If we bought a huge target man with an aerial threat like Das Boot imagine getting a good, proven set piece taker (like Sigurdsson). Adding him to a decent creative attack (like Rooney/Klassen) and if there was a doubt about movement, we could get one of the most mobile, dynamos in a the current game (like Sandro). The stuff of fantasy football. All we need now is to develop a solid defensive spine with some fresh additions of youth and quality (Keane/Pickford) added to a solid central pair (like Schneiderlin and Gueye). Imagine if we had a large squad with plenty of choice for options and rotation. And if we are being really greedy, imagine if we had a strong under 23 squad with some class acts on the horizon, chomping at the bit to be unleashed.

Just imagine if we had the money eh. Maybe even move from our beloved but tired home to a superb dockside high capacity development and have an owner who puts their money where their mouth is. Dreeeeam. Dream dream dreammmm. Aggggh!

Quick slap me, I was having a nightmare that I was a Kopite.

Phew, Im a blue. How things have changed in te past couple of years eh! Cant feckin wait for the start of the season, even with that tough start. BRING IT ON!!

I think you make a good point about the variety of our attackers. If the next striker (after Rooney) who comes in is a bit of a target man and a beast in the air, and we do land Sigurdsson, then we've got lots of options to mix things up

Got to say Bas Dost has an impressive scoring record and we don't have much aerial presence at the moment, wouldn't be the worst move imo

Add this to the intelligence of Rooney, the tigerish nature of Klaassen, Sigurdsson's set piece prowess, Sandro's long range shooting ability and the raw pace of Henry and Lookman and we've got plenty of options to mix things up
You think Lou Bega knocked it out of the park with Mambo number 1?!No but he kept at it!

Mirallas' snideness
Bolasie's unpredictability
Lennon's workrate
Niasse's.......big smile?

It will make so much difference this season going into a game not knowing who or how we're going to line up.
Cordiali saluti, motherfuckers.

If we sign him can his song be to the tune of Du Hast by Rammstein?

Koeman probably just wants a player who a midfielder can knock the ball up to and be able to follow it in. It must have been so frustrating the past few years for any midfielder who wanted to get forward to knock it up top and then wait a second or two to see if it came bouncing off Lukaku's shins or whether it was safe to vacate your area and follow it in to try and create something.
Makes a big difference to how quickly you can turn defence into attack, especially with us buying so many players capable and wanting to get in and around the box and get on the scoresheet.

A bit off subject. I saw a tweet earlier that Farhad Moshiri goes with the Eleanor Rigby tune.
Farhad Moshiri got out the wad
in the window to buy a new squad. etc..... Leave it to you songsters. :)

Could squeeze in a non sensical line about Duncan Mackenzie

I'm struggling to see another option, who could get more goals than Lukaku did and while we don't need to replace all goals directly, a goalscoring striker is needed. The main concern would be his injury record, he's missed a seasons worth of games in the last 4 years, but when he's been fit he's been prolific and he's not had any major injuries in last season. If he was an injury bomb waiting to happen, Sporting could have taken £35m already.

If we got other options to go alongside him and just accepted from outset that he could miss 1/4 of contract through injury, we can have other options to step in or take over. We might also be able to get a fair amount of the payment based on performance numbers in terms of games played.

£50m would be a big gamble, but I don't see many better ones. He scored 4 goals in a match, a month after the interview.

I don't fancy £50m (is that really the fee??) definitely looks like Ronald wants a big back to goal merchant to bring Klaassen, Sandro and Gylfi into the box to finish.

I'd have Rondon for £20-£30m personally.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

I love you Brap2 but I think you've lost the plot there.

€60m release clause, and they seem genuinely unwilling to entertain offers much below that. They appear to be more building team around him, than expecting or planning for his departure.

When he left Wolfsburg, they wanted to keep him, but his contract was running down and he wanted to play more. Newcastle were in for him last summer and he chose Sporting over them, they have bid again this summer, but seemed to drop out and said they didn't want to get into a bidding war.

If a team was interested to the point of paying the release clause, then they can somewhat chose when, as Sporting have only influence, not authority if release clause is met.
