Go get him back off broke Wigan! Kieffer Moore will still command decent fee. Joe Garner should be very cheap or free. Ideal L1 player. Loves a physical scrap. Him and Norwood would be such a handful and pest for oppositions. He scored over 50 goals in last two seasons in L1 as well. At 32 he's got plenty left for a season to get us up and back up for next year.
I know it won't happen. I think he wants to be up north. I know he wasn't universally popular but that was a nail in hursts coffin. After Waghorn went he should never have let Garner go. We need a few more in your face players who can fight out wins when its tough.

Hi Phil, how long left on Downes contract? Are you aware if club are looking to pin him down?
I imagine it will be tough to hold in to him. Got to be our primary asset right niw but we are better covered in midfield at least.

Assuming next season goes ahead....I think we have to expect we lose:
Rowe (gone and doubt new terms)
Roberts (as above)
Keane (Gone but i think reasonable chance we'll offer reduced terms - he'll end up champ i think)
Woolf (Can't see us holding on)
Downes (Same as Woolf)
Garbutt (Can't see him signing now. wages will be beyond us)
So we'll have to sign a CB which is a worry but if we can get that right then the below still keeps me really interested and excited about next season:
Lankester (will be like a high quality new signing)
El Mizouni (Gained some good experience and should be his breakthrough year as fully fledged first teamer)
Dobra (Similar to El Mizouni - I think regular sub and transitioning into first team. Maybe 20-25 appearances with impact)
Teddy Bish (Fully fit Bish is just a class act. Lets see but he's gradually getting there and I think a good chance we'll see more of him.
Huws (Season under his belt. Mixed bag but after 2 years out no huge suprise. Class act and he will be better for what is back in his legs).
Dozzell - Make or break year. Downes opens.the door. We know he has ability.
McGavin - Could be a big bonus. Downes going could also open door for him.
Kane VY - Back and fully fit. Massive difference
Norwood - Fully fit. He struggled with that groin and still would probably have been around the 15 goal mark in full season. If he's fit he'll score.
Sears - Fully fit. Still useful in this division. Not the future but excellent squad player in L1.
Nydam - Lets see but if he is fully fit maybe he can be a bonus free LB. Versatile and decent. A possible bonus for us.
Folami/Morris - If Keane doesn't return then they have more of a pathway. Feels like they may be a little way off some of the above but maybe in pre-season they can grab a chance. Drinnan maybe the same...
This maybe classic optimism of a football fan...but still excites me that we have these boys coming through and that they will have an opportunity here.
