Get rid of Waterman, Romero, Didulica, Opdam, Jaliens, Medunjanin, Koenders, Mendes, Ari and El Hamdaoui, find some decent replacements and you're all set :D

I would keep Ari.Because he could be better next season.You cant think players will do it in there 1st season.And Mendes i keep as well.Play him as a defensive midfielder and you get the best out of him.How have the players on loan been doing as well.What is the new player like as well.

I have no idea what the new dude is like, I don't follow Dordrecht at all.

From the players on loan, Luijckx and Lens have been performing really well. They're also set to come back. Luijckx's return has been verified, Lens' hasn't yet but realistically it's in the bag.

Yeah I think we should keep them but we should be on the look out for better replacements anyway. Ari and Mendes are sorta in between bench and starting line-up for me.

So according to De Telegraaf, Brands and Van Gaal are supposed to be in Argentina to check out some forward at Independiente called Germán Denis. He scored 18 goals last year and he's on six goals in ten games so far in 2008. Wikipedia says he's 26 years old and 183cm (6f) tall.

3 goals all season when he moved to Serie B. Still it looks like he's found his feet though in the Argentinian top division lately. Hope he's decent.

AZ contracteert Gill Swerts

AZ heeft zich voor vier seizoenen versterkt met Gill Swerts. De 25-jarige Belg tekent een contract tot medio 2012. Swerts komt transfervrij over van Vitesse en is in Alkmaar gehaald voor de rechtsbackpositie.

"Gill is een speler die al een tijd op onze verlanglijst stond," aldus directeur voetbalzaken Marcel Brands. "Hij was extra interessant vanwege zijn transfervrije status. Gill is een voetballer die opvalt door zijn mentaliteit en nooit aflatende strijdlust. Na het wegvallen van Grétar Steinsson als rechtsback, is hij het juiste type speler voor die positie."

Swerts speelde in het verleden voor Feyenoord, Excelsior en ADO Den Haag. De afgelopen drie seizoenen droeg hij het shirt van Vitesse.

GAH, what the hell are we doing buying Feyenoord rejects :fero: And it's not like that Van der Velden character is going to add anything. This is turning out to be an even worse transfer period than last summer. And we'll be suffering another year of Van Gaal too. It's like they're begging us to set the stadium on fire.

That Argentine striker should be good, probably Jupiler League material huh :lazy:
