Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Vaughan seems to have the strangest injury list , but his knee seems to be a recurring problem. Glad he has some of dat pace , cause thats what we are sorely lacking at the moment. Also read he had a good preseason which boads well.

Quote:
•September 2005: Operation to fix knee ligament injury while at Everton
•April 2007: Suffers severed artery in leg
•August 2007: Dislocates shoulder
•March 2008: Undergoes knee surgery
•November 2008: Has more work done on troublesome knee
•October 2009: Loan spell at Derby cut short by injury
•May 2011: Ruled out of the start of Norwich's season with knee injury
•September 2011: Receives plastic surgery on cut lip
•September 2011: Has another knee injury after hobbling out of win over Sunderland
Di Matteo must really fucking love Mikel, hoping Moses doesn't pull a Shaun Wright Phillips.

Also, never go by youth level records. Youth football (usually) means nothing in the grand scheme of things. That's not to say that it's a useless exercise and the stars of tommorow can't be spotted at that level, but it's not a consistent guarantee of success down the line.

As for breaking out as a young star, do you not remember Franny Jeffers? Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice...

In other Norwich news, we've just signed Alexander Tettey from Rennes on a two year deal. He's a Norwegian midfielder, other than that I know the best part of fuck all about him. Hopefully a chant will be worked around a tea based advert for him.
Francis Jeffers, Danny Cadamateri and many more, I've seen many come through who are 'the next Wayne Rooney', just like Jose Baxter. Vaughan was the only one who truly excited me. To be fair, his England unders record was before he become cursed, if he could have carried on he would have went on to replicate that form for the full squad, in my opinion of course.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Well at least Moses was under half the SWP transfer fee. Decent signing, still very young and can cut it at the top flight. Feel that he will do more for the team than Kalou did overall as well. Although Kalou had the advantage of getting late goals relatively often if I recall.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

I remember when Chris Brown was Norwich's top goal scorer in the 07-08 pre season. He then went on to score 1 goal in something like 15 games, before soon being shipped off to Preston where his career has reached soaring heights. Make of that what you will.

I reckon if Vaughan can stay fit he will score ten or so goals and maybe create a few for Jordan Rhodes (if you keep him) with his pace. Should be competent at that level without really making any heads turn. Alright signing that's good enough for a team trying to stay up in the championship, unfortunately (for both of us) he's not much more than that.

Cue James Vaughan finishing the championship season as top scorer with 20+ goals.

Or a fractured erection and a broken back the night before the first game of the season.

Expect either one Lil'Jimmy.

Every Chelsea manager bar AVB has loved Mikel. And strangely, which manager was the one out the fastest?

They are some similarities between SWP and Moses. Moses really needs to work on his final ball. It was shocking last weekend. But he had the highest successful dribbles in the league last season. He gives us some more pace and also is a strong young man.

Him and Marin give us directness from each flank.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

SWP on his best day couldn't produce the type of ball control that Moses displays on a regular basis, at least the raw talent is there and he's not just another fast but shit type of player.

I think that people will realise that Moses is a hell of a lot better than they are currently giving him credit for. He's not perfect by any means, but a lot of the problems have been down to the players that surround him, up until now. Wigan should have easily beat us by several goals on the two occasions that we played them last season, we couldn't get close to Moses. Unfortunately for Wigan, Connor Sammon and Franco Di Santo were their two main strikers.

Before anybody says anything I'm not comparing the two players, but does anybody remember what Ronaldo was like before 2006? All step overs and no brains. The potential is certainly there with young Victor.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

It's a bit of a shame. At his age he needs to be playing regular football if he's going to reach his potential which obviously he won't do. How many attacking players can one squad have. Bordering on the ridiculous.

I'm not entirely disheartened though, he usually gave our defence a torrid time. Wigan are bound to be staring into the abyss now. (inb4 they do the Houdini act again.)

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

Players for the 3 spots beihnd the striker:

Hazard/Mata/Oscar/Ramires/Marin/Moses

Oscar and Ramires can also play in the 2 spots behind the 3.

I think it's closer to healthy competition, rather than overkill. Got to remember we have a long season on our hands. Mata is due a rest soon says RDM. Marin is injured a lot. Moses will play.

Re: 2012-13 Football Transfer Discussion Thread

In terms of Moses not playing he'll probably play alot more than people imagine. he is our only Right Winger in the whole squad. Ramires is a midfielder and even with his great displays this is often exposed.
