Seems to be a few rumours around about whickham going out on loan? Any truth do you reckon? {Ed024's Note - Doubt it - we just dont have enough cover.}

Believable5 Unbelievable5

Could be possibility if Zarate comes as well as Graham

Agree4 Disagree6

Your joking !..who would we play up front if Fletcher is injured !...Westwood ?

Betting suspended on Danny Graham joining Sunderland. I'm not exactly delighted if the signing happens but I will give the lad a chance to prove himself. {Ed024's Note - he knows he has to win the fans over - if he's wearing red and white we've got to back him]

Believable9 Unbelievable2

Once again Martin O'Neill looks like bagging his number one choice. This could be significant. We must let MON build 'his' team before we judge him.
As for Graham's perceived allegiances - irrelevent - his reputation is that of a model pro.

Agree11 Disagree3

Totally agree Ed. We have to get behind all our players. Can't believe people were giving AJ a hard time. He is slowly improving and will become the player we all know he can be.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Looks like danny graham could be moving to us or Norwich after asking to leave :)

Believable7 Unbelievable1

We will get him coz he wants to play in the northeast

Agree8 Disagree1

He wants to move to sunderland. He wants to be in the north east and newcastle can't afford him after panic buying frenchies. Safc93

Agree11 Disagree4

All bets on Danny Graham to move before Feb. 1st now suspended.
Favourite to join Sunderland (1-8 on) at point of suspension.
Medical tomorrow perhaps ?

Agree4 Disagree4

Hardly panic buying. 3 French internationals. Panic buying would be doing something like getting Paul scharner on loan...

Agree2 Disagree5

Yeah panic buying a loan, that makes sense,

Agree4 Disagree1

Even if the fella above is a mag.

Truer words were never spoken

Agree3 Disagree4

As a sunderland fan it irritates me that evrry conversation has to link to newcastle. Makes us actually look obsessed. I await posts calling me 'a mag'.

tv reporting Danny Graham asks to leave Swansea for personal reasons.

Graham's handed in a transfer request according to tv

Danny Graham has handed in a transfer request for "Personal Reasons" Wants to move closer to his family? Cash in Mr O'Neill! Also, we need another CB. Somebody who doesn't lack pace... I can see 2 coming in before the window shuts. Graham and a new CB on deadline day. As we all know MoN always waits until the end to do his business... .

Believable6 Unbelievable1

Y on earth would we want a not very good...average at best Geordie at sol..

Agree2 Disagree9

Need to a RB not a CB, we've just got one on loan who isn't as slow as everyone else.....two attackers needed, whether that be a striker or create midfielder, hopefully both....we'll just have to wait and see

Agree2 Disagree0

Love to see Dorrans (West Brom) in a red and white shirt

Agree1 Disagree4

Would all these Graham haters boo critizise him if he banged in 10 goals for us this season ? ! childish and petty ! and these are real Sunderland supporters !?? ...not really !...grow up !

Agree7 Disagree0

Completely agree with you, the same people probably slated fletcher before he came!

Agree1 Disagree0

Have the doubters seen him play recently ?
He looks like the type of player that we desperately need.
Can you remember the Fletcher whiners, saying that he was not worth it ? Not many have posted their acceptance that they were wrong. Bet it is the same narrow minded people that are saying they won't welcome DG.

Ed have you heard the rumour that man united are being rumoured too want too sign simon mignolet in the summer? (is there anything in this) I for one hope not {Ed024's Note - no not heard anything regarding Mignolet}

i am behind MON but a bit worried about lack of comings to SAFC.
MON has said many times that our squad is way too small and so far as it stands we are 1 player less with 3 out and only 2 in.
some have said on this site that he, s keeping things quiet to stop bidding wars etc.
this I can understand from SAFC but when do other teams and agents ever stay quiet about such things its in their interest to create more news so better payments.
i hope and am sure my worries will be proven wrong but howay MARTIE GIVE US SOME NEW PLAYERS

Believable4 Unbelievable2

Don't worry at all! MoN has a certain way of going around the transfer window. He does things out of sight and does not disclose anything. He normally does his business right at the end so expect somebody in on DeadlineDay.

