20 Jan 2013 19:38:26
Martin Paterson off to charlton for 300k

Could be a good move for the lad, he's been fantastic for us but injuries have certainly had a massive effect on him, I for one would wish him all the best if he was to move on.

21 Jan 2013 00:59:41
Fantastic! He's been awful since his injury to get anything is good we have Ings, Vokes, Austin are all better



20 Jan 2013 19:15:04
Arsenal have enquired about the services of Gary Hooper again today following the Chelsea games...The 2 ceo's speak regularly anyway...Wenger wants an out and out box striker and sees the Celtic poacher as a great edition with fantastic service he would get from Arsenals creative midfield...expect media to report this tomorrow...figures around 7m + add ons - England caps etc

I doubt it arsenal would set there sights abit higher wouldn't you agree.

20 Jan 2013 18:13:32
hooper to liverpool or everton in the summer bids of 10m+, watch this space, from my scottish sources wee wise rab wwr

20 Jan 2013 17:34:34
Gary Hooper will join Fulham for 5.6m and Petric. The whites are also looking to bring in Chadli and Cisse from Newcastle

Would be great if true, but not sure Fayed will release those type of funds!

That would be great if it was to happen.

So newcastle are going to sell there only striker now? haha good one

Cisse appears to be trying to force the move



20 Jan 2013 17:03:37
Paul Lambert is quietly working behind the scenes to add to his Villa squad this week.He is hoping to tie up deals for Martin Olson, Sylvain Distin and Jason Puncheon in a triple rai raid worth £7million.

Olsen will be £3m Distin £3m Puncheon £3m does make £7m

Puncheon has said he wants to stay a saints player as he is enjoying being at the club

Will cost you more than that

You mean the Jason Puncheon who will be in Barcelona next week-and is not for sale??

20 Jan 2013 20:43:03
Olssen will cost more than 3m. West ham offed 3.5m and was told 7.5m

Like distinct would leave Everton for villa dreamer.

Distain. 35. gotta be joking.

wouldn't mind the other two though.



20 Jan 2013 16:31:44
Arsenal to spend some money after falling off the pace in the race for 4th. Have made an enquiry about Yohan Cabaye for 15 Million, they will not be signing Cavani but do want another striker and are looking at Adrian Lopez from Athletico Madrid. Wenger is interested in Zaha but does not want to pay above 8 million.



20 Jan 2013 16:26:13
Danny Graham is on his way down to Norfolk to hammer out a deal with Norwich

I hope this isn't just wishful thinking on your part, as there has been no news as to whether the bid has been accepted or not!

20 Jan 2013 21:42:30
Rumour I've heard Graham will sign for Sunderland after Swansea's League Cup game for £4.5M.



20 Jan 2013 16:20:45
Pulis will sign brek Shea and play him up strike as the lad can play wing & up front! he's netted 19 goals in 98 apps for Dallas! He will not be signed for a defensive role as Olsson is on the radar and Stoke have a good chance of signing him this time around! Bent on loan too but that's only if Crouch goes QPR or Jones goes Swansea!

Olsson will not leave West Brom till at least the summer. Steve Clarke has said West Brom will not sell any players in January.

20 Jan 2013 18:51:46
Olsson looks more like going west ham

Load of tescoburgers from an unreliable source, read this somewhere myself, Shea is not a striker he is a left midfielder/winger/full back.
Unless any othe signings do come in (Olsson, Ghoulam, Cissokho, Friend etc) Pulis will probably play him at LB until Wilson is fit again then he will more than likely compete with Etherington for the LW position.

It the Olsson from Blackburn not west brom

Not the west brom Olsson, the blackburn Martin Olsson



20 Jan 2013 16:09:00
Tottenham prepared to offer £15 million to tempt Papiss Cisse to White Heart Lane.

And why would they do that ?

Not worth that much as a neutral fan... hasn't done much since his honeymoon period



20 Jan 2013 16:04:02
Oxford United are trying to sign Denis Suárez of Man City on a short term loan deal

Oh how we would wish!!!!!!!



20 Jan 2013 15:46:01
Johnny Russell looks set to leave Dundee Utd in this window. Yesterday's hat trick hero is being courted by Celtic, Derby, Huddersfield, Crystal Palace and Nottingham Forest. Dundee Utd have asked for £1.75m but with the previous teams all after the hitman the club could let it go to a bidding war.

