Rumour Mill-Laws Wants to Mackie A Good Start?

Rumour Mill-Laws Wants to Mackie A Good Start?

24 year old Plymouth striker Jamie Mackie is understood to be a target of new Burnley manager, Brian Laws.

Plymouth Argyle signed Mackie from Exeter City for £145,000 in January 2008.

He has now scored 12 goals in 81 games for the Pilgrims.

It is believed though that Nottingham Forst, Derby and Middlesbrough are also looking at the striker although the lure of a Premier League club might be more tempting for the former Wimbledon and MK Dons forward.

The striker who can also play on the wing was botn in Dorking,Surrey. However he has both a Scottish and Swiss grandparent which would make him eligible for either the Scotland or Switzerland national sides should they come-a-calling.

At least Laws will bring some fresh ideas on the type of players we need and wont be bombing up to Scotland all the time to find the men he wants.

I am waiting for news on the signing of a good, experienced, solid central defender

Maybe Wenger will loan us Sol Campbell if he won't let young Jack out to play?

Steve McClaren at FC Twente is in for Wilshere now. Why do we want another striker unproven in the Prem League.....start at the back and then move forward in the summer, this lad maybe no better than JayRod. SIMPLES sort out the defence.

Do we really need this player? Will he offer something that Fletcher, Paterson, Thompson, Jay Rod or possibly Nugent will not?

12 goals in 81 for Plymouth? Hardly inspiring stats are they? People forget we have Pato and J-rod to return, along with McCann, a player I think we've missed a lot so far. Plus the 3 forementioned players were all injured early doors so will be hungry and fresh and effectively like new signings.

Yeah I thought the goal stats did not look that great unless he is more of an assist-type striker. Probably better strikers out there although I would back Laws judgement if he thought he could do a job here. I too think Pato and McCann are now going to be crucial players for us up to end of season. Jay Rod too is also likely to play a part although I suspect mainly from the bench. Guess it depends what happens to Nugent

12 in 81 ? An 'assist type striker?" Am I going mad ?

Maybe he's the heir to the "assist type striker" (Emil Heskey) king's throne?? We already have one of these though in Tommo and I doubt this Mackie fellow will be any better than Tommo, J-rod or Paterson and definately nowhere near Fletch or Nugent
