Heard a lot of rumours regarding Jay Bothroyd and everyone must admit that would be a really good signing, although I cant see it happening!
I've also heard Simon Cox and Dave Kitson are available which might be worth a punt?
I think we are in desperate need of a rapid striker who can put goals away (around 20 goals a season).
Not long till the start of the season but I believe DJ will be working his magic!

Believable2 Unbelievable5

Dave Kitson and simon cox would be poor signing and would be lucky to get 8 goals in a season

Agree4 Disagree3

(writer of the first comment)
Yeah I agree with you but they have proven in the championship before so might be worth at chance but only at the right cost! We need someone 'like' Ricky lambert! He was key for Southampton last season!

Agree0 Disagree2

BOthroyd would give me loads of confidence, think we would be nearly there then. Quality player.
Again though, lets not panic, he's not going to be in qpr's 25, he's not gone one preseason tour, so if it's a loan?

Agree3 Disagree2

I remember last time West Brom came to us in league and won 4-1 and Simon Cox tore us apart, would be worth a go at championship level

Agree3 Disagree2

We need a player like chopra

Agree2 Disagree2

Haha i think every team is in need of a rapid striker who can score 20 goals a season to be honest.....

Agree1 Disagree1

Everyone talks about strikers that are good however what you have to remeber is how they will fit into the team and wether that player can be the right player to like up with e.g. Madine and done a certain job. Bothroyd would be a great signing but would he fit into the team, the way we play

Agree0 Disagree0

DJ is not a manager who goes over old ground, he did not bring in loads of players from previous clubs, so many of links are just far fetched nonesense.

Agree0 Disagree0

Jay Bothroyd has been spotted down at the training ground today looks like he could be signing very soon

Believable8 Unbelievable5

Really hope this is true him and madine together have potential to be a top strike force in the championship!

Agree3 Disagree2

If everyone reported on here as being at the training ground had signed we would have a squad of 531 by now, if all these people had been there, then our facilities must be seriously dogger... Or, 99% of these sightings are lies?

Agree3 Disagree0

Well at least it made me laugh

Agree2 Disagree2

Thought the squad at the moment was around that figure,no doubt we will move a few on soon.

Agree0 Disagree0

Doesn't look like we getting Danish starlet Helenius. The 21 year old 6ft 5 striker from Aalborg.

Anyone heard anything else.

Believable5 Unbelievable2

Only heard it from sky not a peep from radio sheff who are a lot more reliable in my opinion

Agree4 Disagree2

Radio Sheffield can't report it if theres nothing to report - says it all ?

Agree4 Disagree2

He turned down our offer last week and there manager said if he was goin to leave it wouldnt be to us but hes another another season with his own club anyway

Agree2 Disagree3

On the contrary we are interested and still talking and we did put in bid unlike 90% of other names mentioned.
They tried to inflate price by going public we sit tight and wait for right moment.

Michael owen thinking over a pay as you play deal

Believable2 Unbelievable17

Behave with such rubbish

Agree12 Disagree1

Ok say i guess he wont play then since his wage would be ridiculous. where did u get this info from ?

Agree8 Disagree1

Never happen in million years

Agree8 Disagree0

Who for?

Agree5 Disagree1


Agree6 Disagree0

Oh noo not theese ridicolous rumours again we had all this months ago and michael owen would be a step backwards any way we want young fresh pacey strikers and owen isnt that

Agree5 Disagree1

Absolute rubbish

Agree4 Disagree0

I cant see this happening either but lets be fair he has scored were ever he goes, still got very good goal per game ratio.

Agree4 Disagree1

Dont want him and his wages would be stupid. even he played one game it would be more than all squad put together

Agree2 Disagree0

Already said wouldnt drop down to championship also hes already talking to Stoke about possible switch

Agree5 Disagree0

Owen wouldn't move away from cheshire as he has lived they're all his life and personally I wouldnt want him

Agree2 Disagree1

The Owls are set to sign French Strker Jeremy Perbet from Belgian club Mons this week

Believable7 Unbelievable7

Well last season he was on fire scoring 39 in 50 apps.

Agree6 Disagree2

Got a good scoring record at not very well known clubs - maybe worth a punt !

Agree4 Disagree2

Where do people get all these random players from ?? {Ed020's Note - fifa}

Agree7 Disagree2

You mean him in the blue shirt that was sat in directors box on sat. Look at the picture from the match then google him. Same person.

Agree3 Disagree3

Liecster and everton are after him as well

Agree3 Disagree1

No it's not the same person at all.

Agree3 Disagree1

We do need a billy sharp kind of striker, a player who knows this league inside out like billy, I would be happy with this lad but cant see it if your saying everton and Leicester are after him!

Agree1 Disagree0
