    [Update 253] The Journalist


    A new ITK popped up at SC (I'll let @spursman18 do the update), and it was mentioned that we are in for the Schalke striker who must not be named. :y10:

    And we're supposedly interested in Jefferson Farfan as well.

    The only person i imagine it would be is huntelaar but although that ITK sounded genuine we're linked witth him every transfer window.

    Farfan would be the peruvian yes, good player.

    No comment on C*ntelaar.
    As for Farfan, big fan of him. Very versatile- can play winger or second striker and has some great pace on him.

    Farfan is definitely interesting. Since we missed out on Gervinho, he is a nice alternative as the right wing/striker, and can also play as SS. So goals from the side? lol

    I know its only rumours but IF we signed farfan he would either be sub or start ahead of lennon?

    Because van der vaart fills the second striker option.

    I reckon he would replace Lennon, especially if we go 4-3-3.

    Why don't we play 4-3-3? I don't get it! We have the perfect squad for a 4-3-3 formation.

    Huntelaar.. meh, he's played with Vaart before though plus Dutch players are usually good in the Prem.
    I would love Farfan i rate him highly, and Jurado it could be? I saw him score a few belters in the Bundesliga last season.

    I don't think Lennon is suited to be the right wing of a 4-3-3. He's more of a traditional winger and his goal scoring ability is lacking. VDV on the other hand lacks the pace. In a 4-3-3, I would use VDV as one of the CM but we'll need a better right forward.

    I'd play bale as RW, Defoe as LW and a top striker!

    Bale is wasted at RW IMO. And lol @ Defoe. He is only a goal poacher and nothing else.

    We don't have the players to play 4-3-3! If we buy someone like Farfan i would try it though with Bale as LW, Farfan as RW and a great striker. 4-3-3 is definately the most modern formation(Barcelona) with 2 wingers tracking back a lot and creating space for the midfielders.

    I'm surprised no one has commented on some of his other ITK in that big post - namely the bit about affelay!

    He said the fee was 25 million euro though that seems a bit steep for huntelaar I thought shalke got him cheap enough and he hasn't exactly been on fire to drive up the price

    Huntelaar is fair enough especially if you play attacking football. He's not been on fire for Schalke last year but he did a great job for The Netherlands. He just needs a good team and opportunities and he bangs them in. Afellay would be perfect but he'll surely go for his chance at Barca, can't blame him for that.

    Huntelaar, in my opinion, would not be too bad of a signing for us. He would suit what we are trying to do, and could link up very well with VDV. He has done much better in the national team than at Schalke, which leads me to believe he would be better suited to a different style of play. Plus if we can get Farfan too, that would be amazing. Even if he doesn't start, he'd be the definition of an impact sub.

    So a team that makes the champions league semi final is not a "good team"?

    i think alot of us would prefer Farfan but it's most likely Huntelaar, i reckon Rafa is trying to persuade him to come to WHL...

    I would not pay much attention to this news........brand new ITK so I'll wait to see if a more reliable one backs it up, which I doubt will happen.

    Can't believe some of you want Farfan, he's so one dimensional, over rated and shit.
