  Never posted previously, and probably won't do again for risk of being identified, Liverpool FC fans, expect first signing within 10 days Currently the medical is all that is holding up the transfer of Davd Silva.
The Chief

I'm a mad LFC fan and i'm sorry but David Silva will sign for Real Madrid his reps were at Real last night disscussing a deal! I'm actually fearing that Liverpool will miss out on the majority of the players Benitez has identified as our money situation is not good at this moment!!
  Arsenal Out
Van Persie–Barca
Adebayor–AC Milan or Chelski
Senderos–Sunderland or AC Milan

Arsenal In
Higuan/Huntellar–Real Madrid
Eden Hazard
loric Cana
Thomas Vermaelan–Ajax
  Actual rumours that I have heard: Alonso will be sold to Madrid and Javi Martinez will be his replacement. Rafa does not have much in the way of funds and will be forced to sell Alonso.

  Everton transfers:
Moyes looking to bring in some qualiy to help Eveton push for 4th spot.

Michael Owen – Newcastle (Free)
Joao Moutinho – Sporting Lisbon (£12,000,000)
David Bentley – Tottenham (£8,000,000)
Glen Johnson – Porstmouth (£7,000,000)
Joe Ledley – Cardiff (£3,000,000)
Neven Subotic – Borussia Dortmund (£2,000,000)

Total of £32,000,000. A lot of money but Kenwright
has promised Moyes more money than the shambles last year and will push hard to secure the funds this year to keep Moyes loyal and qualify for the Champions League next year meaning he won't have too dig deep next year.

Victor Anichebe – Hull City – (Loan)
Segundo Castillo – Loan Expires

Moyes will NOT let Lescott go to Man City, he does not believe in being able to simply buy a cabable replacement and wants to keep things stable at the club.

From a close source, trust me, these are the targets Moyes wants to bring in before pre–season, which go through will depend on money and the other clubs.
  Burnley are looking to sign at least 8 players this summer with the following Coyle's main targets:

Jermaine Beckford (£3m Leeds United)
Geovanni (£5m Hull)
Rhys Williams (£1.5m Middlesborough)
Russell Anderson (Free Sunderland)
Andrew Surman (£2m Southampton)
Jason Scotland (£1m Swansea)
Sean St Ledger (£2m PNE if Irvine can be convinced)
David Nugent (£2.6m Portsmouth)
Ross Mcormack (£2.8m Cardiff City)
Danny Walbeck or Fraizer Campbell (loan Man United)
Simon Cox (£2m Swindon Town)
Rickie Lambert (£1m Bristol Rovers)
Matty Kilgallon (£2m Sheffield United)
Andrew Driver (£1m Hearts)
Olifangana (£4m Stoke)
Joe Ledley (£5m Cardiff)

These are Coyle's main plans
Not all will happen but most hopefully will happen
Up The Clarets!
  Steve Bruce has immediately got on with looking for new signings, trying to make his first two; Darren Bent from Spurs and Nikola Zigic from Valencia

As a local lad from Devon I can bring you the latest football rumours from the southwest. .

A high speculative story surrounds the future of Plymouth Argyle striker Paul Gallagher. Many people have linked him with a return to a small prem club but the truth of the matter is he will be joining rivals bristol city for a fee of around 1.5 mil

Argyle will look to Leeds' hotshot Beckford as a replacement. Yes, it is true many clubs are after him but negotiations are currently taking place and a deal is set to be finalised in july. The figure has not been set but with a takeover happening at the Green Army money is now no issue as chairman Stapleton has recently admitted the club have spent wrong.

Other strong news ––
Ronaldo will join Kaka at Real Madrid FACT!

Liverpool will battle for David Silva with Madrid also but should make the deal.

Liverpool will sign Lavezzi and most probably G. Johnson with Arbeloa, Lucas and Babel heading for the exit door.

Pato will not join Chelski, however Ribery may do depending on his choices.

Zlatan has showed interest and admitted he would like to sign for Barca, who probably don't need him but would love him.


D.CLOUGH. .dclough

  Coventry City will announce the signing of Andrew Driver on Monday. A deal has been agreed between the two clubs and the player will travel down to the ricoh on Monday to discuss personal terms and complete his medical.

