Hammer Fans Not Happy With The News Scott Parker Is Back In The Championship

Parker Leaves Tottenham For First Team Football

In every team is a star, Manchester United have Wayne Rooney, Arsenal have Robbin Van Persie, Chelsea have John Terry, Liverpool have Steven Gerrard, Tottenham had Scott Parker but the 31 year old has shocked all of the Championship by moving to the Saints on a four year deal. It is reported the deal has seen 11 million head to the North London side, and young English manager Mattuie Beckett has said he has pulled off a top signing here. Scott is one of the best in his role, we was looking for a player to lead this team and this is it. He is a England star who has the chance of becoming one of the best, yes he is 31 and that seems old but he has it in him to beat players ten years younger then him. I have not seen a player with more of a work rate then Scott and we are happy with the price we have had too pay to sign him. Parker has also taken time out too wright on his twitter blog, I am sorry too all the fans who may be shock by this news, I am ever ageing and needs first team football. To be at a team with a great background is all too known for me, I can not wait to play West Ham this season and get too see some old names, I am sorry to all but this was the best move for me.


This Is What The Saints Have Payed For!

Manchester City begin a new reign of dominance


The bigwigs behind Manchester City have decided it is time Manchester City asserted their financial dominance over the Premier League. They have appointed Will Trafford as the new man in charge and have immediately shown their intentions handing him a large transfer kitty, they have also advised him to get rid of all the 'dead wood' at the Ethiad stadium.

Will Trafford had this to say:

I am delighted to have been given this opportunity and hope to repay the trust that i have been shown. I am looking to make one or two marquee signings and then put my faith in the talented youth of this generation. Attack is the best form of defence and this is where we will focus our spending. Cutting the opponents out in the midfield is vital, as is a lightning counter attack. A new era has begun.

Re: EC 10000 - Match Reports/Transfers Thread




Brentford are delighted to announce the signing of former England Under-21 international Jack Cork.

The club's first addition of the summer signals the ambition to compete in this division, with Brentford beating a number of clubs from both the Premier League and the Championship to the midfielder's signature.

22 year-old Cork joins for an undisclosed fee from the Championship giants.

Jack is a midfielder by trade, but is also versatile enough to play in defence which he showed at the recent England Under-21s fixture at St. Mary's where he featured at right back as the Three Lions kept a clean sheet against their Norwegian counterparts.

Cork has been a Chelsea player since the age of 9 where he has captained both the Under-18s and reserves sides at Stamford Bridge. He has represented England at every youth level from Under-16 to Under-21, and has on occasion also been captain.

His father is former Wimbledon and Sheffield United striker Alan Cork, who played professionally from the late seventies to the early nineties predominantly in English football.

Having played for numerous clubs in the Championship on a loan basis, Jack has now decided that St. Mary's is the best place to call home for his blossoming career for the next four years, during which time he aims to return to the Premier League.

Jack Cork said of the move:

"I'm excited really. It all started to happen this morning, I came down and met the Chairman and the Manager today and I'm really happy to get it sorted. This is a big part of my life now in moving away from Chelsea and to feel part of a club like I do here is really nice.

"It was a massive decision to make. I had another year left at Chelsea, but I've been wanting to get away for a while and have been waiting for the right move to present itself. The chance to come to Brentford came along, and having known the manager and having been here before and knowing some of the guys, it just felt like it was the right move for me.

"There were other teams in for me but this always felt like the right option because this Club is really going places and heading in the right direction, so I'm delighted to be here and can't wait for the season to start."

Manchester City boss Will Trafford is outraged at the recent words of Owen Hargreaves on his move to Southampton.

He said this:

Owen is a terrible player, he couldn't even keep up with the kids at playtime. For him to suggest he would have been on the bench is scandalous. I wouldn't even let him play for Dover Athletic let alone Manchester City. Hopefully we meet Southampton in a cup or friendly so we can show him just how real men play football!

Reading sign Future Brazilian Number 1!

Today the new Reading manager,Harry Baskara, had announced the signing of future star Cabral Rafael.The keeper agreed to join on the fee said to be worth around 4 million pounds as well as that previous number 1 Adam Federici going the other way.

Crowds had swarmed around when the Keeper arrived for his medical with loads of people before security was called after the crowd of reporters had delayed the medical it self.


As soon as the medical was over the Manager was keen to announce his new signing.

Rafael was happy to share his joy of joining the Divison 2 side.

I am pleased to get this chance and play English football. This is a real challenger for me as I have never done something like this. I will miss Santos very much but I know the chance of playing for such a great league was too much to deny. The fans looked really pleased about me joining and I hope I can repay them in the future!

The Manager also had a few words to say.

Rafael is certainly a great player and it is great to see him as my first signing. I know he is up for a good challenge and I hope not to disappoint him.

He will certainly be key for our promotion chances this season.

Leeds United's top signings

German, Dutch and Spanish invasion

Leeds United were once up there in the top flight of English football sitting comfortably at the top of the table, their risky appointment of a rookie manager may be the thing that gets them back to premier league football.

The new gaffer has aimed to achieve this by bringing in many foreign players with links to mainly German, Dutch and Spanish players.


The Leeds gaffer has announced the new signing of Spurs' star Kyle Walker, and plans reveal that Walker will be the only English player left in the squad once transfers have been completed.

Leeds have signed many big names so far:


Ricky Van Wolfswinkel will be playing an imperative role for Leeds United this season, he will be the only striker up front and will look to play the target man role.


