Assombalonga the main man

I'm playing devil's advocate here because I also think Britt is frequently lazy, quite selfish and far from a team player. However, a striker's main function is to score, and Britt's track record of doing that is beyond reproach, season after season. It's impossible to overlook his pedigree as a scorer of goals.

(I'd still accept the first half-decent offer we receive for him, though, and I do acknowledge the team as a whole is stronger in his absence).

Of course mate, it’s all about opinions. It’ll sound like I have a vendetta against him if I go on any further, so I’ll leave it at that 😂

Assombalonga has never been good enough; what exactly are the mans strengths? He’s not fast, can’t beat a man (yet try’s to on almost every occasion he has the ball, losing possession nine times out of ten) and he can’t hold it up either.

Really happy Fletcher has found some consistent form and, as I said the other day, if we get a decent bid in for Assombalonga I’d take it all day long. 

Another good one-on-one finish from Fletcher today, 4 goals in 7 games as CF, he is without doubt our first choice CF right now and I wouldn't be surprised to see him finish the season with 14-16 league goals if he stays fit. We are creating chances and he looks confident in his proper role.

Know what you mean,some are under the impression this applies to Clayton and my opinion of him. Far from the truth I adore our Adam (well the last few games anyway)☺️

    • I think Gibson has always wanted a club built on a self sustaining footing, Norwich have proved it can be done, the article from the Luton manager saying how difficult to play football following Pulis is probably highlights the real issue, too many negative managers to be able to click your fingers and change into an attacking side instantly. I believe Woody will get us there eventually but personnel will need to be moved on to free up funds and bring in the right sort of player. Hopefully we'll continue on this path and not revert to a defensive manager whenever the next one arrives.   Edit: wonder if Klopp fancies a real challenge 😄  
    • Sadly, you are probably right, a similar thing happened at Sunderland. Do you think the club would reduce ticket prices in the event of relegation? I find it strange that people are renewing now, at the current cost, when they could be watching third tear football next season. 
    • I'm told that the club know it's a long term project and that there will be money to spend next season. That said I really dont think we as a club can afford a relegation.
    • That's one of the reasons I don't think he'll get sacked. You saw how easy our fans were swayed in the summer by one press conference and a handful of Gazette articles.  If we got relegated we'd just have a massive PR campaign from the club and Gazette and by August our fans would be raring to go again. 
    • Don't know if this counts as other boro stuff, but media saying Barcelona are trying to get Braithwaite hahaha
