The latest one is a return to the Sheffield United link which has done the rounds several times over the last year or so. Sheffield United's chairman Kevin McCabe has re-stated that it would take a massive bid to tempt the Blades to sell Phil Jagielka.

Great news about Delaney. Still think he's twice as good as Hughes and we need Mellberg back in the middle asap.

Totally agree. The sooner Delaney's back the better! All our injured players at the moment are guaranteed starters. (Sorenson, Laursen, Delaney and Moore) it's ******* frustrating.

Agreed, we've got certain starters sidelined that would all improve our lot were they fit and available. Lets not forget that when we start moaning and complaining that we're 'only' eighth in the premiership.

Agree with you all. Delaney may have had more than his share of injury problems but I think on his day he is as good as any right back in the premiership.

Still feel we absolutely have to bring in a right full back this January. Number one problem position.
