So we are 5th, with 37 points, 6 at the time of writing off 2nd and 11 off 1st. We've got a 4 point cushion from anyone outside the top 6 but we've got teams from 8th and above in our next 4 out of 5 games. We've got to this point really without 2 of our best players from last year Kodjia and Jedinak, and our other injuries along the way speak for themselves so Bruce needs major credit for where we are, had we had no injuries would be up there with possibly Cardiff? I'd say so. But looking at the squad now and who's coming back, I hope to god that their working round the clock for a goal scorer on the first of Jan. Every team needs a regular goal scorer, at the moment we've got Adomah but he's a winger and we can't rely on him, if we added someone who will score at least one every 2 games I seriously think we can still charge up to second. The sooner we find one the better; Ulloa, Ings, Nahki Wells, James Wilson, Barnes, Vokes, Long, Wickham - have all either scored goals at this level, or you'd bank on them scoring regular. You add that to our team and we're getting 3/ 4 every week, and in the big games against the better teams we've got a threat upfront. Davis has been a revelation this season and the way he holds the ball up and battles has been paramount to our success, but if he could score aswell we'd be pushing second, and until he finds his scoring form we won't be reaching higher than play offs.

Chris I agree with your post 100%
My choice of striker is alloa.
If Bruce gets the right one in we will be there abouts come end of season,
But play like we did on Saturday you can forget it
Very disappointed with that display and if millwall had won they deserved it,
I wish Bruce would get o'hare more involved,
With gabby nearly back into squad o'hares chances of every being involved with get less and less,
But next 4 games will tell us where we could end up at end of season,

Add Lewis grabban as another striker I would take,

Out of the names mentioned I'd go for Wickham

We should be looking further away to find a goal scorer. Other clubs find quality players to take on loan so why can't AVFC?
Sometimes I wonder if we still suffer from Lerneritus and are reluctant to ask about certain players.
When did we last get a player that was a valued first team player?
We lost a team of players to predators and ok they wanted to go, but we should be expecting our management to be doing better.
Bruce has bought in many players that there clubs were reluctant to release, Kodjia, Lansbury etc .
However none are starlight players.
Other championship clubs are grabbing younger players on loan and we should be in there.
I would like to say "we are AVFC" but at present it means nothing, it's almost a curse. It also means we will pay inflated fees.
Do we have a list of targets? I hope so.
We have in our ranks players that could carry us up to the prem, and I want that well before I take my last breath.
So come on Bruce and other decision makers, remove your digit and get us a headliner to find the net on a re gulag basis.
Ffp will hold us back so get rid of the no hopes and get our younger players into play and an "Andy Gray" to lead us.

Good post Oldvillan, I agree totally.
One point I feel needs addressing just as much is our midfield, we desperately need a ball player/ playmaker too feed our front men.
If we don`t sort these area`s we will fall short come the seasons end.

Hourihane was signed for that but he’s always too deep, when he gets forward he unlocks doors. Same with Lansbury. When we play 2 midfielders with a number 10 the two mids end up sitting back, should look to play Jedinak/ Whelan and then Hourihane and Lansbury and give one of them the number 10 role.
