    Where's he going to play in our system? Don't we need a Baka type playing the central role?

    Durham (Posh fan) and Goughie (Barnsley fan) we’re suggesting on TalkSPORT earlier that Toney is being looked at by Barnsley.

    Fry has always been notorious for this
    In earlier years he sometimes bought and sold players again within weeks, especially in the days before strict transfer windows when they could be sold at any time in the season
    Some managers had deals where they received a percentage of any profits on player sales
    Don't know if this is still the case but Fry loves to boast of the profits he makes for his club through his wheeler dealing

    Strikes me as a Bakayoko type deal. Never in a million years is / was he our number 1 target, but he was available, and an incomer was needed.

    Fortunately Baka hasn’t turned out as badly as he could have (I for one thought he was going to be sent packing even before he got started after Robins’ first post match comments), so who knows!

    Just don’t think Robins will be given the funds to go out & get who he wants I can see a young loan coming in.If we are going to play 433 who ever plays in that striker role has to be able to hold the ball up at least,out of the strikes we have its only max I feel can do this.

    I think if we secured Matt Godden Bakayoko might be moved on still nearly a month to go for loans for leagues one and two, not sure about permanent just can’t see us having Baka, Biamou and Godden

    I think we'd keep all 3 whilst Max is getting back to full fitness. Robins is only going to give him cameo appearances for the next month or two I would have thought?

    Don't know a lot about him but 18 goals is 18 goals. Sounds like he should score a few.

    Hmm, it doesn't feel like a player that has been scouted for a long time, just a bit of a panic signing. That said, his record looks decent. We shall see.

    Isn't that one of those sites that just spews out regurgitated rumours?

    18 Goals after being in and out with Toney all season, will be an upgrade on what we have atm

    He'll have been scouted surely? What are you basing the feeling on? Genuine question.

    Reassuring that other teams were in for him. Other than his goals do we know if he’s any good?

    It's just a feeling, not based on anything particularly rational apart from him being 28 and older than our usual permanent signings.

    That said, you could say the same about McFadzean.

    Seems like he’s had a difficult pre-season too.

    Could well be. He'd need to score 18 goals to get 18 though. Can he do it?

    Isn't that a bit like saying 'Besides knocking everyone out, was Mike Tyson a good boxer?'

    So far I’ve seen:

    Mother’s funeral
    Sickness
    New born baby
    Carrying a minor niggle


    Could all just be excuses for him wanting to leave but either way he isn’t going to be match fit just yet.

    Ha! Yeah I guess. Just meant his all round play. Is he more like Inzaghi or Ronaldinho?

    With a splash of Messi and Lampard

    I'm sure Godden would have been on the list, albeit behind Walker.
    But 18 goals last season at this level is good and Robins has a nack of improving players.

    Out of interest, would people have preferred Walker (younger, unproven at this level) or Godden (at the peak of his potential).

    I'm happy for this, let's look at it logically, we all wanted mcnulty and walker who have very little experience in league 1 (I wanted them too) and should be delighted we've got a lad who actually has done well at this level albeit 1 season
