Freedman v Morrison

I think this will be a closer match up than Murray v Armstrong

Freedman scored the more spectacular goals but Clint earned his rightful place in Palace folklore too. This is based on football only and anyone holding a grudge against Freedman should consider it on this basis.

Close but Dougie edges it on the basis he was one of the individual players you would get excited about watching each week along with Wright, Lombardo,curcic, bolasie, zaha

Clinton was a clinical championship striker but didn't bring that buzz of the unexpected of brilliant

Freedman the better footballer, sublime touch, he scored some great goals, couldn't call him slow either. Did get muscled out in a lot of games. Went on dry spells when it came to finding the back of the net. Vital goals against Wolves in the play offs and at Stockport.

Clinton at his best was lethal in the box with his back to goal. During the first admin period under Coppell he was so energetic, a constant threat down the channels too. Great goal against Liverpool in the League Cup

Maybe Freedman edges it, which is a shame cause he's a bit of a knob as a person. Clinton is too but in a more innocent way.

You could have added Charlton to that, had we not thrown one away at the end.

Love Clint but dougie was the better player

Why are there no polls on these versus threads?

Both had two spells with us.

Dougies first spell was the best, but overall i have to go with clint.

Dougie at the end took around 100 gamea to score his final 10 goals.

Im probably bias though, got nothing but love for clint but for me dougie tarnished his own legacy when he left as manager to join bolton.

I find it difficult to seperate dougie the player and dougie the manager.

Dougie had more ability. Could score from literally anywhere. Superb vision and was always one move ahead of the play in his head.

Unfortunately his managerial spell is likely to cloud judgement as it's still raw with a lot of fans.

Both strikers, but entirely different types of players, making comparisons a bit moot.

DF clearly the better all round footballer, Clinton a lethal, direct goal scorer.

Glad to have had them both

You could say that about this whole Memory Lane board. Daft thing to say, though.

Freedman was much better technically, but I think a lot of people forget that Clint was a very skilled player, he just played the poacher role because it got him more goals.

If you asked me which one I'd prefer to have in the team now, despite the sulks, the shoulder and his ability to infuriate me constantly, it'd be Clint. His skillset still works in this division in my humble as he was always able to find an inch to get a shot off, whilst Dougie's jinking runs and undoubted ability to score from anywhere i suspect would be nullified by the way the defensive lines are these days.

technically better but Freedman should have achieved more IMO. Both Morrison and Freedman have an identical goals per game ratio for the top flight at 0.17 goals per match.

Freedman made 58 top flight appearances in all (For Forest & Palace) scoring 10 goals

Morrison made 88 top flight appearances (For Birmingham) scoring 15 goals.
