Hope DCL can improve with more goals this year. He's not going to get us what we need over the course of the season by himself though. We need a goalscorer in as priority.
It's easy to blame his record, which I regularly do, but others need to chip in more. I love Bernard, but his record isn't good enough in front of goal and we rely to heavily on Ricky and Sig.
What worries me more though about DCL are the goals he scores as I think from his tally during the season they only contributed to about 4 points. He rarely scored the winning goal, they usually come when we're comfortable. A good striker is someone who gets you that goal to take 3 points when it's a tight game and that's what pushes you up the table, he doesn't do this

You could say that about Lukaku, and people did and still do at Man U, and he is vastly more experienced and cost 90m. DCL is just a kid learning his trade.

I do agree about your Bernard point though. We need to distribute the goals more evenly.

Possibly about the big goals and big teams, but his goals contributed in us getting an extra 18 points in his final season under the same parameters and that's what we're missing

Only so long you can call DCL a kid, he's nearly 23 isn't he?

What were you like at 23? I was fucking drunk idiot.
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

And? So were probably 99.9% of the people on here, but I wouldn't have if I was a professional like DCL earning hundreds of thousands a month, id also have a massive drug habit to go along with being a drunken idiot!!

Hope the weight of Sandro's legacy doesn't put too much pressure on him.

Shall I put duct tape over the name and wear my shirt again??

I keep seeing "senior" striker.  Please, no old grocks.  I'd be super happy with an "upside" striker that can share the load, and be an alternative to DCL (in tht they both play lots, the time is split like 60/40).

Think that would work very well.  We need energy from the position in Marco's system, not someone who sits back and just finishes the odd goal.

It's not Calvert Lewin who is the issue it's having Tosun and Niasse here

Agreed.  To me, DCL has showed the "floor" of what we expect from a striker in this offense.  It works with DCL in the lineup, much better than it did any other way.

Now, it's fair to say it didn't work IDEALLY because he's a sub-par finisher.  But we only want to bring in someone to provide a "ceiling" option, that might take us to another level.

The minimum of what we expect is 6 league goals?

The team in general wasn't exactly flying for the majority of last season to be fair to DCL.
If you look at Greame Sharp's record for us he more than doubled his goals per season when he was playing in a winning team.
DCL could be similar as he contributes all along the front line.
Ask yourself. "What would Lewis Hamilton say?"
