Not questioning any of that, and don't disagree with it either. But, the point was made that he won't "get close" to last years tally, which he already is.
Playing Devilís advocate here, but I imagine he was referring to last seasonís league tally which he is well down on. He was in with a shout of winning the Golden Boot last season, this year heíll be lucky to make Top 6.
The lad will likely play 15 more games this year, Iíd be worried if he didnít score more in total than he did for us. Would still have him here though mind.
