Yes, but AWB doesn't come with a 8 million price tag.

You're right. Dwight Gayle used to score 5 against lower league opposition and then come the Premier League scored **** all.

Jordon Mutch used to look like Frank Lampard in preseason, and then look what happened in proper games. Hoping Sorloth will do it the opposite way round.

Have we been scoring goals at a rate of one or two per match since late March yes. Does it matter if it's a striker that scores it, no. As long as he works for the team and does what Roy tells him to do, if in the context of team tactics it works I don't give a flying **** who actually scores. We've just continued on from where we left off last season suggests that we actually attack as a team now instead of the shitty one dimensional easy to stop sling it in from out wide lump it to one man tactics of yesteryear.

I call complete bulls*it mate. Strikers need to score goals. Sorloth will need to contribute something this season or he will be moved on.

Just realised he's been given the Number 9 shirt. I haven't seen him live, but by many accounts he is struggling.

More encouraging is his Danish highlights reel, which shows him as a confident front man, with a variety of finishes:

Just guessing, but Hodgson has probably spent all summer working on a specific system that used a big man that would hold the ball up and create space for a runner. Benteke isn't working out how he'd hoped, so when Sorloth gets the nod over Ayew, it may be more to do with him persisting with that system rather than rating him more that Ayew.

Hodson believes in that system, and will possibly persevere with it until the players are well drilled in a new one that doesn't rely so much on Benteke or Sorloth.

% wise he's won more in the air than Benteke

He even managed to beat VVD a few times in the limited time he was on the pitch

He doesnt look like the second coming of Chris Armstrong, but give the bloke a f *cking chance

Give him the same minutes on the pitch as Benteke and then decide if he has anything to offer

You must watch a different game. He was invisible when he came on both against Liverpool and yesterday. % wise in the air? That would put him nr.1 in the premier league two years running. Bullshit.

We only needed him for ten minutes. Whether he has or hasn't trained he must have ten minutes in him.
