Aside from the team as a whole having to score more goals, Sow really has to up his game for the remainder of the season. No matter how you look at it, he has underperformed. He makes Nicky Maynard look productive. Needs to be hitting close to double figures by the end of the season or he has been a waste of money.

Likewise Agard, really should be hitting close to double figures by the end of the season.

We've been shocking on the goals front. Our lowest ever scoring season in League One is 45 goals in 2005/06 when we were last relegated to League Two. We're at 29 now with 17 games left so will have to average around 1 goal scored per game just to match that.

We really need to be looking at a new 'first choice' striker in the summer, ideally on a permanent as well as a creative mid.


So much of this. For years now we have bemoaned a lack of attempts from the lone striker and it was normally because they were getting no service.

Creativity is paramount when you play the formation we do and this is the reason why Sow Agard and even to a lesser extent Chucks struggle. Not cause they are not talented. They don't just become shit overnight, but they are not getting the service. 82 minutes last weekend to have a shot on goal is poor regardless of how Cov played.

As for now. We are fucked in my eyes. Nesbitt is the only creative one I can see and if he doesn't start I can see him going in the summer when we are preparing for league 2.

This annoys me. Why not have a shot from kick off? Yes the keeper will easily save it but it will register as a shot on goal which is more important than chances right? Against Coventry we had many shots blocked which don't count. We were much more fluid and looked more threatening than usual this season and after only 3 coaching sessions. Loads of positives from that performance.

Let it annoy you then. Just cause we show intent doesn't mean the application will improve. I might have the intention of running a marathon. I know the execution will be poor cause I am a fat fuck who sweats running to the fridge.

All I am saying is if we had a creative player we might have a bit more about us and not just take pot shots that get blocked. I am not talking about just Coventry, I am talking about the past 3 seasons. It is all my opinion so take it with a pinch of salt. But if you have no creativity teams will know what to do to nullify us al la Coventry.

He would certainly get the younger players motivated

Stokes is just the strikers version of Neil Lennon. Another King Cnut. Don't want either of them near MK.
