Anyone else unimpressed with him - he's a fair run in the side he's hardly posing the threats we need up top.
think he is posing a big threat up front and is a handful for defenders I think it's more that the poor bloke don't score as many goals as he should, he gets in great positions but maybe lacks that quality finish that most of us expect, think the more he plays that goal scoring run is likely to come I hope:smile:
He's a very good player. No striker will score goals in a Phil Brown team. I've said it hundreds of times. We are not set up in a way that benefits the striker. Mooney drops very deep, finds himself out wide a lot. He's almost a false 9 in the current system.
I might agree with you if we were creating chances for him, but we're not.
While we're winning games and in the top half of the league I couldn't give a fig who is scoring the goals, as long as the team is working.
You need a good player up there - it's a critical role to how the team plays - just don't expect 20 goals a season.
