Lets end with another youngster who wouldn’t need to locate shall we? I say youngster, Luer is 23 but then again in relation to me, that is young. Mind you, in relation to me, Bozzie is young.
Luer scored 12 in 21 for Burgess Hill in the Isthmian Division One South in 2014/15, which resulted in him being picked up by Hull City. I wonder if he might have been on the radar of our management team, they were keeping a keen eye on that scene around that time.
Anyway, Luer experience of the National League, League One, League Two and the Championship, but goals haven’t flowed easily. He showed some promise, scoring twice in three League Cup matches for Hull back in 2015/16, but since then his opportunities have bene limited.
He’s been on loan at Scunthorpe, Port Vale, Maidstone and Stevenage, impressing with his work ethic and link up play, but not getting that vital commodity, goals. He would be a project but at 23, that is perhaps to be expected. If the price was right and he was willing to be both patient and hard-working, he might make a good squad player.
The question is, does Danny want squad players? Or does he want a fourth striker every bit as good as Green, Akinde and Rhead? If it is the latter, he might have to be creative with the budget.
One thing is for sure, we do need another striker, even if it isn’t another big name such as the one we snared yesterday.
