Funny thing is every forward we have been linked with Bar one none are over 25 years old. And I mean Linked we won't get Insigne for example.

Hernandez - 22
Dost - 23
Leandro - 19
Rossi - 24
Aubameyang - 23
Zarate - 25
Insigne - 19
Figabogson - 23
Hooper - 24

I can't see Sunderland ever buying anyone over 25 again. Buy them young on the cheap sell them on at a profit. And if Sunderland can maintain top flight football doing this then the club will always make a profit and never really spend any money on players. Makes sense with the new fair play rules.


Believable2 Unbelievable4

Paulinho 27
hooper 25
insigne 22
fina 24
leandro 28
rossi 26
dost 24

Agree5 Disagree3

The first post has more ages wrong than right. Which is a bit of an issue when your entire point is about age. Embarrassing.

Agree1 Disagree0

Leandro we are intrested in is 19 not 28

Agree1 Disagree0

You've got the wrong Leandro mate.
Hernandez - 22
Dost - 24
Leandro - 19
Rossi - 25
Aubameyang - 23
Zarate - 25
Insigne - 21
Finnbogason - 24
Hooper - 25

These are all correct.

Agree5 Disagree0

We're linked with Kevin Davis {Ed024's Note - This is an old rumour}

Agree1 Disagree1

I last heard the Kevin Davais rumour like 3 days ago

Agree1 Disagree1

Kevin Davies rumour is from when O'Neil was in charge

Zoet looks set for a move to Sunderland this week. If Liverpool can't agree a fee with Sunderland for mignolet then Westwood will be leaving to gain first team football. Either way we are loosing a keeper and Zoet is coming into the side.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

Be suprised if MIGS is staying as according to his agent he's pushing for him to move saying many other clubs are interested!

GK- Westwood
RB- Cavanda/2m-4.5m
CB- Diakite
CB- O'Shea
LB- Orban/4m-6.5m
CM- N'Daiye or Cattermole
CM- Duncan/8m-9.5m
RM- Johnson
LM- Zarate/free
ST- Fletcher
ST- dunno/13m-15m

TOTAL SPENT = around 30million

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Is dunno a Brazilian

Agree2 Disagree0

People keep putting Cattermole in their squad predictions and I have to wonder, why?
He isn't good enough for what we are aiming for, he will be suspended more that any other player next season and can't have a decent crack on goal. Never really rated him. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I highly doubt it. N'diaye is way better in my opinion.


Agree2 Disagree4

Totally agree with that.

Agree1 Disagree1

For some reason Cattermole gets a lot of support from people and for what, being a poor aggressive tackler. Overrated and a liability, N'diaye everyday.

Agree3 Disagree0

Cattermole is good, he isn't in the squad to score goals, his job is to break up the play and help us get further up the pitch, which he does extremely well

Yes, his suspensions are a bit of an issue, but with Di Canio's strictness he will sort that out in a second
Results are proven to be better when Cattermole is on the pitch, he will play a vital role for the club if the want to progress in the league

Agree1 Disagree0

4th post

Who are you agreeing with, original post or the bitc*hing about Catts

Agree0 Disagree1

All you need to do is look at the win ratio with Catts in the side compared to out of it! It's a no brainer that we are a better side with him. Yes he's a loose canon at times but hopefully PDC won't be like Bruce and MON and tip toe aroun the issue!

Agree1 Disagree0

Catts is an excellent player on his day and certainly plays his heart out for the team. However, I feel N'diaye offers more physicality, more attacking threat, has greater potential to develop and won't be injured or suspended 90% of the time.

Agree1 Disagree0

got this on good word ross turnbull was due to sign for everton deal agreed until moyes went to Manchester United moyes shook his hand and apologised, ross agent has spoke to sunderland and hull but it looks like he could be signing for Norwich as ross reckons that ruddy is going to villa

Believable1 Unbelievable3

God that was like a delia smith speech. Pointless and annoying.

Agree4 Disagree0

Its come from the horses mouth as they say why would the lad lie
not like some of the s**** getting put on here some of the posts regarding players supposedly signing for us are making some sunderland fans more deluded than the daft lads from the toon

Ed: Do you Ed's still have group meetings at the Mountain Daisy or was that a one off? {Ed024's Note - Think you might have mixed us up with another group ?}

Believable1 Unbelievable3

17 Jun 2013 21:17:12
I know we already have
Diakite, O'Shea, Roberge, Brown, Cueller as centre halfs but does anyone think we could do with another solid centre back who isn't completely useless

Believable5 Unbelievable4

Is it just me or is there a faint whiff of the Tyne in this post, anyone decsribing John O'shea as useless has no idea about football. Sounds like Tyneside 2d football thinking to me!

Agree3 Disagree1

Is that a silly post by a mag {Ed024's Note - I think they may be trying to divert attention from any talk of Directors of Football }

Agree3 Disagree1

Cabral the new signing can play at CB and so can Ndiaye

Agree3 Disagree2

I Think Roberge will be the suprise signing that will do well!

There's a lot of rumour about Duncan, I have no idea what he is like, can someone please do me a favour and answer these questions for me

•what position does he play?
•How old?
•More of an attacker or a defender?
•characteristics, e. g, strong and good tackler, small and creative?
•is he a goal scorer?
•Will he get first team?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

In order
tall and strong
more of a holding mid so expect a goal once in a while
9million euros
hes a bit like a tall version of cabral

Agree0 Disagree0

Cheers mate

Agree0 Disagree0

They say the transfer could be complicated so a loan deal may be the only option for us!. i'd take that!

Agree0 Disagree2

From Youtube it seemed he is strong, holding midfielder, likes long shots, nice passer, seems confident. still young but looks promising. he's movement reminded Diakite. like an elephant but get's the job done. he had some nice speed though when had a chance to go forward. looks like a good youngster for the future of our midfield or good business in 2-3 years time.

