Fulham - Strikers Drought Unraveled?
It`s a theme that seems to have carried on from last year!
A theme that continually suggests that our strikers do not score their fair quota of goals, not that it did us much harm last year when we stormed to our highest ever league finish.
The mutterings will, undoubtedly, carry in, I doubt they`d even cease if one of our strikers was leading the charge for the golden boot!
It`s just one of those things that people get embedded in their mindset and continually believe to be true.
Therefore, it`s interesting to hear Bobby Zamora receive a vote of confidence from within the side with Brede Hangeland actively remarking about our Bobby,
"I think he`s a good finisher, he just needs a bit of luck in front of goal."
Or possibly a few more chances created for him!
It`s noticeable, in recent games, that our shot, including those off target, regularly sits in single figures whilst other clubs whose statistics I enviously gaze at invariably average fifteen or so.
So is that our real problem when it comes to our striker - we don`t make enough chances to even give them a fair chance of a decent conversion rate?
I`d be interested to hear your views!
