West Ham will announce the loan signing of Felipe Caicedo in the next day or two. He travelled down to Chadwell Heath today (wednesday) for a medical and to meet Avram and the deal will be completed by the Premier League very soon.
The Hammers will now NOT sign anymore attacking players. They have enough play going forward with Barrera and Piquionne (spelling?) both being positives in the abysmal performance against Aston Villa.
Grant will look to more defensive signings with a chance of Anton Ferdinand making a return to Upton Park after being deemed Surplus to requirements at Sunderland.
Also, West Ham are still considering a move for Luke Young but this will only happen when Villa install a permenant manager.(0)(0)

NEWCASTLE UNITED NEWS !

Newcastle united are still intrsted in the signing of Hatem Ben Arfa, but will not pay any money for the player, they can only afford him on loan and then view to a pernament deal. but they face really stiff competition from AC Milian and also Werder Bremen. but with Werder Bremen just getting money from the sale of Mesut Ozil to Real Madrid, they have money to spend but don't think they will spend about 8 million on Hatem Ben Arfa with the club being in alot of debt.

Newcastle are also intrested in the loan singing off Vladimir Weiss with the player not most likely to make it into Manchester City 25 man squad list. Newcastle were reported in the player in June but nothing happened then but they are now intrested in the player. But again Newcastle will face stiff competition for another player this time the team is Stuttgart, there manger Fredi Bobic has already hinted strongly that the German side have won the race to sign the Slovakia World Cup player.

Reports in the Spanish media say that Guinea international Alhassane Keita was due on Tyneside for a trial, but never heard much on this rumours.

Newcastle are also intrsted in the signing of the 20–year–old Feyenoord midfielder Leroy Far aka The Bouncer

Newcastle are mulling over a cut–price move for Everton striker Victor Anichebe.

Newcastle are also about to complete the signing of Edigio Arevalo a Uruguay Midfielder

Newcastle are ready to thwart Fulham's bid for Algerian defender Rafik Halliche, although the 23–year–old is due at Craven Cottage for a medical ahead of a £1.3m move from Benfica.

 18 Aug 2010 22:36:00
I have been a Liverpool fc fan all my life so i have been delighted with the recent talks of a takeover however it is possible that this may not happen if so then here is who we should sign.
LFC signings (without takeover)
Brian Ruiz (straight swap fpr ryan babel)
Wayne Bridge (4.5–8 million)

LFC signings (with takeover)
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (17–21 million)
Maicon (10–15 million)

It is more likely that it would be Ruiz and Bridge who would sign for us as it doesn't look like a takeover will be done before the end of the transfer period. Although I'd still be pretty happy with those signings as I don't know if we even have that kind of money.

I have a Liverpool Rumour. . .

They are to make 2 more signings before the close of the window, the first being Toivenan of PSV (forgive spelling), and the second being steven warnock of aston villa.

thoughts ed? {editor's note – I would love to see Warnock back, but I can't see Villa selling him, even if we do make a bid. Toivonen(sp?) does look very likely as Roy has watched him and had him watched a few times already this season.}(18)(17)

Liverpool will add 3 more players to the squad come September 1st. They are likely to be Maynor Figueroa (6mil) Loic Remy (12mil) and Nedum Onouha (3mil)

Departures will only include Plessis (1.5mil) El Zhar (500k) Cavalieri (1.5mil) and Insua (5mil)

do u not pay attention to anything at all?!
Nedum Onouha is on loan at Sunderland and has been for about 2 weeks, Figueroa is going nowhere as liverpool want konchesky and will get him and Loic Remy is the only shred of believable truth in there because Babel is on his way out and Remy could replace him.

this is for rumours, not make believe {editor's note – Liverpool are not signing Konchesky or Remy. Neither are wanted by Hodgson.}(3)(33)

Forest News

Patience is the key. The AP are still playing the waiting game with Pratley and Whittingham. Both are in the last year of the contracts, both are still refusing to sign new deals, both are keen to talk to Forest about a possible move. Cardiff and Swansea are holding out for as much as they can get, but neither can really afford to lose them for nothing next year. Hence Forest not rushing in, and paying more than think they have to.
Despite what both clubs have said publically, what hasn't been said is more revealing. Why has neither club said that they are definately not leaving? Why has neither player come out and said they will definately not be leaving?
Neither deal is certain by any means, but Forest are still very much in the running for both.


