My brother told me about rose and jenas 2 weeks ago. I know jenas didnt sign but he knew there was interest! He has just text me saying we are in talks with micheal owen but were not keen on paying him too much so not sure if it will happen but we are interested!

Heskey still available on a free.

Agree3 Disagree1

So much for quality, only two id put in that bracket fletch n Johnson, thought we still need striker say GUidetta n tough talking midfielder, oh well let's hop we're doing well come Xmas time so we can make some more additions

Agree1 Disagree1

There is always january to strengthen more, we have done excellent this transfer window! some pathetic twisting fans about like!

Agree4 Disagree0

Cuellar got m.o.m last week against arsenal we brought in saha as cover and we have a proper lb plus tough tackling midfielder? What about catts colback vaughan or even gardner? You want too much my friend

Agree1 Disagree0

Some people make me laugh, what about the team we had before theses signings, we were not to bad last season once MON took over and got players to actually play granted we fell away at the end of the season, but we now have an attacking force with AJ , and JM on the wings and sess behind SF, back the lads dont moan, a good season ahead for us i think.

Agree6 Disagree1

I think well struggle also in afraid two good signings doesn't completely transform us

Agree0 Disagree3

You think we'll struggle?! Get a grip of yourself mate. We are a mid-table club and with a 2-2 draw away at arguably one of the best sides in the league in the last 2 games, I'm very happy. Especially when AJ and SF are already pitching in to transform this club. MoN does know what he's doing. Haway The Lads!

Agree1 Disagree1

Believable4 Unbelievable1

31 Aug 2012 21:49:36
Got to be honest. 5 very important & excellent signings by MON & ES, 6 if you include Super Sess.. However, it's ended badly. We still needed a couple more, definately a striker. Still, we will finish 10th, if we can call it progress. Sunderland forever, but maybe not a statement of intent yet.

Believable2 Unbelievable0

I dont think it ended badly mate,cmon think of them poor mites up the road they needed a full back and got sod all,i love agent ashley spurs supremo,i even reckon he got young rose to sign for us.tk73

Dempsey to Spurs {Ed024's Note - Yup }

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Why is it most of the london clubs attract the top players like West Ham QPR and the likes of Dempsey wont come up North ....its a cross we have to bear up here 1

Agree1 Disagree0

Dempsey signs for spurs 6m. Bit dissapponting we didnt make an offer.

Agree0 Disagree0

Take it sunderland are not signing anyone else?

Agree0 Disagree0

Heard that Dempsey has signed for Spurs on a 3 year deal for 6 million ...thats a bargain !....disspointed we didnt get him or go in for him ?

Agree0 Disagree0

Not too upset,as you have to question his integrity.

Agree3 Disagree0

At least we signed Adam Johnson

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 21:32:44

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 21:29:18

Fulham reject Liverpool offer we should go in he hasn't said no to us mon put a bid in

Believable1 Unbelievable1

31 Aug 2012 21:09:56
SS reporting highly unlikely dempsey will sign for liverpool think we'll not get a better opportunity.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Liverpool announced dempsey deal off. Get a bid in Sunderland!! Safc93 {Ed024's Note - He's off to Spurs}

Believable1 Unbelievable1

Dempsey is at spurs as we speak

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 17:58:37
Purely a rumour but my uncle just text me saying if Liverpool don't bid for dempsey by 9 we will put a bid in. He heard it in his local pub so probably nothing to it but you never know in football. Safc93

Believable3 Unbelievable3

Can we really go into a new season with only one out and out striker ? (Not counting FC - too light weight and doesn't score enough, not counting Ji or Whickham full stop). We are woefully exposed here and must strengthen upfront - come on MON

Agree1 Disagree2

Well Dempsey rejected Aston Villa, Fulham reject bid from Liverpool, now think he has Sunderland or supposedly arsenal and spurs haway the lads !

Agree3 Disagree2

Well he hasnt actually said NO to Sunderland !

Agree2 Disagree1

Its good to raed from the new signings that the main reason they came here was because of what MON said to them showing we can attract the best under this manager !

Agree1 Disagree1

Dempsey would be good!

Agree1 Disagree0

Come on Dempsey

Agree1 Disagree0

Dempsey bid rejected by Liverpool for 4 million... 7 million would seal him if Liverpool won't offer any more than that. C'mon O'Neill!

