Ed002 reports saying we scouted gyokeres vs portugal and are going to make an offer soon? Any truth and with osimehen now looking unlikely is he the priority main target for cf? Or is it sesko or someone else? Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - I cannot answer questions about the timing of bids.}

Agree0 Disagree0

With the osimhen deal looking less likely has gyorkeres our no1 target?

Has a release clause so Chelsea and others know what they have to do if they want him.

Ivan Toney has to be the number one priority this summer. Jackson is getting better with each game and will be ready to lead the line soon. Toney is EPL proven and will do the job for a couple of seasons. Don't waste crazy money on a striker, if we are going to spend big, get a proven CB in ???.

22 Mar 2024 21:58:04
Ed002 Is he our first choice option now for cf?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea are already looking at other options as they are not convinced Osimhen will want to join in the summer.}

LukakWho imo don't see Tony an improvement on Jackson. besides can't understand how exactly Tony is proven rpl striker what exactly has he proven?

24 Mar 2024 19:39:30
Despite a headers v Brentford and Villa, Jackson doesn’t have the physical and Ariel box threat Toney has, great back to goal 40 yards from goal to give and go or channel runs but when we’ve needed to cross v teams who have numbers in the box, Jackson isn’t in the mould of a Toney or giroud or adebayo awonyi Antonio who’s going to cause panic and win those headers. The ones where you turn a ok cross into a goal rather than scoring header from a cross pin pointed onto his head.

Ed002 do you think we will get gyokeres or try for him? Or is price too high? I personally see us getting sesk. And with Brighton connections could we maybe look at Ferguson?

{Ed002's Note - (1) He is not the first choice. (2) Ferguson would be well down the list.}

Martin I don't get the hype around toney and Jackson only need time to settle down and I think he will perform when we have a formidable team not what poch is doing now. Toney is not even a big fish in a small pond yet you are raving about him. He's not Chelsea level much less one to improve us. So your fabricated skills of toney is a joke to me.

Matt, Haaland isn’t very good in the air. Actually do any of the team in the top five teams play with the sort of CF you describe?

I’m not even sure how many top clubs in any top league play with that type of CF anymore!

29 Mar 2024 15:06:34
I disagree Haaland is okay in the air. Just because teams in the top five don’t have a CF who is good in the air doesn’t mean they don’t want one. Why wouldn’t they, apart from posing a threat in the opponent’s box it is also useful defensively e. g Drogba.

For better or worse the so called modern CF has to have a more rounded game than being good in the air. A good first touch, good movement and pace now seem to be a bigger priority for the better teams in Europe not just the Premiership.

29 Mar 2024 17:26:03
I didn’t realise there is such a thing as a modern CF, I am not suggesting that being strong in the air is the only attribute for a CF but imo a top striker should be good in the air.

29 Mar 2024 17:45:48
In this case I’m using the term “modern” to reflect the current trend.

It would be wonderful if a CF had every attribute but unfortunately that’s is very rare. It would appear that most successful teams and there managers have decided that being good in the air is as important as it used to be.

I’m not even sure my No1 choice (Osimhen) is that good in the air.

29 Mar 2024 19:26:37
Tom, Osimhen is good in the air.

You may or may not remember but I went over to Naples at the end of last season, partly to join in what I thought was going to be a victory parade but Also to see my No1 choice as our CF play.

Needless to say the plan didn’t work out as I had hoped but I did take the opportunity to have many drinks with Napoli fans. I was very keen to bring the conversation around to the player rather than the team. They talked about his pace and work rate more than any other attribute. Obviously I had watched him throughout that season as I have tried to this season, including AFCON, when he was average. I have never thought of him as being brilliant in the air. If that’s another skill he has so much the better.
