  1. craving some confirmation of this :D has it not been on SSN at all? I'm at work just scouting through a few sites and it's top headline on Boro's Sky Sports page. Thought it would have already been mentioned in here!
  2. I'd like to think I know a load about football, but I've never heard of Vossen :D Just looked at his scoring record and it is immense though!
  3. Middlesbrough have made a deadline day move for Belgium international striker Jelle Vossen, Sky sources understand. The 24-year-old is currently with Genk, who are hopeful of keeping their prize asset, but Boro have made a late bid to try and lure him to England. Celtic had been linked with a move but a deal failed to materialise and now Boro are hoping that a late swoop could be in the offing. Sky Sports understand that Boro have tabled a bid close to £4million for Vossen as they look to bolster their strike-force ahead of a push for Premier League promotion. Despite Boro not being in the top flight it is understood that Vossen would be willing to make the move if a deal could be struck between the two clubs. The North East outfit failed with a £2million bid for Leeds striker Ross McCormack late last month and Tony Mowbray is desperate to get a top striker in before the window closes. Meanwhile, it is understood the Riverside club have fended off interest in captain Rhys Williams on deadline day, with Wigan a*** those keen on the Australia international. just getting the story onto the latest page!

  5. http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11680/8903117/transfer-deadline-day-middlesbrough-bid-for-belgium-striker-jelle-vossen bid for Vossen, £4m?!! never heard of him!
  6. hopefully two strikers that he'll donate to Boro :D
  7. I seen that and was gutted. Hopefully he's had a rethink after (seemingly) all of our top targets have gone elsewhere. Him or Becchio are the two best, and most realistic striker signings we could make today. It's ludicrous that we're not even interested in Sharp.
  8. LUFC Official ‏@Agent_TwP 16h BREAKING NEWS...The club has agreed a deal to bring clinical goal scorer Billy Sharp to the club on a season long loan. #lufc is it possible to hate this club anymore That's not official Leeds mate! I've got everything crossed that we are in for Sharp today.
  9. always good to judge Twitter accounts like that soccer_sauce on their amounts of followers - they've got over 3k which shows they must get some things right (in my mind anyway! :D) - please get Billy Sharp! They've also just posted that Chris Baird is at QPR's training ground, a very good signing for them if so. Good defender.
  10. hilarious trying to read this forum at work, all looks innocent until Prowlers sig :D :D
  11. Ah that's a shame. Understandable though, he's unreal. He's always said he'd like to come back at some point though, but obviously wants to keep himself in the Prem! Would love for us to go up and get him back. A real quality player, and if he was coming through at any other time he would have been kept on. He was gutted when he had to leave.
  12. I know Brunt and know people who are even closer to him than me - we've made no enquiry whatsoever and he has been getting regular interest from other Prem clubs for a good few seasons now. If he was ever available, the only chance of him coming back is if we were promoted.
  13. don't think I've ever seen Butterfield play even one minute of football. I remember hearing about him a few years back, supposedly the next big thing etc. Is he actually any good?
  14. Deulofeu is on loan from Barca to Everton mate - great player! Just seen this on the BBC.. "We've been asked how much money Southampton will make from the Gareth Bale transfer. The answer is absolutely nothing. Saints did have a 25% sell-on clause in the deal to sell Bale to Tottenham, but is was renegotiated when the south-coast club were in deep financial trouble. As part of the new deal, Saints got Spurs goalkeeper Tommy Forecast. Daniel Levy is some sort of arch-negotiator." ouch!
  15. That's probably going to be the exact reason why we don't get Dawson. Can you see one of three quality centre backs being happy to sit on the bench? I can't. And if all are fit Woody and Rhys are always going to be first choice. Dawson will know this and that's why I can't see it happening. He would get his fair share of games. There is no way Woody can play every single game, he'll probably play just over half imo. Dawson is still only young - having the chance to train and learn from somebody as good as Jonny Woodgate should be a big lure for any young centre half.
  16. I would absolutely love us to get Dawson. Was gutted we missed out on him when he left Rochdale after being after him. He's quality and really shone for Bolton last season. We'd have three top, top centre halves if he signed.
  17. Scott Wilson covering all bases there :D Has he ever got anything right?
  18. Jacob Mellis has looked a good player to me when I've seen bits of him at Barnsley - have we been linked?
  19. Aaron Lennon?! Are Leeds mad :D If he's available then almost every team in the Prem will be in for him. I'd love to see us go for Sharp!
  20. Craig Dawson is an excellent centre half. I've seen quite a bit of him and really like him.
  21. whoever said deadline day should be a Bank Holiday - I've been thinking exactly the same! Sat at work today and will be refreshing every transfer related website every 2 minutes :D Really hope we get some bodies in today. I would love us to be in for Billy Sharp, and even if he's priced himself out a move before, things always change on deadline day. He'd be ideal to partner Juke. Don't like the look of that Kei Kamara - record in the MLS doesn't look good and he did *** all at Norwich last season. He's never played in the Championship before and has limited experience of even playing in this country. Not what we need at all, so he can go home please. I'm never really sure what to make of Vickers' info. I like him as a journo and like reading his blogs, but I've always had the thought that he gets told absolutely nothing regarding club business.