Agree0 Disagree0

Suposedly at spurs comon oniel grab him plzzzzzz

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 15:26:41
Any more talk about Dempsey

Believable3 Unbelievable2

All gone quiet mate. Fulham waiting for an offer from Liverpool but there isn't one coming in... MoN must be watching the situation. I say if there is no official bid from Liverpool for Dempsey by 5:30, then we should put in a bid for him and tell him that Liverpool aren't calling him! But if that doesn't happen then I think it's business done for this window.

Agree3 Disagree1

He may want liverpool but I think he might take spurs, we should do a sneaky bid in the next 2hrs n fly him up in a chopper

Agree2 Disagree0

Very happy with buisness this summer,well done to mon,ellis and the backroom team,lets enjoy.keep the faith.tk73

Agree2 Disagree1

Both Spurs and Liverpool have now submitted bids for Dempsey. Absolutely no chance of him coming to us, so I think we've done our business for this transfer window...

Agree1 Disagree3

Liverpool made a bid been turned down by fulham

Agree2 Disagree2

Fulham want 15 mil off liverpool 12 off every 1 else {Ed052's Note - No they dont - 7m will do it}

Agree1 Disagree2

1/5 to sign for liverpool....7/2 to sign for spurs and 20/1 to sign for us, not gona happen people

Agree1 Disagree2

Think we may get one more player mayb but if not am happy wid who we av bought nd rose on loan :)

Agree1 Disagree0

ED fulham have turn down 10 mil where does 7 mil come from ?? plus liverpool offered 2 players in deal ? jordan henderson being 1 of the players

Agree0 Disagree0

Villa offered 5 mil with 2 mil adons

Agree0 Disagree1

MON & ES have left London. Heading to Swansea for the match tomorrow. Transfer dealings in are now done, no more in. Dealings out are left to MB at AOL. Happy with Cueller, Saha, Fletch, AJ, Rose & Sess extension. Ha Way the Lads.

Believable3 Unbelievable3

I expect one more might be a shock!

Agree2 Disagree1

No chance

Agree3 Disagree2

All done for ins now. Get some sleep & cheer on the lads. Ha Way

Agree0 Disagree0

I hope you're wrong. Been saying all along that Fletcher alone is not enough. We need to partner him with someone and have cover for him if he gets a knock. With Sess, Johnson, MacClean and Larrson we have bucket loads of ammo but who ever relied on only one out and out striker.
Come on MON you know it makes sense.

Agree1 Disagree1

No need for panic buys so cant see any shocks but you never know, thats why today is exciting aye

Agree1 Disagree0

Its not over till the fat lady sings at 11pm !

Agree0 Disagree0

Sess and Johnson can play as an out and out striker aswell !

Agree0 Disagree0

According to sky sports the jermain jenas deal is off


But at least we beat Newcastle to Danny rose

Believable6 Unbelievable0

Thank goodness for Jenas not coming !..there must be a god up there !...great to see Rose is coming .. HELL probbaLly have richos number 3 shirt !

Agree3 Disagree0

C/mon Oneill lets get a few more signings in please, 1 more striker ideally guidetta and tough takling midfielder

Agree2 Disagree0

If oneill was after jenas he must think we need another midfielder someone else must be in line.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 13:15:27
Danny Rose's loan move from Spurs has been signed and sealed. That's one down, how may to come? GM

Believable2 Unbelievable0

31 Aug 2012 12:31:27
Never rated Jenas best days at newcastle but not good enough for sunderland

Believable7 Unbelievable3

According to Mail it is a done deal- if true very depressing to see O'Neill's idea of 'quality' stretches to crocks who were never much good even at the peak. Beginning to understand why we have all those CBs that resemble revolving doors- he must think Bramble and Kilgallon are quality too!

Agree1 Disagree1

Jenas deal is off just on sky sports news now

Agree1 Disagree0

Team after window ends
mignolet
rose, cuellar, oshea, bardsley
maclean, catts, johnson
sessignon
fletcher, saha

Bench: Westwood, gardiner, kilgallon, larsson, colback, whickham & campbell

Agree1 Disagree2

Oh yes oh yes oh yes Jenas has turned us down!

Agree2 Disagree1

Deal has collapsed.....yippeeeeeeeee

Agree0 Disagree0

Glad deal fell thru

Agree1 Disagree0

Good to see Johnson and Fletcher (though he will need to improve considerably on previous showings to justify his fee) come in, but very disappointing that we seem to be consistently out-manoeuvred by the likes of Hughes, Jol and Pulis when it comes to attracting solid premier players at reasonable prices. Club needs to show more creativity in its off-field activities as well as on it.

