None of us actually know there are plenty of examples of good strikers becoming goalscorers late and there are just as many who don't go on and progress. For every Drogba there's an Anichebe

thought he did OK today despite being horribly isolated most of the game

showed some good hold-up play a few times but he needs some confidence

He needs some help, a few steak dinners and a rest every now and then. Been asked to do the job of two men the past week.

how can someone say a PROFESSIONAL premiership footballer is rubbish when they are not at that level or never have been at that level before, criticize and have an opinion by all means, but to call them crap is a bit daft
Probably could've been pele himself if it wasn't for a bum knee.

With those kind of arguments it's a wonder anyone bothers being a professional footballer.

Well he's probably already a millionaire too as probably is anichebe
I'm not even talking about starting out. People point to drogba and Kane as late developers as if to make an argument for every young player who's not doing that well. The point is they are very unusual. Good players are normally good players at every level as they come up.

Thought DCL showed some good touches today. I'd like to see him play with Lookman more or as part of a front 2.

Yes, they score in the World Cup finals of their age group for example.

The only time you will see them as a front 2 would be in the championship.

Well said that man. Dealt with a cretinous argument in no uncertain terms.
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

Nah, we just think you're either a genuine idiot or a troll. Either way you're not NSNO standard. Sorry if that hurts your feelings.

Isn't the reality that you only play for the under20s cos you're not good enough for the under 21s. Look we go round and round in circles with all this. I see a player who's future lies in the championship and most see someone who will score between 15-25 goals in the top flight and be a great player. I hope I'm wrong. Only time will tell

Literally nobody is saying that. You've just built yourself a straw man and you're busy bashing it.
