I wonder if we already have some out of contract targets? Doesn't seem to fit the policy we have adopted for incoming players though.

 

Completely agree and as I said I hate bringing this kind of name up but desperate times might need desperate answers.

 

gutted that we couldn´t bring Olsson in but it is what it is now..

Maybe looking at this

on to adkins....

 

just as i was getting into my car, I saw him leave the stadium, I got out to have a chat and ask him what he thought of today and if he was disapointed about the final few hours.

 

His reply was " allways stuff in the pipeline, your just have to wait and see" he then done that cheeky smile and laughed and said his mind is now onto sunday.

World Cup winner ex Milan and Barcelona 35 years old Gianluca Zambrotta at SMS??.....good spot that he is a free agent and no question about his pedigree. He can show his medals to anyone in our dressing room and he knows how to defend and he knows how to attack from full back....but he is a bit old for a full back and if his legs have gone then its a no-go. If he can still run though thats another matter....

 

I'd say not only Fox and Shaw but Clyne and the rest of the team would learn from having a super experienced Italian professional defender like him in the team and especially in the back four. Would not be fazed by anything in the EPL thats for sure.

 

I vote yes please, we need a LB and we need one that knows what to do and can perform instantly.

Dont know if his legs are up to an attacking style full back but not sure we need that in our system at the moment...

there is one, zambrotta (or even ADP) could follow jaidi with the whole training with the youngsters & then off to build an overseas academy.

How?

 

Out of contract players can be signed when ever. That´s why Michael Owen is´nt in total depression yet...

 

Yes, so who drops out of the 25 man squad?

 

When I counted we had 2-3 gaps.

 

I don't think we've got 25 overage players

 

35 years old, played 11 games for Milan last season.

We don't have any spaces in the squad that can be filled (we can only name 23 due to not having 3 over-21 GKs), and we're not permitted to add any out of contract/free agents if we have available contracted players not already named in the squad. So unless we sign them before 4pm and get them into the squad before it has to be confirmed, we can't add anyone without releasing someone from their contract anyway, which they'd need to mutually agree.

or loaning them out which would seem highly possible for a few on the fringe.

Asier del Horno, former Chelsea and Bilbao and Spain defender, think he is only 31. Is a left back.

 

Agree though some of these frees would be cheap cover/competition if they are physically up to it.

 

Any from:-

 

Del Piero

zambrotta

Gordon

Boruc

Del Horno

 

Would add to the squad and provide experience in positions we need to at least january.

I definitely think Boruc is a great shout...would feel far more confident about another left back and centre back cover as well

Zambrotta, Grosso or Del Horno would be worth a year deal and even Gabbidon might be worth a punt.

Can you imagine Seabourne playing in the Prem?? crikey that would be a disaster

2 current free agents who are both CB. Both getting on a bit, but both have an abundance of experience and could surely help us out until January:

 

Per Kroldrup (33yr old former Danish international and ex-Udinese, Everton & Fiorentina)

Fernando Meira (34yr old former Portugese international and ex-Benfica, Stuttgart, Galatasaray, Zenit St Petersburg & most recently Zaragoza)
