On the days when he doesn't score Wood is no better than Doukara who many fans ridicule. Doukara has changed a lot og games whilst at leeds for the better. I don't think he is good enough if we are promotion contenders but he is a decent player. A packet of crisps and a ribena was one fan'ssuggestion when transfer fees were mentioned re Doukara . I wonder what they will be saying if Wood doesn't start scoring soon. Wood has missed two straight forward one on ones with the keeper which is disappointing but he is in good company. Robbie Keane missed fourteen consecutive one on ones when at Leeds. I was never keen on him either. He played much better for his national team than he ever did for us. Just an aside to put Wood's misses into some sort of context.

Was it a 1 ltr bottle of ribena or 300ml?

I've always had a soft spot for the Duke, he's not the most gifted but when I've watched him he doesn't half put a shift in, and that goal.

Its all a matter of new gaffer new preferences. Nothing wrong with douk. But please sell wood. It will cost us millions if we don't sell now.

Aus, its always a risk, if he has another good season his price will rise, and he should get more service and therefore chances this season.

'Doukara has changed a lot of games whilst at leeds for the better' that is a stretch Hesslian. I certainly remember a performance against Ipswich (I think) but struggle to name many more

Replace him with who at this stage Ausman ?

17 Aug 2017 16:08:24
And when have you ever heard him complain? Proper pro

If we some newspapers are saying that wood has told Leeds he wants to join Burnley then it's a no brainer but to sell him. its crazy to keep a player who wants to move on, can we be sure the so called easy chances he is missing of late is not down to is head being elsewhere. Take the money and let us move on.

Its easy to say Woody will say Wood will score more goals this season as he will have better service, BUT, it can depend on the type of service provided. Wood is better closer to goal in and around the box. If we keep threading balls through for him to run onto and go one on one with the keeper then I don't think he will score that many as he is not really that kind of player. if we want to get the best out of him we need to get crosses pinged in and make use of his ability in the box a bit more.

You are supposing he will score a lot og goals this season notts. we have other options and need to buy somebody thst suits our play. Not sure wood does.

18 Aug 2017 07:39:20
Who then Ausman ? Didn't Wood's 30 goals last season suit our style of play ?

18 Aug 2017 09:27:49
Based on the above, Aus, you're describing a false 9 which Wood isn't mobile enough to do, coming deep from midfield. Ekuban has the pace for that. Wood is actually more the centre of a front three when we go forward and a lone striker when we don't have the ball. Part of what makes his play frustrating is that he's not exactly a centre-forward. doesn't hold up the ball and force overlaps nearly enough for my liking. He did well as a lone striker last season with little support and scored a lot of goals but when it didn't work it really didn't work. Is he fast enough, creative enough or good enough with the ball at his feet to help build attacks?
