So we've gone from (roughly speaking) 23 crosses per match to 15...if his goals ratio had declined pro-rata to this we might be onto something. But 15 crossing attempts per match is not exactly feeding on scraps is it??

One point I didn't touch upon re: Salad - he more than anyone would understand the mental struggles players go through. He was the star from the England tour in the summer of 91' and people were saying he'd be the next star in the English game.
He faced almost two years out the game, and had to change various aspects of his game to compensate for the injuries he had and losing a yard of pace. When he made his first come back in 92/93 the expectations on him were massive as Wright had been gone nearly a year, Bright was very close to leaving and the cracks were slowly appearing. He played roughly 3 months , got recalled to the England squad (from memory) before having another cruciate ligament injury, and this time he didn't return until October 94' by which time Palace had been relegated.
It must be an incredibly lonely existence watching from a far and everyone kept questioning would he be the same player, would his body allow him to compete. I even remember Smith publicly criticising him a few months after his return stating he wanted more from the player.

He will never be a Jordan Ayew or a Cameron Jerome - thatís why Liverpool sold him. However he can and will score goals. He has the talent to do so. He has composure and technical ability required. Heís not an Akinbiyi or a Gestede. His legs havenít gone. If we get decent crosses into the box for him he will eventually score regularly. His luck will change and his confidence will improve. Itís only a matter of time. Itís when not if.
2 years 6 months since he last scored a goal from open play with either foot

Aliens will one day land on the White House lawn .... as you say .. itís just a matter of time .......

His return hatrick, I can't remember who it was against (Bristol City?) Was a magical day

Smith whilst great that season could be a *********** in the press
