Simeon Jackson and Jaime Peters look set to sign for Sheffield United on loan till jan.(4)(17)Well they certainly need them!Even though peters is on loan at bournemouth??Peters has just gone on loan to Bourmouth so I doubt it.


05 Oct 2011 22:04:35
Norwich striker Simeon Jackson looks set to sign for Sheffield United on loan till january.(3)(13)You have no chance i've getting Simeon Jackson on loan, why would he give up Premiership football for league 1, nothing wrong with league 1, but he will get games in the Prem with Norwich.

adam lallana to qpr in january transfer window(16)(31)Would love it but very doubtfulGet real,if he was going to leave why on earth would he be interested in joining a
silly little club like QPR.
Southampton is where his heart is,he'll be
a star for Saints in the Premiership.Silly little club, i forgot Southampton are a mighty huge club.

Anyone in their right mind would choose QPR over Southampton

This coming from a fan that supports neither, just had to comment as the last comment was an absolute jokeSame old saint fans don't you know they are the biggest club in the universeHa ha Saints fan getting a backlash, let me think who would I rather play for a team who are having a good run in the Championship but could well slip down the table at any time or a Prem team in doing ok (except for a couple of shocking results) and are looking good to be there next season, no contest, not what is deamed a 'big club' but a club on the upSouthampton are a ma-hoo-sive club, they're only in the Championship to give their collective of world beaters a bit of a breather before they go on dominate the Premier League. Apparently Lalllalalalallalla is going to be "a star for Saints in the Premiership" let's not worry about a little thing called promotion eh? Let's just assume that they're going to go up, in fact, let's all laugh at the Southampton dreamers.Whats wrong with dreaming? I'm a Saints fan and there are some out there that get carried away, I admit, I'm shocked by how well we have started, we are in good position to get promotion, it could happen, who knows? As for Lallana he signed an extension to his contract in January and it would take a serious amount of money for Southampton to part with their prized player. We are not a selling club anymore, but everybody has a price and if it was a huge amount of money was offered, much, much more than what we got for Oxo, who knows? What I do is that Adam loves playing for Southampton and no offence to QPR fans, but it would have to be a club with Champions League football to offer to tempt him away.AL has had the oppotunity to go before, and to clubs with better potential than Queens Krap Rangers - he signed a new contract at the start of 2011 and Saints would only sell at an extortionate price, ala AoxoC.So if Saints can slip up and slide down the table,with no "shocking result's",who's to say that QPR won't slip up and find themselves in a relegation positition,after all premiership stalwarts you are not,who's deluded?Adam has a lot of loyalty to Saints, he is a saints supporter, saints gave him a life changing operation when he was younger and they have been key to his development.

I can’t see him going to QPR because they are not even proven in the Premiership. They may do well but it’s a big gamble. The only team I can imagine him wanting to go to would be Man U, and that is because they rarely buy players they don’t play

Saints may not be a massive club but they by far the biggest team in the area. QPR are just a small London club, small fish in a very large pond with wealthy investors trying to take a slice of Arsenal and Chelsea’s pie

People say that saints fans are arrogant, but we are just realistic. Currently we are top of the league.I must admit i cannot see adam lallana leaving southampton any time soon but i do think they will need to buy some good players in january as i feel that they are a 2 man team in LAMBERT and LALLANA, i no my mates keep saying 'we have really good players waiting to fill in if any players get injuries' but i very much doubt that, the owners need to put their money where their mouth is in january because its just a matter of time before injuries occur and it is a long old season in the championship.Lambert and Lallana are important player for us of course, but we are hardly a 2 man team, we have scored 34 goals in all copetitions Lambert and Lallana are responsible for 15 of them, the other 19 have been scored by 10 diffrent players, fans that dont watch us week in week out cant comment, anyway has'nt every team got there star players take Messi out of barca they would miss him, Rooney out of Man U you would miss him, Ronaldo out of real you would miss him, Liam Lawrence out of Portsmouth, OK maybe not everyone, Pompey are st with or without him, do i have to continue

lcfc to sign beckham(12)(37)

Correction... LCFC are TRYING to convince Beckham to join them as a player/coach. Sven is offering him a coaching role as he thinks it might tip the balance, Beckham is leaving the Galaxy soon and wants to play in the GB Squad.

