Sky sports saying we have made a bid for pelle

1.) 02 Jul 2014
£6 Million. Sure we could get better strikers for that, or at least put it towards getting someone like Hernandez.

TD why do you think hernadez is better than pelle. Doesn't start for Mexico, long-standing goal drought before world cup. Done nothing for Man Utd.

Pelle has got a good scoring record for feynord 55 in 66 games

if you look at last seasons stats at the top 10 leagues last season . pelle is 3rd behind ronaldo and messi for goals scored

5.) 02 Jul 2014
We'd just be a stepping stone for a player like Hernandez

^ probably more like 4th behind messi,
Ron & suarez

He was not the thrid highest scorer in europe behind messi and ronaldo. he wasnt even the highest scorer in the dutch league. finnboggason was.

Do people with more football knowledge than me believe he is transferable to EPL. Heard that Dutch players are often over rated before they get here.

I think the focus on Eredivisie players for goal scoring seems a bit hit or miss. Sure Pelle has a good record in the last 2 years but prior to that in Serie A and even a previous Eredivisie stint he seemed ineffective and he's only been in double figures for goals once in 10 previous seasons, in Serie B (10).
Jozy Altidore scored 20+ goals in the Eredivisie at AZ and he got 1 last year at Sunderland. Brian Ruiz, similar at Twente and then about 5 in 3 years at Fulham. let's hope we get a better return.

10.) 02 Jul 2014
I think the main thing to consider is pelle will fit right into koemans plans. Koeman knows him inside out and He will probably build a team around him. J rod on his return, along with young Gallagher would offer a good strike force.

11.) 02 Jul 2014
If SFC think pelle, gallagher, mayuka and j rod is a strong enough strike force I am seriously worried. osvaldo may prove to be a saviour if he stays but I expect him to be sold and 1 more striker to be signed.

12.) 02 Jul 2014
I think the best person to decide who's right for us is Koeman. Could be the best thing that happened to us MoPo going. Do you think we would have got Ronald Koeman 18 months ago?? Don't think so. Think positive yeah?

13.) 02 Jul 2014
Just a quickie. Dutch players no good? Have you been watching the world cup. They could win it you know. Point taken?

Not remotely saying or suggesting they aren't good. However we all know the EPL is a different style of play compared to Europe.
I had read a football pundit saying that buying dutch often meant players who were overrated compared to others

{Ed007's Note - I bet it was an English pundit, English players are never overrated.}

Oooh so cynical ;-)

But yes. Yes it was

16.) 03 Jul 2014
Chrisdownj No one we mentioned is actually Dutch. I think the point is the Dutch league is not as strong and goals there are easier to come by than say Epl, serie a etc

17.) 03 Jul 2014
The point I'm making (and I take yours) is that we are always saying other countries players won't make it in the Premier League etc. Do you think it could be that they have to play along side all our over rated Brit players? By the way how did our 4 nations get on in the world cup. Sorry but it annoys me that we think we can criticise.

18.) 03 Jul 2014
Honestly, a scoring record of 50 in 66 is great in any league, that's better than Suarez and Bony had in that league and it's better than Lambert ever had in L1 iIrc. The Dutch league is no worse than the Championship really and if a Championship player had that record we'd be raving about them

19.) 03 Jul 2014
Yes Pelle sounds great. A great scoring record of any class but I have to agree with some of the above comments that we will need a proven striker from the prem to lead the front line. There are enough strikers out there ie IMO would like to see someone like Lukaku up leading the front.

Luis Suarez, Dirk Kuyt, Robin Van Persie, Arjen Robben, Ruud Van Nistelrooy!

Eredivisie gave us these plus many more.

That alone gives me hope Jude.
Having watched videos on him, he does remind me of SRL. As long as we have the crossers
