I am not naive, I dont believe a word Mr Duxbury of the club tell me. Doesn't mean I have to turn most football threads into "where is the bellamy money"......It becomes very boring.


Exactly my original point before getting picked up by bristol. The phrase where is the bellamy money illustrates nothing more than short sighted ignorance

Most of that comes from the post-match press conference. Doubt there'll be one when we have no weekend match.

Apparrently until it suits to quote him..........................

Unless he's indicating he also thinks the Bellamy replacement comment is usually in relation to something our CEO said. Or at least that he is anyway.

The topic of striker purchases, the indications given by the board about who might be purchased, and what people think of the eventual result probably is on topic in the summer transfer window thread.

Cole, Ashton, Hines, Nouble, Diamanti and Sears



Zola himself said that Nouble and Hines are n´t ready for PL football, yet many on here seem to want them to play as backup for Cole. If the coach says that they are not ready on a ressconeference, what makes you think they are?

Besides, Ashton injured probably for the entire season, Sears on a season long loan and Diamanti 26 years and very unproven on top level, I like what I seen from him, but it would be very naive to expect an iimidiate impact in Premier League.

Which leaves us with........Carlton Cole. That´s one....

Can´t wait to see Dixon though

i bring up the question that so many people on here hate....
Why didn't WE get Marlon Harewood back on loan?
Going to Newcastle!? pisstake!!

15 goals for us in the premierleague THAT season.
under Zola he'dve done good im sure....always played with his heart here. can't be worse a gamble than anything we have already. :crest:

Marlene was crap as a centre forward. He cannot play with his back to the goal and cannot head the ball in a determined direction. The reason he did well for us is that he used to play wide right and run at defenders. Would you really drop any of our right-sided players in Marlene's favour ?

i agree about the back to goal thing.
but running on to knock downs and throwing himself about not a bad option to have on the bench.
at least we know he has goals in him at this level

Thats true now Micheal, but for months quite the opposite was true, and you were staunchly defending said person.

Perhaps in a few months you will be asking where Bellamy's replacement is?

Of course we do Mick.

Which is exactly where certain people said it would end up, while others were sure that we would sign "his replacement" in this last window.

Which brings us nicely back to Diamanti......

You beat me to my more impolite post of -



"SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP FFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"



I'm glad you did because that would have been rude on a public forum where everyone's opinion is valid and worthy of posting.

Many thanks kth :thup:

Its a very worn subject. If the club have to meet bankers demands surely we should accept this. We have bought in players and i am certain we will do a fair bit more buying and selling in the future. Eggy, god bless him over committed the club and it seems the likes of Quashie are happily collecting their 25k a week sitting at home. We can do nothing as he is under contract.
In 12 months time we should have seen the last of the dead wood of our books. Hopefully of course the club will be taken over, however our financial position should be more stable.

With our squad i believe Zola will play with a front 3 of Diamanti Cole and Jiminez. So if Cole stays fit we will be ok. I also understand Deano is doing as much training as he is ever likely to. So i can see him being involved soon, I HOPE.

I think we have a great little squad, thin on the ground maybe. As long as we are allowed to strengthen when players become available it will be ok.

Mark Viduka, PL experienced - out of contract - wouldn't cost the earth - a big unit to hold up the ball - would be good for a handful of goals...I know there's plenty of you gonna shout NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, but for crying out loud - who else is out there with PL experience and can hold his own in the PL and is currently available that we can realistically bring in - that's right NO-ONE else.apart from MV and perhaps Marlene.
