Lineker's skill set would be obsolete and not needed for top teams. No top level CL team would carry a goal hanger like Lineker. Great player in his day but in modern football he would either have to evolve his game or be left behind.

All he does is score goals

 

It will never catch on..........

Yeah but you’re putting a past player into modern times. They would also have access to modern facilities, modern training methods and modern coaching.

They would most likely achieve similar. You can only beat what you are up against.

Thank god someone else could see this.


Ridiculous discussion.

Don’t believe the modesty mate. 
 

Lineker is England’s best striker in my lifetime-the fact that he doesn’t feel the need to tell everybody how good he was (Shearer) doesn’t mean he wasn’t.

 

Prime Lineker today would be prime Aguero, plus he could head the ball.

Hate to be that guy but they'd be crap by modern standards.

Rooney was crap by modern standards. Still in the top 5 striker stats for any metric you care to mention.

😂 that’s so funny, Lineker was a natural goalscorer, is that part of his skill set that’s now obsolete? He had pace then on terrible pitches, he’d be even quicker on today’s pitches.

Goal hanger is a terrible description of a great goalscorer and one of the clubs finest strikers.

Agreed. What a daft thing to say. Lineker played at a time when a defender could decapitate a striker before he got booked. Defenders were far more physical and he still scored loads of goals. Imagine what his numbers might be playing in the modern game in which tackling is virtually outlawed.

"A player that has played a few good games at the start of the season then not heard anything about since. No actual form, no constant performances."

 

Talking about James Justin. Private whatsapp group but had to be posted somewhere....

I am the only city fan in the group. Questioned what games he has been watching.

 

TBH i feel sorry for a few of them as they are Wednesday fans. Delusional about how big they are. Think they are quite hurt about not being invited to the Super League....🤣

Bale lol

 

Kane and Son definitely would, and Reguilon maybe. That's about it. Our fully fit squad is better than theirs, no question.

we literally have 3 right backs in our squad that walk into their first team; that is all that needs to be said about this

 

(also all our CBs, CMs are better than theirs)
