Official: We already have 4 Forwards

So probably only looking for 1 more striker. Unlikely 2?

Except Ayite is a winger and Aluko has been playing a 10 role

said this the other day. the offal moves players around to fill up gaps. dempsey and ruiz used to go back and fourth from midfiled to forward depending on numbers. kavangh was still down as a midfielder this season aswell. read nothing into it.

Ayite and ALuko have been shown as "Forward" since they signed, but they are not strikers, that is what is missing from our forward players.

I'd count Aluko as a forward, Ross played in No 10..you wouldn't not call him a forward would you?

Agree MJG I would call ALuko a forward as I would Ayite but not strikers. They are wide forward players, and Aluko now seems to be playing in the ten role, so listing them as forwards works for me

But then I would not count Ayite as a forward and would list him in Midfield.
Anyway we all get a bit too hung up on these things. Players should be adaptable and its good that they can play in a number of positions.

I agree with you we do get hung up, fro me Ayite is wide in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 thats why I say a forward for him. But in reality doesnt matter.

Still need a striker or two, RHodes rumours surfacing

If they wanted, they could add Odoi and Carney to that list....still doesn't mean they're strikers

With the quality and numbers of players that have come in. I'd say it looks as if the Club and it's owner are making a real effort to transform the team. We're only seeing the signings and have no real idea who we've approach but have been unsuccessful in getting.
I'd far rather we stick to the Chairman's plan of being a sustainable club than breach fp and seesaw like previous seasons.
Jok will have to work with what's available and nag the board come January. When was the last time we had a good start to a season and weren't knocked out of the cup by now?

The hard facts are that we have made numerous signings but the main striker/target man role has been shared between only Smith and Woodrow who have done a job and are both real hard workers and good players but not quite up to what is needed to keep us in a top six position.
We need a new striker but of course strikers who are better than the two we already have are going to cost big money , especially when all likely selling clubs are aware of our needs.

I only understand outside-right, inside-right, centre-forward, inside-left and outside-left.

Maybe Ross would like to come back now that the team is looking decent/  He is a striker isnt he?

He scores goals but he is not a striker in the sense we need: someone to get on the end of crosses and through balls.

Do you think we need another striker if we get Martin? I think Martin will be enough if we keep playing 4-2-3-1 with Smith and Woodrow as backups.
