That is near enough our whole tally last season from three players...

Tbf am not asking a lot from them 3 forwards. Am asking britt to add 4 goals to his tally in what i hope will be a season where he plays more.

I reduced fletchers tally as i think he and Akpom are the two who will rotate more to partner britt

I agree it’s not too much to ask. Just thought it was funny to put into perspective how *** we were last season again 😂

Assuming we stick with 5-3-2, which is absolutely inivtable - I wonder if it's Warnock's intention to play 2 'creative' midfielders behind the 2 strikers, with Morsy as the pivot. As oppose to Morsey being 1 of 2 primarily defensive CMs and a #10 making up the 3.

Tav, Browne, new AM - and, very much a push to call either traditionally creative, but also Wing and Saville - making up a 5 competing for 2 'creative' spots. With Howson very much the utility man to plug gaps / Morsy's back-up, as oppose to start.

I could get behind that more than 2 out-n-out defensive CMs in this system.

Don't think we have to stick with 532 to be honest 

523 {343} is also an option with what we have.

I also agree. A reasonable expectation.

The PAOK fan who posted said not really, but did big up other areas of his game. Sounds like he's less of a target man and a more rounded player than many were expecting.

I’m looking forward to seeing akpom, sounds like he will add something we haven’t had in the team for years. He will sit deeper and allow Britt to move further up and play his more natural game. When I first seen we had bid for akpom I admit I was surprised but now I’ve looked closer it makes sense.

For those of you who have not seen this lad play, I think you are going to be pleasantly surprised. A really good signing at a reasonable price, now let’s work on changing our plodding midfield to give our strikers a chance

He'll suffer from a lot of neck injuries in that case as he watches the ball sailing over his head over and over again.

Hopefully we can get a playmaker from Europe. 

24 hours later, somewhere in Rockliffe, Neil Bausor arrives looking rather pleased with himself.

I imagine he will be the target of the long balls so maybe more head injuries than neck.

Are we actually a long ball side though? 9th highest in the league according to who scored, less than Birmingham and Karanka ball

9th for Long passes but 20th for short passes. 14th for average possession and 5th for aerial duels won. I'd say those metrics probably point to us being a long ball team.
