I'd like a proper right back. Koeman has been fielding Jaliens there recently and I don't like it. Swerts isn't CL material either. Otherwise, I think we're good.

Here's a helpful diagram from VI, clearly shows we need a rightback.

I don't mean to sound like a perv but there's no way out on this one:

"Can I help you with that?"

In case the purchase of Donk by Club Brugge had left you in any doubts about the sorry state of Belgian football (probably not): Westerlo are interested in buying Koenders. They can afford him too, cause we're not charging very much

"We're very happy with this signing", Marcel Brands told the press, "he's known as a great talent in Paraguay. He won't join us until January because he still has the U-20 World Cup to play and we agreed to this situation because we both felt it was more practical."
This is him:

I know, it's a turn on

This is how you run a club with Ronald Koeman in the rankings btw: don't let him take any transfer decisions. From what I hear he wasn't involved in this at all

That concludes this summer's transfer window and we've managed to keep our key stars

I'm not so enthusiastic about our buys, however. I know we could use some back-up in midfield after Demy Iscariot left, but Swedes? Our scouting history in Scandinavia isn't awesome. Only Poulsen and Steinsson were sorta alright, all the others flopped (Gudjonsson anyone?). I'm not sure what to think.

And I TOLD YOU to get an RB

Kees Luijckx's contract runs out this summer and he decided to move to NAC Breda in August. All the best to him.

Not a big loss, frankly. And I'll never have to spell his name again wee!

Do NAC actually need a technical director in Ernie Stewart?

I think they can save money there. All they do is sign our rejects on bosmans.

and yes Luxyz might as well move immediately. He's not gonna get a game anyway with Ortiz coming in too this winterbreak

I can't wait for Ortiz to get some playing time.

As for NAC... wow I'd hate to be one of their fans

AZ brengt officieel bod uit op Uruguayaan Lodeiro
Dinsdag, 12 januari 2010 om 11:37

AZ maakt werk van de komst van Nicolás Lodeiro. Een delegatie van de Alkmaarse club heeft deze week in Montevideo een onderhoud met de zaakwaarnemers van de twintigjarige aanvallende middenvelder en werkgever Nacional gehad. Volgens bestuurslid Alex Saúl is AZ tot dusver de enige club geweest die haar belangstelling ook daadwerkelijk concretiseert. "We hebben weliswaar met andere clubs contact gehad, maar van biedingen was tot dusver geen sprake."
/

"Valencia heeft zich twee ŕ drie keer laten informeren, dat valt mijns inziens niet onder serieuze belangstelling", citeert het Uruguayaanse persbureau EFE de sportbestuurder. "In Portugal en Oekraďne is er eveneens interesse. Desondanks zal het nog wel even duren voordat de overgang van de speler definitief rond is." Volgens Sául sprak het bestuur vorige week met Napoli, maar ook de Serie A-club heeft daarna niets meer van zich laten horen.

Lodeiro is een van de grootste talenten van het Zuid-Amerikaanse land. Hij maakte op achttienjarige leeftijd zijn debuut in de hoofdmacht van Nacional, en speelde sindsdien 43 wedstrijden. Daarin kwam hij negen keer tot scoren. Zijn debuut in het nationale elftal heeft de landgenoot van Luis Suárez inmiddels ook achter de rug. Lodeiro debuteerde op 14 november 2009 tegen Costa Rica in de basis en was vier dagen in de return eveneens van de partij.

Saúl ontkent dat clubs uit Engeland zich voor Lodeiro hebben gemeld. "Ik heb geen enkel contact met Engelse clubs gehad. Ook Liverpool heeft zich bijvoorbeeld nooit gemeld. Volgens mij is het meer een afleidingsmanoeuvre. We hebben geen voorkeur qua club. Diegene die het juiste bedrag betaalt, krijgt Lodeiro mee." Volgens diverse media bedraagt de transfersom ongeveer vijf miljoen euro.
That's a lot of money

AZ're apparently interested in a young Uruguayan midfielder. No idea how reliable the news is or how good he is though.
