Bryan Oviedo fc copenhagen left back now linked to safc, you heard it here first

Believable7 Unbelievable4

Hes coming to everton, back up for the best left back in the league Leighton Baines

Agree8 Disagree7

Cole is the best lb in the league. Safc93

Agree7 Disagree10

Colback is

Agree7 Disagree4

Can't believe we are still looking for a left back, that we have not signed another ball-winner for MF, or that Bramble/Kilgallon might still get the odd game. Attacking options greatly improved this week, but defense still needs attention. When you have spare defenders that not even championship sides are looking to take on a permanent basis you know you need better players.

Agree1 Disagree0

Defo rid of Bramble & Ji Don, Kilgallon i'd keep, need a left back, another striker therefore possibly let go of Campbell, as with tough tackling midfielders we have Catts, Vaughan & Gardiner!

Agree1 Disagree0

Mk dons away in the league cup. Don't fancy newcastles chances away to man u. Safc93

Believable9 Unbelievable0

We have a tough game tbh but these lower division teams are never a walk in the park my friend.....k

Agree8 Disagree2

Your right. As we found out against notts county and you lot found out against Stevenage 2 seasons ago. Safc93

Who do you think may come in that we are linked with:

Danny Rose - Loan


Believable3 Unbelievable3

Defoe just signed a contract extension with spurs, would'nt have left london anyway

Agree5 Disagree0

I think (my opinion only) that we will get 2 players. Danny Rose and maybe at a push Clint Dempsey. If not Dempsey then maybe Downing? Don't want him to be honest but he won't get regular football with that Sterling bloke that LFC have now. Great little talent that lad. But ye, 2 players, rose and dempsey.

Agree3 Disagree0

I admit to only watching half the Liverpool v Man City match but that Sterling lad seemed to run down blind allies, make poor decisions and bad passes. He must have been superman in the other half, or is it another case of over-rating some teenager. It was hardly the second coming of Ryan Giggs.

Agree1 Disagree1

30 Aug 2012 21:19:15
Now that Carroll has joined West Ham, it appears Dempsey will be on his way to Liverpool. Really hope Sir Martin still brings in another forward, but can't think of who else is available. Maybe Guidetti??

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Thought Lpool needed the money from Carroll to fund Dempsey, so hopefully they ll still be struggling + they have apparently made a bid for Sturridge.

Agree2 Disagree0

He's on his way to safc cos I say so

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 20:24:07
Carroll moving south so that means dempsey to liverpool.

Believable6 Unbelievable7

No not really. Heard liverpool after lorentte.

Agree6 Disagree1

Also LFC put in a bid for Sturridge!

Seen a few rumours that MON in london speaking to rose and trying to do a deal for dempsey. Safc93

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Sunderland to sign kaka in the biggest shock of transfer window

Agree11 Disagree7

MON was giving an interview at 7pm in Sunderland as per BBC Sport re Sess, so hes not in London.

He dis state there is likely more incomings and did confirm we want a LB and he has enquired about Dempsey, would love us to sign Dawson
(Steve f)

Agree4 Disagree1

MON at AOL,so stop talking poo poo.

Agree3 Disagree0

Berbatov going to fulham Carrol gone to west ham liverpool going to bid for sturridge could that mean dempsey is on this way.

Agree4 Disagree0

You're forgetting all the terrible people he signed eg. Paul McShane.

Agree4 Disagree0


Agree0 Disagree1

And youre point is??

Agree0 Disagree1

Keane signed McShane

Agree4 Disagree2

Bruce was generally very good in the transfer market... and that was all he was good at

Agree0 Disagree0

True.. Bruce was good on the market, but MON has much more influence to get real good players to Sunderland.. he's MON and he is highly respected.. Bruce couldn't get players to play..

Agree0 Disagree0

Elmo loaned to Hull

Believable6 Unbelievable1

30 Aug 2012 15:34:09
strange timing i think, sess extends his contract and defoe imeadiately follows suit, makes you think if a trade deal was discussed

Believable5 Unbelievable6

Norwich and Wigan put 8m bids in for him but he wants to hold fire a little bit, maybe stoke or west brom could interest him in january.

