andrew1957 Cannot say I am sorry this move has failed. I just don't think another striker is priority and think that was more an agent led deal than a player we need.

The priorities are another full back, a defensive midfielder (Semedo?) and at least one wide player (Riquelme?). Keep what we have and three or four additions and we should have a competitive squad.


Again, just because this one has more public traction it doesn't mean we're not looking for the positions you mentioned.

We have Puscas, Mcnalty and Baldock, we are fine for strikers :?

Baldock is offski and McNalty is.... McNalty. Hardly a rich depth in backup options, especially as our star striker is injury prone.

Resources are finite though. It's not that those positions are more important, though they are, it's that his position is not required.

If Baldock actually goes, the situation changes, a bit, ideally at least two would go to bring another striker in.

I used to think he unfairly got a hard time on here but the more I see of him on Twitter, the more I think you were all spot on.

I remember him as good value who then went mental when he started getting twitter attention and thought he was influential and itk.
