The Transfer Review

In

Toni Kallio- Is a 29 year old Finnish international. He`s another 6`5 centre back who can also play left back. He is known for his forward runs and good heading, given his tall frame. However, he is also known for making occasional blunders in the national team as he has been forced to play out of his preferred position. I personally think this signing is purely to add more depth to our squad and provide back up and competition to Konch at left back and possibly Brede and Christanval (with his injury problems) in the centre.

Jari Litmanen- 36 year old Finnish legend. He`s been voted 53rd best footballer ever by the Association of Football Statisticians. Even at his ripe age still captains the Finnish national team. Litmanen has undoubted quality and skill and after obviously showing he has the fitness to compete for a place in our first team lets hope Roy`s theory of a player never loses his quality comes true in the form of Jari. He could prove to be an inspired signing!

Paul Stalteri- 30 year old Canadian international. A defender who can play either side of the field as well as in midfield. Surely just cover for Hughes at right back as Roy has now realised how Shite Chris Baird actually is!

Eddie Johnson- 23 year old American international. Dubbed the best player in America. I think this is the best signing out the lot! Pace, height, power and a deadly finish! Sounds good to me! Only 23 too!

Erik Nevland- 30 year old Norwegian Striker. Signed for Man Utd as a 19 year old and since leaving them has score a goal every other game for every club since. Well, let`s hope that record continues with us!! Was captain of FC Groningen who are the over achievers of the Dutch league this season so he must of been doing something right.

Brede Hangeland- 26 year old Norwegian international. 6`5 in height. Was very solid in the Bolton game and with Christanval next to him could prove a formidable partnership. Brede could be a contender to Johnson as the best signing.

Leon Andreasen-24 year old Danish international. At 6`2 is exactly what we need in our midfield. Defensive minded who still moves up the pitch and proved against Bolton he has a bit of a shot on him. Again could prove invaluable in our fight.

Out

Steven Davis- Gone to Rangers on loan for the rest of the season with a view of a permanent (apparently). I hope this isn`t true because he has such potential and under Roy could flourish!

Lee Cook- I have continued to sing his praises since we signed him and just as he was getting back to fitness and playing very well in the reserves he`s been sent out to Charlton till the end of the season. Not seen anything about a permanent at the end of it and I bloody well hope not!

Tony Warner- Don`t really care about this one. Out on loan for a month! Need someone to cover his absence as Keller is still injured!! Maybe Batista can get his chance?

Collins John- The biggest mistake of our club since taking on Sanchez!! He has undoubted quality! Proven goal scorer when given a chance (even though he still didn`t start that many in that season). Scored some fantastic goals, and as I`ve always said you need a Dutchman in you squad to have a good team.

merlin
must admit I'm looking forward to seeing if Johnson can make an impact!
Putney
Argh! Didn't Roy see the mistakes that Lawrie made Buying loads of cheap players insted of splashing out on some class
Backslash2010
but in your situation would you be able to attract class?
merlin
thank you for your kind words Merlin! I think Roy has done very well!

One player doesn't make a team! We needed more depth and quality in several positions and that is what Roy has done!!