Mate its common knowledge that we are`nt signing anyone, ND is`nt going to sign Whittingham and Pratley, he isn't spending this season, at best we will only see loanees coming in, if we are lucky!
Better get used to it, ND is doing what he did when Harty was the manager in 2003, Tyson, McGugan look as if they will both be pushed out the door, either sold or loaned out, but we won't get Whittingham and Pratley that`s for sure!
Going to be a poor season for us!
–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

Well bearing in mind that ND said himself in an interview only last week that Forest are actively looking to add to the squad, and it is in fact well documented that Forest have made a number of official bids for numerous players, (Whittingham, Pratley, Johnson, Shorey, Huseklepp) the only real question your post raises is, are you actually a Ram or a Fox?? :)
Personally I'm all for a bit of banter. Better luck next time fella.(16)(7)

In my opinion he should never be allowed to own a football club anyway, hardly seems like a fit and proper person to me!}(11)(15)

Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Jamaican teenage starlet Odaine Dmar.(40)(6)

 

 18 Aug 2010 20:40:11
The reason Karl Oyston has stepped down from his position at Blackpool will become clear in the next few days.

KO would not budge on his stance on player wages and fees, namely –

Holloway wants to sign James Vaughan on a permenant deal. This will be passed now by the board and will go ahead.

The Pitman fee was another argued point, the new offer that was accepted was as a result of KO leaving.

Other deals could now go ahead, DJ Campbell may arrive, Sousa wants to keep him, but with the investments coming in to the crisp bowl, they feel they can get better in.

Another shock move which is boiling away under the surface is for Kenny Miller, enquiries have been made and a deal could be reached.

The final deal in the offing which Holloway is keeping low key is some tentative enquiries about is Julian Speroni from Palace, although this is unlikely.

Expect 2/ 3 of these to come off before the end of August, with 2/ 3 young foreign players coming to the club(16)(12)

Ipswich Town are having a very close look at Brett Pitman with Blackpools offer not excepted i think you could see keane make a quick swoop to bring him in for about the £1 million mark with add–ons, Also one of Ross McCormack Or Jason Scotland i don't think he will bring in both as we still have Priskin who for some reason keane has shown alot of faith in and he won't be sold and Connor Wickham still to come back. Now that Walters, Stead and Counago all pritty much gone there will be one or two others but havent heard anything else.

Sorry mate, blackpool have had a bid accepted, McCormack is going to Hull and Jason Scotland aint going anywhere soon – Wigan have a striker shortage.(12)(10)

From what I've been told Spurs dealings involve Luis Fabiano coming in from Sevilla for around £14m or Luis Suarez from Ajax for considerably more and also that Ashley Young is wanted from Aston Villa in a cash plus player deal deal, this has been discussed but Villa are now refusing to talk until their new manager is decided. Spurs want rid of Keane, Bentley and Jenas from the current squad and are also prepared to offer Wilson Palacios to Barcelona for a small profit on what they paid Wigan as they are tracking a number of potential replacements. I've also been told that Scott Parker isn't interested in signing a new contract at West Ham but the owners will try to sell him to anyone but Tottenham if they can. The source was one that would be considered as quite reliable but it'd be nice if anyone else knows anything about this, Ed?

Hi Fellow fans i'm back.

Just a few general thoughts.

1. I go along with the idea that Real had the Oezil deal pretty much wrapped up weeks ago and just had to agree the fee. Shame but not meant to be. I doubt we'll sign any know i think it'll be Scholes rotated, Anderson when he's back fit and hopefully Cleverley.

2. I think Ferguson is saving his money for next summer when he needs to buy a top class keeper and hopefully Rodwell. Neville doesn't need replacing and i think Giggs probably is not that high a priority as others can fill in there and Giggs seems more central anyway these days. Rodwell i feel is an essential purchase though as, no offence toffees he can step up even further, and with the right guidance he could become the new Robbo. I have no idea on which keeper, i'd imagine who impresses the most this season but most likely Akinfeev or De Gea.

3. Why are some United fans slating Gibson and Park? They are valuable squad players and content to play as and when and don't kick up a fuss. Unlike what will happen at the neighbours this season when all those expensive mercenaries don't play. Players like Park, Gibson and O'Shea are vital cover. Furthermore i seem to remember 5 years ago lots of United fans slating a Britsh academy product saying he was useless, couldn't pass and retain posession and demanding he was sold. Instead SAF stuck by him and year on year we saw the improvement and now he is the 2nd name on the team sheet and a future nited captain, his name? Fletcher. .

