Good post. Not heard of this, how come it's not been reported on here or on Twitter yet?

This is why I still don’t recognise Kosovar independence.

Yeah agree - the club needs to be more ambitious and instead sign a proven Premier League striker with no injury record, a high scoring record, and also whose value is likely to double in the next few years. I'm sure we can get that for a £0 transfer fee and £8.5 / week in wages.

How is it that the EFL are allowing to increase our wage bill like this? These signings don't sound particularly cheap to me.

Spot on.

We NEED a striker. We are not allowed to buy anyone. We have a chance here to get someone in who, ok past his best, can score goals.
And as for "injury prone has been" !!.....yeah, let's look at our younger players who don't get injured...Meite, Joao, McIntyre, Azeez etc etc.

Bring the bloke in.

Someone who might play 30 games and score some goals would be a good place to start.

On reflection I'm going to welcome Carroll, but only because he's given me my best cynical one liner on here in years.

No. You are wrong. We are lucky to be able to get ANYONE in. We can't pick and choose.

Go on....so you reckon we can raid a lower league club, and bring in a quality striker ???? Not going to happen. FFP is killing us.
If we bring in ANYONE who at least can score goals then we should accept it.

Not sure some folks on here appreciate the dire financial restraints we are under :roll:

If FFP is killing us why pay Andy Carroll £8.5k a week to play 15 games and score 2 goals.

Jahmari Clarke can play 30 games and score 4. For about £1k a week we're already paying him.
