What's the thoughts lads on our striker situation? Who now gets the nod up top? For me griffiths deserves the next 3/ 4/ 5 games. We've seen klimala get the nod, the boy will run all day but seldom scores, we've a £5 million ajeti who's no scored in what 3 months and up until recently got plenty opportunities, then there's our £30 million edouard, he looks half arsed to me yet every time lennon needs big big help more often than not he'll turn to griff and again more often than not griff turns up with the goal. Surely now, enough of this " not match fit nonsense " get him playing and he'll be match fit. We all know griffiths to use Lennons term " is a rogue" but by god the boy knows where the net is and right now aswell as needing to toughen up defensively, we need to start banging the goals in. For me as I say griffiths now needs to start. what yous think lads?

Ad play Garry get 60 mins into his legs and build from there he might bang a few then get him off. sevci do it with auld Defoe.

We should have two up front. Agree give him games and he will get natch fit.

The problem we have is only Edouard can link up play when he play’s in the lone striker role.
To be fair our 4 strikers prefer a partner up front.
But I don’t want to go back to our disastrous 3 at the back.
I think if we keep carrying on as it stands, we have no chance of winning the league.
Lennon need a different approach similar to last January but the 3-5-2 hasn’t worked this season.
He should try a 4-4-2 and pray it works and gets our season started.
One thing is for sure he needs to take a gamble on a different formation and we clearly need 2 strikers to be playing every game.

All our strikers are capable of scoring if given the right support and service. If we continue with a lone front man snuffed out by eight defenders, is it any wonder they get frustrated and fed up flogging the same dead horse!
Michael Stewart nailed it before Sunday’s game, we don’t get to the by line anywhere near often enough and when we don’t, we just run into a crowded 18 yard box. On the odd occasions when we kept wide and got in behind their fullbacks stuff happens. We definitely have the players, just not a management team who can deploy them correctly. We also need a bit of animation and emotion from the sidelines. Always remember MON and his team constantly encouraging and geeing up throughout games. The sight of Lennon slumped in a chair like smivvy out the bash street kids doesn’t exactly spread emotional enthusiasm.

BB-4-4-2 Taylor at fullback I don’t understand the criticism he gets at least first and foremost he can defend irrespective of other weaknesses and we need to stop shipping goals. We don’t have a loan striker at the club so it got to be Eddy if he can get his ar$e in gear and Griffiths or A. N. Other up front beside him. As I said we need to stop losing goals and stop Eddy needing to drop too deep. The solution seems fairly self evident I don’t know for the life of me why Neil doesn’t try it.

Two up front and everybody's happy.

Personally I would much prefer to go with the starting line up from the Lille match at Cetic park.

You don't need to play a 442 to get 2 up front. what's wrong with 433 can play many permutations of this. 2 strikers with christie for eg. Or 2 with a winger or 1 with 2 CAMS. So many choices depending on oppponent.

22 Dec 2020 13:57:51
The only person who doesn't see it, is Lennon for some reason?
Surely when he acquired a fourth striker in the last window - even assuming he didn't fancy Klimala - he must have thought to permutate any pair from Griff, Eddy, Ajeti and MOI, but he persists with one isolated striker to accommodate a system that is very hit-and-miss.
Now Mikey Johnston is fit, there is no excuse, not to play 4-4-2 and he must also wise-up to making appropriate substitutions as-and-when and not wait 65-70 mins, or until we are desperately chasing a game.
