Im getting annoyed with all the mellor loving that is going around. Yes he scored 20 goals, but how many times did he score when he played? 3 and 4 goal hauls in 1 match against inept opposition leave a false goals tally at the end of the season. He is a decent league 1 striker who we should be no longer pursuing if he will not accept the wages that we think he is worth. I will not lose any sleep if he doesnt sign. If he was that good, why didnt he play 46 games??????

He scored 20 goals in a struggling side with virtually no midfield service. And your point about, 'why didn't he play 46 games', that just emphasises the point that he scored 20 goals without playing as often had he would have liked to. He's a natural goalscorer and formed a good partnership with young Madine. Completely ran the show against Tranmere...

Oh good. Someone with an doable alternative.

Please explain your wise and wonderful solution.

If we can sign him better than anyone else i think we can afford.

However, fed up of chasing him around when other targets could slip away. Either sign him ASAP or move on.

You can only play against the opposition put in front of you.

And I didn't see anyone else pulling up any trees when he wasn't in the side.

Tranmere. Exactly.

Yeah..the same Tranmere who beat us 3-0 in earlier fixture :mellow:

any player who scores 20 in a season when, as you put it , didn't play 46 games is worth stumping up a bit more cash for.

the solution is, someone who wants to play for the club, not a weighty wage packet and if that means getting a lesser player (although i dont think it would) so be it. Anyone wondering why Preston want rid if hes so good?

They don't want rid...

but every club has a price that they'd sell a player for...we've met that price.

because they couldnt afford his wages.

just because a team wants rid doesnt mean they are no good - We have taken Jones, Bennett, Prutton and Semedo, who have all looked excellent.

Proven scorers against good sides are required aswell, not just against numpties

Where have you been for the last 50 odd years! All players want the heftiest wage packet they can get. Few players (if any) are willing to take a pay cut and for Mellor to come here that is exactly what he has to do. Tell you what, let's get your boss to reduce your wages by a third and see if you are happy with it!

Groundhog day indeed!
