Well we should be good at it having done the same thing with goalies for about 3 years!

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

Not so easy to move them on , they are on such high wages that nobody will touch them , the goal return over the past year and a half for the wages their picking up has been awful , I'm afraid we are stuck with them .

I fear youíre probably right. Sadly.

Iím not sure how many strikers you need but rest assure that a 3rd and 4th striker wouldnít be somebody that is going to bang in goals and seat in the subs bench waiting for someone to get injured.

There is anough there the issue is the service and injures you cannot have 4 strikers who are 1st team strikers, we are not city or one of the other top clubs.

1. Benteke
2. Ayew
3. Sorloth
4. Whickam
5. Zaha

1. Benteke - injured, woefully out of form for a whole year. A YEAR!!
2. Ayew - not an out and out striker.
3. Sorloth - a kid from Danish league, nowhere near ready
4. Whickam - injured, injured during transfer window, so club should have not relied on him this season
5. Zaha - not a striker

At least some part of the club has gone to the next level.

Spot on. Itís inept from the club. We got away with it once last year so to find ourselves in this situation again is depressing.

Paying over £50m + wages on a CB & a crocked striker has been the downfall, both vanity signings IMO

The first time it happened I thought maybe Parish believed he could extract a few more transfer $$ out of Blitzer, Harris et al but was turned down.. But then to do it again..

Looks like we will have to overpay in January too.

The Americans wanted to go for Benteke, Parish said in an interview it was crazy money.

Zaha may not be a strikrr but he's still a better striker than all of the above put together.

This is true...

jobiinthelastmi 02-11-2018 10:48 PM

Worrying times.

I would absolutely kill for a player like Freedman/Morrison, something different from the generic lumps we’ve had for the past few years.

Wickham and Benteke need to leave.

Palacebear 03-11-2018 12:25 AM

I honestly think we need to ship out our 4 strikers and get 4 new ones in, but given that no one will buy them and our recent ability in the transfer market it looks like we are stuck with CB, CW & AS!

Extremely depressing.

Reg_Maudling 04-11-2018 10:10 PM

I wonder if pva might be a lot better as a forward than a left back

Nice suggestion...

But this ultimately means we are finished! I can understand chucking Danny Butterfield up there when you are short of players and money... but being in the top league in England....

Is that the same Ulloa who actually left Brighton years before they ever kicked a ball in the Premier League?

It’s the same Ulloa that returned to Brighton on loan in 2018, making the post you quoted completely correct.
