I've rated King for a few years, He'd be good on either side of DCL (if Koeman wants to keep it as a front 3)
Be good in a 2 also, but I cant see Koeman dropping Sandro or Rooney to play King.

just want to hear the commentators say King Niasse!

Signing in january is tricky at the best of times,niasse,dcl,sandro will do for me.Lets not forget our leader wanted the lob sided tally of goals shift to our trio of sig,rooney and klassen,goals from all over the pitch.Ronald has stated lets get real over our expectations,if that truly is the whole sum of it the best we can expect is a cup run and the team having more shape along the way.
We are forgetting Coleman and Bolasie back soon,and i reckon if koeman sorts out a line up that works we could well look a real good outfit at the end of the season without wasting any more cash.

I'd argue he would be guaranteed first team at this stage. I like the look of him over the pst couple of seasons. That was a great finish against us.

In three months time Sandro may have settled, DCL may have come on a lot more and Niasse may prove a valuable squad player who chips in with a few important goals. No-one knows what state we'll be in come January, so taking a punt on a still unproven top level player might not be necessary.

Fingers crossed. I just don't think King is a bad option.

I'd pay 40m for Giroud in a fucking heartbeat. Can't really blame him for wanting to stay and fight for his place at Arsenal, they're bigger and better than us currently.

You'd pay 40 mill for a 31 year old? I'd go as high as 30 I think, but even then that would be pushing it.

His bird doesn't want to move north anyway so it's a nonsense story.

Giroud, definitely @ £30m

King? Would prefer to try and tempt Matt Ritchie

Bonkers.

I'm not so sure Giroud is what we need now. Don't get me wrong he's decent but with the other players we have I think we need more movement up top. We don't have enough pace around him to make it work with him as the focal point, in my opinion.

We have a lot of players who like to come to the ball and nothing going the other way. Niasse comes on, makes a few forward movements and we immediately look a more threatening proposition on goal. If we had someone in that mould a level above him who can also hold the ball up as well it would suit our play a whole lot better.

I'd rather invest in younger if we're going above 40 mill. Giroud is a great player, no doubt, but his age and lack of pace would put me off paying mega big money for him.

It's a mute point anyway as this isn't going to happen.

I'd pay 40 mill for Benteke who has pace, is a decent target man with goals in him too, plus we'd get him as he approaches his peak years.

Benteke isn't fit to lace Giroud's boots imo. It might be bonkers, but 40m isn't that much these days. If Liverpool payed that much for Chamberlain I'd happily pay it for Giroud.

I think he's a decent striker, and yes I agree Giroud is better at present, but how many years do we get out of Giroud? And he's another slow player.

And is he really any better than Niasse? ;)

Won't be any striker coming in Jan if results and performances don't improve. These funds may well go towards paying off Koeman and his backroom staff if this rubbish continues to be churned out.

Now 40 million has been mentioned as Giroud's price and people are agreeing. This thread has lost any credibility in my mind and probably won't be sussed as ridiculous, till his price hits 50 mill. What a joke. lolol

Even if ~Koeman gets Giroud, Giroud will be isolated,  same as DCL be's iscolated when he's playing alone up front.

I guess Koeman thinks every player is like Lukaku, can hold onto the ball, out muscle 3 defenders and score.. or get his team mates involved..

so many times this season and last, our main striker was around 40 yards away from the rest of the team..

How is that even possible, let alone a tactic that Koeman thinks is usable?? sounds like a Martinez idea its so fucking absurd.
