Has wide player become more important than striker?

So Burnley couldn't handle Benteke and Sako up top. We created a hatful of chances against the leagues 4th best defence. Zaha by his standards was quiet and McArthur on the other side was never going to be the most creative.

With all that would we be better with an additional attacking force out wide, especially with Townsend out, than an extra striker if Wickham is due back in a few weeks?

We need both. Despite Benteke not playing that well we would still miss his presence if he's ever out. We would have beaten Swansea with another decent striker. Sako is playing very well but is at his best when playing off a central striker. Wickham must be viewed more with next season in mind.

I think we need a minimum of one striker plus another wide player. On top of a keeper and centre back.

For me it is inconceivable that we leave the window without both. Even if the best we can do is take a chance on a wide man from a lower division we must have balance out wide in the event of a Wilf injury etc. Look how we disappeared off the face of the earth when Bolasie was out that season too (despite having Wilf).

Surely if this was the option, it would be better for Roy to wave his magic wand over Chung-Yong Lee.... in the same way Wolves raved over Sako, Bolton raved over Lee, I think he's a decent enough player, he has pace, ball control, tenacity and even a decent defensive side, plus he has a shot on him, he just needs coaching to deliver the cross or forward pass more often. If Sako can achieve redemption so can Lee (for that backpass)

If we get Babacar or Niasse, and a decent CB, I think we would be OK for this season without replacing the goalies (I wasn't saying that at the start of the season, but of late both Jules and Wayne have stepped up). I'd prefer it, but of all the positions to miss out Striker and CB aren't the ones.

A new striker allows Sako and Zaha to operate out wide. Townsend would be fit in Feb, and of course a few helpful cameo's for Lee would help (perhaps he can also operate as a left back in an emergency?).

Beginning to think a new midfielder might be required though



This would mean Sako

Have been saying this for ages. If Zaha is injured then we will have zero creativity. We have 2 strikers (Benteke and Sako) playing well, and Wickham to come back in soon hopefully. We need another winger.

No but after GK, ST and some form of defensive player a solid fourth priority

All depends on what system exactly Roy and DF want to implement long term going forwards. Is Sako deemed as a front man or a wide man?

All in all we need to strengthen in every area due to the poor depth we have. I don't want us to rush it and get more average/poor squad fillers.

A Keeper and centre forward are the two clear priorities. A forward who is a recognised striker and offers something different up there, better movement and pace would be ideal.

Both important. Need additional winger and forward this window.

Goalkeeper we could muddle through to the end of the season. For a team possibly going to finish between 12th and 17th - they will do.

We ideally need two more forwards. One who can play across the front, and a target man. We also need a centre back, a defensive midfielder and a keeper. At least.

I previously thought we'd need a striker and a winger who is versatile enough to play further forward, but the emergence of Sako has, in my eyes, ticked that last box.

It sounds as if things are progressing with Babacar. Potentially in a months time we could have the following attacking options available to us:

Benteke, Babacar, Wickham, Zaha, Sako, Townsend and Loftus-Cheek.

I like wide players more than strikers. These days, these fullbacks like to push high up the pitch and leave space behind. That's the weakness for many opponents, including the big clubs. For a club like us, one of the "little clubs," it's the wide player who can exploit the big club that wants to assert themselves by pushing higher up. Imagine if we had two Benteke's, in good form. Yeah, that's useful. But imagine if we had another Wilf. Now you're talking about a club that can do some real damage down the wings.
