…because he scores goals hth

Yes. Anybody who plays every single game up front for a team as good as ours is going to score some goals. So well done there.

It's important to provide context. We average more possession than any other team by a distance. We've created the 4th highest amount of big chances in the league. We average 14 shots per game which puts us in the top 3. We sit 6th overall on XG.

Simpson's minutes per goal ratio doesn't even put him in the top 20 players in the division.

We can do better.

Not sure I'd back Vincent Pericard to score more than a couple, even in this team.

KKH with an image of himself and Tyreece and a fingers crossed emoji.
Be careful what you wish for. Simpson is vital for us this season at this point.

Of course he's vital. He's the only striker we have!

We’ve had plenty of strikers down the years who couldn’t score to save their lives.

But isn't Simpson a big reason why we are creating so many chances?!

It's not like his a fox in the box striker, he's an essential part of building an attack, creating space for others etc

It makes you wonder if we need a Nicky Ajose type striker to feed off him.

have we had more prolific strikers than Simpson? yes.

is he doing a pretty good job? yes.

are there better strikers than Simpson? obviously

are there worse strikers than Simpson? obviously

do we need a back up, or another striker to add competition and cover for injury and suspensions? yes

are we likely to bring in an experienced/proven striker? no

that's all I have to say about that. A Tyler Smith type would be useful but hard to get.
