Sorry, with respect, that's total tosh. He's woefully inept at this level and we absolutely HAVE to bring in another if we want to move forward. In an ideal world, someone like Mateta is a 3rd choice striker who you thrown on as a hail mary.

He only got a decent run this year, in which time he improved no end. It's too early to write him off; people want instant gratification and results with new players. Some need time to bed in to a team - Strikers more than most, as they are mostly dependant on supply.

This coming season will be his (and Edouards) to prove himself. if by next Summer nothing's changed, then is the time to look for a different option.

Ok, simple question. Who do we replace him with and how much will he cost?

Totally agree. Forwards take time to fully develop their skills. Both Mateta and Edouard still have 2-3 years of improvement and from what I have seen both could become very useful. Especially Edouard who has tremendous touch and skill.

Writing off strikers too early is IMO a mistake. We sold Collymore for 100K. That worked out well!!!

Our management team must have seen something they liked with these guys. Lets see how they go this season.

Mateta will come good this season - no need for another centre forward with him and Edouard.
Southampton trying to muscle in on Levi Colwill apparently - however - I suspect he would rather stay in London with Palace than go to a cowshed on the coast!

24th in the Premier League last season for goals per 90 minutes suggests he isn't woefully inept.

Ahead of Jesus, Toney, Bowen, Richarlison, Watkins, Ings, Raphinha, Maupay, Antonio ....

Serious question - how much do you think the club would need to spend to buy a forward who is a clear upgrade on the 3 we have, and, assuming the club has 30m set aside for Doucoure and Aribo, how would you raise those additional funds for a forward of that calibre?

Who are you not signing, and/or who are you selling?

Remember last summer, people were chomping at the bit to get Adam Armstrong from Blackburn, luckily he choose Southampton and went on to score a total of 2 goals for them all season.

Getting a prolific goal scorer in our price range is virtually impossible.

My point was he scores goals = he is a goal-scoring forward. He was in the Bundesliga and when he's been given minutes he's scored for us at a regular rate. That's the black and white of it. Subjectively, he knows where the goal is and gets his shots away. But, that is not to say I think he is amazing. His hold-up play needs a lot of work, he is prone to looking like a giraffe and he makes mistakes. Clinton talks a lot about him. He says how he thought he wouldn't make it when he arrived but that he's completely changed his mind on him. You can see defenders don't enjoy playing against him because he's so large and ungainly. He is definitely an anomaly.

Gotta apply the same rule to Armstrong; 2nd season he has to prove himself.
Seems as though Mateta has had the better Start of the 2 - but he's been here Longer, Remember.
Better to compare to Edouard, who - without checking the fact - has had a much more similiar season to Armstrong.
