Agree that Britt is natural finisher.....but how many goals does he cost us by not being willing to assist ,,,,a 10 goal a season guy who is willing to set up his strike partner could be just as effective....but it is what it is

he is only a natural finisher from the 6 yard box. First season he only scored 4 goals in open play that were not 6 yard tap ins, it was a couple more the following season, but still not exactly prolific.  Of course it's a skill to find the space to finish there, but if you need to be there to score, then you can can't get involved in the high press, because it often means you need to press the fullbacks. You can't be out wide pressing AND in the box for your 3 yard tap in.

Kike scored 13 goals in 2 years and Stuani scored 7 goals in his championship season (albeit misused on the wing)

Yet they both played in a team that got promoted.

I still think 15 million is an acceptable price 

No sorry it’s impossible to be happy with a price below Webster’s now. He’s already better and 3 years younger. There’s no excuse selling him for less in my opinion

Depends on the add ons, if Fry went to Leicester them we'd have far more chance of getting the add on activated.

    • We need a lot of those things but the thing we need the most is a new approach and intent. We won't get promoted from this league playing percentage football, hoping that luck falls on our side every game. 
    • I'm surprised to see May miss out of the squad I feel even when not on form he is still capable of producing something.  Sexton is another big omission although that one is more understandable given Russell's form right now. On that note it was refreshing to see the form player getting selected. But I did think leadership and experience might have edged Sexton in. It will be interesting to see how Simmonds does having continually being left out by Jones for England despite arguably being the best forward in the country right now.
    • with fry playing we never seem to get done in behind the defense. without him it seems nearly every game. dijksteel and tavs work rate and energy on the right side. they dominated every team we played on that side. we missed one of them but once both were out team never looked the same. next season if we keep bolasie and he is linking with tav and has dijksteel over lapping all the space those two will create i'm sure he would be thriving. we get the correct forward in with him and i'm positive for next season. easier said than done though. we need a keeper who is competent in shot stopping and commanding his area.  
    • Starting with the backs, no massive surprises in terms of who has been selected, barring Aki and Daly. But Daly can cover nearly every backline position, so it makes some sense in taking him, then it makes sense Aki is going as he fills a Tuliagi/Roberts shaped hole of previous tours. The biggest surprise in the backs for me is not having at least one or two of J.Davies, Slade or Ringrose. The forwards is where there are some big omissions; James Ryan, Billy V, CJ Stander or Underhill plus a very distinct lack of English props. Lawes being included despite his injury is a strange one, then Conan and Hill are two big surprises for me too. Sam Simmonds being involved is not a shock at all for me. I do not envy the selectors at all!
    • @Youngy228 I'm up for it if it's ok and there is still room.
