Our strikers....

Post by 1964white » Mon Apr 16, 2018 7:18 am

Seriously, 4 passes between them :shock:

More importantly, no shots & no goals too

Roofe exempt from the ineptness of these three

Its a joke, if we had been tasked with going out and signing the 3 worst strikers possible then we over achieved in the task :lol:

The sad thing is Lasogga isn't even that bad player, it's poor coaching and loss of confidence. I guess when you're dropped to the bench for someone who can't score it won't be good for your morale.

He's sh*te

Can't run, can't turn a defender, can't jump for headers, can't hold the ball up, can't pass.

55k salary a week for a big lump of a striker who shoots now & again & scores a few goals

Hamburg had problems with Lassoga too & will be looking to offload come the end of the season, fortunately he won't be at ER next season

On your bike Lassoga :cycling: he'd probably fall of that too !

I must admit i have no idea who earns what. That is alarming though. Nearly 3 million quid for 10 goals

Do you know if we are paying him 55k or with him being on loan are we only paying part of it? I know you don't have access to our books, but have your read/heard anything about it?

He really isn't. I remember people were saying the same things about Wood too. Lasogga hasn't scored any penalties, Vydra has 7/19 for example, so they distort goal tallys. You just know he'll end up at somewhere like West Brom and score loads.

I heard / read we were paying him £15k pw (Hamburg making up the rest) which is on par with our other top earners.

Apparently we are paying 16k of his salary Harry, he's not even worth that when you compare what Beckford & Bechhio gave us for much less wages

Once we got Wood fit he had much more than Lassoga has in his locker.

Can't see a premiership club paying £15m plus for our current on-loan lump

Yeah Norfolk mentioned a similar amount. It's a lot for very poor return/

Even though we've been out of the top flight for so long, I reckon that Lasogga, Ekuban and Grot are our worst performing set of strikers since we've been relegated.

Oh for the days of Beckford and Becchio.

Indeed Harry

And we all know who are responsible for lumbering us with those three plus many other stooges !

Another summer of those type of signings & we can kiss the championship goodbye :(

Hi ok I’m going to say it, I never thought I’d say this but here goes, gulp!! I’d rather have..... no I’m gonna say it I’d rather have Steve Millwall Morrison here than that useless lump Lassie, I know SMM wasn’t much good but at least he tried and that’s far more than you can say for Lassie :evil: :evil: :evil:

Sorry rant over

No prem team will even consider signing Lasogga permanently, I don't even think a Championship team would consider it. He'll have to go on loan again I think as there won't be many takers after his hit-and-miss performances in the championship this season and Hamburg will have to subsidise his wages.

Someone told me he is out of contract at the end of this season with his parent club Hamburg looking likely to be relegated. So Lassoga is gonna have to take a serious look at his finances as I can't see any club paying him the same salary rate he's on now

He bullied us & played our fans to a tee when Millwall beat us 3-4. Worked his socks off whilst our soft lot couldn't handle him, MOTM for me
