Thread: Who is the Championship striker..?

  1. #1

    Who is the Championship striker..?

    Alan Hardy said on BBC Nottingham today that we're after a Championship striker and he will know on Monday afternoon if we can get him. We've been competing with Wigan for the strikers signature, but they've just signed James Vaughan from Sunderland (and it wasn't him) so that must strengthen our hand.

    Who do you reckon it is?

    I'd like it to be George Hirst at Sheffield Wednesday. He'd only sign for us on loan as he'll probably get a move to a Prem league club in the summer. Phenomenal goals record at England U17-20 levels, but he can't get near the Wednesday team and seems to be in the middle of some sort of dispute with the club.

    Sounds familiar

    It won't be Jamie Ward - or indeed anyone at Forest. AH said Nolan hadn't spoken to Karanka at all yet and the relationship needs to be rebuilt.

    Petrasso would be interesting. Has talent and still only 22, tho he's barely played since his loan spell here 3-4 years back under Derry. He's a winger tho. So it won't be him either.

    I will throw a Championship striker in there... Eoin Doyle at Preston, on loan at Oldham until this month and scored 10 in 11 games... hes very decent indeed and has been in league 2 with Chesterfield

    It depends how strictly you interpret 'championship striker' but I hear that Wolves are keen to give Bright Enobakhare, their Nigerian striker, match experience. He's said to be one for the future.

    Whoever it is he will be just a bench warmer. There is no way KN will drop either Shola or Stead..We should have signed Green in the summer, he was a real threat yesterday..

    35 league games and one goal suggests he's not one for the present. It would be complicated anyway, with the FA Cup game coming up.

    Green may have been one of those KN approached in the Summer but was turned down.

    Hasn't he just gone to Charlton? Would be a remarkable signing admittedly

    He doesn't have to drop Shola, he's only fit one in four games.

    If you've seen this then it's the results of a survey of Charlton fans asking who they want to sign. He hasn't actually signed at all.

    He has been out with a hamstring injury and Derby may be prepared to let him go as he's not going to force his way back in. Burton have made enquiries.

    Darren Bent won't drop into League 2 . Would love for someone to tell I was wrong , what a signing that would be.

    Yes, another 30+ injury prone ex Premier League striker is exactly what we need right now.

  19. #19
    Jay-Roy Grot at Leeds could be a possibility ?

    The problem with strikers, or should I say good strikers is that they will be already playing somewhere and will undoubtedly not be out of contract until the summer. Plus with it being January any bids for players are always at inflated prices.

    Having said that if we could pick up someone who is decent but not getting in a Championship side with a view to them coming here and helping us to promotion with a view to playing in League One next season this could be possible.

    I would be happy to see us pick up a 31/32 year old striker from the championship who's played at the highest level like Stead/Ameobi and have the quality and experience that they bring.

    In AH and KN we trust.
