Wyke, Reach and Jones?!

Normally I am not one for resigning players . But needs must. Wyke and Reach, to me would improve us in the goal scoring area. Jones? Mmmmm, a lot of resentment against him for past misdemeanours. Is he a better option than the wide options?
Probably very debatable.

Not Reach, I don't think he's shown that he's a better player than when he was here. Wyke I would have back, I think he's earned the chance of moving up the league based on his L1 exploits. Jones, err nonplussed.

I'm not sure about our Chaz coming back but I certainly would have had Reach back and thought we treat him awful when we let him go.

Reach suffered from the own grown mentality of our supporters that think anyone out of the academy isn't good enough.

Jones is a bad lot.

Norman, you would know more than anyone else Re Charlie. He seems to have been finally accepted up the road having previously suffered dogs abuse on the Sunderland message boards.

Not really the sunlun fans I know all say he doesn’t do anything but score goals and we need to replace him if we go up as he’s very much a League one player and we need better.

A bit like Hickton then ? Does nowt but score goals !
Reach is a huge improvement on Johnson , and 2 years younger .
Him and Bannan just gave Cardiff a football lesson .
I would love us to out play teams instead of route one .

It's no for me for all of them. Jones is trouble had a great opportunity with Gerrard moving to Rangers and wasted it, so it would seem he hasn't learned.

Reach, he's a midtable championship player who scores the odd worldie. He doesn't have pace, he used to struggle at 60 mins for energy, and he looks a bit chunky now which isn't going to help. A proven midtable player is unlikely to push us onwards, it's not like he's a kid that'll improve,

Wyke, Sunderland fans think he's poor but been on a hot streak. He has bags of chances in a club with more resources than most league one sides put together, and has taken tehm, but can he create for himself in the championship?

Not for me.
I know you don't fancy Wyke Block21, fair enough , everyone has an opinion , so , to you and BoroMart ,who would you prefer , given a maximum £2m fee and wages around £10k ?( We may not even have £2m , unless we sell , so , free transfers ? )
Diedheiou , Collins , Michael Smith £1m, Evans are the ones likely , with
Wyke , Pigott , Charles , Yates £2m ,the ones from div 1 .
And in answer to mendieta420 , I would be happy with both Bennett and Reach .

Reach was quality today v Cardiff , with pace , skill and 2 goals . Not chunky either 😁

Would be happy with Bennett as competition for Bola. Warnock knows him and got the best out of him. Bola still first choice though. Out of the players you listed I would take Diehdhiou and Smith over Wyke. I just think Wyke is having a great season at league 1 level. He would get found out in the championship.

Norman, I asked you this before but you might not have seen it. How are you related to Charlie Wyke?

Maybe 2 from the 3 of Diedheiou , Smith , Wyke ? With a pacey one like Dion Charles , Jerry Yates , Siriki Dembele or Rhys Healey playing off one of them ?
Jorge Grant in the no10 role and you have pace and goals .
Diedheiou,Wyke, Smith
Charles , Dembele , Yates , Healey.
Grant
Wyke , Charles , Dembele ,Yates and Grant have 85 goals , 35 assists between them., goals win games , and they are young and hungry.
Corey Blackett Taylor on a free would be my 1st choice LB LWB due to age and potential , but Reach is also decent , and is proven .
