Hugill is atrocious, all he does is fall over, he was useless when he played for us, why would you want him back?

I did not like him one bit when he was here BUT under pulis he was extrmeely isolated on his own. And In his defence he then went to have a very good season at QPR where he had runners in and around him. Which is what most target men need.

The fact remains when Hugill plays regularly at this level (and you have bodies around him like you should and not play a 8.1.1 formation with him) then his record suggests he does well. Preston and QPR show that. He back up at Norwich to Pukki so wont judge him on that.

Great quote from Kevin Blackwell in the Athletic today 🤣🤣🤣

I can't imagine that game getting approved by Hasbro...

It's my birthday today, meant to be my 30th but I've refused to allow that in current circumstances of not being able to celebrate it. I usually get my age on the back of one of my shirts so I re

I would definitely have Hugill back next season if Warnock remains in charge. He was very harshly treated his time here as others have mentioned he was just as isolated as Negredo was.
 

Target men ALWAYS need runners off them. His link up play was good, he’s strong, can head and still scored a reasonable amount of goals considering how we played as a team.

Hugill is barely playing for Norwich because he keeps getting injured.

He had an excellent season for QPR, that ended with injury against us.

I would absolutely take him back if he could stay fit.

Warnock plays one up front so I can’t see him being the solution here.

True but unlike Pulis, Warnock would have runners and support in and around a target man in likes of Watmore and Tav along with people he would look to sign in mould of Kebano, Mendez and Bolasise etc

I still wouldn’t be happy with that signing, what is this obsession fans have with ex players, do they not watch any other football teams?

I dont want him here. He was a name i suggested in case we dont get other targets. Rather Hugill than no target man at all was my point

My ideal signing up top would be lad from Bristol but I feel he will get offered bigger wages elsewhere.

I’d rather we changed our style of play than signed a big target man to hoof the ball to.

Hugill and Smithies, really?

REALLY?

Okay I suppose Smithies would be an upgrade on Bettinelli but anyone who wants Hugill back here needs their head examining.

At least you changed your mind on Smithies within 2 sentences.

He got 13 goals and 1 assist and that was the best season in his career.  Assombalonga has bettered that twice with us, and twice with Forest, and still isn't good enough.  When they were both on the same team, one got 6 goals, including I think 2 or 3 penalties, and one got 14 goals, not sure how many were penalties.  There's quite a big difference between a player who is a waste of space as far as some people are concerned and a player who apparently does well at this level.

He scored 6 goals mate, there was nothing reasonable about it.  He wasn't even good enough to be considered bang average when he was here.  Yeah, Pulis has to take some of the blame for it, but Assombalonga got 14 goals that season, and you wouldn't think of him as ideal for that kind of football either.

So here is one for our fans...

If i said there a 28yr old striker in league 1 with 23 goals this season, who plays as a target man and is a free transfer this summer i assume most would say “he definitely worth taking a look at”.

However, if i then say that striker is our ex academy striker Charle Wyke who plays for Sunderland he suddenly becomes a less attractive proposition.

So my question is this. Is Wyke worth a punt on a free?

I'd say absolutely.

Hopefully after a failed attempt at promotion from Sunderland.

But I think he's destined to sign a new contract whatever happens, it's not like they're short of money now.

    • Keeping the same opposition would be more important than keeping the same team.
    • Totally agree, just want the lad to explore his options a bit more and to a degree Ikpeazu needs to do the same as he could have had further assists Saturday
    • I wouldn't even change the current team. Its working so far 
    • Not convinced Fry comes straight back into the team. Bamba and NcNair are playing well.  Fry, Bola and Djik need to stay fit and then find form before they get back into the team.
    • I'd be looking at ------Lumley-------- Dijksteel-Fry-Bamba-Bola -Crooks-Payero-McNair- Tav------Sporar-------Onel/Jones Perhaps a bit harsh on Howson but Dijksteel is a better right back than him and I want players in their natural positions. Onel has proven so much in the Championship, but Jones is our own and looks so exciting. 50/50 between them. But we're never going to have everyone fit at the same time anyway, so there is going to be plenty of games for everyone. Lea Siliki has one hell of a job on his hands though. Cameroon international with plenty of experience from the top french league and also from the Champions League. At the moment he is probably 6th choice in midfield if everyone is fit, and I can't see Warnock dropping Crooks, McNair or Howson for him and Payero looks like a different player who plays further forward. Probably not the situation Siliki envisaged when he signed.
