West hams Diame's release clause can be triggered at 3million, surely worth a bid?!

Believable6 Unbelievable2

Apparently some unnamed PL club has put a bid in.

Agree2 Disagree2

Some team has
HOPE IT'S US

Agree4 Disagree1

Spurs

Agree1 Disagree1

It'll not be us, we've got graham nobody else will come in!

Agree3 Disagree1

Into the last hour
If we hear nothing now

Agree3 Disagree0

This guy is the only person who is really interested in transfers
Everyone else is looking for a fight
Good on ya

Agree1 Disagree0

Actually it looks like we've put a loan bid in for downing and possibly we could sign Mcgeady

Believable4 Unbelievable6

Mon might be doing stuff silently

Agree2 Disagree2

I hope so, but I think that's it for us lads

Agree2 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 20:02:00
its not looking promising, I think danny graham could be the only signing of january

Believable4 Unbelievable4

Bar the other two players we've brought in you mean.

Agree5 Disagree1

What about Alfred and KM, do they not count like ?

Agree6 Disagree0

What ? Do N'Diaye and Mangane not count like ?

Agree6 Disagree0

3 players out 3 in and one of them a loan deal so not a stronger squad in numbers which is what we need.
i suppose the players in are better than ones gone so I suppose stronger in midfield/defense.

Agree2 Disagree1

Sorry I forgot those two, but I can't help it, I'm only 7

Agree1 Disagree3

Looks like its another deadline day disappointment for us safc fans

Believable4 Unbelievable4

While it may be disappointing not to see big names being brought to the club we need to think back to what we have spent in the recent past. Keane and Bruce spent heavily and were commendably supported by the club's financiers at the time. I agree we perhaps should have seen a better return for the money we spent but the club is not a bottomless pit, we have to try and operate sensibly. We spent heavily in the summer and have managed to bring in three more this window so again I think the manager has been well backed and we should thank all involved.

Agree6 Disagree1

That has been the most sensible comment I've seen on this page, I myself have this point of view better everyone else seems to think they have a bottomless pit at the club where we can spend 15-20 million on every player, we have to be realistic, as well, if a play is actually that good is he realistically going to be signing for a mid table team unless he has slipped under the radar?

Agree0 Disagree1

31 Jan 2013 19:42:27
Club scource tells me Sunderland working hard to make another signing. Not sure who it is but it may go to the wire and subject to a medical as he won't get this done before 11pm deadline.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

31 Jan 2013 19:32:38
we need a RB and a ACM in the next 3 hours

Believable1 Unbelievable2

What I feel we need is players who care about their trade and have some self pride. the majority of our team at present is BRUCES buys. and they are the ones letting themselves and US down. no pride no passion. equals no shirt in my mind. MON is the best thing to come to sol. and he WILL turn us into a top six side. but must off load 6/7 of bruces has beens.
Lets start flying that red flag and stop the whinging. leave that to the other lot

Agree0 Disagree4

31 Jan 2013 18:18:51
I though mon said he was bringing in at least 2 players on transfer deadline day and he had 5 bids in doesn't look like we are guna sign anyone else

Believable5 Unbelievable1

What do you expect, we always get let down.

Agree4 Disagree3

Plenty time yet

Agree0 Disagree2

31 Jan 2013 18:14:26
Word from Liverpool is Downing to Sunderland. Apparently the 2clubs trying to thrash out a deal. Not sure if this is true but my source has no reason to lie, he's a scouser and a big fan of Downing.

Believable7 Unbelievable3

31 Jan 2013 18:02:23
Mon being linked with mcgeady after he knocked back wigan with the deal almost done.

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Cud be right there

Agree2 Disagree2

Could be very true as tv says Wigan lost out at last moment on him
Could be because of us

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 14:42:38
com on lets give the lad a chance he's red and white now so get behind him we could do with a 2 more marty

Believable21 Unbelievable2

Anyone else other than graham
Coming? {Ed024's Note - No}

Agree4 Disagree4

We need another midfielder
Everyone knows It but MoN

Agree4 Disagree4

Early days but don't rate N'ydiae too highly. hope he is settling in.

