Blackman scored 11 goals before Christmas.

Blackman found himself in a position where anything he touched went in, then his luck dried up and he hadn't scored for 3 months before we signed him.

Waghorn did it consistently all season.

The assists added to the goals he scored makes it more impressive.

that was when he had his flash in the plan and we spunked cash on him. Waghorn as been scoring goals regularly. plus Waghorn gives us work rate, a work rate that his higher than the current forwards on our books apart from marriott (he has not played yet so judgment is with held)  Waghorn also supplys goals to other players and as a decent freekick plus the new manager wants him and thinks he will complement the way he wants to play move on from the other forwards on the books a few will be shipped out very soon

I’m getting the feeling we are buying too many... I’ve backed all of Franks buys so far and I was behind this one when I thought Vydra was off to Leeds but we will have a squad of about 35 players when this completes with no one interested in any of our players.... I can see this going wrong because we don’t seem to be buying any sort of balance, we could do with a competitive player for Bryson’s role and a full back. Waghorn is definitely a good player in the championship but where does he play I know he can play on the wing cutting in on his left but I’m also excited about Wilson. It looks as if we are trying to buy our success again rather than investing in the shrewd signings we have made so far.  However I would be much happier if we could get some strikers off our books as well.

You’re not paying the wage bill are you? Players will go do not worry ...none of us know how much interest there is in any of our players but you have to trust Mel and Frank

This is a really exciting time to be a rams fan ....enjoy it 👍🏻Let Mel sort out the finances and Frank the squad 👍🏻

Waghorn would be our first choice striker, it's already been reported previously that this would be the case with Marriott as back up as he is seen as more of a long term investment. That then leaves 1 of Nugent, Jerome, Vydra + Martin as 3rd choice, my choice would be Jerome.

When we played Ipswich away last season he was easily their best player and put in some brilliant crosses. Our fans gave him lots of stick that day - not sure why. I’m delighted he’s joining us but it does signal the end for Nugent, Jerome and Martin. 

The energy of our strikeforce is going to be crucial to the way Lampard wants to play and now he has lots of options.

No fickleness here @jimbobram

I think the same as yesterday, not impressed by this one little bit! For exactly the same reasons given yesterday  

Happy to be proved wrong, but at this point my opinion is unequivocally unimpressed by this just as yesterday and before. 

That's fair enough Ted but it wasn't what the poster said

You need two top strikers to get out of this league, I'm not sure that it's a case of 'first choice' rather Marriott and Waghorn will be competing for the start each week. The way Mason Bennett has been praised of late makes me think he's our third choice striker for the season.

You're probably right that its between Marriott + Waghorn but I would expect Waghorn to be our main striker. The issue with Marriott, Waghorn + Bennett is that they're all pretty similar style of player, for me our 3rd choice needs to give us a different option. Bennett can play anywhere across the front 3 so is a good option to have.

|Mason Bennet this season has looked completly different. We always knew he had potential but now im hoping we are actually going to see this. His cross was superb and he brought the energy that you need for the last 10-15 minuites of the game. think hell get a lot of playing time under Frank

Our accountants should get in the team of the season if we avoid FFP.

I guess they better get creative for now haha. 

Why are you worrying your pretty little head about such things, dear?
