I think these are the players we should try and get:

Martin Olssen for 4m
Adam Johnson for 10m
Clint Dempsey for 10m
Steven Fletcher for 14m
John Guidetti for 6m

With these players i think we will have a decent lineup :) {Ed024's Note - IF THEY ARE COMING IN - WHO IS GOING OUT ?}

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Outs i think will be:
Titus Bramble for 1m
Kieran Richardson for 4 or 5m
Ahmed Elmohamady for 2m
Maybe Frazier Campbell for 6m
Maybe Conor Wickham on loan {Ed024's Note - I'd be surprised if MON will be in a position to allow both Wickham and Campbell go. I don't see Dempsey coming - think the rumours are more due to our well documented need for goals and the situation Dempsey seems to have gotten himself into at Fulham, still think its 50/50 for Johnson - but as Spurs have Adey I would expect us to get Fletcher}

Agree0 Disagree2

6m for Campbell? Nowhere close at the moment.

Agree1 Disagree0

Personally id be happy with 4 more players coming in. I think we should get Martin Olssen, Adam Johnson, Steven Fletcher and John Guidetti. Id be happy with that and i think it will make a positive improvement to our team. There are also rumours that we could be getting Clint Dempsey and Dimitar Berbatov, if those two came as well id be over the moon. In MON we trust

Believable3 Unbelievable2

Hope fully

Agree0 Disagree0

MON is looking to get spurs double Jermaine Jenas and Danny Rose but i think this may mean sess will be going the other way. Hope not though!!

Believable0 Unbelievable6

They are loan deals nothing to do with sess.

Agree3 Disagree3

They can't be loan deals, clubs can only loan 1 player from the same club at a time.

Agree1 Disagree3

You can loan two we had Beardsley and Evans fom unted at the same time. Fact!

Agree0 Disagree0

AJ to decide tomorrow which club he will join but Liverpool are strong favourites. We will get Downing for 8 million. Fletcher price has been agreed but discussions ongoing for the amount of the initial downpayment and add ons.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Downing seems a spent player these days,lpool have knocked the confidence out of him,will he ever be as good again?

Agree2 Disagree2

Wouldn't pay 8 quid for downing

Agree2 Disagree0

21 Aug 2012 18:13:39
Reports on SSN saying Berbatov can go for £3.5M for that price you must go for him

Believable4 Unbelievable4

21 Aug 2012 17:19:39
Heard from a good source that Frazier Campbell could be on his way out . So mon must have a striker or two lined up

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Good dont rate him

Agree4 Disagree2

Fletcher on his way for 13.75m

Agree2 Disagree0

Not gonna happen..we're short on strikers and need to add more not sell

Agree2 Disagree1

Ed what's happening with johnson can you confirm berba is at sunderlan
{Ed024's Note - Berbatov not at Sunderland. Johnston repotedly talking to interested parties (3 clubs) before making a decision.}

TV are saying only us and Liverpool have made contact over Johnson and that we're the favourites. Safc93

Believable3 Unbelievable2

Tottenham liverpool have both made inquiries but only sunderland made an offer and will be announced as soon as scott sinclair signs for city

Agree3 Disagree1

Nobody has made an offer us and liverpool have made an offical enquiry but spurs only expressed an interest for now. Thats been on sky sports news tonight we are favourits due to local ties and the promise of first team regular football!

Agree0 Disagree2

Well lots of local reports have talks at an advanced stage and the fact we are the only club that has a bid accepted gives me a bit of hope on AJ. Ed, heard anything on a rumour of an unnamed player having a medical today? {Ed024's Note - no not heard anything - if anyone is with the medical team at safc its probably Wes Brown LOL}

Agree2 Disagree0

Agree0 Disagree0

Sunderland have had a bid accepted for Michael Dawson along with QPR and Stoke just been on talksport

Believable7 Unbelievable6

I do you think we will get him or will we not

Agree0 Disagree2

If no one else comes in 90% chance he will sign for us

Agree1 Disagree0

Going to qpr we will never pay that much for a defender when mon has loads on his books

Agree0 Disagree0

Sunderland looking to push through a 5 mill deal for ivan strinic the LB is expected to fly in for talks later this week.

