    There's no trace of that on the club website or their Twitter feed. The Herald are saying it.............

    Swansea and Charlton are both interest in Ruben Lameiras.

    Charlton gained promotion by winning at Wembley 2-1 against Sunderland.

    But they have problems on and off the pitch....off the pitch there owner has been trying to sell them for at least two seasons...mention Duchatelet and the fans see more than red.

    On the pitch they are having trouble retaining some of their out of contract players....winning goal scorer Patrick Bauer is one....manager Lee Bowyer cannot offer him as much as some of the clubs who want him and the clubs predicament is not helping stability.

    Lee Bowyer himself is now only a fortnight away from being out of contract so building a team for the Championship is not the only thing on his mind, there are clubs interested in poaching him.....and maybe some of his players.

    This could be why things have gone quiet on the Lameiras front....Argyle gave him till Thursday to know what he is doing....still quiet as far as I know.

    Are you saying that's what you've got or what you dream of having....a bit sporty I think.....doesn't sound very green for this age.

    A Fiat 500 is obviously a glorified elastic band compared with that.

    Where is it said that Ladapo has left then? Probably will but I can't see it so far.

    Have to say the constant news of people leaving or having already left is getting tedious when we have yet to sign anyone. Come on Lyndie pull your finger out.

    I've just had a look at his career stats, he's got a shocking record and was a bit of a clown to the Southend supporters. I can't say I'm overly impressed with this, I'd like our club to be looking at better than him unless he's just being brought in for cover.

    Certainly not a target man....the ball bounces off him like a brick wall....so no good with his back to goal.....and he can't head the ball.

    But he is quick and can run the channels....which with Carey and Lameiras and Fox delivering worked at times....but when he was bad he was really bad.

    With Carey already gone, plus Fox and possibly Lameiras soon as well, I think he would have a hard time....and of course as you have noticed he's been rubbish until this season.

    Not sure how to answer that Saffy. He was our top scorer last season in a poor team so that must be a plus given how many he got. When on form he sure can score and they are usually decent goals not tap ins. Not given much in the way of service he is mostly anonymous and isn't one to hold the ball up etc. No good if you lump it up the middle as he doesn't win many in the air against a decent sized centre back. He does have pace but his control at times is poor so he loses the ball too easily. I was surprised a bit to see that it was yourselves and Pompey interested. Not sure he is the type or class of player you are looking for. Wouldn't have minded him staying here for a season in league 2 with our new Manager though so I don't particularly want him to go despite some faults. Best guess is he won't be signed by either.

    Most of what Sensible says is right but if he is given the ball with grass in front of him, he takes some stopping. All depends on the service you give him.

    Ryan Edwards has signed for Blackpool.

    The Herald have made it up for some reason, or listened to an inaccurate source.

    Have you been hibernating somewhere BC? Can never work out if it's summer or winter in your woods. Have to say I'm getting bored now with all this no news stuff. Everyday I switch on and expect to find somebody, anybody has joined the merry ship and nobody has.

    Twas on the Good Ship Venus i'm sure there's more to that.
    Hot here Mr Sens. in the 30's cooler in the mountains though.
    Swimming in the lake is freezing.
    Fishing is good though makes for a nice BBQ. white wine is always good.
