Had he not been injured for a period between November and January, there's a chance Colak would be on course for 25 goals this season. That doesn't mean he's anywhere near good enough though.
The thread title might read '25 league goals striker needed' but what the OP is really implying is that we need a striker of better quality than what we have at the moment. And for the record, neither Dykes nor Shankland fit that bill (irrespective of their nationality).
I agree tbh, and my op could have been better phrased.
What we need is 25 goals and a player who runs defenders around, creating space for those behind.
It’s a big ask.
Let’s not forget that in the supposed j league bargain basement the diving wee prick still cost 4.5m. He was a big outlay.
It’s not like they struck lucky spending pennies. He was expensive.
We need to spend wisely, but will need to spend.
It remains an absolute slap on the nuts the roofe situation. Was bought to deliver all of above, I do believe capable of being best player in league.
We are now in the position where we can’t rely on him playing next season.
That’s not hyperbole - the club will be looking at squad next season and roofe will have a “tbc” next to his name. And that won’t be whether or not he’s in Glasgow either.
So we are in the situation where - I believe - we need to spend a chunk of budget on a CF with the potential that roofe (on last year of deal) is fit and available. But only on bench as we need to look to the future.
