New striker?

Post by tonyp » 23 Oct 2017, 06:48

Here we go again?
Looking to import lower league players?
According to Alan Swann
Posh show interest in National League strikers
Peterborough United have shown an interest in Leyton Orient striker Macauley Bonne. A source close to the player contacted the Peterborough Telegraph today (October 22) insisting Posh have watched the 21 year-old. Bonne has scored seven goals in the National League for Orient in 16 outings this season, but none in his last eight appearances. Bonne moved to Orient from Colchester in the summer. He spent four seasons at the Essex club, but spent most of his time on the substitutes’ bench.
Posh are also rumoured to be interested in Solihull Moore striker Oladapo Afolayan. He’s scored seven times for the team bottom of the National League.

Our best striker came from that source. It's the best way to go imo.

And, of course, it's the only way to go unless we want to wait until January, or go with a player that tony hasn't heard of, like Simon Church.

The fact we're scouting at all when we lose a single striker shows what the gaffer thinks of what he has aside from Marriott.

Say what you like about GM but he's a good judge of a player. If they ain't up to it, they soon get frozen out.

Seems like he and I knew Gormley's limitations before most...

As long as it works out we can't very well complain.
And we can't afford a league 1 striker.

OK, one more time.

It's not possible to sign a player from another league club until JANUARY.

All our own doing this.

We go into the season with 4 strikers all untried at league one level.

One gets injured...One the manager doesn't fancy...One's 17...Just leaving Marriott.

Now we are having to scour the non leagues again for a goalscorer .

We can't afford a League 1 striker come January. So we have to scour the non leagues again.
DMac doesn't have the bottomless pockets that Posh fans thought he had.

As has already been said....

We can't sign a player either on loan or permanent from another League club until January.

So we have no choice but to go non league.

WALOFS.

Tony (if you can stop pretending to have me on 'ignore' for a minute), we sign from leagues below around 90% of the time. The remainder come from the leagues above.

When was the last time we signed a player from the league we were in at the time? It's not our M.O. Nothing to do with DMac's pockets.

We can't bring in a player on loan, or sign one on a permanent unless he's out of contract like Simon Church (who?) or from the non-league. UNTIL JANUARY.

Ceenitall, are you saying Junior is our best striker ahead of Marriott?

I've been Junior's number one fan since he shipped all that weight in the summer, as well as Gormley's biggest detractor, but it'd be a push to have him above baby T.Rex.

If the window was open I'm pretty sure that he'd have opened his wallet and bought a striker.

Our problems though are borne from bad decision making....

From Chairman down to manager down to individuals on the pitch.

Until we get that right....It doesn't matter what he does or doesn't spend

Marriott is a splendid finisher, one of the best, Junior has his own qualities, he can hold up play with his weight and size long enough for somebody to make up his mind to have a run.....depending on how long it takes someone to run, which is what the manager should be drilling into them but seemingly doesn't.

I don't think anyone thinks Morias is a better goalscorer than Marriott, but the two together are our best forward partnership.

No coincidence that the wheels fell off our campaign when junior got injured.

I agree with most of that. In fact I'd guess that most fans would.
As regards the opening of his wallet we'll just have to see what comes out of it if and when he opens it in January.
As regards the decision making the buck definitely stops with the chairman. If he starts making good decisions things will start to improve.

Listening to an interview regards Huddersfield

Managers win games, not Chairmen
Plymouth to Portsmouth 2017 -2018, that ain't far
