Ah OK, I thought it might just have been that you thought he is a bit of a spunk ;)

Is this good news?

Del Piero spent most of his time in the A League sitting on his arse on the pitch, from what I remember. :rolleyes:

At least it was on the pitch, as opposed to Pio that spent most of it on the bench. Oh, how jaded I've become.

Are there any connections between anyone at our club and Okazaki that make the possibility more plausible, perhaps from his time in Germany?  Also, other than personal relationships, what factors could possibly influence him to want to play for Wanderers as apposed to a club in Japan or Europe I wonder?

Okazaki spent about 5 years in Germany and played for Stuttgart a year after Babbel left as manager.

He is also closely involved with Basara Mainz. 

Not sure if any of this gives him any connections but wouldn't hurt in a relationship with Babbel.. 

Probly heard good things from Ono about us too.....

Lets hope.....

but I have heard there has been interest in the EPL and Championship as well as back in Japan.. Galatasaray keep getting a mention too..

So how about an Okazaki and Juric combination up front?

I can't see Okazaki happening. How often does a regular starter from a top 10 Premier League club move directly to the A-League? He'll be getting offers from all over the place.

Agreed, although he hasn't been a regular starter for the last 2 years. Only started 1 game last season (subbed on in 20 games - no goals) and less than half the games in the previous season.

Still a great player, and always gave 100%, Leicester just went with youth...

He would star in this league - and what a strong front line we would have.

I'm not confident, but it would be sensational if we snagged him.

He has said he wants to play as the main striker at his next club. Rather than play wide etc as he has agreed to do in the past. Maybe the clubs on the other continents aren't offering that.

But I'm sceptical at best that he's coming here.

Il Principe, the Prince! Loved him as a Juve player, in his pomp he was a boss. A fantastic mezzala (think CM in a 4-3-3).

Great player, but his body is dead.

Unfortunately this is our big problem. His body can’t handle the rigors of a top 5 league season. He hasn’t been the same the last few years but that doesn’t mean much when you compare it to our 28 game season. He could easily be managed through a season much like other injury plagued players who have come to our league. Pure class, big win if we could bring him out to Australia.

Don’t forget they’ve got player agent & intermediary Lou Sticca as part of there set up. I wouldn’t dismiss this if he goes for the lifestyle factor but can we compete with the US? They’ll double our best offer (our tax rates effectively 1/2 gross to net wages. Hard for us to be competitive on the wage front.

Or the rumor (as a dead as a body) in a body bag?

Lets be honest, you’re just doing it so old mate (“our legitimate very real journalist annoymous twitter account”) can start another baseless rumor. I know what’s happening :lol:
