Kemar 4 goals in 6 games. 5.5 million great business.

Agree0 Disagree0

05 Nov 2019 14:03:30
Wex For Anderlecht mainly but also us as he was never extending his deal with us. Best to pocket a fee.

05 Nov 2019 14:34:57
Bamford 4 goals in 15 games, yep Roofe deal was great for us!

05 Nov 2019 15:03:04
Never extending his deal because Radz wouldn't put his hand in his pocket.

05 Nov 2019 16:32:27
Wex Radz can't pay for everything. For Kemar, maybe he could've stayed and it didn't have to be about the money but it usually always is.

05 Nov 2019 17:40:28
You can't compare a goal scoring record from one country with a player in another. they are completely different and come with different challenges.

05 Nov 2019 18:57:10
And different team . it is tempting to compare but you can’t really

Look at Forlan great at every country and international but useless over here.

05 Nov 2019 19:19:04
Do Anderlecht play against park bus defences.

05 Nov 2019 19:54:01
Spot on Alf.

05 Nov 2019 19:41:00
Wex, I am sure you need no persuading in concurring that if Leeds fail to go up again this year. then it will be a direct result of Radz and Orta ( lack of ) recruitment and selling our better players ( for a song) .

05 Nov 2019 19:43:26

Roofe 15 goals in 28 games last season . we definitely miss that.

05 Nov 2019 20:13:21
Yes we can compare because he was here last season scored before he came to us scored when he was with us and still scoring ul.

05 Nov 2019 22:04:37
True last season he was great but (playing devils advocate)

But. a lot of roofes goals come early on when we was still
In shock and awe once teams got use to us and parked bus ect like this year his goals did dry up a little. this year would he of struggled more? Maybe?

Still think he is missed and great player.

05 Nov 2019 22:12:36
I think you'll find his dry spell was more due to injury than anything.

05 Nov 2019 23:20:12
According to stats I can see Roofe scored 15 league goals in 2507 min last season. That's a goal every 167 min.

Bamford scored 9 in 1449 which is a goal every 161 min.

Both had injuries both played in the same team. That's a fair comparison.

06 Nov 2019 07:28:32
Yep and neither fired us to promotion.

06 Nov 2019 08:09:09
Stats again, gate whe people use them, Bamford this year 281 min per goal Berardis is better at 180 should we play him up front. Fact is Roofe performs better than Bam and is more of a goal threat. He chose to move so not a question of us getting rid we just never replaced him, said we were using Edmo as back up and he was not even on bench against QPR.

06 Nov 2019 09:26:21
wex for the record i agree i think it was injury over form.

06 Nov 2019 11:06:58
People can't have it both ways Bielsa.
Either goals per min is important for all strikers or their threat/ effort and team impact is what counts.
Lots moaning about Bamford but when compared apples to apples with Roofe he did better.

06 Nov 2019 12:08:38
Canada I think a better example of stats would be points per player when they scored.

06 Nov 2019 12:24:50
That could simply show you score against poor teams. I want a striker who can score against anyone!

06 Nov 2019 14:08:43
Bielsabub you say you hate stats but mention Harrison’s assist stats? Stats can be mis leading. For instance Klich may do an unbelievable pass to set Harrison free and Harrison easily cuts it back for a tap in for someone. Isn’t it Harrison who gets the assist stat and not Klich?

06 Nov 2019 19:01:25
What's it matter anyway he Bamford, Roofe debate? One doesn't play for us anymore and the other one is in Belgium!

06 Nov 2019 21:18:58
Cork i use stats for the individual to evaluate their performance. I never use them to compare different players as i do not see how you can unless they are playing in the same team, playing the same games with all the same players. same pressures, injury free etc. etc. These are all things you need to factor in. Said before i can use stats to back up any opinion or shoot it down but means nothing. So if some one cherry picks a stat and says that proves my point i will say, oh no it doesnt. Bamford is playing really well but four goals and no assists tells me something is missing.

06 Nov 2019 22:04:37
Bielsa sorry to pick but you compared Harrison to Dallas’ assists. Is that not comparing one player to another? You can’t pick and chose when stats matter. I do see your point I think but it’s a bit off centre.

06 Nov 2019 23:05:40
No i said it was a toss up between the two. So both as good as each other. Fact last five games sees Harrison improving and Dallas staying the same edged me to Harrison. Not saying he is better as i do not rate either that highly. Harrison however is improving and may change my mind about him but Dallas is Dallas, gives 100% but can not see him improving. I was not comparing them as they play different positions.

bielsabud what a brilliant idea. Put Berardi up front. It has been too long since we had a serious aerial threat lol.
