Ed can you clear up any rumours about johnson berba or fletcher also what's happening with the young swedish lad a man city and if wolves are after cb give them 20 mil plus titus shambles that's there 15 mil asking price and 5 mil for taken titus everyone happy nothing on spurs page about johnson so figers toes and eyes crossed he joins us {Ed024's Note - My info is that 5 Premier League clubs enquired about Johnson - he turned down two without speaking to them and will speak to the other 3 as I understand those 3 are Liverpool, Tottenham and Sunderland - its now down to him to choose. Berbatov - not hearing much on this - I think its more supporters putting 2 and 2 together - we need a forward and Man Utd need rid of Berbatov. The Fletcher situation is a strange one - the price seems to be going up and up but still we persue him - Spurs may also be interested. Ref Guidetti - as we are talking to Man City about Johnson we may as well mention Guidetti so don't rule this one out. Bottom line is I think we will get Fletcher or Johnson but not both (the other will probably end up at Spurs). Don't see us getting Berbatov - don't think we really want him and I think he wouldn't come to us (Big Head). Guidetti - is a possible but I think he'll stay at Man City}

Ed. sorry but i have to correct you, Johnson has rejected 2 clubs, and liverpool is one of them. Sunderland Spurs and Newcastle are the teams he wants to have a chat with. a chief news reported says so. {Ed024's Note - Hope your right - but I'm not hearing anything from my Newcastle sources. }

I want heskey to sign for us for 20 million...pesos ;)

Believable3 Unbelievable3

If this happens I will come looking for you

Agree5 Disagree0

Spurs in talks with fletcher wolves want huddlestone on loan we are gonna lose out despite offering the asking price.

Agree1 Disagree2

Spurs are welcome to Fletcher - asking price is crazy. They won't but Fletcher and Johnson - does this leave the way clear for Johnson to sign for Sunderland. Much prefer Johnson at 11M than Fletcher for more than 13M.

Agree2 Disagree1

5million for Richo and 4million for Elmo ? id bite there hand off at those prices !

Agree1 Disagree1

That better be sarcasm

Agree0 Disagree0

From an lfc fan. Spurs will never buy a striker like fletcher as they will probably go for a higher class striker like llorente for a similar price.

Agree1 Disagree0

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Your either takin the Micky or you're delusional!

Agree3 Disagree0

You must be off your head. Where in the world would Sunderland get 91million from?! You are really crazy. Stop being so deluded. Doubt Short would want to spend even 30 million. Get over yourself.

Agree2 Disagree0

Elmo not worth 2m let alone 4m. How do you know weve made offers for all those players. Impossible.

Agree2 Disagree0

HAHA like it Ed, Think he did not know which one we where in for so he but them all down. Is it Adam, Michael, Glenn, Roger or Fabian. Or just but them all down.

Agree2 Disagree0

Haha 'Johnson fetish' ...creased

Agree2 Disagree1

Whos f johnson

Agree0 Disagree1

Press and reporters

Agree0 Disagree1

Thats a lot of johnsons ..sounds like a line of the Blazing Saddlles film where all the town were call johnson

Agree1 Disagree0

With 91 million we could sign CRISTIANO RONALDO and with just 16 million we could sign LIONEL MESSI

Agree0 Disagree0

16 million more

Fletch deal agreed with Wolves and AJ to decide by tomorrow which club he will join. If he rejects Sunderland MON will go for Downing.

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Fletcher deal all but done clubs will shake hands tonight 13.75 mil medical tomorrow should sign Wednesday.Think Wickham is going on loan til Xmas as part of the deal.

Agree4 Disagree0

Wolves pulled out of fletcher deal watch this space. In a Manchester hotel just heard a wolves guy phonin sayin deals dead.

Agree0 Disagree3

Sunderland close to signing fletcher SS.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Dont like fletcher but i rather have him than berbatov {Ed024's Note -

Agree2 Disagree2

20 Aug 2012 13:57:39
Just spoke to Adams mam so people stop guessing things sayin he is comin here goin there, he has said that sun, tott,qpr, and west ham have bid for him but no talks have been held yet. The only downfall of us gettin him is the size of the payout he will get by joinin us, but it's not ruled out yet as they haven't yet been in talks.

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Odds have been cut on Johnson to join Spurs. Being in Europe & London will help his England career. It was always a long shot anyway. Defoe not leaving Spurs either. The list is getting smaller now.

Believable5 Unbelievable5

If this is true then this is a huge shame, but we really need to get another striker in and im still not convinced at our defence, even more so now richardson is leaving.


Agree6 Disagree2

Odds were slashed for redknapp to be the England manager but look what happened. Football is unpredictable and not even the bookies are right all of the time. Safc93

Agree5 Disagree0

20 Aug 2012 11:13:40
Apparently Spurs will not be selling Defoe in this transfer window. Strike that one off the list lads.

Believable8 Unbelievable4

20 Aug 2012 10:37:01
Adam Johnson will NOT be joining us. Five clubs have bid, he has turned down at least two. We are NOT one of the clubs turned down thus far however Spurs are leading the chase and can offer a higher level of football than us unfortunately.

Believable8 Unbelievable11

And how do you know this? Has he told you personally?

Agree7 Disagree7

Johnson to Liverpool ?

Agree1 Disagree10

Mate I'm Sunderland die-hard but you must be crazy to think we can match Tottenham.

Agree3 Disagree5

If johnson goes to liverpool or spurs he will get just as little game time for them as he did for man city himself and mancini both said thats why he wants to leave.why would city strengthen a possibe title rival.

Agree4 Disagree1

Match spurs for game time for johnson think we could mange that.

Agree2 Disagree0

Maybe a higher level of football but not week in week out football which is the reason he wants to leave man city in the fist place.

Agree2 Disagree0

Its on

Agree4 Disagree1

20 Aug 2012 10:24:39
Fletcher,johnson,guidetti,dann,olsson players i think will arrive. {Ed024's Note - That's about £35 Millions worth - do you think MON has that amount to spend ? Might get a few quid for Richardson but Short will have to stump up the rest}

Believable6 Unbelievable4

Short said he would back him

Agree4 Disagree3

Short will back him, Cuella ( free), Saha (free), Heskey (free) , wake up lad, Mon has very little to spend.

Agree3 Disagree6

Am i missing somethin 12 for fletcher 10 for johnson are you saying we are only going to bring in one player?

Agree4 Disagree0

When did heskey sign?? and he did say a couple of frees and some quality signings!

Agree1 Disagree2

Mag i think boys
