Bloody hell, if Davisí record doesnít already scream it, letís be very honest. He isnít a Prem - or even Championship for that matter - striker in a million years. Willing worker, yes and probably a real pain to mark for his physicality but he doesnít score goals, which is a key flaw in the plan for a striker.

I know he hasnít, and wonít, but if playing him allowed 5 of the wingers and midfielders to hit double figures heíd be a worthwhile option.

but he won't do that either. We need so much better than Wes Samatta and Davis.

Looking at the clips he looks excellent receiving and keeping the ball. Very silky.

We can sell him now and retire his shirt number

Great news, he's one of 3-4 that I can see being involved with the first team through the season.

Thereís no room for a shirt number, not with all those letters in his name

Still have a lot of holes to fill in the side for next season, so it may be a case of having to prioritise.  Key areas for me are experienced players to partner Mings and Luiz respectively (though Konsa had a good end to the season).  Then it has to be a quality striker, wide player and possibly an attacking midfielder, in that order.

I'm still far from convinced by our full backs, but we may need to prioritise other areas. 
I suppose arguing about the order of priority is a bit academic, but I'm amazed you think a centre back is more important to us than strikers and wide players.  Surely those are the biggest holes in our squad?

Flog Wes and Samatta. 

Add £100m and buy two quality strikers to rotate with Davis.   Davis will come good.  Itís a confidence thing. 

Also flog Trez and AEG and buy one proper pacey winger. 

Simple this football lark. 

See itís interesting, and Iím genuinely not having a go, but why couldnít Wesleyís issues be down to confidence and why is Davis a better bet? Personally Iíve seen more in Wesley than in Davis.
Agreed, altohugh I'd agree that he is not the answer (on his own) to our goals-challenge.

Agreed.

Very short memories. Wesley offered nothing as a lone front man. Couldnít hold the ball up, got muscled out of most things and often just fell to floor and pretended to be injured. He was awful barring 3 games!
At least Davis give us something. 
If we can get anywhere near our money back for Wesley then we should sell, learn from our mistakes and try again!

I'd agree with that amendment. Archer and Barry are 2 of the players I have in the group which is why I don't like the idea of 2 more strikers coming in.

Wesley wonít be going anywhere due to his injury. Earliest would be January and even that may be too soon.
