Is Scunthorpe away that depressing? ;-)
Azeez had his limitations, but he did have the best goals to minutes on the pitch of any of our strikers in our promotion season. He also did work as hard as any of our forwards in doing the closing down work.

Not a brilliant player, but one who did a good job for us and would have done more than Barnett this past season, for a lot less money.
In whoever's defense Azeez was not much good coming on when we were behind. With a team sitting back on a lead then he had little threat. In a knockout game like the play off final second leg or in a game where we were ahead then he made oppo teams/managers less able to be bold.

That one take-down and finish against Exeter scratched at the minds. Shame the superb header at Charlton couldn't do the same for Barnett as it was a helluva strike.
Actually I have to get something off my chest. The signings of Deji and Kwesi seem to lack any imagination. It's Neal Ardley in full on back to basics, no frills mode. It doesn't smack of someone who has sized up the challenge of L1 and changed his approach accordingly. If we are struggling at Christmas I can see Ardley gone.

Perhaps his hands are tied with funds, but our finish to last season suggests we need to get more radical than this.
In retrospect I wish we'd had Bayo and Azeez over Barnett this season.

An Azeez free zone
Let us not forget that it was Azeez who won us the penalty that allowed Akinfenwa take the credit for our promotion.

Yeah but you'd think muscle memory and a bit of psychology could get him to do something other than the chicken dance in front of goal. oh well. Was he faster than Chris Arthur?

Saddest thing is that composure in front of goal should be coachable. And if he could fix it he'd be worth a mint. Surprised nobody's managed to sort him out.

Azzez was the ultimate jigsaw striker but when you have a player with one sole strength and rarely play to it by putting a few decent balls over the top , rather than an aimless hoof, well, you reap what you sow to a degree. Much in the same way thinking Tanner was a striker, let alone a Tubbs replacement, was a tad stupid.

Azeez covered for two people closing down defences whan Akinfenwa was on the field. Made it much easier to keep Akinfenwa where he could do his best work. That and his pace, which would scare League 2 or League 1 defenders were positive attributes, to offset against his poor finishing.

Not sure I'd go so far as to say I rated Azeez but, other than scoring goals, he played his part. He wasn't quite shit enough in front of goals for defences to treat him with contempt and leave him. And he knew where to run. Yes his composure in front of goal was tragic but his pace and positioning had an impact - an effect on the opposition. Hylton had no impact and no effect on the opposition. Completely understand Kyle's point about him not really giving a fuck for us. It showed clearly.

Azeez's finish against Exeter must be his cleanest strike of a football ever. Lovely goal.
Surely Barnett must be forced out? The big problem is he strikes me as the sort who wouldn't actually give two shits about training with the kids , never playing and getting his 8k a month. And who wouldn't in his shoes? Hes not exactly on an upward trajectory

Azeez certainly smacks Michael Owen's botty when it comes to League Two goals. Agreed!

McDonald signing would mean we really only have Barnett as a target man as McDonald is a 5ft 10 fox in the box. It could signal NA is seriously thinking about changing our style.

Well he would have to
Kyle - I'd have him over Barnett or McDonald because he's a thinking player. But I'd be looking at a more physical player as we have 'proper strikers' in Taylor, Appiah and Poleon

Many speedy players lack composure but he still managed to score more goals than players like Michael Owen ever did in League Two.

but hed be up against better defences with less chances. Didn't he have a go at L1 for Bury or someone and was found wanting/shit? Is that how we came by him?
