Adebayor has fallen out of favour with Tottenham and fits into Alex Neil's playing style. Norwich considering a 6mil bid on him.( Doubt we would want to pay the wages)

Frankly I cannot see how he fits in with Alex Neil's playing style, Lazy, lazy, seems to perform great just before his contract is up, then he goes back to his laid back approach, of if you get the ball to me I can score you a goal.

quality yes, commitment No.

Spurs tried to offload this player to West Ham last year even offering to pay some of his wages.The deal fell apart as the two clubs were unable to reach an agreement. There is no doubt about Adebeyor's talents, however the player is on big money and has publicly stated that he wants away but to the likes of Chelsea or Real Madrid. I am not sure how recent these comments were though.

Adebeyor is 31, he is a proven premiership goal scorer.

Norwich would not be able to pay him the sort of wages that he has been used to and Alex Neil would expect him to give 100% and nothing less. It would never work if the player thought he was doing us a favour by signing.

Adebeyor might be better off running down his Spurs contract and then playing MLS or for a Greek or Turkish Champions league club or indeed heading to China for a year or two more to boost his retirement funds.

Yet with all of this I would at least want to speak to the player to find out what he really wants. If money is all he wants then good luck to him. If he wants a starting place and a chance to show the world his talents in the Premiership then he could be a hero for us.

A loan deal is another possibility where the potential downsides to such a player could be mitigated. If we are considering Mbokani and NDoye then we must be considering Adebeyor. Despite the risks the upside is that Adebeyor has the talent to deliver 15 plus premiership goals in a season.

For a club like ours that would make him a legend.

{Ed001's Note - he rejected one move because he would have to take a pay cut. His reasoning was that he gives a percentage of his pay to charity and he didn't want to reduce the amount he gave.}

Ruddy is not looking to leave Norwich. Rumours that he will go to Chelsea are not true.




17 Jun 2015 21:41:51
DeAndre Yedlin from Tottenham on season loan a possibility


1.) 18 Jun 2015 15:46:27
Also heard this, Tottenham set to sign Trippier so will loan him to us, aparently has lightning pace which can only be a good thing

2.) 18 Jun 2015 15:49:06
He also played at the 2014 world cup and was very impressive, considering he is only 21 years old now that is impressive

3.) 18 Jun 2015 20:00:04
Nothing confirmed, but there is an agreement with Spurs in principle.



13 Jun 2015 00:00:22
Norwich almost finalised deal from duo Tyrone Mings an Daryl Muphy as Alex Neil interested in those two


1.) 13 Jun 2015 08:52:56
Though he plays down the road just now, Tyrone Mings would be a great addition. I would say he's one of the best defenders in the championship and will be head hunted by many bigger Premier League clubs. As for Daryl Murphy well he is a beast and his work rate is very high. We could make these two much better players if given the chance. OTBC

No truth to this whatsoever.

3.) 13 Jun 2015 19:07:30
Please No on both counts

4.) 14 Jun 2015 08:43:25
An Ipswich Defender 😂 and an old one season wonder ipswich striker😂, there is no truth in this haha!



10 Jun 2015 17:30:35
According to my sources Millwall are looking to take Tony Andreu on for a loan until January

How our team will probably look come the start of season:

GK: Ruddy, Rudd
LB: Olsson, Toffollo
RCB: Martin, R Bennett
LCB: Bassong, (New signing)
RB: Whittaker, E Bennett
DM: Tettey, Mulumbu
CM: Howson, Vadis, O'Neil
AM: Hoolahan, Dorrans
LM: Johnson, (New signing (Brady or M Alonso maybe))
RM: Redmond, Josh/Jacob Murphy
ST: Jerome, Grabban

Hooper - unfortunately
van Wolfswinkel (January)



1.) 25 Jul 2015 13:57:33
You think we will rely on Grabban and Jerome upfront?



22 Jul 2015 23:42:20
It feels like if Ricky stays he will almost be like a new signing




12 Jul 2015 11:59:09
Away kit to be revealed next week




11 Jun 2015 23:34:31
Keep Toffollo to challenge for first team place or loan him out for another season?




07 Jun 2015 00:55:04
Who are we getting first game of the season? I'm going for Sunderland away.


1.) 08 Jun 2015 10:29:23
I reckon you will get Manchester United myself, no idea why, just a feeling.

2.) 09 Jun 2015 19:02:33
Arsenal (home)

Fulham fans have said they don't believe that they paid nearly 11mil for Ross McCormack. It was just for Leeds to tell their fans to try and keep them happy.
