We need a Gaston replacement
 
 
He was the only reason we were promoted.

We have a good defence. we have a good forward line. We have no-one in midfield with the creative flair, apart fromm maybe Traore (and Baker if he lives up to his reputation).

Need to find a playmaker - someone who can knit the forward play together

Isn't that meant to be Braithwaite?

i cant have this "only reason we were promoted". we had been in the top 2 for months before he signed. we only slipped out of the top 2 after he signed and then we managed to finish on the same points as the third team and go up by the skin of our teeth. rhodes was of equal importance. but we averaged more ponts per game before gaston/rhodes than after in the promotion season.

this 5hit about sinle handidly getting us up is a complete myth for the lazy thinker.

its was 46 games. everyone did their bit. dimi makes one mistake and we dont go up. surely he was equally as important....

the above said, we probably do need a gaston type player. just without the 5hit that came with him.

Surely the accolade (you got us promoted) should have gone to Stuani... at least he scored the goal that really mattered?

I think we're covered, with Bamford, Braithwaite and Baker able to play number 10. I'd rather see Bamford in there and Baker at the tip of the midfield three to give us a bit of flair in there.

I'm not sure we'll use a number 10 though, suppose we'll know in a month whether we'll set up like yesterday with two up top and someone in behind, or with Britt as the focal point and the two others playing wider. I thought we went for the two yesterday because Rudy can't really play as a wide forward.

If anything I think we've got one striker too many if Monk sees Baker as a number 10, especially if we bring in Ojo. Britt, Braithwaite, Fletcher coming in for big money, plus Bamford, Rudy and theoretically Traore. Wouldn't be surprised to see Rudy leave before the end of the window if we need to do some book-balancing.

Agree Id like to see us set up something like this

.....Howson....Clayton
...........Baker

...Bamford.Britt..Braithwaite


Dont think we will sell Gestede though, will leave us pretty light up front and he was excellent today.

That is how we will set up i am sure JL.

Gestede will stay, he was ok first half, not excellent mind. Despite his goal, he is a terrible footballer
