Assombalonga the main man

Recommended Posts

That'll be the season when he couldn't hold a first team shirt in a relegation threatened Forest? It was his failure in front of goal that got Forest in that mess, he went 4 goals in 22 games. 4 goals as a CF in half a season. He saved them after going missing for 6 months

twice as good? haha, deluded mate. Britts limitations mean that he is barely twice as good as me and 50 is on the horizon. He'll be at Doncaster/Rotherham/Barnsley within 2-3 years

- claims he doesn’t hate Britt

- says moronic *** like this

Little thing called injuries are why he couldn't hold a shirt.

He missed a quarter of the season.

His worst playing run was 7 games without a goal, and it's hardly a shock that a relegation threatened team struggles to score.

32 games, 14 goals. If you think that's going missing then it's laughable that you're claiming you have no issue with him.

Oh he definitely had injuries, but he was dropped also. They scored 62 goals, they scored plenty, that was him in an attacking team, they benched him and dropped him because he was hot (against the rubbish teams)  and cold.

 

so I take it you all can't wait for him back in the side, lounging around waiting for a tap in but offering nothing else? Fletcher is a better all round CF and if fit should hold his place. I guarantee in 12 months, you will all have changed your mind.

Wrong bit. Premier League teams have shown serious interest in him before he came here and since he’s been here.

paper talk, no one has put a bid in for him at any point. Still if you rate him, tell me his strengths....

Running in behind, finishing, running the channels and stretching defences. He’s a Physically strong player. He has a good connection with Fletcher.

running in behind - agreed

finishing - not a chance, goes for power most times, shoots front post too often. I'll give you finishing with his head though

running channels - he is average at this as he rarely holds the ball or turns and beats a man. As a defender I would be very happy if Britt is running out wide because he is zero danger out there

stretching defences - nope, he isn't particularly quick, he doesn't stretch defences at all

Physically strong - average, because he's too bulky and gases, then he's weak

good connection with fletcher - hmmm

So basically if you can get the opponents to keep a high line, so that he can run in, and he has his occasional shooting boots on, then he might score....and that's it?!

When does he score from outside box, or thread a through ball, or even beat a man?

Sounds like what people used to say about Ruud van Nistelrooy when they were trying to prove he wasn't very good.

I agree with BoroMart and have been having a similar debate with my family for a few seasons now and slowly but surely they're seeing sense.

His main limitation is he can't trap a bag of cement.

Respectfully disagree. There are some good and measured arguments being put forward in this thread by both sides. Personally I'd keep Britt if we can, but I do think his goalscoring record hides many limitations in his game which supposedly inferior strikers don't suffer from to the same extent.

    • I thought that was odd, too. 2.00pm? A conference before Forest that soon? Wishing it's his resignation but won't be. 😒
    • I agree it was much, much better but we were still so far behind Leeds it was an indication of how far we have fallen. The team would still need to improve in all games until the season end to get the points tally to survive and I don’t see that happening. Facts are facts, 2 shots on target in 3 games, 8 wins and the lowest amount of goals in the league. Facts!
    • Woodgate press conference at 2pm today? Is this usual the day after a match?  Either doubling down, we’re told he’s here to stay and he gives us some platitudes about heart, commitment, fighting for the shirt. Or he resigns with a heavy heart? 
    • I have a feeling Woody will resign today
    • Well I can give you my opinion in one word after watching that trash last night and that is "Dire". I am still baffled after a season coaching these "So called strikers" that Robbie Keane still as not found a combination or system to get them playing together. We could honestly have had 6 forwards out there last night and played a 3-1-6 and still those 6 would have been running around like headless chickens without any idea of how to put the ball in the net. No matter how many pass's were going into that last 3rd area Boro were never going to score a goal this side of Good Friday. "DIRE."
