The options are so poor - Rueben Reid has more goals for City this season than McAlinden , Jay , Simpson , Brunt and Loft combined
FFS How many times does it need to be said....We don't have a structure to identify the players who are developing at other clubs...We just don't...It makes you wonder how hard we tried remembering according to the maestro players ring him to ask to come and play for us !!?
so you really think a second div team on a v v tight budget can keep a goal scoring striker on the bench ?Even if Malcs is wrong, which I doubt, then the structure is useless isn't it if it provides us with Simpson, Blunt (from Plymouth and long-term injured) and Loft
i said right in the beginning THIS SEASON reid was a better fit for us, he lacks electric pace but his overall play was/is smarter than stockleys he holds the ball up much better than stockley cutely brings other players into play and first touch and his finishing IMO is better than stockley's but long term you cant but say stockley is a better 'investment'. boils down to good strikers are always in demand and dificult to keep if they aint playingThe options are so poor - Rueben Reid has more goals for City this season than McAlinden , Jay , Simpson , Brunt and Loft combined
