... of going for Stead. he's the same age as Porter and has a poorer goalscoring record (Porter 315 apps -90 goals, Stead 365 - 88 goals ).

I thought exactly the same. Scoring record wasn't great when he was with us last time.

Starts off well then tails off.

We need a proven and consistent goalscorer.

I agree mate, does not fill me with confidence either.
The only thing I will say is Steads done all his playing at a slightly higher level than porter.

I'd prefer a partnership of Madden / Stead rather than Madden / Porter.

When was the last time Stead played at League 1 level? He might be prolific in this league, who knows. He'd be an improvement on Porter anyhow.

Liam nobody knows whether Stead would be an improvement on Porter mate. He's as honest as the day is long and he is/was a good player but he's hardly prolific.
And if Madden's going to score he'd want to be playing with Porter, look how well his partners do when playing alongside him

If we're going to sign a target man at least make it a clear improvement, like Sammon for example.
