There’s no doubting what the main issue is for Garry Monk and his side. The lack of goals is not a new problem, and with the limitations on signings, it was something that was unlikely to be put right this summer.
Major investment in the front line is what is required, but we don’t have that luxury currently. We are allowed just one more loan/free signing, and the question is, what position do we look to improve:
We need a player who can create chances and a player who can put them in the back of the net. So, I asked fans, what they would prefer: a playmaker or a striker? The majority went for a new number nine:
While Monk has reinforced the forward line with Omar Bogle, there has been no sign of us improving in front of goal. Isaac Vassell could have been the answer but a reported injury setback means we’ll need to look elsewhere.
I am hoping too we go after another striker before the loan window closes on August 31st, otherwise, we could be in for a very long season.
