Dave jones is after Roger Johnson of wolves on a season long loan:source daily mail.

Believable13 Unbelievable1

Oh come off it , were never getting him. Bring back des walker !

Agree1 Disagree10

This will never happen.

Agree2 Disagree8

John Percy on twitter says the player is keen to join us. He has a good record of being accurate. Johnson has jad numerous well reported problems this year such as turning up drunk for training and fights with team mates. This will not make him easy to offload and Wolves want him out.

Agree6 Disagree2

One or two rela negative comments suggest Trigger and co have left their sty.

Agree2 Disagree0

No chance of johnson he is a premership player and if wolves sell him it wont be to someone in the same league he will be back in the premership my guess someone like , aston villa , wigan or another lower to mid table team

Agree1 Disagree6

Mmm above comment sounds like someone from the sty. Johnson has had disciplinary problems and player himself wants to join. If we can meet wage demands we are in with a chance.

Agree4 Disagree0

Johnson has had massive problems at Wolves, I am from Wolverhampton & know people at the club. He is not a PL player, he is Championship at best. Apparently he wants to work with DJ again as it was DJ who bought him from Wycombe & they work well together.UTO

Hobbs would be a good signing.

Hobbs has done his anterior cruciate ligament. Out for 8 month so doubt we'll be getting him.

I can't help but think everyone is getting carried away with talk of another promotion next year. We have to consolidate for a season or two first. Take Southampton. We don't have a Ricky Lambert or an Adam Lallanna ( spelling ? ) . Antonio looks class in League 1 but why couldn't he get a game for Reading last year ? Look around the team and especially those who are our players and with the exception of Buxton, Llera, Semedo and Madine, ( and maybe Bywater and Reda ) I don't see anyone with the ability or potential to play in a top championship side. I know MM will invest and DJ is a top manager - but a reality check is required - take it from one who has seen the bad times over the past 15 years ! Saturday was unbelievable and we have some brilliant foundations with MM and DJ in charge - but one step at a time please

Believable10 Unbelievable5

Agree Only around 4 -players are good enough for the championship, it would appear that the chairman wants promotion within a short space of time, hopefully he will fund Dave Jones for some players capable of the next levels up

Agree5 Disagree1

Firstly if you can not dream when you have just won promotion when can you. Another promotion would be nice but agree it may take one, two or three as Mandarich stated. What we are saying is we need players who can deliver at Championship level. It is no use buying players who are a make do and have to be replaced next year.

Think you have correctly pointed out the scale of rebuilding required is huge and from DJ comments when he talked about a "revolution in the summer" when he first came I expect substantial change. From your list would only see Buxton and Bywater as squad players, others mentioned I could see them as a success at this level. Believe Lines and Beevers could be a squad players but unsure about rest.

A good team spirit and bond does count for a lot and Southampton and Norwich teams have many players who were thought not suitable for Premiership and Championship but proved folks wrong. Hope some of ours can do the same. Last time we went up little change was maid and we struggled so hoping for some good acquisitions.

Agree5 Disagree2

What happened last Saturday ?

Agree5 Disagree3

As its a team game sometimes players just dont gel. Antonio has done with us and I am confident that he we be very effective in the Championship.
I don't think that fans enjoying promotion and looking forwards to the next level need a reality check, if we were all doom and gloom we wouldn't be in this situation.

Agree1 Disagree1

I agree with no getting carried away but nothing wrong with optimism, a rare commodity at Hillsborough. I to be honest I hope the blades get promotion for two reasons. 1, derby games an 2, Sheffield has taken a pummelling over the last few years and two teams doing well is good for the city so lets enjoy ourselves and learn to dream, aspire, think big and stand stall my fellow Owls!

Agree4 Disagree3

Agree with above point about United and wonderful uplift for City. My dream was to win Premiership or FA Cup and have Utd as runners up. Half of Manchester is going to be absolutely gutted at the weekend.

Agree2 Disagree0

At the moment were 25-1 to win the league and 6-1 for promotion, if everyone else is confident then so should we! in milan we trust

Agree4 Disagree0

Have some of you not been to school before?
PS Buxton is more than capable of playing Championship standard!

Agree4 Disagree2

I hope SUFC get battered ...I'm not interested in this " it's good for the city stuff ".

Agree9 Disagree2

On Twitter it is reported Leeds winger Adam Clayton has signed for Leicester. He plays same position as Marshall. Hence Marshall rumour may be true. {Ed013's Note - Clayton plays center Midfield}

Agree1 Disagree4

Yes Buxton can play at Champioship level but realisticly not in a promotion team. He struggled against some Championship wingers two years ago and will again.

Agree1 Disagree2

Having SUFC in Championship is good financially for the Owls. Only thing better is if they went to the wall so Wednesday would have a much better fan catchment base. Sometimes you have to look beyond rivalry. Besides we will get at least 4 points off them if they are promoted.

Agree0 Disagree4

Buxton has progresswd and 2 years ago wasnt as good on the ball as well as defending, hes more than capable for champ and any mupit who says otherwise needs to get themsen to the games

Agree2 Disagree2

Saeason ticket holder and 12 away games this season. He does not have pace of top quality full back. Will be a good squad player who will cover at back but do not be surprised to see him start on bench for first game if Jones gets in his players.

Agree1 Disagree0

Totally agree with the first comment we do not have a 30 goal a season striker which you need to even get close to going up auto southampton only did it on the last game dont forget , same as norwich with grant holt , we need to become a strong championship side then go from there

Agree0 Disagree0

Dave Jones has said rumours that he's agreed a fee for Antonio is "rubbish", but he has had several conversations with Reading. Antonio's said, "If [Dave Jones] wants to talk to Reading about me, I can't say no." Taken from Hallam FM reporter (Kelly O'Donnell)'s Twitter account.

Believable7 Unbelievable0

DJ has enquired about Antonio nothing more.
