Thank fuck for that!
I thought leading scorer Joe Low was our 'alternative striker.'
Please be Connor Wickham
But decided not to keep it a secret.
Is it "The Player"?
There is not a great deal of strikers still available. Other than Uche and Andre Gray, only ones I can think of are Connor Wickham, Chris Martin and Lyle Taylor. Taylor might be a good shout as one of his best mates in football is Bayo.
Dumping Uche for Chris Martin would be a cold play (apologies, already got my coat)
That would have been great back in the days when he could outrun my nan.
And yes, my nan is dead.
I just want the Wickham/Wycombe headlines.
Which I suppose would make it a PR stunt......
Wouldn't want Lyle Taylor anywhere near the club, seems a right knob.
Unfortunately at this late stage there's not a sky full of stars to choose from
Lyle Taylor was most recently at Nottingham Forest so it must be him.
Taylor won the L2 playoffs in 2016, the L1 playoffs in 2019 and the Champo playoffs in 2022, with three different clubs. A bit of a mad sequence!
but we can’t sign him as “he’s a right knob” according to @ReturnToSenda
Oh gawd...if it is Taylor we'll have the taking the knee/BLM debate and most of the posters on the thread will be blocked for me
Oh fuck, Lyle Taylor might be worse than Andre Gray. An utterly loathsome individual.
Not really sure why character assassinations are being made on two players. Do you know Lyle Taylor? Do you know Andre Gray? What makes them loathsome?
We had the same nonsense with Richard Keogh in the summer.
In fairness, to my knowledge, Lyle Taylor isn't a nasty homophobe, but loathsome is fair.
Or we could just ignore the people determined to have the debate. Frankly if someone like Matt Bloomfield doesn’t mind have a problem having a player around I’m not sure why any of us should.
Andre Gray tweeted: “Is it me or are there gays everywhere? #Burn #Die #Makesmesick.”
Lyle Taylor refused to play for Charlton Athletic in fear an injury would risk a lucrative move. Has since proved he is the motivated by greed and only interested in money.
Lyle Taylor is just cuckoo - this among other things https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/sportsnews/article-9133517/Nottingham-Forests-Lyle-Taylor-claims-meaning-taking-knee-diluted-belief.html
Andre Gray is a homophobe, don't really need to say any more than that https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-3804452/Burnley-striker-Andre-Gray-suspended-four-matches-fined-25-000-homophobic-comments-social-media-dating-2012.html
(Excuse the DM links, they were the top results)
He exposed himself as a raging Tory with that rant at Jeremy Corbyn a few years ago. Doesn't seem the sharpest tool.
This isn't 'character assassination' btw. It's about having standards and wanting to uphold the 'good egg' culture Wycombe has.
Gaz didn't have a problem with having Josh Parker around...
Andre Gray posted a disgusting Tweet when he was 21.
I may not have have posted a disgusting Tweet when i was 21 but certainly made mistakes when I was that age. As I’m sure you did along with nearly everyone.
Is there anything else you are basing your dislike for Gray on?
The whole issue of players refusing to play if they are under contract is ridiculous in itself because so many do it. But you reckon refusing to play as it may scupper the last chance of a life changing career move is worse than homophobic behaviour?
I think by 21, you should know that wishing death upon gay people is bad.
Of course a move to Wycombe may appeal to Andre Gray - given he is married to a Wycombe (Downley) girl.
I wouldn't object to us signing Taylor on a moral level, I just think he's extremely arrogant and that's not a quality that remotely aligns with the ethos of this squad.
It’s funny how people like Gray claim to have completely changed their strongly held views after receiving criticism for them.
Whether it’s homophobia or naked greed, I wouldn’t want either of these loathsome individuals anywhere near our club.
I suspect Taylor or Chris Martin could be on the cards.
