I’ll edge towards a Scottish player only because they kicked off before us and it falls into, played a few games..

Well the alarm bells are going in my head reading that Warnock interview. Says we don’t need anymore creativity and can rely on Tav and Wing... what is this club’s problem? 
 

For years our struggle hasn’t been a lack of quality striker up front, it’s the severe lack of service they receive and not one person in the hierarchy seems to be aware. Morons

Yes I’m surprised he’s saying that. He even admits he hasn’t seen enough from Wing so really he’s saying he’s happy with Tav. How can one player with some creativity be enough? Creativity should be the priority not 2 extra strikers.

Well no interest in Roberts because he said if we sign wingers he'll need to sign 2 new full backs as well and with the budget he has it doesn't make sense to prioritise new fullbacks/wingers.

Personally I think he's absolutely right I'm not thrilled with our wingbacks but this formation has turned Dijksteel into an absolute monster I think the system isn't our problem no need to throw it all out after 1 game.

He’d just need one fullback, Dijksteel can play RB. I’m disappointed he’s sticking so solidly to the wingback idea, it relies so heavily on Spence and Johnson and they’re way too inconsistent. Coulson is good competition on the left but Spence looks lost at the moment.

Totally agree, signing a left back is crucial.

think he's saying i'll sign the priority positions (his Priority) and then see what's left/available.
he wants to play 4 at the back, but our shoestring will only stretch so far.

GK: Bettinelli - He needs to get minutes and  good coomunication with the defense.

CD:  Fry - Needs game time. I would like him to take off the gloves and add a little wildness to his game. He is too passive at times. 

CD: Hall - Needs game time. I think he is just rusty and that there is a quality player in there.

CD: Wood - Young Nathan needs this chance to shine and make his way in to the first team.

RWB: - Spence - Up your game son, or get dropped .. 

LWB: Bola - we haven't seen him play for a while, and he needs to show what he can do.

CM: Morsy - We all want to see what he can do!

AM: Wing - Want to see him in a  free roaming role, in position do fire the canon!

RF:  Folarin - Again one of those players we want to see find his feet and become a first team regular.

ST: Walker - This is now, young lad .. Score a goal or two, to nail down that position as back up striker.

LF: Coulson -  I like Hayden so much, and I want to see his merauding runs again and again; don't be scared, son!

what i would go for - outside chance of Malley, Liddle and Jones getting some game time

I would take what Warnock says with a pinch of salt during this transfer window. I doubt he is going to come right out and say "I want X, Y and Z" as when he enquires about them the price will be set in stone.

When I go to buy a car I know exactly what I want and what I'm going to look at but I never walk onto the forecourt and home straight in on the low mileage sports saloon with German Engineering that I just drove for three hours to look at. I always mooch about looking at similarish cars and when the beeming salesman (pun intended) comes out to strike up a conversation I tell him the type of thing I'm looking for and we look at one or two and walk past the one that I really want exclaiming "that looks nice if only".

The bait is inevitably taken up when I pause and say "it looks lovely but far too rich for my blood", look at a few more and dismiss them due to colour, alloys, mileage or furry dice and as I'm about to give in I get "well what about the one that you really like?" "sorry mate I'd love it but its way out of my League". "What if I could get you some discount and see if we can do a deal" "Hmmm not sure but it won't hurt I suppose". Now he's thinking I'm going to take out his finance deal and shaft me that way but I already have my finance in place but nicely if his Manager can match the interest and terms after the price has already been slashed then he has a deal. I get what I want, he gets a sale and I save thousands in the process.

Its already been mentioned on here that since Warnock has come in getting insider info is almost impossible. With decades of experience in wheeling and dealing he knows to keep his cards close to his chest and not to declare his hand. If he came out and declared what he desperately needed and then enquires about the same the selling club are going to play hard ball knowing he desires something they have. The players agent is going to do the exact same thing in contract discussions. Give the impression that it's not what you are really looking for but he's a decent lad and willing to give him an opportunity and the power is in the buyers hands.

Similarly bigging up your most expensive asset and even making him Club Captain just in case an offer is forthcoming is a far better negotiating base point than demoralising and devaluing your stock like the one who sold Bamford and spent the money on Saville while saving Steve millions allegedly.

Apparently Anthony Stokes has had his contract with Livingston cancelled by mutual consent... Hope that is not the striker target 🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

Head in my hands after that interview. We're not going to get any pace or creativity. Again. He wants more strikers to change things. Sounds like route one football for another season. We might aswell just bypass the midfield as Tav is the only player with a bit of flair.

It’s all smoke and mirrors at the moment, I wouldn’t despair too much.

I really hope you are right Billy, because that interview was deflating to say the least.

I'm not sure either would be Warnock's number one target to be honest.
