Going into the next 15 games with 1 recognised striker fit would be lunacy.

You are probably right.

Going into the next 15 games and a relegation scrap with El Ghazi, Trez and Jota as your wing options is not exactly the most sane decision either. As i've said before, we've been playing with out and out wingers since Bruce came so around 3 and half years and we've had one consistantly decent one in that time, Snodgrass. The rest have shown flickers of quality here and there at best and have been largely shite.

I know it's only a rubbish rumour but Sturridge for £5M would be OK if I thought he was no more likely to get injured than anyone else.

Davis and he would be playing rock paper scissors for the physio table.

He wouldn't be Daniel Sturridge. It's a lovely thought to imagine all these potential players who have had injuries and could come back and do brilliant job at a bargain price but it very, very rarely happens.

I'm not concerned that we won't get a striker. I'm sure there's a handful they're waiting on. Giroud isn't going to go unless Chelsea get a CF.

It'll go to the wire but I'm sure we'll get one.

Has Sturridge been playing? How’s he been doing out there?  This would be great if it wasn’t for the enormous amount of baggage that came with him. I file under ‘B’ too.  I can’t see Smith going for it.

19/20   Knock   Jan 10, 2020   Jan 27, 2020   17 days   4 games missed
19/20   Muscle Injury   Dec 8, 2019   Dec 13, 2019   5 days   2 games missed
19/20   Calf muscle strain   Nov 24, 2019   Nov 29, 2019   5 days   1 game missed
19/20   Thigh muscle rupture   Oct 28, 2019   Nov 24, 2019   27 days   5 games missed
19/20   Groin Injury   Oct 23, 2019   Oct 25, 2019   2 days   1 game missed
19/20   Achilles tendon problems   Sep 22, 2019   Sep 26, 2019   4 days   1 game missed

So he's been there 6 months. Picked up 6 minor injuries and missed 14 games at various times because of them. In other words, he's still Daniel Sturridge and complete waste of everyones time except for the Physio team.

DS said during the Brentford-Leicester game we still wanted another striker so it's still very much a priority despite signing Sammatta.

Would be amazed if we don't sign anyone this week but then I was saying the same on 27th August!

Bloody hell, that's ridiculous.  Any club would have to be nuts to go anywhere near him.

He's the same old Sturridge. Looks immense when he plays, which is probably something like 1 game in 10.

Definitely not what we need, and certainly not to the tune of £5m (plus whatever ridiculous wages he'll command) when finances are tight.

I'd take him for free on a pay as you play basis in addition to Samatta and someone else.

And why not 2 more wingers, a attacking mid, two centre mids, a couple more CBS a full back and a tea boy while we are at it?
