Was just talking to my son and was finding it hard to think the last time we had a strike force of this calibre. I apologise if I've got their ages and contract lengths wrong, but hope you get the idea

Cox - by far one of the best strikers we've had in years, 31 and signed on for 2 years

Fortune - proved many wrong, hard working and brings others in to play, 35, deserving of 18 month contract

Robinson - brings pace to the forward line and a different dimension, 29 and signed on 2 year contract

Nouble - no doubt has qualities, are we the club he finally settles at, time will tell, but at 25 needs a club to prove his worth, 6 months to prove himself

Mooney - feel a bit sorry for him, but doubt he will be offered a new contract, and way off those mentioned above
Williams - simply not good enough, bye bye in the summer

Then there is Mr R. No doubting his qualities as a footballer, at 25, age on his side. Offered a 3 year contract, so PB had belief in him. Can't deny he has shot himself in the foot, time will tell whether he stays or goes. Hard to see him coming back from another set back, and u feel the next one is around the corner. If he stays then we still have ourselves a very good striker. Would probably mean the end for Nouble in the summer. But what PB has done is build a very good strike force, on contracts beyond this season meaning that in the summer it's one area less to worry about, maybe might need one more depending on Ranger/Nouble. For that I applaud PB
