Whilst that is true, it’s also true to say that Gabby fluffed a chance that many strikers would have buried to make the game safe. He is one of my favourite players but he isn’t a natural striker.
Nope, refer the rags game at old toilet… !Think we have had so many games where we have not scored against mid table sides. Is it 6 already this season against those kind of teams? I don't see that as a coincidence. Seems like their center backs are more than happy to let the false 9 wander knowing they will never make the correct move like a striker and and arrive at the box. and now since we don't have a central focal point its easier to always show the wingers outside to cross and always cover the inside. basically we never create quality chances as a result it is all like wenger arsenal at his end.
We really don't know. Comparisons are pointless.In fairness to Jesus, most PL strikers wouldn’t have had the technique to both hold off the defender and have that touch. His finish was rash but on his weaker foot and off balance. Had he scored that, it would have been a sensational goal.
On topic, we have been better without a 9 for sometime now. Especially in Europe.
not that I think. we lack that direct option when we are behind to just send it to the striker and have a shot. we instead have to construct the perfect goalI think it affects us mentally and we lose some bite when we go a goal down, plus teams just defend better. Even Phil Jones will become Phil Maldini.
Okay, I've taken it a bit to far with the Phil Jones analogy....
