Cassano and Totti in attack next year?

We have had many discussions and so here is a poll (similar to the on I created this time last year) I will set-up allowing you to choose who you want or who you think may be the striker next year.

I have a feeling we will get Toni and he will be our regular striker.

I would love Vincenzo to stay and start, hes one of my favourite players of all time and i am still certain that he can form a formidible partnership with Totti and Cassano, his injury proneness has been a major barrier this season. I also still think DV can do a job for us but thats probably just sentiment and respect talking. Realisticly its going to be Toni, who has 21 goals in Serie B this season. Rigano from Fio would also be an interesting prospect although theres no way hes good enough to walk into our side right now.

Rigano is definitely interesting, one of them players I hadnt heard of until he entered Fio in serie C2 and since has prooven what a quality player he is, but without experience in serie A I wouldnt buy him. If Fio get to A next year, he will be a :star: IMO.

Montella really doesnt seem like he will ever regain fitness again for a long spell and its arisk to rely just on him, keeping him is possible as a 4th striker behind Totti, Cassano and one other but it is impossible to rely on him now. If we need the money I would sell him as some clubs feel he is a big player to buy and may spend money for him, especially EPL clubs.

As for Delvecchio, I am too greatful for what he has given this club down years. Now though he is not convincing and looks physically weak, I think it is definitely time to let him go.

Although if we entered next season with Totti, Cassano, Montella, Delvecchio and Corvia it isnt the worst scenario.

especially if Montella is fit and Delvecchio shows some pre-season form.

of course we're talking about a striker to partner Cassano in a tridente, Totti would be the playmaker, not a player who could replace either Cassano or Totti in a 4-4-2 if needed.

in order:
1. Cavenaghi.
2. Morientes.
3. Toni.

Delvecchio has been ruined since his winger spell under Cap and Montella has been extremely injury prone and didn't do as well in the few games he played in the second half of the season as the ones in the first half of it. both are respected and appreciated icons but just like in life, nothing lasts forever in football.

and you have to discover and gamble on prospects sometimes by the way, cause proven players mean a higher price tag and a bid competition with other clubs who'd want them.

I said it before and I say it again.

Luís Fabiano is the man, hes a scoring machine. He will be considered one of the best strikers of the world really soon, and if we cant get him now, it'll bedifficult to get him ever again.

Ofc we can, hes playing at Brasil, clubs here are always desperate for money. Kaká left for 8.5, I believe Luís Fabigol may leave for about 6
