Wait until next week I reckon, the European deadline day is 2 days away.

Club will likely go for some of the remaining foreigners who need a contract.

What’s David luiz up to?

Probably laughing at his former employers.

After last nights thumping Arsenal fans probably wish he was still with them.

UK transfer window closes at 11:00 pm BST on the 31 Aug which i think is 8.00 am on the 1st September. 

This guy is a free agent apparently with Bournemouth interested. Thoughts

There has been speculation about him behind the scenes a few weeks ago (which may just have been fantasy football talk). A player of his pedigree would be quite something, and just about a job guarantee for CR.

Saying that, having three import spots open now does not mean that these spots will be filled. The next incoming player might just be the last major edition before SKO. 

We are looking a little light up front (Hemed, Ibini, Troisi, Petratos the only established attacking players). Another striker seems more urgent and likely.

Here are English forwards who are free agents

Would any of them come downunder?

There is a tick box missing in the transfermarkt database: “is this player willing to come to Australia?”. That would cut back to number of candidates back by 90 percent.

Has Andy Carroll ever been prolific?

.

.

And ....

Would he ever bang in 15 to 20 goals with us, realistically ..... with our current players around him to provide some sort of support ?

.

.

Is he more of a lone wolf striker or would he compliment our Israeli goal machine up front?

I believe he has a reputation for putting a few away, Pints that is.

Andy Carroll is incredibly injury prone. The last thing we need.

Theres no way 10% of available free agents would come here :D

Can we trick them by maybe mispelling as Austria? Then just bait and switch

If you want to bypass football on the ground and lump it in to the box every time then he's your man, seen him many times over the years a bloody handful in the box but holding up and passing triangles not his strongest suite but has mentioned lots of injuries and fitness issues.

Only so many ways you can post, "there is nothing happening" "hurry up sign a centre a back" "when's Mitch Austin coming?"

Rumoured target Scott Dann has signed for Reading.

Expecting the potential last player to be signed and announced within maybe a week or 2 considering the Euro window closes today.

Surely we have a couple more A League signings left. That email from over 3 weeks ago said multiple A league and W league signings to come. In that time we have signed nearly the whole W league team and just Petratos.
