I can only think of Jamie Forrester 'stepping up'...

I still don't consider Sam to be a striker though...

Please advise your definition of a striker as after his strikers goal last Saturday it seemed to be a good example?

Nippy, agile, leading from the front, goal poachers...e.g. Danny Hylton or Tyreece Simpson.  Wink

I think the Hoskins we've got now would have been scoring even more if he was paired with Bayo as a front two.
If he had discovered this form earlier he was capable of being a potent centre forward. He could have been our little Tony Cottee, although I doubt we'd still be seeing him in a Cobblers shirt.

Think we've had this debate a fair bit recently! Id class him as a versatile attacking player who can play in a variety of positions.

We've got 4 strikers as far as I see it. Bowie, Appere, Hylton and Simpson.

Whether they are individually good at their jobs is I guess subjective!

My definition of a striker is someone who predominantly plays down the middle of the pitch in the final third whose job is primarily too score goals. Maybe that's a bit 'old school' but hey ho!

Regardless of what I think though, he is without question our best finisher and also (as proven over a number of years) the best player at getting in the right positions.

I think wide in a front3 suits him best. In my opinon, only Appere is decent at playing down the middle. Bowie huffs and puffs a lot but 5 goals in nearly 18 months is not anywhere near a good enough return for your main target man.

If fit, Id select Hoskins/Appere/Pinnock as our front 3 every single game. With a view too bringing Bowie on. Then in January looking to bring in another centre forward so we could mix things up and play a capable front2 pairing if needed/planB.

Id send Simpson back to Huddersfield and try and cut a deal with Hylton. And yeah...this is me playing football manager. Im not saying its easy to do this stuff in the real world!

Thanks for your opinion on a striker, it is appreciated! Have highlighted your definition; for me many of his goals have come in the final third at a 45 angle from centre of the goal? Need somebody on here to post the areas he was positioned with all 9 goals!

Again going to say it. Surprised at the stick Brady getting.

Back Brady.

Felt we deserved to off beaten Orient, deserved something at Shrewsbury and BR. And if that of happened. Comfortable in top half. 😁

Back Brady. 😁

You forget how good the majority of the Wilson 2000-01 season was. Losing 10 places in the last 9 games.

Slight setback for Brady today, he gets caught by John Gorman. Strangely Gorman was sacked three games after the point because of a poor start. This feels anything but that at the moment.

The bar is rather lower for Brady than it was for Gorman or Page.
Mind you wasn't the sacking of Gorman more of a case of releasing him considering his personal issues?

His mind certainly wasn't on the job, I think his wife had died. I thought we were a tad hasty, though he was replaced by Stuart Gray, possibly our most underrated manager.