Agree1 Disagree4

8mil bid for defeo? Lol

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Aug 2012 15:33:26
Great news about Sess signing a contract extension but lets be honest, it doesn't mean that much! just means he's safe until January!

Would love to see Dempsey at the SoL but again, i have my doubts, i really think its defenders we should be looking at, and i imagine that's MON first priority before we go chasing for more attack and flair?

Plus how much do we really know about whats in the youth squad, MON might find that he has a defender already capable, would like to see one of the younger lads break through. if not, Colbeck and Gardener can both play well in those posistions


Believable4 Unbelievable3

Gardner is not a right back, and the only reason they got away with it on Tuesday is they had nobody threatening them.

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 15:02:58
Sunderland are one of the clubs in talks with benayoun.

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Believable5 Unbelievable3

Wont get 4m for frazier. Maybe use him in part ex with dempsey

Agree3 Disagree1

No leighton baines then, lol


Agree2 Disagree2

Baines wanted a fish lot each week and sunderland said haddock away with ya lad

Agree2 Disagree1

As if we had a chance with baines,wishful thinking wasnt it,plus evertons half time pies are absolute tops.tk73

Agree2 Disagree0

No Cabaye or Tiote either, both going south.


Agree0 Disagree0

Blooming hake what a load of cods wallop, maybe you should try another plaice.

Agree2 Disagree0

Thought wed get money for Elmo in a permenant transfer but hes on premiership wages so it gets another player off the wages bill..well some of it

Agree1 Disagree0

Haha 'blooming hake',like it

Heard strong rumours 3 clubs in talks for Dempsey. Liverpool, Sunderland & West Ham. Think he is gonna sign for the Scousers but MON has other targets if this does not come off. Guidetti is still very much on the cards.

Believable3 Unbelievable1

Liverpool need to raise funds before they can buy

Agree3 Disagree1

30 Aug 2012 14:25:07
Squad after Dealine In My Opinion.


RB-Bardsley(once fit) CB-O'Shea CB-Brown (once fit) LB-Colback
RM-Johnson CM-Larsson CM-Cattermole LM-McLean


Believable2 Unbelievable4

Cuellar doesn't make the team then?

Agree4 Disagree0


Agree3 Disagree0

So exactly what it already is?

Agree1 Disagree0

Defoe signs 3 year deal and stays at Spurs

Agree1 Disagree0

What about Cuellar?

Agree1 Disagree0

Nonsense, no way MON will not sign another recognised striker. Saha will play a bit-part role off the bench. If Fletch injured/suspended we are back to square one 'firing blanks misses - ooh errr !'

Agree2 Disagree1

Be lots of p***ed off Geordies if we do.
You can see all the barbed and pessimistic comments on this site. They are all from our cousins up the road. If they lose Cabaye or Tiote the Tyne will overflow with all their shed tears.

Agree1 Disagree0

Rubbish... forgot Cuellar... instead of Bramble. Thought there was somebody missing.

Agree1 Disagree0

And theres JI aswell

Agree3 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 14:20:39
Dealine day deals IMO
Dempsey 8 million
M.Olsson 3 million plus bramble

Elmo loan (hull)
Richardson 2 million (fulham) today or tomorrow
Wickham loan (brighton)
Vaughn 3 million (swansea)
Campbell 3 million (huddersfield)

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Vaughan still not fit, so move for him unlikely.

Agree2 Disagree0

They look likely hope we get dempsey

Agree2 Disagree1

Id be dissapointed if Vaughn went good creative player

Agree2 Disagree1

30 Aug 2012 14:14:32
Sess just signed a new contract keeping him at the SOL till 2015 - great news! FTM

Believable6 Unbelievable2

What a midfield now ! Johnson Mclean Larsson Sessesnon lots of creativity and goal threat there !

