Legitimately the most unexciting signing ever but we're desperate for another striker.

Due to them sorting their move for his replacement I guess.

I hope he's at least replacing Murphy or Rivs. Though, thinking about it, there's no way we sign another striker after this.

Ideal upgrade on Murphy and probably Mitro. Think he will surprise a few, very good in the air.

Total of 12 games, stoke fans seem to think he's good and deserved much more from Hughes.

Legitimately the most unexciting signing ever but we're desperate for another striker.

I've been far less excited for signings then this like, I mean think about some of the s*** we've signed in the past.

Have no idea how good he is, but we need a striker badly, so yay?

5 goals in 9 starts & 11 apps (892 minutes), so his goals per minutes record was Gayle at Palace-like.

1 every 260 minutes or so with Stoke, so like Gayle, will be interesting to see if he can carry that as a first-choice.

It was apparent yesterday we need a big striker. Rafa clearly doesnt fancy Mitrovic.

141 games since 2012. 39 goals. 1 in 3.

Not a signing anyone will be massively buzzing over, but will give him a chance and see what he can do. If he scores 8 goals and helps keeps us up, fair enough.

Just hope we dont lumber ourselves with him on a long contract with big money a la Riviere, Saivet etc.
404 games, 206 goals. Nobody better.

Morata Mk II.
"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

Can't say I've heard much about him, he's a body in a position that we need though and that's is what matters. A CAM, and a LB and I'll be happy with the window.

I'm surprised how disappointed a lot of the Stoke fans are at his potential departure.  90% of the posts on their forum seem to rate him, although the negatives are that he is not particularly strong and not a lone striker, but good with both feet and in the air

Rewatching his first goal away at the Bernabeu last season is enough for me to be pleased with this.

So we've bought someone who isn't a lone striker, to play in a system which only ever uses a lone striker? Something doesn't add up there.
