Fully agree with Mc A. Liverpool needs an out and out goals scorer. That is why I was so surprised that in all the talk of selling Carrol there was never any mention of swapping him for Ba plus money. Unfortunately the window for getting him at such a cheap rate is now closed. Judging by last weekend I think Liverpool and a lot of other clubs will regret not taking this great opportunity.
Suarez missed 3 sitters, and a host of other chances on Saturday. Andy Carroll would have buried all of them. Suarez should be supplying Andy Carroll with chances. If that had happened on Saturday, Liverpool would have won.
There's more to an excellent striker than scoring goals. When we played against Gomel at home last week, he was superb and didn't score one goal. Luis is a real team player.Instead of moaning about Suarez's missed opportunity, you have to ask yourself - where was Borini during all of this? He hardly played a part in the WBA game.
The stat from the Everton v United game tonight is a telling one... "They (Manchester United) had 51 shots fewer than Liverpool in the last season, but scored 41 more goals". They don't need one striker to score all their goals, they need to share the goals around the team. Not to mention the support players going with him. Carroll up top with Borini and Suarez cutting in is the answer for me.
Suarez would be ideal playing behind one or two skilled strikers but as a lone striker he is not going to get the goals needed on a regular basis.The boy has great skill but not deadly and does not have a strikers instinct, in my humble opinion.