As a Leicester fan, i know this is reality as Sven has been very vocal about his attempts to lure Beckham - BUT - it'll never happen in a month of sunday's! It's just not realistic, why on Earth would Beckham land in Leicester when Spurs would cut Bale's leg off to sign him?

Real rumour (although it's hardly a rumour once it's been confirmed) but no chance of happening.


05 Oct 2011 21:08:36
Victor chandler has had his offer accepted by N.D. Press release friday when N.D returns to his london home(5)(8)Total non-starter, Doughty is staying as owner - plus Victor Chandler is a tax exile and can only spend 60 days in the UK before he is hit for tax. The sponsorship deal will tide NFFC over until 2013, so ND doesn't need to sell the club yet. Forest aren't going to be put on the market until Summer 2012.


05 Oct 2011 20:26:00
George Green has singed for Everton, for £2 million(11)(4)Whats he been singing?


05 Oct 2011 19:33:58
Ran into Mart Poom of all people at Gatwick last week and asked him about up and coming Estonian youth. He told me that young midfielder Joel indermitte of the national team is only 18 and is being closely scouted by Derby County on his recommendation and will likely be signed at the winter break.(1)(9)Of all people to bump into - imagine that - most people wouldn't even know what he looked likeTo be fair he is hard to missDont keep running into people it'll hurt.


05 Oct 2011 18:39:33
Blackpool defender Chris Basham will move away from Bloomfield Road in January to join Aston Villa for around £1 million.(6)(20)


05 Oct 2011 18:37:56
David Beckham will turn down a number of English clubs to sign a three year deal with Italian side Palermo after being in talks with the Serie A side. The England international was keen on going back to Italy and was impressed with the talks last week.(4)(25)


05 Oct 2011 16:37:14
Bristol City are negotiating with St Johnstone to bring Derek McInnes to Asthon Gate. Mcinnes wants to bring in Paul Ritchie as his Assistant.(19)(9)Rubbish, BCFC are looking at proven managers, not some jock rookie.


05 Oct 2011 15:31:50
milwall and coventry have both been turned down in there attempts to sign simeon jackson on loan from norwich(15)(6)Of course because he is in the 25 man squad named by NCFC


05 Oct 2011 15:12:02
boro are to make an audacious bid to sign free agent mamadou diara who is a free agent who would be willing to go to a championship club after leaving monoco in the summer(18)(11)Stevenage Borough should sign him I think he'd be good for them.If he really is available, then there will be PL clubs who will get in first - Swansea wanted Senna at one point pre-season - Diarra is similar, and would fit well into their system. Old-pro vacuum cleaner, QPR, would be another possible destination. He would also improve Blackburn & Wigan. Alternatively, Bolton, Sunderland, Fulham or Newcastle may fancy a punt for the rest of the season on a player who could offer decent back up. I think one of the above would come in before he went to either Doncaster or Boro.


05 Oct 2011 15:06:23
Brentford are on the verge of signing Billy Clarke on loan until Christmas. The Blackpool striker was on loan with the Brentford outfit when they won the league 2 Championship and was highly regarded during his loan period.(11)(4)


05 oct 2011 15:03:06
roy keane is the next manager at notts forest.lots of money gone on mr keane at the bookies and has been made fav.(17)(19)That would ruin their chances of promotion straight awayOkay good shout - BUT who is going to be next manager of NOTTINGHAM FOREST ?What's that saying - "A fool and his money"??I can see Roy Keane at NOTTS FOREST, they'd be good together, for a bit.Whoever forest hire will struggle to keep them up, seeing how they spent money on useless players and lost all there good players :)As an Ipswich fan I hope for your sake this is just paper talk. He tried hard but has no clue on tactics, transfers or man mangement. You'll do well to stay up with him in charge.As if Forest were not in enough trouble alreadyIf he goes there, Forest go down. Simple as. Great player, but self-absorbed and erratic as a manager, especially under pressure. Dave Jones = much better option. PS I wonder if Forest might have an outside bet on getting Martin O Neill for a temporary project, just to the end of the season? PPS How about an audacious swoop for a certain Nigel Clough?? PPPS Where is Trevor Francis these days? I like Forest, so hope they steady the ship.


