Took the words right out of my mouth. I have been annoyed at people slating the team, and particularly Carroll, for drawing games but there is a very worrying pattern of dominating games and failing to score enough goals emerging. Actually more than emerging, it is well established. The thing is we have plenty of players who should be looking to get double figures in goals, but its just not happening for them. The penalty misses are very worrying and wouldn't be happening if players were confident and firing. Maybe more shooting practise is required in training?
I don't like dreaming of transfer targets to solve our problems but it may well be necessary, especially if Suarez gets the ban, which we have to assume he will. We will have the same problem as we did in the summer though, big names don't want to come to non-champions league clubs. Some clever manoeuvring will be required I think to land us the next Torres.
We've not bite and not players who can't rip teams apart.. carroll may come good but he's not setting any records alight.. He may be shipped out before long.. either out on loan or loaned with the option to sell..
