I know from the outside people will look at QPR and see Agyemang, Helguson, Vine and now Pellicori as our striking options but I still think we’re pretty shy in the goalscorer department. All the above are good footballers but someone tell me who is going to get the 20+ goals required to propel us into the top 2 – or even the play offs? I didn’t disagree with the sale of Blackstock to Forest. Dexter scored goals but I never felt he had the quality we need to go onto another level. Yes, he tried hard and had a decent average but I still feel that he lacked the goalscoring nouse and quality needed to make a challenge in this league.
The signing of Pellicori is based on a successful pre-season and I’m fine with that. However, I can’t help but wonder whether he’ll be another Di Carmine – lets give him a chance. Ever since last season ended I thought that finding a left back and a goalscorer should have been our main transfer priorities. My opinion is that we still need to buy a proven goalscorer. £3.5m on a midfielder is great, and shows our intention, but I would have preferred an investment in the likes of Cox, Beckford or even Phillips. We need goals. All successful teams have a 20+ man and we don’t. This is my main worry for the 2009/2010 season.
