Delron Buckley (born December 7, 1977 in Durban) is a South African soccer player.

 

His soccer career began with local team Butcherfille Rovers Durban, but 17 years old he was transferred to German team VfL Bochum, whom he left in 2004 for Arminia Bielefeld. After only one season he moved to big team Borussia Dortmund on July 1, 2005. In 2005/06 he played very unsuccessfully for Borussia Dortmund and did not score any goal in 28 matches. He has now lived in Germany long enough to bypass the cap on foreign players.

 

For the South African national team Buckley has played 60 games and scored 9 goals. He represented his country at the 1998 FIFA World Cup, 2002 FIFA World Cup and the 2004 African Nations Cup.

Delron to the rescue?

South African striker Delron Buckley

No African star is making a bigger impact in the German Bundesliga than Arminia Bielefeld's Delron Buckley.

 

The South African striker is Bundesliga's joint-top scorer this season with ten goals in 13 games, which is the same total he managed during his entire career with his previous club Bochum.

 

Buckley's revival as a goal-getter is prompting him to set new targets for his international career.

 

"My main aim is to be at the 2006 World Cup Finals with South Africa," says the 26-year-old striker from Durban.

 

Buckley says that his new daughter has helped him find the scoring touch.

 

"I've been inspired by the birth of my daughter earlier this year," explains Buckley.

 

"And of course Arminia suits my style.

 

"At Bochum I spent too much time on the subs bench.

 

"It was very frustrating but all that's behind me now, I only look forward, the future is what counts."

 

Arminia's coach Uwe Rapolder says: "We expected a lot from Delron and he hasn't let us down.

 

"There are few left-footed strikers in the league with his sharpness and speed."

 

Even Bochum's team boss Peter Neururer now seems to regret letting Buckley leave the club.

 

"I knew Delron had it him to be a great striker, when he concentrates on the job he can be world class."

 

The Arminia fans will be hoping that Buckley's goals will help establish their club in the Bundesliga after a decade of failure.

 

The side has won promotion into Germany's top division four times since 1994 but all their previous ventures have ended in relegation mainly because of a lack of goal-scoring power.

But....I really don't think we need more strikers. I would love Nugent to come but we have Vaughan on the way back, Anchiebe is going to set the premiership alight this season, Beattie is usually v good and Johnson eager to prove himself, McFadden is there as backup.

I don't think we need someone who "might" be good...

could do with another one of HIM, we know now we can get more money if we sell, were learning from our mistakes ;) if he turns out to be a amzing player sell to a different league for £50 mil :) then buy aload of players, thats my opinion on what we shud do

That is always a danger but I think financially we are in a better position to keep rising young talent...at the rooney time I think the board needed the cash.

Lets hope they want the club to compete up with the best which means keeping the best young talents.

Oh and by all acounts, vidarrson is looking very good too.

 

I think we will see Anchiebe muscling his way into the first team, my money is on him taking Beattie's position alongside Johnson....

or alternativly we can get him a regular starter maybe winning a few pieces of silverware. maybe persuading him to stay and making us a more atractive prospect for other players

Thats what i was thinking, i want him to be a great player for us not somewhere else. Its so negative to be thinking if hes good we can sell and get good money for him. Everton are better than that.

I know it's only a trial, however some of our better players came on a year trial signing.

 

If nothing else, like Mac says, it makes players consider their future, and may spear them on to playing with a little more effort, and maybe heart - plus it should ease injury woes come the winter months.

 

With Beattie, McFadden and Johnson, as well as Buckley who can play in a forward position when needed, we have added another dimension to our squad IMO.

 

Tiz all gud!

I would Like to see Our Midfield Like This TBH

 

 

 

---------- Arteta Cahill VDM

 

 

 

Hopfully the ------ will be Delron Buckley if he is good enough and Arteta and Cahill could work together at getting forward. We need VDM on the right TBH not the left as he has to cut inside and then cross the ball which isn't the best ball in the box to head to ball goal-bound! :D

cant agree there mate, Arteta and Cahill in the middle is too weak defensively.

and when VDM cuts inside a cross aimed to the back post across the keeper is much easier to deflect past the keeper imo. works great if the winger has the ability to turn the full back

Being South African myself I have had the opportunity to watch Buckley throughout his career. His preferred position is left wing, he has been used as a striker on occassion but he is not a natural striker. His biggest asset is his pace and skill on the ball. For the South African national team he almost been used exclusively as a winger. As a player he can best be described as a better version of James McFadden. They paly in the same positions, have similar qualities but often do not live up to their true potential.

 

Personally I have always been a fan of Buckleys and feel that he would add something positive to the Everton squad. VDM is better suited to the right side of midfield and Buckley would be a better option than Kilbane and McFadden on the left. Having him and AJ in the same side would add the much needed pace we have lacked in recent seasons!

Nice one for that bafana :)

 

At the end of the day it would bulk the squad up more which will be ideal if we get into a good cup run (heres hoping eh :D ). It's another opition for the team and by all acounts before he went to Dortmund he was superb for his former club....and if he can keep Killa on the bench then I don't see what bad can come out of it :D

He is saying will only be on a loan deal as don't have the money to buy him as we already brought in new players.

 

With VDM, Kilbane and McFadden able to play there on top of Naysmith if needed does it seem to anyone else that someone will be leaving on top of Naysmith??

Strange one really...DM must be interested or he wouldn't have given him two appearences as sub...but now they're off for ten days. Decision must have been taken one way or another I'd have thought...just have to wait and see.

From what I saw of him in the little time he got against Celtic to me he seemed the same as killa. Head down and run at the players.

 

If a loan deal and not on massive wages don't think its to bad to have cover though

He does seem extreamly similar but looked like he could actually beat a man when i watched him at preston and he played in a few decent crosses too which you wont catch Killa doing :unsure:

South African international Delron Buckley is hoping he did enough to impress Everton during a recent trial with the club.

The 28-year-old featured for the Toffees against Preston and Celtic during the pre-season, but has now returned to his club side Borussia Dortmund.

 

"I have loved it at Everton," he told Kick-Off magazine. "The guys have made me feel very comfortable here and the team plays to my style.

"I am hoping and praying I get offered a deal. Mentally it would be a very good move for me."
