Yeah not exactly overjoyed with this, given his record of a goal every seven championship games. Looks pretty prolific at league one level though! 😄

 

Still beggars can't be choosers I guess, at least he's an actual CF as opposed to another round peg in square hole...does this mean we're definitely not getting Zohore as Derby are in for him?

Derby have set their sights on loaning connor wickham to pair him with rooney so every chance we can still bring him in

I think this is good business for us and good business for Derby. What we all need to consider is his view on life. If he does well and enjoys his time here, he will have an opinion on where he goes and what he wants. Of course Dorbeh can pull the strings, but when does a club ever win out in a player v club standoff????

Dorbeh 😁

Derby have January recall option. We’ll probably knock him into shape then lose him.

True. I mean look at it this way. We all hope he scores a shed load, but the problem is IF he does Derby will want him back which screws us. So really we have to hope he contributes, but not overly so, other wise it's Sayonara.

Have we left it too late again getting our ducks in order?

Must admit I’ve never heard of him. Welcome to Hillsborough Jack and hopefully you’ll be amongst the goals

Welcome back to Earth.

I'm just happy we signed a striker and if he is fit a pretty decent one.

 

Loan clauses are nothing for us to worry about. 

 

Short term loan deals used to be common place.

 

We are desperate and he could score 5 or 6 vital goals for us.

Derby fans reckon he’ll score for fun here. Played through a lot of injuries for them. Reason for letting him go is they’ve tried to use him as a target man, but he’s an off the shoulder striker

He is a very good player at best and could see him playingalong side Patterson. 

 

The recall option may be similar to whta many PL clubs have where if a player is not getting game time they can recall him.

 

Also with him cominghere can not be happy at Derby if he scores goals and is doing well here I am sure he would be over moon to go back to a club where he wasnot wanted.

Like Winnall?

His record in the Championship (including Play-Offs) for Derby is 13 goals in 3,285 minutes, so a goal every 253 minutes.

 

Not amazing, but we did the stats for a few other Wednesday strikers back in July (all comps) and it was Forestieri = goal every 227 mins, Nuhiu = goal every 272 mins, Tudgay = goal every 324 mins.

 

If what's right about playing one-up top and the system not suiting him, then there's a chance we can improve on that ratio over the next few months.

Reminded me of Billy Sharp when he was at Peterborough, scored for fun. Don't read too much into the stats while he's been at Derby, he was carrying a groin injury last season and they only play 1 up top.


Was going to say the same. Similar in many ways. Clever, lively, bit of a pest with an eye for goal.

If he can recapture some form, could be a cracking signing the big man little man combo with him playing off Patterson seems good and how I expected monk to go. 

 

Without trying to be negative though, I really do hope he comes to get his head down, get stuck in  play football and score some goals. 

The last season long loan we got from Derby was buttercup and I'd have made more impact than that waste of space.
