So the latest rumour is we want to buy Dougie Freedman. Good history as a striker but another oldie at 34. The key point here is we currently have the following:


Not to forget

Foran (ok might be a bit more of a leftie midfield but im sure he made his name as a striker)

So thats 7 strikers for 2 spots. Dougie would make 8.

What is the fascination with buying strikers when the glaring requirement is for wide and central midfield players. Surely the time to buy a striker is when we are creating lots of chances and not putting them away - not when we are creating few chances and leaving forwards up front alone??
