Last Saturday we didn’t start either. I can see us starting with no recognised striker again this week

I really hope that Ken and the coaching staff have spent some considerable time over the summer working on his heading.

For such a tall player he is absolutely no attacking threat in the air and it's one area of his game that surely can be improved by coaching and practice.

I would also like to see him being a bit more aggressive and physical in his play. I don't mean that he should turn into a dirty, snarling player but he should be able to use his physique to make sure the opposition centre halves know that they've been in a game.

An nice early season goal or two would do wonders for his confidence as well.

Go on Big Ken!

Why do people keep saying we only have two strikers?


We have Gary Madine Ken Zohore Danny Ward and Bobby Reid.

When do the 25 man squads have to be submitted to the Premier League. I've had a quick look but can't see the details.

It must be very soon (maybe tomorrow?) in which case it won't matter what free agents are out there (apart from for cup games).

As we have not signed a goalscorer these 2 have to start scoring on a regular basis. The loan window is still open, hopefully we can get a striker in on loan. Or are we restricted with regard to how many loan players we can have.

I have read posts on here saying that there is not much difference between the bottom half of the PL and the top half of the Championship. We managed enough goals to finish second last season, and I think our PL squad has more goal scoring potential than we had last season. We had Zohore as our main striker and we still finished runners up. If posters are correct about the difference between the top championship sides and the bottom half of the PL, some of you may be looking on the pessimistic side of things. We did ok last season.

LLAN BLUE. My opening post was about madine and zohore i know we have bobby reid as a sort of striker but he needs a step ladder to head a ball and he usally starts behind the striker and zohore's weakest skill is heading so our main heading striker is madine against these 6 ft plus prem defenders

the rule..a couple of years back { might have been changed }

a club can name less than 25 and compliment it at a later date with free agents...BUT if you have 25 or more contracted players you must name 25....going on that he will name 25 i think.

Why does he need to head the ball?

Those 6ft plus prem defenders aren’t going to have fun chasing after Reid and Zohore I can tell you.

An you still totally left out Danny Ward

YouTube would suggest our 2 new midfielders can actually pass pretty well so that could be a new thing for us! <wishing I had a load of smiling and laughing/crying emojis>

WE can sign free players, but tomorrow we name our 25 man squad, so why would we sign players that will not be named in the squad so cannot play in the premier
