The world of Premiership transfer gossip is full of nonsense, but some nonsense is more interesting that the other nonsense. Speculation is rife in the likes of the Mirror, Daily Mail, Times, Sun andâ€¦ errâ€¦ Tribal Football all do their best to predict and/or completely make up the future.
Hereâ€™s our opinion on the Premiership transfer rumours weâ€™ve read in the papers and around the netâ€¦ and if you have any thoughts, pop em in the comments.
CaughtOffside Says: Shame, because…wait that’s not a shame at all.
CaughtOffside Says: We just put this here so Reading fans can join in the Transfer Window fun too. Rosenior is a reasonable player. So… that’s quite exciting, right?
CaughtOffside Says: 10 million and a mediocre midfielder won’t help. It’s all over already.
CaughtOffside Says: If Keane can play Chopra and Mido up front all season, we just don’t see Sunderland going down at all. The Egyptian plays well and scores as long as he starts every week Boro? See above.
CaughtOffside Says: If there was ever a player who should have ALLARDYCE tattooed on his forehead, it’s Papa Diop. Sam would probably give him his
corrupt first son Craig just to get a chance at The Wardrobe.
CaughtOffside Says: Well, they just paid 10 million for 12 year old Gareth Bale and 16 million for Darren Bent. So Billy could probably add a zero to that number and still find himself without his star prospect at the start of the season.
CaughtOffside Says: Alan Smith is the opposite of James Beattie. Hard working, professional, and not a chufty mound of lard. Baines is a good shout too, assuming the club can pull their finger out long enough to sign a talented player who genuinely supported them as a wee lad.
CaughtOffside Says: Freddie is a quality player who Harry knows well, he’s scoring bags for one of the best and most attacking teams in Europe, and previously only had an average goal rate for some pretty mediocre West Ham and Tottenham clubs. So if Pompey fans are as good as they think they are, this one makes sense.
CaughtOffside Says: There’s no reason to believe Eidur Gudjohnsen is a money-grubbing mercenary. Other than the fact that he wouldn’t answer a simple question about whether he bleaches his pubes and his hair when we talked to him in November.
