    If we just paid 7.5mil + add ons in a reported 9mil fee for “who the feck is” Kozak, I’m going into hibernation for the rest of the season

      A Czech Republic International, lead goal scorer in the Europa League last season that included the likes of Bale, single handed took out Two German clubs due to his goals, gave Spurs a hell of a hard time, a guy despite not scoring last season in the league averages a goal every 207 minutes for Lazio in the league in his 3 seasons, a striker who is actually taller than Benteke, He even started against Italy in the Czech’s last world cup qualifier.

      He’s not some unknown player. Lol

        Okay, fair play, I never heard of him tbh. But, in any event, 9mil?!

          I’ve read 4m pounds, I can’t see it getting that high.

            If it’s 4mil, I have no issues mate and think it could be good business condiering the stats you’ve mentioned. Let’s hope so and for a couple more in tomorrow. UTV

        What’s being taller than benteke got to do with the price if fish helenius is bigger than both. At least we can have a decent basket ball team now!!

          Well considering all this hype about how physical the EPL is, he’s taller and just as big, meaning he should be able to handle himself.

            Heskey was a big bloke but was scared of his own shadow means nothing.

    Ooh ash.. FFS mate.. Give it a rest., you’ve spent an entire thread moaning like a bloody woman..

    If our defence is so shit then why have we only
    Conceded 4 goals this season compared to 12 against same teams last season!!??

    Yes we all wang new signings but to bang on about the same point over and over again gets tedious to read..!

      We could of been 3-4 goals down in the first half v arsenal and Chelsea just lucky we wernt. Also ur comparing Chelsea to last season where no one else loses 8.0 to them only us so its obvious with a defensive mourunho Chelsea it couldn’t get any where bear as bad again

        Lucky? Why does it have to be “lucky”, why can it never be that the defense is actually getting better? Simply because it ACTUALLY IS.

          Because if arsenal were at full strength and took the chances we gave them on a plate it would have been a different story. Guzan saved us umpteen times at arsenal and Chelsea. Yes we did well in those games but both times conceded a goal in first 5 mins so yet again we don’t learn from mistakes. But those results mean nothing even Cardiff kept a clean sheet v man city ffs. More than we could ever do. Lets face it the team is shit lambert is shit Lerner just wants to stay up and has no ambition to do anything else the fans are stupid for being ecstatic over bottom six mediocrity. The whole club is a joke open your eyes!!

          1. Lionheart September 2, 2013 at 12:35 am .

            What saves did Guzan make against Chelsea?

            What sort of lame statement is that about Chelsea being defensive. Rather then credit out defence.

            You got to be blind not to notice the improvement.

          2. OohAhPaulMcGrath September 2, 2013 at 11:05 am .

            Chelsea are defensive under mourunho they will win most games but won’t hammer many teams

          3. Andrew September 2, 2013 at 5:45 am .

            Arsenal had only 4 shots on target. 4… I’m sorry you claiming Guzan saved our asses against them is as per usual, completely incorrect.
            Chelsea had 3 shots on target… 3… So again, I’m sorry but you claiming Guzan saved our asses is once again, as per usual, incorrect.
            Our defense kept Chelsea to shooting completely off target and from outside the 18, none of this “oh we had Guzan save our ass, open your eyes”.
            Oh and Chelsea had 2/3’s of the possession and a total of 15 shots, but you can pretend they’re defensive all your little old heart desires.

          4. OohAhPaulMcGrath September 2, 2013 at 11:04 am .

            We still defended poorly and were lucky their strikers had an off day that’s all

            Fuck me Oohah…….you’ve now reverted to making up bollocks to ‘prove’ you’re point!

            If Arsenal were at full strength? Jenkinson for Sagna and Cazorla for Ox the only changes from the side we beat to that which beat Spurs.

            Guzan’s heroics vs the World? Two great saves against an Arsenal side that has won every other game they’ve played. Nothing vs the Chavs where Cech kept them in it at times whilst he did nothing of note v Liverpool either while Mignolet pulled off a couple of Worldys.

