I think he'll be a flop personally

 

That's the spirit....if he can score for the Tykes he can score for us.

Have to say I think this is a really smart bit of business. 

 

500k (up front we think) for a 25 year old who has pretty much a 1 in 2 strike rate for his previous clubs. 

 

Ok we've perhaps trebled or quadrupled his salary (depending on reports), but compare that to the outlay we'd have to make on a Rhodes or some of the other players in this division it really is a drop in the ocean. 

Rhodes still on....

Even if he is we paid peanuts for him.

 

10 times less than Reach!!!

 

I think he'll do well

Way to support your team...

what's that gotta do with supporting my team?

 

it's an opinion based on not much, just a hunch

Just a bit of attention seeking.

no it's not it's just an opinion, does everyone have to say they'll think he'll smash it

and trust you to show up straight away, the most patronising member on here, not in a position to label anyone

I thought you weren't interested unless we were challenging for automatic? 

 

How you can write off a guy who has just signed - and has been doing pretty well this season - is beyond me.

Winnall has proved given the right service he scores goals. We just need to improve the service 

Completely agree. 

 

The players need to be braver with the ball today. 

 

Sick to the back teeth of them passing it sideways and taking the easy option when at home.

I agree with what you agree with 

we must take the game to teams not sit back and hope for gaps -trouble is does CC get that yet?

This goes for our current strike force too. We need to start playing how we were last year.

I think you're just voicing a fear we have that he won't be the answer - I think we needed to freshen things up and perhaps change the style a bit and become unpredictable this lad may just do it if we give him quality crosses

We have plenty who can put a cross in and pick a pass. They just haven't been doing it, possibly due to the fear of a mistake.

 

Barnsley have had no pressure and it's showed

Carlos rarely starts new signings, he admitted he only started McManaman as he had no choice.

 

Reach started on the bench as well. 

 

Id be disappointed if he wasn't on the bench though, assuming it was all signed in time.

I reckon he will start on the bench, come on in the 2nd half and head his first goal in for us. 

Only after he's took it onto his left then his right then flicked it up in the air to head it home.
