on the topic of 25+ a year strikers, we've never really had that in the past and it's never debilitated us cos most of our players would wade in with goals throughout the season... even Schmeichal! But in the early nineties and mid nineties we had likes of Hughes, McClair, Cantona and everyone wading in with 15 goals a season or so rather than one scoring them all. Very much like Chelsea at the moment in fact.
That was my point, deroiste! We've never required a 25+ goals a season striker before and whilst Ruud has been excellent for us, that's cos we've played to suit him... if we were to get someone like Torres, we'd be going back to that old style of play where anyone from the wingbacks onwards is gonna score for us. And I for one like the sound of that!
