stoke set to offer mladen petric premier league lifeline after being released by fulham
Good player - will score goals in the prem if given a chance. Good acquisition for Stoke.
By the way, Stoke will be alright with Hughes, he is a decent manager who knows the game well and is ok tactically - unlike Jol. Hughes had an awful time at QPR for various reasons but still worth a prem team giving him one more chance.
He would of been a perfect signing for us if it were reality. I was hoping we would make a move for him but arnautovic it is. No clue as to why he wasn't utilized by fulham he is full of talent.
To the guy above, he and Berbatov were too similar to play together, it didn't work. He got chances, he didn't take them. I have no doubt he's got a season or two of top quality in him.

Becchio was at Rockcliffe last night, arriving along with Butterfield. Too bad Norwich couldn't get Vaz Te then Becchio would have signed on the dotted line. Loan next week.
Boro still looking into a loan or a Januray move for Jelle Vossen. Problems with payment installments and his injuried knee stopped it from happening. JM
Becchio was not there last night as he was in norwich, as I saw him having a meal with jonny howson
JM. i'm sure like a lot of us boro fans you will agree we have just alerted everyone about this rough diamond vossen. we won't get him now, as for becchio its probable we won't get him either
The problem was we never bidded anywhere near their valuation of the player, simple as.

Watford to sign Nathaniel Chalobah on loan as he didn't move to a premiership team on loan during the summer transfer window.
Can not see this happing as I think chelsea will not let him come back to watford has he spent last season with us but you don't know g. z will look at other targets instead.
Why would him being with Watford last season have a negative impact over him being sent to Watford again?! Surely they saw he got played regularly, he fit in well with the team and that he developed a lot so that would make them more likely to allow him to go back there on loan.
He isn't going to play at all and now can't go to a prem team until jan, short loan possibly?
04 Sep 2013 11:06:56
He made 38 appearances for Watford last season scoring 5 goals under the tutelage of a Chelsea Legend.
There is no reason why Chelsea wouldn't want him to come back here.
It's a bit like completing a level on a game. Some people will want to replay to improve their score and others will want to move onto the next level as per natural. Can personally see Chalobah making a return.
Except in this analogy the game has kicked him back to the previous level without giving him the choice of progressing.
Chalobah will return to watford!. and maybe stay on next season too

Kei Kamara and Jacob Butterfield signed.
Becchio and Ayala to sign on a short loan before a permenant move in the January transfer market.

West brom will sell Shane long in the January transfer window, and replace him with quaglirella who already had his medical in Italy but didn't have time to sign
Why did lukaku choose Everton over wba was it him or Chelsea. kul
Quaglirella did HAVE time to sign. Plenty of time in fact, the whole of the months of July and August!
Lukaku wanted to come back to WBA and negotiations were ongoing, but Everton were prepared to offer a better loan deal, along with whispers that Chelsea were trying to push the Lukaku deal towards Everton than West Brom (god knows why). But it's academic. Everton have their man - even though their man wanted to go elsewhere.
We didn't express interest till late because unless you didn't notice but the only things we did were on the last day
Lukarku wanted to come to West Brom, but Everton offered a lot more in a loan transfer about 5 mill
iam told and we know JP wouldn't pay that, mind you think it was worth doing as the long deal would have gone through, iam told from an Everton supporter they couldn't
wait to get rid of their guy spends a
lot of time on his bum rather than his feet
Apparently it was chelsea who said lukaku had to go to everton because albion are taking chelsea to court over izzy brown bit of bad blood
Lukaku quote, "I decided that Everton was the best choice. A more prominent club than West Brom where I had a good time. ”
03 Sep 2013 17:11:20
Been bad blood between Chelsea and WBA over the Izzy Brown deal and although Lukaku expressed a preference to return to WBA, Chelsea accepted Evertons offer as they offered a loan fee rumoured to be around the £5m mark
Anichebe will be great signing, could be massive for wba
£10million. someone somewhere
Victor scored 26 goals in nearly 10 years at everton
Where you get that quote from lukaku about everton more prominent than wba
He's barely played for us so you can't judge his goal scoring record. He's a strong striker who's capable of holding the ball up and is a good signing for you (everton fan)
This Long deal was all down to JP & Garlick. they are making a mockery of the club. They wanted to sell Long to balance the books. If hull can agree terms in a couple of hours why has it taken us since Christmas. JP and his small arms crew will kill wba. For all the good Dan Ashworth may have done and he signed some shockers as well, it will go down the pan. JP should put a realistic price on his shares and see!KUL
I think Lukaku wanted to come to the Baggies but Jose must have fallen out with Steve Clarke.
Come on you Baggies.
Victor got 8 goals last season and I bet he didn't start to many games so leave the lad alone its a great signing he will prove people wrong
Lukaku quote is all over the Internet.
As the post above says, 8 goals last season, mainly as a sub. Give the man a chance, WBA would not pay £5m for someone unless they had faith in him. Come on, we need a change as no goals in 3 games. I think sessegnon will be the key though. Great signing!
06 Sep 2013 17:11:44
money talks and everton offred top dollar around 5 million to loan lukaku which is a massive fee for just someone on loan although they see it as an investment if he fires them to a good finishing spot. top half of the prem is worth 40 million.
chelsea and wba are locked in a batrtle over chelsea pinching there starlet izzy brown and tryna snare him on the cheap. wba are taking them to tribunal so obviously chelsea wasnt ready to do wba any favours.

Stoke City are set to beat Chanpionship side reading to the signing of recently free agent Momo Sissoko
Sissoko has been at Reading the whole time and will be unveiled soon.
03 Sep 2013 14:21:44
Suppose wouldn't be too bad if he wasn't injury prone!
03 Sep 2013 15:28:24
Is this true?
I'm not sure what happened last night qpr got three good players in and Wigan bid 6 million for a striker. I must of checked this website at least 50 times and the reading website too. NA said he wanted three more signings and all I can see is we are in talks with a player that most of the premier league teams would love to have. Don't get me wrong I am pleased with the team we have but we lost kebe and maps and it doesn't look like we have replaced them ok mabe Royston has come in but it won't take long for the rest of the leauge to figure out how to play him out of games! If their is no money and we are such a great run football team that's fine but please don't keep telling us about trying to get back in to the premier league sorry to bang on just a bit disappointed come on you royals.

Boro sign Jacob butterfield on initial 3 year contract, but no sign of becchio and Ayala? And gutted about vossen😳😕
03 Sep 2013 00:44:34
Loan deals lined up for next week, no sense in completing them today and paying extra wages when there is no game for 2 weeks.
Becchio deal looked complete until vaz te deal to Norwich broke down. Deal may still go ahead but billy sharp is a potential target if the Becchio deal is called off.
Boro have become frustrated with Ayala delaying a decision in the hope of attracting a prem move. Wheater was mentioned but he was included as part of an offer made by Bolton for Rhys Williams. Other centre halfs are being considered if Ayala deal does not happen.
Still waiting for confirmation on this but the club have not given up on signing Jelle Vossen, Gibson is trying to push through a deal to sign him on loan for a high fee with a permanent deal in place for jan. really hope this is true, he's a first class player!
If more signings do go ahead expect to see emnes, hoyte and haroun to leave on loan to help balance the wages.
I heard that vossen on loan view to perment deal as well.
Good informative post however. the vossen deal is not alive and we shouldn't even bother with ayala now.
becchio is the man but would settle for sharp if we don't get him, if that is true
No way we will let go of Becchio without getting a replacement. That's it to and from Norwich till January I'm afraid.

Boro sign jacob butterfield on a three year deal
