Gayle is out injured for 12 weeks 


and similar to Windass whereas we need a tall physical centre forward

I was looking at the under-23 and under-18 squad lists and it has Adedoyin and Hagan as forwards for the under-23s and Bonnington and Zottas as forwards for the under-18s. Both under-18 forwards were involved in the first under-23 game of the season last week against Wigan.

 

Then for the first team you have Rhodes, Windass, and Kachunga. Reach is currently being used as a forward. To say we have a lack of forwards at the club is an undersratement.

 

I'm totally expecting us to go to Bristol City next Sunday with the same choice of forwards. In fact I'm not expecting us to bring anyone in until the domestic only two week window that runs during the next international break. In all fairness though I find it hard to believe we're going to invest heavily in a forward or two while relegation to League 1 hangs over us?


We might be better doing so if we can and if they are willing. It’s much harder to get one when you can only pay them 2.5k a week. The Mackems ended up having to sign Danny Graham!

Semedo deal not done yet but think as soon as they get a RB then they’ll let Sanderson leave.

I am be wrong but where they demanding 5 million from us at the time? 


Aberdeen amazingly turned down £7m for him at one point and now they’re accepting £3m because they’re skint because of Covid.
 

McKenna is massively overrated and not worth anywhere near that money IMO. I really don’t see where the clamour and plaudits come from. We signed Bates at the time we were interested, and I said then that McKenna was a far better player then him, which is true, Bates was and is garbage, but McKenna is still a bang average centre back. We’re really not missing anything major trust me.

Whatever happened to Bates ? Has he found a club yet ?

Think he went to a club in Belgium?

Maybe another Mark Reynolds!

Keinan Davis 

I like Keenan Davis, he has good attributes, but goal wise, he’s less productive than Zohore, who himself is hardly prolific Along with our other goal shy forwards, who will score the goals we need

Yeh, pretty much my thoughts 

 

Can’t say I can put my finger on a name who we could realistically look to bring in, I think it’s a case of taking a chance on someone

So...you've heard or suggesting?

Our chances of bringing someone in who’s going to guarantee goals is next to nil particularly with the budget we are probably currently working within?

Play them all in a 4-3-3, and they might get enough between them. Davis could be that person to take a chance on, as I said, he does have the attributes, so he could suddenly click