Im so sure of this that i promise never to post on this website again if im wrong

  Newcastle ins

R Taylor
  Everton to sign Stephane Mbia for 4 million
  Providing roberto martinez leaves swansea which is likely they will bring in barnsley manager simon davey.
  Astonvilla In

Wheater – BORO
Bentley – SPURS


Carew – MAN CITY
Bouma – RETIRE
  Man City will sign David Van Zanten for £9m this summer
  Have just been past Norwich's Colney training ground where Grant Holt has been having a medical. Rumours coming out of there is that there were a few problems but hopefully there will be some more news Monday.
  Nottingham Forest are interested in taking out of contract players Amaury Bischoff from Arsenal, goalkeeper Jason Brown from Blackburn and Collins John from Fulham this summer.
  Ive posted very similar to this before!
Glen Johnson– to the pompey muppet who said why would he go to liverpool!! Try guaranteed champions league footie and a shot at the premiership! Dunno if he'll come, though LFC will only have to offer 10mill to match chavski as we are owed 7m for crouchy!
Owen and Michael Johnson are to injury prone for Rafa, and injuries are what cost us the league this year. I don't think he'll bother with them.
Marek Hamsik– Highly rated and has been watched by most of europes top scouts. Its possible but he may not want to leave yet.
Javi young player from Bilbao and apparently the deal is virtually done!
Tevez– Like the rest of you, i don't know but in L,pool rumours are he will sign before July!
Silva– No bidding war has started and apparently (rumours) he just awaits a medical!
Who knows with the reds though. Daily Star has us in crisis again as our debt is to high to secure cash against players in the transfer market! Just going to have to wait an see!!
  There are several rumours about united that are far off the mark, like Veloso and Huntelaar coming to old trafford. These Rumours stop now. We will be signing Benzema, Cahill, and non other than Cesc Fabregas. All these other names are just a smokescreen. Think about it guys, why would Fabregas join Barca, when they have the worlds greatest midfield. Leaving will be Nani, Gibson, Scholes (coaching roll) and Gary neville. Fergie still thinks Giggsy has another 6–12 months left in him.

You have all been pre warned, Man utd are re–building for the next 3 years. God help all the other premiership also rans.

Mark the Manc

Squad 09–10

GK – Steele (signed new contract) – Simon Davey is looking to bring in a keeper on a one year contract no name realeased yet.

DEF – Hassell Moore Foster Kozluck Potter El Haimour – Simon Davey is looking to bring in possibly one or 2 CB's with a wing back also in his mind. No names mentioned so far.

MID – JCR Colace ANDERSON DE SILVA Devaney Butterfield – Simon Davey is curently looking at the possibility of Darren Ambrose as he has been released by Charlton. Also do not rule out a return to Barnsley Fc for Kyel Reid as davey is said to be interested in bringing him back too Oakwell.

FWD – Bogdanovic Hume Macken Adam Coulson REUBEN NOBLE LAZARUS. – Expect REUBEN and adam to be in the squad much more next season. Simon Davey is looking at the possibility of Signing Kevin Phillips. Simon Davey is showing intrest in Sheffield Uniteds Billy Sharp.

  Although Parry on his way out of Anfield, Liverpool still slow on transfers and missing out on targets. With Barry at City and Daniel Pranjic off to Bayern Munich, 2 targets already gone, and David Silva looking likely to move to Real Madrid. Further still, financial problems mean its likely Xabi Alonso will be sold, Liverpool want £30m but are likely to get around £25m. Javi Martinez will replace Xabi for £11m, Tuncay will sign for around £6m, and new right and left backs will be brought as Doseena and Arbeloa homesick and have asked for moves.
  ARSENAL news:
here's what i WISH for: Yaya Toure, Richards, Hangeland, Dzerko, Kameni. (this would b perfect, a free good keeper, on form tall strikers, beastly central midfielder and two tall powerful defenders, one of whom is a fan).
outs: Gallas, Fabianski, Adebayor, Randall, Senderos, Silvestre, Bendtner, Gilbert.

Here's what will REALLY happen: Matuidi, Sakho, Dzerko, Hazard, Huntelaar.
outs: Gallas, Adebayor, Randall, Senderos, Gilbert, van Persie(most unfortunately, but if he doesn't sign the new contract, there's noway arsene will let him just walk away for free next summer.)

Ronaldo will not leave Utd, Messi/Henry/Eto'o will not leave Barca, Kaka will not go to Chelsea, rather to Madrid or surprisingly Utd, Ribery will go to Barca not Chelsea, Young will not leave Villa this season, Fabregas will not leave Arsenal, Tevez will go to Man City(unfortunately), Pato will go to Chelsea, Bojan will go out on loan to a premier league club, Gareth Barry will be booed by Villa fans and will enjoy champions league football at home on setanta, Liverpool will not have loads of money to spend so they can forget Aguero/Silva/Villa, Newcastle are screwed, man utd will win league agen, follwed by arsenal, liverpool, chelsea, everton 5th, spurs 6th, man city 7th, villa 8th, Ancelotti to be fired before the end of the season. now lets see how much of this happens.
Nostradamus of football. .

