Baros 'mulling things over'

Baros 'mulling things over'

It appears that our approach has been made for Milan Baros, with a 6 month loan deal 'said' to be in the offing, now he is just 'deciding' if he wants to come here or not.

His agent Pavel Paska - who has had plenty to say for himself recently - says that things are 'complicated' but has told the media that he 'will decide by the weekend', early next week at the latest: 'It is complicated and Milan is still hesitating.

'He will make his decision within this week or, at the very latest, at the beginning of next week.

If the fella wants football to boost his chances of going to Euro 2008, unless he has 'someone else' in mind, or unless Fred leaves afterall with the players that Lyon already have and have even added to their squad recently he probably will not get much of a look in.

I am pretty keen on him coming here, but only want him here if he wants to be here.

We only have a little over a week left in the transfer window, so he had better decide sooner rather than later as we will not hang around waiting for him - we have other targets in mind, and I do think that if the right person comes along the funds will be made available.

Yep we are not a bottomless pit, but we want the best, so if they will come here - which is the problem convincing them sometimes - we will get the best...

It's a pretty big decision to make for him they're still in the Champions League and on top of the French league. But like you said he wants to get in the Czech squad for Euro 2008 which I think he will, regardless of which club he ends up at the end of January.

firstly, i would rather have fred ;-) and secondly, whilst his record has been good, im not convinced he would set the world/premiership on fire. would he be an improvement on what we have already got? would he get in ahead of kanu? do we want him in ahead of nugent? im not convinced he is good enough for us to make the step up - sure he is a good player, but nothing new.

Yes and yes carpet. Baros just needs his ego massaged and we have the fans and manager to do that.

Just goes to show how far we have come in the past couple of years when you can ask if Baros is good enough for us!!!

kanu, nugent and baros are all different players - as much as i like nugent and hope he will be a success here personally i think that baros is an improvment on him... that isnt to say i dont think there i room here for both... kanu, well i like the fella he has been a great footballer, but i think the key work is 'has been' i think he is a spent force. he could offer something if used in the right way but tbh i have said it all season i think he would be better used from the bench... when you look at it that way stillthewhizz its big decision for him to make isnt it in all fairness.

very true steaming, my own thinking is that he is and i would not question his signing - without doubt on a 6 month loan, if he isnt then we have a get out cluase dont we... even if he signed outright now i think it would be a fantastic signing.

Sounds a bit "try before you buy" to me, ideal in the circumstances really

i would prefer Fred, i have not checked stats yet but i don't recall Baros being a prolific scorer and thats why the both hub cap gangsters and the "we are a massive club villains" let him go. I liked and thought Berger did a good job for us but i think he went at the right time....sicknote II we don't need

without doubt i would prefer fred but he didnt prefer us did he... i could see baros being an 'inspired' signing if he come - maybe that is a bit too much?

i would say "inspired" is going too far - based on my limited knoledge - but i would never refuse a loan deal for him...
