I haven’t said I was

but I’m also not acting like a toddler who has been told they can’t have any sweets and is throwing a tantrum 

we could win the next 20 games in a row 1-0 you don’t know you can’t predict it,

im sure you predicted relegation last season when flint Bryan and Reid were sold and acting like you are now then

You’re so right I know and yes I’m a petulant child throwing my toys out the pram..

It’s why I was bald at 26 😬

FAILED????? Jeez,  there is absolutely no law in this land that states a player (or a number of targeted players) our management team are interested in recruiting for BCFC MUST complete the deal and sign on for us.  

One of my international Clients called me last week begging me to cover a senior job for them in Grimsby for 3 months whilst they recruit a permanent solution.  Money was really good and I really am the best bloke for their project……….but I told them to do one.

My Client hasn't failed……I knocked them back and they couldn't do anything to change my mind.  Grimsby????  Naaah.        💩     👀     ✋

Congratulations Mr. Big shot.

We have needed a striker for the last 2 or 3 windows so if we don’t get one then they have failed to address the issue. We can all see it, even the management have said it within the last week.

Without a 20+ goal scorer to go along side our existing strike force, we have no chance of getting promotion. You only have to look at the likes of Wolves, Sheffield United, Villa and even Leeds and Derby, they all had this vital ingredient that we are missing. I said before we should not have put all our eggs in one basket with this Arsenal lad and now the best we can hope for are the second rate strikers that are left, all our other targets have been transferred to other clubs.

Think you are a tat premature, this can be a problem

We are a relatively small club in this league, big names are going to choose bigger clubs because a) they are seen as a better move and b) likely able to pay much more

were moving towards being more self sufficient and in time can afford bigger fees and wages but until then we are never going to be front of the queue for the biggest names.

that leaves us with two options, as breaking the bank isn’t a viable solution the only alternative is looking at lower league players/overseas players or otherwise lesser “known” players and taking a bit of a gamble.

Agree with all of this. Perhaps EN was too high quality then? Presumably there is something of a compromise out there? May be we just blood Semanyo and see what happens but given him proper game time.

I agree - I'm 100% with you on the need for someone to come in.  I just don't think the club have 'failed'.  If it's a case of not paying as much money as others for FFP reasons, or not being seen as an attractive 'Big Club' in the eyes of a target, nothing will drag an unwilling striker here (unless he's after a final tasty contract).  

Not having a pop at you personally, much like you're not having a go at me just coz I'm filthy rich and extremely talented!  However, I wouldn't get out of bed for the paltry amount the club are likely to offer me to go up front for them.

 

Love you xx

Gimme the money received from the Kelly and Webster transfers and I’ll bugger off oop Norf on me Vespa and I’ll come back with Dwight Gayle and Barry Bannan on the back. Then we’ll get promoted - it’s that easy! 😎🍷

It was only a joke @Mr Popodopolous !! No need to be ‘confused’ !

I think the OP doesn’t fully grasp just how difficult it is to recruit a striker who is a) up to Championship quality b) affordable.

Almost all Championship clubs are searching for decent quality strikers. There aren’t  that many out there that meet the criteria.

But guess whos failed to get one al same old same old .

I keep hearing that we need a 20 goal striker but isn't Fammy a 20 goal striker? He scored 14 two seasons ago when he was injured for 3 months and 13 last season when he was banned for almost 2 months. If he gets a full season with those stats he will be close to 20 goals

With the squad we have at the moment I feel we won’t progress on the position that we finished last season. My feeling is that this season will be a regressive one. I hope to be proved wrong.

have you not heard?, fammy is now the worst striker on the planet, and everyones gran is a better pro then him,

he's now been blamed for us not getting promotion when reid flint and bryan was here (thats because fielding has now left)