05 Oct 2011 13:53:09
George Green earns trial at tottenham after turninng after turning down everton(10)(14)Already had his trial at tottenham, the lass scored a hat-trickAnd signed for everton today hardluck


05 Oct 2011 13:45:44
Gerry francis a surprise candidate for the Bristol City Job, Francis has been working for Stoke and is highly regarded within the game and will bring Gary penrice to Ashton Gate as assistant Manager. The fact both penrice and Francis are Bristol rovers Legends doesnt matter to City owner Steve Landsdown(1)(18)Not suprised he isnt bothered, neither are coming.These are the last pair of Gas tts I would ever wanna see at AG! Would set fire to my season ticket if it ever happened - which it won't.......


05 Oct 2011 13:42:23
The chap who replied to my Southend posting saying he fell asleep. All I can say is what I said was the truth.

Another thing I'd say is how the structure is set up now it would not be Ron Martin who'll conduct manager/player negotiations.

That now rests with Tara Brady.(3)(7)Ha ha you are a cure for insomniacs everywhere


05 Oct 2011 13:28:02
pne to resign st ledger till jan as he needs games and as asked if he can go on loan bk to pne FACT(1)(24)Serves him right for being greedy and leaving in the first place.


05 Oct 2011 13:27:50
Michael Owen is the latest name to be linked with a move to doncaster.(13)(45)Oh this is just keeps getting better by the minute, swap Champions League footie for the Keepmoat, are you mad.Didnt know they had benches at DoncasterSwap champions league football? .. Michael Owen would be lucky to get a game in the Carling Cup!


05 Oct 2011 13:16:16
My response to the previous posting on Southend:

I agree in the main what was said was accurate but one specific thing I disagree with.

Kevin Maher is another who wouldn't return to the Club whilst Ron Martin is still around.

Ron forced the then manager Tilson not to play Maher whick eventually forced him out of the Club.

As I say the other parts that were written is accurate.

I personally want Sturrock and Coughlan to stay here but something tells me come the end of the month they will no longer be here.

I won't speculate on contenders because I don't speculate and besides there are at the moment no vacancies.(4)(2)Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz seriously dull hang on I'm slipping into a comaWhen you wake up from your coma you will find that PS has moved back to the West Country to take Plymouth back to it's former glories. He is Mr Plymouth and we will welcome him back with open arms.

Some will say I'm a know-all but I've a relative who is a friend of one of the directors at Southend United. News being bandied about is:

The Club are fighting tooth and nail to hold onto the management team but they admittedly say they cannot be 100% sure of succeeding. Should they depart they'll look to bring in an experienced manager to work alonside a younger man. The experienced one I've not a clue but Kevin Maher is still talked about with affection at Roots Hall and he could be the younger guy they go for. Hopefully the present regime remains in tact.

It is unlikely Ryan Hall will sign a second extention at Roots Hall - Next summer he'll have a year left on his contract and it is then the Club will consider selling if an acceptable offer is made.

Anthony Grant has been unhappy with Blues for some time. Theres an outside chance he'll go in january but its more likely his deal will wind down next summer when he can depart for nothing.

Nothing concrete about Barker or Corr going back to Home Park should the management team return there but players have been lined up for Southend to sign soon. but looking to improve the squad is an everyday ongoing thing.

It;s been said Peter Gilbert is a little unsettled in this neck of the woods and he could be one that returns to Plymouth should Sturrock and coughlan go back as they are admirers of the Left back. This might the reason Gilbert is playing out of his skin at the mo. looking for takers.

Whilst Ron is involved with Blues there's no chance of Steve Tilson returning to Roots Hall.

This is honestly what I've been told but take it as you will.(1)(9)SSorSorry fell asleep after line one


