"A couple more strikers"

Recommended Posts

Apologies if this has already been covered in other threads.Alex Neil has just been on SSN, quote as follows:"I think we''ve still got a little bit of work to do in terms of... firepower is the big thing for us. If we get a couple more strikers, which we will do before the window ends, then I think the rest of the team is certainly as strong, if not stronger than it was before."A couple of strikers... fighting talk. Good stuff.

Paddy Davit mentioned that AN has said before about a ''proven Championship striker'' so I''d imagine we''d go for one player from this league and maybe a loanee (like N''Doye) to provide depth and competition.

[quote user="Syteanric"]So "2 more" has gone to "at least one more"... will that go to ''we scoured Europe but...."[/quote]The quote in my OP is 100% verbatim, I saw the words come out of his mouth in that exact order. Anyone else who saw the interview on SSN will verify it.

We don''t need to sign any strikers.If our ''equivalents'' to Marcus Rashford can''t find the passion nor skill to start knocking them in, what the f*ck is the point of paying the wages, the academy, coaches or us as a f*cking football team?

given our recent record of players coming through the academy into our first team there is a very reasonable case for disbanding it altogether....we''re spending a lot of money every season to maintain a grade A academy status, to just release youngsters at the end of their contracts and supply lower league teams and the likes of Lowestoft with a new intake every summer.

we''d be better off carrying on with what we''re presently doing with the likes of Maddison,Godfrey,Thompson and just scouring young talent from lower league club''s first teams and snapping them up.

The Murphys, Morris, Loza, Cantwell etc. are all graduates from before Cat A status, I believe.

And has it ever entered your head to question why we continue to sign youth players from elsewhere despite that FA Youth Cup winning team?Or do you really believe football pans out like Championship Manager 01/02, like your reply suggests?

Niche response, but eerily accurate.It''s a difficult balance, and I would love to see youngsters coming off the Academy conveyor belt a la Southampton, but realistically the manager changes so much at any football club, his first priority is always instant success, and that can rarely be achieved by investing in youth players and giving them lots of first-team football.The difficulty is that the FAYC-winning team were Adams''s babies, and for whatever reason they haven''t kicked on in the way that we''d hoped. With Cat 1 status, you can recruit and retain talent from further afield, and coupled with the improvements at Colney over the summer this should (theoretically at least) pave the way for a more talented crop of youngsters coming through in a couple of years.

Trouble is AN was confident about MC. Great result today so can only improve chances of landing a proven striker if coming from a rival team

Id like to see us bring in a seasoned pro al a Lambert, and a young striker, maybe from the lower leagues, someone who can hopefully go on and perform in the PL.
