Looks like County are going for the scattergun approach. Good luck keeping all these players happy.

Way to early to say that.

Don't know why - difficult to see how they can play Stead, Dennis and Hemmings

Stead is probably going and having 4 strikers is normal never mind three so that doesn’t make sense.

Point I was trying to make is you can’t play everyone - wasn’t aware Stead was leaving

One thing for certain Notts are going for it

The big thing I keep seeing Clownty fans saying on social media about Hemmings, is that they are happy they've signed him as it gives them some "pace up top."

I never particularly saw him as a pacey kind of striker at all myself, he seemed to be better as a back to goal kind of player. Dennis is a fox in the box kind of striker too, who relies on service.

Something tells me their strike force won't be as threatening as they want it to be without the addition of some wingers as well, so perhaps their business might not be finished?

Seems odd to me that they've got rid of Forte who was their only true pacey front man.

Kane hasn't got pace. I've never once considered him as pacey . He's all about industry and hard graft.

If they think they've signed a speed merchant then they aren't aware of who they've signed.

Compared to Stead and Ameobi he's Usain Bolt though.

Just seen that too Stringy put it on OFF what a strange comment but as you say in context Paris he probably will look quick.

I saw that on the OFF, the lad doesn't have pace, and can't finish. Not great attributes for at least £3k a week.

I hope we do sign someone better though, I am slightly nervous that we won't

I'd have taken Hemmings if the deal was right, I liked him - he had good workrate and brought other players in well - but not for the speculated wages, not for 3 years of those speculated wages, and not as the teams main striker, so the deal wasn't right. So, as he might have accounted for a large proportion of budget, when it could be put towards someone who might be more effective in their position then I can see why we decided to not pursue a deal. The money can get a better return, it's not that difficult.

Surprised me as well, Forte is one I would have kept at ML. He's scored goals wherever he's been and I don't think we gave the lad a long enough run out in the team.