Now i'm not saying Gibson is going to develop as well but give the lad a chance for gods sake, he's looked an alright player when he's played and given the chance he will progress. What do you think Ed?

4. Why are people tipping Wolves and Bolton to go down? Ok i could see Wolves getting sucked in if they don't learn how to score but Bolton will be well safe. My bottom 5 in no order last week was Wigan, West Ham, Newcastle, West Brom & Blackpool and i still think that will be the bottom 5. I think West Brom are certainties for bottom as they are not good enough, i think the other 4 will battle it out, West Ham are not good enough, Wigan are poor, Newcastle and Blackpool may survive because of the enthusiasm they have. The Geordies home support should help them get enough points to just scrape in. Blackpool could either be a Stoke and surive or a Burnley and have a mid season collapse yet as we saw with HUll that aint always fatal. Inshort Baggies, Hammers and Wigan to go.

Sorry for such a long post guys, and as always comments appreciated.

P.S. to the spelling/ grammer police apologies for any mistakes.

Robert the Red.(10)(15)

Miguel Veloso will not be signing for real madrid if you checked you would know he has just signed for Italian side Genoa aswell as portuguse keeper Eduardo of sporting Braga

also on Genoa anybody know why they have just signed Kevin prince Boateng then sent him straight on loan to Ac Milan

Back to Portugal Sporting lisbons Marat Ismailov is set to sign for Everton for 5m euros (4m)

Again people can stop linking Joao moutinho with the likes of Manchester utd and chelsea since he signed for their rivals F.C Porto over two month ago.

Mamadaou Niang has signed for Fenerbache which will see Toulouse's French International Foward Andre pierre Gignac his direct replacment at Marseille

Liverpool has rejected a 9m bid from Wolfsburg for ryan Babel

Hatem ben Arfas future will be sorted by next weekend as he is set to sign a one year loan deal with Ac Milan with could see Klaas Jan Huntelaar sign on loan for Marseille as they were blowed out the market for a move for Sevillas luis Fabianio(5)(11)

Despite what both clubs have said publically, what hasn't been said is more revealing. Why has neither club said that they are definately not leaving? Why has neither player come out and said they will definately not be leaving?
Neither deal is certain by any means, but Forest are still very much in the running for both.


Mate its common knowledge that we are`nt signing anyone, ND is`nt going to sign Whittingham and Pratley, he isn't spending this season, at best we will only see loanees coming in, if we are lucky!
Better get used to it, ND is doing what he did when Harty was the manager in 2003, Tyson, McGugan look as if they will both be pushed out the door, either sold or loaned out, but we won't get Whittingham and Pratley that`s for sure!
Going to be a poor season for us!(7)(8)

Arsenal will officially sign:

diakite(somehow missed the ajax–kiev game)
gago/ diarra(when madrid look to clear for numbers and signing of khedira and also lassana–mainly on D day)
expect keeness on man city and rmadrid by wenger no wonder he isn't active in the market!

I assume you mean Mobido Diakite, but he's playing for neither Ajax or Dynamo Kiev. Get your facts right mate, he's playing for Lazio, but the three others makes sense since Arsenal need a keeper and a CDM to compete with Song or just have him as back up.
"
He means pape diakhate.

Then why did he write diakite? Never heard Arsenal being linked with pape diakhate, but I have heard Mobido Diakite rumours for years now, so it would probably be him, not diakhate.

Mate can you shut up arsenal have never been linked with diakite it has always been Diakhate. So stop trying to be clever.

I agree with you Ed that he would be a great buy.(7)(4)

Ipswich Town are having a very close look at Brett Pitman with Blackpools offer not excepted i think you could see keane make a quick swoop to bring him in for about the £1 million mark with add–ons, Also one of Ross McCormack Or Jason Scotland i don't think he will bring in both as we still have Priskin who for some reason keane has shown alot of faith in and he won't be sold and Connor Wickham still to come back. Now that Walters, Stead and Counago all pritty much gone there will be one or two others but havent heard anything else.

United may look at Ben Afra on a loan deal. News just in! Also, United to make a last ditch attemped to sign either Sanchez, Wesley Sneijder or Karim Benzema! United also want to get ridof Carrick, Anderson and maybe Berba!

