Goalscoring, do we have a problem on our hands?

Let's just take a moment to remind ourselves that Code started this thread early in 2008-09 and then bumped it in 2013-14.

Genius foresight.

Think its clear we re still desperately missing a 20 goal a season player.

It is -- tbh we look pretty good if you put Vardy or Harry Kane in our list.

 

In fact we look good compared to Arsenal as is.

 

In double fact we look better than all of them from our 2nd scorer down. 

 

So yes, we need a number one striker.

Take the 3rd letter of Paco,

 

Then the 4th,

 

then the 2nd ,

 

then the letter d (which is the 1st letter of Paco rotated 180 deg),

 

then spell CODE correctly.

Interesting to look at comments from near the start of the season. I had Benteke and Skrtel in my team - oops! Gomez was also in there, after a bright start, but unfortunately he suffered a bad injury. 

 

Obviously it all changed when Klopp came in. We can look forward to a bit of an overhaul this summer, and I'm predicting 10+ outgoing, and 6+ incoming, with 3-4 of the incoming to go straight into the team.

You're worse than he is.

Code launched this thread at the start of two really good seasons, driven by the goals of Torres and Suarez & Sturridge.

 

Right now, I'd just like a league goal this year.

Some Manc mate of mine,  obviously had to tell me that we are the team with most games without a goal this season in the PL, and the only team in the five top leagues in Europe to have gone four games without a goal.

 

Boston, we have a problem.

What's the main cause?

 

It's obviously not that our front 3 aren't good enough; they are, but none of them have shown it for at least a month. 

 

Similarly, Trent obviously still has the talent, but he's wasting it on mindlessly lashing balls against the first defender.

 

Injuries have meant that we haven't been able to play our best midfield (any three from Hendo, Fabinho, Thiago, Gini and Shaq) so we haven't been able to support the attackers properly or offer any alternatives. 

 

I'm genuinely baffled.  Thank fuck I'm not a manager.

We have been up against some of the worst antifootball teams there is the last few weeks. 
 

Its a factor, but not an excuse.

    • You must mean big league because there aren't many bigger clubs around than his current team 
    • His stats for stealing a fucking living are absolutely sky-high.
    • the more i watch of thiago is he looks a slightly less mobile version of gini. i know everyone says thiago's passing is great, but i am convinced that's just because he plays no look passes, i don't see any benefit over what gini contributes. maybe i am wrong, but i reckon we got thiago as gini's replacement, but we were able to fund it early by selling brewster and using lallana's wages and if barca had bid enough for gini, we'd have snatched their hands off. thank fuck they didn't. no way he's here next year though sadly. let's hope we get someone to add value using gini's wages - fuck knows where the fee will come from. 
    • I think you're right but I wish you weren't.    I don't  get why the club paid what it did for Thiago along with his wages yet not sort out a deal for Gini when there's very little age difference and he's already on the books.   He's a cracking player Gini, fit,  reliable and hard working. It doesn't make sense to me that he hasn't been offered a deal.   Because of his importance to the team, as far as I'm concerned,  it's a no brainer.
    • I've said I think if VVD stayed fit, this wouldn't be the problem it is.    As for this complete drop off, it has coincided with playing Henderson in defence and his place going to thiago - if I recall correctly Henderson's 1st game at centre back was Southampton, which was thiago's 1st start and this was our 1st defeat of the run we've had this year. That was the point our midfield stopped, except for the brief support it got from milner, when we actually picked up some points. So we dipped off when we 1st lost VVD, but the collapse went once we doubled down on destroying the midfield to support the defence. However, that didn't need to happen. We could have gone out and found someone and got it all signed and sealed like we did with VVD 3 years previous and he was ready to go. Once they waited till Gomez got injured, then everyone in the market place would fuck us. But it didn't take a genius to see he'd get injured, it's what he does.   It's massively bad planning. Going into the season the risk with vvd was there to see. We should have had plans in place in case this happened. We didn't need to act on it, but it's basic common sense if you're taking a gamble is you protect your position if it goes wrong. It shouldn't have taken both Gomez and Matip to get injured to see a reaction.    As for you comment about a rebuild - well we clearly need one soon as it's an aging squad. Assuming the players come back from injury at the level they were at before, I say carragher is right and we need 3 right through the spine. 2 of them should just be replacements for origi and Gini. The only one net new should be at centre back - and while unlikely, perhaps he's already at the club.
