Definitely more than a rumour (thank god)

 

Was wondering though, who could we get on such a short notice?

Costa as main ST with Drogba on bench

rumours are Boro want Bamford on loan

We would need another ST

 

Thinking Remy could be another Anelka signing and for the price it wouldn't be much of a risk

Hmm, well really this would have to be wrapped up today, otherwise it probably won;t happen as it won't give us time to get a decent replacement.

 

If he goes we won't have a single striker from last season, Etoo, Ba, Torres, Lukaku (although he was on loan anyway).

 

Maybe a little short sighted of the club to get rid of Etoo, Ba and Lukaku so soon

Maybe this is why Bamford has not gone out on loan yet? If Milan are only willing to loan Torres and not pay a good chunk of his wages then it will not save us that much money really. So in terms of the FFP we simply may not be able to afford to add Remy or Destro.

Another Anelka? Then sign him up Nico was class for us

No we have to sign a replacement if we get rid of Torres, It's nice to give youth a chance but you might regret that if Costa is injured and we only have Drogba and an inexperienced youngster with a lot of pressure on him to play as the main forward. Especially against the top sides.

 

Not just that though we don't just need another striker for the sake of it we need one to actually influence our game, Destro would be excellent to have as he gets his head down and works hard, or even Remy he adds something different because he is full of flair and pace which is something different for our forward set up.

There seems to be a fair chance he will go to Milan, according to SSN a fee has been agreed between the two clubs.
 

Just one thing concerns me though, when he goes this thread is going to be full of vitriolic 'thank f**k he's gone' kind of stuff, which is going to appear very distasteful, and very RAWK'ish IMO.
If the fella does leave i hope a little decorum is shown (although i'm not holding my breath) after all he did put in a good shift for us most of the time and came up with a couple of very important goals.

It just didn't work out for him here.

Why should this thread, thank Torres if he is conked out? What exactly is there to thank him for?

No one asked you to.

No idea why you continue to moan.
