    Rather spend a bit more and get a proper striker.

    Be very careful with Villa ones - we'll only play one centrally and if Kozak is fit he'll start, but if he's not it'll be Bent or Agbonlahor through the middle. But Kozak back soon, then Bent soon after. Definitely avoid.

    Yeah but if he won't play, then it's irrelevant.

    Couldnt agree more. Had kone and bent at start last season and was reluctant to wildcard so early so had poor start.

    Why? 2 expensive and 1 cheap forward is surely the best way to go. If a striker does well I will transfer one of my expensive forwards.

    How is it surely the best way to go? With strikers you get what you normally get what you pay for. If you want decent points then get a decent striker. Last year was pretty much an exception where midfielders were even close to the strikers for points and even then they were more expensive, all top strikers missed games and there were very good cheap midfield alternatives (Sterling, Lallana, Januzaj, Ramsey at start, Johnson, Puncheon.) With the exception of Lambert and Bony who still weren't cheap, only expensive strikers consistently performed well.

    Surely there's better cheap strikers than Vaz te. I'd be surprised if he plays a single minute this season.

    As a Hull fan I can tell you it is a poor choice. Now we have 2 good strikers (ish) and a few acceptable backups Brucey will rotate a lot more and moybe play just 1 up top at times. Long is fast and can finish like the best but he just doesn't get enough chances and he is a typical poacher. He reminds me massively of an off form Robbie Keane.
    I am assuming you have multiple big midfielders so I would drop 1 of them for an Eriksen/Lamela/Nasri/Sterling/De Jong and pick a decent forward like Dzeko.
    I see what you mean, I just can't seem to free up enough to get that 2.5 mil for a decent third striker.

    this is what I have at the moment. Any suggestions very much welcome.

    I think that this year will be similar to last in the sense that mids will do well. Many have scoring capabilities while I dont see many strikers that will score 25+ goals. Having said that, you have tempted me to change my approach.

    None of them. There isn't one player who'll play regularly and half of them will probably get loaned to clubs in the Championship.

    seems like a really bad idea to me to go anywhere near that cheap forwards..
