Wonder if that last part means we are waiting for a striker to sign before letting him go.

That was how I read it too.

Would make sense as Akpom is our 2nd choice of 2..

Would love to watch Payero’s cameo for Argentina, does anyone know of any websites that might have a replay of the game?

He barely touched the ball to be fair. Argentina were awful. He had a few free kicks and corners which weren’t great. He had a very good run and then he made a smart pass leading to a shot on target. He also made a good cross field pass. No idea where you would find highlights unfortunately

Will probably be highlights on YouTube later of the game as to be honest he was the only one to make highlights for Argentina. But on Sunday he should hopefully pay full game

Maybe we will try get smith from Rotherham?

I wonder if we've moved on from Smith by buying Crooks. I wouldn't be shocked to see Crooks playing up front this season on occasion and maybe we think he's better value for the kind of money they're after.

I think Smith was an alternative to Ikpeazu rather than someone we'd look to sign too. I think (hope) that any other striker signings are a bit different. Easier said than done, but maybe more of a poacher.

I think Warnock will want at least one like for like striker. If there are injuries or loss of form it’s just a change of player rather than a complete change. 

however an alternative would be nice as well.

"BEŞİKTAŞ is about to finish the forward transfer. Tired of Diego Costa's constant distraction, the management decided on Chuba Akpom from Middlesbrough. The black-and-whites reached an agreement in principle with the 25-year-old Nigerian forward they contacted. Aiming to shine its star in the Champions League, Akpom also wants to leave the Championship team and work in Kartal. The English team will take a striker and let his player leave." 

His goal against Tavistock convinced them off his quality.

It was up in the air after the previous two games.

That's what I was thinking. If Ikpeazu gets injured, one of the last things Warnock will want is no suitable player to step in.

Having said that though, that's one of the reasons why I think Crooks might be that guy rather than Smith. Gives us an option elsewhere on the pitch too but can cover for Ikpeazu if he's out for any reason.

I hope we get muniz as the other striker even though it will require a complex financial package of a loan fee and permant fee upon promotion

Crooks will not have been bought as a striker. Just because he is tall doesn't mean he will be playing up front.

    • The administrators must be worried about HMRC. They supposedly owe them £26m.
    • I presume the continued legal action is to ensure that 9-12 point deduction that they are due for breaching P&S is actually carried out. It's all gone quiet since they went in to administration.
    • Well they're currently on -2 points. Another 9 point deduction would make that -11, which is currently 18 points from safety. That would be a serious amount of ground to make up and would require 3 teams above them to have pretty horrendous seasons, in order to overhaul them. I'd rather see Mel Morris get taken for every penny he's got, or otherwise punished to the full extent of the law. Instead he's wringing his hands and saying he's "sorry" while the club that was under his stewardship could end up going to the wall, if the administrators can't find a suitable buyer.  
    • Does Gibson seriously holding a grudge for them outbidding us on Waghorn 😂
    • They haven't actually been punished for cheating yet, which is the whole point of principle for Gibson. They've had a self-inflicted 12 point deduction for administration. They're currently only 9 points from safety, that is far from insurmountable with most of the season left, and the pressure needs to be kept up to ensure they get the punishment they're due.
