Guest Wen Y Hu Posted January 10, 2011 Share Posted January 10, 2011 Afternoon update #1 of 1 Transfer digest from the Transfer Window Part 3 thread covering the period from 16:00 yesterday to 16:00 today. This digest has been arranged according to topic for ease of reading. Any comments should be confined to the respective threads - DO NOT POST THEM HERE! **************** The Eleven O'Clocker and Charlie Adam CHARLIE ADAM...Blackpool have rejected Birmingham City's £2 million offer...this may come to a head now...if the player kicks off it may be a case of selling to the highest bidder...if he doesn't then he won't be moving...let Birmingham do the running and jump in when the price is sorted...if it ever is. [...] nicko's piece in The Mirror reported that Sunderland have joined Birmingham and Rovers in the bid to sign Charlie Adam: Blackpool spark three-way bidding war for Adam (thanks to Steve Moss for the link) Today, there were further developments on the Charlie Adam front: Sky Sports, 10 January 2011 "Sky Sports News understands Aston Villa have had a £2.5million bid for Charlie Adam knocked back by Blackpool." Villa have Adam bid rejected: Seasiders snub approach for talismanic midfielder (thanks to Gambit217 for the link and to Pete1981 and LessThanJake for the alert) Walshy brought the Villa bid up again later, to which there was the following response: [...] The next move is down to Charlie Adam. If he kicks off then Blackpool will sell to the highest bidder. I get the feeling this is going to cost a bit more than expected. Could do with it being sorted one way or another. If you are going to play the football Steve Kean wants to play he is absolutely key. How much were you/they expecting it to cost? It's really down to Blackpool to put a valuation on him...or the player to react once a bid comes in that he thinks is fair...watch this space. There are not many good players out there, so it's no shock that there is a rush for someone of his calibre. Everybody concerned could do with this being settled fast. But don't count on it. **************** Salgado on transfers Today's Lancashire Telegraph carries an interview with Salgado on the subject of transfers and recent events at the club. Lancashire Telegraph, 10 January 2011 Salgado: Blackburn Rovers must forget about signing superstars **************** Pablo Mouche Sky Sports, 10 January 2011 "Blackburn and West Ham are rivalling Birmingham for the signature of Argentine starlet Pablo Mouche, skysports.com understands." Blues battling for Mouche: Blackburn and West Ham also want Argentine (thanks to bacup blue for the link) It's a 'Barry McIntosh talks to Sky Sports News about a client no-one is interested in' story. **************** Fan talk Finally, some random snippets from members' contributions to the thread, which include a rare sighting of rebelmswar in action but hopefully not out of action. First of all, philipl's take on the Samba-Villa situation: If Arsenal come in for Samba he goes. If Villa come in for Samba he stays. Warnock probably coming in on a straight transfer- none of this swap nonsense. Torgeir posted a poignant summation of many fans' views of the window so far, diplomatically omitting what Ronaldinho may have an appetite for: To sum things up: Duff - Fulham won't sell so that's a dead end. Demba Ba - is showing his true colours as a loose cannon - stay clear. Adam - Birmingham trying, Blackburn waiting. Only realistic deal at the moment. RSC - haggling, might happen towards the end of the window. Ronaldinho - Doesn't have the appetite for the EPL. Anyone got anything to add on this? I was optimistic about this window, not so much anymore. And from the sublime... I assumed the one billion figure was the number of chickens that they owned; your post has comforted me no end. Morris Minors are very collectible nowadays - whom else but a multi billionaire would own one? I like Adam, Adam is nice. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
