    If a goalscorer is our priority how about Jamie Reid from Torquay? 23 goals and top scorer in National League South?

    It might have done him good to have gone away and learnt how to play mens football the hard way.

    Is it worth finding out? Loads of players have gone down the leagues and come back up older, wiser and tougher.

    I think it would take a transfer fee now, as he has a contract for next season (?)

    He was **** even at Conference South level at the beginning of this season. He only started scoring when GJ arrived.

    So was Stockley, when Bournemouth loaned him out at every other club other than City, and again at Aberdeen. Only Taylor and Tis have managed to get the best out of him. Maybe it's the same with GJ and Reid ?

    Being a bit hard on Jamie, he was a great prospect with us as an academy player but his career was stalled by serious injury from which he has made a slow recovery. Not saying he's great now but showing that he knows how to score, perhaps a report from someone who knows TUFC could tell us if he's any good rather than immediately writing him off. I'd have him down as a more likely prospect than Forte, Donovan or Bowman when it comes to hitting the net.

    Not sure about that.

    I think Reid needs to prove himself at National League level before you can start saying things like that.

    I don't think Reid is a goalscorer at a higher level, scoring goals in that league for a team that creates shed loads of chances is different to doing it at a higher level when chances are harder to come by. Thus far Reid has only produced at the level he is currently at despite having opportunities at higher levels.
