Yep. I'd put this one in the believable pile.

At 6'5 he's not entirely dissimilar to Giroud/Pelle style forward Koeman seems to go for, he wouldn't have the PL experience of Giroud but he's a little younger. Good that we're not putting all our eggs in one basket.

Title: Re: Bas Dost
Post by: Ridge on July 09, 2017, 03:27:40 AM
Watched his goals this season, must be about 8 penalties, 15 headers and 10 gangly tap ins.

He's scored 3 hat tricks in last 3 months, he scored 2 goals nine times this season and got 4 in one game. He got 34 goals in 31 league games and was contesting Messi for the Golden shoe.

He scored 4 in a game when he was in Bundesliga, and got 16 in 21 and he also got 32 in 34 in Dutch league.

His conversion rate has been up to around 40% as well, he's not pretty, but he's been prolific in 3 leagues at some point.

How many keepy-ups can he do? No good being able to score shit loads if you don't have sufficient keepy-up prowess to back up your true greatness. Lukaku was able to manage two on a good day, so any advance on that and he's an obvious upgrade.

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.

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

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.

Title: Re: Bas Dost
Post by: Ridge on July 16, 2017, 08:34:26 PM
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.

Title: Re: Bas Dost
Post by: brap2 on July 16, 2017, 10:39:37 PM
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.

Title: Re: Bas Dost
Post by: Ridge on July 16, 2017, 11:11:26 PM
€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.

This guy would be there to score the goals, and they would feed off scraps around him. In a lot of ways he would be an easier type of player to slot in, as Rom was goal focused and played very central and high. He took a while to settle in at Sporting, but he's been averaging 1.5 goals per game in 2017, have a look at stats. (https://www.whoscored.com/Players/34323/Fixtures/Bas-Dost)

I like Rondon, but he's not good enough.

Yeah Sporting though isn't it. And how often in his career has he scored like that?

I think with Sandro, Klaassen and potentially Gylfi we're looking at a system of lots of goalscoring forwards playing off the big man / playmaking forward.

Rooney can do that role superbly of course, but I don't think we want him chasing lost causes or battling for headers with grocks.

I like the look of Rondon. His hold up play looks solid and he's playing in a jarg side. Given more freedom and better team mates I think he could be a good Europa league level forward.

Top scorer with 32 in 34 with Heerenveen in Holland and got 16 in 17 for Wolfsburg in Bundesliga. 2 seasons at Wolfsburg he played about half the games and got a ratio of 1 in 2, which is still not that shabby.

I know people will compare to Zigic, Crouch, Traore and all the other giants. But this guy scores about as many as them put together, he's not just any grock, he's an incredibly effective grock.
Title: Re: Bas Dost

To put the numbers into a bit of perspective, last season he was 3rd highest scorer across European leagues.

And forwards don't have to be back to goal, passing everything off to create stuff. Often a more direct approach can create more chances for others.

Someone like Rondon works very hard, and it's admirable and all that, but he's more of a target man or forward than a striker.
Title: Re: Bas Dost
Post by: Cozzie on July 17, 2017, 01:38:54 AM
As I have said previous, I don't know an awful lot about him other than he scored a fair few last season.

If this is to be the signing we make then so be it because it is obviously the type of player Koeman and Walsh want to fit his system.

They have had 1 full year to get the ethos and style sorted for what they want, so rather than be miffed or excited about the players we buy I am just gonna put full faith in the ones Koeman and Walsh bring in, regardless of whether I think he might be shite or not.

So in that case, I am all for this guy signing.

Bas Dost!

And no - I have never seen him play.

And I still want Lemos as well

And I meant to say - anyone with a name which looks like lyrics straight out of Rammstein - is gonna be gold for songs AND pyrotechnic displays of unprecedented proportions!

I quite like Dost after watching him a lot in the bundesliga . He is a player who hasn't overcome his lack of pace with good reading of the game but our fans might not want a player who similar in style to Sam Vokes . He would however be a great addition if Sporting didn't want so much money ( I need to put this to one side given the price on Coutinho and Mbappe ) . He wouldn't be a like for like Lukaku type signing but given Koeman wants to share out the goals I would have him no problem .

I think Mondays game highlighted why we need a striker with pace, and why Dost wouldnt be the answer. If we didnt have DCL to stretch the pitch we wouldnt have even got out of our half, with Bas Dost he'd have had 2 or 3 around him in a flash and they'd turn the ball over. His record is good but miles from what we need imo given the lack of speed in our team.

But he would work well with a Lookman, DCL or a Mirallas near him, after he has won the ball from an opponent centre back. A striker is not just for being a rapid escape route from better teams, but for scoring in average games by any means necessary - of what he does VERY well. At this stage I would take a Das Bost gladly as theres only a few days of the window left. A Giroud or Benteke would be nice, a Simani or pushing the boat out, a Djecko would be better.

If we dont manage to get anyone, at least DCL is looking better and better, the more he plays, which is great to see.

I was thinking the opposite, thought we missed a real physical presence up top to hold it up a bit better, in fairness to dcl he did put in a shift but got knocked off the ball too many times

Yes if we need the option of someone running in behind then DCL or Sandro can do that.

We don't have a target man who is a reasonably reliable goalscorer.

Such a shame that Giroud is happy getting splinters.

I guess he's happy picking up trophies year in year out for sitting on his arse for 80% of the time.

Gotta wonder if he'll looks back on his career one day and realises 'Hock damn, I actually done coulda tried to achieve something whilst playing'.
