  1. I don't know the exact specifics of the agreement but if we can attract Tony Pulis here with a proposal to pay off his 3.77m High Court judgement case then we should have funds available for players.
  2. QPR striker formerly of Bristol City and Leeds, same agent as Luke Freeman.
  3. We are not in for Crouch but there has been an inquiry for Matt Smith along with Marc Roberts
  4. We made an inquiry about the availability of Marc Roberts on Friday. If Batth and his agent were in Stoke during the middle of last week after permission from Wolves you would expect we should announce a replacement very soon.
  5. I have always thought Clayton was wasted at the Boro. When he was at Leeds and Hudders he was played much further up the field and scored 17 goals in 4 seasons and was effective going forward. In comparison in a deeper role he has been here for 5 seasons and scored just the 1 goal.
  6. FWIW. -Cardiff made an enquiry about Britt earlier in the window, it did not go anywhere. -We made an enquiry regarding Jordan Ibe a couple of weeks ago, doesnt look like its going anywhere now.
  7. I would like to wish Tony a Happy Birthday today, 61 years young.
  8. Grant had agreed to join Sunderland based on the principle of them surviving in the Championship, upon relegation to League One that deal was off.
  9. I have heard from a few individuals that Gibson was prepared to pay off the full amount Pulis owed in staged payments for him to come here this time but we will never know. He was desperate to have Pulis here and had tried twice in the past post Stoke and during his time at WBA.
  10. I wouldnt have hired him to be responsible for overseeing the restructuring of our club based on his court case https://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/nov/28/tony-pulis-crystal-palace-appeal
  11. Dont want to be too negative after some of our displays so far this season but 33% possession and 13 shots (just 3 on target) to Bristol City's 18? We will not get away with that for too long.
  12. A few soaking wet beds across Teesside tonight.
  13. Less soaked pyjamas and beds tonight if we keep up this performance.
  14. Via Waccoe - Reporter Phil Hay saying through a DM Leeds management are convinced they can sell the Bielsa project/philosophy to Besic and finalize a deal before the end of the window.
  15. He sanctioned a deal for a 31 year old Downing for a transfer fee of up to 7m (5.5m but rising to 7m if we achieved promotion) and wages of 70k a week for 4 years, total outlay of close to 21.56m+ not including promotion bonus etc...
  16. Reportedly Leeds were very close to finalizing a deal for Oliver Norwood. They were in discussions with Everton regarding a defender called Pennington and during discussions about other players Everton advised there has been no progress from us regarding Besic so although Norwood is nearly sealed they are holding off until closer to deadline in order to force through a deal for Mo.
  17. Including an additional parachute payment of approximately 35m.
  18. It was reported on Twitter Wolves offered 18m in installments for Traore plus Danny Bathh but we rejected.
  19. Graeme Bailey ‏ Verified account @GraemeBailey 13m13 minutes ago More Graeme Bailey Retweeted TEAMtalk ?This one should be put to bed in next 48 hours...Graeme Bailey added, TEAMtalk @TEAMtalk ? EXCLUSIVE ? Middlesbrough’s Adama Traore will join Wolves before the transfer deadline but it will cost them more than his £18m release clause.
  20. This has been an ongoing rumour for a while. Rafa needs to sell to bring in. Stoke were interested and the price was 15m with 80k a week wages. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/football/2018/06/28/stoke-middlesbrough-battle-newcastles-15m-rated-wing-matt-richie/
  21. Not heard anything regarding Rodwell but Cattermole interest is firm and the hold up with him leaving them is money. If we are wanting Sunderland players then Bryan Oviedo would be an interesting choice (World Cup LB) as back up.
  22. He can cope with living in the north east so that appears to be a big thing for some reason. I think we'd be better looking elsewhere. Agreed. I don't see the link though especially considering we were dealing with the Mackems over the McNair transfer. Perhaps Hull's recent interest has revived interest.
  23. Appears to be some talk that we are interested in bringing back Lee Cattermole. He had asked his agent Margaret Byrne (She was Director at Mackems) for a move prior to pre-season. Interest from Hull City and it seems someone within our club still has a liking for him as we were linked with him in 2016 during Allardyce era. Not in the Sunderland squad today.
  24. There will be lots of pyjamas in the wash tonight with all this bed wetting.
  25. 30 games last season, 3 goals and 2 assists. Re-occuring ankle injuries. I will reserve judgement but certainly plays in a position we need options in.
