Thread eight on summer transfers, so over 2500 comments so far and no signings!

We have had one arrival during the last thread in the form of Brad Friedel and today we find out if Brad Guzan will be granted a work permit to come as well, maybe a few more are just around the corner as the moves are starting to happen now and that sets of a chain reaction... doesn't it?!
