If Besiktas are crazy enough to take on his wages let him go. We could probably pay Benteke and another young striker for the same wages.

Benteke is going to want very good wages. I have no idea what he might be on at Villa, don't think it'd be anywhere near our top earners, but if he's being touted around £25mil he'll want wages to match that kind of valuation.

He's on £20k p/w at Villa.

Not sure this is the right thread for this but in the likely event that we don't sign a striker then we have a whole bunch we need to use more effectively:

Coulibaly
Coulthirst
Obika
Dawkins
Kane
Lancaster

I don't know which are on loan or not but 1 of them maybe the answer but until we try them we will not know.
I actually think Ade might have a decent season but we need back up not just JD!!

I think Coulibaly and Coulthirst were getting rave reviews last season!

How many of them have had a good loan out in the Championship?
Lancaster was injured for most of last season and is one that i am interested to see how he does

But at the moment im not convinced any of them are ready yet to get game time for us.

If we let Ade go we better have a fantastic back up plan as Defoe suits a 4-3-3 as much as Welshie suit fishnets and a miniskirt.
Didn't mean the spam-rating mate. Slip of the finger. Will change it when I get to my laptop.

Probably my first post tbh. Really wouldn't mind if we sell Ade. He can be unplayable on his day but there are too long time between these days. He drops too deep constantly and we clearly missed him in the box on several occasions. Benteke would be an upgrade on him and our entire strikerforce IMO.

I guess I'll post more from now on guys! COYS!

No worries mate. Remove it if you remember, leave it if you don't. It is only a rating.

If nothing else I hope this gets you posting more, its always nice to get lurkers joining in on the madness.

Interview with Bilic for "Sportske Novosti":

http://sportske.jutarnji.hr/slaven-bilic---osjecam-se-kao-trener-hajduka--problemi-svuda--a-navijaci-zele-naslov-/1114366/

You can google translate it, good luck ;)

Bilic refused to name anyone, but Turkish media mentioned goalkeeper Tolga, midfielder Plasil, winger Varela, and striker Adebayor.

"It's possible that he will come, but not necessarily" (Adebayor).

Later they mention that Besiktas is not swiming in money but they will build new stadium soon, new president got rid of old debts and they have a new sports director.
So if they want Ade and we are willing to sell and Ade wants to go, it's possible. Even with his wages.

Will be interesting to see if he is in the squad for Friday night. He is in the prelim squad for Asia Trophy.

With a full pre season behind him he could prove to be a big player for us next season but we still need to go all out and sign Benteke.

Mite just be enough to tempt him! He has had this offer for the last 2 weeks to look over. I was talking to another member via pm if u wana check.
He is holding out for around 75k a week thou which would put him on more than he is with us
