I've said it before and I'll say it again. There is no need for a big lump up front. What's all this enthusiasm for a 6ft plus target man? In general, this is not the way that modern football is played. Being extremely mobile, strong and able to hold the ball up with an eye for goal is far more important. Being able to head a ball comes second in the desirability stakes. Watch big strikers heading balls and mostly the ball ends up anywhere but where it is supposed to, because they are being challenged by an equally tall monster defender! (Tyrone Barnett anyone? - sorry stuie!) What is more important is to get in front of the defender, make sure that the ball is played in fairly low to him and a good target man will be able to shield the ball from the defenders, lay the ball off to others or turn and shoot accurately. (Aaron McLean anyone?) - far more effective than hoof it in the air, hoping that the big man may get a glancing header on it!
Watch football and note that nine times out of ten, defenders will win balls that are launched into the air. I don't enjoy watching this type of football. It is a throwback to the fifties and sixties.
fair point
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far

Isn't Kieffer an extgremely mobile, strong player who can hold the ball up well? Who just happens to be 6'5"?

Amazing how many experts there are out there on players they haven't seen before.

I think you are remembering Big Tyrone rather than a mobile tall striker. he was a lump not all tall players are lumps.... Effiong from Woking looked far more mobile than half the Posh squad from the last round replay as I recall. I game context granted but equally as compelling as (cough cough) lumping all tall players together :wink:

We won't be getting Kieffer. It's all a clever ploy by Fry to try and upset the applecart at Rotherham and confuse them who are a point above us in the table.
Kieffer won't know whether he's coming or going.
Very clever Baz. 8)

Thanks for confirming our transfer window plans Bernard, personally I'll wait and see first. It might have more to do with FFP than TFO's mindgames? After all we don't often hear in advance of the dead cert players we sign.

He's forgotten more than we know...He's not only an expert on our transfer policy but also the FA cup.

Chompy, how many times have YOU seen him play? I’ve only seen him play once against us in August & a bit on TV v Portsmouth in November. I’ve no opinion on him either way but guessing you must have seen him play a few times and been impressed.

I think I've watched every police drama shown on TV since the 1960s, I wouldn't claim that my knowledge as a detective were better than anyone who has ever read a book or listened to them on the radio. Mind you some people obviously believe their own hype.

It's called playing your cards close to your chest. It is not wise to tell the DoubleRays' of this world exactly what's going on, it's liable to upset the apple cart.
