Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez aside we have no goalscorers. No player that ever looks like scoring. Giggs has scored 2 goals, Scholes has 1, Carrick 1, Hargreaves 2, Fletcher 2, Anderson 0.

Giggs and Scholes both seem to get in to shooting positions but both are always reluctant to shoot, particularly Scholes. These 2 are older I know but you could get around 30 goals a season between these pair a few years back and now it's 3. This is costing us dear and the fact we didn't start Tevez and Rooney yesterday meant Rooney was our only goal threat.

Do we rely to heavily on our Rooney, Ronaldo and Tevez?

disagree there :eek: . my points :

1. Scholesy is a holding and defensive player now and is playing too deep back to score

2. Its Anderson's first season

3. Hargreaves is a defensive player

4. Giggsy has been bad but is not wat u call a goal scorer.... maybe i agree here

5. nani has been brilliant

6. Carrick is cementing his place
I disagree with this. A player with Scholes's ability should be scoring more goals. He is not a defensive midfielder, granted he does play more deep. Rooney was our only goal threat on sat, and he was the only player who scored. we can't just rely on 3 players to score all the time.

lol, kind of puts this thread to bed didnt it Scott? :p

What a goal by Scholes tonight.
Well not really. i said he should have more confidence in shooting and someone should take responsibility of scoring away from the main 3 and thats whatbhappened. When you see a goal like that, you'd think he'd let fly a bit more often.