05 Oct 2011 12:39:59
Are LEEDS UTD really going to let Aidy White go to Derby on Loan with a view for a pernament move ?? ythis rumour is all over the place, surely we should keep him what do you all think ?
Keep= believable let go = unbelievable
Gj(26)(19)Its the Mirror making stuff up. He's doing well in the 1st team. No way he's off.I agree, think he is doing very well lately, GjCant believe it,we are short of defenders,we would be stupid to let him go hes young talented and doing well in the first teamI think this rumour is cheap mischievous tabloid press nothing serious to read into here just lazy journalism. Aidy White has been a relevation so far this season he has pace to burn and now with Danny back at the club we have much more natural balance on the left hand side of the pitch so why would we sell?I think he is better than pugh and was our man of the match against pompeyI would be happy to see him at Derby, he looks a good leftback and kilbane goes back in jan so we could do with him.I'd like to see Aidy at Derby as we are in need of a left back in january when kilbane goes back to hull, so I would welcome the loan move.Just because derby may be interested does not mean he will go....Bloody Tabloids needing to fill spaceNo way 2 derby ha ha ha ha,,,I can understand derby being interested in him but white isnt interested in going to an inferior clubI like aidy a lot but still think he would be better on the wing he is not a natural fullback


05 Oct 2011 12:29:36

04 Oct 2011 18:37:14
To all you Blackburn and nott forest fans I'm a rangers fan just being told Walter smith has being offered forest job and Blackburn job(14)(21)How can he manage two teams at the same time?He obviously chooses 1Its NOTTINGHAM FOREST! {Ed003's Note -lol}Why does he have to manage two teams, the guy said he was offered the jobs. Decent manager and no compensation to pay so wouldn't be surprised if he has been offered both jobs.I thought Leicester had a manager and won 4-0 at the weekend, currently sitting in 8th place 4 points off auto promotion after just ten games? Maybe I'm cynical but I thought that was motoring along quite well.

As for Notss Forest if I were the chairman there I'd put a certain Alan Curbishley in but hey, they haven't got a chairman have they!


04 Oct 2011 18:21:04

Plymouth want a fresh new manager not old faces.(9)(8)


04 Oct 2011 16:55:25
Steve Tilson is to leave Lincoln City and go back home to Southend United.

Jamie Clapham to take over as interim Lincoln boss.

Also, Jamie Pitman is to be sacked as Hereford boss and replaced by Gary Peters. Pitman has been offered the manager's job at nearby Worcester City, as Carl Heeley (their manager) will be sacked after a poor run of results.

Paolo Di Canio will leave Swindon by December 31st, and the new manager there will be Richard Money - unless he accepts the vacancy at Wrexham FC, if that happens then Ronnie Moore or Mark Robins will take over at The County Ground.(2)(12)You couldn't work Martin O'Neill and Alan Curbishley into that load of nonsense could you ? Oh I'm sure you could if you tried !'steve tilson is to leave lincoln city and go back home to southend united.


jamie clapham to take over as interim lincoln boss.

think you'll find that peter jackson is taking over there soon

also, jamie pitman is to be sacked as hereford boss and replaced by gary peters. pitman has been offered the manager's job at nearby worcester city, as carl heeley (their manager) will be sacked after a poor run of results.

not sure about this - probably.

paolo di canio will leave swindon by december 31st, and the new manager there will be richard money - unless he accepts the vacancy at wrexham fc, if that happens then ronnie moore or mark robins will take over at the county ground.

1/4 - well done. rm was wanted by andrew fitton and fitton wants to buy the club back off jeremy wray. however, fitton made himself look like a prat last year so wray won't sell. di canio will be out by christmas and swindon won't go up = arbib and black pull out and swindon are up st creek.

04 Oct 2011 09:37:55
Bristol City are torn between four names to be the next manager.
-Hull City assistant Craig Shakespeare is keen on getting into management and Bristol City may give him the chance after gaining experience at 'bigger' Championship clubs at Hull, West Brom and Leicester.
-Derek McInnes could be approached at St Johnstone and is expected the compensation fee with the SPL side would easily be agreed. McInnes is also keen to move south of the border to try his luck in the English leagues.
-City are monitoring the situation of Mick McCarthy. The former Republic of Ireland boss is rumoured to be on the verge of being sacked and if Wolves lose their next game to main rivals West Brom, City may wait two weeks to see if anything materialises.
-The fourth and final name in the frame is a surpising Darren Patterson. Patterson has been coaching since 2004 and that seems to impress the City board. The former Wigan, Crystal Palace and Luton player has worked his way up through Oxford United but is now currently assistant at Rotherham. Patterson was also caretaker boss at rivals Bristol Rovers last year.(7)(23)Now this one is plain daftNow this one is plain daftWhat deluded buffoon wrote this twaddle!!!!McLaren new Manager, not announced yetDerek mcinnes has already turned down a job in the english leagues so don't talk rubbishWont be mclaren it will be the cheapest option available.Mick McCarthy going no where I'm a wolves fan and as much as I would like to see Mick leave as I think he's taken Wolves as far as he can the board and owner Steve Morgan love himMick Mcarthey lol, no chance whatsoever


