I agree with Denni. We are ok up top. Jones and Yuseff to start up front with Asante to come back from injury plus Veron. I would rather see us spend money on a decent LB plus a younger CB who could learn from Collins and Clarke ready for the following season. If we are to get another striker it should be a loan signing from a Prem or Championship club.

Could Veron still do it though? Think he's 42 now...

I wouldn't expect Wooton to be a first choice. Clubs at our level need to take a punt on youngsters, with the hope that the will come good, score a few goals and be sold on. One eye on the future is the way forward, otherwise you end up stagnating with has beens and getting relegated to non league.

Can't see how he is worth 6 figures mind but i doubt a tribunal would agree with that anyway.

I was impressed with Robinson when he came on against Barnsley. Looked as if he had all the above attributes and has scored 2 in 2...

Agree with above. Think if we sign Cardwell and Robinson we have everything we need up top.

Also sign up Dixon and that should be us set.

I'm not sure the striker issue is quite has huge as people are suggesting. Jones scored 7 in 16 at the end of last season in an utterly incoherent side with various partners and was unfit when he first arrived. There's every reason to suggest that after a full league pre-season and half a season of getting used to the opposition and his teammates that he can score 25 goals in this league. The issue last year was the complete lack of service to the strikers. Osborne and Comley out wide, so no width, Slade appears to have addressed this issue. I think a more varied approach play will cause chaos for defenders in this league. I think that Vernon would be an ideal partner. He's clever and can hold it up well.

More words and less meaning, communication disappearing.

Silence is not sacrifice.

£100,000 on a striker with a very average goals return added to a high wage request - I'm out !!!

Sure we would find a better deal from one of the numerous U23 team lists, or look at the Nike Academy again for another gem ??

In regards to Robinson and Cardwell, if they score any amount of tap ins, then the team have got the football in the right area for a clean, simple finish.

Too many strikers can be marked out of the game by a solid defender - can't they, Mr Shearer - how's the scar, these days? - Amond scored against poorer teams but hardly any with better defenders in the top teams.

Variety in attacking play, hopefully at a faster pace than last year, should give several players in the squad the chance to get to double figure goal tallies. Love to see 3 in the top scoring list rather than just 1 at the top.

What I definitely want to see this season is a more solid defense not letting in stupid goals from lack of communication or poor marking at set pieces.

Not sure Shearer is a good example of a striker who was easily marked. He's the all time Premier League top scorer and did actually score against us the night Whittle whacked him.

Yes, Shearer is a national legend, and yes, he did score that night, but he moaned for ages afterwards in the press and in tv interviews in regards to the treatment he received and the physicality he took from Whittle.

No disrespect to Whittle either as he had to use whatever tactics he could to try to stop Shearer from scoring.

With Shearer's proven ability against international and Premiership class defenders, then only one goal could be regarded as a semi triumph !

I was trying to use an analogy of Amond having easy games against lower teams in that season but not scoring against many of the higher teams where centre halves were better quality.

Cardwell has signed for the Town according to Facebook just now.

No attempt at ethical or social seduction can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred of the Tory party. So far as I'm concerned they're lower than vermin. Aneurin Bevan.
