Has he ever connected well with a shot in the time he’s been here?! I’ve seen kids in the playground with better technique. Professional £40m scuffer!

 

Really annoys me as sometimes he does quite well gets himself into a decent position and then almost side foots the ball back to the keeper.

No. Not once. His goals against Oxford and Palace were both scuffs.

Aleister Crowley considered the number 9 the most evil of the numbers . Who does Mike Ashley spend the most money on and is subsequently awarded the number 9 ? Clearly we're through the looking glass here people.

Can anyone name a worse record signing by any premier league club? Has to be a record signing.

 

If you broadened it to any professional football club in the world I still couldn't.  No club in the universe screws simple things up on the scale that we do.

You know what i’d just play Carroll until Wilson is back in the absence of anyone else - Gayle doesn’t care and Joe is a lost cause

 

Carroll FFS :lol:

 

Wilson is back in 2 games hopefully  :lol: - last I checked we didn’t have Mbappe to call on - got no other option but to play this lump

Considering we seem to have resorted to long throws and even more hoof ball than usual.  May as well play the big useless knacker.

 

Which is my point Vlad - we have no one else

That’s another thing that pissed me off yesterday. Bruce “not messing with the system” yet we spent the whole game blasting long balls and king throws  at an Allardyce team.

The only times he looks semi-competent is when he gets the ball under control and uses his height to turn and run with it directly. He's a big lump so he's awkward to get the ball off. But he doesn't do it anywhere near enough.

 

However...the slightest bit of physical contact and he crumbles. He's not the slowest big guy either, as demonstrated by his chance vs west brom. But he neither has the ability, composure or confidence to score or even take a shot.

He would actually score alot more if he could just connect with a shot as well. That scuffed left footer was actually a great chance yesterday but simply can't kick a ball with any force.

 

The problem is we have very little else in reserve. Especially as Bruce's is go to tactic is pump it long to him. Plus for some reason we do sometimes seem to get noticeably worse in games when we bring Gayle on, or Murphy etc. Probably more so because the idiot in charge has no idea how to play to their strengths.

I still can't believe he didn't shoot when he was through yesterday, like. It was absolutely perfect for him. He had the ball under control at full stride and it was on his stronger foot. He seems to take all of his shots with his weaker 'Cheesestrings' left, which also baffles me.
