I know he was linked with us before he signed for Oxford, but Christian Ribeiro retires with a knee injury aged 27

Hes a natural goal scorer. If he can stay fit, he's got a good chance of getting in the England squad in the summer.

A lot can happen between now and the end of the season, but you'd have to think it's a long shot.  Remember maybe 2 years ago now Charlie and Vardy were called up to the squad.  Surprisingly Vardy got on Charlie didn't.... however tbf to Vardy he then went and scored decent numbers and won the league, so settled the argument.

Austin has been plagued with injuries for the last year or so, in fact he's been plagued with injuries most of his career but there is no denying when he plays he has a fantastic goal scoring record.

I always like watching natural goalscorers, the 2 headers yesterday were things of beauty, it looks simple but isn't.  Having said that Everton were shockingly poor.

Charlie is by far the best natural finisher I have seen for the Town and one of the best I have seen.

Its about knowing where you are in relation to the goal and the keeper at all times and just directing the ball towards the goal, with head or a pass, no need to break the net just pass it into the spaces, often very close to the keeper.

Not many English/British players ever have that skill as the modern game is more about power and pace.

Austin isn't even the archetypical English centre forward he is a breed apart and that can work againt him playing for the national side as sometimes it shows up as laziness, being unwilling to track his man back and overall not contributing to team play as much.

But given the ball in the box he will always score goals at any level and that includes national level with service.

Could well be right. Over my years we've had something like 16 or so 20 goals a season strikers.  Some at times for Town like Simon Cox looked better than CA, but never quite did it elsewhere, others like Chalky White had good numbers at below top flight, and actually got more clinical as he got older, but needed plenty of chances to score.

Duncan Shearer and Jimmy Quinn both had a wider range of goals than Charlie, having shots like the proverbial mule.

Nicky Ajose would be a classic example, a clinical finisher at Town seems unable to fit in elsewhere.
