We never buy defenders? Of Graeme's 5 signings to date 3 (Ronny Johnsen, Jean-Alain Boumsong and Celestine Babayaro) have been defenders. The other two, Parker and Faye are defensive midfielders. We ONLY seem to buy defenders. It's a striker we need. Shearer and Ameobi good as they are cannot do it on their own.
