Yeah, unless we get a decent replacement for Palmer we'll struggle, despite plenty of promise in other areas. Really not ideal that we don't have one already as a big difference between a win and defeat tomorrow.

I know the arguments against petitioning politicians to interfere with the judicial system, and that you can't have blokes running blokes over willy nilly, BUT.
Yeh the OP replacement is a massive throbbing unknown atm. Can't remember a past (expected) signing that was so eagerly anticipated, with so much seeming to ride on it.

Just need someone with a bit of strength if nothing else... Or rather - almost anyone but another Folivi clone...
One for Biggles - [Link] - nice to see the kids and their parents keeping the figures high while the unvaccinated die

No matter how so many of you will try, you cannot polish this turd. Your time would be better spent researching best routes/modes of transport for next season when we visit the L2 grounds.

Use the Palmer money to help get rid of the oan rather than spunking it on yet another useless twat
Also agree kt2... but... whilst I'm still enjoying our football more than I have for a long time, we still lost and still didn't score - so I agree even more about the need for a striker. I think that given the apparently lack of decent striking options out there that this may turn out to be a bigger challenge than we can solve and we'll soon be relying on other results which is something that earlier in the season didn't look like a place we'd end up.

Fascinating to see how the next few days shapes up.
kt2 - agree with that. There were a few comments yesterday that this was the worst team we've had for years but I definitely don't agree with that. As you say, we're a couple of experienced players away from being a decent L1 team. Midfield (defensive and attacking) is best it has been for a few years. Another plus is that players I had certainly written off have been given runs in the team and look like they could develop into reasonable L1 players (e.g. Osew and Csoka).

Good points KT2, we are tougher to beat. If we could now get a goal a game we will be safe
Defence has been mainly solid the past 3-4 games, bar lapses from NGW / Csoka v Ipswich. WN back in with Brown joining, PK back soon as worthy back up - we should look pretty solid at the back. Woody back into MF with options of AH, Marsh, Rudi, McC, Assal, not looking too shabby. Ablade + A.N. Other... eventually Pressley as a back up... Just need someone to aim at in the final third / from throw ins.

Realistically we aren't going to get a proven goal scorer at league level. We just need someone with physical presence who can get their head on it and occupy a CB, maybe even bang in a few if we're lucky. Still easier said than done.
The need for an out and out CF is dire, but at the same time it feels like we're one signing away from being a properly competitive lower half of L1 side again, if the Brown rumour is true. Look at Tuesday's performance without WN, Woody and OP - 3 key senior players. It wasn't shit by a long shot IMO. The youngers did us proud on the whole.

Experienced player, physical presence, arial ability... presumably we're looking at Darius taking on the Ollie Palmer role?

Cheap and simples!
Trigs, Woody was loitering around in the fan zone before the Ipswich game and said he reckoned 2 weeks. At the time I thought he was maybe being optimistic.

This report says that we’re checking on woody - as though his injury may not be as bad as feared - I suspect just lazy journalism but a glimmer of hope maybe. [Link]

Hylton hasn’t much of a record above National League and League 2 and he’s now 32. It’s a “no” from me.

Rochdale signed Tahvon Campbell from Woking, and yet his wiki shows next to nothing as a striker until this season, when he has hit a purple patch: [Link] How can you tell, who will do well, and who won't? Complete lottery.

I would love us to sign Hylton just to see Wagner’s posts of cheer and positivity about him 🥰

If we pay £5k a week until the end of season, we might just get a loan striker whose out of puberty.

Impossible to blame Palmer for chasing the cash at Wrexham, but if the only way for him to stay here was for us to offer him a three year contract we did the right thing not keeping him. We tried the “offer an injury-prone striker a 3 year contract” route just recently and it wasn’t exactly a massive success. Wrexham are a vanity club with money to burn and if Palmer gets injured they just get the Hollywood ownership to write another cheque for someone else - on our chosen path we can’t do that.

Rough numbers we were paying Ollie £2k a week, Wrexham are paying him £5k a week.

I'm glad we weren't willing to match their contract :)
If we don't get a striker in before tomorrow's match, Cosgrave definitely isn't the answer. He looked like a lucky competition winner on Tuesday.

if we had matched Wrexham's £1Mn contract I am sure he would have stayed - was never going to happen though - because first & foremost that is a ridiculous amount of money to pay an almost 30 year old striker even at L1 level
