The key to success for us next term is being able to pick up some decent strikers. Something that we have struggled with since the sale of Bogle.
In the last 7/8 years alone we have had Hannah, Hearn, Bogle, Amond, John-Lewis, Palmer, Pitman, Dyson and Andy Cook.
All of which would fit into our team now (in their prime).
I just hope our budget constraints isnt stopping us from making some decent additions up top.

Dyson?!

He'd absolutely clean up in this division, to be fair.

He is on loan at Stevenage from Plymouth and has made a total of 2 appearances (no goals) for either club this season. Since signing for Stevenage he has not been in the first team squad, Plymouth fans are not surprised.

He plays in Malaysia now. Doubt he'd come back here.

i think MJ will be able to use most of the budget given for next season on attack minded players due to the fact that most of our defenders are already contracted and we're bulking the squad up by giving youths pro deals.

Of that list Bogle, Amond and Hearn would dot the business at this level. Hannah was a conference striker at best, same goes for Pittman, Cook has come on leaps and bounds but was a good (but not great) non league player when he played for us. Both Shop and Palmer are good players but neither of them are goal scorers(certainly not at this level), it's probably the same for Dyson.

To be fair, Palmer has scored a decent amount this season at this level (14, same as Amond).

I always felt Cook had it in him to do well the older he got

He was only 21 when we got him and left us at 23... with the experience he's had the past 5 years, I'm sure he could easily hold down a place in to our team now

I was only talking about him at the match the other day, comparing him with both Thomas and Dennis, who to my mind will score if the ball is presented to them, whereas Cook would go looking for the ball and create and take chances by himself

Not sure that if Walsall go down he'll come down with them because with a return of 1 goal every 3 games, some other club at League 1 level might well be interested in him

Btw disagree a little about Palmer.....14 goals in 38 appearances this season for Crawley isn't that bad a return for a front man
