    Fair enough you don’t need a 20 goal a season man to win it though. Spurs have Kane banging then in and are nowhere near.

    Just need consistency which Chelsea are good at.

    In all fairness when bringing up players like Yorke, you have to factor in that he played with a strike partner, 2 up front, in that case Cole who got 17. The output can be shared. If you play with 1 striker, you probably do need them hitting 20+.

    But that was back when two strikers were also the only forwards. Your wingers were more providing service and they were't wide forwards like we have so many of these days who are basically strikers coming in from out wide.

    As the game has progressed, it's becoming more common for players behind the striker and on the wings to chip in with more goals to allow for the lone striker.

    Yep, as shown with Liverpool. However Chelsea, well Chelsea until Sarri didn't really get the wingers doing that job particularly. The onus was to feed the striker.

    True, but from what we have already seen, it seems Sarri won't be that fussed about servicing one lone striker. Which is why I have an outside suspicion Morata may not be the hindrance some think. There are still goals in that side.

    Because it would be stupid to use an example from a time when the league was completely different to it is now :thumb

    Not since 2009 has a team won the league without a striker scoring at least 20 goals if anyone was asking.

    Nah lad don’t take this away from me I have you on the back foot. You said you couldn’t win the league without a 25 goals a season striker.

    I await him telling everyone how shit the forum is, posting porn everywhere, claiming it shows how shit the mods are before running over to the other forum to everyone there how shit this place is before returning with his tail between his legs.

    I’m a Brighton fan, so gay porn obviously.

    I’ve made two jokes about you tantrum, don’t flatter yourself. I don’t want you to have a tantrum and try to get yourself banned again x
