Ed is this roberto de fanti stuff just bull or is there some truth there? {Ed001's Note - he is definitely working for the club, yes. On what basis is not entirely clear, it could just be a consultancy role, similar to the one Joorabchian enjoyed at the Hammers, enabling him to bring in Mascherano and Tevez. Doncaster had a similar thing going on just before they got relegated from the Championship too.}

If there's any truth in this. Probably not

Possible team?


Rose (6/8m)?
Bassong/Scott Dann 4m?
Andre Wisdom 3m Loan?

Malone/Sinclair 5/7m?
Cattermole. will hopefully play back to back games at some point in the season
Huddlestone/ Henderson?! heard he was available last window (downing too) but no offers made



Worth a look?!
Wes Hoolahan
Mcarthur/ Mcmanaman. if wigan finally run out of lives!

Agree2 Disagree6

Only player i'd take fromWigan is Mahloney

Agree0 Disagree4

Hear from internal sources that sunderland is monitoring the following centre backs
1. Onyekachi Apam - 26yr old from rennes
2. Dragovic - 26yr old from Basel but appartently everton & arsenal also interested in this lad - he's looked fantastic when I've seen him in europe so might struggle if against these 2 teams

Agree2 Disagree0

I'd take Maloney, mcmanaman and do Santo tbh

Agree1 Disagree2

I'd have McManaman, Gomez and Koné from Wigan tbh

Agree0 Disagree0

Michu for 9m?

Agree0 Disagree0

has someone put something in the water for sunderland fans. some of the post being put on here about certain players they would like to see at the sol have got me scratching my head. these are comments usually associated for our deluded friends from the toon. if you fancy some of these players to come to the sol please wait till we are safe. then think about reality who we are going to sign. with the new rules coming out next season we won't be seeing any marquee signings as we can't match the wages. I think pdc will have his eyes on a few players from the lower leagues who he has noted while being at Swindon also with his Italian connections we might see a few younger players coming from Italy but no major names. to balance the books a lot of work will be needed we can't move a lot of plaers on as the squad is not big enough and some of the players we have are on too big a wage for us to bring in players on similar wages.

E. g adebayor, lamela, sigurdsson, sow, negredo, rodrigo, tut tut tut too much fifa

Agree6 Disagree3

Only thing that is deluded is your daily wish list. Stick it on your Christmas list you have more chance of Santa delivering them than Ellis.

Agree4 Disagree2

Ellis has said he will go deep in his pockets this summer

Agree5 Disagree4

Adebayor is sh*t
We can't go looking for players unproven in the higher leagues
We must go for players in these leagues
BPL, French league, Bundesliga, Spanish league, Italian league, Dutch league and possibly the championship

Agree7 Disagree1

I think we should target
Joao Pereira/Valencia
Abdoulay Konko/Lazio
Micah Richards/Man City

Modibo Diakite/Lazio
Vedren Corluka
Christopher Samba/QPR
Bruno Ecuele Manga
Davide Astori


Mohamed Sissoko/Florientina
Yoann Gourcuff/Lyon
Siem de Jong/Ajax
Skilley Muntari/Milan

Jay Rodriquez/ Southampton
Mattia Destro/Roma
Alfred Finnbogason/Heerenveen

Obviously just a bunch of them:
For me it would be, Joao pereira, Modibo Diakite, Davide Astori, Rose, Tom Huddlestone, Granero, finnbogason, Destro

Believable2 Unbelievable9

Oh and Malhoney/Wigan

Agree1 Disagree5

For me it would be Rb - Richards Cb - diakité and roberge Lb - rose CM - Huddlestone and Nathan dyer st - bony and finnbogason/le fondre/Remy/Rodriguez

Agree2 Disagree2

Too many strikers there
Can't pay too much if they won't start

Agree5 Disagree0

Samba is on 100k a week.
Short may get out his cheque book but he won't pay those sort of wages.
Nor do I blame him.

Agree2 Disagree0

Wb Guidetti? He looks like a decent prospect and he has no chance of getting into the City starting XI any time soon!

Agree1 Disagree0

We should go for Shaun Maloney great skilful player

Believable15 Unbelievable2

A lot of wasted talent in some relegation clubs eg
QPR- taarabt, Remy, samba, townsend (loaned I know)
Reading -McCleary, le fondre (sub), pogrebnyak, McCarthy (gk)
Wigan- mcmanaman, maloney, di santo, al habsi, McCarthy, mcarthur

We should go for a few of these IMO.
My favs- di Santo- taarabt-mccleary and remy

Hearing our director of football enquired about Edison cavahni who is valued at 50m. He was never going to come but it means mr short is prepared to put his hand in his pocket. Expect some strange enquiries this transfer window

Believable4 Unbelievable3

Don't think we have a director of football yet. According to the papers we're about to appoint an italian soon. Safc93

Agree3 Disagree2

Where did you hear that mad max

Agree2 Disagree1

Your right it says in the chronicle and express we have but it's paper talk its ambitious

Agree2 Disagree2

We do safc93 his name is roberto de fanti

Agree5 Disagree2

Never knew we appointed him already, must be going to spend big in the summer. Safc93

Agree1 Disagree2

This actually made my lol. Cavani? 50mil on one player? Have a day off eh

Agree2 Disagree1

Hearing our director of football, so you heard him but don't know his name, was this in a back lane. If you actually wrote this thinking someone might believe anything you have wrote, stop we dont

Agree2 Disagree1

Absolutely no way it will happen, but Max is right, it's a good sign of ambition
