Fingers Crossed. Because How Would We Find Another Viduka?


We'll need a pretty big net if we have to find a new Mark Viduka.

Like everybody else, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the big man decides to stay with the Boro.

But you know that clubs must be queuing up to express their interest.

After all, you don't score 19 goals, become a free agent, and then find that nobody wants to talk to you.

Viduka will be a helluva loss if he goes, but we can't do anything else but keep our fingers crossed.

We certainly can't replace him from within, and I don't envy Gareth Southgate if he has to start looking for a striker who he can guarantee will score 19 goals next season.

To make matters worse, we are now reading reports that Yakubu is unsettled.

But he's a different case from Viduka because, while Viduka can walk out the door, Yak is under contract.

I know people say that you shouldn't hold on to unhappy players but we need Yakubu next season, especially if Viduka goes.

I would imagine Southgate wouldn't know where to turn if both strikers left the club.

From what we have seen of Dong-Gook so far he doesn't look ready to go straight into the side at the start of next season.

I thought his movement was good against Fulham and so was his first touch, but he still looked a bit lightweight.

He also missed too many chances. He could have had a hat-trick.

It's obvious that Dong-Gook needs a goal. But he wellied a couple of very good chances wide of the target when he should have been trying to place them.

But then he's desperate for a goal and that affects your composure.

If Dong-Gook had scored he would have been dreaming about it all summer and champing at the bit to get going again for next season.

But when you are on his sort of a run you keep wondering if a goal is going to come and it hits your confidence.

In the end we had to rely on Viduka again against Fulham. He took both of his goals brilliantly and could have had four or five. …
