Both good strikers like many others who seem to become useless when they sign for us (not their fault, it's a FGR thing). Wright has been excellent since he left us, still think Hughes is past it though. Even when he came on a a sub you could see him fading late in the game.
Hughes has an amazing amount of skill for a non-league player, good controller of the ball, proof that quality is permanent...even if the body slows down towards the end of a career. Sadly for Lee, I think the years are catching up on him, but I would wish him all the best if he does leave for Kiddy...except when he plays against Rovers!
That's why he's gone to CB instead of playing in a midfield 3 after Simpson left. He was effectively a second striker and just got in the box all the time (hence 5 goals at the beginning of the season).
Brown won't score. For someone as tall as him he hardly gets his head on one, nevermind scores!
Don't think it matters who Luton are getting, Hurst said terms have been agreed with the club and it's down to the player to make a decision. Surely Luton themselves would be waiting for Johnson and wouldn't agree terms until he had.
I find it hard to believe we are signing a player who is still has 2 and half years on his contract, and is the top scorer for a side chasing promotion in lge 2.
Be delighted to be proved wrong, but can't see it.
We're now signing a striker that's not Lee Hughes according to our forum. Apparently got 8 goals in the league this season a fair few in the conference last season my guess Cullen or maybe Danny Wright?
Can't see it being Cullen. More likely to be Christian Jolley I think. Scored a few in this division and can play on the wing, which would add welcome competition. Hurst's words in the article regarding the signing were along the lines that the player is 'attack-minded', it didn't read as though he was an out-and-out striker. We'll see.
