That's an odd one... Apart from both strikers not exactly being the best at linking play of the last 20 years, that's where the comparisons end. Numbers wise, there's no comparison. You may as well say what's the difference between Heskey and Auba... Pod's use from outside the box was being able to break the net from 30 yards plus. Auba scores from outside the box too. The most perplexing thing, for me, is why anyone would want to split hairs and have a problem them not being the most complete. Also, the exaggeration of the criticism, and where it comes from. He's a striker who scores with his eyes shut. Job done. Why aren't we crying about fullbacks who can't cross a ball, or midfielders and creative players so bad at their jobs, that they get sucked off for weeks for winning a header or endless excuses made for them and their appalling creative contributions?
