    I agree, wouldn't be a bad call with Keiffer. Has pace. Not sure what wages we'd need to pay.

    Would be an excellent signing in league one. Would prefer him to Bradshaw as a strike partner for Moore. More pace and capable of the spectacular.

    I'm in. Can we call that a groundswell of opinion?

    Never go back - well unless you are Adam Hammill, but Armstrong never really clicked here first time round so I dont see him really fitting in a second time. I think Hedges will be pretty good for us in League 1 anyway and Isgrove if he can get fit

    I have the opposite view , Armstrong has done o.k this season in division one but Bradshaw is proven at this level , has already worked with Moore for 4 months & should no each others game , plus Bradshaw is already our player whist Armstrong would command high wages & Newcastle would want a reasonable fee

    Fair point - don't think we'll get him realistically. However, although Bradshaw has more experience in league one, Armstrong's scoring record is significantly better overall. Armstrong: 29/61 Bradshaw: 41/119.

    Don’t think Bradshaw will be with us still next season.

    We never played to Armstrongs strengths, asking him to drop deep all the time instead of using his pace in behind. A lot like Kent in that certain people will pull him down on his lack of goals but I remember both smashing the woodwork several times and had they been an inch to the left/right everyone would be all over them

    Hedges has always been our player though, so the patience we show has got to be different.

    Armstrong has mostly played on the left this season.

    Think Bradshaw played a lot more championship games to be fair

    That was just league one stats. Don't get me wrong, think Bradshaw will do a job for us in League One. In champ: Bradshaw = 17/79. Armstrong = 7/54. So Bradders has performed better in the champ. These are based on wiki by the way - might be more accurate stats out there.
