Contract talks have broken down with Swansea as he was taking too long.

I wonder if King is still interested?

He might be, but unless we can swap him with fallon for example then it aint going to happen due to the fee involved.

i think its great we have 5 strikers! gives a lot of competition for places & puts pressure on them to score goals.

remember last season when we just had parkin & fallon to start with, fallon knew he was guaranteed to start and got lazy. the same probably would have happened this season with roberts, so this is a kick up the arse to all of them.

besides, roberts and cureton can both play out wide, and caton doesnt count yet

Yeh i have to agree. I think it would be nice to have 5 strikers next year, but at the moment, we don't seem to have a midfield! Although ideally i would keep burgess and fallon, i think that a central midfielder is needed far more than a striker at the moment.
After sitting around on the bench for two seasons, I expect fallon wants a change anyway... would suit all parties involved.

Id sooner have Burgess than Fallon, Rory gives it his all but i cant see him getting 10 goals in a season and thats no good im afraid.
