Birk Risa I think plays in Norway for league leaders Odds BK. I have seen this team play and they have some ok footballers and a guy on left was their best player. Pretty certain it was him. If we are interested he would be reasonably cheap and worth taking a risk on. By the way Norwegian league is not great.

Yeah thats the guy hes in norways u21s hes scored 4 times for them,played in Germany for cologne 2,thats 4th tier i think,but now back in norway.

Like you say not a great standard,could be owt and nowt but this kid says weve been showing an interest.Hed be pretty cheap

Sheraldo Becker - striker from Den Haag

 

Is it a bigger gamble to go for a foreign player then say Marcus Maddison?

Perhaps, but the foreign player is free and Maddison would be a few million

Yeah, but only 216 games in a 124 years, suggests he may be injury prone

 

We have just the medical team to look after him.

First team in history to get promoted and have no money? 

Well its true they had to sell players last summer or face Administration. If you look they raised over £20 million and did not spend much. They have not been linked with spending millions instead have spent time consolidating players they already had. They have no large financial backers and money to spend will come from income they received from EFL last year and advanced season ticket sales. They apparently do not want to get into debt and face problems like Swansea where they were heavily dependent on TV money. I suspect they will be good candidates for relegation but when come back down will have Tv money to strengthen and more experienced team and good chance of being promoted straight back to top tier. If they survive first year will have TV income to strengthen. I was told this by Norwich fan and says it came about because of financial plight they found themselves in at end of last season. Lets face it you would hardly think JR is a Premier clubs choice of striker.

I am sure they can borrow against the guaranteed Premier League earnings for the coming season without any risk as long as they don't go too mad.

Yes, but never really thought he was Premier League quality. A real handful at this level, but isn’t he on about 60k a week? Also, he says he would prefer to move back to London

 

Always thought he'd be a much better player if he concentrated on playing football rather than falling down like he'd been shot every time he was challenged.

West Brom decided not to sign Dwight gale after season long loan from Newcastle, what a signing he would be guaranteed goals at this level 

Surely someone like Fulham will come in for him 

 

premier league money, London based and they love pace in their team

With Powell, or any signing like him , I really think it would mean moving Forestieri our first 

 

not just for financial reasons, I wouldn’t say there identical players but it would be hard to see them both in the same line up

We need to get lucky like Norwich did and find someone cheap who turns out to be a gem

 

Never happens to us. In fact the opposite, we find someone over priced and they turn out to be crap.

Dammit, was really hoping we'd land Powell. Disappointed.

Seem to be getting linked with players all over place now,  Morsy ? Not for me , steady player but I’d rather we had someone come in whos a bit more creative, Morsy is just a grafter , probably upgrade on Pelupessy though
