Rumour Mill-Lots of Tabloid Gossip

Rumour Mill-Lots of Tabloid Gossip

Owen Coyle could well be a busy man this week, according to the Daily Mirror he 'is ready for a transfer blitz'

Apparantly we are bringing in Portuguese defender Ricardo Silva and Czech midfielder Martin Abraham for a week's trial.

The Clarets will also step up the bids for Celtic striker Derek Riordan and Sheffield Wednesday midfielder Glenn Whelan.

Although we could be about to lose striker Andy Gray with Charlton ready to make a £1.5m move!

A Swedish media site (Sport Bladet) has also linked the Clarets with Olof Guterstam, a 25yr old striker currently playing for Swiss side, IF Brommapojkarna.

He scored 17 goals for them last season and helped them gain promotion. He also recently got called up to the Swedish squad and has two caps against Ecuador and Venezula. He was on trial at Leeds but appears to have turned them down, with Burnley his next port of call.

Trouble is do you believe all this speculation or is it just like our Blimp full of helium hot air making you laugh?

Just like the blimp we may have to say to the tabloids..GET LOST!!

..and still we wait for something definite! I wish we could get shut of Charlton though

Well I hope he doesn't go! but if we get double what we paid for him, it might work out ok! That is as long as OC signs at least 4 new players in the next 2 weeks!

Gray has to stay in my opinion, although he hasnt scored in recent matches, Im sure the form would return and I think the team will suffer without him. I am not convinced we could bring anybody in that could settle quickly enough if we still mean business for this season being only 4 points off 6th. Get the money for Laffs instead if we have to sell anybody and build from there, with Gray as the lynchpin

Well it's never nice to upset the balance at such a critical point in the season i suppose! Lafferty would command a higher price too, with age being on his side!

I would despair if we lost Gray especially if we didnt bring in a big name replcement with a proven goalscoring ability at this level
