' I've been told we should have 1 more signing by Sunday' I was right! All of you doubting me, good signing for us though! UTO

Believable8 Unbelievable12

Mmm when exactly did you make this statement?

Agree13 Disagree5

Id like to point out to all the doom and gloom posters that:

1) we paid money for Helan
2) we may have only signed 2 players so far, but they are both young, have bags of potential, have come through at top 4 premiership clubs and have signed on long term contracts.
3) Our 2nd half of season form was play off form last season, Lita, a centre half and 1 other striker and we are going to be top half at worst. That would do me all day long after the last 14 years!

Agree23 Disagree4

Lita next to sign for us

Agree14 Disagree4

Lita a CM & CD would definitely complete the squad.

Agree8 Disagree3

I think if Lita gets an offer from London he will prefer that. but i'd love to have him back, he looked bright and intelligent with his movement. back to goal we brought others in well. he's as good a striker as we can hope for. Sooooo glad we didn't get Davies.

Agree5 Disagree5

If you scroll down mate you will see the exact quote I made, just keep scrolling

Agree3 Disagree2

Litas good but is there better? Younger possibly? Uto

Agree6 Disagree4

One geezer said we would make 1 signing before Sunday, would hardly call this an in the know prediction. Only other references are to tv piece on battle between us and wolves.
Hence do not think you can boast about that. If smething else give date and time otherwise stop bragging about something that was always on cards.

Agree4 Disagree0

I remember the quote. Takeover will happen before the new year! I can quote that without knowing and if it does then I am in the know! Lucky I think you was to say we will Sign someone before Sunday lol

Agree2 Disagree0

Of course there are better than Lita, that's a no brainer. However, he fit into our style of play last season and came up with the goods.
Give me a realistic example within the price bracket that we can afford of a better striker for us?
Along with Madine this season, who I believe will take advantage of his last chance, and the threat from the wings that we now have I reckon we will be a force to reckon with.

Agree3 Disagree1

Is it just me or can't we do any better than lita, hope we don't sign tbh

Agree7 Disagree6

Lita will sign 100%

Agree6 Disagree1

Why would you not want Lita? He is a proven goalscorer given the chance, and with players like Maghoma, Antonio, Helan, Johnson and Buxton in the squad he will get plenty of supply. I would also like to see Maguire given a proper go in the team.

Agree6 Disagree2

Don't understand people against the idea of signing lita, we pray for a goalscorer for the whole of last season and then when one comes along people don't see it

Agree2 Disagree0

Rumours circulating that Dave Jones is preparing a move for Ipswich's Michael Chopra, using the funds from O'Grady's sale. The striker is transfer listed at Portman Road and is available for some around £250k - £500k.

Believable2 Unbelievable15

Worth 100 k at max he can't even get in the squad their

Agree9 Disagree0

Hope not sick of us being linked to has-beens, why can't we sign players in there prime UTO

Agree9 Disagree0

Lord I hope not, not the player he was and too many off field problems. Is the fee stated how much Ipswich are prepared to offer to get him off their books, surely nobody would pay that for him if O'Grady has gone for a reported £350k.

Agree11 Disagree0

100% michael chopra will not sign for wednesday

Agree11 Disagree1

Hes released

Agree2 Disagree2

I may have had too much Pino but I think Chopra would be a good addition. Experience, good movement and knows where the net is. Could teach Madine a thing or two

Agree0 Disagree4

The only thing he'll teach Madine is how to lose his money quicker

Agree8 Disagree0

Sky. helan signed on 4 yr deal. Fee not known

Believable12 Unbelievable3

Happy about that, very good prospect, only 21. UTO.

Not happy that we are looking at Taylor Fletcher. 32yr old released by Blackpool so presumably he is not good enough for them, played 200 + games for them and only scored 38 goals so why does DJ think he could do a job for us. Looked vastly overweight last season.

Agree9 Disagree2

We are NOT looking at Taylor-Fletcher. DJ has openly said that GTF ASKED to train with us, so we're letting him. He was training at Wrexham before IIRC. He is NOT going to Portugal he will NOT play at Scunny. We're not actively pursuing him. Just have a bit of faith in DJ he's a great manager!

Agree6 Disagree2

Agreed! Helan will be a good player for us and let's hope the Taylor Fletcher rumour stays a rumour! UTO

Agree5 Disagree1

DJ is a decent bloke, he is prepared to help others hence let's them train ith us. This gets him well in so at a later stage he may get pay back.

Agree6 Disagree1

He can h4elp our players too

Agree1 Disagree0

What?, help our players, he was training with wrexham and asked to train with owls, what is it free gym pass at swfc, ffs I pay 35 a week, koumas, fowler, fletcher, and the rest can get on free speed boat and **** off,

Agree3 Disagree4

Last poster is missing the point, people like fowler can impart so much wisdom on the players it's a great thing I can't imagine you going round the gym giving tips on how to finish off a perfect squat thrust under pressure! Another small detail is if a contact of fowler says how is it at Sheff Wed and he says great team behind the screens it's great networking. Kamowl

Agree4 Disagree1

Dave Jones is a great manager? lol! Alright Dave, get back to the training ground would ya!

Agree0 Disagree0

Blackpool supposedly interested in signing Joe Mattock

Helan signs 4 year deal, get in

Agree11 Disagree1

SWFC Helan signs on free from man city

Agree6 Disagree10

Sheffield wednesday have signed jeremy helan on a four year deal 2 in let's get a CH a creative mid and 2 strikers now

Agree7 Disagree0

I am puzzled how he can sign for free when reports said that Wolves had met Manchester City's asking price. I think, therefore, a fee was involved. Nevertheless, welcome addition

Agree6 Disagree1

SWFC Helan signs on free from man city?. Undisclosed! it says nothing about it being a free, I think there will have been a small fee atleast.

Agree6 Disagree1

Its undisclosed fee

Agree5 Disagree1

Hope this is true. I'll drive him so he can settle in with a few more donkeys

Agree0 Disagree4

Id be happy enough with Lita or 1 other striker. JJ and Antonio can do a job and I still rate Madine. He's got bags of potential.

If we let him go, time he's 25 we will be regretting it big time. He needs to mature but that will come in time, he's still just a pup.

Agree5 Disagree0

I'm looking forward to next season all ready we have got some serious pace in our squad just wounder who will be up front with madine?

Agree5 Disagree0

Iv got a feeling that with the lightening pace we have on the flanks now, Madine will prosper this season.

Agree6 Disagree1

I only hope he (madine) realises that he has good opportunity to shine. It is down to him he has touch, control and phsique just needs hard work and application. Sincerley hope he gives his all and realises success is not handed to you on a plate at higher levels in football.

Agree6 Disagree0

Well said

Agree2 Disagree0

We have so much pace with the wingers, i'm wondering if Madine can keep up when we break out of defence?

Agree2 Disagree0
