Dann would be sensible addition- we know that Bramble makes silly mistakes and whatever combination is used at CB it will not be very mobile. But all summer MON has been associated with big target men (Holt, Fletcher, Toivenon) who can play with back to goal and hold up play. This is not Defoe's strength, he is much more like Bent. What formation are we looking to play? {Ed057's Note - i think 4-3-3 especially as we are looking at players like mcgeady and we were at hoilet}

Believable8 Unbelievable0

I think we'll set up more like 4-5-1 with Sess floating between the midfield & forward. {Ed057's Note - Maybe against harder teams but mon likes the quick counter attacks like at villa Ashley young, downing and abonghalhor}

Agree2 Disagree0

Thats ok at villa but we have larsson cattermole gardner wickham ji etc none of whom have any pace to speak of what so ever

Agree4 Disagree0

Ji has lots of pace, we need to give him a go

Agree3 Disagree0

What happened to the link with Saha {Ed057's Note - think he was interested in a move but we weren't!}

Believable8 Unbelievable0

Think we shuda got him for exp up front

Agree2 Disagree4

I have read somewhere today that Mon has identified both Fletcher and Defoe, he is after two top quality signings for upfront? I can't see Defoe coming though I think he is a London boy.

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Played for pompey though.

Agree2 Disagree0

Because harry rednapp took him there as harry had him at west ham aswell.....not coming to safc

Agree2 Disagree1

Jermaine Defoe looks to be our new target he should have been from the beggining we are lucky he hasnt been picked up by someone else he will be the closest we can get to a player like Darren Bent come on MON make it happen.

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Would love to see some of the rumours turn to reality, Defoe, Milner, McGeady etc Would certainly add something to the lads. Who knows Defoe and whickam (new SKP and quinny!)

Agree7 Disagree1

One small issue......he does not want to come to sunderland.

Agree8 Disagree7

Be hard to lure him up here lyk

Agree3 Disagree3

With the pathetic wages we can offer compared to qpr. QPR FFS. can offer better wages than us . PATHETIC

Agree0 Disagree2

Qpr owners have more money than short thats why......and qpr are near london...who we near most of our players live at newcastle and drink there.

Agree3 Disagree0

Wrong qpr owners are prepared to offer more.

Agree1 Disagree0

Prepared to offer more.. BECAUSE THEY HAVE MORE MONEY..

Agree0 Disagree0

They are not allowed to spend their "MORE MONEY" under the new rules. they just know you have to pay good wages to attract good players FACT {Ed001's Note - not fact at all, try spending a few hours on the UEFA site reading the FFP rules, then you will realise you are wrong mate. You have numerous areas that can be funded entirely by outside investment, that enables clubs with a sugar daddy to save decent sums which can be used to acquire and pay players. Though I am still not entirely convinced that the FFP ruling will have any real effect.}

Sky sports reckon we're on the verge of making bids for Defoe, Mcgeady and Scott Danny. Why were we ever getting worried?

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Defoe will never come up here so why do we always linked to him .

Agree6 Disagree6

Defo will not come here

Agree7 Disagree4

Pretty sure sky only mentioned Scott dann, I certainly hope you're right though

Agree4 Disagree1

Because he wont buy any of them,we are going to buy crap cos mon only likes british players with no technical ability,now we want scott dann!we need strikers now,we have more defenders on the books than the midfield and forwards put together.west ham have just bought diarra yes diarra for next to nowt,even newly promoted sides r buying better than us,im dreading this season....

Agree5 Disagree3

Any one will go any were for the right money

Agree4 Disagree1

Tottenahm have only only 2 senior striker so can not see them leaving. And if Defoe did leave he would go not QPR.

Agree2 Disagree1

Be great if MON could get Defoe would definatley show there intent for quality signings positive thinking everyone.

Agree3 Disagree1

To the absolute person that said MoN only likes Brittish players and that he won't sign Defoe, McGeady and Dann... Defoe is Enlish, McGeady is Scottish and Dann is also English. Last time I checked they were all brits... also, Diarra isn't Lassana Diarra... it's Alou Diarra.

Agree5 Disagree0

You're wrong though because McGeady is from the Republic of Ireland, which last time I checked wasn't part of Britain. Just saying.

Agree4 Disagree4

Skysports mentioned it on the transfer Watchclock.

Agree2 Disagree0

Mcgeady was born in Scotland but plays for the Republic of Ireland.


Agree2 Disagree0

Mcgeady is a scot fact, just another plastic Irish payer like Aldridge and co from the 90's

Agree1 Disagree0

Mcgeady average anyway. hasnt done anything in russia or for ireland. looked decent in celtic team but so did murphy and stokes. yikes. need a reality check folks. no good mentioning good players like llorente and defoe etc when we will only offer around 50k a week. wont attract anybody with those wages

Agree3 Disagree0

YOUR RIGHT anyone can go any where for right money.....problem is safc have a wage cap which is probably half his wages at spurs...

Agree1 Disagree0

Defoe could be an option for oneill reports in the echo,hear wolves want close to 20 mill for fletcher comparing him to bent INSANE leave well alone now other options Tiovonon or even gettin Jonesy back.

Believable7 Unbelievable2

I totally agree 12 million is over the top never mind 20. We dont want to do what Liverpool did and spent too much on average players ie. Jordan Henderson

Take a risk on Jordan Rhodes Huddersfield 6 million anyone who scores that many goals in a season will score in any league given the service

Agree8 Disagree2

Wolves asking for 15-20mill for fletcher,ur havin a laugh,fletcher now says he will play in the reserves to get a move,hope wolves board get sod all now greedy b******s,when bent and gyan wanted to jump ship we let them go immediately,hope they dont get an offer now.tk73

Agree7 Disagree2

Agreed,20 mill too much,that money would buy 2 decent strikers,including the ones you mention.

Agree7 Disagree1

Lukaku is going to west brom fact but we need somebody quick or it's going to be another long season

Agree3 Disagree2

We will get Fletcher for 5 million at Xmas he's a Muppet that moxley , fancy trying to keep players who don't want to play for you

Agree6 Disagree1

20 million for fletch that ludicrous, I felt sick when I heard 12 mill being banded about. Time to leave him now let them keep a player who wants to leave its embarrassing . Wickham, noble, Wong and Campbell that will do up front .

Agree1 Disagree3

20 mill are wolves actually jokin! wtf is going on in there head they shud b prepared to let him go for a lil less than b4 when he handed in a transfer request can garentee hel leave in jan for bout 7mil max

Agree0 Disagree0

mcgeady fletcher and lukaku chelsea loan are the players coming sounds good to me

Believable5 Unbelievable3

Only want loan players if we have the buy option at the end of the loan

Agree0 Disagree0

We have 3 inexperienced strikers at the club so why loan in another?lukaku looked good in belgium but hes hardley kicked a ball since he went to chelsea. need somebody with experience

Agree1 Disagree0

09 Aug 2012 20:46:24
ed on the chelsea page thinks that we could be one of the teams in for lukaku would be a good signing have you heard anything ed {Ed001's Note - no sorry, but I have been a bit busy the last few days and not keeping on top of all the info and ongoings. I am sure it would have been mentioned on our widget if I had been around, as that is where us editors share info with each other.}
