The flip side to that is that we're passing to him in these areas because he doesn't have the pace to vary the passes to him. He's working laterally and dropping deep because he can't go the other way. What we really need is a striker who can do what he does but also spin and offer a different line of attack as well.
He's decent at doing what he does but he's not really capable of creating anything for himself either, so as much as we feel for him it's also down to is limitations too.
There’s an element of chicken and egg but i do really think this is at least party down to our lack of incisive passers in midfield.
At Besiktas he was (firstly playing against crapper players yeah) but secondly getting fed by people like Ozyakup, who do pass progressively and do give him stuff to feed on.
Maybe when we’re clicking a bit more it will start dropping to him, but atm we’re still quite low down the table in terms of amount and quality of chances created which of course is bad news for our strikers.
