Was thinking about another striker we were going to bring in. 

 

Windass, Rhodes and Kachunga will all obviously be wanting to be pushing for a starting spot at this point of their career. 

 

Instead of going for a tried and tested forward in their mid-late twenties, should we not go for a young loanee who is happy to battle against those three for a starting spot/sub appearances? Saves upsetting the applecart? 

 

This is purely based on stats rather than what I have seen, but maybe Keinan Davis (Villa), Eddie Nketiah (Arsenal) or Viktor Gyokeres (Brighton, played with Penney last season I think with St Pauli)? 

Only Davis, of that group, has the physical presence I believe Monk is looking for. If we can sign that type of striker, then yes I’d like to see us add a younger pacy forward to the group. Maybe revisit the Simmonds deal?

All seems very quiet at the minute with rumours etc. To be honest I thought the Zohore deal might have been done by now. 

I think that, or a similar deal will be done From some of Monk’s comments though, maybe some of the other hoped for deals have been blocked by the chairman. The manager again commented last night, that he played the youngsters, though he’d have expected loans, but he had to deal with the hand he’d been dealt. It happened last season as well, talk about us adding loans from the Premier League big boys, only for not to transpire

According to a claim in the Greek media, Middlesbrough are very close to completing the signing of PAOK striker Chuba Akpom.

The 24 year old, who has also been linked with Super Lig sides Besiktas and Fenerbahce in recent weeks, is now expected to join Middlesbrough in the next few days, say Sdna.

It’s reported the Championship club will pay €3m to PAOK for the attacker.

Arsenal after £15m apparently, slight discrepancy there then

 

The pigs will need a bigger loan from the Bin Ladens to sign him then.

Like the idea of Gyokeres. Think Sansea are after him.

 

Been old we were and maybe still are scouting in Holland. From pal who lives on Dutch Belgian border.

Well he have couple of Dutch players that might be able to do some sort of swap deal with

Just a hunch but reckon Zohore will be Derby bound.

Well if they want to carry paying over the odds for players that's fine  Rooney's not pulling any trees up for his hefty wedge and I don't think Zahore will either, but Derby have just raked in 15m for the two players they sold to the pigs. I think we stick to our current philosophy of recruiting young hungry players and in a couple of seasons it will pay dividends. Derby are on a slippery slope.

Charlton have turned down a bid from an unnamed championship club for Macauley Bonne, Could it be us?

 

He'd be a smart signing for a Championship club. Seems to have something about him, was on fire in the first half of last season. Still a good age and wouldn't break the bank.
