iv heared alot of rumours lately but i can tell you chesterfield need an exciting skilful player like moussa he was quality. weve made 5 signings and need another defender. tbh tommy lee will go for a fee of 500k which will give us money to bring in a good defender. richards is good but only a 10 a season man. and earnshaw isnt cuming to chesterfield we have too many strikers.........

Alexander Buttner should be a good signing if we get him. Can see saints using him as an attacking outlet despite him being a left back by trade. The Butland deal is all going quiet so could be a good thing as saints like to keep things under wraps.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

The Butland deal wont happen if the asking price is correct at 6 million + no way will NC pay that for a unproven GK but then again jay rod is unproven and we have just payed 6 million + for him so you never no. There has got to be cheaper options out there that are just as good. who ever we sign as a saints fan i trust NC and NA judgment.

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2012 20:41:03
Obviously the reason Tom Heaton left Cardiff is because he was not getting first team football, but surely its the end of Loach otherwise he wont get first team at Vicarage Road

From a huge Norwich Fan why are we be being linked with such rubbish and no- hopers.
1. Jacob Butterfield Noooooooo.
2. Chris Burke. Please Noooooo.
3. Chris McCann Noooo.
4. Nicklas Helenius Jesus wept...
The only person on here worth
looking at is Kevin Mirrallas.
O T B C .........

Believable1 Unbelievable2

Totally agree, butterfield, for one, is unproven and had a serious injury why would we want him at Norwich? We need proven premier league players sharpish or second season syndrome will happen.

Agree0 Disagree1

I think it will happen, i think you will be 17th next season mainly because Chris Hughton is new manager i think you will have a rocky start but you will pick it back up, i'm sure you will stay in the premier league though

No other Premier League sides will be buying any players as Southampton,Reading and West Ham will be signing everyone!

Believable6 Unbelievable4

Not at all. Reading can only afford half of them. Messi, Faberegas, Arshavin and Defoe wages might be a problem. Everyone else - agreed

Agree2 Disagree0

Urm don't be starting on saints fans the only signing we have said are signing we know could happen, such as Buttner and Jay Rodriguez! i expect atleast three more signings after Buttner. i think a CB, RB and CM is what we need now and with those we will be a force to be reckoned with in the premier league as we already have five bloody strikers :L

Agree0 Disagree0

02 Jul 2012 14:20:30
Not a rumour just a plea ed's ! And I think I speak for the majority of pool fan's! Can we please please please not sell suarez! He is a little gem of a player , in the top 5 best in the world in my opinion ! Would be more of a blow to the fan's then losing torres , please don't sell him

Believable1 Unbelievable4

02 Jul 2012 14:17:55
Seems like Alexander Buttner buy into the Southampton way and their ambition, he could of gone to established premier league clubs like Fulham or wealthy QPR but he sees that Saints are going places. He is quoted saying saints could be challenging Man City in a few years, a quote which echos comments made by Lee Holmes after leaving saints on a free.

Alexander Buttner has gone public on his desire to join Sourhampton. The article in SSN reads that he was in Southampton last week, was impressed at what he saw and hopes his current club accept Saints offer.

Ive no idea how good this guy is or even if hes left back or left mid due to coflicting articles. Anyone know?

Dave S.

Believable3 Unbelievable0

He broke into the team as a left back, but i believe he played left mid mostly last year, with Vitesse loaning Van Aanholt from Chelsea. I think he prefers left mid as that what he played as a youth player, however he is apparently a very capable left back

Agree1 Disagree0

Yeah normally sourhampton do there business behind close doors i do keep hearing that XD lol

Agree0 Disagree0

He is capable at left back and left mid....so if we sign him, I imagine he will have a midfield role.

Agree0 Disagree0

Not the club's fault if the player wishes to publicly express his desire to join Soton.

Would be surprised to see Scott Loach join Ipswich after his performance VS. Boro at the end of last season - Showed why he's earned an England call up and attracted Premier League interest. He could potentially prove to be one of the best keepers in the Championship if he can carry on this form and Heaton's desire for regular football will spark an intense battle for the No1 spot next season. Besides, we don't have a back up keeper with North / Bonham both too inexperienced. They need a good loan spell to make themselves known so I can see the major overhaul in the goalkeeping department set for 2013.
