    I think you can if they don't get enough time and get frustrated and then unsettled.

    If Grabban is to be our 20 goal man, he needs 35-40 games at least. That doesn't give much chance to others in 1 man strike force. Brereton is clearly liked by AK and will benefit from coming off the bench, probably to replace Grabban with 20 to go. Murphy there for a different option.

    I don't think you can keep another 1 happy when there's only 1 place up for grabs. Other options need to be a versatile player like a Soudani in my eyes.

    You can't expect goals from a striker if they don't get a proper chance, someone like a Marriott for example, needs to be backed as the no.9, much like Grabban does. Don't think two of them, plus different options can thrive.

    Murphy, Soudani and Brereton would be a bloody great battering ram of a forward 3. Last ten minutes of a game they would mince defenders at set pieces.

    Tell that to Cummings, Walker and Vellios! 3 CF + Soudani is plenty. I still have a sneaky feeling we might try for Tomlin on loan towards the end of the window as we've only got Carvalho as a specialist 10.

    Excluding a right back, I think anymore incomings will depend on who we sell.

    If we ship all of the bomb squad and maybe a Murphy/Bridcutt out I think we will get another fairly big signing.

    Tomlin is fairly big think it might be him.

    100% agree with this.

    If Grabban gets injured then we've got Soudani, where the general consensus from a few Algerians I've seen post on various forums being he's a little lightweight to lead the line on his own, and then we're back to Brereton up top as I've got little hope of Murphy coming good again.

    Theres a sizeable reliance on Grabban for goals, if he flops, I dont see a contingency in this department.

    Murphy & Brereton probably not prolific enough, Soudani unproven. Id just like to see a striker who's scored freely in English conditions in there.

    Cover all the bases.

    Don't think there is a huge reliance on Grabban because we have so many options just behind him.

    I do get your point though, but it won't be as desperate as last year if we have to call upon Brereton or Murphy because there will be firepower elsewhere.

    Like I said, I think we are fine for now, but reassess in January.

    You've got to hope that AK changes the approach play this season. We have a wealth of options on the wing now and I see Graban as the archetypal 'fox in the box' striker who will feed off the ball coming in from the wing. Lumping it up the middle may be OK for the likes of Murphy to hold up and BB never really showed in this respect. Attacking quality balls in from the wing may suite BB's game far more.
    As for Lockyer, according to this he hasn't featured at RB for Rovers for some time. That doesn't sound like a decent cover solution for TD.

    Difficult to get someone who has scored freely to agree to essentially play second fiddle to Grabban, particularly as it appears AK isn't going to change his formation to two/three up top unless we're in the last 15 mins or so.

    I see the point about having to rely on Murphy or Brereton as a fallback , but considering the investment in the positions behind the forwards the thinking clearly has to be goals are going to come from elsewhere. Whereas last year the reliance was really on Mckay, Dowell and, in the latter stages, Tomlin. All of whom we've hopefully improved on (may still acquire Tomlin)
