Soldado, Osvaldo, Yilmaz, Lopez, Doumbia, Morata, Muriel, Chicharito, Fred, Ben Yedder, Cardozo, Rodrigo, Martinez, Kiessling...

Or maybe you're right, and the fact that we have taken more than 48 hours to sign a player that a week ago most of us didn't even realize we had a chance at signing, means we definitely won't sign anyone.

That's true, I just recently thought about the fact our expectations fluctuate greatly depending on the circumstances. Just a few weeks ago, I was completely cynical in regards to the D. Villa situation, and then gradually came to expect that we were going to sign him after all. Then the letdown, the depression, followed by desperation, and finally I'd settle for just about anyone who's fairly functional as a striker.
Then the whole cycle started from scratch w/ Benteke, and it''s like a vicious circle. Now I'm back to the point where I'm actually beginning to expect that we sign Bobby Soldier, but I'm trying to be cautiously optimistic and I'm really really hoping the deal goes through for us (instead of emulating the previous two attempts to sign a striker).

COYS!

PS. btw, I'm surprised you know about Ben Yedder, brother. I find most people aren't familiar w/ him. He is a very good striker. One of the most underrated footballers in Europe, imho. And he's also much more affordable than 90% of the guys you listed, afaik. (y)

Yeah he really impressed me this past season, would be a good young addition even if we do get someone like Soldado. With two years left on his contract I could see us making a move this year or next. France has some really strong youth players coming through.

Definitely bro, it would be nice if our scouts looked into him.
