Best Striker?

Recommended Posts

hard to say really. at the moment i don't think we have one striker who must start every game. depends who we are playing, what style we are aiming for and who else is starting.

 

AJ is probably one of the strikers who will always be near the top of the list if not top of this list for his work rate alone. But i don't think any of our strikers are untouchable

for me its out of A.J, Yak, and Vaughan

 

A.J - maybe 10 goals a season, loads of assists, alot of hard work.

Yak - when provided 20 goals a season, quite a few assists, not much work rate.

Vaughan - Mixture of both but bit less class, but imo will be alot better than both of them in a few years, do we start to develop him in the first team now?

 

Lets have them all :D

 

-----------------Howard--------------------

--Jags----Yobo---------Lescott---Baines--

 

------------------Carsley-------------------

-------Arteta----------------Cahill---------

 

--Vaughan----------------------------A.J--

--------------------Yak---------------------

 

Only messing haha, we would get slaughtered with that lineup.

I'm not going on "best striker" more of a striker who is worth his place.......

 

1 .. ANDREW JOHNSON

2 .. JAMES VAUGHAN

3 .. VICTOR ANICHEBE

4 .. AYEGBENI YAKUBU

 

As far as i'm concerned Yakubu still looks lazy and totally uninterested, all the moves yesterday came to an end when the ball reached him, i still havent seen him win a challenge for a header even against smaller defenders, i think Michael Owen wins more Headers and he's a midget in comparison. In my opinion Anichebe causes defences far more problems, and deserves to be ahead, Yakubu will have to work and try a lot harder to convince me.

As for Andrew Johnson AND James Vaughan we already know what they can do and with the new Football Playing Midfield pushing balls through for them, i think they will score a lot of goals, unless Moyes spoils it all by bringing back Hibbert, Stubbs and Neville, the worst culprits for the big hoof upfield.

Yak scored one yesterday and with his dummy created Arteta's.

 

That's an OK afternoon isn't it?

 

I can't see Anichebe playing that dummy.

 

Just because he doesn't run around like a headless chicken doesn't make him worthless.

I couldnt see Anichebe playing that Dummy either, because he was'nt on the pitch so we will never know.

 

I didnt say anything about Yakubu being Worthless, my Choice's were based on who deserves to be playing on Merit.

 

The first goal Yakubu scored was from about 2 yards out into an open goal after AJ laid it on a plate, the goal yesterday was provided by a brilliant pass from Pienaar which left him in the clear with no defender near him, you or i could have scored both those goals.

 

I havent seen him do anything that the other strikers could'nt have done equally well, but the other strikers do have a bit more to their game, so i am not going to get excited and boost him up as someone special until he shows me he can do something special.

Thats my opinion and you are quite entitled to agree or disagree with it, thats your perogative but it wont alter my view.

Its obvious no matter how many Yakubu score's a percentage of everton fans wont like him because of his way of playing. If he is running round like a headless chicken like A.J he wouldnt be around the box to score, that was so many fans critisisms of A.J because he was never in the box, put the 2 lads together they might just make a hell of a partnership.

 

I really do like Vaughan up front, but he is still quite young and were going to have to keep real care of him to keep him injury free, for this season id play vaughan coming of the bench with Yak + A.J up front, that way we can nurse him into the first team for years to come.

 

If we can get a good center midfielder in who does the job Osman has been doing the last 2 games, but its a bit more physical, lets get him in and play some 4 1 3 2 which would then suit all our players and we might see us rocket up the league and a few cups runs and maybe a Eufa cup WIN :P

 

----------------Howard-----------------

 

Jags----Yobo---------Lescott----Baines

 

-----------------???----------------------

 

--Arteta-----Cahill-----Pienaar/Osman

 

-----------A.J---------Yakubu-----------

 

Wer 1 quality defensive midfielder from having a team capable of challenging the big 4.

 

Personally for now id like to see how Graveson would do there, I know he's more of an attacking type of player but Madrid bought him as a defensive midfieder so the must have seen something he could do there.

Gravs way off the pace, Thats why he never got in the Madrid team on a regular basis.

 

Well, they bought him as a defensive midfielder, and then realised he can't sit there and defend; it's not how he plays. He is not a "makelele-like" player. That was why he never got in on a regular basis.

