Just heard that Stewart Downing is heading for Sunderland tomorrow for medical as he's fallen out with Brendon Rogers as he wants to play Downing at left back.

Believable5 Unbelievable18


Agree5 Disagree5

Why wingers because you need players who can keep the ball in the oppositions half ,if you have players who can use either foot, the opposing team tend to double mark, which means you dont need overlaping pacy fullbacks as you have wingers who can cut inside and swap wings which creates gaps

Agree3 Disagree3

Yes but we have Larsson Johnson and Mclean if we get Downing thats 4 wingers for 2 berths doesnt make sense rather have another striker cos if Fletcher gets injured we are back to sq one !

Agree3 Disagree0

Larsson is no winger, more of a central midfielder. i can see some truth to this as rodgers is on llorente chase and needs funds to fund a move for him and dempsey.

Agree0 Disagree0

Danny Simpson on the radar, Only a year left on his contract.

Fee could be as low as 200k if that lot get a replacement, Part of a reshuffle with King Kiero on the way out.

Believable3 Unbelievable13

So we take their leftovers. Hell no

Agree8 Disagree4

200k u having a laugh fee will be 2 million otherwise he just stays why take 200k when its going to cost us us 6 million to replace him......k

Agree1 Disagree2

A big fat no to Danny Simpson plus he wants to stay with Newcastle

Agree10 Disagree1

This wont happen,not a hope!

Agree8 Disagree2

Are you a mag just trying to get rid of your rubbish? Honestly, sort yourselves out. Some of the stuff on this page is pure tripe!

Agree7 Disagree1

We had him b4 newcastlw he is awful he ry is a championship player

Agree7 Disagree0

According to pre stats last season he was one of the best defenders in country with most assists........k

Agree1 Disagree5

Jordan Henderson coming home!

Believable9 Unbelievable17

To see his mam hopefully

Agree13 Disagree6

Hope not...

Agree11 Disagree5

A midfielder who doesn't tackle ? That"s a luxury we can"t afford right now, or need. Where's Fletcher's partner ? Come on MON we need another striker - should Fletch get crocked (God forbid), we'd be back to square one !

Agree8 Disagree2

Wots wrong wit saha ?

Agree11 Disagree0


Agree2 Disagree2

If Fletcher got injured then Saha would be the striker. We aren't gunna sign a top striker like Defoe just for him to sit on the bench

Agree3 Disagree0

A workfriend also works for safc part time and says that the club are trying to persuade clint dempsey to move north and are also looking at a huge bid and big wages to lure leighton baines . My source says this is what has been told to him from people in the know. Hope it happens watch this space.

Believable10 Unbelievable15

Why would Baines leave a team that will almost definitely be playing European football again next season to come to us?

Agree3 Disagree7

Baines turned down the chance to go to Man Utd, I doubt he's coming to us

Agree10 Disagree3

We were after Baines before he joined Everton, and had more chance then than now. Fee for Richardson seems small, considering his versatility and attitude, which has always been good. We still need specialist LB, speed at CB, and bite in midfield. Looks like there is enough creativity now, but not many ball winners. But two more days......let us hope there are a couple more arrivals- and that Bruce recalls he forgot to take Bramble and Elmo with him when he left!

Agree5 Disagree0

Hi im only reporting what has been said by someone I know inside the club. As for a ball winner is cattermole not oe

Agree5 Disagree2

Cattermole is a headless chicken at times would rather have Huddlestone from spurs at least he can pass a ball

Agree3 Disagree4

Baines now linked ?! more chance of Elvis joining us !

Agree4 Disagree5

Dont think catt's gets the credit he deserves. has his moments of madness,but the pressure he puts on opposing players is immense,imo.

Agree4 Disagree1

With reference to more chance elvis joining than baines, uhhuhuhuhu

Agree5 Disagree0

Baines is class and could pretty much walk into any prem team bar 2 why would he choose safc......k

Agree2 Disagree3

Ha......funniest post Ive read!!!

Agree3 Disagree3

You embarrassed yourself stating Baines may be coming, hope no other teams supporters reads this, especially everton fans as they will laugh at us, also why would he leave them to come to us, person

Agree3 Disagree1

Baines? As in Leighton Baines? Jesus Christ ... what is wrong with you. From an Everton fan Baines is going absolutely nowhere, he's even turned down Manchester United and is about to sign a new contract with Everton. I went to second leg of the FA cup last year and spoke to several SAFC fans which I found to be proper football fans from what I call a 'proper football club' just like us. They talked a lot of sense as to why I look out for SAFC every now and then and hope you do well, but this is just ridiculous, no offence to be made to your club, but he definitely won't leave Everton for Sunderland. I wouldn't even think about seeing him in a SAFC shirt. Good luck this season guys and finish above them geordies and do us all a favour.

