Standards have fallen so low that many feel we should be happy that we have a guy on a books who can knock in goals against fodder without offering much else. Yesterday;s display was a fine example of folks being easily pleased and a goal disguising a poor performance. He was terrible until he scored the goal, which was a very good finish might I add. He certainly knows where the goal is, when you are putting it on a plate for him. What pissed me off is seeing him standing around fully marked, and demanding a pass to his feet while he's in a bad position, and then stretching his arms and shrugging his shoulders in dismay as if he was going to do something productive had a team mate passed to him when we know very well he'd have played another simple pass or fumbled over due to a first touch taking the ball away from his feet, where he would then need to run on to it. Even the other players around him on our team are hestitant to pass the ball to him because they know he will be vulnerable once on the receiving end of a pass which will usually lead to losss of possession. But really, 90 million for a tap in merchant? Is that what we should be grateful for??
