Don't shoot the messenger.

Cheers fella, has your source offered insights on any other targets, or is this a one off piece of intel?

Hepburn-Murphy and Davis both briliant in every sense of the word, Hogan played well too once he got his goal, and with Kodjia still to come back maybe we aren't so desperate for a striker after all.

Just to recap they were all playing against a bottom half league one club.  Let's see how they do against Leipzig who is a CL club.

Aside from the goal Hogan was constantly giving the ball away.

We need another striker, we saw in 15/16 where replacing Benteke with Gestede got us. As much as many people are dismissing quality of premier league you certainly need decent firepower in final third to be competitive in mid table.

I think at this point Maupay probably would make sense. Knows manager, looks good in championship and with his pace the sort of striker who could link up well with Wesley.

After those 45 minutes today I'm convinced one of Leao or Maupay would be ideal to link up with Wesley. He's very Benteke-esque, if we can find him a partner better than Weimann or Gabby that suits his style he could be a very good find. 

Agreed, but much as I would love it to be Leao, I don't think we have a chance, it seems he is destined for Juve or Valencia, and as he is controlled by Mendes he will likely land at Wolves before us (or Everton) if he is coming to the PL.

I'll happily settle for Maupay this window.

Is Maupay quick? I thought its more he reads the game well and and takes his chances well?

Call me greedy but I’d like to see Maupay on the end of Wesley’s through ball rather than Hogan this season.

Greedy,looks very likely now Maupay could well be on his way to you.

We're a Joe Lolley away from doing the treble IMO.

Not a bad option if Benrahma is out of bounds this window, took his goal well last match too, he sure has an eye for goal. But are we now able to be a bit more picky and want just a little bit more quality (and a couple of years younger)?

It was league 1 opposition. 

We 100% need a back up striker to challenge with kodjia.

I don't trust Davis, RHM, Kodjia or Hogan at this level. None of them are good enough. Out of all of them, Davis is probably the best player. 
Would be happy if we sold both Hogan and Kodjia.

Maupay is another player who is technically proficient enough to play off Wesley as an inside forward, or as the loan striker.

He is becoming more and more interesting by the day.

I think he deserves the chance, I think he could surprise s few, he shakes it up. Not going to be starter unless Wesley gets injured. 

He won’t surprise me. He definitely has talent. Its just you can’t rely on him as a lone striker. He don’t get other players into the game too much.

We’ll play 4-2-3-1.

If we buy another striker, he’ll play as an inside forward or a replacement/comp for Wesley. 

We won’t play 4-4-2.

I'd love Maupay but we'll need to do a lot of 10 against 11 drills in training.

I actually think RHM, COH and Davis looked very tidy today but I think they could benefit from another season on loan as high up the football pyramid as possible.

We've done some great business but we definitely need another attacking option. Someone like Maupay as mentioned would be fantastic because he can play more than one role in the team.

If we sign him Andy you will be forever known as Rigo The Righteous All Seeing Eye Of Knowledge. If however we don’t you’ll be known only as Disappointing Delphino  The 2nd.  😂

That's sensible, but I think our younger players could learn a lot from loan moves. But that goes without saying I guess

Davis the striker who doesn't score goals...

Our lack of offensive options worry me.

Playing a CB up front would probably have a similar impact to Davis.
