He’s sort of utility player Paterson. Signed as full back, played centrally, played out wide and also a striker. 
 

I wouldn’t be against signing him, but I would hope he’s not being recruited to simply be a striker. 


completely agree. We need an out and out striker. Him as well as someone like Zohore would be good.

Yes Patterson wouldn’t be the star striker signing we’d hoped for but monk said he wants two more forwards so Patterson and Zohore, who I believe helped get Cardiff promoted, would be alright.

We've got enough utility players... not sure on this one ....

From reading a few bits about Paterson is does sound like he has suffered bad injuries in the past that have kept him out for a long time. we seem to be going after those types of players, risky.

It is risky, probably a case of needs must though and these are the players who are available for nowt, and/or willing to sign short term deals on modest money (which then lowers the risk I suppose)

Can some one get Att to start following Luis Suarez he's available from Barcelona for less than Zohore is and scores goals unlike Zohore. lol

 

Dear God our links to players comes from the twitter account of a teenager, has our club got this badly run.

 

Instagram actually and what’s that got to do with the running of the club Mr Stage Payment?

If we sign Paterson as a midfielder or utility player then ok. But if he’s our cf?! Jesus wept 

My thoughts too. I get the need for flexibility, especially when working with a small squad. But, doesn't exactly fill me with enthusiasm. 

 

We've already got Reach shoe horned in out of position up front and Windass, Kachunga not necessarily recognised as out and out forwards.

 

Asks a lot of players to adapt, although recognise to date they have done well.

Zohore deal off it seems. Att just unfollowed him on Insta and started following Paterson instead

 

lol

 


he actually has as well! I really hope Paterson isn’t seen as a replacement for Zohore, we still need that target man.

Patterson to my mind is better option than Zohore.

 

Patterson work rate is very good and he keeps going for 90 minutes. The way we play he is suited to high pressing game and his pace though not exceptional is reasonable and would offer us more than we have currently.

 

He also is very good in air has a real spring and he will make us more secure when defending and more of a threat when attacking from set pieces.  With Beattie coaching him he could improve his goal scoring record and could turn him into a useful asset.

 

I dare say we all hoped for a fancy name striker who would set pulses racing but in a difficult situation I could see him improving the team if he joins us.

Paterson is better in the air than Zohore - and I think would prove better value. Personally, I think Paterson would be a good Fletcher replacement.

you mean because he’s injury proneMonkmanface 

 in all seriousness are him and Zohore similar players? I always thought Zohore was a target man where as Paterson wasn’t that type of player?

Zohore is shocking in the air. Ask Cardiff and West Brom fans

Paterson has made over 250 appearances.

 

His role has been redefined over the years. He's a striker these days - and said himself he wants to lead the line for Scotland. He has physicality and a goal in him. Good age. A rough diamond for Beattie to sharpen up. Zohore would cost a fortune for someone whose just had two disappointing seasons. Paterson would be the smarter signing.