Best striker? Anichebe by a long way.In the modern game its so important to hold up the ball in forward areas to allow midfield to link up in attacking play or to relieve pressure when your under the cosh.AJ and Vaughn don't do this very well.Mac is poor at it and the Yak....................

If it's that straight forward Licker why havent we been banging them in for years??

 

I'v lost count of the amount of times one of our players has ballooned a chance like Yak put away against Bolton & it's been a long time since I'v seen anyone in a blue shirt beat a keeper one on one.

 

Correct me if I'm worong but for the last couple of years we've been crying out for a player who can score and when we get one just because he's a lazy fucker it's all of a sudden easy to score goals and anybody can do it. Beattie & Bent start off an embarrassingly long list of actuall professional footballers who couldnt!

Marcus Bent scored 2 on saturday and Beattie now has 10 for sheff utd thats how easy it is. :D :D

 

 

Due you honestly think Yakubu looks anything like an 11 million pound striker cos i dont, but when he starts looking a bit interested and starts poppin in 20 goals then i might think otherwise. But somehow i dont think i'll hold my breath until he does.

 

He'll have to start working to stay in our side Moyes wont carry any passengers, and personally when Vaughan and Johnson are back fit i cant see him getting into the team, but i will willingly eat humble pie if its otherwise.

No and I havent said I do. I think he's looked lazy but I also know he's had virtually no pre season and didnt train at all during the 3 weeks after the news of his possible transfare to us. He's looked better & sharper each game he's played, he did alot of running yesterday which you wouldnt have seen on the TV and the only real negative I can give about yesterdays performance is his first touch was shite for most of the game.

 

I just think he needs a little time and Moyes to play to his strengths more.

 

I also think (well know in my mind!) the two goals scored by Yak would have been missed by our squad n the past whereas now when we put the ball in the box if it hit's the Yak he will hit the target and that is something we have been missing for years, even AJ last season wasnt exactly clinical when put through!

 

As for Beattie & Bent, ALL wigan fans if given a gun would end Marcus Bents suffering & Beattie has found his level once again!

 

Because we didn't have Pienaar AND Arteta, aplitting defenses apart with clinical one touch passing.

 

Yes creativly we have got better (miles better!!!) but we have created in the past also just failed to finish!

Bents goal scoring record in the Prem dwindles in comparison to Yak's, as does Beatties.

 

Also, Beattie has managed it in the Championship... big deal.

Yup. Also, when you create more you need someone to put it away, which Yak is bloody good at. Can't say I think the same about the other 4.

Your all looking and basing Yaks scoring ability on the past, i dont care if he's Climbed Mount Everest in the past, its what he's doing at present is what i'm interested in, and so far he's done fook all, but as i've said if he bangs in 20 goals i'll eat humble pie.

Evertons best striker?

 

1. Andrew Johnson...Workrate, passion and at times goals.

 

2.James Vaughan...Potential, goals and workrate.

 

3.Anichebe...for potential also McFadden for same reason.

 

4.Yakubu...Because people keep telling us he can score loads of goals.

 

 

Nice to have a choice of types, for different types of defence.Can Moyes keep them all happy?

Come on lets be constructive! AJ with his back to goal just gets overpowered . Mac always turns down a blind alley.Vaugh is just too lightweight.Yak has a poor first touch.Vic is the only striker we have who holds the ball and has the strength to upset defenders,And if you don't think thats one of the key skills of the modern striker you haven't watched Drogba much.

Let's be realistic, a target man who can hold the ball up is not the be all and end all of success. Do Barcelona have an Anichebe. Drogba (how you can compare them is beyond me) target man? Manure? etc etc. They manage just fine.

 

On another note, being able to hold the ball up does not make anyone the best striker at a club. I'd consider someone who can put the ball in the net a better striker than someone who'll score not very many but hold the ball up.

This is going to turn into an Anichebe debate!......His type of style ie big front man back to goal,

target man, able to turn defenders AND score goals, takes a hell of a lot longer to perfect than the type of game Vaughan and Owen play ie speed of a defenders shoulder and good finishing!

 

If he improves at his present rate and there's no guarantee he will....then he could be a hell of a player.Hard to handle,create goals for others, capable of surging runs and scoring goals!!

