His initials are LB....
But he's had a decent half season in the championship once..

RE: Over 200 games

Yes. He'll be a good Championship player.

We're not in the Championship, so will not be losing any sleep if he is sold.

His strike rate was poor in the early stages of his career because he was young and learning and had injuries.

This season he got a good run of games, has had experience of international football and has clearly improved - hence the 9 or 10 goals he got in a shite Coventry side and the player of the month award he won.

His stats will look poor, because of the start of his career - but apart from the great players, most young strikers have a difficult start to their career.

He has been poor for us, but unlucky on a couple of occasions. The longer he's gone without his first goal. the harder it has become to score the first goal. Especially when other strikers are in form, meaning he doesn't get his chance.

RE: Over 200 games

ok granted he nay have had a poor start to his career.

So let's look at his last club, Coventry....92 games 19 goals

in the championship ffs.

I'd rate him behind all our first teamers and 3/4 youth players

He's gash

RE: Over 200 games

Or look at his most recent season. 9 goals in 25 before he joined us, which is pretty good.

What's the point in looking at a players past? That's been and gone, what we wanted was a player in good form and getting goals in our division now.

Not somebody who has done it "in the past"

Looking at his stats for us, 0 goals in 6 starts plus many 10 minute glimpses of him, is not good enough.

But I still think if he'd been given a run in the side he'd get goals.

That I agree with. I think he's better than his stats give him credit for.