04 Oct 2011 08:51:56
Get to the bookies! By the end of the week it should be confirmed that:

Dave Jones will take over at Bristol City
Paul Sturrock will take over at Plymouth
Martin Allen will take over at Portsmouth

Sturrock is shortest odds at 1/3 on!(20)(20)

04 Oct 2011 08:01:36
Barry Corr and Chris Barker will join Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan at Plymouth.

Both players are likely to sign for them in january as they are out of contract with Southend in May.

The pair will eventually turn down contract extentions at Roots Hall therefore the Club will want a little something for them as they are regarded as too good at this level to let their deals wind down meaning they would be available for free.

Both players are used to that part of the country with Corr having played for Exeter and Barker already has played for Plymouth.(11)(8)


04 Oct 2011 07:48:21
Leeds United and talks with manchester city for a possible loan move for fringe player wayne bridge, as leeds united's defence is below par, if leeds get promoted, and that's a big if, ken bates will open his pockets for a change!(6)(23)Think bridge will sign for premier club

Southend United:

Yes I have heard likewise.

Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan to Plymouth Argyle fairly soon.

Chris Barker and Barry Corr to follow them in january. Both are used to that part of the country and I'm hearing Blues want sometying for tjhem as they are out of contract in may(3)(6)That will be dave jones then


04 Oct 2011 07:01:34
Nottingham Forest have failed in an audacious attempt to lure Simon Grayson from Leeds after the club refused the managerless strugglers to speak with the Whites boss. Doughty is said to be on the hunt for a manager who will achieve highly without significant investment.

Forest will now turn to Karl Robinson.(13)(15)Complete lie as Doughty is having nothing to do with the recruiting of the new manager.Were do people get there story's from.
You'd be a good employee for jackanory.Another fool who thinks leeds have the tools grayson no chance dont want him only one man mr O'Neill come on downForest will name Mark Hughes as Manager in a press conference this morningYou tool - Grayson is a Leeds fan and always desribed this as his dream job - why would he even consider going to the Florist's5th October and no confirmation of Mark Hughes - deluded Florist fans who need to wake up.


04 Oct 2011 00:22:43
Mick McCarthy may consider walking out of wolves management if the lack of getting behind the team, Martin O'Neil and Rafael Benitez could be the favourites to take over if McCarthy walks(12)(12)The Benitez rumour is complete bull st ,MM wont be getting sacked.had Wolves of been relegated he still would have been kept as manager.COYW.What a load of bos. He has a job for life at Wolves.I hope we sack him he cant take wolves to the next levelJust what is the next level for Wolves? If the rumour is that MAckem Mick wants to leave for reasons of interference from above then those are the last 2 managers who would accept such treatment.The "next level" is the championship, so everyone will be he has a job for life.


03 Oct 2011 23:05:36
Steve Kean to be forced out of the Blackburn job.

Alan Shearer has been told by Venkys that the job is his if he wants it.(26)(8)PFFT! What do Venkeys know!I suspect Alan Shearer would steer clear of any offer from the Venky's, also he does not have a full Pro Euro licence, so who's to say he can be successful as a Manager, Blackburn are the laughing stock of the premier league right now.


03 Oct 2011 23:04:39
doncaster could be about to sign alan smith from newcastle.
would be a bad signing tho!(16)(13)It would be a bad signing for a premier league club, but not Doncaster, no disrespect inteded of course but he'd be great playing at that level again, a well experienced player and of definite Championship caliber still!Everyone has backed this stupid rumour, but no-one has revealed how Donny will afford his wages. Its impossible. If Leeds couldnt afford them, how are the understudys going to? John Ryan is an idiot, he's just stirring this up to get people to support Doncaster and not Leeds; he has no respect for the Whites and probably still gets off on the Play-Off final win. Times have changed, Mr. Ryan.
wallyMore chance of Will Smith signing than Alan SmithSmith is out injured with a hamstring problem and hasn't played competitive football for a while Pardew has made it clear he is staying due to small squad and off field influences on youngsters. Even on a free Chavcaster could not afford him. If pigs flew he'd be off to lufc once contract expires but more likely go abroad to finish up in America. Go away Doncaster and be realistic!


