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)☺️

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week.
