Alan Sugar

Recommended Posts

We're halfway through the season and the player is still down on confidence, how long will it take him to find the confidence? Moreover, how much confidence does he need? I know the lad puts the effort in but he's not doing the job he was brought in to do. He was supposed to be the goalscorer we were all craving for since last January but we are now back to just relying on Adebayor. We had some really naff signings during the Sugar era but he did manage to persuade Klinsmann to join.

Soldado has 10 goals and 3 assists so far. Yes he has had a few penalties but he is dispatching them effortlessly into the corners. Berbatov wasn't exactly great when he first signed neither was luka or bale give the guy a chance.

The thing is how much of a chance are you prepared to give him? He was brought in as an experienced player (28?) in order to bang on goals for us. The stats you quoted is for all competitions, which doesn't add up to very much for a so-called experienced striker. Bale was young and inexperienced, Berbatov got going about November in his first season and had Keane and Defoe as competition on form, Modric was an overrated rat-boy anyway.

The Beast took a while to settle as well.

Yes, Soldado does need to sort it out, but there's no point in just abandoning him.

More to the point, there's no point in worrying about anything Lord Twat has to say about THFC
