Sam Winnall & Gary Hooper

Recommended Posts

I'd still love to see Winnall given a run in the team . He is a proven scorer at this level.

Fletch Joao Forestieri and Winnall should be our front 4 for the next 18 months...for this season Matias can chip in up top if needed until the summer, and Hooper might make a few before the end of the season. Aaarons is a forward too so got plenty there

 

No need for Nuhiu anymore and then as much as I like him Hooper will be gone in the summer - as well as Matias and Aarons back to Newcastle so that's 4 players out straight away

Yes, it’s like a dream come true 

 

 

Compared to the likes of Taylor-Fletcher, Feeney, and Jeffers yes it really is. Even taking into account the injuries. But you'll get your wish soon and Hooper, Winnal & Rhodes will all be ditched and we'll go back to signing freebies.

Westwood, Lees, Hutchinson, Lee were all free transfers so I will look forward to it

If Hooper is leaving, we will need to know whether we can replace him. Players like Winnall and Rhodes have been brought in, and are quite simply not good enough to start games at this level. Forestieri and Joao have the quality, and if we could keep him fit, Matias also has that quality. Those four, supplemented by one of Fletcher or Nuhiu, as a Plan B, would be my choices going forward. I’d like to see another forward come in, but that might not be possible. Out of interest, under an embargo, can we sign young players for our development squad?

We should sign Balotelli to replace Hooper. He's so cool he was throwing darts at youth players at City.

For some reason when I say Sam Winnal, Gary Hooper in my head, I then want to sing ..... It’s the end of the world as we know it, it’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

He can't really impress them if he's not match fit yet...

 

Only way players get match fit is to impress in training/non competitive games and earn match time.

Absolutely.. and be hungry for it.

If you've got some dog in you then you'll get noticed for selection.

No matter how much he impresses in training the only way he is going to get game time is if Pukki gets injured or his goals dry up

Good, that's exactly what needs to happen.

Although Lees and Lee were not technically free. We paid a fee for Lees and Oee was under 24 when he joined us.

Agreed.  Would like to see him back up and running again.  

 

Winnall and Joao up top with Fernando in just behind.  That would be a lethal front three.

Apologies, got my threads mixed up, my wires crossed, my shoes on the wrong feet and my knickers in a twist!
