I know he's scored a ton of goals, but in the context of his career this season has been a total anomaly. Hasn't been prolific anywhere else. Does make you wonder if it's a case of player and club fitting perfectly, rather than him suddenly becoming a prolific striker at the age of 26. I'd be wary of this one, personally. I do think we need a more experienced striker though to compliment the younger lads.

You don’t want a striker who has just scored 32 goals in 46 games?

Actually 32 goals in only 45 league starts.

He’s a Liverpudlian so that might help our cause somewhat...

He’s only scored 40 in 196 games before that. This is the only time he’s scored more than 10 in a season and the last time he played in League One he managed 3 in 20 games.

I’m not saying I wouldn’t take him, I’m saying I’d be wary because it seems until he went to Cambridge he was bang average, hence my suspicion it might be the a case of the player being a perfect fit for the club he’s at.

Anyone know what style and formation Cambridge have played this season ? Might be a factor in why Mullin has been so prolific this season that it suits his own style.

I recall their manager Shaun Derry as a very industrious, neat midfielder for Leeds, QPR and Palace. I am sure he will have moved the club's tactics forward from the very long ball game that John Beck brought to the club years ago.

I see Wes Hoolahan is out of contract at Cambridge - worth offering a contradct to - he ooozes class and I dare say would team up well with Mullin should we get him too.

Hoolahan is 39 this month but having said that he was shortlisted for League 2 player of the season. There is experience needed but this might stretch it just a bit far I feel. Coppinger made it to 40 in League 1 so it's not impossible.

This is a great example of how Plymouth's location works against Argyle. Wes Hoolahan had a long and very successful career at Norwich City (ten years) and although he spent a couple of years elsewhere after he finished playing there (West Brom and Newcastle, Australia) I would guess he has very strong links with the East Anglia area. I am sure that's the primary reason that he ended up playing at Cambridge this year. There are no other (better) league clubs anywhere near Plymouth and so no players looking for a club close to home that they could play out a season or two before retiring.

Not a rumour, at least not yet, but Jack Stephens has bought a house (and promptly knocked it down and rebuilt) just up the road from my parents on Whitsand Bay.....

I bet we couldn't even afford the house he's about to build there, never mind Jack himself.
