Tbf he came and played during lockdown with no crowds , barely any fan interaction or massive welcome , warnock certainly never built him up and clearly wasnt a fan. Lad probs never felt loved.
Also, He probs one of those that needs pressure of crowds or atmosphere to perform at his best.
Would not have felt welcome if he read this board!!

Yeah wish nothing bad on him he’s just not good enough for us unfortunately. Hopefully the couple more strikers we bring in do the business and are more suited. I think Ikpeazu is promising so far although it’s early days of course
He’s not what we were after unfortunately.. we wanted Keiffer Moore. I think Chubba is a canny player and works really hard for the team, we needed a 1 in 3 target man who could get on the end of crosses and hold up play. Ikpeazu is much closer to that player.

I wish Chubba all the best and am sorry it didn’t work out how he may have wanted. Who knows with a crowd behind him it could have been a different story.

Couldnt agree Akpom worked hard forthe team. Easily our most anonymous player last season and we had Britt last year. Almost sounds like a compliment, no ones better than you chuba. Agree no malice and hope has success elsewhere but best for him to loof for a new challenge and give us a chance to improve upfront

With that logic Rudy was a goal a game man at one point in his career before he got one of his many injuries.
alright 1 in 4 JEEZ! 172 career appearances and 42 goals. 28 in 102 for boro.. started off slow and then got injured. (Rudy scored 8 in 71 for boro)

the point I was trying to make is that Josh Maja would be a competent replacement for Ashley Fletcher 22 years old performed at a higher level and would be capable of being a 1 in 3 striker at championship level imo

1 in 5 at prem level in a struggling side and round about 1 in 4 in Ligue 1

AH FCUK IT Paul Mulin was 1 in 1.4 at League two level last season.. lets go for him at 26yo see how he fares in the champo

Uche Ikpeazu, Michael Smith & Paul Mullin?

Nathanial Mendez-Laing was near enough Jed Wallace's level last season 1 in 6 lets get him in too. Pretty sure Junior Holliet can pull in as man as Yannick Bolasie managed and why have Patrick Roberts in your squad when you can have Kadeem Harris.. much much more effective and can play an number of positions.

Rodrigo Muniz? may as well hold out for Liam Delap or similar.

You are right - we need at least one more goalie....
Good morning btw.