Agree1 Disagree7

He is a good manager
But MoN has done nothing for us this transfer window

Agree0 Disagree4

Every day for the past 2 weeks people have been rumoured and spotted and airports and on deadline day NOTHING IT'S RIDICULOUS HOW CAN HE NOT SEE WE NEED SOMEONE OTHER THAN GRAHAM
we need a
RB
Centre attacking mid
Another ST it's not like we haven't had time to put bids in

Agree4 Disagree1

Really sick of all these so called supporters ! MON hasn't done eno!gh this window, you have to be joking! Bought a CF who scored 14 goals in the EPL last season, as big strong CM who is a class player as well as a big CB who is very good. If we were winning every game 5-0 and had the best 11 players in the world, these people would still find something to winge about. Go and support H/pool you miserable persons 1

Agree8 Disagree2

this is a transfer rumours site. Not a bitching site.

Agree4 Disagree0

Lad above is what I call a true supporter.
MON isn't known for panic buys. he's bided his time and brought in 3 good, prem quality players.

IN MON WE TRUST

Agree3 Disagree0

Can we just get back to the roumers
Sick of people sayin they not true supporters but they are looking to fight with another Mackem

Agree0 Disagree0

Happy with the three signings, anything else be bonus. Graham adds to forwards pool of Fletcher, Sess, Wickham, Johnson, McLean (and even McFadden, if gets match fit, and Larsson). Gives several permutations. Also have Ji and Noble out on loan as prospectives if make the grade). Squad overall is developing. Can concentrate on rebuilding defence in summer and adding more quality creativity in midfield.

Believable17 Unbelievable1

We needed to add creativity in midfield in january and last summer. But our manager didnt.

Agree4 Disagree1

We are crying out for a couple of creative midfield players, baffling why O'neill hasn't brought any in

Agree2 Disagree2

N'ydiae, Johnson, sessegeon, Mcclean aren't they creative midfielders ??

Agree9 Disagree1

Cant believe we haven't signed a right back or creative midfielder

Agree1 Disagree1

Has the transfer window shut now? No? THENTTHERE'S STILL TIME!! Everyone whinging we've not got this and that, but its not over!

Agree4 Disagree0

"Johnson, sessegeon, Mcclean aren't they creative midfielders ?"
they have done nothing all season.

Agree3 Disagree3

31 Jan 2013 14:31:19
Now that Danny Graham has signed let's ALL get behind the lad and give him our full backing.
Just because he supported the mags does not mean he is a bad footballer. As long as he gives 100% for us what does it matter?
Remember there is a statue of an ex Sunderland manager outside the SoL who not only supported the mags, he played for them also!
I have faith in our manager and he will get the best out of Graham. I can see him scoring against Newcastle in April. Keep the faith.

Believable15 Unbelievable1

It's not the fact of him being a Geordie that is the issue with many people, it's the fact he slagged us off so publicly.

Agree5 Disagree2

He was young when he slagged us off

Agree10 Disagree4

I would luv 2 hear wot us sunderland supporters would say if we were asked the same question as Danny graham Woz asked, all he did Woz tell the truth ! Time 2 stop bein small minded and get behind the lad because wen he pulls that red and white shirt on he's a sunderland player not a mag fan ! Jarra makem

Agree4 Disagree0

Well said. hell win over the fans after scoring a hatrick on saturday or better still against the Mags!. mind i'm dissapointed we didn't get Sissoko!

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 14:17:09
We haven't had a double figure scoring number 9 striker in a while. Lets hope Graham is the man. I know myself and 90% of the fans will be applauding you at the madejski on on Saturday.

Believable14 Unbelievable1

You think MON is going to start playing a 442? I don't.

Agree5 Disagree3

The lad now wears RED and WHITE so lets all forget about what he has said in the past and where he comes from and get 100% behind him!! However, if he does a Chopra, god help him!!!

Agree5 Disagree0

COME ON DANNY he wears our shirt so get behind the lad if yous don't you are not fans

Agree6 Disagree0

But will we play 2 up front now?

Agree3 Disagree0

He's mackem not tyne
He's mackem not tyne
Danny Graham
He's mackem not tyne

Agree1 Disagree1

Well after Graham knocks in a few goals hell silence the knockers!. great signing for the price!

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 14:08:59
Graham signed but tv says he will be the only player in. Hope that's not true, we need another midfielder at least and a right back.

Believable6 Unbelievable2

The only one in? Not usually a moaner but what about the defence? Hoylet linked but a no go? aaaaahhhhhh!!

