Completely baseless wish here but if we're looking for a 3rd choice striker I'd love us to look at Tomáš Necid.

Experienced striker who has scored goals across Europe, scored 6 goals for Pardew's dreadful ADO Den Haag last season. He's 6 ft 3 and strong as hell so a bit different to what we have, he's currently a free agent and I can't imagine his wage demands will be massive. I follow Czech football and Czech players and I think he could be good for us, was touted as a big prospect early on his career but suffered two cruciate injuries.

You’re giving away your age now @AnglianRed 😂😂😂

Not necessarily - though I'm happy to admit I was an 80s kid (some great music from that decade). But I also like Pink Floyd and other stuff from the 70s.

Musical taste isn't always an indicator of age. I see lots of comments from kids on Youtube, saying they much prefer music from the 80s and 90s.

(although they could just be old people lying about their age)

I haven't seen much of Adam Armstrong but his stats look very good - scored 16 and assisted 6 in 40(6) games last season - 14 as a forward, 9 on the right wing, 7 on the left and a couple in the number 10 role. Great numbers for someone shifted around so much. Surely would command a decent fee though?

Hes quality. You are right though, unless Blackburn are desperate he will cost a fortune.

He sounds ideal for 433

Not entirely sure if Adam Armstrong would be offering us something we don't already have. If we got Britt off the books, maybe. Maybe he'd be better than Britt but I don't think they're different enough to have both and he'd likely demand decent wages too.

Interesting that we seem to be in for a defensive midfielder in Amos one who probably will cost us near 7 figures out of the budget, we do need a genuine holding midfielder because right now we don't have a natural one at all.

I saw Newcastle were linked with Armstrong for 16 million. Not sure where this has come from?

Funnily enough I was sat next to Adam Armstrong getting my hair cut yesterday. He mentioned how much he was loving it at Blackburn and that’s he’s happy Mogga is now playing him central so I don’t think there’ll be anything in that. 
 

For anyone interested he also mentioned that he thought Danny Graham would probably go back to Sunderland.

I didn’t realise Danny Graham was such a legend to Blackburn fans, happy for the man

They sold him for £1.75m so I doubt it's this one 😄 Maybe you're talking about Stuart Armstrong, the former Celtic player who's now at Southampton?

He can play anywhere across the front 3 I guess... But I doubt he’d come here to  primarily play as a winger and I agree he’s not that different to what we already have - is definitely quicker though!

    • It's a shame there's no sign of someone coming in before Rotherham. Warnock seemed confident of that and keen for it to happen. For me, being the 7th best team in the league this season is OK based on the last few seasons. It's a shame if we cannot push on this season but once again more high wages will be gone in the summer.  I hope either Warnock stays or Gibson goes for someone like Paul Cook. He's done great with teams so far and I would be happy to trust him with this squad and any cash Gibson can give him. I do think if we don't go up the likes of Paddy, Fry, Tav and Dijksteel may attract interest. I wonder if we sold one we could keep hold of the others. Hopefully we don't have to sell them all.  Next season even more of the kids could be ready which is quite exciting really. Especially as we may actually get to see them in person. Fingers crossed for this week and the rest of the season. Hopefully Gibson can work out how to splash a bit of cash.
    • Speaking last week with my mate who gave me the Watmore info he said that Boro are looking to do 3 in 3 out. Britt, Roberts and Wood were the three out  (Wood on loan). other than maybe Wood I don’t think much will have changed.  
    • I genuinely hope you are right and that I am wrong. He originally had a hamstring injury after 4 games for us and just as he was getting close to returning he then suffered a front thigh injury in training which I think required surgery putting him out for at least an additional 10 to 12 weeks which would put his return at around mid to late Feb if his rehab goes to plan. Added to his previous serious long lay off before coming here and it doesn't fill me with optimism. Like I said I hope you are right and my pessimism is without foundation.
    • I think we would need to see a departure or two for any signs of incomings but you never know
    • Quite simply a must win game with due respect to Rotherham not getting 3 points against them will put a stop to any real hope of progress towards top 6plus we need to stop the home form rot
