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.
He is a fair bit off in the league, admittedly. Last season was his stand out for us, I'd argue that he'll get as many as his second best season for us (18), and won't be that far off last season's tally come the end of the season.
He get's a hell of a lot of criticism, when I think he's probably due to be cut some slack... it's a hell of a step up for him (mentally more than anything), and has had to adapt to a new playing style, all at the age of 24 still (which people forget).
Oh, and "lucky to make top 6"... he's 1 goal behind Sterling in 4th.
