    My guess is Mick McCarthy found 20p down the back of the sofa, so Sunderland can afford to keep him :D :p

    Still going, but I think his wages are a stumbling block, which they will be with Jardel as well.

    Kanoute is going to Spurs according to BBC Sport - deal to be completed in 2 weeks. Actually looks genuine, too. :eek:

    just been announced that micky adams has signed an extension at leicester and we're again being linked with signing bobby zamora. we might not be the biggest team but if spurs are after kanoute i reckon we could get him especially seeing as he's already played under micky adams at brighton
  5. Manixx

    Manixx trouble maker

    Apparantly we are after both of em (remember we only have 1 striker at the club and need a few more).

    Hod went to see Zamora on many many occasions last season so I reckon he'll end up a lilly white.....

    anyone got any opionions on Zamora?? great talent or the next Chris Armstrong?

    Beckham finally on his way to Barcelona for 30 milliion, apparently. <phew> :)
  7. Sorry.

    Sorry. give it a rest

    Saints linked to a couple of our kids, Matt Richards and Darren Bent for £3m. The former as a possible replacement for Wayne Bridge ...
  8. ChrisFilter

    ChrisFilter Like a boss.

    Jody Morris, Kevin Davies, and Zamora are all still being linked with Leicester...
  9. Sorry.

    Repka to galataary and james to barcalona are the latest runmours.

    first one might be true if they stump up some cash second one utter utter bollocks.

  11. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    Lets see, with 30 Million plus other transfer costs,a nd a couple more United player being flogged.

    Bets they get Duff, Kluivert and that geezer from Real Sociedad, the youngun.

    Man Utd. The next Real Madrid.
  12. Ronaldinho seems pretty certain to sign for United now, I think he'll be a good partner for Van Nistelrooy.

    Papers seem to think this is putting pressure on Beckham, but while I understand this financially, football-wise it would leave United without a recognised right-sided midfielder.

    Which I guess could by where Xavi Alonso comes in, who i think is the young spaniard that Lost referred to.

    Dunno about Xavi, as there's also a rumour that they may try and sign Joaquin from Real Betis

    However Madrid are also interested in him, and if they get him, I doubt they'd bother with Beckham. Xavi also has a £20 million buy out clause which might be tricky to get around, unless players go in a swap deal

    Beckham to Barca is highly dubious, as they like Nike sponsored players, and Beckham is one of Adidas' main players.

    Slight tangent - heard Barca are trying to sign Rosicky from Dortmund to partner Mendieta :cool:
  14. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    eezah geezah, read about him in the Sun (i bought it for the sport)

    Lets just say this, United to win everything but Worthington Cup next year, because they get knocked out by...erm....Cardiff.

  15. Sorry.

    Sorry. give it a rest

    I never buy this crap about clubs only signing players with the right sponsors. Bottom line - if you want a footballer you'll sign him, no matter what's written on his boots.

    That's true until you get to the superstars IMO, which would explain how Inter Milan could afford Ronaldo at a world record fee, because Barcelona refused to play ball and allow Nike to start their shirt deal a year earlier.........

    ........sad but true - Nike payed the down payout on the buck toothed one to help Inter purchase and, surprise, surprise, it nicely coincided with them wearing Nike Shirts.

    Adidas have invested shite loads into marketing Beckham - they wouldn't want him to go to a club sponsored by Nike (ie, Barcelona....they're practically Nike Espana Inc FFS!).

    He'll probably just end staying after all this :rolleyes:

    Mendieta? I'd be suprised if Barca kept him on seeing that he has been so mediocre all season. He was La Liga's best player in his last season at Valencia, but since his stint with Lazio, he's been rubbish and has been picked on his reputation alone.

    G Force is right, it's not so much the clubs wanting to synthesise players' boots and kit, more the sports companies putting pressure on their players to sign with clubs who under the Nike or Adidas umbrella. After all, Beckham already plays for Man Utd who are a Nike club.

    Having said this I would say that only a few players are commercially valuable enough to warrant this sort of pressure, Beckham and Ronaldo being well-ahead at the top.
  21. Sorry.

    Guardian have published a list of all the players on free transfers.

    Transfer List

    Leicester fans, why is Tim Flowers on the list?
  22. Elpenor

    Elpenor 01/09/02 - 01/10/05

    I was surprised to see Jody Morris on that list.

    Hasn't Flowers retired anyway? :confused:
  23. Sorry.

    Sorry. give it a rest

    don't know, Ipswich are looking for a goalkeeper and I've always rated Flowers ...

    I note Palace have released Kolinko, my brother a Palace fan always used to rate him. Course, he might be shit now
  27. Balbi

    Balbi Hey, Dean Yager!

    Bergers been released on a free.

    Cue Man City.

  28. Rollem

    Rollem two kinds of wonderful

    yes. you could say that. (and yes, that’s good in QPR terms if you wanna put it like that! :p)

    to top it all off, I have heard that cardiff are sniffing round his agent….:rolleyes:

  29. bubblehead

    bubblehead Pokey Pokey Sword

    yeah, but it's unlikely he'll want to go to another second division club......hang on......aren't cardiff in another league now?.........:p
