Ed can you shed any light on who sam baldock is signing for? There seems to be 3 teams in for him with sky tv saying that bristol city were close to signing him. But who in your opinion will sign him. If you could share what you know then that would be great. Cheers.

The Jordan Rhodes to brighton story is dead. But it makes ya think if his is willing to let record signing. Cms leave already he must have a player of better calibre comin in who will probably be less than asking price of cms

CMS to leave Brighton he did not play in the 3-1 thrashing of Chelsea and will join Leeds in the next week. He will be replaced by Bobby Zamora and Ross McCormack

Believable1 Unbelievable7

Dreamland, won't happen CMS at club yesterday with his family, very settled, will not be moving? Large striker coming in end of next week on loan only .... Other options have not worked out. BZ, yes discussions did take place but no more than that, BZ too expensive ... Despite pie and a pint now £7.90 at Amex!!!!!!!

Agree0 Disagree2

Cms is joining leeds ,needs a new challenge with a bigger club

Agree2 Disagree0

CMS is over-rated - a good player that gives comitment and lots of huff and puff but not that skilled, sometimes has a good run of goal scoring but only at mid level and deserved of his efforts...COYRs..

aberdeen to sign mark reynolds and milsom to stay
people have put the dons down to finish 6th but i reckon motherwell hearts and killie way too weak aberdeen have good young players combined with experience of vernon fallon anderson and langfield
the class of hayes and mcginn will see the dons in the top 3
its the least the hardy dons fans deserve after years of rust on their metal core
dont be surprised if aberdeen soon stay in the top 2 as rangers r gone for 3 yrs and the dons have 15000 plus attendances celtic beat them today but celtic were lucky aberdeen r the 3rd biggest club no question bout it hearts will finish bottom half

According to the posts on here, Sam Baldock and DJ Campbell will both sign on Monday.
We shall see in two days how good these posts are! Also how close these people are to the club as they suggest!
Tommy smith could come back and £1.8m is an absurd figure. It will all depend on his personal terms as why would he give up good wages at the end of his career?
We need a good left back centre back and a recognised striker. The loans are nothing but hope on the pizza family's side. There unknown to the championship and have no idea how well they will fair in a high tempo hard tackling league.

Blackpool are lining up a deal for Emile Heskey on a free transfer. As I a Blackpool fan I hope that we do sign him as we are desperate for a big target man who can hold the ball up and he is very good at this. He also pops up with a few goals but we don't struggle for that at the moment so we just need a target man

Believable3 Unbelievable0

Not that desperate!

with all the Blackburn players being linked with a move to Southampton (i.e. Olsson, Dann, Pedersen) don't be surprised to see Lee Barnard being used at a make-weight in any deals that may be done. As well as Nigel Adkins confirming Barnard will be leaving the club, Steve Kean had expressed a desire to bring in 2 more strikers to the club and Barnard is a proven goal-scorer.
