Has Chris Kirkland cancelled his contract or not? {Ed046's Note - Statement due tomorrow!

Believable2 Unbelievable7

From reports it seems he could not hack the travelling and did not want to move is family to Sheffield his loss we don't need players that can't be bothed

Agree3 Disagree6

Sounds like a yes then.

Agree0 Disagree2

Yes he left yesterday. Claimed the journey from Merseyside to South Yorkshire every day was too much so asked for his contract to be terminated. What a waster!

Agree0 Disagree6

I think we might have got away with one here, though from what I hear the primary reason is that his Wife is in a bad way health wise. Goodbye Chris Kirkland - Hello Tom Heaton? (is he still available?)

Agree0 Disagree2

If his wife is ill I hold my hands up and say good luck and it was the right decision, if it's because he can't be arsed, then I only have 4 letter words that can't be posted.

Agree5 Disagree3

Why didn't he realise this before he signed!

Agree3 Disagree2

If this turns out to be true i will be very suprised. We have a gk who said he was desperate to kickstart his career and we gave him the chance to do this at a club on the up. If it is the distance thats causing him the problem then he doesn't deserve the chance to play for our great club, If on the other hand his wife is ill and needs him at home then fair enough. Look forward to getting some concrete answers.

Agree1 Disagree2

What a waster, hope mm makes him pay back any wages received {Ed046's Note - Lets hear the reasons before making a judgement!!

Agree4 Disagree1

According to rob staton he has been given time off. He hasn't left us for good.

Agree7 Disagree0

I think you should all stop calling Kirkland a 'waste of time' etc, if his wife is seriously ill then fair play to the lad. some things are more important than football..lets hear the facts first..

Agree11 Disagree1

heard a rumour that Mr Jones may have ignited interest for Peter Whittingham from his old club cardiff, has anyone else heard anything ? {Ed046's Note - Cardiff do not want to sell. But if he were to leave it would be for the Premier league.

Believable3 Unbelievable6

Premier league and a lot of money

Agree4 Disagree0

Milan doesn't dospending lots of cash on individual players so I would doubt this one!

Agree3 Disagree0

He won't come to us just because Mr.Jones is interested, we might be massive but we aren't that massive yet

Agree5 Disagree0

They have already rejected a bid from fulham for him.

Agree1 Disagree0

Have I just heard correctly that joey Barton is to serve his 12 match ban at Hillsborough.what is the point in that if TRUE ?

Believable9 Unbelievable1

If true it will be due to the fact that we will play 12 games faster than any prem team due to how our fixtures work out .In short a nice little back hander or a decent player on loan and the get JB back a month early.

Agree5 Disagree0

Ground needs a lick of paint so we have employed him

Agree5 Disagree0

No point because its not true

Agree1 Disagree2

Season long loan, available by October, effectively misses 7 weeks.

Agree2 Disagree1

He serves his ban faster, we get DJ Campbell on loan and a nice little payment for the service! It might not be to favourable in the football leagues or FA eyes but ah well I want to get to the premiership and money and players like DJ Campbell are the kind of thing we need to get there!

Agree4 Disagree2

First Ranger and now Barton -- be changing kit next to arrows rather than stripes !

Agree4 Disagree1

I said as a joke will only be a matter of time before we are linked with barton now wwill vinnie jones be taking over from mcauley?

Agree0 Disagree0

We'll be called the dirty dozen soon!

Agree1 Disagree0

Wages would be very high, seem to remember 35,000 a week being mentioned at QPR.

Agree0 Disagree0

Reading fans seem to think that Antonio is still 'set to sign'. They seem disappointed they are letting him leave. Hurry up and sort this one out!.

Believable6 Unbelievable0

I live in Reading and can confirm this. Apparently manager has a very mechanised way of playing and Antonio does not gel with this.

Agree8 Disagree0

He's certainly set to sign for somebody

Agree4 Disagree1

Looks like he's going to Burnley

Agree6 Disagree8

Het Laatste Nieuws claims that Sheffield Wednesday have expressed an interest in Club Brugge's Belgian international striker Bjorn Vleminckx.

Believable4 Unbelievable4

Dutch and Belgian press saying he came over to Sheffield last week. Was transferred for over 3 million Euros last summer but was not success at Club Bruges. Apparently want to offload. This chap had 2 successful years in Eredivisie (Dutch Premier) where one year he was top scorer in League. This chap would be decent, apparently work horse in Dirk Kuyt mould.

Agree5 Disagree0

Going to be a massive culture shock moving from Brugge to Sheffield.

Agree1 Disagree1

The same reports also say he spent most of his time on the bench in Belgium, has personal problems and the club are desperately trying to get shut. Gilles de Bilde anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

Perhaps explain culture shock, I have worked in Brussels last year and would have Sheffield any time over Belgium. Very boring place they get high eating chocolate (or thats what they call it).

Agree2 Disagree1

Yes but Brugge is one of the most beautiful places Iv been too.

Agree0 Disagree0

I don't know where all these rumours have come from about Joey Barton but would love to know a source? I can't stand the person but to be fair is a good player! And no one can disagree that it would attract other big named players to the club!

Think we need to get looking for players in the strikers apartment! Heard rumours of Bothroyd but highly unlikely! We need a rapid forward who will cause the defence some problems and also someone who can finish!


Believable4 Unbelievable0

Barton rumour in London press, believe West London press has online version. They do not run gossip as such and usually material in is factual. Seems widespread knowledge around Llondon at the weekend, pal told me on Saturday in Portobello Road.

Agree1 Disagree1

That rapid striker who can finish you are on about is the same striker most teams look for tbh so i think dj probably knows this already....

Agree0 Disagree0

Just seen Dave jones walking on water. Not penistone road but close. New slovac kid looks great on YouTube. Some of the games look like its against the rose and crown but he's got a great hit on him from distance and could cause teams serious problems. Looks like a 6'4 modric/nedved only he's a forward so you figure it out. Happy days!
