I'm not saying I'm dying to have him back but he would not be a terrible signing. He's been Sunderland's most consistent performer season after season, their fans believe without him they would have been relegated in each and everyone of their relegation fights.

Results from his last 5 PL campaigns:

 

Appearances - 117

Goals - 1

Assists - 0

Yellow cards - 38

 

Not the player for a team with a solid defence looking to bolster their creative options.

We can't go into the season with only Clayton and Leadbitter as our defensive midfield options.

 

De Sart is one for the future. Not sure on Forshaw.

 

We need another option.

I don't think Cattermole is a step forward though.. More of a step sideways

James Morrison can do the holding job more similarly to Leadbitter, bringing the ball forwards, distributing and providing a threat from outside the box. Cattermole has become a hatchet man and is IMO a poor man's Clayton. 

 

I'd be hoping we loan out De Sart, sign an English and/or Premier League experienced midfielder in the mold of Morrison if not himself.

 

Totally agree with you that we need options, I just disagree that Cattermole is the option we do need.

Fair enough.

 

I want to see someone in the mould of Imbula/Kouyate. Big, strong, fast.

With the Vermeer link, Karanka was in Holland on Saturday looking at a player.

 

How do you know this?

 

Lurker is somewhat ITK, if I recall correctly.

 

(Some people believe him to be Anthony Vickers.)

 

I'm not ITK or AV, I get bits of info. From different people all with links to the club. 

 

Anything I pass on is 2nd hand info. 

 

I was told he was in Holland to see a CB, could be to do a deal. 

 

Then with the Vermeer link I was putting 2 & 2 together

 

Timo Letscher would fit the moneyball style signings we've made.

I read quite a while ago someone linking us to Sven Van Beek (CB for Feyenoord) on Twitter, in January I think it was.

 

A suggestions of CM/CDM's...How about.... Ward-Prowse, Huddlestone, Howson, Livermore, Flamini (already linked), Besic, Anita, Sidwell, Colback.

 

All have Premier League experience.

I pray we don't go anywhere near Cattermole, at best a very average player and that's being kind to him.

Not sure the source of this or how true it is... But a guy that used to work (MANY MOONS AGO) for the media team on BORO TV has been told there may not be too much truth in the James Morrison link and it maybe mistaken for a 12 month loan deal with a view to by for Ravel Morrison. Now i for one am a little unsure due to his previous behavior and to be honest i haven't followed him that much since his move to Lazio.

Im only sharing a rumour i have heard!!!

Didn't know he was still playing but I sincerely doubt it.

 

Skrtel though, I'd take.

    • Adomah, Grant and Stuani would make a difference. Tuncay looked the part but as a club I felt we never really benefited from him to his maximum potential. The little fella is an obvious but he would be clogged to death in the Championship so Merse would be a better option. Traore was fast and exciting but that was it, he reminded me of one of those Burlesque dancers, plenty of teasing but nothing to show for it despite all those twirling tassels and mesmerization.
    • The Evening Gazette will surely report on the story soon. It’ll be another opportunity to reiterate for the hundredth time that no one wants to buy us and how we should be eternally happy to have Steve Gibson in charge of us. After all, it has been a good few weeks since their tongue was that deep in there.
    • I’m going to be cheeky and suggest a player from each manager in my recent time.   McClaren era = Gareth Southgate - a leader and a rock at the back. Mr dependable. Southgate era =  toss up between Johnson or Woodgate, but I’d have to say Woodgate for the same as Southgate. Oozed class and as much as I can’t stand him from his stint as manager. I can’t take away his defending quality. Special mention to Johnson for his natural width and quality at this level. Strachan era = Barry Robson. Hard working and always put a shift in. Not dripping with quality but the best of a horrendous recruitment period. Seriously, go back and have a look at some of the names...if you dare. Mowbray era = tough between grant or George. Both got at great prices and both did terrific work over their time with boro. Maybe Leadbitter shades it for his leadership ability which I feel friend lacked this season. Karanka era = Clayton in his prime. Played the holding midfield role to a t. Always felt like he had more to offer going forward but his responsibility reduced his impact further up. But I’d still say a Clayton in his prime with us is streets ahead of what we had this season.    Monk era = Braithwaite. I’m coming round to the idea that Pulis painted him out to be a bit of a snake and it’s not actually true. Sure he could have worked harder and fought for the shirt a bit more, but playing Pulis ball didn’t suit him and rightly so, he called him out on it. He had good quality though and how a team of Braithwaite, Bamford and Britt didn’t get us promoted is criminal.    Pulis era = Traore. When it was good, wow it was amazing. I’ve never seen a player as explosive and good at dribbling than him at boro. And we never will either. I also love how he grew under Pulis and was a player who you really wanted it to click for.     
    • I'm with Wilson, I'm a tuncay stan. I think if I had to pick someone who would make the most DIFFERENCE right now though...hmm, that's tough, especially if you can't pick TLF.  Gaston would bring creativity that we need. Traore is always a good answer too... And I can't believe I'm saying this because I mocked him for being nothing more than a shouty man, but we need Grant Leadbitter and his shouty man attitude right now too.
