It's clear now that Roy wants a big 'un up top

Recommended Posts

we have been linked with Crouch, Carlton Cole and apparently made a late bid to hijack the Jones deal to Stoke. It's obvious that Roy wants a big unit up top, someone who can win the ball in the air, is strong enough to hold the ball up and can offer a bit of variety in our play up top......we badly need a striker and I agree with the strategy which seems to be to sign up a target man, someone who can play on their own or who can link well with Torres ('twouldn't it be interestin' to see the kid play with a big man). Hodgson has a (managerial) history of liking a large man from Turkilymaz at Switzerland to various other headbangers in Scandinivia to Davies at Blackburn to Zamora/Elm at Fulham so my question is what formidable ball-winning headhopping sixfoot plussing behemoth do you want to lead the line for us this season and more importantly will we splash out on said gargoyle?

I would like to see Cardozo join.

 

He isn't the most ginormous of strikers (6' 4") but he can hold the ball up and he knows how to find the net.

 

He has scored goals all through his carrer including in the champions league.

 

He is a dirty big handful (remember him giving Carra a nightmare twice last season?)

 

And he knows how to score with his head unlike Crouch who for a giant is shite in the air.

If Roy wants a big unit, there's one called Kath who's very popular round Africa way, so I'm told.

 

Please, somebody with big rep give this post some love.

Connor Wickham looks a real prospect, but is currently out injured which means that he probably won't be sold this transfer window, unless we continue with our policy of signing players when they are on the treatment table.

That fella who came on for Torres in the World Cup totally changed the game in the 1 game I saw him in. I dont know whether his performance was magnified because of how shit Torres was like, but he didn't half make an impact. Big gangly fella he was.

It's a good plan, it would provide a solid hub for Gerrard, Aqua, Jovo, Patches, Cole, Maxi and Kuyt to buzz around. Not convinced by the standard we have been in for though (except Crouch who I love). I guess we're only going for HG ones as they will be a back up when Torres is fit.

 

Lukaku would be a great gamble to take as he's young enough to become HG and would not require registration in the meantime. How much would he really cost though?

That Fletcher who went to Wolves would have been ideal at a reasonable price.

 

To me, the forward needs to have the main attribute of being strong & clever to hold the ball while our ( often slow ) support reaches him. We aren't really a team that gets to the byeline much so an out and out ' on the end of crosses' forward would be wasted.

 

Carlton Cole ( if fit & priced reasonably ) would be my choice as I think he could also work well with Nando as well.

While i'm not keen on the idea it obviously worked well for Roy at Fulham so at least he's sticking with what he knows best.

 

I like Santa Cruz but his injuries are always a big qustion mark. I rate C.Cole but same applies with injuries + as he's english he'll be massively over priced. Llorente is the best shout for that kinda player.

Started a thread about him last year, massive red too.

Is right. 'dirty big handful' made me smile, thanks!
