    Wouldn't mind seeing it but I don't think it would happen

    New pitch in the next few weeks? Thought it was end of the season because of the schedule.

    I reckon Sturridge in league 1 would make Graham and Grigg look like a couple of motivated, hard work, professionals.

    Absolutely agree with this! He never struck me as someone who will work his arse off for success. Quality wise he's way above League 1 - but attitude and workrate wise he's not even there. Probably the reason his career is going the way it seems

    Having said that - I never really "liked" Defoe prior to him joining us! (Nothing to do with his football, just his character that I had of him in my head)! Very happy to be proved wrong on that score!

    No doubting the lad's quality but he hasn't exactly bust a gut recently has he? Better managers than Johnson currently is have tried and failed to get him going.

    You never know, he might react like Defoe did, but the evidence suggests he wouldn't.

    The fact that he was offered to the Mags as a free agent and they didn't pick him up says it all. Its either his wage demand, attitude or fitness that stopped it. This is the club that signed Andy Carroll FFS.

    I wouldn't go that far. He puts a Mags shirt on and wanders around the pitch a bit. But they pay him for it

    Thought he'd have a bit more energy like as all the clubs are closed

    No from me too. I cant see him fitting with the style of play LJ wants and I wouldnt be confident in his motivation.

    Would be a absolute waste of wages and with massive chip on his shoulder! He would never drop to L1 because he thinks he's better than that! Great talent but he would be worse than rodwell!

    Some of these comments <laugh><laugh> imagine not wanting him here man. A half motivated Sturridge would be the best striker in this league by a mile. A few people need to give their heads a wobble.

    Some good sensible comments..

    He will unfortunately still want a big salary... I do wonder if Defoe would come back for a few months.

    Sounds just like the comments from the ones who wanted us to pay £2.5m for Maddison who now plying his trade in league division 4?
