Rooney anyone?

Struggling to find a club apparently

As ridiculous as it sounds, the problem with people like him, and Hart, is not even necessarily attracting them.

It's the astronomical wages they are on, even if they were free!

That was also a bleak moment. What the hell did Heskey do in training; managers loved him... but he was demonstrably rubbish in the pitch. 

I remember this moment well

We also declined the chance to sign Radamel Falcao in favour of signing Heskey that window!

No it isnt, we were offered him for £5m. This from Jan 2008

Then this 18 months later, when we were linked again and also considered Cavani

But he's just not good enough.  He doesn't have a settled position.  He's absolutely a squad utility player.

I'm curious... what makes you think he's good enough to be first choice in a midtable Premier League team?

He could easily make RB his own and it wouldn't take much for him to develop into a quality RM. 

He's an excellent cross, has good vision, is strong, quick, versatile, passionate & spirited, can take a free kick and is solid enough defensively. They are good qualities to build on if you're an attacking defender or midfielder.  

His form at the end of 14/15 when he was hitting Benteke with crosses which lead to a number of important goals in my view was the form of a midtable Premier League player. I thought he was only getting started as well. He went backwards the following season but so did all our players. He gets a seriously raw deal from our fans imo.

...except he hasn't.

 

Yes, he got a new 5 year contract if I recall.

He would if he moved somewhere else.

His future is in midfield though imo, even though he is probably a more complete RB right now.

Tony has already said he doesnt believe in re-signing players

In this case that's a relief, but if Bruce wants him big tone surely would over rule him? I mean if we got promoted and Trekkers was available would we not be interested?

i think has yo be done by player to player basis

Any particular July?

Downing goes missing too much in time of need.

He has ability, always has had.......i have reservations about his industry and bottle.

This league requires brave committed players.

A "No" from me.