            Cardiff’s “clean sheet”? Which part of 3-2 don’t you understand? I know the Welsh get the unfair advantage of money from both English and Welsh FA but didn’t know they were awarded clean sheets for conceding less than 2 a game.

            It’s like trying to have a conversation at a window licking contest on here at times.

            Keep the lies coming

    Odd. I always saw Bowery as a replacement for Delfouneso and Helenius as a replacement for Bent, but who knows now? Maybe Kozak is Delfouneso’s replacement? Like most of you, I am a bit surprised. It is a strange move considering the only news we’ve had this month was concerning offloading players and searching for an AM if the price is right. I don’t know, if we sign Kozak I have a feeling we are also in the market for one or two more. I just can’t see us not signing at least one creative or defensive midfielder. Sadly I fear our transfer business will depend on Given and Ireland.

    Simply don’t rate Kozak, he is nowhere near the new Stoke signing Arnautovic who cost £2m.

    No pace, not technical, feet are clumsy and not got great movement, hence only a squad player at Lazio.

    Who is running our club? Potentially €9m for Kozak? Are they mental?

    Poor, very poor by Lambert, Faulkner and Villa!

    I think the defence is actually ok, and going to improve. Baker looks great, if a little injury prone, and even Clark looked ok before he gashed his head. Okore seems to be giving Vlaar the confidence to do what he needs to do, while looking like a fantastic signing in his own right. We’re still only a mid-table team and even defenders in top teams make mistakes (ManC conceded three against Cardiff?!). The mythical perfect defender doesn’t exist, not even in the revered ‘Sky4’ teams OOHAH talks about with such reverence. Besides, the plan has been to revamp and regenerate the team over a few seasons. It’s not an excuse to be wheeled out when we don’t get into Europe each season, it’s something we can actually see going on in front of us. I really liked the look in pre-season of Jonoi Donacien. He’s still young and needs to develop but yet again we might already have the answer within the academy. The team needs to develop slowly, get players and areas of the field developing (for example the left side of Luna, Delph and Gabby is working well, while the right of Lowton and Wiemann is missing the link in the middle – possibly Sylla?) and then buy in players in places they’re needed. Not buying a CB in January nearly did it for us but we survived and in came Okore exactly where we need him. It seems we’re not buying our way into the top four, so while we have a number of midfielders and defenders to choose from, plus new ones working their way up through the academy (and going on loan to get experience) and are rebuilding the squad slowly they may as well all be given a chance (with the prospect of what happened to Ireland and Bannan as a warning to anyone not putting in a shift). I didn’t actually think Delph would turn into what he has, and considering he’s only been fully fit for a couple of years, this season he could really turn into something special. So while it would be good to see a new AM come in, we already have quite a few options there. I still think we’re going to do surprisingly well this season.

      Agree there is no such thing as perfect defender and yes every defender makes mistakes. But they don’t do it week in week out like ours do they don’t constantly concede from set pieces in the last 10 minutes they learn from their mistakes where ours don’t they don’t lose 8 fuckin nil to Chelsea they manage to keep clean sheets from time to time and dont go nearly a fuckin year without one in the prem the proof is in the pudding the worst defensive record Wev ever had last season.

    8-0? Clark and Baker IIRC, both dropped in it, with Lichaj/Bennett on the left. Vlaar and Okore have so far dropped three goals working together in two league matches, of which one was an offside free kick, one an own goal and one a work of genius from Sturridge. Okore has already shown how good he is, Luna is looking an excellent buy and Vlaar is able to concentrate more on his game. He’s not had that golden contract extension yet, this is his season to prove what he can do or I suspect be replaced.

      Iv no problem with Okore he is a good signing IMO but vlaar still ropey IMO though I admit he has improved but was awful at arsenal and responsible for Chelsea 2nd goal and liverpools goal
