If you put a striker, of any note into the position to score, you'd expect everyone from EPL to Sunday League to have a decent chance at scoring.

However, I would never expect a Sunday League player to get into that position against a Premier League defence, without anything other than dumb luck or a mistake.

Players have scored for fun in the Championship, but have failed at Prem level, there is a reason for it, and scoring when that chance is created is not why
Actually part of what i am implying is that we have been almost totally shit this season at creating really good openings in front of goal. If we can start getting that right then it wont matter as much who plays up front.

I'd play him and from the start.

The w*nkers can't do any research on him if most of us didn't even know who he was before Burnley. Sako (or Dann, ha!) have no mobility and their centre halves will have a walk in the park against either of them. Lumeka offers the surprise option.

It's a no lose situation (apart from the fact that we will) so there will be no pressure on him and he can play without any fear of failure. If he gets a shot on target, I'd consider it a success at the moment!

They probably have good knowledge of all talented youth in academies these days. If the element of surprise is key then perhaps I could still have time to pick up some boots and make Manchester in time. They won't know anything about my power shooting and certainly won't expect my 'movement' in their box.

I'm sold! I will get onto Roy now, will we not have to register you with the PL, in order for you to play though?

My plan would be to loiter behind their goal with my kit on, cunningly concealed underneath a long winter coat. I would then slip onto the pitch as soon as we get our first corner. The slight problem with this plan is that we might never get out of our own half . If so I would stay there until HT and slip on when we concede the first corner of the second half. The disadvantage with this might be that it could take me 45 mins to walk down to their end but they would never see me coming. Should get around the registration thing though

I am sure this is the approach some of our players have taken this season.

May be his chance to shine now Wilf and Sako's both injured.

Rashford only got his chance as Man United had so many injuries, Kane was similar and never shined on loan at Millwall or Leicester.

Not saying he's the next big thing to come through but an opportunity for him could surprise a few.

Clutching at straws just a bit too I suppose!

Kane scored nine goals in 27 matches which resulted in him being named Millwall's Young Player of the Year for 201112

That's better than what I thought from memory, although a few Millwall plums I speak to never rated him there.

Mind you wouldn't forecast that goal record in the third tier for what he's achieved today.

And subsequently did very little at Leicester, so it's definitely a decent point for CharlieCPFC to make.

We definitely need some sort of width from the bench at the very least, especially as this is our last winnable game for a while.

Every game is winnable some are more winnable the others.

Not seen much of him but he has a bit of pace and can provide a cross . I would hope he would be an option to come off the bench maybe when we are chasing the game .

We get over run far too easily in a 442. Looked much better on Sunday when Wilf went wide and McArthur dropped in midfield.
