You talk about players brought up in the dutch game being poor, what about Van Nistelrooy, I know most people hate him, but you can't knock his record, 148 goals in 207 games.
I truly accept Ruud Van Nisterlrooy is one of the best goal scorers in the League. In fact, Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is another Dutch striker performing well in England.
There is no discrimination against any Dutch players. I am looking forward to seeing Zenden coming back to play well on the right flank for Liverpool.
However, we have far too many European strikers recruited without the baptism of Premiership football and found to be flops after joining. We had quite a few in the past ten years. We have just put the two young French strikers out on loan. Cisse and Morientes are the two we have to deal with. It is obvious that either our scouting works are bad or our training team is not good enough, or both.
While I accept he gets a lot of goals, it says a lot about the team around him when he only scored his first goal from outside the box a few games ago. Still a good player though. Does have a reputation for being a goalhanger.
