while shola has been one of the most frustrating players to watch he's had more experience than best, not that I would want either as back up for carroll but shola seems to be able to grab the odd goal or so. best has done nothing to convince me he deserves an extended run in the team.

if he's really going to get his chance he should start in the cup games, the one at stevenage could do for a start- it can build up his confidence to play against teams from the lower divisions first. in the prem? no way. it's too much of a risk to be playing him at a higher level when his confidence is rock bottom

If anything this shows how little quality in depth we have among our strikers, I'd swap both xisco and best for a half-decent striker with a little quality and who can be arsed although I can't think of any realistic targets available now.

IMO if it wasn't against wigan shola wouldn't have scored either. he's shit but best is shittier

almost a decent argument that, apart form the last para. and i agree maybe he should start at stevenage and play in cup game but give the lad a chance before making up your mind on how shit h e is

Jesus would have buried Simpson's cross.

To be honest, all joking aside, it's depressing that we're debating over the options of Ameobi and Best as our back up for Carroll.


Agreed. Best has been here a year or so now - had Best been rated, I'd have expected him to have got plenty of games once promotion was sewn up last season - and what is more, he'd have bagged a few goals too. We are in no position to experiment - we need points. 5 games is too much time to experiment. Given this league this year, you can do an awful lot of damage and a lot of good in that space of time.

There may be takers for best's services, I would do a deal.

I have to say too that I am bothered by ANY talking up of Best from within SJP. Given the history, it leaves me uneasy about who he might replace in the side.

I don't see anything about Best's game that is encouraging. Other than a hooked clearance and a missed chance, what did he offer the other day. He was hiding between players when we had the ball. In games I've seen, he often looks on the back foot and almost like he can't be arsed. A poor man's Shola, god forbid...

I think some are being very unfair to best on here like...























as that shot didnt hit the corner flag, it was only 18 yards wide.. :15:

tiote's lovechild - 4/1/2011 15:19

no not at all, im just saying that when out of form players often need a good run to build up confidence. the lad has never played for 40,000 plus fans on a regular basis before. too many times our fans get on the backs of decent players when their not performing and we miss out on some quailty not very often granted, but our fans can be daunting to say the least.


He is fucking shit mate, i'm all for giving players a chance. I wanted him to do well because he plays for our national team. Robbie Keane is severely lacking sharpness, Kevin Doyle is decent but not an international striker. Best is a disgrace, can't you see he is shit? It's like when Ranger comes on, people see the good attributes. You don't have to light up the league for people to notice you, just put a shift in and play well. He is incapable of ANYTHING. That chance against Wigan was one he could've threw his hat in the ring for a starting place, he even blew that in emphatic fashion by hitting the corner flag. Worse than useless

i'd try best and shola tomorrow, let the lad start. see what he does and if as you lot say he doesn't show any signs then put ranger on.
best is at the club now try and do something with him
lovenkrands has had his chance, best next, ranger will always be worth a punt with younger legs in the second half.

that's 3 valuable points gone if both of them start, i'd sooner obese nolan partner shola up front than best. in this league we have to play our best possible team against relegation rivals to stay in it, especially with more difficult fixtures coming our way after that.

leon boy's not cut out for it. he struggled to prove any worth whatsoever against ipswich and even fucking posh.

The odds are really low for best to score tonight. actually around 3-1, tho saying that, its also got carroll as having more chance then him.

It will probably end up in the gold section and be used as a lesson for us to judge on people being given time..

although thats not to say best will score again
