to St Marys and is considering rejoining for a fee of around £600,000.

Former Saints keeper Maik Taylor is rejoining on a one-year deal following his release from Birmingham.

Birmingham midfielder Nathan Redmond will also sign on a three year deal for around £400,000.

Cesena striker Franco Chiavarini will also sign on loan until January with a permanent move for around £850,000 likely to happen if the loan is a success.

Bartosz Białkowski, Dan Seabourne, Jason Puncheon, Ryan Dickson and Harlee Dean are all expected to leave Saints before the start of the season.(7)(16)

Bristol City - The growing uncertainty about Nicky Maynard escalates. Maynard agent has told the club that he wants to leave.

Bristol want to hold out for £5 million, which is infuriating Maynard and his agent, both of whom believe the price is too high.

Nevertheless, Bristol know that they cannot afford to keep a disgruntled player. 2 or 3 clubs are waiting to test City's resolve, which will weaken over the summer.

Bristol's manager, Millen, has been told he must sell before he can buy.(12)(5)

Notts County are to make an offer for Port Vale striker Marc Richards, the player signed an new 2 year contract in 2010 however the clubs failure to gain promotion last season may influence his decision should the club accept.

The Magpies have also made a surprising offer for South African side, Orlando Pirates goalscorer Isaac Chansa although a number of Championship sides are also interested.

Finally former Leeds United Tr sor Kandol is also a target having been release by Spanish outfit Albacete(5)(9)

As a Bristol City fan I am dissapointed to say that Maynard will be gone by this time next week, most likely to Leicester but wouldnt surprise me if it was to Southampton. You dont even have to work for the club to realise this as KM's interviews are becoming far more desperate and Sexstone hasnt said much for a while. To my knowledge they are mulling over a large offer from Leicester. Oh well, hope he liles his poppadoms(21)(12)