Agree0 Disagree2

Who have stoke got that sunderland would want? Man for man our 1st team is better than theres. They have signed Kightly & Adam and an american. Who out of them 3 would have been better for us than who we have signed.Adam is only good for set pieces(we already have 2 specialists). He can't tackle pass or move that quick. Hughes has endless funds at his disposal so we are never going to compete on that front. Fulham have signed petric and berbatov- but have lost dembele and essentially Dempsey.So they have lost there 2 most influencial players. We have lost no key players and brought in players in all the areas we need to strengthen in. Dembele went to th for 15-we only paid 8 for Sess. In other words. Give your head a shake

Agree2 Disagree0

What creativity,weve signed adam johnson for a snip man,could fit into most champions lge teams,i bet majority of the prem nearly papped when he signed for us,best signing ive seen at safc for donkeys.tk73

Agree1 Disagree0

No body else actuaully took time to try and sign him....and he COULD NOT get in to cuty team.....k

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2012 11:50:56
Dempsey rejects villa, we should go in even if its just as a backup option for him. We're far more appealing than villa. Safc93

Believable4 Unbelievable1

Whickham gonna go to celtic, the martin oneill connection makes this possible as its a season long loan, we need another striker as only got campbell & fletcher, dont no if we can include ji dong as a striker

Agree3 Disagree2

And saha and Noble and Sess if we're pushed. Why can we not class Ji as a striker he looked quality in that role at the olympics.O'Neil has already said the door is open for him this season

Agree1 Disagree0

Just sat at work and heard on SSn that Clint is off to l'pool! Who else for the lads red and white forever raw74

Agree1 Disagree1

Think JI will come good this year !...mind MON will have to play him at some stage .....the same goes with Noble !

Agree1 Disagree0

Ji a quality striker behave please

Agree0 Disagree0

If Wickham would go to Celtic then we could do some sort of deal with Celtic for Hooper? Who knows. only 6 hours left now lads. We need somebody else... seems all too quiet for us now though.

Agree1 Disagree0

Only two signings sunderland will make before close -

Danny Rose on loan
Jermaine Jenas - permenant

Believable3 Unbelievable4

Not Jenas.......It's Rose & Dawson.

Agree3 Disagree4

See Richos joined Fulham and we are getting Jenas !..has MON gone mad ?

Agree3 Disagree2

We ended last season with five clear problem areas: no LB, no pace at CB, not winning ball regularly in MF without giving a way stupid free-kicks, not enough creativity in MF, and not enough strike power. The changes in personnel have seen some strengthening of the last two areas, though not much by way of cover, and a young LB on loan. But still no pace at CB and no still no cover for Catts- who admittedly has the odd good game but also has too many poor ones and spends too much time injured or suspended. And we are still looking like a 4-5-1 set up away from home, and probably at home too against the stronger teams. This will not fill the stadium.

Agree1 Disagree3

I do car finance for players and players agent and I have just been informed of this, this is Martin Oneils main targets now

Agree0 Disagree3

Of corse you do........k

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 11:05:43

We are close to signing Jenas why do we need another midfielder ?

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 14:36:25
defo rose at lb but id rather have guidetta up front then jenas

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Aug 2012 09:42:53
Listening to MON press conference, did he indicate something was happening with Fulham and other than Dempsey which I always doubted, perhaps versatile fullback Chris Baird

Believable0 Unbelievable2

Danny Rose loan agreed, according to Sky. Will that be end of business?

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Aug 2012 09:19:13
Oneil has been in talks with a midfielder. This one has been kept very quiet and is not Dempsey. I dont know who it is but have been tipped off its a very good player

Believable3 Unbelievable0

Poss Milner. Heard a while back that he would make a decision on deadline day, subject to whether he was guaranteed starts at Man City, subject to who they signed?

Agree1 Disagree1

The word is thats its arshavin

Agree2 Disagree1

Arshavin or Milner thought it said a good player....someone like Van Der Vaart would be nice

Agree2 Disagree1

If its top secret how do u no its not dempsey?

Agree2 Disagree0

Thought it was going too well now we are close to signing Jenas oh no !

Agree3 Disagree0

Its jenas

Agree1 Disagree2

Told you a midfielder was due. I have more news, we r in talks to sign another striker. He has played for england, thats all I can say

Agree0 Disagree1

Stop being delusional its not van der vaart

Agree0 Disagree0
