I watched the Huddersfield v Peterborough play-off Final yesterday, primarily doing a scouting job for David Moyes, and I know we're talking about a lower, lower league than ourselves, but Posh's prolific striker Craig Anthony Robert Mackail-Smith, age 27, and winner of League One Player of the Year for the 2010-11 season, with 30 goals in 47 league apps., this season - caught my eye.
He reminds me of a 'beefy' Diego Forlan, a workaholic, with (obviously) a definate hunger to score goals.
He's one of those 'late bloomer' footballer's and I'm reading (link), Posh expect the Scotland international to leave London Road before the start of next season and will not stand in the 27-year-old's way of joining a bigger club - three clubs supposedly interested are Everton, Norwich and QPR. With Mackail-Smith saying, "I'd love to be in the Premier League next season, that would be a dream come true."
I would seriously consider this lad as our new number nine.
Some blues might say, sheesh, is this the depths we have to go - I'd answer, you do the maths. http://www.teamtalk.com/everton/6959511/Posh-striker-eyes-top-flight
