No you still miss the point, but nevermind, we'll just end up going round in circles!stYx wrote:Im sorry mate, but if you think that makes him a threat because he has tons of shots and missed them all then im not sure how to respond. I suppose its monkeys and typewriters in that situation!
Crouch has already scored this world cup hasnt he? Someone who scores goals is more of a threat than someone who f*cks them all up!
Course he's a threat. Do you honestly believe then that when the ball lands at his feet and he's gearing up for a shot, the defenders and goal keeper sit back and think 'ahh its ok, he'll miss'!? The answer is no. They'll be expecting it to go in, hence its a threat.stYx wrote:Lampard has played in all matches from start to finishes hasnt he? How many goals has he scored from how many 'shots'? In my opinion someone who can belt the ball all around the goal but in the back of the net is of no use to us. He might as well be skipping and picking flowers for all the good its doing us. But on a serious note, you cant actually believe he is a threat, can you?
You're right, its of no use to us if he's not scoring goals, I never debated that.
I'd have tarred him with the same brush as all the other underachievers and underperformers in the squad, without a doubt. As I told you, I'm defending him as a good player on the whole, having witnessed him at club level.stYx wrote:Like i said i dont watch or follow club football, so i cant comment on that aspect. But i do understand where your coming from with your arguments. But look at it from my/other point of view. If you had not seen Lampard play for Chelsea, and had only watched his World Cup matches, would you still think that much of him?
