Anyone else been impressed by this 21-yr old winger? Seeing him linked to us earlier in spring I've paid some attention to the guy and he looks damn impressive. Great skill, a knack for scoring and a big presence in the Turkey team. Sadly his value won't have gone down during this tournament, but he'd be a bargain at £15mill if you ask me.
He can cut inside, go wide, dribble and put in decent crosses. And most importantly, he can score. Didn't see him lose the ball once against the Czechs. If there's just a small chance of accquiring this guy, buy!

I’m looking forward to Russia vs. Sweden to see Arshavin come up against Kallstrom. In my mind Andrei is a league above Kim but we’ll see.

It´s a pity Källström is benched in favour of Anders Svensson the former Southampton reject.
The fact is that Bainsy will never play unless we buy some height in midfield. So stop moaning about Arshavin and Manny, buy Koller cause I want Bainsy!

I’m still hoping we get Arshavin. He’d be a good option cutting in from the left hand side, he has pace and can nick a goal. If not him then someone like Giles Barnes.

I’m afraid you’re not watching enough French football.
I really don’t see why Lasse prefers Svensson to Kim. That man cannot play, and can’t even deliver a freekick. Though I have the utmost respect for Elmander, I hate to see him play in midfield when Kim is more qualified for the job.

I was under the impression Källström has been injured which is why KK hasn?t been playing instead of Anders Svensson. For me Källström is exactly the player we need - box-to-box, 6ft midfielder (short-arse by Swedish standards) and can dictate the play as well as break it up. Moyes should be burning the air between here and Lyon asking about his price.

I?m not saying Barnes would come here and demand a place in the team because he wouldn?t but as someone who can come in, be a squad player, learn off the likes of Arteta and Pienaar and make an impact from the bench he'd be very useful. He has the right attributes. Pace, strength, skill and a good footballing brain. He's also versatile and can play right, left, centre and behind the strikers. He's also 6ft tall and not lightweight like our other wide men.
If the price is right I'd have a look at him. Good young player and British as well.

In the right team with a good manager who ensures he does the right things on and off the field he will be the next young england player to be head hunted a la David Bentley.

They’d do a job in the centre of the park....

I´m afraid not. Källström is fit and fine but LL(swedish coach) prefer his favourit players. Thats why Alexandersson still plays, but in Sweden you can´t argue with a guy whos taken Sweden to 6 straight playoffs. So KK wont play until Anders Svensson retire or we fail to qualify.
I would take KK to Everton but i would´nt love to have him here. To slow in my opinion and for 8mill you can get better players..
Arda Turan, just a better version of Pienaar and Osman. Carry on with the "English types" it seems to work and we can´t compete with the likes of Tott, Psmth, City or Villa until we get other owners. Buy Michael Johnson as DM