Could be the perfect foil to Vaughan.Those two could give defenders nightmeres in a couple of years.

Your quite right Barca/ Manu dont have that type of player but they normaly tend to pass the ball thro midfield and keep the ball to relieve pressure not thump it long as we do.Didn't for a minute compare Vic to Drogba just pointed out that strenghth holding the ball up is important in todays game.And as for your last point I agree the ball in the net is main aim and I would say Vics goals per minutes on the park ratio this season is pretty good.

Give me an Vaughan/Owen/AJ type player every day of the week over someone like Anichebe. Be a hell of a player? I very much doubt it. You're right that his style of play does take longer to perfect but how can a 19 year old lad be knackered after 10mins of football? His fitness levels are absolutely atrocious for someone of his age. Let's face it he's never going to be above Vaughan, Cahill, AJ in the pecking order. He's hot a chance of being ahead of Yak if he doesn't improve and Faddy if he doesnt become more consistent. Also in the next few years Jutkiewiscz and Baxter should come through who already looks better than him. Anichebe is no better than Emile Heskey.

Important yes, but just because he's the only one of his type at this club doesnt mean he's our best striker. All of our other strikers are streets ahead of him right now in terms of all round ability, I wouldn't play him ahead of anyone.

Anichebe + Vaughan will lead the line for us in a few years together I rekon, if moyes can keep them here and keep them happy here anyway, I cant see moyes keeping all 5 strikers happy tbh, because all of them are going to want first team, we even have Jukiewics + Baxter coming through aswell so strikers wont need to be on the shopping list!

 

at the moment we need to really bag are chances because we can't expect hundreds of chances to score, that why Yakubu up front is our best option at the moment, we no if he gets a chance it will go in thats why id put him before Faddy + Vic. When A.J + Vaughan are back and we have 5 strikers avaliable were going to have to go back to 442 or im sure a few will want to leave.

If you rate him only as good as Heskey now and he's still not 20 that will do me.Never above AJ Tim and Vaughn? with their fitness records only time will tell. I must admit like you I do prefer to watch that type of player,but they are all like highly bred racehorses and spend more time on the treatment table than on the pitch.So for me until Moyse has a head transplant and stops Neville Stubbs and Hibbo hoofing it every chance they get Vics my first choice.

I can see were your coming from about the long ball mate, we probabaly are best playing vic if there all going to do that, lately with longballers out the team, we havent done it as much, and we have played some nice football. IMO Vic always looks best coming off the bench, dont no what anyone else thinks? I did doubt Victor about ever being as good as vaughan but if he gets a bit fitter then im sure he could, he's proved me wrong lately and is in great form, Moyes should get him + Yakubu on a heavy training schedule to get there fitness up a bit. We have 2 of the brightest striking prospects in Vic + Vaughan who are good mates and know eachothers game well, I just hope moyes keeps hold of them.

Yeah Steve I bet you wet your pants for a different reason when you heard that we were signing Beattie a couple of seasons ago same now with Yakubu.

Whatever he's done before means sweet Fook all, its what he's done since he's been here that concerns me. And as someone as already said, for the amount of time spent on the pitch Anichebe's goal ratio stands up to anyones at the club.

 

I think i'm in agreement with Blue 250, i get the impression that some peeps dont want Victor to make it, Wonder Why that is. ???

agree with you there i also get that feeling! dont know why though cos for me he is a real handful when he plays! His first touch and fitness arent the best i know but he's only 19 so he has years to improve! The way i see it most 19 year old are playing in the reserves so he's done well to break through already so come on guys lets not doubt the kid we have a really good young player here, lets get behind him!

I really wanna see Vic and Vaughan progress to become two great strikers and can't fault them as youngsters atm. However, Yakubu has scored more Prem goals than Vic right now and so he should be picked, as well as having the right mentality to play more games... whereas Vic is great coming off the bench right now.

 

Also, we do play better football with Yak on the pitch, regardless of whether he has a partner or not. Let's continue that and stop loosing games now that we can keep the bloody ball and attack more!

They're all different, "best" striker is impossible to answer imo. If you look at the highest level (international) and who's scored our most important goals recently (against Charlton and Metalist) it's McFadden no question but does that make him the best? He certainly wouldn't be the most expensive on the open market, that'd be Yak or AJ, probably not much between them. But Vaughan or (less likely imo) Anichebe in two/three years...who knows?

