Would love it to happen but Don't think it will, just a rumour but heard cardiff are wanting him now that warnock is staying

All it is is speculation that’s what makes it fun

Last year I blogged interest in Lucas, Defoe & Skrtel

Well Defoe arrived later & Skrtel scenario is up for debate

Speculation is all part of the fun

I have no doubts when we do move maybe one name will be known or have been mentioned, but majority will be done quickly & quietly especially if foreign


I enjoy the speculation and rumour, it’s what makes it fun, but that’s all it is :D
Give us some names, you know you want to. ;)

Why? No one cares as long as we pump filth and win silverware.
I can’t see us investing in a recruitment team & our two main strikers are on loan from down south. Short termism that could be achieved without a recruitment team.

Gray would be a quality signing hopefully we can pull it off.

As for Welbeck he's lost some pace but if he can stay fit and clear of injury we have a very good player on our hands although he would have to take some pay cut to join he is on more than £100,000 a week at Arsenal so I can't really see it happening mainly due to financial reasons more than anything else.

He's unemployed in 6 weeks....

Can’t see us having our 2 main strikers as loanees, one coming to the end of his career & the other no chance of getting permanent.

Super player though.
Not such a bad move if we're intent on the likes of Rudden, Mebude or McPake eventually stepping in. Gives them time to develop a bit more without spending too much on a striker they would be stuck behind for a while.

I love the speculation also. I remember back in the day been linked with Ronaldo the fat Brazilian in his prime Ronaldo, Bergkamp. Juwst because you do not sign these guys does not mean its not fun at the time. We ended up with that Russian dumpling from the world cup who was slower than Kevin Kyle.

I know but at his age he knows he will need to take a hefty cut in wages and I suspect a club will give him near what his Arsenal wage is a free transfer or not no way will he look for our kind of high wage when he will easily get double or triple it down south.

A very good point.

If inter hadnt come in we woulda had fat Ronaldo due to Nike with their crazy contract they were cutting with the club

Would love gray he could easily be a leading striker for any of the 6-20pl teams. I woulda said his first season at Burnley he could even have gotten into the liverpool or Chelsea first team back then. Even if we don't get him it's good to know the club are looking at this calibre of player

We get these rumours every year. They’re usually confirmed by ITK posters every year too.

It’s fun to speculate and I really appreciate them offering up names, but reality tells us it’s nonsense. Gray is going to be this year’s Lucas Leiva, van Persie, Nani, Berahino or Abraham.[/QUOTE

Abraham almost happened mate,it was the loan fee that was felt to be too steep so we bought Joe Garner with the money instead.

Crazy decision in hindsight.

He has had 1 prolific season and although I would welcome him, the money for him is questionable.

I would be more interested in the striker from Helsinki
Vertainen has had zero prolific seasons. Looked decent against us but thats about the story of his season so far.

If Wellbeck is out of contract and willing to take a dip in wages, quite a dip in wages then I would take a chance on him. Andre Gray, I can't see happening unless Watford are letting him go on loan for some bizarre reason.
