Would you reignite a move for Kevin Gameiro?

Gameiro unwanted at PSG
I see that all of the locals this morning are saying that we’ve been offered the chance to sign the talk of last summer, Kevin Gameiro.

The PSG forward opted to sign for the Parc des Princes outfit instead of joining us last summer, which in hindsight was probably a bad move for him but a good move for us as we ended up with Papiss Cisse instead.

Apparently he has fallen out with Carlo Ancelotti after failing to nail down a regular starting spot for PSG and has been told that he can find a new club after just one season in the French capital. Mind you, his goal record still isn’t bad despite not being a regular starter and he managed to finds the net 11 times in 30 appearances last term.

I have a saying, and that saying is never go back. I would suggest it should apply to this scenario also. He’s turned us down once so for him to join us now would almost be like we would be his second choice, his last chance if you like. What sort of message does that send out to the other players in the squad? You weren’t good enough then but now I’ve failed you are?

Fortunately I think we’ve moved on and are now looking at other targets to bolster our front line. I don’t think we’ll be investing huge amounts in our front line unless we lose a player, most likely to be Demba Ba which in turn means that it’s unlikely we’ll stump up the majority of the €11m PSG will want to recoup for the former Lorient man.

Another name we’ve been linked with over the last few days is that of Coventry City’s 18-year-old highly-rated midfield enforcer Gael Bigirimana, with Sky Sports even suggesting that he’ll be signing for us over the summer.

Described as an “Essien style” players, Bigirimana has impressed at The Ricoh Arena despite the recent relegation of the Sky Blues. If signed by us he would most definitely be one for the future rather than one for the now.

So what do you make of it all? Would be willing to take Gameiro, again?

  1. Ye said all along I’d love Sessengon, he would offer something very different and it would be hilarious to have Cisse and him, imagine how that would piss off the scum.

    Can see MON letting him go though.

    I honestly think the worst of the journalists lately is Mark Douglas. He writes two page no news articles about absolutely nothing and pure speculation about what has been spoken about in social media.

    All he ever says is what is unlikely to happen and its obvious most things are unlikely to happen, therefore some see him as being the most reliable.

    He still links the same players just covers his arse every time in his wording so that basically he can never be wrong. He can also never be right.

    But Richie, I wouldn’t label all journalists under that label. Its only really the UK and States that are as unreliable.

    Having said that, I won’t be a journalist next month so **** them, they’re all ****. 😆


  2. Toonsy… still looks owa posh for riff raff like you, a Formule 1 is more your standard I reckon 😆

    JJ…Spot on about Douglas. You changing careers then?


  3. Have to Richie,

    Need to earn more to pay for the little one. So now I’m actually going to work what I qualified as. A graphic design/marketing.

    So far I’m been a game ranger, journalist, and now designer. I’m hoping I finish up as a wildlife photographer. 😆

    Richie, I stayed in three formula one hotels when I travelled around South Africa after Uni. Beat camping… Only thing that really sucked was the bog in the shower… hahaha.


  4. Rich – I stayed in a “Premeire Classe” one just outside Paris not so long back. All I can say is 😕 😕


  5. Just out of interest sake, what is the average price for a decent hotel in the UK per person per night?


  6. JJ batty does good rates on rooms as long as you dont mind shareing with about ten others and help with the cleaning 🙂
    check the net mate theres quite a few good deals as long as you stay away from london area with games comeing up it would cost you a arm and leg “if”you can get owt


  7. Any Premier Inn is usually very affordable, clean and kitted out with what you need JJ… Lenny Henry really rates them apparently. 😛


  8. Toonsy….the name of the hotel isn’t exactly on a par with the room then?

    JJ…..aye the bathrooms are like a portaloo….good luck with the new job then.
    Premier inns ya can often get for £29, but generally I’d bank on about £40-50 and upwards.
