Didn’t think we had a 20+ striker i now see most are also agreeing it’s not rocket science Mckenna but as mentioned on here already if we have ambitions of going up someone needs to get their finger out and get a decent goal scorer in if we have money then stop bragging go get him.
but i think we will romp this league we are only just starting we will next week win by a couple of goals by Burns which will set us on a run to gain 100 goals and 100 points i must be positive to post on here and i’m sure this will also see Mckenna get manager of the season and see at least 4 of our players get over 20 goals each plus a great FA cup run which could see us lift the cup for the second time and see us qualify for Europe again keep on believing. there.🤥
But top two we will have to do better the team in my eyes don’t seem to be working as well as it should i’d make 5 changes against MK Dons , Leigh for Davis Jackson for Ladapo Edwards for Burns Ball for Evans I know a lot of changes can work against you but after watching today second half Maybe Aluko for Harness i’m sure Mckenna must be thinking why can’t we be more comfortable when teams try to squeeze us at the back still Wolfie should be back which could give us a bit more stability. Does anyone else wonder if we have paid over the top for Davis?
1 goal,17 shots in total for us yesterday i’m sorry i still don’t see where our 20+ goal scorer is,It cost us last season will it be the case again this season a Striker with an eye for the goal is a must before the end of August.
Someone who since last season has been capped by his national side and done ok but is this going to reflect in his performances for us because i noticed Saturdays effort was not all that and to be honest not heard him really having a good game in any of the friendlies hope i’m wrong.
As many have said Edwards done more in ten minutes than Burns in eighty ,and Aluko has to start next week he just adds so much to our midfield/attack something we seem to lack when he doesn’t play i liked Jules think he could work with Ladapo given the chance would be good to see. Still work to be done.
I just don’t see why they have us to go up via top two,I know it’s a friendly but it’s like watching us last season prone to conceding and no one in the box to cause a presence and look to finish. Early doors i know but just my opinion .
Against a very strong side in the first half but although they scored 4 we too created some half chances but once the second half started and Palace made some subs we matched them and even scored two i know it’s not the finished article but we are looking good and if we add a striker of quality we will almost certainly be top 6 or dare i say it top two.
Some good moments but we have to remember Palace are a real decent side they have taken their chances and clinical at that the better side in front but we have had our odd moments Ball a great shot tipped away by the keeper and a corner with better connection from Edmundson could of been a different half time result but i’m sure play like this every week against lesser opponents we’ll be there abouts need a striker though.
