Well there’s talk that we are looking at Berg also. He’s over 30 also.

Spat my coffee out this morning when I read the Valbuena signing. After checking out this most recent season, it actually isn't horrible.

He was used as an impact sub or rotation player. 13 appearances, 9 starts in turkish league. He tallied 3 goals and 7 assists. Solid production. If we get that from him in Greece that is an upgrade already, even at 34.

It also looks like West Ham offered us 10 mil for Fortounis. It looks like we will decline. Asking price is 18 mil.


Also, as far as Berg, that's an over 30 signing I really don't mind. His strike rate has not really slowed down. Was great for Pao, and has been unstoppable in the Arab league(not that it really means much) but the guy gets goals. Something we need from our strikers and have not really gotten.

Apparently we will be signing Skrtel also, from Fenerbahce  where Valbuena came from all Lao. Same Fenerbahce team that struggled and was in a relegation dogfight .
I’m not liking these free transfers of players well into their 30’s.
We have a decent core , let’s improve on it .

Apparently martins wants the deals done early so he can build the team (#logic!).   I saw the skrtl rumor as well but my guess is lots of fener players will have rumors to be moving away. 

As for Valbuena... is our rotation is podence, masouras, lazaros and him that is decent.

Valbuena is shit, old, and can't find the net. The exact wingers we should NOT sign. If he wasn't a semi big name the owner can trick the fans into thinking is a big name signing, he wouldn't be here.

Same with Skrtel, and most of the shit players we get from Turkey. it seems none of them are any good at all (Pino, Kazim, Da Costa, Eminike ...)

I made a mistake earlier with Valbuena.

He has 22 total appearances. 13 starts and 9 games as a sub.

Makes his 3 goals seven assists appear less interesting. I hope he's an alternate at best.

Would Skrtel be an improvement over Miranda and Vukovic as an alteranate?

If Skrtl comes in to backup cisse and meriah I am ok with this move with Vuk and Miranda moving out.

My point exactly kru.

If Skrtel is coming in to replace one of the departing Vuk or Miranda, even at 34 he is better than either of them.

If we end up losing Cisse and he is expected to be the starter, that's where there will be many problems.

Looks like Skrtel is resigning with Fener.


As for Eduardo Henrique, I'm always weary of Brazilian players. Since Giovanni and Rivaldo we haven't had any really pan out for us. Diogo was half a season of goals, then shit after his injury.

It's a low risk young transfer but he has hopped around the brazilian league... I'm assuming he will be replacing Natxo.

In other transfer news, it has been reported that we approached Leicester City for Algerian  Islam Slimani, striker on loan to Fenerbahce. The player rejected the move as he wants to move elsewhere in the premier league.

The theme of this early start to the transfer window is Fenerbahce rejects.....

West Ham opted not to extend Samir Nasri's contract. He is 31 years old and we have supposedly shown interest.

I remember his time fondly at Arsenal, however he is injury prone. Even if he's free I'm not sure he would last a full season for us.

Rumors of a 18 mil offer for fortounis from the EPL

I think we say yes, right?