Everton wanted him so I think he will prefer the premiership

Russell is the real deal, he could play for anyone and would be a steal at that price

We have no chance of getting him.were in a religation battle why would he come to us?

Huddersfield had a 2m bid rejected in the summer for Russell, it will take more than 1.75m to snatch him up



20 Jan 2013 15:41:47
The rumours are true that Derby are interested in signing Dexter Blackstock. The Rams will launch a £350,000 raid tomorrow. Whether or not they get their man is a different story as my sources say that both Huddersfield and Leeds are also in for Dexter and they are more likely to pay the bigger fee.

Not true, Dex is set to sign a new contract. He's a red through and through, 350k will get laughed at.

Derby are not interested it was mind tricks.He would have started agianst the rams had the reports not come out.
Tyson left on loan to make way for
a suprise signing from scotland

Who will the surprise signing be? Billy Mckay and Chris Humprhey won't come until summer.
He expressed interest in Eoin Doyle and Jon Russell but I feel a striker isn't needed.
A centerback on loan is a more probable outfit for this window

No surprise signing :( I can 100% confirm we will not be signing anyone



20 Jan 2013 15:39:07
Pompeys conditioning coach has now joined the staff exodus to Appletons Blackburn following Luke Dowling and John Keeley. not surprising thanks to the administators imposing another 10% pay cut on all staff last week, all except for his fee's anyway



20 Jan 2013 14:55:25
Kazenga Lualua of Brighton & Hove Albion set to sign for brentford by next week, been out of favour since the team have been in the championship!

Lualaba won't leave he loves it at brighton

Utter rubbish would cost 1 million at least. Can't see brentford having that sort of money

Lua lua to brentford, lmao don't think so.

Brentford don't have that sort of money. Loan at best.

Er - BHA signed him whilst they were in the Championship. Showed recent signs of getting back to form. Won't be selling.

Never going to happen

20 Jan 2013 19:55:08
they signed him in league one actually clever cloggs he just signed on permenant deal when they went up

Dont think he go to brentford personaly

Signed him last January actually so it wasn't when they went up! So look up the stats before you start calling other people clever clogs! He won't be leaving anyway



20 Jan 2013 15:36:46
Need Graham and Hooper, A CB to challenge Turner and a creative midfielder. Any ideas for the CB and Creative Mid?

Norwich won't get either they may have abit of money to bid for players like this, but they are not big enough team and are sliding down that table fast

Curtis Davies would be the obvious good shout and has basically been told he can leave as brums finances worsen. Sure CH would like his old captain back from last year.

20 Jan 2013 19:39:57
hoolahan should be slotted into midfield, he would add creativity.. other wise you need to sign someone like ollson for 5 million and hooper and that should do for a top half table finish



20 Jan 2013 15:36:39
Southend United set to confirm the double signing of Swindon's Paul Benson and Barnet's Rickie Holmes in the coming days. Paul Benson has stated that his love for Southend is behind the move while Rickie Holmes has said that it's a dream to play for his boyhood club again. These deals will see Elliot Benyon leave the club on loan to Woking while Jack Paxman set for loan to Great Wakering.

Holmes will not go to Southend, unless for a stupid offer



20 Jan 2013 15:14:07
Gary Hooper on verge of signing an 18 month contract extension worth 27k a week, also with a built in release clause of 10 mill, as this suits both parties and if the valuation is met he can leave in the summer if the right club comes along.
also an Italian club preparing a bid of 8 mill this window

I hope this is true, suits both the club and hoops

20 Jan 2013 16:34:37
When will you Celtic fans work it out. OK so he has one game against Juve but your next away games are the dizzy heights of Raith, Inverness & St Johnstone. If you would have accepted the Norwich offer his debut would have been at Anfild followed by trips to Old Trafford, The Emirates & The Etihad to name a few. So NOW you know why he will go. It aren't rocket science!

20 Jan 2013 16:45:37
So he has a 10mil release clause but he is going to Italy for 8mil!! TOTAL RUBBISH

20 Jan 2013 18:02:48
He's not worth 10m he Plays in the rubbish League, he is just Another billy sharp, that's it,

So he has a release clause of £10M and an italian club will bid £8M.Have a day off will ya!




20 Jan 2013 13:56:45
Derby have made a bid of £350,000 from Nottingham Forest striker Dexter Blackstock.
Also, Derby have stated their interest in signing defender Joe Mattock from Sheffield Wednesday.

