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.

Nah, any replacement would be brought in to put pressure on Tosun or even take his place rather than just make the odd cameo and chip in some goals. Strikers probably more than any other position need kept on their toes so I'd expect any player brought in to be a decent upgrade on Niasse.

Over the past decade, I am not sure we have actually had two strikers of the sort you are describing at the same time, so I would not be so quick too assume it will be happening. And, in case you need reminding, Niasse had the 9th best goals/90 rate in the Prem last season at .65 goals/90 mins, so actually improving on his strike rate through a replacement will be very difficult.

Genuine question, when was the last time we had two strikers scoring 10+ goals in a season?

Was it Sharp and Lineker or Sharp and Gray? Was it '85 when we had 5 or 6 players score 10 or more. Even Mountfield got 10 I think (not counting OG's).

We've never had the money in the past though have we. I'd guess there was possibly a time when a combo of Yakubu, Cahill, Fellaini or Beckford all got double figures in a season but I can't be bothered looking.

Regarding a striker; any hipsters tell me how Dolberg did last season? He was hyped up to buggery but it all seems to have gone quiet on that one. Dembele could be another option too.
Yes, we're being condescending. Yes, that means we're talking down to you.

In All comps? 15/16 had Lukaku & Barkley (25 & 12), the year before had Lukaku Mirallas (20 & 11).
But for 2 out and out strikers, in all comps you have Saha & Beckford in 2010/11, who got 10 apiece.

Just league goals you have to go back to 2002/03 when Campbell & Radzinski got 11 each in the league (and a 3rd striker, Rooney, got 6). They got 13 & 11 in all comps respectively.

Campbell (12) & Barmby (10) in all comps 99-00
Ferguson (11) & Speed (11) in all comps 96-97
Kanchelskis (16) & Stuart (14) in all comps 95-96
Cottee (19) & Rideout (12) in all comps 93-94

Innaugral season of the premier league is the second time you come across 2 strikers getting 10+ in the league alone With Cottee (12) & Beardsley (10)

Dolberg got 9 in 30 for Ajax, he's in the WC squad but I think even Cornelius (shit at Cardiff briefly) is getting on before him

Garbutt or Contract Dave?

Dont like Danny Rose.

Spends 80 minutes of the match on his arse.

Absolutely loves to break our attack up by turning and playing a ball back when there are acres of space in front too ....useless at attacking .

Rose is probably the best attacking full back in the league like.

I really rate Tosun but Im a big believer in signing starters and the old starters becoming subs if the new player is good enough.

If we can get Batshuayi we should, Tosun would still have a huge part to play.

I agree and thats why im worried about our transfer policy this season as we seem to be selling all of our first team players and leaving behind those that werent good enough to challenge them, weve already said we wont replace like for like with regards to numbers, so how are we going to strengthen our squad, which was pretty weak last season? I also dont know what other teams sells their leading goalscorer 2 seasons on a trot and doesnt have a replacement in before!
