Spent £120m on backups to Vardy so far. 
 

Our recruitment defensively has been outstanding but attacking wise a lot to be desired... 

Jesus thats frightening

Who is Cavani behind? Seems to be starting most games

He is now, but Martial, Greenword and Rashford were starting until recently.

The inconsistency and failure for champions League football is the club as a wholes fault.

 

If we had a replacement / addition to Vardy, we wouldn't drop half the points we do.

 

Instead we get people like ünder who sit and warm the bench and then get given 10 minutes to work a miracle.

We've wasted so much on 'replacements' for Vardy.

 

The next one has to be right.

 

As someone has already said our recruitment and replacement signings have been largely outstanding and Vardy is 'irreplaceable' but it's one area we can't seem to get right.

 

The amount of time we've had to prepare and work out in this area we have to move and get it right pretty soon.

Even Wolves got a Brazilian striker on loan till the end of the season and would have scored 2 if it wasn't for the heroic s of the Palace keeper yesterday

So didn't score 2, cool story bro.

I'm sure we have identified and enquired about many striking options. It is the most difficult position to buy for. We know we have limited funds and the last 2 summers we have spent money in other areas we have needed. Tielemans last summer and Castagne and Fofana this summer. We dont have an unlimited pot of money and we also dont want to sign a striker on the cheap, as cheap strikers generally are cheap for a reason. When we got Vardy we have him the time he needed to develop. Where we are at now in terms of challenging at the top of the table and challenging in Europe we need someone who can hit the ground running. 

 

The dilemma between quality, price, wages and being happy rotating/being understudy to Vardy makes it incredibly difficult to find someone. Top and Rudkin will be all to aware of the money we have wasted on Slimani and Nacho and will want to ensure we identify the right player before splurging a load more money on a striker.

 

All this being said and the fact we have good cover in most other positions now, I'd be amazed if we dont sign a striker in the summer.

Too be fair to the club striker is without doubt the most difficult position to recruit and get right.

Get Martial. The guy is clearly out of favor at Utd and would sort our Vardy problem just like that.

1. United wouldn't let him go to a rival, unless it was a ridiculous fee.

 

2. His wages will be too high.

 

3. He doesn't work hard enough and would not suit our style of play.

 

4. Hes incredibly inconsistent and is not a natural goalscorer.

 

Other than that, yeh why not

I really think we missed a trick not signing Callum Wilson back in the summer. Think he would have made a great deputy for Vardy, could certainly do a job for us now. Would have given us a different option to what’s available in the squad now

Regarding your first two points, I'm sorry but if you want be like a top club, you act like a top club. Pay up or shut up.

 

And on points 3 and 4. Like I said, he's clearly falling out of love with Utd and shows with his performances.

 

And can play on the line unlike the other two plebs we have in our disposal.

Even he has been an absolute donkey this season

 

Yet would walk into our team right now and in form is better than our clowns by a country mile.

 

Time to act like a big club and become legitimately a top side for good!

Too late now. Any signing this window would represent a panic buy and the selling team would have us by the bollards Dawn. It's a shame because we need someone and it would give us a lift, but I don't think anyone saw Kele and Ayoze  being quite this useless when called upon.

Really

So this wonderful Brazilian striker didn’t score, or does nearly count now?   

I would much rather see Willian Jose start up front for us than our backup attacking midfield option

Why would he come here to start in 3-4 games and then live on the bench?
