WestYorksRoyal Pace is obviously valuable, but what the system really needs to a striker who can hold the ball up, link up play intelligently and physically compete with centre backs. Murray can do all this and is an excellent finisher to boot. His experience and nous will make up for a lack of pace. He would be a quality signing. More to the point, any player with all those attributes plus pace and the ability to run in behind will be a PL player. I'd love to see Ings, but let's be realistic. Are we going to see the annual Long rumour resurface too?
Puscas can inject some pace and running in behind from the bench if we feel the game needs that.
I don't disagree he has class but our style, particularly away from home has involved setting up on the counter, and the striker feeding off the shoulder of the last man, as well as holding it up in certain situations. Murray obviously isn't the quickest to be able to do that
Doubt we'll see the Long rumours considering he's been a mainstay in their team recently, with them winning 8 out of the last 10 games!
