Danny Graham poised to join Brentford on loan from Sunderland until January  

  • Championship side set to swoop for Danny Graham
  • Sunderland striker surplus to requirements at the Stadium of Light
  • Graham endured tricky loan spells at Hull and Middlesbrough  

By SAMI MOKBEL FOR MAILONLINE
PUBLISHED: 13:07, 27 October 2014 UPDATED: 13:07, 27 October 2014

Progressive Brentford are set to complete the loan signing of Sunderland striker Danny Graham until January.
The 29-year-old has found first team opportunities limited at the Stadium of Light since signing for £5million from Swansea City two years ago. 
Graham has been out on loan at Hull City and then Middlesbrough but struggled to find the net consistently.

Graham (pictured playing for the Under 21s against Leicester) has struggled for first team opportunities 


Gus Poyet has decided to allow Graham to move on again after playing just two minutes of Capital One Cup football for the Black Cats this season. 
It does represent something of a coup for the Championship Bees, however. 
They have impressed since gaining promotion from League One last season, but have found goals difficult to come by in recent weeks.

I used to live near Brentford when I lived in London, liked them cos' their strip is red and white stripes and black shorts....Brentford is famous for being the only ground in England that has a pub at every corner of the ground. The surrounding land was formerly owned by the Griffin Brewery, hence Griffin Park. If you are feeling thirsty, get there early and have a pint in all four. They are the Royal Oak (a small locals pub), The Griffin (serves Fullers real ale, the one I liked best), The Princess Royal & The New Inn. The New Inn is the favoured pub for away supporters.

I remember Stan (can I keep ot of the betting shop) Bowles and Chpper Harris playing for them.

Only a  short loan for Graham...what on earth are we going to do with him...he has a couple of years left on his contract has he not..our squad is bad enough without him hanging around like a bad smell.

What to do with him indeed.

We all know the problem, we agreed, or ONeill, Byrne or both agreed a massive wage for him so I guess the balls in his court, why should he take a big pay cut because we dropped a bollock I guess.

I am mixed on what to do TBH, yes he is not good enough and he has no future, however my two questions are..

Is he worse than Altidore?
We are paying his wages so are we not better keeping him until January with the view, he is better than nowt, just.

So this story seems to be doing the rounds in London too 

http://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/brentford-set-sign-sunderland-striker-8005276? 

Quote : "Brentford are poised to make a loan move for Sunderland striker Danny Graham.

The Bees, who have been struggling for goals lately, are reported to be lining up a deal to bring the former Swansea City striker to Griffin Park until January.

The 29 year old, who has also had spells with Middlesbrough, Carlisle and Watford and spent time on loan at Hull, Leeds, Blackpool, Darlington and Brentford's opponents on Saturday, Derby.

Graham has found first team opportunities limited at the Stadium of Light since signing for £5million from Swansea two years ago and has had just two minutes of first team action this season, in the Capital One Cup." End quote.

He was another bad buy as it turns out. But no other club could repeat his success at Swansea which attracted a big fee. Hope the lad does well.

Brentford pull plug on loan for Sunderland’s Graham

CHAMPIONSHIP outfit Brentford have pulled the plug on a loan move for Sunderland frontman Danny Graham.

The Bees were expected to pip interest from several Championship outfits to sign Graham on loan until January, with Sunderland picking up the majority of the tab for the 29-year-old’s wages.
But Brentford are understood to have pulled out of the move yesterday - leaving Graham still lingering down Sunderland’s pecking order at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland remain keen to offload Graham - who spent last season out on loan at Hull and then Middlesbrough - with the £5million man fourth choice among Gus Poyet’s strikers.
But Poyet pledged earlier this month not to freeze Graham out of proceedings, with the former Swansea striker an unused substitute on three occasions in the Premier League this season.
And with Sunderland continuing to assess the foot injury suffered by fellow frontman Steven Fletcher in last weekend’s defeat to Arsenal, Graham at least provides some cover for Poyet.
Meanwhile, Sunderland defender Santiago Vergini has been left out of the Argentina squad for next month’s internationals.
Vergini earned a second cap for his country in this month’s friendly against Hong Kong after being recalled to the international fold by his former Newell’s Old Boys manager and new Argentina boss Gerardo Martino.
But with Martino experimenting prior to next summer’s Copa America, Vergini will not play a part in the friendlies against Portugal and Croatia.
That won’t be unwelcome news for Poyet after Vergini scored a spectacular own goal in the 8-0 rout at Southampton, following his return from Argentina’s game in the Far East four days earlier.

That's the big risk we take when signing players...
What constitutes 'value for money' ?

Yes, money does talk, but if we buy a pig in a poke we can't offload...

Says a lot about Graham when he would rather pick up his wage packet than move and take the hit in wages.
By that i mean there must have been offers for him in the summer but he chose to stay here pick up his money. He is quite entitled to do that by the way but you would think he would want to play football after all your lucky if you get 10 years at the top.

I can't stand these mercenaries who would rather sit back and do nowt rather than take a pay cut and actually play the game they are meant to...Their careers are short enough, and they are not exactly struggling for cash..

Going back a few years prior to short contract big moves, players were crying to the world about being slaves to be sold to the highest bidder and their club got to do what they wanted to them. They have the upper hand now and the clubs in the search for success or survival just do not see they are being held to ransom by ordinary players. Try drawing up a two year contract to be paid on success related salary paid when the player leaves.

Bosman and Sky, the biggest blight in the evolution of British football.