03 Oct 2011 23:03:57
A sad shrimper ? I'm a furious one.

Still clinging to the hope our management team stays put although I fear those wishes are fading.

A friend of mine has a relative who works at the Club and the likelyhood may be that that either Former pl;ayer Mark Stimson or former boss Steve Thompson will take the reigns till the end of the season.(15)(4)


03 Oct 2011 22:56:43
My sources at Southend have informed me Sturrock and Coughlan WILL go to Plymouth and take Barker and Corr with them as they look to set to rebuild the club.

Paul Simpson/ Peter Taylor/ Keith Millen are on the list to be the next Southend Mananger.(13)(8)

Nottingham Forest are set to make an unusual managerial appointment. They will seek permission from Hartlepool to speak to Mick Wadsworth. They have been impressed with his ability to work on a shoestring budget, and with Doughty ready to step down at the end of the season, he won't be making funds available.(13)(12)How have forest got a shoestring budget? as a Barnsley fan, i get really wound up when this is bought gunter for around 1.5 million, george boateng must be on near on 25,000 a week, derbyshire must have been close to 500,000, miller could rise upto 1.4 million, andy reid and jonothan greening will be on close to 20,000, tudgay and blackstock must have cost between 750,000-1 million, majewski and lynch also cost.....shoestring budget? look at barnsley mateDerbyshire was on a free mateKeith Millen been at Forest todayMick Wadsworth would not be an unusual appointment - Homer Simpson would be an unusual appointment !!, I like reading the posts for Florist fans they make me chuckle

paul sturrock and graham coughlan to be installed in their respective roles at plymouth in the very near future.

Who Southend have lined up I've no idea. Have not heard anything on that front.(14)(5)Mark Stimson is rumoured to be interested, despite only just taking over at Kettering.

Kettering have no money, might not have a stadium soon (if they cannot renegotiate terms on Rockingham Road) and Stimson has publicly slated his players for being unfit.Sturrock will move by the end of October. Stimson will be in place by the beginning of November.

New doncaster manager Dean Saunders as asked steve brue about the possability of signing goalkeeper Westward on loan(16)(1)False rumour. The keepers name is Westwood !Westwood is needed as back up, and he left the Championship to get established in the Prem. Doncaster would be like an admission of failure for him.


03 Oct 2011 20:48:57
Blackpool are very close to agreeing terms with Lomana Lua Lua as he has been training with the club for the last 10 days and Ian Holloway likes his attitude.(18)(8)Training in two locations that takes some doing

Blackburn boss Steve Kean is keen on naming former England manager Steve McClaren as his new First Team Coach.(5)(17)This is Humour and Not a Rumour.


03 Oct 2011 18:57:50
Steve McClaren is set to find a new club, just a day after leaving Nottingham Forest. Rivals Notts County is set to approach the former England boss after they learned that Martin Allen could join one Championship team by the end of the week. Also, Portsmouth boss Steve Cotterill will be sacked by the board before the Barnsley game and expected to appoint Lawrie Sanchez as their new manager until the end of the year, from Barnet.(4)(19)


03 Oct 2011 18:54:51
Martin O'Neill is being linked with Celtic but not to be in managerial role. Neil Lennon said today that something needed to be changed and the former Hoops boss is in talks with the Glasgow club to be the new reserve team manager and coach within the first team and reserves. O'Neill is keen to get back into football and sees an opportunity with Lennon as a good chance to show he still has it.(6)(21)Would love to c martin back but no chanceO'neill is waitin for a premiership job or top championship side - why would he go to a tinpot league & as a reserve coach at that - unbelievable

Southend Supporter with Southend news.

Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan will soon be heading to Plymouth.

And In line for the job at Roots Hall when they depart will be Steve Cotterill.

Cotterill's future at troubled Portsmouth will be resolved soon.(8)(15)

martin o,niell to either celtic or forest?(7)(27)


03 Oct 2011 17:39:20
Southend fan here in peace ( not here to upset the shrimper die-hards).

Unfortunately I'm hearing that Paul Sturrock and Graham Coughlan are certain to be on their way to Plymouth in the next 2 weeks.

