Surely after 8 season as a professional footballer , under a host of different managers , non have been able to work out his best position or how to play him yet ?  

I still don't think of him as a striker , maybe a forward but more as a midfielder , but we don't pick the team or style or tactics . Would love to see him be our cult hero , like Livo or Lester .

Jack was only prolific at chesterfield really , although he did have two good spells at Forest and like i said won loads of pennos for GTFC .
Who knows where LJL's career path will take him , perhaps onto bigger and better things than Jack ????

I don't really regard these two players as similar. Lester was much more trickier with the ball at his feet, and of course was more than willing to tumble given the opportunity, enticing challenges and teasing defenders (that's not to say he wasn't strong when he wanted to be).

LJL is probably a bit more direct and uses that strength in situations where he could otherwise go down. I don't think he has any trickery as such.

LJL is also used to spearhead our attack, whereas Lester was the one playing alongside the so-called 'big man' (Livvo, Nogan etc) and was afforded a licence to be a bit more creative.

But I can see how their scoring records are similar. Lester never really gave the impression he would be prolific either while at Town.
