Don't know why a world class club hasn't come in for Jack Butland? Didn't play great today but is good enough for the Premier League now and has the potential to be the best keeper in the world. Jonathan Spector and Chris Burke are also playing a league below themselves.
Would like to see Nathan Redmond leave somewhere on loan though. Isn't doing it for me in Birmingham colours. Stephen Caldwell needs to be shipped out as well as. A pure leader but not good enough for a team wanting promotion to the top flight.

Because he's probably the most over rated player ever. Never seen him have a good game yet. If any club is willing to pay silly money for him, that's their mistake.

Matej Vydra is an awesome signing for Watford. Easily good enough for an automatic side in the Championship and will be scoring 25 goals in the Premier League in the future. Going to be worth millions. Hopes he stays in England. Mark Yeates is also too good for a mid table side so hopefully Watford can fight for promotion. Nyron Nosworthy isn't good enough and should be sold and should properly replace Adrian Mariappa.

West Ham need a goalkeeper, right back and another centre half if they want to stay up. Guy Demel should have been left in the Championship, James Collins has never done it and wouldn't even get into the second best team in Wales. Big Jussi used to be top class but I'm afraid his top flight days are gone. I do believe if West Ham supply Carlton Cole, he will score and Matt Jarvis is a top signing for The Hammers!!

Chico Flores is laughable. Wouldn't get in most top Championship clubs. Can see Swansea letting in goals.
And why isn't Wayne Routledge and Nathan Dyer moving on?!?!?! Top wingers and would be worthy signings for Liverpool, Newcastle and Everton as would have Michu!

Routledge was at Newcastle and they sold him.

Obviously a jealous hammer,lol

All this talk about Nathan Redmond being a top Premier League player. Wouldn't get anywhere near the Man City team, now or in the future. Seen hin a few times and looks over confident and clearly doesn't work for him. Not a big fan and if I was Lee Clark would look to get rid on a loan or if a big offer does come in, SELL. The only Premier League midfielder at Birmingham is Chris Burke.

Looking at the league tables poor old Ipswich have conceeded 12 goals today after playing Blackpool twice. Didn.t realise that so many players were fit enough to play twice in one day. Theres only a handful of teams such as forest ,watford and bolton that haven't doubled up

It didn't take long from posting this that all of a sudden BBC SKY and Official web sites all amended their tables ,so it must all be down to one t*s*er that doesn't know what they are doing, probably a football league ref

Southampton need to sign two centre backs, a left back and two wingers to have even a chance of staying up.
Losing at home to wigan is a disgrace and proves that our current squad can't stay up.

Watford have around 8 players they wish to release on free transfers or loans asap. Some would do good jobs in lge 1 and 2

Okay, enough rubbish rumours!!

FACT: Ramirez deal is still well and truly alive. The bologna chairman has come out on Eurosport and stated this explicitly. The stumbling block, as many are already aware, is the issue of how the £12 million will be paid. Note that this is the FIRST announcement from anyone other than Ramirez's agent who is only trying to drum up interest from other clubs.

As for Biyik, I haven't been able to find an article more recent than 8 August that links him with Saints. What is clear though is that before the transfer window ends, we will sign minimum 1xCB, 1xLB, and 1xwinger. This much is clear from the types of players Saints have expressed interest in (through bidding, and through NA and NC).
