I would say it smacks of a halfway house - if we muddle through great, another 100+M to play with. If we go down all the marquee players are sold and the owners pocket the parachute payments to get their money back and make a return.

If not then yes, utter incompetence. As I said on another thread I can't imagine any US sports team with such a poorly constructed squad of players as we have, so I'd be fascinated to hear Blitzer and Harris's thoughts (assuming my first paragraph is incorrect).

Perhaps finally beating Shrewsbury is Parish's true wet dream, so he does whatever he can for it to come true??

Let's have a look at some clubs that are similar to us in size and time spent in the top flight recently:

Bournemouth = x4 fit strikers, including Wilson, King and Defoe (all capable options)

Burnley = x4 strikers (Wood has a small injury right now)

Brighton (only just promoted) = x5 fit striker, including Murray, Ulloa.

Watford = x4 fit strikers

So imagine going half a season watching your only fit striker (Benteke) get injured and then turn in a terrible first half of the campaign, low on confidence and way way out of form. Let's not forget that Campbell left in June and Wickham got injured over a year ago! So really this situation should have been dealt with six months ago.

Not a criticism of Sorloth, he may well come good, but how on earth have we not brought in at least one more striker with something to actually offer instead of Benteke?!? Just someone with experience and a certain style of play - no need to try and get someone to score 20+ goals, just someone, almost for the sake of having another option.

The same thing applies to our current situation with wingers. Sako was injured before the window closed and yet we rolled on with just Wilf and Townsend, and you know what happened next...

Staggering complacency or terrible management of FFP from the owners. I am very concerned by Steve Parish's approach to this all, which was unforgettably spelt out in his "maybe the sun won't com up" Twitter rant in autumn last year. Gambling on not getting injuries in a season when we've already had real injury problems is a ridiculous risk to take in the January window.

Jach and Rakip - wow. Two of the poorest signings we've ever made. Before you say "you've not even seen them play" - that is the whole point, THEY ARE NOT READY TO PLAY. The manager won't select them, so what's the point?!?! How complacent would you have to be to buy only the three players we bought. The poor manager was crying out for players. He explicitly said he need to bring in a goalkeeper and we messed it up, embarrassingly being exposed by another chairman for our clumsy, disrespectful last minute bid for their goalie. As for Rakip on a six month loan, what is that about?

Roy worked a miracle dragging us out of that mess from the start of the season.

After five years in the top flight and I still feel decisions are made on recruitment based on Steve Parish's hunches, which are no more intuitive than
yours or mine.

Strangely only Spurs are gambling as much as we are, with just Kane and Llorente.
I still think the chairman has A LOT to answer for in this department. The Premier League striker recruitment (lack of) has let us down for a long time now.

Benteke and Wickham are taking close to 2 million pounds out of the club between them every 10 weeks for almost 0 return , don't think the club can afford to go out and get another striker.
As a side note PVA has scored more goals in the last year than all our strikers combined stick the boy upfront

Could be inspired. Maybe boning up at left back wasn't such a fancy after all.

You need to watch more us sports. For instance Jack Zs Mariners.

Never saw the pub ,always remember getting escorted straight into the ground ,herded like cattle through a series of barriers hour and half before KO . And the pies were awful ,the tea weak as piss and the pre match entertainment was betting on pigeons landing in the centre circle . F4cking horrible place , should have given the town to Wales and closed the border


Anyway ,yes two fit strikers ,well if you can call them that . The club has shown no ambition whatsoever in the last year to address the fact that they cant rely on Benteke to get goals , for me a main requirement for a striker

We need a complete overhaul of our strikers. I wouldn't be against all of them being sold/moved on and us being able to start again (obviously I'm not including Wilf in that).

Pound for pound it's the worst strikeforce in the league.
