Heard he played well in their last match. Hadn't really heard much about him before but he sounds like he could be pretty decent. 1 million would be a bargain in that case. I expect a few of us will follow Derby a little more closely and there'll be the odd scout visit.

His name sounds more to do with plumbing or to do with electrical amplification, I didn't realise Luke Plange was a footballer till last month's window like many of you

missed a good chance but provided an assist yesterday in Derby's win - main positive, other than gaining a lot of experience, is that his signing has annoyed Rooney

Looking positively at your positive, Rooney knows a thing or two about goal scoring, so his grievance is about losing a good potential future scorer, which is now our fortune. It appears Dougie really has got a keen eye on digging out developing talent.

In truth, it's very hard to know if Plange will develop into a PL scorer. What is unquestionable, though, is that buying up promising Championship or League forwards for paltry fees is a brilliant strategy. If you can bring in ten of them for ten million pounds (a million each) only one of them has to hit and you're laughing. To me, that makes far more sense than bringing in Chris Wood for £23 million. In that context, would you rather have 23 Luke Plange's or one Chris Wood? My guess is that you're more likely to find someone capable of scoring 15 goals a season among your 23 than you are getting that out of Chris Wood. One of those 23 might turn out to be Jamie Vardy. Chris Wood, on the other hand, will never be Jamie Vardy. At best, he'll always be Chris Wood.

With respect, Chris Wood is not that bad !
He has scored 12,14 and 13 goals in the last 3 seasons for a Burnley team that have hardly hit the heights in those seasons.

Agreed.

We are not going to be buying Messi so it makes sense to go for young talent and hope that one of them develops.

Scored today to help deny Fulham promotion (for another week anyway)

I wouldn't exactly say he's setting the world alight but he's doing pretty well. He looks like he'll be good enough for our squad, at the very least. A good buy.

He seems to be an all-out centre forward, which is kind of rare these days. He was initially credited with their first goal too, before it was given as OG. But his presence in the danger zone forced the mistake.
