Thread: Rumour of the day thread

  1. #1

    Rumour of the day thread

    Ok I think itís time we have a thread dedicated to daily transfer rumours

    Players name
    How likely it is to happen
    Whether we rate the player: pros
    Whether we dislike the player : cons
    Conclusion


    I will start us off

    Salamon Rondon
    Likely to want to come (relegated wba need the money)
    Pros: big and strong ,prem ready ( £16m buyout)
    Cons: has he enough quality to be our top target?
    Conclusion itís a no from me

    Great thread! I tried one a while back which didn't work out, hopefully we can keep this going.

    First of all, hope we don't sign Rondon!

    My rumour of the day/week:
    - Marcus Rashford.
    - Very unlikely to happen (even if he does go on loan, which is highly doubtful, why would it be with us?)

    Pros: Fast, can stick a goal in, will want to prove himself, more technical ability than anybody in our current squad.
    Cons: Can't really find any, except he seems like a player who has to have good players around him to perform optimally, and I'm not sure we can provide that.

    Conclusion: I doubt we could attract Rashford, and I doubt he will go out on loan.

    The con to this one would be, this time next year, we would still need to buy a striker (and prices will be higher still)

    da bost

    been at least two weeks since we were rumoured to have made a bid

    i like this player
    his club are in trouble

    could happen

    no cons really other than trying o convince him to comehere and play under rafa

    mind we doo need a lot of under 23 players

    not sure of his age though

    If rashford is made available on loan then he MIGHT come to us! Manure are not going to let him go to another of the, " big six." So who does that leave? US, Everton, West ham...

    Good thread, I have nobody new to add but in regards Rondon and Rashford.

    Rashford i think would be great, i also think there is very little chance of it happening.
    Rondon i think we would stand a good chance and he can play in prem, he's done 3 seasons.

    Still can't make up my mind on Rondon.

    As a second striker I think he'd be canny. As our number one I'd be disappointed.

    I was thinking the same (assuming you mean Rondon) but there again, i thought that when we replaced £35m Aunty Carole with Demba Ba..... how wrong was I back then?

    He's terminated his contract at Sporting tonight apparently.

    Will be available on a free.

    As have 4 other players.

    I will make up your mind for you Jammy! Always liked Newcastle, but would not wish this useless lump on you - he's that ****e!

    Positives - he holds the ball up well
    Negatives - he really could not score in a brothel as someone needs to paint a picture of two vertical white posts and one landscape and say - shoot the ball in between them you useless c unt.

    For 16 million, I would drive the useless piece of crap in my own car with a decorated ribbon! Don't just take my word for it - see our board as the majority think he's ****e just like Barry and Livermore.

    Our best players are Dawson, Hegazi, Foster and Jay R.

    Honestly, we could have survived had we had a decent striker who knew where the goal was!

    Best of luck next year!

    Cheers, Al. Hope you get back at the first shot.

    It's funny what supporters of other teams make of your players. i'd always thought he was decent but after what you've said I'll be gutted if we get him

    And, aye-Jay Rodriguez is a good player.

    Well...or so I thought.

    Jay R is really decent Zippity and no doubt will leave! I would not pay washers though for Rondon and Barry and Livermore is totally overated. Had we had a decent forward who knew where the goal was ( not Rondon ) we may have stayed up, and that tool Pardew spent 4 million by gambling on Sturridge, which was never going to work with his injury record.

    Rafa will again progress you further this year so best wishes

    I'd second that any day. I don't think there's any club in the Prem and now the Championship with supporters who think along similar lines and respect one another as much as the Baggies and ourselves. With respect to Dagenham John and his mates I'd say, in my humble opinion West Ham are also close.

    This may be worh a new thread.
