Mr No one important
Aug 8, 2013
Up North somewhere
Can someone please tell me what I am missing concerning the abilities of Mr Straker. He may be a nice chappie but I am only interested in his footballing skills. I read Mr Brown rates him and is impressed with his performances. However since the first time of seeing Anthony Straker on a football field I am certainly not impressed. In my humble opinion the man cannot defend, cannot head a ball with any success, lacks the confidence to take on any opponent with the ball in order to use his supposed speed, very poor at crossing the ball and finally has a very poor scoring ratio. He is a weak link in any formation the Manager puts out yet gains preference over other possible alternatives. Is it a case of teachers pet, favouritism or am I blind to qualities in Mr Straker?:unsure:
