You're just like @TransferCentre9!

Good addition, could do with a bit more height but him and Barrett can share the burden of the experienced defender and hopefully help Thompson and Sokolik to improve too.

Haha, indeed.
No claims of inside knowledge here though, nothing more than a very educated guess :smile:

EDIT The irony is I see he posted last night after Ferdinand followed us, some 10 hours after you brought his name up on this forum. As Ive said before he uses this forum as one of his "sources".

I think it 95% Anton Ferdinand- if so suspect Cox has been a helpful intermediary.
Still only 31 so could be a cracking signing- but doubt he is near match fit.

I believe the other CB we are chasing is John Terry :smile:

The fact we have been told its a well known CB plus the other circumstantial evidence does seem to confirm it. Ive added a caveat to the title though, just in case lol.

Haha. If true I wonder if the club will be slightly annoyed that Anton followed the club on Twitter now and potentially gave it away...

At this level that's a good signing. I just hope the fans give him a little time because I'm sure he will need it considering he has been without a club for a short while. Let's give him a good welcome!

went off the boil years ago, fat cat payday.....

Is there any player not currently playing international football that you would deem acceptable?

Plenty of experience and played 24 games in the championship last year after a couple of seasons in exile. Still younger than Barrett was when he came back.

Will he be a success? Who knows.

Worth a try though.
