Chris Martin : Confirmed as signed


Recommended Posts

It's a bit of a meh for me.

The only saving grace for me would be if he is in addition to what we already have rather than a direct / indirect replacement for one of our likely first 11. If he is additional then I can see the sense in signing him but I won't be doing cartwheels down to the Packet.

For anyone still not sure what type of player he is (or for anyone interested) here is Chris Martin's most recent Football Manager 2020 profile (based on last season's game). Each score is out of 20. Anything at 14 or above is very good for our level. So as many have pointed out he's not the quickest but is good technically, a more than decent finisher and very strong.

I know any link to computer games puts a lot of people off understandably, but a lot of scouting goes into putting together these scores so they are decent at getting a feel for the type of player at least.

Also stuck in Fam's for some kind of comparison

Happy with this but only if Fam stays too. 

It’s a pretty impressive front-four, who could all play with each other.  Personally I wouldn’t have minded Szmodics being the fourth striker, but I think this is an astute signing.

I know it’s a long way off, but the intention should be to look at succession planning for next summer in the striker position.  Do your due diligence over the next 8-10 months.

Even if he’s on £20k per week for 2 years, I think it’s money well spent.

Totally agree, he’s also street wise think we may get a few more free kicks and penalties when he plays.

Not sure why this signing is leaving so many fans cold. Play to his strengths and he’s a great link player. 

Very good, almost didn't spot it.

Looks like he may come into his own at the end of November when Holden is sacked and we resort to hoof-ball in a desperate attempt to escape the relegation zone.

Looks more like he has quite a rounded game and scores all types of goals. Good linker of play and can hold it up well. Potentially a solid signing as 4th striker and different to what we have already.

I doubt he will want to come in as a 4th striker. He is an experienced championship player, will want to play regular football and is still at a good age.
 

I think he is a good edition, but I’d be concerned if he was a ‘replacement’ for Fam. In addition to, great!

Decent signing to be honest - him Fam Wells and Weimann is certainly a top 6 front line on paper..

It’s amazing how one signing can make a big difference to outlook.  Williams was the first piece in the upgrade jigsaw, I think Martin makes our forward line better.

So he's a brave nutter who can take a penalty?
