I really rated him at Tranmere. He has seemingly done nothing since.

As I said on Twitter it's good to have another option but you know our fans will be writing him off and calling him shit when he doesn't score in his opening two games after getting no service.

Cassidy’s signing is seemingly in line of continuing a policy of assembling a squad of lower league players who have done little at their previous clubs - hence the obvious negative reaction. We need a proven goal scorer to try and do what we have failed to do all season yet here we are buying a bloke who scored no goals in 38 games for Southend and Oldham - hot on the heels of bringing in a bloke who couldn’t get a game for Harrogate. Surely we should take a gamble on preserving our league status by signing a proven scorer at league 2 or National league level. I don’t get why you would spend five figures on a non scorer? But, dare I say it, it reflects Wallace’s ambition I’m afraid. None. (Baldrick and East Coast bore need not reply)

We signed a prolific non league striker preseason.

That didn't work either. Finding another 20 goal a season man who wants to come here, rather than hang on for a better offer, given our position and finances... Yeah that'll be easy.

Unless you've got a cunning plan Mr B.

This bloke doesn't look like the answer but give him a chance.

Sure. I hope he's a success and has goalscoring ability. He cant do any worse than those before him this season. My point is that games are running out - why spend £10,001 (lets's assume it wasn't that much more) to take a chance on someone hardly setting the world on fire in his recent career. Perhaps Westley has seen something in him - I guess he has otherwise he wouldn't be here now. But it all smacks of building for a National League campaign next season - not a throw of the dice to keep us in the Football League. Sure we might not have the money to go buy a Jamie Reid or Ryan Bowman - and yes, why would they want to join the League's bottom club. But Wallace has to take a punt sometime... before it's too late

I think we can probably learn something from the Leesley signing here...

Leesley may not be the best left winger available, but his set pieces are excellent, as is his delivery from wide areas. Now we're signing a striker who may not be the best striker, but one who's focused on bringing others into play.

It seems that Westley is putting together a team of players who can bring very specific things to the team. Thinking about the collective, rather than thinking about the individuals, and simplistically with "we need a striker who scores goals".

I could be wrong, but that's my take on it.

Maybe harder because of the wind, but I didn’t see anything that I’ve not seen from every other player that takes set pieces for us(expect Adam Miller)

Well it's not as if any other clubs are looking for a 20-goal-a-season striker...
Whatever GW's shortcomings, he has an outstanding record at identifying and improving non-league players.
Beardo had a similar profile when we first signed him. So let's just wait and see.

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.

In our League seasons with the best PPGs, our top scorers were Beardo (10), Charlie Lee (9), and Moose/Byron Harrison (8).

Individual goalscorers are good, but a cheaper option is for the team collectively not to be monumentally shit.

"goal-hungry players from below who’d be thrilled to play at a higher level"

We did that with Cowley, and, until now, it hasn't worked out.

I personally think, from what I've read of what Cassidy brings to the table, he'll be a good signing. He sounds like a forward who's primary role is to bring others into play, and if he can form a partnership, either with Cowley or with the attacking midfielders, he could be exactly what we need. Plus, he's not too old, so could have room to grow and develop.

And let's face it, if it means that we don't have to rely solely on CMS (did we even extend his loan?), don't need to bring Revs off the bench, and don't need to play Guthrie, then I'm all for it.

Indeed, Cowley has not been the Messiah so far, but would we say it hasn’t worked out? I’d say he wants to score, chases relentlessly and defends from the front. He scored a couple of decent goals very early in his career here, but got dropped pretty quickly, so perhaps needs more of a chance. I’d certainly rather him to Guthrie.

Watching on the screen as opposed to in person, finishing doesn't seem to be where the problem is.

Relying on defensive blunders and scrambles following aimless lumps into the box to create our chances seems to be what's wrong.
