.  Pullis got the best out of these players . Ok they're a little older , and I wouldn't take Crouch because of his age ,but I think Walters could do us a job.and Adams as the energy in the midfield we could do with .
Charlie Adam NO. Energy? he's got some quality on the ball but he's got no pace and he's the sneakiest dirtiest player in the premier league.
Crouch no, Walters as 3rd striker I'd take but if Rodriguez turns out to be that then no to Walters also.

He'd be a gamble, but surely it's positive intent from Pulis compared to some of his usual targets? (Carlton Cole, wink wink).

Before his injury he was great, now he looks rusty. Surely can't be any worse than Berahino and needs game time. I can't see Southampton selling though as they've not replaced Pelle, unless they have a big target lined up with the Mane + Wanyama cash.

.  Not for one minute do I think we'll sign any of the three players mentioned,has it was a members thought and the thread is on Jay Rodriguez, I would take a punt on him above anyone of the three from Stoke

Check his fitness for a season maybe? Should be loan to permanent if so.

Possibly one Saido Berahino? Would suit both parties?

Was pretty much nailed on to make the England squad before his injury. A loan deal for him would be ideal for both clubs so hopefully we can get it done.

I'd be happy with a loan to permanent arrangement.

Gives us chance to assess how those injuries have potentially hampered him. If its the Rodriguez prior to his injury then he will be a very valuable asset - gives us an option both upfront and out wide.

. The only other question is will he pass the medical . If he does then yes I agree loan to a permanent

See that the Daily Mirror are now reporting Hull are interested in taking him on loan as well

Imagine if we had a time machine - we could swap them the Lambert of 4 years ago for the Rodriguez of 4 years ago

The only thing that worries me is, how much pre season has he done, or how many minutes?

He will be way off Pulis fitness standards surely, so when will we see him.

We need players ready to start now and make an impact.

He came on as a sub against Man Utd on Friday so he must be in relatively good shape. Match fitness maybe needs improving rather than general fitness?

Problem is mate, Pulis, as proven, goes by General fitness and until that's right in his eyes, they won't get game time.

At the moment any new player is a bonus, I just hope that he wasn't low down on the list, and we have better coming in.

After all Fletcher hasn't hardly missed a game since he came, hopefully if he has the right attitude we will be fine with J Rod

I'd never want us to loan from the likes of Southampton.

Ultimately getting their striker back to full fitness and possibly in form, leaving us in the same boat next window.

Has to be loan with the option to buy.........common sense surely or are we that desperate that were a fitness camp for other clubs.

As a backup signing (better than Lambert / Anichebe) then I'd be all for it. However I would hope that a loan deal wouldn't be one of the 5 players that Pulis wants. I still hope we can offload Berahino and bring in a striker of real quality. When I see the likes of Rodriguez and Galloway mentioned I can't help but feel we are a long way down our list of targets and now into panic mode.

And yet you could argue both would strengthen our team. Id happliy have Galloway at left back moving Evans back centrally, and have Rodgriguez infront of him on the left.

I cannot understand why any player would come to us on loan, it is pointless as they get absolutely no game time.
It is time for the club to realise unless TP wants them you can buy/loan who you want but he does not play them.

Previous loans have been for anti pulis type players - which has been strange in itself!
Galloway would play out of necessity and J Rod fits a Pulis stereotype much better and is experienced prem player.
He also fits the fit criteria - might not quite be Pulis fit, but will be fitter than some of our other targets
