I can’t agree that a striker would solve all our problems, it’s exactly that kind of thinking that has got us in this position back in 2017.
What we need once and for all is footballers who can play in the attacking third and actually keep the ball up there and do stuff with it.
The likes of Jota, Gaston, watkins even *** ‘Chair’. THOSE are the style of players we need to bring in, not more strikers.
Watching Brighton today was depressing, their interplay around utds area was great to watch, it was inventive and full of movement. I’m sick of seeing and saying the same thing about how we attack, how predictable and laboured it is. The reason it’s that way is our attacking players just haven’t got the technical ability. We are full of runners and crossers and hoofers, putting hopeful balls into areas. We generally scrap goals or punish opposition mistakes and we will NEVER score any meaningful amount without a decent pattern to our attack.
im obviously not suggesting that theres players with 100% conversion rate who scores every time, i do however believe that there are plenty of strikers that will finish more often than not from 6 yards out like the two birtt britt chances today.
Marcus Maddison posted the below on Instagram today. We know Warnock likes a gamble with the likes of Taraabt and El Hadj Diouf. He could be just the person Marcus needs in his life to turn it around and be our outlet.
