View Full Version : Experience up front.
03-10-2000, 02:35 AM
Everyone says we need someone up front who has experience up front at can put them selves about... I'd like to chuck a couple of names into the ring:
1, Ian Marshall... He has been impressive for Bolton on loan, we could get him cheaply, he is strong, big and would be good for a short term solution. Everyone says he's a donkey but thats what we need at the moment.
2, Mark Hughes... He won't be getting many chances at Everton, is very hard to deposses, and has a future in management, Would also be very cheap and is not one with an attitude.
What you reckon?

There is such a thing as too much experience!
We don't need new players we need a new manager and a fresh direction.
If Jean Tigana was in charge Leon Mckenzie would be scoring 25+ goals a season!

Leon will never score 25 goals in any season Hughes is a bit of a grandad let's get Dele Adabola he's strong and still young we can cash in on him when we're promoted and in europe it gets very lonely in this cell oh here comes nurse!
I believe if Leon was getting played regularly he would have scored many goals by now. He has been playing really well when he has come on. Put it this way he can't be any worse than having Richard Harris up front!

I think that Ian Marshall has,or is about to sign an extension to his contract.
Leon couldn't score 25 goals a season at subbuteo.
Adebola failed a medical and then was going to join Luton before failing personal terms, doubt he's the answer.

Ok then Brian Deane scored a few for Leeds must be worth 750 thou

Leon Mckenzie, are we having a laugh here, he tries hard and thats a start but he is not the answer, I accept he is better than Harris but I think we could go through most players in the league in that respect. We need a big man, like we had Garry Thompson, like we had Paul Stewart.
03-10-2000, 11:53 PM
Like we had Jerome Beore,like we had Gareth Taylor.
No point in just getting a big man, an ounce of skill helps.

If Ewan Roberts was avaiable he would be a good shout short term (hes getting on a bit!) Mark Hughes sounds interesting.... what about Dougie?
06-10-2000, 08:34 PM
Kevin Campbell, the best we could afford.....

Brian Deane or Deane Sturridge. And hows this for a sneaky one: Titi Camarra...scoring hatfuls for the reseves at Anfield but not getting a sniff of first team action.

Clinton and Leon up front is a nightmare. Why he dropped Forrsell a couple of games ago, i don't know! I know he isn't exactly prolific, but at least he talks better english than Morrison!
