#18 - Rogelio Funes Mori

We have loaned Argentinian forward Funes for 1 year with an optional buyout of 3.5 million (will never happen) from Benfica. He mainly played on their reserve team but he did score agood bunch of goals. Don't know much about him but maybe our Portuguese friends who happen to ever see this post can give their opinions? Zizou had good things to say about him which makes me a little more optimistic but we shall see how he fits in.

were all these transfers done in one day?


Lex Immers - Pace & power. Holland's #1 box to box player

Feyenoord forum - the place to talk about this phenomenon

Ronald Koeman "Oranje kan Immers goed gebruiken"

Fred Rutten "Feyenoord heeft Immers nodig"

Van Marwijk over Lex Immers: 'Stille kracht van Feyenoord'

John de Wolf “Dat is nou precies de aanjager, het ’etterbakkie’ in het veld dat Feyenoord in dit soort wedstrijden nodig heeft"

You will not exercise the buy option because he sucks, not because you're skint.

Horrendous player, I think he featured twice all season for Benfica as a sub in Cup games. Can't score, can't create, just useless.

Hey he will fit right in with the forwards we've had the past 4 years! thanks for the heads up. We don't have 3.5 million to pay for transfer fee that's why I said we can't

Long season awaits us.

Josue, he is crap for Benfica but in a league like Turkey, incredibly average playes like Mori can become beasts. Ask Makakula

I'm going on what I saw of him at River plate. He looked like a decent-ish player back then, plus he cant be any worse than eskisehirs current strikers.

Plus it's Joshua who's been wrong on many many occasions when it comes to players especially ones that play for his rival team. Hope he's wrong here too.

Then again, Joshua's description of Funes sounds exactly like the qualities Ertugrul Saglam looks for in a player.

Funes, just another Nunez

Many many occasions? I think you need to get your facts straight.

I've posted in this forum a few times before and that was to tell you about Pele. You refused to believe me and said I was wrong, how he was turning into a star... then like two weeks later he is in trouble and kicked out of the squad. Who was right? Oh and Pele was a Porto player, not from a rival team.

Learn to bite your tongue, boy.

You mad my son? Pele actually turned out to be a very decent player and continued playing after that one incident he had apologized for, then I think he went to Greece and now plays for Olympiakos? anyways he had the most consistent time of his career right here at Eskisehirspor playing over 40 games don't think he's played with any one team that much...yet.