Believable11 Unbelievable7

21 Aug 2012 09:32:40
wonder how many players we will get out of these lot who we have been linked with

Adam Johnson yeah if he gets a wage cut
Tom Huddlestone yeah tottenham will only let him go on loan.
Stephen Fletcher hopefully for no more than 12 mill.
Dimitar Berbatov he will be a great adition especially for just 5mill.
and i think we still need a decent left back
then we are sorted if we get 4 out of 5 of these players.

Believable7 Unbelievable4

None of them

Agree1 Disagree3

We are willing to match anyones wages for johnson

Agree3 Disagree3

21 Aug 2012 09:24:46
reports in sunderland echo state that sunderland will not be beat in their pursuit of aj will to pay the asking price and match his wages which would make him our highest paid player in history. hopefully this is true not because its aj just that hopefully mr short is realising if you want quality more than quantity you have to pay the money. lets wait and see as i have my doubts just hope they proved wrong.

Believable9 Unbelievable1

About the only believable thing in the echo is the date on the front, and I'm sure it's only luck that lets them get that right.

Agree2 Disagree1

On the Liverpool page someone saying lfc have asked us to step away from the aj deal to prevent a bidding war and in return we can have downing , and I thought the mags were deluded {Ed024's Note -It does look like Liverpool are noew favourites for Johnson}

Believable1 Unbelievable5

Point taken ed ,just get on my ti?ús that plp think we could be asked to step away from the deal . IMO Sunderland is just a good of a move than Liverpool all they have is Europa cup and they won't be in that long. {Ed024's Note - The fact we cant offer European football could be telling, that said I'd rather play for MON than BR}

Agree2 Disagree1

If Liverpool have done that its out of order. I can't see MON being bullied into that TBH. Glad to see Mr Short is willing to pay for quality, just hoping and praying we get AJ, he would thrive at the SOL.

Agree5 Disagree0

His agent (dad) may not want him anywhere near Carroll as he could be seen as a bad influence!

Agree4 Disagree1

According to bbc sport we are the only club to bid for johnson spurs and liverpool only enquiry

Agree2 Disagree1

Just been on Sky sports news that SAFC are in pole position for AJ so Liverpool can just dream on don't want Downing anyway.

Agree2 Disagree1

Come on adam son come home and be a legend and sunderland hero.

Agree0 Disagree0

Think we should not bother any more with Fletcher, looks like wolves are being greedy. Johnson would be a good signing. We seem to be linked with a lot of spurs players are they going to make it apart of a bid for Sessegnon? Also linked with blackburn players, what's this about bramble being used has part of a deal? Richardson off to WHUFC or QPR. Elmohamady leaving for Cairo or Hull. In for Guidetti and others. Starting to look like a story line from prison cell block H. All you people on here have got good imaginations. Be patient lads.

Ha'way the Lads.

Ed if you were mon who would you spend the money there is clearly a lot there times running out and I know mon will have more people than what's getting spoke about but every time we make a bid we are just setting the price for other clubs do you think ji and saha could work {Ed024's Note - Ji at best is one for the future - will not feature much this season, Saha is a good squad player and he knows where the net is. If i was MON I'd only go for Fletcher (but not at any cost) and Johnson would be a great signing. I'd also have a look at Holt from Norwich - good in the air and could feed off Maclean and Johnson crosses.

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Holt just signed a new deal with Norwich Ed, so I don't think he's going anywhere for a while. {Ed024's Note - I agree but he's one I would have gone after if I was in MON's shoes, who do you think we should be chasing ?}

Agree1 Disagree0

Sorry to but in on your conversation, but if it was me one of my first signings would have been to try and get Lukaku on loan from chelsea, i think west brom got one over everybody with that one! CC

Agree1 Disagree0

Lukaku signed for the baggies due to chelseas links with Steve Clarke. Pretty simple that.
