Who would you guys like us to sign as a replacement for Taylor?

I think a short term permanent or loan deal would be best for us...doesn't push Taylor out of the squad completely once he is fit again.

Some people did warn that he was injury prone,

How about a loan move for that Norwich U23 striker, I would take either of their centre backs too, class!

The club or Flynny never learn do they?

Examples
Crofts crocked before signing
Leadbitter likewise
Now Taylor.


How much has that cost the club.

It's a contact sport - players get injured and miss games.

Is Harry Kane considered a poor option to buy for the likes of Man Utd, Man City, Barca, Real Madrid etc... because of his injury record?

Was Bale considered a poor option for Real? He has become one of their most decorated players.

Mario Balotelli is on a free...can someone persuade him to come to Newport to do his coaching badges with the FAW and maybe we can nick him too?

My first thought - we don't need a replacement striker. Just need to use the other options and perhaps adapt our playing style around them.

Injuries to Taylor was always a high risk. Need to get Ellison or Podge working in partnership with Abraham's now. Plus other options incl. Janneh and Collins. Also, Twine was signed as a striker and we know he can find the net.

Good shout on McCoulsky though, not featuring for FGR.

To make matters worse for Newport, Flynn revealed striker Ryan Taylor is set for a long spell on the sidelines. “Ryan is injured. He’s done the tendon on his hamstring. It’s not good,” Flynn said.

“I don’t like putting times on things, but it could be between seven and 12 weeks. It’s a massive blow and we’re trying to replace him. We’re trying to find a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.”

Think the other posters are right when they say we have to take what we can get. Our budget is tiny, so our best hope a lot of the time is taking a punt on cheaper but risky signings. You could argue it’s a false economy, but the other option is to take a punt on totally unproven players or rely on the academy, and the success of that will be hit or miss too

Nothing to do with that.
These 3 examples were continually crocked for previous clubs.
All well documented
Flynny even stated Leadbitter is always crocked and the fella even told his ex manager but we gave him a 2 year contract.

Or kept Matt.
Doubt if Crofts or Taylor were cheaper options!

My point still stands - both Kane and Bale have injury records but still are desired.

Apparently Lewis Collins has withdrawn from the Wales u21s squad due to injury. Hopefully nothing too serious
