Speculation: We need a striker and here are the rumours

Well, I don’t suppose there would be any surprise if I was to say we need another striker to help us out during our current deficit.
But I can’t say I’m convinced by any of the rumoured targets.

I hate this speculation, as it’s invariably utter rubbish, but at the same time, I know some of you love it.
So, here we go;

First we have Jack Marriott

Ok, he’s scored 17 in 30, but this is in league one.
That’s a yawn count of 4.7 out of 5 for me, especially if you consider Bruce is looking to get someone in on a loan, with hopefully a bit better pedigree/proven experience.

Then there’s Leonardo Ulloa,
who’d be much more like it, in that he’s proven and has been there and done it.

He’d want a big pay off though and surely we couldn’t afford him, even on a loan?

He sounds just the ticket and is in my opinion, very realistic.
We always manage to pay more than it seems we can afford, after all.

Yawn factor? Er, there isn’t one, as he’d be a great signing, if only as another indicator of our intent.
He’s experienced and about the sort Bruce wants.

Next there’s Christian Benteke and that really is a yawn factor of 5 out of 5.
Why on earth would he come back to us and possibly ruin his reputation?

With that, I’m bored now and I’ll leave you to it, to comment and add any others that I can’t be bothered to read about.

I can’t see past Ulloa, as he’s exactly the sort Bruce would go for.
But let’s see, eh?

    Knowing how highly Bruce thinks of Gabby I wouldn’t be surprised if he is given a new contract instead of anyone new coming in!!

    A new link. Apparently we’re one of three teams in for Liverpool midfielder, Grujic. Along with Brighton and Galatasaray. I’d say we’re probably the least likely to get him of the three.

    Imo, and only mine, i think all these media crap is just guess work, anyone with sense would secretly look abroad for up and coming players, there will be a lot of players at the end of there days looking for some idiot to take them on, we have learn’t a lesson over the years by having someone’s shite , you can bet we already know who’s coming , in a few weeks we will be told.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
