If we're buying a Crewe forward, it should be Charlie Kirk. We need a competent LW and he's able. Young, played well down the left with Pickering, £600k release clause. Easy to sort for me.

Get it done Joe! 😁

Armstrong scored 20 goals aged about 18/19. This lad has 12 goals aged 22.

Dack had been League One Player of the Year.

These are not appropriate comparisons. These players were performing in the same league as him, but on another level.

You nicely make my point for me: not the league, but their capabilities.  Thanks.

I don't know if you're trying to be clever, but yes that is the point I'm making.

Going off the stats (which people are when they talk about 12 goals in League One...11 in the league itself actually) he is showing less of those capabilities than the players you mentioned. Those two are good examples of how League One players can be good. This lad hasn't shown what they've shown yet. An example of how even top-rated League One players can be crap in the Championship also exists in our squad though - League One Team of the Year selectee Amari'i Bell.

To be clear, I'm in no way writing him off. But an attacker with a career-best 12 goals a level below isn't going to inspire tons of confidence when we likely need to replace an attacker with 26 goals at our own level. As ever, any real judgement will come when I see him kick a ball for us.

Another poster said he has played on the right, which as well as fitting in with Mowbray's wet dreams, may explain the goal tally a bit. For me though we need a lad for the middle. Then again, Arma played wide until he didn't, and that turned out well.

Before this season, the most Dale had scored was 5, in the Northern Premier League. Of course, he could only just be coming into his own now, 22 still means room to grow. I just hope he isn't intended as our sole Arma replacement, and that he costs a sensible fee. If we are indeed even interested.

And I'd prefer the Peterborough forward!!

Jonson Clarke Harris will not be cheap and at 26 he's pretty much developed. With TM being such a strong individual at maximising potential, I think we're better off pursuing a player with greater scope to grow so TM can make him blossom.

Does anyone think that Joe Pigott from AFC Wimbledon could be worth signing as a back up to Armstrong/new number 1 striker next season? or in possible front 2 if we play that way?

He has scored a few hasn't he, 20 plus is a good return. He is defo the type we need to look at, playing at the top of league on individually so perhaps the step up is easier. Good shout.

You can cherry pick a couple of L1's brightest prospects and potentially strike big, but build your entire transfer strategy on it and you're going down.

With that said with Mowbray at the helm we're going down regardless, so w/e.

I agree that a couple or 3 League 1 brightest prospects we could sign in summer apart from Pickering signing

Holtby on his way, not being offered a new deal according to LT.

Mowbray has said it so possibly confirms he's making the decisions for next season. 

Tony Mowbray confirms Lewis Holtby won't be offered new deal | Lancashire Telegraph

Already being downplayed/carpeted in the LT comments section.

Holtby not good enough for Rovers but Mowbray is. Yet it was Mowbray who signed him. Curious how this works.

People go on about the expense of changing manager but keeping this one will cost a few more million. Whether it's wages for frees or loan fees etc he's going to be spending something.

Better just biting the bullet and keeping this squad, change manager and watch them have a good season. Saves a fortune in the long run, as long as it works out obviously but it's the same for any player he throws money at anyway.

As for Holtby a good player but too fragile for this league, besides he's yet another who's thrown in and out according to opposition. 

Just to see that silly system end would be a blessing.

West Ham set to bid 24 million pounds for Adam Armstrong according to journalist Pedro Almeida 

https://www.hammers.news/transfer-news/journalist-makes-big-claim-about-impending-west-ham-united-move-for-adam-armstrong/

A good place to start the bidding. Really need another PL club to come in too. If we can get close to 30 it would be pretty good
