Strikers coming through

Recommended Posts

Listening to the radio today, Olly Shaw sounds like he had a decent game. Apart from him is there any other strikers coming through?/

Missed a pen at the weekend but a backup only going forward. 

Also got motm and was described as unplayable.  He's clearly our second choice striker as of now.

Never saw him play but didn't Alex Jakubiak get a few goals on loan at Falkirk from Watford last year?

Absolutely nowhere near the standard.

I reckon mcburnie will take a few years to grow into international standard. He will struggle away without reward until finally scoring his first Scotland goal at age 25... at which point we'll instantly stop playing him because 'all he does is score goals'

What happens when he moves from "all he does is score goals" to "doesn't even do that very much"?  Just wondering, if he's following the rest of the Jordan Rhodes blueprint

Then we bring him back in and pin all our hopes on him because there is nobody else left (i could actually see that happening to rhodes if Griffiths has any more injury problems)

Nah, think he's done.  I was a big fan of his when he was in Stage 2* of his Scotland career, but whenever he's been involved for us he hasn't offered anywhere near enough.  Not entirely his fault, as I don't think we necessarily play to his strengths (not that we have the players to do so either).  

 

 

* Stage 1: Player not involved, massive calls for him to be involved, hype builds
Stage 2: Player starts getting involved, looks like he might be an answer, if not the answer
Stage 3: Things start to go sour
Stage 4: Proclaimed as shite, neverhasbeen, neverwillbe, usually while looking longingly at the next player reaching stage 1.

Yeah i agree with that tbh. I just think itd be typical for us to turn to him in desperation now when he's at mediocre o'clock career wise (and closing in on 29).

Some will have you believe that the best player's always the one who misses out on the squad.
