Ey up lads, an inside source at Leeds tells me we are in talks with dexter blackstock, and possibly macheda from Man U

Believable0 Unbelievable7

You sell Man Utd Cantona, Ferdinand, etc., and buy Macheda from them, yet you claim to be rivals - priceless.

Agree7 Disagree1

Whats rivalry got to do with it, who do you support, every team buys and sells from each other, its not the fans

Agree0 Disagree6

We got strachan and mqueen from man u thats another reason why the rivalry is like what it is

Agree0 Disagree3

Strachan & McQueen - Yes when they were over the hill and Man Utd had finished with them. Man Utd arguably the biggest club in the world, Leeds big city with poor support, even A smaller place like Derby average more - no offence to Derby. Man Utd Leeds biggest rivals, Leeds fans are deluded. {Ed013's Note - How can you say Leeds are a big City with poor support, most fans of rival clubs acknowledge that Leeds have a great fan base and always fill their away allocation. Sounds like a bitter fan to me}

Agree2 Disagree1

McQueen was at Leeds and went to Man Utd, not the other way round.
Peter Barnes played at Leeds and Man Utd, Arthur Graham did the same.

Agree0 Disagree0

And McQueen left through injury, went to the 82 world cup and never played.The most famous man ever to come from Kilbirnie Ayrshire.I hope the big man beats the cancer, he is as strong as Glengarnock steal.Great header to beat England way before my time, great player though wish we had somebody as good as him now.Us Scots can slag England and vice versa, one thing is for sure your not stuck for defenders like we are these days.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed013 not bitter at all! Just telling it like it is, poor home support.

Wishful signings. Lets wait and see who comes in. Pavel and Danny won't leave until the end of the season. Anyone heard anymore about Stoppila Sunzu? He would be a ideal for us.

According to Nigel Adkins no Goalkeepers will be signed this window, meaning that the Jack Butland from Birmingham to Southampton deal is unlikely to happen.

Ed - Saints Fan {Ed013's Note - You never know he may be playing it down}

Believable0 Unbelievable2

How many goalkeepers do you want?

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed013 : I'm sure it's a first if he is. In fact, it's pretty rare for him to give anything away at all!
SaintGazza {Ed013's Note - Time will tell mate, I am sure he will be moving in this window}

Agree0 Disagree0

Ed013 : I've since been reminded that he appeared to say we weren't buying Yoshida and, after recent comments made by BCFC Chairman, a move away for Butland seems inevitable. Still agree with the original poster's 'unlikely to happen' though as Adkins won't even reveal how long Lallana's injured for!
SaintGazza {Ed013's Note - Watch this space mate}

OMG Nigel Pearson has gone mad at Leicester he is trying to sign Toby Flood from Leicester Tigers as he needs a long ball specialist. That fits with his long term dream of getting into the Prem it aint going to happen alot of hard games to go yet.

Hooper - Norwich

Personally can not see this happening as he cost £2.4m only a year and a half ago. Celtic would be looking £8m plus as he is a proven goalscorer with a potential england cap. He always has Champions League football to look forward to. Holt is Norwichs top earner on £19k and can not see Nprwich paying more than Celtic are offering at the minute which is £22.5k.

More likely Hughton was checking out Izaguirre

Southamtpon Ins
Goalkeeper is a priority being linked with Butland, personally i dont get all the hype about him he will be good in the future but he wont be one of the best like everyone is saying.

Center Back, yoshida and fonte have been playing well recently.Being linked with Davide Astori who is a great defender and if saints get him he will be a great addition and at 25 he could be at saints for a number of years.

Saints need an out and out goalscorer on the bench because bringing Rodriguez on isn't doing much sept from adding a little more pace.Being linked with Hooper or Berardi

I could honestly see city getting dorrans and it would be a fantastic signing I say I could see it happening because of the west brom link
