    Hey, it wasn't my inital point and I don't really agree with it. I made that point to you on CricSim in August last year and you explained to me what the deal was. Even called Sturridge leaving IIRC. But whatever may happen, you have 7 strikers on your books at ther moment.

    And I see Kris Boyd clearly going for a gradual step up in quality of league rather than show himself up by going to the Premier league...
    Considering the amount of games played last season compared to all the City strikers I have down Berbatov, Rooney, Owen, Hernandez, Welbeck, Macheda and Diouf.

    Hernandez is unproven, and probably one for a season or two (him and Macheda, who's still not really ready for the big stage. Owen is injury prone and will probably look for more regular football elsewhere now he's at least 1 further down the pecking order. Berbatovs a luxury, and whilst he's nice to have, he's not consistent enough and doesnt play well enough with Rooney to base an attack around. We need 3 top strikers, and Berbatov should be the 3rd..... Then a few youngsters to cover for injuries..... Either way one injury and we dont want to have to fall back on kids

    Will see how it plays out then, if it doesn't look like he'll sign a new one I doubt they'll want to miss cashing in but I still don't think you'll see him go for anything other than a sizeable fee.

    Que? RSC and Benjani probably played less games for City than Diouf, Welbeck and Macheda played for United.

    Yeah I expect him to go for at least 15-20 mil. Nowhere near 30 though unless it's City or Madrid bidding.

    Forgot about Diouf tbh. Welbeck played a few games aye, dont expect any more than that this season, would put money on a full season out on loan (did go to Preston but then got crocked). One for the future.


    Hard to see us offloading Owen considering he's going to be coming off an injury and he did well when called upon. Hernandez's fee suggests he's going to be a first teamer. Welbeck out on loan as well as Diouf. Maybe Macheda. Berbatov only going if there's a decent offer for him.[/QUOTE]

    We'll probably see the back of Owen because he'll want a more regular game, he's down the pecking order behind Hernandez, and even further if we get another striker.

    Hernandez's fee suggests nothing, Fergie has never worried about splashing millions on a future star and not putting them into the team from the off.


    One injury upfront and were relying on the untried and young Hernandez, the inexperienced Macheda, or the half the time crocked himself Owen. Cannot sustain a push for glory without a better no 3 striker.....Really though midfield is even worse, should focus there first.

    Hernandez at 22 and playing a decent standard at Chivas is clearly going to be battling it with Owen for 3rd choice giving 4 forwards and a decent portion of games only involved one being played. I'm quite fine with him as with the friendlies I've seen in him plus WC games plus highlights of games in Mexico and reviews from people who've watched games I've not seen he's got pace, good in the air, decent touch and seems to be able to finish. Well worth giving him a chance.
