    Default Britt Assombalonga

    Pearce at the Peterborough v Carlisle game today apparently. Talk of strikers must mean he was looking at Britt Assombalonga. Highly rated but wouldn't be cheap I guess. Doubt P'boro would be keen to do business with us but money talks.

    Suppose we have to hope Posh will fail in the play-offs, but they'd still want a fair whack for him I feel. Apparently he's their record signing at over £1m. So I can see them wanting £3m+ for him, as they will point to their record of improving strikers and selling on for a big profit.

    Id we could agree a fee, I'd be very happy with him. He's the sort of player who still has a lot to learn, but can be unplayable.

    He was at Cov yesterday as well. Looks like he's after some lower league gems

    Hope he's keeping an eye on freebies too. Would hate to see a lower league gem get bought for a lot of money, and crumble under the pressure of that.

    Could work the other way I suppose.

    It's a yes from me, for his name alone. Must be some great song possibilities.

    We only win when Pearce isn't watching.

    Problem here is that Peterborough are going to be in the play-offs. They have won three our of three when they've been there. It should be called the 'Peterborough United play-off system (designed for people who also like laughing at Forest)'. So they're going up. They won't need to sell. And Forest are the last club MacAnthony would agree to sell to anyway.

    This fills me with a lot of confidence. Precisely the types of player we should be going for.

    Can't wait till next season!

    Britt Assombalonga would be a great signing. Superb talent with a lot going for him. It excites me that this is the type of player we are looking at.

    That name is pretty awesome. Not only has the surname got all kinds of rude, but the first two syllables easily become Brittass too.

    Cost a bob or two at 75p a letter though.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Are we actually looking at him or is this just another dodgey rumour?

    All true, but business is business, show him the money and Britt would be ours.

    He's the type of signing we should make but rarely ever do or if we do we never cater for their strengths.

    He looks alright. Seems to know where the satchel is. 3/4m though? Nah

    Plays on the shoulder of the last defender. Pace to burn. Good finisher.
    We haven't had a striker like this for years, and he'd be perfect for the current pedestrian side.

    Maybe we should just sign Peterboro's striker scout though?
