    Do we need a new striker?

    Post by paulstreet on Tue Oct 04, 2016 10:20 am

    With Knowles out for quite a while (broken foot), and Robertson seeming to have vanished into thin air (he wasn't that good anyway!), we are down to just JPP and Chib. Surely we need to strengthen if we intend to stay in the promotion hunt? Notice that Fylde snapped up Bradley (?) from Alfreton, so they aren't messing about. Maybe a loan?

    Personally I feel we do need another striker but only on loan for a few months while we're down to only two forwards. Pittman has being brilliant for us so far this season and is on fire literally banging the goals in! Chib just needs to keep getting games and the goals will come for him. Just a young lad on loan from a league club could be a good idea for the time being as backup to them two.

    I wonder what Jerry Yates is up to?

    Do you think league clubs would be reluctant to let their players come to us on loan due to the 3g pitch?

    I believe Lewis Walters (ex. Leeds) is still a free agent. Plus we have Reaks and Day still who could fill the void.

    Cancel the Walters thought. He has since signed for Nottingham Forest.

    Not sure we will get anyone in as Gascoigne is back with a bang and all the time we can keep servicing JP he'll put them away. Still think we need that bit more to get us over the line in a couple of areas but would be down to who's available mid season?

    100% ..Yes.At this moment in time without JPP we really are struggling .OK Gazza scored a great goal tonight.. .yet looking at his all round game, he seems to get caught out time and time again adapting to the pace of the game?
    With Dom out long term and Robertson ..awol or injured ..Chib IMO .. looking big .strong and the real deal ,yet for what ever reason fails to deliver every time he enters the pitch.
    Going to be hard to bring in a quality striker at this time of year ..but if we are to progress ,SW as to bring in a quality striker , be it a loan ?..but a must if we are to kick on.
    Well played tonight. by the way .
