You're the striker scout this summer...

Obviously a player like Zlatan Ibrahimovic would be brilliant for us

playing a 4-5-1 but he's out of our league price wise. We'll probably

sign 2 strikers who most of us have never heard of but if it was up to you...

 

Personally I think we have to wait until the end of the season to see which strikers

have found their feet before making decisions but I'd obviously take Owen back and or Defoe.

 

Also Jakubu and or Mutu I think would be worth a gamble.

 

What about you?

Recommend 4 strikers who you think we could afford and who can actually score.

Think we may have to think about strikers for the league games and maybe a different player for the CL type games.

 

In the PL pace and power are the key attributes, ideally you sign someone with pace and power with the class and awareness but this typeof player is tough to find and very expensive.

 

Players like Defoe, Owen, Andy J even a Darren Bent type player will make their own chances because of their pace, these players are also pretty selfish in front of goal which is what we need.

 

However of the above players only Owen and maybe Defoe i think could cut it in the CL and a slightly different style of football. Here you need a striker with clever movement and good first touch, ideally with pace and power. Someone like David Villa i think is an excellent all round forward, quick and strong and he scores plenty of goals.

2 a bit lesser known (though still quite well known to some):

 

Bojinov

Nihat

 

Then 2 more familiar:

 

Kuyt

Defoe

 

Nihat would be an interesting buy. Personally I'd rather someone with prem experience as

it would be a bit less of a risk I guess.

I'll have a go.

 

Johan Elmander - Brøndby IF £4m

Johan is a big strong striker, with good technical skills. Actually he is close to winning a spot on the swedish WC team.

 

Andy Johnson - CP - £6mil

More english, always nice. Johnson proved with a high goal tally, that he can find the net. I still think he is worth the gamble.

 

Miroslav Klose - Werder Bremen - ??? (guess around £5mil)

A great player in the air, and with a proven goalscoring record in a big league. Klose should be a target for us. Anyone who has seen him play can agree that he is leathal. Buy him before the WC, as he would definatly score some goals for the home side

 

Raul Tamudo - Espanyol - £8mil

Tamudo has for a long time been Espanyols go to guy. He scores on a regular basis and has a nack for finding the holes. A hard worker and I think he would fit perfectly.

 

Nuno Gomes - Benfica - £7mil

Another great player in the air (see the pattern) Gomes has been playing the lone striker for years now. He reminds me a lot of Baros. Though Gomes is not that technical he is stronger in the air, good target man and leathal in front of goal.

 

Kris Boyd - Rangers - ???

 

Have seen him play only a few times, but he looks like a real poacher. Swap him with Crouch.

 

 

 

I also strongly recommend that we find a buyer for Cissé and send Morientes back to Spain. I honestly do not see a future in those guys.

I'd say Klose is similar to Crouch in what he brings to the team.

 

Boyd - I'd agree with but seeing as he's just signed for Rangers and likely to be on a 4 + year contract... Still recon Riordan would be worth a punt and cheap too.... plus he's prolly been kicked to fk in the SPL so the PL would be easy for him physically! - not sure how he'd cope with the standard thoufh.

 

Can say much about your otherr choices as I dont know of them.

Miroslav Klose >If that's the German international you're talking about then

I think he's very one dementional. I don't think he's any better than what we have

and I'm not sure he'd score many in our league. Of course you never know.

Whats up with the Kuiyt hype. Saw him play last week and he does look very mediocre. Klass Jan Huntelaar is a much better prospect, and I think he has already outscored Kuiyt.

Accoring to Bild (german newszeitung) nobodys scored more goals from headers than Klose in Europe this year. Also he can boast from having the highest scoring percentage...

Fair play. Haven't see him in ages to be honest.

kuyt is very average, though some people just like to mention players that has been linked with liverpool on previous occasions. there are several very promising strikers out on the marked.

I quite rate Johnson.

 

It happens that Simon Jordan is a member of the gym I go to. Chatted to him a few times - nice bloke. Think Johnson will only go if he really really pushes it and says he won't stay etc.
