So how is he a decent back-up if he is not good at anything? A decent back-up would be someone that is good a thing or 2 but lacks on other attributes.He's a decent back up but he's too limited to be relied upon in a title race. He has no stand out attributes. He's not super quick, he's not super strong, he's not a dribbler, his pressing is poor, he's not dominant in the air, he hates passing and isn't good at it on the rare occasions that he does and most of his goals are scraps put on a plate for him. He's done well based on his limitations but we are seeing them roost right now. It's clear as day that he'll do nothing against a deep block. People got carried away as they always do and now reality is in our faces.
I've never been a fan but his output up until the last few weeks has been good relative to his ability. I'm of the opinion that if he wasn't an English Hale End product, people would be far more willing to acknowledge that he's ordinary at best.So how is he a decent back-up if he is not good at anything?

Sorry but your second striker should be able to start at many bottom teams, yet ours would be only a starter for a championship team.
