Yes, Costa or Klich area, would be a great addition but as you say a striker needed too, I’d be happy with him and Sharpe and even happier with him and Adams

Jarrod Bowen would be an outstanding addition. Maybe not the out and out striker that was on the agenda but he really knows how to score, he knows the league and he has current form.

He has two good feet for shooting, scores with his head, scores from set pieces......... this is really like an ideal (and really expensive) transfer. If we get him, we’re going up!

Far too good to be true, will believe this one when he's signed on the dotted line and not before. YEP saying there's nothing in it too alas. Starting to get a bit nervous about all of this. Off to QPR on Sat and would love some positive transfer news before KO.

Sharp wouldn't be my choice he is 33 and don't think we should be signing players at the end of their career. Yes sometimes it works out (Strachan) but often it doesn't.

I know its only speculation. So that would be £30m in IOU's at the end of the season. Its got to be a green light from QSI? No! :shifty:

If its £3m loan and then he goes back to Hull at the end of the season, its a none starter. Why would Hull aid our promotion bid and then Bowen leaves on a free if it fails?

Some like that, coming off the bench in tight games, would be a great addition on a 6 month contract but definitely not on any longer term contract. He knows where the goal is.

Not necessarily QSI. If we’re promoted then it’s not an issue. Otherwise it’s Philips + to cover the debts :o

It’s probably coming to decision time on whether you gamble or not.

After initially being against the Sharp transfer i am now a little torn tbh. He could come in and do for us what Austin does at WB. Whether Sharp would want to swap one bench for another is doubtful. I would imagine he may want a guarantee of playing before he comes to a decision. If indeed he leaves at all.

And then Phillips gets a bad injury in the last game of the playoffs and we fail to go up. Now that is a gamble. :D I would love he lad to come tbh. Big commitment on another winger tho, maybe we have offered a straight swap for Costa?
