    Dunno much about this fella but we certainly need more presence up front. Grabbon has his strengths but it’s annoying that he doesn’t compete with centre backs when balls in air-lets then have a hit at it. We need pace and strength.

    Wycombes top scorer and second top assister - and underperformed his xG by 0.54. Overpeformed on assists tho.

    Be interested to see how many goals he scored from corners, as Joe Jacobson had a really good set piece in him.

    I’m sure I bought him on Fifa14 or something.

    Do you have a sell on clause?

    Unfortunately not. I foolishly put in a clause for goal scoring instead.

    Perhaps a little raw but he'll offer us something different.

    Raw? I’ve eaten sushi that wasn’t as raw.

    „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.”

    He seemed to take an age to set himself before striking the ball for that goal.

    A team with a half decent defence would have the ball off him and be attacking the other end before his foot made contact.

    Guess what? Those goals were scored in the Division we play in. Let's not get carried away, that we need Messi and Lewandowski to improve us. We need options, and a bulldozer sometimes works.

    Never seen anything of the player outside the above snippets. Gut feeling, he'll be clumsy as fuck & likely trip over the ball more times than contribute anything meaningful. Thats says more about our recruitment policy than the player btw.

    In two minds all told, apparently he's underperforming his XG (What?), but then Berkshire red fancies it so he must be fucking brilliant .

    That's OK then.

    He'll get a shedload of chances every game the way we play.

    as long as he doesn't cost a lot , he'll be useful as a battering ram option. after all , he's wycombe sucessor to that other big lump , akinfenwa

    Hey, I'm just saying he'd be worth a put. I wouldn't expect him to be our leading scorer but he'd add something we haven't had up front for ages, strength and power. Doubt he'd be expensive and he's no near retirement.

    If we are signing a striker then I'd prefer blistering pace than a battering ram. Defenders hate pace and they would rather get bashed up than go up against pace. More than thag, pace will get you in behind more often than trying to bulldoze people. A massive no from me.

    We're in need of more than one new striker. If this guy is the only one then I'd say "No" too!

    Hughtons not averse to going direct & he wants a viable target to get on the end of crosses. Also worth bearing in mind we're not spraying the ball about enough to suggest we're going to connect with a pacy striker with any regularity. That may change with the recruitment in the coming weeks, but until then this player looks to fit the dynamic.

    Looks too Diakhaby esque in his execution though, brain & feet totally at odds.

    Don't fancy it personally, surely we can do better.

    If this is a find of our new recruitment team I am probably going to be a little bit less optimistic about it all

    I'd be more inclined to assume that it's the usual case of lazy media fabrication, or an agent using Forest and whoever else to drum-up interest from elsewhere for his client.

    Or we have someone lined up but who is dithering about signing, the club gets this in the press about a possible alternative to get the real target off his arse and down the WFCG for a Randall photoshoot.
