No brainer, keep if we can. For all those who knock him he is the best we have at holding the ball up; he's a handful on his day; he has fair pace and who would we replace him with?

I won't even talk about if we go down as we're staying up.

Sell.

Frustrating powderpuff girl of a footballer. Could score a lot in the Championship but more likely to be muscled out of games.

Then again I'd sell virtually everyone. I don't care for the majority of our players and those I do are wasting their careers here and deserve better.

Keane and Obinna are better, although they are very different types of centre forward to Cole.

However Piq and Ba are pretty much the same type of forward as Cole and they are also better - in my opinion.

Sell.


All three are different types of forwards.

Definately. :thup:

Keep, decent enough prem striker, would be excellent in the championship. I would sell if we get a bit of at least £7m in. As a fairly regular England squad member we should get that money off someone like Stoke or Birmingham.

Sell.

Obinna has been a complete waste of space and is the most selfish player I've ever seen, we are a much better team without him - I'm astonished anyone would rather keep him than Cole. Cole has done way more for us than Keane is ever likely to do.

Piq is good but is not getting any younger whereas Cole whilst not young is the right age of 30 and can still improve a bit.

They'll all be off if we go down though (maybe not Piq) with Cole and Ba being the most in demand.

It's a no-brainer to keep Carlton if we go down. I'd keep him even if we stay up.

If we want to only spend 1 season in the championship then we should keep carlton.

i have to agree with the post that he'll be part of the exodus;
cole, obinna, keane, piq and ba will be off
as well as hitz, parker, green, da costa, bridge then spector, dyer, upson, hines and gabbs walking away from the club at the end of their contract finally us trying to offload kovac, faubert, ilunga..perhaps barrera to fund keeping tomkins, noble and collison

of that lot I'd love to keep Parker, Ba, Cole, Green in that order

massive, massive rebuild - 15-20 players needed....tonnes of wages scum circling..no doubt other clubs will play games to get cheap prices leaving it until the end of the window for us to bring players in - another shitty transfer window

happy times....sigh

Depends on the money being offered. Unless we got a really good offer (say, £7 million+) I'd keep him

Sell either way. If we go down we could probably get £7m+ for him. If we somehow stay up then we will have to buy Keane and have Ba who are far better than him.

One of the most frustrating players aswell. Sometimes he stands his ground when a beast like Skrtl is trying to wrestle him to the ground and sometimes he just falls over at minimal contact and doesnt even get a free kick. Then there are the scuffed shots and bad lay offs...

If we stay up keep him but if we go down sell him as he is our only striker with any value.

I didnt even read this before I posted and again couldnt agree more. Parker is the only player that i'd miss altough wouldnt begrudge him a move. (even to Spurs)
