Welbeck - Injury prone and shit
Deeney -  Fat and very shit
Zaha - Would cost 40+ million not shit though

CP would never sell Zaha either, he's literally the only way they're likely to stay up.

Welbeck is too injury prone for us to take that gamble. Don't think he's shit, but his finishing is hit or miss. The far bigger issue is that we can't pin our hopes on a striker that could very easily be missing huge chunks of time.

Wang the entire contents of moshiriís wallet on Belotti

Should've done that in the summer. Maybe they tried and he wasn't interested, but I don't think we did as there wasn't even a sniff of it really in the media. He had a buyout clause too.

Belotti gives me the impression of someone who would score 1 in 32 in England then would sign for Napoli and score 38 in his first season back in Italy

Let's just sign the whole Napoli team then.

There aren't many in the PL that are obvious choices that would be available. I think we're going to be forced to look to the continent for some options.

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.

Sandro?

;)

Forgot we had Kone last season.

He'd be straight in the first team for us right now.

Let's not go overboard.

Rooney's finishing is so much better than DCL, maybe we should chuck Davey further up field?

The best game he's had here for me was pretty much that 1st pre-season game he was involved with. The second was similar too. What stood out was he was running into the box trying to get on the end of things. That tendency seemed to evaporate shortly after arriving though. Perhaps it was because Rooney was given that role, and Koeman asked him to hang back more...who knows. His stats would suggest he has a decent finish on him though.

Drastically disagree.

Yep. I genuinely can't believe people would be ok with not bringing in a striker. It's admittedly going to be a hard task now, but has one game vs Watford really covered up the failings throughout the season to date?

Apparently, Klaassen has played as a false nine before.

It would be nice to see him again, in some central role. I'm seriously disappointed at how Unsworth has frozen out so many of our summer signings.

I think to some degree up until this point I can give him some slack. When you're in a crisis of sorts, or just finding your feet it's understandable to go to known quantities. He should be talking to those players he has frozen out though during that time, letting them know what the deal is.

However, I feel that immediate finding his feet period has passed with the international break giving him more chance to familiarize himself with the new players. If they continue to all be left out en masse I'd be very disappointed. I think as Niasse has shown, all these players should be able to contribute something if coached/utilized properly in a balanced team.

On tef there's a lad saying its not unsworth picking the sides

It ainít that hard to pick a side.

Perhaps the international break was too long after all. People have too much time on their hands to dwell on these things.

KT has been very clear that (as of now anyway, I'm not soft, young players EVENTUALLY get their heads turned) he wants to stay put, pick up 10 in a row (when he could be captain by then) and he's even mentioned following Paul McStay as a one club man.

Dembele......maybe, at the end of the season.

I really want VARDY.

A pace merchant who is about to turn 31?

Not a good idea for me.

I get it mate, its a bit Andy Johnson etc and Vardy seems all cosy at Leicester but I imagine we would be attractive to him and if we play on the counter he could be good. He smells a goal as well and is an instinctive goal scorer. There's honesty in his play too and graft. We could do with experience up front to help DCL.

Ideally I'd prefer a back to goal type player obviously e.g. Dzeko but they are ten a penny these days.

Yeah, I mean a player of Vardyís ilk would be good. This is where Walsh should earn his pay though, he needs to find the next Vardy.

We could also use a Dzeko type too.

Wouldn't want Benteke. Hoping for much more mobility.

Strangely erratic player too. Can look good for a decent spell, followed by looking awful. Problem is when heís not on his game heís one of those that isnít really contributing.
