Strikers
« on: December 27, 2020, 05:04:19 PM »

Current strikers at the club;- (unless any have been released....)
Fis
Harrison
McDonald
Salmon
Roache
Blyth
Peers

I think it was said Fis, McDonald & Harrison were on short term deals? Guessing until Jan.

With the quality of Colclough, Mooney, Ceesay, Kosylo & Hancock I would say we only need two strikers out of the above?

If Blyth delivers then I would imagine it would be him and Peers ( more as a squad/impact player ).

Predict Salmon will go back out on loan. Didn't know Roache was still here, where has he been playing?

I am guessing Fis, Harrison ( no idea why he was signed ) and McDonald will be released. Feel a tad sorry for McDonald, but we probably do need a stronger player up top.

We defo need to get 3 or 4 off the payroll.

I don't think Fisayo is short term like the other two you mentioned.

Don't forget Miller who is on loan at Nantwich.

You would think one of them would be good enough to stake  a claim to challenging Tom  as first choice striker .So far none of them have but Blyth does have a half decent pedigree as does Harrison .If they dont work out have Fylde got any strikers we could get on loan ?

Roache is on the books at Bamber Bridge. Think he's just a bench filler while they've got no games. Not sure we should be writing off Harrison before he's set foot on the pitch by the way.

Too much money balling for me.

Look at the difference Kosylo, Colclough, Smith have made. You have to go through a lot of players to find a gem, strange when we have the budget


Hartlepool signed Armstrong whose been a revelation for them.

This could be our best shot at a playoff finish in the next 5 years.

We were very good today, tempo was quality for the whole 90 mins. Just lacked concentration for a couple of their goals.

We either give Blyth a good few games or we start with Ceesay up top. Doesn't work with Peers starting.

Some how need to get 4 of quality starting. Ceesay is getting fitter and more confident but probably has the worst end product so let him stretch the CB's by playing up top,whilst the quality of Colclough, Hancock, Kossy and Mooney get up the pitch.

I like how Mooney is direct and has a few shots. This makes him slightly different to the other attacking players.

All the above are too good to sit on the bench so for me we need to start 4 out of the 5.

Need to de-clutter a lot of the actual strikers.

Blyth needs to be given a few starts to see if he is the answer .The potential  quality of our wide players must be right up there amongst the best in the league

We seem fixated on having a big player up top but we have looked our most dangerous and better as a team with Ceesay up top. Yes he isn't a striker but he worries teams.

Blyth was really poor today.

I would start Ceesay, Hancock, Colclough and Kosylo.

Different team with Hancock as no.10.

We need someone to hold the play but they don't have to be over 6ft

Hulme, reeves, Walshaw all kept the ball close and we played around them.

Would prefer someone who can run in behind and finish as much as hold up

Blimey, what's gone on there? Was Blyth just utter tosh?

Blyth was awful but to be fair he had very little service in that 1st half but poor when it did arrive to him. Not any worst than Fis.
I feel for McDonald, as he was never given a chance and looked OK.
No idea what the plan is with Harrison?
To be brutally honest none of them are to the standard.
However Ceesay has looked decent up top and must start there until we find that quality.
Also with Ceesay up there it frees up the LW for Colclough.

I'd be content with us running with Ceesay as the #9 for the remainder of the season provided we go all out for a genuine Hulme replacement in the summer. I had hoped that replacement would have been found by now as I genuinely believe, like many others, that it's the only thing holding us back from attempting to gatecrash the play-offs this season.

However I do appreciate the situation we were left in with the timing of Hulme's departure and I just hope the we have targets who simply aren't available to us at the moment. We should certainly be an attractive destination for players should our form continue and we finish in a good position.

PS - Admittedly I was against Ceesay up top earlier in the season but he's definitely won me over, as oneedham says, it allows us to pick from Colclough, Hancock, Kosylo and Mooney.

Ceesay up front is fine for me. I think he might be a better striker than a wing man as very little has come of his wing play. Mooney and Colclough are far more effective in the wide bits. my first choice team at the moment would be;

Thompson
Senior
White
Hannigan
Mullarkey
Moult
Mooney
Smith
Ceesay
Hancock
Colclough

with Kosylo being interchangable with Mooney, Ceesay, Hancock or Colclough if needs be or on rotation.

Mullarkey made a huge differnce when he came on. He gives the impression that even when picking up the ball on the edge of our own 18 yard box his head is up and looking where the goal is.
