Free agents

Post by mickeyblue » Tue Oct 16, 2018 8:29 am

A quick 5 min search brought up a couple of players that would improve us both with experience which is needed asap. Differant matter if we can afford them or they want to come but my point is there are players out there that we desperately need.
Joss labadie somebody to add some energy in midfield with experience of winning ugly
Jean-louis akpa akpro scores goals which is something we do not have in the team. A goalscorer is needed asap and most of any budget we have should be spent on imo.

Obviously lots more is there any players out there on free agents that's usually within our budget?
but we finished 9th!

7 goals in his last 70 appearances, according to Soccerbase, suggests he’s not the answer.

If Joss Labadie is the solution, I'm not sure it's worth solving the problem.
He didn't help much with our last relegation.

I think Shola Ameobi is retired and coaching at Newcastle.

LuaLua must be pushing 40 - how long since he last played a competitive game?

What is Geoff Hurst doing these days? Jimmy Greaves?

Or maybe we could let the guys that are in football and paid to find players do that...

And how was that not a valid opinion to offer in a discussion where the majority of names offered so far are either injured or retired?

Ameobi said 2 weeks ago he hadn't retired despite doing some coaching atm.

LuaLua is 37.

I was actually joking though!
