Strikers. Who would you use, shift, buy?

Recommended Posts

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....

Looking forward to seeing if Bruce can bring on borukov through the summer months to see if he's good enough.

Get rid of Nuhiu and probably Winnall if he isnt fancied.

 

Keep Fessi Joao and Fletcher

 

Try and get money for Rhodes and Hooper

 

Sign no one as we cant

Personally hope Winnall gets a chance in the next few games. Still think he has something to offer us.

We thought we couldn't sign anyone in January then 3 arrived. They'll definitely be a lot of departures in summer and won't be suprised at some arrivals.

Id start two upfront (fletcher + joao/winnall) 

 

Reach one side, FF left side and we win more games than we lose

Think Winnall Is the only poacher type striker we have other than Hooper think he’d have nicked one today. Fletcher is great but lacks the goal poachers knack.

Fessi only one I would keep.

We need 2 or 3 quality striking additions to be a top 6 side.

More pace, more movement, greater skill than what we already have.

You wouldn’t want to keep Joao? He has all the attributes you’ve just mentioned

Fletcher has his uses despite being awful in front of goal , joao can stay . The rest including the over rated one season wonder ‘fessi’ can happily go

He should start more. For me Joao and Winnall should have more input in the next game.

I just hope we get 6 games in before fans start saying they never thought Bruce would be the right man for us.

If he  gets the backing from DC then he will turn this club around, best manager out there we could have got.
