With the whole FFP we cant just go out any buy who we want while having a host of players on our books so to get a new target man in we would have to ship the other out, its that simple at this moment. We have at least 6 players we kinda need to get out the door.
Id like to see Sankoh as our 4th choice forward next year to see if can cope and carry on his progression
But we have Vokes whom if we cant get rid of will be playing so they wont be buying another target man
With respect no one said we should play berahino , because we can't get rid of him .
I have never seen sankoh play , but I would be amazed if our youth team centre forward , isn't quicker than vokes .
There is such a thing as putting your hand up , admitting you have made an honest mistake , and moving on .
Any argument along the lines of ...vokes isn't that bad if you ignore the fact , he is not quick enough for the championship , is just bizarre.
Why would we want someone , who is not quick enough for the championship , playing up front for Stoke city ?
If we are only going to play one up front for every minute of every match then Vokes slowness is a killer However that simply isn't the case it is it. Vokes will be used, as he was at Burnley,as a sub to go two up top. If we can actually have two wingers who cross the ball (not just one as we have currently) he will score goals. As for Sankoh if we are lucky and he signs his first contract for Stoke then it's important to remember he's a kid. Not in the TP sense either. He needs a full season of U23's. Chucking a 15/16 year old is unlikely to work for either us or him
Vokes is excellent with somebody like Campbell alongside him....not as a one up top
If it’s to be a one up top it has to be somebody who can stretch a defence
I agree = Vokes looks like he should be a decent lone striker but he isn't.
However does O'Neill's 433 require a lone striker or is it more like Brentford's front 3? Personally I think Vokes will get more game time when we go 532 as the width proved by the wing backs play to his strengths.
I'd see Fletcher as an upgraded Gregory - like Gregory he pulls defences around but unlike Gregory he's a good finisher. However I'd rather see us looking a bit more to the future so not unhappy to see this one fizzle.
I'm surprised by how well the Wednesday fans think he did last year.
I think he'd probably be a good signing (with caveats about injury worries), although it raises all kinds of questions about where we see Vokes.
But one thing he definitely doesn't do is tick the much-trumpeted 'hunger' box.
At 33, and as good a pro as he may be, he's clearly in the stage of his career where he's peaked and is now looking to see things out making as much cash as he possibly can (and the squad is crammed full of them) , and lacks that edge that younger players on the up subconsciously have.