20 Jan 2013 15:32:35
350k? why on earth would they even bother laughing at that ?

20 Jan 2013 15:48:08
I agree.
It's far too much money to spend on him.........

20 Jan 2013 17:55:34
Derby havnt made a bid and we could have got Mattock on a free transfer in the summer.But choose not to because he's not good enough

20 Jan 2013 18:20:39
didnt leeds have 700k rejected ?



20 Jan 2013 13:31:30
Albert Adomah going to Southampton after ACN as long as no injuries. 2.75m increasing to 3.25m appearance related.

I sincerely hope you are talking nonsense. He is not Premiership quality. To be honest 2.75 million may be an overstatement of his worth!

No, we are not in the market for a right winger. We do not need one nor is Adomah good enough for the Southampton squad.

Can someone tell me what ACN is? Seeing it everywhere, will probably kick myself... {Ed001's Note - African Cup of Nations.}

Think he would be more suited to Aston Villa, they seem to fancy Championship players

Raises a serious but pertinent question about how much MP has a say in things, how the hell was even aware of Adomah I can't imagine he goes to Cabbot Circus often let alone Ashton Gate. I'm starting to believe something that was said in today's Chelsea v Arsenal game. The sky commentator said something like "Abramovich buys all the players he likes and it's up to the coaches to make them gel"

Doubt it tbh saints don't need championship player anymore

Albert may not be Premiership quality but if he moves to southampton he will be back in the championship next season where he is a quality player



20 Jan 2013 12:57:47
Stoke City Possible Transfers


Brek Shea $3.5m
Mauro Zarate £7m
Charlie Austin £5m
Yannick Bolasie £1.5m
Martin Olsson £4m


Crouch £6m-QPR
Jerome £5m-Cardiff

Not saying all of these will happen but these are the most likely there could be more watch this space


I'd love to see Jerome back at Cardiff but not a hope you'll get £5m!!

I think were pretty much on the go with brek.. as long as he is tony pulis fit then I reckon he's our's, would be quality too see zarete at the brit but I just don't think I can see him coming too a team like us.

Stoke only seem to buy players from relegated teams.

Think bolasie will cost us more than 1.5mil and jones looks more likely to move than crouch does, but would LOVE to bring those 5 into the club, especially Zarate!

Brek Shea ($3.5mill)
Olsson (£4.5mill)
Bent (loan) > (only if CrouchtoQPR OR JonestoSwansea)

That's all folks!

Ripping my sides open with lafter £1.5 mill for Bolasie not enuff for his left boot's shoe lace

Zarate won't happen, Sunderland, West Ham and QPR are also linked with him, all 3 clubs will be willing to pay higher wages than Stoke.

Stoke only brought Jerome for £4m and he hasn't done enough to improve that price.

20 Jan 2013 19:58:33
bolasie will not be leaving crystal palace if zaha leaves and even if zaha doesn't leave he's still 90% going to stay

Crouch is not worth 6 mill. Qpr looking to drop the wage bill and what crouch is asking is not reasonable. He will go for 4 mill if he is lucky. Getting to old and past it



20 Jan 2013 12:11:27
Etien Velikonja - Cardiff to Bristol City loan until end of the season
Luke Moore - Swansea to Leeds
Steve Morrison - Norwich to Cardiff loan until end of the season
Steve McPhail - Cardiff City to Barnsley on loan until end of the season. He will return to Cardiff and become coach
Rob Earnshaw - Cardiff City to Ipswich free transfer

Robert Earnshaw is not going to Ipswich. The fans do not like him for his Norwich days and Earnshaw does not like them for the heckling he recieved from them as a Norwich player...

Don't be silly .we don't need an old man like Earnshaw at Itfc.

Plus we have already signed 3 strikers this window.

And malky mackay to norwich



20 Jan 2013 12:10:37
Crystal Palace are looking at the possibility of signing QPR pair Alejandro Faurlin and DJ Campbell. Palace face competition from Hull for Campbell, but it is believed the possibility of linking up with former boss Ian Holloway as well as staying in the capital, may be enough to tempt him to make the short trip to Selhurst Park. Faurlin has been a bit-part player at QPR of late and it is believed Palace may offer him a loan deal till the end of the season, with a view of a permanent transfer.