Apparently they are head and shoulders above any of the other contenders.

Also told that Steve Cotterill will be a target for Southend once his future at troubled Portsmouth has been sorted.

I remember Cotterill was a contender for the post at Roots Hall when Steve Tilson was eventually appointed.(4)(10)


03 Oct 2011 17:01:25
Nigel Adkins seen in Bristol hotel!(15)(32)To get maynard , no way will he leave saints you numptyTwo hopes, Bob Hope and no hopeYou heard it hear first!Saints went bust once they can again and Adkins will realise that a decent league 1 team cannot maintain a championship season!So what? isnt he allowed to be in a hotel in Bristol?Adkins leaving Saints for Brizzle, is about as likely as me winning the jackpot on the lottery three weeks running and I'm no Saints fan.Worst rumour I have ever seen on here!!Bcfc fan- No chance of this one-Atkins is doing a great jobHe is probably watching Maynard!Saints went bust once they can again and Adkins will realise that a decent league 1 team cannot maintain a championship season!
I am no Saints fan but why cant they mantain there start to the season? from what i have seen they Are the real deal. I mean you dont score 25 goals in 10 games if you are an average side do you. As for the rumour why would a manager leave a team top of there leauge for a team clearly going to struggle to survive in the Championship this season, its like Alex Fergerson leaving Man U for Swansea, (no disrespect Swansea fans) not saying Saints are a big club like Man U, its just very unlikely to happen lets be relistic.

Mark Hughes and David Dein to Bristol City? David Dein has been invited on to the board of directors at Ashton Gate. Mark Hughes has also been offered a job as Manager of Bristol City. Bristol City owner Steve Lansdown has said mistakes have been made but is willing to put things rite by spending more money to please the fans(6)(22)Ha ha ha ha No chance, SL won't spend any more he's more focused on the new stadium and as for Hughes - get real!!! Dein would be an ace appointment but he's going to want real money and we ain't got 50p


03 Oct 2011 13:59:36
Norwich city in talks with Man u and
Spurs in an attempt to make the loans
of De-leat and Naughton to become
perminant in January(8)(9)Naughton on his way to Brighton so you won't do it, stubble-jumpers.Yeah cos brighton is such a fabulous club lolDon't want De Laet we will pay Man U to keep him, Naughton is class Spurs want him for the futureNo chance Naughton would leave us in the prem for Brighton in the Championship. He is on a season long loan with no recall so no chance hes going anywhere near Brighton this season and he 100% would not have agreed a deal to sign for anyone in the summer at this early stage.

Terrible effort, go back to class!


03 Oct 2011 13:39:18
Colchester wont sign a striker any time soon because john ward is being way too picky.(3)(6)

Cotterill is about to be dumped by the new pompey Russian consortium, this will cheer up the Blue few until they find out they are lining up McLaren to come in. Frying pan - fire anyone?(12)(5)Pompey manager Steve Cotterill is now favourite with Skybet at 5/2 to be the next Championship manager to lose his job

02 Oct 2011 22:28:55
Roy Evans ex-Liverpool boss to be unveiled as Nottingam Forest caretaker Manager on Tuesday morning, on an initial 2 month contract(6)(22)Haha etc!

Be careful what you wish for Florist fans, McClaren may have proved to be twice as bad as useless, but who else is going to want to take over there? Tin pot club going nowhere but backwards.Just hope your owners turn out to be like the grubby ones at Birmingham and you wont go up anyway you couldnt even beat us!Aww, are those grapes sour sweetheart?Tin pot club, just like Derby and Leicester, but at least we have been forward, to be moving backwards. Most fans in the country have a soft spot for Forest and they might have soft spots for Derby and Leicester, but they really need to have achieved something to be noticed and to date Derby and Leicester have achieved very little.What ever could you be talking about, surely not those 30yr old trophies... again? (don't tell me, your crystal balls tell you that we'll never ever win them?)

Think i'd rather have our future than yours tbh.Yeah, Derby have achieved nothing have they. Remind me when the last time Forest were in the Premiership? I know we messed it up when we were there, but Hey, better than being stuck in League 1, as you will be, from next May onwards.


