Adam johnson to Blunderland. Cant believe it. And mr Southgate at Boro didnt think he was worth a game. That says it all Mr Gibson. And who have we got today? Miller. Oh how the mighty are fallen.

Congrats on the signing of Ki. Hope my club Celtic have placed "add ons" in the deal as I honestly believe he will shine in the Premiership. He will flourish in a side that plays football the way it's played at Swansea. Good luck to him and to the Swans for the future.
Besides always had a Swansea soft spot since John Hartson said they were his team!

This may surprise most of you, but Villa will play well & honourable in defeat to Everton 2mro, However this may be a blessing in disguise as it will make CRYSTAL CLEAR exactly what we {RL,PF} have to accomplish before 11pm next Friday,

A Marquee signing plus 2. Marco Reus/Sofiana Feghoui type players would be awesome....this is just a clue as to what type of level we will need to compete, look at the Laudrupt,Stoke,WHam,Swansea, Could we currently even envisage beating any of these team? last Saturdays result is the answer! In Villa we trust. that emans you to RL/PF

Gaston Ramirez threatens not to play for Bologna to try and force a move to Saints. He says "if the conditions we laid out at the start of the transfer window ate met, the player will be sold. Otherwise we wait. The fee is Ǩ15 mill".

Maybe the transfer isn't so dead after all. Wait and see I guess but I get impression it's a bluffing game with window closing soon.

swansea city transfer signings by the 31st of august

ki- 6m done deal

emnes- 3.2m to be completed by wednesday

tom ince- 4m plus dobbie (before the blackpool fans start mouthing, i know paul ince wants him to stay, but tom as said it would benefit his career if he was to move, blackpool reckon the transfer is a win-win, quality player and 4m)

pablo hernandez- 5m completed by wednesday

varane- loan, completed by sunderland match

we will sell sinclair to man city for 6m plus add ons taking the deal to 8m, tate is going to burnley for 500k, lita is going to leeds 1.3m, bessone is off to brentford on a free, gower is off to peterborough or charlton for 400k..

Believable0 Unbelievable1

Ha ha ... tom ince wants to stay one more year .. doddie wants double the wages blackpool pay.. you my welsh friend .. should stick to talking to sheep ..something your use too....

maximus {Ed001's Note - Doddie? I will have a word for you, though the only problem you will have is getting him off the pitch so the match can start. That man will work until he is dragged off if you give him an audience!}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ha ha ..ed .. you always get me ... spelling not great .. but neither are liverpool at moment .. but glad they put there 4th team out .. and give hearts fans a twitch .. funny watching it .. liverpool didnt break sweat ... but tipical
sweaty fans .. jumping up and down for nothing ... half time was good thou .. they had a " toss the tree comp" got called off when a woman won .dressed as a man ... tipical scottish..

maximus {Ed001's Note - it wasn't just Hearts fans all excited, I was editing Rangers earlier and the Celtic fans were posting about how it showed just how strong Scottish football was! I was a little confused how losing to a low on confidence and form Liverpool semi-reserve team showed the strength of Scottish football in a good light. We even played Adam and brought Downing on to give them a chance! ;o)}

Agree1 Disagree0

Ha ha ed001 ... scottish football is stronger .. when the likes of rooos sorry ross county .. dundee ... st mirren .. my mothers not well ... compete .. rangers league 3... i hate scottish football .. but hope one day rangers move into the english league .. no rubbish .. cardiff .. swansea.. after whats happened rangers is a total disgrace .. in the spl... crap league maybe huddersfield could join it?Ǭ!!!!!

maximus {Ed001's Note - personally I would prefer to see them just split the money more equitably and give the smaller clubs a chance to compete up there. That is what is needed, no offence to Celtic or Rangers, but it is boring without any kind of challenge from the rest of the SPL. At least in Spain the technical quality is high, to make up for the lack of competition.}

Please may you stop putting false rumours that Luke James is joining Carlisle from Hartlepool for £1 million as Carlisle do not have the financial ability, even though Winning the JPT boosted the coffers but they still only lead to a £200 thousand profit, (two years in a row) but previous to that we had a loss of £2million.

If he did join the maximum fee that Hartlepool would get is probably about £250 thousand which would still break Carlisle record fee paid.

Believable0 Unbelievable1

You seem to be missing the point that even if Carlisle could afford him, he would hardly leave for another L1 club...

Two quick snippets;
1) watford are close to signing striker geoffrey mujangi bia from standard liege, been on loan at wolves and struggled to get a game a couple of years ago but scored 12 goals in 14 games for liege so looks like a player with potential

2) how on earth does Joe Garner get a game? 22 appearances and 1 goal is abysmal by any standards!

Believable0 Unbelievable2

Hope we get Bia he's supposedly a bit good , maybe Garner can go the other way [with 14000 Watford boots up his jacksy]

It's been confirmed today that Huddersfield are still on the look out for new players. Expect to see a whole new batch of rumours following Simon Grayson's comments.

Town still saying that Jordan Rhodes is going nowhere. With the caviat that everyone has their price.

It's thought an upfront of £8m plus add ons could secure his services but so far no one has been willing to stump up the cash.

Fans of other teams question whether he's worth it. But as it's an owners market with the Scottish international they call the tune.
