    I can see this thread descending into the usual 'core' group sharing in jokes and wind-ups. While the rest f us want to see the genuine rumours and info. It's not even June yet and the lunatics have taken over the asylum

    A 35 year old guy who was on the peripheral of going to the world cup.

    He’s on 130,000 a week down in England and has 2 years left on his deal so if he’s coming which I highly doubt it’s not for a last pay packet it’s to play and win stuff.

    My apologies, I must say, from his defensive duties and even going forward, this boy looks an exciting talent and in my mind, if you're good enough, you're old enough. Look at that young boy, Harry Cochrane, there would have to be a reason Rangers would be linked to someone that exciting, plus Gerrard highly rated him. It's how a boy like that would cope playing in front of 50,000. Nonetheless, exciting times ahead.

    The funny thing being that Miller scored 21 goals when he was 35, and is far poorer than Defoe...

    FWIW i dont want a team full of OAPs but chances are we will have a few old heads in the team to balance out youth.

    What planet do some folk live on man? Jermaine Defoe would bang goals in up here when he’s 75 ffs!
    He’d run amok up here, 35 or not. The issue might just be his absolutely astronomical wage demands.
    However, if it was to somehow happen, let’s not kid ourselves on that it’s somehow a poor signing.

    I'm trying to remain calm and keep a level head but Gerrard is going to win the treble and Europa League, isn't he?

    I've shot my load at this thread and it's barely even started.

    Hope we don't put a clause in Defoe's contract to play when fit like we did with Russell Martin. It can clearly have a very negative effect on the team if he's ever out of form.

    See if he plays a part in winning the title who gives a %^*& what age he is?

    Comparing 35 year old Defoe to 37 year old Miller is absolutely ridiculous by the way.

    There's a fair mix of age and experience in our reported targets so far, eh?

    We're going from Lucas, Defoe, Skrtel and McGregor to Lewis, Wilson, Goldson, McGinn, McBurnie and Kamara.

    I doubt we're after all of the above, but I wouldn't be concerned about a team of over-30s. We'll have a good balance I reckon.

    Defoe I’d be delighted about but I can’t see him taking a wage cut of at least £70k a week to come to us

    TBF its become quite common for high profile players that age to be faced with the following choice

    1) Take a massive wage cut but still play competitive football
    2) Go on a jaunt somewhere abroad, raking in the money with little effort

    You think they'll work well as a pair or maybe as a front three with Morelos?

    I’m sure at the very least he’s a better option than Hodson.

    I do love these threads and don't quite understand people getting annoyed at it as they don't believe the names mentioned.

    Defoe though? Come on???? Surely not?

    Look at Tierney for Celtic, I feel there's so many great young talent we can take advantage of down south who are not getting into the first team that we can exploit. I think he'd do well and you're spot on about that, he's a definite upgrade to Hodson.

    Actually burst out laughing seeing cunts turning their nose up at Defoe, what planet do some ppl live on? Would score a barrowload without a doubt! And btw there is no Bournemouth player earning 100 grand a week.

    True or false isnt relevant, if you're turning your nose up at the prospect of Jermaine Defoe, you need your head looked at.

    Brighton supporters talking about Goldson as a replacement for Dunk next season.

    Must be of decent calibre as Dunk is a cracking CB.

    Another planet, it's no different to some who turned their nose up at Fernando Torres, the same Torres who this season was still scoring goals in a top league. Honestly, if we get players of that ilk, you can guarantee there would be 20+ goals in there. Morelos will have quality around him finally. I would love to see these sort of players come in.

    %^*& it...

    I wouldn't want Defoe he likely would be on wages kicking the arse of 50k a week ...thats got admin all over it - some things are more important.

    As an aside the deal to take him to Bournemouth was a 20 million package they aren't fucking that off after a year.

    I have watched plenty of him. He was good against boro. He' 33 however. He's nowhere close to the same force he was going forward. I think we can get young full back who we can sell on who offers more. Hutton is a lazy lazy transfer target.

    McGregor is different. 36 is fine for a keeper and a good goalie is hard to come by.
