  1. Abel Hernandez or Marcus Berg please. Even better than Campbell.
  2. Good stuff. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love it to happen. A spine of Campbell, Raddy, Schwegler, Ziegler, Tasci and Lopar - plus Duke, Yeboah etc - would get everyone very excited.
  3. Link to the Turkish newspaper site? I think you talked up a Tasci link around 6 mths ago - and it does make some sense given the Babbel connection - but I’d like to see the sauce.
  4. The power of the forum? Well, Taurus, with a bit of help from PaperSun
  5. Are you basing that on anything or just the article that he said that he might be tempted to go back to hometown Huddersfield?
  6. Are you saying the club has probably got their man already Taurus? If so, will indeed stop speculating and just wait for the news...maybe...
  7. And can we get a replacement in a different position
  8. If they can get that gun player, great. These guys are the type of guaranteed goal scorers we can get if that’s not possible. Berisha hasn’t played in Japan - so truly a non-event rather than a misfire (but might make him within cap). Imagine if we had five gun foreigners + Ziegler + Berisha.
  9. There are guaranteed successful A-League strikers we should be looking at, unless this proposed Championship striker is an absolute gun. If we’ve discussed Bobô recently, I don’t remember it. Even at 34 and smurfy, I’d take him in a heartbeat. His 27 goals A-League season was absurd. https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/bobo/leistungsdatendetails/spieler/37944 In the same vein, surely Berisha can’t stay in Japan for long. Babbel thinks the secret to the A-League is to get good Australians in and Berisha has citizenship (I think). It’s hard to look past him as striker unless you have a Bobô-standard marquee coming through the door. I still can’t stand him but that’s softened since he’d been away from the league. And if he’s going to score 13+ in red and black (like all seven other A-League seasons he’s played), I’m onboard. He’s under contract til Dec, but he’s not playing for Sanfrecce so could suit everyone for him to move. Bit hard to stomach, but this is the way to get the guaranteed goals we need. The Berisha bonus is that we would still have another foreign (and possibly marquee) spot open if he’s Aussie and we could get him under cap.
  10. Haha sure. What are Campbell and McGoldrick? Schwegler was mid-70s IIRC...
  11. What do people think of David Nugent as marquee CF? I can imagine the WSW press release now: ‘...the experienced Premier League winner and England international has signed as our new marquee striker. Nugent said, “When I was at Leicester, Mark Schwarzer was always telling me about everything that the West had to offer, and it’s long been a dream of mine to [insert westie experience here - what do you reckon would persuade him?]”’ https://footballleagueworld.co.uk/his-availability-on-a-free-transfer-may-also-suit-certain-championship-sides-recently-departed-derby-man-six-point-opinion/
  12. ...with the hope we see some GK departures too.
  13. Campbell might be beyond our reach?Based on other comments here, I’d guess it will be one of the following (in rough order of preference and beard rating for Taurus): - Stephen Naismith - David McGoldrick (great beard) - David Nugent (marginal beard) - Lee Gregory - Conor Washington (marginal beard) - James Vaughan - Freddie Sears
  14. Not forgetting that the guy is an absolute hometown hero after investing in Wisla and playing for free. Can’t imagine what would motivate him to come to Australia if money isn’t a thing for him and he has that level of adoration at his first club. http://www.sportbible.com/football/news-reactions-take-a-bow-kuba-blaszczykowski-to-join-boyhood-club-wisla-krakow-without-a-wage-20190113
  15. On those suggestions: would definitely take Naismith, probably McGoldrick, Washington less appealing (although much better age).
