    It's a mentality issue (Damo has explained it in more detail) more than anything technical. Normally there isn't much time to get the shot away and our players are tending to snatch at chances or in rare occasions overthink.

    That may be so, but doesn't negate the point that we have enough chances, efforts and shots, from distance and otherwise, to put every game to bed but are riding a ridiculously low conversion rate. Indeed, proportionately one of the worst conversion rates in the League.

    To say the problem is that we are trying to "walk the ball in" is ignorant. We need more clinical finishing and, ultimately, more clinical finishers.

    Only 5 goals behind the team 12 points ahead, we might be missing a lot of chances but to say we can't score any goals is a bit silly

    I dont think its people saying we can't score (I know the thread title says that), but i think the issue is more the amount of chances we fail to take. Chelsea dont concede many where we seem to pay badly for our failure to convert chances. Our home record this season is awful and in the majority of those games (Chelsea, Everton, Boro, Liverpool, Spurs, Stoke) we missed some glaring chances. Creating is not the issue, putting the ball in the net clearly is. If Aguero doesn't score, its hard to see where the goals are going to come from any more.

    He's been flying but, sorry, he definitely does not have more end product than the others. He's got, what, 5 goals in the 4 months he's been flying? That's not significant end product. He's got fewer assists than Sterling in the same period who allegedly lacks it.

    He's exciting, he's promising, but he's not got reliable end product.

    Look at our front 5 and liverpools.

    We shouldn't be hoping to be 7 behind them, we should be 20 ahead. That's how Guardiola controls games, as he discussed at length in the press conference.

    Sorry, must have been someone else making the pointless and awful comparison with golf.

    Silva being THE worst culprit. I swear to god there must be 50 people on Bluemoon who can stick the ball in the back of the net better than he can. Genius everywhere on the pitch apart from when in front of goal and then he turns to shite. I mean look at that "effort" yesterday, where yet again he failed to even hit the target. The goal he scored Middlesborough was very nearly a fuck up as he shanked his shot from 6 yards and nearly passed it to Guzan. He's ridiculously inept.

    Silva is similar to Iniesta in that both aren't prolific goalscorers but do tend occasionally chip in. What you should really look at is the chances they create and the importance they have in their respective sides (Iniesta less so as age is catching up on him).
