  1. No out and out strikers means top half finish. Out and out striker 15-20 this season mean challenging for top 6 finish. We have too many unknown player abilities to expect anything better, some may rise to the occasions but other have not done it for the last 2 seasons, to suddenly expect a big upturn in division 3 is more hope than actual outcome.
  2. If this transfer takes any longer Johnson will be announcing his retirement.
  3. I do agree, but equally leaving it till the last 2 weeks before the season starts instead of having the players in for the full pre season is an error by those in charge. Yet we make the same error every season. We should not have to sacrifice the first 10 games of the season each year, just because the club management leave everything to the last minute. QPR had all their signing in for pre season, the players have played and trained together for 6 weeks. Some of those player them signed later after being on trial. Why could we have not done the same, why does everything have to be someone elses fault, our club needs to start running more professional lets hope with DM involved that does improve.
  4. With Bannan playing further up the pitch he improves any team, but if he plays the role he has for the last 2 season then for me he needs to be moved on. We played Reach out of position for half of the time he was with us and he still scored 20+ goals and made nearly 30 assists in 200+ games, just think how good he could have been had he played left wing and been paid on time. Bannan for me is the same when playing as a holding midfielder he is an expensive luxury, when playing as an attacking midfield he is an important cog. Byers is now the holding midfielder, if this is where Bannan see himself, then thank you for the service but getting his wages off the books and a fee helps the team stay within the allowed rules.
  5. We just seem to be buying lots of midfielders again. We need a striker with proven goals and we need cover at centre back when our only first team players are Iorfa, Dunkley, Hutch all with injuries issues in the last 18 months. Byers seems a strange signing unless Bannan or Paterson are due to be leaving. Central midfield Bannan, Paterson, Wing, FDB, Adeniran, Hunt, how many do we need?
  6. I have been presently surprised by the amount of signing we have made but there is a massive gap up front with a proven goal scorer, we lack consistent goals in the middle of the park and 1 or 2 injured in defence and we are having to play unproven kids a lot more than we would want. For me the current squad is a top half squad with a few players getting into form we might push for the play offs, but the likes of Bannan, Green, Paterson need to be more consistent with the goals and assists and the two forwards signed on loan need to be in the goals. Should we sign a proven scorer then we could have the makings of a top 6 team, but the worry up front is matched by a centre back option of Iorfa, Hutch, Dunkley not the fitted group of players we have ever had. I would love us to sign some experience in such a key position, definitely needed with Borner departing. With the amount of options signed for central midfield if Hunt/Waldock are not going to get game time then they need to be sent out on loan to get some regular first team minutes as it will improve them, as happened when we sent Clare and Thorniley out a few season ago.
  7. Shows the real need for a proven goal scorer we all hope the lad from Wolves hits the back of the net regular but by his own admission he is a winger, the Albanian Striker we brought in who only managed 1 goal in 14 games in Scotland also does not look like the answer to our prayers unless he does a Charlie Wyke and suddenly starts scoring. For me I would have enquired about Marcus Forss from Brentford, will score 20+ in league one and with Brentfords promotion wont be getting much game time in the league next season, unless Toney is sold. Or we could take a chance on Jerome Sinclair release from Watford last season for Liverpool youth players has alot of the attributes for a good striker but needs the right manager to develop him. The free agent options are looking thin now because we have left it so late to get forwards in. Sanogo, Wickham, Baston, Robson Kanu, Carroll, Niasse are all still free agents but would probably costs and have not delivered much in the last 2 seasons. But could a full season in league one turn their careers back around who knows.
  8. The game is live on sky at 5pm. Save your cash and the travel costs and spent it on a new shirt then attend the next game at home, then at least the money goes to the club.
  9. I dont know that 31 year old we signed called Waddle didnt do to badly.
  10. I would be getting in touch with Brentford and asking to take Marcus Forss on a season loan, a young Finnish striker who played on loan at Wimbledon two season ago scoring 11 in 18 and played a lot last season but second fiddle to Toney on 9 starts in 39 appearances scoring 7 goals, with their promotion to the EPL his playing time is going to be lessened and a championship team will come calling, that why we need to get in now for him. Would be the striker we need.
  11. For me this seems a strange signing, he is 31 in the next few months, he is a left winger that seems to keep himself fit plays a lot of games and contributes, but for me we seem to be signing what available instead of signing what we need. We made this mistake last season we signed lots of wingers when in fact we needed a striker that could put the ball in the net. I cannot see Johnson signing on league one wages, I just think the money would be better spend on getting a proven scorer in. I also think Sims would be a better option on the wing, at the right price and age and one that will improve and be worth a few quid in a few years. He can play left wing or right wing and in 28 games last season in League one had 8 assists, he is used to playing the DM way and for me would just be a better option than Johnson The Albanian lad signed at the week end does not seem to have any real goal scoring pedigree currently, so a proven striker is really a must before the season starts. Yes we played ok yesterday but we once again showed our inability to put the ball in the back of the net.
  12. The funny thing is all these ex players talk about how much they loved the club, the fans, the chairman treating them like family. Yet every last one of them wants to eek out that extra money to line their pockets. Its the modern football, they dont give a poo about the cub or the fans only their wallets.
  13. Lets just hope he channels his inner Gianluca Vialli. Good luck to the her and I hope everything goes well.
