    I say no to Gravesen; he's a dressing room whiner, and we don't need that.

    His wife/girlfriend can transfer, however.

    Having lived through the Anna Benson Experience, I don't think we need that.

    Sanchez wants to sign Celtic's Gravesen

    Heeeeyyy Tommy Tommy! Tommy Tommy Tommy Tommy Gravesen!

    Link

    Little video, hehe

    I think this could be good, but the dude is kind of a loon, so who knows. I think for sheer entertainment factor, we should spend money on him.

    P.S. If he is signed, I am immediately spending the loot on getting a shirt with his name on the back. Immediately, without question.

    RE: Sanchez wants to sign Celtic

    Entertaining. The fact that they dedicated so much fun of him, makes me like him more.

    The Sky crawl just said we had a 1.5 million bid rejected by Watford for Darius Henderson.

    Talk about ridiculous! The first time I saw Darius Henderson I thought, he looks just like Chris Henderson but not as good. For non MLS watcher Chris Henderson isn't much good either. I have no idea why we'd being going after him.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    And Gravasen, he'd be an upgrade over Diop I figure.

    Watford just doesn't want us stealing any more of their players.

    I think I'm probably the only New York fan that actually liked Chris Henderson. Dude hustled non-stop, great winger, I don't care what anyone says . . . now his crosses, on the other hand, that's a different story.

    Apparently LS is in for a few more players as the transfer window is coming to a close.

    *Clubs including Everton, Fulham, Man City and Derby are scrambling to sign Celtic striker Kenny Miller. (Daily Mirror)

    *Fulham have had a £250,000 bid for Port Vale keeper Joe Anyon, 20, rejected. (Daily Mirror)

    *Out of favor Stuttgart striker, Ljuboja, joins Fulham on a trial this next week. He has reportedly turned down a deal with Siena and is desperate for a new club. (Sky Sports)

    I'm loving it. I am absolutely thrilled to see LS not willing to sit back and do nothing. This is a man with ambition and guts. I'd almost say he was a full blooded American if I knew he wasn't a Northern Irish look-alike to Buddy Holly.

    Nah, when he has his glasses on, he's a dead ringer for the Mo Green character from The Godfather.

    Quite possibly. I've never seen any of The Godfathers, so I wouldn't know.

    Rumors on this side of the pond say that we are selling Zat Knight to Villa for 3-4m!?

    Traore could still be on his way to us.

    Also, Koller from Germany is also still on the cards.

    Only 3 days left, and the silly season is only just peaking. I pray we bring in a few more players. We need them!

    Koller would be awesome... but he plays for Monaco in France right now. Used to play for Borussia Dortmund in Germany though... with his compatriot Tomas Rosicky.

    RE: Zat Knight to Villa for 4M

    That'd be complete rubbish. The boy finally starts playing well consistently, and now he wants to leave?

    That's a pretty square blow to the nuts.

    Zat Knight to Villa for 4M

    Didn't see anything in the BBC article that said Zat WANTED to leave. After all, why should he? We've given him nothing but love and support on this site and on the offal as well.

    RE: Zat Knight to Villa for 4M

    I have not been the biggest supporter of Zat Knight, but unless Lawrie has a few tricks up his sleeve in the form of some new defenders, this move makes very little sense to me.

    We are already short of center backs and then we go and sell probably our best one? That is not adding up for me.

    As I said, I hope Lawrie has a few players to turn to in the transfer market if indeed Knight does leave. Or heck, even if he does not leave we need more players.

    Why also give him the captain's arm band and then sell him?

    Maybe they're thinking the best time to cash in on him is right now... or maybe Aston Villa is just desperate for some CB cover (they are actually).

    Now is definitely the best time to cash in.

    Hughes is on his way back. Boca and Christanval have shown they have the ability. And perhaps Baird can transition to a CB, as he is too slow for the RB position.

    Plus, I would imagine LS has something in the works.

    Too bad Konchesky doesn't have 3 quadruplet brothers.

    As has been the case the last two seasons, we cannot count on Christanval for anything other than making sure the physio is earning his keep each season. Even when he plays I am not sure he is all that great. Boca has been okay but he is more of a squad player. Our defense can't handle the loss of another player like Knight without a backup in the works.

    I keep seeing us linked with attacking players, but we need defensive help first and foremost. This will be very interesting the next few days to see how this all unfolds.
