We are historically absolutely useless at recruiting strikers at whichever level we play at. How many strikers have scored 15 goals in a season for us over the the last 25 years. AJ. Murray. Did Clinton or Dougie do it? It has certainly been our most problematic position since promotion.

Yes, in 2001/02 Freedman 20 league goals and Morrison 22.

Not in the premier league mind, Chris Armstrong is another, the first players name I had on the back of my shirt. He scored 15 in the premier league and 22 the year we won the old 1st division (championship).

So because I'm incredibly bored at work I've listed our top scorer in the league since 2000. My conclusion is that, with the exception of that one Benteke season, we've been bloody useless up front since promotion. Also, I miss AJ, Murray, Clinton and Ambrose.

00/01 - Morrison - 14 (Championship)
01/02 - Morrison - 22 (Championship)
02/03 - Johnson - 11 (Championship)
03/04 - Johnson - 28 (Championship)
04/05 - Johnson - 21 (Premier League)
05/06 - Johnson - 15 (Championship)
06/07 - Morrison - 12 (Championship)
07/08 - Morrison - 16 (Championship)
08/09 - Kuqi - 10 (Championship)
09/10 - Ambrose - 15 (Championship)
10/11 - Vaughan - 9 (Championship)
11/12 - Ambrose - 7 (Championship)
12/13 - Murray - 30 (Championship)
13/14 - Puncheon/Gayle - 7 (Premier League)
14/15 - Murray - 7 (Premier League)
15/16 - Cabaye/Dann/Wickham/Bolasie - 5 (Premier League)
16/17 - Benteke - 15 (Premier League)
17/18 - Milovojevic - 10 (Premier League)

I donít understand whatís happening to Benteke, his 1st season was promising, itís like heís literally forgotten how to score a goal.

I don't think he's been the same since he came back from the first injury. I wonder if he ever really recovered. Hopefully now with another injury break he can get sorted out and start scoring again.

Ayew would be better playing upfront with Benteke but Roy doesn't start with 2 strikers.
Sorloth i don't think will ever be good enough. Doesn't look anywhere near Premiership standard.
Benteke is a proven goalscorer but for whatever reason (confidence?) he's not scoring. I still think if he scores 3 or 4 in 5 or so games he'll be back to his best.
Wickham is a decent striker who i reckon would score 15+ in a season but he's too injury prone. Not sure if he'll play a Premiership game for us again.

Drop the strikers and go with:

My team for Monday
Wayne Hennessey
Wan Bissaka
sakho
Tomkins
Patrick van Aanholt
Meyer
James McArthur
Luka Milivojevic
Kouyata
Andros Townsend
Wilfried Zaha

Doubt it will happen but I like this. None of our strikers are scoring so we may as well sacrifice them to get Meyer in the side and hopefully increase our creativity. We know Zaha and Townsend have got a goal in them.

My team also. We played great with Wilf and Andros up top at the end of last season albeit with RLC in the team. Andros will be buzzing after his brace last night

My thoughts exactly regarding Andros. Possibly needed a game like that to really kick him into gear this season.

Would definitely be a fan of him and Wilf running defenders ragged and then we've always got the target men to bring on with half an hour to go (or 10 minutes to go with Roy's usual substitutions) as a plan b.

I would be very tempted by this, but I think it's worth trying to get something out of Ayew.
