He can have shelton martis,gary woods and the rest of the rubbish he brought to the club,forest deserve odysmall. {Ed001's Note - the man kept Donnie in the Championship for years on the lowest budget in the division, most League 1 and 2 sides had a bigger budget, yet you are showing him no respect! Sad, that really is.}

All you children who just want to see there name on a web page grow up! Cody McDonald to Peterborough,Swindon,Colchester etc etc your a bunch of muppets,for a starting point he's injured and thorn spent best part of £500,000 on him,a year ago so why would they accept a bid of £250,000 for him? Tim fisher said on Cwr 3 weeks ago that after the sale of bigot to Newcastle we are in good health and don't need to sell any one! But if a bid comes in for a player it has to be the best deal for the club! And I believe he has been true to his word.(for a change) I think £1.1 mil for keogh and getting ball and Reece brown on loan is a master kids please stop your idol tittle tatter and guess work!

ive watched Amari Morgan Smith a
few times and i believe he is on
trial at Donny, he would be a good
signing for u because he is fast, tall
(6ft) and has a good finish. Only prob
last season was that he was injury
prone but he still scored 10 goals in 21
games. He could create a lethal
partnership with Damien Reeves and
my money is on Doncaster to bounce
straight back up

Any sale of any Southend Utd player will result in a large proportion of the money being received by the Club being handed over to creditors to whom they owe a large amount of Cash. Bids for players have been made since May but the Club have continually denied this as to not alert those creditors and it is why unreasonable price tags will be placed on players ( considering many have only a year left on their deals) because Club know a large percentage of income will have to go to creditors meaning Club will have very little left over for themselves. I,e a Low fee received will result in creditors demanding every penny thus leaving Club with nothing. Very little will be re-invested back into squad which is why Club are reluctant to sell. It could dampen promotion hopes.

For all those who keep saying Boyd will go to Palace for £400k, absolute rubbish. The Posh board have gone on record to say they would rather keep him for his last year than rather let him go for little money. Try a Mill you may get him. He's also been given the NO.10 shirt again this season already which may speak volumes. Taylor I think will go but again he's stated he wants Prem football not mid table Championship which some person suggesting he off to Palace is ridiculous.

My dad is working in Lille at the moment as a customs officer, and said he signed in an Arsenal player, who he never heard of but recognised, called Yao Kouassi. I told him it was Gervinho. probably visiting old friends and family, but could a return possibly be on the cards with heavy competition for a regular starting spot? (his forehead was much smaller than he thought it would be apparently)

Hi Eds - I just posted a post about LUFC takeover. I meant to post it on the Leeds United page. Not the general page. Sorry guys. {Ed001's Note - no worries, it might still interest some people on here too.}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

20 Jul 2012 06:53:21
Morning all. I have never posted anything purporting to know when the takeover will happen, or who it will be, but I would like to draw attention to the article on YEP this morning about this evenings game against Farsley - which is an interview with Neil Parsley. In it he says: "There's also a lot happening down at Elland Road at the moment and hopefully there's some news on that before the fixture comes which would really nail the event for us.

"I expect something to happen before the game from what I've heard."

Obviously only hearsay, but it makes me wonder who he's been speaking to to come to that conclusion. He seems to have a fairly good relationship with NW as well.

It would be absolutely fantastic news if something is announced today!

Hello Ed - Do we have any ideas why Saints are not proceeding with Buttner when his agent is saying that the player and his club are now ready to sign {Ed001's Note - not at the moment, nothing concrete, but I would say it is most likely that there is a different target in mind for that position.}