Rumours circulating Glasgow today are that ROY AITKEN will be the new Celtic boss. It is felt he has served his time as a number 2 at Birmingham and Aston Villa with Alex McLeish and David O'Leary, and indeed was in the running for Aston Villa job prior to Martin O'Neils appointment (indeed in 3 pre–season games as interim manager he won them all). At Leeds he earned the respect of many seasoned pros and youth players for his knowledge of the game and his man–management. And don't forget as manager of Aberdeen he won the Scottish Cup in 1995. As a "true" Celtic legend with outsdtanding credentials and european contacts from his Scotland days. The rumour is also that if Aitken gets the job then Peter Grant would be his number 2 and Neil Lennon would remain as a 1st team coach. Not a bad trio eh?
  Stoke news

Thomas Sorensen will leave the Britannia for Bayern Munich once a replacement is found. Joe Hart top of the want list.

Dave Kitson wanted by Birmingham –Stoke keen to sell after his disastrous season

Stoke keen to make a fresh attempt to land Zigic from Valencia but not at their asking price of 10 million.

Gary O'Neil on Stoke's wish list but competition from other clubs

Eidur Gudjonson also been approached by Stoke and two other Prem clubs.

  Fergie is not stupid enough to pay that amount of money for Tevez. He is a forward who managed 5 league goals in a season.

So he runs around alot and some of the idiots at OT join in with the sign him up song. They get on Berbatovs back when he has the most assists in the Premiership. They also got on Sherringhams back when he first signed and carricks. And I can remember them all cheeing Alan Smith because he used to run around like a headless chicken and kiss the badge.

We need quality and not tiers.

  West Ham's Jack Collison has attracted the interest from a number of Italian clubs with Roma being the most prominant. Luciano Spalletti has had him watched for the "Giallorossi" on a number of occasions including the match against Wigan in which he injured his Knee cap. Alessio Cerci could be offered as part of the deal although Gianfranco Zola may move for him anyway as he only has 1 year left at Roma.
Claudio Ranieri was keen on a move for him in the summer, but has since been sacked as Juventus' Boss.
  Exciting news for all Villa fans!!! MON will secure the signing of Eden Hazard within the next 5 days. Hazard is touted as the brightest prospect in Europe and has been likened to the great Zidane.

Expect Vila to pay in the region of £6 million to secure his services in a 5 year deal.

  Met Lee McCulloch outside the well shop. Apparently going for medical at Fir Park and to sign for a fee of around £250,000.
  Heard today that the Celtic Management Team will be Brian McClair and Roy Aitken
  Man utd are going 2 spend lots of money this year

Give it a break people! I'm here to destroy these silly little rumours.

Why are wishful thinking fellow Gooners expecting mass changes?

The only transfers will involve one or two players who will go stright into reserves and youth teams, for example Jamie Edge. Another two signings for the first team, one centre back, one defensive midfielder (listing names is pointless, we can never guess what the great professor is thinking), and then one maybe two leaving, Senderos (£6m) and Silvestre (£1m max!).

Keeping the core of the team together – like last season – is Wenger's priority. However, if anyone else leaves, they will be replaced, but the only additional players likely to leave (and I'm simply going by common sense here) are Eboué through lack of first team football (he's already said that he's unhappy with the lack of first team appearances and is unsure of his future) and POSSIBLY Adebayor, and that's only because nobody trusts the man!

Eboué probably wouldn't be replaced, as Hoyte will step forward as Gibbs has done this year (although hopefully Gibbs willbe reverting back to his midfield position for the Carling Cup games when Traoré comes back next season). Adebayor on the other hand, could make us a nice tasty sum of £25m.

Senderos (£6m), Silvestre (£1m), Adebayor (£25m maybe), Edouré (£7m maybe). . plus the reported £13m that Wenger has to spend. . That's £52m for Wenger to buy a replacement (if needed) for Adebayor, a centre back and a defensive midfielder. . That's more than enough.

We will get the right players. We don't need too many adjustments, we have a strong foundation in place. . SO SHOW SOME FAITH!


  I work at Cameron House and I know for a fact that Tony Adams was not brought there for discussions about the Celtic job. He may be in line for another job in scottish football though. .

