Believable10 Unbelievable11

I agree with ed want to get the right players not just any players also got players in centre mid its the wings we are struggling

Agree11 Disagree2

Lets be serious wednesday were never gonna buy norris, when he could of been out of contract in two weeks.

Agree6 Disagree0

I have just personally been talking to rhys mcabe , i work at a gym near town and he came in for a look round he was with his gf , they were looking at appartments near the gym and i asked him if he'd signed for us he said yes a 3 year deal !!! honestly guys believe me or what i dont care i dont need to make up bull like other ppl do on here , gods honest truth and thats what he told me . heard it here first!!

Agree5 Disagree6

McCabe will be for the development squad initially

Agree1 Disagree10

From what iv read in scottish press its a done deal. Hes supposed to be a real talent! Theres a bit on the man u site about him and they say hes valued at 10million!?

Agree0 Disagree8

No you don't and he didn't

Agree6 Disagree0

We will continue to miss out on players while ever Paul Aldridge is in charge of contract negotiations! Look what he did to Megson!

Agree1 Disagree4

Wednesday are doing things the right way. If we go out flashing the cash, we'll end up paying well over the odds and wind up back in debt. I must admit to being frustrated about the Antonio deal, i think we need this signing for the feel good factor to take momentum into the season. The Macabe rumour looks like it's got legs though. Keep The Faith. The Wednesday.

Agree3 Disagree0

McCabe is for the first team. He is rated very highly he broke into the rangers first team and did well at end of last season. Everton and man u were keen but he wants first team football.

Agree3 Disagree0

If we're getting Antonio (partly) for the feelgood factor and to get momentum for the season, then surely it makes sense to delay until the season's about to start? Then it'll be fresh in everyone's minds. Looks like he's leaving Reading this summer and, while they say there's a number of clubs interested, as far as I know - no one else has made an offer?

The Owls are closing in on a midfield player. Source: Rob Staton

Could be Rhys McCabe from Rangers, unlikely to be David Norris though as Leeds are now favourites to capture his signature.

Talks with Reading re Antonio are ongoing. Don't expect him to be a SWFC player before the Oldham game though, or even the Derby game; it is more likely that it will be towards the end of the transfer window once Reading's 25 man squad has been decided upon. Unless DJ switches targets, of course.

Believable7 Unbelievable3

Norris has signed for Leeds, confirmed.

Agree4 Disagree5

McCabe is a defender {Ed046's Note - He sees himself as a central midfield player who can fill in at right-back}

Agree3 Disagree1

Jermain Jenus to sign on season long loan from tottenham it's a done deal and ricardo fuller in on a free to be confirmed at 6 tonight {Ed046's Note - And where has this come from?? Jermaine Jenas who is a Nottingham lad turned down the chance to go to Forest as he did not want to play in the championship. Why would he then change his mind and come to Hillsborough??}

Agree2 Disagree7

Another dreamer

Agree2 Disagree2

It's past 6:00 p.m. -- no announcement!

3rd bid placed for antonio belived to be 700k straight up. Talk sport have said this morning norris will sign for swfc.

Believable2 Unbelievable7

We should not dance to Reading's tune.

Agree7 Disagree2

Don't think it is dancing to their tune he is their asset and they want the best price they can get for him we would be doing the same if it was say madine that's modern football get use to it

Agree3 Disagree4

We already had a 700,000 bid turned down for antonio and Norris has signed for leeds. Lets just offer 1million straight up for antonio and get it done and sorted i say.

Agree4 Disagree5

Why pay 1m for a player unproven at the level he is being bought for - your Manchester Uniteds of this world can afford to take them risks, we cannot. I think that the 700k we have offered is top end of his value, lets not forget he only has 1 year left on his contract.

Agree6 Disagree0

Don't think it is dancing to their tune he is their asset and they want the best price they can get for him we would be doing the same if it was say madine that's modern football get use to it

He might be an asset, but he's also a cost. Reading surely want him off their books, going into Prem, and I can't see another club coming in with a 1m bid for him...Reading aren't necessarily in the driving seat

Agree2 Disagree0

From what I've read (on Sky Sports), McDermott claims he's part of the team and they're not especially looking to sell, but he wants to leave as there's too many others ahead of him. Sky Sports say Reading want in the region of 750k, so I'd be very annoyed if we suddenly decided to give them an extra third on top of that!

Let the deal play out, let's see who we've got come Derby and let's get behind the lads, whoever they might be! Personally, I think we'll get Antonio, but I trust DJ and MM either way.
