There's Murder on the Dance floor at the Ashton Gate Disco as news has filtered through that the DJ is not coming after all ! Surely no surprise there though ?

However the casting of the re- enactment of 'Moses' is going well for the 'faithful' as Adomah, Bolassie, Pitman, Stead, Skuse, Kilkenny and others are all vying for the lead role .

We are in dire need of some creativity in the team, i would give mccourt his chance beside hoops up top. give him licence to do what he likes. He cant be any worse than the traffic cone that is SAMARAS. Thoughts Please...........

If Ki does go to the Swans, you will have a fantastic player. Ki was voted Asian player of the year when we bought him, the guy is class. He will love the time & space he will get on the ball in the premiership, something he didn't get in the rough n tumble SPL. Wish all you Swans the best for the new season, had an impressive 1st game.

I maybe a sceptic but I dont see these transfers coming off, since the Nathan Clyne signing its seems like we have made enquiries and bids that we know will not be accepted almost to keep the fans happy.

Why have we lost out on Buttner when he was ready to sign 2 months ago yet we faffed around for United to come in and seal the deal within 48 hours (because they wanted it to happen)

The same can be said for Michu who lets face it looks quality and went to Swansea (because they wanted him to sign and got on and done it)

Here we are with Ramirez knowing full well that 11.8 million is not enough but it looks good that we are enquiring about him when Jermain Lens is available at 6-7 million but we shy away, cynical I know but Im starting to get too suspicious and hope that I am proved wrong.

Saints fan here- fair play to ur lads getting a point with 11 new players on the pitch not an easy task against a decent side. Good luck for friday hope u survive

Believable3 Unbelievable10

How can you disagree....I am a saints supporter yes but that doesnt mean i hold a ridiculous grudge against any one else for supporting there team. The disagreers are the sort of people who winge about plastic fans but then winge about other teams such as portsmouth, what do you want them to do? support saints? oh but then they would be plastic fans. Secondly i wish them all the best as we were in this state a few years ago but were lucky enought to survive without havin to go to such desperate matter as fielding 11 new players. and imagine the south coast derby without portsmouth...tey would be nobody for adam lallana to walk past and embaress.

City sign Davies from Derby on 3 yr deal, will hopefully make debut against Palace. Just need a centre back and if possible a goal scoring midfielder.

not a rumour, is it me or is the standard of kits in britain much higher this season, just watching the Football League Show and some of these kits are a huge improvement on last season, im loving Notts County's orange strip.

Believable2 Unbelievable1

Not all of them are. As a Southampton fan I'm disapointed with our new home kit.

Norwich city fan-favourite Dani Pacheco has not been given a squad number for LFC this season. Given that many people believe NCFC need a pacy forward, it could be possible that we could go for him on a loan deal.

After todays performance, i feel we need a better left back, fox was out of his depth today, and parts of last season. We need a young pacey solid left back, whether or not shaw could step up i don't know, hope so. Also we need a few centre halfs, was impressed with fonte and hooiveld they have a good relationship and understanding however if one gets injured who's next? Matt Youngs if Dan Seabourne goes out on loan? In Nigel we trust!COYR

LOVED watching you girls get handed your arse on a plate! Won't be long before you come whizzing back down again, it's going to be a long season for you, let's hope you set a new record for fewest points, couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of nobheads. COYR...bwaaaa!

West Brom boss Steve Clarke wants to sign a left-back as cover and to challenge Liam Ridgewell.

Possible targets include Bolton's Marcos Alonso and the versatile Keiran Richardson, who had a loan spell at the club in the 2004/05 season in which he made a major impact, helping the club achieve 'the great escape', but West Brom failed in a bid to bring him to The Hawthorns on a permanent basis.

Believable0 Unbelievable5

Looks like Richardson is off to West Ham for £3 million, Baggies wont pay that much for someone to sit on the bench.
