I'm all for this. The sight of half-a-dozen Newcastle shirts when I have a kick-about in New York is exactly what I want.

What's HTT gonna do if we sign an actual Mexican?

Start a hilarious in-joke about him being Brazilian?

How many proven 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 strikers of a decent age are there about at the moment?
Are there any that are realistically going to come to us?

If you mean risk free under say under 27 and already playing in the premier league then no chance and no one I also would suggest if your a 1 in 2 striker you will already be at a "next level" club on great wages so unless its something like falling out with a manager your unlikely to get one unless you unearth a gem.

If you mean going for someone either older (that we would hands down dismiss in the past) or someone from the other leagues who may move for a wage boost and there being a risk they do not replicate the same form I would argue there must be players out there like that.

Especially if we have an increased budget for that position as a lot of times our unwillingness to go for older or pay a premium have led to us dismiss players. 

Agree with this. Should be able to pick up a 30-32 yr old striker of pedigree for a reasonable price, especially post-Covid where clubs will be keen to get some income. Players in their early 30s are still in their prime, but often clubs want to move them on so they can invest in younger talents.

its important to weigh up positive and negatives you don't want journeymen you don't want to be offering long deals to 32/33 year olds on massive wages as you cannot shift them.

Accepting your not going to turn a profit on an older player but that's not to say a 30/31/32 year old cannot add value to your squad.

If the big clubs move onto the next 22/23 year old break out star that should be leaving an ideal opportunity to take their older stars finding themselves down the pecking order.

If we can get that and the next big thing as well then great but all about being realistic and still a little cautious in our signings.

His nickname is also Chucky? :lol:
"What is a club in any case?
Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city.
It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love." – Sir Bobby Robson

If we do get taken over - think we could really have some steals in the market with the pressure on ownership clubs.

I think the genuine class players are still going to cost a fair bit of money, but we'll be one of the few clubs prepared to pay a bit over the top. Whether that's fees or wages. I'm thinking deals similar to the Ibrahimovic one to Man U.

Your rep is for 1000 word essays man, stick to that and leave the Mexican jokes quietly to one side henceforth.  O0

Does Gotze have a club he's signing for or is he just leaving Dortmund? I don't think he'd be a bad shout.

Doesn't Gotze have some health condition which caused him lots of injuries in the past or is he fully over that?

He’s well past in. Don’t be fooled by his age. He’s had proper health issues and he’s not remotely the player hw was.

Would take Shaqiri if the takeover happens. Would be a handy player for a year or two by which point you'd hope he's dropped down the pecking order after upgrades have been bought.

Would obviously take him without the takeover too but :yao:.
