They were also very well-paid. Let's not forget that the gamble of trying to get into the Championship nearly bankrupted the club. However, while we are on the topic of strikers I see that David Wheeler was on twitter congratulating City. I've no idea what his contract situation is but I wonder if there's any chance that now he's a father we could persuade him that Devon really is the best place for bringing up a family.When you look at the last time we were in L1, what really kicked us on from just surviving on the last day and coming 8th was quality up top. The first season we brought in Corr and Norwood to go with what we had. They were too suspended and inexperienced respectively.
Next season we brought in Nardiello, Cureton and O'Flynn. Certainly the first two were quality we don't often get down here. Obviously both came with health warning stickers (injury prone and past it) but both could finish. Just seek out old YouTube vids and the quality of finishing is a different level to what we have now.
Nombe, Jevani and MJ can thrive in L1 but that added quality, consistency and depth in options up front are key.
