Why are we looking for more strikers? Are any of our strikers on their way out?

- Sebastián Coates was being linked to us, but Benfica came out and denied those rumors. I really would've liked him on the team after the performances he put in during Copa America. He was voted best young player! Now their saying Porto are after him. No surprise there :laugh
- Eliseu from Malaga says he has a proposition from Benfica and I wouldn't mind having him as a back up winger. Plus his Portuguese :up
- And once again Nicklas Bendtner is being rumored. I honestly think we are wasting our time with this guy. I mean I would rather keep Cardozo then buy Bendtner from Arsenal for €10Mill.


Bendtner is in Lisbon but he was speaking with Sporting from what I have heard....

So I guess there is an official negotiation going on for Cardozo and Hugo which I thought was BS originally. As much as I'm not a fan of him getting 15million plus Hugo for Cardozo would be a good deal.

I don't know what's gotten into LFV but he's become a massive hustler this transfer window. He got great free agents plus cheap values on players like Witsel. Sold Fabio and Roberto for crazy amounts that we never thought we would get. He even pushed on that kid from Santos to inflate his value so Porto ended up paying 15million for an unproven talent lol.

15 million plus Hugo will be sweet. Hugo and Cardozo play the same game to me.

Yeah the lazy, poaching, style. If we could save some wages and free up some PT for the likes of Witsel, Jara, Rodrigo, etc., it could be a good move. We are overloaded with forwards and wingers and sadly, big Tacuara was not missed yesterday. However, at some point, the physical presence, and especially that big boot on the free kicks, will be sorely missed. Anyone can poach goals and miss half their penalty shots, no loss there...

Earlier in the week we were linked to Dorin Goga (FC Timişoara) and now today its Sergio Floccari (Lazio). I have no clue who these forwards are and I don't think we should be wasting our time with these guys who are pushing thirty.

I think the papers are just looking for someone. They don't realize that we don't need a replacement for Cardozo and that the club has done an amazing job at transforming the squad.

Bringing those two unknown players will be a nightmare. :scared They are both not that young. And I agree we don't need any more replacements, if they do come to the club, they will for sure not get a starting place ever.

I actually think a Cardozo for Almeida scenario wouldn't be the worst. We need Capdevila on the CL roster surely? Almeida would allow that and he has the physical qualities that Cardozo has, even if he isn't quite as good, but since i think we have established that Cardozo isn't the ideal fit for the new system, we only need a player of his qualities on the bench.

They both have the exact type of play, poacher, power shots, great in the air.

Before the window is out we need:

Central defender capable of covering Luisao and Garay.
Right sided defender to cover Maxi.
Conclusion of the striker novel
Sell Jara, Jardel.

Miguel Vítor would have started against Gil Cicente if it wasn't for his injury. Jardel was getting the run around, he is a backup's backup.

Jara has shown so much potential there's no way I would be happy with him going. As for Jardel, he's not great but he didn't cost us the game either. Personally I'm happy with Vitor being our first sub option once he's healed up.
