Ruud boys?

Transfer targets mentioned in the press include Luke Young, whom is a proven right-back, very solid at Charlton and Boro, and would be good if we could get him. Presumably he'd cost £6 million or so though. Benni McCarthy is 32 but does score goals on a regular basis (think he hit 13 for Blackburn last season) and would have the World Cup in South Africa to motivate him.

As for today's story about 33-year-old Ruud Van Nistelrooy (better than Salford Van Hire) coming, it seems a little bizarre to be offering him 100k a week having slagged of Ljungberg's 80k a week deal from the Eggman so strongly.

But it might work if we could get him on a short-term deal and he saves us from losing £40 million through relegation. Can't see him swapping Real Madrid for dinner at Theydon Bois though…

I can see us wasting yet more time on players that are NEVER going to come to us and in the last day or so panicking and getting in crap loans/bosmans.

Have we learnt anything?

Agree the Van Nistelrooy pursuit was probably to make us look ambitious more than anything else.
I was having bad dreams about Davor Suker too, although hopefully Ruud would have offered much more than Davor, who only ran for us when collecting his pay cheque.
