I said elsewhere that I wanted to see us gain a goalscorer or two, and was confronted with the ‘where do we get a 20 goal striker from?’

Now, I didn’t say they needed to be strikers as such (I said ‘up front’ which I can see implied out-and-out strikers but actually meant the attacking third of the pitch) and I didn’t say 20 goals, although of course that would be nice. A 10 goal striker and/or winger or attacking mid would all be fine. What frustrates me is that we have had goalscorers before, even on our budgets. Why not now?

We should be able to compete for either experienced scorers finding it hard to re-establish themselves after a hiatus, or goal-hungry players from below who’d be thrilled to play at a higher level. Maybe - as Rotterdam says - persuading a couple of decent appointments to come here may take a bit of extra money, but it could be that or relegation. Our current squad aren’t finding the net, so clearly they are a big part of the lack of goals issue. If it’s formation or management or some other reason, then it needs identifying and sorting out fast, because we need goals from somewhere.
