I have loved everything about the way the club has flourished under the fantastic new owners. The one thing missing for me is a statement centre forward signing. It would be the final piece of the GTFC transformation. No loan signing, an actual we identified this striker and paid the money required signing. Without it we will struggle this season. Come on Jason, Andrew and Paul, you know it makes sense…….

In fairness to Hurst, he does have a good track record in signing strikers for us- Hearn, Hannah, Cook, Bogle, Amond, McAtee etc suggests he can find them.

We might be frustrated in having to wait, but I’m sure someone will materialise in due course.

Evening, if it’s that obvious why we still dicking around? The fans have done their bit, record season ticket sales and sold out shirts. Time for some cash to be splashed on a striker.

I guess patience is a virtue but I’m inclined to think that the supporters have done their bit. Time for a few signings that match the commitment of the fans.

Yeah the fans deserve something back after the disappointment of last season.

If it was so easy to come by these amazing strikers, then every team would have one. Patience.

For the millionth time, there is a shortage of strikers in world football at the moment.

The prevalence of false nines and inverted wide players has meant there are a lack of centre forwards in youth football.

That’s filtered all the way down to our level.

I do agree as I have argued on the Dallas rumour thread. At this level we are not talking about life-changing sums of money really, are we? We have been waiting a long time for a marquee signing of a striker and with the money the fans have shelled out last season and this, I personally don't think it is too much to ask to get a recognised striker who is in demand and will therefore cost money in a transfer fee and/or wages.

I think Hurst is like me - he likes a bargain and the challenge that goes into finding it - but an in-demand striker would be nice all the same.

What is it with everyone tonight? Football returns to BP on Saturday and many of you will be there.

Nearly 6000 season tickets, we've retained all but one of those Hurst wanted to keep, just banked some money for our best asset in McAtee but managed to keep him here for the season too and Hurst is patiently biding his time for a striker.

That same patience saw Andy Smith walk through the door at the other end of the pitch last week too...
