|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
Personally, I would like him to stay. I think we play better with him and he is usually a threat to opposition CB's
Certainly, if we do go down he would be a huge asset. I reckon he'd be prolific in the Championship. Doubt he'll stay though. A few teams will definitely be after him.
Sell, sell, sell. I am absolutely fed up with him. I think he has been with us far too long and should have gone years ago, just like a load of other players should have and for the record, he won't be prolific anywhere he goes.
Did anybody else feel he could have made a bit more of one of those two lofted punts played up to him yesterday that put him clear in on goal ? I know he was unfairly charged off the ball by Dunne for the first one, but I still felt that he should have made a bit more of it. A touch more pace and he would have
In the first half he was taking Dunne for a ride. Had Dunne been rightly sent off it would have been a totally different game. In the first half against Vidic a couple of weeks back he was all over him aswell and won a penalty. I understand your reasons for wanting to get rid of him but I think all he needs is a good striker partner to compliment him.
Let's not kid ourselves here lads.
If we go down then basically our whole strike force leaves.
Keane goes back to Tottenham after his loan deal ends, same as Obinna at Inter.
Ba would no doubt go for the same price we paid - £6m?
Cole is easily worth £7m or so to the likes of Newcastle who will be in the market for a replacement for Carrol.
Piquionne might stay but we will probably take £1m and get him off the wage bill.
I can see us going for the likes of Nicky Maynard who is very highly rated at Bristol City and only has 12 months left on his contract so is up for sale. Middlesboro can't afford Kris Boyd so he will be available and then you also have David Goodwillie at Dundee United who we've been linked with before.
Also I'd hope Hines is given a new chance and a chance to see if he be a useful squad player.
I'd sell him whatever division we are in next season. Just my opinion - before everyone slags me off.
Keane and Obinna are better, although they are very different types of centre forward to Cole.
However Piq and Ba are pretty much the same type of forward as Cole and they are also better - in my opinion.
