    Whatever happened to having a world class recruitment team and the biggest budget then ringing round everyone on transfer deadline day asking if anyone is available

    I don’t think Donald likes anyone bigger than him on the pitch

    That alleged investment in scouting is working well I see.

    Very decent footballing pedigree, looked good as a kid. Not heard his name in a good five years mind.

    Started at liverpool, got shipped out like many others as not good enough at that level, done very little/**** all since.

    In fact at the minute he is the exact opposite of the type of midfielder I want at the club.

    They talk of athleticism and height and they opt for a 5' 6" 31 year old. I know it's only linked but its the type of crap we go for.

    I give up, maybe its just a rumour, lets hope so, he does win a dodgy penalty now and again I believe. We give better away, short term gain, maybe, but long term pain for certain, that's us to a tee.

    From Cattermole to Leadbitter to Spearing. It's the same player but worse every time.

    Not interested in him personally but I've got no faith in this bunch to sign the right players so who knows.

    To think one time not long ago we had the opportunity to buy M’Vila permanently. Still f*cking haunts me.....

    Lets not open that wound again.....We had a such a good team back then...such a decline to go from Big Sams last game to Parky's last game... Chalk and cheese.

    Though it is his ability, as much as anything, which had Blackpool fans mourning his departure after personal terms over a new deal could not be agreed.

    “Spearo was immense,” Parkinson told The Bolton News of this former midfield favourite back in 2016. “Just that calmness on the ball as well as his heart, which is unquestioned.

    “Having him out there is a big plus. Since I came into the club, I’ve said that a lot of managers are crying out for leadership but I have got a few players of that type and Jay is definitely one of them.

    “Good captains get more out of the players around them.”

    No wonder Parkinson would love to do battle alongside ‘Spearo’ again, with Sunderland hoping that third time is the charm in League One.

    We are doomed

    Shorty was always one of my favs, lad was bigger than all the rest, though he didn't seem to grow much after that