Erik Pieters was signed from PSV to support offensive play on the flanks on the left side while also carrying out defensive roles. The new Leeds manager has emphasised the importance of the full-back role in his tactics and have therefore signed two top full-backs with Kyle Walker on the other flank


Julian Draxler will only improve as time passes. The German youth international will lead the flanks with Ola John on the other side. He will also look to play the ball inwards to the attacking mid, who has not signed by Leeds United yet, although, talks are in with Dortmund star Kagawa.


Stefan De Vrij will play as a centre-half for Leeds ahead of Oliver Baumann. A solid defender and an absolute rock at the centre. One to look out for and a catalyst to the future of Leeds United.

Re: EC 10000 - Match Reports/Transfers Thread


New manager Tim Klein said in his first interview that he would totally revamp the Gunners, and he has fulfilled his promise. Arsenal have bought 8 new players, and 13 other players have departed the club, not including loan deals. The most surprising move was possibly the player-for-player swap that saw Robin Van Persie depart to Real Madrid in exchange for Gonzalo Higuain.



Alexandre Pato was involved in a deal that sent Abou Diaby and Andrey Arshavin to Milan. Pato will assume the role of the second striker playing alongside superstar Gonzalo Higuain.


Toni Kroos was bought for 20 million pounds and Chu Young Park. By far the biggest signing for Arsenal this year, Kroos is expected to mature into the leader of this youthful Arsenal squad. Arsenal's manager stated before the season that the main goal was to replace faces like Nasri and Fabregas with another young playmaker.


Higuain was purchased from Real Madrid and is meant to assume the role of the target man and playmaker for Arsenal. He figures to help teach the younger Alex Pato all that he can in order to make a devastating strike partnership.


Hummels was purchased from Borussia Dortmund for Per Mertesacker and 13 million pounds. The main goal in the offseason was to totally rebuild what Klein called, "Aging and weak." The only two defenders kept were Bacary Sagna and Thomas Vermaelen. Hummels is the new key to the defense, and should be an anchor in the back.



Simon Kjaer (top) and Daniel Schwaab (bottom) are the two other young defenders that Arsenal have signed. They figure to be the two main backups for the defense and will get time in both league and cup games this year. In order to get these two, Arsenal gave up Johan Djourou, Ignasi Miquel, Sebastien Squillaci, and Laurent Koscielny.


Alan Dzagoev was acquired in exchange for Marouane Chamakh and Lukasz Fabianski. Dzagoev's purchase should bolster Arsenal's midfield and give them an extra boost off the bench.


Zuculini was purchased from Hoffenheim for Tomas Rosicky and Rhys Murphy. Zuculini is yet another backup who has a bright future and was purchased solely to replace the aging Rosicky in midfield.

Reading Manager Talks About Transfers

Today we met up with Reading manager Harry Baskara as he talks about his 3 new signings and his future transfer plans.

Marc Janko


I was always thinking of buying Marc.He's scored 18 goals this season which is a great achievement, he's a striker we could certainly use. He's also quite tall which we can use to our advantage. It's great to see him here.

Paulo Machado


Very versatile Midfielder I knew he was right for us. He can play anywhere in the Midfield and I think that is important. We need players who can play well in many positions and he can do that.

Maurizio Domizzi


We need an experience Center Back to help lead the team. He will offer crunching tackles and reckless battles. If it pays off he'll be one of the best Center Backs in Division 2!

We then went on to ask him about future plans transfer wise.

I've still got money to spend and I will certainly use it. I want to prove to the fans that we can push for a good finish at the end of the season. I won't revel who I will buy yet but I certainly look forward to see a new faces around here.

Reading have a friendly tonight against Liverpool and it's reported that all 3 players will be playing and we will give you the news as soon as the game is over.

This is Reading TV, reporting live from some random place?

S.DOUMBIA 22 (pen)


Today it was Harry Baskara's debut as manager as he looked to earn a draw against Liverpool.Reading kept most of the Possession. They also made a total of 13 shots compared to Liverpool's 6.

The game started with a cross which was headed by Jimmy Kebe into the net.

Louis Suarez then was booked after a foul in the 11th Minute.

Just 11 minutes later a penalty was given to Liverpool which Doumbia striked nicely into the net. It wasn't long until new signing Marc Janko headed a powerful shot past the keeper. Half time it was looking good with a 2-1 lead. It only took 3 mins after the break for Jamie Carragher to keep the hopes up for the Liverpool fans. Powefully efforts from both teams the teams end up with a draw.

This is what the Reading Manager said:

I'm happy with this result we worked hard and gave the fans something out of it. Liverpool are indeed a good side. The players were really looking forward to playing at such an amazing stadium and you could see it from the performance. It may have not been a win but we will take it from here and hope to improve.

Leeds win the race for Brazilian wonderkid Ganso


Leeds have snapped up Brazlian starlet Ganso despite interest from big names such as City, Arsenal and Aston Villa. Ganso will lead Leeds' attack with support from new signings Rasmus Elm and Jose Campana behind him. The Leeds gaffer has expressed that Ganso will take up an imperative role in his tactics as the playmaker trying to set up Ricky Van Wolfswinkel.

Ganso has expalined his shocking decision to join the npopower championship as a 'fear of lack of game time' and feels that a championship side such as Leeds is 'ideal' for the young playmaker. He has also expressed a desire to stay with Leeds in the long run.

Ganso's signing is not to be eclipsed by another star signing for Leeds:


Rasmus Elm was also snapped up despite interest from Crystal Palace. The young Sweede will play alongside Campana and behind the three attacking midfielders of Ganso, Draxler and Ola John.

Rasmus Elm was also rumoured to move to Old Trafford, Goodison Park or White Hart Lane in the summer transfer window but no moves were made. Elm believes the english pyramid is the 'top level of football'.
