WHO Poll
Q: 2021/22 What competition should we prioritise this season?
a. The league is our bread & butter, so this year let's have a club sandwich
b. We're owed an FA Cup after Gerrard nicked our last one in 06, our name's on it in 22
c. A bye to the League Cup 3rd round gives us a good start, let's make it count
d. The Europa is our best ticket to the Champions League, this is the one
e. What's wrong with you, let's do the lot, has the quadruple ever been done

Championship players
Give that 6 of our first 11 were bought from the championship, it's clearly worked out well when we buy players there. Just looking at the strikers available;

Aleksander Mitrovic - wasn't fancied by Parker but he's now banging goals in again after Parker left.

Dominic Solanke - funny enough he is now playing under Parker, it'll be interesting to see how he does but he started scoring for fun last season.

Karlan Grant - struggled in the prem last year because he was playing in a shit team under big Sam. Similar build to Antonio, likes to run and scores.

One of them will end of top scorer at the end of the season but I reckon they are all available for less than £20m now.

Re: Championship players
Mitrovic is a rubbish lazy forward. He does well in the Championship because Fulham dictate the play and can get the balls in the box. He's totally unsuited to a team that has to press and chase the game. No thanks.

Solanke would be VERY expensive bearing in mind his form and what Bournemouth paid for him. Still a risky move. No thanks.

Karlan Grant would be a good signing if we signed 2 strikers in January, and a very unambitious signing if we (as we surely will) get 1.

Re: Championship players
The championship has been harvested heavily the last few seasons.....it needs time to produce some cracking talent again

At the moment there are not many good enough for us in there, Solanke and Mitrovic showed nothing last season

Look to France would be my judgement

Re: Championship players
I like it when we get young talent from the championship however we need better in the ST department to give Antonio the serious competition he needs.

Re: Championship players
Mitrovic has never cut it at premier League level . And solanke isn't good enough either . And I can't imagine Declan will be too impressed either if that's the calibre of player Moyes is targeting . There's far better strikers in Europe who are available for less

Re: Championship players
The problem with championship players is that if they don’t cut it at PL level you can’t sell them back to the championship because their wages are too high and the transfer budgets too low.

Re: Championship players
Looks like either Mitrovic or Solanke will end up top scorer, Grant not doing too bad at joint 6th with 9 goals.

We should get one of them over January.

Re: Championship players
I've always quite rated Mitrovic, yes he's not a world beater by any means and needs a few chances to score a goal, but does have qualities and plays with passion. Think he would be a good add to our squad, not gonna happen though.

Re: Championship players
I would rather we find a hungry decent championship player, that would feel privileged to join us, than signing Zouma and him becoming our top earner.
