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!

    • How anyone can watch those ŕeplays and claim its a definate penalty is beyond everybody else. It was not a foul.
    • What I will say is I wish we played like we did in the 2nd half all the time because we'd be a far better team. Ball on the floor and use the technical players we have to create spaces and opportunities. Not long ball after long ball to 6ft and under forwards up against giant centre halves!  For me the play offs is a tall order now unless we go on a great run, which with our inconsistency so far this season looks unlikely. However, next season if we can retain the likes of Bolasie, Kebano, NML and add a quality goalkeeper and striker I think we'll have a great chance. 
    • Well... What a ****heap of a day... I don't get to follow much in Lockdown as I spend 7.5 hours online tutoring on saturdays - but having watched back? Jesus Christ. Our play-off hopes are diminishing. If we don't make it, I'll be rooting for Barnsley. The turnaround under Ismaël is nothing short of incredible. They're also the only other viable northern club in contention...
    • Surprised by Quest as last week they were talking about how abuse of refs isn't right. But they has to be something done want some sort of VAR  in the championship as is very much a big spotlight on it. If a ref makes a blunder it can hinder their career like the Blackburn ref he hasn't had a game since.  I don't want VAR to rule of finger nail offsides but if they could see these game defining incidents would be alot less controversy and loss in reputation for the refs. As that ref must be feeling very anxious his decisions been shared all across social media right around the world. If was VAR the spotlight wouldn't be on him he wouldn't be receiving the abuse. Its needed to protect the refs really otherwise spirals out control.  In league 1 or 2 isn't the same like spotlight on it doesn't matter as much.
