But I'd say League 1 is his level, we know from last season that he just can't do it in the Championship. Or am I being unkind?
Personally I'd be looking at Barnet's John Akinde who has the build for hoofball, but unlike Madine, scores plenty of goals as well.
Adam Le Fondre has scored a few goals, but has also missed quite a few easy chances. Some would say we haven't really played to his strengths, but I'm not convinced he can do it in the Championship either (sorry Norpig).
Should we be looking at Bury's James Vaughan or Scunthorpe's Josh Morris as an alternative perhaps?
Can we do better on our limited budget or should we get Le Fondre signed up quickly and go into next season with a Madine/ALF partnership?
