On the one hand Sfer, the stats tell the story, our strikers are not clicking, but I think you also touched on the root cause of the problem and that's the formation change. There's no way Harry's going to mess with something that's working (albeit, the Crouch VDV partnership has slowed down recently and Bale's back has been revealed as being a problem for a little while now, hence not so many fiery runs down the left lately). You probably hit the nail on the head when you say that we need to bring in a striker that complements where VDV is playing (does that mean one who will lay balls off to VDV to strike? how would that striker get his own goals? Just asking...sounds like what we have now. I haven't looked it up but assists from the mid-field have to be quite low given that our forwards aren't scoring; that brings up another question is VDV really midfield?)
Good giref more questions than answers.
Our strikers not good enough? Not good enough for the current foramtion (which incidentally wasn't in play last season when we finished 4th and got into the CL), other than that, I'd say they're plenty good enough. I can't even argue against Pavy as he gets his goal when he gets a chance to play (but off the bench like I mentioned in another thread).
