Heard of various sources that clint Dempsey is due for a medical tomorrow and could be signed in time to face morcambe aslo we are now odds on to sign Defoe but I don't think the deal will pull through I'll be happy with just clint Dempsey on board (princ£y)

Believable8 Unbelievable4

This Dempsey story has same strength as when johnson rumours were going around. All seem to be from the same source. What a player Dempsey is.

Agree7 Disagree1

So would i signing defoe could mean sess going to spurs which to me is unthinkable

Agree6 Disagree1

Would never get rid of sess, superb player and very hard to replace.

Agree10 Disagree3

Sess got unfinished business with the sunderland

Agree4 Disagree0

What source is it

jermain defoe is now 1/2 to join cats with sky bet also clint demsey now 1/3-chris

{Ed024's Note - If we get them both will we lose Sess to offset the cost ?}

Believable8 Unbelievable1

Sess best player we have had in years if it meant letting him go for defoe i would be absolutely gutted-chris

Agree7 Disagree2

Don't think I would mind Sess leaving as much if we had Dempsey and Defoe.

Agree7 Disagree5

I said earlier, Sess is away on Thursday. Heard this at 4.30pm this afternoon from a source within the club. But if we get defoe and dempsey i would be over the moon

Agree3 Disagree4

Could have torres and rvp up front but we still wont score goals without a midfielder who can can actually play football-chris

Agree2 Disagree4

Is the Clint Dempsey rumour genuine, if so I do sadly think we could be losing Sess

Agree2 Disagree3

As much as I love Sess, I can't help but feel that we'd be better off with dempsey and defoe instead

Agree4 Disagree3

I for one really do not want defoe, if he comes it wont be because he!! wants to come it will be decided by the spurs board, and he woudnt settle up here to far away from the bright lights of london.

Agree3 Disagree0

We're getting Dempsey for 8 million and I don't want Defoe if sess is goin to spurs

Agree4 Disagree0

If we were so close to signing Dempsey like you all seem to think, do you not think it likely that either skysports or bbc sport would have reported it by now?

Agree0 Disagree1

26 Aug 2012 22:43:00
odds now 1/3 for dempsey to sign,,,,,no smoke without fire,,,,source sky bet

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Same for defoe, shaking with exitement

Hiya ed, heard any news on sess? Really hoping he doesn't leave, and any news on Dempsey or Dawson ?
MB {Ed057's Note - Sess is staying unless something silly happens but AVB criticised him at Chelsea so don't think that will happen and Dempsey 70% chance I would say and Dawson 10% chance. I think we will sign one more though

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Love the nickname for AVB like the 'meerkat' haha and did he really, what did he say about him ? Mb {Ed057's Note - Lmao and a reporter asked him when he was at Chelsea will he sign sess and he said something along the lines of he's a too ball greedy and dosent pass often enough.

Agree0 Disagree3

Dawson will have a medical at academy on Tuesday. Info from my reliable friend very close to club. He also said sessegnon will be sold Thursday but didnt say which club but that a major signing will be made to replace him.

Believable3 Unbelievable6

According to ssn his move to qpr is back on

Agree1 Disagree5

Dawson to injury prone and9mill is too much 4 him.tk73

Agree2 Disagree2

26 Aug 2012 20:24:29
Just heard that Steve Bruce has but an offer on the table for Ahmed Elmohamady and Titus Bramble. Given up on other players has want to stay at the club.

Also been told that Sessegnon is not leaving the club, no offers have been made.
Said just Skunks trying to upset use lads.

Campbell is staying.

Richardson off to WHU.

We are not in for Dempsey.

Walcott is heading to Juve, The one more signing Wenger was talking about is Sess to Arsenal. (Rumour has it this was set up as part of the Bendtner deal quite a while back) Liverpool are making a move for Dawson as Man City are going to grab Agger (They wanted him to serve out one of his game bans before coming)

MON got Fletcher in because he wants to recruit Scottish players, The extra money he paid to get Fletcher is part of his plan to attract Charlie Adam.

Adam Johnson is going to be played as a right wing back in a new formation shuffle.

Whickham is going to be sold (asap) and replaced with Rhodes. {Ed024's Note - why a Scottish recruitment drive ? }

Believable2 Unbelievable16

Never heard so much crap in my life, why would we have a Scottish recruitment drive when we can clearly see they have 2 good players in their whole national team, not including fletcher,

Agree9 Disagree0

Think hes been on the scotch

Agree10 Disagree0

26 Aug 2012 18:46:13
An extremely good source of mine has informed me there will be one more BIG signing next week.

Not sure on the outs though.

Believable7 Unbelievable0

Window shuts this week not next

Agree0 Disagree0

Possible first team after deadline day?




Believable5 Unbelievable5

Bardsley O'Shea Cuellar ollson
Larsson cattermole/colback mcclean
Johnson Fletcher sees

That's what im hoping for anyway, thinking that could be one of our better teams. Can't wait for Liverpool match! So excited im like a kid at crimbo! Thank you MON and Ellis!!
Ps. Any word on that caminata lad ed? Cheers

Agree1 Disagree3

AGAIN.... why are you not putting Gardner on that list? He should start. Solid midfielder works like an engine. Definite in my starting XI...

