    Wouldn't believe half of wot u read about this transfer tbh , a think his agent is doing his job by putting it out there that he's still available and drawing out any interested teams that are desperate for a Striker to step up .

    That we’re chasing him makes me think Edouard will be leaving.

    I think he would already be gone if there was some interest. I'm sure the club and his agent will be actively trying to punt him.

    I think your spot on here, I think the board will be very actively trying to move Edouard on as they won’t want to lose him for nothing.

    It’s less than ideal but if that money is used to fund a few more deals it’s tempting looking at how threadbare our squad was last night.

    I agree with how bare the squad looked but we also witnessed last night that Edouard is on another level and brings so much to us, particularly in the tougher games. It’s very early days but I’m sure Ange could get him and Kyogo paying in the same team and we also have to remember Kyogo has already played half a season in Japan.

    I can’t see eddy going now. Totally agree if he was going he’d be gone by now. There has been loads of speculation but no official bids yet. I think we are more likely to push griff out the door.

    It might be on whether Ajeti can be moved on?

    I agree Edouard brought someone who could hold the ball under pressure but he isn’t the only striker who can do that, also baring the chance he set up for Montgomery and giving him the benefit of the doubt when he nearly picked out Kyogo, he was very slack in his passing and lay offs which nearly landed us in it.

    Will we get a better all round player than Edouard with the money? No definitely not but could 3 good players that better fit Ange’s system make an overall more positive impact on the team beyond what Edouard can? I think we can.

    I am worried about the lack of squad depth, we badly need reinforcements if we are to win the league as this team playing 3 games a week we will burn out.

    Apart from Julien, McCarthy, Johnston, Dembele and Forrest that’s all we have. Those five players would add significantly to the team but they have all been pretty injury prone in the past, and Dembele is unproven.

    I don’t mind a couple of loans but to me they just kick the can down the road and that’s a big part of why we are where we are.

    If Griffiths and Ajeti go, I'd be happy enough with this..

    Definitely shouldn't be the Edouard replacement. I'd like a loan to buy as it's late on and gives us time, has to be quality though..

    This one strikes me as a Griffiths replacement.

    Edouard I honestly think we will have another option. Surely.

    We won't replace Edouard this window if he goes imo. Kyogo and Giakoumakis would be our strikers until January at the very least.

    Could maybe see us go spend big on a LW if Edouard goes as we won't be using Kyogo there. Need a LW even if Edouard stays but him leaving could accelerate business there.

    Has to be..

    Ajeti out would be another bonus and then as I said, I'd honestly take a quality type loan to buy striker..

    The General concensus in the Netherlands is, that he is a one year wonder + VVV started at an asking price of 10 million Euro's (about 8 million pound i guess). AZ bought the other Greek forward Pavlidis, and everyone of the AZ fans (on the AZ forums) were happy because he is much younger. Except me. I rather signed Giakoumakis because the way he scored the goals showed some real class. + VVV was a really weak team. To score that many goals in a real weak team is really special. I think if he played for AZ he could have scored around 40 goals. With Pavlidis im happy if he even scores 15 goals. So for about 2 million pounds I think he is a steal. Well I sure hope he does well, he seems like a nice guy. Good luck.
