Gamiero and Dost.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

Slimani is the only reasonable shout. He wants out and he’s not getting much game time so Leicester might let him go...unless they’re down in the shit with us.

Going to be Heart-breaking paying £40m for a 29 year old who is Leicester’s 4th choice striker. Modern football.

It's not worth signing anybody older than 25 unless they're named Dzeko or Giroud (or someone else of that ilk who we're yet to be linked with). And even then... for a team with a mid-table ceiling (this season, at least), is it worth spending big for a class 30+ year old? I'm not convinced.

There are forwards who are useful today with plenty of good years left to give. If Walsh can't find any of them, add it to the list of reasons why he should fuck off.

What a ridiculous thing to say

Tricky one this. If the plan, despite how unrealistic it seems, is to wait for a Simeone type at the end of the season, then I don't really want an interim chap to splash 40 or 50 million on players in January that the coach/manager next season might not want. Yes I know the point of a DOF is to reduce this to some extent and the coach is to get on with it. But I wouldn't like the idea of spending big on Benteke only for the new coach to not want him 6 months later.

If that becomes the situation it probably limits our targets even more

Yep...so this season is essentially a write-off...with no guarantees we’ll improve next season. Fucking hell, I’m not going to live forever.

It really is the hope that kills you.

Whoever we get, if they're not paraded in front of the cameras on the 2nd January, latest, someone needs shooting, even more than they did after the summer

I actually think sorting out the defence could be argued is the priority.

We are scoring SOME goals, but we’re fucking leaking at the back. Slow as fuck an all.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

Weve scored 10 in 11 league games and 3 of those were in the last game! i agree that both need addressing but we have much better options at the back than up top, I also think a striker would ease the pressure on the defence as the opposition wouldnt be able to push up so high, knowing they have no striker to worry about

Not 100% sure. Burnley have scored like 9 and are 7th.

We have attackers who are young, we only have Holgate who is squad player at best who is young at the back.

Need 3-4 new peak defenders soon.

Thats true about Burnley, although id still rather win 4-3 than 1-0. lets just go down the Newcastle route.....

Fully agree. But we just need A striker. An actual striker with experience who can lead the line and be at least a decent goal threat. Just one.

Then I hope it's all defenders after that. (In January)

Are we going to buy a left back, centre half and striker in January?
Hans segers is a legend ;)
