Look out at 3pm today and see who isn't playing in League 1, may give a clue
I will check out Bakayoko - the dark horse for me is Keiffer Moore now a 1st Division player with Barnsley - an ideal front man - probably unlikely - or Tom Bradshaw also of Barnsley - out of contact after this season.
But like say southampton we cant afford to spend all the money we receive just like its always been so why think its suddenly different now? Were in debt.
Occasionally you have to speculate to accumulate if the right opportunity arises and I believe that time is now with the potential Cole and Toney deals. They are both young enough and good enough to improve further and makes us money in the future.
But maybe we are speculating to accumulate with the deals we've already made and are looking to make now.
It's like your own household finances. You know what you can afford and what you're stretching yourself to afford and what you can't afford. You don't go for the latter because to do so would put your family at risk financially. Maybe the signings we're hoping for come under the 'can't afford' bracket?
If we do sogn Cole it will be a loan for sure. But this indicates a permanent so expect it to be someone from L1 or L2 who has made the step up.
Wigan want shot of Cole so it could well be a permanent whoever he signs for and there doesn't seem that many Div 1 options left. Although where did the suggestion we were signing a Div 1 player come from yesterday, the Bristol Post?
I know nothing about what a good or bad striker is, i can only go by what i see @ the mem and the one player that impressed me recently was Steve Morison @ Millwall. Would love a player of his experience/caliber to join us
good shout,big tone could av a word with the geezer Apples and pairs and all that lark
We had the chance to sign him 10 years ago, along with Simeon Jackson.
Steve Morrison was at Stevenage and Jackson was at Rushden and Diamond, we could of got both of them for about £300,000 combined.
We ended up signing Darryl Duffy and Andy Williams instead.
