True enough.

2. Ayew - not an out and out striker.
3. Sorloth - a kid from Danish league, nowhere near ready
4. Whickam - injured, injured during transfer window, so club should have not relied on him this season
5. Zaha - not a striker

Wilf is a striker in the last two seasons he's basically been the second striker and has got us 8 or 10 goals. He's scored or won most of the goals we have scored this season. He's not a central striker but he's a striker at this point.

Agree it's all Wilf's fault, he creates great chances but is just not fast enough to be on the end of his final ball and score from his own crosses.

Probably says all you need to know that we have 2 fit strikers and neither were selected to start the game yesterday

Recruitment shambles.

No Wilf, no Benteke and we don't start our only striker (Sorloth). Roy clearly knows he isn't up to it.

How has Parish gambled again on us not picking up injuries?? We have a track record of injuries at this club. It's happened again and we are f**led. To be playing Ayew up front on his own is pathetic. No winger to replace Wilf. We let Bakery go, but didn't bother to bring anyone in to replace Wilf or Andros. It's such bad planning.

alanlee11 05-08-2019 11:32 AM

back to 2 strikers again and that includes one who has been woeful for 2 years now and another who struggles every season with injuries.

what a mess.

RCUK 05-08-2019 11:35 AM

Thought we had Ayew, Benteke and Wickham.

Or have i missed something???

And Zaha if he's not playing wide

glaziers fan 05-08-2019 12:00 PM

We have 4 fit strikers: Zaha, Benteke, Wickham and Ayew. Plus Schlupp as 5th choice. Striker is not a problem position if Benteke rediscovers form, and apprently he's looking sharp in training. Issue is the midfield. We are still looking for the creativity and destruction of Cabaye and the ball skills of RLC.

We need to hold more possession and win more ball in the midfield.

striker is not a problem?!?!?

It's been a problem for nearly half a decade. Did you attend our terrible home games last season, where we could only score penalties and something like 8 goals from open play.

That is definitely more than 2. (Whilst i don't think Ayew is best as a striker it is where Roy has played him. You could even throw Schluup into the mix as he played as the second front man at Bristol didn't he?

So when Roy is looking at his squad i don't think he is seeing 2.

(I still think we will try and sign another striker though)

Wilf and Ayew are not strikers. They really aren't.

Mr Palace 05-08-2019 04:01 PM

Hang on - everyone says Ayew isn’t a striker, he’s more of a winger. He was dreadful when played up front last season.

Wickham is made of glass and shouldn’t be relied on.

Benteke is a shambles of a striker.

And everyone knows wilf is better on the left in a front three.

Our striker options are scant to say the least.

Sorry but we need strikers / players who can put the ball of in the back of the net. Roy was right last season when he said game after game we had no trouble creating chances but we missed so many clear chances it was almost laughable. In fact against Hertha Berlin it looked like the problem has not gone away. Benteke once again standing off side. It beggars belief that with his experience after all the seasons he's played he is still doing it.

alanlee11 05-10-2019 05:29 PM

Do Ayew and Benteke even count anymore?

Started this thread so long ago and the situation hasn't changed over several transfer windows - it's ridiculous how Roy has been left with such pathetically weak striking options - we get the ball into midfield fine, but no one knows what to do after that, because the person up front is not up to the job.

Ayew is poor, Benteke is a shameful excuse for a striker. Wickham is unfit/injured.
