    Didn’t I read recently that he wants to play more as a number 10 in the middle supporting the striker, as our player of the season and no doubt a favourite of Ralph, I would be surprised if he doesn’t get that opportunity

    "badly need"

    Surely not "badly"....... but definitely a "certainly" would suit all RH's /fans needs :emoticon-0169-dance

    We definitely badly need to improve our defence.

    Getting nervous about this one now. It has gone on a little while and I can't help but wonder if another club might come in and hijack the deal. Would be a great shame to miss out on him.

    Birmingham have just appointed a new (albeit caretaker) manager. It doesn't sound like that has had much to do with any hold up to date but let's hope he wants to bring his own strikers with him!

    This deal is so cheap I keep waiting for the gazzumping to be announced. Rumours that we need to up our 14mill to 16. If we are even blinking over this those responsible are nuts. There must be a dozen clubs watching and waiting.

    Is the player really keen? Or is waiting for someone else to swoop in?

    I’ve not seen this lad play apart from highlights, but the brief stuff I’ve seen says Billy Sharp.

    Anyone seen him play 90 minutes regularly give us a run down?

    Saw him the year previous when they had Gallagher and wasn't impressed, but his numbers suggest that he found another gear last year.

    My concern is less Billy Sharp and more Dwight Gayle, whose quickness was never really enough of an advantage at the PL level to make him more than an adequate rotation option, and regularly found himself bullied by defenders and midfielders alike. Which isn't to suggest that Adams will be poor, but he might be a bit situational; makes sense with our frenetic counter-attacking, but will need to be convinced that he has the technique and guile to improve our plight against teams that want to play deeper.

    Interesting Schad. The highlights haven’t made me go wow and I loved Billy but never thought he’d make it in the PL (we’ll see this season).

    Interested to hear if anyone had watched 90 minutes 5 or 6 times.

    I would add that, Like sharp, Adams needs a strike partner.
    Lukas jutkiviez(sp) did all the hard word. Che Adams is definately alot more stronger and has more powerful running than Sharp so I feel he would deffo do well here given the set up of the 4 2 2 2
