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. 

A goal poacher you say?

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

 

If we get some money for Hooper, it will be the best bit of wheeler dealing this club has ever done!

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.

 

The Fessi we've seen in the last 18 months would be one of the first out of the door for me if we get a reasonable offer.

Fletch jaoa FF ( if he can get back to his best). Rest need to go. Winnalls done nowt, Dave had a good two months in five years, Hoopers knackered, Rhodes has hopefully all ready gone. 

 

Hope Borokov can make the step up and clone Gary bannister.

I think Forrestieri and Joao may attract offers in the summer. If this is the case I expect one to leave.

 

I think Matias and Hooper will be released (shame with regards to Hooper but it would be a gamble to resign him given his fitness issues). I also expect Winnall to be offloaded if he can't force his way into the side before the end of the season.

 

That would leave Fletcher, Nuhiu, Forrestieri/Joao and Rhodes who I think Bruce will seriously look to next season. The real issue is the service and that is what really needs to be addressed.

Best case scenario for me is Hooper regains full fitness and comes straight back into the team. Based on the last two games I think he’d have a field day with the chances we’re creating. 

 

other than that, the only other strikers I’d be disappointed to see go would be Joao and Forestieri. Forestieri is out of form at the minute, but he’s unplayable on his day. It will come. 

 

I like Fletcher but he’s not the man to bag 20 goals a season. And he’s on ridiculous wages, apparently.

And he’s always on the bench. Surely not rocket science that more time on pitch could equal more goals. 

Why would u not play your top scorer. Bizarre

In all honesty I wouldn’t be against any of the current squad going. Obviously the likes AA and MM are an absolute must.

I still believe Joao's best is yet to come. Of the others, Bruce can axe whoever he chooses so far as I'm concerned.

The loss of Hooper has hurt us so much.....it's ironic that we're overloaded with forwards, they are easily the biggest drain on finances and yet, we are short of goals.

 

They can all go for me, time for a fresh start.

Fletcher is 32 next month, he won't be going anywhere as nobody else will match his wages, however for me, despite some solid performances and him being a tryer he can go for me. 

 

FF - needs to start looking interested and quickly, otherwise he can go

 

Joao - he's 25 does have some  great attributes and with decent players around him, such as Aarons he will score goals

 

Hooper - pay as you play or he can go 

 

Winnal - we can't really lose money on him and he's not had a chance so i would keep him 

 

Nuihu - release tomorrow 

 

Rhodes - i would keep him in the hope Bruce brings in the speed and some width to give our forwards some service

 

We had 20 shots today, against a very poor Reading, we need our forwards to be putting some of those away, but we also need to play a system that suits who we have on the pitch for the full 90 minutes.

The range of responses to this post betray the nub of the problem, namely we have too many strikers who all bring something to the table on their day, but none are the complete package.  What might drive the decision process could be which of these strikers would another club be willing to take on?

I’m quite happy that Bruce has his hands on the reins as I have confidence he’ll know what to do; I know I wouldn’t!