Early'b – Stop with all the bullsh!t, Carrick, Berbatov and especially Anderson are all staying put, they are great players, United will not go for any of those players you have suggested, Benzema is staying put, the fact that he scored for them a few days ago and Mourinho saying that he is the future of Real Madrid may have something to do with it, Sneijder is well out of our price range plus he has told the world that he wants to stay at Inter and that he does not want to join United. It does not get more concrete than that.

With Schmeichel being loand straight back for the 11/ 12 season as well.

Posted Earlier!

Charles nzogbia wants to leave wigan and sunderland and birmingham are eager to sign him. Sunderland will be willing to pay up to 8mill. I also understrand that birmingham won't pay more than 6mill.

Birmingham bid 8 million a month or 2 ago! Wigan want 10–12 mill!

Birmingham have bought players since then and no longer have as much money to spend, but are still hopeful of signing him as he has handed in a transfer request so might be let go for less. Sunderland however have got more money from the sales of Cana and jones. Either way nzogbia will be joining either sunderland or birm ingham early next week.(28)(7)

Honduran Left back signed up for Celtic and McFadden may be on the way with Samaras as a make weight in the deal. I've also heard that Celtic are looking at Sandaza but only to use as a squad player. Free from Dundee United on 1 year deal. Celtic Stll hopefull of signing up a "big" player and are still interested in Robbie Keane after he was left out of the starting line up last night. He also had a heated conversation with Joe Jordan when he found out he was benched(22)(48)

Neymar will decide to join Chelsea on Friday since his father was threatened by Santos fans, and Chelsea are offering what Santos want to pay monthly as his weekly wage. His agent and father are both pushing for the move since they know staying in Brazil isn't what is best for his career.

Ancelotti will go back to the diamond, either Ramires as DM and Malouda on the left, or Mikel at DM and Ramires on the left. Neymar better complements Drogba upfront compared to Anelka, so there is no risk of him not getting games. Kalou plays enough, and Neymar is leagues above him in talent.

The price will be 25 million pounds, he will sign 5 years for 55,000 a week. A bargain considering his potential.(33)(23)

Celtic will not sign Shay Given or Jelavic. Jelvaic will join Rangers and Given will more than likely join Arsenal. Celtic will hopefully look at a decent CB, preferrably in his 30's with a wealth of experience or Sean St Ledger or Ramis. There 2 guys want to come but we will no doubt sign another doughnut! Dont think we will see another striker until January when we realise Samaras and Fortune and not the answer, look to see Hooper and Maloney as the 2 strikers!

Jon stead was not at the Preston hotel as that shut down nearly 3 years ago. If he was in Preston he would have been at the Marriott as that is where pne conduct some business I.e interviews, negotiations and pre match meals. Long connection between the two. Parkin stops the night before home games, parry lived there for 3 months etc. The only likely ins at deepdale will be a striker and defensive cover. The striker will not be a big name as we do not have the money. More likely an up and coming from lower division. Likely list of Brodie, Pitman or McLean. Defence would possibly be de laet from united as SAF likes the exposure his current crop are getting at deepdale(18)(7)

Hi ed do you have some Newcastle news today mate. Is there more news on Ben arfa or someone els.

{Editor's Note: Ben Arfa will go to Newcastle if the club are willing to pay a transfer fee. As I explained last week, once he walked out on the club any thoughts of a loan were off the table. Marseille made it clear to Newcastle and recalled the player. With Oezil heading to Madrid Werder Bremen will probably push ahead to buy the player. Marseille are actively rebuilding already so there is no option for Ben Arfa to stay there.}

Ed do you think that newcastle will pay the fee and do you know where newcastle are in the deal ?

{Editor's Note: I understand, and this is from an absolutely impeccable source, that as of yesterday (Tuesday) Newcastle had only ever proposed and discussed a loan for the player. Marseille approached Milan (not the other way around) about a possible exchange of Ben Arfa for Huntelaar – the response was very much a shrug rather than a yes or no. Hoffenheim have offered a suitable fee but Ben Arfa is not keen. Werder Bremen have to be favourites.}(21)(10)

 

 18 Aug 2010 12:31:30
This is 100% accurate.

Jenas(Spurs) will join Stoke by the end of the transfer window, Juventus have pulled the plug on their deal and both parties are willing to do a deal.

