Don't read too much into the top bit. I'm not saying I expect to sign two strikers that are going to cost a total of 20million. I just feel the attribute, stats and potential we need to be focusing on most when considering strikers is their ability to score.

I'd be happy with Tammy Abraham on loan and Gary Hooper for 5/6 million.

Fancy giving up driving the bus, danny?

Aluko is a problem.  He's quick, skilful and is very hard to man mark.  On the other hand his shooting is woeful, his distribution variable at best and his heading non existent.  If the team is going to play without a recognised striker then to have one of the front men who rarely scores is a liability.  He came from Hull on a free.  That sums up how Fulham have slipped since Hamburg.

My mistake re Kodjia but even if it was the French lower leagues, at least he was scoring somewhere. Zohore's record is terrible.

Also think it's misleading to look at Zohore's goals/game ratio this season. My understanding is the reason he hasn't played a full 46 games is just that he was too cr@p to get Cardiff's team before Christmas. So for me the material thing is just the goals scored number which is poor.

As for Aluko, great player with the ball at his feet but I cannot understand for the life of me why he ever shoots unless it's the most simple tap in. Surely Joka and the rest of the team have told him not to bother. I would genuinely back Ream or Button to put away more chances than Aluko.

That would be great business in my opinion, and not too expensive.
