January Transfer Window Talk 2

January Transfer Window Talk 2

Our previous January Transfer rumours thread got 219 comments and is now pretty much full January Transfer Window Talk so I've set up this new sticky to continue driving ourselves mad with links and gossip that we all know will probably come to nothing with total surprises arriving instead!

So far we have, amongst others, been linked to:

Goalkeeper: Matt Murray

Defenders: Richard Stearman, Greg Halford - Colchester, Phil Bardsley of Man Utd, Matthew Upson from Small Heath, Curtis Davies from West Bromwich Albion, Portsmouth right-back Andy Griffin, Oldham right-back Neil Eardley. Abel Xavier from Middlesbrough,

Midfielders: Joey Barton of Man City, James Milner of Newcastle, Shaun Wright-Phillips from Chelski, Zoltan Gera from WBA, Reading's Kevin Doyle. Ashley Young from Watford. Barry Ferguson from Rangers, Reo Coker from West Ham.

Strikers: David Nugent from Preston, Jermain Defoe and/or Robbie Keane from Spurs, Darren Bent from Charlton, Sean Maloney from Celtic, Freddy Eastwood from Southend, Kevin Davies from Bolton, Mark Viduka from Boro), Alan Smith from Manchester United, Craig Bellamy (old link from rumour thread), Peter Crouch from Liverpool, James Beattie from Everton, Marlon Harewood from West Ham.

And the list goes on...

So far in: Phil Bardsley, from Manchester United, on loan until the end of the season.

Interestingly enough we haven't been linked to many foriegn players from the foriegn leagues, apart from that striker the other day who's name I cant remember. Surely we've scouted the world in preparation for this transfer window?

Deano - MON has said he don't like the foreign players as they may not settle.

Sky has a piece on Baros. His parents have said that they were told on Christmas Eve by young Milan that Chelski were interested. His agent has said he can't go until Villa get a replacement.

gazvilla - also so like the bit where they said he told them not to say anything to anyone so they did not even tell his sister, only to then give an interview to SKY - pure quality.

I think we should go for nugent. Even though it could be a gamble he could turn out to have an effect like johnson has had at everton.

Theres loads of championship players out there who can make the grade. I think spurs only paid 1m for lennon and he's probably worth 20m now. Bent cost 2.5m now worth about 12, doyle 80k!! now going for 7...i could go on for ages. Im sure MON will find us some real gems given time.

The Nugent link - I see Warnock of Sheff Utd has pulled out saying Preston want him to stay and are asking stupid money and he's not worth the asking price.

Now i realise i aint the most patient person in the world, i was drinking my xmas bottle of Baileys on xmas eve!! However is anyone else getting bored of waiting for a signing (Bardsley dont count)? I realise these things take time and i think the clubs new owners and manager are fantastic, i just wish they would put us out of our misery!
