Any news on a new striker. The manager says it's going to be 'our time's. To win matches we need to score goals. It's a simple formula. Our strikers do not cut it at the top level. Sorry Troy respect but.
Desperately need new striker and also in time to train preseason

Trouble is we don't really know who will end up leaving us, so that will impact who we buy. Possible leavers were Douc, Riccie, Okaka, and Janmaat, plus possibly Deeney. Despite all the rumours it looks 60/40 that Douc and Riccie might stay but all these rumours on new players have to be ignored for now. The only thing I will stick my neck out on is Okaka to leave and a new striker to join us..?

Rumour that Jack Rodwell is training with us ..

Well he is injury prone and a midfielder so fits in perfectly!

Looks like Rodwell might sign ?

Maybe should be a pay as you play deal - home grown cover for Hughes , Chalobah and Cleverly ?

Didn't he refuse to play because of his 'fragile mental state'? (allegedly)
Not fragile enough to pick up £73k a week of course.

Or Lamp Post 2.0?

The interwebs are speculating it's mostly agents using EPL clubs with striker needs to drive up interest. Honestly, we have big slower strikers that can sit in the box. If we're going to get one we need some with more pace and who can do things like chase down lost causes, etc..

I assume there is no info out there on any of our players that did not travel to Austria? Surely we didn't take 30 odd players....

I would. Allows for injuries and 11-a-side training. Most importantly, let's them compete. Best thing we got out of Silva before he turned traitor was the competition for every spot.

Quite a few key players didn't play in the friendly on Tuesday.

Another goalie?

I suppose if Gomes goes we might want another experienced one as cover to the youngster from Sweden go out on loan.

There just crickets from the club on these and the Wobby has no real insight. It seems to be 95% agents trying to drum up interest and journos needing to fill space.

I was surprised that we put out a very defense heavy midfield for the second half on Tuesday, with a few key players missing. My guess is that Cleverly and Challobah are nailed on first 15 and so Gracia is mainly using these 2 friendlies to look at some of the others to gauge their abilities and attitude in advance of the cull which will surely happen in 2 weeks?

I think this is spot on. It was interesting who he shoved forward into holding mid roles in the 2nd half. Clearly looked like he was trying to sort out who might be able to be calm on the ball and pick out a pass under pressure. It's be easy to play a whole game and not see that as a centre half.... so shove them into midfield.

Well the recent noise about us wanting De Souza and then Doucs not appearing yesterday makes you wonder if we are in fact cashing-in on both Riccie and Douc ? If they both leave for at least £70m combined, then I guess that suits the Pozzos B/plan - just hope we have time to bring in a top midfielder and a striker in the next 2 weeks ...

Richarlison gone for between £35 and £50 million depending on who you believe !

Time to reinvest in some good strikers.

I am still completely confused about who else might join us and which positions tbh ? On You Tube the new guy Sema looks like a Richarlison on steroids and all we need up front is a class striker, but then if Success gets his a**e into gear this season he could do a job. I have to assume we WILL now get a new striker in, but the elephant in the room is whether Douc stays or leaves ? We also don't know if Kaboul will be pushed out or if our 2 dozen current CBs are deemed good enough for this season based on the 2 classy looking new FBs now supporting them ??? Surely this week we will start to see some movement now the £30/40/50m is in the bank ... ?

Hoban gone out on loan to Aberdeen and Sinclair might be going to Sunderland so might be making room for some new guys .

Interesting - wonder if this is true?

https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football ... -survival/

Suspect the club would take the offer as it could help fund a new striker or two we badly need.

Thing is haven't we already said he can leave for 10m, so why would Cardiff offer 15m? If there is some truth in it I guess it will be all about whether TD fancies the challenge and if they offer him a juicy enough 3 year contract... I can't really see it happening tbh.
