Christopher samba to sign for Sunderland in next 24-48 hours (princey1995)

Believable5 Unbelievable10

Should have bought him when he wanted to leave blackburn,didnt think hed last long in russia anyway especially with the racism,remember odemwingie had loads of bother with it couldnt wait to leave.tk73

Agree6 Disagree1

Think he has signed for Anzhi

Agree5 Disagree1

Your right tk73 we should have signed him then but he chose Russia instead I don't know why as like you said there is a lot of racial abuse towards players there but IMO he only went for the money should be a decent signing if it goes through (princey1995)

Agree4 Disagree1

Wouldn't meet his massive wages. He went to Russia for money only!

Agree3 Disagree1

For me samba would be signing of the season he is a beast at the the back and would partner cueller well me thinks would love to see this move hAppen.

Agree6 Disagree0

Iv got to say that Carlos cuellar is the twin brother of lorik Cana they are the double of each other lol (princey1995)

Agree2 Disagree3

Why? That would mean O`Shea,Brown,Turner,Bramble,Cuellar,Killgallon AND Samba. I can see Mon`s tactics now! Sunderland RCA you now have another supporter through the gates on a saturday.

Agree1 Disagree5

Alright lads just got off the plane from france spoke to PSG official about the possible signing of 3 PSG players heading to the stadium of light under 1 condition sess stays put..... Who cud these 3 players be ????

Agree1 Disagree4

So psg would sell 3 of their players on the condition they dont get sess? this makes no sense

Agree5 Disagree0

Imagine the combined pace of the back four even fat boy heskey would out pace that need some young pacey cb

Agree0 Disagree0

Miroslav Klose to sign on 2 yr deal , watch this space !

Believable2 Unbelievable11

He is a bit special,but wages will be astronomical!! tk73

Agree6 Disagree0

And to be honest he's abit too old for the premiership (princey1995)

Agree3 Disagree3

To old have you seen the ahe of your defence...?

Agree2 Disagree1

MON will try to sign Hugo Rodellaga as a chepaer option if a fee can't be agreed for Fletcher.

Believable3 Unbelievable9

Cheaper? He's a free agent....

Agree5 Disagree0

I wouldn't touch him with a s**tty nappy. Scored hardly any goals and brings nothing to a team. I'd rather we played Wickham for every game

Agree6 Disagree4

We will bid around 22m in the next 48hours for both Downing and Adam.. Just heard from a very good club insider!

Why downing. Mclean is better

Agree12 Disagree4

Very much doubt it will be both and very much doubt they will sign for us I think if we had chance at signing one of them it would be downing as he is out of favour at Liverpool and johnssons wage budget is far too high for us (princey1995)

Agree4 Disagree5

Plus Adam is a top centre mid so no chance of signing him aswell got abit mixed up with last post sorry i thought you meant adam johnsson lol (princey1995)

Agree2 Disagree2

Hahhahahhhah sorry cant stop laughing ..u might get johnson but i believe you want him on loan and city to pay half his wages due to safc not being able to afford his full wages.........22 million i will be very surprised if you spend that in the full window......

Agree4 Disagree7

Can't see this one, would be good but a non starter.

Agree3 Disagree2

Not good enough and why would they leave liverpool for sunderland?

Agree3 Disagree4

Might have to disagree there. I am highly doubting either will join Sunderland. Maybe Charlie Adam, but not Downing. Even though Downing has worked with O'Neill he is a first team regular with Liverpool, or was. Adam may just relish the chance.

Agree4 Disagree1

Would love adam, but we dont need downing

Agree7 Disagree2

I would take both, either on loan or signed on a permanant.Both would add to the squad and create competion.

Agree1 Disagree2

Couldn't meet fee or wage demands.

Agree1 Disagree0

Mclean is better are you having a laugh he,s had one half good season and at the end of last season every one got wise to his style and struggled a bit...johnson and downing have done year in year out for 3 or 4 seasons...

