Unbelievable, just back from injury , just getting minutes in, and some folk still slag him off.
FFs. I give up.
Bobby aint the problem, the front line is pretty strong tbh. when all fit we have so many options.
I'm convinced some of the people on that forum are the same people we see on twitter. I.E., teens that play more FIFA than they watch actual football games.
For me, its the inability to look at things as a whole. That need to always isolate one player and blame him for a set of problems or all our problems. Usually, you'll also notice that this type of criticism from that type of person will be particularly virulent towards the forwards. It's no coincidence, it comes with the territory. If you watch football games the way you play FIFA then all you see is ''we didn't score enough goals, therefore let me direct my criticism at the players who are supposed to score those goals''. Of course, that way of looking at things blinds you from most if not all other problems a football team might have, including those who effectively cripple the forward's ability to score those goals you're so focused on.
For example, at the start of the season, I remember us still scoring goals (1 or 2 per game), but we constantly conceded first and allowed at least 2 per game. Somehow, the fact that we'd repeatedly lose games 3-2 or with similar score lines (with Nunez and Salah scoring one each) was seen by some as a forwards problem rather than a team problem in the middle of the park and defensive areas of the pitch. The underlying message is basically as ridiculous as ''We lost 3-2, but it's because Salah/Nunez/Bobby should've had a hat-trick instead of just scoring one! I saw it!! He missed a few times!!!
Just to put things into context. When your team allows 2 goals per game and after every game you're moaning about us not scoring by solely directing your anger and criticism at the forwards and completely ignoring the real problem, what you're asking for is what, about 3 goals a game? That would make for a 114 goals PL season. 85 (us), 83 (City) and 99 (City) is the number of goals scored in a season by the last three PL winners
Obviously, I'm not saying players can't be criticized individually as this would be ridiculous, but most of the time a team is heavily underperforming as we are this season it's rarely going to be as easy as pointing the finger at one or two players and act like you found the root of all the problems, least of all the forwards
