    He makes great runs, but our sideways, sideways midfielders rarely pick them out. I rate him.

    Still u21 player, and very good one going by his records for England and uArsenal teams. Lets see how he develop in next two years.

    Then he should stop making those runs, drop deeper and help us to progress the ball up the pitch.

    You want a striker to stop making dangerous runs? Interesting.

    I’m not only talking about their dribbling skills, but how they drop deep to receive the ball, contributing in the build up, making passes to help with keeping possession, creating overload to progress our play up the pitch.

    For example, this player is much more talented. He will become a much better player than nketiah. Nketiah can only be a top class poacher at best.

    Bar Mbappe, they are all strikers from the last generation. I don't disagree with you as all are of the highest order. Comparing any young striker bar Mbappe to these players is unfair.

    I disagree with Mbappe' inclusion as he usually plays wide and his game is about exploiting space either with his incredible dribbling or explosive pace.

    Do you think Leicester should sack Vardy or Dortmund Haaland? There is more than one type of striker.

    Our problem is still our midfield. I don't Eduard fixes this issue.

    I've never heard of Amine Gourock to be honest. Maybe he will be class.

    I don't disagree with you that Nketiah has a limited skillet, but a speedy, poacher, who is calm in front of goal can be an asset. He's scored at every level he's played at and the manager seems to believe in him.

    Pretty blatantly obvious that can't have a poacher in a team that creates **** all.

    So are you suggesting that Auba and Nketiah are the problems or our creativity issues are?

    He is the kind of striker who needs to be fed, doesnt create much for himself or others so more likely to be a good plan B when we need a goal and are bursting forward or in the Europa/Carabao squads unless he develops further. Can be dangerous but our midfield need to look out for him more.

    Remember AM was calling Bielsa clueless and abused him for starting Bamford ahead of Nketiah?

    Please, don't embarrass yourself here with rating Bamford over Nketiah. Nketiah is without a doubt a better player and has more talent, and that's without saying that he is great or something. We are c**p going forward, and that problem existed before Nketiah, better strikers struggled here

    People keep talking about how limited he is, but our main issue is how limited our main attack is.

    Auba, Laca, Pepe are terrible footballers. Laca is not only a terrible footballer but he’s a slob too. Then you have Pepe who plays like a little kid.

    It’s hard for me to go after Eddie when we have these losers in our team.

    He's doing what he's supposed to do. The midfielders need to fix up and do their job better.

    Eddie would score goals if he played for Aston Villa. Auba would get more chance there too.

    So it’s a system and player issue too.