Agree7 Disagree1

Money talks my friend. Thats somethimg everton havnt got. Watch this space

Agree0 Disagree4

You are right money does talk, it's a pitty you can't afford one of if not the best left back in the league. Turning down Everton and Manchester United for ... Sunderland, ofcourse. Enjoy dreaming about this and I enjoy to see your replies come Saturday. It's that bad you can't even say it's a 'rumour' and you are posting it on a 'rumour' site because it isn't even a rumour. Just a laughable statement for me and everyone else to read.

Agree3 Disagree1

Just so happens everton have spent more money on player than safc ever have....everton constinstly over achieve on very little every season and finish higher than safc why would he down grade and go to wonders.....k

Agree0 Disagree1

Consistently over achieve? top flight football for over a 100 years, 4th most successful team in England, a long time to over achieve that is. Enjoy your mediocre midtable finish.

Agree0 Disagree0

• Millions spent since Jan 2003

1. Chelsea 673
2. Man City 572
3. Liverpool 414
4. Man United 352
5. Tottenham 350

Agree1 Disagree0

Rumour has it that Sunderland are trying to sign Alvaro Vazquez Garcia, a striker from Espanyol. Swansea also interested.

Believable11 Unbelievable7

GOOD player but can't see this one taking off. Still think Jonas Olsson will be our next signing.

Agree5 Disagree8

Going to Getafe by all acounts

Agree5 Disagree2

Warnock will be our next and last signing

Agree2 Disagree9

Wld take Garcia defi although wld b pretty annoyed if wev let Richardson go to replace him with warnock!! We're gonna run outta time just over 48 hrs same old Sunderland panicking at last minute

Agree2 Disagree3

Agree about not getting warnock but i dont think we will be panicing targets will of been identified and enquiries made

Helicopter just landed at seaham hall, pic on fb. lots of rumours circulating about who it could be. Most people mentioning dempsey and martin Olsson. Could be nothing but I thought I would mention it. Safc93

Believable2 Unbelievable8

I passed seaham hall this morning about 8:15, saw helecopter on grass ( green ) not necessarily a signing, also could be someone signing for the smogs or mags.

Agree1 Disagree6

Hence why I said it could be nothing. Safc93

Agree5 Disagree2

If Richo is going to Fulham seems natural the fee would be taken off any deal for Dempsey ..2million isnt enough considerig what we paid for Fletcher

Agree4 Disagree2

Good to know the grass was (green) very reassuring

Agree9 Disagree1

More than likely b Olson or another left back

Agree3 Disagree1

Seen that helicopter yesterday after I was leaving about 5pm I was in the crows nest

Agree0 Disagree2

Distinguishing between green grass,and the grass he was smoking,lol

Agree4 Disagree0

It was george osborne, the chancellor, sorry lads nowt in this rumour

Agree5 Disagree0

Amazing what you can get on expenses

Agree2 Disagree1

Sorry to build your hopes up mate but that was just me taking the bird out for a spin. Called into Seaham Hall for a swift one.

Definately need someone to play off fletcher, jordan rhodes to sign by thursday

Believable3 Unbelievable13

Did you just grab that name out of the air?

Agree10 Disagree1


Agree5 Disagree7

What do you suggest we do with sess as that is where he will play

Agree1 Disagree1

Thats where sessegnon will play

Agree3 Disagree1

Sess to play off 2 front men as attacking midfielder. Just imagine a Fletcher, Defoe (if we got him), and Sess strike force - BRING ON THE MAGS

Agree4 Disagree2

Flecther, Defoe(LMAO) and Sess....Or Ba, Cisse and Ben Arfa. Are you sure you want ot bring us on??????

Agree5 Disagree2

What did ba cisse and ben arfa do to us last season. Had about 15 touches between them out of both games. Safc93

Agree6 Disagree2

Yeah Jordan rhodes to sign for Middlesbrough and before u say I'm a Geordie or a smogg I'm a mackem

Agree0 Disagree2

Any day! Cisse a 1 season wonder, Ba injury prone and Ben Arfa of to Arsenal!

Agree4 Disagree3

15 touches between them....Maybe so but we still took 4 points. Thank you very much...

Agree3 Disagree1

Cisse one season wonder? After 2 games..Cheers. Ba injury prone? He missed less games last season than Sess and that was very few. Ben Arfa off to Arsenal. Not a chance. I know which fron 3 I would rather have. SMB.

Agree4 Disagree1

Its great how gyan scores about 11 goals and he,s world class and woth 18 million according to posts on here before he was sold for million......cisse comes in scores 13 wonder goals in 12 games and he,s a 1 season wonder.......wonder what tjr odds would be for cisse to be higher than the 14 million signing fletcher.....k
