Same old, same old. When will this club realise we need strikers?

We don't need strikers. we created enough chances but failed to capitalise, Gabbiadini and Austin are more than good enough. I think we need a flair Mane type player, really should've won today.

Lol knew it would be one of the new posts
"We need strikers strikers strikers"
I think we need to sell tadic and buy a creative/ attacking midfielder/ number 10 that picks up 8-10 goals a season. You can't just rely on strikers. I wasn't at the game but reports show we battered Swansea, were a bit unlucky and that tadic missed a sitter or 2. If he steps foot near a penalty this season I will take him out lol.
I'm not usually one for saying this or that person should be got rid of. but he is frustrating.

We don't need more strikers. we need the rest of the team to chip in and goals from other areas. ie midfield!

I had hoped a new manager would mean that Tadic would grow up! a very frustrating player who has not improved one bit in all the time he has been here. Redmond, happy to eat my words . he has definitely adjusted his game . not so greedy, is looking to pass quicker .
WE played good football.
It was not a case of will we ever score, but more when will we score!
as it turned out, we hit the woodwork and missed the goal by inches on maybe a dozen occasions!

I think we'll have a game where things click and they start going in for us. No need for a striker as I dot think we can get anyone who's much of an upgrade on Gabbi or Austin.

They need better service and couldn't agree more that our biggest need is an exciting winger/ attacking midfielder. In an ideal world boufal would be that guy but not sure we can rely on that. Would like to see boufal get a proper run of games in tadic's place though, I thought he looked better yesterday and seemed much stronger and less willing to be bullied.

Roberts permanently or someone similar would be a good addition, unless they think sims is good enough.
