Watching Brentford last night, I was thinking about pace. Some of their passing was beautiful, and cut through the defence to players who were just in the right position, so pace really didn't matter. And then, towards the end when legs were tired, they played a couple of defence splitting balls just past the halfway line and the quicker players would gallop onto it. Pace gives a few extra options, and we aren't blessed with the quickest players right now.

One of our biggest assets is our passing all over the pitch, how many chances did Hawula miss from good well worked positions if this Jackson has blistering pace and can finish he might dovetail into our team well.

I think some pace would be well needed, and I'm not sure our formation we used last season is attacking enough for The Championship. Anyway, here are his stats:

He’s a good player wouldn’t be coming here to sit on the bench. Would be an upgrade on Bakayoko and Biamou and possibly Godden too
Not sure. We’ve heard he can’t play as the lone striker, which is what we played with last season. We know Godden can do that. I’d imagine we’d at least start the season with the same formation. He sounds like he’d be an option if we then want to change it. But, I’m no Robins, so all that is just guessing!

We heard that with Chaplin also hopefully if we do sign him we use him correct just can’t see us going 2 up front maybe he could be good on a roll behind when needed with O’Hare behind Godden

We have played two up top a little last year, mainly Max and Baka together. If your two strikers are hard workers, then you don't lose much compared to the box formation.

A year ago if we'd signed him to lead our promotion charge we'd be happy. Now we're not happy with him helping our survival? Doesn't really make sense. Look at it another way we're taking better players from the big guns in the league below, we are growing in stature again!

He’s better than Bakayoko and Biamou but wouldn’t pay a significant fee for him if that’s what they want. You would think there would be a similar calibre of a player available on a free
