Anelka..


yogic

Recommended Posts


Please God let it be true. He is the ONLY striker not cup tied who has proven quality, who has adjusted to the Premiership, and will not cost an arm and a leg to get in January. I think him and Drogba would be a perfect combination. People talk all about his bad attitude, but alot of time has gone by since those days. Recently he's kept his head down and done what he does best, score goals.

Top player, sh*t attitude. Better replacement for Drogs than Pizzaro and the current sprint trained Sheva.

What has he done in the last 5 years that makes you say he has a sh*t attitude?

Was playing well for Man City, all of a sudden he wanted to play in the CL and asked for a transfer. Went to Fenerbace of all places, stayed their for a couple seasons, again wanted to come back to England and wanted a move to a "big" club which didnt happen, landed in Bolton. He hasnt even been in Bolton a full season and there were interviews of him in the summer saying, he again wants a move to a CL team. He has scored goals wherever he has gone(apart from Real maybe) and I am not against signing him if Drogba is seeking a move out of the club in the summer but in saying that, he could turn out to be a dressing room cancer.

Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester, Chelsea? I can easily see this deal go through. He is in one of the worst teams of EPL right now and has experience of scoring in EPL, not that young but experience is what makes him good choice for DD's backup. The backup needs to be in good form right away.

Has a history of being selfish and if I remember correctly he was thinking of retiring few years ago. Was he going to do art or something like that? But hey he's french, stereotypically thinking he fits in the mould icon_wink.gif.

I think he is similar player to Pizarro, maybe Anelka has more speed, but otherwise. I really hope Pizza and Sheva start performing so we wouldn't need to buy Anelka or anyone else for that matter.

I would say he would be a good aquisition, when he was at Arsenal I thought he was gonna be one of the best strikers in the world.

ok he has changed Clubs a few times but he seems to have buckled down and I have not heard much about all the hangers on and advisors he used to have, was it Brothers or something?

I still harbour expectations for Sheva but could see anelka and Sheva being a fair partnership while Drogba is away.

I would probobly let Pizzaro go if it was up to me as he just hasn't shown anything in the little(admittedly) time he has been given.

I think 4-3-3 is very much the formation Grant wants us playing in the medium term. So I doubt we will see us play 2 "up top" unless we are chasing a game.

Seems to be working well I know, Still like to see how it would work maybe with Anelka--Sheva--Cole.. Anelkas still pretty quick, could work.

That for me is the trouble, Drogba is the only player we've got that's capable of playing up front on his own. What will we do when he's not available? Neither Sheva or Pizzaro are good enough, despite the fact that everyone wants them to be and Sheva used to be!!!

Anelka had all the attributes to become one of the best strikers in the world but his attitude got on the way.

I also read in the past that the real trouble was that he entrusted his brother to act as his agent and handle all his affairs with the clubs he played for, and apparently that was a very bad move on Anelka's part.

At reasonable price he'd be a good risk to take. I believe Anelka in the right situation can be a very useful player.

While Jose was slated and called boring for playing thru a target man up front, I find it ironic that Avram wants to enforce his 'entertaining style' of play on us and we're linked with the likes of Yakubu and Kenwin Jones who are direct replacements for Didier.

New way forward or copying what we've already got 317.gif
