Totally agree with your striker assessment were well short of quality and goals. Think in Rhodes we all know what we have, capable of the goals by getting on the end of stuff but hasnt produced for years, also offers nothing else. Kachunga will work hard but dont see goals in him.

 

Windass however is a weird one. I didnt rate him when we got him and didnt even think he was a striker. And as you have pointed out his record isnt good. BUT.....

 

He is by no means a good footballer in the league of strikers we have had recently in Wickham Forestieri Joao Hooper Fletcher etc but he has decent attributes as in size strength stature and pace, and looks like he knows where the net is and can finish. His biggest assest is work rate he doesnt seem to give defenders a second. In our current set up i can see him scoring goals, reminds me a bit of when we put Warhurst up front. I know there leagues apart but he had pace and he tried so hard and shot at every opportunity.  

 

Zahore is a weird one, he looks to have the attributes we need but he again doesnt score the goals we need. If were talking about paying him or West Brom decent money id prefer it spent on someone who will get us goals.

It’s a weird reversal of how we used to do things. Previously, we seemed to look at the goals a striker had scored, without bothering about other attributes, I’m thinking Rhodes and Winnall here. Now though, we are looking at players who have the attributes to fit the team dynamic. I prefer the current policy, mainly because it is a team game, and if those players help the side function as a proper team, maybe we can overcome the lack of goals.

Yeah i agree but i deffo think we need goals from somewhere and technical ability. However the second part of this is not a monk fave. Windass i believe will be good but he needs someone to play with who will score goals. Who that is i dont know.

 

I do worry that lack of quality will do us this season tho all over the park.

I’m hoping we’ll still bring that in. We had a big rebuild to do with the amount of players we let go, and although we’ve done a few shrewd deals, we’ve only brought in one with that extra quality we require, Brown. A couple of front players with that sort of quality would do wonders for the squad. As I said, we’ve done the easy part, now it’s time to bring in that extra quality

Bit by bit the squad has taken shape. Good cover and options in most positions.

 

GK x 2

 

Right/Central CBs - Iorfa, Lees, Dunkley, Borner, Palmer

Left CB - Borner, JVA, Palmer

 

RWB - Harris, Kachunga, Palmer, Moses, Reach

LWB - Reach, Penney, Harris

 

CM - Bannan, Luongo, Brown, Fis, Hunt, Windass, Reach, Joey

 

STR - Rhodes, Windass, Kachunga

 

I think one more quality CM to avoid it being weakened by an injury to Brown, Luongo or Bannan, and one more striker, and that’s a really decent squad.

I was thinking in the night (the things that keep me awake) that we dont have another no.10 for if Brown gets injured. Maybe there is someone in the youff ready to step up?