Agree5 Disagree0

See O'Neill is still banging on about the need for strikers, which suggests he has not been watching the horror shows at the back too closely. It is extraordinary, given the age and lack of pace we have at the back that he sees this as the priority. The truth is that if we don't improve the defence then goalkeeper is the priority position, because Migs has been baling out defensive errors all season. God knows where would be if he is injured! Sign a bloody centre-half fit to play in a strong Premier outfit- we haven't got one!

Believable7 Unbelievable4


Agree6 Disagree0

Ndaye is also a cm/centre half

Agree2 Disagree2

N'Daiye was signed to go box-to-box, not to play at centreback, which he has done infrequently, and Mangane comes to us with all the fine tuning we can expect from the ultra competitive Saudi league.... My guess is that even Cuellar and Bramble night look like centrebacks there.

the Graham deal is definaitley off victor anichebe from everton is the next target

Believable1 Unbelievable10

Says who

Agree2 Disagree2

According to a Norwich site he's having a medical at Sunderland !...if he's in the Swansea squad for Tues then he won't be signing ...ed any more news on this ? {Ed024's Note - All depends on Swansea - if they get a striker in they'll let Graham go - if they don't its a non starter}

Agree3 Disagree1

Danny Graham has knocked us back.

Looks like a loan move for Kevin Phillips then.

Believable4 Unbelievable8

Thought was Marco, he often around SoL

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Jan 2013 14:14:59
just read that danny graham is having a medical and if passes will sign on a 5year deal with in the next 24 to 48 hrs.

Believable6 Unbelievable6

He's having a medical and he will sign in two days time. Oh aye OK then

Agree3 Disagree2

28 Jan 2013 13:47:05
looks like MON has his man, Graham arrival imminent, with Scharner, Zarate to follow.

Believable4 Unbelievable7

28 Jan 2013 12:59:44
although a few people are saying we're not interested in zarate I got a text this morning that he will sign on loan with a view to permenant deal in the summer also that graham will sign after tomorrows game you heard anything ed I can't confirm my source as he works at sol and they have been told to keep anything they hear in house.

Believable5 Unbelievable3

Hope so he is quality

Agree3 Disagree0

28 Jan 2013 12:32:46
Roker Report is saying deals for scharner and Zarate are both off with the latter being all agent talk.

Believable1 Unbelievable5

28 Jan 2013 10:38:46
Word has it through Sky Tyne and Wear we have been offered former Chelsea and Hamburg's Serbian International defender on loan with view to permenant.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Who is it?

Agree1 Disagree1

I'm presuming he means Slobodan Rajkovic. Chelsea signed him as a 16 y.o for 4m. Only 23, 6'3, would be great to have for the future.

Agree2 Disagree1

28 Jan 2013 08:47:06
Scharner looking like done deal sone he adds a bit of experience to the team

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Thats a polite way of saying he is past it

Agree7 Disagree4

What an ambitious signing...

Agree0 Disagree2

Well its a loan deal so if he doesn't do the buisness we can bin him at the end of the season. it's a no brainer!

Agree5 Disagree0

Scharner is cover till summer

Agree0 Disagree0

28 Jan 2013 00:47:34
I have heard a lot of links between HSV and the lads, most coming in to use like Scharner loan deal. Mancienne could be a target for use in the summer. I believe Larsson has been linked with a move to HSV. So Ed24 can you see this happening or have you heard anything? {Ed024's Note - I'd be surprised if Larsson went to Hamburg - MON likes him and I can see him still getting game time next season. Scharner looks like a temporary measure until end of season, not heard anything on Mancienne.}

Believable2 Unbelievable0

I'd have sold Larsson and bought Sissoko!

Agree0 Disagree2

Ok cheers Ed24. All apart of the rumour mill I guess.