Agree1 Disagree0

Exactly gardener has awesome work ethic if no lb comes in he possibly be rb with bards going lb when fit if not then in the middle instead of colback. Yt?

Agree2 Disagree0

bardsley o'shea cuellar?
johnson sessegnon mcclean
fletcher. ?
2 players still req LB CF

Agree0 Disagree0

Next week. Anderson Man Utd loan or Henderson Liverpool Loan. Rose Loan Spurs. Dawson Spurs 5 million to us, plus Sess going other way. Defoe or Dempsey for 10 million. If Dempsey then Rico & Campbell to Fulham & 5 million for Dempsey. Other outs, Bramble to Blackburn 1 million, Whickham to Blackburn loan. Vaughan to Swansea 2 million.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

Why would we bid 5 mil plus Sess for Dawson? Not a chance. Sess is worth at least 15 million.

Agree9 Disagree0

You`re an absolute baffoon, if you think this will happen.

Agree4 Disagree0

You've just made all that up totally pointless

Agree4 Disagree0

He is saying dawson plus 5m for sess. Still not worth it in my opinion

Agree2 Disagree0

26 Aug 2012 15:07:35
Bramble and Elmo out next week to hull

Richardson west ham 2 mill
Campbell could also leave

Couple of other will go out to championship when window reopens in sept

Another couple ( maybe 3 ) in next week - 2 loans plus one more established premier player

Believable7 Unbelievable2

Funny that mon says nobody leaving

Agree0 Disagree1

Mon already said richardson leaving.

Believable5 Unbelievable3

I hear he could be available for as little as 3 million Galatasaray,Zenit and Fiorentina interested.

Agree4 Disagree1

Every time he plays he seems to score so would like to see him at the sol for a season or two but would like guidetti better.finally would just like to say I am absolutely delighted with the signing of adam Johnson.well done mon

Agree7 Disagree1

No..1st hes rubbish 2nd He wouldnt want to come to us

Agree1 Disagree5

Berba's already going to Fiorentina

Agree0 Disagree4

Why would he not want to come to us? Sick of all these supposed supporters who do nothing but try and down grade their own team...hang your heads in shame!!!!!!!!

Agree5 Disagree1

If you ask any footballer, The north-east would be the last place they would go unless on good wages. On not bothered about where they play. The North-East is a poor run down forgotten area of the Uk

Agree2 Disagree5

You obviously have never left you little hovel in you life if thats what you think the north east is like, i have travelled for work to most places in the UK and abroad and nothing beats the northeast!!

Agree5 Disagree1

The north east has it's bad point but there are some lovely area's around to live in

Dawson in O'Neill's sights as Sunderland boss plans to continue spending spree

Believable6 Unbelievable3

Sometimes can be good player but makes to many mistakes I think

Agree3 Disagree0

We don't need another center back.

Agree5 Disagree2

Another oap.

Agree4 Disagree4

Would love to see Dawson here but cant see the point in spending 9 million on a CH we dont need.

Agree4 Disagree1

No chance

Agree3 Disagree1

Oap?? he is 28!

Agree2 Disagree0

OAP? the lad is only 28

Agree2 Disagree0

Oap ? Do u know anything about football

Agree3 Disagree0

Bramble and Kilgallon could both go.
I think we are still interested in signing better quality centre back.


Agree1 Disagree0

Anyone got a source for the clint dempsy rumours. I dont think he would come to us but if he did he would definitely give us a huge boost. Safc93

Believable9 Unbelievable1

Why wouldn't he play for us, he plays for a small club with a tin pot ground, we've got a large brand new stadium top of the range facilitys top manager and some top players

Agree8 Disagree1

Have heard rumours but don't think that they are true

Agree5 Disagree0

Exactly would love to see him at the sol.

Agree5 Disagree0

He wants European football otherwise he'd stay at Fulham, end of story

Agree1 Disagree2

Rumours are true,Dempsey will sign Monday or Tuesday.Dawson also expected at SOL for talks on Tuesday.Left back to sign also and enquiries about Anderson have been made.Source is from people at the club.All the info has now been found out by sports journalist and is doing the rounds now on Twitter

Agree3 Disagree0

Is it Heskey - Only Joking ! Hope it's another striker, still think we are short up front.

We have offers in for:

Michael Dawson
Martin Olsson
Clint Dempsey



Believable4 Unbelievable2

Warnick... good brazilian player? Or did you mean Warnock?

Agree4 Disagree0

Pressed i instead of o mate. Don't think MoN is a fan of Brazilian players. Not his kind of players. Likes your typical hard working British players.

Agree4 Disagree1

26 Aug 2012 11:13:09
WEST BROM defender Jonas Olsson could be the next new arrival on Wearside.

Believable6 Unbelievable3

Would rather have olsen from blackburn

Agree7 Disagree2

I can see 2 players coming in next week a LB either ivan strinic,danny rose but my moneys on jonas Olsson as west brom are interested in martin olsson from blackburn,a CF somebody to play off fletcher am hoping someone like jordan Rhodes or a loan deal for marouane chamakh from arsenal or even Defoe (depending on who AVB brings in)