Pennant(Zaragoza) will also join Stoke by the end of the transfer window, Pulis has been working on the deal all summer and this one's nailed on.

Rodallega will NOT join Stoke, neither will N'Zogbia, the latter is moving to Marseille and he is uninterested in a move to any premiership club outside the top 6. Haven't been given any more information regards to Rodallega.(22)(34)

James Milner to complete his move to Manchester City for £24m with Stephen Ireland moving in the opposite direction to Aston Villa – in part of the deal.

Ola Toivonen, PSV striker is a target for Roy Hodgson and a fee of around £5m will be bid by the Liverpool manager after scoring 24 in 49 games for the Dutch side last term. Tottenham have also joined the race.

Neymar will not be moving to Chelsea.

Martin Skrtel has signed a two year deal extension to keep him at Liverpool till 2014.

Brad Jones has completed his move to Liverpool for a fee of £2.3m.

Benfica have made an approach for Arsenal left back Armand Traore.

Manuel Almunia could be on his way out of Emirates if Arsene Wenger brings in a new goalkeeper.

Sunderland are planning a bid for Wigan midfielder Charles N'Zogbia.

Edixon Perea, the Columbian international is in talks with Blackburn and would be a free transfer.

Blackpool have signed Dekel Keinan and are looking to buy Bournemouth's Brett Pitman.

Loic Remy's agent suggests he could be moving to a new club by this week. Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham, Stoke, Everton, Aston Villa, West Ham and Marseille are all thought to be monitoring him.

Stoke have been linked with a £9 million pound move for Hugo Rodallega, the Wigan striker.

Stoke also failed in a bid to take Craig Bellamy to the Britannia Stadium.

West Brom have agreed terms with Nigerian striker Peter Odemwingie, as they failed in their attempt to get Liverpool striker David N'gog.

Portsmouth and Leicester are in the lead for the chase of West Ham striker Frank Nouble.

Wolves are interested in Hull striker, Caleb Folan.

Marseille have made a formal offer to Toulouse for Andre–Pierre Gignac who they see as the perfect partner to their other target Loic Remy.

As i said yesterday about the bounce game at murray park ed , i went along to see for myself.

George Welcome scored 2 crackers and another tap in – LOOKS AN ABSOLUTE BARGAIN FOR 400K!

Bazarite – Created 2 goals – Floated about from wing and then inside – looked a great signing aswell

Salim Kerkar – Algerian midfielder , didn't hesitate to get stuck in , like a mix between Tugay and Ronald De Boer , very good on the ball and a no nonsense tackler.

Etienne Esajas – looked fast , powerful and a bit of skill , only lasted 15 minutes , backing up what the Daily Record says . . Might play once , then be out for 2–3 weeks . .wouldnt take this one myself !

ALSO , JELAVIC – Expect silence on this until after the Villa games , he's desperate to come , and a deal still COULD go through , i hope we just forget about him tbh

Expect offer for Goodwillie in the next 48 hours.

I told you we would sign Olifinjana, I told you we would sign Bellamy. I also told you we would sign Lee Naylor that will be done this week along with Chris Riggot we will then have one more to come in a striker whose name I cannot reveal yet as its not a done deal. As for everybody in the press complaining about Cardiff Citys debts, there is only one football related debt (the Motherwell debt) which is in the hands of the clubs solicitors. However I am told this will be cleared up within a week. We know you all hate us because we hear it and see it all over the media – but guess what? WE DONT CARE!(40)(40)

Whoerver said (below) is close. But Davids is a short–term 6 month deal, Grax is on laon for the season, Whilst Counago is on a 2 year deal. Rhodes won't be joining due to Huddersfield wantiong 2.5 million and Alan Lee.

But Davids, Grax and Counago will improve the Palace squad. Also Palace's Jay Simpson offer is still on the table and being considered as Simpson would prefer to stay in London. He hope QPR will make a late offer, but might just accept the most cash and join Hull.

"Edgar davids, pablo counago, sebastian grax and Jordan Rhodes all to join palace by Monday.

Davids 1 year pay as you play, Rhodes and counago 3 year deals and grax 2 years.

After a quiet transfer window for Blackburn, 3 signings will take place shortly. Lewandowski, Bance and Benjani are on their way.

