…well that is the thought anyway – a striker will arrive during this transfer window! Not my vote, yours – although these findings from pompeyrug’s poll are thoughts that I would degree with.

Since the summer we had been hoping to see a real goalscoring striker arrive, yep have we signed strikers since but none have been that ‘out and out goalscorer’ that we are looking for, and what Harry Redknapp has said he hopes to get.

If we can get this striker – which if we do not it will not be the end of the world of course – then I think our chances of making it into Europe at the end of the season will be at an all time high.

The draw back is this kind of player will not come cheap; the big question is do we have the finances to fund such a move?

What the poll asked – Will we sign a striker this month?

How you voted – Yes 76%, No 24%

Current Poll – Whilst most of us tend to agree that we need a striker, not all share this view entirely.

A striker would be very nice, as already said, but could we maybe make do with what we have – and will have after the African nations – and is a playmaker really a higher priority – this is what 007 – who did not exactly submit this poll, but put the idea into my head – wants to know with this – ‘what do we need more a striker, or is it a playmaker that is really needed?’ Let the poll do the talking before we do when it finishes.
