I'm extremely pessisimistic about our chances of getting in a striker before the end of the month.

 

Imagine going into the season with Shola as our only striker, it doesn't bear thinking about.

Listening to Talksport this morning, they had an audio clip of Kuyt saying there was only one club he was interested in and hopefully things will be sorted in the next couple of days.

 

While no club was mentioned, Talksport are convinced it's Liverpool...

Yeah SSN are running the story think its pretty much a done deal now...

 

Oh well i don't think he was for us anyway....Martins will be a much better investment / player / fit into the side so blessing in disguise....

 

At least we're almost at the end of this ridiculous Kuyt saga now (it seems)

 

Only the gravesen saga and martins saga to focus on now...

We're fucked tbh, I really can't see us getting anyone other than maybe someone like Nugent and then we will end up paying through the nose because he's English and everyone else knows the situation we are in.

And what the fuck is going on with Graveson? He's obviously surpluss to requirements at Madrid, Roeder has stated his interest so why don't we just go and sign him? We're obviously not in negotiations with any strikers so what exactly are we doing other than repeatedly scouting the same players?

The club is an absolute shambles, there are absolutely no excuses for us to be in the situation we are. If we go into the season with just what we have now, Roeder and the fat man should both be sacked.

Apparently Celtic is his preferred destination. Yesterday Danish media ran a story about Gravesen to decide if he wanted to join Celtic in 48 hours (now 24).. Dunno if this is concrete or just pure speculation – no quotes from the man himself, but his agent talked about CL-football being an important factor.

 

Gravesen looked good in the 2-0 win against Poland last nite: 2 assist and good all-round play. His best game in 2 years imo.

I'm sure I read yesterday that he was sick of waiting for us while we were going after a striker.

Well appart from the constatnt scouting there's precious little evidence that we are doing anything on that front so why are we letting things slip with him?

Plus if he wants to play shite teams week in, week out with a minimal chance of progressing from the CL group stages he can fuck right off.

Chairman Freddy Shepherd and boss Glenn Roeder travelled to Dublin to watch Kuyt in action for his country last night. But they were disappointed to learn that the 26-year-old’s move to Anfield had already been agreed.

 

It's from the Sun like, but still. Laurel and frigging Hardy.

Certainly not. The fact that Liverpool have Bellamy & Kuyt while we have a crocked Owen and Shola is pissing me off.

It can't be any less damaging than having the club run by people who have clearly not foreseen or addressed the urgency of signing a replacement for our strikers that have either departed or been fucked for the season!
