He comes from Serbia, he'll ******* murder ya.
Agree with this post 100%.
The fact that he knows how to score goals away from home at all should be enough for us to be interested.
Swap him for Gray and there wouldn’t be any complaints I doubt.
Tbh I'd complain, because we need a striker who can actually play football, and can actually operate as a lone striker. We have far too many talented attacking midfielders to actually make playing two up top a policy, and for far too many of them their best position is operating behind the striker, which is the only position Matty has ever been able to operate successfully in himself; even at Derby, it took a second season and Rowett working this out, to get him performing at anything like the level his talent suggests he should.
Bringing in Vydra again would just be a middling fix to a problem we don't need to have, and entrench us in that issue for the near future as well, when in the same number of moves we could fix our problems and give us a lot more versatility to boot.
I was talking more as doing a swap to bring Vydra into our pool of strikers, not necessarily as the big hope to be our new No.9. I’m well aware of the need for a new quality striker but I’m just saying, surely there wouldn’t be many complaints if we had Vydra over Gray right now.
Fairplay, I'd have been happy to have him this season g0ne, although I would also rather Gray had played more, regardless of his abysmal touch and finishing, because he is at least capable of movement.
Would love us to try for Philipp Max, a left back from Augsburg who has 13 assists in the league for the season. Not too sure how much he would cost and there would probably be a lot of competition, but he probably would sort out our left back travesty
Give it a few days and we can make Everton pay for him for us...
Thing is we had him and let him go, scoring 5 goals away from home in the championship isn't setting the world on fire, He was great under Zola some of the link up play with Vydra and Almen Abdi was a joy to watch but I think I recall Slav played him at home more in the promotion season going for Iggy/Deeney in away games especially late in the season. There's also no way he could play up top on his own in the prem
I'd like to see a marqee forward who is better than Gray/Deeney/Okaka and the rest of the funds spent on the defence, keep the other three, I know they haven't scored much but they have caused problems and all sides need 4 strikers
I’m not saying anything different. People are taking what I’ve said out of context. We will need 2/3 strikers in the squad, same as this year. I’d like one of real quality to come in and be the main guy. And I’m just saying if behind that, we could swap Vydra for Gray, then I would. I’d swap him for any of our strikers if I’m honest but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t buy someone else.
To be fair I reckon the majority would swap Gray for Vydra after all one has got the goals and one hasn't in a Watford shirt, to say Gray can be frustrating is an understatement. The big difference is the division though as Deeney racked up 20 a season in the Championship, it's a tough division but there's no denying it's a second tier league despite the 'big' clubs in it, Vydra will be judged on his prem record and given Gino knows all about him then it's unlikely he'd return given they let him go
Annoyed that Brighton are close to signing Florin Andone.
A couple of suggestions from the Argentinian Primera. Number one is Ignacio Pusetto of Huracan. A right footed attacking midfielder and winger he rival Cristian Pavon who will be going to the World Cup in his supply of assists and goals. Blessed with great stamina and body strength and technically adept with a good variety of crosses he is a little suspect defensively but a cheaper proposition compared to Pavon but not far off him in terms of quality.
Cristian Lema of Belgrano has been a bit of a late developer. A rugged physical player who is comfortable on the ball and a real threat at set pieces he should be going to the World Cup as one of the top five Primera centerbacks this season. Conti had already been snapped up by Benfica while Barboza can surely not be far off a European move. Playing for Belgrano however is a drawback as it does not have the cachet of the big five Buenos Aires clubs of whom Centurion, Pavon and Armani are likely World Cup players for Argentina.
