The fact is that we are where we are in the PL because our MF's (and I am including VDV in there) have scored their fair share whilst our strikers have not. We arguably have the worst strike rate from our forwards in the PL.
Had they chipped in we would certainly have been esatblished in the top 4 now.
We can argue or have theories about why this is all day long but it will come back to them not scoring. I don't accept the argument that we have not been making chances - look where WHU are and Piquionne has 6. Don't tell me they have made more opportunities that us.
Yes we have a formation and where to play VDV issue but chances are chances no matter who is on the park. Our current strike force is just not good enough IMO and we need to find someone that not only is capable of getting his fair share but who fits into the line up that we now have i.e. VDV playing off the lone striker with two wide men..
