Sooner have Alfie May than Deon - who would have got more than 30 for us last season

So May MIGHT have scored more than Charles DID score.

I’ll take the what-actually-happened over the what-might-have-happened.

All about opinions Mr Cheese and I believe May would have converted more; be wonderful to have them as strike partners

May have converted more but wouldn’t have pressed enough for Evatt to consider replacing him for Charles. That said I’d love May playing free role in behind.

No player exists in a team in isolation. Did Charles score so many because he was the focus point of all our attacks and often times our only offensive outlet OR because at this level he's a very competent forward?

Both.

I've got mixed feelings about May. The lad undeniably has a great recent scoring record at League 1, but he's 30 in July. As such ought we to be offering a big fee? It is effectively dead money on a player that age - no re-sale value. It certainly doesn't fit the sustainability model FV and Evatt operate by. 

I don't even consider resale value or age.  If they are good players, I don't care if they are 35 (eg McGoldrick).  If you want to sign better quality its unrealistic to expect it to come without a fee the majority of the time, although yes decent frees can be picked up too.

And I don't know what age Adebayajo is but there will be no re-sale value on him, that's also dead money, without the benefit of him being a decent player!

He ain’t going to Preston…. I don’t see him thinking it’s an upward move, and they won’t pay enough to tempt us to sell him. 

They were in the hunt for the Championship play offs with a few games to go, they’re literally ‘upward’ from us in terms of leagues. I get where you’re coming from Mounts, and admire your Bolton bias, but if PNE offered him say a 3 year deal this summer (I’m not challenging whether they could afford him or would offer bigger wages) then it would in no way be a downwards move!

They ain’t are a bigger club, they aren’t massive payers, I don’t see them on an upward trajectory, it won’t happen unless we want it to.

I’d be very surprised if we considered selling Dion unless for a lot of money. His work rate and the pressing he does is very much what IE needs from our forwards and the fact he gets 20+ goals would make it very hard to replace at this level.

He’s only played 9 pro games and they were at Crewe, a big risk in my opinion, if he turns out another crellin then our automatic play offs could be over pretty quick, surely we can purchase a good experienced solid pro.

That was Dabo, the full back.

He, tbf, has played 150 or so games for Coventry.

Dabo despite missing the pen in the playoff final was very well thought of at Coventry , would be a very positive signing for us.

He's quick and strong which we probably need, but he doesn't have much finesse about him which is presumably why he's not made it to the top but nonetheless it would be a sensible replacement for Bradley providing we don't pay silly money.

Downside is he has a name that doesn't lend itself easily to chants and scored one of the best own goals of all time.
