    indeed. Even better if he can come anywhere close to last season's production.

    His or ours. Ours should be a snap.

    I have seen this guy play in quite a few games (lots of ipswich games available for download).

    Do you guys think he is premiership quality.

    He comes across as a guy who could get caught out by the speed of the premiership.

    He was dynamite in the Championship though and I would love to see guys like him and Julio Arca get picked up by MLS.

    Hopefully he can get it done in the EPL.

    he was hopeless in the match three weeks ago versus the Dutch. but the Finnish NT isn't Rovers, is it?

    if I'm not mistaken, he was playing as a lone forward in that match, so that probably didn't help his cause all too much. From the very little bit I've seen of him, I think he would work well with a dynamo like Dickov, or maybe even McCarthy if we can pull that deal with Porto off. I'd have to think that we'll be back to 4-4-2 this season, since the 4-5-1 we used last season was as much a result of no other forward outside of Dickov really stepping up.

    mostly correct. Finland looked the better side in the first half. Kuqi seemed to have suffered a muscle pull -- limping a bit -- and then Holland started racking up goals. Finland's midfield looked quite solid, with Riihilahti being the bulwark. Kuqi needs support. He and Paulie might just make a good tandem.
