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!

    • Agree with Sandy..  we are inconsistent but some of that is relative inexperience and hopefully that will decrease. Hopefully we can get a few more U23's out on loan to push them on a bit and fill the squad up for next year..  we have the makings of a good team and if we can get the final pieces of the jigsaw, then we will be there or thereabouts . Would also like to mention that discipline seems to have improved significantly, halfway through season and only one red card, which was rightly overturned and most of the yellows were for "proper" fouls rather than dissent or other daft stuff..  Sam will always be Sam but having watched Souness, Kennedy, Glover, Hammy, Boam and other nasty boys, he is very mild compared to them and I think all good teams have someone like him, so I think it should be acknowledged he is the best Egyptian we've had   
    • Think they are nailed on to stay up now that they have fewer injuries...  Ol Gravel Voice might be a walking sphincter but he gets the best out of his players (except against City). wouldn't be surprised if current bottom 3 went down, but if anyone else gets dragged in, most likely Brighton or Barcodes
    • Burnley have 19 points from just 10 scored goals. That’s some achievement. 10 more goals and they’ll probably avoid relegation. 
    • Good opening post I hope to see your thread again for Rotherham 🙂 1:Team and formation?  Exactly same side as he started at Nottingham Forrest as believe its best side we have baring Fletcher.  2: Is it good to change a winning team?  Nope it isn't unless player is really knackered  3: Will Morsy get another yellow card for just being Morsy?  Yeah he will  4: Can Britt follow up on an above par performance?  I think/hope as his contract is up we may see the best of Britt as he sure will wanna try earn biggest deal he can in the summer and we are his stage for showtime  5: Is Saville finally going to be what we bought him for.. A goal contributer? 4 goals and 4 assists so far... With Morsey it enables him to burst in the box with great effect so defiently be more of a goal scoring contribution from him  6: Iron Maiden or Def Leppard?  Iron Maiden 7: Our last handful of games this season are easy on paper .. If we keep within reach of the play off spots .. Can we push for it in the last 8-10 games? Yeah it's just our strength in depth see at LB dropping from Bola to Coulson is downgrade then at RB Dijksteel provides defensive steal remove him for Spence we are a lot worse defensively. Then in Midfield losing someone so Wing is required is downgrade. The reason Norwich are where they are is due to having two quality players in every position really.  8: Who is this mystery signing (winger who can play as a striker)?  It has got to be Grosicki don't think any other fit the words Warnock said.
