so it looks like Man City will try to buy the world, real will try and get kaka, ribery and ronaldo (how much would that shopping spree cost?!) and chelsea may get a few milan youngsters.

What does that leave for the rest of us?

As a spurs fan I think we should sell Darren Bent (sunderland maybe), Gilberto, Chimbonda, Alan Hutton (back to Rangers), Zokora (Portsmouth or Ajax), David Bentley (west ham or villa). We could then bring dos santos back in from Ipswich and have a more balanced, cost effective side.

What will happen with you team?

Well I see Owen Hargreaves might have to quit top level football so maybe you could sign him  3http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/

Well I'm a Newcastle fan so now that we've gone down all our best players are bound to leave......oh hang on a minute we don't have any 'best' players. But im predicting at least 4 managerial transfers next season so most of the transfer kitty will be blown on paying each of them a hefty fee when they leave.  2

my team (reading) will go down, as i predicted here: http://road.cc/content/forum/3664-football-misery

so far hahnemman's the only one that's gone of the four i reckoned would go, and he's been pushed. but so have duberry, murty and lita and i can't see doyle and hunt staying. doesn't leave much of the first team. plus we don't have a manager. pft.

Oli, do you think shearer is the right man for the job? As an outsider it seems that newcastle fans love their 'saviours' but none really seem to be able to stick with it...look at keegan, twice.

Owen will go (doubt any newcastle fans would mind). I would quite like to sign obafemi martins if bent goes to sunderland. Quite like the idea of steven taylor too but I doubt he will be happy competing with woodgate, ledley and dawson.

Not sure about Shearer really we've been through so many 'right men for the job', it seems that a 'right team for the job' might be more of a priority. The Geordies are pretty well practised at idolising players/managers but in my opinion it just adds to the whole soap opera effect of the club...all we need now is some kind of happy ending scenario!

I agree about Owen, I can't see him staying but then again I can't see anyone else wanting to buy him. Sadly for him his peak seemed to be 1998/99 and he's been trying to live up to that ever since...

the only thing that can save the Geordies in Ant & Dec. I think they'll be out the premiership for a good few years, and am praying I'm right!

Dave - having lived all my life in Reading, it's strange to me that anyone outside the area supports them.

For most of my life they were a poor performing 4th division club with a crap ground near the town centre that caused chaos on match days.

Hanneman is the only one I know anything about as I meet him quite a bit in my mates bike shop, he's very into MTB's.

Well, we're losing Lucas Neil so we probably need to find a new full back, I'm a bit worried that we might lose Green too, that might be a blow. The club are obviously concerned about that too cos they've signed the young Hungarian we've had on loan since February to a four year deal.

You can keep Bentley thanks Jon - we've already got Dyer and Faubert, you can have Boa Morte though.

We probably need a forward and a full back, but since the new regime don't really buy British - and also have a penchant for getting fringe squad players in on loan (a good idea I reckon) I haven't got the foggiest who we'll end up with on current form it'll be some kid from Seria B in Italy or an old giffer from La Liga or Seria A… or maybe someone who finds the Russian winters too cold.

Heard the rumours that ronaldo has a pre-contract agreement with Real Madrid that means if they do not sign him by the end of June (this year!) he gets £26million in compensation!?! This has been confirmed by real, the world has gone mad.

This guy is a cheat, not a very good cheat either.

No worries I'm on it Jimmy - anyone else you're interested in apart from the Terras?

Fringe,
Yes,
Yes if you've got the money or you're lucky,
Yes - Sunday mornings on parks and recs all over this fair land grown men gather to kick lumps out of each other and sometimes the ball + abuse each other and the ref, it's addictive so I'm told.

anybody want to sign a free, ageing, injury prone, short striker...10 years past his best? £90,000 per week or nearest offer...
in fairness who would want to wear that newcastle kit, anyone else seen the new yellow number? Grim. I know its steven taylor in the pic, not owen, but you get the idea.

Newcastle United away kit design meeting:

Mike Ashley: "Any ideas on the away new kit then?"
Gok-wan: "Yes maybe yellow and yellower stripes....I thought a comedy kit would go well with the style of football and the way the club is run"
Mike Ashley: "Any other suggestions?"
**Silence from all other board members due to being bound and gagged**
Mike Ashley: "Right, yellow it is then....next on the agenda: 'Which unknown South American winger to buy?'"

p.s I'm a Newcastle fan.

I am unsure whether to be happy or sad that Liverpool have got Glen Johnson, but paid about 8million too much for him.

We have 3 major signings already, Lee Croft, Ben Pringle and the mighty Jake Buxton.

Good enough to take us up to the Prem? Not confident.

I can now report that Terras have enough players to put a team out.

With the amount of clubs struggling, the FA should hang their heads in shame and the topsy turvy nature of funding.
