As I said before I don't mind getting him in on a free. If we got a decent striker in as well then that would leave us a canny bit better off than we are upfront. He's better as cover than Best, Ranger and Shola.

Look at like this. Is he better than any of Stoke's strikers?

Press conference tomorrow. Terms agreed, just medical to sort. This is Andy Carroll's replacement, he's scored 5 in his last 24 CCC games. My god.

 

Where did you hear this? a quick google news search and newsnow I can't find anything regarding the Bothroyd transfer.

 

I don't think its such a bad signing on a free, as long as he isn't who we're expecting to lead the line next season, Kuqi is useless as expected and I don't think we'll see much more from Lovenkrands!

Been all over Radio Newcastle, and sources in Wales too.

Yeah but 20 in 42 this season which in all fairness is alright. Big-ish lad too which is a bonus, I wouldn't grumble if we took him on a free.

 

Worst case scenario we sell him back to a championship team next summer for a small profit.

Wait wait wait...Pardew said an international midfielder, right? I don't think Bothroyd is who he was talking about. Anyway, on a free so it isn't too bad I suppose...

He also said continental Europe, is wales classed as continental Europe I don't think so! I wreckon this is good as a second striker, free transfer and decent enough and he is defo not the international central midfielder from continental europe which would indicate some serious early transfer movement which can only be good in persuading others to stay. It is a statement of intent building eaarly and having a full pre season with everyone imho

Would probably take Bothroyd over Lovenkrands and if he shows even the smallest bit of effort then he can have more of an impact than Ameobi. Who knows, he might just be able to chip in with a couple of goals here and there.

 

That said, I hope this doesn't mean we are done for the summer in terms of strikers.

I'd rather have Bothroyd rather than Carlton Cole. Thats the only positive thing I can say about this deal.

 

He is sub-standard and I'd be surprised if he turned out to be much better than Shola/Best.

 

Shola pissed that league, this is a whole new ball game though. A ball game he has failed at several times in his career.

 

Edit: Is he actually even signing or is this just a rumour???

If he does sign then I hope we sign another 2 strikers. At least.

Tbh, I'm not exactly entralled but I'm managing my expectations ;)