In other Celtic news – stop talking about Wim and Henrik coming back, it's not happening FACT!

We will not be spending huge cash and we will offload more than we buy. Expect one big name and a few lesser renowed players to be brought in.
  Can we stop this s about berbatov going back to spurs he simply wouldn't be welcome and arry knows this. jermain defoe is goin nowhere he was on the bench at the end of last season after being out injured for 8 weeks. NOW FOR SOME FACTS . david bentley will sign for aston villa and tom huddleston will sign for everton ( which is a shame ) the only player at the moment that arry is weighing up a bid for is ryan babel i will be back with more as and when im told.
  Newcastle United switching their attention to the little irish magician in Wesley Hoolahan of Norwich City. Shearer sees him as the ideal replacement for the departing damien duff
  Rumour strongly going around glasgow is , dermot desmond is ready to announce major double management team that will most definetly plaease the fans . Could be mark mghee and larsson. or it could be roy keane and lennon. or maybe even tony mowbray and slaven bilic together . Who knows? THIS MANAGEMENT TEAM WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY MONDAY. LETS HOPE DESMOND AND LAWWELL HAVE GOT IT CORRECT THIS TIME, AND LETS HOPE HE LETS THE MANAGER SPEND BIG ! !
  In response to my fellow contributor I appreciate your feedback on Kevin Davies going to LFC, yes you are correct he is in his early 30's but so what, you need to remember he is a captain and received the players player of the year award for his club, he also commits a hell of a lot of fouls and picks up a few bookings so for me he breaks up play and doesn't allow the opposition to cheaply control possession. He's English and has strong connections with Sammy Lee, he delivers between 10 and 12 goals a season which for a team like Bolton in the premiership is excellent which can be improved with LFC. He's strong and for me peaking. Backward thinking has got nothing to do with age, look at when we bought Gary Macallister was that backward thinking?. The fact is its pretty obvious how RAFA thinks, once hes made his mind up that's it theres no going back and if Owen thinks that liverpool are second best to the Galacticos then hes not got the correct attitude for this team, RAFA does not have a backward thinking mentality. Its all or nothing with RAFA (i.e. Paco). Owen made up his mind and that was it, he's gone, RAFA won't dwell on it again. no backward thinking. Davies would be fantastic cover for Gerard, hes a hard worker and gives his all and a leader as well. You talk about his age, well this would act as a spur for him to win medals in a place where he is likely to do so. He wants to show his kids his medals when they get older and hes got one on the way. If he was given the chance Liverpool would get a brilliant 2 seasons out of him, as i say he would lead for the carling cup and be instrumental in the FA cup, he would be part of a rotating premiership and European squad, and if injuries occur that big strong yorkshireman would fit into a strong side so easily with his premiership experience. Im not Owen bashing here, Owen made his own mind up, I agree he shouldnt of been on the benches at Real because he was scoring great goals but that team (and its the first time i agree with SAF on anything here) used him and made a profit out of the lads expense and dreams, but that was his decision which he must of found instantly regrettable as he saw Stevie G lift big ears again. So backward thinking. .I just can't see RAFA doing it, he left the ship when RAFA needed him and since then RAFA has moved on quite nicely. RAFA will mix it up next season with a mixture of youth and experience, and remember Sammy Lee has strong ties with Kevin, RAFA knows he has to have an element of English players in the team, hes as good as any foreigner on the market i know of. So there is my response my friend, I respect yours. Now I've said that watch David Moyes step in and bid for him.

  In response to the guy from the gorbals citing owen coyle leaping from a taxi and champagne doing the rounds. aye ok. celtic,the gorbals and champagne in the same sentence? stay off the meths pal.real rumour. my mate is friends with artur boruc and tells me that finally he s off ,but surprisingly his destination is everton!shame really cause he s always good for a few points a season. 52 and counting.
  A couple of things that need sorting;
as told to all poo(l) fans and now to all citeh fans aaron lennon is going nowhere he simply does not want to move nor do spurs want to sell. so if the player does not want to go and the club don't want to sell the question is how will you buy him??????
to the guy who said defoe will be off again your very very wrong up until his injury and after defoe worked very well with pava on the pitch if any–one needs to worry then it really should be robbie???? and to the other guy the AUTOGRAPH COLLECTOR RE OWEN?
said he was house hunting down london? truth is mate i know for a fact he already has a house in hertfordshire! one move on the cards ashley young to his boyhood club! spurs, in a part exchange deal
