Following on from my previous blog, I heard the good news that Dagno and Chris are confirmed back and in training. However, Belgian clubs are still sniffing around both players and we all know that money talks.
So once again, let's be pessimistic and assume both players leave before February. We still have the lethal-looking combination of Teerasil and Sagnosoi, but we now look short on cover and that blistering pace we packed last season.
Where do we find that cover? Of course we do know of a young player with pace and great finishing. His name is Ibrahim Kanoute and for reasons still unknown we sold him to PTT. With Kallio and Rehman arriving and one more foreigner expected in soon, our farang quota is almost full. So we seek out the best Thai players, right? Hmmm...didn't we just sell national team players Leesaw and Rungsiyo to BEC Tero because they didn't quite cut it at MTU?
This seems to leave us in transfer checkmate. I can only see one partial solution - Chainarong Tatong at Chula United. This player took Division 1 by storm last season and slammed home goals for fun in a side that finished mid-table. Surely, he would jump at the chance to play for the champions, would not cost too much and must be worth a punt for the new coach?
Still unless he's also pacey then we still need to find a speed demon somewhere in Thailand.....can anyone help? Come on all you fans of other teams, let us know about your best forwards!
