We really should have someone, anyone, ready to come in on the first of the month. Even if it's someone who will eventually be the back up striker. We won't though

We'll all be here on deadline day saying surely it can't be a third time we've been promised the world and got nowt...... we'll fuck it up no doubt. We'll get a striker but it will be for a ridiculous price. They don't know what they are doing. Wait too long for decisions. Followed by pay whatever in negotiations. Followed by we just won't bother. It's like they can make sensible decisions

Caroll, Rondon both good shouts its what we need a hairy ass twat who can bulky and hold the ball up ...been saying it for months ...Dembele doesn't have the bully about him imho we don't need a flyweight speedster .
Das Bost any good with his back to goal ?.

I look forward to a unexpected, initially underwhelming signing who ends up with double figures and saves our necks. Kevin Campbell mk2 will do me just fine for now.

One target man and one speed merchant for me. Surely we need at least 2 strikers bringing in. Otherwise one injury means we're back to the same situation we're in now.

I always say him but Babacar would be a decent stopgap, got all the attributes.

I'm going to be that guy again.

Rondon and Carroll are both 28. Signing either player would do nothing to rectify this massive problem we have where there are basically no peak age players in the squad. Neither has anywhere near the level of quality where a big short-term outlay would be worth it. I can see one of those two on loan, if their current club would allow it, but not on a permanent basis.

22-25 is the ideal range for a permanent signing (barring access to someone who is truly class, of course). Players that age have enough experience to contribute today but with room to go up a level.

The rot is only going to get worse if we keep spending on older players that don't really move the needle. Williams, Bolasie, Schneiderlin, Sigurdsson. What do we have to show for having brought that group to the club? Spending anything significant on Rondon or Carroll would be very much in the same vein.

We donít necessarily need the big lump style forward anyway.

If the new manager wants to pass it more then we might want a more mobile one.

Unless the new boss is gonna replace everyone north of the halfway line,  we are set up for a big lump to bring what players we have into the game .
