Think the idea was that the target man would be laying the ball off/ knocking it down to him and his runs from deep into the box.

Probably the biggest casualty from not signing the striker.

100% This.

We haven't had a look at him yet in a system he is suited to but I'm hoping Silva has him in his plans.

He captained a young side to a European final. His fans loved him so much they gave him a standing ovation after he left them for a big money move. He spoke well after being left out, showing character, determination and leadership.

But maybe the only thing that matters is what happens on the pitch?

Heard Besiktas have turned attention to other options - one being Manuel Fernandes.

We may as well keep Klaassen around anyway... still keen to prove himself here, seems like a good lad, and he could very well be of some use - unlike a dozen or so others in the squad.

I just don't see where he plays though, especially if Brands wants to give youngsters a go as well. He's not strong enough to tackle a paper bag in central midfield and we have Sig and Vlasic who are more suited to this league as an attacking midfielder. I know he must have something about him to be a well regarded captain of Ajax but I didn't see anything last season to make me think there was a player there.

Still, at £120k/week if we can't offload him as you say we have no choice but to have him around.

If Fernandes is the alternative they were never really interested in Klassen.

He scored but it wasn't a pen. It was a delightful, little chip from a tight angle.

You are right.... but he would have scored a pen if he had played the first half  ;)
