David Brooks scores in final of Toulon Cup, and is named man of the tournament.

Does this mean he will become a transfer target?

Will he still go out on loan to Chesterfield as planned, or stay at BL?

Pretty sure the deal with Chezzy's done mate. I hope we have a recall clause from January!

Hi there,  Can anyone tell me that if CW signs this Celtic guy Mackay Stevens..Will we have lost interest in Ricky Holmes? Or even the Southend guy..I seem to be lost in midfielders and wingers  and wingers postions at the moment- Hope someone can fill me in.. No thanks Lings- ;D :^^

Saigon: Leonard's a defensive midfielder, a bit like Monty but with a pass/shot, and I can see a need for someone like him. Mackay-Stevens is generally thought of as a winger, hopefully for the other side to where Thomas plays, and Ricky Holmes can play the "Number 10" role to great effect.

On that basis, CW's probably after all three!

Quality signing but is he just gonna be cover for Freeman? I don't think Freeman put a foot wrong this season and is certainly one of the squad I'd have said was capable of playing at Championship level. Is Baldock any better?

Think he just wants 2 good players for every position mate. I'd certainly start with Freeman.

I agree with Lings.  Assuming Brayford isn't coming back, we're a bit thin at Right Back (or were).

Someone touted Brayford as a possible CB but I can't see it personally, I think his days are numbered.  Although I find it a bit strange that there's very little mention of him either by Burton or us...

Seems to have been confirmed that Maguire has joined Leicester for 17m.  We sold him for 3m, so Hull's profit is 14m and we get 10% of that, so 1.4m.

Now what we need is Walker to Man City for 60m as rumoured and, assuming his part of the Naughton/Walker deal cost Spurs 3m, then we could get another 5.7m there.

We apparently get 7m in TV money and we've sold 5m worth of season tickets. So by my reckoning CW's war chest is now at about 19m... Yeah, right...  )O( :whi

Daniel Levy will sell Walker for a "disclosed" figure way below what he actually gets, or the fee will be split into various other "non purchase fee" elements. He has form for this type of shenanigans so I wouldn't hold your breath. We'll certainly get a payment, but probably nearer £1.5m - £2m than £5m

Scougs joins St Johnstone

Always loved Scougall, hoped he could have done well with CW but ultimately it wasn't to be. He gave us a great moment at Wembley, and a massive laugh when that Bradford dude picked him up and bodyslammed him for "being annoying".

All the best Scougs, only 24, still time for him.

Spurs need to sell Walker now because Everton will certainly want a fee for Jagielka  :whi

Now that we're in the Championship the number of fake sports news accounts on Twitter seem to have quadrupled, along with the bullshit rumours they push as real stories...

So far, yesterday alone, I've seen fake news suggesting:

  • Jags return is a done deal
  • Jags agreed personal terms
  • Jags had a medical at the Lane
  • Jags just had to agree personal terms
  • Maguire coming on loan whilst Leicester re-orginaise their squad
  • DCL coming on season long loan
  • 2.5m bid for Kemar Roofe accepted by dirty Leeds
  • Ward in from Rovrum in player + cash deal involving Done

Bear in mind these are actual headlines and links to actual real looking news stories, with headlines, photo, dodgy sources the lot.  Some sad people go to a lot of effort to get clicks.

I think I'll just have faith in Chris Wilder and see what happens.

I read that CW did approach Everton and Jags but the wages would be the stumbling block. Let's face it, Jags is more likely to go to one of the relegated PL teams, or a smaller PL team, they have the money for his wages and we don't. We have to remember they would impact on us with our wage bill and the fair play rules.
