Bit concerned that signing a player from club Brugge and make him your first choice striker was the right thing to do. It seems to me we had better options up front when we got relegated. Obviously stronger in midfield and defence though

We signed Kodjia and McCormack that summer and Hogan 6 months later. I genuinely can't remember who else we had that these were supposed to replace? Abdomlamor obviously, but I draw a blank past that.

I know we sold Ayew when we went down who I would happily take back now.

Edit - just Googled and the other two were Gestede and Kozak 😬 Depressing memories seeing how awful that squad was.

We had better options the season we did get relegated though. Central strikers Wesley unproven, kodjia unproven and injury prone and Davis again unproven. That’s a concern we definitely need to address in January.

I kind of agree, but I'd personally play him ahead of Wesley and bring big Wes on as an impact sub.

Kodjia not great, but I think he's slightly more of a threat.

At the moment its picking the best of the two 5.5/10 strikers.

He only scored 11 goals in a much lower standard division - so his 1 in 5 for us is probably in line with that. What I don't quite fathom is the fee - because there doesn't look £22m worth there to me.

Was suggested at the time that the high fee was because it needed to that high for him to get a work permit.

Very muddled thinking if true.

It would be mental if we really overpaid by several million just to get a work permit.

I don't get why (if true) that we jumped through so many hoops to sign a low scoring striker ?

...there must have been other options?

I agree, if we're working with a budget of £22m+ and have the offer of Premier League football I'd think we had a fairly big pool of players to go after.

Agreed, but the fee really doesn't make sense.

If we paid half what we paid it still would have been more than what a striker from that league should go for. 

Especially a non prolific one.

I think we took too many risks in the Summer buying unproven players from inferior leagues.

So you would rather have Agbonlahor, Ayew, Kozak and Gestede over Wesley, Kodjia and Davis?

Ok then

It's been 5 games... 5!
