From Stevie G. He spoke to Windass about moving and Josh told him he wants to be a proper number 9. Gerrard told him he couldn’t guarantee him a permanent berth as striker so he has signed for us. Has Cookie told the lad he will be used solely as a 9 otherwise why would he have joined us if his chances were no better than at Ibrox.10 August 2018 at 2:33 pm #171001The EggChairman

I read that as welll.
I would imagine he is going to play the lone striker role but whether that puts him ahead of Grigg or not I don’t know.10 August 2018 at 3:11 pm #171002I read that as welll.

Or is Cookie planning on twin strikers if and when necessary. Surely Will gets the nod when fit. Of course we could lose Cole and maybe even Vaughan before the window shuts properly but it seems strange to sign 2 strikers making 5 in all if your gonna play one up top on his lonesome. Cookie knows what he is doing I’m sure of it.COYL10 August 2018 at 3:34 pm #171003the otterPlayer

Cook says we have injuries for tomorrow and that there’ll be changes. Maybe Grigg is one of the injured players.10 August 2018 at 4:12 pm #171006Donnys PagePlayer

It could be we could have a side out soon that doesn’t resemble the side that clinched the title at Doncaster.
Maybe in the cup at Rotherham we won’t see any of the side from that day and even at Villa less than half of that side may be playing.
Some big pressure for places all over the park now. No room for any inconsistency or complacency. That’s the way it needs to be at this level.10 August 2018 at 4:19 pm #171007Cook says we have injuries for tomorrow and that there’ll be changes. Maybe Grigg is one of the injured players.
Could well be otter but Windass and Garner haven’t come on the cheap. These lads have been targeted for a reason. If we just had injuries surely Vaughan or Cole just steps in. Powell can also play up top if needed. Exciting ain’t it having a decent squad lol.10 August 2018 at 4:26 pm #171008horcManager

We are in the enviable position now of having decent first team quality players that can’t even get a place on the bench.
With the loan and Scottish market still open I can see a few being loaned and/or sold yet.10 August 2018 at 5:22 pm #171011runcornfan1978Player

Well Grigg was no great shakes last Saturday and he does lack pace at this level I reckon. Hope I’m proved wrong !!!11 August 2018 at 1:04 am #171013GoalsGalorePlayer

Lack pace??!! He fair shot out of the blocks aka Usain Boltlike to keep the ball away from Kyle Walker. No dawdling there. But I don’t know if that was Div 1 or Prem level.
