I have been banging on about how we should try to get two Ulloa types, two new strikers instead of just one.

Today Ulloa is out due to paper work but what if the reason was an injury, we would be back to a starting eleven such as this one.

If this starting eleven was considered short of the mark prior to Ulloa's arrival then it would remain so if he were out injured.

I still say we need a second striker, preferably one above 5 ft 10 inches tall.

"We assume international clearance did not come through in time".

No doubt a reasonable assumption - but does The Argus not have links with people in the club who can provide factual information? Isn't this what journalists are supposed to do?

Anyway, UTA - 3 pts and I'll be happy.

For goodness sake, I take your point but how many strikers do you want. We have done o.k. with the strikers we have, but the signing of Ulloa is hopefully going to take us to the next level. We cannot keep signing strikers on the basis that the best one might get injured. I am sure CMS, Barnes and Hoskins still all have an important part to play althogh probably not Dobbie.

We have CMS, Hoskins, Dobbie, Barnes and now Ulloa all vying for, from what we've seen so far from Gus, one spot in the team. Ulloa definitely adds different options meaning we could have a second striker playing off of him but I'm not sure we need anymore strikers if all of the above stay in the transfer window. If Ulloa isn't available, we will just revert to how we have been lining up. If Vicente starts playing regularly, I actually think the desperate need for a target man decreases anyway as he will be able to provide better service for our "smaller" strikers. But it is definitely another string to our bow to have the target man option.

Hoping for at least 1 point today.

Some people are still passionate about getting other strikers. Ok maybe a couple of half chances missed but bgham had a few chances also. The problem eas not strikers but discipline to the final whistle ehich is always difficult when 3 of your defenders are on yellow cards. Less cards more discipline. Strikers seem to be eanting to impress now with ulloa looming.
