Sometimes a Pete moment of genius is all that stands between us and 3 points. It'd be unwise to sell him for anything other than silly money. I still believe that the change to 442, and the resulting lack of support from midfield has stunted Pete's form and goals tally this season.

Exactly this. Talk of selling him is just blather, typical of the rumour market.

To lose Pete would be very very stupid. I appreciate if a club was to offer lets say 6-7 Million for him then it would be quite irrasitable. But then you need to put that money straight into buying another striker. We have to remember Pete hardly had a pre season, He has had a few injury's this year, and he is playing with a lot less support than last year. Also him and long are yet to form a partnership. I really do like him as a player, and think he can score goals out of nothing, He has already got us for argument sake 7 points this season with assists and goals, maybe more points. We need to be careful with a player like Pete, the fans get on his back too much, I honestly feel he is the kind of player to just walk away. He's a premiership striker, we have been asking for, for years. Now we have two or three in long and fortune (after his fantastic performance against stoke). Really don't want him to be sold.

Even if someone did offer that though there'd be no point unless there's an obvious available replacement. It'd be suicidal to go the rest of the season with really only Long as a premier league striker, and he's had various injury problems the past few months.

Then any replacement would likely cost well over the odds, just like Liverpool last year, got a too good to turn down deal with 50m, then ended up having to pay 35m for Carroll.

Liverpool rumour now, what i mean by that some Liverpool writer reckons he would be ideal in their current striker situation and a good PR stunt reference Petes racial abuse he suffered in Russia

how will we go to pot? he hasnt played half the season and when he as he as been rubbish and looks like he doesnt want to be here!

Rubbish???Really?? he is our only proven striker at this level. he adds so much to this side with his pace, ability to go past players and experience

And as for the comment after this one about we will had a football club before there will be one after he has gone...who said anything about the club going to pot??I just think we will be seriously weakened and lose some more of the unpredictable play we take to teams with PO in the side...

I reckon we should sign this bloke. He had a successful season-long loan with us last season. We could do with him back.

It's a shame you've formed those opinions because you're basically guessing about his mindset and then writing a player off.

A pretty accurate guess if you ask me.

The more bids that are reported and the more strikers we are linked with makes me think that this really does have legs.
Wouldnt be surprised to see Pete off at 11.59pm on Monday

When I first reported the story in 'The Times' that WBA had offered Odemwingie to QPR, many said it was a piece of lazy journalistic nonsense. Now it is clear that the story was true.

Odemwingie's demeanour shows he is unhappy and the coach has expressed his frustration with the player. He will be gone soon, before his value declines too far.

I honestly don't see how this pure speculation based on the fact we would like another striker can suddenly mean that initial story of offering him to QPR was definitely true, you are just guessing like everyone else.

We rarely use Cox as a striker, until last week Fortune hadn't been used. Tchoyi hasn't been used for a good while so we only have Odemwingie and Long who has been struggling with injury. We simply need more options.

It wouldn't surprise me if he went in the summer but it would surprise me if he went anywhere before this window closes. We have let strikers go in January before and really suffered for it, we can't make that mistake again.

Hodgson has been speaking this morning about the fact that he would like to sign a new striker - apart from Hustzi, but is not too optimistic. If he is successful, however, it wouldn't surprise me in the least if we cash in on Odemwingie.

We just let him go and didn't replace him, hopefully we have a striker before Pete goes
