I really like him, and he's come off a bad season so the potential value is there. It really depends on what kind of team McK wants and if he likes a focal point striker or wants all of the front line scoring equally.
I think expecting him to be a 20+ man is a big ask, regardless of the store put in McK's coaching but likewise, you'd fancy him as a project we could flip potentially. It also raises questions about whether it means Piggott has to go or the two can be rotated.
Calling striker signings this summer is really hard as we got rid of and retained an interesting mix from a cohort who didn't score nearly enough.
Can still remember that drive to work the day after wondering if any of our kids were dead or injured because they'd been telling us about going to see Ariana Grande the day before. The news seemed surreal as there was little to indicate what had happened at first.
We saw all sorts of brilliant community spirit, healing and people helping each other. As well as the scum like Yaxley-Lennon exploit it for his own wealth. Seems like it was a lifetime ago and also much more recent than 5 years.
It is, but my point was about teams like Wycombe vs Sunderland. Given the utter dross we've had in charge you'll not find many head to heads that favour us when 11th placed finishes happen and top six don't.
I'd fancy us in a tactical match up under McKenna any day than trying to outmuscle and break down teams happy to kick players and balls out of touch every chance they get. Let alone the fact that Sunderland probably won't come back down now they've gone up for a long time.
Absolutely not. Sunderland will play football against us and will suffer more for another year down here.
Wycombe are far more likely to earn us injuries and suspensions and a year of yo yo makes no difference to us. Sunderland a year ahead of us in the Championship could be much worse competition the season after.