Palace fan here, to be honest I think he will go to hull with hulls ambition to move back to the top flight



20 Jan 2013 11:58:02
Derby County are set to reject Machester City's £10 million pound plus player exchange for Will Hughes.

Of course the bid could be accepted but Derby are looking for money over a player exchange and ideally he would be loaned back to Derby.

This is why the bid will be rejected, then Hughes can progress even more in the second half of the season. Then come the summer a 10 million bid would likely be accepted and loaned back for the 2013/14 season.

Unless Derby make the playoffs.

Watford, Burnley, Brighton, Millwall, Nottingham Forest, Leeds United, Charlton, Derby, Blackburn, Blackpool all have a chance at playoffs because in this league if you pick up say 3 wins out of your next 4 you rocket up the table. Reading proved this last year.

10m plus player for will hughes!
let him go he, s good but that is silly money give cloughie 3 m to strengthen team, left back, cb, striker and pay 7m off the debt!!!!!

Watford "chance" at play-offs ? they have a chance of automatic.

20 Jan 2013 13:26:56
Watford have a chance of the play-offs? Watford are already 6th, are the league's top scorers and are one of the form teams at the moment.

On yesterdays performance you can count Millwall out.

He is worth maybe 2 million up front plus add ons etc, 10 million will never happen, Zaha is not even worth that and he plays for England.

20 Jan 2013 14:44:43
He is worth between 1.5 - 2 million at the very, very most. Is he better than say Wes Hoolohan or Shaun Maloney? No. And they would command figures in the 3-4 million bracket, have Premier League nous and would provide on a more consistent basis every week. Will is just a flash in the pan, seen it so many times before - Francis Jeffers, Michael Johnson and Eric Djemba Djemba but to name but a few 'next big things'.

A Watford are nearly out of sight if we win our game in hard we go fourth 1 point of second

Brighton have a very good chance

Why on earth would they pay you £10m and then let you keep the player for the whole of next season?

Watford are in a playoff place at the moment

Form teams at the moment- like palace were form team, like boro were. the only time form matters is the end of the season. you need to keep vydra past january for any realistic chance to get to play offs

Why on earth would they pay you £10m and then let you keep the player for the whole of next season?


To allow him to continue his development, it'd be a pretty poor investment to pay £10m for a young talent and then not let him develop through first team football. Since he's acquainted with the Derby side and flourishes there, they'd be stupid NOT to.

They didn't even pay 10 million for scott sincar

20 Jan 2013 17:16:14
After seeing him against Nottingham Forest, he is not worth £1 million

That comment on Hughes value is a bit harsh. He's a young talent, and definately has potential to become a EPL player. As with Michael Johnson, no way was he a flash in the pan, injury caused his problems as well as other personal things. Anyways isn't Will Hughes English?

Charlton are the inform team in the Championship! wouldn't be surprised with a 5th or 6th or 7th place finish this year!

20 Jan 2013 19:11:21
Vydra is guaranteed to stay at Watford unless silly money comes in. Also he has never been out of this form.

Nat Chalobah is better than Hughes

Well if your saying charlton are going to finish 5th us pool will finish 1st in the prem. but it can't happen just like charlton can't finish 5th

All this proves that youn British talent is so over priced. {Ed003's Note - Hughes? he is a talent but like you say is he worth the money being banded about? I'm not sure }

20 Jan 2013 23:50:44
Original poster here (First of all sorry about the comments about Watford they are doing better than I though, I hope you guys accept my apology and good luck in getting promoted.)

Will Hughes is only 17 he is the second youngest player to play for england under 21's. You can not compare him to Zaha, Zaha has 3 years on Hughes he is 20 years old. As for the price that is all I have heard and if you want to decide for yourself one of his better games was vs Leeds check this video out.

I know I am bias because I am a derby fan. But please before getting jealous of our talent (dont worry I am jealous of your teams players too but people will be jealous that we have him) and saying oh he was woeful vs forest etc.

Watch the video!! and decide for yourself don't let anyone else decide for you!!

All I would say is he has been injured recently and was man marked very well against forest.

