Zohore n Patterson tbf would be class but then added to Rhodes windass kachunga 

 

is that too many or just right ?


The way we are playing seems to be having a front two that works their nads off and both get replaced around 60mins, so I think 5 forwards will be right, especially when there are 3 games a week.

Would think the minumum when you look at actual goals scored by them last season.  To be fair Wundass looks well up for it so far.

Nixon never knows the real figures. 


Not often the first to break transfer news either, didn’t tell us Windass or Kachunga were signing or break the Paterson news either.  He’s like the modern day Club call

Nixon is on the ball about a lot of things ? Said windass was signing and said wot was holding the deal up, think zohore will arrive on deadline day or just b4 stick to our offer no one else will come in and they’ll take it

He doesn’t know them all, to be fair to him he knows the general gist of the ones he does report ie who wants who but the detail is the gossip/conjecture. The Bruce thing being an example. Newcastle never had an issue with paying compensation. So when he’s quoting figures I take that bit with a heavy dose of salt.

 

It’s promising that talks are ongoing and I expect it will go to deadline. Could be a good combo with Paterson who does the dirty work.

He is, but not the numbers.

Seems crazy If West Brom reject a 25k a week offer. Surely that is better than a player sitting in the stands or at home and still paying him his full wages. Have to admit I’m surprised we are willing to pay 25k a week if it is true. 

I'd be pleased if they reject that, not worth £25k pw. 

 

The fact they've given him a stupid contract, not our fault and bringing on someone on so much more than the majority of the squad, bar a handful (Bannan, Reach, Rhodes) may not be good for morale. 

 

And he's injured? Expected to be out for another month?.... If so,  I'd steer clear, at this rate it will be Christmas before he's match fit.

Nixon is normally spot on with a lot of things particularly with regards to us. As for our budget, ultimately it’s down to what DC is prepared to pay. He probably knows as we all do, relegation would be a financial disaster for us and we can’t afford to let it happen?

Nixon also saying zohore has a slight injury so that might explain why the deal is taking so long? We can leave the offer on the table up to them? He’ll arrive deadline day imo

After listening to Monk’s interview yesterday including his view of what will happen to many clubs if crowds are kept out for the next six months I am surprised we have been able to meet the financial requirements to sign Paterson never mind any more

Don’t know what the situation is regarding FFP and the lack of match day income.  But DC deserves a massive thanks for funding our losses while still bringing in players in this climate.

Heard the injury will put him out for week's

I think it’s time we moved on for Zohore. Expensive and carrying an injury isn’t what we need. We need someone that can come in to the team straight away. Surprised if we aren’t exploring the European market, usually cheaper.

25kpw and injured? Walk away. Has to be more sensible alternatives. 


Agreed, we need to move on and must be more promising and affordable options.

He fits the profile, and the price is about what you’d expect to be paying for a player of his calibre. If he is carrying an injury, then that’s a worry, and we might be better looking elsewhere. Nobody springs to mind right now, maybe Davis at Villa, although Smith said he will be involved with the first team. In fact he started the other night, and added to his long list of blanks. Has good attributes, which make you think things might click. His scoring record is ridiculously poor though

Well, there's 3 weeks of the transfer window left.  We don't particularly have to rush and can look at other options.

 

According to Transfermarkt, he's missed 38 games since 17/18 through injuries.  3 seperate injuries last season...all calf issues...one of which is this injury which is still ongoing.  😟
