So what your saying is that after 35 games in the league, plus cup games Duke will now prove himself. Personally I think he's had quite long enough, mind you knowing Duke he will either have a cold, or his ankle will be hurting or his toe will be inflamed so probably wont play! Football must be the only profession where we have to put up with no performing wingers who think they are better than they are. Ok he scores a wonder goal against Cardiff and gets three points, he didnt do a lot else after that. Sorry mate, guess Im from the old school where strikers played week in week out, and actually worked hard on the pitch - still waiting for duke to that!
fair enough he might not do it week in week out but if and when we go up he will be a vital asset as he has experience and a good record and with kamara leaving unless money is spent on a new striker i dont think we are going to be able to depend on phillips and harston to get us the goals we need in the premiership

Still cant see how you can regard duke as an asset especially when youve said that he doesnt do it week in week out. If we do get promoted I dont see him as an asset if he has a season like he already has. Do you honestly think he will change if we go up? I agree that hartson and phillips will struggle (especially Hartson), and unfortunately I also agree that Kamara will probbaly leave. however he should attract very good money as he has 3 years left on his contract. I think it still shows that one area we will have problems with is upfront. If we could keep Kamara i doubt if the board will put up much money for a striker to play along him. If he does go, who would we buy? cant see many 20 goals a season striker for 2/3Million.
