Priority Number 1
After a frustrating game against Stoke where by our only two senior strikers couldnt find a way through to at least scrape us a win, the chairman must be getting the idea that as a team hoping to finish above either Arsenal or Chelsea we need a third choice upfront!
If it wasnt plain enough when Adebayor has been unavaliable to us, leaving just Defoe as an out and out front man then after a lack of strikers goals against Everton, (which was a defensive fault that we couldnt keep hold of a lucky win) or against Swansea (I'm not complaining about the result of course) and now for a third league game then it must now be plain to see. Another striker would not only take the pressure off but would allow one or the other to take a rest. Most importantly it gives us a different method of unlocking the oppositions defence.
I know I'm stating the bloody obvious but for these very important reasons Levy must back AVB in January. I personally would like us to go back in for Moutinho if Porto are prepared to do business mid season as missing out on that guy was real shame. That aside, getting a striker might not cost the earth. Theres a list of good players out there avaliable at the moment who, for what ever reason are going at £15m or less.
We all have our preferences of course and mine would be Remy. He wouldnt command massive wages, he's only 24, has pace which fits in well with our side and if AVB does decide to play 4-2-3-1 for what ever reason then he can play off the right and give Lennon a much needed break. For the amount of times we have scouted/watched this guy it would be a shame for him to be another player we miss out on. Who ever it is though, Levy needs to make signing a striker priority No.1!
