AVFC Transfer Talk. Russian Striker Linked

AVFC Transfer Talk.  Russian Striker Linked

Just a little transfer snippet I saw on

28-year-old Pavel Pogrebnyak is apparently keen to stay in England and is now a free agent having left VfB Stuttgart.

He was on-loan at Fulham for part of last season and scored 6 goals in 12 games.

Villa and Reading are said to be vying for his signature along with Fulham.

Pogrebnyak told Sport-Express: 'After three or four months, I feel that I have found my place in England and I want to play in this league. I feel great desire and strength inside me and my age will not work against me. We couldn't agree anything with Fulham so far, but I hope everything will be alright. If I don't play for Fulham, I hope to find another team."

His strike rate for VfB Stuttgart looks a bit average? Just over 1 in 4 ... 68 games, 15 goals.

He has 8 goals in 32 games for Russia.

He knows where the net is and can strike a ball! Go to 60 seconds:

Not sure about this guy. Ok he's on a free, but I'd prefer Holt for 4m. At least he's done it through a full season.

I'd take him on a free, would be a better option than the Fonz and definitely can't be worse than Heskey.
07/06/2012 16:37:00
I've heard that the Russkie is inconsistent, a bit like John Carew if you will so no I'd pass on this one.

I'm surprised Rodallega's name hasn't been thrown round in the media, he'd be a great free buy.
07/06/2012 16:54:00
Rodallega's a free agent now isn't he? With Green on Pavel though, seemed to have a purple patch and then disappeared. Daft as it sounds, I'd rather us move for somebody like Dempsey if we are going for somebody of that more options.

Just another person for the wage bill, no. I think young talents such as Adam Hlousek or Franck Tabanou would be ideal.
Avfc94 we do

Interesting 'frees' about...It would depend very much on wages..which rules out the likes of Boswinga and Kalou I reckon..Rodallega, Pavel, Guthrie, Murphy would be worth having a look at...Need a 2nd keeper..Green, Gordon, Kusack (imagine they would all want to be number one though)..Point is there does seem to be a LOT of very useful possible acquisitions on Bosmans this Summer (Heskey? lol)
07/06/2012 18:03:00
Just read the premier league managers voted Pa***** Cisse the best value deal of the year. Credit to the scout - Id never heard of him. I would like the next Pa***** Cisse to join Villa please. I expect Lambert to arrange this. That is all. :p
07/06/2012 18:14:00
rodallega, diame, scharner, saha, nelsen, Guthrie, owen, hargreaves, murphy klasnic there just some of the bosmans available released by prem clubs and if on reasonable wages would help fill out our squad.