Finally the reason why his value is so high is because there are no english players like him, he plays like a foreigner suiting a spanish style of football. Also I agree 10 million is ridiculous he is only worth 6 maximum but because he plays week in week out at championship level and is english his value is inflated like all english players. {Ed003's Note - I don't normally let links on,but for the guys who haven't seen him,although this is a biased compilation the kid is a good talent}



20 Jan 2013 11:50:24
Derby have been offered 8 million plus a player for will hughes



20 Jan 2013 10:57:02
Clough looking to sign a striker to play off Sammon - Danny Kedwell now in the frame. Also looking for a centre half



20 Jan 2013 10:55:04
Norwich have had increased bid for Graham accepted
and he will Travell to Norwich on Monday

Well I hope he can score six goals per match. After yesterdays dire performance that's exactly what we're going to need to stay in the prem. We should bring in 2 good strikers from abroad for around 3 million each and spend the rest on our leaky defence. Bassong was out for 1 match and look what happened

The original 5m bid from sunderland and norwich haven't even been rejected, swansea want a replacement in before he goes and he wants to come back to the north east, swansea to norwich is a huge step down!

Really! If true I am very happy!!!



20 Jan 2013 10:47:54
West Ham are lining up a 6.5 million bid for Readings lethal hitman Adam Le Fondre. Sam Allardyce and his his first team coach Ian Hendon have been keeping tabs on the inform striker and are set to test Readings resolve with the bid.

Reading do not need to sell alf he is the best striker we have had, (except for Shane long) for a long time his goals are vital if we are going to stay up and prove everyone wrong including myself. Oh and a big sorry to Steven Kelly I had my doubts but in McDermott I trust. Come on you Royals.

Alf won't go to them

20 Jan 2013 14:11:11
I am sorry! But Reading would not sell Le Fondre to West Ham! Though a bid of 6.5 million could force Reading to cash in. However, this deal looks unlikely as McDermott confessed in an interview that if Reading were to get relegated, they would not sell Le Fondre!

That would be brilliant for West Ham but I really doubt, Reading would sell le Fondre. I've been watching Le Fondre for the last 2 seasons and he is a real game changer but a bit up and down.

Le fondres going nowhere

£6.5 Million...behave!

Reading won't sell him as he is there best player and is keeping us in this league.

At least make a rumour be slightly realistic mate lol

Classic rumour/approach to unsettle a Reading player. Alf's not going anywhere.



20 Jan 2013 10:15:07
Matthew Barnes-Homer isn't moving to Cheltenham Town because he's signed a new 2 year deal with Macclesfield Town.

He's been offered a new contract but he hasn't signed it yet.



20 Jan 2013 09:44:45
ANY BRISTOL CITY TRANSFER NEWS. {Ed025's Note - not at the moment mate..

Jabo will sign intime to play Walsall next week.

Delayed again this time due to weather conditions making it tricky to hold negotiations



20 Jan 2013 07:34:12
Simon Grayson will be sacked by Huddersfield within the next 72 hours.

Good I want someone else

Lets hope so for the sake of our beloved football club, Grayson out... Atkins in... Please Deano before its too late...... Marcel...UTT TTID

If your'e going to do it! why wait!
Tomorrow morning...

Don't think Grayson will be sacked until we have a ready replacement setup, which for all we know Hoyle is in the process of deciding as we speak

Financially cannot afford to sack him and his staff.

Don't know about believe. I hope so.

Sad to say I don't know where the next win would come from under Larry. His record here has been really poor. Took someone else's team up, a two month purple patch in the Championship and other than that rubbish

Don't think we're big enough for Adkins though!

Please be true

20 Jan 2013 12:31:49
Financially cannot afford to sack him and his staff.

DH is reportedly worth an estimated £150M+

I think he can afford to sack Grayson should he wish to do so.

Sack him and his staff? he brought with him 2 assistant managers hardly a gang of staff

Andy booth to be next town manager

Grayson cannot reverse the slide. Only replacements Deano can even consider is Nigel Adkins (all htfc fans live in hope but there will be a queue at his door from other lowly Premier sides, and the affordable ones Nick Barmby (too Clarke like in experience and surely not the man to take town forward in Championship!?) and Nigel Pearson (plays 'survival' football and again not sure he could instil the confidence needed to get out of this hole any suggestions please..............

I thought he was your new messiah the way you were all ranting about him earlier in the season, talk about fickle

daen hoyle worth 450 M+ so no finacial worries there.

Grayson has to go this week or we are certain to be relegated . Also the board must take some resposibility for our present position - too many players on loan who have no affinity with the club . We sold Rhodes and should have set aside money for quality permanent signings not expensive season long loans for players that other clubs no longer want .

