I think he's decent but **** me we've spent some money in transfer fees and wages for players that seem to live in the treatment room.

Why add Dann in particular to a list of our striking options?

Zaha, McArthur and Cabaye all scored more goals in the league than Dann last year, whilst Tomkins and Townsend scored the same number.

As an aside, our three strikers last season managed 18 goals in the league between them, whilst the rest of the squad chipped in with a further 30.

Who needs strikers eh?

In the NFL they always go on about 'next man up'. So with that in mind, this is Ladapo's big chance. Even with Benteke available to play we should try and get Ladapo on the pitch as much as possible. Lets make a virtue out of a **** up in recruiting. What would be better than seeing Ladapo succeed against the odds? I'd love to see him score at Selhurst (well, I'd love to see any Palace player score at Selhurst).

And it would be against the odds. He's never even played in the Championship. He's 24 and more accurately described as a 'journeyman' now rather than a young player. But its the coaches job to actually coach players to be better than they are. Our coaches need to improve Ladapo and probably starting playing Schlupp as a forward in training.

To be honest I would say Schlupp is the best option. He was a striker in the championship if I am correct.

Unless Ladapo can step up.

Anyone seriously considering Dann as any kind of striking option is off their rocker.

It was obviously a jibe to our position of signing no-one in the window, with the others injured or untested and Dann; a defender. de Boer put him up top against Huddersfield for additional bewilderment of the situation.

3 or 4 decent appearances aside i think hes one of the most over rated players in our history.
Sorry, but that is a silly analogy as Benteke has cost us close to 900k a game so far.

It could be the only option. Surely Dann would be a better target man that Punch, Cabaye or McArthur?

Well said. It's not ideal, but it's not as bad as people are making out.

Square pegs and round holes again!

No way is wilf a central striker - why negate our best weapon by playing him out of position?

And RLC is clearly better coming from deep with his pace and power - ie not with his back to goal as a No 9.

As for Sako, he can't even get himself fit for more than 3 games.

GF, we're attempting to compete in a world where many of the clubs we're facing can choose from an array of proven, if not international class, forwards. The idea we're even considering makeshift options in this environment means it's precisely as bad as people are making out. Benteke now has to do three things - avoid injury, avoid suspension and rediscover his form. If any one of those fails to happen, we are totally screwed. I'd suggest that's pretty bad planning.

That's what I think too. Like Pulis playing Murray at center half. He wanted an extra presence up front, and who else do we have who can bully defenders?

I hope so. He was starting to look a very good option, and I think his work rate would help.
