Quoted from grimsby pete


I agree with you on this one, in this league you do need a strong person up front,

He does not have to be 6ft 3in but able to withstand a battering from the thugs that call themselves defenders,

Not that our defenders are thugs mind you.


Pearson isn't a thug, but he could certainly take up wrestling if his footballing career doesn't work out! I'm always amazed that we don't concede more penalties at corners from his endless grappling. I know everyone seems to be at it these days, but surely the referees are going to begin do something about it at some point?

Pittman did reasonably well up front on his own because he is strong and compact and had a good leap so he could manage to win some headers. If not a big targetman, we certainly need somebody with this sort of strength who can cope with the buffeting from the meaty defenders in the Conference.

"In general, it would be best if there is an element of physicality to the striker,"

I personally don't see how this really translates to some of the statements made.

We need a striker who can hold it up no doubt, probably get shot down for this but someone in the mould of Lee Trundle (when he was decent)  doesn't have to be tall, just intelligent with a bit of strength about him.

I don't know what the fuss is about - we do need the option of a strong striker that can hold the ball up.
I enjoyed Tues night and we played some great football but in every game defenders have no option but to 'get rid' from time to time and pump the ball away. On Tuesday we were unable to hold it up with Ross (Who played his part and showed great effort) so the ball came back with Halifax on the ball.
The other point is that LJL is useful in our own box to mark a tall player (and there are plenty of them in the Conference) at Free kicks and corners.  I'm sure that's what is in Paul's mind.
It doesn't mean that we still can't play most of our football on the deck.
