He scored in Sheff Wed's last 2 games.
We certainly missed a physical presence up front last night.

Watched the game, bar his goal he was poor.

Wanted to hear some opinions or even some in-depth analysis on some options up top. I'll break them down into two tiers based on what their fees would be.

More Expensive Options:
-Alfredo Morelos (Rangers)- too fat
-Odsonne Eduoard (Celtic)- yes, but as you say, expensive
-Kelechi Iheanacho (Leicester)- yes, but they'll try to recoup a big part of the huge amount they paid, lad does well in few minutes on the pitch
-Michy Batshuayi (Chelsea)- yes
-Jonathan David (Gent)- he wasn't that expensive when I said we should have gotten after him, not sure now, but more of a second striker not center forward

"Bargain" Options:
-Josh Maja (Bordeaux)- for the future
-Ibrahima Niane (Metz)- not good enough yet
-Karlan Grant (Huddersfield)- looked good this season, however at 23 in September he should have already been a certainty, meanwhile we don't even know what the heck he plays best- left wing or center forward.
-Josh Sargent (Werder Bremen)- yes, but too young
-Timothy Weah (Lille)- I don't think he would be cheap, they paid 10 million for him and he has also been injured all season, so he's not really an option

Has Morelos put on weight? He'd be great for us, except when suspended/ banned. He has the strength required to mix it up with the centre backs in the Premier League.
More likely Morelos too expensive. I'm thinking at least 25mil. He's better than Bats in my opinion.

I'm thinking that 25 million too much for Parish. I hope I am wrong but I can see our transfer strategy based on free transfer and loans.

I really would like to know your definition of fat! You keep saying this about professional footballers, can you please explain and advise when you last saw a fat professional player. I just can’t get my head around this obsession you have of players being fat. Mitrovic being a good example. Thanks

Gabbiadini was quite large. Shipperley certainly.

Fair point but players at end of careers. Do you honestly think Mitrovic and Morelos are fat

Apologises but Mattteo has a good knowledge of players but this insistence of calling them fat is ridiculous. Shipper let us probably getting fatter by the day now he can’t drive around for his daily excercise

My mistake, sorry. I thought it was commonly accepted in Morelos' case. Everyone I know calls him fat. In Scotland they all know it.

Don't want to offend him, if he can play at a good level like this, then all the better for him. But it was pretty kbvious in bjg matches that he couldn't keep up. Steven Gerrard knows it, he substituted him in the last games before the pandemic. Had a good run in Europe, but only a few of his goals were against top competition, which he'd have every week in the PL.