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Jan 2013 13:48:52
Done deal all over Internet Danny Graham has signed for Sunderland (princey1995)

Believable7 Unbelievable1

31 Jan 2013 13:43:12
graham in i'm out on this one but will give him my backing don't believe in booing our own players have seen so many disapointments in my life to do that also my sons friend works at sol and he says 3 medicals were booked in for today thou has no idea who they could be

Believable4 Unbelievable0

31 Jan 2013 13:08:51
Just seen a picture of Graham with red and white on on . Looks like a done deal. The question now is will anybody else be coming in?

Believable0 Unbelievable0

David craig at aol states that danny graham will be only signing of the day the other player linked was junior hoilett but that's not going to happens so that's all for us today folks

Agree0 Disagree0

Mags up the road sign the likes of sissoko and debuchy whilst oneill has no plan at all. Pathetic, fed up of this hr needs to sign more GOOD players

Agree2 Disagree5

Getting boring listening to people whining about Mon, he's the best manager we've had while Iv been alive, who do you expect us to sign where a mid table club with no sign of European football paying average wages, a top player would have 20 clubs to chose before he came, the same for Newcastle every player they signed isn't wanted anywhere else if they were that good they would have gone to a top 4 club in any European leauge, so get a grip, grow up and support our great manager and club

Agree4 Disagree4

Was sissoko wanted by many top clubs even ours not long ago

Agree3 Disagree0

Not wanted anywhere else?? are you having a laugh. sissoko was labeled 30m two years ago, its a huge coup for the mags. wish we had the same ambition, we will never be any better than we are now. a mid table team getting scraps from other teams.

Agree1 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 12:56:15
there is a Leaked photo of Danny Graham in Sunderland shirt I would guess it is at the academy.

Believable0 Unbelievable0

31 Jan 2013 11:14:28
graham bid accepted how many think he will come after tuesday

Believable2 Unbelievable1

We DON'T want him. {Ed024's Note - Did you also not want Fletcher ?}

Agree2 Disagree7

With being a mag 6 or 7 games in does nothing then what. {Ed024's Note - He'll get a heard time - he needs to back himself that, that will not happen. We need to consider - what if Graham doesnt sign and Fletcher picks up an injury tomorrow ?}

Agree5 Disagree1

I wish some people would get a grip.
Get behind him not boo him.

Jeez.

Agree6 Disagree1

Yes most of us do want him it's just petty minded people like you who bood at the ground on Tuesday that dot because you can't see past the boundaries of a city! person!

Agree5 Disagree1

It's a gamble. If he scores goals everyone will love him. If he doesn't everyone will call him a Mag

Agree0 Disagree0

He said he's a gateshead fan anyway

Agree0 Disagree1

Forget where he was born and who he supported as a child. The major issue here is that we are signing a player who can not get a starting place for Swansea and who Middlesborogh feel is within their sights. Hardly an improvement!

Agree1 Disagree3

Surely your comment is fairly petty itself, instantly judging everyone who may not want him to come. I personally don't see it being a good deal for us, but obviously not giving him a fair chance if he comes is stupid.

Agree1 Disagree0

My comment is only towards the people who don't want him here because he is a mag, I completely understand some people might not rate him or might not be their type of player but I think he should be give a chance before anyone judges him! I think it's a fair comment don't you ?
Matty

Agree1 Disagree0

Yeah that's fair enough but I think a lot of the reaction he received was down to his comments about our club rather than where he is from. Let's face it we've had some good players for us from Newcastle, but none have bad mouthed us so publicly before signing.

Agree0 Disagree0

Yeah I agree, but you've got to remember he was goaded in to saying what he did by journalist and he was a young lad

Agree1 Disagree0

Wot would your reply be if you were asked the same question ?

Agree0 Disagree0

31 Jan 2013 10:05:00
tv have said graham's agent is at a hotel near our training ground waiting for us to agree a fee with swansea. Scharner has gone back to wigan. Safc93

Agree3 Disagree1

Agent denied that Graham going to boro, could still end up at sol

Agree3 Disagree0

Soap opera

Agree0 Disagree0

Itll be an interesting day as rumours about where Graham is going rumours will be flying all over the place. .he might even sign for Gateshead ! lol . .gutted Samba is going to QPR can we really buy these top players outside London !?

Agree1 Disagree0

The fact Graham hasn't signed yet that suggests he's looking at other offers ?. perhaps the booing on tuesday night has changed his mind ?. .we need some quality in the side some top signings to get the fans excited ! . much overdue at this club !

Agree2 Disagree1

31 Jan 2013 08:31:10