02 Oct 2011 22:26:44
Real Madrid are plotting a £50m bid for Brazilian strike sensation Neymar in January. Liverpool are planning a £25m move for Gonzalo Higuain. Paris Saint Germain, Inter Milan,Malaga and Corinthians are all interested in Carlos Tevez.

02 Oct 2011 19:53:53
Plymouth news. Sorry to say Southend fans but The Greens are aiming to bring Coughlan back. He was the sole target but if it means having Sturrock back too for Coughlan to follow suit then thats what I'm hearing James Brent will do.(3)(15)Even if they have no money, Plymouth need to get a board with a sense of decency and bring back Peter Reid.


02 Oct 2011 19:52:10
disscusions have been taking place all day between the board/keith millen and david announcment is now due tomorrow with david james taking over as caretaker manager. the board now want to take there time in making an permanent appointment to make sure the right man is chosen for the job and in david james the board feel they have a safe pair of hands in charge in the short term.(10)(15)Oh look, Millen is being replaced tomorrow - isn't that what y'all said yesterday, and the day before that, and the day before that etc?Don't be rediculous , we had a great defence in front of Dean Gerken, look what happened to it when David James plays..he can't manage himself let alone a club!!


02 Oct 2011 19:48:23
I understand Graham Coughlan would insist on having an elder statesman to help him run the team with Carl Fletcher.

It's also been mentioned that he'd only go back there if Paul Sturrock, his manager at Southend, was part of the package.

As a result a wee birdie maybe telling me things are currently in the process of being ironed out at Roots Hall. Paving the way for their return to Home Park.

Blues would insist on as much compensation as possible. Sturrock will cost Plymouth the most as his contact runs till the end of next season.

Whereas Coughlan's deal runs to the end of the season.(4)(9)


02 Oct 2011 19:22:25
Pretty much guaranteed McClaren will be gone by the end of they day.. just waiting for confirmation(24)(4)Never sure why they got rid of Billy DaviesHere is confirmation he has gone

Bristol City have contacted Spurs about Joe Jordan becoming manager again at Ashton Gate. Jordan left City following months of disagreement between him and then Chairman Scott Davidson.(17)(17)I can't really see big Joe coming back for a third stint and leaving a nice little number at Spurs. Mind you, if 'Arry did get the England job, can't really see Jordan being there with him...


02 oct 2011 14:20:15
bristol city news; jo jordan will be appointed manger tomorrow, confirmed by close friend who is on the board,(5)(14)YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWN - nobody cares about your small club, it won't happen, it never happens, you lot are just desperate.Small club HAHA you're joking right.Bull sht, why would Joe want more hassle and less money and go back to a club who did not appreciate him before enough to keep him?

Leeds are set to re-sign Eric Lichaj on loan from Aston Villa, with a view to a permanent deal in January. Danny Pugh's permanent deal has also been wrapped up, after a fee was agreed with Stoke for the utility-man.
wally(14)(11)Lichaj has a bright future at Villa.
I doubt Villa will sell him cheaply.Gd 1 hes injured for bout 4 monthsI am in the US and follow Lichaj. No WAY! He is too badly injured now for anyone to take a transfer interest. And his potential is too great for AV to want to part with him yet.You should work for my local council, you are clearly good at recycling old rumours.
The fact that he has a bad injury did not even put you off.

Rumours around Nottingham this morning that Steve McClaren will become the new manager of Blackburn Rovers next week as the Lancashire club hierarchy finally give in to fan pressure and sack Steve Keane. McClaren's guru Bill Beswick left Forest this week to open discussion with Venky's, Blackburn's owners. McClaren believes that his position at Forest is becoming untenable and sees the opportunity offered by Rovers to be too good to turn down. With fan protests expected this afternoon at Forest against chairman and club owner Nigel Doughty and the board, many believe that crisis club Forest can only resurrect their season if they part company with the former England manager now and the compensation package offered by Blackburn will enable them to do that. It's a plausible rumour, I'm not saying its true, but you have to wonder don't you?(10)(15)Great rumour this and what's more - i think you could be right!Bloody hope it's true2million pay off for mcclaren i dont see him getting paid offWell McClaren has gone, so Blackburn fan's have got all his negativity to look forward to. Thank god he has gone.
