We have got Ollie Lord in, so it’s not like we have dismissed that future need.Not being a big full forward was pretty much my point, i think we want that big full forward to cover Dixons spot in a few year especially given he have Georgidies in this role (not that means we can have both by any stretch, if they both developed they way the could it would give us great flexibility)
Im not apposed to drafting him and agree there is probably huge Risk V Reward, but multiple ACLs to his age would make anyone nervous and probably impact the chance of him becoming that midfielder. I could be completely wrong, he may never have another issue and bounce back post ACL like Gray but at the same time he could be another Menzel. As you said its Risk V Reward, if there no better prospect why not have a crack.
I constantly make the same argument about Georgiadies ability to be a gun KPF for us, which would also give us even more benefit in looking at a Dixon replacement. Maybe that could be Lord, maybe not, others would have far better an idea how he plays and would factor that into to our list management decisions here.
This is about the SSP though, and unless there is a bona fide 200+ guaranteed 300 game forward available, surely you have a crack at a high risk/reward talent.
I am not sure that Menzel’s inability to get back was purely ACL related, probably more laziness and attitude.
Still think Baldwin is a fantastic option which essentially costs the club nothing and does not detract from anything they may do about tall defenders and forwards, in the future.
