Now my latest scoop from SoL is that Qiunten Fortune is a definite to sign in January he has been spotted in the home crowd on Saturday gone and was spotted with Keane after the match by journalists working for A Love Supreme, a Sunderland fanzine, and has agreed terms with the club to move from his club in the middle eastc for a fee of around £1.5 million. Kavanagh is poised to sign for Derby in the coming weeks and Keane is said to be looking for a top qualifty midfielder with Diarra of Arsenal being mentioned from within the club. If we survive this season Keane will then go in for players at the next level with Shaun Wright–Phillips being ligned up as the Summer transfer swoop that will excite the fans. Ha'way the Lads FTM.

To the guy who said: "Whoever posted saying that I was wrong about Wes Brown buying a house in Tunstall Vale, Sunderland, is very wrong. Wait until Janurary when Roy Keane offers him 65k a week (10 k more than Man U). "
You may well be right about Brown buying a house in Tunstall Vale. I know Brown is going to Sunderland. But you are way off on the money. The reason Brown is looking to leave United is because he is on much less money than other established players. He wants 50K a week, he is actually on £35K a week. So the Sunderland offer is nearly double his United wage.
Rumours, Benzema and Ivanovic to OT in January. Both his top targets. Berabatov to Newcastle. Owen to City. Ballack to Madrid.
Thats all for now
