McLaren gives Ashton the nod in his first squad

Recommended Posts

Hope he actually goes for a good team rather than trying to keep all the big names happy.

 

God, still can't believe what an anticlimax the whole Sven at WC06 was. What a retard.

Errr. yes he his. Crouch is gash. I think Ameobi scored more PL goals than him last year.

Crouch adds to the team in other ways, like Bellamy did when he was here.

I'd have Ashton over Crouch in either Newcastle's or England's team any day of the week....

absolutely, but I was just saying that Crouch adds something else to a team, not Goals, just as Bellamy did with us

I think Ashton adds more. Crouch's height offers us a target on set pieces and long balls but little else. Ashton is IMO, the nearest thing the English game has seen to Alan Shearer..

trouble is, the team that are succesful in the Prem aren't playing with "Traditional center forwards"

 

so shouldn't we try their way?

True, but then we don't have the in depth strength that they do...

 

For all their lack of traditional centre-forwards, their side is built around 5 players IMO:

 

Cech, Terry, Makelele, Cole, Lampard

 

Our equivalent is:

 

Given, Bramble, Parker, Duff, Emre

 

I think two of that core need to be improved for us, but then of course a striker is more important and needed more.