Just thought I'd give you a snippet of an interview given by Steven Defour's Agent (Paul Stefani) to Sport/ Voetbal Magazine in Belgium.
"Clubs interested in him want to know one thing: to find out if he finds the level that he was at previously. Is not yet the case, this is why we have excluded offers this summer. During the winter truce (a term the french–speakers use for transfer window!) we will re–assess the situation."
Of a bit more interest, the magazine says that "Manchester United and Liverpool would closely follow the master player from standard, but Stefani does not know if these clubs were preparing to make a bid." Bizarrely, Standard also stressed that the player could now interact with the press (they banned him from speaking due to all the speculation), but that he could not raise the subject of the truce (ie. the transfer window and the prospect of a move) until the end of August.(14)(10)

Neighbours Newcastle United and Middlesbrough are fighting it out to sign highly rated Hibernian midfielder David Wotherspoon. The 20 year old broke into the first team last season after Hibernian's impressive under 19 team won the U19 Scottish League and Cup for the first time in the club's history. Despite only signing a new deal after the success the lure of playing in England for one of England's most recognised and established clubs may tempt him to prompt the Hibs Board to accept a £1.5 million offer from the two clubs in order to facilitate his dream move.(12)(24)

ED – any rumours regarding inter and juve. they've gone very quiet on us recently but i reckon juve need a couple more players and inter possibly one or two, especially since they have a new manager.

and regarding your comments that there is no way given will be sold to arsenal: i get where you're coming from as it would make little sense from man city's point of view, but i believe that if wenger got off his ass and tried, he could use his previous dealing with man city (toure and adebayor) to his advantage, but i don't see him spending that sort of money on. .well anyone {editor's note – I can see him getting Given on loan from City, but I just don't see them selling him to them. Inter were quiet because they had no money to spend until they sold, now they have sold Balotelli that has changed. But Rafa relied very much on scouts to choose his targets by the end of his time with Liverpool, that is why so much got leaked, if he doesn't trust his scouts at Inter things might be kept quiet.}(8)(12)

Something tells me that Lassana Diarra could be on his way out of Real Madrid (hopefully to man utd), if you look on the real madrid website the 2010/ 2011 home shirt with printing most players cost £51 (for mens size), with diarra's costing just £39 for shirt and printing, does that mean they are trying to get rid of diarra 10?
Its definately just Diarras that is cheap in womens kids and mens as if you click 'price ascending' he is the cheapest and the first 3 options.!.
Just an OPINION maybe just clutching at straws here.

What you think ED??

Rangers played several trialists in a closed door game yesterday, involving:

G. Welcome, who scored a hat–trick,
N. Barazte, who played really well on left midfield (a postion that must be filled),
Etienne Esajas, apparently failed to impress and,
Salim Kerkar who had a decent game.

Though it is likely an offer will be made to sign N. Barazte on a season loan and an offer in the region of £400k will be made for G. Welcome, however there may still be issues involving a work permit.

N. Jelavic, this saga will finally come to a conclusion when he heads to Govan to sign a 4 yr deal.

Jelavic isn't in Scotland and Rangers don't have £12m to spend. Looks like we'll sign Barazite, Esajas, and George Welcome. Jelavic will sign eventually but he may be cup tied by that time. We'll still sign him though as the SPL is our priority.(29)(46)

now im not a disgruntled tim but as far as i can remember wellbeck signed for Sunderland last week so please do not spout rubbish and when did rangers become a feeder club for Man U seems to me that a lot of Fringe players are heading to Grayskull and did fergie and giggs not say now is the time for these youngsters to stake their claim

After Harry's frustration over lack of transfers earlier in the window, he apparently just threatened his players saying "If you don't win your next match, I'll replace the lot of ya!" He then went on to say he will be adding to the transfers in of "Pienaar and Wickham." What do you think of this ed?

Leeds utd news:

Mixed bag I'm affraid, looks like SG is in fact going to bring darius vassell back to england and the rumours concerning woodgate are true, he will join on a 6 month loan before the millwall game.
Would have rathered we took steven caulker from spurs as he would give our static and clumsy back 4 some much needed pace.

One positive signing to be made however, rob hulse will return to leeds for 1.1 million and the honduran trialist Nunez will be signed.

A very disappointed leeds fan, wouldn't be surprised if SG gets the sack this season
I guess we are signing Woody to share crutches with Paddy, KB will do anything to save a few quid. If Woody was fit it would be a fantastic signing(53)(56)
