Reports saying our bid for Josh King has been turned down by Bournemouth.

Agree0 Disagree0

The very Josh King that used to play for us?

31 Jan 2020 08:14:36
Would prefer him then Slimani.

31 Jan 2020 08:37:07
i don't rate him what so ever. would he offer more than martial?

somtimes martial can be fantastic but he always drifts in and out of games for me.


im unsure on king don't think he would improve us.

Agree don't want him I like the look of william jose looks half decent big and strong and knows where the net is.

Martial has been given the No.9 shirt and a massive new deal.

When fit he will be the first choice central striker.

We aren't looking for a world class first choice striker to come in.

We need a rotation option who offers something different, ideally a back to goal striker who can bring others into the game.

Giroud would be the ideal signing, I just can't see Chelsea selling to a rival and if they would I see Spurs ahead of us in the queue due to Giroud preferring to stay in London.

I think Chelsea will rather sell to us than Tottenham. plus Giroud knows he has a better chance of getting playing time with us over the next 12 months. Given his age he will also want a final pay day which we can offer better than Tottenham.
THe only issue is we are not interested.

Some of you may have seen The Masked signer on TV (yeah, quality I know! ), and would have seen Teddy Sheringham as the 'tree'.

If we wanted to sign a tree, maybe we could sign him again. Be a cheaper option than Giroud.

Shappy,

Martial lacks consistency. Also you said when he is fit. He is quite injury prone. He needs to be more aggressive. At times he is like a other Pogba, hands on his hips.

I don’t rate Martial at all.

If we had sold him and held onto Rom, we’d be in a much better position this year. Martial is just a confused player, doesn’t have the instincts to make it as a striker and hasn’t worked hard enough to improve his wing play.

I think Martial is a better player than many give him credit for. That said, he doesn't look like he will become the world class striker he looked like he would grow in to during his first season at the club.

He is a good at linking up play and is the most clinical striker at the club (Greenwood not withstanding as he is in his debut season and isn't ready to be first choice starting striker every week) . He doesn't make enough selfless runs or gambling runs.

In the right set up and tactics he can be a very good striker. Considering this season we have struggled to create good goalscoring chances, and Martial has spent time out injured (which often means a player needs a game or two to play themselves back into form) . Martial has 8 goals in 1458 minutes which is a goal every 182 minutes or a goal every other game. Which is a solid scoring rate. If he hand't been injured and we had been creating more and better goalscoring chances he could be close to being one of the top scorers in the league.

The real issue with Martial is his injury record. He just can't stay fit for a whole season. That's why we need another central striker, with Rashford struggling centrally and Greenwood being a year or two away from being ready to step into that role.

My favourite person for that role would be Raul Jimenez, but he certainly won't be available mid-season. So someone like Giroud for 18 months would be a great option to allow Greenwood time to grow into the role.

Shaps, you need to change your name to Stato. Or get a hobby.
