    Would Bent have scored.....

    Happy New Year to all

    He would have had more.....as Lennon has now started delivering. But even if he scored 30, I still wouldn't have liked his style (as I don't like Daffy's).

    Remember when Dogba first arrived on the scene at Chavski? The ball bounced off his shins, elbow, kneecap, eyelashes...anywhere apart from his feet - but he still scored goals. That was because he was in the right place at the right time. That's what goalscorers do - have a knack of being in the right place. (Unless your Daffy, then you score goals by having as many shots as humanly possible and work off the law of averages - monkeys,typewriters and the complete works of Jacques Pierre etc)

    Give me cross between Greaves/Lineker/Gilzean and Berbatov - I think I'll call him Grinzeanov The Impaler....he's mine I tell you, all mine....ha ha ha ha ha (in a pantomime 'baddy' voice). I register the copyright here and now.

    • John, I've heard of deft headers but eyelashes is stretching it a bit, though your point is well taken. Not sure I agree about Defoe, yes he is selfish (most good strikers are) but his passing and movement is also very good, well certainly better than Bent.

      Don't know about your mutant ninja striker, Greavesy on his own will do for me.

      • B2s,
        ....Yeah, but just imagine the terror on the defenders faces when HE appears, stitched up at the seams. Gilzean's bald head, Berbatov's vampiric eyes, Lineker's sun tan, Greavsies boots on back to front.. and the name...Grinzeanov The Impaler....pure terror. Greavsie? Sounds like a cuddly toy or an oiled up piece of knightly wear...Lineker? Sounds like a frustrated sailor...Berbatov? Sounds like something you'd throw at a T42..BUT Grinzeanov - I shudder at the mention.....

        Now talking of heading ability - Gilzean used to frequently score just by BATTING his eyelashes at the ball - he never even touched it and it went in....Now those were the days - when they used to play the Orange Ball when it snowed as the pitches were still 5ft deep in snow - but they played. Not like today's wussies (? Is that how it's spelt?) - underpitch draining, heating and gnomes working overtime to make sure the games are played and then what? A micrometer of slush and it's all off. Next we'll get the pools panel in operation....