 

If you were to ask who would score most goals in a season given thirty games of fitness I'd say a toss-up between Yak,AJ and Vaughan...and maybe McFadden, if the team was set up to suit him.

 

In conclusion, I haven't got a clue. That's why DM is paid wads of cash to be the manager and I'm not :( .

who am i to judge? i'm a fan...who are you judge....just because you judge someone in a positive light gives you more right than me...i think not

i stand by what i say anichebe isn't a good target man...he's strong and can be quick but he is not everton's idea of a target man ... he's got a head and the first touch of a bouncy castle

 

and for the record..unlike most of you, i didn't want nugent i thought he was shit...so far i've been proved right...again.

i find it amusing when someone asks who i am to judge when we're constantly judging players as football fans, sort of a hypocritcal word don't you think?

He's going by your avatar Craccer mate, 'tis a bit confusing that you've got a pic of him there when you rate him so lowly :) .

 

Also...on Anichebe, is it just me that thinks he was lucky with the goal against Larissa. Ratty on the comentary was full of how clever he was to nudge the defender but my immediate impression was that he was outpaced and just got lucky with the way the ball fell. Still think that. Having said that a lucky striker is no bad thing to have on the bench.

It's got to be Vaughan for me, Yakubu is crap, Faddy is to inconsistent, Victor is too greedy and tbh just not skilful enough for me, and this season we are starting to see why AJ has had so many clubs at a young age, because he's rubbish aswell.

Yer I agree, imo faddy should just be sold and we should get a decent amount for him 2 put towards midfielders, he's far to inconsistent and there isnt much to his game. we never thought we would be in this situation but we have to many strikers :o that way moyes could keep everyone happy and we would have 4 totally differant types of strikers.

 

Yaks got to be played 5 games on the run with decent service and people will soon start to realise why he got 19 goals etc 5 years on the run, for a shite team aswell!

The problem was in the past that we had no one like Arteta and Pienarr to make them vital passes to Bent and Beattie (well halfway through Beatties time at Everton Arteta wasnt on form like last season) but now we have and I expect goals from Yakubu and co, but going to the main point now I think our best striker Yakubu on goals (shud be more to come) and Johnson on work rate. I think Vaughn and Vic will be better in the future tho. Otherwise I would have Lescott up front 4 us! :D

Anichebe isn't a good target man? Can you name one on the books who's better?

Vaughn isn't lightweight he's fairly strong and puts himself about.True but sadly for him his aggresive style normally lands him on the treatment table.Just look at his fitness record over the last few seasons.

Vic has scored 2 goals this season same as Yak.1 more than Aj 2 more than Vaughny.If you count pace, ability to find the net,strength and a good fitness record for me he is the most effective at the club now and maybe in 2 or 3 years he may be mentioned along with Drogba

It is quite deceptive how he plays, it has to be said. From watching him, he certainly doesn't like he'll be like Drogba in the next ten years, never mind the next few years.

Anichebe isn't a good target man? Can you name one on the books who's better?

Vaughn isn't lightweight he's fairly strong and puts himself about.True but sadly for him his aggresive style normally lands him on the treatment table.Just look at his fitness record over the last few seasons.

Vic has scored 2 goals this season same as Yak.1 more than Aj 2 more than Vaughny.If you count pace, ability to find the net,strength and a good fitness record for me he is the most effective at the club now and maybe in 2 or 3 years he may be mentioned along with Drogba

 

ffs will people stop posting garbage...whether there's a better one on the books is irrelevant he's still not good at it.

vaughan is better imo, anichebe's touch is below parr, and he can't chest or head a ball

Watched Vaughan last night at Luton and the kid is gona be great he's a rough diamond and with a bit of polishing over the remainder of the season we will have a massive talent on our hands. Good luck to the kid and I hope he's over his injury woes.

Yet he has still managed to score bucket loads of goals for Pompey and 'Boro. If we stop hitting it long ball then his heading ability will not matter, whilst his touch with chest or otherwise is clearly better than he has shown. He's already proven those things in this country and once he is in a settled team, settled into the club properly, and the team is settled in its fashion of playing then he'll score loads for us.
