The Floriana Investments

Signing an arguably over rated  Dragomir Draganov is a consequence of shopping in the wrong market.

Starting with how the club missed out on Michael Mifsud, joining Qormi on 3rd February 2011. Reports suggested three days earlier that President Johann Said was close to wrapping up the deal of the season after Team Manager Jeffrey Farrugia met the player on many occasions in January. It is believed that there was also a third party involved in the unsuccessful deal (an ex-Floriana FC Nursery player).

At the same time, there was the question, or doubt, that the club didn’t have the cash – or perhaps the negotiating technique – to secure a target such as Mifsud. So why was there money in pursuing the likes of Bulgarian Dragomir Draganov?

If financial restraints were indeed hampering Said’s negotiating, Floriana then ignored arguably better low-cost alternatives such as Sliema’s warm bencher Jean Pierre Mifsud Triganza or Nigerian Ibrahim Babatunde who held talks with Todor Raykov after the Mifsud snub.

The Floriana approach is financially sensible, but targeting the wrong players could see you go through another new foreigner next week as an Egyptian player fled from the Mubarak protests and is set to play with the Greens in the Championship Pool..