If we are talking about Dean Hoyle a d his finances, he sold his card business for a reported £370million, after clearing debts and transfer costs etc he was left with a reported £170million with equal split with his wife. So yes he is wealthy but in my view unable to fund his football project at this level for much longer. I simply can't see him sanctioning the cost of firing Grayson so he is more likely to back him and allow one last hurrah to bring in a couple of game changing signings to change our fortunes. As much as this is a gamble its not as large a financial train crash as firing him. Trojanhorse

Yes Dean Hoyle is worth 350 million but that does not mean all that money is for the football club! If that was the case we would be buying 2/3 millon pound players. The club lost 5 million last year and had to be balanced by sale of Rhodes. Apart from Adkins, I would like to see Paolo Di Canio. He has passion and won't settle for this rubbish.

You're obviously not a football fan because fickle is what football is (unfortunately) all about.......ask any manager!

I was at the fiasco at Watford yesterday. Quite apart from being tactically outplayed by Watford, it was clear that there was no spirit and those players were definitely not playing for their manager. I havesupported Town for over 40yrs and i've learned to recognise a team with 'relegation' stamped all over it and this is one. Without a management change, no signings will turn this around. One exception yesterday - Dadds was excellent.

Can't call this being 'fickle', this is fearing for the survival in the championship of the team we're loyal too. We've waited 2 1/2 months for this to turn around and its only got worse. Nothing fickle about it

After watching the highlights of the last few away games Peter Clarke seems to be really struggling at this level. Rob b

Could cost them more if they don't sack him and drop into div 1.. my season ticket for starters.

I was at watford too, a lot down to concentration, silly mistakes are costing us, nothing the manager can do when the team is on the pitch. but I agree too many loan signings, and that showed.

Almost all of the watford team are loan players and look how well they are doing..its about instilling passion and confidance into the players and the town players have non. Grayson is ok when the team does well but he has no plan be for when things go wrong.

Steve bruce openly admitted he is interested in bringing a egyptician to the club the name of the player is believed to be called ahmed fathy also elmo is believed to be coming back on an emergency loan deal at the end of the transfer window

20 Jan 2013 11:58:22
Is there a stipulation, that he has to bring his 'Mummy' with him, as part of the deal !

Ahmed fatty? is that brucies brother

20 Jan 2013 13:52:44
He's a good player he played for sheff utd.

An Egyptician ? Why not a Physician, A Mechanic. an Optician?



19 Jan 2013 23:55:45
Hull City are reportedly interested in Egyptian attacking mid Mohammed Nagy "Gedo" they are also stepping up their pursuit of QPR striker DJ Campbell

19 Jan 2013 22:52:44
Jordan Cook of Charolton wanted on loan by Walsall



20 Jan 2013 01:07:15
Juventus closing in on Fernando Llorente, maybe in this window or on a pre contract.

Ed - Any truth in the rumour about Dexter Blackstock having talks with Derby after today's game against Forest.

Hey edd. Any Cardiff transfer rumours yet? Is the fraizer Campbell one a done deal ?? {Ed003's Note - not that i'm aware}



20 Jan 2013 00:28:44
If other deals breakdown Norwich are looking to bring in Leeds Becchio with Morison going the other way as part of the deal.

I hope not, Becchio is not the answer to our problems....

Bust the bank it is down to the wire now striker or relegation.

He has a good scoring record, something like 18 goals so far this season and at 29 would want to prove that he can do it in the Premier League. Wouldn't be a bad signing.

Dont want any more championship players had 9 on the pitch yestarday and all where c,,, v we our a perm team in a prem world so one our two prem players would not go a miss .....our problems lie because to many champ players in our squad .....irk

I don't want to lose becchio but Morison is a good player, when he was at millwall he was a standout player on the pitch in the Leeds matches

They need to pull there finger out, or it's back to playing crap football with Ipswich



20 Jan 2013 00:16:27
Pulis has asked Jones if he wants to leave and he said he wants to even if a better offer comes from Swansea it's Kenwyne's decision! Otherwise Pulis is happy for him to stay

To be honest I think 90% of swans fans would rather keep graham

20 Jan 2013 14:20:58
This is not a rumour.. But is it just me? or on match of the day the possession stats are wrong due to swansea game with stoke match of the day say 50% 50% when I feel swansea has more of the ball and for longer periods .. And as i'm watching the game the stats say swansea had more possession in both hafes ?? So match of the day lies to fans

Definitely want Graham to stay