Agree1 Disagree2

The Stats so far

2011/2012-James MClean 23 APP 5 Goals 6 Assists
2011/2012 Downing APP 36 0 Goals 0 Assists

The problem is at 27 Downing should really be at his peak and if is peak is no goals or assists then I would pass thanks.

The stats so far in the premier league

Downing- 1 goal per 7.2 games
1 Assisst per 6.3 games

MClean 1 goal per 4.6 games
1 Assisst per 3.8

Obviously you have to look at consistency but if I had to choose one or the other then it's MClean without a doubt. {Ed001's Note - Downing did create the most unconverted chances in the Prem though. He might have had a shedload of assists if Liverpool's strikers weren't having a stinker of a season.}

Agree2 Disagree0

Put it this way. According to the geordies we played 11 men behind the ball last season and still 4 of our defenders had a higher goal scoring record than Downing last season.....

Agree2 Disagree0

Gotta agree with ed001 downing is a lot better than mclean...k {Ed001's Note - not so sure about that, I haven't seen enough of Mclean to judge him, though what I did see showed more endeavour than ability to me. But he is only a kid, he has time to improve the weaknesses in his game and he shows a willingness to put effort in, which augurs well for his future.}

Agree1 Disagree0

I got the same amount of assists and goals as downing for liverpool last season 0 and...0

Agree1 Disagree0

Liverpool struggled all season thats a fact and as for mclean i think this season he wont be as good for you not remember the second season of phillips and quinny they where not as good as every one got wise to there tactics....

Agree0 Disagree0

Sunderland have confirmed the signing of Carlos cuellar on a two year deal and Louis Saha to the second signing in the next couple of days (princey1995)

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Wow that's putting your average age up again lol top class signings

Agree7 Disagree5

Exciting times for the Mackems (teee hee hee)

You get Cuellar and we get Douglas, Debuchy & De Jong.

Sunderland are zzzzzzzzzz

Agree4 Disagree8

Another Epic signing, Should be good alongside Titue Bramble

Agree3 Disagree3

They are two decent players and bring a lot of experience to the club plus Sunderlands young squad (princey1995)

Agree3 Disagree5

Mon just loves pensioners on big contracts ....futures bright but it aint red and white....

Agree5 Disagree3

Young squad?

Agree3 Disagree1

Since when have spewcastle signed douglas, debuccy and de jong? we sign a 30 year old experienced defender and the geordies come out of there squatting dens and think they funny one word SGBS PATHETIC!

Agree4 Disagree5

Bramble doesnt get a game for us goon and you have been told to raise bids for all 3 plus McLaren said it would take silly money to sign de jong. You lot are the most deluded people I know

Agree2 Disagree3

Mcclean colback mignolet are young and have done well so experienced players will help the squad

Agree3 Disagree2

The mags dont even have as much money as the fans think they have,and they have a wage cap of about 40 grand thats why players will leave,fat ashley wont pay a penny more than he has to,if its good profit he would sell the lot.tk73

Agree4 Disagree2

TK73 we will spend the same as you person as you aint got to spend what you think you have to for a wage cap safc,s is about the same as nufc,s thats why according to a sunderland newspaper you had asked man city to pay for half of johnsons wages 40k...finally i,ll keep an eye on all this money your going to spend tk73 and will be back to mock big time along with lots of other people when it does not go your way just like last transfer window and the one before...

Agree0 Disagree3

You are probably correct,keano mucked our spending days up big style,giving out stupid contracts to poor short is trying to recoup a lot of losses,but he will provide the funds for oneill make no mistake,if he wants a certain player he will release the money needed,short knows hes not dealing with a keane or bruce anymore.tk73

Agree1 Disagree1

De jong debuchy and douglas will cost around 28m you really think ashley will spend that on 3 players?

Agree2 Disagree2

Tbh i never thought we would spend 10 million on cisse so who knows

Agree0 Disagree0

No chance,he will offload first,hes waiting 4 bids for ba,but will he pass a medical with his dodgy knee, the mags took a chance with him but will another club take that chance.tk73

Agree0 Disagree0
