Tony Cottee held a Twitter Q&A session on Monday night and one of the questions he had to answer involved three players he would sign for us from the Championship if he had the power.
It looks like we were one step ahead of him in January as one of his selections was Jarrod Bowen, along with Brentford’s Ollie Watkins and Eberechi Eze of QPR.
For those as you that aren’t keen students of the second tier, the first name is a bright 24-year-old English striker who has 22 goals from 35 appearances. Only Aleksandar Mitrovic has more in the Championship in 2019/2020.
The second is three years younger and an attacking midfielder by trade, a current England U21 international and a man with 18 goal contributions under his belt in the league this term.
Unsurprisingly, fellow fans were all over the club legend‘s suggestions…
Them 2 would be class so you think it’s time for us to start looking in the championship more often again lots of good players in there who would relish the chance of premier league football if we can stay up ?

I’d love to see that too Cotte both will have probably £20m price tags & If Brentford come up reckon Walktins stays if they don’t we should go for him & their DOF Ankersen!
Eze is one of my fav players to watch in championship pace & skill on ball do well in PL IMO!
