    Is anyone expecting a spectacular transfer window? Mings on loan sounds good (even if he did play for that lot). Winnall from Barnsley would also be good. There's also a possibility of Bojan Jovic at LB on a free after his release by Villareal. He has 82 caps for Slovenia and played in all 3 of their World cup group games, including the 0-0 draw with England. Could be a reasonable replacement for Olsson if he leaves. He also knows the Championship, having played 20 matches for Forest on loan for the 2nd half of last season.

    I'd love us to go all out for Charlie Taylor from Leeds, or (whisper it) Mings on loan from Bournemouth?

    Just seen this on NewsNow - "Bailey claims that the deal to sell Olsson to Swansea will go through. Swansea have agreed a £5m fee and that transfer is expected to go through soon.
    He also reports that Norwich are attempting to sell John Ruddy, Sebastien Bassong and Steven Naismith, all of whom are big earners at the club.
    Ruddy and Bassong have been in poor form for the most part in recent seasons, although Naismith has been producing some good performances of late for the club.
    Norwich have made it clear they need to sell before they can buy this month and Olsson only appears to be the first of many to leave Carrow Road."


    Oh well, it's pretty obvious that the chase for promotion is COMPLEtELY out of the window!! Would the last fan to leave please turn out the lights?????

    "Newcastle look to break transfer record for £20M Callum Wilson"

    :emoticon-0114-dull:

    Coz they haven't already bought the league in the last window!!

    It's like they have a money cheat on Football Manager or FIFA!!

    Where has our money gone!? They have been ripping us off for years, and we see nothing invested in the team!! How do they think they are going to get away with this?!

    If we sell our stars and bring no one of any quality in, yet again!!, I certainly wont be giving them anymore of my money.

    From what I'm reading (and OK, some of it 'with a pinch of salt!!!'), it's beginning to seem as though they've completely ruined NCFC that I've known for the last 10 years or so and I know for many on here, it's MUCH longer than that.

    If Whittaker plays one game at left back because of our farcical management and board selling Olsson whilst our only real cover Brady is suspended and will also be likely gone without playing again I will truly despair.

    Bah!

    Neil said anyone is up for sale, so the rumour mongers are running with that. Olsson may be sold but as KIO wrote earlier, why would he want to go to Swansea just to come back to the Championship next season? Olsson to Swansea I just don't believe.

    It's starting to resemble the bad old days, when Ashley Ward and Jon Newsome were sold (ushered out of the side door), against their will, they enjoyed their time here, by Chase and his cronies, just to 'balance the books'.
    McNally helped put the building blocks in place for a (potentially) mid / lower table PL side.
    From the day he left - under mysterious circumstances, those remaining have demolished all the good things he helped put in place <doh> - and they ain't finished yet <wah>
    That which took 5/6/7 years to achieve has been undone in less than a year and we're now a club in reverse <yikes>

    It's only 11 days in, and looks like we will be losing Jacob, Olsson, Brady and Klose.

    I doubt we would bring anyone in. Definitely not the players we need, i.e- Great Championship players who could step up to the Prem (with us, or make us profit).

    Klose? Haven't heard any rumours for him. Plus we don't know how serious his injury is so that might put buyers off.

    My comment with regard to a spectacular transfer window was meant to imply that we could all be in for a spectacular exit of players. Perhaps we are going to see the youngsters (bar Ja. Murphy & Canos)
    be given more of a chance? Forget promotion this year.

    AN was forcing him out before he got put back in, WBA and Palace etc were looking at him. Now after returning and playing really well, AN has publicly attacked him again.

    Our young players get sent out on loan. Josh might get a run of games, but he's looked a bit poor. :emoticon-0148-yes:

    Sorry, but AN slagging him off in public after the Saints match is a) going to piss TK off and b) alert all and sundry that things are not cool in camp Canary and start a bidding war.
    Just because 'rookie' Neil doesn't pick him doesn't make him a bad defender.
    We're back to the Chase days, I tell you - and it can only get worse from here :(

    I'd take him. Great prospect, so much pace, bombs forward. A bit injury prone and an ex-scummer, but we are desperate.

    Just wondering how many of you had seriously expected us to go out and have a whirlwind January Sales, buying bargain after bargain, and selling off all the unwanted wood. January is traditionally a very slow window for most clubs and we are no exception, when do we ever go and splash out anyway. The fact that we have to sell before we can buy, only makes things even worse, and slows down an already pedestrian procedure. The players that have been mentioned as being possibly sold ( Ruddy, Bassong etc), are almost certainly on too high wages, for the sort of clubs that are likely to be interested in them, to move on, so I see that as very unlikely. Brady certainly is a possible mover, but other than that, unless you believe the Olsson rumour, I can´t see many of the current 1st team squad leaving ( I don´t regard Canos or Lafferty as a 1st team squad member by the way). I should think it´s possible we´ll bring in a couple on loan, but I´m not expecting an extravagant use of the Carrow Road check book.