Sunderland are now linked to sign Leandro from brazil he
Has spent the last two seasons on loan and Sunderland are keen to sign the forward from Al-Sadd.

Believable4 Unbelievable2

Lack of goals was one of our main problems last season

We need to get good forwards who are experienced in top leagues, not players like him

Agree4 Disagree0

Don't worry about experience, I'm looking forward to going in with the element of surprise. I'm almost disappointed when I've heard of one of our targets, more exciting when they are totally unknown.

Agree4 Disagree1

More info on Leandro he is 19 years old from brazil. He scored 20goals in 30 games last season. He has lots of pace and skill. Not very tall at 5. 10 but does have an eye for goal and a nack of been in the right place at the right time. Don't think he would be in the starting team maby one for the future.

Agree2 Disagree0

17 Jun 2013 20:13:51
Anyone know any decent attacking Mids who can replace Sess if he leaves

Believable1 Unbelievable0

I would like us to go for Wolfsburg's playmaker Diego

Agree5 Disagree2

Diego your aiming abit high

Agree1 Disagree1

17 Jun 2013 19:24:32




Believable2 Unbelievable1

Write him off at your peril because N'Diaye's going to have a big season next year so I wouldn't expect that to be central midfield. Those that went to the game will have seen the biggest transformation ever known in a player once Di Canio took over.

Agree5 Disagree2

Love to sign duncan he's a big strong boy

Agree3 Disagree1


Agree0 Disagree0

No need to say sorry mate, I just know press have suggested he was poor last season and very little recognition of his massive improvement but would those who see the full 90 agree that N'Diaye has huge potential? What about your thoughts Ed? {Ed024's Note - I think he was off the pace for a could of games but showed enough after those games to suggest he will do well.}

Agree4 Disagree1

He did not look to clever at the Villa game

Agree0 Disagree0

No one looked clever in the Villa game so that's invalid

Everything so far on the Mignolet situation is just pure paper talk

Mignolet's agent has said there hasn't been any offers at all from any clubs for him

Ed, sky are reporting an unnamed premier league club have bid £8 million for Udinese striker matej vydra who was on loan at Watford last season. Have you heard anything to suggest that might be us? {Ed024's Note - No not heard anything - is more likely to be one of the promoted sides.}

Youve got to love mike ashleys humour
we sign one of the top scouts in europe and they sign joe kinnear might as well be roy kinnear.
Cant wait to see who he's after.
We might have got the hoppings but the real circus is still at sid james park.
What a carry on.

Looks like mignolet is off to Liverpool this week in a 10mil move. Sunderland are currently in talks to sign the 22 year old keeper Jeroen Zoet from PSV. He has been out on loan the last two seasons and only has 1 year left on his contract with PSV keen to cash in on the player to prevent him for going for free next year. Would expect Jeroen Zoet to sign pretty quick after the mignolet deal so Di Canio can take two keepers to his training camp in Italy.

Ed dunno if this is to spark up interest but apparantly sunderland are interested in scott parker, just wondering if there's anything happening with him? {Ed024's Note - I cant see much in this - he doesn't fit the profile in f the players we are after.}

Believable2 Unbelievable7

Parker was home sick at newcastle years ago. So now he's ready for the retirement home, he'll want to be near his family

Hi all, I'm a Liverpool fan and I was just wondering what your keeper is like I don't know much about him if he were to join us would he be a good signing? Please don't slate me for asking! {Ed024's Note - He's top notch my red friend - a little lacking in physical presence which can hinder him coming for crosses but other than that he 'll do a good job - what's happening to Reina?}

Believable6 Unbelievable0

His weakneses are his crossing and at times kicking good shot stopper uses his legs a lot!

Agree4 Disagree0

Apparently Liverpool have offered £7 million we want £10. feel we shudnt take less than £9 million. Westwood is going to be given a chance. and IMO he's not that far behind MIGS in ability!. remember that save Westwood made against was it Manchester United couple seasons ago?. brilliant!

Agree5 Disagree2

Of the shots at Mig, he punched 90% of the them straight back out. Flapped at crosses. £10 million, yes please

Agree2 Disagree5

U are getting a Brilliant GK

type in Diogo viana a on Google and it says exactly this:

Diogo Felipe guerreirro via a is a Portuguese professional footballer who plays for Sunderland as a right winger.

Try it. Are you getting the same? {Ed024's Note - That's off wikipedia - anyone can change wikipedia - do not trust it as a reliable source}

Believable4 Unbelievable1

(Ed)Don't trust wiki as a reliable source.
No sh** Sherlock, Ed (giraffe)the neck on you. Come on Ed, what makes you a reliable source, all you say is maybe or yes after the event, has mig been sold to LFC and who is your source. {Ed024's Note - The angry man is back - no not yet as he is on holiday in Caribbean its unlikely any deal will be finalised until he gets back. My source for that one is Thomas Cook}

Agree2 Disagree3

A remember last season llorente from bilbao's team was changed to sunderland and people were going mad thinkin we had signed him and it was just a hoax haha

Agree3 Disagree0

Whats with all the hatred for the ed? he is only doing his job and giving his opinion and no-one is forcing you to believe what he says. safc93

Agree10 Disagree1

I only belive stuff when the player wears a red and white shirt otherwise well all be beileving Elvis plays for Accrington Stanley!

Agree3 Disagree0

What, you mean Elvis doesn't play for Accrington Stanley, Oh! i'm upset now cause I thought he did. i'm sure he was a striker and he got opposing defenders "ALL SHOOK UP", Aha-har.

Agree1 Disagree2

17 Jun 2013 15:54:33
