A horrible looking list! John has made great points about assists and yes crouchie has contributed in that way, but there is no doubt we are desparate for a decent striker!
I like Pav/Defoe/Crouch, but they all seem to be in terrible form and are quite limited in what they offer. I'd say Defoe is my preffered option as I think he is more of a pain for defenders to play against, but he's not be right since his return to fitness.
I hate to repeat myself(and others) but we need a striker! we also need a LB but thats another thread.
