The Boy from Brazil!

So for the umpteenth window we are again going all out for Leandro Damiao or so the ITKs and media are speculating. It seems that he was a teenage prospect when he was first mooted, by the time we get him, perhaps he will be a seasoned pro, or even a has-been/never-been. Some suggest that a deal has been agreed, whilst others claim it simply won't happen. I am going to play safe and sit firmly on the fence, however, if I wanted to play the percentages, I would say that we will again be frustrated with the Brazilian, and as for anyone else…

With talk that Jermain Defoe could be out for a month and Adebayor away at the African Cup of Nations, we really have problems in attack, and though Clint Dempsey is a decent short term option, he isn't a natural No9 in my opinion and is much better and more effective attacking from deeper positions, but perhaps if we are unable to source a short or long term solution, I suppose it is a straight choice between him, Jon Obika or reverting back to the summers pre season and going with Gareth Bale and if all else fails, would that be a serious consideration in preference to other compromises?

Perhaps there is a mini bargain in Sevilla striker Alvaro Negredo at somewhere between £12 and 15m, but in reality I have no idea whether he is a serious consideration or the media making up their usual guesswork.The same applies to Hamburg's young South Korean prospect Son Heung-min. His age and ability to sell shirts in Asia might well appeal to Mr Levy, however I have no idea how good he is until my son checks him out on FIFA 13, when he gets home from school. Perhaps we can buy Gary Hooper from Celtic and see the Darren Bent/Steven Pienaar/Jermaine Jenas derision factor make him an instant flop in the eyes of 50% of enlightened fans, in a how to win over fans purchase from the club.

Who, if anyone we get, might well depend on our ability to win the agent war, or pay over the odds in our potential desperation to have a striker. Surely if we lose Defoe until the end of next month, you assume the situation will force the club to find a deal from somewhere. If that is a usual last minute deadline day deal, then so be it. just as long as he is a brilliant player and one that we all approve of...
