Sunderland are trying to sign Yossi Benayoun. Wages may be the stumbling block.

Believable9 Unbelievable5

Another non starter lol , but I have to say think this would be a cracking deal if it is true

Agree7 Disagree1

Wont take wages of 50k a week

Agree4 Disagree0

Yes, we really need another player whose age is a higher than the number of games he manages in a season- going on 33, played less than 30 games over past two years...... maybe we could Scholes and Heskey as well?

Agree3 Disagree2

Hes on 55k week

Agree2 Disagree0

Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit my friend but maybe your happy for the team to stay the way it is

Agree1 Disagree1

Don;t really think Scholes was the best name to back your comment up with. Irrespective of age he would walk into any team in the EPL

Agree1 Disagree0

He doesn't fit O'neils style..

Agree1 Disagree0

Walk is about right. Presumably you see no difference between making occasional cameo appearances in one the strongest teams in the PL and being the driving force for 40 games a season in the present Sunderland team. Maybe you think Giggs is worth signing for the odd appearance too? I suppose if we have enough ex-United geriatrics at least one of them might be fit most weeks- that's where Bruce went wrong, he didn't sign them all!

Agree0 Disagree0

Who said anything about 40 games, driving force or anything else. Certainly never said either Benayoun or Scholes would be worth signing.I was merely pointing out that you could hardly put Scholes in the same bracket as the other players metioned.Never suggested signing any ex man u players. I don't think Benayoun is the right option for us. At the same time you do need players in the squad who don't play 40 games a season-otherwise you don't have a squad. I'm sure everyone agrees that Bruce's transfer policy was his downfall. I mean who wants Sess, McClean, Larsson, Mignolet etc.

Sunderland are poised to win the race for the loan signature of Manchester City striker John Guidetti, according to a report in Italy.

Black Cats boss Martin O’Neill is desperate to strengthen his attack at the Stadium of Light this summer and has already been linked with a swoop for the young Swedish forward, who has already been likened to his fellow international compatriot Zlatan Ibrahimovic, earlier in the transfer window.


Believable7 Unbelievable3

Hope its right the boy looks class, he's the only name iv been getting excited about

Agree3 Disagree0

I have just read the report on Guidetti and it says that the deal is in danger as his failure to get over the virus may destroy any possible deal. So how does it look like we may win the race to sign him? If he can't get over a virus, will there be other teams wanting him? Not such a credible post?

Agree2 Disagree0

The mags are tying a deal up now for anita for 6.2mill,and r putting bid in for toivenon,wot the hell is going on oneill,good players relativaly cheap,why are we not trying for these players....tk73

Agree3 Disagree2

6 days to go til new season starts need some gud signings to cum from somewhere but don't think we will get anyone in before the start of season

Agree4 Disagree0

Well nothing new on here all doom and gloom what a load of s*** support your team and be quiet SUNDERLAND !!!! ALWAYS

Agree7 Disagree4

Mate u ain't all there this post is bulls£:t for so many reasons I reckon we haven't even got half of that to spend

Agree7 Disagree2

And on planet earth

Agree7 Disagree1

Biggest load of rubbish i have ever seen although i would love this to happen with owen not on that list

Agree7 Disagree1

Dont know how old you are but keep playing football manager. that list is beyond rediculous.
defoe wont come to north east for 50k a week,neither will fucile huddlestone johnson milner. berbatov past it as is owen(injury prone and more interested in horses) hangaland why another center half when we have NO experienced strikers. wake up and be realistic. sunderland are an average mid table team who will only offer average mid table wages. also we are stuck right up in the north away from everything. why would any decent player want to come here for crap wages

Agree4 Disagree3

Won't get 5 million for Rico. Shouldn't sell anyway. Ji won't go for 3 miillion either. Defoe won't leave London. Berbatov has never heard of Sunderland. Should keep David Vaughan. Apart from that?

Agree4 Disagree3

Then you woke up ha! Never going to happen mate...

Agree3 Disagree2

Have you woken up now.........£55 johnson-no milner-no berbatov-no defoe.....thats fact

Agree2 Disagree2

Absolutely PRICELESS ha ha ha ha ha, i love it. D-E-L-U-D-E-D

Agree2 Disagree2

Listen I'm a big Sunderland fan and safc do not have 55million to spend more like 25million

Agree1 Disagree2

Weve got a right jackanory on this site,non of these players would even come here on a weekend at seaburn,i really dont think mons got 15mill to spend never mind 55mill,we will have maybe 1 player in by the arsenal game and i bet hes another defender,we best get used to 1-0 defeats for the rest of the year cos the strikers weve got couldnt score for ryhope cw(no disrespect intended)tk73

Agree2 Disagree1

Are you cuckoo lad

Agree0 Disagree1

One of the most ridicuclous things ive ever read and you call newcastle fans deluded

Agree0 Disagree1

I am also a huge SAFC fan, any of those players would be amazing! yet, Why on Earth would they want to join Sunderland? Mid table squad that are aiming for Champions league players?! Get over yourself. Think you have a crayon stuck in your brain!

Agree0 Disagree0

Feckin hell 55mil to spend a reckon ellis short wud slash out a bit but not 55 mill mayb 30 max and half of them will never join us 3mill for jiii highly doubt that mate

Agree0 Disagree0

A geordies post really reeled yous in, i carnt see a mackem posting a transfer list thats so unlikely. MON wants to pull his finger out though cos we need some scorers. Id rather MON took his time and bought well ...rather than keane/bruce panic buying crap but we needed a few positive early signings to help sell the season tickets/lads buying new shirts with new players names etc

Agree1 Disagree1

Early signings? The window has been open for 11-12 weeks only 2weeks of it left. Cant see any players of quality(which mon promised us) coming in. Long season ahead

Agree2 Disagree0

Wish that could happen...
