No one said anything about second harvest dog food, that's where it's at.

Prefering him to Brown or the others is a bit like saying you'd rather eat dog food than second harvest dog food.
Yeah is a decent point. At Bournemouth clearly Wilson and Afobe would be 1st and 2nd choice and on paper Grabban has a much more impressive scoring record than King particularly in his first stint at Bournemouth. King has been more in competition with Stanislas. Frustratingly from what I've seen it appears as though he is playing with a better attitude than he was at Rovers, anyway, bit of a moot point.

I liked him.

I did too, and I would have preferred for him to have succeeded but it wasn't to be - his end product was never enough to play up front and he was not effective enough out wide. (I could rant for hours about second best strikers keeping decent wingers out of teams).
