At another wedding this weekend these things are expensive. Anyway quite a few Leeds fans here and the subject of who was better came up between Hasselbank and Yeboah. Originally I thought Tony but now not too sure.
So who was a better player?

Agree2 Disagree0

Yeboah edges it imo

1) Yeboah an icon who excited me more with his superb unpredictability

2) Very similar goals per game average with JFH for Leeds and a better career goals per game average than JFH.

3) . He could score ALL types of goals. more than any other Leeds United striker/ forward Charles, Clarke, Jones, Jordan, Chapman, Wallace, Cantona, JFH, Viduka etc

There is one goal though that perhaps I can't imagine Yeboah scoring

and that was tbe intricate twists and turns with supreme balance hattrick goal by Mark Viduka against Liverpool.

JFH better all round player imo and performed at a high level for a couple other clubs including European competition so gets the nod for me. Really though, it's a coin toss between the two.

Baz, as for your Duke quattro reminiscing, as I previously once confessed on this forum attending that game got me into a spot of trouble (deservedly) .

Ooo corks what good question.

I'll have to answer in two parts.

If I was a manager wanting a goal scorer for my team then hasselbank. Know what you get brilliant goal scorer all types of goals.

As a fan Tony. Explosive. Unpredictable. A force of nature. His goals versus Liverpool and Wimbledon will be played as long as football is. Just not with us for long enough.

Brother George I am most intrigued. ??. please can you recount said incident . one more time please!

Ben that goal ( part of his hatrick) against Wimbledon was phenomenal

as were his other hatricks for Leeds United (especially the UEFA cup hattrick vs Monaco )

26 Nov 2023 21:38:05
Both great players but different. Hard to say who was 'better'. Maybe ed001 will do a comparison piece for us?

{Ed001's Note - I have added that to the list. Good one alf, those two will make for a good comparison. Two players I used to love to watch, unless they were playing against my team.}

Baz I missed an important family event. The type where someone usually says "I do".

27 Nov 2023 00:58:23
Some players just have that magic don't they baz. Yeboah. Papisse cisse. Demand ba. Lua lua. To name a few. Such amazing and powerful strikers but never really lasted more than a couple of seasons.

{Ed001's Note - Demba Ba had a degenerative knee condition which made it a miracle he played in the Premier League at all.}

27 Nov 2023 04:21:19
George you made the right decision ?.

27 Nov 2023 05:50:07
Baz Thanks ?? bro. Love it. The guilt I felt in advance offset by each of the Duke's goals especially the winner ? which sent me into jubilant unrepentant euphoria.

27 Nov 2023 07:02:08
That was one of the best matches I’ve ever attended!

27 Nov 2023 08:24:56
Thanks Ed I look forward to that!

{Ed001's Note - I hope it lives up to your expectations then!}

27 Nov 2023 08:36:16
Yeboah for me, that goal against Liverpool sticks long in my memory.

27 Nov 2023 11:41:21
ED I didn't know that about Ba. I remember he was injured a lot but never new he had a knee problem.
He did manage to score after the famous Gerrard slip. I think that was one of his last.

I would like to add yakubu and gyan to my list of African finishers.

{Ed001's Note - it was only because Chelsea had so much money they could afford to take the chance. A whole bunch of other teams walked away from a deal because of the risk of him breaking down.}

27 Nov 2023 13:11:01
You got two friends cork?

27 Nov 2023 13:12:27
He wasn't on par with either player, but can anyone remember the wonder volley Doukara scored against Forest (Yeboah esk too)

28 Nov 2023 00:03:55
Good one Aus!
