I know this is a rumours page but i wish everyone would calm down and have faith in MON. The man is a WORLD CLASS manager and players will come here and play for HIM be patient and when we sign players that are being bantered about on here and better ones that we know nothing about then we can stick it up the mags that come on here and dirty our page,rant over,season starts have faith in MON but dont want Fletcher for more than £10mil.Good luck for the season boys {Ed057's Note - couldn't agree more wish their we're more fans like you big Zach mac

Believable7 Unbelievable4

World Class manager? Whats he ever done apart from win a few pots in the Scottish Sunday League? Give your little head a shake son!!!

Agree3 Disagree5

He won things at Celtic had Leicester constantly in top half of premier league as well as league cup victorys at wembly and villa top 6 for 3 seasons apart from Celtic those other 2 teams have done nothing since he left his cv is a dam site better than pardew one good season and all the mags hated him this time last year how fickle the mags can be

Believable11 Unbelievable9

Agree5 Disagree1

Mon told ssn more players will sign in the next 10 days.safc93

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Yes but,WHO ARE THEY???

Agree5 Disagree4

Emile Heskey and any other washed up old player to go with saha and cueller.

Agree2 Disagree8

MoN won't say who they are so other clubs won't decide to step in. Tactics.

Agree6 Disagree0

I think the simple answer is, to the who are they? squad, we have a well respected manager and international player who got to quarter finals of world cup with NI, won league as a player 2 european cups, played under clough, knows how to spot a player that wont make the back page on transfer day, but will be buy of the season, mon will not want loan deals he will want agreed price at end of loan, the player will have decide if money is more than regular football,as he has earnt more in last year than his career, so if not willing to come for less and play week in week out, mon will not sign, the club will not loan to clubs who are in europe, they will to a club who cant affect them but will take points of others, martin oneil got celtic to a uefa final not long ago,and thats a scottish team that play crap week in week out, and still made it to a final with players who arent as good as safc, man utd ,man city,tottenham, all with strong teams could not get to uefa cup final, simple fact tactics, very little change in squad, and youth players brought through ranks,has achieved at every level as a manager,wycombe,Leicster,celtic villa, with no big spending, he took over villa and kept them up then 3 top 6 finishes,spent money but villa made 60-70 million back off milner,downing and young. he came to safc knowing he had to work with little money after bruce and keane, and get the best he could in a short time,to enable consolidation, he wont buy for the sake of it, as its false economy. so give him a chance as his C.V. speaks for itself, mancini 2 1/2 years 500 million, plus 500 million in wages, Ill be happy with 2 players a year and a couple of free transfers, rather than 6 players released on top wages.

Agree1 Disagree0

How do we know MON came here with little or no money to spend? Maybe he had a brief to get rid of some players first , which is good buisiness. I honestly feel MON could ask for anyone he wants from the board if the right players came along. Tony SAFC

Believable0 Unbelievable14


Agree8 Disagree3

West ham may come in for rico after being baulked on jarvis bids, hope not tho

Agree7 Disagree2

Huddlestone is still injured ! He can't be moving, would fail medical !

Agree6 Disagree0

HOW did Saha pass a medical? Been injured for last 5 years.

Agree1 Disagree6

Sessegeon is going no where this season and why is everyone being negative towards Saha he will get the job done (princ£y)

Agree5 Disagree0

Sunderland have made an offer to Manchester City for England winger Adam Johnson.

Believable16 Unbelievable2

Cuellar & Saha already in, if we were to get Johnson on loan and then buy Guidetta & Cissoko id be happy with that transfer activity...possibly nzonzi if we can afford

Agree13 Disagree0

I'd like that and a recognised left back

Agree11 Disagree1

Cissoko is a lefy back

Agree8 Disagree2

Please Mr Short push the boat out get these players plus fletcher and watch us go up that table,

Agree5 Disagree0

Heard from a source at club that we are in negotiations with cisshoko?.

Believable11 Unbelievable2

Is this Ali Cissoko the left back who plays for lyonnais...if so absolute class left back... C'Mon Oneil get him and guidetta bagged

Agree11 Disagree1

Yea I heard this aswell and it is the left back

Agree7 Disagree0

It is I seen this on another site. Safc93

Agree4 Disagree1

Chairman of lyon has said only two clubs in for cissoko everton n valencia.

Agree3 Disagree5

Yeah im sure we have the 15 million plus euros lying around that we need to buy him

Agree3 Disagree1

Sunderland are every bit as attractive as Everton are to this player if rumour true....I think both clubs would struggle to compete against Valencia althought the lure of the prem could work although i think he would be away from both clubs within two seasons to the top 4

Agree2 Disagree1

Hes not over 30 and he didn't play for Man United... not going to sign.

Agree4 Disagree2

Only barca and the 2 madrid clubs and malaga can compete with the premier league regarding wages, he won't go to valencia

Agree0 Disagree0

Sunderland are bigger richer more well know club than everton

Agree4 Disagree2

Ask yourself how much everton paid for felianni and it was more than you have ever spent on a player.

Agree0 Disagree0

Ask yourself how much everton paid for felianni and it was more than you have ever spent on a player.


support everton do you?

and it was 15 million but i had to look that up seeing as im not obsessed with other clubs

Agree0 Disagree0

Rumour we have been given green light by Man City to talk to John Guidetti. Just watched his goals on loan in Dutch league last season. Yes please!

Believable9 Unbelievable2

If we get guidetta for the reported £6 million man city want this would be a great piece of business by messiah o'neill... the boy is class, my family is from sweeden and I saw him 5-6 yrs ago at under 18 game and u could tell he was miles ahead at that age.....C'mon Sunderland get him and give us something to be excited about
