-Sengkang Punggol FC Fans' Perspective-

Transfer News #4 (Season 2010)

Two more confirmed signings, and most likely the last two significant ones for the new season.

MOUSSA KEITA joins the team as the second new import (the other being Canadian Jordan Webb), hopefully to add much needed punch in the attacking third.

FADHIL SALIM makes the move from Gombak United to guard our sticks. With 58 goals conceded in the season just past, he’s gotta be the most important recruit in the team.

  1. good job in signing these two players! btw, i read on the sleague site that farhan farook and ashrin shariff have left geylang. is there any possibility for the dolphins to sign them? these are two pretty decent local players who have had experience playing with the dolphins(if i rmb correctly). ashrin was once a young talent while farhan had a terrific season with the dolphins too. i hope we can grab these two(:

    • Both definitely sound like useful signings. However with the offensive area in the team all but confirmed, it’d be hard to imagine a return to Hougang for the duo.

      Think the wiser move would be to work on the defensive part.

      • the striking department is all settled? who are they? moussa keita, diallo and murphy? i reckon we’ll need one more striker. ashrin has pace and high work rate to offer while farhan has the dribbling skills to take on defenders. however, this responsibility can be on diallo. so if we can have just one more, take ashrin! he’s local!

        moving on the defensive area…this is quite tough. there arent many talent out there. but i hope aide can use his connections well?

        • Just read from S, Ashrin Shariff is in the books of Home United, pending due to his fitness issue.

          So there goes the homecoming of the young protege.

          I also agreed that a lot have to be done to bolster things at the back.
          Currently the senior defenders we can count on in the books are fullbacks Nur Azli and Lau Meng Meng.
          Who else will actually step up to the task?

  2. Somehow i have questions for aide signing this season.First it is good to keep murphy around but i wonder why the 2 diallo boys…they are good but somehow i felt not quality enough. Mamadou have great skills but cannot score while diallo performance have been somewhere above average only (to me).Since we have moussa we should release mamadou while in the midfield and defence i felt we need someone who is someone like the then zdravko simic to lead the team as well as a good foreign defender since we are going for youth this season.What can we do if we have so many strikers upfront but lack quality defender.
    I am also shocked by aide decison to release jerry and azhar baskin they are both great senior players right,ashrin should also be signed too for backup strikers so we don’t need to sign more foreign striker.

  3. now i’m really worrying about the defence =X we defeinitely need some experience at the back. and someone with the height to cope with towering strikers. no offence, but i think nur azli and meng operate better on the right of defence. we still need the height for the centre! i just hope that coach aide, a former defender himself, can recognise this pressing issue fast and bring in some talented players.

    moving on, now that ashrin is unavailable, i hope we can get farhan farook or fadzu. i think he’s available too…

  4. i agree also the diallo brothers should go and just keep murphy and the new signing.We need to find defenders.A good foreign midfielder and defender.i see last place finish with the team we have.Least balestier have a strong defence.goals will come with time.we only need one goal a game to win a game.hopefully things will change

  5. i do not agree that we should let the diallos leave. okie, mamadou should stay…he is like the best young talent in the league! we should hold on to him. whereas for abdul, i think he’s just an average foreigner that we can do without…
