Live - Transfer deadline day

posted Aug 31, 2010

Just heard through the grapevine that a deal for a certain Man City forward will not be going after talks collapsed. Sources close to the club said they 'ad-e-bayor'(had-a-buyer...) but unfortunately they pulled out last minute.'

Why is no-one after Gervinho from the Ivory Coast, easily the most impressive "unknown" player at the World Cup.

I know that Tom Daley was very close to signing for Arsenal last year.

Just wondered if the young diver has reignited any embers on this deal?

AC Milan to sign Robinho?

That would give them Imbrahimovic, Pato, Ronaldinho and Robinho up front which although supremely talented as an outfit is also the laziest front line I can recall, can anyone think of a previous front line less likely to track back?

Mamady Sidibe from Stoke FC is apparently flying out to real madrid to thrash out a deal worth a reported cool £120million plus add-ons.

Are Portsmouth still under a transfer embargo? Or are they just missing the last chance to expand their tiny squad using the miracle of free transfers? (At last count there were around 600 'free' players looking for a new club)

Sorry, Arsenal don't take divers. Wouldn't he be better at Chelsea to partner drogba or Man Utd to partner Rooney? If so, then We may have some sure gold medal winners in 2012!

I'm so glad the Hunterlaar transfer has been done so early in the day!
I can recount the last two transfer windows (atleast) where he has been seemingly seen everywhere - Madrid, Liverpool, at the Emirates, in people's living rooms etc.

Don't think deals for uncontracted players are affected by the window.

AC Milan have finally signed Robinho after he failed a medical and passed the required personality test.
He will recieve 120,000 euros a week, with doughnuts promised if he scores more than 10 goals.

I run a mobile Burger van in Southhampton and last night, just as I was about to close up, who should wander up but former Deutchland Under-21 wŁnderkind Fabian Ernst!!

He asked for Weinerschnitzel with extra gravy on the side, which he devoured in record time. Talk about German efficiency!

Could the tough tackling midfielder soon be on his way to The Dell?! Unlikely - As Southhampton have played at St.Mary's since 2001!!

Alan Smith agrees to wage cut to go back to Leeds. Howson talks stalling the deal at present.
Also Woodgate loan agreed with Spurs paying wages until he is fit and plays a first team game, then Leeds will pay 30% of his wages - deal until December.

Middlesbrough need 5 players today if we are to go up, i expect us out miss out on an average scottish player then be lied to by the club (again) about how we "just missed" a number of "top targets".
New season, same story. We havent had a winger at the club since we sold Johnson (and he was the only winger we had!) what a farce
