    Different cloud but silver lining...

    ...but would you then rather have a striker that's smooth and silky who scores 10 a season, or a clumsy carthorse that gets 15?...

    Do you remember a couple of seasons back when Drogba (why does that always remind me of Porridge?) mis-hit every goal that he got? Off the shin, off his nose, off his bum - but they all count - and does he look that bad now? OK, yes .......

    Bent will be there. He's getting in the positions - even 'that' header - who was with him? He was by himself - that's where good strikers find themselves...

    • Fair comment John.
      But I'm afraid I like to see more contribution from a stiker than just a goal tally. 15 might seem good but if that's the only contribution then I'm sorry that's not good enough.
      Keane and Berba both scored 20+ goals and had as many assists. I just can't see Bent having many ticks in the assisting column.
      Strickly my opinion.
