Hahaha I read that Liverpool will be signing players like David Villa for £10 million. I would really like to know where that extremely low figure came from lol. We will be signing players like Javier Mascherano and if Xabi leaves then he will be replaced by someone like Xavi Hernandez or Zaptar.

Xavi is being slowly eased out of the FC Barcelona first team due to the improvement of Yaya Toure. Theo Walcott will be given another season to impress at Arsenal before Arsene Wenger decides to get rid. Rafa (if still incharge) would be very interested.

Liverpool's problems uptop will be sorted by the exit of Voronin and Possibly Kuyt. They will be replaced by Nasri and Kenwyne Jones if Peter Crouch is offloaded if not then Lukas Podolski is another target. This will allow Ryan Babel a more central role.

If Wayne Bridge does not make his way to Anfield in the Summer Rafa will have look to call up on youngster Insua who has played well in recent months. Watch out for a number of Liverpool youngsters to break onto the scene within the next 18 month including Kristian Nemeth and Pachecho who FC Barcelona where extremly upset at losing.

  Rumour to shock the football world, none other than the "special one" has been spotted in dublin ahead of the match with Brazil. seen having diner with top irish F. a officials and a senoir executive of irish recruitment firm "issrecruitment" who along with a very famous irish drinks firm are reported to be putting together a sponcership package to bring a top class manager to the national team fact or fiction? wait and see

  Ipswich looking to sign David Nugent on loan in the next few days, also looking to bolster up the centre of defense with the loan signing of Paul Mcshane from Sunderland, Both signings to be attempted to be made permanent in the Summer.

Watch out for Sumolvski, Next Steven Gerrard

  Seems we have not been told the complete truth on the recent transfer of Plymouth Argyle's David Norris to Ipswich. The word is that he was actually sold for nearer £3 million and not the reported £2.2 million and that Bolton received nothing in sell–on fees – they were supposed to have got approx £750K. All this comes from 'the horses mouth' at Home Park and makes Argyle's comparatively meagre spending in the transfer window even more baffling.

  As for Arsenal spending Mills and Mills over the next year, get real this just is not going to happen. we have tended to spend less than we get in in recent years. The only rumours I can see any validity in are potentially Ashley Young and Micah Richards as both players are Arsenal fans, and both A. Villa and Man. C. have sounded out some of our players, so a cash + player deal might happen. Gourcuff has been a player that Wenger wants, along with Nasri and Menez. ut as soon as real interest is shown, the price doubles, and other teams get involved.

We will not spend big in the Summer without getting money in. and why should we? Great young players, great play and real chances on 3 fronts.

The only bad piece of news I have heard is that Cesc will go in the Summer. I hope he does not but Wenger will get it right, as he has time and time again.

  Benitez will sign in the Summer, Mexes, Robbie Keane and gareth Bale as Ramos does not rate him and has just bought Brazilian interbnational Gilberto if this fails he will go for Marcelo

  Scott Carson will not be signed by AVfc for the ridiculous amounts that keep on appearing on this site. Why do Liverpool followers believe he is worth stupid money? Current price £1.5 million max. AVfc will buy Brad Guzan for about £2 million. as if you think about the owner being from across the pond it makes sense. American sport is all about marketing and Mr Lerner is in the pool with the big fish on this point. He wants interest in AVfc in the States so that high profile people take note of AVfc. Stand by for more Stateside players to arrive when the real transfers start in the Summer.

  Arsenal to bid for/buy:

Micah Richards – he is in the process of/has just signed a new contract with Manchester City. We will need to spend big to land him so if we do get him, do not expect too many other players to come along in the Summer. He is the type of player Wenger likes and is said to want to move to London to be closer to friends in London and likes Arsenal's style of play.

Wenger is also looking at Benzema, Dos Santos and a young Brazilian kid called Lulinha. A lot of interest expressed from other top teams in Europe may drive up prices and force him away from bidding.

Again, do not expect many signings this Summer – perhaps 1 or 2 but Wenger has never gone out and bought more than four players, at least two of which will be small signings as always.

The Truth – over and out

Micah Richards go to Arsenal with Hoyte and £15 million
