I quite like the false nine, though it does worry me a little that the only number nine we have, Porter, was last years top scorer by a mile...

Nothing wrong with Plan B working and there were a few penalties. Wasn't "by a mile" anyway. Give Baxter the penalties, that's what I say.

Germany played the same system when Klose wasnt playing for them in the World Cup. I think Klose was their only real 9 in their squad. I think Porter is our real 9 at the moment and also think McNulty is similar type of player to Baxter
Disagree, I think McNulty is a poacher and will usually find the target from 20 yards, whereas Baxter likes to get on the ball deep amd start attacks off their

Ours seem worse than most.
Same with a players one minute
they're shite and should be sold, they hit form and leave they're greedy and disloyal. It gets very tiring.

I would also say there is an element of empty cans, but there is always someone who can find a negative in everything.
I love how things irk you so much!

You must know a lot of fans FB to actually know this.

No one (or at least myself) is basing our striker situation on these pre-season friendlies. It's the fact we were the 3rd lowest scorers in league 1 last year, and have to date only signed one unproven striker this summer.

The reason people are coy at the moment is because some will say 'well we scored 4 against Dundee, there's proof we don't need a striker' or words to that effect, which would be a poor and pointless argument!
Well Thank you !!!!!!!!
I've been batting off the happy clappers all week on my thread 'why no strikers ?'
They are part of the 'it'll be alright on the night' club !
Get one or pref two in before the kick off ,and we are good to go !
:)

Wait and see the next few games to find out if McNulty is the out and out striker you seem to think he is
He is a striker no doubt in my opinion he's a old fashioned type centre foward in many ways and like to play off the shoulder of the last man. Also reports in Scotland reckon he could be the solution to out goalscoring problems, but as you said we'll have to wait and see.

To be honest, we only scored 4 goals because they were woeful at back at times, three of our goals came from their errors. I think we've strengthened in midfield with JCR and Basham and Reed looks a good prospect. The pressing our frontline were doing was good and will force mistakes in many league one defenses. Not too worried about our defence. McNulty looked lively when he came on and with a good striker with him we should score enough goals to get top two as long as our defence is solid. However, it is so evident we need a target man; Porter won a few headers when he came on but his ball control is poor and often loses the ball when we get in good positions - he isn't the answer. I know it is only pre-season but the start of the season is 13 days away and we appear to be no closer to signing a striker. I trust Clough but promotion may come down to a point or two and our lack of goals could equal a lack of points at the start of the season and it COULD cost us promotion via the top two, which lets face it is our only realistic chance of getting out of this league.

How so? Point out where I suggested the majority. The line about empty cans completely goes against your incorrect assumption.
You quite clearly said our fans seem worse than most,i was simply implying how do you know other clubs fans.
