Saw Lolley play a few times for Harriers. Dont think he will ever be top draw premiership but think he could be a right nuisance for opposition teams playing against us

They'd swap him if we got them drunk enough.

We could show them the DVD of when he played against us in that 2-2 draw and convince them he's still that player.

Apparently we are back in for Giroud and are doing everything possible to resurrect the deal.

Clearly we're not having much joy looking elsewhere so right now I'd take Giroud.

I'd prefer Bowen to Giroud.

I think Bowen could be a summer move if we stay up. Giroud is by far the more proven player at the top level and will want to secure his place for France ahead of the Euro's.

Giroud would be an excellent signing, and is proven quality at this level.

Bowen is an expensive punt as no knowing how well he will step up. Would still like him to sign for us, but experience like Giroud is what the team needs. That and some muscle in midfield.

Giroud with Samatta in reserve or up top with him would be fantastic. It would also give us an edge for a few weeks as teams wouldn't know much about Samatta and how he plays.

Giroud is slow, does not like to get his hair dirty and has had about as much game time in the last couple of years as Drinky.

61 appearances since 2017. Just a few more than Drinkwater I think.
So, Iím guessing the rest of your statement is bollox as well?

It was a good way of finding out how many appearances he made thanks, do you know what shampoo he favors?

Presume Giroud would be on a 3 month deal with option and a massive bonus if he scores the goals to keep us up. He could still go to Italy afterwards.
It's a plan, of sorts.
