    Strikers. Who would you use, shift, buy?

    He should start more. For me Joao and Winnall should have more input in the next game.
  2. After a toothless performance I am wondering who, out of all the strikers we have, who to go with next season. If there was a luxury to choose? So in the full signed up players we have FF, Joao, Dave, Fletcher, Hooper, Rhodes (likely to return), Winnall. Who stays? Who goes? You decide. I know moving players is not easy, but if we could? Myself, I would let Dave and Fletcher go, and Hooper if he doesn't prove his fitness to a good level. I know many like Fletcher for his attributes but I am just thinking we have to be looking at goal ratios. Some have not been successful here but what with the new manager and all. If there was a big physical striker out there with more goals then I would try. Again due to contracts and stuff any movement would be no easy task. A tight defensive unit + goals = a decent league position. There will be contrasting views on this topic. Seen them for all the forwards. I was just thinking collectively what the best way forward would be. FF as a 10 behind a 1 or FF behind a 2 or could he sit deeper? I don't think so with the latter option. Is Bruce going to pin his hat on FF with just the one in front? The justification for a big pool of forwards might not be there if so....
  3. Chris Bart Williams. We bought him as a teenager and he was years ahead of his age. Thought he'd do more in the game. Remember seeing Lloyd Awusu tearing up Rotherham all game long but proved pretty hopeless for us.

    Nando Number Ten

    Didn't we see a rare good performance under Jos where Joao, Dave, and Fessi did well in a front three? Can't remember the game. If I remember right Fessi was like a number 10 with Lucas and the big guy up top.

    Lucas - Goal Machine

    Also Rhodes might not be quite out of the equation just yet. Just need say a front three weighing in with goals and a solid team shape and all is possible. Aarons and the like could add pace and I think everyone knows pace is important.

    Lucas - Goal Machine

    I'd look at him in a front 3 for sure. This consistency thing is constantly thrown up against him but most of our strikers have had dips or injury. I think any player who looks a bit leggy has the consistency thing thrown up that bit more than that more non leggy type. His ratio of goals isn't bad in spells. And he offers something. It may be FF, Hooper/Winnall, Joao in a front 3. Hope them strikers who have been injured can sort themselves out. If Bruce plays his 4-2-3-1 I'm not sure who'd best play as the 1. The front 3 may suit us best. Bruce might try and move a few on from the squad.

    Wonder how the Dortmund staff did so well going in at Huddersfield and Norwich? Different structures maybe? It's worked for them up to now. German league experience going into the English game. Sadly not for Jos.

    £2m for Bruce

    From SWFC Supporters Club Twitter account Apparently Steve Bruce has been offered £40k a week to take over at Wednesday. The info appears to have come from Chris Wilder #swfc Got the calculator out and it kind of adds up apart from who's said it. Trying to work that one out.

    Any kind of brain structure coming into the club? JL stopping. We heard that. So what will change it up then? New coaches, new backroom staff, new advisors, a new tea lady, a new number 2, 3, 4, a new dof, a new ceo? Can we aim for the Huddersfield, Norwich way of doing things? How's it now going to work? How's it now going to be different? Ask!!!!

    We didn't get promoted though cos the journeyman manager choked at the last hurdle and we didn't go for it at that last hurdle. Who's responsible for bringing in journeyman managers with little success history in the English game?