Agree4 Disagree1

30 Aug 2012 14:02:18
BREAKING NEWS Sess has just signed a new deal to 2015 & that shakes off the rumours from bigger clubs such as spurs city gunners & French clubs

Believable5 Unbelievable0

Fulham confirm Sunderland interest in Clint Dempsey. CMON

Believable6 Unbelievable0

Just been on ssn

Agree2 Disagree1

Berbatov having medical at Fulham - the plot thickens !

Agree4 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 12:12:45
supposedly.....demsey,defoe and berbatov been signing every day since 2 weeks ago......k

Believable3 Unbelievable5

Sess going nowhere signed new deal today !! Haway the lads

Agree3 Disagree0

Berbatov at Fulham. Dempsey will go, but I don't see him travelling so far north. I think marquee signings over for this year, but still need a couple in- solid LB and reliable CB cover, someone else who can do Catt's role (and pass the ball?) as he is the only tackler left in midfield.

Agree1 Disagree2

Only the official safc site will tell us for certain...talking of which great news Sess signed up till 2015 having a new signing

Agree2 Disagree0

Catts only tackler left? What about colback then

Agree1 Disagree1

And Meyler aswell ...well need both to stay the way Catts clocks up the bookings and another one against Morcambe !

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 10:51:02
Ahmed El-Mohamady

Elmohamady nearing sunderland exit on a loan deal to hull for the rest of the season

Believable7 Unbelievable0

30 Aug 2012 10:14:18
Sunderland will look to bring in Danny Rose if Richardson leaves decent young player could do well for us.

Believable6 Unbelievable4

I Like Rose hes quick gets forward well and a good crosser ! would be a good edition but if its on loan we still need to sort out the left back berth permamently

Agree3 Disagree1

Could be useful if includes sale-clause at end of season otherwise why give experience to Rose at the expense of Blair Adams. Surely must prefer also obtaining more experienced left back

Agree4 Disagree0

Another name clutched out of thin air. He is getting into the first team, why move to Sunderland.

Agree0 Disagree0

We can play colback LB every time he plays in that position he is absolutely fantastic and also we have got a inexperienced LB called Jordan Edgan who is also every good I would like to give him the opportunity (princ£y)

Agree2 Disagree0

Your on about John Egan he's a cb. Blair adams is the left back

Agree1 Disagree0

30 Aug 2012 09:52:49
Sunderland will seal a year long loan deal for Danny Rose tomorrow.

Believable5 Unbelievable6

30 Aug 2012 08:04:00
berbatov is going to fulham. My sunderland contact tells me sunderland have agreed a deal for dempsey to sign. Announced soon. {Ed052's Note -

Believable11 Unbelievable4

So many people have posted this, it ain't gonna happen. Don't get me wrong, I'd love it if it did, but it ain't!!

Agree6 Disagree3

Wish the Dempseygate saga would be sorted one way or the other soon please...also heard that no bids for stephen warnock so with richo leaving MON must have someone else in mind {Ed052's Note - he will go to Liverpool}

Agree4 Disagree1

There is no Demseygate, just people on here making up stories without absolutely no foundation.

If Richardson leave and I think it's far from certain, Rose would be ok. I do hope MON signs another forward, depending on how successful Spurs are Defoe could become available at the last minute.

We will look to offload Elmohamady, Campbell, Bramble and Whikham on loan to a championship club

Agree2 Disagree1

Dempsey was the alternative to Adam Johnson, so you can forget him.

Agree0 Disagree4

Campbell will be gone only if we get in another quality usual there will be a mad scramble up to the deadline of 11pm anything can happen

Agree2 Disagree1

If Adam goes to Stoke i can see Dempsey going to Liverpool at the last moment ! {Ed052's Note - Adam will go, and Dempsey will go to Liverpool}

Agree2 Disagree1

ED052 is Dempsey doesn't go to Liverpool you will look like the biggest person ever that's all you have been saying for weeks! {Ed052's Note - Wont care}

Agree0 Disagree0
